I just looked at the community map. @JohnSmalls it looks like I will be in your neck of the woods. My daughters track meet is a Winthrop University today and tomorrow. Leaving my house in about 40 minutes to head over.  

Interesting that when I looked at the Community map my marker was missing.  I could not add a marker either.  But when I went and clicked on the map and tried to set a marker it asked if I wanted to update my information and VOILA! my marker was back, my username back in the right column Cast of Characters, number of markers updated, geometric shape on the search map included my end of Lake Erie location, etc.

Everyone - If you have not checked your Community Map marker you should go in and reactivate it, looks like things might be hidden (or not).

Record is Titleist T series irons with just over 15,000 applications.

I know I have gone over this somewhere, but worth repeating. It may be in the Want to be a tester thread, first post. 

Anyway we filter the applicants. Profile photos are a must, then we filter for roughly 20 posts and then we are left with maybe 5% and if we go to 50 or more posts it is 2% of the applications. Nearly 90% are one off or "tester only" applicants who only sign up for tests. 

All in all we create our short list which @GolfSpy_BOS transfers over, we all give our input and usually there is some overlap on who we like for a test and have a bit of discussion on who we want. Some cases we don't select someone because we feel they would be better for another test or they have tested irons recently etc. 

It seems like a lot and would take forever, but really we can have it all done in the span of a normal call which is about an hour. 

This was like watching an abbreviated episode of "How it's made" thanks for the look behind the curtain.

Interesting!! I was actually just reading the Data thread that got linked somewhere and when you use data like you’re saying I can see how it narrows down the pool really really quickly. Thanks for the insight!

I've been spending the evening advising a friend on a Golf Ho purchase. He texted me and told me he was eyeing a set of used TM P790's. Of course I did encourage him to hit them since they were different than his current irons (Tommy Armour Atomics). We discussed the pros and cons of the different iron sets. He ended up buying them at a good deal. Now I just can't wait to see him hit them.

I'm going to encourage him to either let his wife use the TA's or give them to his brother. Gotta share the love. 

The P790's are impressing me, to say the least.  They remind me somewhat of years back when I gamed the Taylormade R9 irons. Same head size and performance and they were a huge hit for TM.
