I'm looking for a new bag thinking that it'll be a sun mountain stand bag. They are one of the few that look like they still make stuff in America. If y'all know of any other USA made bags let me know.

Or a Mizuno, or TS2/3. My buddy has a TS2 coming from the rep whenever the heck they start building/shipping again, so I'm hoping I can scope it out when his gets here. I've seen the 410 but as I've stated about their drivers, I'm not a massive fan of the turbolaters (sp), and I feel like it's accentuated by the smaller hybrid head. I can stomach it on the driver, not sure I could ever like looking at the hybrid, but if it does the job then I'll bag it in the name of lower scores.

I picked up an “excellent condition” 818 H1 hybrid this year and added on popped in the fade bias weight. So far I’ve only had 4 balls with it and I’m averaging around 200 (mix of fairway and tee). Once the ranges open up Ill get to play around with it some more but I haven’t sniffed the over-draw I was starting to see with my old Ping G30 hybrid. If you want a cheap experiment I recommend giving one of those a swing! I think they still hold their own against the TS2/G410 clubs (as long as you get your loft right)

Odyssey Stroke Lab black vs. Edel E-2 tourque balanced....

Got the putter itch? What are you trying to accomplish with the update? I really don’t know much about Edel, but I don’t like the feel of the newer Odyssey inserts.

I read that they firmed up the face. Would be interested to see how it feels now. The first iteration felt like pillows and it was very hard for me to get a feel for speed. I was glad to read the forum testers confirm the same thing -- thought it was just me being my usual picky self.

Everyone is going ga-ga over the TEN.... Looks pretty dang close to a Spider. I don't play a mallet but it looks F_I_N_E fine.

Would probably be the most talked about club in golf had we not gone into shutdown.

Loving how they made the head all black and a lot of folks seem to like the face. Wish I could try it somewhere but I might just take the plunge, sight unseen. The shaft has me very intrigued.

accomplish? I'd like to make some 10 and 20 footers; sucks big time to keep having birdie putts and not make a damn thing.

Sure, I'd love a Scotty or an Evnroll but those are outta my budget, so I gotta go with the next best thing....

Double Wide showed positive strokes gained from both 10 and 20 feet; oddly it showed a negative S.G. from 5 feet? what??

That is weird. I’m really digging the shape of the ER2B and love the look of the Newport. Before that I used an odyssey Rossie which is a kind of classic mid-mallet size. Any bigger than that they start to look awkward to my eye during the stroke.

I have to agree that the Ten looks great with the all black finish and bold sight line.

You should go down and see Steve at Spargo Golf for a putter fitting. He’ll get you draining those putts in no time at all.

Haha... my very first fitting was at Spargo years ago and I met Steve then. Glad to hear that he's still around. 
I did a fitting at club champion and at TrueSpec.... neither one of those helped me make 10-20 footers but I gained an understanding of what type of putter I need.

I just picked up a Ten this week and took it to the course this weekend. Really liked the putter although I struggled with distance I seemed to do well with startline.

I have hated past iterations of the face and the new face is much firmer. Need to do some more analysis on different feels across the face but much better than past microhinge faces. The putter I bought had the stability face so when stores open again or I can get back to trying stuff at MGS headquarters I will compare to the feel on one with a stroke lab shaft.
During testing I found the triple track alignment distracting so I am using the one with the single line. 100x better.


Double Wide showed positive strokes gained from both 10 and 20 feet; oddly it showed a negative S.G. from 5 feet? what?? 

It is amazing how with some putters you just struggle at 5’. From that distance if miss a couple you are negative strokes gained. 10’ and longer 50% becomes the mark to achieve. Since we are rolling 6 from the same distance hitting 5/6 with a putter does happen; which boosts strokes gained.

that's right I forgot you did putter at TrueSpec too.  It Sounds like the TEN's got a better face and if you like the looks the best that's prob the one to take a flier with.  I putt better when I like that I'm looking down at.  Confidence can be big on those putts!

Sometimes a new look or three make a huge difference. Okay, maybe a hundred new looks and counting.

Seriously, every time I got in a rut putting I had a pro look at my stroke and the change was a different type of putter. My stroke is solid my mental side to putting is shite.

Haven't tried them,  another forum gives them good reviews.   Saw a video where someone was getting a fitting and had that grip on their putter.  The fitter described the person as very mechanical/engineering type trying to make everything square.  Result of the fitting was that it didn't work well for him.   I'd be more interested in the weighting system

Yep, saw the reviews on the other forum. Interesting on the fitting not working out for the mechanical/engineering person. I like the thought of everything square, but also I am a very feel type player. I want to be able to feel the putter square up at impact. I will probably end up buying this grip sometime soon.

I just bought Mizuno MP-20 SEL irons, SM8 wedges, Odyssey double wide stroke lab putter, and getting fitted for a driver, 2iron/driving iron, 3 wood, 5 or 7 wood, and a hybrid tomorrow. No idea what brands I will go with. Trying to go on the data and what gives me the tightest dispersion
