I dont know how many on here pay attention, but **** is feeling the heat on the social media platforms. Lots of accusations being thrown their way, and I gotta say, I'm not surprised. Anyone else head over there from time to time? I do on occasion, and I gotta say, not super impressed.

    Another golf site that prides themselves on being unbiased in their testing. The forum filters here wont let you type out their name or even the initials.

    They came out a few days ago with a Speaker Review. People saw that Ampcaddy wasnt included, and next thing you know, the website in question is calling out Instagram 'golf influencers' and throwing all sorts of shade.

    I don't completely disagree. But sometimes, a little music is alright. It's when you can hear another group around you, is when it's a problem.

    I don’t know what’s happening but any review about golf speakers needs to end up plugged under the road hole bunker lip forever.

    They make earbuds so people can listen to their own music and not subject other people to it.

    Can't speak to the "speaker" reviews, but their rating metrics change every year so it's impossible to follow the "unbiased" nature of their testing if the goal posts constantly move.

    More to my point I was trying to make before it turned into a speaker thread. They can't seem to keep their tests consistent.

    They had a heck of a day getting ripped to shreds on the old instagram today. It seems as though the owners or people that run their accounts are being confrontational to anyone challenging their inputs and blocking them on the gram. I was following them
    But can’t find them anymore so I think that means they deactivated their account or blocked me.
    I personally always find these tests and this research very subjective. Anything involving a rating or grading can be torn to shreds with challenges. Nothing is absolute or scientific and variables always change. But I do, still do, presently do, enjoy reading the content. The golf ball test was a fun read. It would suck if this company fails on account of stupid marketing and the inability to handle challenges from its own community.

    Your golf doesn’t have to have music but golf can and should have music if people enjoy it. This is a game not a job. If it gets More people to have fun, play and help grow the game than it’s an asset. Anyone who doesn’t see that is a major part of why golf struggles with its image

    From interactions with their fearless leader, nothing would surprise me. Like so many moron golfers he claimed PXG was the greatest thing in the world without even touching a club. He was simply a Parsons fanboy and made that clear and followed up with a "scew you all if you don't like it" in a sad attempt to emulate Bobby and cover for his obvious paid advertisement. He's a charleton and a punk.

    And there lies the problem ... I've got no issue with people listening to tunes while golfing. But if I'm trying to putt on on #7, and I can hear you blasting Shania on your GolfAmp3000 on #12 tee box, my golf now includes your music. And courses can't regulate pace of play or proper care of divots and pitch marks, I doubt they're going to do much about volume control ... Which is a problem in my neck of the woods.

    Fair point. If music is being used I feel like it shouldn’t carry more than 10yards. However, hearing Shania (awful choice IMO 😏) isn’t anymore distracting to the guy yelling after he made a long putt.

    Wait, using numbers is a negative thing? That’s not saying “we’re smarter than you”, that’s them using objective data to back claims.

    I was kind of impressed when I first stumbled on all the club data/testing they did. #finditcutit also got my attention. But they take themselves entirely way too seriously, and have a poor attitude in my opinion. Most importantly, you can't be completely unbiased when you have advertisers on your site.

    The problem with music on the golf course is those who play music, and think they keep it low enough so no one else can hear it, really have no clue how loud their music really is. Sounds travels very well in wide open spaces.

    I got blocked a couple years ago for simply mentioning that the Ksig hype started over at golfwrx before their "break the internet prov1 vs Ksig test post". Had a 1000 post thread over here already but they claimed to be the reason for all the hype. It's all I mentioned and have been blocked ever since. They do not like to be challenged over anything, is considered a insult to their intelligence.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
