  1. This is a good way to look at it. Now that I think about it, my main concern came when my 52 was carrying close to a standard PW for me, almost. I thought my short irons were losing spin and encroaching/shortening my gaps into the longer irons. Looking through ARCCOS and other info, I think you may be right. My gaps are more consistent and each iron has gotten a tad longer. It could be that before the BX My shorter irons were spinning or ballooning slightly, and now I’m carrying properly. I really want to get on a Trackman just for gapping when COVID has subsided. Cheers! Be well. Sent f
  2. A friend and I split two dozen Bridgestones: one dozen tour bx and one dozen tourbxs, then we split them with each other. Made our own “demo dozen”. I’m excited to see how these balls have changed from 2018 to 2020. What I’m looking for, if anyone has recommendations: the tour bx 2018 is perfect for me off the tee and down to about 6 iron, from 7 down though it seems like there may be a lack of spin? The symptom I’m experiencing could best be described as the ball “sailing” and I hit my shorter irons and wedges too long surprising me. Any thoughts? I am also trying the ProV1X left dash whi
  3. John/NY Tensei Pro Orange 7tx 114 mph What if anything? I am satisfied with distance, however I would not turn down more! My main desire is continuous improvement on dispersion. I have full access to a large hitting bay with Trackman. Would love to do a write-up! Thanks for all you do. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  9. This is all really great info! I really appreciate it folks. I may be able to put together two days for golf, but it’s not the sole purpose. Good excuse to go back! As of right now, I’m thinking Troon North-Pinnacle, and heading out for dinner together. I may try and do 36 on that day though, so maybe traveling to another course. I’ve never really travelled out of the Northeast for golf besides one trip to North Carolina. This has ignited a fire to do so, as well as really good conversations with my wife to travel more and include golf in the itinerary. Will have to come after the new
  10. Thanks gaussman1! Yeah, we’re there for six days, and most of it is filled already with non-golf activities (unfortunately). I’ll check out Grayhawk and the others. I did try to find out info on Ping and fittings, tours, etc. I read they have moved fittings offsite to their certified fitter locally. I’m going to take a swing though and email them to see what can be done. Even if it’s just a tour. I did a fitting at Titleist on Manchester Lane, and the tour of their ball research area was great. I like the idea of golf and then my wife can meet me for a nice dinner and sunset. Sent fr
  11. My wife and I are expecting our second child in July, so we are taking one last big trip for awhile. We decided on Arizona (flying from NY). Opening up discussion here to my trusted advisors: I have one full day to myself (she’ll be at a spa) to golf and go to golf related places. What course should I play? Places to go? PXG? Troon North? TPC? I’ll be alone for the whole day, which I don’t mind. We’ll be splitting time in Sedona and Scottsdale. Thank you in advance! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  12. I am currently gaming the TEE CBX fairway and really like it. Let’s us know how it works for you. It will work more like a “sub zero” lower spin wood though, from what I’ve experienced. Before the CBX, I used a cobra fairway and it launched plenty high/tons of forgiveness. Cobra has been named numerous times here, so just wanted to add to that list! If you like the Adams hybrid, have you looked at their fairway woods? My favorite 5 wood of all time was a Tight Lies. Total mindless wonder. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  13. The company I used to work for had a factory in Lexington, KY that I took customers to every year. After the factory tour we always made our way to the Buffalo Trace Distillery where they make some of the best bourbon known to man. I was able to secure a bottle of Pappy Van Winkle 18 yr, which was enjoyed over Thanksgiving with my two brothers. They are my closest and best friends, and it was truly a special experience with a special bourbon. I mixed the Pappy name with my last name: Roylance. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  14. MCaseyM, I really enjoyed the detailed, and long term, review. Thank you for sticking with things and keeping us updated. I would like to enter the hybrid giveaway! I am located in Albany, NY. I’ll send you confirmation of donation directly. Thanks again!! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  15. Went to a Titleist fitting in September and tried the TS2 and TS3. Rapidly disqualified the TS2 as it had too much spin for my swing. Went into TS3, the closed the face using the surefit hosel, changed the weight to draw, and I was hitting beautiful baby draws for the first time in my life! I was actually about to tear up right there on the range. I’m in a Nike VR Pro driver with Nunchuck shaft right now with 108 swing speed. After the Titleist rep laughed at my driver and shaft, they put me in an evenflow white x-stiff (6.5) because of my quick tempo. I was able to slow down to almost 1
  16. Just bought a used CBX and gained 11 yards on my Cobra Fly-Z 3W. It's legit. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  18. Ordered the the Snell MTB Black and Red Test Pack, with 6 balls each. Very excited, as this is my first time using Snell balls. Thank you MGS members for all the reviews that turned me on to Dean and what he produces! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  19. Northway 8 Golf Center. Off exit 8 on i87. Call before as they may not have the range open with too much snow on the ground. Called today actually, and they're going to try and open back up tomorrow. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  20. I'll be sure to provide updates as well, thanks Wedgie! Thinking I'll be pulling the trigger on a single length hybrid based on reviews and your feedback once I get a better idea on gapping. Very excited to put this all in play. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  21. Thanks Wedgie, enjoyed the initial thoughts. I just received a set of f8 single length 5-GW, coming from JPX900 forged as well!! I think based on this and other reviews, I'll be ordering the 4H. Had one session at the range to test yardages, and I really enjoyed the whole set except the 5 iron, for some reason I was hitting a big weak fade/slice. Thinking maybe I tried to compensate for the “shorter” length, knowing it was a 5 iron, I was moving only this club way up in my stance and swinging harder. I think if I trust the single length and am consistent in setup, then issues will sta
  22. Cobra F8 One Length Irons 5-GW. So far so good with one length at the (heated) range. Evnroll ER7 (based on MGS reviews of course). Want to compare this mallet to my Sentio blade. Found a deal on a Nike VR Pro Driver with Nunchuck shaft for $60! I don't care about the driver, just really wanted to try the shaft. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
