  1. Timothy Eakin La Habra, CA Evnroll ER8 No 3 is the putter I would like to test
  2. Looks like tour edge is making up to 11 wood and ping is making up to a 9 wood I found both on globalgolf.com
  3. I am struggling with a similar fit vs ball flight problem. My wrist to floor is much higher than what standard loft/lie clubs "fit" but I have been able to adjust my swing with most standard clubs or 2° upright. Flat lie angles, no matter how I adjust, come into the turf toe down. This can cause the toe to dig first and open during the swing. Then to make ball first contact I would purposely hit thinner which developed a flinch. All this to say that fitted to my specs of 2° upright allowed the sole of the club to enter the turf squarely. This allowed me to swing more freely and more
  4. See my answers above inline with the questions
  5. I saw online the "putterlounge" website has a refinish service but the cost seems like you could buy a mint used putter for about the same money. My TM putter is white and had some bag chatter like yours. I found some fingernail polish at the 99¢ store hid the bare metal from a distance at a glance. Close inspection reveals the chips are filled but it isn't a pricey putter or collectible. Yours is red so finding a closer color match might look to car touchup paint, mixing fingernail polish colors if you are only looking to cover up the bare metal as an easy fix. The right way
  6. My personal experience with more and less offset is that I got used to whatever I game consistently with practice. My Ping G2 irons have lots of offset and it didn't make me hit super left. My Titleist 735.CM irons have way less offset and they didn't go right. Hitting my friends Callaway Apex Forged had little offset and no issues. I would assume people who actively rotate the face would be more susceptible to offset. If the club is neutral and not being manipulated then it would seem offset would have less impact on face angle because of less face closure rate in a passive
  7. Thank you. Received it and delivered to my veteran and golf buddy - he is ecstatic! Ok to close.
  8. First, same loft with different head weights and shaft lengths and shaft material will produce different results = they are not the same because of the same loft. Generally, 4h loft replaces a 3i, but in your case the 4i loft is a 3i loft. My 4i is 24° and 3i is 21° but the point isn't the number on the bottom of the club for me. The graphite shaft that is longer than the equivalent lofted iron with a shorter steel shaft produces a faster clubhead speed for me with the hybrid. The COG of the hybrid also produces a much different flight. I guess the bigger question for you is if you
  9. Yes, I can think of two reasons of using an iron instead of a wedge for a lob style swing: Very fluffy lies where the ball is sitting up and a wedge played open would go right under the ball. A less lofted club played open may actually have more effective bounce to prevent going completely under the ball. Longer bunker shots around 30-70 yards made easy by using an iron and similar swing to sand wedge with an open face. Opening the face adds loft and bounce, and with less loft to begin with the ball will launch lower and farther without having to swing harder. As with any
  10. Some training Aids are cheaper than others: Arm sleeve trainer $12 Arm wrist angle $10 Reflector Stick from Home Depot is a perfect alignment stick for $2 Also, Smash Bag $25 Orange Whip Clone $37 (yellow version) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08NVQFG1T/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glc_fabc_EcM7FbCWTJZX0?tag=mochaglobal-20&ascsubtag=srctok-aba1768b9dd1aa2a&btn_ref=srctok-aba1768b9dd1aa2a https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B08FH5M9N4/ref=sspa_mw_detail_0?ie=UTF8&psc=1&th=1 https://www.homedepot.com/p/Everbilt-48-in-Reflective-Rod-in-O
  11. Updates: I had a chance to hit the Cleveland CG Gold - wow! The difference is substantial without being in another world. The Cleveland offset is less, the bounce is less, and the shaft seems heavier than my Ping G2 irons. I was surprised how it seems more effortless to swing faster and make better contact with the Cleveland clubs. I can't read the label on the shaft for flex which makes me wonder if it is S300 or X100 or DG SL... Time will tell.
  12. My buddy bought the ER7 and we have tried them side by side - very similar. I second the ER7 or even the ER5 if you don't need the longer sight line of the 7/8. Used is also a good shout! I bought my ER8 used for $200 around 2 years ago - glad I did.
  13. I would recommend the milled face Mizuno if you want the feedback from the putter head. If you prefer the soft insert feel then it is a personal preference. The soft insert masks mishits more than a solid face. I would not say distance control is better with the softer face because it is hard to feel the impact as much. Swing consistency is more important than face material for distance control. I would ask what about the Cleveland makes it easier for you to control the distance like weight, shaft, or loft?
  14. I'm curious why you aren't looking at Mizuno clubs if you have been playing them for 20+ years? I'm all for buying used clubs to save money. However, it is good to get fit for flex, lie, length, and etc to make sure the used set is in the right ballpark.
  15. I have been gaming Ping G2 irons with the Ping steel stiff shafts. I have also happened to come upon a set of Cleveland CG Gold MCT irons with DG shafts. Does anyone have any insight on what is different, better, or worse between them? From what I gather they are both game improvement, over sized, cavity back with wide soles. So, is there a significant difference in bounce, offset, or COG? I enjoy the forgiveness of the G2 with my only complaint being launching a bit too high, and less feedback on mishits. I haven't had a chance to hit the Cleveland clubs yet. Just
