I would love to attend as many as possible especially Callaway or Titleist but for some reason none of the manufactures don't like to schedule them in Arizona. :(

They're an ideal way to get a launch monitor session (free) and to compare different head/shaft combinations on same. Problem is, there aren't any very close to me (usually a 100-150 mile drive) and they can be stressful. Stressful in that the demo staff and store staff like to assume that everyone who demos equipment will purchase $1000 worth or so; also that the lines can get pretty long. I did a Cleveland demo last year, and a lot of their demo equipment wasn't in A-1 shape--especially the grips, which in some cases were so slick you couldn't hang onto the club. I guess of the available options, I'd rather go to a Golfsmith or Golf Galaxy and demo their off-the-rack equipment. There's the same rather pointed focus on your buying something (at least, that's what I sense), but everyday crowds aren't as large.

I love demo days. My favorite is the all vendor demo day at Golfsmith in Austin. It's really the only one I make a priority to attend and I plan my day around it every year.

For a ho like myself it doesn't get much better than walking from tent to tent and getting try virtually every oem club on the market.

I am not looking for new equipment now and will not attend. The vendors usually come up to our place 1 or 2 at a time on rotating Saturdays in the Spring and set up a tent...so I will indeed hit much of the newer stuff over a series of weekends..

Already did. Made me realize the G2 was better for me than the 905. It also made me realize my 983 was still better than 95% of the "new" drivers out there....

I also discovered Sonar Tec. THE best hybrids I've hit.

Ok, I know that Silver will think this is contrived, but the site golfclubdemo.com is very cool for trying new stuff. Looks like a netflix for golfers.

Have you tried this service yourself? As far as I can tell from your posts, you haven't.

It may have been coincidence with the posts about it back to back that Silver touched on, but you're not helping your situation by dragging it through the mud.

And the fact that the link in your listed website on your User CP has a link to the demo site as well.

Your sheep's clothing is starting to show the wolf a bit here....
