  1. The Stack System. Chances of getting it are slim to none though since I already have Super Speed and Super Speed C. Every year I can’t tell if the wife misses or forgets my texts with “Christmas gift?” and the relevant hyperlink, or if she gets it and decides I’ve already spent too much on golf. Very likely the latter.
  2. Like @HeathS16 also alluded to, for me to pick up a launch monitor it had better track clubhead speed and support speed training without a ball. Based on the continuing rapid developments in this space it seems to me we aren’t far off from some of great capabilities and price points in the handheld market, for those of us who would have a hard s time fitting a GC3 into the budget.
  3. Are you wanting to run that much for overall health or are you looking for it to translate to your golf game? Overall I know you’re very intentional and methodical about your training, but (my two cents) I’m a little concerned you’re not programming enough rest. Do you really feel you can go all out and push yourself in your weight training if you’re continuously running that much every week?
  4. Interested in your feedback on that club. I had a U510 for a while and it performed well enough but I couldn’t get past the feel…god awful if you didn’t center it, even if the shot itself wasn’t penalized all that much for the mishit.
  5. Yeah, I don't necessarily disagree. Like I said, they're very hit or miss.
  6. For what it's worth, not sure of your GolfTec access in your area, but if you can give a name as a reference you can usually get a 60-minute swing eval/lesson for free, and the guy/gal you name drop gets a free lesson. That's been my experience anyway...they don't advertise that deal but if you call and ask they'll do it (or at least in Omaha). Not pushing GolfTEC by any means; they are very hit or miss...if you do go that route I'd recommend checking the location's website and looking over the staff resumes. However, it would at least give you the ability to check out an instructor without really committing anything financially.
  7. I find I can minimize it by focusing on my head position and emphasizing staying behind the ball. Still, would like that to be an automatic ingrained feel rather than a conscious thought to focus on…
  8. I slide too much instead of posting up and turning in the downswing; instructor confirmed as much this morning. Hoping this helps ingrain the right feels a bit…
  9. Hmmm, I feel like this kind of thread has been done before. And are you saying regular workout-log-like posts aren't riveting content? How dare you sir! Looking forward to following this one too. I'll be updating my own thread with some workout plans, but similar approach...heavy compound movements, lots of explosion and power training. Remember, "Everybody want to be a bodybuilder, but don't nobody want to lift no heavy-ass weight." - Ronnie Coleman (You'll have to imagine the juice-induced high-pitched voice...)
  10. Manufacturing tolerances contributes to performance being consistent from one ball to the next. It does not serve as the root cause for why the product itself performs better. That said, those manufacturing tolerances are another reason a "captive fitting" is appropriate, in my opinion. If you can't be reasonably confident that you'll see consistent performance or flight from one ball to the next, how can you be certain it's a good fit? Using an OEM where that isn't an issue, is (again) to me a logical extension of the data supplied from the last ball test. I understand and don't dispute your point that some bias is inherent, just not sure that the ball fitting is a demonstration of it.
  11. I'm not sure I agree that's an example of bias. The data supports Titleist as the premier ball company, to me featuring Titleist for the ball fitting was simply a logical extension of that. In other words, why would you feature a ball fitting from Vice, Snell, or others if their product and subsequently their overall expertise has been shown to be lesser than another?
  12. And if you really want proof, spend some time and comb through the Most Wanted test results. You'll find different OEMs "winning" different categories, and the determinations are based on an actual data rather than subjective anecdotes. Absolutely unbiased.
  13. I would bet Scott Fawcett would look to upgrade and improve the DECADE app more than partner with another entity. If you're a DECADEr, you know he recently pushed a major upgrade to the app called "Driving Targets" where it basically draws the tee shot for you as an overlay on a GPS shot of the hole, so he's already tinkering with moving from teaching you how to pick correct targets to actually doing it for you...
  14. Callaway and Taylormade join forces to create an AI-engineered Flash Twist Face with Jailbreak Velocity Blades! I wouldn't mind SuperSpeed Golf bringing on Mike Carroll (Fit for Golf) to play a role in their speed training protocol development. Word is this might actually be happening...
  15. It’s C Club, so not something to get TOO excited about, but making gains and nice to see a new PR. First time in the 140s…
  16. Really appreciate all the congratulatory messages fellas. Love this group…makes me really hope an MGS forum invitational comes to fruition someday…
  17. Thank you. Outside of a few years as a student or on staff, I’ve been in the Contracting career field my entire career.
  18. I just got the word...I've been selected for promotion to Colonel! This was a career goal when I started out in the Air Force 20+ years ago; pretty emotional moment for me. That said, not sure what it says about me that my almost immediate reaction was "I wonder what golf-related thing I should I get as a promotion gift to self..." Thoughts drift to Stack System...
  19. Thank you for taking the time to participate in AMA on MGS! I’m curious: some competitors to SuperSpeed have emerged in the overspeed training space lately, most notably the Stack System and Rypstick among others. How will SuperSpeed refine and/or improve their product to maintain their “industry-leading” status?
  20. Sorry, should have clarified…the hybrid. Very small profile and is another anti-left hybrid…
  21. It's been a while since I've posted here, but rest assured I'm slogging away and hatching some off-season plans that I'll detail here soon. Regarding that slogging away, here's my progress through SuperSpeed Level 2 so far. Again, pretty slow, but as Bill Miller often says, I'm basically one of those athletes that is very good at moving heavy things, but not good at moving light things fast. The Level 2 work happens every Monday and Friday, minus the occasional out-of-town missed session. Level 2 C Club work happens every Wednesday: Again, almost embarrassingly slow, but as a guy who hasn't trained for explosion and power (but instead hypertrophy) for about 20 years now, I'm cutting myself some slack. I feel like the sprints, jumps and med ball work are starting to pay off, and as long as I see these trendlines continue to creep up I'm happy. Not satisfied by any means, but happy. More about my off-season training plans soon...
  22. You know I share your affection for the DHY, but have you tried an Apex Pro?
  23. Might sound sacrilegious to some, but while Hogan’s book certainly has its place on any golfers book shelf, that book might as well be called “how to not go left”. Point being, really not the best prescription for most. Sounds like Toski’s was a good one…
  24. Eh, sounds like you're reaching...still a Titleist stamp on those Vokey's...
