Not really, only my driver, driver shaft, putter, irons, bag, umbrella, wire brush, balls, shoes, GPS, pull cart and gloves.

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 da

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.

 

Also looking at the Evnroll ER1 or 2 to replace my 11 year old Yes! Tracy.

Snell golf balls and I bought a Ping Glide wedge (it's since been donated to a friends bag since winning the set of Cobra clubs)

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.

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.

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.

To buy golf clubs based on recommendations is committing golf suicide.  I don't care what anyone says, swing the clubs firsthand and get fitted.

Not clubs... yet. Nah, I take that back. When I got back into golf I found the clubs I ended up with on here, with amazing reviews. Golf balls though. MBP got me to step out of my Titleist obsession and find Srixon and Wilson balls. This place is full of a bunch of good stuff. You never know what you'll find.

Turns out I just did. Today I bought a Cobra Fly-Z+. It was the 3rd top pick Most Wanted Driver of 2015. I based my decision largely on MGS reports and reviews on the Blog and in the forum. I've seen the driver many times and also thought it looked great and setup nicely. We'll see.

I may have posted in here before about something else, can't recall. But recently I bought an MLA putter based on reviews here and the discount being offered.

Would have purchased an Evnroll, but then was lucky enough to have been chosen for testing

I'd disagree to a certain point. I always prefer to try before buying, but sometimes it isn't possible for me. I took an educated gamble on Scor wedges based on reviews and comments on MGS. The price was worth the gamble, as from the review they sounded like they would suit my game.

 

Buying purely due to one person saying something is great is perhaps ill advised, but if there is a weight of positives from a range of reviewers it's more likely to work out, especially for lower cost items.

 

Most people on here who have purchased due to reviews on MGS have probably tried them before buying. I'm looking seriously at Mizuno JPX900 Tours, which I might not have considered if not for the review. I will definitely go through a full fitting if I do purchase.

I am in a little different position than most people reading the testing results. Since I am part of the most wanted tester group I get to try and touch most anything that is tested in Yorktown at the testing headquarters. This enables me to see what works best for me and not the group as a whole since I can see my results on the launch monitor.

 

Time for some more evaluation for bag changes as testing for 2018 is officially under way. Looks like there will be some different stuff in the mix this year based on my wandering around the lab, peeking in boxes, and removing head covers. Wish I could post some pics but some of it is still under pre release embargo. Great way to geek out on new golf equipment!

So now my wheels are spinning......

 

 

 

During the live raffle, Sam said he's got about 80ish testers on his roster. Where are they? I hardly see anyone besides yourself post that say they're part of the group. I'd imagine some are Golf Spy staff but the majority would be average Joes.

I have met a few of them during testing sessions and during the thank you party. I know that some are really into golf and equipment like myself and others are just people that come in to test that are members of local golf clubs. Perhaps they aren't into posting on golf forums in the end it isn't an answer that I know. Most are in the hampton roads area of Virginia. From a staff perspective I think Sam is the only on that participates in testing, but that may change this year since they hired a new person to help run the testing. The goal is to have everyone local so they can ensure the same testing protocols are followed and. It have to ship stuff all over the place.
