Has anyone purchased products because of the MGS Reviews?


Rickp

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this has been done B4 or even if this is the right place for this.

Over the months I've been in this Forum I've read many reviews from a lot of Spy's and also the official MGS reviews. I'm curious if anyone has purchased products or at least looked carefully at items because of the positive reviews.

I have bought equipment and used the reviews to help me decide on which to buy.

Such as Ping G400 irons, Ping Pioneer golf bag, Odyssey #7 Oworks and a couple of different balls.

Anyone else?

I wouldn't have ever heard of Evnroll if it weren't for MGS. Based on the test results they've done, forum members, and some personal testing, I'm waiting for my custom ER2 which should be here any day now.

 

I use MGS as a base for recommendations, but I'll never buy something without testing it myself first.

While I haven't purchased anything based on a recommendation from mgs or any other golf publication, it has narrowed my focus down when I go to try out stuff during demo days. Of course being a lefty also has narrowed down my choices too, lol.

I was looking for a functional cart bag (my Club Glove) was 10 years old, and settled on the MGS #1 cart bag, the Ping Pioneer.  Absolutely love it...very functional, keeps the clubs separated and easy to pull, has more storage than I normally need except for strange weather.

My entire bag in my signature except for the loaner Titleist driver has come from reading MGS. Never would have considered Srixon until they won most wanted GI iron, and the Cobra F7 hybrid reviews really sold me on pulling the trigger there. The Srixon/Cleveland turf interaction and the MGS first look got me to ditch my Vokey wedges for the more forgiving Cleveland CBX wedges. And I went with an Edel putter after reading so many positive things from people on here about their fitting experience.

 

I am the poster child for the site I think. Was a 6-8 handicap when I got on here and have changed out my entire bag, and now down to a 1.5 because of that and a whole lot of short game practice.

I actually don't buy a lot of golf equipment.   MGS test has influenced what I look at when I am demoing clubs.  I am in a little better position than most since I am a tester and get to see and compare some of my numbers during the testing.

Yes, bought the Adams Blue irons a season or so ago because of the review. MGS was one of the few sites to give them any real attention.

I️ now play Snell balls a lot because of them. I've almost pulled the trigger on cobra f7 because of them but my wallet got in the way

I did. I bought the Ping Ketsch putter because of the MGS results from testing. I sold it within two months as I didn't achieve similar results... I have definitely demoed clubs because of the reviews and testing since, but haven't bought anything as a result though.

In my current bag my driver was the Most Wanted a number of years back. Even though it wasn't a formal review I bought my fairway wood because so many guys here raved about Tour Exotics - they were right BTW - silly easy to hit and long - several shaft options their fairways should be on anyone's list to try. Likewise my hybrids while not reviewed came as recommendations from several forum guys as a good value on a used hybrid.

 

My wedges, putter and irons are all in my bag as the result of reviews that I was chosen for.

While not at the same time I was fit for every club in my bag as well as the Pro VI ball. I use the chrome soft x ls on my league course.  It has much softer softer greens than the club that I belong to. 

I’m on a mission to shoot my age - lifetime lowest round is 66 and I’m currently 67.

Yep. Snell balls, because I probably wouldn't have heard of them. Also, my Mizuno 5 wood. Because of being a tester for the JPX-EZ driver and 3 wood I ended up buying the 5 because it just simply works for me.

Can't say that I have. But before I make my next one I'll read the blog reviews if there are any and search through the forum first.

I had forgotten about the Snell MTB balls. Would never have heard of them if not for here. Most people at my course still have no idea about them.

 

"You're playing a what?" 

 

After a couple of holes I get more serious questions about them.

Absolutely! I had Cobra Fly-Z irons in my bag which came in 2nd in 2015 GI test (I didn't want TMags) and my Datrek bag which was an MGS winner. The Cobras are some awesome GI irons, the MGS results were spot on. But I am having some Nike nostalgia problems and decided to put them back in play. My putter was based off of the Ketsch dominance---had to have some TR grooves in the bag.

That's quite an endorsement!!

 

As for me, I bought the Srixon Z565 Driver based on the Most Wanted Testing results.  I recently ordered an MLA  putter based on the reviews and the 50% discount offered to MGS members.
