Have you purchased based upon the Product Reviews?


Recommended Posts

Hey all,  it is nice to see comments and likes when a member posts an equipment review.  I was just wondering how effective they are.  Has anyone actually made a purchase based upon the product reviews posted on My Golf Spy?

 

Kindly post your thoughts here......Let us know what you purchased and what it was in the review that helped you make that decision.

The personal information in the reviews came as the result of suggestions from forum members. I agree that it's extremely helpful. There are lots of guys here who I respect and enjoy but their games

Oh, oops, to answer Foz's initial question: Yes!   Reading reviews from regular, amateur players - who describe their game; the good and the bad - and so give such a great "context" with which one c

Almost everything golf related I buy is based on reviews I have read from other members or MGS, Carbon Ringo 1/4, Bushnell v4, Taylor made M1 driver, Pimg irons, cobra king f6 fairway, cobra flyz driver, Eidolon wedges... I can keep going, but yes to me very important to get feedback from other golfers

That's a great list Peter.  As for myself, I can attribute my purchases of Snell golfballs, both Get Sum and My Tour Ball, SCOR Wedges(41/45/49/53/57), Bridgestone 330RX golfbsalls, Cobra Bio Cell irons(purchased the SW after I did the review), Cobra Bio Cell Driver, Fairway & Hybrids, Cobra Fly Z+ Driver and Cobra King LTD Driver, just to name a few.

Foz, I bought my MG laser range finder from a review. Probably done by you I think.

Thanks jacustomgolf. Hovering finger is beginning to twitch!

 

I purchased the Snell MTB and my Titleist 915 D2. I got a carbon putter for my wife based on the reviews here.  Photo of the Carbon.  Wife was in the Air Force (EOD) 6 years, with our kids birthdays and 4J (all our names start with J)

My next ball purchase will be Snell because of the reviews -- likely just a dozen to start, but if I like them as much as I think then I'll stick with them for awhile before giving something a chance to dethrone them.

 

My next couple club purchases will also have been strongly influenced by some of the recent reviews, including but not limited to: Best Drivers 2016, Ping Crossover review thread, Ben Hogan Ft Worth lng irons review thread, etc... I've found that the reviews have some influence on which clubs I try (or not to try) when I have a chance to get to the store -- This saves me a lot of time (and energy -- swinging can get tiring!) so thanks to everyone who has written a review :)

Having just joined a few months back I can say that my recent driver purchase was definitely a result of reviews here on the site. When I start looking towards my next purchase I search here first as I value the time and effort everyone here seems to put in. Being a thorough person myself I appreciate the effort put forth by the testers and staff to provide an unbiased opinion.

Blast from the past, but I bought not one but two Adams 9064ls drivers 10.5/9.5 after reading MGS reviews. Still haven't replaced my gamer, whose face I cracked.

I just joined after reading an article MGS did on Snell balls, trying them, and really liking them. This website will definitely influence my future purchases.

Not ä review per se, but thanks to a fellow spy's recommendation, I got my Adams driver that lasted so many years.

I've been around for a while and don't purchase much just based on a review.  I tend to get fit for most of my clubs and buy off that.

 

However, two big ones for me were the Snell MTB and Scor wedges.  I bought both based off reviews from this site and both were huge wins for me.  Love the MTB and I've had another 5 or 6 guys at my club start playing it.  

 

Also you can pry the Scor's out of my cold dead hands before I switch to a different wedge (except maybe Hogan TK's which are the same thing)  :)

NEVER on clubs, That same club that is reviewed is a different animal in your hands.  I read the reviews and if I see it in the Demo bins, I might give it a couple of swings to see what the HOOPLA is all about.
