    No issues with the 2 Prolaunch Blue 45 A Flex that I purchased.  The shaft must have been cracked under the grip.

    I will check the swingweight to see if the paint added any weight to the shaft.  After installing a +1/16 grip, I had to add some lead tape to the head to bring the swing weight up to D1.

    Yesterday was a full round of playing the ProLaunch 45 senior flex shaft with my new setup.  I have to say that driving the ball seemed easy.  My drives, if not in the fairway, were just off the edge and did not put myself in trouble.  Length was very good as compared to the positions I normally play from.  The PXG Gen 5 0311XF driver set at 8° seems to be a very good combination with the ProLaunch 45 shaft.  On Saturday, I played my regular gamer of Ping G425 Max at 9° with a Ventus Velocore Blue 5S at 45".  Being 6 months out from shoulder surgery, I am deliberately trying to swing easy and the Otto Phlex driver definitely feels lighter.  The only thing I do not like about the Grafalloy ProLaunch 45 shaft is the graphics, but I am fixing that by spray painting the shaft matte black.  
    So far, the Gen 4 PXG 3 wood with the Prolaunch 45 shaft will not replace my Ping G410 with Ventus Velocore shaft.  The Otto Phlex combination in the 3 wood is too light for my preference.  I added some lead tape to the head of the PXG 3 wood to increase the swing weight, but I still hit the Ping 3 wood better.

    Good mornin west coasters - it's afternoon here in Florida, Just got back from playing 18. Day started out sunny and no wind then clouds, then rain, then the wind picked up. On the last three holes the sun finally reappeared. Had several bad holes - including one water ball but was able to scramble back and card an 88.

    Great to see you're getting the results that the PLB is capable of!
    I know the graphics aren't Picasso but I can visually deal with them far better than the hot pink of the actual Autoflex. I'd venture to say that after adding a few grams of flexible paint, you may have been better off with the GWX black shaft in 50g. The flat black and silver is pretty nice looking. 
    Will be interesting to see if the paint impacts playability at all.

    All the putters look awesome. You would almost have to just assign random numbers to them and roll the dice. Hard to be disappointed.

    Not me.  Between my time in the Air Force (o'dark early pre-flight showtimes) and decades of goofy international travel while working for Boeing, my days of alarm clock setting are over.  In fact, when I retired, my alarm clock and I took a short walk out to the woodpile chopping block... and only one of us returned.

    I did three sets split leg this morning. This is about the Good morning exercise right? 😛 . Great morning today. Sun is out, birds are chirping and hopefully everyone is feeling better in the house. Got gassed this weekend full of daddy/daughter time. Was a blast.

    Good Morning all.  I have today and tomorrow to myself. Our pro is taking wife and two other ladies from our club to play in a 2-day Pro-Am at Wildhorse Resort and Casino in Pendleton OR.  Should be interesting.
    After a few household chores I will spend the day at our club working on parts of my game; maybe sneak in 9 holes walking.  Grass and trees are getting a little stressed with lack of water.  Temps are pushing 80º and our irrigation water has not been turned on; apparently line maintenance and pump repair.

    Good morning all! Well not so much for this guy. Tested out the Burner mini driver yesterday and it was a blast. However, was taking the dog out last night and had a slip and slide incident on the wet grass. Heard and felt the pop on the inside of my right knee. Try swing motion once upstairs 🤣and nope. At docs to find out how long I’m on the sideline. Was hoping to convince the wife I need the Burner Mini lol.

    Top O' the Morning! Reflected a bit on my terrible round yesterday (my game is going backwards and I am in my head).
    But most of all, I am thinking back to my amazement yesterday watching a 15 year old high school freshman (he and his dad were paired with a buddy and me for our 11:30 tee time yesterday) blast bombs off the tee and show off very consistent ball striking with his irons the rest of the day. As we walked to the 8th tee (a shorter par 5, 476 yards from the tee), the kid's dad said this is the kid's eagle hole on the course. He proceeded to bomb a drive 300+, then hit his second to 5 feet, before dropping the fairly easy putt for eagle. It was fun to watch.
    After our round, my buddy and I had a beer and chilled on the patio for 45-60 minutes after our round. When I left, the kid was still on the range...inspirational.

    Top of the pot spies ☕.  I'm sitting here having a second cup of joe and we're watching two male quail fighting each other in our front courtyard.  What could they possibly be sparing about?  Suddenly a female emerges from the oleanders... never saw that coming 😆.  Getting to play for the first time in over 10 days of rest and repair. It's been hell not playing but fortunately the practice chipping and putting areas have avoided the use of tranquilizers 😜.  Have a great day everyone!
