I’ve never lost a tag. I don’t know what some of you are doing. 🙂

Of course now I jinxed myself.

I think we talked about it before. My theory is off-center contact causes excess vibration up the shaft. It's only ever an issue on my PURE grips because the hole at the end is bigger.

I'll see how long I can tolerate tagging another club and editing before I just abandon the whole thing altogether. I'm not even going to bother emailing them. They still haven't gotten back to me from last week when I emailed them about the course mapping at Keney Park. There are some units with tags for $50 on eBay but I don't think I actually want to spend more money on this thing.

I use GolfPride CP2’s on my irons, and there is no way those tags are coming out. You almost need a tool to even thread them in all the way.

@billchao- I have a full set of extra tags I’m never gonna use. PM me and I’ll send you whichever ones you want.

I have MCC on my irons and they're the same way. I've only ever had tags pop out of PURE grips.

Thanks. I went digging around in my old golf bag and found an old wedge with an extra tag on it, so I'm still in business for now.

Can confirm. 

Full swing skull shot + Pure grips = Tag ejection

Silicone, boys.

It’s not just for bathrooms and bimbos anymore.

Still pops out with silicone. Superglue works better, but it's not fun when you need to remove the tag for any reason because you have to clean the bits of hardened glue and rubber off it.

I'm fairly certain I simply forgot to apply any adhesive to my last GW tag. Oh well.

My clubs are about 1 1/2 years old.   I used a white silicone to help secure the tags to my Golf Pride CP2 Pro grips.   This week I had to screw two back down and will re-secure them again with silicone this week.

Stop mis-hitting them then Bill. 😉

Must be something wrong with my current wedges. I haven't mis-hit my old ones in about a year 😜

Just to follow up, they had to furlough a few employees but are starting to come back. They solved my problem so I put my tags back on my clubs.

Update....I uploaded a round today and noticed a chat feature added to the system.  In a matter of a couple of minutes I was chatting with a live support person at GameGolf.  That is the first update to the system I have seen in quite a while and after so long with no support at all I was pleasantly surprised to see this.  Maybe, just maybe, GameGolf is on the road to recovery.

Nice!  I hope you're right.  Thanks for telling us :-)

I will now start using Taylormades My round pro. I’ll just tag them manually. 
 

I am looking for a cheap 2nd generation Arccos system.

Game Golf followed up with me yesterday asking if there were any other courses with the same issue.   I check all of my rounds in which I've used the device and they are working as they should.   Within the last week, they have impressed me.

My two cents on recent customer support: nothing but positive. Had an issue with their mapping of a new course that I played (tagged fairway shots weren't recorded as fairways hits, mapping seemed skewed to the right). Was able to contact their support using the live chat feature and instantly was paired up with a rep, who managed to fix the issue in about 20 mins. Easy!

Glad to hear.  I know this is odd, but I really want them to succeed so I can continue to use my current tracker.  I know I could buy something new from someone else, but this has worked for me for nearly 5 years.

    • I do not know why that clip has been edited so, but my favorite part was when he wanders into the wrong door first - abuse.   One of their best, and entirely apropos.
    • Here in the Detroit area we are fortunate to have a good number of Ross courses, including a couple City Of Detroit Muni tracks.All the rest I am aware of are private clubs, but I have been fortunate enough to play most of them back in the 80's and 90's. Unfortunately one, Chandler Park was irreparably harmed when they built I-94 back in the 50's. But one Detroit Muni that isn't even in the City itself is still intact, Rogell Golf Course, next to the Detroit Zoo in Royal Oak is a fairly unmolested Ross course. Given the entire areas lack of natural elevation changes, without excessive use of bulldozers, Ross displays his mastery of deception with false fronts etc. Country Club of Detroit (private and actually in Grosse Pointe) is a real gem,and a prime example of Ross' genius on flat landscape..
    • I have just reentered the game  in Sept. after a 22 yr hiatus. I have found the clubs I am going to stick with for a while whilst I figure out how well I will end up striking the ball. Today I played two balls off every tee, then hit two from the one I picked, etc. Still shot an 84 on a little 6300 yard track because I have only played 1 previous round with these irons, and (Mainly) my touch and feel around the greens, and especially putting need a lot of work. Mid round I changed the setting on my Taylormade SLDR driver to dead neutral (no, I didn't take a penalty for that). My worst issue with reentering the game as an old wound ball player seems to be finding a ball I like. Well, today under a leaf  I found a Bridgestone B XS with with a lot of what I have been missing with the balls they seem to make today. It was fairly easy to work, but more importantly, it had a nice, active and predictive response to spin imparted with the money clubs on shots under a full swing. I'm going to have to investigate the Bridgestone line further. The Titleist Pro V my coworkers play and got me to try was alright, I could jerk the string on full shots, but for me, it wasn't it for finesse spin on less than full shots.
    • My wife and I will be staying there also. She will be sightseeing at Colonial Williamsburg while the rest of us are golfing.
