True dat.

Lol looks like 70's wallpaper.

Like the "plain" Edel irons ...

 

@mvmac How are Jesse's clubs?

 

I like his fairways - wish he made a 21.

 

The hybrids - probably needs to reduce the "look" of offset.

 

The driver … talk with me about it… says he fixed the sound and put in a new Ti material.

Just hit a few shots with each club.  Driver is great looking but a little loud.  The cup face is pretty interesting technology.  Fairway woods are awesome, some of the best in the game.  Hybrids are stupid easy to hit.

 

More pics.....

@mvmac

Thanks.

Jessie's fairways and hybrids were great last year, now with the cup face, they are even better

The driver will require some hot melt, as usual, as with every driver on the market. Maybe a little more in his driver.

By the way, the diet is working - you dropped pounds and look great

I'll disagree. I'll probably also never give up low heel drop less structured shoes. So much better for my feet than the "casts" like normal shoes.

I agree 100%. I remember putting on my first pair of True Linkswear and i almost stumbled on my first step. You'd be shocked at how your body can really tell the difference when you have zero heel drop. 

 

I doubt they are on the way out. I see more minimalist shoes out there now then ever. I think most people just don't take it easy. They are not use to having their feet do work. When you get so much support your feet become weak and pathetic. Feet are like any other body part, put too much stress too soon and injuries can happen.

@mvmac - Did you see Gears Golf at the show? What did you think of it?

post #51 of 69

What's with the Titleist guys in uniforms?

 

And


Why don't they smile?

 

And

 

None of them seem like they're having a good time ... 

 

And that goes to our local Titleist rep ...  a curmudgeon.

 

So Vokey copies Mizuno in terms of groove depth and width ... w 56 and above being the spin monsters.. and below being the more predictable spin.

 

And that makes it a SM5?

 

The groove area also seem narrow ... I guess after you've played Edel wedges, the others seem smallish.

Its true brands like vibram 5 fingers sales in my territory have gone from 3.5 million 2 years ago down to under 400 k and still dropping, what is on fire for runners is back to conventional running shoes like brooks, and asics some with zero or low drop, but also Hoka one one, with huge amount of midsole. Hoke one one cold be labeled as HOT


Mention BAREFOOT to a buyer and you are opening up a wound and losing a sale.

Yep I was just at Road Runner Sports last weekend getting fit for some ASICS trainers. Yes I do the shoe fitting thing, been seeing the same person there for years. She said hardcore runners are trending back to traditional looking shoes with a meld of technology combining barefoot concepts, less heel to toe differential etc. with putting cushion under your feet again. The word I'm seeing tossed around in the running mags is maximal. I don't mind a less structured shoe for walking, golf things like that. But for running no way and I've always lifted weights barefoot.

I agree that the barefoot branding has taken a hit. The runner's world has really slammed barefoot running. I think that is why a lot of them are getting away from that labeling and more towards Minimalist and Zero Drop. Say its a shoe, but just brand it more by the specific about it, rather than trying to create a whole new genre.
