Whenever I've been selected I've asked the moderator what he would prefer. Sometimes the OEM wants unfitted because that's how most people buy.

 

Other times the OEM wants us to use the online fitting tool and other times fitting is fine.

 

Whenever I'm selected I'm game for what the test calls for.

 

These tests are amazing opportunities but they are like being an employee - the boss sets the terms of the test.

 

That's how I view it at least.

 

Thanks for the opportunity MGS and Ping!

Taylor Made Sim2  10.5 (Opened 1 click) Ventus Blue 5  R flex

Ping G410 5-9 wood  Alta 65 R flex

Wilson D7 forged 6-GW -  Mamiya recoil 460 R flex

Edison Wedges 54 and 59 KBS Tour Graphite 80's

EVNRoll ER 5

Titleist Pro VIx optic yellow with revkev stamped on them

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

Thanks MGS! So stoked to be part of such a great team of Spies! I'm certain we will all do our best to a provide thoughtful and informative review on a product line that is eagerly anticipated by our community.

 

We are very excited about this group.. Three established vets who have rocked this site with their reviews and thoughts in the past and one young gun (in forum age) that I can't wait to hear thoughts from.

 

I already own the Max but will still follow this one with great interest.  

I'm excited to learn some new words after I read your 3 stages  :lol:

Exactly my thoughts as well.   But we'll have to hope he squeezes them all in two stages.   That's the format for 2018, only 2 stages for all reviews.   But of course any continued input and thoughts from the testers down the road is always appreciated.

Sorry Rev, you're post came in after I started typing my last reply and I didn't see it.  It certainly wasn't a slight!

 

Really looking forward to your thoughts on this, having been on a testing panel with you in the past, I appreciated the thoughts and guidance you gave this newbie tester!!

I'm always amazed when I get selected to test something. There are so many great folks on this site. It must be brutal for the staff to choose.

 

Thanks for choosing us this time out. I love the team you put me on. Let's go get them guys!

As an FYI I had no idea that I had been selected when I made this post. I was simply stating how I've approached every test and my appreciation to MGS and my forever favorite OEM Ping for putting their trust in forum members.

 

Ping is my forever favorite because of the Eye 2 irons and Eye 2 5 wood. I have games Ping equipment that didn't work for me too. I'm thinking this one will but we will see - can't wait to find out.
