FORUM REVIEWS! – You Might Have Missed (Vol.1)

Post image for FORUM REVIEWS! – You Might Have Missed (Vol.1)

Want More Golf Gear Reviews?

Want more golf gear reviews?  Well we got just what your lookin' for!  The MyGolfSpy staff reviews tons more golf gear than you get to see on the blog...there are lots more for you to check out in the forum.  But...since some of you guys might not get time to go there...we'll bring'em here for you.  This way you don't miss out on something that might change your game for the better.  This week is Vol.1 of a new section we will be bringing to you called {FORUM REVIEWS - You Might Have Missed!}.  Yeah not the most creative name in the world...but hey it's effective.

If you haven't visited the Staff Review section on the forum you've missed out on reviews of products by Miyazaki, Matrix, TrueLinks Wear, aboutGolf, Sligo and many more.

While there's plenty of opportunity for you to get caught up on anything you may have missed, we just want you to know that we are going to start showcasing excerpts from those forum reviews here. That way you don't miss any of them.  But, before you rush off to read our older reviews, here's what we've posted in the forum over the last two weeks.

Bridgestone J40 Fairway Wood

Given how unbelievably stupid good the Bridgestone J40 (440cc) Driver performed for us when we put it through our ULTIMATE REVIEW Process (#1 The G.O.A.T), the staff at MyGolfSpy would collectively be a heard of donkeys if we didn't want to spend a little bit of time with the matching J40 Fairway wood.

As is often the case with fairway woods, the J40 plays the role the Mini-Me to the driver. In nearly every respect it looks like a scaled down version of the big dog. Of course, looks can be deceiving, and Mini-Me wasn't really that tough, so I took the J40 Fairway (14º, 3+) to our testing facility (Tark's Indoor Golf), spent sometime pretending this was going to be an ULTIMATE Review.

Golf Course Review - PGA West

Searching for Golf Mecca? (that's redundant right? Aren't we all?)

PGA WEST claims to be golf Mecca, and again and again you'll hear the Palm Springs region described as golf mecca - so is it true? Is this collection of 6 tracks the creme-de-la-creme? GolfSpy Tim recently had the chance to spend a few days at PGA West. He was fortunate enough to play 18 holes at each of the facility's 3 courses (TPC Stadium, Nicklaus Tournament, Greg Norman). In this photo-filled review, Tim breaks down the amenities, course conditions, scenery, customer service, and more.

Graphite Designs Tour AD-DI Shaft Review

This is the shaft that Tiger Woods uses in his driver. What more introduction is necessary…it must be awesome, right? There’s no question that the Graphite Designs AD-DI shaft has been among the most-hyped, most-loved shafts on the golf forums and blogs for the last year or so. But does it live up to the hype...and the sticker price?

The AD-DI is billed as a mid-kick, high-launch, low-spin shaft. The feel is definitely stout. If you don’t bring ample club head speed, or an aggressive transition, you probably won’t feel a lot of kick. That stout feel is likely why it’s such a hit among the faster swingers.

Leupold GX-4i Rangefinder Review

On a basic level, the Leupold GX-4i can be as simple to use at its brother, the GX-3i: put in a battery and go. However, the GX-4i is really two rangefinders in one, depending on which faceplate is attached.

With the chrome faceplate, the GX-4i becomes a tournament-legal GX-3i. Push the button and get your yardage.

With the yellow faceplate, the GX-4i flexes all of its muscles, adjusting your yardages for elevation, altitude, temperate, and giving you the best club for the shot. Programming the GX-4i with your yardages takes only a couple of minutes on the intuitive two button layout. You will also need to input the temperature and altitude at the beginning of your round, but this will take 30 seconds, tops.
