  1. Giving the nod to PING for being a pioneer for creating some sort of method to get better gear into the hands of golfers. I prefer the dynamic fit as it take into consideration the very thing you are trying to address. The proper club length among other parameters, This assumes the fitter is looking at your posture and actually testing for length. Staying away from the "this is better or that" conversation. As part of the fitting process tell the fitter your concerns so that they can be addressed and you have confidence in the specs recommendation
  2. It is, a light touch with the jet sander but,,, you will remove some of the finish, and will have to keep an eye on the rust, unless you like that.
  3. There are clubmaking books from golfworks for sale from GW and Golfsmith book for sale on EBAY I believe both can be found on amazon, Dynacraft (now hireko) has a good book also. If you are wanting to learn I second the class at Golfworks in Newark Ohio, Plenty to choose from in the range of topic and experience. I talk to some basic club stuff on youtube if you are interested
  4. Without reading the entire three pages of responses: Tools are only as good as the user. All need some sort of set up, altitude, soil condition, wind direction (if needed) etc. particularly if using indoors. Then placement and or alignment once the settings are input. or indoor or outdoor. After that, I can say that most will give reliable numbers and data. If the unit is set up well then the numbers you saw are probably dead on.
  5. Dukester, I am sure that at 1.5 inches over standard the fitter/ builder was trying to maintain some sort of normal swingweight by using a lighter shaft. However most ultra light shafts are not designed for the better player. It is a pretty good bet the shaft is off, I would suggest trying something in the 105/110 range. A kbs tour 105 or something like it in another brand. when putting on what I assume (yes I know what that does When I do that) is a larger grip (Bigger guy, bigger grip) the Sw is not that bad and may just help. When doing one shaft if it works then viola you are on your way a
  6. Going back to the original post, I believe you are asking two separate questions. 1) Swing weight what is it/ where to add weight and 2) what's with moving weight around on/in the head. Swing weight IMO is a measurement from a scale that can show you the consistency of your build. Most golfers cant feel a 1-3 SW pt change. Although there are some that are sensitive to it they are in the minority. For the OEM it can be used as a marketing tool and a QA tool. Advertising the D-2 or D-4 Sw in the spec and then doing QA checks to make sure they are making a consistent product. now for the
  7. watch out! it all starts with grips then a lie angle adjustment, then a shaft change all of a sudden its late night and you are scouring the net for tools and tutorials. LOL!
  8. I am a fan of the 3/16 stamp. seems to fit the areas on the back of the club and the depth is good enough to hold the paint. Anthony is the best at it, They also use a clamp and stamp guide. That is rig is something else. If you have a large enough vice, the back. flat area is a great and stable place to put the club head. Just put down a piece of double sticky tape to hold it. This is assuming the head only
  9. You can have the adjusted if you don't like the way if they are performing. do a lie test with a fitter if for nothing else peace of mind.

  11. You might try a length of heat shrink tubing for the shaft. The easy route would be to change the grip buuutttt you might be able to tuck it under the grip with the aid of a small screw driver?
  12. Vikings and a cart bag if I am the lucky winner
  13. I work two jobs, I am a senior manager at a now shut down uranium enrichment plant. X health physic manager and x maintenance manager. secondly: Own and operate a Golf custom fitting shop, repair facility and driving range with Mrs McGolf
  14. Staying with the anser styled putters. Each company obviously has its own take on the look, width etc. From a look perspective the Toulon is probably the most toned down with color or graphics, the look is smooth and easy as is the feel. The Pirreti and Bett are super clean millings, the edges are a bit sharper by design. Bettinardi has upped their game in the splash it on column, Where Piretti is finding their way. From a feel perspective I would say the Pirreti is more crisp than the Toulon and softer than the Bett models. All are solid in their own way. Once you have the paramete

    Toulon Putters

    To the cities question: I live near Columbus and actually like the shape of the putter however being a lefty put that option out to pasture however the indy is about 3 hrs away and does come in lefty. It look a bit to the wild side but hay, if it works success breeds acceptance. To meeting Toulon, I met him at the PGA show this year too and you are correct about the "IT". we talk design concepts and what he concentrates on when coming up with the new looks and names. Very cool and cemented my choice about the INDY. I had a Piretti in the bag and it is a very nice putter to be sure howe
  16. I was able to visit the tour van on Wednesday. It was completely crazy, the women don't get a ton of support and this was the last US tourney for the year, so the players were getting regripped and loft lie checked etc prior to finishing in Europe and Asia. Nice folks, the player there, and the Paul on the van earned his pay check that week.
  17. No not really, Like anything else need to get to know the people.
  18. I have been through all the different models of the Club Conex with Eric, Now under new ownership. However, the product is solid.
  19. I have what I believe to be the first set of the Lefty RS-10. I put the Recoil tourspx in them and can say they are one of the best forged lefty irons you will come across. For me anyway. There are no edges on this model. rounded. leading edge, toe ,sole etc. with a slight offset for my mishits. the design is middle of the road to better playerish and when paired with the right shaft, in this case the recoil shaft, watch out. I also liked the clean look of the club.
  20. Optimizing the driver then the 3w are excellent goals. Hitting what you like and hitting what works could certainly be different. use it as a learning exercise and keep the info for future purchases
  21. I does appear the grip provides the counter balancing, You can a replacement PING 15" grip and build up the grip for a larger size. You could also get the counter core SS grip. I would weigh the grip when you take it off to make sure you get the approximate same weighted grip to replace it. You could get a regular larger grip and put in a balance certified weight or tour lock. or you could put on some lead tape along the shaft an d the regular grip
  22. I have P2 grip on my flat stix. Although thinking of the SNSR red next
  23. always a fan of a transitional set. Meaning easier to hit iron in the taller end and a wedge like head at the shorter end of the set. Almost as if each head is made with a purpose. What I found funny is in the corner of the picture MG (which I assume is Miura Golf) by Miura. That is akin to saying MGS presented by golf spy.
  24. You might go back to the place where you tried the M2 and ask to try optional shafts offered to see if there is an improvement
