  1. just a quick update for those who may be considering this watch. I am having the same issues with charging that others have had, the watch is very picky about how the charging adapter and all the cables are seated. it takes some fiddling with everything to get it charging. however that shouldn't matter much longer as I just noticed the watch appears to be literally breaking in half. there are two cracks forming between the buttons on the left side of the watch. I'm certainly thankful for the chance to test this and it really has shown me that I personally prefer a gps watch over a laser rangefinder (something I thought I would never say). If I had purchased this watch and only a year later was experiencing the charging and cracking issues then I would be pretty bummed, but I didn't, so I am only mildly bummed. My skygolf subscription was about to expire anyway but it still stinks this likely wont last much longer for the basic gps features. I did enjoy the watch and it had its pro and cons that I hopefully gave a fair review over the last year. again I do appreciate MGS and SkyCaddie for letting me do this.

  3. FWIW most of what I have purchased from CPO (probably 20 clubs over 3-4 years) has been in better than described condition. globalgolf.com average rating is what you want to stay away from, lol
  4. I don't think we have an official end of season as far as handicap goes but my "its too cold to play golf" final handicap is at an even 7.0
  5. Very few golf reps at DSG know what they are doing. Around here anyway. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  7. I had a set GW with a recoil shaft but ended up selling and buying an RTX 3 with steel shaft. it wasn't due to the shaft, I just didn't like the set GW as much as the RTX 3. All 3 of my RTX 3's have KBS wedge shafts in them. Its probably just in my head but the heavier steel shaft (in my case) feels better on partial wedge shots, chips and pitches. I might take 3 full swing wedge shots a round so the lack of the graphite shaft isn't an issue for me.

  9. just used caddiesync express to add my round from yesterday. I used "blackbox" mode and I actually quit tagging shots pretty early in the round. I dont want to use the app during my round and I though I would rely on the autoshot feature as I just wanted distances and I wanted to just play golf. Website shows a score for 3 holes and shows no recorded shots. I have come to terms with the fact that the shot tracking stuff just simply doesn't work unless you use the app while you are playing. seeing my shots post round and seeing my average distances for clubs was pretty neat int he beginning but the extra work and frustration required to get all that info correct far outweighs my desire to see that info. As I have said before, I absolutely love this as a gps and I will continue to use it each time I play. However, I believe it is time to remove the tags from my clubs and quit fooling around with the tagging, syncing, correcting, etc. etc. I am very grateful to MGS and SkyCaddie for letting me test this, it is going to be a huge on course help for as long as it keeps ticking...
  10. I did it last year (35 years old) and haven't looked back buddy. Went from Tour V 120 to Recoil 110. Flight and dispersion is better and my lower back doesn't feel as beat up at the end of a round. I talked Bobby into doing it this summer too, he got some Apex CF16's with the PX 5.5 graphite shafts in them too.
  11. Played in a couple scrambles this week and used the watch for distances and a few times to measure drives. It got some compliments from some playing partners. Both times we had guys with lasers with us and I had my distance before they did most of the time and my planned distance was mostly spot on. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  13. last week the watch split my round into a 14 hole round and a 4 hole round. this week, it only synced the back nine. I have emailed Nathan and he is going to look into it but I'm not having much luck with the sync here lately. I can kind of understand the splitting of the round because the course i play is 36 holes and the course wind within each other, but then again I always make sure the watch is on the correct hole before I tag my shot. I have been playing in black box mode where I do not use the iphone app while playing. I already have another app i use for handicap and dont want to enter my score on two apps while on the course. Hopefully they get this fixed. On a side note I love this thing for a gps device. I sold my laser rangefinder and use this exclusively for distances.
  14. I got a $25 coupon for teeoff.com for playing in a tourney. I won't use it. Here it is for whomever will: Voucher Code: HIO8C32ECC Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I have synced with caddie sync express twice and synced via Bluetooth with the mobile app twice and no scores or shots are showing online. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. played today in dark mode and just tagged my shots. finished the round, saved the round on the watch and then did bluetooth sync on my way home. now it shows I played today and the correct course but there is no score or shot information online. I used the usb to sync and still nothing. I can go on my watch and it wants me to resume my round. so I did that but of course I'm too far away now. I tried saving a few more times but there is nothing. looked for saved rounds on the watch and it says no rounds saved. Its like the watch hasnt recognized my round is over and wants me to keep playing (which I would love to do) I have no idea how to get my round data from today, which just so happened to be one of the best rounds I have ever played, lol.
  17. Haven't played in a couple weeks but have a tee time in the morning and will be using this in dark mode. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. Different question...would the battery get you thru a full round? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
