I was just reading the Chromax M1x review and was instantly thinking...did a woman write this?
Not a slam to anyone who plays them, mind you - only made me think...
It'd be good to know who wrote the reviews. That might help me realize if the review was relevant to my game.
For example, if it's a player who's a single-digit handicapper, with a 110mph swing, their opinion would be different than perhaps a 30-handicappper with an 85mph swing.
That's probably a bit more info than most would want to add to a review, but perhaps something as simple as a reviewer's profile? If it's an external review, does it get credited as such? or does GolfBalled even do that?

Just curious and think that adding that bit of info might add to the articles.
Thanks! -- P.J.

Just to clarify, I wasn't slamming anyone (as I stated), my initial thought was Chromax are a ladies ball, so I was curious if a woman had reviewed it...and if so, then their swing/game is probably not much like mine (on most days! :P ).
Wow, this place loves the drama lately, hunh?!?
