I've not really had any issues with using Android with Arccos other than battery drain and still have enough to play 18. I upgraded phones a while back and now that's to a minimum. My biggest complaint is Arccos not having the social aspect for Android and I've mulled the idea of buying an iPhone just for that reason. Looks like you had a good idea going that route, I hope you really enjoy it. The data is absolutely helpful and sometimes humbling. That's nice! Odyssey is one of those putters that I can just pick up in the store and just flat out roll. Now, on the course it might be a different story. Best of luck with it!

Just got my Boonie hat in today, it's a little more olive than I expected, but I think it'll do the job of keeping my ears and neck from frying. Makes me feel a little like@MattF but not as fashionable. 20200528_161751-01.jpeg

I have heard not-so-good things about the Android app so I went with the iPhone version.

I think some of the issues may be brand-specific. I use an old Huawei without a sim card and battery life is great. I can play 18 on a full charge and still have ~70% battery left after the round. The battery life on that phone was always outstanding, though.

As @yungkory said, it's little irritating that so many apps are so bad on Android, but the reasons are somewhat understandable, but at some point consumers need to stop accepting that excuse. When I had nothing but Apple devices for my last job, I hated them, but I think most of that was company-made software that sucked, souring my overall taste of the brand. If/when my youngest daughter gets a new phone, I may steal here iPhone 8 and try it with Arccos just to see if the experience is any better.

My daily use phone is and always has been Android. A couple of years ago I went with Pixel and haven't looked back; I figured that since Google is the developer of Android then I'd be as close as I can get to the source. 🙂 

There were 2 reasons I chose iOS over Android for Arccos though.

1- as you guys said; when you have a single OS you know what to expect and how to develop for it. When you have all of these different flavors of Android around there are so many bugs and issues to resolve that it no longer becomes cost-effective to have the app run at it's optimal potential. So Android gets a vanilla version.... or something like that and Apple gets the good stuff. 🙂

2- the primary reason is SIZE. the iPhone comes in 4" screen sizes which gives the phone itself a small footprint. I tried to find a small Android phone -- one with a similar size. I found one or two and only one that I would 'trust' - the Sony phone from years ago. I had it for a while but it no longer updated Android versions so I switched. If I have to keep this thing in my front pocket I want the smallest and lightest one I can use. If my Android phone was as small as the iPhone I'd probably use it but I guess everyone wants BIG HUGE PHONES now.

I know there's the Apple watch option but my family lives in the 'Droid world so that's a non-starter.

There's a simple solution to this - bring the dang belt sensor to market !!!! 😉

Hope this works! I'm not one to buy a putter without trying it first but I've heard outstanding things about this and can return up until August 1st.
It was between this one and the double wide; ready for all the MOI I can get.  Plus the "S" version has a little toehang for my slight arcing stroke.

Phil's first time out with it and he had 7 birdies.... I'll be happy with half of that. 

Have had mine out for one round but have been hitting putts indoors with it this week. I like the firm face. Don’t get a lot of feedback on off center strikes. Not sure if that is the grip or the BGT shaft. Not necessarily a bad thing, just not a preference.

I do like the putter.

Those look awesome, and from the look of the sole, really comfortable. I can't tell from the picture, are they spikeless or do the have Softspikes? 

Soft spikes. One huge one under the heel, and a few towards the toe. Very comfortable walking on the tile in the house, excited to try them on the course tomorrow!

That's the thing, I had a Pixel which is about as vanilla as you can get in terms of Android, AND IT WAS WORSE. My friend had an S10 and it worked better on TouchWiz or whatever Samsung calls their Android version/launcher.

Found a deal that was too good to pass up on a 9* Callaway Mavrik Sub Zero with Aldila 130 White Shaft TS. Really was looking for a 10.5, but you're able to adjust loft 1 or 2 degrees so should work out well.   Excited to have something shiny.

Really debating on bettinardi bb39 putter...was fitted last year wasn’t there for a putter and my current odyssey 1W is great and I don’t even like mallet putters but getting fitted this was a club I stood over and pitted less than 2 seconds drained all 10 putts (granted it was straight.)

deals on eBay right now...can someone talk me off the ledge or push me over....

Something new to try.

1. I love the color scheme and that's what caught my eye when I saw some irons on eBay with them.

2. I researched them and liked what I read so I got them to try.

What have I gone and done now?..🤦‍♂️

So about a week ago I posted about my trade for a Callaway steelhead XR 3+ wood. Usually when I have an itch for a particular club, I find it, get it, and close the door. 

I was searching around for a driver for a buddy and just couldn't help myself when I found this.. bought it for $20 with the plastic still on the head. It came with a Mits Kuro Kage blue 60g "made for" S flex. Took them both to the launch monitor. Nearly identical #'s. I really like the Adams at address and seemed a tad more forgiving. Only thing I didn't quite like was that while smooth, the shaft was a bit whippy for my liking. 

So last night I murdered it out with my Pro Force Black that I used to have in my driver. 

Sorry folks.. when I can get similar performance out of a brand new 5 year old club for $20.. as a $250 club from today's market..

Bought a grip remover and a caliper measuring tool. Grip ho-ing here I come! Already took off my standard sized Tour Velvet from my driver and replaced it with a MCC Plus 4 Undersized that was on a wedge shaft that was laying around. First time took about 5 minutes to get the grip off. Second time, it was easy-peezy.

My wife and I drove to Chattanooga to hit up a nursery to feed her plant addiction and on the way back stopped at the local DSG to check it out since they moved location into the mall. I walked out with a new pair of golf shoes after she talked me in to them. I think she was feeling guilt after spending money on plants the last couple of weeks and wanted to feel better about it. Got a pair of Adidas CP Traxion at a deal. They were listed at $79 and I got them for $59.

My second purchase was made after we got back into town and stopped at the ReStore. I've been wanting to pick up a bladed club since I've seen numerous threads about traditional vs SGI clubs and wanted to see if they held merit with this high capper. I initially found a Ben Hogan 8 iron and was going to pick it up, but I looked and saw a Wilson Staff Fluid Feel in a 6 iron. Then I found another in the set, and another, and another. I found a complete set 2-PW! At $2 a club I just bought them all. 20200530_183852-01.jpeg20200530_183114-01.jpeg20200530_183138-01.jpeg

They need a little TLC, they have rust spots on the heads and shafts. I'm actually going to try my hand at cleaning and buffing then out to see if I can make them prettier. The groups are in surprisingly good shape and still have some tack to them. 20200530_183236.jpeg

I'm going to have to give it a little bit before I get out and hit them as the local driving range is still suffering from tornado damage. I took the 2 iron out and looked down at it and I think I'm going to have nightmares.

20200530_183950-01.jpeg

I'm hoping to play an all iron round with them during the Hard Rock Challenge because I strangely like punishing myself. I think it might be bad.

I like using both, I have a pair of FJ's that have spikes I use in wet conditions and for SuperSpeed. I also have some Pumas that are spikeless, so I thought I'd get another pair to switch back and forth to keep the wear down on them.

Good ground contact is important, I actually remember my first set of golf shoes had metal spikes. They felt like you could walk straight up a tree with them. They definitely had some grip, except on concrete where they were just a little slick.
