  1. Congratulate the Following Testers Epic Max LS @DannyDips @ejgaudette Epic Speed @Siamese Moose @MaxEntropy The Epic Max LS was named My Golf Spy's Most Wanted Driver of 2021. Here's the chance for you to test, review and keep one of these drivers for yourself. This testing is open to US Residents only. Enter by Clicking the Signup button to the right.
  2. Did my first fitting and it ended up being a full bag (except putter). It was pretty amazing the effect different shafts had. Also, just had jumbo MCC +4 grips put on. Callaway Epic Max Titleist TSi2 3W Callaway Apex 3H Callaway Apex 21 4-A Mizuno T20 54/58 Odyssey Stroke Lab Ten Putter was from Callaway preowned and was a steal for what looks like a brand new putter.
  3. Been using a Callaway Hyperlite series bag for a while, hadn't bought a bag in about a decade before that and never gave that one much thought. Became curious when I noticed the exterior of the ball pocket had a velcro strip at the bottom, and apparently, it's so it can be removed and customized by one's home club? My questions are, does one's club just provide a replacement "cover," that gets zipped/velcroed into the bag in place of the original, or is it common for clubs to embroider their logos on to things like this, or do they stitch or iron on an existing transfer? And, if I have a custom logo (I don't belong to a country club but the group of guys I play with have an unofficial logo), is there someone people who know about such things have used in the past who either creates ball pocket exteriors, or embroiders things on them, or creates transfers that can be applied in some way to mine? cheers
  4. What kind of hesitations should I have if considering buying a Driver head with no Serial Number... Seller is listing it as a "prototype" and that's why there is no SA#. Its actual tour issue model ( one I just happened to be fitted for the other day) but this one doesn't have a serial number - does this mean it wasn't approved for tour use or should I be nervous about knock-off?! Also - would it be legal to use in tournaments?! Just happens to be the exact club head I was fitted for and selling for a price I could live with so I would want to take advantage of it's legit! Any thoughts?!
  5. I will start at the Top of the Bag and work my way down. Driver- I currently am using a Mavrik Sub Zero w/ Kinetixx Ballistic Shaft. I love this shaft, it has been my favorite shaft I have played although i would love to test out the Kinetixx Velocity shaft and the LAGolf shafts. The Mavrik I would have to say I am not totally in love with. It is not the most forgiving driver but when I center punch one it is the longest driver I have personally played.( Other than Long drive clubs). NO 3 WOOD For where I Live and where I play I use my 3 wood only about 1 or 2 times a year so I replaced it with a 2 iron. 2 IRON- Mizuno MP-20 HMB w/ Nippon TOUR 130 X stiff Shaft. I have a love/hate relationship with this club. I want to try and get a graphite shaft for it but as of now I have a steel shaft which in my Opinion makes it a little tougher to hit. When I hit it good it can be a great alternative to a 3 wood or a driver. I cant get it to about 250+ on solid contact and good conditions. I do struggle to consistently hit this club solid. This is partially the player and then also I believe I need a different shaft. This has great potential of being a driver replacement for tight fairways or dog legs. 3 IRON(UTILITY IRON)- COBRA King Utility iron w/ Kinetixx Ballistic 90G shaft. This is probably my favorite club in the top of my bag. This is an awesome fairway finder and other situations club. It is much more forgiving then my 2 iron and It feels and flies great. This is surprisingly workable and useful in the rough also. 4-PW Miura TC-201 w/ project X 7.0. I enjoy these irons. I bought these more so out of curiosity of what Miura's were like to play. I would say the TC-201 plays closer to a Blade than a cavity back which is what they take on the looks of. All I have ever heard is they are butter. So I wanted to see for myself. As much as I enjoy these clubs, they are not exactly what I thought they would be, they are butter at times but they are also hard to hit. My expectations were higher then the reality of them. That is not to say the don't feel great and play great. I would personally be open to selling these and testing out other irons, but I still enjoy playing these clubs and the looks of them don't hurt either. To Compare before this I had AP2's and I loved those clubs but the curiosity of what Muira's were like got to me and I had to try them. WEDGES- VOKEY SM8(50,56,60)-- I