    I love my family and love to be with them. Anything art related like drawing, painting, pottery, etc. and trolling others artwork at galleries. Outdoor activities - hiking, jogging, the beach (used to be a surfer girl and still have my own blue surfboard) and of course playing different golf courses. Music festivals and live concerts. Reading a good page turner on my iPad.

  1. Happy Birthday today @downlowkey! You are awesome.
  2. Today, I loaned my Wilson testing irons to another lady golfer to try out . So far after one round, she likes them and how they feel. Like me, she especially likes the graphics on the soft grips that help her line up the club face. She's going to keep them for a couple of weeks then I'll post her comments.
  3. I did. After studying the MGS Ball Test, I purchased 2 dozen retail Maxfli Tour balls on sale from Dick's Sporting Goods. My epsom salt floating balance test was quite disappointing. Compared to the Chromesoft and Sxiron I also floated, except for a couple balls the Maxfli spun quickly each time to the same high spot which was never on the printed CG line. The whole point was to find myself a new consistently balanced ball that didn't break my bank, so I returned them all. To be fair, I did not hit any of them because I didn't want to return used balls. I then re-studied the MGS ball data to find another option.
  4. Wow, what a perfect indoor place to practice your swing! Lay down a few strips of wide masking tape (so you don't damage the carpet) and you have a great place to practice with foam balls all winter.
  5. No. I've played with the same ball - Bridgestone Tour B XS. And I put all them through the salt water balance test before using them. (I have a few that I kept for "practice" only because they have rough surface areas.)
  6. Yes sir, absolutely. It's an issue for me that I've alluded to since the beginning. At first I thought it was a reflection of me and my skill level but others have had similar distance issues. In my reviews I labeled it distance inconsistency but occasion flyers and a face hot spot are apt descriptions. The surprise happens more with the 5, 6 and 7 irons (especially my 6 iron).
  7. We just need a little more time for the rest of the Wilson's (or us) to work into place. I feel confident that the rest will make it.
  8. Woohoo I finally did it! The course was not busy this evening so I dropped 4 balls on this tee determined to figure out how to hit the Wilson 7 iron over the water and stay on the green. #4 ball stuck. After playing we went back to that same hole so I could conquer it again. YES, and within 4ft of the hole on the 1st attempt. Gee what a relief and confidence booster. Next act - conquer the 6 & 5 irons.
  9. Thank you for the kudos. The whole idea of doing testing/reviews is so other people can learn from the participants. I've learned so much from others' posts since joining MyGolfSpy. I just love it. I like sunny 95° beach weather but I also like bundling up for a hike in the mountains when there is light snow!
  10. On the Wilson website they list (Try before you buy) demo sets of the D7 for $9.99. The men's are currently out of stock but I suggest that you contact them to see when more will be available. The ladies sets are still in stock and ready for a trial.
  11. Just notice you added one for me. Wow, how cool is that! Makes me feel official and part of the gang. Thanks.
  12. Hi fellow spies. I posted my Stage 2 review for these Wilson D7 irons last night. Yippee! A couple of you had asked about bump & run and around the green shots. Find out what I discovered (and learned).
  13. I agree. We're almost to the end. And I'll try to get a video of my new bump and run shot!
  14. I just looked at all of them. No wear at all. But after five years my Ping Serene club cavities also don't show wear. Even from an angle you can see how much wider the soles on my Pings are. I also checked the holes on the soles, which to me are not holes at all because they are filled with a hard polymer. I expected to see at least a little wear here but all of those are fine and don't show any wear. There is a slight indention for each hole so the polymer probably doesn't receive the same ground contact abuse as the surrounding metal parts of the sole. As expected the highly polished soles have accumulated lots of scuffs. This photo is of the 7 iron which has been one of the least used in the set. But still shows I have been using these!
