  1. For the manufacturers, it's all about the $$$$$$$$!
  2. I'm at the age(retirement) where we play for a few bucks, pride and a beer. Don't get me wrong...we are competitive as hell, but if my swing hasn't improved over the years and father time has slowed my SS down...there no amount of new clubs with whatever claims that they make will make me any better. Play to a 15...and I'm happy at that. If I do have to make a club purchase...it probably won't be new. If you look at the profit margins of the club companies, they're doing very well...just pushing the envelope to see where the breaking point is.
  3. Like it was said before...I think that the test should include only the second and third tier balls...3 piece, and 2-piece surlyn and urethane balls.
  4. again..late to the topic...but I have experience with all three...not in the same club but the same flex. As mentioned before...I tried steel fiber but they were too stiff in the irons..but played very well in my wedges in "R" flex. Had recoils in my CF16's and they were OK..had a decent flex and did absorb vibrations but I felt like I was not getting everything out of the irons with them Got PXG's with the MMT shaft and really they made the irons feel and perform as well as they did. From what I understand they have a metal mesh tip that gives the club more stability. don't know if it's true, but I really like them in the irons that I have. More on the wedges...I like the feel of graphite over steel for the added touch, but some graphite was too stiff or too flexible. Tried the steel fiber shafts and found the perfect balance between stiffness, flexibility and feel. have them is 3 wedges, 58*, 56*, 54*.
  5. Kind of late to the party on this but one of the main reasons that I don't post that much on topics is the navigation of the site. Seems like there is no direction laid out in the main topics that could filter down into smaller ones. The other is lack of testing. I was fortunate to be a tester once...but there needs to be a system where all get some kind of a shot at testing...even is it's golf balls!
  6. I use Johnson and Johnson Coach Tape. It sticks good even through summer sweat.
  7. I went to CC for a fitting and like many who have mentioned on here it all depends on who the fitter is. Unfortunately my fitter had only one goal in mind, upcharge. I'm a 13 hdcp. (most of the time) and he was putting me into clubs that I know I wouldn't hit consistently (blades). It started off bad when he said that I didn't need any measurements (length, lie, etc.) because he's been doing it so long he could tell what I needed. I really wanted to hit some GI clubs and even try one length, didn't do either one. Bottom line is that I didn't get clubs there, fortunately they had a special on fitting so I didn't loose much.
  8. Appreciate the response!
  9. Does anyone know who the manufacturer is of the RCH shafts? I swung it recently in an "R" flex at a PGATSS and it just felt extremely stable even though I normally swing an "S" flex.
  10. Best ball that I've played that's not to hard or soft with good spin around the green and green grabbing iron hits plus good distance is the Wilson Professional.
  11. I play to a slight fade and even then it's not dependable. Recently purchased a Callaway B21 driver and it has really changed my way of playing. This is supposed to be a draw biased driver, but it plays very neutral to me. Bottom line is that if there is something that helps me without looking like a crutch, I'm all for it. Looking at this driver, you can't tell it's draw biased. My drives now are straight maybe with a very slight draw, which is a new experience for me. When you live in a rural area, your options are very limited.

  13. The current price of a new 0211 driver is $249. With that price comes with a Evelflow Riptide shaft. Never had/tried a PXG driver so I'm jumping in. Read some reviews on youtube...seems to be a sold deal.
