Do you vary the wedges you use (bounce/lofts) based on a particular course turf characteristic or stick with a general setup?

Change just one or more than one if you do change?

What driver would you recommend for some one who's swing speed can be timed with a sand clock (83 mph)?

Currently using a Cobra with a slight draw bias, but the new Cleveland xl looks interesting.  Genetically incapable of spending $800 for a driver, so xxio you're fired, but it sounds like some of the tech is being handed down.  Any recommendations would be appreciated.

What is your name? What is your quest? What is the capital of..................ooops, sorry my mind wander off there a bit.

Okay, what's the deal with spine alignment in a golf shaft? Does it really matter? Honma has shaft adapters that allow the user to make adjustments to the head without changing the spine alignment, what other OEM's do this?

Thank you..................................... J.B.

Considering a new never used club given to me that duplicates one already in my bag, it occurred to me that it is possible that a new club has a lifespan that can be expected through use as it imparts kinetic energy to a stationary potential energy ball/tee/turf. 

The impact must have some effect on the club on a sliding scale of a weak club that just implodes leaving the ball unmarred to a strong club that would not scratch leaving the ball ripped in cover and split if hit hard enough.  (The musing of a physics teacher looking at extremes for sure.)

Looking at my older "experienced" clubs that do work well for me, it occurs to me that perhaps they are somewhere on a life cycle between untouched to destroyed and doing well in the near-untouched end of that continuum. 

In your experience, is this something that has a bearing on considering club management and club selection?

They are called fiducials.   They are placed on the club head to enable the sensors on the launch monitors to capture club head data.  Page 12 of the GC Quad manual will show you the configurations you can use:  https://www.foresightsports.com/sites/default/files/files/GCQuad_User_Manual.pdf

Why is the head of a putter heavier for a 33” putter than a 34” or 35” putter?

Funny you asked this, I asked this to a club fitter, don't know how true but he said a 35 inch with 330 grams and a 33 inch with a 360 grams will feel the same weight when used.

If you are asking about forum testers then someone posted an answer to that question.

  If you are talking about the testers involved in doing most wanted then there would be a different answer.  Most wanted testing is done in Yorktown Virginia at the MGS facility.  You would need to commit to going to the facility over several weeks to test each club category.  They do have some playing expectations based on the clubs you would be hitting during that test.

Hey Charmel, not a question just a response. These are for accurately tracking Club Head data. They put those on specific parts of a club to track all the club data. The cameras can then give club speed, path, where the ball was struck, etc.!
