    Not to get off the subject of putters but the one company I found that is relatively new and has inexpensive clubs that are very high quality as far as I'm concerned and that's Lazrus.
    I bought eight of their clubs five irons two hybrids and a seven wood and I love how they perform.

    A story: I pride myself in playing balls I find. I don’t play them if they are cut, but scuffs are typically fine. Is shoot anywhere from 85-95, have a driver swing speed from 100 to 110, and usually lose about 3 to 5 balls a round. I play balls I find because of the last part of that statement. I hate wasting money. 
    A couple of days ago I started thinking that maybe I should try playing with new balls to see if I can keep them in play. Of course I love playing Pro V1s I find, but I’m not shelling out $50 for 12. Earlier this year, I saw that MGS had a 40% deal for the Maxfli Balls and I was almost about to buy the 48-count box but bailed. Man do I regret that. Last night, I did more reading up on the Maxfli Tours including reading this thread and decided to grab the 2 dozen for $60 deal (would have been that much for 48 a couple of months ago). This morning my 10-year-old son and I hit the course for 18. 
    My first ball went into the fairway to the left of the hole I was on, but it was straight as an arrow, I just pulled it. I then took a breakfast ball and put it right where I wanted. 
    I’ll spare you the details of the whole round but will say this. I don’t think I played a lot better than normal (I didn’t keep score today, I just had one goal in mind which I’ll get to soon), but I think my drives were a bit straighter, and as long as ones I hit with Pro V1s (between 250-260 probably). I missed some fairways like normal, but only had one bad slice trying to hit a big drive on 16. I used the CG alignment on the tee and I loved that. It gave me confidence I was lined up properly. I was my typically bad self around the greens, but putted OK. 
    Going into the round I had one goal, don’t lose a ball. Not just because I am cheap but I knew that would improve my performance and keep me from getting frustrated. She had some adventures flirting with a lake, going in a creek (but not where I couldn’t get it with a retriever) and visiting the edge of the woods a couple of times. However when the last clip-clop of the cup sounded, she was there waiting for me to bring her home. 
    I’ve never played 18 with the same ball, and I’m not saying the ball is magic. If you hit it bad, it’s gonna be bad. But I’m very, very happy with the decision and I hope they go on sale again because I’m going to stock up on these suckers.

    bobr3 reacted to DiscipleofPenick in Poll: Spikes or Spikeless?   
    I've gradually purchased more spikeless shoes, but I still have 2 pairs of spikes. Basically I buy a color/style I'm looking for that affordable, regardless of spike type. I play a lot of morning and it's wet, I've never had traction issues, and I am a bit of an aggressive swinger. If anything I've had an occasional issue in August/September when a course can get burnt out or hardpan. But doesn't happen enough for me to worry about it.

    I have been using the Wilson staff balls. I have tried pro v1s I have tried just about every other premium ball on the map and yet I get as good if not better distance with the Wilson ball than anything else that I've tried

    I totally agree with the idea of getting rid of the green reading books that these guys have. If you're a professional golfer or a professional caddy you should be able to read greens you don't need a book to tell you