cannot say enough how much I enjoy playing vokey wedges. I personally will ever have a hard time changing to something else. I bought some taylormade hi-toes to try out and ended up selling them after 1 range session because I did not like the weight and the feel of them. I think vokeys are the best wedges you can get but there are some wedges I have not tried. PUTTER- 33' Scotty Cameron Newport 2.5, this is my favorite putter I have used. It feels soft off the face and feels heavy enough in my hands to give me confidence in my putting stroke. ACCESORIES Other things I have in my bag that I enjoy and the 2 tour towels from Legion Golf, Right now I use Asher gloves if I don't use those Taylor made makes a glove I like. I usually use Titleist prov1x balls. I have a precision pro NX9 which I enjoy using I am not sure if it is much of a con but the button on top is almost too easy to press but other than that it is very nice to use at a great price. I personally use a sun mountain pathfinder 4 push cart and I love using it. It makes walking much better than lugging clubs on your back and not having to pay for a cart or ride in a cart. I also buy Dormie workshop headcovers. High quality head covers but it comes in a little bit pricey for a headcover. I like the designs and things Dormie comes out with.
  6. My bag is somewhat of an amalgamation of clubs I have collected over time. I will get fitted for a new set of irons in a month or so, but until then I'll be running with these: Driver: Callaway Big Bertha (2014) Woods (3 & 5): TaylorMade V Steel Irons: Callaway X-20 4-SW (missing 9 iron) Misc Wedges: Cleveland RTX 588 2.0 (56); Titlest Vokey 250.08 (50) Putter: Odyssey White Hot #4 (still love this putter) Bag: Nike Miami Hurricanes (proud alum)
  7. One of the more popular iron categories of recent years. One company did very well in this, not surprisingly! https://mygolfspy.com/2021-most-wanted-players-distance-iron/
  8. Anyone subscribe to this? Wondering if that could help my dispersion. Thinking left dash or others, although everything else seems very soft for my swing. Suggestions?
  9. I decided to spring for two new wedges. I submitted my info to Callaway's online fitting and received recommendations for PM19 wedges in the two lofts I was considering: 54º and 58º Prices were good at CPO, plus I just received a mailing offering of a single use code for an additional 35% off on 1 order. The thing is: Callaway sent me two offers with different codes, they have my full name and my short name in their database. The discount as good before the codes, and even better after so, I went the Full Monty. I read MGS review of the wedges, kinda mixed, but generally favorable. Tony's chief criticism was the offset, which wasn't all that harsh; but it's not something that would make a world of difference to me, and could actually help me. Now that I've committed to them, I am interested in the opinions and thoughts of people who have actually played them. Tell me what you liked, didn't like, what you experienced; and let me know if you still play them, or had to get them out of your bag. I currently play Harry Taylor 350 wedges in those lofts, and I think they're great. But, it's been 4 years and I like to try different things after that amount of time. Share your experiences, please!
  10. Callaway Supersoft Magna golf ball is about 1/16 of an inch bigger and conforms to the rules of golf. Ball can't be smaller or heavier than certain metrics so a larger diameter that meets weight limits is perfectly legal. Has anyone tried them? Does anyone game them? Your thoughts? If we can avoid the automatic dismissal due to it being a 2 piece economy golf ball as already mentioned then we can focus on who this ball is for. I have found one on the course and it is a small difference in size. I play urethane balls for the greenside spin so this post is mostly out of curiosity.
  11. Hello everyone, I have been playing callaway chrome soft for quite some time. I have tried other balls here and there, such as pro v1, bridgestone e6 and tour 330, maxfli tour, and just recently the supersoft from callaway. This is from the time i started playing 5 years ago up until last weekend. I love the way the chrome soft feel on a well hit shot and it was ok on mishits. The supersoft was less erratic and i will find out this weekend more about the distance. Im not even remotely close to a scratch golfer, but i figure straighter is better and should result in lower scoring. Im hoping the supersoft keeps going straight and i dont lose too much distance and control around the greens. Anyone have any thoughts on this, or any experience?
