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

I am beginning to believe your entire web site is a scam and a sham! You're merely a schill for the manufacturers to sell more of there golf equipment.  It's impossible to become a tester for any of your offerings and you completely ignore the senior golf playing population, which probably plays more golf per year than any other demographic.  I must admit, I am totally and thoroughly disappointed with your website, your design, and especially how you pretend to pose as a legitimate source of valid information.  Let's see your response to this negative review of your web site.

While Sam said it very well, I’ll be more blunt. 
 

Did you read the first post of this thread?  I’m betting the answer is No and here is why

9 posts a year and No profile picture!!!  

Complete your profile with a picture and get engaged and you have a very high chance of getting chosen to test but keep doing what your doing and you are gonna be very upset and disappointed.  The mods are very open about how testers are selected and had you took the time to read the first post you would know that.

... The MGS website and this MGS forum are two completely separate entities. And as a young 69 yr old, this forum is filled with golfers of all ages but certainly plenty of seniors and "completely ignore the senior golf playing population" could not be further from the truth. Plenty of seniors, including myself, have done testing with no interference from the OEM that in every case I have seen want honest reviews from real golfers so sham and scam is 100% baseless. 

I can easily name 1/2 dozen Senior Testers.

Fair to have your opinion. However couldn't be further from the truth. Unfortunately if you haven't taken the time to read the thread or look at the several testimonials from the years and years of testers I am really at a loss as to what to tell you or say. 

In the end the forum is a great place and getting involved can provide any member with so much information and value to those who choose to read it get engaged. If that's not you then okay, however given the wealth of information in this thread on how testers are chosen all your answers are there. Hopefully you are able to have a more positive view on the forum, but if your post is truly how you feel it will be awfully difficult to change your mind.

Well I'm a senior golfer and have been chosen to select product more than once. I'm pretty sure if you read more of the forum you would have realized the large range of ages and handicaps and you wouldn't  have made unsubstantiated comments like you did.

There seems to be a senior tester in almost every test. Why? Because being retired allows them more time to test equipment.

Just this year! Guys like yourself are here all the time and are the reason for the culture of the forum.

Good pointers, joined the forum but never participated other than applying for the signups. I guess it's fair that it's not totally randomized, hopefully i get to test a product out sometime soon!

I know that Columbus and Cincinnati are about two hours apart but every year there is an Ohio get together. A bunch My Golf Spies from the Ohio area just getting together to play golf and have fun. Do a search for it in the forum and maybe you might be interested next time it comes around.

Amazing how no matter how big we make the posts, put it in the title or anything else the basics are just ignored because ppl want free stuff.

Probably doesn’t help that the Twitter and Facebook promotions for the test say “Retweet and tag 2 friends to test this” Link to the blog site not the application thread. Seems to go directly against the MGS ethos around accuracy in golf advertising.
