  1. Got out for a quick 9 with my brother after work yesterday. It was kind of a last-minute plan, and I had a meeting run long, so I didn't have time for any warmup. Then, just to mix it up for fun since we play this course all the time we decided to play from the tips, which we've never done. And boy was it an ugly round... While I did have a handful of good shots (including a 3W approach that went further than my drive on the previous shot), it felt like all of my game was poor. I was struggling to find the center of the face on my driver, my proximity to the hole on chips was terrib
  2. Congrats all - and great to see a bunch of new testers getting involved!
  3. This is a really cool testing opportunity - exciting to see the results on this one!
  4. I do think that sometimes folks can place too high an importance on hitting the fairway - as long as you're not taking penalties or being forced to punch out a driver off the tee is nearly always the best play for mid to high handicap golfers. I'll take 140 from the pin out of the rough over 180 from the pin in the fairway any day.
  5. Last time I said my picks would fail and I was right - so this time I’m guaranteeing the win!
  6. Just don't pull a Charles Barkley trying to add that pause at the top of your swing!
  7. Quick driving range session at lunch today. It’s easy to see why my 52* is my favorite club in the bag - this is from 5 consecutive shots (one of them was a low-flighted spinner off the bottom groove, the others were all identical): Unfortunately the longer my irons get, the further out towards the toe I tend to make contact. Something to keep working on I guess, here’s my 9 iron:
  8. He brought it in to get a new grip and it got damaged in the shop
  9. I picked up the same hat for the CCC5. Our wardrobes are becoming disturbingly similar..... At least you never have to worry about me wearing a Bruins shirt
  10. I'll echo what others have said - with the Link I leave my phone in the bag entirely. I've been keeping score on a paper scorecard (strokes, putts, penalties) as a backup, and you can use the button on the Link to set the pin location on the green so you don't have to remember that. So at the end of the round I just have to double check the number of putts on each hole, add penalties where necessary, and maybe edit a few shots (like change what Arccos thought was a putt to a chip if it was from off the green).
  11. My current setup is a 52-58 combo of Cleveland CBX wedges, which didn't have much in the way of bounce and grind options in the first generation, so club choice is a matter of distance relative to the green. 105-75 I'll use the 52, from 75-25 I'll use the 58, and when I'm inside of 25 yards I prefer to use the 52 (unless I'm short-sided and need to come in steeper). For my CCC5 Snakebite wedges I went with the classic grind in the 52 (12° of bounce) since I want to be able to comfortably take a full swing with it. In the 58 I went with the versatile grind (8° of bounce) which gives me eno
  12. I have also had no issues with the Link - the all-black version looks extra sweet too for people who are on the fence. Does Arccos have a GPS-only mode for the watch that doesn't track shots if you're using the Link?
  13. The most likely thing they wouldn’t have would be grips, but I think all of us listed at least two alternate grips, so even though we haven’t heard anything we might not be getting our first choice. I also listed alternate shafts for a few clubs as well.
  14. Man am I excited to get my hands on the XB! What shaft did you go with?
