    LOL I can see it now at your house---- Honey can you please re grip my driver before Saturday????  

    that would probably work except I do the lefty stuff.  A young man newly excepted to a PGM program that we deal with was waiting for me to regrip. She took over and I went into a fitting.

    everybody's happy. lol

  2. My favorite thing at the show was the scotch and beer glasses made by BenShot.

    They are a father and son team that works with Veteran in Wisconsin making well uh glasses with golf balls in the side.

    They work well. I tested one with some Glennfidtch 14 and the golf ball never got in the way. hmmm.

  3. A wedge fitting much like putter fittings are not as main stream as the full swing fitting but are just as important.

    I would think that as many if not more strokes can be found after these fittings.

    Bounce, loft, grind, length, shaft weight, grip all need to be considered.

    tony@CIC don't leave out Wilson to go with your C300s the new forged wedge does come in a 60 and looks pretty nice.

  4. Can you believe I just found this thread!!!!!

    As lefty I make it a requirement for a vendor to have at least one lefty item albeit a head, glove etc. to me it shows a commitment to the long haul in the industry.

    I have a youtube channel that reviews golf gear, talks to fittings and club repairs all from a lefty point of view

    For the latest, I just received a NEW LEVEL lefty iron head and the maverick driver from Callaway, expect to see some good stuff soon. Including PGA show coverage

  5. There is a piece of info missing. Where are they landing?

    The numbers suggest that the contact is good if not great now how about direction.

    Based on the equipment, if you are looking to improve, retooling the iron may be the best bet.

    Based on past experiences the t90 in R flex probably is not R.  get something you can have confidence in and take a rip with or finesse as needed.

  6. There a few considerations when determining length of a golf club for a golfer.

    assuming an 1" over standard, would require a fairly flat swing.

    I am hope you hit that length to have actual experience hitting the club.


  7. The KBS line for irons shaft is about as extensive as any company out there.  

    I have found there is a difference between the .355 and .370 shafts of the same model. Where the taper tips shafts can be a bit more stiff.  It really sounds as if you convinced yourself the clubs were poor before you started or the build was poor to start with.

    Give them another shot

  8. Talk about a hobby gone a stray,,,, I exited the nuclear navy some 20 plus years ago and headed to southern Ohio (just about 20 miles south of the banjo music), And started "the life" coaching baseball , wood working projects, 2 kid and the picket fence (well no real fence).  It was then time old man time slinked into the house and said no more sports for you. I took up golf,,, Ya I know, way to go bonehead, however, the kids notice my enjoyment of the game and asked to join. A proud dad with out knowledge and two boys made it around the course without incident. The only unfortunate part of this is that only a few months later the boys hit a growth spurt and I needed new clubs, FOR THEM?! Another golfer mentioned that I could build these things. No kidding,,, I can turn a wrench, sand a project, how hard can it be to building a club? OH the humanity, after a one day class at the now defunct golfsmith, a one week class at golfworks, the bug not only bit but infected my entire being. I became the educational director of the PCS, the last international club maker of the year with them. Started a business and with my wife of (we will keep that us) years. We have a pretty nice set up that people will drive other 2 hours to come.  Some of that can be attribute to the MGS forum where I try to keep to the equipment stuff. I can appreciate the attitude of the crew to provide the proper information as myth busting is a function of most of us in this category.  Now if this old man can grasp the social media side of the house outside of the YouTube I might just live the dream lol.

  9. there is no problem to modifying the hosel to accept the .370 shaft. However, you must ensure the proper bore. If are going to use a drill bit then don't. A reamer or bottom bore bit in a drill press at low speed is the best cleanest way to perform the job. Weather its .355 or .370 the way it attached to the shaft is the same. Check fit and glue.

  10. was it juiced or not set up properly in the beginning?

    That said, it is completely wrong to do that. I actually tweak mine down so as not to give a false impression of distance.

    When the golfer actually hits a good one then a more positive mental set up occurs.

  11. you need to evaluate your game to determine the proper club for the bag to fit between the 4i and 3w. Meaning a lot of golfers that tend to hit the fairways well struggle with hybrids, at least most of them. where the opposite can also be true. A golfer that stripes a hybrid could most certainly fail with a fairway wood, I am in that category.

    If you a FW golfer then try a 7w if not then give the 3 or 4 hybrid a try. Again in most cases the hybrids with the same number on it as the iron tend to go further than the iron by design.

  12. Im with both. An engineer or team can make the best golf club that checks all the boxes but it it looks like a iron that fell down the stairs into a furnace i.e. the human factor then its not worth its weight in scrap.
