Unless you hit an enormous freaking hook with every swing than Shiels is useless, he rights off basically anything expensive or that works for a low spin player.

Glad to see that I am not the only one who has given up on Shiels! I was thinking that I was perhaps being a little harsh but he has gone from being the first vlogger I used to check out to being the one I will watch if I literally have nothing else to do. Him trying to move into being more of a presenter as well is horrendous. The stuff he did at The Open was awful.

jezz, i dont get all the shade at Rick. he does a decent job, i find him funny and more entertaining the Mark. i feel that people dont like him because he is successful. which is pathetic.

people can label him a sellout, but i would sell out in an instant. as would everyone.

I donít understand why people get so upset at shiels.  It must be jealousy.   Heís Just a guy that reviews golf clubs and gives opinions.  What in the world could he do to upset folks?!  Seriously folks, some of you really need to relax.  If you donít like his style, donít watch.  I donít understand why folks trash the guy for no apparent reason.

1. Rick Shiels does a good job with the reviews especially the new format
2. Good for him in getting the WS/Golf Channel gig
3. Cortex is overpriced and will do marginally better than Triton but still fail by industry standards. My guess is they didn't make many.

Shiels does just an ok job in my opinion befare crossfield straight as die crossy. I didnít really like the reviews shiels did on the mizuno woods I would see y he hates the sound personal opinion but then he disses the blue colour on the heads when games a cobra f7 3 wood in cheap tacky blue finish which is just horrible and the blue on mizunos is actually nice and Rick only uploads like 1 or twice a months at least crossfield is one or two a day with vlogs 👍🏼

Exactly. You see the same pattern everywhere. The early adopters say your cool, insightful, independent, objective. When you become popular the same people call you a sell out and "Hollywood".

Disagree about him writing off anything that works for a low spin player, after all he plays a G400 LS. He does point out that low spin drivers are not a good match for golfers with slow swing speeds.

If you're watching any of these reviewers for anything but basic information and entertainment you're wasting your time. Why? Because any club will work. Assuming it's at least a close fit, in the hands of a skilled golfer it will hit the ball straight and an appropriate distance. Does that mean it will work in your hands? Absolutely not. Conversely a club that one reviewer doesn't like may be perfect for you. If you are in the market for new clubs spend you time going to a demo day or getting a fitting instead of watching You Tube videos.

Rick is still ok, but has gotten more clickbaity with his content. "Want to hole more putts? Just do THIS!!!!" stuff like that. The fun stuff like the old clubs, the grooveless wedge, and the 750cc driver are interesting. I do miss the old vlogs with Pete, Carter, and Fryer.
His reviews are fine, no better or worse than anyone else out there. I do like that he takes clubs out on the course now. His swing speed/skill set are what they are and not comparable to the average golfer. Most reviewers aren't. His mid handicap reviews with Rob Potter were nice when he was running those.

I find myself watching Crossfield more and more recently. I couldn't stand him and the group in the vlogs when I first started watching, but they have grown on me. His reviews are fine too. He's more willing to speak his mind than some of the other guys out there.

Cortex might get some traction if the tour players are gaming them, if they don't then it won't stand a chance. Same goes for Mizuno and Srixon woods. Cobra woods are being played by their tour players and doing ok.

My neighbor just dumped his nice new TM M ? what ever for the Cortex and It is truly a contender for " Driver of the Year". Gary Woodland has seen the light and switched to Wilson.. The Cortex is not only the best looking  club driver ever, it will be the club you will want after you try it ..

Maybe we should start another thread titled “What’s Your Thoughts on Rick Shiels” just to see how far off tangent we can get and how many people we can upset???


Maybe we should have a Wilson Shootout...Triton vs. Cortex...The Ultimate Loser...

I've never seen the hate for a club like I've witnessed with the Cortex. It's like people want to be a part of the "IN" crowd, so they join in the bullying of the new kid who represents something different from the status


  You're the third comment post....  I'm # 5.   where is the HATE ?    Are you suffering from something we should all know about?

Read all the Cortex threads... The negative objectivity of this board is almost embarrassing.
TaylorMade, Callaway and Ping are the 3 ugly sisters and little Cortex wants to go to the ball!

I just think itís hilarious how much attention this club has been getting. If the M series drivers and the Flash were to be released right now, this thread would be on the bottom of the list. I wouldnít even worry about testing this club until the other OEMís release theirs in a couple of months, then go ahead and test them all against each other. For now, no sense in dropping $500 on a club that is "just as good"

You mean the OEM's that have demo heads available? With multiple shaft options to dial in? The same OEM's that have a track record of proven performance in the driver space?

Why is it so hard to fathom that Wilson has a huge perception issue to overcome?

He bags Wilson irons so I'm guessing there's some money changing hands with Wilson for some gentle reviews. As well as him being ON the informercial/TV show and collecting a nice check for that as well. He may very well love it, but he's got a lot of monatary incentive to as well.

Itís not hard to fathom they have a perception to overcome. Never said a word about that. All Iíll say is this, bar none their products are as good as anything out. Like it or not. They donít promise blind consumers 17 yards one year and then say, oh, these irons are another 10 yards per club longer the next. MAYBE you will get the point. Not trying by no means to start a pudding match.Itís well known that their marketing sucks. Yet they remain on a 2 year cycle unlike most with new products. Sure, they need more presence with their demo stuff and fitting carts. If people would , if available, just try their products maybe the light would be shed a little more. On a final note, why would people put all their faith in a review by one man alone to make their minds up on a product? If you, and I use ďyouĒ as a whole, put ones fsith in that alone. Thatís very blind indeed. Enjoy the rest of your day.
