DIY steps are hard to follow

Posted

Pros: in-depth, well written

Cons: poorly described examples

I managed to get a used copy of this and skimmed through it for about an hour.  I was left with a favorable impression at that point.   When I went through it again more in-depth, I tried to follow the examples of how to determine your own LAW, and was unimpressed.  The language and instructions were at times easy to follow, but some examples were too vague or ambiguous and I couldn't understand what the authors intended.  There are many references that also say 'go with you gut feeling', or 'use natural common sense'.   I came away thinking I was a mixed leveraged and width player, but per the book could not say or certain.     After you...

DIY Range Net begins with Gourock

Posted

Pros: value, quality, reputation, durability, appearance

After searching high and low for pre-made range nets, I decided to build my own.  I bought the range quality 10' x 30' net online and everything else from Lowe's.  Total cost was $125 compared to $100s of I think inferior out of the box items.

A full season later, even the cat still loves it

Pros: value, durability, appearance, quality

Cons: price

another one of those purchases I made by spending the time to do research and compare as much as possible to competitors.   This mat has held up to my year long commitment of retuning my golf swing.  That means countless days being hit off of.  Plus it became a permanent fixture on my exposed patio this summer, and I live in TX so it has had its fair share of heat and a few thunderstorm.  I plan to move it into the garage, but not until the weather really changes.   If you want a mat for a season plus, get this.     A side note: I wish all ranges came equipped with this mat.  Nothing I have used at a range compares.  Plus the cat...

Feet first! No more foot pain

Posted

Pros: comfort, durability, appearance, brand, value

Cons: price

I am sold on the brand!  Never have I recommended shoes until I tried on a pair of ECCO hiking boots.  If you have painful feet like I do, you would never recommend a brand either simply because no brand makes pain go away, let alone make your feet feel better after having walked on them.  I also have had to wear inserts in different times in my life.   A salesman persuaded me to try ECCO boots and I have been sold on them ever since.  I now own a pair of BIOM athletic shoes and training shoes that I wear everyday.  Can't say enough good things about these shoes.   Yes, they are pricey.  But at what dollar amount would be your break point...

Loved these game improvement irons

Posted

Pros: weight, forgiveness, distance, quality, confidence

I loved these clubs and after research, comparisons and deliberate consideration bought the 4- GW to replace old knock offs.  I had not played in 10 years and wanted both newer technology and something that was going to allow me to play and practice while I improved and got back into a golfing lifestyle.
