  3. U.S. only..... bummer! I'll sit this one out and wait for the results. Good luck folks! Look forward to the reviews!
  4. Does anyone own any Hreski clothing? See adds for them and they have some pretty interesting prints. https://hreski.com/about-us/
  5. Haven't tried the Speith 3 yet but own a pair of Speith 2. For me, I've found them to be the most comfortable shoe I've had in years. Have had a number of pairs of Adidas shoes including a new pair of 360 2,0 Boost. Whatever fits your feet the best and gives you the best support and comfort over 5 hours of walking is the best shoe and brand for you! I must admit, I haven't owned a pair Footjoys for years but I think it's time to give them a try again.
  6. Agreed about too much adjustability for the average consumer could be detrimental. I totally agree about custom fits. I would say that 95% of golfers (I could be way off, just an assumption based on all the guys I play with and know) set it and forget it. They are not tinkerers. However, there are a few of us that are... Insert my name here... HA HA! Not sure about the shaft issue. I'd have to see the mechanical issues involved. I wonder if an iron with a sleeved tip would change it's playing characteristics? Interesting question for shaft manufactures. Fitters seem to have a universal fitting system where they can put multiple manufactures heads on multiple shafts. So you can try Ping, Callaway, TM etc... head with the exact same shaft without having multiple shafts with multiple adaptors. So, the tech exists but I wonder if we"ll ever see it as consumers. Hopefully, we'll get a few more people to chime in on this!
  7. Sounds fun! If it's the second half of July I might be able to come, In Hawaii for 2 weeks.
  8. Can anyone who works in the industry explain to me why golf manufacturers have not come out with adjustable hosels in irons? Cobra and TM both have utility irons that are adjustable but no one seems to have iron sets that are. I assume there may be weighting issues and some manufacturing issues to take into consideration. Do you see this coming in the future or do you see irons always being bonded? So, for a guy like me who is 1º flat in my irons, I could have a "standard" set with adjustable hosels that allow me to adjust the lie angle up to 2º flat or upright. I suppose they could adjust loft as well. For those of us who really want to dial in a specific gapping between irons. So, if you could adjust loft and lie by 2 º each, wouldn't fitting be that much easier? You could have a standard loft, retro spec loft, and power spec loft all in one package. (Can you tell I'm a Ping guy?) I think this would be a really interesting option to have. Love to hear your thoughts on this. Cheers!
  9. Hi Folks I understand Mizuno are releasing their line of Golf balls in North America this year. I know they have been out in Japan and Europe for a number of years now. Anyone had a chance to play them? Thoughts? Watched and read a couple reviews but wanted your feedback. Didn't see a Mizuno ball thread so I thought I'd start one. I'm pretty happy with my ball, Snell MTB Black but I'd be interested in giving the Mizuno ball a try. Just because I can!! Mizuno seems to be firing on all cylinders this year with the release of the ST190 series woods and their irons of course... enough said about irons! Cheers!
  10. Didn't realize members got a chance to test products and keep them. Did sign up for Galway bay gear testing. Pretty cool! Hopefully, someday I will get the opportunity to do a product test and review for MGS! Did I mention I live and play in the rain capital of CANADA!?!?!? Cheers!!
  11. I've been playing golf for 20+ years but have really taken it more seriously in the last 7 or 8 years. I'm a 9 handicap, who is aiming to be a 7... Aren't we all.... Handicap is frozen for the winter but my scores have really started to come down this winter. Regularly shoot in the high 70's and low 80s, with the odd round in the low to mid-70s. 73 best round 3 times. I love the fact that as good as you can play you can never play a perfect game! Keeps you coming back for more every single time!! Love the comradery and friendly competition that brings golfers together!! Other than my family memories, my best memories are of fun times with buddies on the golf course!! Awesome! I've been following MGS for a couple years now and decided to become part of the family. #1 place to find any kind of golf content!! Sorry Mark Crossfield, Rick Sheils, James Robinson.... etc... Still, love you guys too... Shout out to TXG Tour Experience Golf!! Good Canadian kids!!! Keep up the fine work!! I'm from Vancouver in Beautiful British Columbia, Canada! I'm a players club member at Morgan Creek Golf Course, which is where I play much of my golf. However, my golf group will play at several different courses. Sand Baggers and Whiners. We have some very nice courses here in Metro Vancouver as well as world-class courses all over the province. Our weather is the worst thing about where we live. That being said, I have played every weekend since Sept until last week, when mother nature decided to dump 40cm (15 3/4 inches) on us. Can't complain about our weather so far this winter... It can melt anytime... I'm a teacher. Summers off to feed the addiction. Looking forward to getting to know like-minded golf fanatics!! Cheers!!
  12. I love the Fetch. I've played lots of Odyssey putters and had a S.C. Golo 5 that I played for a while. Most consistent roll I've ever had with a putter. Nice to be able to adjust the length. Easy to do and very solid design and construction. The grip is the PP60. It sits very nicely in the hands. Little slimmer that the Flatso 2.0 and sits a bit deeper in the fingers, if that makes sense. The feel is interesting but solid. Depending on what ball use, it has a solid feel and sound. Shorter putts inside 20 feet seem to come off with a softer feel, yet it gives good feel and feedback on longer putts with a slightly harder feel and sound but nothing that feels harsh or clicky. It's definitely a different feel and sound but I really like it! Won't be leaving the bag anytime soon! I thought the hole might be a little gimmicky but it's nice to just drop the hole on the ball and away you go. (never out of the hole) It aligns nicely with the two black lines and the hole, like the old two ball putters. I went from DG S300 stiff to the AWT 2.0 x-stiffs. I haven't had my swing speed checked in a while. I carry my 7 iron 180 ish. Somewhere around 90... Driver swing speed is 110-113. AWTs are Nippon shafts. Yes, love my I200s!!

  14. David Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada - Rain capital of Canada! Under Armour Storm Gortex Worst day I've ever played in was a tournament at Kings Links - Rain started on hole 2 and came in sideways all day. Winds were 40-60km. Umbrella broke on the fifth hole. Came in after the tournament round drenched to the skin!! Had to take my shoes off and pour water out of them! Crazy day!! Guys were so wet the skin on their hand and feet went white like they'd stayed too long in the swimming pool. It was brutal!!
