  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.

  12. NIKE RZN TOUR 2016 Recently received the Nike RZN Protos, which I'm told are the Platinum. Weathers been crappy lately, but finally got a chance this weekend to do some comparisons around the greens. Luckily I have 5 of the older models to compare. Initial reaction is they are softer, closer to the old One Tour's. Last few models are definitely clickier than these. Roll off the putter and wedge feel is quite nice. Will report back as I get out more.
  13. Srixon have been good enough to enable ten forum members to put the new, 2015 editions of the Srixon Z-Star and Z-Star XV through their paces. As was established last year with ball reviews, rather than have every one of them post a 3 page dialog about what they thought about a golf ball, we are having testers answer questions in several pivotal areas of ball performance and give their observations so we can get a collated overview. We wanted to get an understanding of the collective perception of Srixon balls before the testing got underway in earnest, so this first post focuses on preconceptions of Srixon golf balls. Srixon… they make the yellow balls, right? What's being tested? The new Z-Star and Z-Star XV are said to combine “next generation SpinSkin™ and Speed Dimples™ innovation to give the “Tour” player unmatched feel and control, and the energetic gradient growth™ core delivers incredible distance.” Z-Star: Z-Star XV: MGS Forum Members: Who's testing what? Each tester received one dozen balls, either the Z-Star or the Z-Star XV, based on the details that they had provided in the testing application process (SS, current ball, etc). Tester group experience with Srixon balls Somewhat surprisingly, only 7 of our 10 testers have played Srixon balls previously. Of those that have played Srixon balls previously, two have used freebies given out through event sponsorships and two others haven't played Srixon balls for a number of years. Conversely, one of our testers has played Srixon balls regularly since 2008. What brand of ball are you primarily using (prior to testing the Srixon balls)? [Note, where testers mentioned multiple brands of ball, all have been included] What comes to mind when you think of Srixon balls? As you can imagine, the responses to this question were pretty varied. Some of the common themes that emerged were that Srixon is seen as: Graeme McDowell's ball, but not one played by anyone in my golf circle Not highly advertised, not marketed as well as it could be Innovation in Color Quality and Durability A player in the premium ball category, but not really on the radar to actually game. Titleist has been the standard, then Cally/TMaG. Srixon maybe a tick below those companies A decent ball, but at similar price point it's not good enough to force a change from Titleist What characteristics make a good ball? The last series of questions was to find out our tester group perceptions of what makes for a good ball. As expected, the answers were mostly all over the place, but there were a few commonalities – if you're watching Srixon, this is our wish list … good luck getting all of these in one small, round package… Driver – Distance with low spin and a flat, penetrating trajectory Irons – Consistent and predictable trajectory and distance Wedges – Consistent trajectory and ‘hop & stop' (high & predictable) spin Putter – Predictable distance, softer feel, clean alignment mark Other – Durability and excellent visibility Final pre-testing thoughts… Everyone is really excited to be testing these, and to see how these compare to their current gamers. Srixon balls have been in the conversation for a number of the guys, but the consensus has generally been that there hasn't been a strong enough reason to make a switch from their current gamer ball. Watch this space to see if the latest generation of Srixon balls can change this… Testing Process The testers have actually had their balls for a couple of weeks now and have been playing with them regularly. I've had some of them give me little snippets of how the testing is going, and I can guarantee this will be really interesting to follow. You'll all get to read about them in a week or two, as soon as I can get all of the survey results together. The main focus of the results will be how the Srixons compared to their gamers, who wants to keep playing the Srixons they received, and how the testing strengthened or changed their opinions of the balls after playing them for a while. In the meantime, feel free to ask questions or leave comments about your own balls (golf balls only please), or what you think of Srixon in general.
  14. Vision Golf has launched a crowdfunding campaign to bring their products into North America. Their flagship and patented UV absorbing golf ball is a clear indication of their innovative, design driven approach. Have a look at the product packages at: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/vision-golf-balls
  15. Received a package in the mail today: Let's see what's in there: All snuggled up! Purty! The main competition... Soon - out to the course we go.
  16. If you go on Taylormade's website you can buy lethal golf balls in bulk 20, 50, 144. My question is why don't more companies do this? I know some people like certain numbers or different things. Does packaging matter to you? Does it have to come in a sleeve or a dozen? What if they let you buy bulk of certain numbers you like? I do play lethals so when I saw this I really liked the idea. How many balls are you willing to buy at one time and how much are you willing to spend?
  17. Hi MyGolfSpy Members, We are LostGolfBalls.com, and we are the largest distributor of recycled golf balls in the world! The most important thing to know about us is that we're golfers too. Each and every one of us. We love and respect this amazingly fulfilling (and fickle) game. Our huge golf ball warehouse is based in Sugar Land, Texas. But we work with 2,400+ courses from across the country to provide us with high-quality used golf balls that are recycled and sold at prices considerably less than the original retail price. For more than 20 years, we have served golfers by providing a solid product at an outstanding value. All golf balls are recycled from the very best courses nationwide, carefully inspected and sorted, and finally, washed with an environmentally friendly cleaner to provide a top quality product at half the price of new. We wash without stripping, painting or using any harsh chemicals, each ball is specially cleaned using a proprietary cleaning system and then sold for a generous discount directly to the consumer (YOU). We have used an industry-leading, independent research facility to test the balls to prove that the used balls are just as good as new! Rigorous quality control checkpoints guarantee that balls are precisely graded and sorted for sale. Although some mistakes do happen (we are human) we always rectify any issues with our outstanding customer service! We are here to answer any questions about what we do and why we think you should never buy new balls again! Also, we'll be posting about what's new in the golf ball world as well sharing our awesome promotions or giveaways! Thanks!
