What do you want to talk to MGS staff about?


Recommended Posts

Looking for some advice. I have been playing with clubs with Regular Plus shafts, which have been great, but have gotten a smidge to stiff for me. After asking around, it looks like new clubs would actually be a better buy than reshafting. So, for probably my last club purchase, what will be more important, club head or shaft? Also, would a game improvement iron, with the right shaft, work just as well as super game improvement? I've been a Ping guy and like the looks of the G425s, the 710s I guess are pretty long, so maybe they would be better as I get older. Or, a different club maker than those.? I trust you guys, so any advice would be greatly appreciated.

During the podcast regarding the ball test months back, Tony said that one thing that stood out to him was the trajectory of different dimple patterns. He said an article on that would be fourth coming. My interest is still here. I'm using a launch monitor a lot this winter, but I know that it considers every ball to have the same simple pattern. I'm curious if it gives some balls better flight then they would actually have, and conversely of it would give other balls worse flight then they would have.

I would be curious to see this too. And more to it would different dimple patterns have benefits for players who may have different needs for certain spin profiles.

Being bit of a math geek, I’d love to see statistical significance/confidence information on review results.  I think we may find that we are thinking one product is better than the other when statistically it’s just noise.  It may murky many of the results/ conclusions made in these tests, but at least they will represent the truth behind the numbers much better.  To get to statistical sign I can’t results you may find that some testing may need to be expanded (more subject and more shots)

Nobody can answer this. For club or shaft it’s neither, but rather the combo of them. With that said shafts don’t nearly have the impact that most people think they do.

as for club type it depends on what works best for you. It could be that neither work best because of weight, look or something like turf interaction

Can we get a little feedback on what is being done with this thread?  It's been up for about 6 months and I think there have been a lot of good ideas and questions brought up here and unless I missed it I haven't seen any type of response or interaction.

Certainly don't expect a response to every post but I figured we would have seen something come up in a NPG or an article written...
