  1. It appears to be made for heavy logo-ing.

    The black area needs a little something, maybe some old school diagonal stripes. Who knows

    and please make is 14 dividers.

  2. Blades always reach deep into the golfer psyche and some how place a desire to pure a shot to a target.

    Then I wake up and go back to work :blink:

     

    However, I am not a fan of the high gain look. To me it appears a bit unfinished. I do like the shape and contour just not the final look.

  3. This is the chicken or the egg question. Does it make it better, can you tell the difference etc.

    For every person that says it works there is another that says it doesn't

     

    I can't see anything wrong with finding what can be described as the best part of the shaft for the install. If for nothing else adding a  high level of consistency when putting the club together.

    if it give the golfer another level of confidence then it works. If not then it doesnt

  4. when you go get fit........ :D

    Some of the better shafts are:

    UST Recoil - pick a model. 600 series, ES line, prototype and tourspx all have their merits

    Steelfiber, I personally don't have a lot of experience with them. But I have yet to hear of a bad report on them

    ACCRA - the Iseries although basic has a wide range from 40 g to 110 in 10 gram increments. Now there is a color and engraving for a more personal touch.

    I just tested the 90 gram and my acceleration profile was impressive, for me that is.

  5. We brought them in this year and the feel is far better than previous years. More solid is the best way to describe it.

    I like the color combination along with the sight lines.

    To me, the best thing they did was offer up models that had something other one shaft offset.

     

    I personally liked the tank models. but found the #9 to work best and I am not a fan of the shape. Maybe I will be going forward.

  6. The new design that Barbajo put on is far superior to the original model.

    The initial idea behind the grips was the sized allowed the grip to lower and allow for great hand action/ movement.

    whatever your belief.

     

    The grip is heavier than a regular grip for sure. However the weight of the club moves to the hands and you can track the club that way.

     

    They have a sm grip that Jumbo users will certainly like. The XL hmmmmm I dunno

  7. I received two pieces of feedback from golfers I made the sets.

    most were better golfers, lower 80s to higher 70s scores.

    The lower irons were easier to hit and the higher irons particularly the 5 was hard to get distance.

    In many cases I had to go outside to the range and let them hit the clubs working to the 5 iron

    In most every case the golfer was try harder to get distance because they knew it was a shorter club in length.

    After a little mind bending, the swing returned to normal the shot because better.

    If the swing speed is slower stop at the 6 iron and get into some hybrids.

  8. The matrix was a 65g shaft  where the DG300 is a 125g shaft and the 950 is in between at 95g.

    all three meant for different styles of golfers. If you are fairly aggressive and want to stay in the Srixon line I might suggest (after the fitting of course)

    that you ask about the Nippon 1050. I would guess that to be the better choice.

     

     

  9. Enjoyed the Wilson booth, the Bettinardi booth to the point we did some youtube videos also.

    I want to see the AR golf and confused them with another company that wanted to build putters after I fitted them

     

    Yonex had a big presence, I am trying to figure if that was because Bridgestone  and Mizuno didn't show.

     

    did you get to the golf mechanix booth? tool were very cool,,,,,

  10. 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.

  11. 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

  12. 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 relationship for both.

     

    did you see the sweep beep? and cool practice item.

     

    Fat Matt was a great idea but a bit over the top in cost, the neuroscience items were winners, I just kept thinking of the of copper necklace commercials,,,,,

  13. 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.
