  1. Looking for any and all opinions on folks with experience having owned or used any of the currently offered swing analysis gizmos on the market: zepp, blast motion, arcos, etc. I was about to pull the trigger on the zepp, but I'm reading good things about other options out there. thanks in advance for your advice!
  2. Im thinking about pulling the trigger on one of these but I wasn’t sure if you all had any experience with them? Power Bag
  3. I’m new here.... anyways Can’t find any info on these clubs or company (state of the art golf company) in general found one on the side of the road in a pile of other stuff (S.O.T.A E.R.S) a putter to be exact I’m just curious as to why there’s nothing on the internet about them hardly?! Like no wiki or forums, barely any forsale and the forums that do exist are like atleast ten years old and 2 of them at that really don’t have anything much about them still but there are a few forsale on eBay and stuff but I’m more curious as to what there all about more than the worth ( found it in the trash
  4. HELP!! I recently moved from the US to a different country where golf is not popular. I have no golf equipment, no courses, no local players, nothing but the internet. I want to keep practicing my golf (will be returning to the US in November), but am unsure how to do so. Does anyone have any advice on drills I can be doing with like a broomstick or something? Or a way to DIY a club? I know I can't really play or make a real club, but maybe I can get something similar weight and size to practice my swing?? Really hoping to get some practice in. Thanks!
  5. From 2009: http://www.golfdigest.com/story/hotlistevolution-0902 From 2015: http://www.myvirtualpaper.com/doc/Golfweek-Custom-Media/golfweek-5-18-15/2015051202/17.html#16 This post links to an article from 2017: Ignoring the fact that without a floor, you can't really calculate a percent improvement*… the fact remains: golfers are getting better. This seems to be true despite courses continuing to get more difficult, golfers playing longer tees than they often should, and anything else you can think of. Golfers continue to get better, IMO, because: Instruction
  6. Hey everybody my name is Jay and I wanted to post some info on a new high end club company that I'm working with. The company is called Sub 70 and will produce ultra high end, custom built, direct to consumer golf equipment. Everyone involved with the project loves golf and we wanted to create a golf company, and golf clubs, that other passionate golfers would be excited about. We want the products and company reputation to sell itself. We're focused on the technology + the brand, and we won't be pumping releases out every year in order to chase spent advertising dollars. We're really excited
  7. I was recently fitted for a new set of Ping i500 irons. I was playing an older set of Mizuno JPX 800 pros. After a few hours on the range, it didn’t look like the new irons were going longer. The lofts on the i500 are about 2 degrees less than my mizuno (long to mid iron, pw and gw are the same) My 7-iron is about a 170 yard club, but I seem to be about 5-10 yards shorter with the new irons. During the fitting, I went thru about 4 different shafts before I got something that gave me good numbers in the Trackman. Does anyone have any experience in this area? I know the i500 has been p
  8. I just bought this bag. NEVER BEEN USED. Still has the fresh leather smell, no lint, NOTHING, for $100. Is it worth it?
  9. I want to stamp and paint fill my new black Tommy Armour GXT wedges. Not sure if there are any precautions/specific steps I need to take. I'm worried that paint may not wipe off the black PVD finish. Anyone have experience with this?
  10. I'm looking for recommendations on balls, grips, or other types of equipment that you all like that are not from a big name company. Most people will use Taylormade, Titleist, Callaway clubs, etc. but there is a growing market for smaller name companies. For example, four years ago, not many people knew what Parsons Golf (PXG) was and now they have a dozen or more tour pro's on staff. What recommendations do you all have?
  11. Hey all! So, I’m convinced that I’m in need of new (stiffer) shafts in my irons. This is based on a few data points: 1) I have a two way miss that I am having great difficulty correcting. Either a push straight right, or a hard overdraw/hook. I read that some who have too-flexible/light shafts can have this miss pattern. Seems to fit my situation. If I S L O W my swing down, I can straighten it a bit, but it feels unnatural, like I’m putting the brakes on my swing. I’d rather swing full. I feel like I’m walking on a razor with the ‘right’ speed, and I’m thinking it would help to have
  12. I saw a commercial the other day for the Callaway GolFit and it had me interested. So after browsing around all day yesterday I ended up stuck between that and the Garmin Approach X40. I was wondering if anyone here had any experience with either unit. It would be neat to tie in the fitness and GPS into one watch device. Both look sleek and don't appear to get in the way when golfing. The Garmin has a few more features and is on sale for $199. The Callaway is $149. Looking like it might be an after Xmas present for myself!
  13. For the past couple of years, I have namely played the following set-up: Tour Edge Exotics EX9 Driver, 3 or 4 wood, 3 hybrid, and usually 4 hybrid (though I own the 5 hybrid) Exotics EXI irons (usually 5-AW, sometimes adding the 4-iron) Exotics CB Pro S wedges of varying lofts from 52-60 degrees, but usually 52° and 56°) Exotics DG Tour Series v1.1 Putter, Superstroke Fatso 5.0 35". Ok, so one thing that will happen for sure, at 6'5" I need a longer putter, so I'm planning on going to a 37" or 38" putter so I'm more comfortable. Beyond that, the only thing I'm pos
  14. I am looking to get some Polara golf balls (the ones that go straight) repainted to look like a legitimate brand to prank friends (and foes) alike. Where/how could I get this done convincingly?
