  1. Beau Bedell, Scottsdale, AZ Handicap 10 Currently playing Cleveland RTX4 raw finish wedges (50, 56, 60) The lack of glare and the ability to have them slowly rust over time is amazing. The extra spin factor is still TBD.

  3. I'm looking to purchase a used/well taken care of set of Mizuno JPX 900 tour irons, 4-PW/5-PW Havent found anything promising on ebay yet so figured I'd put out some feelers in the forum in case anyone has a set they're looking to sell. Looking for stiff shaft, preferably Project X LZ 6.0 but will consider any shafts and install my own if needed. Message me if interested. Thanks Beau

  5. Hey thanks for the offer. I actually just picked one up from another member on this site. Should arrive next week so if anything goes wrong I may take you up on that offer. Thanks again Beau
  6. I'm looking to pick up a lightly used 2017 M2 driver head. Would prefer 9.5 degree, but would consider 10.5 degree as well. Feel free to PM me if you have one you're looking to get rid of. Beau

  9. For sale I have my full set of Ping Glide wedges. These are Ping's latest wedge release, fantastic clubs. They are SS (standard sole) with CFS wedge flex shafts. I am selling a 50 (gap), 54 (sand), and 58 (lob) degree wedge as part of the set. These wedges are in very good shape with near perfect grooves, I have only owned them for about 3 months. I enjoyed every moment playing with them, but have to sell them as I am getting a new iron set and the wedge lofts do not fit with the new clubs. These wedges retailed for $130 each. I am selling the set for $300. Please feel free to email me with any questions. Beau
  10. Thanks again for all the feed back. My decision to switch to new wedges was made for a reason. As stated, my old wedges performed well on full swings from the fairway, but were very subpar on pitches and chips around the green. I'm happy to report that the Ping wedges are a huge step up for my short game. I shot my best round in 6 months last week, and it was highlighted by a stellar short game on a day when I had no idea where the ball was going off the tee. Thankfully, the more I practice with the new wedges, it seems that my distance is improving. During my range session yesterday I was only about 5 yards short of my previous distances. Even if I don't ever get the full distances back with these new wedges, I'll gladly trade 5 yards on full swings for multiple saved strokes around the green. Very happy I made the switch at this point! Beau
  11. I thought about the stamping being inaccurate too, esp with them being TM clubs, but I figured moving down in lofts in my new wedges should compensate for that. I decided to switch bc the TMs were great on approach shots, but not great around the greens...not great spin on the short shots, and too many shots hit fat and thin...they have a very weird bounce system in place where none of them have an actual bounce listed bc it's supposed to be a once size fits all bounce that transitions from the toe of the club to the heel
  12. Thank you guys for all of the insightful replies...tons of good ideas to consider. As far as the shafts, I do not have the old ATVs in front of me, but online it says that they have KBS Tour Steel wedge shafts. Both the Cleveland and ATVs are listed at 35.5 in length, cant find length info on the Pings. Also, I have seen more than one person comment on how the ATV wedges are lower spin compared to other wedges...perhaps this lends more to the theory of more spin from my newer wedges is affecting my distance? I will admit that I never gave myself a chance to get totally in tune with the Clevelands, and I have only hit the Ping wedges 2-3 times at this point, so maybe I will indeed grow accustomed to them. I am definitely not hitting the ball pure in the middle of the club face consistently yet, and have had more than a few shanks and close shanks that hit towards the hosel...probably as a result of my distance frustrations and me swinging too hard. As to what Fireinthehole said regarding setup, this was my first thought as well. I have tried playing the ball actually just behind center on full swings (I almost always played the old wedges right at center), and it hasn't really given me any change in trajectory or distance...just resulted in a few huge slices and shanks while I try to get the club face square faster . I'll see if I can get lie angles checked as well.
  13. Until last month I was playing a set of TM ATV wedges (52, 56, 60) given to me by a buddy. I love the way they play from the fairway, but around the greens they werent too amazing. I had reliable full swing distances of 110, 100, and 90 with the wedges, respectively. Last month I decided to upgrade. I bought a set of Cleveland RTX 2.0 wedges (50, 54, 58) and had the opposite problem. The 54 and 58 were great around the greens, but distance wise I was hitting them 10-15 yards shorter per club on average. Seemed very weird to me given their lofts compared to the ATVs. I sold the Clevelands, and picked up a set of Ping Glide wedges in the same lofts, with no change in results...still 10-15 yards shorter compared to the ATVs. I'm wondering if anyone has had similar loft/distance discrepancy problems when switching between manufacturers, and if you have any recommendations? My iron set is Ping S56 with a PW loft of 47, which I carry about 120. Ideally I'd like a gap wedge in the 50-52 degree range that I can carry 110 to give me consistent gaps between clubs. thanks for any ideas.
  14. hit just about every new driver on the market back in april on a simulator at GolfSmith. Numbers wise, the Cobra Fly-Z+ killed everything, but when I purchasd one and took it to the course it sounded dead and went nowhere...not sure if I got a dead club or if the simulator was misleading. I ended up returning the Cobra for a full refund and picked up the G30 LS with standard shaft...love this club. The sound and feel are just perfection, and for a "low spin" driver it sure is forgiving. Only thing I am not a fant of is the stock 45.75" shaft...way too long for me so I usually choke down by a half inch. have considered getting the shaft shortened to 45.25", but I dont have much experience with this and am unsure if it will affect the club's performance? Also considering just buying a new shaft at my desired length
