  1. I use the Grint, but mainly as a source for recording rounds for handicap purposes. While on the course, I prefer to use my Garmin G80 or my rangefinder depending on the situation.
  2. Typically I have about 3 sleeves of balls, one extra glove, some tees, club wrench, one divot tool, a couple specific coins I use as markers, a sharpie, rangefinder, handheld gps, towel, rain jacket, snowcap, sunscreen, and a couple coozies. If I plan to walk, I take out everything that I know I will not need (e.g. rain jacket, snowcap).
  3. Welcome to the forum! How is that Cobra driver treating you?
  4. Thank you for the great photos! Those new icons are definitely sweet looking. Let us know how you hit them.
  5. I have a combo set with 7-PW in the MP-20 MMC and I am absolutely in love with the irons. I have a feeling you won't want to take those new sticks out of your bag for a long time.
  6. Love the Mizunos! How are the wedges? I must admit, I have never hit a Mizuno wedge.
  7. Three rounds in with the new mizzys so I thought I would report back on some initial thoughts. Being early in the season and a club/shaft change to boot, it took me a bit to get in a groove with them, but once I started making solid swings, I fell in love. First, these clubs are as beautiful at address as they are in the bag. Second, I have played irons from multiple different manufacturers over the years, and I can now affirm that there is something to the #nothingfeelslikeamizuno slogan. On a well struck shot, both the HMB and MMC (even more so) felt so unbelievably amazing. I have never experienced irons that felt this nice; simply pure. I even got a "nice shot" from a gentleman playing in front of me who was near the next tee as I flushed a PW to about 5 feet or so on an approach. I can't remember the last time a shot of mine garnered any attention from those playing around me, at least attention that was not preceded by me yelling, "fore!". Ultimately, if you have the ability, I would strongly recommend the the HMB/MMC combo. You will love them!

    SIM vs. SIM Max

    I am seriously interested in hitting the SIM whenever this pandemic calms down and clubfitters open back up near me.
  9. Robert / Bloomington, Indiana 9.3 I currently play Mizuno MP-20 HMB/MMC combo. I would love to test the PTX Pro-Icon Combo! What better way to test whether the DTC segment can match an industry titan on feel/performance?

    I still have them! It was just a fluke opportunity where I was able to snag the mizzys at a great price due to a friend looking to offload them. Overall, I still like the Cobra irons, they are solid clubs. I did miss having a thinner topline and sole, espeically in the scoring irons, however. The MMCs have been beautiful in that regard. I plan to throw together a second full set with the Cobras so I can continue to have fun and tinker around with the different toys.
  11. Hi Everyone, I'm fairly new to MyGolfSpy and looking forward to chatting with others that are passionate about the game. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? I have been playing for 20 years. I picked up the game at 14 when my family moved to Saginaw, MI and the new friends I made all seemed to love golf (I had never played), and I figured if I was going to fit in with the group, I better start playing. What do you love about golf? I love everything about it; however, the things I appreciate most of all are the endless challenge and pursuit of improvement, and the opportunity to spend a few hours with my closest friends joking, having fun, and sharing a beverage or two as we all play the game we love. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I came to MyGolfSpy for an opportunity to converse with others who share a passion for golf and golf equipment and to hopefully learn some new things while having fun. Where are you from? What is your home course? I am originally from Kalamazoo, MI and while I don't really have a home course, I would say that Purgatory Golf Club in Noblesville, IN has been the closest thing to it the past several years as I have been living in Indiana. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? The best thing about golf in the midwest is its relative affordability compared to some other areas of the country, and speaking about Michigan in particular, the sheer number of courses that are available is outstanding. If you have not experienced golf in northern Michigan, you are missing out! The worst thing about golf in my region is that the season is just too damn short. What do you do for a living? I am currently law student, and will be practicing in Chicago next year when I graduate. How’d you pick your user name I'm lame and just combined parts of my name.
  12. I would love the "Broke 80" tag. To date, it is my biggest accomplishment in the game. Thanks!
  13. In the past I struggled to hit the 3Ws I had off the deck but still used them off the tee on shorter par 4s. Now I have a 3W that I love and I use it off the tee and also on many par 5s. It's not going anywhere.
