  1. Received my sample pack of the Red & Black in the mail today. It may be a couple weeks before I can review... but I’ll follow up once I have the chance to give them a go. I’ll compare them to the prior MTB, ProV-1, and ProV-1x
  2. I think @WUTiger’s comment was good too... maybe check out the Ping i200 (if you’re set on a Ping product)
  3. I have a pair of Smith sun glasses (I think they’re called Parallel) that I use for everything sports related (golf, fishing, running, mtn biking, etc.). They seem to work fine for tracking the ball to me. I would think most polarized sunglasses would work well (surprised the Maui Jim’s aren’t doing the trick).
  4. @fishgolf only you can really answer the question, by trying out some hybrids and seeing how they marry up with your irons. In general, hybrids are typically more forgiving, but allow less control (mostly trajectory). Personally, I like having both a hybrid (3h) and a long iron (4i) in the bag, as it gives me the best of both worlds in the long iron/hybrid end of the bag. ps - that profile pic is great... change the pipe to a cigar and that’s me haha
  5. Agreed, highly likely it’s a different ball. Although I don’t imagine Costco would risk putting out a crap ball either, based on the positive results of the first one. The new Kirkland ball states the manufacturer is SMG Global (which has manufacturing facilities in South Korea). The first Kirkland ball was a Nassau overrun (which are also manufactured in South Korea... along with many brands). Those comparisons are for the “original” Kirkland ball, not the new version. So I wouldn’t rely on those for the new version. Why wait around for them, they’re nothing special c
  6. I consider myself a “good” golfer, and my eagles are typically more due to luck. You are better than “good”, so lucky for you is possibly more along the lines of a hole in one. It’s relative, is what I’m getting at
  7. A hole in one, or sinking an eagle from 50+ out, is lucky whether one is a good golfer or a bad golfer. Based on that, I can’t fully agree with Trevino. But luck may be relative in the sense that... good luck for bad golfers is more likely bouncing off a tree back into play... where good luck for a good golfer is more along the lines of an eagle.
  8. @The Shankster in addition, there are quite a few golfers that pretty much fall into an off the rack standard fit. So it’s not surprising to see unless someone is pretty tall or pretty short (or specifically wants a different shaft or something). I found myself over analyzing whether I had a good enough fitting or not, and turns out after going to a highly respected fitter last year, the fitting outcome didn’t change as compared to the shop I purchased my irons from. Other than a small lie adjustment (which really doesn’t make much of a difference in my game), I’m an off the rack standa
  9. @onthehunt526 echo... if you want them, get them
  10. @xrayvizhen I have a Ping Traverse bag that I use with my Sun Mountain push cart. The combo has worked well for me
  11. He asked which is worth trying... both new balls are worth trying (irregardless if he currently plays an e6). Curious to hear your thoughts on the MTB Red once you have the chance to try them out.
  12. You can try both if you pick up the sample pack
  13. Posted the details in the wrong topic by accident... but here are the details on the new MTB balls. Fans of yellow will be happy!
  14. I think the best odds are for “someone else”, vs. only 4 golfers. However, I voted Hideki... I’d like to see him and Ricky both do it
  15. @NM Golf I get what you’re saying (I think). Seems the group you’re referring to cares more about how fast they play vs the game itself. I think people have things they like to identify themselves with, for whatever reason (ego related reasons usually). We don’t always understand why (nor do they). Maybe in this case they just really want to be identified with not being a part of the slow pace problem. Personally, my goal is to enjoy the round and play well... (and of course, I don’t enjoy the 5 1/2 rounds either)
