  1. Using the set PW... It's quite bladed already, it's 47°, but still as it goes 135 to 140 yards and I'm not "finessing" from that distance I don't need a specialised grind or CG. Around the green I also tend to be very contrasted, either rolling putts, bump and running a 9 or 7i or playing the 58° (which can go high or low) and sometimes, less often, the 52°. To be honest, even my 52° (an sm7) has a straight grind (F) and about 50% of the time I could replace it with a set matching iron (if it existed) but then again the remaining 50% of thw shots I use it for require a "proper specialis
  2. On looks I'd go Mizuno for the general shape although I'm not fully sold on the back design, for the rest, the CB has "normal" lofts so I wouldn't have to rethink the rest of my bag, which might well be the deciding factor. Sent from my ONEPLUS 6 using Tapatalk
  3. I'm playing the Inesis tour 900 balls since I'm running out (actually ran out two days ago) of the yellow Nike RZN black. Not sure if they can be found easily in the US (I guess at least in some places since the MGS ball study had them among the best in value category) but they're great albeit a bit soft-ish and really not expensive.

  4. Yeah, funny you bring these up. I've lost my last RZN black two days ago... They were fantastic, great spin on irons and wedges, beautiful flight with the driver... Only down was that they're a bit click with the putter. Sent from my ONEPLUS 6 using Tapatalk
  5. Ben Hogan.... But he's no longer on tourn or even on the planet, so Rors. Or Adam Scott.. Sent from my ONEPLUS 6 using Tapatalk
  6. I started playing about 20 years ago but didn't take the game seriously until 3-4 years ago. I don't maintain an official handicap but shoot in the mid-low eighties most of the time The quiet meditation, the camaraderie, the challenge and the occasional "perfect shot". These are some of my favourite things... about golf. Can't really say what brings me here. Been looking at the most wanted stuff and some other MGS articles for a while, though. I'm from France, playing around Grenoble, in the Alps? Best thing about golf around here is that we have some very very "hilly courses" (being in
  7. First name : François Home State/Province/Country : Isère/France ​Do you use performance tracking? Yep, (MyRoundPro) Do you use a GPS watch? Nope Which ones?
  8. I've played matte orange balls, matte yellow balls, pink and yellow balls... And normal white balls. If I could get a "tour level" in matte orange or yellow or... I'd be all over it. The bright colours in matte are super easy to spot and to follow in the air and they sort of help focusing the eyes and mind when puttung, at least for me.
  9. I always walk... before this year, I walked and carried... Now I almost feel like a cheat as I have purchased a push cart having some scoliosis problems. But riding? That'd really feel like golf is no longer a sport.
  10. Hitting my drives on the fairway at a decent distance (I manage well enough playing only with my 16° hybrid, but still the yards I miss would come in handy). Or not to pull and miss judge the distances on my 50 to 20 yards approaches... Sent from my A0001 using Tapatalk
  11. The problem is the ego of most of us. We want to be hitting a 6 into that hole where all our mates are using the 5 iron... At least at some level. However, once you have consistent gaping of 10 m / 12 yards at least for distances above 100 yards and decent stopping power until at least 140 yards, you can score well with anything. The real deciding factors are going to be the clubs that you're feeling the best with... Obviously a lot of people will feel more confident over a large, strongly offset, thick top lined SGI. But other will look at them and fear ballooning hooks. These guys will b
  12. Right.And I just realized something... Most Crossfield devout followers are TM haters in the first place, so it wouldn't make any sense "talking" to these guys via Mark therefore why waste money sending clubs to MC... That would be a bad business decision, or require a massive investment to change their minds. Sent from my A0001 using Tapatalk
  13. I agree with your general point that all clubs are generally comparable and that they only differ in having a slightly different mix of the same ingredients... But then, why complain about not being able to test a certain club? Why make it "about giving info to my viewers" when we (Mark Crossfield included) know full well in advance what the "results" will be? Except for the subjective elements, feel, sound, looks, which he always judges as "as good as anything"... Sent from my A0001 using Tapatalk
  14. The whole debate strikes me as very childish. TM might have a strict policy of "no free test if you're under contract with another club manufacturer", that would make sense but they could send and ask for a return of the clubs after 5 days or something (but maybe they did, we only know what Crossfield is saying... ). On the other hand he can pretend to be unbiased, even to himself, but is that really the case? Only time will tell. Plus if you get money from a certain company can you really complain not to get freebies from their competitors? And complain just on the day, in a tedious rant las
