I received the same promo material from them today.  Night and day difference between them and the AdiPure and Tour 360's.  I guess everyone is going to be competing with True and Ecco now.

Video is uploading now. I've added it so when it's up, it'll be seen automatically. I'm heading downtown to our academy. :)

I wore them sitting in my chair and walking around my house for half an hour before taking them off.

Does that answer the question? :)

Do they say what the heel drop is? I like the light strategy but I am interested to know how close they got to barefoot shoes.

I really like the look as well.

No. Hopefully 4mm or less, but I'm doubtful.

Seems about normal... if you like having your toes squished together. I've grown accustomed to a much wider toe box. I never understood why golf shoes by and large had such pointy toeboxes.

I was told it's because golf shoes were initially designed to resemble dress shoes which typically (depending on fashion trends) have a pointy toe box.

In the traditional sense of the country club golfer wearing "slacks," I can see that logic.

Even better. I have very narrow feet so I like a tight fitting shoe.

I think there's a difference between toe box shape and the general "width" of a shoe.

Perhaps you've simply found that narrower toeboxes are a reasonable tradeoff since you probably can't easily find shoes that are narrower than standard.

    • A run of the mill slice is something I can actually live with (though it'll be an annoying existence).  A push slice is probably the most off line I ever get with a shot (even more than a shank due to distance) as it starts right and goes further right.  Luckily those are so rare that when they do pop up they usually aren't in a spot where it causes me trouble.
    • The point that I was specifically responding to was, just because you're on top of another group, it still may be appropriate to allow others through.  Just because @No Mulligans hadn't experienced it, didn't mean that the concept was moot by any means... And fwiw, our relatively fast group has allowed 5-somes through....
    • These guys haven't gotten to where they are without being ultra-competitive.  I don't think the lack of money had any real effect on their desire to win.
    • The slice is just such a devastating miss for your game. It is a shot that I really have to eliminate from my game. I am an incredibly inconsistent player, to the point where I can be hitting a beautiful high fade and start to go pin hunting for several holes, having several looks at birdie in a row and then within the next several holes be almost unable to hit the ball without hitting a horrendous slice. I am so inconsistent that it is not abnormal for me to go something like par, birdie, par, birdie, par, quad, quad, quad in an eight hole stretch.
    • I recently won some pro shop credit ($100) at a semi-private course nearby.  Thing is, I need to use it before November or it expires. I don't really need any clothes or accessories so I was thinking I might put it towards a new driver.  The problem is, while I'm sure I can test it out on the range, they just have regular old range balls and I'm doubtful there's any kind of fitting process.  I also can't really play a round there with a demo club unless I'm someone's guest or I'm willing to shell out $100+ to play off-peak times (which I'm not).  There's a decent golf shop down the road from the course that offers fittings for $75/hour, with a $50 credit toward a related purchase within 30 days.  I've never had a proper fitting, so would it make sense to go to the golf shop, get fit, assume I'll probably get a custom shaft, go buy the same driver at the pro shop using my credit, and then buy the shaft from the golf store, applying the fitting credit?  When you get fit and end up with a custom shaft, is the shaft price usually totally on top of the full price of the off-the-rack driver, or is there typically a discount since you're not getting the OEM shaft? Obviously different stores do things differently, but I'm just wondering what is common practice. I'm trying not to overthink it but I also don't want to waste my pro shop credit. Any advice would be much appreciated!
