  1. Hello Fellow MGS's I asked the question because for me it seems to make a difference when putting. If i am playing in any tournament, local club or city or regional, i spin and mark each ball i use and always use these alignment marks when putting. Also these dynamic spin alignment marks rarely align with the manufacturers alignment marks. I only use tour grade model golf balls (Pro-V1/X; B330/Tour B; Chrome Soft/X & TP5/X). Yes, i totally agree that the batteries must be fresh. And as far as the effect when using the driver, i don't worry about it because i am not consistent enough to notice because so many other factors are involved. I was just curious what others experienced Thanks for all your comments. Hit'em Long & Straight
  2. I do have an iPad but an android phone. I would be extremely interested in being a tester for the Rapsodo MLM as I have used an old tempo trainer for many years until the Swing Caddie SC200 came out. Purchased the SC200 Portable Launch Monitor due to the launch capability and the works in a net capability but after several months of working with their support team including many pictures and a replacement unit it never did work as advertised in a net (tried 2 different nets, mine plus a friends cube net which had more room) and it did not measure any launch so I was extremely disappointed. In fact just 2 weeks ago I went through a driver setup optimization session at a local facility (Pruneridge Golf) with a local teaching pro using Flightscope because I wanted to optimize the 2 drivers I have. It was a fascinating session using a Callaway X2 Hot 9* head with an Aldila VS Proto by you 70-S shaft and a Taylormade M4 10.5* head with a UST Mamiya Proforce V2 yellow 6F4 shaft. Both shafts were PURED, stiff flex, less than 3.0* torque and both shafts had adjustable shaft adapters. In summary, we collected a bunch of data, smash factor was good (~1.40) but spin rate was too high (in low-mid 3000’s) will make a few tweaks and plan to have session #2 in about a month.
  3. Congrats testers, i am very interested in seeing your results. Have Fun.
  4. I used to play Maxfli's before the Titleist pro V1 & X's came out, would like to try them again. Now i play only tour grade balls (titleist pro v1/x, bridgestone tour B/s, callaway chrome soft/x & taylormade tp5/x) but a year or 2 out of date to get a better price point at their performance level. I now play a 27 hole layout with a mid to low 130's slope and 24 of 27 holes have some forced carry so i should know pretty quickly. I am currently just under a 12 handicap and trying to play more to get back under a 10.
  5. To answer the other questions: --i have tried the quick cure epoxy as well as the 24 hr version but never used the driver in less than 48hrs. --These have been new shaft installations so no old epoxy to deal with and yes i have prepped it according to spec.
  6. I do not know, how can you tell without taking it completely apart?
  7. Hello MGS Guys, Has there ever been a test of golf ball performance with and without the use of Check-Go? --On driving accuracy? --On putting accuracy? thanks
  8. Hello MGS Guys, The shaft on my driver(s) seem to pullout of the hosel slightly after use. It comes out somewhere between 1/8" to 1/4" over various periods of time (from a coupe of weeks to a year and has occurred on multiple drivers). I have used different manufacturers of epoxy but it still happens. This occurs between the ferrule and hosel or ferrule and shaft adapter. I have been tinkering with drivers and shafts for more than 15 years. Any advice on what the cause is? Any advice on easy way to fix it? All ideas are appreciated. Thanks

  11. Hello Everyone, 1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? >>> Off and On since I was 16 being in the NorthEast, then came west to CA after undergrad and started playing a bunch more. Currently a 12.0 index due to injury and lack of playing but was a 7.4 – 9.5 index for 17 years. I shoot anywhere from a 75 to a 95 but typically from high 70's to mid 80's. I like challenging courses therefore primarily play courses with slopes of 130 and up. 2. What do you love about golf? >>> the scenery, the people you meet, the challenge of playing different shots & courses and the disconnect from the hustle and bustle of the average workweek. 3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? >>> Interest in many of your articles and honest reviews. Looking for anything that will improve my game when I can play. I do not know other spies. 4. Where are you from? What is your home course? >>> I am in the San Jose, CA area, home course is Cinnabar Hills, it used to be De Laveaga for years. 5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? >>> Best is the variety and challenge of courses from the ocean to the mountains. Worst is the cost and fact many courses are disappearing in the area. 6. What do you do for a living? >>>Business guy in high-tech (former engineer turned product marketing and business development) 7. How’d you pick your user name? >>> made sense based on my last name and interest. In summary, my only claim to fame is how low my handicap is for how little i play. I think i can attribute that to my short game and learning how to play a low bounce wedge (56* 10* bounce).
