  1. This is the basic layout I'm going for
  2. Will do. Most important part is a dedicated slot for the golf bag to fit in Going for a medium panel van. long wheel base. short roof. In the UK, if there is anywhere worth going there is usually a 2m parking barrier to keep out large vehicles. So ill get a shorter van but put a pop up roof on it so i can still stand once parked.
  3. Now that I am recently single (my choice so not looking for any sympathy), I've decided to do my long time dream of converting a van in to a camper. Once complete I intend on take a month or 2 out each year to travel around and play as many courses as possible! Not got the van yet, I have shortlisted a few, but am waiting for the perfect base vehicle in my budget and it will take me a few months to get kitted out, but once its done I'm hoping to get around as many courses in the UK as possible. My 9 club carry set is all prepared and ready to go... Can't wait! Wish me luck!
  4. only issue with that again will be the import costs. not sure if i can find somewhere similar in the UK. Once the shops are back open in a few weeks I'm going to look to see how upright they (who ever i can find who does putter adjustments) can get my odyssey big 7 armlock before looking at more expensive options. Im hoping i can get it to work for me.
  5. I'm a strong supporter of ascending weight shafts. since I play 90g in my hybrids and 120 in my wedges, and the AMT blacks just work perfectly between them giving me the tempo and control i need in the shorter clubs and the slight added speed and launch in the longer ones. Having only played 3-4 years (with last year being a complete write off) and having almost always used this style of shaft (was using AWT 2.0s previously), I'm used to the more MOI matched feel rather than consistent swing weight through the set. I never had a proper fitting in my first year or so, but through trying a whole bunch of cheap second hand 7 irons (which I then resold) i realized that 105 give or take was the sweet spot for me weight wise and have built around that ever since. I also used the Mizuno DNA analyzer tool about a year later which ended up recommending lighter shafts for me but I think that may have been more because of my slower swing speed as it doesn't take into account ball striking and flight. They do feel faster but i don't feel comfortable.
  6. I've been trying to make my Odyssey Arm Lock Putter work for me, playing the club flat to the ground and adjusting my posture to it and have found it awkward. This week though I decided to ignore the lie angle and have spend an hour everyday trying different postures, hands up and down the grip etc to figure out what feels most comfortable for me and gives me the most consistent swing. The results... I need to be in a much more upright position in order to hold the club comfortably and still have my eyes over the ball. The problem... All the arm lock putters I can find other than SIK are in the 69-75* lie angle range and i think i need about 79* so will now be going the SIK route. I don't think my stroke lab will cope with being bent 7* upright even though I love the shape and the feel (unless someone can tell me otherwise). Questions... Are these flatter lie angles the reason why a lot of people try arm locks and ending up not getting on with it? To me at least, it feels like the forearm anchor promotes a much more upright stance which almost all arm lock putters aren't designed for. It feels like most OEMs add loft to their standard heads to account for the forward lean, but then just stick a longer shaft in and additional weight in the head to compensate. Are there other arm lock makers out there who produce upright options closer to what I am looking for (78-80*)?
  7. Still cant decide on an arm lock putter. Id love a 2 ball ten single line but dont want to faff about getting it reshafted and bent as well as getting new weights for it (if i can get it heavy enough), potentially lead tape as well... I have a 40" double wide stroke lab and have the 7 coming later this week to put up against each other. Also considering either the PXG gen 2 bat attack or operator built to arm lock specs. decisions decisions... Id love to do a fitting, i know what lie angle and length i like, but things like best offset and toe hang id like to get dialed in. most fitters around me dont have arm lock variety to trial though
  8. If by that you mean find my forever putter, then i am all ears. I have moved into arm lock, so options are limited plus im in the uk so which limits my options even further in terms of trying clubs in store and getting fit
  9. [Edit: Whoops i mistook this as a reply to me. haha] To a degree... I always buy used and am pretty good at setting spending limits and setting up searches under those perameters. I then do A vs B testing and then the loser goes back in to the wild. I find I usually end up making a small profit as well using this method and each time dial in my perfect specs closer and closer. Shaft weights, lie angles, sole grinds etc. it all gets locked away in my head as i approach my golfing perfection. As I get closer to what I think works best for me then the performance gains get more about feel and looks than actual gain in numbers. My swing on the other hand, doesnt see much of these benefits at the moment, 2 years ago I was flat out with work and hardly got to play or practice and this last year has been mostly in lock down in the uk. I'm hoping to get out there a lot this summer and put a big dent in my handicap with the practice i have been doing at home.
  10. lack of space means i always have to be pretty ruthless about what i keep and what i move on. I'm hoping to find that one true love putter this year though which is my main focus at the moment. Everything else in my main gamer bag is fair game though. I think the closest thing i have to a forever club is my 26* steel shafted adams a12 pro hybrid. will always be in or around my bag to the point where i have to build the rest of my set around it to ensure i still get the right gapping. Only comes out of the bag in high winds where i put a 6 iron in its place.
  11. I kind of fit myself using the top tracer driving ranges. They have a mode that adjusts the readings to compensate for the fact your using range ball, but its great for tweaking loft and lie settings on a driver and trying different shafts. You dont get super accurate numbers but its good enough for like for like comparisons back at home with all the data once you are done. Can see dispersion. Numbers for each shot. Averages for each set up. I put in the details to the app before i head to the range. Ie. GBB - 9* - EvenFlow. GBB - 10* - Evenflow. GBB - 9* Draw - Evenflow. Then ill go. take the shots and look at differences in carry, dispersion. etc etc. As someone who likes to try different shafts alot. I love to do the A vs B testing with numbers I can look back on.
  12. Is their a way to order the head only? I said in an earlier post that id like to turn the 2 ball ten single line in to an arm lock and if i can save money on not having the shaft then great! I dont think that seems to be an option though...
  13. I had an issue about 2 years ago when really trying to stripe the ball in practice but not had any issues since. With Uk restrictions for about 9 out of the last 12 months I've hardly swung at all, so guessing my golfing muscles have atrophied and need building up a little to with stand the forces of a full swing.
  14. I guess I could re shaft one. Bend it 4 degrees weak, 4 degrees upright and try and find a weight kit so that it plays at a decent weight.
  15. If they make an arm lock version, im in!
