  1. Right, you are kind of touching on my point ( probably could have been clearer on my end) that the fitter is focusing on improvement and finding the best combination for a person. Sometimes it's their current combo, sometimes it's not. My point is that a good fitter wants to find you whatever you hit best, however some fitters will absolutely push a person into something new regardless of if it performs better. I can only really speak for myself but I have experienced free fittings push for sales while paid fittings are more concerned with what works best for you and are perfectly ok with you walking away with nothing. I don't think fitting people for free based on the motivation of increasing store sales ( as adam was pushing) is really a good thing.
  2. Even MGS own 2021 fitting survey results the number 1 reason people didn't get fitted was they didn't believe it would benefit their game. TXG is educating people on the benefits of fitting through their youtube channel. If anything, education is the issue, and even if it was free, if people don't see the benefit, they won't try it regardless of cost. Additionally cost didn't rank in the top 5 of ways people voted that fittings could be improved. I think cost is way less prohibitive than Adam is leading on and MGS own vote shows that. I also don't think quality fitters are looking to sell a new driver to the same guy every year. I think they take pride in fitting someone so well to something they don't comeback to buy another one next year, but they tell their friends who then come and get fit by the same guy. Last, really wish Adam would have let Ryan speak. This was really hard to watch and definitely didn't sit too well with me. You have a guy who represents a business that shows people the benefits of fitting and has probably led a lot of people to get fit yet he can't get a word in because Adam keeps beating on about "that one time my free fitting idea brought in more sales". Really disappointing.
  3. My Sim OG cracked this year and I received a new one from Taylormade through warranties. It took 1-2 months this spring but I was allowed to keep my cracked sim until the new one came in. I don't think there is any decline in customer service, I simply think given the current market conditions it's pretty tough for any brand to get you a new driver quickly outside of telling the store to replenish. I dont think that really has anything to do with their customer service as it sounds like Taylormade was willing to take care of you both times.
  4. I thought their size guide was pretty good. I thought it was super useful to have the waist measurements. I am 6'2 and 225 and I wear the large size. Fit is certainly slimmer than other companies but I found their shirts to be extremely light, durable, and stretchy. I do think they are a touch shorter than desired but I have never had tucking issues
  5. Typically I see them on EBay, however I would highly recommend going to google, and trying their "shopping search". I use this alot when I am looking for specific items that are seemingly hard to find. I just checked today and seems like PGA superstore and dicks have some in 10.5 available
  6. I remember last season seeing a ton of 360s for sale at steep discounts. It could be that adidas is trying to push people more into the ZG1. As far a supply, golf was huge last season so it's likely that a lot of new golfers bought 360s on discount or golfers getting back into golf did. I have still seen quite a few of the tour 360 XTs around in 10.5.
  7. i wear the adidas 365 fall weight pants. Not to slim not too wide and keep my legs reasonably warm.
  8. I was looking at my trail running shoes compared to my spikeless golf shoes and I think the big difference is nub size and distribution. Golf shoes seem to have a larger density of smaller spikes while my trail runners have a smaller density of big spikes. I imagine from a weight distribution standpoint on a soft green the trail runners would probably dig in a bit more than the golf shoes
  9. I think the key is stability. Golf shoes provide way more lateral stability than trail runners in my experience
  10. I have the footjoy SLs and I would say they are good for about 3-4 seasons. It's really dependent on how you treat them. I know some guys who wear them back and forth to the course and walk a lot of cart paths with them and they typically get around 2 seasons.
  11. Mine broke about a week ago, I kind of wish I would have gone directly through taylormade for the new head rather than where I bought it.
  12. As others have said, the lack of consequences and perfect lies on every shot really make it extremely easy to feel like a pro on the range. Even when I manage to hit a few fairways during the round my like is rarely perfect with uphill, down hill, and sidehill lies. There is also probably a confidence aspect as well. Once you lose that confidence after a few bad shots where you can't find the middle, it can be a rough round.
  13. I would guess alot of guys havent had a chance or reason to try it due to the Prov1
  14. 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
  15. I think many would possibly move to bridgestone as well especially due to the quality control
  16. 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 accuracy or have more trees, then it makes sense to go for accuracy. In general you can never go wrong with hitting the ball more accurately. However I have always gone with the idea of taking the longest carrying driver I felt I could control
  17. 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
  18. 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.
  19. I really like the footjoy fury. They are one of my most comfortable spiked shoes and I highly recommend them
  20. 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
  21. Footjoy has some on their website specifically for humid weather
  22. 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.
  23. I sent a 3 wood back to ping that had the face caved in and it took about 2 months to get it back
  24. 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.
  25. 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
