I can imagine the traffic on cobras site getting a boost the last few days and would be lying if I said I haven't gone on and built a dream set top to bottom. 

totally. I also wish that we could partner up with other OEMs on something similar as well. How would @fixyurdivot handle a Ping or Srixon opportunity? Hell, this could be great to do with @GolfSub70 as well (in fact could be a whole bag since they make putters as well). We can all dream. I am very thankful that MGS even gets testing opportunities.

... Certainly think about your course and others you might play. I cannot imagine a follow cart at many courses I play as there are short cuts for walkers, bridges and the occasional sprinkler or French drain. If I played the same course that was relatively flat like a CC then maybe. I like having it in front of me for many reasons like sending it to the other side of the green or even the next tee box. 

Your comments are so correct, I love sending my MGI on the other side of the green towards the next tee box, etc. With it being in front of you, it's easy to keep it out of the sprinkler heads or possible drain areas.

With the follow, you can use it on follow mode or use it on remote mode. I see myself using both follow mode and remote mode depending on the terrain.

After 32 putts yesterday and a massive 35 putts today, I'm thinking about going armlock. Just could not keep the head of my FCG steady.  The only reason this is in thought vs purchase is I have no idea where to start in this armlock process lol

Might be late on this, but you should look into the new EVNROLL Mid-Lock putters.

I'm thinking about how much longer it's going to take for my new Srixon irons to arrive.  I know I already have them listed in my signature, but I'm still waiting for all of them to arrive.  I've only received the 6-iron so far, and am supposed to be receiving another package tomorrow, but I don't know what's coming until I open the box.

I have been looking at some reviews but a lighter/bigger grip (SS Pistol 2.0 Grim Reaper 54g measured vs SS Pistol 1.0PT 62g measured) made a big difference the last few times out. At least it made a difference in my confidence and stroke. Still gotta give myself some more makeable  opportunities.

Haha "makeable opportunities", I think you hit the nail on the head for pretty much for all of us with that one.

Yeah and the definition is different for all of us. 
 

I will say I have started basically every putt on my line(not always the right one) since the grip switch. I left a few inches short but I can deal with working on getting my speed right. As long as I’m hitting my intended line my confidence will continue to grow.

My wife is going to kill me, but think i might pickup a Stewart golf bag to go along with my electric caddie that is on pre-order, because it has an interlocking system to help stabilize the bag. She's not going to kill me because of price, but because I am taking up space in the garage with golf bags. I currently have in the garage: a Nike bag, a Sun Mountain carry bag, a Revolver XP bag (currently in use, but has a warranty claim for it), and a second Revolver XP bag that will be coming due to the warranty claim. I don't have to send the first one back, and the first one still works because i glued a piece back together.

this might be a first for the forums, but i’m on your wife’s side here. i can’t stand clutter and that’s a lot of bags sitting there unused.

i’ve got just a couple of shafts and a putter i haven’t been able to sell and it drives me crazy every time i see them in the basement.

I don't really like it either. Think i will donate the Nike bag, donate the Revolver XP bag that had an issue with the putter well, but i fixed, sell the Revolver XP bag that I get from the warranty claim, keep the Sun Mountain bag for travel, and then have the new cart bag that fits with the electric caddie.
