I have sustained curiosity about the Axiom iron shafts, and would be interested in that review.

Also, I hope the forum keeps up the good work in exploring lower cost options in the launch monitor/home sim space.  Those have been very interesting and the tech keeps getting better/prices keep getting lower.

Working at getting better ... and very slowly getting there.

  •  :callaway-small: Paradym 🔹🔹🔹 8* (UST Mimaya MP5 40-L Otto-Phlex)
  •  :callaway-small: Rogue ST Max 3 & 5 Woods (:Fuji: MotoreX F1 7-S)
  • :callaway-small: Paradym X 4 and 5 Hybrid (:Fuji: MotoreX HB 7-S)
  •  :Miura: CB-57 4-P or Maltby TS3 (4-8)/TS4 (9-PW)/TS1 (GW) (shafts:  :projectx: LZ 6.0)
  • :cleveland-small: RTX6 Zipcore 53*, and 58* mid wedges (KBS High Rev 125)
  • :scotty-small: Special Select Fastback 1.5
  • :redrooster: Gloves
  •  :maxfli: Tour X Balls

Don't count my clubs!  Ha.  The 4 iron, 5 hybrid, and 53* Cleveland are in and out of the bag depending on mood, course, and moon phase.

I would say any irons, mainly because mine keep breaking lol So that would be cool to be apart of but also I saw this putter on instagram that was interesting. It was a build your own. They send the parts to it and you put it together. I haven't seen anything like that before. Also, I would like to see more training aids like the wrist one. Or can we do a review on the online coaches or is that to subjective?

Definitely more DTC brands for sure. A PXG test would be interesting however I’m not sure if they do that.  
 
I’d like to see more Cleveland testing along with a return from Wilson Staff. 
 
I don’t know how this could work, but some sort of fitted vs not fitted test would be really interesting. Not sure how the logistics of that would go, but it would be cool to see someone try something “off the rack” and get some stats, then go get fit and see the before and after. 

I love this. Almost exactly what I was thinking. DTC reviews are all over the maps sometimes and I’d like it to come from a trusted source.

Also the fitted vs off the rack is super fun premise.

I always like the DTC brand tests.  Shafts would be ideal but I know it's really hard to test for the masses when it can vary from player to player. 

Wedges are on my list this next year.

Fairway woods. Specifically 5 & 7 woods. I'm a 20 handicap. Pretty consistent with my driver, but struggle with my long irons and have a love/hate relationship with my 3 hybrid. Looking to replace it.

Hey u stole my idea. OK you said it 1st but I agree with you 🤣.  I may be wrong but the vast majority of reviews and testing I have seen over time revolve the 3 wood. a good 5 wood test would make me happy, I have a Ping 425 7 wood , dont hit a 3 wood well but think a 5 wood would work well for me.

First of all, thanks to Jamie and the team for an incredible 2023 for testing. It was absolutely mind-blowing.

I have a few thoughts that align with others above.

PXG, irons mainly but woods can be included.
Srixon, both irons and woods.
Mizuno, both Pro and JPX line of irons.
Fairway woods, specifically 5/7/9 woods.
Hybrids, not sure if we can get a bunch of brands to go head to head but that would be sweet.
Iron Shafts, although not sure how that'd be done since you need heads for it.
More DTC. Takomo now has woods to test. Supposedly Sub70 has a new driver coming in the Spring. Plus all their quality irons. Haywood has woods now too, along with more irons. New Level has really nice irons plus their hybrid and driving iron.
Online coaching options, from apps to video lessons, etc. That would be very interesting as many of us don't have access to good coaches everywhere, so the online option appeals to many of us.

I'm sure I can come up with more, but these are the ones that come to mind first.

Srixon or Mizuno Irons would be a huge bonus for 2024. I love reading through the irons tests on the forum and those 2 brands in particular are on my must try list for potential upgrade for the bag. But regardless I'm sure we have an epic year of testing lined up for 2024 and I can't wait!

Firdt of all, i have not even been halfway through all the tests from 2023! So many!

Repeating what most have suggested, and I'm sure the logistics side of things is way more complicated than some would assume.

Personally speaking, as a beginner(and inexperienced Golfer), the ability to learn through any indoor/outdoor practice or training aids is extremely beneficial.

Putaim system looked interesting. Swinglock type devices too. The stepboard was new too

Clubs- the DTC brands really are great opportunities on both sides of things. I understand you would want a more seasoned golfer for these, but the range of equipment was mind boggling this past year.

Drivers, wedges, and long Hybrids.  For me this would be my number 1 choice if given the chance. I don't know anyone who wouldn't relish that opportunity. 

 

As always, thanks for all you do MGS team!

 

WITB-Foremost 551's - 3w, 5w, 5-SW (circa 1998), Top Flite 460cc Driver, Adam's 7w, Warrior GW and 60⁰, Odyssey AI-One DB putter.

Just an old newbie golfer, trying to learn and improve 1 club at a time.

This is big! I agree with all that @Rob Person, but thanks is the most important to me. 

I love the forum testing, and honestly wouldnt be that picky because this forum has me already thinking different then i did before thanks to the testing. So im excited about any and all test honestly, and even more thankful for all that it produces.

Curious @GolfSpy_APH , I know it was mentioned about scaling back in 2024 on the QUANTITY of tests available to members. Will MGS be expanding the field of persons needed per testing opportunity as well?

Speaking for a strong personal bias, but the new Mizuno irons (240 series) and the T24 wedges would be intriguing.  I know Callaway is putting out a new line of golf balls that could make for a good test.

I also thought of something else! I’d like to test Ghost Golf bags and most of their products! I also would like to see something like bushnell or full swing kit. And then maybe rangefinders. Because eventually I’m gonna wanna upgrade my Garmin and I don’t know where to go ( that’s why I’m excited to see the Mevo+ reviews)
