TomTom Golfer 2 GPS Watch
TomTom Golfer 2 GPS Watch
Price: $249.99
2 used & new from $169.11

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple to use and very useful shot tracker for those that love stats or want to improve, June 28, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The Golfer 2 is very lightweight and comfortable. The clasp takes some getting used to and adjustment. I'm not a small person, but I had to set the wrist clasp to the smallest setting! Epson uses this style of clasp on their Pulsesense and I never liked it fully.

The Golfer 2 has a joystick interface (the big button below the screen) that is easy to use. The biggest selling point is the auto shot tracking. The GPS distance to the green (front, center, and back) is pretty common on any GPS based shot tracker. Having it on your wrist (like the other competing products) speeds up pace of play because a glance at your wrist is all that's needed to determine distance. The auto shot tracking is neat, because it works similar to Gamer Golf without having to tap the club against a sensor (or forgetting to do so). To keep stats of your individual clubs, I suppose you have to go back into the round data and make changes manually.

Overall: 5/5 stars, thoroughly impressed after trying numerous GPS golf watches

3.0 out of 5 stars Not much value. Teaches common sense theory to healthy lifestyles, June 28, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This book primarily advertises for the author's Spartan Races. You've probably seen these races being advertised, or other similar mud/obstacle course runs (Tough Mudder, Warrior Dash, etc...) The Spartan Fit book covers (in great detail) the history of Sparta, their warrior ethos, and training regime. The book covers recommended workouts, diets, and lifestyle routines. That being said, it's not a particularly useful book for those looking to improve their workouts unless they are starting from absolute scratch. As someone who has done obstacle course/mud races, and trains on a daily basis, I didn't find much value in the book - a lot of the concepts (like going to sleep at 8PM) are just common sense for a healthy lifestyle. The keys are: moderation and discipline.

Overall: 3/5 stars


How to Drive: Real World Instruction and Advice from Hollywood's Top Driver
How to Drive: Real World Instruction and Advice from Hollywood's Top Driver
Price: $10.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Too advanced for a new driver, kind of boring for a gearhead, June 28, 2016
I enjoyed Ben Collins' earlier books, but this one was far too simple for advanced readers and too advanced for beginner drivers. A lot of the concepts explained are sound, but some are just his opinion. For example, using the floor as a pivot surface for your clutch foot. That works well on older cable clutches, but a lot of the newer vehicles with hydraulic clutches have a very small engagement point where the foot is practically off the pedal (the same goes for hydraulic clutches on motorcycles). So if I kept my heel on the floor, I'd never reach the usable friction zone with the clutch. I found the easiest way would be to use the entire leg - but it depends on the clutch design of the vehicle.

Overall: 3/5 stars, not quite as good as his earlier books. In my opinion, it would be too advanced/detailed for a person learning to drive but it is too simple for someone who's already read all of the "classics" on racing, suspensions, chassis setup, or who is a gearhead.

5.0 out of 5 stars No complaints, typical toaster oven, June 26, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a typical toaster oven. I found its performance and function to be similar to Black and Decker and a myriad of other comparably priced toaster ovens. They are great for Ellio's frozen pizza, french fries, and other small food items that have to be baked but a normal oven is too big or overkill. It's easy to use and clean

Overall: 5/5 stars

5.0 out of 5 stars Grips and grips!, June 25, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I was going to the dollar store to buy a new pair of tweezers but went to a regular store and looked at some name brand tweezers. They were all in the same price range as these tweezers! In this case, these tweezers used fully ground tips, so they definitely provide positive grip/clamping because of the machining process.

5.0 out of 5 stars IMHO better than Pearl Izumi, June 25, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The 4D chamois is much better than any of Pearl Izumi's chamois, including their Elite/Pro top of the line chamois. The SANTIC chamois is not only thick and supportive, but it provides enough cushioning to make it more comfortable for a longer ride and prevent blisters/chaffing. My Pearl Izumi Quest only lasted 4 years (the spandex material is pretty much dead), so I'll have to see how long the SANTIC lasts.

Overall: 5/5 stars

4.0 out of 5 stars Could have been a more durable material, but otherwise easy to install, June 25, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The fabric material is sturdier than paper, but it doesn't look like it will last for a decade. It relies on the plastic center holder to remain in position/shape. Rather than rely on the adhesive, I used 3M velcro (hook and loop fastener tape) strips for the center holder and the outer edges of the "fan". The fabric is opaque enough to block out sunlight, but allow enough light to diffuse through to keep the room bright. I wanted this for my arched window because the morning sun (from 7AM to 11AM) blasts right into my living room and kitchen, heating up the room and making it impossible to watch TV. This shade cuts down all of the glare and heat.

The velcro also allows the shade to be closed/opened. I had to trim the shade by about 1 inch, and it was easy to do with a sharp knife. The cardboard ends are harder to cut through than the shade material.

Overall: 4/5 stars

4.0 out of 5 stars Could use a bigger reservoir and an easier to open lid/nozzle, June 25, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The lid is a bit hard to open/close. The twisting motion is the opposite of what we are used to with right hand threads. For this steamer, clockwise opens the lid and anticlockwise locks the lid. The water supply in the reservoir will handle about 1 or 2 articles of clothing.

Overall: 4/5 stars

5.0 out of 5 stars Well made, great for 12 gauge chokes, June 25, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These are well made tubes. I use them for storing extended 12 gauge chokes (the ones with knurled ends). The problem is that the knurled end will stick out, but these tubes make it easier to organize them in a choke holder case.

The older ones I bought were too short, but these measured 3-1/8" long just as advertised.

Overall: 5/5 stars

Mitutoyo 155-122, 1/2" to 3/4" Telescoping Gage
Price: $29.20

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent quality, easy to use, great price, June 25, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This worked perfectly for measuring the bore of a shotgun as well as the various chokes. I used a Mitutoyo caliper in conjunction with this bore gauge.

Overall: 5/5 stars
