  1. Just put a set of 3 T20 Wedges into my bag with DG S400 shafts to complement my new MP20s. So far, I am really liking the new wedges and irons. The wedges feel really nice on "touch" shots around the green.
  2. Gratton Stephens: Quinton, VA I typically practice putting 3-5 times per week approximately 30 minutes per session and play 2-3 times per week (weather permitting). I average less than one three putt per two rounds. Tech that gives analytical feedback that is instantly digestible and actionable is great. I have used the Tomi Pro system in the past and have a putting green in my basement along with my Mitchell fitting shop that includes a digital putting loft and lie machine. I am especially interested in how the "slope and speed" feature works on the Exputt. I would be able to make adjustments to my putter loft and lie using the information from the Exputt to test how well the Exputt can help dial in a putter. If the Exputt is truly "Hassle Free" and delivers accurate feedback, this would be a terrific addition to any serious golfer's routine. If desired, I could likely recruit several players of various skills and use the system to analyze and hopefully help them improve (who doesn't like free analysis..LOL). I don't randomly ask to act as a Tester, but this particular test is one that I feel well equipped to give feedback. Happy Independence Day!
  3. Mizuno T20: I am really enjoying my MP20s, so I met with my Mizuno fitter (Mulligans in Richmond VA) and we fit me for 3 T20s Satin finish. Jay (the fitter) took ample time to let me hit multiple wedge configurations using a lie board and fitting tape while hitting outdoors. We went with S Grind 50/07, M Grind 54/12 and C Grind 59/09 to create diversity in the grinds. I have a shop, so I can tweak the 54's grind a little if needed, but we did our best to fit based on the prevalent conditions in my home area. I was carrying a 52/56/60 set gapping, so it will be interesting how these work. I am hitting my MP20s with DG X100s, so we matched them up with DG S400 for shaft weight to help keep the swing weight reasonable (all my clubs are plus 3/4"). I will post a "review" when I get them and put them in play.
  4. Any Mizuno fitter should have the optimizer. I would question why they don't have it.
  5. The more I play the MP20s, the better I like them.
  6. LOL.... I remember my first fitting with my MP57s and the even better feeling with the new MP 20s.
  7. I am eager to try a review, I bet it would be awesome!
  8. LOL, I can't in good conscience as I just got new clubs and typically prefer 1" longer. I wouldn't want to take an opportunity from someone who could really benefit. I will keep my eyes peeled for other review opportunities.
  9. UPDATE: Mizuno MP20 Performance After a couple rounds, I "got in the dirt" at the range and made a swing tweak that "unlocked" my MP 20s. I played two rounds at an old school layout course only using irons, wedges and putter to force me to use all of my new irons. I am even happier with the MP20s now after putting in the work. My misses are staying in play and I am flushing a higher percentage of my shots. I am excited to get out an play them again as soon as possible. I know these aren't for everyone, but encourage everyone to get fit and find clubs that make you want to get better while helping you enjoy the challenge that is golf. These clubs are inspiring me to work to play better and I am having a blast in the process.
  10. Blessings to our active and retired service members and their families.
  11. Played my Mizuno MP20s for the first time today in a club tournament. I was trying to be a little "too smooth" on the first 8 holes. After that I got a rhythm and they feel really good. I didn't have a good scoring day due to some bad luck and a few mistakes, but I am very happy with how the MP20s performed. My "over draws" were not there today and missed shots stayed on line. I am very impressed coming from MP 57s at the tighter dispersion and I am getting the same distance.
  12. I just got a set of MP20s today. I hit them on the range and they are in my bag for a tournament tomorrow. They feel great! I was playing MP57s that were about 13 or so years old. I will report back on how they play vs. my old set tomorrow.
  13. Hi, I like the extra storage a cart bag provides, but many of the ranges/courses I frequent don't have readily accessible bag stands. I really like having the ability to set my bag down with stand legs. I have been using the Sun Mountain C130-S bag for a few years and really like it. Who prefers Hybrid Bags? Maybe we could get a review on them if there are enough of them to review...LOL I am getting a new bag to go with new MP20s that are on order and am open to suggestions.
  14. I have used a C130 Stand bag for the past two years and have no issues with the liners so far. I really like the bag and it has held up well. I would try the PING bag if they had a hybrid type bag.
