Note the part where it's dropped into a golf bag. I've never lost my golf bag, although that could happen. Too bad there's no way to put in on a club. The notify your friends/family feature is interesting as well.

I bought some. We have some of the Stick-n-Find ones already but they're kind of annoying. My wife's makes beeping noises any time it's jostled even though it's paired properly with her phone. Their UI sucks too.

I'm hoping Tile is a little better. The wife loses her keys way too frequently. :P

Ah, but did your wife accuse you of accidentally throwing out her keys only to find them six months later in her winter jacket?

No. But she once lost them twice within a four day period. What makes that worse is that they were lost for three of the four days. And I was just accused yesterday of accidentally recycling one of my daughter's boots. They are stored on shelves above the recycling bins. Somehow it is my fault alone if they fall in. :-)

It is always Dad's fault!

Lost keys scenario is screaming for a low cost effective solution. I dunno why the push for products like these don't get more traction. To quote a certain TV show - "We have the technology."

    • @Mr. Desmond, methinks I spoke too soon.  What do you want to bet, he IS back?  (under different screen name however). As in gambling, there are "tells". However, I will now take my leave and NOT engage.
    • I am not sure. Maybe 10-12 years old. I remember when I purchased them, I told myself they were the last  set of irons I would buy.  My fairway woods are probably 7, or 8 years old.  My putter is the great grand pa in my bag. I also have a couple of loose iron clubs that are pretty old.  Both my irons, and woods still serve me quite well. They are quality stuff. 
    • I'm interested in skytrak and other similar devices (more affordable at home indoor launch monitors).  I've been reading about them and watching reviews, and every single one seems to analyze the accuracy of the distance related numbers.  I don't care about distance when it comes to these devices, I only care about directional accuracy.  I want to know if I'm hitting the ball straight.     Are there reviews out there that I haven't found that focus on this aspect of these devices?
    • Avoid the greenside bunkers at all costs. If you end up in one, strongly consider playing at the center of the green instead of at the flag. And by strongly consider, I mean do that unless you're 100% sure you can pull off the shot without ending in another greenside bunker. 
    • This is pretty much what all teaching is based on.  The idea that changes in your alignments will make you a better player.   If a player comes in with either too strong or two weak a grip or a flying right elbow or a flat swing or an upright swing, the average teacher wants too change it.   I too believe there is certain things you can do to change your swing.  But I more importantly believe that a proper transition fixes a lot of little details.  I think most people would agree that tiger, jack, Sam Snead, Ben hogan, lee Trevino, and nick faldo are some of the best ball strikers and best winners of all time.   But Trevino had a really strong grip and hogan had a really weak one.  So any where in between will work.  Hogan had a really tucked elbow and jack had a flying elbow.  So anywhere in between will work.   Sam Snead had a pretty upright swing as did jack and tiger but hogan and Trevino both much flatter.  So anywhere inbetween will work. All these players do have one thing in common and that is a similar lower bodie transition
