See, I agree with most of this. The problem is that the OnePlus 7T, which would be the phone I prefer isn't part of their sale, it's just the 7 Pro with the pop-up. And I love the utilitarian Google approach, but Pixel 4 just isn't as spec rich, but Pixel 3 may be in the offering as may 3A. 

I hate Verizon because they have the different network from the rest and it stops me from going with phones i'd be happier with, like Nokia's new midrange and some of the other Chinese "flagship killers". Also, Huawei, but I blame economics and distrust for those not being available and that's all I say on that.

Yeah the 7T Pro isn't available in the US, but it's basically the same phone as the "regular" 7 Pro. The Pixel 4 was a fail, Google needs to step their shxt up. The Nexus 6p was probably my favorite phone I ever bought, which I think was made by Huawei, but yeah they're donezo now. I think you'll be really happy with a Pixel 3/A or a 7 Pro!

Before you pull the trigger mate, check out Grilla Grills Silverback. A bit less expensive bit, IMO, a better unit and their customer service can't be beaten.

You may want to consider a Traeger pellet grill also.

Ever since my first smart phone, I was a Samsung homer, starting with the Galaxy S Captive, then S3, and S5. Until knox became a thing, the first thing I always did was root the phone and install custom ROMs and I would always pick ROMs that were more minimalist in nature (pure Android) and allow me to remove all the crap AT&T installed and do real ad blocking. Once knox hit, and I broke the screen on my S5, I started researching alternative brands. At the time, Best Buy was selling Huawei phones for very cheap because they were trying to grab some market share in the US - I got a lot of bang for the buck in terms of specs and it wasn't even the top of the line Huawei. Now I have an S9+ but still use the Huawei as may Arccos device because it has phenomenal battery life, even with the screen full bright to see on the golf course without reading glasses. I'm sure there are plenty of good Chinese brands, but as you stated....

The other issue is the GSM type of phones that work on AT&T and T-Mobile and due to where I live being wed to Verizon and it's more limiting CDMA. Note 10 or Pixel 3A might be in the offing, I'm a one hander on the phone. I'll let you all know.

Not really looking for anything but I think I will buy 2 dozen Snell balls to try. Ifzi dont like I will throw them on CL. Used Callaway has a decent sale coming out so I might buy a used 60 degree low bounce wedge to experiment with. 

A local golf shop has a special event next week with some deals so making the 50 minute drive to check it out. I will also hit the MP 20s and 919 tours while Im there so maybe new irons? Actually trying to get some pounds of me so that will be my reward when I make that goal.

I like the Grilla.  What is it that you like about it that is better than the Rec Tec?  Both grills are superior to others IMO.  My one negative about the Rec Tec is it doesn't have a hopper dump, but I can live with that.  I will see what the Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals are for both.  Thanks!!

 

I like the hopper dump, as you mentioned. It's double wall construction, so cold outside temperatures don't bother it, plus their Alpha Smoke setting is very good at getting more smoke flavour. Also, their warranty is 4 years vs 2 year with the Rec-Tec.

I wanted to get an electric pushcart for my wife, none of them were on sale... the models we were checking were all around $2000.

Got 12 bottles of wine, a couple of bottles of Hendrick's gin, a bottle of Courvoisier XO, 3 bottles of 

Botucal Reserva Exclusiva Rum (this rum is the best I've tried, I even like it more than Zapaca) and 2 bottles of Jose Cuerco 1800.

The Rec Tec is 4 years now. The double wall is nice, but it’s not as cold here as Ohio. Can’t go wrong with either one really. Better than the Traeger for sure! The Silverbac is not that much difference in price than the Rec Tec if you go with the Alpha. I will see what deals are available tomorrow.

Are you looking for a smaller hand vacuum for quick little jobs?  Or a full stick vacuum for doing floors plus other things?
For a stick vacuum Dyson and Shark both have good ones.  I've seen deals on the DC10 and DC11 Dysons and a couple of sharks.  There is a new brand through Amazon getting some good reviews too, check out Tineco.
For a smaller true hand held vacuum...Do you currently have a battery power tool brand you use?  (i.e. Ryobi, Rigid, Dewalt, Milwaukee etc...)  I have a small hand held vacuum that just uses my tools batteries that I use a lot for smaller stuff in the garage.

SWMBO picked up a Dyson couple years ago best vacuum we have ever owned, that 52 years of vacuums.

I bought the EGO POWER+ 480 CFM Blower and I love it. https://egopowerplus.com/blower-480cfm/ It’s their smallest blower, they make several larger ones. I also bought a 5.0Ah battery and skipped the smaller ones, it lasts at least 45 minutes.

I also bought an EGO weedwacker, edger and hedge trimmer. Easily the best yard tools I’ve ever owned.

With the 5.0Ah battery I can weedwack, edge and blow with one battery and have lots of power left over.

There’s isn’t a big enough blower on sale in any of the Black Friday sales that I’m interested in.

I have an orthopedic doc appt next week across the street from Home Depot maybe I can get lucky with a Ryobi product that’ll do what I’m looking for.

All my flower, tree and bush beds are granite rock and I like to keep them clean as possible without the dead leaves. The 90 mph machine we have doesn’t have enough velocity.

Rick, I just bought a Ryobi Jetfan a few weeks ago at Home Depot. It's a hand held blower very powerful (160 mph) for $129. Our house is surrounded by about 20+ mature trees and this takes care of all the leaves. I highly recommend it.

That’s exactly what I’m looking for! I like the Ryobi products & customer service. I have 3 other lawn products and batteries so it will work well.

Good news update, HomeDepot came through and did end up offering the Rigid miter saw stand at half price, so picked up one of those.  Then ended up buying a Ryobi battery powered chainsaw for half off, a bucket of bungee cords and a 2pk of angle grinder cut off wheels just because they were a good deal.

From Amazon I got some iTunes gift cards that were 20% off just because it's a deal and we'll end up using them.

Last stop was my course clubhouse.  They have all remaining apparel for employee cost so I ended up with some hats for myself and my two boys, a couple shirts and a FJ short sleeve rain jacket.

Done with black friday and now it's time to pack for a Disney trip tomorrow.

my wife and i stopped into golfgalaxy today to perhaps look at a birthday present  - she ordered me a 410 26* hybrid with a Tensi shaft. Can't wait for spring to try it out. I have it's brother a 22* with the same shaft and love it.
