  1. @yungkory 2 months later, how is this feeling for you? I'm seeing the Mizuno STz comes with this as a shaft option, so I am intrigued.
  2. unrelated to these irons, but just me in general. I don't use a tee on Par 3's. Or ever if hitting an iron off the tee. I find that I tend to really pull it left when I tee it up. So for that reason I just hit every iron off the deck.
  3. I'm thinking that by the time you decide on which club you want to pull the trigger on, you are going to realize that the next cycle release is only 3 weeks away and might want to test all the next cycles clubs too. Given how long those ping eye 2's stayed in the bag, I think you have about 7 more years and 16 more fittings before you get a new set
  4. Still cheaper than a round at Pebble Beach. Seems like a good deal. But I'd let you ride mine at our next meet up for free. I might even throw in a beer, also known as balance juice.
  5. It takes a little effort to learn, but it is worth it.
  6. Mine are happily still in my bag. I really don't have a complaint with them. The finish has held up great, I like the look and feel. And the performance is great. Normally every spring I go test all the latest and greatest irons to see if I want to make a change. I'm not going to bother this year, I'm fully of the belief that nothing could be enough better than these to warrant a change. Guessing these will stay in my bag for a full 5 year cycle.
  7. I just pretend I'm riding a bike and use applicable paths and rules. I do wear a helmet anytime in not on the course.
  8. On a overall practical aspect. My wife and I have just gone to 1 car( @fixyurdivot @Kenny B the stinger is gone ). With Covid we just weren't driving that much and having 2 car payments didn't make much sense. So we now just have 1 SUV. That said, I wanted to go golfing last week on a sunny afternoon, but the wife needed the car. So I grabbed my golf clubs, hopped on the OneWheel and rode the 6.2 miles from my house to the course. I averaged 18 MPH getting there and it took about 25 minutes. The course was very wet, so I hadn't planned on riding on the course. It was a walking only day.
  9. It happens more often then I would think, but my club tends to heavily favor the 8am-12pm tee times. I tend to get out around 3 or 4. At that time, I often am about the only person on the course. And now that the club members have seen me around for a year, if I'm playing solo they are pretty fast to wave me through. If I'm playing with my weekly group or with the wife and kid, it definitely doesn't speed up the round. Not much to be done about that. But on a day that you get the course to yourself for whatever reason the round is over before you know it.
  10. I've done some pretty hilly terrain with it, but it does have limits. Some courses would be too steep to make it enjoyable or doable. The motor does regen braking when going downhill, so you don't speed up. You just keep going as you were. The real limit to hills is the angle from the bottom of the wheel to the edge of the board, 15 degrees. I thought I would run into lots of hills steeper than 15 degrees... But after a year of riding on golf courses (13 different ones) I've only found 1 hill that was just too much. Fortunately, the wheel only weights 30 lbs and it's easy enough to carry
  11. I rocked the Cleveland Monster HiBore XLS for 2 seasons. Literally sounds like a shotgun. The first time I hit it in an enclosed hitting bay I thought it had broken from the sound it made. But man does it hit it straight.
  12. First performance update. It goes fast.
  13. I haven't had it yet, but if /when it happens I will let you all know
  14. I'm glad to help, we all do what we can around here. It's a team effort.
  15. You poor neglected soul. If I woke up left handed tomorrow I could likely learn to golf standing over there, but I'd forever be defeated by clothing zippers. I don't know how you all do it. But luckily for you, my wife is left handed so I asked her to see if these tees would work for her. For some reason she thought this was about the dumbest request I've ever made. But for science she attempted it. Shockingly enough, they work just fine. I was surprised for one. But it seems you are in luck. First a left dash ball from Titleist, now a tee that works for lefties. Next thing you kno
  16. .... I just don't know... I will try to be more thorough in future reviews. I apologize for neglecting to provide this detail. My new SpiderX shipped from China.
  17. Matt and Ian, its almost like they know what they are talking about.
  18. Yes, yes I am. It continues to do everything I need it to do. We have been having incredibly high winds for the last month, the only couple times I have gotten out to play there has been sustained 30+ mph winds. Being able to keep this low has been huge and great at keeping the ball in play. My last round I was looking at a long 2nd shot on a par 5, ~230y. With that wind slightly into me and mostly going R->L I decided to hit two shots, one with this and one with my 5w. I knew getting the green wasn't an option with the wind. I hit the 5w first, probably the most pure shot I have hit
  19. For me, it sits flat and square. My take away with it comes right into the slot I want it to. Which has been the biggest knock I've had on the evnroll, it aways wants to drift outside on my takeaway.
  20. The weather here has been just beautiful. 45 degrees, Gale force winds and and inch of so of rain every day. It has made getting out to the course for testing a challenge. But the skies cleared for enough time for me to run out and get 9 holes in. My first reaction is to be very impressed, I guess I can see why it seems like half the tour uses one of these. Distance seems to be basically the same as my ER2. But it does sound much more muted at impact. The thing I liked the most about it, is that it is so easy to start the ball online. Really really easy. My biggest comp
  21. Between constant Gale warnings and rain I can't say I have played much in the last few weeks.
  22. I might be, in theory my wife and I have tickets to the women's am, but not sure if that is going to happen.
  23. I'm sure we all thought about it, but decided to wish you well instead. Seriously glad you are feeling better. Get home soon.
