  1. I don’t know what Hogan did different with the black wedges and irons. What is pretty cool about them is it seems like the face is a little more durable.
  2. I think all of us in this site are golf true believers. Before I go out and spend $109 I was just looking to see if this was one of those devices that makes it past 1 season in my bag or my warm up routine. There is no magic bullet. But I’m like most golfers who gets 15-20 min before my round to warm up and sometimes it’s checking in and hitting the course immediately.
  3. I have the ptx pro black irons and a 50 & 54 black equalizer wedge. I love them. I am lucky because my fitting measurements are standard. They look fantastic in my bag and one of the neat things about the black irons is after each shot I can tell where I made contact with the ball. I didn’t like the hogan grips that came with them. I have a 4 degree gap from my 4 iron to my 54. I have a hitoe 58. I am very satisfied with the irons.
  4. I had the 50/54/58 set up as well. I have the black finish and I love the 50 and 54 for stock shots, half, and 3 quarter swings. They both have great feel and work well through the turf. I had to get rid of the 58. Anytime I tried to open the face the club didn’t feel right to me. It worked well as long as I kept the face square. I am very satisfied with the other 2 wedges.
  5. hellrung do you still use the orange whip? I’d love to know if it’s stood the test of time.
  6. MGS has 2 things that move the needle. #1 the driver test. (No brainer we all are looking for the one unicorn driver that cracks the code) #2 golf ball test. (Hit the lottery with this one...find it cut it...who knew how big this would be) The beauty in the driver test was it’s simplicity. Testers with varying handicaps hit multiple drivers. The data was posted and we got to read it. As a reader I knew that I wasn’t getting an exact duplication of the results I would get, but I’m a smart enough person to read between the lines. It was straight forward human testing with flaws included. The data will always change because there is a human element. That fact still wouldn’t keep me from wanting to see what numbers were achieved year in and year out. MGS changed the data to relate to the individual who was testing and then posted a composite of averaged gains and losses of all testers. But they left out a big chunk of relevant data. How LONG was the gain and how MUCH was the loss. Then to top it off they have a podcast and they don’t discuss the results. If this was the biggest and most extensive test why would you change how you present the results and then not talk about it or at least write an article. I would love to hear or read about this from someone who is employed and/or actually participated in the collection and presentation of the data. I think it’s fantastic that there are testers (3 of 35 from 2018) who posted on this thread alone. Your information from when you participated is great insight. But that fact alone doesn’t make biblical truth on 2020 test. Bottom line is unless you are an employee at MGS you have no idea what is going on. I seriously doubt there is an email chain of the past 300+ testers that are let in on everything that is happening. Hey maybe I’m wrong maybe you guys are all clued in. That would be a true perk of being a tester.
  7. They already did the test. They just need to post the data so you can do a side by side comparison. No need to retest anything.
  8. How are you going to release the 2020 driver test and on your first podcast back not talk about it? 15 min on shafts? Cmon guys. Ping was your winner and you posted results that you needed a math degree to understand. Fun Fact: we want to know how drivers from years past compare to the newest offerings.
  9. I have no problem walking. When I lived in the mid Atlantic more of the golf courses you could walk. I live in Florida now and the majority of courses I’ve played on (private and public) have not been built with the walker in mind.
  10. Pace of play is the key. Whether I’m walking or riding I enjoy playing with other like minded golfers. I can’t stand it when people have lengthy pre swing routines. Putting is one thing that doesn’t bother me. Take your time and line it up. I love playing by myself but it sucks when you are stuck in between 2 groups.
  11. I have both. In 2005 I got the Bushnell Pinseeker 1500 with slope. It was either that or the handheld sky caddie. I’m glad I went with the laser because technology changed every year with gps and the cost of the unit was part 1 and the subscription was part 2. The Bushnell changed a lot because I started really knowing exactly how far I was hitting it. Fast forward to 2014 I got a Bushnell GeoX gps watch. Radio Shack was selling them and I got a $100 gift card for Christmas. Front middle and back with no annual subscription. You had to register it online so it would update courses. But it was light and worked pretty well. Only problem is they stopped the updates for it and now if I go to a new course or if a course changed its name it’s useless. Low and behold my Bushnell stopped accurately shooting past 100 yards. I contacted Bushnell and they offered me 50% off a new rangefinder. I now use the Bushnell ProXE. That thing is awesome. Line of sight is still a problem but the buzzing, magnet, and red led are all major upgrades. Both have advantages and disadvantages. While the watch worked well when updated if I didn’t charge it enough or it didn’t recognize the course it was useless. The rangefinder is tough to beat. The Bushnell is accurate and I can use it anytime and anywhere.
  12. Everyone gets a cart. I’ve played with a 2,3 & 4 in my group. Fastest rounds of golf I’ve been able to play in years. With no raking, the bunkers have also become a real penalty if you go in the sand. When we let someone play through it takes little to no time before we tee off. This is a part of golf I hope stays. I’m playing mostly public courses.
  13. One would think they could do it remotely. I mean cmon it’s the driver test podcast.
  14. No ranges around us are open but I am loving the pace of play.
