  1. I don't mind the preorder when you're starting up if you have say 100 units on their way and you want to open a limited time preorder to gauge demand but if you're going to use your website as basically a kickstarter you should let people know what they're getting into beforehand. They obviously aren't limited the number of preorders because you can still buy one and they're even on sale at a discount right now. For all we know they've never delivered a single unit and they are already on sale. Nice company.
  2. The scam part is they tried to fund their startup with their customers' money. They probably made a couple on a 3D printer, got the TXG guys to promote it, took in a bunch of preorder money and then realized having product made in Asia and shipped here wasn't as easy as they thought. Now they have all the money from preorders tied up into tooling and upfront costs and can't afford to refund anyone. This type of business practice is unethical at best and unfortunately for the people that preordered it was really hard to see coming seeing that you took advice from TXG which is a trusted source. Hopefully next time TXG decides to promote a product they do a little more research considering their reputation is also on the line...
  3. Callaway Rogue Sub Zero 15 degree with an Aldila 15th Anniversary 80 Tour X shaft. Plays 43” with a tour velvet. The paint is very clean and the face shows some wear. This thing is a rocket launcher with this shaft in it. $100 shipped in the US.
  4. It really is kind of a culture change to get a good pace of play. The course I'm at now is a resort that also has a private membership. One of our courses is really hard so we aim for 4:30 pace of play. We have GPS in all the carts and the Pro Shop monitors them constantly. They're really good about sending a message to a group if they are out of position and if they don't catch up someone from the shop will ride out and try to get them moving. I really think the best way is to just monitor the pace of play and be friendly about helping slow groups catch up. I think if you have a good ranger you can get it done. Our guys will stay with the slow group to help them look for balls, rake bunkers and pull pins until they catch up and it seems to work out really well but our resort fee is pretty high so they're not necessarily dealing with typical daily fee golfers. The public course I mention earlier that did the under 4 or it's free did it on Fridays and it bombed after a couple months. They called it fast pace Fridays and it seemed like a good idea at the time but it just didn't work.
  5. One of the courses in my area tried it about 5 years ago and it lasted for a couple months. Part of the deal was you agreed that if you fell behind pace you'd skip holes to catch up or you'd be asked to leave. The problem is it only takes one group to be over 4 hours and then every group behind them is playing for free. I personally would rather promote fast play as opposed to rewarding slow play because if you're at 3:55 putting on 18 what's stopping you from lining up your putt for an extra minute or two in order to get your round free? Usually you can see what the pace of play is going to be after nine holes so I think you'd be better off saying that if you make the turn in two hours or less stop in between nines and each person in your group will receive a free drink coupon for after the round. 1-gets customers in your clubhouse between nines 2-It rewards fast play.
  6. The wear on the five pulls is really just from being scrubbed clean. There aren't any thumb grooves and they were played for less than 10 rounds.
  7. I can guarantee all grips are authentic. Five of them show some wear and we’re pulled from a set of Callaway irons. The other six, five green and one red, came directly from Callaway uninstalled. $80 shipped.
  8. Current model no logos and enhanced alignment. $130 shipped.
  9. They’re x100 and in mint condition. They are 5-P with the 5-9 playing standard length in a set of T100s and the P is uncut with the top prepped. The 5-9 have Tour Velvet Midsize grips installed. All tips are prepped and ready for install. $110 shipped.
  10. All are unused and .60r. Assorted colors. $60 TYD.
