How Forum Testers Will Be Chosen


Message added by STUDque

Initially posted by @GolfSpy MPR

 

All,

I'm going to go ahead a lock this thread from further posts, just to keep new folks from getting confused and posting their testing applications here. My sincere thanks goes to those who continue to help our new members.

For those new: read the opening few posts in this thread; they are essential instructions for getting involved in this awesome community! If you are trying to apply for a test, go back to the thread announcing the opportunity and reply to that thread.

I think it's a great move, personally.  And hey, if it runs some people off, they weren't here for the right reasons to begin with.

In The Bag
Driver: TaylorMade M2 (2017) w/ Project X T1100 HZRDUS Handcrafted 65x 
Strong 3 wood: Taylormade M1 15* w/ ProjectX T1100 HZRDUS handcrafted 75x

Have a ton of back-ups in all categories, but there are always 14 clubs in the bag that differ depending on the course and set-up. Bomb and gouge. Yes, I'm a club gigolo.

+10!

 

MGS has the community it has due to quality, not quantity.  If this is what's needed to keep it that way, so much the better!  Once I walk my daughter down the aisle and we toast the bride and groom this weekend, I'll get my club specs updated - lol :D

Hey, if they are not here for the right reasons, then let them be.  Stick with those that got you to the top.

I know I'm a little new around here (therefore my sense of entitlement isn't very high - lol) I do want to say that it's nice to see a community that does let it's readers test stuff as you do.  As with everything, there will be politics and it's sad that it has to rear it's ugly head in here, but a spade is a spade and I like the approach you all have chosen.

 

I also like that you said you are afraid to chase away a few bad apples for the sake of the bunch.  Bravo.....

How about sucking up? Is that frowned on?

Because I'm not above a little brown nosing. Did I mention WD is an exceptionally handsome man?...

Great idea for testing clubs.  And as always great site to read about clubs being tested too.  A frequent visitor who frequently forgets to log in - might have to change that though.

I'm a new member and wouldn't expect anything for free. I agree that those that have good input and give reviews should benefit from product testing or give away's. It just takes time.

I hope you get to do a test soon and that you do us proud.
