I may or may not be going in blindly on graphite shafts for irons, but not MMTs

Obviously, big ticket items are fun to read about. But there are small ticket items I would love to see, also: More DTC brands. I think the Sub70 test last year was wildly successful. Would lo

Would love to see a company do a utility iron + hybrid test. Each tester gets both clubs in a similar loft and then testing centers around on course performance comparisons 

Just gonna leave this one here....Will more than happily test a SIMULATOR

One length iron set....

there are always a few guys asking questions, curious but hesitant to take the leap.  Gra five or six and put them in a full set from L wedge to hybrid and have them play a set amount of time.  Maybe test a few skills like how does it impact their bunker play...

but they have to be folks who’ve never tried them before.
 

also, I’ve got cobras but it’d be nice to see mixing it up with another manufacturer of single length irons.

+1 for MMT test if Mitsubishi could get involved in a remote fitting process that would be a sick test! I know a lot of people are curious about graphite shafts and some of us are pulling the trigger pretty blindly *wink wink you know who you guys are*

I went in blind on an i500 3i with the 125tx and it was love at first range session...

@GolfSpy MPR

I'm going a different direction.  1 want and 1 test:

I want a pay wall, or a patreon option that gives some more behind the numbers numbers. Like a subscription version of TRUEgolffit. but for more clubs and balls than just driver. Let me put in that I'm a sweeper with a xx mph 7i that tends to draw the ball and see which testers were closer to those stats and what worked best for them. 

The Most Wanteds are awesome, but still this years Driver test had like 30 drivers. The Epic Speed has the highest chance of being good for the most people and so I tested it, but I just don't have time to test all 30 models and maybe the 27th on the list would have been the best for me because the 2 testers with my swing attributes did great with it but it sucked big time for everyone else. I never even test it.

I think that mostly exists with truegolffit, but get that program expanded to the rest of the clubs and balls. Let me subscribe to it for the year, and let me see which testers I'm most like.  Pay wall it, freeze it in carbonite, don't feed it after dark, whatever, but sign me up and take my money 😃

 

But since you want a real test... test Maltby products vs the big boys. I've never hit one, but are they just as good? Can an good old fashion club fitter make you a better set of clubs that getting the set of the newest whatever? If it is a cost issue, PM me and I would be willing to provide the funds to add the equivalent Maltby product to every test for this year. I know Sub70 puts out good stuff, and I would guess Maltby does as good or better? but I don't know.

Would love to see more of the Direct to consumer companies and how they perform against the big boys. Ex: New Level , Haywood ect. As a Sub 70 iron owner I know they can be legit!

Here is another off the wall/Outside the Norm, its actually more than one but kind of close,,,,,,,

1) "Tour Issue" VS Of the rack head test- Let's put it to a test and to bed, IS there really is a difference ? 

2) High end /$$$$ shafts VS "working man's" shafts- Who do they REALLY benefit the most? Is there REALLY a difference? 

 

Come on guys! STIR THE POT !!!!!

I would like to test different grips and different options size, soft/hard, oversize or under .. I feel like that’s something that can be a big part in the golf equipment that gets overlooked

I think having stuff on the techy side tested is really cool - like the Exputt system last year. Those are the items I feel I research as much (if not more) than clubs before buying, so any additional reviews and experiences to read through are very valuable to me!

Changed my mind after an awful day,,,,,,,,,,,,

 

SOCKS, seriously, I have found the one's which are cool, don't have much cushion, those that do, well, are a bit hot and get soggy, also the seam on the toes,,,, which stay up for after several washings,,,,, if you have suggestions, let me know,,,,
