  1. Any idea when results are to be posted? I perused the article but didn’t notice that. Looking forward to the comparisons and rankings. Also looking forward to how you will measure external looks of a ball if possible as well as individual preferences of a ball.
  2. A good review but, ultimately, the product is kind of a joke. We are all inundated with this obscene amounts of information and are combining that with the never ending desire to “feel better” because we are told we are doing life wrong. The Whoop band measures a few things and tracks “recovery” or rest or sleep and we want that info to understand stuff. If I play 54 holes in a day and wake up late from being out the night prior and I need a band / stupid pricey subscription to tell me that, then you have problems. The art of recovering comes from balance and you knowing how to recuperate. A waste of cash and time in my eyes but I do always see the appeal for people wanting more information to transform how they think they should be feeling according to some fitness influencers on Instagram. Buy it if you want but, it’s a fad and Rory / JT probably won’t have there’s for long. They seem to like the Peloton bike now which the Whoop band would freak out over.
  3. secured some for kibbles and bits. Thanks guys. Please close thread.
  4. I’ve already done that man. Thanks. Thanks brother. At least you understand where I’m coming from.
  5. Thanks brother. I'm definitely exercising all of those options already but, hey, why not take a shot on here?
  6. Title says it all. Will look at many options but, this little venture is just an experiment so the money is limited. Try and keep it under 300 - 400 ish. Condition does matter. Only caveat are they need to be blades, and stock L/L/L, and have Project X 6.5 shafts. No LZ. No PX. Etc. etc. Show me what you have pals.
  7. FJ does seem overprices and I continue to see that they seem to break down really quick. That's a lot to weigh on for the coming season
  8. I tried the SIM, Sim Max, Mavrik, Mavrik SUbzero, and the new Cobra on the launch monitors. Hands down, Mavrik SZ and Cobra have it locked this year. That is without trying the new Ping if there is one, Wilson, Mizuno etc. Great great great diver. Awesome.
  9. Some interesting input here gents. i should state that my current and lost used gamers are my Ecco Biom Hybrid 2s and they are great for what they are but, spikes are desired. I’m playing in SoCal. Tight lies, beat up tee boxes, hard greens, hard packed bunkers, and brutal rough at Torrey and clubs all around me. Spikeless are good and comfortable but, spiked are desired in a lot of situations. I’ll be visiting the store this afternoon and trying all of these shoes on. My Edwin watts is very well stocked.
  10. Straight up. I've only owned two pairs of spiked style shoes for our wonderful game. 1. Adidas Samba Pro Golf Shoes - Insanely comfortable though a bit rigid and slightly informal looking. These feel more like spikeless than anything. That being said, the spikes are a lot lower and don't give that grip you'd expect. Had to retire because they're beat up. 2. Underarmour Spieth 2s - I didn't mind these. I wrecked a few greens with them though. I have slightly heavy feet and don't always pick them up all the way onto the next step but had to retire because they were getting beat up. So my next pair of spikes is going to be from the footjoy family and I am wondering if anyone has input from the DNA Helix or Tour S shoes? Tour X was released on Footjoys website but, information is a bit scarce considering PGA show is due up in a week or two.
  11. Finally tried Z-star and XV last year and was very impressed. Big fan. Didn't get a chance to try the Q-Star TOurs but, I know they have a cult following. Big fan of the yellow finish too.
  12. Forged Tec is on an every year update if I'm not mistaken. I'd like to see if a Utility / Driving iron appear. I'd also like to see a forged tour one set show up in the new year.

    Wowowowow. That would be quite the find. I'd love it if those were exact copies.
  14. Range sesh today: Stretch a bit. Some light 9 - 3 swings with my 52 degree vokey. Practiced a few with that. Contact was great and all good things. Switched between that and pitching wedge. I rotated 5 or so shots in and out between the two then added the Tour Striker Smart Ball. Unfortunately, my contact was very spotty after. Fat, thin, you name it. When I get warmed up and loose, then my swing gets really loose and long. Crossing the line, flying elbow, etc. My goal in life is to shorten by swing separate my shoulder from my chin, per Monte Scheinblum. THat'll alleviate my lower and upper body sliding. From there, I went to hit driver. Nice light fades and baby draws first few shots. Then I started hitting low and toey strikes. Got mad at myself and closed it out with 25% swings with wedges again. Spotty contact. Goal for next week is 2 ranges sessions and 18 holes. Only swing though is half way back. That actually would equate to pros full back swing. I'm that loosy goosy.
  15. Everything looks real good, man. Anyone on this venture will tell you that 2 things are key. 1. Nutrition - You lose weight being in caloric deficit. It's that simple. 2. Consistency to a regimen - Continually working out harder *SMARTER* every gym session is the key. It'll always be the key. I'm not a registered dietician and I'm not a personal trainer but, through trial and error and youtube and self application / watching others, I'd consider myself savvy on the topic. I can help with a few tips if you're looking for some: - Always remember that people eat better to LOOK healthy, they workout to ACT healthy, and they do both to BE HEALTY. Take that to heart and you can't lose. - Always progressively overload and add weight only if you're ready to do so. No one gets stronger by benching 135 for 4 sets of 10 for 1 month straight twice a week. Your plateau is your body getting used to the work. - Do NOT stretch before a work out. Warm up and keep hydrated but, do not stretch. Stretch after and breathe while doing it. Go slow and take your time when stretching. - Lastly, it sounds like you're looking to lose a good amount of weight quickish. Implement intermittent fasting with a 6 or 8 hour eating window. I don't have much weight to lose and with this, I did start seeing lbs go away all the while gaining strength. Message me if you have questions. Have fun with it. Seeing changes and feeling better is a good feeling for me so it's cool to spread the positivity whenever possible.
