  1. [quote name='TM_HOYER' timestamp='1337617218' post='4951106'] Your choice should depend on what you are looking for. If you are looking for a yardage book replacement to help you decide where to hit and the yardage to hazards and other targets, a GPS is way to go. If you are looking primarily for yardage to the pin, then laser would be the way to go. Also if you play a lot of different courses that you are not familiar with, the GPS would be the better choice. If you play the same course all the time and know what club to hit off the tees already, a laser would be your better choice. [/quote
  2. I was involved in the beta test and they did not have the shot tracking feature. Not sure if the new version will have it, but I kind of doubt it as they would probably want to test it befor releasing it. However, the unit works great! Thumbs up.
  3. [quote name='Wooderson' timestamp='1337603390' post='4949854'] That is shocking to me because I don't know much about the golf equipment business. I have never heard of Golf Town, or seen one of their stores. I would have thought Golfsmith was the largest golf retailer in America. Does anyone know how the golf equipment retailers rank? [/quote] Not sure about the accuracy, but an employee at Golf Galaxy told me that Golftown was somehow related to Golf Galaxy, either run by the people that used to run Golf Galaxy or something like that. Again, just for conversation and no idea on accur
  4. Great price. The ignites are their entry level set (at least in terms of pricepoint). Not sure with how their performance is, but my friend bought this set for $150 which is a good price. I see this set sell for $150-$300, so $99 is definitely a good price.
  5. [quote name='Nessism' timestamp='1337522708' post='4945622'] Most common grips are made by a molding process followed by sanding down the surface to create the rough texture. With use the outer surface of the grip becomes smooth as the roughness wears away and oils from your hands embedded into the rubber. To renew the grip you need to both remove the oils AND restore the original texture, which is why I recommend the scotchbrite pad scrub down. A nylon brush to scrub the grip will not produce the same results. [/quote] good tip for people with the more "rough" texture. This would incl

[quote name='FLOGMR' timestamp='1337534643' post='4946260'] [quote name='Howard Jones' timestamp='1337528381' post='4945898'] Shaft Torque means ZERO to performance, so why should grip Torque ? - Get the head square at impact, then forget the rest. There is at least 50 other parameters were a serious headache might come to play, but grip torque is NOT one of them, its a "No issue" in fitting and club performance. Comfort, Traction, Size, Taper or not, or how much, and Grip weight is whats important with grips, and those parameter do influence, but grips toque does nothing at all. [/quo
  7. Westley's Tire Cleaner with "Bleche-Wite" I run water over the grip, spray with Westleys and clean with a toothbrush. Rinse well. So far, this is the best result I've had for my White Iomic Grips. Works a lot better than dishwashing liquid or soap. Depending on what type of grip you have, I don't recommend anything abrasive like the soft nylon bristle brushes or the scotchbrite pad, like the poster said, it may ruin your grip depending on what it is. I've ruined a few of my iomic grips using the soft nylon brushes and other experimental cleaning agents like Magic Eraser. To be fair, I

[/quote] Iomic has done research on grip torque, the results of which are summarized in the link below. [url="http://www.iomicgrips.co.uk/technology.html"]http://www.iomicgrip...technology.html[/url] [/quote] All grips will twist slightly with enough force....softer ones more and harder ones less.......this is not rocket science....don't get lost in the
  9. [quote name='Zurb' timestamp='1337365258' post='4938608'] Torque from a grip? they are rating that now? Interesting. Sooo... I'm a 5 hcp with a high swing speed... I am 6'3" with relatively big hands so I use the Winn Excel in oversize. [url="http://www.winngrips.com/soft-grips/excel"]http://www.winngrips...oft-grips/excel[/url] They are soft.. and I have NO issues. In fact, I enjoy them because I don't play with a glove and the larger grip helps me quiet my hands through the hitting zone. Don't over analyze your grip choice. Pick something that you like. My only consideration is how
  10. Other than feel, does torque matter?How do you pick golf grips? Is it strictly on feel? Does swing speed matter? I used to read the different grip manufacture websites as before a lot of them had certain grips compatible with different swing speeds. The faster you swing, the less torque or twisting of the grip you want, so some of the really soft grips were only for slower swing speeds. However, I've noticed that a lot of the sites have gone away from that and do not even ask your swing speed when they select a grip for you (ie: grip selectors on websites based on certain questions).

[quote name='JoEY C' timestamp='1335965291' post='4830898'] [quote name='idiotbox' timestamp='1335964590' post='4830836'] i have two and they work perfectly. i personally use a fine tipped sharpie and haven't had a problem. [/quote] Thanks for the reply. Which 2 do you have? Im only asking becuase ive bought the cheaper one from sports authoirty and they have came out like crap [/quote] if it comes out sloppy, it might be cause you need an ultra fine sharpie. Mine is custom and will work well with only the ultra fine sharpie.
  12. Please reply once you or anybody find out where to get those and pricing. It kind of looks like those pitch and putt tubes (usually individual tubes put together that also have a spike on the bottom so you can just stick it into the ground so it's upright). I can't tell if they do or not, but it seems to be a good idea if they did. Save a lot of time (and your back) bending over picking it up all the time. Wanted to add a link: something like this?

