Hey Brattz - I need to follow your example and start looking at what's available in a new GPS. I'm not sure whether I want a small pocket model or anoter watch. Mine works fine if I can get it to turn on, but for some reason, it doesn't seem to charge sometimes. I've cleaned the contacts like mad, but something is wrong. I tried to communicate with Garmin, but that was like pulling teeth.

Dennis,
Garmin for me are the premier company for GPS watches. Their aftersales is fantastic as well.The approach X40 is a great watch as we’ll as the class leading S60

Whoa... S60???

Just to show you where I'm coming from, mine is an S2...

Jeez, I'm old...

Hahahaha
Yeah, they've come a long way since then. The S60 is probably the most advanced watch out there and has "Swing Sense" technology so records each shot you make around the course (chips, putts not so) so you can view your stats etc afterwards on the Garmin Connect app or website.

Genuinely a well worth it investment. I also have the X40 now as a back up and to wear in the gym because it does workout activity tracking and heart rate monitoring!!!

They were £50!!!! Perfect to keep in the locker at the club with a few baskets from the range..... chipping and putting should improve 😉

STEAL! Nice result so important to have the same ball when practicing , don't see point hitting a titleist, then a pinnacle , then a srixon, you want to be consistent you need to start consistent . Have a good weekend :)

Always done that, I’ve got 2 practice bags full of Srixon Z-Star XVs that I’ve accumulated over the years. I’ve only changed from them to ProV1X this year

A wise move! Can't see past Titleist golf balls unless they started making the Maxfli HT Balata again of course :)

Consistency is the key. I’ve just moved to Titleist DT Trusoft after years of premium balls including MP-x, Prov1 and most recently TP5s. These new balls have had no effect on my control or distance (insert your jokes here) and I quite like the soft feel. And they are a third of the price. End.

I just bought 4 packs of Mizuno JPX balls because they were on a deal. I don't really like paying much for balls, but I do try to find myself some Mizuno Balls when I have the chance. Quite difficult to come by at times.

My new PX driver and fairway shafts have arrived. Went to range today, absolute dynamite. Driver has added 8yds on average when we changed the Flightscope to normalised conditions.

Also picked up a Mizuno MP-H5 3i with a tour issue Oban Oi 85g 04 flex shaft. The iron belonged to ET pro Chris Hanson...😉

Sounds a winner! Had PX Evenflow (tour issue) inan M1 driver , fantastic shaft , horrific head, you can't beat PX really.

3 iron sounds a little hand cannon! Do you think it's better to have a 3 iron with a bit of meat behind it rather than a standard 919 Tour 3 iron, can't decide

I’ve got a 818 H2 3 hybrid, JPX 919 Tour 3i, MP-H4 with a TT Black ahold 120g X Stiff Steel shaft and now got the MP-H5. I’ve bought this purely to give me a 4th Option.

1. Standard conditions - MP-H5
2. Windy standard conditions - MP-H4
3. Hard/firm Ground - JPX 919 Tour
4. Winter/Wet - Titleist 818 H2

Or at least that’s how I see it 😁

You can pick up H5s for decent money now. I just find the wider sole better on standard parkland turf rather than my JPX tour. Admittedly my only experience with it is limited but it was a little sharp on turf interaction which is why I’ll probably only use it in mooorland/links courses
