  1. I have never had a BOA shoe before, so honestly i can't compare for you.. but I don't think it makes them to stiff (now all I am going to think about is whether my shoes are too stiff there, great, maybe it will keep my mind off my awful swing) These are definitely wider than the others I have, or at least feel. its a little longer as well... Last years lace 10 fit me as well as any shoe ever has, but this shoe is a litter roomier. not enough that I should be in a 9.5, but definitely not the perfect fit of the others
  2. I bought a pair sight unseen, missed this thread... They are extremely comfortable, but they are not the same as the 4 other pairs of Titantour Ignites i have (all last years model) They are a bit wider (a definite plus) but I can't get the BOA quite tight enough... there is just too much slack in the wires.... The other thing is, these shoes SQUEAK.... and I mean like i need WD40 on my feet... its ridiculous... and its LOUD. i am hoping this dissipates as they break in, but HOLY HELL its awful.... almost enough to send them back or toss them if I can't send them back.... ALMOST, they are too damn comfortable
  3. +1 on pure. I even now order my irons from ping with no grips. And have a stockpile ready at all times. The tool makes it a snap Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  4. I think it will be great if he wins with it. They are supposed to be making him a green ball to play in the masters. Bubba stated that he and ted were sitting around and decided they wanted to do something different. So they started looking into golf ball companies that made colored high end balls. Thats pretty much Volvik's calling card. Srixon makes tour yellow, and for the japanese market they make an Orange Zstar... but my guess is Bubba wanted A) something different than plain old yellow and Srixon already has a bunch of tour guys that play the ball AND thier clubs. Bubba isn't leaving Ping anytime soon is my guess as thats all he pretty much has ever played since he was a little kid I think its awesome
  5. Ok. How did you do that. That looks awesome. I would love to get my new tyne with a custom finish. But being they are painted I don't think they are going to offer it. I probably am going to get at least a custom paint fill if they will let me. But a star shot or powder coat black with silver front (ala Vera's line) would be killer.

  6. I get your point, and its completely valid. Bettinardi i guess is too big to be considered boutique anymore, but I have several friends who have his putters. Only 1 of them still plays it. and he took it out of the bag for a while (but thats not really a good comparison as he has 35 putters at the house) The Ping IsoForce was a great design. Patent must have ran out, as Edel (i think) is making one that is almost identical. I had a Darby from the original WRX line and then a couple of the production line models To me, Ping is still more boutique compared to the big guys. But they don't do all the options. I come from the music industry, and there were boutique guitar builders that could do some amazing things with pieces of wood and a set of Seymour Duncan Pickups... But most of them that I knew are gone less than 10 years later. But the Jackson Charvel Custom shop (now owned by Fender) is still doing them. They don't have an unlimited options, but they can and still build pretty much anything you want. But it will cost you probably double what it will at a small builder. but a lifetime warranty for the original owner that will more than likely outlast the original owner is pretty bitchin'
  7. See thats my thing too. I am sure that there are several really great guys that have small boutique shops that probably build a great putter. But I personally would rather have one that says Ping on it for several reasons, and only one is because of my OCD. I have purchased several items off eBay that Ping has done repairs on. Technically they don't have to do anything with a second hand item. Its one of those things that they are a company that stands behind their products, and isn't going anywhere anytime soon. The boutique guy, could get a job offer in a machine shop that he can't refuse and then suddenly he no longer has enough time to work on, build or repair his putters. Or he could just not be making enough money to keep doing it and has to go find a real job. (this is the most likely scenario) Im not in anyway saying that they are not the way to go, just not the way I would personally go. Like I said in an earlier post, if this was the right putter head, or a customizable putter head, I would have already told them to shut up and take my money.
  8. That looks like a killer track... great package too...yeah yeah, i know i am always late to the party
  9. ok. Will do this now, if I can find it...
  10. I am a Ping Fanboi, but I don't think they will sell a ton of them. I also, being familiar with Ping, don't really think the aim is to take over the putter world with this. They are just probably branching out. This isn't an anser putter, its a new one. The other thing, is like the Vault series, this is a USA made all milled putter. They sold the Anniversary ansers (i would have bought one if I could have and they were what, 900) so this will be for "that guy" I would get one if it was a selectable head shape. I wouldn't be able to click the mouse fast enough if they had the head shape I want. just my $.02 that is worth $.00
  11. She uses her body, and yes its way above average, to get a leg up on her competition as far as sponsors. Thats the world we still live in. She takes LOTS of selfies in clothes that barely cover her curves. People are always going to be trolls. They are friggin everywhere. My first wife died when my son was 11 months old. Somebody in an online game he was playing asked if that was his mom that said something (someones mic picked up a woman talking about getting off the game) He said, no and they aregued with him. when he finally said, dude, my mom died when i was a baby, another person immediately said "she probably killed herself because how bad you suck" i mean it was IMMEDIATE.. people just suck in general. If you look at all the people that follow her... no i am not one.. but I have looked at her photos, there are a ton of posts about all the things they want to do to her, and more about how she sucks. People really are awful, especially when there are no consequences, and if they can make themselves feel better and stay behind the shield of anonymity, then they will generally say things that they would be terrified to say to someones face...
  12. Yeah the guy that did that cover has a bunch of great songs that arent metal, done that way. He owns a studio in Norway. Incredibly talented. Gave me permission to use his music for any videos I did... I have a flyover from 15-30 feet as well, but it has a Joe Satriani Song in it... Don't have permission for it... but its just damn cool
