  1. Have been going through a complete overhaul of my bag the last 2 seasons. Have upgraded Driver, 3 wood (both Cobra) irons just this year with some custom fit M5s now looking to upgrade wedges and putters Im about a 13 handicap. But have been always been a better than average putter. Looking for a new Blade style putter. Read the recent testing review article but just wanted to see if anyone had any personal recommendations or feed back. Wedges I am open to anything although I have been playing with a 56 and 60 degree last few years. Thanks for reading and look forward to hearing what you guys have to say.
  2. Cleveland Srixon #FitLikeAPro: 6 Month Report My journey to better began last November during the MyGolfSpy #FitLikeaPro Cleveland/Srixon experience at their headquarters in Huntington Beach, California. It was a whirlwind adventure over 2 days that involved full bag fittings, a tour of HQ, sit down dinners with all the people in the know from marketing to R&D and a few quality holes of golf. Yes, it's been 6 months since I visited California, but I didn't want to rush back and write something without putting legit playing time on these while still drunk on the Srixon koolaid. I did that after the TaylorMade #LoftUp trip to the Kingdom and learned my lesson, that driver and I were so such a mismatch it was straight up commical. I've already taken a lot of flak and jabs (jokingly I hope) from buddies who see my social media and say I've become a part of the Srixon axis of evil hive collective taking over the internet, or I've been brainwashed by my free trip, but that's just not true and I can speak to that on two levels. First, I went to Cleveland/Srixon, so as MGS staffer I'm the guy with first hand knowledge of the product. If I had gone to PING, Callaway, or TaylorMade my social media and forum voice would be the same because that's the product I can actually attest to. Secondly, and this one's important: Cleveland/Srixon products flat out perform and I'll get into that more in-depth as we go on. When I arrived in Cali I was met by Eli Miller (Marketing Communications Manager) at the airport and whisked off to a little Mexican joint, there we hooked up with the rest of the MGSers and Noelle Zavaleta (Marketing Communications Associate). This was a non pretentious lunch and set the tone early as to who Cleveland/Srixon are: a company run by real everyday people just like you and me, who just want to tell you their story. Nothing about it felt forced or staged, they come across as genuine. The fitting experience was great. I spent the majority of it hanging out with Cleveland/Srixon marketing and PR gurus Eli and Noelle where I learned all the great details of the 2017 Z series lineup. I also learned that their staff are extremely​ knowledgeable and golf experienced outside their title roles as Eli fit me through the entire bag. So now 6 months removed from my tryst in Huntington Beach, the honeymoon is over and I feel I'm finally in a good place to speak to the product. I've got 2 solid months of golf in, which have started their typical way as they seem to annually for me. Month one my ball striking is lights out, can't miss a shot and short game is meh. Month two is a complete reversal where I'm between my old swing and new, but my short game is lights out and I'm still shooting around par. But all this is good, why? Because I can speak to how each product affects or helps my game during inconsistent struggles and when it's on. So with that said let's take a look at Cleveland/Srixons 2017 lineup with what's in my bag. Driver Srixon Z565 10.5* with Miyazaki Kaula Mizu 7 73g Stiff shaft My impressions going into this was that Srixon is an iron and ball company and that drivers (woods) were just a product sku to fill out a full bag listing; I couldn't have been more wrong. The driver may actually be the shining star of the whole 2017 Srixon lineup, but don't just take it from me, there's a reason MyGolfSpy named the Z565 the 2017 Most Wanted driver and the Z765 rounded out the top 5 and I'll say it again--they flat out perform. 2017 Srixon drivers are powered by 3 new key technologies: a power wave sole, stretch flex cup face and lightweight crown.. Well R&D must be onto something because I've been not only smashing the cores out of balls, but hitting a lot of fairways at the same time. The unsung hero though might be the stock shaft offerings with 2017 Srixon drivers - the Miyazaki Kaula line. Here it pays to own a high end shaft company as Srixon do and because of this they can offer the Kaula to golfers in 4 profiles and 32 different configurations to find the best fit for each player. Kaula models consist of: KIRI - for players who need to increase distance with a higher launch. MIZU - mid launch mid spin fitting a wide range of players who want maximum distance and control. MIZORE - high-speed players who prefer a low-mid trajectory with low spin. KORI - high-speed players who prefer a penetrating launch with low spin. OK enough tech talk... The Z565 has been as long as anything for me and it it's finding fairways. I think that speaks to its workability as much as the tech that keeps it from straying offline. I want to point out one thing good or bad - these drivers are loud, you know when you've smacked one and your group will tell they heard it. Probably my biggest takeaway from this driver is it's ability to produce minimal distance loss on miss-hit shots, yes I've hit some skanky drives this year and never find myself more than a club back of optimal distance. My own performance aside, I've seen others with the same results. On the trip KCLeo (this guy's pure stick and can golf a ball) was fit to the Z765 and has long struggled to find an ideal low spin and workable combination. He was nutting the driver and if you follow his social media continues to to this day. SCC4380 (Steve) was fit into a Z565 9.5⁰ driver with a Miyazaki Kaula Mizore 6 S shaft and may have hit his career drive on our 6th hole, which I swear was somewhere in the 340 yard range. So yes those are guys who joined me on the Srixon smchooz fest trip, what about the pure and unsullied masses? A good friend and member of my weekly foursome put his order in last week for a very similar setup to mine, he just couldn't get over how well I'm hitting it. My takeaway from all this - Srixon is a driver company and should be on your list of drivers to try. 3 wood F65 3 15* wood with Miyazaki Since my late 80's TaylorMade spoon, I haven't met a 3 wood I loved... A lot of that plays into look and comfortability at address . The Z F65 3 wood not only sits nice, but performs and feels like the Z series drivers. Not much more to say here, it works, but I’m sure I could hate it in a month just because it's a 3 wood. Utility U65 2 utility iron with Nippon Modus3 120 S shaft Want a hybrid that doesn't tend to flip over into hooks, enter the Srixon U65 utility series clubs. These things like to hold straight or baby cuts and they got everything covered in the distance department too. These are the perfect clubs for those who don't like the look of hybrids at address. Irons Srixon Z565 4-5 & Z765 6-PW with Nippon Modus3 120 S shafts V.T. Soles - that's the magic of these beauties. Designed to move through the ground easier and help tighten up shot dispersion. Translated: they make club go fast through the grass. You can be tired, lazy, hitting em fat and they still cut through the turf and minimize your miss-hits. Believe me I've seen it. The Z565 irons are compact for a cavity back not much bigger than the Z765, feel really smooth and offer quite a bit more playability than they suggest. I went with these in the long irons because they just added a touch more confidence on long shots. Other than my semi-shovels RocketBladez have I found it this easy to get long irons up in the air and and stop them near targets. Z765 in the mid and short irons were a no brainer. A Slimmer muscle cavity loaded with improvement technology that feel like butter. When you pure one these it feels as good as any irons on the market and I've hit the proclaimed kings: the Mizuno line. I was fit into the stock Nippon Modus3 120 option and it's a incredible pairing for a stock combo. Oh and I should mention, Srixon irons tested really well at MyGolfSpy HQ too. https://www.mygolfspy.com/tested-2017-srixon-z-series-irons/ Wedges Cleveland RTX-3 Tour Raw V-MG sole with Nippon Modus3 120 S shafts 50*-54*-58* These come in 3 grinds and like Srixon irons, feature Cleveland's extremely versatile V-Sole technology. I was fit to the V-MG which is a mid-range bounce and adapts nicely to the variable course conditions I experience in Pacific Northwest. The combinations of sole technologies combined with micro milling and laser milled face technologies have been noticeable when pulling off shots I haven't been able to make in years. As an example I had a 50 yard, half wedge pitch recently that that I could hear and feel I caught pure, "crisp and clean", however it flew 3 feet past the hole. Well to my shock and surprise I only had a 7 footer left. That ball literally one hopped and stopped dead. Oh and there's a cool face balancing technology, a shortened hosel, some weight move around, resulting is more head stability and straighter shots. I'm not going to ramble anymore, here's a video explaining it all. Shaft wise I was fitted to matching Modus3 shafts like my irons and I really like this combo. Not only have these wedges been a treat around the greens, but they play like irons on full shots. I've had wedges in the past that just felt limited in their abilities outside of 100 yards, either pop-up off the face or never seem to load properly. With the RTX-3 