2018 Official Forum Review-TrueGolfFit and Global Golf U-Try

Recommended Posts

I am the same as you with Callaway drivers,  but I came away very impressed with the Sub Zero after hitting it during this years testing.  Light years better than the rogue in my opinion.  Although the Srixon was my Most Wanted winner this year,  I would still give the Callaway a try to see if I could dial it in for optimal numbers


Srixon was my number 2 but there was no yardage gain only accuracy. I’m not dropping 500 on an extra fairway every other round (if that) I will at the 4 yard mark - that’s close to half a stroke per round. Assuming it’s a reasonably accurate and consistent 4 yards. If I’m reading the data correctly the Epic Flash Sub Zero should get me close to 6 yards over my Ping.

I know a place where I can get a reasonable fitting and walk out with that driver - someone gave me a $200 visa gift card - that plus my current driver should get me out the door for around $200 - assuming the numbers pan out.

I took true golf fit for a spin last night - the results were interesting - Epic Flash Sub Zero -
 
It’s interesting because I’ve never had success with a Callaway driver before but it’s also been a long time since I’ve tried one.
 
I am also curious as to how many years worth of driver results are currently in. I really like getting the shaft recommendation as well given that my top choice has a number of shaft options that come “stock.” I didn’t get the loft though. That’s a bit disturbing. It seems to me that the sub zero has its CG forward to kill spin so I need to loft up.
 
If I decide to pull the trigger on one (I’m leaning yes) I will go to my fitter and see what he recommends in regards to loft and settings. I have an iron fitting at this week’s Ping demo day. No intention of pulling the trigger and irons yet, just want to find my new normal with my increased club head speed. More than likely going sub 70 there as spending a lot of money on irons is crazy - Getting the right iron type is what matters - who cares about the brand. Drivers (and putters) on the other hand vary much more because of design theory differences and the ability to build in more technology.
 
I’d love to know if last years drivers are still in the system. I would think that it would be worth while to have three years worth of drivers loaded in.

That was definitely one of my concerns as well (loft, weight settings if applicable and shaft recommendations with flex) TGF just showed a stock 9 degrees driver so I didn't know if that was my true recommendation or just a stock image. Never in my wildest dreams did I think to play a driver at 9 degrees (Taylormade M3) plus with a much heavier shaft, but in the end to my surprise I ended up bagging it, I did notice that I was definitely fading it more, so it is a work still in progress.

Just a quick update now that spring is *slowly* starting. Still loving the C300. After a few range sessions, I lofted up from 9° to 10°, and it made a HUGE difference. After lofting up, I was averaging 280+ off the tee and I even hit a 325 yard BOMB on a 400 yard par 4. We won't mention that I proceeded to miss the green... 😬, we'll just focus on the drive. 

I'll post another update in a month or so, after I get 10 or so more rounds under my belt.

      How good can a $299 Driver be?  How much technology can a company offer for that price?    TourEdge's EXS driver was recently named My Golf Spy's Most Wanted Driver in Value.   A $299 price for a driver is enough to get anyone's attention.  But upon  a closer look, you see a great looking driver that offers a lot of the same technology offered in much higher priced offerings, such as  Roll Face technology, adjustable hosel and interchangeable weights just to name a few. 
      So as we often do, we are turning to three of our members who we know will provide a well informed and written account of the driver and what it did for them.  The chosen testers will get a driver to their specs to review and keep.   
       

      How to be chosen:  
      Open to all US Residents who play Right-handed
      Please follow the instructions below exactly.
      First Name/State of Residence
      Current Drive specs  Model/loft/shaft/Flex
      Your handicap and  driver swing speed, and do your regularly use any sort of LM for data collection
      Have you played a Tour Edge driver before, and what was your experience. 
      We'll pick our testers sometime next week, so check back and good luck.
      -------------------------------------------------
      Testers announced!
      @03trdblack, @ZJBogey2, @Badams69 will be putting this beauty to the test.
      Announcement below...

      How do you improve on a line of drivers that had a member of the family win the coveted Most Wanted Driver in 2018?  That's certainly a tough task for any group of engineers.  But the really smart guys in the lab coats in the rooms where nobody is allowed to go in Phoenix are betting they have done just that.   And they have gone into uncharted waters to do so. 
      PING has been if not the last , then most certainly the last major equipment company to produce a driver with movable weights.   For years PING has stated that it had enough technology built into each version of it's drivers that you need not worry about unscrewing plugs, or sliding bars, or inserting cogs etc.   They had done all the work for you and the driver would work just fine, and they did thank you very much. 
      Well take a close look at the rear of the new G410 Plus pictured below.  You'll see three possible ports for a movable weight, center for neutral, on the heel for draw bias and out on the toe for fade bias.   People have finally gotten what they have clamored for. 
      And for those who prefer a driver with a bit of a draw bias and don't need to change if from that, well PING hasn't forgotten you, as it made the G410 SFT--Straight Flight Technology--and it otherwise has all the same technology.  
       

