  1. I was one of the official testers......and as time has gone by I've still been playing back and forth between the Tour BX balls I was sent and my Z-Star XV's. I'm like other parties mentioned, if I hadn't already had several dozen of Z-Star xv's in my closet this Tour BX would be the one I would stock up on. This all said, and after more time playing the TourBX, and I will say I HATE these types of comments (upcoming) b/c I can't "test it" and it's anecdotal and without measure..................but..............when I'm going out to play and if I see it's a windy day, I always reach for the Tour BX. It just "seems" strong" in the wind
  2. Without mevo at the end of my season last season, I could not have built nor would I have known these numbers, which have become a backbone of my wedge knowledge: 78-93-104-114. When I hhave a wedge distance, I literally chant those numbers in my head now, they are the carry numbers for a 3/4 swing with each of my wedges. Reason I memorized that is b/c (thanks to mevo) I found a pattern in my numbers. If I know my 3/4 carry number, I found out that subtracting 7 yds and adding 7 yds also fell in line with my carry numbers for 1/2 and full swings. This opened up more shots than I knew I had, by ALOT!
  3. I also have and use Mevo......and I actually also like to use the feature of going onto myflightscope.com, your sessions can automatically go to the cloud and you can review all data on the website instead of the phone, and also can export into spreadsheets if wanted. Can also easily get those wanted "club averages" from there too
  4. "Rockwind in Hobbs is a great course and worth your drive. 1.5 hours" Played there last fall season and I agree, that was a cool little place to play. Intrickit green complexes, that were also on the small side. And surrounding runoff slopes on certain sides of the greens which you best stay on the correct side of.......I was overall impressed with that muni.
  5. I did not quite gather that from the input they gave.
  6. Well, won't state it directly but will instead strongly imply by pointing out that higher skilled folks choose not to do so....and so then........(cough). But I'd never tell anyone either, but I would infer it!
  7. Ok, so I don;t know how to embed a video (Rookie!).........but if you make it through this video you capture the essence Alex Evan youtube channel. British humor with golf, great channel https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U-Lm074XSIw
  8. TXG and Alex Evans. Honestly I don;t understand how Alex Evans channel has NOT blown up with more subs. The guy is a good golfer trying to make it as a pro, he's hilarious, he makes quality content and his best golf buddy on the channel who is on regularly with him is a freakin top 75 golfer in the World golf rankings!?!? And they are both funny, I thought he'd go viral with his content but not as of yet I guess. I'll link his content b/c its got lots of great stuff https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWNL-9pRK2aev1oCRJNnevw/videos
  9. Review is up, sans spending to much time fighting some format errors which plagued, and limiting word count. Boiled down, for me and this ball, the Tour BX........I was playing only Srixon Z-Star XV and ProV1x's last year. Suffice it to say, this year will be Z-Star XV AND Bridgestone Tour BX. I already had 4 dozen Z-Star XV's in closet before getting picked for this so I'll play those, but the B'stone for me will certainly replace the Prov1x as an option. Tour BX just gets through the wind much better for me with irons and off tee with Driver. I fight spin and the ProV1x's (for me) get to much "float" when compared this Tour BX EDIT: and the Tour BX cover durability, far surpassed the other two balls mentioned in my opinion. That cover survives extremely well I thought
  10. Got through an entire round yesterday with a single Tour BX ball and I'm still impressed with the durability of the cover. From all play I've had with these balls I'd say the cover survives the life of play longer than I can play them before I typically loose them. This ball has performed well overall, it has not "separated" itself away from other premium balls I usually play but it darned sure goes into rotation for me with never a single surprise.
  11. #9 yesterday, standing in the fairway sitting on even par thus far on day. Green is bisected in middle with a ridge running acrossed left to right making it two tiered. Fairway slopes heavily left to right so I'm standing with ball below feet, 148yd to a front pin. Thinks to self, "try and rip 9 iron knowing I need it all and be 100% perfection, or 3/4 an 8 iron and be sure to not get above the shelf." The ball below feet made that discussion easy, not comfortable with that hard a 9 iron with ball below me. Played the 3/4 8 iron, flush it, we all hear the ball make that nice instant "swooooooooooosh" through the air as it leaves and before it even reaches it's apex I call out loud, "Go in".......still flying and now on descent down I call it again "oh go in." Ball hits just adjacent to pin, gets alittle of slope and rolls next to cup, couple inches away. Did not go in but was told "don't bring your putter you won't need that," and get to make the turn to back 9 at -1
  12. TXG thoughts on the new balls also now https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BTvUD3cSnd4
  13. So the general consensus here is it's better than the previous and or better than the "other" brand you played? It's the new sliced bread? It runs faster and jumps higher?
  14. Again I agree. But all things bolded are also still not a "standard." They are attempting to implement a standard piece by piece, letting the engineers beat them to the next piece. Point still being, if equipment is where "they think" they can stop this, they must go all the way there and implement the "standard model." Without, leaves the companies to go around looking for all those things (or others) mentioned. But they won't yet do this for many reasons I'd imagine. I agree with you and Brandel, my mind sees the implement of course design being most logical. Just being devils advocate, I understand what they are tip toing around with the basic throwing out for general public opinion.......but it's not really helping them to resolve because that would be tough and piss people off LOL
  15. When we watched the Superbowl, did we tire of the advertisements for the competing manufacturers football that went further, with the 7% lower drag and tighter spiral, pattern designs for easier catches, or "tight seam pattern for aerodynamics?" (lol) The World series, got sick of all the adds for the new baseball bats, with "unobtanium," low center of mass for down the line homers and easier flight out past center field. So on and so on.....golf has allowed those to be built deep into the fabric and it's fearful on what to do. But given all the years of this, what are they seeing now and scared of versus when we were going from all the other advancements in decades gone by, before manufacturers were golf's "steroid" and woven in before steroids were in baseball (during the * era of baseball) Man I don't know. LOL