combo I'm able to flight trajectories, work them left and right, and step on them when I need that extra 4-5 yards. I gotta point out that I went with the raw finish and I'm curious to see if my OCD freaks out as the clean beauty starts to look more like a Jackson Pollock painting. Putter I thought for sure I was going to be gaming the Cleveland Huntington Beach #1 this season. The HB series putters are all about wow factor forged feel and milling, plus incredible balance all for under $100. But then something happened... On golf day I was informed they would not have a Huntington Beach available for me due to stock issues, so I was supplied with a TFi 2135 1.0. I had tested the TFi during fitting day and frankly, was not in love with the feel. You know though somethings are just fate, because I canned 3 putts over 20 feet in the first 6 holes we played, and then the epiphany; this putter is super easy to align, hard to get the ball started offline and the distance control is unreal. So then Cleveland was awesome enough to ship me home both putters, and being me I got all excited when the Hunting Beach finished fourth in MyGolfSpy's Most Wanted Blade test. So I bag the HB for the first month of season and putting just ok. So the next round I put the TFi into play and finish with 24 putts... Same epiphany... and guess what's still in the bag to this day? I'm gonna go out and say it. I don't think you'll find a putter out there that performs better than any Cleveland for under $150. If you see these on sale I'd buy one as backup even if you didn't need it. Balls Durability Unless you hit a cart path (or two), or 7 trees, or a railway track, a 67 Buick, or any combination of the these, and trust me I can attest to all this; all of the Z Star lineup look pretty much brand new after a round. ZStar Driver: Gets up a little, maybe on the high side of mid Irons: same as driver Wedges: suck back Putter: very soft I find the ball tends to drop out of the air faster with the Z for me on full shots, but they're by far my favorite from 100 yards and in. Spin control around the greens is just a touch above the other two balls and putter feel is amazing. Z Star XV Driver: mid flight Irons: mid Wedges: hop and stop Putter: soft The XV is my preferred ball for the long game. Ball flight is a consistent mid flight and it just seems to stay in the air a little longer. Spin is great, I'm just not sucking them back like the Z, but maybe that's a good thing because they're stopping where I need them to. Q Star Tour Driver: Gets up a little, maybe on the high side of mid Irons: same as driver Wedges: hop and stop Putter: super soft What a treat this ball was in our cold early spring. The Q Star is easy to compress thanks to its 75 compression, flies a mile and stops when you need them too. Around the greens these work like a tour ball checking when called upon and putter feel is exceptional. The jury's still out on which will be my official gamer as I continue to tweak the swing, but honestly I could play any of the Z Star Tour balls and be pretty happy. Bag Z4 Carry This a lightweight carry bag, with ample storage, it's solid feeling and so far displays quite sturdy legs. It fits on both my carts with no issues and has a fairly minimal footprint in the trunk. The top is a 4-way design, which having come from 6, 14 and OGIO's Woode system (which I freekin loved) I didn't think I'd adjust. I actually have zero issues with the 4 way after having used it and with the angled dividers find it quite effective at keeping clubs apart from chatter. I asked Eli Miller why only 4 and he told me they were gunning for more of a player's style bag, which I think combined with the overall stature of the bag design is quite a nice touch. There's 2 velour lined valuable pockets, which being the social and photo guy I am, I absolutely love. There's the usual higher up one on the long pocket side you'll find on most bags, which is fairly deep and has enough space for wallet, keys etc. And then there's the cell pocket on the side of the ball pocket, which sits on a perfect angle when standing or on a cart. I was able to keep it open with my phone in it over the past few 18's for quick access for taking photos. Finally completing the players bag touch is a removable ball pocket which is pretty standard for stitching purposes. Once again nice touch, because I need to sew the most important thing. The Z4 might be my new favorite thing after my driver cover. The wrap It’s hard not to come across as a fanboy at the end of the day (somewhere GolfSpy X is rolling his eyes at me), but I’m going to have to say this; Cleveland Srixon may offer the most complete bag setup of all the OEM’s. From award winning drivers, right thru to more award winning putters, balls, wedges and hell even the bag, Cleveland Srixon makes it a hard case to argue against.