      Will this movable technology along with all the hosel adjustment that can moved into eight different configurations make one of the best drivers on the market year in and year out even better?
      Well we're going to leave it to four dedicated and trustworthy and oh alright, it's OK to say-- LUCKY as well-- members of the My Golf Spy forum to test, play, review--and keep-- these drivers.  The members of the forum will anxiously be awaiting the results.   
      The testers will be getting these drivers pretty much the same time they will be hitting retail shelf's, so you will be among the very first consumers on the course with these incredible looking drivers. 

       

       
      HOW TO APPLY:
      in this thread - and ONLY in this thread - tell us the following:
       
      1. Your first name and home state or province. -US and CN eligible. 
      2. Your current handicap and driver swing speed
      3. Your current driver
      4. List whether you would like to review the G410 Plus or G410 SFT
      Pretty straightforward!

       
      Good luck, and we'll be announcing the testers in this forum early next week!
       
      WE HAVE AN ANNOUNCEMENT TO MAKE!

      Congrats to the following testers:
      @jlukes @fixyurdivot @tony@CIC @PING Apologist #9

      Great forum, great community, and I am sure one of the knowledgeable members has come across this question before (or, can point me in the right direction).  I have used the search bar some to pin point this topic to some effect, but haven't come across the answer that satisfies my curiosity.  I already know and understand a dynamic fitting and static fitting work best for shaft fitting and it's hard to beat a good (and patient) fitter.  
      My question pertains to online iron shaft fitting/recommendations from most of the shaft manufacturers and/or online fitting services: How relevant is a question regarding iron distance (say, 6i carry) when your current 6i loft and the set you are interested in purchasing is different?  I could ,theoretically, hit my 6i 170 yards using a 26* loft but only hit my buddies 6i 155 yards using 29*...these are just relative numbers to express a questionable point... with all other variables being the same (relatively speaking) but loft.
      My interpretation of the line of questions for iron shaft recommendation is that it is generating results based on flight and dispersion preferences along with swing speed/power/carry distance.  However, if my current 6i is 26* and is allowing me to move the ball 170yds down the fairway, how good is the online fitting tool going to be if the new set I am interested in has a more traditional loft to it?  Am I totally off base in this line of thinking?  Are the manufacturers shaft recommendations useless? 
      Again, I apologize if this has already been discussed ad nauseam.  Happy golfing!

      Spent a couple of hours this afternoon at the Tampa Bay Golffest event. A really nice though not especially large demo day event hosted by Tampa Bay Downs. Had a chance to hit some of the new offerings out there in the marketplace and some potential GolfSpy test candidates. 
      Hit several drivers. The new Mizuno ST, Ping G410, Wilson Cortex, and Cobra F9 Speedback. Keeping in mind it wasn't full fitting for each, but the reps did ask enough questions to get you close enough spec wise so you were hitting something close to your current gamer. Of the 4, my least favorite was the Mizuno, it just didn't have the same feel as the others. The Ping G410 just felt AWESOME. The Cobra felt good, like the ball was exploding off the face, but the ball flight was a little higher than my preference, and the ball was airborne for.....ever. The Cortex was a surprise. Felt good and solid, sound and ball flight were right there with all the others. I hit a smattering of irons, but wasn't focused enough on those to include data. The latest of the Mizuno JPX forged though was a very solid feeling club. In any case, I didn't put anything back on the rack thinking "boy that sucked" so be encouraged GolfSpy universe, there is some really good equipment coming out this year.
      Also spied some of the new Bridgestone e12 golf balls in the sale tent. I'm sure we are all waiting for the revelation of those testers (my fingers are crossed).
      Last, I got some Trackman style feedback on the effectiveness of the SuperSpeed training system (about to start week 9 for me). Participating in the skills contests, included 4 Trackman assessed shots with driver. With a mis-fit glove, no warm-up, no golf shoes, and a random selection of not my drivers to choose from, I got all 4 swings onto the grid with 3 going past 270 at 100mph. About a 15-20 yard gain from last season!! Still waiting on the promised email with the Trackman video/data and pro comparison.
      A pretty cool afternoon.
