  1. I'm a 16, finding a shoe for any occasion sucks, but luckily there are a few out there that cater to us gun boats - Nike, Callaway, FJ (very limited has to be custom built). Been wearing the Nike's lately.. if you're 16 W good luck, probably FJ only.

  3. Irons are +3/4" length and +1 lie
  4. Was a PXG fitting/order. Alright let me see if what I gather from these replies is correct: Since my irons ended up at +1, the “small +” represents that, if it were a regular + or a large + that would be 2 and 3+ respectively (this may not line up with the manufacturers actual numbers, but the general idea)? And the ‘small’ doesn’t have anything to do with the actual size of the hosel?
  5. I’ll second this, the T200s I mentioned are about to be for sale on B/S/T, went with PXG Gen3 0311Ps, got them in two weeks from order, got fitted for full bag by PXG because why not, and to make sure my irons were the right choice, figured I could keep them if so, if not return, return it was, ended up in the Ts.. anyway, fitting was last Wednesday, the order was in assembly by Friday, shipped by Sunday. A couple of items here: 1. I think when your order goes in through a PXG rep as vs online/on phone they get fast tracked 2. The order process at PXG is awesome, you get a link to track your order from order>picked in assembly>inspected>shipped, it’s so nice to watch the progress.
  6. T200s ordered via retailer took 6 weeks, ordered in March.
  7. I just got fitted for a new bag, I noticed that the order was put in with “small+“ hosels on all my graphite shafted clubs - D, 3w, 19, 22 looking for info, like why would someone be put into a small hosel, and what does the + denote? Thanks all.
  8. Just got done my PXG fitting, some numbers while they’re fresh: Driver Swing Speed: 112-114 7i Swing Speed: 90-92 The fitter said whoever fitted me into a 95G shaft should be fired, and that I need a heavier shaft to control that speed. We worked around the s400, the x100 and finally dialed in on the KBS c-taper S 120. Also fitted into the 0311 Gen3 T’s The T200s ballooned and were definitely giving me some slicing action, as expected by a not so stiff light shaft, guess I won’t be going back to that shop for fititngs anymore.
  9. This was my understanding as well. I have been hemming and hawing over the Edison Wedges, Edel, and now the Hogans (admittedly because they're so pretty). I was surprised to see Hogan basically going opposite of what others are doing/saying gives more spin. Now if they're just trying to get the ball in the air because AMs have a hard time doing that so it lands with a steeper angle of attack, I get it, but that's what I'm trying to cut through here and figure out. Ultimately I want a wedge with more spin, I play the SM8s (54/58) and I'm pretty alright with them, I have always been a pretty strong wedge player, but consistent spin is a problem for me, I have no problem getting the ball up in the air, if anything it's too high, even with the high CoG on the SM8s. Also looking for a wedge with that forged feel, I'm a 'feel' player.
  10. They’re taking opposite approaches to the ‘Progressive CoG’ theory, it’s intersting to me to see a company taking an opposite stance than the industry like Hogan is, curious to hear thoughts. TLDR: Vokey higher lofted has CoG higher up the face, lower lofted, CoG lower on the face (and most other brands), Hogan is the complete opposite. Vokey CoG description: PROGRESSIVE CENTER OF GRAVITY SM8 features a reimagined progressive center of gravity, which produces the most accurate and forgiving Vokey wedge yet. Using tungsten weights and varied hosel lengths, the Vokey R&D team has moved the CG outside of the wedge head and placed it in front of the face, resulting in increased MOI and exceptional feel. For the golfer, this means optimized ball flight and a club face that simply wants to square up at impact. SM8 accomplishes all of this while preserving the classic Vokey head shape players demand. Hogan CoG description: PROGRESSIVE CENTER OF MASS Shot trajectories to help you score better The larger face size on Equalizer II wedges maximize and perfect the Progressive Center of Mass system from wedge to wedge. Higher lofted wedges have more weight low to create high trajectories that stop on the green quickly, while lower lofted wedges have more weight positioned higher on the face to eliminate ballooning and increase accuracy. Overall, the Equalizer II wedge club heads have been lengthened and discretionary weight has been removed from the perimeters. As a result, the thickness of the face area was thinned strategically behind the impact area depending upon loft and desired performance.
  11. It was a joke because of the appearance of the club on the post, apparently a bad joke...
  12. I found that thread nice and quick after your post and looking at the Hogan site, thank you.
  13. These two balls seem to be the best fit for my game, want to give them both a good go, curious where you're finding the Snell with the AlignXL, that's a golfballs.com product, correct? I'm only seeing the Snell Sum for sale on there.
  14. Man that is a gorgeous set, seems like it may fit me well too, I tend to stripe my 8-P
  15. I have 3 sets of irons and a fitting coming up.. I can safely say I will most likely keep 2
  16. I do plan on going in with an open mind, however, I hope that my Gen3 PXG 0311P or my T200s are what win out (with expected new shaft combos) If not you'll be seeing a couple of sets for sale on BST, as I'm going with what the LM and my feel tells me is best. As @Middler mentioned above, feel is very important to me, you can give me a club I hit straight every time and if I can't feel the ball off the face I don't want it.
  17. 30% discount?! That'd be hard to ignore if all else is fairly equal. I'm a veteran, so PXG, Callaway, and Taylormade (ping to a lesser extent) have nice discounts. That said if I really like the feel of something, I'll pay the extra, as it's a longer term purchase, almost an investment, but the returns will be my paltry scores.. The Mizuno love falls in line with the readers choice article MGS put out recently. I honestly never gave them much of a thought but am very interested as I'm definitely more of a feel player. The Srixon's are interesting for similar reasons, I've never really liked ping clubs but those i210s don't look half bad, but my issue with ping has always been feel. At the end of the day it'll be what the LM says combined with how I like swinging the club/the feel. Good to see all the opinions here though, it helps give ideas of what to look at.
  18. I’m a mid/high handicapper, used to be a low handicapper, but a 18 year hiatus has obviously affected my game. I’m in the midst of trying to find a good iron, my problem is I can’t hit the GI irons as there is no feel, I can’t even tell if I hit the ball plus I expect I’ll play out of them fairly quickly. I love the feel and look of a players iron because that’s what I used to play (Titleist 704CB) I understand I need to be fitted (already have been, and have two more fittings scheduled - PXG and Club Champion) This is a post/thread less about me and more about what irons does the MGS community love for feel and forgiveness and some workability.
  19. Keep meaning to watch the TXG review, but get distracted by squirrels.. going now! Look at you earning your $$ Edit: already watched it, but watching it again, such good stuff.
  20. I’ve decided to purchase a set of these, can’t wait. It just makes too much sense what he’s saying, and with the reviews backing it up here and elsewhere, it seems silly to play something else unless you’re a pure striker.
  21. Just played Blackstone National today! Never played Whitinsville, played North Andover CC another Donald Ross 9-holer two weeks ago.
