  1. Welcome to America, I'll stick with my SM7s. The bounce is too low for me on all those KSigs Sent from my moto g(6) using Tapatalk
  2. I hear you can pay for the purchase of both sets by selling one of them Sent from my moto g(6) using Tapatalk

  7. I agree with the others that you should get fit. However, there are some brands that produce really good gapping, like Ping. And it's trending for companies to also provide a retro loft which might suit your needs. Sent from my moto g(6) using Tapatalk
  8. The CB will make the head feel lighter even if the weight is identical statically. You can add tape to the head but the overall weight will go up and it's a bit trial and error. From what I can remember, flex can be made stiffer by cutting the shaft down, and vice versa. Your shaft weight can help you get to a certain swing weight. But how a shaft is designed on an EI profile determines how it reacts. How you transition and how you load the shaft matters too. Getting fit is the sure way to match you to a shaft because there are so many options and considerations. Sent from my moto g(6) using
  9. Thanks for the tip! It seems like the OEMs are comfortable not risking the value of their offerings by facilitating a pre-owned program - except for Callaway.. I did see that Ping provides authentication for online retailers. Does that protect against buying counterfeit clubs 100% of the time??? Sent from my moto g(6) using Tapatalk
  10. Just finished listening to the latest podcast on whether you should purchase used golf equipment. There were a lot of analogies to purchasing a car used. I wonder if the oems consider or do they already use a pre-owned sales model? I golfer would have the ability to trade in a previous generation model driver, in this instance, in exchange for a discount on the latest model or for the ability to purchase some next new product at an earlier release date. The manufacturer would then be able to verify if the club is authentic prior to bestowing any compensation to the seller and then be able
  11. I think golf could use a product that makes the practice more interactive and fun. I mean who wouldn't want to see a tracer of their range shots? But there is an opportunity for adding a training piece (maybe YouTube videos) that explains how decent angle helps you hold more greens or how an optimal peak height on a drive can lead to more distance (or how low to keep a tee shot in the wind).

  12. Can you imagine your average golfer using a personal launch monitor to fit themselves into the right ball using a net? They could then use that ball to get their numbers right from the comfort of their own home. Sent from my moto g(6) using Tapatalk
  13. I'd love to find a bunch of friends willing to split the price of a GC Quad (fantasy). It's hard to justify if you're not going to make money from it. I love knowing all the numbers. But the podcast discussed that the launch monitor guys are at the mercy of the Doppler people who might not have too much incentive to make the tech smaller. The price for renting a bay with a Trackman here in Raleigh is $44/hr. Not bad for seeing your yardage gaps if you're efficient cycling through your bag. A fitting would require more time and knowledge of available equipment, so I might shell out the $100
  14. Yes, pulling out a Trackman would slow things down. But assuming a smaller, compact launch monitor (Mevo size) that you can set up at the tee box and relays each person's tee shot regarding how far off line and how long it went down the fairway prior to curving away would make it easier to find the ball.

  15. During my last round the clubs I used least were a 7 iron and 4wood. However, when I did they were a par 3 with the 7 iron and a tee shot to stay short of a bunker with the 4wood. I would agree and say take out clubs you won't hit - I don't carry a 3 iron, but overall if there is a yardage gap you can reach easier with a easy 5 iron instead of a step on the gas 6 iron, you probably should carry a 5 iron in that example. Taking advantage of a gapping session with a fitter may shed more light. Nice thought exercise OP Sent from my moto g(6) using Tapatalk
  16. 14 is the limit and there is no minimum. You could play the course with a 3 iron if you wanted. I prefer having a club for every gap and wedge versatility in grinds/loft. The only concern is are you not going to have the option to play a certain shot if you don't have the club you need. If you're shooting 59s with your current set up, then it doesn't matter how many clubs are in your bag. [emoji106] Sent from my moto g(6) using Tapatalk
  17. It goes back to how much you would pay for something that's just close in accuracy. It's like having yard sticks of different lengths that still claim they're a yard - you'd want the most accurate for measuring if you want the actual numbers of the club head and ball. I think, referring to the OP, giving a read out of what the ball did (yardage, yardage offline, peak height) would be non-threatening enough for a Trackman or Foresight to want to develop since they are arguably the leaders. The information would also have usefulness on the range and course so as not to be a novelty. Sent from m
  18. By the time they advance to there being multiple ultra portable launch monitors, the big OEMs will develop some advantage in the presentation (augmented reality or live virtual fitting) or even better accuracy. Drawing comparisons back to the podcast and the computer analogy. It's not like all the big companies folded as new competitors came into the market, they either flourished more (Apple), just became more specialized (HP - 3D printing?) or occupy a space that fits their model (Microsoft). These guys are still trying to get better and they have the advantage of already having brought a p
  19. Mark me down for GC Quad but I'd actually pay for an affordable launch monitor that provides accurate ball flight info over a watered down GC Quad or Trackman-like product Sent from my moto g(6) using Tapatalk
  20. If they can get the right balance of portable size and price point, it would be good for gapping your clubs, dialing your distances on the range, or seeing if those swing changes are making a difference. On the course, it would be helpful in knowing where your wayward tee shot ended up. Basically, it's a suggestion to what they proposed on the podcast for a cheaper stepped down version of a launch monitor that could be developed by a Trackman or a Foresight to market to the average golfer. But I agree that the average golfer would not be interested in a GC Quad (present company excluded) ;)
  21. Hey Spies, Just finished the No Putts Given episode on personal launch monitors and I think that the Trackmans and the Flightscope companies should make a personal launch monitor that gives data similar to Shot Tracer. Akin to catering to the people who don't care how the sausage is made, this monitor won't spit out Ball speed, Spin Rates, AoA, etc. but maybe focus on the information about the ball flight: Yardage Yards Offline Left or Right from the "Target Line" (in relation to the position of the monitor which is assumed to be some 10 feet behind the ball) Peak Heig
  22. Looks really clean. Hard to believe it's a G. - Randy - North Carolina, USA - Ping I e1, AWT 2.0, Regular - 150 yards
  23. I went to a top 100 fitter and he put me in the ie1s (i200s weren't released yet). The face surely doesn't feel as hot as, let's say... the jpx 900 hot metals, but my gapping has been on point. The previous Gs were certainly easier to hit (straight and high) but I chose the more appealing ball flight and sense of control for me. Hope the G400s work out for you!
