2023: Want To Be a MGS Forum Tester? Read Here!


Message added by GolfSpy_APH,

DO NOT APPLY WITHIN THIS THREAD FOR TESTING

Want to make your own review on a product and follow our testing template? This is a generic template to follow, however uses the same star rating system that any of the "official reviews" will have for this season and moving forward. (half stars are okay as well). The generic template gives you the opportunity to be a little more creative while following the same general template we will use for any and all official tests.
Here it is: Member Review Testing Template

Please please use the search function before creating a new thread as many of these products/reviews can be posted into existing threads. We can add in a front end message like this one to the top of the thread linking your review to make it more visible on request as well. This helps us keep the forum cleaner and without too many repeating threads. 

Have more questions? Reach out to myself @GolfSpy_APH or any of the other mods via our staff page: Forum Staff 

2023 Update Post: HERE

For more information and data we have an independent study that was done by a member which can be found: HERE!

Reminds me of a story a teacher friend told me many years ago.   On the day of a test for a group of seniors in hgh school

She handed out the test that said right up front.

Read ALL instructions before beginning.

1) Put your name at the top left hand  corner

2) Put todays date in the top right hand corner

3) Do not answer any of the first 9 questions, leave them blank

4) For question 10, answer it.  Thansk for the esay A

 

She said, NO ONE got an A and out of 26 students only 11 got both the name and date parts correct.

LOL..What do they say Reading is fundamental.

I would have thought the super big do not apply here would be close to enough, but there will always be those looking to just get free gear. 

Just look at the Nippon sign ups. About 450? So not bad, but nothing crazy. Compare that to Sub70 where we had 4000. Did anyone else notice that there was no IG post for Nippon? Also the blog post had 0 comments as it was buried by other news that day.

Main point IG brings on thousands of empty signups which is great for numbers and we hope that a few will read the beginning of this and get hooked, but the majority will see the word test and think here is sign up and not read anything about the actual how.

I've been lucky enough to be selected a couple of times.  If those people understood the level of effort it requires to do the review properly, they would never volunteer.  This is not a complaint in any way, rather a compliment to all of the other testers who have done a great job in the past.  I hope I manage to live up to the expectations.

Great point Dave!  Fortunately we've had (or at least that I've seen) very few really poor efforts from testers.  But I think we can credit a good portion of this to the staff doing a good job selecting testers.

I’m on MyGolfSpy all the time, looking at everything here. This site is one of the reasons I looked at the Tommy Armour Impact No 2 putter, and after testing it, decided to purchase it. I would love to be involved in the testing and review phase on this site.
