RE: International Testing (Do Not Apply Within)


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

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.

Sorry, I was only trying to be funny. :) :D Don't be mad. :wub:

No worries. I thought maybe you had two residences and were getting ready to summer in Mexico

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.

Would have loved that... except that I bought the exact same LRF about a month ago :D

Ah...that might have been it.  I knew that it recently happened....  and I think a while back Kanoito (or something like that) was selected in Germany for something....

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.   ;)

 

 

 

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.

 

Then the people in the US would just complain. You can't satisfy everyone, and that's not MGS' job.

 

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.

 

I can't get stuff shipped to Hawaii that I'm WILLING TO PAY for, that's a real complaint. Whining that you're not eligible to be selected to be a forum tester, just makes it clear that you're only here for free gear. The fact that this thread had to be made is crazy in itself. Byproduct of the best MF forums on the internet blowing up I guess?

And I know for a fact he's still got a smile on his face.

 

My problem has been I'm too stupid to read the intro properly, and don't see if it's limited. The Precision Pro thread was really obvious that it was an international opportunity, which was great. 

 

I don't see any need for international only opportunities, mind you,something like the Cobra Connect Challenge in a Ryder/President's Cup type split could be fun to watch.

 

I imagine the vast majority of forum participants are from the USA. Maybe we can get MGS Stud to mine some data (now there's a challenge) to show where active members are from. I'm pretty sure there are more from Ohio than everywhere outside USA/Canada.

That may be a little bit outside of my access to the forum. Would need to be able to extract. I'd bet Big Tazz may be able to whip something up with his member map. Can't imagine there's too many inactive entries on that bad boy.
