  1. I was unaware that there even was an app or that the unit needed to hook up to anything for updates or other things… To say that the user manual and online instructional info is lacking is an understatement.
  2. I was lucky enough to win a SL2 at a recent outing. Haven’t brought it to the course yet but just had a couple of questions for those that own a unit. I understand what Tournament Mode is and why that would need to be toggled on/off depending on your needs. But what is Basic Mode? Also, while it seems like a silly question, what does Touch Lock do? My unit LCD seems to act the same wether I toggle Touch Lock on or off. No other questions yet but it seems like a really nice unit that should do the job and my Bushnell Pinseeker from 2005 with slope was getting long in the tooth although still working flawlessly. I will be buying an aftermarket case for it though as the one provided I feel will offer no protection both in round use or even when tucked away in the bag from getting crushed etc… Thanks everyone
  3. What does the button back Teryllium insert design offer that the other Teryllium insert designs of the past do not? …or vice versa. Just curious from a mechanical perspective
  4. I guess Im in the minority… while the L grind is not bad I feel I’d be better suited to a T grind. The L grind to me plays like it has more bounce than you’d think… and I struggle with it on very tight fairway lies as well as in non fluffy bunkers.
  5. I find the slope function very useful. Im still using a Bushnell Pinseeker 1500 with slope feature since about 2005. If it bites the dust I’ll definitely replace it with another one that has a slope function, Just one more piece of instant data that can only help in my opinion.

    Q Star Tour

    Ive had great luck with the Q Star tours … how do they compare to the current urethane Titleist Tour Speed and the Taylor Made Tour Response?
  7. Wound up going with one I found on Amazon… high/double density 1/2” wide and 2g per inch. Didn’t weigh it as I dont have a scale. Added a one inch piece to each of my irons 4-PW, SW, and LW. The change in head weight feel was noticeable and had the best iron striking round with these clubs yesterday. I need to go get the irons properly swingweighted now as Im liking them more and need a numerical starting point. Not sure if i’ll add more but pleased with the results so far. I think the effect was mostly on my tempo and it slowed my transition down which is exactly what i need.
  8. What’s the consensus on the best brand and place to buy high density lead tape? Are there any advantages to 1/2” vs 1” if I have the choice? Ive been on Amazon as well as Golfworks and have seen mixed reviews… I think my 718’s are gorgeous and hate to mess with the aesthetic but my 1/2’ short length and move to a lighter Modus shaft still have the head feeling a bit light even with tip weights installed by Titleist. Thanks
  9. I ordered one of these today on a whim. Looked like a nice crossover between a stand bag and cart bag. Does anyone have one and what are your thoughts?
  10. Wasn’t there an option for a raw T grind at one point?
  11. My last 60 degree wedge was a gunmetal Cleveland low bounce lob wedge I bought back in 2005 I believe. A 588 I believe but not sure. I forget the bounce specs but I know it was very low. I come in very shallow on the ball and needed the low bounce to avoid blading chips and pitches off tight fairway lies and I also used my 60 most from green side bunkers laying the face open. I finally replaced my clubs and went with a Vokey L grind as it was the lowest bounce option at the time. While it is only 4 degrees of bounce Im realizing the bounce is unique on the sole and seems to play like a slightly higher bounce wedge would …at least for for me. I’m still having a hard time with getting the leading edge under the ball. Consistently blading chips and pitches from very tight fairway lies and blading more bunker shots than I ever had before. Open to any suggestions for a low bounce 60 degree wedge that can get the leading edge truly on the turf in both square and fully opened positions to allow me to slide under the ball easier. T-Grind possibly?…or anything from any other manufacturer as well. Thanks
  12. Im considering putting a Ventus red in a 7 wood as well. Was also considering a CK pro blue or an AD IZ. How do you like it in your 7 wood?
  13. Is the new Phantom 5.5 small or large thread weights?
  14. Hello all. Looking for some opinions on a possible shaft for what will be a 7 wood as a replacement to my old hybrid. I seem to get along best with shafts that are softer in the middle and firmer in the handle and tip. I currently play AD IZ 6s in my driver and love it. I also play Tensei CK Pro Blue 7s in my 3 wood and also get along great with that. I’ve never tried Ventus Red but it appears to have the similar blue board style bend profile so I wouldn’t be opposed to it either with many great reviews out there. Can anyone comment on comparing these shafts’ characteristics for what would be used in a 7 wood? Which would be considered most tip stable/stiff and how would they compare with launch and spin. Probably looking in the 70gram class to compare all 3…Thanks.
