  1. I'm going to attempt a brand agnostic fitting in a couple of months, but I'm kidding myself and I'm almost certain to end up with one of these. It'll be interesting to see what the best fit will be coming from a 10.5* Mavrik SZ Triple Diamond. I've been thinking about bumping down to 9* of loft to try and increase ball speed a bit. So, the higher launch of the Max might actually make sense. Visually though I think I like the looks of the Max LS better (based on photos only). I wonder what the differences are between the TD LS, TD and TD S that we've seen on the conforming lists. I know Xander has an S and Emma Talley posted a photo with the TD last night.
  2. 1. How often do you walk when you play? As often as possible. 2. Do you own or use a pushcart currently? I own a Sun Mountain speed cart, but don’t always use it. 3. Would you walk more with the Motocaddy M7 Remote? I would certainly use the Motocaddy M7 more than my current push cart.
  3. Also confirmed, it's still not spelled "rouge"
  4. 1. City, State? Green Bay, WI 2. Handicap? 1.5 3. How would the Apex Utility Wood fit into your bag? I'd love to try the 21* as a replacement for my 20* Apex 3 hybrid 4. Why do you want to test the Callaway Apex Utility Wood? While the Apex hybrid is currently the longest tenured club in my bag, our relationship is getting a bit frosty. It's time for a change there, and I think the Apex Utility Wood would fit the gap between my Mavrik 4W and Apex Pro 4 iron nicely. 5. Do you agree to take high quality photos, write an in-depth review, and be part of an on-going testing thread? Yes, absolutely. I'd absolutely love testing this club out.
  5. 1. City, State? Green Bay, WI 2. Handicap? 1.5 3. What is your current putter? Toulon Las Vegas 4. Have you ever used a L.A.B. Golf putter? No. 5. Why do you want to review the MEAZZ.1 putter? Despite my efforts my putting is still the worst part of my game. If I could improve a bit over the winter here, I think I’ll be able to get to scratch next season. 6. Do you agree to participate in an ongoing testing thread, posting reviews and photos? Yes, I’d love to.
  6. And still, spelling it correctly will be a challenge
  7. I wasn’t going to upgrade from my Mavrik TD, but if it’s a matte driver I’ll get one day 1
  8. I don't know Rogue / Rouge might give it a run for it's money. Say what you will, but at least Epic is easy to spell.
  9. If the retail Chicago goes to an H1, I'll be adding one of those to the collection when they're released.
  10. 1. Green Bay, WI 2. 1.8 3. Mavrik 4W, Apex 20* 4. My trusty hybrid has been a bit inconsistent at times this year. I had a 5W in the bag last year and loved it, so I think the bigger head of the super hybrid (and it's slightly larger head) might be a great compromise for me. 5. Yes, absolutely.
  11. Loving the looks, and the new headcovers. I have a feeling I'll be adding to the Toulon collection in the next year.
  12. - Have you hit a Ventus shaft yet? What model? Yes, I have a Black 7X in both my driver and 4w - What Ventus TX shaft do you want to win? Blue 6 TX - What club in your bag would a Ventus TX go in? Driver
  13. 1. Green Bay, WI 2. Indoors daily, outdoors 2 x / week 3. I've used Trackman and Foresight's GC before, but I wouldn't particularly consider those personal launch monitors 4. For as much as Arccos has really helped me understand my game on the course, I don't have as much confidence in my club gapping as I wish I did. Getting that data, over time, from Rapsodo would really help my confidence throughout the bag. 5. Absolutely.
  14. I love the Toulon milling, and have a pretty decent collection of their putters. But I agree with a lot of the nitpicking here too. Having a premium product is fine, but the availability and functionality of the garage has been quite disappointing to say the least. It's not a great look when it seems like the premium side of your brand is a complete afterthought. (And while the small batch stuff is cool, I just don't think it's enough in my opinion.)
  15. 1. Currently, based on Arccos data, the only thing holding me back from being a scratch player is my putting. I'd love to get some help to make some improvement. 2. 2.8 3. Green Bay, WI 4. I tend to like something with straight lines (anser 2, newport 2) versus something with curves. I'm currently gaming a mid-mallet Toulon Atlanta 5. I'd say that I have decent speed control, especially from 50 ft and in. Arccos tells me that I need the most improvement on putts between 5-10 ft. I have a sneaky suspicion that seemore's RST could help with that. 6. I play (almost exclusively) at public golf courses, but the greens are very good if not exceptional under most circumstances. They're probably not the fastest surfaces in the state, but they're definitely better than average. 7. Yes absolutely, I play a minimum of 3 times / week. 8. I'd love to, especially with the additional coaching aspect of this testing opportunity.
  16. Not yet. The date keeps bouncing around, but at the moment it's showing delivery some time next week.
  17. Clearing out some extras to help fund some new toys. I'm willing to listen to trade offers, but (fair warning) I have weird taste. All pricing includes shipping (as long as the shipping costs/preferences are reasonable). First up I have a Ventus Black 7X, purchased from Will Peoples and gamed for a year. It has a Callaway adapter, and a Golf Pride Tour Velvet Midsize grip. You can see the condition in the photos. It will play at 44.5". $old Next up is a pair of used FootJoy Icon Black wingtips in size 13 Wide. I've worn these for 2 or 3 rounds and they have some creasing. There's plenty of life left in them, and they've been well taken care of. They're just a tiny bit too wide for me, and I'd rather save someone a few bucks than leave them sitting in the closet forever. $old
  18. Callaway's newest tour truck media guy weighed in on this over on his new subreddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/CallawayWorldofWunder/comments/mbfe7x/epic_speed_101_an_introduction/gry4s5c/
  19. Same. I've tried convincing myself that I'm going to play most of my tournaments this season with my current clubs. (this probably won't be successful, but seems at least worth the effort)
  20. Ordered mine at the end of Feb, and they've showed everything from now-ish to early June (and the date changes frequently). I've been told it's the MMT's causing the hold up. Seems odd that the "stock" shaft would be on backorder, but these are weird times. I can be at least semi-patient.
  21. 1. Green Bay, WI 2. 2.9 3. Odyssey Toulon San Diego 4. Studio Stock 28 Putter 5. Yes, courses are open and I'm playing at least twice a week until it snows again. 6. Absolutely, I'd love to.
