  1. Kiwi is a great guy to deal with. I have bought from him in the past .
  2. I was in the testing of this ball at yhe end of last year. My bad shots weren't from a defective ball. All of the ones I played ( 6 or 7) performed the same. I'm going to update my test, soon. It appears that ( for me) this is a warm weather ball. The feel and sound ( clicky) in cool weather should disappear in warmer temps. I'm not a Pro V1 player either, but I definitely can't play one in cool\ cold weather.
  3. I have always played Cleveland. This Christmas my Son and wife bought me some new Callaway wedges. I had been fitted at a demo day a few months ago ( just testing and messing around). Never would have thought those worked best for me. Tried several brands, but the Mack Daddy Jaws 5 feel like they were made just for me. 50°, 56°, and my lob is an old Cleveland. It will be replaced soon. The best grind for me happened to be the 'S' grind. Go somewhere and try different brands and styles. My wedge game wasn't as bad as I thought. Now, it's more confidence around the greens.
  4. I also like the Callaway balls. In real cold weather, the Supersoft is great. Something you might check is the Superhot. That Superhot is great for me. They used to have a 55 and a 70 compression. Not sure what the new ones are. The matte-finish ones seem to feel better, and neon orange, green, and red are easier to see. New price is $28??? but you get 15 in a box. They are on all of the sites that sell used balls. You might try a dozen or 2.
  5. This afternoon, I played quick nine. 58°-63° . Playing the Gamer on the last few holes, still couldn't get it to work with my driver, but the long irons came alive. There is a par 3 over a ravine that is always a problem to hit. My 5 iron went straight ( still couldn't get a high trajectory), and landed with one heck of a ball mark on the green. It really jumped off the wedges from 40-70 yards. It didn't feel as 'clicky' today except with driver and putter. I'm sure this is a great warm weather ball for me. My opinion on the performance is: In the price range : 1st) Cally Supersoft 2) Titleist Superfeel 3) Gamer The gamer seems like a higher grade\ better Noodle ball.
  6. Thanks, it really gave me more confidence. This was an accident. My Son said hit it a couple of times. The shaft was a Hzrdus Black 6.5 shaft. We had the Tensei already here, so it was put in and ( magic))!!!!
  7. I bought a pair of Callaway La Grange shoes. They show to be around $250 regular price. Rock Bottom golf had them on sale for $69. They are a size 14 M. The only pair left. My feet were getting wet in my Adidas mesh golf shoes. These shoes are SO comfortable. They feel as nice as my everyday Skechers shoes. They are really comfortable. Just check some of the outlets and places. You might luck into a brand that is marked down, or close out.
  8. I have jumped around with drivers over the last 10 years. Never buying the latest, maybe last years model. My distance had dropped from 265-270 to around 235-240. It didn't matter what. I bought a used ( like new). Epic Flash SZ driver. My plans were to re-sell it. I put a non-pro Tensei white shaft in it, and I'm back at 250?? again. When it gets warmer & drys up, it should be a little longer. It seemed my distance was gone for good.
  9. I have been using a Callaway Superhot all last year. Since November ( cold) the Supersoft has been doing pretty well. It may be the temps° but I'm getting a lower flight with these. Also, wearing a jacket over long sleeve shirt hampers my swing. The putting rollout of these are fabulous. Short or long. If I played it for a while and got used to it, the medium putts would be easier. This ball 'jumps' off the putter face.
  10. picture are showing up in reverse order. 1st is putting 2nd is chips 12-14 yards 3rd is pitches from 70?? yards as I walk up to the green. Closer shot of 70? yard pitches.
  11. Today was about 63°. The ball performed somewhat better than previously. 1st pic is pitches from 70?? yards. 2nd is close up of 70 yd pitches. 3rd pic is chips from 12-14 yards. Last pic is putting from 20 feet away. I think this ball is durable, putts really well ( once you get used to it), and has decent distance. Off the driver face is feels rock hard to me. Fwy woods are ok, and so are mid-short irons. Long irons, don't ever give a solid feel. My wedges are NEW, so they seem to spin pretty well. All wedge shots run out pretty far. The best aspect is the putting. Once you get used to the ball ' jumping' off of the face, the distsnce control of the putts are fantastic. It does super on roll, and following the break. More to come later......
  12. Any offers? Might split head or shaft.
  13. Academy Sports, Dicks, and some small privately owned golf shops. They may have launch monitors, all the different club specs, etc. but they just fit to what looks best. We to a Golf USA that does an ultimate fitting. He looks to see if you are compensating, or changing your swing to make something work. He also compares the club you are wanting to replace. If he can't find something better, or that will do what you want, he won't sell you a club. Sometimes he will make an adjustment to your swing, and have you come back in 2 weeks for a fitting.
  14. I play a Callaway Super Hot ball usually. The driver is a 9.5° Callaway Epic Flash SZ. Shaft is a Tensei White x flex ( made for???) stock shaft. My swing speed is only 106, but this combo works great for me.