  13. I have a clicgear and would buy it again. However, if you're asking if it's definitively a lot BETTER than other carts, it's not. All the top quality ones out there are about the same and will roll just fine and with ease. Out of the two options you mentioned, clicgear or the microcart, you have to ask yourself what is important to you. The microcart's main advantage is that it folds up small, light, and most importantly, FLAT. This is huge when you try to put things into the trunk. The clicgear folds up fairly small too but because it's not flat like the microcart, you won't be able to
  14. Does GPP use Fedex? Most other sites use or have an option for UPS ground and seem to have much much better shipping rates. Perhaps they would be more competitive with another shipping option. I would of purchased many times but their shipping rates have ALWAYS held me back and made me purchase elsewhere.
  15. Tour i or Tour ix at Lostgolfballs.com AAA Quality for $5.99/dozen. Hard to beat at 50 cents a ball.
  16. Where to buy?Trying to find and buy this particular ball, either new or recycled is ok. Anybody have ANY idea on any place that has these in stock? I specifically am looking for the purple color. Thanks in advance to anybody that can point me in the right direction!
  17. [quote name='thatboygaule' timestamp='1333312118' post='4625251'] Hey there, just wondering what the cheapest rangefinder out there is, or if they are any good [/quote] bushnell pin pro is just under $100... then there are also your hunting branded ones but make sure they have the closest target settings and not the the furthest.
  18. [quote name='gbh00' timestamp='1333328094' post='4626795'] I'm in the market for a nice rangefinder. I think I've decided that one without the 'slope' feature is ok. My friend has a Bushnell V2 that I've used and I'm leaning towards buying that one. I've been quoted a price of $260. Do you all have any ideas about what to look for in a rangefinder? Do I need 'GPS"? I'm mostly looking for something that I can point and shoot. Thanks. [/quote] If you can, try to test out the model at your local golfshop or hunting/outdoor store (if you don't need a golf branded rangefinder). The key is t
  19. All the name brands seem to be about the same, it comes down to the individual and what you want or need in a bag. Make a list of all the features you want/need and then see which ones fit the bill. I'm sure the build quality will be similar/close between all brands. All brands and models may and do break somehow, so check the warranty and usually top manufacturers have a great warranty on their products. I've always thought historically, Sun Mountain makes really ugly bags but their recent lineup seems a lot nicer...
  20. [quote name='northgolf' timestamp='1332196237' post='4538591'] [quote name='Smooth spin scott' timestamp='1331946041' post='4522501'] can use in any round and can post handicap. Sometimes tourneys have local rules but haven't run into any that I've played in. Pros can use in practice rounds. Couple words of advice....don't drop it, don't forget it on the tee block and never ever give your playing partners yardage if you're playing for cash [/quote] What, you don't mutter to yourself "175, 175,175" while looking in your bag for your club for the back pin that you just lasered at 157?
  21. Looks like it almost ready for relaunchAn update for the upro mx... hopefully, this time around will be much better. My unit has worked great and hard to imagine a better unit especially for the price! Looks like there might be a relaunch of the upro mx soon... Dear upro mx user, We are pleased to announce the release of a new, free software update for the upro mx GPS device. This update is designed to deliver improved stability and bring meaningful enhancements to your user experience. The update is available to you for immediate download as a registered upro mx user at http://www.callawa
  22. There are no training aids (that are actually marketed as golf training aids) that are a universal must for everybody. It depends on what you need help with. However, the following would probably be as universal as it comes: 1. Mirror 2. High Speed Video Camera 3. Instructor/Pro that can teach you what to look for so you can see what you are actually doing!
  23. Anybody else try it before? I just saw it at a golfshow today and it seemed very interesting. Both of my friends that tried it could easily tell that they were casting or flipping the club because the whistle was well before the impact of the ball or on the "backside". I personally suck with listening for this stuff so I couldn't really tell. If you could tell, I'm sure it still would give you immediate feedback on whether or not you were flipping or casting... interested in hearing other people's opinions. Price at the show was $15 CAD for one or 3 for $35 CAD
  24. If you're not against buying recycled (used) golf balls, Callaway Tour ix could be had for under 50 cents/ball, as well as Taylormade Pentas.
  25. I use my customized tin-cup ([url="http://www.tin-cup.com"]www.tin-cup.com[/url]) with my customized golfball stamp ([url="http://www.golfballstamp.net"]www.golfballstamp.net[/url]).
