  1. Really incredible (and last minute) opportunity with this one - Old Course Reversed Giveaway
  2. Three days left in this giveaway. Check out the Instagram link to enter. Thanks!
  3. Hi all. Currently running an Instagram giveaway for a forged set of irons (either half set or full set depending on entries): JustGolf Forged Irons Giveaway Entries require a like, follow, and comment with a tag. Please make heavy use of the Instagram Contest Crew (for tagging) thread. Let me know if you have any questions about the clubs or the giveaway. Thanks!
  4. Haha, it’s not a Michigan bag, but a Metalwood Studios x Jones bag I picked up in a mystery bag sale. I like it for photos though. Very nice. I actually had my vendor put a prototype wedge together for me which is really similar. This is my current gaming bag (except the putter which is still up for grabs)
  5. Thanks! Be sure to let me know what you think.
  6. I now have full sets of the blades, still looking just as good as the half set IMO. Send over a message if you want more info or follow me over on Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/cory.justgolf
  7. Very cool! I hadn't seen their stuff before.
  8. I like having blades to mess around with even if (purely based on skill) I shouldn't be hitting them. The minimalist designs of a lot of the DTC brands out there also caught my eye, so I wondered why anyone hadn't taken it to the extreme and designed a blade with absolutely no branding on it whatsoever. Starting chatting with a rep for head manufacturer in China that produces the irons for some of those DTC brands, mocked something up, and asked for a 4 club sample. These were the results and honestly I couldn't be happier with how they turned out. I decided to ask them to produce a limited number of them (assembled sets and head only). Production will take a couple months and I'll see where that goes. https://www.instagram.com/cory.justgolf/
  9. Picked these up from the Bay on a whim and, at least for the moment, they are fantastic. Bridgestone PRO 640S irons, 3-S (wedge setup is P, P/S, S) Problem is that I can't find any info on them anywhere, in English or Japanese, besides a few other for sale listings. They don't seem to be super old, but do have an older NS Pro logo for the shafts than the current one. Additionally, from other old listings, it seems like there was a Pro 640m model (rounded blade with no muscleback like these have) and a Pro 640c model (cavity back), but again no info. Would love to track down the year and the specs would be great. Any thoughts out there?
  10. Been a couple of months, so figured it's time to check back in and see how things are going! I've probably played ~30 rounds on the GEN5 clubs now and they are all still in the bag. Not at my country club anymore, so the rounds have been on LA-area munis. Short version, the fairway wood, hybrid, and wedges are simply better than the 0211s. Both in feel and performance. For the irons, the GEN5 definitely feel better, but I wouldn't say they have made a MASSIVE difference to my game. I don't really try to work the ball much with my irons, so with similar distance & dispersion, they do the same job, just in a different way. That said, the feel difference is real (especially in the lower irons) and they are great quality clubs. If price is no object, then you want the GEN5s. The 0211s remain the best new club value out there though. My handicap is back down around a 7, dropping a couple strokes since I've been gaming these clubs. A lot of that comes down to short game and putting. Around the greens, I do think having the high quality, forged wedges are making a difference with spin and the shots I can make. Part might be better technique, but the wedges also seem to let me get the most out of improved technique. On the greens, I'm rolling the Blackjack center shaft incredibly well. It's a shame because I love looking down on my SeeMore deep flange much better, but I can't argue with the numbers and the Blackjack simply gets more putts in the hole. Feel free to ask any more follow-ups, but short answer is that all of these clubs have kept their spot in my bag and I'm not looking elsewhere (or at least not looking hard).
  11. With all the PXG fitters I've met/dealt with, to a person they seem to be there to find the best set for you/your budget. I find it kind of crazy that PXG doesn't have a dedicated store in LA, but maybe next time I'll have to take a trip to Scottsdale. And yeah, I could go back to the 0211's and probably not miss too much performance wise (as long as I get to keep my SteelFiber shafts in them).
