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!

Why don't people read !!!!

 

Frustrating for reg users to see these comments....how do the mods cope ?

Really it is okay. 

There is only so much we can do. The title of the thread, the front end message spells it all out and is as big and bold as can be. However many will read what they want to and ignore much else. We try to make it clear, but only so much that we can do. 

Trust me we have significantly larger other priorities than the pick me pick me comments, which are explicitly stated not to be posted in this thread.

Welcome!

I'll pile on here, this is one of the most considerate and respectful forums I've ever been a part of, so please join in with your opinions and experiences.  Another thing to add, do not underestimate the amount of effort that it takes to do a good review.  It involves a big investment of time and attention to do it right.  I've been lucky enough to be selected for a few opportunities, and each one is both a lot of fun, and a good bit of stress trying to get it right.  Yeah, I've been "given" some free gear, but that gift comes with a responsibility to honestly evaluate and document my experiences with a new bit of gear, to take good photos or videos, to write clearly, basically to justify the trust the mods have had in me.  Welcome to MGS, I'll watch for your posts.

We are creeping up on testing season and we have many new members who will want to get in on the testing action. It isn't that difficult to be selected, but we do look for certain things from our members. If you are curious what they are you can read the post that is 2 up from this one and it will give you a quick shot of what we look for. 

For more in depth please go to the first page and read the long winded, but very thorough post which was done last year. It goes through all the ins outs and more to help your efforts in getting selected!

Darn it, @GolfSpy_BOSbeat me to the fake joke application.

 I'm more impressed by reviews that point out issues and concerns vs those that just fawn over every aspect of the gear. Hopefully this will be a solid year for reviews... and on time deliveries! 

That's like google or other reviews - I always go to the least rated reviews and comments - 1 & 2 stars. That generally gives me a better understand ing of what to expect.

Say what you will about online forums and user testing, but I've always enjoyed the reviews here - both the ones I've done as well as the ones I've read from other members. When folks don't like something, they are open and honest about it. That aspect of reviews here gave me the confidence to be critical in a review I did a number of years ago, knowing that I wouldn't be shouted down or getting PMs about saying negative things about the OEM that gave us free gear to use and review. There are no unicorns out there in gear-land, and if I'm spending my money on something I want to make sure it's going to work FOR ME, and honest reviews from other golfers in my skillset are hugely important.

I agree. I've stated in other threads I place more credence on the reviews here for golf equipment than on any marketing or 'testing' sites. As an example I was reading a  golf 'news' articles on the best golf balls - which was really a Callaway ad. .

I am going to try my hardest to hold out of other opportunities in case these come down the line, but that’s easier said than done when so many great tests are offered 🤩