  3. I am 17 years old and am going to be competing at the collegiate level after high school. I am looking at getting some new irons soon. I swing the club decently fast and hit the ball plenty far enough. Any suggestions??
  4. One of the areas we are going to strive to bring more information to the forum in the new year will be news from all the tours, both equipment news and anything else that we think is interesting or noteworthy. But since most of us are here because we are equipment nerds, we'll try and focus on that mainly. And I want to bring you more than just a simple WITB posting after a tour event, sure we have have that as well, but the goal is to go a bit deeper and provide more info than you'd normally see. As such, we've reached out to all the OEM's to supply us with any tour news they have on a regular basis. In full disclose for simplicity sake many times, it will be just publishing a press release they have sent out. Some OEM's may be better at this than others, so we just want to make it understood, it's not favoring any particular company but just an effort to provide the forum with as much info as you care to see from each company on it's equipment news/counts for the week. So with the PGA Tour on break until January, we have some info from the European and Japan Tours provided by Titleist. Quite honestly, I found some of this info surprising as well as interesting. I always knew they dominated the ball market on tour, but the numbers are pretty eye opening, as well as it's performance in the club counts as well. Feel free to chime in with your thoughts on this an all other info we post here going forward. I know most of us that are avid golfers don't necessarily make our club/ball purchasing decisions based on tour usage, but if nothing else, it'll make for some good conversation. edit: Sorry for the PDF I couldn't get it to save as a Pic for some reason. Titleist Tour Counts Week of Nov 25.txt Adding another count chart. I found two things interesting on this one. 2018COUNTS.pdf 1) On the PGA Tour Bridgestone has only 3% of the ball share, but yet had 13% of PGA Tour wins on the season. I guess you could call that the Bryson effect with a little help from Tiger. 2) Also the Australasian Tour Titleist had 100% of the wins. There was some presences from the other companies in play, but all 13 victories went to Titleist.

  6. Just browsing through the forums today and it's hard to miss how many awesome things are going on right now with MGS. Just on the first page of New Content (which I can't seem to hardly ever make it past) we have such great topics as Most Wanted Driver Results Cobra Connect Challenge-Full Bag Edition Wilson Staff Spy Slam Masters contest for a custom set of Wilson irons of your choice Sneek Peak at the new Hogan Edge Irons and Equalizer Wedges Fantasy Golf Going On New Members by the boatload introducing themselves And overall just a lot of great golf conversations going on in a friendly, helpful manner with no drama or BS. This is fully due to the phenomenal membership here. Thanks to all you for making it such a great place, and for letting me hang out with ya'll Oh and stay tuned, if we haven't said it recently, testing season is just getting ramped up and the opportunities are going to be incredible. If you're new and have any questions about that, feel free to ask anyone here, they'll be glad to help. And it this thread will tell you most everything you need to know. Note: The thread was started 4 years ago, but GolfSpy_Meyer posted an update to it on post 178, so starting there is not a bad thing. https://forum.mygolfspy.com/topic/9910-how-forum-testers-will-be-chosen-do-not-apply-within/page-12?hl=%20want%20%20to%20%20be%20%20tester
  7. A little over a month ago, TaylorMade and Rory debuted Rory's custom built clubs, the Rors Proto irons. I was wondering if anyone has come across some performance numbers for the irons like ball speed, spin, carry? It would simply be eyebrow-raising to see what numbers these clubs generate under Rory's swing. Maybe if someone has come across Rory's iron play numbers over the past month or so, that'd be super neat to study. Of course they're not production irons which hinders pretty much any possibility to gain numbers of them, but can't hurt to try! -Thanks! Swing easy.
