Is this the end of tsg forum?

Recommended Posts

This seems to be the page that you get if you try and enter the forum.

so looks like no new members only the ones who are still signed in?

We appreciate it Nob, it’s not your fault it’s just how those trolls do things on the internet these days. I don’t even understand it because they might thinks it’s free marketing or something but it’s actually just extremely annoying, I’m less likely to buy anything they’re peddling if I see something like that on here. I hope it’s possible to revoke those accounts

Someone tell me why this only happens on TSG? I’m on all sorts of chat forums and have never seen anything similar.

Very sorry guys,  I don't log in very often anymore.  Working on updating the forum and figuring out what direction to take it.

Any advice or suggestions is appreciated.

Chris, more gear testing is needed. We all love reviews. I assume most of us watch youtube reviews of the latest and greatest of usdm but there needs to be an English language video or reviews of all the new JDM gear.

I second that.. since there are never any comparisons of the new USDM gear vs any JDM gear, I’m going to start comparing them myself in our launch monitor with my own clubs vs the new demo USDM gear at my shop

Hey guys,  Thank you.  

What I meant for the forum is a general direction,  keep it,  lose it,  hire someone to flow our other content into it,  any moderators wanna work with us?  Since social media it's hard to allocate time to forums as it's becoming an antiquated platform with fewer views.  While the forum members are the most vocal and hardcore in our industry it's also difficult to spend time constantly dealing with the opinions, info both good and bad and the drama involved in these types of forums. 

We are going to put more effort into:

Social Media
Blog Posts
You Tube Videos

Then possibly one of you fine gents can help us add those things to this forum and moderate?  I would compensate.

Sorry guys not much time but that's one way to get fresh stuff in here.

Last night our staff updated the forum software,  added new Anti-spam and did a little cleaning.  Sorry about the mess recently.  Anyone wanna buy some Viagra? lol

For those of us that don't do lot's of instagram/twitter/facebook then I think forums are the best place for reviews and opinions. There would be nothing better than a youtube comparison or blog between Yamaha irons and Miura, or PRGR and Epon ect.

Unfortunately I won't be doing those types of comparison videos that much so relying on other forum members for this is key.

I will say don't put much weight in others opinions about golf clubs.  Too many variables.  Players need to spend more time learning how to fit themselves,  its really easy to figure out comparisons when you consider,  size, shape, material, 1 vs 2 piece, specs, the brand's other clubs etc..

We have all bought enough clubs to be able to understand what works and what doesn't for ourselves.

Breaking down Yamaha vs Miura vs Epon vs PRGR on paper is more accurate than an actual fitting or video comparison.  The logic is clear.  1 piece is smaller heads, feels better, is usually more workable, is not as long or forgiving.  then cross reference the size of the club heads,  the tech used and what irons it competes against,  the tech, materials and specs speak volumes.  Then on another level consider where it's made and how.

Fittings are a joke now days.  It's daily that people get full club fittings at say a club champion or PXG then a couple months later switch because what was longest,  most forgiving, most accurate in the fitting doesn't play out the same way on course.  Fitting is a cookie cutter process based on the same LM numbers,  It's duplicatable so if one guy leaves another employee can be taught to do it.  the same old fitting brands and sales strategies..  No mastery whatsoever.  I long for the days fitting was done with experience and eye balls.  Now everyone is an expert at everything online with no credentials.

sorry about the rant.
