  1. I'm also with you where I've never replaced spikes on shoes. I'm generally very gentle with mine. I try to stay away from gravel/asphalt/concrete and do my best to just walk on grass. That's a sure fire way to get your golf shoes treads and spikes to last forever!
  2. It was, I ordered a pair of the Game Changer Hybrids (as well as their ultralightweight stand bag which looks nice. Will just return it if I don't really like it). Thanks for all the input guys! I expected more people to be pushing Ecco on here since they seem to have a good reputation with comfort, but we shall see how the Trues are :)
  3. You know, I keep getting their magazine, and I don't know why I never thought to look at their shoes! I'll look into True Linkswear
  4. Hey folks! Right now I'm in the market for a new pair of golf shoes. Right now I have the FootJoy Contour series that are going into their third year of play, and they're just not really cutting it. I remember when I bought them, they were a heck of a lot more comfortable than my FootJoy Lites I had before them. Maybe just age is getting to them, but they're still in great condition. Regardless, my feet are killing me. As of right now, price isn't really the deciding factor...I have yet to find a golf shoe that is actually comfortable to wear. There isn't a place anywhere nearby where I can try any on, so I was looking to just order something off of Zappos. There are a few models I have in mind: Ecco Biom Hybrid 2 Ecco Biom G 2 Puma BioDrive Puma TitanTour FootJoy HyperFlex FootJoy DNA I'm also not really sure if the "hybrid" style shoes would be generally considered more comfortable than the traditional spike ones. I just want to get as much feedback from this great community of avid golfers, and I'd trust this forum over reading reviews on sites. If you have any of the models I am considering, I'd love to hear from you. If you have any shoes you'd like to mention that aren't on my list, obviously feel free to shout it out. And like I said, not looking at price as the real deciding factor. I just want to get the right pair of shoes. I appreciate all the feedback!
  5. Hahaha that's how I felt about the 2 wheeled pull cart that I used to use very seldom
  6. It really depends on the person, their skill level, and what they are looking for out of the game. If it is just your weekend hacker or someone who is out there just for the fun of it, then yes, they should tee it forward. But for someone who plays regularly and who is really trying to become very good, then they shouldn't tee it forward. I voted "maybe", because it depends.
  7. At my home course, the 15th hole is probably the worst Granted, it's pretty straight, but the fact that it's 600 yards makes it tough enough, especially for a relatively short hitter like me. The fairway is lined with trees on both sides (as most are), but the sheer length of it gives you the mentality that you need to kill it off the tee, which usually never ends well for most people. Not only is it long, but the green is a nightmare. Talk about slope. If you miss long, forget it. Your ball will go off the front without a doubt. This is the only hole that I will "let" myself get a double bogey on hahah
  8. Alright guys, I did order myself the Rovic RV3F last night off of Amazon as in the poll, using a push cart is the majority (though slim). We'll see how much I like it! Should get it Wednesday. Last right I was reading reviews of just about every push cart out there so I think it should be a good choice. I'd like to save my back a little bit.
  9. It's an awesome feeling when your irons are spinning! A lot of factors go into it
  10. I walk almost every time I play golf (unless I'm in a league or tournament) and I have no real problem with it. I like to walk. I always carry my bag as well. However, I see a LOT of people who have push carts and I was wondering if it's worth getting one. The only push cart I've used before was a crappy one from the 90s that I didn't like very much, but I don't think that I should make up my mind off of that. So, walkers, do you carry your bag or use a push cart? Those who have done both, which do you prefer? Do you really find it easier pushing a cart over carrying your bag? I was looking online for some models in the case that I were to get one and the Rovic RV3F (made by Clicgear) really stood out to me. Those who do have carts, any recommendations?
  11. My uncle hits a 2 iron. Of course, he's also VERY good, drives it a mile, and has a fast swing speed which allows him to do so. Me? I can't even hit a 4 iron well ;)
  12. I don't think that's nearly enough loft for a 5 hybrid. 22 degrees is the loft of my 4 hybrid I believe. Going by your current lofts, try looking for maybe like a 25 degree club for your 5 hybrid.
  13. Awesome, thanks! I'll be sure to keep up with that
  14. Hello everybody! I'd like to jump in on this thread as I'm from western Massachusetts in the Berkshires
  15. Mine are standard lace ups, and I'm with you...they're the most comfortable golf shoe I have owned
