Cleveland had a booth at demo day, and like Wilson and Mizuno, a conference room at the convention center.

Trade shows are funny. I'm heading to one right now and you always wonder about booth space and what it says about a company's health and direction. In the end, it probably doesn't mean much. There's the big dogs, then there's everyone else...

I think that I asked this a ways back, though I never did anything with it and I forgot what was recommended, however, which is better to sell a club through, the Bay or Craig List?

No commission on Craigslist, but then you have to deal with the customer. Ebay will run you 15% of the final value when it's all said and done, but it's just throwing it in a box and printing the label.

In a nutshell....more money from Craigsist, less hassle on eBay.

Not trying to be argumentative, but eBay is anything BUT hassle free. Stupid questions, non-payment, b****ing about shipping and tracking numbers, and numb nuts who can't operate tape measures are just some of the fun things I've encountered in the last two weeks.

Craigslist can be a pain, but cash and carry can't be beat.

Final listing fees have pretty much ended my selling relationship with ebay. I would love to see the classifieds here beefed up. I check them daily but it just doesn't get much traffic. I think the potential is there but not sure how to get more people using it.

Matt, I'm going to be stopping by Golf Etc sometime this week, I'll ask Mike about the Covert and see if it's going to be a custom fit option there, I'll also ask him about the 913.

I'm a beta member from last year with golfredefined.com. Won't be for everyone but if you want to demo all of these drivers to find out which one suits your game then have a look.

WOWzers there is a lot of suggestions out there. I would say the most common is the Nike Covert, Titleist 913, Callaway Razr Extreme, and Ping Anser. I will probably stay with Titleist or go to Ping, I just can't take the crazy tops and logo's everywhere.

No problem, I know you could call, but I was going to talk to Mike, so I thought I'd save you the trouble. On that note, I just spoke to him. They will be getting the Covert Tour and it will be a custom fit option; he said it would probably be a couple week before they got it in. I forgot to ask about the 913 though.

I spent a couple hours at a golf shop today and I have to say, some of the new releases are pretty disappointing in my opinion. I tried the Callaway Razr Fit Extreme, Cobra AMP Cell, Nike Covert/Tour, and Titleist 913. The Callaway was very nice looking but felt a little too firm but then again I wasn't warmed up yet so I have to try it again. The Cobra didn't feel that great and the colors were cool but seemed a little too bright for me. The Nike Covert was interesting. The Performance version didn't feel good and sounded pretty bad. The Tour version felt a lot better and sounded a lot better so that was my favorite so far in terms of feel. The Titleist 913 looks the best but the feel is not bad but not the greatest.

How did u feel about the covert tour on mis hits? I like the way it looks better with the black sole but T said it wasn't supposed to be very forgiving.
