  1. I purchased the SkyPro swing analyzer about 3 or 4 years ago and can't say it helped my swing at all. It has pointed out some flaws in where my club is in the swing, but I was never able to use it to make me better. My tendency is to take the club too far on the inside in the takeaway and then come slightly over the top in the early downswing. It is easy to see that in the SkyPro app but that only told me what I already knew. The SkyPro is not that well made. The first one had to go back under warranty because it stopped charging. The replacement did the same thing and SkyPro would not w
  2. Mike Bender teaches felling like the arms move first and then followed by the hip drive later in the swing. His Instagram is filled with useful information on how to make this work. When I drive with my legs first my arms get too far behind my pivot causing all sorts of issues. When I feel like my arms get a "head start" things sync up much better. https://www.instagram.com/mikebendergolf/
  3. There is a knock off smart ball on Amazon for about $10. It is not as high of quality as the original but is less of an investment if it does not work out. It might have been better to get the legit version to compensate Chuck for his invention but was not sure if I would use it. As it turns out I hardly use it at all, after watching the TXG video it seems like that could be a mistake.
  4. TXG had a lot of good things to say about Sub70. All the clubs performed very well especially for the price point. If I were in the market for new clubs Sub70 would be on my list. When I replaced my irons last year the 699 pro was not yet available but if it was, they probably would have been in my bag.
  5. Peanut butter filled pretzels are my go to. Good combination of carbs and protein.
  6. I play right and putted left handed for about 2 years. I really wanted to putt using a line on the ball. Looking over the ball putting right hand the line pointed left of the target. No matter where I moved the ball position or my head it never helped. When looking at the line putting left handed the line looked like it was pointing looking at the hole. It did not take long to get the feel for short putts but distance control took some time to get a feel for. My grip putting either side is exactly the same, right hand lower with a reverse overlap grip. This year I am back to putting ri
  7. The pictures look great. Would like to know how you rate the forgiveness of these clubs.
  8. I use them for driver only since I have the stepped version and it is way to high for a fairway wood or iron. Until a couple weeks ago I did not know they had a shorter version for fairway woods and irons. At some point I might give them a try.
  9. I have been playing with one for about 2 years. The stepped version really helps with consistent tee height and they last forever. I just can't see how you could hit the tee before the ball and if you did the shot would be awful no matter what tee you used.
  10. Switched to yellow this year and really like it. It is easier to see in the air and in the grass for me. Currently I am playing the Z-star yellow and before that the Maxfli Tour matte green. Didn't like how hard it was to keep the matte balls clean but would try to Maxfli Tour yellow in the future. It seems like more of my golfing group are putting different colored balls in play. A couple years ago everyone used white balls.
  11. 100% a fan of a push cart. I don't care if anyone thinks there is a stigma associated with using one. My back really appreciates not having to carry my bag!
  12. Working on having the back swing a little steep and then shallowing out in the downswing should help most golfers. Matt is an extreme example of this. I have recorded my swing when trying to imitate his swing and it looks pretty normal. It is just an exaggeration to help fix my tendency to get the club behind me in the back swing and then steepening the shaft in transition.
  13. 5.6 - Westfield, IN Callaway Apex CF16 - 140 carry I have been following Sub70 golf for about a year now after hearing about them in the MSG most wanted testing. Looking at the clubs they look premium at a DTC price. If the 699 Pros were available last fall when I was looking for a new iron set I most likely would have purchased them. The standard 699s had just a bit too much offset for me. It seems like most of the products have done good in testing and the customer service seems to be outstanding. There is a thread on the forms were everyone has positive things to say about
  14. It was really fun to watch both of the videos you were in. Glad to see they are as genuine as they appear online. Back in the day it was really nice to have Matt on the MGS forum. It really makes me mad that a couple of a-holes chased him away.
  15. I typically play later in the day so I have not played much in the morning to test the waterproofing. I used to play early in the morning and having wet feet stinks.
