  1. I'm intrigued by the Chrome Soft X LS... Based on the data for my mid swing speeds it is longer than the Pro V1 I usually play with similar spin numbers. I'm gong to pick up a sleeve and alternate with the Pro V1 the next time I play and see if I like them. FWIW - my brother and nephew play the AVX and they routinely outdrive me by 30 yards. Hmmm. I may try the AVX too...
  2. Did some research as I was needing a new laser rangefinder as my 8yr old Bushnell unit eyepiece lost it's ability to focus a couple seasons ago. It was an amazing device - hunting centric but with the right modes to lock on a flagstick with no problem. After reviewing all golf centric rangefinders (and finding myself a little uncomfortable with the pricing I was seeing) I decided to look into the hunting version of the Bushnell rangefinder. I found the Bushnell Prime 1300. This thing as the exact same features as most golf centric units (including Ange Range Compensation) and the known Bushnell quality. Bought it for $170. Took it to the course and had zero issues. Easily locked up pins and was pleased with the options in the software . I can even use it to hunt :-). Don't feel like you need to pay $300+ for a name brand rangefinder. This unit works great!
  3. Love the idea of an affordable LM but I have reservations how useful the telemetry would be when at the range. Range balls are notoriously inconsistent and are nowhere near the quality of the balls we play when on the course. What's the value in recording data from cheap, inconsistent range balls? Garbage in equals garbage out.

  7. I did a full fitting at Club Champion. My old set was 11 years old and needed to go. I actually hit the Hot Metal a bit better but the feel on the Forged irons was off the chain. Wow! I had never played a forged iron and just during the fitting process I was impressed with the soft feel and the Trackman stats. I ended up purchasing the Forged, gw- 5 and went with the Hot Metal 4I, which I absolutely hammer. I’ve played 18 with them once and put in lots of range time and I Love these irons! First, they look amazing. The word I use when I talk or think about them is that they are “a work of art”. A nice clean look from up top and a nice bright finish. These are definitely a players club. Some forgiveness on the face, which is nice, but not much forgiveness from the sole on fat contact. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. They definitely dig more then a game improvement set. I got my 919F’s about a month ago and like you, I steepen on the downswing. My fat shots are definitely less forgiving with a significant distance loss than my old gi set. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
