My son's phone has been giving him issues lately and it looks like it's time to get him a new one.  Just so happens that AT&T has a buy one, get one offer. The downside is that he will have to change his number but he says he doesn't care. So what better time to get me a phone as well...haha. He says he wants the XR and I am trying to decide if I want the XS or the XS Max. I currently have the 7 plus and it is still a really good phone. I had thought about upgrading mine and giving him this one, but with the deal going on and the fact that he has always gotten hand me downs, I'll probably just get both of us a new one. I just need to get into the store to see the physical size difference between my 7 plus and the XS Max. Who knows, I may end up just upgrading him and keeping mine....

Any suggestions or opinions on the 3 models??

I got the XS because it's the smallest one, but appreciate the extras, the screen, lighter, better camera, 3D touch, potentially faster LTE. But basically, the XR was just way too big for my taste. I've been saying that for each successive iPhone, but size is reaching a tipping point. Compared to earlier models though, it's gotten big and heavy though.

Well, I've got the 7 plus and it's not terrible. I think it is a touch bigger than the XS Max. So, it doesn't sound like size will be a big issue with me. It may actually feel a little better than my 7 plus but would have to pick one up as they are a little heavier than my 7 plus, I think

If you are comfortable with the size of the 7+, then don't hesitate to go with the Max. If you would love a smaller phone than the 7+ but with a much better/bigger screen than the 7, then go with the XS. 

I have the Max and absolutely love it. Beautiful screen and is just a hair smaller than my 8+ but with significantly more screen real estate. 

We did the same thing with our daughter who is in college. We both got new phones and just split the total bill.

I guess that is why I actually need to go physically look...I know the smaller size would actually have a little more display area. So I may get the best of both worlds with the XS. Great points!

    • Because at your level of golf it's like thinking that a shaft change is going to help you move the ball from left to right or right to left like Bubba Watson. Don't fall into the trap of thinking that golf is about golf equipment. Look at the WITB videos of the top players on Youtube. The majority of them have little or no interest in the shafts they use. They pretty much know they work, don't change them much and in many cases have to look at the shafts to be able to tell with certainty what they are.
    • Day 40 (17 Jan 22) - Yard too soggy for anything outside, opted for putting drills today.  Practiced from 3ft up to 10ft.  Also went all putt putt with setups that forced 2 strokes to get to the hole.  Made for good work on lagging to where I was in position to sink the putt for the second shot.  I like this drill as there are more times than not I have to think "lag" putt to set up for the second.  
    • So I’ve been using $400 Nike IGNITE clubs for about 14 years now and it’s time to upgrade.  They seem very stiff especially when I use someone else's clubs at the range just to get a different feel for it.  My irons on impact feel stiff/rock solid.  I used my friends recently, which were some regular ol' "Top Flite" golf clubs and I noticed the shaft is much more softer, I felt it bend on impact.   I'm not sure which way to go so need some tips.  Should I go for a full set (minus driver and putter) or should I mix and match by getting the irons individually in the irons I use the most, such as 9 iron, 8 iron, 5 iron etc?    What are some good clubs to look at currently? I am ready to get myself clubs that may be more fitted for me in terms of swing speed, power, distance etc.   In terms of budget, I'd say maybe in the $400-1400 range without the driver and putter.
    • Yes, head and shaft were wrapped. It definitely doesn’t look new and it’s not what I ordered so I’ll be returning it soon. I got the wrong head club( mavrik22) and wrong head cover (epic instead of mavrik). No tool, no instructions on adjustments, not even in a callaway box. Like you mentioned it sounds like a bait and switch. I’m just glad I found this forum before it was too late to return it. Thanks for all the help! 
    • Without real information from your fitting, the advice you get here is going to be quite limited.
