  1. Still impressed with the Srixon XV. 8 rounds into my testing. I am considering gaming the ball going forward. The durability is a limited concern, but all around performance has been great. Not all balls have suffered cosmetic damage, only 3 of the 9 balls I have played have had any real issue. I had to replace one ball in play due to a crease. I really like it around the greens -- this was the biggest surprise. Thanks again GolfWRX and Srixon for the nod for testing. I has been fun and eye opening.
  2. CWilk, appreciate your updates. Enjoy those times with your son! Note, the XV is closer to the ProV1 than the ProV1x since Titleist switched them up 4 years ago. The ProV1x definitely is the higher spinning ball of the 2. I would be really interested in the numbers/data between the XV and ProV1 if you can test. I do not have this capability. Other Testers: Really enjoying the different perspectives on the Srixons. Thanks for participating. My update is as follows: Played 4 rounds now with the XV and had chipping and putting comparisons directly to the ProV1. I
  3. Hey GolfWRX. I was selected for the Srixon ZStar testing. Got my dozen yellow ZStarXV balls this week. Took them out to the course today. First, I am in Wichita, Kansas. I carry a 2 handicap. I have been playing the Titleist ProV1 for the last 6 years. What is most important to me with a golf ball is how it does in the wind and workability. Spin is a must around to greens. I have not switched brands balls for the last 8 years -- so I am a loyal Titleist guy. I did try the new ProV1X earlier this year, but opted against it because it was too spinny for windy Kansas for m
  4. I had the same issue earlier this year - really odd pain. Saw a ortho surgeon who specialized in shoulders (and a member by my club). I was diagnosed with inflammation in the shoulder joint (from some unknown injury) that caused my shoulder to hurt and caused it to become partially immobile/frozen (which then caused my rotator cuff to weaken). Doctor gave me a cortisone injection in the shoulder joint for the inflammation then prescribed 6 weeks of physical therapy. Tough physical therapy because I had to put my shoulder in the exact position to cause the pain and hold it to "remobilize it
  5. 1. City and State? Wichita, KS 2. Handicap? 2 3. What ZX ball do you want to test? ZStar XV 3. Are you able to test equipment on a golf course with one week of its receipt? Yes 4. Current golf ball? Titleist ProV1 5. What do you look for when buying a new golf ball? I am in windy Kansas. I look for a ball good in the wind that performs around the green. 6. Do you agree to participate in an ongoing testing thread, posting reviews and photos? Absolutely.
  6. Excess solvent + funnel = Reuse everytime.
  7. Iomic USA is easy to find and order from. I find they last way better than any Golf Pride grip that I have used in the past.
  8. The fake Iomics are slicker than the real ones. They are a little more harsh on the hands as well at first, though when they wear, they are fine. Overall, they are not terrible and will last for a few seasons. They are just not as good as the originals.
  9. At the end of the day, does it have the top configuration/dividers you like? Does it have the pockets arranged like you want? Do you like the color? If it meets these criteria, you are good to go.
  10. My TR20v's are as solid as any club I have hit in a long time. Forgiving for a CB blade. Very soft. Minimal offset. Was fit by a Honma fitter and had a really good experience. Feel is subjective, performance is not. Can work these babies both ways. They flat out perform for me. I like the matching gap wedge a lot! The Honma irons are stronger lofted -- so take that into consideration. I find they launch a little lower than my T100s irons too. Very pleased with my purchase. Historically, I found the Srixon irons a little clanky. Have not hit them in the las
  11. Been playing them for years. Most versatile lob wedge our there. Concur with previous posts. You won't be disappointed.
  12. Zero off-set Scratch AR-1 irons get my vote. Hands down best iron I ever played.
