  1. It's really a personal preference, but I like matching my wedge shafts to my iron shafts. I like having a consistent feel throughout my set. You could build them a couple swing weight points heavier if you want a heavier feel.
  2. There's been many drivers that have attempted to knock it out of the bag, but I'm still gaming the SLDR 430 head I got on the TMaG trip when it was released. The fitter there adjusted the loft and sliding weight, and I haven't touched it since. I did swap out the whiteboard I was fit in to for a Ventus Black this year but I use the same loft setting as before. It's taken 7 seasons but I'm slowly realizing this combo is as good as I can get for me in a driver.
  3. Tony just had a great article about this on the blog. If you haven't seen it yet it's a great read. https://mygolfspy.com/should-you-dump-your-pitching-wedge/ Personally I go set matching down through my gap wedge, but that's just based on how I use them. If you are primarily using them for full swings and want the same type of flight you get with the rest of your irons then I would recommend the set matching route. If you want to be able to use them in lots of different scenarios, chipping around the green, or trying to flight it lower and spin more then typically a PW that matches your wedges is going to be more versatile. I use mine for mostly full/half swings and don't use it for chipping around the green. FWIW a couple iron sets ago I ditched the set matching PW and went with a 45 degree Scor wedge. I would occasionally get jumpers/flyers and didn't trust the yardage with my set PW. I played the Scor wedges for a couple seasons and then when I got new irons I liked them so much I also bought the set matching GW.
  4. I switched to BOA a few years ago and won't buy anything without it. The one exception being the USA edition of the CodeChaos that came out this year. Love that shoe but BOA wasn't an option for that edition.
  5. When I am hitting driver well it's generally a straight flight, but I pull it. Rather than going through a long process of fixing or rebuilding a swing, I now just aim farther right on my setup and usually pull it down the middle (if I'm playing well). It's by far the easiest fix if you are overall happy with the ball flight, just not the direction. And if it's pretty consistent.
  6. Finally some good news in 2020!!! How they make it safe and sound the last few miles!
  7. Here's a great place to start looking. https://mygolfspy.com/best-stand-bag-for-2020/ and also last years test... https://mygolfspy.com/the-best-stand-bags-of-2019/
  8. If you have taper tip shafts, you don't want to ever trim from the tip. You install the proper shaft in the proper iron and then trim the butt end to playing length. If you want to adjust the flex you would do what's called hard stepping or soft stepping the shafts. That would be taking say a 7i shaft and installing it in the 6i (hard stepping, goes up in flex) or installing it in the 8i (soft stepping, goes down in flex) For each "step" the iron shaft flex changes by about 1/3 of a flex. So in your example (assuming 1/2" length progression) you would pull all the shaft and move them up 2 irons. So your 7i shaft would get installed in the 5i. This would make your clubs 1" shorter and play approx 2/3 rd's of a flex stiffer. Obviously you would then be 2 shafts short of a set so you'd have to buy 2 new shafts for the short irons and you'd have two extra from your longest 2 irons. If you have parallel tip shafts those are a different animal. There will be a trimming guide from the OEM that says how much to trim the tip of the shaft for each iron. If you want them stiffer you would trim more from the tip, softer trim less from the tip. Parallel tip shafts are not iron specific until you choose how much to trim the tip. For graphite shafts there should also be a recommended tip trim guide depending on what it's going in. There is also a limit on how much you can trim the tip. Usually only the first 3" or so are parallel so if you trim more than that it won't fit in the hosel any more. Same principal applies though. Trimming from the tip will stiffen the shaft more, trimming from the butt doesn't affect stiffness as much. All that said, all of this shaft trimming is really fine tuning something that fits pretty well to begin with. Generally speaking it's a small tweak, you aren't going to turn an L flex in to an R flex through tip trimming. You're much better off just buying the proper fitting shaft and installing that to begin with.
  9. If you have a ferrule on it, try pushing it back down toward the head. If it moves then it's not the hosel coming out, it's the ferrule creeping up. Typically epoxy fails for only a couple of reasons, didn't prep shaft properly (abraided and cleaned), didn't mix epoxy equally or enough, or epoxy got overheated and started to break down. I'd just start eliminating variables and see if it keeps happening.
  10. On mine if I hold the button down it keeps giving distances (until a lock on) So I always shoot the background first and swipe it left and right over the flag until it either locks on or I get the same reading a couple of times.
  11. From listening to Tony talk about the fall releases on the No Putts Given podcast there could still be some questions. There is still 2019 product on the shelves. 2020 product has not sold through at all like people were forecasting due to the global pandemic and most of retail being shut down. If we get a 2nd wave of covid and stores have to close again it's gonna get very interesting to see who discounts product first just to move through it. If current 2020 models from Taylormade and/or Callaway are on shelves with steep discounts it would be a very hard market to launch a new $500+ dollar driver in. I'm guessing as of right now a Titleist launch is still on the books, but with how fast everything has been changing when it comes to Covid it's not out of the realm that we see changes to release cycles for this season.
  12. I just got the USA edition ones for Father's Day. Haven't worn them on the course yet, but they are super comfy right out of he box walking around the living room. And they look fantastic!
  13. There are all kinds of mounts you can get. You can put them in the little glove boxes, you can get an under roof mount that holds the speakers and a head unit. You can get boat speakers that you can just clip on to the roof supports. I had a buddy that had the charging port on his cart relocated to the rear and put them on each side of the batteries under the seat. Personally I went with a Bazooka Party Bar attached between the two rear roof supports.
