How much do you think temperature affects the readings? I feel that when it's 40 and below, the readings seem low for distance and spin, but good for launch. The balls are cold. It may be that I am just more bundled up too.
Glad to see you and your bride getting back into "The Swing" of things.... See what I did there.
Rockbottom and TGW.com have for a long time been sort of my go tos online. One thing I like about Rockbottom is the constantly send me 20% off coupons via email. I like TGW because they seem to, at least usually, have the best customization options. I agree with you about Global Golf also. They are solid. 2ndSwing and CarlsGolfLand are also sometimes worth a look.
GolfEtail is fine for what they are, IMO. But you just have to remember they are kind of the Big Lots of the online golf world. No offense to Big Lots. They certainly have a place. But the idea is cut costs down as low as possible and pretty much sell overstock. Limited service, limited selection, most of their stuff is non-current product. I guess you CAN find some nuggets in there but usually there's a reason that nobody bought what they have back when it was on the shelf at the bigger stores.
