  13. The Hogan FIt for me was very simple. As far as online tools go, this is one of the easiest I have seen. Few questions, but the key, I think was the right questions. How often do you hit approach shots with your (for me) 8 iron, inside 160. For me, that is a lot. The fitting diagnosed that my current gaps on the scoring clubs weren't spaced correctly. That was the big take away, ensuring I get accurate yardages from the short irons. As far as the Hogan name, I can only speak of its reputation. And it is highly regarded. Both the man and the brand. Trusted is one word that comes to mind, because I think the esteem that golfers hold for Mr. Hogan, has some carry over in the products, even if someone hasn't actually used them before.
  14. Thanks for the info. I actullay haven't done anything to it yet. I have been hitting it OK, just tweaking some of the settings to get the ball flight I want. Still think I could be a little more consistent in striking with a shorter shaft. Just don't like standing up to the ball with a 46" driver. Might look for a heavier shaft.
  15. Thanks for that advice. I sent one tweet and 5 minutes later got a reply from Chad Coleman (@hastagchad) who said he would just send me some. Classy.
  16. Thanks. I made sure to order one that wasn't from China, but not guaranteed that it isn't a knock off. Found one from a seller in OH. Is there any way to order a real one from Callaway? I sent them an email but haven't heard back. Golf Works or Golfsmith doesn't carry them online either.
  17. That's what I figure too. Just found a 15g weight on eBay and ordered it. Will tinker this weekend. Thanks.
  18. Thanks. During the fitting he never mentioned swing weight and I failed to ask. I did cut down my old driver, Callaway Razr Hawk, without adding any weight to it and honestly never noticed a difference. I haven't hit the new BB a lot, but seemed to catch it off the heel more often than I would like. I like the stock shaft in it just fine, no complaints with distance or ball flight. I may just try to find a 15g weight, cut it, and see how it is. Worse case, I will have to buy a new shaft.
  19. OK, I just bought a new 2014 Big Bertha Driver. Great club, hit it well and get great numbers with it, however it is too long for me at 45.5". I was fit by Callaway rep 2 weeks ago using a Trackman and a new XR Driver and he also suggested I should be at a 44.5" length. He actually said he recommends almost everyone playing a shorter driver. Anyway, I want to cut an inch off the butt end of the shaft. I understand the basics of possibly (though not likeley) making the shaft a bit stiffer, but shortening will definitely affect the swing weight. If I replace the 5g factory installed weight with a 15g weight, will that make up the difference? Is it possible to use a tungsten plug or brass tip weights with an Opti-Fit hosel? What if I just purchased a heavier shaft? What change would that make on the swing weight? Also, anyone know where I can purchase replacement weights? I've seen a few on eBay, but all of the 15g I've seen ship from China. Thanks, and apologies if any of this is covered elsewhere. I searched and didn't find the specific answer I was looking for.
  20. Really like the idea of the sizes, patterns, and textures, but not a fan of the color pattern either. And yes, I owe you an i-Line review. Just as soon as I get a free, warm (er) day to get out to the range. Thanks for the subtle shaming. It worked, I feel guilty!
