  1. Love it! I was close to pulling the trigger on the Launchpad irons last night but my son guilted me out of it. Next time I go alone. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  2. I wear a Garmin S60 everyday and while golfing as my GPS. I could easily drop it for golf but it would be hard to give up the notification functions it provides. Yesterday's day of travel hell is a great example of never having to look at my phone to see flight delays, gate changes, meetings, etc... All of this goes straight to my wrist to tell me I'm screwed.

    Your ball?

    I’ve been using the Duo Soft all winter on my launch monitor. Here is my take; I’ve cracked 3 of them but it is after about 500 plus hits on each of them. Currently working on cracking the fourth. The Duo Pro has been much more durable, generates about 2,000 more RPM on full wedge shots than the Duo and gives me 4 or 5 MPH more ball speed on my longer clubs. Both balls go about the same distance despite the ball speed difference. Both balls feel great off all clubs but I do prefer the feel of the Pro since it lets me know exactly where I hit the ball on the club face. My driver swing is around 95 and the fastest ball speeds are coming from the Srixon Z Star XV, then the ProV1x and lastly the Snell MTBX. With full bag gapping the Duo Pro gives me the best gaps. The firmer balls create bigger gaps for me from 9-6. Wedges the same distances and hybrids and driver the firmer balls are longer but not by much. I’ll be in Florida in a few weeks and after trying a bunch of balls I’m only taking the Duo Pros. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  5. Need some help. My 15 year old started golfing last year and made the JV team using the Tour Edge Bazooka box set. He hits the driver, 3 wood and hybrid pretty well but can’t elevate the irons at all. He is now 5’8” and a whopping 105 pounds and could probably move into a mans set based on height but not on strength. He hits my graphite Launchers pretty well but even as a beginner he understands it isn’t cool to actually show up at the course with them. Should a beginner his age play graphite or steel? And what iron sets should we check out that will help him get the ball up in the air? Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  6. I'd point out that you need to determine your golf goals. My goal is to play the best I can without practice. To do that I play the widest soled clubs in the game and by switching to them I lowed my handicap around 5 strokes with the same crappy swing. RickyBobby nailed it, all my misses are the same as they used to be just not nearly as bad.
  7. I missed the entire fantasy football draft. Ended up with 5 QBs on the bench. One starting RB out for the season and my second starting RB was a backup. That being said I finished a hair under .500 for the season but was in the playoff hunt all year. Towards the end my team was pretty good. Point is a lot can change and in this format hang in there.
  8. I haven’t seen the ads but the clubs are pricey. I went to a Srixon demo day and the Srixon guy tried like crazy to make the Srixon drivers work for me and he couldn’t. For the heck of it he handed me the XXIO and said try this and it was just a really good fit. I’ll admit if I didn’t have a large store credit I doubt I would have dropped that much on a stock driver. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  9. My team is like the Dodgers are in baseball and that is built for the regular season. I need to pick up some studs to make any noise in the playoffs if I even get there. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  10. I’m starting to think you guys are indirectly making fun of me. I love my XXIO driver. It’s light weight and 46” shaft allow me to swing it about 4 MPH faster than other drivers. I have a one way miss with it and although I try every year to get something else nothing has come close to beating it. My buddies don’t make fun of it because they are giving me hell about my Launcher irons. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  11. I purchased the Fiberbuilt Flight Deck for my Skytrak and love it. I played 72 yesterday and no elbow pain. Not only is the mat forgiving on the joints it really seems to allow for accurate readings. Only downside was the hitting grass was about a 1/4 inch higher than where you strand on mine so I purchased a big rubber mat to slide under where you stand to level it.

  12. Weather permitting I’ll take my SkyTrak outdoors and give it a whirl. Indoors it is awesome and the complaints I see are using it outdoors in direct sunlight. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  13. I’m out of the country right now and the only thing I miss is my home launch monitor. I don’t know if it helps or not either but boy is it fun playing golf on. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  14. For what it's worth I have been testing golf balls all winter and for me across my entire bag the Duo is longer than any other ball I've tried. The ball speeds are slower for sure but the distance is there. Spin is down across the bag as well but for a guy like me that comes up short a lot I'll take the distance gain and roll out. When Barbajo wrote the article about the new Duo+ balls he mentioned his best score ever was with the Duo. Well, up until a year ago so was mine. I am going to start the season with the Duo.
  15. Might have shown total spin. Like side spin and back spin together which I’ve seen on other monitors. For reference on my SkyTrak the highest spin I’ve been able to achieve was 11,800 using a 56 degree wedge and ProV1x. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
