  1. I've tried several grips and even different sized grips because I like to experiment. I haven't found anything I like even close to the GP CP2 wraps. They have the perfect amount of tackiness, they work well in the rain, and they are very comfortable even with my hands having a slight bit of arthritis. My only complaint is the weight of these. The Jumbos are 81 grams and the Mids are 63. My clubs are an inch longer than standard because on my height, but grips this heavy can easily take your swingweight back considerably. By adding 4g of grip weight, the swingweight of a club is decreased by one swingweight point, and by increasing the length of the golf shaft by one-half inch, the swingweight will be increased by three swingweight points. So my clubs go up 6 points for length, but because I have grips that weigh 81 gr vs say a Winn Dri-Tac WRAP Oversize Grip that weighs 50 gr, I loose (31 grams additional grip weight) almost 8 swing weight points back, or 2 total.
  2. Rumor mill has it a certain organization we all know and love might be getting one of these for testing very soon?
  3. Latest teaser for GC3, supposedly European version of the launch Pro
  4. Fullswing Kit has been taking pre orders since December. Not much info has been released, except that it was to be released this month and looks like that will not happen. Radar based with 15 data points with a HD camera for recording your swing. Looks like a nice unit but the lack of information about it is obscene.
  5. Correct, that would be the "4 dot" club data the Quad uses.
  6.

  7. I believe the launch pro will be the GC3 in Europe. Here's some specs, including https://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache%3AqIa2B96vYtIJ%3Ahttps%3A%2F%2Flp.foresightsports.ca%2Fgc3%2F &cd=10&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us&fbclid=IwAR3iUODc_Z_vA1AUN2xtLRqkfgq2AQB0QtsYv8EMKyDwlEqHG5tqgGAlBxE
  8. I played the Modus 105 for two years, it was a great shaft. But at 64 I'm in the same boat as you with joint pain. I have access to a fitting room and tried several shafts, in the same two heads. I hit thousands of shots spread out over several weeks, recording each session for comparison at the end. Noting swing speed, smash, spin, launch angle, peak height, and most importantly to me, dispersion, both side to side, and front to back, and feel because I wanted a softer feeling smash. I kept going back to the UST Recoil 460 ESX in F3. The distance control with these was second to none. The shaft performed the best of the graphite's I tested for both dispersion and feel. It was ultra consistent week to week. And it tested better than any of the steel shafts I tried including the Modus 105. The only drawback was a higher launch. I ended up having the heads bent 1 deg strong to get the launch back down and that solved it for me. I typically swing a 7 iron about 82-83 mph and found the Recoils felt about a half step stiffer than they were listed. The F3 felt great, but the F4 was slightly too stiff for my swing speed. The torque is 4.7 but feels much less when hitting them. And even at 65 grams the shafts are weighted with a lower balance point to help replace steels without having to resort to drastic measures to achieve the same swing weight as before. Never regret the change and love my clubs even more now. Hope this helps.
  9. Looks like the rumored 3 cam system might be true?
  10. I think Google translate might be a bit racist, "Rye angle" IDK? I concur it looks like a 770 competitor though. I believe the Blueprints have a smaller footprint.
  11. Bushnell has no problems releasing a $550 range finder. And this LM is a heck of lot more complicated than those. I also don't see Foresight sports putting their name and more importantly reputation on a $500 LM. If they want to claim "tour level accuracy" it's not going to come in under $3000 and hold true to that claim. Foresight sports knows that just like when big screen TV's first came out and they were tens of thousands of dollars, mass production, and consumer use can drives those costs to a fraction of what a GC quad sells for now, and they need to be prepared to deal with that. It's just my opinion, so take it with a grain of salt. But history tends to repeat itself. The days of super high priced LM's are numbered, and there will always be room at the top end, the middle, and the low end depending on everyone's needs. How much data they need, and the accuracy level. Speed costs money, how fast do you want to go?

  13. I believe he I59 are the direct replacement for the Iblade , with a I210 replacement coming at the PGA show this winter.
