RE: International Testing (Do Not Apply Within)


Recommended Posts

Well said! Can't wait to see how long it takes someone to apply within though! 🙂

I just saw the Mizuno driver was North America only, I can't seem to be able to see the text in different font! My bad, I thought I'd looked closely, obviously not close enough, probably too excited.

Greetings gang ...

 

I want to place this thread up here so we can clarify a few things about our Community Forum Review program, particularly when it comes to international testing. 

 

We sincerely wish every review opportunity could be open to the entire planet, but often the OEM's have separate and individual divisions around the world, and one marketing department has different plans and goals from another. For example - Wilson Golf in North America ISN'T Wilson Golf UK, which ISN'T Wilson Golf Germany. Even though it's essentially the same company, they have their own sandbox in which they play, with their own goals and marketing programs.

 

We wish it were different, but alas, it's not our call.

 
Some have complained that we ignore the rest of the planet, which isn't really accurate. We've had several worldwide review opportunities over the past few years, ranging from PING to Bettinardi to ShotScope to ACCRA to many others, and we'll have more in the coming weeks. 
 
Lastly, and this one's kind of important - applying isn't the same thing as chosen, and entering doesn't mean you will be chosen. We'll get well over 1,000 applicants for the Mizuno driver review opportunity, for example, with only 4 drivers available, so....do the math!
 
Thanks for being a loyal reader and I very much hope you'll keep reading. We firmly believe - and I'm confident many of you will agree - there's more to MGS than just a .004% chance of being chosen to test a driver.   ;)

 

 

 

Any chance it could be noted in very large, flashing letters so dummies like me can see more easily that a review opportunity has geographical limitations?  

 

For some reason (perhaps a combination of excitement and stupidity) I struggle to see the limitation line.

 

I'll still be an interested reader of all reviews.

Will these irons help me towards a single handicap? If not will they help me beat my brother in law? (I'll settle for that).

I have a question > Suppose I am chosen on one of these threads as a (club) tester, and said item is earmarked US only, and my wife and I take a trip to Mexico, does that count as an International Tester and thus I need to send the item back?

 

 

:ph34r:

We ask for your home address as that's where we assume you will be doing most of the testing.

 

If you spend 6 months a year in Mexico and 6 Months in the US, then you would need to apply during a time you'll be able to recieve it in the US. As long as it's shipped to your US address, we don't care where the club is used as long as you meet the testing requirements.

 

When it's US only, that's per the OEM's direction for participants, mainly due to shipping.

a neat thing might be to have an "international only" / "non-US" testing opportunity.

that way the overseas guys & gals don't feel cheated and we get some different - and maybe unique - testing results here in the US.  Just an idea.

I agree with you, but do you know how many people in the US would whine and complain. e.g There is no reason to discriminate against people living in the US.

First - there are MORE than enough testing chances available for mgs members from the US

Second - it would not be discriminating against anyone....

I here you, but you all should be aware, the most recent testing Precision Pro NX7 was open to International, and there wasn't one International entry that met the basic requirements.   So while we will continue to keep them in mind when the OEM opens it to International, the chances of it being all international are pretty slim.    Just my current .02, not an official declaration.

...and there was an international selection!  Australia, I believe.

No they were all US, well One HI, but that still counts as the US.  There was indeed  an  Australia tester selected however in the  G700 irons,  previous to this one.
