  1. The GolfPride Microsuede is my choice. I used to play the Tour Wrap 2G, but they can get a bit slick when it's damp. The Microsuede is basically a scuffed up 2G...same soft feel, but better traction when it's damp. Not as good as a corded grip in the rain, but with rain gloves, it's fine.
  2. A free fitting at the local box superstore or mega-golf store may not be performed by a competent club fitter. Do your research and go to a respected fitter that's been in business for many years...and be willing to pay for the service.
  3. I live in the Northeast and will spend up to $250 guest fee at a high-end course, but normally that's "corporate golf" with a business associate. If it's a once in a lifetime opportunity to play St. Andrews with your son or dad, crack open your wallet. It's the experience and the memories that matter. Don't go cheap.
  4. I'd add a lefty 7-iron to get out of tight spots when I don't have a play with my right handed clubs.
  5. I'd be interested to see how Maxfli Tour X compares to Pro V1x and TP5x Paying $60 for two dozen seems like a great deal.
  6. I'm old school and prefer yardage books. Then I pace from fairway yardage markers. It works. You'll never run out of batteries or suffer technical difficulties with a yardage book. I also prefer to walk the course with a cigar versus riding in a cart with a speaker playing country music. And my cell phone stays in the car, never on the course.
  7. My two best training aids 1. Alignment stick - when the snow in my driveway melts, I use one of the driveway marker reflector sticks as an alignment aid on the range. 2. Two pennies. Place on on either side of the ball on the putting green. When looking over the ball, one should see equal amounts of each penny. Then you know your eye is centered directly above the ball.
  8. Mark Reynolds - Massachusetts Have a Bushnell rangefinder. Would like to compare with SkyCaddie LX5. Also use yardage book and course markers. Play 6-7 days week at many different courses. A GPS watch would be very useful vs taking out my rangefinder. Having a picture of individual holes would be terrific. Please consider to be a tester. Playing lots of different courses would provide excellent feedback.
