  1. Outstanding review... This is a picture of my Florida bag and I couldn't be happier. The ZX5's are a solid design with amazing feel, workability, and the distance is outstanding (Getting 180+ carry from a 4I). They can get a little dinged up but not bad considering I play and practice 7 days a week now and walk 90% of the time. Definitely a solid investment imo...
  2. Try my hands at some Senior Tour qualifying events by 55 and maybe a couple try's for the US Open.
  3. I say this about anything in golf when it comes to equipment. Do not invest in "X" Club if you aren't going to A: Invest in "X" amount of time or B: "X" amount in lessons learning how to use it properly. Your equipment should inspire and give you confidence to perform your best when using it. If you bought only for the status you think it provides then you're just fool...
  4. With the introduction of the "Distance Iron" I don't see how it's a thing to have to top load your bag any longer. Also with the ability of (+ or - 2*) adjustments on almost every Driver, Fairway, or Hybrid it seems impossible not to be able to lock in your exact gaps when it comes to that area of the bag imo. I have no more than a 4* gap between Driver (Adjustable from 7.5* to 10.5*), 3W (Adjustable from 13* to 16*), and my 5W (Adjustable from 17* to 20*) and with my 4I at 21*, and 5I at 23* it gives me a lot of versatility at the top of my bag to drop my 4I and add additional wedge or just keep it depending on the playing conditions, weather, etc. I think one of the biggest problems with the average golfer was said by another poster "Kansas King"... Shots over 200 yds can be seen as more difficult without consistency.
  5. So here we go for 2022!!! Driver: COBRA Radspeed XB 9* set to awesome!!! - HZRDUS Blue RDX Smoke 6.0 60g Low Spin Stiff Shaft 3 Wood: COBRA Radspeed 14.5* - Fujikura Motore X F3 6-Stiff Irons: COBRA KING Forged TEC 4-PW (4I 21*, 5I 23*, 6I 26*, 7I 29.5*, 8I 34*, 9I 39*, PW 44*) - KBS $ Taper Lite Stiff Shaft (155g) with Cobra Lamkin Crossline Connect. Wedges: Titleist Vokey SM8 48*/10* F Grind (GW) - Tour Chrome, Titleist Vokey SM8 54*/12* D Grind (SW) - Slate Blue, Titleist Vokey SM8 56*/10* S Grind - Jet Black, Titleist Vokey SM8 60*/08* M Grind - Slate Blue Putter: 34" Scotty Cameron Special Select Fastback 1.5 Bag: COBRA Ultralight Stand Bag in Peacoat/High Risk Red/White Ball: Snell MTB Black I pulled these (Three) clubs mostly because I am really confident with my 4 Iron and hitting it upwards of 190+yds with no significant gap improvement or loss using the Hybrid or 3 Iron... and I added a additional Wedge 56* to cover some options at the bottom of the bag... Hybrid: COBRA Radspeed 3H 19* - YST Mamiya Recoil ESX 480/F4 3 Iron: COBRA KING Forged TEC 19* - Project X Catalyst 80 6.0 Stiff Shaft 3 Iron: Ping G410 Crossover 20* - Alta CB 70 Red Stiff Shaft Best Golf to everyone this up coming season...

  8. Honestly I will pass on Taylormade; even if it's the best driver every made. The price is just too ridiculous and I'm very happy with my controllable drives via the Cobra Radspeed. I believe once we start paying $600+ for a Driver all the prices are going to rocket up and just stay there. Just like Vokey and Taylormade Wedges these days.... I mean almost $200 bucks a wedge?? Seriously guys...
  9. I'm Telling!!! Picked this baby up two days early... GW SM9 50*/08* F Grind
  10. Picked up this pretty young lady today!!! Edel EAS 4.0.
  11. Twenty Years of marketing bullshit is more like it.... I've hit thousands and thousands of shots with my 2017 M1 and the face is pristine. Not a scratch on it... Sell a company for 2 Billion and all of a sudden the "Twenty Years in the Making" club comes out??
  12. I picked up it's little brother FS mevo. To be honest after 10 sessions I enjoy the data points it provides but the app is horrible lacking and in need of improvement imo.
  13. This Club!!! The Ping G410 Crossover 3 Iron 20* with an Alta CB 70 Red (Stiff) Shaft. After reading the Most Wanted review, I saw this club sitting by itself with an unbelievable price tag under $190 and just took a chance and picked it up. What a steal and an absolute beast!!! One of the easiest clubs to hit and to hit far and straight. Getting 195+ yds carry with about 105 to 110 club head speed. So needless to say I'm absolutely a MGS Most Wanted believer!!!
  14. Got fitted for a Edel Putter today and it went very well. I went to the GolfTec in Clearwater, Florida and was fitted by Nick Ramsey. The fitting took about one hour and thirty minutes and it really rips your putter to pieces if you're gaming the wrong stick... The fitting starts off with an interview of your putter tendencies. How do you miss? Are you long or short, pushing right or pulling left. (Me: I was long and to the left) Then you're thrown onto an aim board which will show you how you are aiming at address for about a 1 foot putt. (Me: I had my face open to the right). After the aim board they take a laser and lay it down directly at a ball and then place a mirror on your putter and have you come to address for a 5 foot putt and they remove the ball so you can see where you are actually aiming at address. (Me: I was aiming about 6" right with the face open and about 8" up increasing the lie angle). This was eye opening because at address I thought my putter looked perfect and obviously the further out you go the worse it gets... After that, the fun part begins... Building the correct putter. The fitter walked me through a bunch of options including the head styles, alignment plates, grips, different lie angles, and counter weights in both the head and the shaft of the club. Once the club is built they run you through the aim board and laser test again and again until you feel like you have the perfect club in your hand... For Me the perfect club was Edel EAS 4.0 at 33" with the standard round grip, 68* lie angle, and a 25 gram counter weight in the head. The alignment plate was One on top and two on the bottom... Then it's off to the putting green to put it to work and imo it did. It took me a little bit to get used to but, I definitely saw the improvement almost immediately. Solid strikes rolling end over end with livable misses. At 5 feet and in the putter was deadly and sank almost every putt I hit. At 10 feet the putter felt great and the ones that didn't go in, were tap in's. So even if you don't want to go with an Edel Putter, getting fit definitely shows you what you "need" before you actually buy a putter. For me it was a no brainer and the Edel EAS 4.0 will be going in my bag as soon as it arrives.
