Does what is advertised.

Pros: Lots of spin and cofidence around the greens, very durable.

Cons: Not for short hitters.

I was just recently given the opportunity to test the Bridgestone B330-S balls, and took 3 of them with me to a local par 3 course 3 times and used them for a 13 hole round.   The performance is exactly as advertised, my feeling is that they were fitted too aggressively for me due to the fact that the current balls I use are a so called "distance" ball. They should change the BFit to include mainly swing speed. I think these balls are fit for someone with a 110 swing speed.   Even with a slow swing speed, these babies really perform on the course. I am even thinking of taking them to the course, tomorrow at Goose Creek. I like the softer feel on the approach shots less than...

The trainer is deceptively helpful.

Pros: Easy to use, helps with timing.

Cons: You need to have a proper swing before using it.

When I first got this trainer three months ago, I could not take advantage of it. Now that I am learning to use a proper swing, it helps me with my timing. It forces you to use your hips more and gives you a good feel when you get the timing correct. The only con is that the shaft is not flexible enough and it stops abruptly after the follow through. It is a little hard on the wrists when set below 5. I warm up as recommended using a setting in the 9 or above, and gradually move down the graduations. Currently, I can comfortably make it click at 5. This is the setting on the speed dial. Even at the lower speed settings you can do half swings and get the timing down there as well. The...

Great club, it is the only one I can hit reliably other than my 4H of the same brand and make.

Pros: Solid shots with no effort.

Cons: The white top makes it very obvious, but now that there's lots of use in it it has lost a lot of the lighthouse glint.

This club along with the partner 4H are the best purchases I have ever made. Although, I did buy both of mine at Dick's on sale for the same price last year. The lefty club selection at my local Golfsmith seems to focus on the latest clubs. These hybrids have replaced both of my fairway woods. They have a much more compact head, and elicit much more confidence in my shots. However, since I generally hit off the standard tees, I rarely need the 240 to 250 yards possible from a 3 fairway wood. That is, possible if I manage to hit that fairway wood well. These clubs are heavier and more compact, and I feel like I do not need to swing hard to get the desired distance. This in turn, makes...
