I switched to a ping g425 this summer and while I loved the forgiveness it just wasn’t the club (did keep me in the fairway). I ended up dropping back to my titleist 983k (partially bc my brother wanted the ping) that’s 20+ yrs old bc I can still bomb it and feel in control. I tested the stealth and was ready to pull the trigger (even got a shaft for it ready to go) but got myself curious about the burner mini. I’d go for the burner no doubt if they had a 9.5 or less loft. So currently I’m basically in driverless limbo. I game a callaway steelhead plus 3 wood that I’ve tried to replace over the years but nothing can take that beast out of the bag. My best drive this season came on hole #4 of my home course. It’s a 390 par 4 semi dog leg left with a bunker on the left side designed to prevent you from cutting the corner. Trees line both fairways and a shot that’s straight but too long is in the woods. Against my usual judgement and feeling like I was swinging well I brought out the driver and decided to rip it, the most perfect baby draw right along the left tree line and well clear of the bunker. Left myself about 45 into the green. Definitely didn’t flub the approach fat and have to scramble for par (I did). I don’t know that you should pick me, there may be other more deserving gamers out there but if you do, I know I’ll provide an honest objective review that will help others struggling in big stick limbo and need a relatable experience to add a piece to the bag.

Kudos to @StrokerAce and @GolfSpy SAM for sharing (and  caring 😉)! And also to @GolfSpy_APH for setting up this additional testing opportunity!!

Years ago I was able to participate in a club test .. my first .. and afterwards had asked if there were any sort of "clearing house" - other than the classifieds - to pass on the tester club(s) to another forum member...

So my suggestion is to see if this "Play It Again" opportunity might be made into a more regular thing..??

 

Agree!  We have a large community and a lot of us "test" different products from shafts to clubs all the time.

Tis the season of giving!  This is a pretty cool way to pay it forward too!

I've been a huge Callaway fan for years especially their irons and balls so when the Paradym Driver came out, I had to try a couple at the local golf store.  I wanted to like it but felt like it wouldn't outperform my old Taylor Made driver.  Now I'm an old golfer with average swing speeds 86-92 so maybe this had an impact on my experience.  I'm still a fan but waiting for another opportunity.

Have Fun!!

Awesome opportunity for another member, and gestures like this one is what makes MGS much different and better than the rest.

Well said!

I enjoy the story this driver’s had already! Good luck to all who apply!

Wow, really cool. and very generous for those passing this on. Honestly, I have never been able to justify the cost of any of these top end drivers based on my skill level and all he other factors. I have swung them at stores occasionally, but it really didn't seem to show me much. I could have if I really wanted to, but just never put the money into it I guess. Since I took a few lessons last couple years I got to where I am regularly in the mid 80's low 90's consistently, and have been curious if something like this would make a difference. But as many have already said, I am in a no golf zone in Illinois right now, so I couldn't do much with this, at least on a course till May.

That being said, I would love to test this thing. I currently have an RBZ, even got that used when my Callaway Diablo (only decent driver I think I ever bought new, had it for years) driver head went flying off into the water on a shot LOL I found it at a golf store and just got it cause it matched my irons. I hit it pretty well so just stuck with it.

If it makes any difference, I just signed a lease for a building yesterday to open a golf sim business with a trackman, so I am certainly diving in the deep end here, and expecting to improve my own game in the process (I better LOL) and could do some pretty thorough testing, but that probably won't be done till sometime mid Jan. 

I'll be posting more about the sim business once we get the build done and get closer to opening. Starting construction next week. BTW, I got the idea for the business from this forum, so obviously, this place literally may have completely changed my life. At 63 no less 😁 So yea, I would love to test this thing. But whomever does get the chance to do it, enjoy, it is pretty cool how this entire community works, glad I stumbled upon this wonderful place.

Cheers all.

I'd jump on this if it were 10.5*

@dlow206 did something similar a few years back and let me try the Motore he was selected to test. The one with the sick MGS logo on it! It didn't work out so I sent it back to him when I had him re-shaft my wedges. Stuff like this is what makes this community such a solid place to participate. One of the few places on the Internet that I don't hate visiting, lol.
