  1. I like deals for golfers but the snell things seems like a hard road to hoe. I hope it works out for him. maybe I should look into it. Went to the hole out booth. it was getting some traction but it seemed they were still in the project phase. This would be a retail item. I was trying to wrap my head around making it into a fitting tool.
  2. What was the name of the company doing the crown covers on the drivers. I was looking for them too.,
  3. Took in tour edge on the last day, The folks there are very knowledgeable and approach the game like a business (thats a good thing) I don't understand the snell thing though, If you are going to sell only via the internet why go to a show that all about selling to a rep, shop or store. I here all kind of good things about the ball just cornfused
  4. Was at the show also, I have a box of the P2 grips coming. I was looking for the new products area and only found the pavilion, Only until we were leaving that I found in it in the daily rag in the map Duh!! Hit the burke putters and agree on the assessment. felt good but the graphics on the bottom are terrible. did you hit the V6 from Wilson,,,, very nice. Liked the look of the black steelheads. can you say new gamers., based on the MGS review went to the MLA booth and the evnroll, time well spent. The MLA swings easy and the evnroll variety is very high. working on a relationshi
  5. 1) Wishon lengths are very conservative but he drives home the point of a shorter club. The data I have from my fittings show the 44.5" driver length is the most popular. 2) correct, see RB7s previous post. 3) You can expect the club to feel very light in comparison to the original length. There are discussions about the effects on cutting down the cut flex, spine, etc personally I don't much of that but 1.75" is significant. cosmetically you will most likely be putting on a grip over the logo of the grip.
  6. If you have the time Jac at Greenich golf or Frank viola at ace of the clubs is a trip you will not regret.
  7. That's the way we have been building them for years and for the reason you posted. Enjoy
  8. I tell folks that grip size is a catalyst to the push or hook concepts not a cause. Grips should be fit to the proper size of both hands. However, physical and mental comfort override proper fit. Meaning if I say I think midsize grips are the best fit for you and while going through the mid grips for selection the golfers final thought is,,,,, yea but I am comfortable with standard and like that feel instead, then the decision has already been made. The change of grip size will be in that golfers mind the ENTIRE time instead of concentrating on the swing.
  9. a dot of superglue will do the trick nicely.
  10. I am in agreement with jaskanski. It would greatly depend on velocity of the club head mashing against the ball and then where the impact occurs. If you are hitting say near the crown with a higher than average club head speed then failure is bound to happen. however if you are hitting in the middle fairly consistently then it should be a very long time before anything noticeable happens to the club head. and yes I would expect the shaft to fail first.
  11. I have folks coming back for fittings for the following reasons 1) major surgery (rotator cuff, knee replacement etc) to get confirmation on specs needed for new gear again if needed. 2) recovered from major sickness stuff such as cancer, long term infections, that cause large changes in strength and weight 3) got bit by the golf bug (BAD) and has been through a serious change in the swing 4) has had equipment long enough (in the their mind) and want to make sure specs are still good. 5) on the average 5yr if nothings has changed. 6) or got a great deal on a set of clubs and wants to mak
  12. Lets face it, ladies don't the attention the guys get when it comes to the equipment. The women golfers we are talking about here are taller, stronger and smarter about the game. I rarely put on Ladies grips on ladies clubs. Men's standard or even midsize are more the norm. same goes with shafts and the shaft lengths. typical shaft flexes range in the A to R and mostly a 1/2 shorter than men's standard lengths. Fit them like anyone else and watch them play better
  13. Instead of concentrating on the ball you might want to consider the shaft in play assuming ( yes I know what can happen when that happens) the head is in good shape. The shaft can prevent the need 16 Mph ball lost, additionally if you are spppiiiinnninngg the ball as added loft will take away from the ball speed ever so slightly. Just something else to consider
  14. Awesome Jim McCleery, Ohio Tour series miss to the left (left handed) I play the Piretti Teramo center shaft
  15. you fit the ladies just the like the guys. Make sure to have some good A and R type shaft available.
  16. UST Chrome + 8F5 Xflex is 88 grams or the 9F5X comes in at 100 grams. If you are looking to EBAy something then try the older ADAMs tour models they were very good. newer OEM stuff try the Wilson F5 13.5 that can be adjusted to 12.5 up to 15.5
  17. Cut down the club to your desired length, take it out for a test drive and see if you even miss the swing weight. If you do, may be able to make it up with removing the 1 gram disc and putting in the heavier one. or adding lead tape or finding the way into the head and adding the tungsten and rat glue. the counter balance in the shaft is not that dramatic. I carry the ACCRA tourZ CB and love it. I cut it to 44.5 and there was no difference in feel to me.
  18. Rookie, looks like a great start to the shop. The bending machine looks a like close to the window. Put a sand wedge in and see before it mounted. I lived that issue,,,,,
  19. We offer the service at $20 for testing of each club and $5 for loft and lie adjustment for each club. south of Columbus
  20. you are paying for the fitting process (experience), Regardless of the equipment brought in they get them spec'd. As far as doing repairs or tweaks, that why we have a repair shop.,,, We get plenty of folks that buy new equipment and then ask to get them fit. no problem. just be prepared to be told that the equipment purchase may not be the best fit for you, if that is the way it turns out.
  21. Well Done Bill. And you indoubtedly hit the ball better
  22. I would have to say that If you are hitting the clubs with a length that is 1" over well then it is probably the proper length for you. You are correct the fitting is the thing to do, it may find that the one inch over is just right. Adding length to the club can add to the swing weight, as previously posted, add weight to the total weight which is as important, take a bit extra time to deliver the club to square. Although not as a apparent as in a iron as a driver. Again, if YOU are hitting better then by all means use it. Using the wrong length can cause you to lose distance via off
