  1. Looking at these pictures, the extra material AKA tongue is by design.
  2. The extra material appears to be styling only. I looked at the pictures of Brooks wearing them and they look similar. The “tongue” of the shoe is that extra material you are seeing. Again, my thought that it is styling.
  3. I walked 27 holes in wet/rainy conditions yesterday. Zero issues with the shoes. They are still by far, the most comfortable golf shoes that I have owned. I used to think that Sketchers were the most comfortable but these are WAY better. No issues with the water proofing either. My feet were dry all day walking. Still no issues with the cleat things either. They looks odd but I had plenty of traction with the shoe. No issues with sizing either. I have worn a size 13 in Nike running shoes and they fit perfect for me. No issues with the toe box as others have stated. That is me though. I had a l
  4. I had a chance to get out and walk 9 holes today with these bad boys. First off, I ordered them from the Nike website and they were here in about 10 days. I wear a size 13 which seems to be true. I wear a 13 in G Fore shoes too if that helps for sizing. Like I said, I walked 9 today and was very impressed with the ride. These are extremely comfortable. I would say they feel like a good running shoe. I do not have what I would consider a wide foot. I walked on pavement/concrete during the round and there were no issues with the cleats. I do try and stay on grass. The course that I play is what
  5. I was fit for my i500's this spring. I chose both the i210's and i500's to be my new sticks. I let the Trackman (outside) tell me what to buy. Yes the i210's did feel a little better (softer) to me but the spin rates were what sold me on the i500's. That is why I bought them and was fit for them with the DG 120 (S300) shaft (blue dot). On my miss hits, the ball still goes far and on target (for me). It might not feel the greatest but that should be the point of the mishit. The instant feedback tells me that my swing sucked and I need to adjust accordingly. I have no complaints on the i500's an

It seems that when you read these click bait types of threads that some just buy clubs because of a name and then want a specific shaft because Pro Golfer A is using it rather than looking at the numbers during fitting. I like mine. I have good days on the course and bad days. It is the Indian, not the arrow. I think the point is some people like them and others don’t. Good for both parties. My distance with the longer irons is better which makes me happy
  7. I was able to order the white and black multi cam hats with no issue. They will be here Wednesday right before the 4th of July.
  8. I am a big fan of the Sketchers shoes. They look like old man shoes but their performs is amazing. I prefer to walk when I play so good comfortable/quality shoes are important to me. I tried Ecco’s and yes, they are comfortable too but the shoes fell apart WAY too fast for the money that you spend on them. To say that I was disappointed in the quality would be an understatement. I saved Biom shoes for good course and the soles where you flex literally fell apart. Not cool. Save the money and try Sketchers. Go to a golf store and try them on. You have to at least give them a try. What do you ha

My distance with the longer irons is better which makes me happy and caused me to have to buy a new hybrid (G410 3 iron)
  10. I went from an old Callaway Razr 3 iron hybrid to the Ping G410 3 iron. I just LOVED the sound that the Razr made with a center face hit. Best sound I have ever heard. I did the upgrade because I switched irons to the Ping i500 and the Callaway was a 21 degree which did not make sense with the 4 iron i500. I went with the Tour shaft in X at standard length. I wanted the Even Flow but my golf shop said it was on back order forever so I went with the Tour shaft. I have a Golf Pride Tour Velvet with 4 wraps under the right hand. I put the head to 1 degree flat and LOVE IT! This pretty much takes
  11. I am in a similar situation. I am a 16 handicap and only like playing the better player clubs. I used to play the Callaway X20's but the offset didn't agree with my eye line. I went to the X22 Tours and played much better. I am currently with the Ping i500's. I tried both the i210's and i500's and the spin numbers were better with the i500's (for me). I would say use the launch monitor results and what feels best for you and most importantly, get what YOU want because that would make you happier. The numbers do not lie. Good luck.
  12. I am going to guess that it has more to do with marketing than anything else. If they are wearing a polo and quarter zip that is two items from the sponsors wardrobe that are getting on TV. Viewers might then be more inclined to look for those outfit combinations and purchase them after seeing them online. They are just like players trying to make a buck for their sponsors.
  13. I could care less what the guys/gals on tour are playing. I put clubs in my bag that I like and/or have been fit to me. I was fit for Ping clubs after being a long time Callaway user and have not looked back. I am now a Ping guy minus the Mizuno MP-H5 2 iron in my bag. Everything else is Ping. I am not sure why so much drama here. If you are trying to be like a tour player, then go buy what they are using on tour. Otherwise, go get fit and try the club for yourself. I am not trying to buy a game. I bought the G400 driver and 3 wood because I felt it was time for an upgrade from the G30 driver
  14. Why don't you just go demo one? You seem to be worried about what other people think about the club and people have told their opinions. What works for me might not work for you. The only way to find out for yourself is to demo one. The G400's have been out for long enough now that just about every place should have a demo stick to use. For me, I bought it sight unseen and have not looked back. My review is above.
  15. People don't want to spend more than $20 on a glove but are more than willing to spend $300+ on putters and other clubs talked about on this site. I am thinking that if you are on this site, you like golf and spend some money on quality equipment. Spend a couple extra bucks don't worry about what glove you buy. That is probably not the weak spot in your game. Just my two cents.
