  1. or spend the $4 for 5 shims and save some time
  2. a negative AOA is in itself a hard thing to compensate against. A shaft might help but only very slightly. The swing speed you are generating is pretty good. Try this first. Crank down the loft say 2 deg and tee the ball down then give is a real try for about 20 balls to see if that helps before hunting down a shaft that isn't tested for your swing
  3. I wanna be the diver that goes in and get the 50 plus tour golf balls that hit the drink on 17
  4. try single length instead if you are good with the seven
  5. try champion golf, they should have access to the stuff you need and are in the Chicago area
  6. If memory serves, the shaft in the 70"s models is a smaller diameter than is available currently. You will have to ream the hosels to "upgrade" the clubs. Sounds like a great project
  7. Golfworks makes two portable gripping stations. You might be able to just set it in a corner and pull it out when needed
  8. 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.
  9. Nice to know what is being used. I've only used hot water and a club glove microfiber towel.
  10. 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 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.
  11. You might want to try the next size up in the same model grip then stretch it onto the shaft.
  12. 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
  13. Yes it is repairable. Heat the hosel, drill out of the remaining shaft. clean out the hosel area of any remaining debris install a new shaft and grip and ferrulle not in that order good as new
  14. I bought a box of the grips too and have one on my putter. First trial was at Del Mar country club. Accuracy was awesome outside 10ft. I could say inside 3ft because I was just so excited to be that closed I pooched each time on the next occasion I got over the school girl anxiety and made some real nice 3 -6 footers. The new lighter models are now available.
  15. when you go get fit........ 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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
  18. The CP2 grip has been the most popular grip in our shop the last two years running. The grips appear to last a well and clean up good
  19. The golfer was visually swing harder because they had a shorter club in their hands. Making poor contact Yes that is what I meant. The minute the golfer got back into the regular rhythm the ball went better
  20. 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.
  21. you are only an hour from two listed in the golf digest and one is in the top 100.
  22. 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.
  23. MAN!!! I live and hour and 45 minute away and still don't have it
  24. 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,,,,,
