  1. Why don’t they just make PGA pros use a actual wood’s and let amateurs use metal woods. Distance solved.
  2. Christopher Ipad or iPhone 11 and Hudl Technique. I am a HS football, soccer, and golf coach. We have a video system that we can use with it. Bradenton (Tampa area) outdoors no net. Sometimes over water.
  3. why do you want a heavier shaft for a 3 wood
  4. I’m recently out of a driver fitting. I am looking for a new 3 wood and I wanted to know if the shaft I got fitted in my driver has any carryover to my 3 wood. I really learned a lot in the fitting but I’m not looking to pay for another golftec session for a 3 wood. Driver shaft is a Green Hzdrus Smoke 70x
  5. The edge irons are the crazy uncle from a looks standpoint. The back of the irons just doesn’t fit the looks of the other offerings from Hogan. They look like the Callaway X-14 irons.
  6. The black finish does 2 things. 1) it frames the ball nicely. The contrast was a welcome benefit and I play a yellow ball and to me it stands out more than the chrome finish. 2) I keep my clubs clean and after contact there is a slight ball mark after contact that I can see where I’m hitting the ball on the face. I’ve grown very used to checking after each shot. Ben Hogan says there process to make the irons black is different than others. Whether that’s true or not I don’t know. My grooves have remained sharp and it has taken at least one golf season to see a visible contact pattern. I’m a high ball hitter and I get some serious height with these irons. The PTX pro are easily the more forgiving. A guy I play with has the Fort Worth irons and he can work the ball and hits all the shots high, low, draw, and fade. I love the way they look in the bag. It does nothing for performance but they look sweet. My previous irons were TaylorMade TP mc.
  7. I didn’t believe it at first and the fitter was pretty cool about it. He said let’s spec up some other drivers and then come back to the sim. We did and by the time I came back to the SIM I was tired but I was still putting up similar numbers to the first time I hit it. If I realize 20 yards in on course conditions I will be more than happy.
  8. I’m blessed to be in Florida. There are 2 golftec’s next to me. One is in a stand-alone building and the other is in the Golf Galaxy. I went to the one inside golf galaxy. Same exit opposite sides of the freeway.
  9. I just had a driver fitting at golftec. The SZ was one of the drivers I tested. It felt great when I swung it. I didn’t hit it as well as the SIM. I just got better numbers and I tried 2 different shafts on the cobra. I would have been happy either way. The SZ looked great and the milled face left a noticeable ball imprint. It was cool because I could tell after each hit where I was making contact on the face. It also sounded great. I’m not recommending either driver for you. I would recommend you getting a fitting.
  10. I made a choice to pay for a fitting to get a legit experience. I didn’t want to be sold anything. I first wanted to see if I could get my M2 dialed in and test it against anything new. I tested 3 SIM drivers, cobra, and Callaway. The session was booked for 1 1/2 hours and we only needed about 45 min after he got my numbers in. They tried hard to sell me on a lesson plan but I got what I needed and went to TaylorMade and purchased a driver. The golftec was inside a golf galaxy. I knew I was going to buy a driver if the numbers stated it but I was hoping that the old driver could be dialed in. The back-spin was the thing that was most shocking. We couldn’t get that down on the M2 and there has to be something to the twist face. I had a good experience. I would recommend it and while I had to spend money on just a fitting in my mind having the data was nice to get without having that feeling that I was getting sold something. I was able to just say look at my numbers and go put something together.
  11. I just got fit for a new driver. After about 45 min to an hour the results came back the fitter put me in an 8° SIM and then lofted me up to 9° driver in a neutral setting. Why wouldn’t he just put me in a 9° version?
  12. I hate to admit it but I am close to getting one of these as well. If anybody has one I would love to hear your thoughts. Is it worth it and what do your bad days look like compared to your good ones. I don’t feel like I’m replicating what I’m doing when I get on the course compared to when I’m in a hitting bay. I would like something that I could use on a range.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. hellrung do you still use the orange whip? I’d love to know if it’s stood the test of time.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
