  1. I agree with many that there is something here relative to used, old, performance. Old clubs were DCI962's/S300s (still have them). Was fitted about 1.5 yrs ago (after sporadic golf at best over 23 years) into Callaway APEX forged CF19's, Aerotech Steelfiber i80 shafts. Did I see a difference? Sure. But after a year+, on a whim, picked up a used (inexpensive) good condition set of MP-14s, S300, std lie/loft on eBay. Better feel at impact, predictable and consistent dist/launch. Had to adjust to the loft difference (e.g. 50* PW). But no degradation in index over about 15 rounds - more consistent scoring. Don't mind at all being "told" when I'm off center on a strike. And the club (to me) just looks easier to hit at address. Laughed at by some with the latest tech when I pulled them out ... sure .. but thick skin prevailed. Was it a pre-mature fitting after time away from the game? Maybe (likely). Watching for some MP-32's for a possible next test.
  2. I had one of the 2020 versions. Shoulder strap system lasted ~10 rounds of walking/carrying and the strap stitching started to separate. It was sent back through my club, and about 3 weeks later I was told to stop in and pick a new bag (and that my model was being recalled so-to-speak). The only problem I had was with the straps - no early tears or separations with the bag and interior. Too bad - bag was very light, well balanced, sufficient and thoughtful storage, and fit a full set without having to stuff clubs in. I've seen the "new" version and the strap design is definitely different - visually appears more heavy-duty. Looked good. However, I switched to a Titleist Players 4 Carbon ... which will probably be around for a few years.
  3. I'm a walker 90+% of the time, and I've settled on TRUE's, for now. Original 1.2's for full rounds - snug instep and good heel-lock, plenty of toe room. Issue for some people is the "zero-drop", but I like the level feel and stability/balance. No traction problems. Will use the TRUE Knit IIs for a casual 9-holes, or if I need a break on an 18+ day. They do not have as much lateral stability, and a slight transitional drop, but extremely comfortable. I have a few other TRUE models but these are the favorites. Waiting on a pair of the new "Sport" line - somewhat a blend of the two models. I've tried FJ, Nike, ECCO, Athalonz, and the new Paynter. And I wear custom insoles (SOLE) in all/any.
  4. JIm Alamo, CA Walk 100% at home course Currently a mix of Sunday carry, Walker Trolley, and MGI Zip Nav AT FWIW - Home course has a good mix of up/down and off-camber fairway, and dirt/grass/cart path green-to-tee transitions
