Thoughts on Crossfield?

I prefer Shiels, because our swing speeds are comparable.

I like Mark for the same reason

That's actually a great point Dave. I'm with you on that being a plus for me with Mark.

To each their own Carolina.

 

I just love that he brings an element of FUN to the game as Hula eluded to, and also that he doesn't seem afraid to say what's on his mind. Just a cool perspective to have.

 

Shiels does a great job as well. I think he's more... traditional and less likely to speak out than Mark would be (maybe not in reviews, but on twitter, etc).

 

For example when Mark didn't receive the M1 or an invite he fired back to TaylorMade with videos and was very blunt in why he felt that was happening. Was cool to see him call them out.

Exactly if we all liked the exact same thing, then well that would be quite boring and make for very limited internet discussion wouldn't it...ha

 

I don't mean to slight Mark in any way, and perhaps I have.  As I said, I need to listen to him a bit more.  It's just that my internet time has been so limited the past month as it's been crazy busy at work. Which has kept me off MGS more than I would have liked the past month or so.  :(

 

Matter of fact I've got a video on pause on Youtube of a guy from his experience at Callaway fitting in EU and I haven't had time to go finish it...LOL

I love Mark. I am bummed that Buzza had to go off and move to Thailand as he provided so much comedic gold for Mark. To go off on a bit of a tangent...The fact that Callaway allows Lockey to play their equipment is pretty incredible...considering how bad he can play

Totally makes sense and thats similar to my situation with other guys on YouTube. I can't speak to their overall persona/body of work because I'm not as fluent in it.

 

I will say one universal trait that they seem to have and I really enjoy is they don't seem to call each other out our challenge one another much. You would expect there would be some bashing/lines in the sand drawn on quality and differences between these guys and they all seem to keep it very professional.

This is a great point. Myself I think it speaks volumes for Callaway doing that because I honestly think they realize these guys are out there to have fun and be a personality (who is also educated) that can drive the content. Having someone back that is cool.

 

I think that type of things gains more Callaway followers than some of the lower tier tour guys do. Maybe even some higher end guys. They're just normal people which makes the content really approachable.

This part is so spot on.  I actually saw a post from Shiels  this morning on Instagram that was responding to someone who asked who is the one best person to watch on youtube videos for club information.   Rick responded with why limit yourself to just one person, there are so many great guys out there doing it.   I thought that was pretty cool to say.

I enjoy watching both Rick and Mark play out on the course to see how they make their way around.  I've come to find out that there is quite the difference between the simulator and putting it into practice!

Mark is a very outgoing and has a bubbly personality! I like him! Rick and Peter finch are nice as well, I tend to catch myself forwarding through the small talk a lot and just like to see the shots and stuff. MeandMygolf don't really help me a lot to watch since it's mostly instructional stuff! Golfholics is a nice one if you have need seen them, they are super cool guys with amazing editing! They also play some really nice courses. They make you want to go out and play golf again! If you haven't seen them it's definitely worth checking out!

+1 on the golfholics... their drone footage is 2nd to none.... they play mostly SoCal courses but their footage and use of the gimbal is great.

I've been watching Crossfield and Shiels for a while now. Don't really have a favorite like them both. I enjoy the reviews and comparisons a lot .

... As someone that reviews clubs fir over 20 years now, I can assure you it is easy to fall in love with an OEM when they are making great products. It can seem to an outside observer that al of a sudden you have been bought by an OEM, but truth is they are just making clubs that fit your game, your eye and they really perform for you. 

 

... I think Mark talks too much about stuff irrelevant to the review. I like to fast forward thru his reviews but usually like what he has to say about any given product. 

Have to agree. When its good its good and when it works for you its even better. Some of us remember the way Callaway and Eli changed the game and the iron market. Nothing but props for Callaway..

Crossfield plays, in the venacular of my family in England, "silly buggers". Always on and acting as if he just got off the school bus for the latest outing. It works for him and those that like him. Its all about the show on youtube for the endless click click click here subscribe subscribe subsribe there crowd where ratings and rankings mean revenue. His golf tips and ideas are nothing earth shattering but he is quite good in the lesson booth.

Crossfield has all the toys to of which I dare he didnt pay for as well. Its no accident he is rated on youtube where he is...
