  1. Thank all of you for your input. It has been quite accurate. I have replaced it with a M6 head because i have multiple shafts with the TM shaft adapter. Cheers
  2. Has anyone experienced a situation where a TaylorMade M4 Driver Head Cracked? Yesterday i was on the range before a round of golf with a buddy and i noticed my M4 head had a 2 in. crack horizontally across the middle of the face all of a sudden. It was brand new when i got it and only started using it about 18 mos ago. Any thoughts? Thanks
  3. If i am playing in a tournament, i spin my golf balls with Check-n-Go and always add my own marks that i focus on when putting. If i am just playing a casual round i do not use the balls i spin check and i use the marks already present on the ball, whether it be a manufacturers alignment, logo, mfg name , etc. This is just my personal process and i'd have to say, i do seem to sink more putts in tournaments than others in my group regardless of putt distance.
  4. 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
  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).
