  1. 3/4/5 one length hybrids. The rest of the bag is "normal" except the putter shaft that I bent to get an 80* lie angle.
  2. 1. City and State? Lake Kiowa, TX 2. Handicap? 8 3. Where do you practice? Range 1/2 mile from my house on my Skytrak 4. Have you used a personal launch monitor before? Yes 5. Do you have a current iOS device to use with the Ernest software? Yes 6. Do you agree to take high quality photos, write an in-depth review, and be part of an on-going testing thread? Yes
  3. Check out the pics of Brendan Steele's bag. He's got the D9 Forged 4iron in the bag. Looks like he had some grind work done on the back of the sole
  4. If Betti ever adds adjustable weights to their mallets, I'll consider buying one. Seems like an easy thing to do.
  5. TaylorMade has been using the Daytona name for variations of a blade putter for years. You'd think that Callaway/Odyssey/Toulon would have enough creativity within the 3 brands to think of a name that hasn't already been used in the putter world.
  6. You can't get much less offset than these... https://truezerooffset.com/
  7. I've had such good success with these balls (yellow/orange) that I'm going to put them into play for our upcoming member guest. I love seeing the spin action around the green & for some reason, I believe I've picked up distance. The distance component really surprised me because past versions of the Q Star Tour were horrible for me. They spun too much off the tee and just sat where they landed. I recently bought 5 dozen Vice Pro Plus after playing well with a trial dozen, but the Divides are giving me more consistent & straighter distance. I tried using the color divide as an alignment aid for putting, but I found it tedious. The problem is caused by the line going all around the ball. I putt with my eyes slightly inside of the ball instead of directly over the ball, so it created an illusion that the line had a subtle arc shape and it would cause me to loose confidence in my target line. I solved the problem by positioning the ball so all I could see was the yellow side and line up the word Srixon perpendicular to my target line.
  8. I have a center shafted Betti BB54 with a spud neck. Any putter mod companies out their that can convert the lie angle to 80*?
  9. I'm currently playing the yellow/orange version of the Q-Star. It's fun around the green & the lower compression has helped me cut some unwanted spin with the driver.
  10. I played the yellow/orange on Sunday. Not hard to find at all. As people have mentioned, they are a lot of fun around the green. Chips & putts almost have a strobe effect as the colors turn. The most surprising thing to me is the distance I'm seeing with my driver. I'm in the 95-100mph swing speed range with a tendency to generate too much spin due to AOA. Something about this ball helps negate the excessive driver spin which has led to more distance.

    Let us know how the 849 Pro driver works for you.
  12. Here are some low quality screen shots of the 3 drivers shown in the above teaser gif.
  13. I had one of the crazier I've had last Sunday. I'm a 7 index, but shot a round in the mid 70s. The 1st 8 holes, I missed every green, but 1 putted each of those holes. I ended up with 25 putts total, with no hole outs. Without the crazy # of 1 putts, I would have scored like I normally do.
