    That’s insane. I couldn’t imagine waiting that long. At least they told you up front... 

    If a large portion of the work force has returned, what is taking so long? Or is the demand that much higher for new clubs that they can’t catch up

    I think it is a matter of components not getting stocked quick enough. For instance my tsi3 is delayed because I wanted a z grip. If I had known I would have just gone stock. My t100s were delayed for my PW requesting project x 6.5 which was not in stock so I requested it match my irons with project x 7.0. 
     

    My dad ordered g710 irons and it took two and a half months because they didn’t have all the heads in stock. I think overall there have been delays for getting new stock in.

  2. I’ve tried the CLK and G410. I like the leading edge of the g410 and have a lot of confidence with it from bad lies. Overall, if properly fit most hybrids should perform very similarly. That being said I’ve found shaft matters a lot in hybrid, I didn’t like the g410 with an atmos 9TX but love it with a 9x Ventus blue.

    They're good putters but jesus their prices took off quick.

    They typically have 15% off if you join email list. No tax either. 

  4. I went .75 short from titleist standard and have found more consistency in Striking center. I tried 44 inches and 44.5 before settling on 44.75. For my swing it balances control and speed.

    Saw too many posts on Ventus shafts today. Does any one play it in a DI?

    It’s a beast in my 2 hybrid. Velocore works in my mind. 
     

    ive been contemplating a range finder. I have a Garmin watch for green distances but occasionally it would be good to know distance exactly to doglegs ect. Also wouldn’t mind it for the range to laser different targets. 

  6. On the 17th hole today I hit a 317 yard drive that cut the corner on a dogleg and left me 145 in for a par 5. Hit the green but two putted for birdie. Reason it was a highlight is it was my first 300+ drive in a few months. Been working on my swing to hit a controlled fade and it’s awesome to finally see the fruits of my work.

  7. This year I’ve practiced my short game a lot more and at my home course short is the best miss because most greens have sever drop offs in the back or OB. My go to is a bump and run with a PW but will take a 7,8,9 depending on distance to hole. Anytime I am short sided I will pull out my 60 but most short game shots have been with my PW this year. For me I have a much more repeatable motion and know I will have a putt for par.

  8. My preferred is D4 but my current set is at D2. I did have a ton of lead tape on my irons to get to D4 but have been experimenting with them at D2 to see how they perform. My T100s are so pretty I didn’t want lead tape all over them haha but if I feel like I’m inconsistent I will put it right back on. Part of the fun for me is taking precut lead tale strips with me to the range and dialing in what feels best for each club.

    Currently waiting on my new TSi3 before I do a final show down on what shaft to put in the bag for next season. I am getting the TSi3 with a Tensei Raw White 75x tipped an inch as a potential contender. Ventus Blue 7x tipped an inch has been a fairway finder thus far in my TS3 and is the front runner for staying in the bag when I get the new driver. Biggest surprise this year was replacing my TS2 15 for the G410 hybrid, the combo with the Ventus Blue 9x is a game changer. The hybrid is much easier to flight and gets through the rough more reliably. I put the T100s in the bag after playing 714 and 716 AP2 for the majority of the past few seasons. I have also tried Srixon z765 and Mizuno JPX 919 forged. T100s gives me the exact flight I am looking for and with the Project X 7.0, they have been the best set of irons I have ever owned. I have set distances and I know the ball will be the distance I want when a good swing is put on. My wife made me the SM8 custom with all our family names. This is my first custom club with stamping. The putter section has been a love hate relationship for me, I am currently deciding between a 2018 Newport 2 with a stability shaft and a Piretti Cottonwood II. The greens are slow right now, so the Piretti has been more consistent as the putter is heavier and for me easier to control. I’ve read a ton of articles on MGS just have never participated in the forum until now. I am excited to hop in and love learning about new tech and trying new golf equipment. Tinkering and buying new clubs/shafts are part of the fun for me and I look forward to learning more from MGS.
