  1. I’ll be posting my official review sometime next week most likely. I broke my left foot pinky toe so I’ll be down for another 4-6 weeks. Come on 2021, you can’t get here fast enough! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  2. Looking for a used US Kid's Golf club - PW 39" My son has the 3wd, 7iron, and putter, but he wants a matching PW. They are $35 new and he is just about into the 42" size (we'll get him that set next year for his B-day). For now, it will serve to fill out his set and be a good set for his sister when she gets them next year. Let me know if you have one and what price shipped. Thanks!
  3. So I’m putting the Frontline Elevado back in play. I like that the sight line is at the same height as the ball. I took it to practice with tonight and liked what I saw, so it’s earned another shot. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  4. So update on my GCQuad session. My swing and AOA have changed substantially. When I was fit for this driver, I had a +5 AOA. As such, I needed a low spin head and low spin shaft. My launch was high enough to get the benefit of no spin. Since doing the heel stomp drills and working on a flatter AOA, my AOA is now closer to 0 to +1. As such, the driver setup doesn’t really fit that swing. It is a much more consistent AOA and my irons are flying with proper trajectory now. Divots are better and more forgiving as well. Long story short, I may need a new driver setup. We cranked up the loft and added a heavier weight to my current driver. I’ll see how it handles on the course, but I was basically hitting baby cuts that would carry 295-300 and roll out to 315-325. My fitter told me that this is all that DJ, Rahm, and all the others are looking for out of their drivers. If they wanted to go +5 and no spin like Bryson has done, they could, but their accuracy would go south. I was very tired (have been battling insomnia for the past few weeks), so I wasn’t feeling fast at all, and my speeds were a little slower than last time. But I’m chalking that’s up to sleep deprivation, not regression. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  5. So I was at my fitter yesterday and I asked about the Edel torque balanced putters. They had one built up so I started putting with it. All I can say is WOW!! What a trippy feeling. I swear the thing just doesn’t do anything but stay square to the arc and hit it where you point it. You literally hold it and rock your shoulders. It doesn’t suck to the inside, loop, want to hood or open too much. It’s crazy. I was asking the guys if this should be illegal. They said no, because obviously you still have to pick the line/speed to make any putt, and no putter can do that for you. They showed me you could try to cut the putt and it would still go in the hole. It was unbelievable. Any MGS’ers have one? In strongly considering getting fit for one in the future. The thing that is unfortunate is that they don’t exactly look all that appealing considering what we are used to in a putter. The shaft angles, etc... Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  6. I do know they make a counter-weighted stick now. I’ve given up on putting to much emphasis on the PRGR readings for me. I’ll just focus on GC Quad data and actual course data during rounds. The PRGR just doesn’t seem to like my swing for some reason. Maybe your path was off that day? Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  7. You should reach out to Kyle at SuperSpeed. He might recommend the Long Drivers version of the sticks/program. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  8. I mean..... that would have you swinging as fast as World Long Drive champion Kyle Berkshire. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  9. Level 2 - Week 5 Summary video below! I hit a new PR with the red stick (finally). I had a heel-stomp of 128mph and a double-step of 124mph. Something to clarify, in my speed records (the online Google sheet) and my charts, I am only reporting the 'normal swings' and not the heel-stomp and/or double-step swings.
  10. Nice review sir. I'd venture to say that you like SuperSpeed overall.... maybe just a little bit. Your results were solid and it is fun to see the payoff on the course. I've still got 3 weeks to go to finish up my Level 2, but the last round I played I didn't have a single drive under 300yds and the fairways were on the softer side. Needless to say, I'm pleased as well. Are you going to continue on with Level 3 immediately or take some time off?
  11. Alright, played yesterday and I definitely was hitting the center of the club more consistently and squaring the face up at impact. Fairways and course in general were soggy from all the rain we had so not much roll out on drives. Highlights: Hole 2: 170yd par 3: 8iron hole high Hole 6: 190yd approach, 7iron long Hole 7: 487yd par 5: only had 170 in (317yd drive right up the middle) Hole 9: 391yd par 4: 70yd approach into the green (320yd drive up the middle) Hole 13: 545yd par 5: 190yds approach into the green (355yd drive up the middle) Now putting..... that's another issue lol. Might be time for the Cleveland Frontline Elevado that I reviewed for MGS to make a return to the bag... That or I just need to actually practice some.
  12. Had my second session of week 5 yesterday. Had a few normal green stick swings back up at 140mph and blue seems to be back up to the 131mph consistently with the normal swing again. I’m planning on hitting on GC Quad on the 12th to see what’s what. Also playing a round today (first round since June 30th with no practice in between). The course has a few holes where I can swing as hard as I want without any trouble, so we will see what I can do. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  13. Looks like rain on forecast for much of this week. I might actually get to play a round of golf on Saturday though! I've been averaging 1 round per month with no practice, so it should be interesting if I do get to play.
  14. Shankster I agree with Apollowshowl here. Some days it is just going to be slow. Down south we’ve got extreme heat and humidity that just saps your energy some days. Combine that with lack of sleep due to parenthood and/or restless nights and it is just par for the course. If it is a consistent trend for a few weeks, then maybe revisit it.
