I joined to hear other people’s comments regarding new equipment and to be a tester myself

Welcome...The best way to become a tester is stay active, by joining discussions, starting your own topic as well helps, but isn't required.  Make sure to fully update your profile.  Havng an Avatar in your profile is one of the first things looked at as it personalizes your profile a bit.    A WITB helps as well.

We believe this is going to be avery good year for member testing, and we love having new testers all the time.

I joined because I like to read reviews from real people with real experience with the product. A lot of reviews on Amazon and google place the highest reviews first and it’s hard to find the bad reviews. People will also have a bad experience with the company and roast the product for no reason other than them not liking the company. Obviously the opportunity to be part of some of the testing is a bonus too.

So talking abour our first post, got me looking for mine and I noticed on my profile,  I passed 12,000 today!!

Here's my first post from 2016.  Kind of funny that I updated it 18 months later as I relaized how lame it was for a first post.   At the time, I was very actice on a site that shall not be named, but begins and ends with THP 😞    And got tired of the way members were treated there if you didnt suck up tothe owner let alone disagree with one of his opinons.   

So I found MGS and haven't looked back since.   A big  shout out to @JudgeSmails who was the first to welcome me just mintues after I posted, something he has continued to be very good at with all new members to this day!!

Describe Srixon in ONE WORD

As someone who can easily do anagrams, am I the only one who sees Srixon as Six iron?

[and yes I added another i but I'm one of those people who read equally well backwards as upside down and sideways] - Don't get me started on the word EXIT in transparent letters on a glass door.

I joined because of the information they provide. I am a golf nut and am always looking for information to help me with my game. Their equipment reviews are honest and cover just about any question you may about the item they are reviewing. Their staff is very knowledgable and seem to be always trying to improve on that. In short, I trust their reviews and rely on them when making a decision on a certain piece of equipment.

I joined back in the early years when you just had a handful of testers and showed data for each of them in each test.  The data was not as useful overall but for me it was great because you had a tester named Dan that had similar swing speed and age as me.  I liked the way you told it like you saw it and screw the manufacture if they were full of crap.  I think that many of the companies stopped sticking there subpar off year junk on the market.  I have found companies I would never have found on my own.  Find it cut it may have changed the ball market forever.  I donate because I believe in what I get from the site.

MGS was a great source for information about golf. It introduced me to many brands that got very little media coverage. They always had great equipment reviews and tons of great golf stories. For a golf junkie it was like home..

With technology becoming such an integral part of the game, I loved the scientific and no bull approach to golf. I think this team has not only played a role in growing this great game but I’d call them a disruptor. I’ve made better choices in equipment, saved money and improved as a result. 
You can clearly see they’ve had an impact on the industry. Many if not all use the Most Wanted MGS logo next to their equipment in a spot once reserved for the Hot List award. 
I never look for new equipment without stopping to visit them first. 
 

Grip it and rip it,

I joined because I wanted to be a tester. About a hundred years ago there was another forum which did testing and I got to test and review several products for them. I enjoyed it. So, I figured I'd enjoy this. 

I got a bag full of Cobras.... Well, not the putter... yet.

I am 74 yrs old and the first time I held a club I was 8. It was a Hickory Stick from the next door neighbour and I broke his window on my 3rd shot. My dad had to get the glass and replace the window. I lost my allowance, 25 cents for weeks ! I was hooked !

I joined here because I love the game and get up to date, no BS reporting and opinions on The Game. Great job guys and fellow golfers ! Best unbiased  source for what is new and what is coming.

At the time I was poking around the Internet looking for interesting golf content.  I stumbled on MGS, read some reviews and comments, and thought 'yeah, this looks really good'
