  1. Do any of you guys use this on a cart? Saw another post how the cart strap shredded the synthetic leather. Was looking to get the 3.0 but held off because of that post.
  2. Thanks for calling me dumb ... but in my defense, I liked the shaft I was fit with but I couldn't find it anywhere (BST, eBay, DallasGolf).
  3. LOL ... I'd want that too! The difference though is that I don't think the jewelry stores are saving the platinum and reselling that same platinum to other customers. And if they are, they're not making a lot of money off of it. CC is keeping $100 worth of product which was paid by the customer. It's 20% of the value of the driver.
  4. Yes, I was told by them that they do it. The location I went to had a build area where they said they assembled all their clubs there ... do they not do the assembly themselves?
  5. ***Update*** There are over 50 comments so far and I feel a lot of those comments didn't read the post fully. I don't blame you ... it's a long a** rant. So I'm putting a TLDR version so this thread doesn't get too off topic. ----------TLDR ---------- When you buy a golf club with upgraded shaft from an OEM, they're cheaper than retail. Ventus w/ Velocore has an upcharge of $250 when retail is $350. This is because OEM's discount the cost of stock shaft which is baked into the original driver cost. Club Champions charges full retail for the driver, which I'm t
  6. None of the local fitters had Sik Armlock putters with LAGOLF shafts so I bought both the Pro and the Flo to do my own fitting/test. The Pro won it out for me which means someone is going to get some savings on the Flo. I'll probably post a review comparing the two putters soon. * Only trades I'd be interested are SM8 52* (F-Grind) w/ ProjectX 6.5 or 56* (S-Grind) w/ ProjectX 6.0 * All prices include USPS Priority Shipping and PP SIK FLO C-Series Armlock It's in flawless condition. Testing was done indoors on Perfect Practice mat. Retails for $879.99+ta
  7. I've been in the market for a Flightscope X3 and GCQuad for a few months now (had a different thread asking for ppl's opinion). Every time I speak to someone about it, they mention that they'd be willing to pay to use it once or twice a month which got my brain thinking about offering a Launch Monitor rental service. It'd have to be local and we'd have to figure out logistics and insurance, but wanted to hear your feedback. This is essentially my market research: 1. Would you rent a Flightscope X3 or Foresight GCQuad? 2. How often would you rent it and for what duration (numb
  8. Thanks guys for the reply. For some reason I didn't get notifications on this thread so thought it was dead. I was leaning X3 for the following reasons: Price - Foresight offered a discount to get Quad w/ club head data for $16500. Flightscope offered X3 at $13,620 (club head, chipping, and putting data). Actual data - X3 is calculating what the ball is actually doing, I'm curious to learn more about how conditions affect my game and want to see actual ball flight vs simulated ball flight. Environment Simulator - be nice to set parameters to the place I'm traveling t
  9. I'm glad they're working on it too. I didn't even bother renewing my City Card. I've been driving all the way out to Chino Hills to play at Los Serranos. Able to get there from Santa Monica in 40 mins without traffic. If you get their Players Card, weekday rates are $43 with cart and small bucket. The South course is especially fun. They used to play the LA Open there before changing it to Genesis Open and moving to Riviera. It's a long course and I'd rank it better than any of the LA Muni courses. Rounds are around 4.5-5 hrs and course is usually in great shape.
  10. I called the main office and told them all they need to do is require basic CAPTCHA but it's the City of LA ... all they care is that the payments are going through.
  11. LA City courses are allowing walk-ons now. Got to Rancho early last week and figured I'll just hit the range if I can't get on. Was lucky there was a no-show so was able to get on. According to the guys that were able to get tee times, there are a few people getting City Cards booking tee times with bots as soon as they become available and they're reselling them for a surcharge of $10 per person. They wouldn't share their contact with me since they didn't want more competition or for me to report the guy and they lose out on their privilege.
