  1. How are all of you finding the performance of these irons in wet conditions? A lot has been discussed on the internet show how the Hydropearl 2.0 retains spin in their wedges and I wonder if any of you have noticed a performance boost. Also, how's the finish holding up? I remember the G700 review from last year and how those beautiful clubs marked up. Sent from my SM-N975U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  2. I'm surprised that your Cobra's spun more than the Lynx, considering your loft difference. But, having played the F8's, they did seem to spin quite a bit. Maybe something to do with the extra milling on the face? I wish I would have gotten photos of the numbers they were putting up when I got fitted. That's the obsession I had with distance whenever I bought them taking over and being what I wanted out of them so bad. I will say that I took a couple of photos of the Tommy Armour's and the spin on the 7 iron was around 5200 rpm. I will admit as much as I have brought up the lack of customization in this thread the one thing I have really appreciated about the XP85 shaft is that it's the least abusive steel shaft I've ever hit. I can either play or spend lots of time at the range and not have the soreness in the elbows from hitting so much. P.S. I think is awesome you went to UT, Go Big Orange!

  3. Kiffin back in the SEC should be interesting, as his last head coaching job there was a joke. Ole Miss better hope he doesn't get a better offer next year and leave in the middle of the night. At least he's in the West and should be an annoyance to Saban. Sent from my SM-G955U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  4. Great questions! 1. We were offered different flexes, we had the option to go with regular or stiff flex. As far as the lie angles go, mine are standard and I'm positive that I could have had them adjusted if I had wanted. One of the things I like about the Atomics is they have a slot on the hosel similar to Ping that probably make the adjustment easy. 2. I thought the stopping power was really good for SGI clubs. They launch high and come down soft. I had several instances where my ball stopped close to the pitch mark. Sent from my SM-N975U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  5. I have both a Superman and a Flash shirt and I don't resemble either. As far as the Mavrik driver goes, it's not pretty but I said the same thing about the Epic Flash and it performs spectacularly. Sent from my SM-N975U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  6. I had a game planned for Saturday and my playing partner was not able to make it. With Christmas coming up, he had family obligations to take care of. So the round was postponed and since I didn't feel like playing solo, I decided to hit the range today. I'm still working on more consistency with my irons. I didn't find the center of the face as well as last week but I did tend to mis-hit consistently. Although I was a bit toward the heel. 8 iron 6 iron (a little more erratic) 4 iron One thing I will say about SGI clubs is that I was seeing good launch and a minimal loss of distance. I still need to work on alignment and try to become more accurate. After the range session, it was back to the putting green working on greenside chips and putting from where they landed, trying to cut down on three putts. My best results are here: I did hit one a little hot that ended up on the other side of the green. That was a three putt. Sent from my SM-N975U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  7. I went back to the range today and thought since I was a bit under the weather last weekend I would take another speed reading. I took five swings and registered 94, 94, 93, 89, and 94. That's an average of 92.8 mph and still up from the original speed I had of 89. Plus, you have to factor in that I'm also gaming a different driver, my original driver was 279 grams and my current driver is heavier. I can't find the total weight on Google. All it wants to show is the adjustable weight is 12 grams. I'm going to say I know the grip is 56 and the shaft is 59 for a total of 115. I'll assume the head is around 200 grams for a total of 315.

  8. I like to use mine mainly on approach shots from 160 and in. Those are the shots I feel I might have a chance to at least hit the green. I have Arccos that tells me the distance to the center, but I find that a rangefinder makes a huge difference in knowing pin location. Sent from my SM-N975U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  9. That's a great video and both of your reactions were priceless. That carpet looked fast and it didn't look like the ball was going to make it. Was that the Cleveland putter with the homemade shaft?
  10. That's a pretty interesting piece of equipment. I just tried looking up videos on YouTube but most of them are in Korean. I was hoping to see some reviews. For the price, it looks like it could be a blast to have. Sent from my SM-N975U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  11. Congrats testers! This should be an interesting test and it looks like we've got the group to get 'er done. I'm looking forward to seeing what Bridgestone has in store for their 2020 golf balls. Have fun! Sent from my SM-N975U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  12. He's got the fantasy football magic going on right now, that's for sure. Sent from my SM-N975U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  13. I think that's fair, that was a mistake on my part for not paying attention to the little details. I went in more with the understanding of the NCAA bracket than how the NFL does the reseeding. I can honestly tell you that I follow the NFL a lot less closely than most of you since I live in the south where the college game is king. That and my only close to local option growing up was the Falcons. I appreciate the points and would be completely understanding if my bracket was considered to be disqualified because I didn't follow the proper protocol. The important thing is the fun that this fantasy season has been. I couldn't tell you how many times I checked the scores to see how the games were going. That, and the fellowship here is once again top notch. I appreciate the clarification, and apologize for my mistake. Sent from my SM-N975U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  14. Were we supposed to reseed by bracket? Sent from my SM-N975U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  15. Excellent job and a fair, honest review. I like how you talked about your initial thoughts and how you just knew you would hate these clubs, but the performance won you over. I felt the same way with the Epic Flash Sub Zero driver. I hit it at the fitting and knew, just knew it couldn't replace the Ping G400 LST. I was wrong. Your review is the reason I place so much weight on the forum reviews on our site, it's the honest thoughts of a bunch of golf schmucks. (Couldn't resist) I am glad you have decided to play these and hopefully we'll hear about some even better performances once you can play them in warmer weather.