  12. Went to a Callaway Demo Day yesterday looking for a 5-wood. Recently dropped my 3i to pick up an extra wedge and I don't love my GAPR Lo. Golf Galaxy has Epic Flash 5 woods for $200, so I figured I would use the fitting to see what shaft would make the most sense. The fitting, however, took a bit of a turn. Instead of the stiff-flex HZDRUS like my driver, I ended up in an X-flex Rogue White. Even stranger (to me) is that I was hitting the Mavrik SZ 4 wood off the deck as far as my 3 wood teed up and the Mavrik 5 wood was almost the same distance but with a higher flight and more spin, neither of which I need. I *love* my 3 wood off the tee, but it's such a deep face, I really can't hit it off the deck. So now I'm in a bit of a conundrum: drop the 3 wood and game a Mavrik SZ 4 wood, but keep the GAPR? Or keep the 3w but get the Epic Flash SZ 5w and loft up? (If it helps, clubhead speed for the 16.5* 4w was right at 100mph at 12.1 launch with ~3200 spin. And I get a 20% discount if I order through my club in addition to having $85 in my credit account.)
  13. Hope you enjoy this setup as much as I've enjoyed looking at some of yours - Cheers MGS! I'll start off with saying this is the first set of irons I've owned that aren't Mizuno and the first wedges that aren't Cleveland. I picked up the game about 15 years ago after I graduated college - finding a great set of Mizuno T-Zoids, GBB 4-wood, Driver, Cleveland wedges, and an old 1969 Ping hotdog putter at a garage sale for $20 with bag (I have all these clubs still - maybe I'll do a WITB with this set too). The lady that sold it to me told me that her husband just bought all new stuff and didn't need it anymore but he didn't know she was selling it. I have to assume he's never let her forget that - assuming he let her live. Fast forward 12 years through several used sets of Mizuno Irons, Celeveland wedges and revisions on all of these clubs I'm feeling great with every club in here, but feeling odd without the Mizuno irons in there. Long story short - Mixed bag, mixed feelings. I acquired the set of PXG's over the winter at a local shop for $400 and figured I couldn't pass them up. I did a shaft fitting and wow that makes all the difference. Right now the DG120S fit my game perfectly. Last year I went to a demo days, expecting to move from Cleveland to Callaway wedges (love the look), and somehow, after hours of hitting wedges walked away with Mizuno JPX919's. Still shocked because I had never considered Mizuno wedges, it was definitely not a brand name purchase - they were just the best for my swing. Same story with the Exotics 3W. Was expecting to walk away with a Rogue - but feel, sound, and launch monitor all agreed - Exoitcs it was. I stumbled into the Rogue driver after I got fit for the Epic a few years ago and had massive quality issues with it. Four Epic's later and one exploded crown, they sent me a Rogue and it's been fantastic. I think the most interesting club in my bag is my putter. I picked this up a few years into the game and haven't found better. I moved to the Spider last year and part of this year but had to come back to my Bobby Grace and it felt like coming home. I own 6 Bobby Grace putters, but the M5K-GT is the go to. Why Bobby Grace? I'm not sure... but it's been my thing. As a side note, I've always played Bridgestone balls, but this year decided to dedicate a year to ProV1 - it just seemed like I should probably play at least one season with the most popular ball in golf. I've been happy so far but am dying to give this years Bridgeys a couple rounds, too.

