  1. I went back to the show the next day. I was going to give it another try, even though they weren't next to each other, but the Callaway guy was gone. In talking to the Tour Edge guy, it turns out that they also have Callaway but don't they have the Mavrik in yet. I'm going to check back in with him every week until he gets it, then he'll fit me with whichever I decide I like. I know I'm limiting myself with only 2 brands to choose from, but I think I like them both and more choices would probably only confuse me. I'll post back once I've tried them.
  2. I've been playing for two years with my starter set (Strata, marketed by Callaway). Still struggling at the game (30 handicap), but I tried a couple of other clubs and I know I can do better than what I've got. I stopped by Dick's one day and hit a Callaway Rogue X and a Ping (can't remember the model) 7-iron. Definitely liked the Rogue better than the Ping - felt like there was more mass, and the Trackman said I was hitting it about 25 yards farther than my current clubs and the Ping. There happened to be a Golf Show in town today and I hit with both a TourEdge (which I had previously swung at a Demo Day) and Callaway (with their Mavrik Max). I like them both, but swinging them was not consecutive - they were at different places at the show. I have one course here in town that fits and sells TourEdge (they set me up on a launch monitor at the show and were able to give me some numbers). And, of course, there are multiple Callaway dealers, just not at that course. The TourEdge guys were touting the price difference, but based in internet pricing at each manufacturer's website, they're only about $300 apart, so not a relevant difference. Not sure how to do a valid comparison of the two. Any thoughts?
  3. I'm winding up my 2nd year playing. I'm 5'9", 165 lbs, age 67. Been using Strata box set since that's what I found the internet said was the best set for a beginner. It was a small investment to get started. But I'm not happy with my distances, and when I swung some Tour Edge clubs at my local course's demo day, I thought they had lots more heft and I felt like I was getting much more distance. I know getting fitted is the right thing to do, but I'm confused about the timing. I've had two people (one of them my instructor) say that my swing isn't "consistent enough" to get fitted. But I'm struggling with understanding how I'll know when that happens. I don't have a problem with the investment if it will make the game more enjoyable. Anyone have any thoughts?
