  1. I haven't hit a 5 wood in 20 years, long ago added a hybrid to replace the wood. Has anyone spent any time evaluating a 5 wood versus a strong (17 degree) hybrid with what results? This all comes up after I hit a buddies 5 wood and was smoking it. What would be the advantage of a 5 wood? a hybrid? Thoughts?
  2. I've done ball testing for years for a major manufacturer. My biggest fear was putting all 3 balls into a water hazard before I was able to assess them... In one test I had pumped one OB on the second hole, then on the 3rd hole drilled a 3 wood into the lip of a bunker where, despite digging with a sand wedge, we never found it... down to the last tester, I only played it on holes where It would be impossible to lose. Advice for the testers to keep in mind.
  3. I see a lot of Honma gear at my club... very popular.
  4. Looks great! Very utile. I love indoor simulators, Top Golf, etc. Nice to go out in the garage and hit a few balls. I am lucky living in So. Cal. with a 360 day golf climate, never need to go inside, just hit balls out of my yard into the canyon behind my house using a cheap launch monitor or go to the nearby driving range. My pro has a place in Northern Cal where they get more rain, he put another garage door on the back of his garage which abuts a large field, has heaters and fans to moderate the temperature, with a Trackman it's a great place to work on your swing, able to see ball flight. He and his dog go out and pick up balls every few days when he runs out, the dog picks them up and drops them in the trailer on his little tractor while he drinks beer. It would be cool to have one of these where you can play different courses and have your buddies over. I was in Chicago in winter my Chicago buddies took me to a bar that had these set up inside, leather chairs, bar, etc. Reminded me of bowling... It was funny walking down the sidewalk with golf bags in a blizzard going from the car to the bar... Good luck with your setup as you add improvements!
  5. I have a spare iPhone that would be perfect for this one. Been wanting a new launch monitor since mine was stolen from the range while I went to the can...
  6. I just wore one out... been contemplating the replacement.
  7. Need a new one, my Bushnell is beat up... My GPS watch is on the fritz... always 10-15 yds off... Send it to me, it will get used a lot...
  8. I am going to buy one. I just haven't seen any model from any manufacturer that has is perfected at any price. I've tried a couple of the high end "follow me" units, they are close but still have bugs that eliminate them at that cost. I can rent a living, breathing bag carrier for $50 without having to carry him from the parking lot and most of the time they follow verbal directions.. THAT is what these electric cart guys need to get to. "bring me my putter"... or at least "bring me my bag", "follow me"... "don't drop my new staff bag in the mud" "what are you smoking?" "no I don't want you to read my putts"...

  15. 1. 8.6 Palos Verdes California 2. Callaway Epic Pro with SteelFiber i110 cw Aerotech (S) shafts. I can hit an 8 iron 175 yards but play it as a 150 club. These are very forgiving irons with a great sound. Very happy with them, not looking for a replacement. I carry a 3, 5,6,7,8,9,P. all are +1" except the 3 which is +2... and goes a mile. 3. I don't know much about Sub 70, so haven't formed any opinions on them. From what I see, they are following a similar model to what the current Hogan team is doing.
