  1. I would guess alot of guys havent had a chance or reason to try it due to the Prov1
  2. My typical shape off the tee is a draw that became a hook. Part of the goal was gain more control over the hook. When I tried the mavrik SZ I was hitting long shots, but my groupings were bad. Long ropy hooks and blocks were mainly what I was getting. The SIM was shorter in carry, but the ball generally didn't curve too much from my start line. As someone who already has good length, hitting the ball 20 yards straighter is bigger than 5-10 yards farther
  3. I think many would possibly move to bridgestone as well especially due to the quality control
  4. I went for the longest club I felt I could control. I went for a fitting and tested the sim and Mavrik SZ and the Mavrik was longer by about 10 yards carry, however I couldn't control it. The Sim was longer than my current gamer, but more accurate than the mavrik, so I went with the Sim. It's really up to the user if they are looking for yards or accuracy. It also depends on what type of courses you are playing. If they are mostly wide open then distance might be the way to go, then you carry a go to 3 wood for when you need to find the fairway. On the flipside if you play courses that require
  5. Yup, Had my ping g410 3 wood face cave in. Sent it back for repair and they replaced it. Took about 6-8 weeks. I was told they had a huge backlog as well as they had delays getting the shaft. I also changed shafts on my irons this year and it took about 2 weeks as they had issues getting the PX 6.0 shafts. Took about 2 weeks for the shafts to come in
  6. All parts of the supply chain were hit pretty hard. So the big companies were hit, but so were the small companies that supply them components. Additionally I have heard with golf being pretty much the only game in town sales this year have been crazy. So that combined with the fact most club manufacturers started producing clubs in a massive production hole has led to extended lead times.
  7. I really like the footjoy fury. They are one of my most comfortable spiked shoes and I highly recommend them
  8. They replaced a G410 3 wood I bought due to the face caving in after a few months use. Considering they still replaced the failure even though it wasn't bought through a big box store, I think that's really good service. Unfortunately due to Covid, their replacement times have been fairly long. Mine took 6 weeks to be replaced. Cannot speak to their terms but I was happy with my experience
  9. Footjoy has some on their website specifically for humid weather
  10. I still like white. I used to go yellow, but still found it hard to see in the leaves. I find yellow balls to be best for grey days to see them against a white sky but also early spring golf where the ground is pretty bare, yet the sky is still fairly cloudy. I really have yet to find any color that is a stand out in the easy to see category when it comes to leaves.
  11. I sent a 3 wood back to ping that had the face caved in and it took about 2 months to get it back
  12. I agree with those that suggested the kirklands. Hard to beat for the price and still a great performer at almost any level. I would also recommend the titleist toursoft. I first broke 100 with an NXT tour and that is the new equivalent. Its a good performer and you get titleist quality so you don't have to worry about bad balls. I get most of my balls from lostgolfballs so they cost me almost nothing whether that's prov1 or tour softs.
  13. I have alot of golf shirts, but I bought some 32degrees golf shirts and man they are great. Never had a shirt that felt so weightless and had a nice slim fit. Especially super good considering they are only $11.99
  14. Exactly I think if we start punishing one group, we are just going to give an advantage to a different type of golfer or different group. I thought the cool thing about golf was allowing people to use their unique advantages to play the course how they think best to score as low as possible.I hate the idea of telling players that have power or worked hard to gain power, that its too big of an advantage. We'd never tell one of the master class iron players that "oh you are too accurate, time we do something about that" why do the same to guys who hit it long and use that to combat some of
  15. I have played the tour BX all year and its a great ball. I need spin reduction off the tee and it performs as good as any other X tour ball out there. What I did find is that even though it was firmer in the short game feel, I could still spin the ball as much as I needed. I am a high spin player so a little bit of spin reduction is actually helpful in my game. Even with 6 year old wedges I am still getting great drop and stop performance and plenty of check on pitches. I did not notice any difference in length with my irons
