Anyone on here signed up with them? Is it legit?

Looks like it’s $30/mo and you get a new driver to try out every 90 days with the option to purchase if you like it.

They’re adding Titleist to their lineup soon according to their FB page.

the only issue I have with it is you are in $360 dollars per year.   (unless you can walk away for winter) I would assume you would be liable for damage and for the cost you could buy a new driver every year and tradein/ sell your old one for less.   Many golf shops will do 60-90 day trials with clubs so I would assume that is a better route.

I read some comments on FB where guys quit their service during the winter months and plan to renew in the spring. After 90 days, apparently you can cancel with no questions asked.

OK - here's what I am looking for:

2500 golfers/year, paying $30/month, but can opt out of 6 months/year due to winter - for this they get 1 round/month for a foursome at my course.

So - they only pay $180/year instead of $360 - the question is: how much value do they get from their "investment"

I would assume that anyone paying $30/month for anything would do better simply paying for what it is that they want, whether it is a driver, actually playing, etc.

Just my POV - YMMV

If you're just looking to use the newest driver for the year or less, I think it's a good idea. I like that they will discount the rate after a year or will let you buy the driver.

If you're someone who wants to tinker (try different shafts, length, swingweights, etc.) or you're someone who beats up a driver, it's probably not for you.

If you just want to demo a driver for 3 months, I think there are better ways to do that.

I think this is pretty good for someone who loves a new driver every season.  You do a subscription for 9 mos/ $270 a year and get a new driver every year instead of shelling out $500 plus at a retailer every year.  Anyways I saw it on FB,  just wanted to see if anyone was doing it.

Played golf with the guy who founded this a few months back. He lives here in Austin, was a great guy, and a damn good golfer. I also know a few of his customers, and they are happy.

He had a few drivers in the bag and was letting the other players in our group test them out. I couldn't, but I asked him about options for someone like me (play driver 2" over. I'm 6'9" with short arms), and he said they can order different specs and figure out how to accommodate just about anyone.

Cool idea.
