Cleveland Srixon #FitLikeAPro: 6 Month Report   My journey to better began last November during the MyGolfSpy #FitLikeaPro Cleveland/Srixon experience at their headquarters in Huntington Beach, Cali

Excuse me, sir, those were the DJ tees. Sergio ain't got nothing on me.....except a green jacket.....and a few Tour wins......and fame and fortune.   The range at LaCosta was funny though...."excus

Ok, sorry to say that I went back to my fitter at lunch today with every intention of buying the Z565, but...... I noticed they just got the new Ping G400 drivers in and couldn't resist trying them ou

Did they talk at all about the advantages/disadvantages about using the 765 approach wedge versus using the RTX wedge?  I have the 545 set and I added the 565 approach when the line came out since they didn't offer it in the 545's.

I was reading the first part about the trip to California and the fitting. I really enjoyed reading all the experiences very much. Thanks guys. As I started reading,a thought popped into my head - what happens if someone is at one of these fittings and isn't impressed or does not want the clubs or feels the new clubs are not as good as his set Maybe a question for MGS - has this happend? And of course,what do the say in the workforce this would be " a career killer"

Again it was a great read and enjoyed reading this 6 month follow up. A real commitment to go,to test,and to evaluate. Thanks all

We encourage all reviewers to be honest in their review of the equipment.

 

A couple things about this. The attendees knew what irons this trip was for and what choices were in play. So if they had any doubt or hesitation about the commitment to giving them a fair trial, I'm sure they would have passed.

 

Take GS_meyer for example. He's a 2 index, and he was wide open minded about getting fit for these. And has recently said, it's going to take something special to get them out of his bag.

 

If they had not worked for him, I have no doubt he would have given a detailed review about why they didn't.

...and if you ever are selected to do any testing for MGS and don't really like the product or it doesn't work for you there are ways (many, just ask!) to pass it along to someone else at MGS who might be a better fit for it.

Yes, it/they (whatever it is) are yours to keep and do what you'd like but the hope is you continue using it/them and post periodic updates for everyone in the community.  :)

Absolutely correct and I'm a great example of that. After connecting with the mods after my review period was up I was able to send the clubs to another MGS member who was looking for that exact set. It's a perfect way to keep the reviews going AND get perspective from more golfers at the same time. Win-win.

@GolfSpy MBP Curious if you moved on to the new new (785 irons) Just went 585 785 combo set with modus 3 105 x. Did you try out the 105x by any chance?

Same irons and wedges in the bag atm, I'm actually playing around with the idea of starting the year with my Tmag Tour Preferred's for the hell of it.

That's just the stock white Srixon and by fluke Canada MGS badge and bag tag matched perfectly.