  15. Actually did a video of what's in my bag for 2020. I'm a team Callaway supporter all the way. I break down not only the clubs in my bag but also what accessories I have as well. https://youtu.be/a8PTyUVbPPE
  16. Hey Crew, Long time forum reader, first time poster, forgive me if I ramble. Excited to talk golf! 2020 is the year I decided to step outside my comfort zone. I had struggled for years with the common inner struggle of “Am I good enough to hit ‘players’ irons?”. After hitting a Callaway X Forged ‘18 7 iron at my local G.T. I was in love. The smile that hitting the middle of that club put on my face was something I had never experienced in golf. I was addicted, but they weren’t ‘meant’ for me (18 hcp at the time). After a few more visits, a few more hits, I decided if they weren’t meant for me, I had better improve, I needed these clubs in my life! 2 months in, 32 rounds down, couldn’t be happier with my decision. When I put a good swing on the ball I get good results, bad swing, bad results *BUT* I know exactly where I mishit it. As for my driver, what a story... Last year I purchased a Callaway Fusion Driver second hand. Liked it, but didn’t LOVE it. Distance was ok, sound wasn’t my jam. About half way through the season I took my honey out for her first round of golf. 3 Holes in, after assuring her “Don’t worry babe, you won’t hurt my clubs”, she tees off, something doesn’t sound right.... I inspect my driver to find a crack in the top crown. So, it sat in a closet for the rest of the year, assuming there was nothing Callaway would do, as I purchased it second hand. Before throwing it out this year I decided, what’s the harm in asking them. I called Callaway customer service, was completely honest about where I purchased it and what happened. They confirmed there was no warranty BUT they are happy to keep me as a customer and instructed me to pick a shaft from their stock offerings as they would send me an Epic Flash..... Jaw dropped....Stunned. This driver is mind blowing, I have never had confidence off the tee with Driver. I’m consistently 10-20 yds further and much more accurate. (See photo below, My drive on a 310 yd Par 4 - Dogleg Left - Bunker on Right side of green. Thread the needle and putting for eagle!) Everyone always says “it’s not the club”. While I agree to an extent, everyone of my friends that has hit this club has gotten consistently better results than their own driver. A few stating they hit their longest drive ever with it. A few searching for deals to purchase their own. I was so happy with Callaway’s service and product I filled out the bag with the following: Callaway Epic Flash 9 deg. Kuro Kage TiNi Silver 70g Callaway Epic Flash 5W Project X Hzrdus Smoke 70g Callaway X-Forged ‘18 3-PW KBS Tour 90 Callaway Forged 52-56 DG S300 Callaway Forged 60 DG S400 Scotty Cameron Kombi S
  17. Hey all, for my first post I have a question. I bought my first clubs almost 10 years ago at a pawn shop. A year or two later I won a graphite shaft from this site, so I bought a driver head off of eBay (Callaway RAZR Fit Xtreme). I didn't know any better to look up club testing so I went ahead and got it assembled at a local golf shop. It never felt great, but it worked pretty well and I would get the occasional 300+ yard drive. Recently though I have completely taken it out of the bag. I can barely hit the thing 200 yards now. Is it just dead? I would imagine that happens to all clubs at some point but I honestly don't know. Thanks!
  18. What do you guys think about this 2 on 2 match they just announced? Sent from my SM-N970U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  19. I picked up a box of these for $20 in an East Texas pro shop while on the road this weekend. I couldn't help myself because this was my favorite ball back when I was a junior. There was something about the name and the red-orange Callaway logo and Warbird emblazened on the cover that drew me to them then. Of course back then I needed the distance, and now I prefer something with a little more feel and workability. But I played a round with them for nostalgia sake, and I have to say I was a little disappointed. For the lack of spin I figured I might pick up a little more yardage but I couldn't tell much difference in the category. For those of you that used to hit this back in the day, am I just recalling the find memories of jr golf or was this ball never all that special. These certainly feel like the $20 I paid for them, which I suppose is the anticlimactic answer, I just hoped for a little more. Sent from my SM-G973U using MyGolfSpy mobile app

  21. With divided bags being of countless variations, what do you all prefer? I have a mizuno Aerolite micro bag that i have been using for about 4 years. I would like to get a new 14 way bag because I am a meticulous person. But I figured I would ask since there is nothing else better to do with this quarantine.

  23. Seeing heavy marketing for the 2nd gen CBX wedges from cleveland. Many other manufacturers have come out with models similar to these. I just don't see the cavity on a wedge doing much. Anyone have cavity back wedges or has given them a try? Are they worth the hype?