  8. NOW LIVE ON BLOG SNEAK PEAK!! Coming Soon to the MyGolfSpy Blog A while back Adam, Tony and myself starting brainstorming new feature and/or series ideas for the blog. Today I'm bringing you a sneak photo peak of what's coming up, hopefully without giving away too much. So while you're ogling the pretty pictures we'll ask for your thoughts and feedback. What do you think we're up to? Any guesses on a concept or theme? What's your instant reaction to the brands displayed?
  9. Well, Here is what I plan on gaming this Season..... I have gone through the Fits by Hogan and SCOR.......then, applied some of it to some new aquisitions on ebay. Mizuno JPX800 Pros with Project X 5.0 graphite shafts Mizuno HPX 800 FliHi 5 iron with regular steel SCOR wedges 50*, 54* & 57* with steel shafts I then tweaked my 5 W to 17* and removed my 3W from the bag. I also added my Powerbilt 3H(20*) and 4H(23*) to complete the set. I like my loft differentials and now will need a few rounds to get used to them. Overall, I am excited to have a consistent gap with my clubs. Hopefully, I will be able to improve my game. I really like the feel of the Mizunos and SCORs. The Powerbilts are very consistent and I love my Bio Cell Driver & 5W.
  10. DV8 Sports: Golf Without Obstacles The folks at DV8 sports want us to ditch our current bags and clubs for their backpack design. We're talking about a set of interchangeable heads with a couple of shafts. Currently the DV8 system can be found on KickStarter where they've raised 26,000 of their $50,000 goal. From DV8 A game-changing set of golf clubs in a liberating, life-styled backpack. Finally, you're free to play golf whenever you want, wherever you can, regardless of lifestyle, trunk space or the lack thereof. Our new, fully functional, high-performance set of DV8 golf clubs does everything traditional clubs can, plus one thing they cannot: let you golf without obstacles. Because traditional golf clubs are bulky, heavy and cumbersome, they create obstacles that all too often force you to either sacrifice golf entirely or sacrifice your other lifestyle passions and pursuits to practice or play. Urban transit, let alone a cramped apartment, is an obstacle. Lack of trunk space is an obstacle. For bikers, cyclists and scooter riders, having no trunk space at all is definitely an obstacle. Forget the traditional, regulation set of 14 different club heads with 14 different shafts. DV8 lets you carry those same 14 club heads but with only 1 or 2 shafts. We simply vary the shaft length from our patented quick-change coupler to club head, keeping each club true to its regular length and performance. First we reinvented your clubs, then we reinvented your bag. No bigger or heavier than your computer backpack with customizable, colorful, front-panel styling. Size, weight, function, convenience, style – the DV8 bag has no baggage. This patented DV8 stainless steel quick-change coupler is the heart of it all. Forged from 5 years of meticulous design, innovation and craftsmanship, it allows DV8 clubs to swing, hit, feel and perform like traditional clubs. The unique DV8 coupler also lets you change club heads in under 3 seconds. The end result? When not in use, DV8 club heads fit securely into labeled slots in the bag's precision engineered block of EVA foam – the same lightweight, durable foam found in high-end camera/lens cases. As shown, shaft sections store vertically in the protective foam block and are accessed at the top of the bag. When you arrive at the range or golf course, simply assemble the two part DV8 shaft. That'll take you all of 5 seconds and you won't need to disassemble the shaft until you've completed play. While most golfers can tighten this coupling by hand, we provide an easy to use tool that will give those that need it a little extra leverage. (video on actual page) With your shaft assembled, you're now ready to practice or play. Club heads go in and out of the DV8 bag quickly and easily and heads can be interchanged on the shaft in under 3 seconds. No obstacle to that. (video on actual page) Finally, DV8 clubs are just as easy on your wallet as they are on your back. Because most golfers practice with only 4 to 5 clubs or play rounds with up to 14, we will allow buyers at retail to build the DV8 set that works best for them (instead of forcing people to buy prepackaged configurations that might be too much or too little). At launch, we'll offer a range of set configurations for those who know what they want but for others, we'll provide the flexibility to add heads individually to create custom practice or playing sets. Cost of equipment is a big obstacle to more people picking up this wonderful game. DV8 however has found a way to eliminate even that obstacle.
