  1. Ladies and Gents, I am interested in purchasing a putting mat for indoor practice mostly. I am curious if the Birdie Ball mats perform well on Tile floors or do all the joints in the individual tiles cause issues. Of course any other points, good or otherwise anyone has to offer is appreciated. TIA Ricky
  2. A few months ago I ordered a set of the Arccos club tags along with the GPS unit as a package. Shortly after that I received an email that they were back ordered and would be shipped in the order ordered, expected delivery was August/Sept time frame. Then got an email that they had started shipping the units. A couple of weeks ago, got another email that there was a "manufacturing" issue and would be further delayed. What I cannot understand is WHY they are still offering the product for sale, knowing full well they cannot fulfill those orders in the near future. It is maddening, plus my
  3. Ricky Palm Coast, Florida Normally, I have access to turf, but I have been looking into a mat to get better use of practice time, even if I only have 15-20 minutes. Better than wasting the time driving to the course. I had one made of astro turf about 10 years ago, it turned into a walking path. First choice of speed would be slow, but I would be pleased to try anyone of them.
  4. If you truly want to get the most for your money, I would look for a Club Champion or Tru Spec. They will have the most options as far as shaft selections/club heads. GolfTec only has three or four different club manufacturers and only the shafts that are offered as OEM for those clubs. While I like supporting my local pro, if they don't have a monitor or even better an indoor bay, you are really not giving yourself the best options for clubs/shaft combos available to you. As an outlier, I would also take a look at some of the Direct to Consumer companies, especially Sub70, they do
  5. The first couple of trips to the range were not impressive, but I had reverted to some of the swing issues I had before the fitting. It is a different animal being outdoors and not on a launch monitor. The last two weeks have shown what the TPT shafts are capable of if they are the right fit. When I swing correctly and don't try to "grip it and rip it", I am realizing about 25-30 yards distance gained and a much better dispersal pattern and the ball flight is exactly what I want. Even the instructor went....."Damn"!! the other day during a playing lesson. The cool thing is that even

  7. So I spend a lot of time in Hong Kong, and take lessons from the GolfTe facility there. I wanted to get fitted for a new driver shaft for my Epic Flash Sub Zero. Tried all they had, but the instructor recommended another facility that carried a wide range of shafts. Tested the Ventus, Tour ADT, Project X, with some decent results. Then the fitter asked me to try one more, it was a TPT red series. The results were amazing, I was "in love", hit two series the Hi and the Low version of the TPT 18. The Lo got the most distance, with very good dispersion, the high was about 2-3 yards less on
  8. Hello, Current HDCP 16.7, North Florida Callaway Rogue X 8 iron distance, 164 Sub 70 is a DTC company based in Sycamore, IL. They prefer to have clients come and get fitted in their facility if possible, but provide very personalize service to get the right club in the golfers hands. The irons are the leader of the product line, but also carry hybrids and Driver series. All of the clubs are assembled by hand to match the specs of each client with a short turn around time. Also if you call , there is a good chance you will interact with the CEO in making your purc
  9. I played the RXS for a couple of years and it was fine. Then 2 years ago or so, started playing the E6 Speed, (which at the rate I was drowning them at the time) I really liked and its now been discontinued, so I am looking to get back to the B series. I just sent my data to Bridgestone to see what they recommend. I agree it would be nice to not have to buy a dozen just to try a couple of different balls. I will admit that overall I have been very pleased with the Bridgestone brand.
  10. Greetings! Been doing the physical distancing thing from Northeast Florida, and until last week was able to play golf locally. The course manager told me they closed because the golfers wouldn't didn't respect the rules they established to protect the employees. Oh well, will search the local area and see if I can find an open course. Been playing the better part of 50 years, sometimes a lot, sometimes almost never, depended on work, etc. Share time between Hong Kong and Florida. Lived in China for about 8 years, it was a life changing (for the better) experience. I fly air
