  1. It depends on what you're looking for in a ball. I've played the ProV's and I don't have anywhere near tour level swing speed. It's no shorter for me than the other balls I've played so I don't completely buy in to the notion you have to have 105+ swing speed to play this ball. Of course I can't maximize it the way the pro's do, but you can say that about most equipment. The one thing I know for sure (for me), is that no other ball I've ever played has the green-side spin/ bite/control that the ProV's have. Even the pro's don't chip and pitch with 110+ mph swings lol. Having said that,
  2. I play the Bridgestone B330 RXS. Caught them on sale for 29.99/dz and Dick's honored a $10 coupon to net them out at $ 19.99/dz. No way to beat that deal imo.
  3. You should check at an arts and crafts store and see what they suggest. The one's around here do custom framing work and would likely be able to give you guidance and/or provide what you're looking for. I like your idea, good luck!
  4. Trust me, had nothing to do with over packing it. It's extremely lightweight and flimsy,No issues with with zippers failing or material (other than the putter tube) tearing. Just my personal experience, take it for what it's worth.
  5. In match play it's common to give questionable length putts early in the round only to make you putt them later when it really matters.
  6. Poor structural integrity. The bag was so flimsy that it wouldn't even stand up on it's own on level ground causing it to fall over. Also, the inside edge of the sleeve (rubber grommet if you will) in the putter well started to warp inward causing it to catch my putter grip every time I went to pull it out which is very frustrating. Anything you packed in the bag like pull overs or extra balls etc., got pushed inward causing the grips to tangle making them difficult to remove. Overall, I believe they sacrificed quality to save weight.
  7. Clubs are tools, typically not collector items.
  8. I don't know who makes it, but I can assure you the Titleist Lightweight cart bag is the worst bag I've ever purchased. Put up with it for less than a year before making a change...cheap, cheap, cheap.
  9. It's not that big a deal to me either, but after playing extensive golf in groups with SkyCaddies, Golf Buddies and Garmins where there was never more than a yard or two difference in measurements, why would you pay a subscription? It doesn't make sense to me and that's before they changed their policies. To each their own though, not my money.
  10. Fair enough, but I was referring to the other "dedicated" golf GPS choices on the market. I tried the phone option too and didn't like it for some of the same reasons you mentioned.
  11. Another vote for the Clic Gear. I too made fun of the push carts until I tried one but it's hard to argue with this model. Durable, compact when folded and very stable.
  12. Garmin G6 and Bushnell V3...use the Garmin more on the course as I'm not precise enough to worry about +/- a few yards. Just give me the front, back and middle and I'm set.
  13. I ditched my Sky Caddie earlier this year because I too had grown tired of the subscription. Prior to ditching it, I played many rounds with friends with Golf Buddies, Garmins, etc. and there wasn't a lick of difference in measurements. I went with the Garmin G6 and love it. I also won a Bushnell V3 Slope edition and I use the Garmin more on the course. I do find the range finder is very helpful with practice to determine exact distances I'm hitting for each club. In summary, I don't know how in the world Sky Caddie continues to be successful charging subscriptions.
  14. Personally, I would only buy the club after a proper fitting....as in that SPECIFIC club (whatever it is) you have in your hand. Even in identical models you will find differences in shafts and/or feel due to manufacturing tolerances. I wish I could specifically recall the article, but there was a write up to this effect in one of the golf rags. FWIW, I'm still playing the G5 that I've had for years, can't quite bring myself to give it up since I hit it well.