  15. This is my question for the TST Universe, is the old two fairway wood set-up dead? The set-up: somewhere back in the year 1991 and a half, Some cool dude named Ely Callaway decided to make lofted fairway metals for his "Big Bertha" line. The 7,9, and 11 wood were made for people who couldn't 3, 4 or 5 irons. And Garfield was talking about Leo Fudge having a putt to win $100,000, after already winning the $25,000 "Funniest Pants Award". Fast forward to 2017 and a quarter, Ely's lofted woods still exist but most people prefer hybrids... To replace longer irons. rewind to 2007 and
  16. I have a Motocaddy S3 that’s developed a problem. When you plug in the lithium battery the wheels immediately engage. Pressing the speed dial does not start not stop the motor, it just keeps running. The speed dial does rotate increasing / decreasing the speed dial number. When I press the speed dial the control unit illuminates one light. When I press again with the speed illuminated all 3 lights illuminate. Does anyone have any idea on the cause and solution?
  17. Because of size limitations of uploads, and having a 13MP camera phone. I will have to do this blog in several parts. Sorry in advance. Tonight we'll start with the Driver and 4-wood. Driver: Tour Edge Exotics EX10 with a Project X HZDRUS Yellow 6.0 that plays at 44". I chose the 10° model. I went with a 44" length for two reasons, I am 6'5", and should play 45.5" or so, but I would rather have more consistent strikes. Second, I have distance to spare. So that's why. It has a Lamkin UTX grip +1/8". 4-wood: Tour Edge Exotics CBX 16.5°. Same shaft as driver, playing at
  18. So I think I figured out a way to get all of my needed pictures on here in one post. To review: Driver: Tour Edge Exotics EX10, 10° head with a Project X HZDRUS Yellow 65 6.0 shaft, Lamkin UTX Grip +1/8" , playing length of 44" 4-wood: Tour Edge Exotics CBX, Project X HZDRUS Yellow 65, 42" playing length, with a Lamkin Z5 grip also 1/8" oversize Hybrid: Tour Edge Exotics CBX 20°, with Project X HZDRUS Black 85, 5.5 this time... Standard length (40") with the same grip as the 4-wood. Now you are probably asking yourself, what in the hell is Shane doing with a Regular Flex sh
  19. Uh oh. Shane has another thread about clubs let's run and hide... No, this is a thread for a discussion. Not an, "Oh, Shane's asking about set make-up again". Originally when OEMs started strengthening lofts in their irons, the long irons were still relatively unchanged. But now, the SGI 3-iron is dead and it's been replaced by a 18 or 19° 4-iron. What is really going on? I understand the whole vertical CG, High COR, high MOI thing. I get it. But why sell these clubs in a set to high handicappers? They probably would be a good club off the tee, but it violates the Tom Wishon 2
  20. I'm interested in getting fit for an Edel putter and am willing to try either the classic or the torque balanced putters. I live in the Palm Beach, FL area and was wondering if anyone had recommendations for a fitter in either Palm Beach or Broward counties. I was also curious if anyone had experience with getting the fitting at the PGA Tour Superstore (they are listed as a fitter on the Edel website) and if there is a vast difference in getting the fitting there versus another fitter. Thanks!
  21. Hello, everyone. So, after over a decade I finally decided to buy new irons rather than continue to use the box set I bought from Sports Authority (are they still in business?). The new irons are scheduled to come in in about a week and a half and I had a couple of questions I was hoping people might be able to help me out with. 1) When I get the irons, is there anything I should do with them before I use them to practice or play? 2) Is there anything I can or should do to, for lack of a better phrase, keep them looking pretty and shiny? Thanks for any advice!
  22. Hello all, I've been spending ALOT of time researching bags before I purchase a new one. I was pretty set on a 14 top, specifically a ping hoofer 14 (pro being consensus great reviews) or calllway fusion 14 (pro being looks and some positive reviews) until I stumbled across multiple articles and forums bashing 14 ways...with a lot of folks complaining about a lot of difficulty getting the clubs in and out. I was surprised by this as this was one of the main issues that was prompting me to go with a 14 way with my current 3 way. I've read some reviews which claim that 5-7 way tops actua
  23. Hello Sand Trap World, I have been having issues with my bag setup, and am looking for a bit of advice regarding the gap between my driver and my 3 iron. I recently purchased a 3-P set of AP2s, and love them, and I previously gamed a ping G2 set 2-PW. Since they don't make an AP2 2-iron, and the set is a mite shorter than my old G2s, I am left with an open spot in my bag (I carry 3 wedges 52*, 56*,60*), and a big yardage hole between my driver and my irons. I can hit my driver about 310 yards, and can lay off it to about 275 before it starts to launch uncomfortably low. I hit my old 2 iron
  24. Hello all, I have been a long time lurker, combing through posts for club recommendations; however, I just signed up to make my first post. I am a fairy new golfer, having never played a hole in my life until 6 months ago. Since then though I have become a full blown junkie. I'm at the range or playing 4 days a week, minimum. I know that no type of at home/back yard swing trainer adequately supplements time at the range, but I was hoping that some of you may be able to recommend one "swing path trainer" over another. That may not be the correct term. I'm talking about one of tho
