  1. The pictures look great. Would like to know how you rate the forgiveness of these clubs.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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!
  6. 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.
  7. 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 Sub70.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. I purchased a pair earlier this season and they are the most comfortable golf shoes I own. There was absolutely no "break in" period for me.
  11. Has anyone demoed the utility clubs. My 5 and 6 irons don't have a large enough gap so looking to replace my 5 iron with a utility iron. At this point I don't want to put another hybrid in the bag. The 5 utility looks like a good way to increase the gap. The clubs looks better in the pictures in this thread than Sub 70's website.
  12. Not sure where the Mizunos are coming from but I have purchased a couple of things from quickshipgolf in the past and everything was legit.
  13. I have always struggled with getting my right elbow behind my pivot so this training aid seems like it would really help. Wanted to see more reviews before pulling the trigger. Thought the Planemate would help with this but it really didn't. Let us know how things work.
  14. Just ordered some Z Stars. Won't get a premium ball for less than this.
  15. Whatever grip you choose ask Sub 70 if they take the grip weight into account when figuring out the swing weight. If you look at the weight difference between the grips recommended they vary by quite a bit. If you are not sensitive to swing weight then it might not a big deal but grip weight can change the swing weight by more than just a couple of points.
  16. What does everyone think of Tony saying not to play matte golf balls in the most recent podcast? The Maxfli golf balls would fall in that category and now I am questioning my choice. MTB-X might become my ball until MGS finds something wrong with it. I am not going to buy in bulk until this year's golf ball test is released.
  17. I have played both and find they perform very similar for me. (MTBx and Maxfli Tour) At full price it would be Snell they are a better value. However, Dicks has been discounting the Maxfli balls. Currently they are buy 1 get one free so they are under $20 a dozen. Don't see how you could get a better ball for the money. There have been other promos at 2 for $40 and 2 for $50.
  18. I have been using Ping wedges for the past 3 years. Before that, I was playing Callaway MD2 wedges. The Glide wedges are just a little bit more forgiving on full shots and that really helps me. Around the greens they perform about the same as the MD2. I really like the looks of the Vokey and Callaway wedges but it is hard to give up that little bit of forgiveness.
  19. On longer irons like a 5 and 4 SGI irons would really help my game. The problem that I run into is the amount of offset. When a club has too much offset and not much loft it does not look like the ball is going to get in the air. Technically this is not true but I have not been able to get past that and if I could it would improve my score overall.
  20. One other option is to look for something on Facebook Marketplace. There are some good push carts for not that much money. I have a Clicgear 3.0 and really like it if you are looking for new.
  21. Wish they would leak the results to the forum members first so we can go on a Ebay buying spree before the general public has a chance. haha
  22. When Dick's has the Maxfli Tour on sale for 2 dozen for $50 it is really hard to beat. At full price I would go for Snell. I have played the Black and the MTB X and they were both performed well for me. Based on the MSG ball test both of the balls should perform very close to the same. I am still trying to decide on my 2020 ball and purchased 2 dozen Maxfli tour balls to try out in the spring.
  23. For the past few years I have been struggling steeping the shaft in transition. No matter what my body would not let the club head fall behind me in transition. After using the plane mate a couple weeks my body was finally able to feel the correct move. After the first few weeks it has been much easier for me to work on drills that help me to not steepen the shaft in transition. I still have a ton of practice to do but am moving in the right direction. If you have a flat back swing and then steepen the shaft in transition this is a good training aid. It is pricey but about the cost of two lessons. There is no way a pro would have been able to stop this fault in my swing in the first two sessions.
  24. I put all of my grips on using air. Putting some grip solvent in the end right before install really helps. It gives you a little bit of time after the grip is on to do some small adjustments to alignment. The downside is you can't play with the club right away.
