  1. I nearly broke into tears Monday when after three swings on the driving range (the last sounding a little funny) and on the third hole I pulled the headcover off my G400 LST to see this on the top of the crown. Good news: PING already has me a replacement on the way but they are OUT of G400 LST so they are sending me a G410 LST. Which is pretty awesome but I'm curious if anyone who played the 400 and switched to the 410 what changes they might have seen or felt. Just curious what some of you spies might have noticed between the two models. Also, you might be able to see from the picture but that top crown is insanely thin. They say it's the width of two pieces of paper. Pretty impressive engineering to move the weight around like that in the head.
  2. @ballplayer002003 I just bought the same putter on eBay. Do you still love it after 6 months? I used to game a Mizuno Bettinardi BC5 and loved the feel at impact.
  3. Congrats to @blackngold_blood and a huge thank you to the Commissioners @Berg Ryman @GolfSpy STUDque It was an awesome and fun season! Thank y'all for the hard work!
  4. Lets see... New bag -1 New putter -1 New ball -1 Total 17...
  5. I read he was sick and withdrew on Sunday. Awful way to end, cause I think even if you take his points up to Sunday, you'd advanced. I think the zero points with a WD is dumb to be honest but pretty sure this thread had discussed that topic at length already.

  9. I had the same exact thought. The e12 speed wasn't offered in any color except white and all of us I think noticed durability issues. Of course the e12 speed was designed for faster swing speeds perhaps the harder impact with each clubhead and sometimes increased probability balls will be hit into trouble (trees/cart path) that sometimes accompanies faster swing speeds could contribute to the cause.
  10. My Stage 2 is already up but I did have the opportunity to test the e12 in the local AboutGolf PGA simulator yesterday. First, a couple disclaimers I've used both this simulator and a TrackMan. I believe the TrackMan to be at least 5% more accurate with club speed/ball speed/spin. I was also told by the simulator owner that the balls wouldn't give that accurate spin rates because I wasn't using his balls. However, I did mark the balls in a way they should track the spin by drawing small lines across the entire ball(I assume AboutGolf uses high speed photos to compare images of the balls at points in the path and derives actual numbers) Shots 1-14 were just to loosen up so don't look into those at all. Shots 15-17: Attempted to hit 75 yard SW with e12 Speed Shots 18-20: Full Swing SW with e12 Speed Shots 21-23: Attempted to hit 75 yard SW with ProV1 Shots 24-26: Full Swing SW with ProV1 Shots 27-31: Full Swing 6 Iron with e12 Speed Shots 33-36: Full Swing 6 Iron with ProV1 Shots 37-41: Full Swing Driver with e12 Speed Shots 42-45: Full Swing Driver with ProV1. Summary of Data: When I look at the numbers and average them (over 3-5 shots) I see extremely similar spin rates, smash factors, and carry distances. There are a couple things that did stand out to me. 1. I didn't calculate the standard deviation of the shots mostly because I took such a small sample size but I did notice a trend of the smash factor/carry distances of the ProV1 were significantly closer together. However the e12 was more likely to have spikes in distance, especially with my irons (something I mentioned in "on the course" testing). I hit my 6 iron up to 209 with the e12 where the ProV1 seemed to stay shorter with my best shots and further with the ones not hit as well leading to a more accurate grouping. 2. My "on the course" testing biggest surprise was the spin I got from the e12 when I hit half wedge shots. Now as I stated above I'm not sure how accurate some of the spin rates are but it seems like the e12 at least can generate almost the same spin as the ProV1 on full or even 3/4 shots. 3. As you can see these numbers match what I said about my "on the course" testing with the driver. I didn't notice any jump in distance and maybe just a slight increase in accuracy. My calculations had the ProV at average of 205.2 side spin and 119 side spin for the e12. Final Thought: I still can't stomach chipping, pitching and putting with the e12 but at least I know that I can get the thing to spin when I'm hitting it from beyond 45 yards (if I could ever figure out my yardages with it...) I realize the sample size (3-5 shots) was small and the data might not be quite as accurate as it could be (TrackMan) but I definitely wanted to put out some numbers that could at least show a side by side comparison of the e12 to what I normally play. Thanks for reading!
  11. Stage 2 Just finished stage 2. I still have one sleeve left and I still intend to try them on the local PGA simulator to get some actual numbers but I don't think that testing will change my review. Enjoy Spies! Sent from my Nexus 7 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  12. I just checked my match ups and roster... I'm going to need a miracle playing you guys this week.
  13. After doing all the testing with the e12. I'm super pumped for MGS ball test coming out today. I think I know where I feel like the e12 fits in the massive test and I'm curious to know if I'm right. https://twitter.com/MyGolfSpy/status/1122493188680441858
