  1. Mine have Steelfiber I95 regular flex shafts. I went to graphite with my set to offset arthritis issues in my hands and fingers. I have looked at TM and Ping offerings but they don’t perform any better so I am very happy with what I have. I heard that Tom Wishon is considering some kind of update to this gem.
  2. I have Wishon 771cs irons in my bag. I’ll contend that they are one of the most forgiving cavity back irons out there.
  3. I had a set with KBS Tour 90 stiff flex. Very easy to hit. I gave them to my brother as he is a beginner at golf.
  4. I got to hit one over the summer and loved it. Read the great review and follow up comments here and vowed to seek one out. Coming from a SIM which is long but very fade biased, I wanted more forgiveness. I just picked one up used am looking forward to using it next spring. I have not been here and anywhere much due to a rotator cuff injury and repair. So I am looking forward to my return to golf with the Extreme in hand. Thanks.
  5. This topic has me thinking. I used to use a Cleveland Launcher 7 wood years ago. Off the tee 200 yard club. Loved how it felt. I currently use Callaway XR OS 3&4 hybrids. They are long but I can be wild with them. I think I may revisit the idea of a 7 wood as winter project. Thanks guys.
  6. I will agree with the shorter shaft being easier to hit the center or sweet spot. Another thing to take in account is the the type of swing you have. If you are of the variety that has a long, languid swing then usually you can handle the longer club length. If you have a short, quick backswing and an aggressive transition like myself, then the shorter club length usually works better. At least that has been found in my experimentation. If it works choking up, then don’t change the club. Find an inexpensive shorter one from the past and mess around. It can be a fun winter project.
  7. Just recently started using the 10 finger grip due to arthritis in my fingers and hands. I was using an overlap with some success but with too thin of a grip, it resulted in waking up in the morning being unable to close my left middle finger and increased pain.Had issues with the right hand in the past. I have to say, it has been very helpful in alleviating discomfort but the bonus is more solid contact and increased distance. What I also did was go to at least midsize and jumbo grips. Hands relax more. I am not squeezing the crap out of the club, which is my tendency. I don’t have really large hands. Oh by the way, two very good golfers I know, use it and feel it’s natural to them and have never considered changing. So as others have said, use it if it works no matter what others say and do.
  8. I write the number 72. What I wore playing high school football.
  9. I prefer walking. With the mild winter we just had, I had the opportunity to do it much more. Played, walking 18 yesterday and today. I play better and enjoy the exercise. I also walk very fast and don’t like all the running around in a cart.
  10. Connecticut is open for play. I have played more this past winter than any other. My home course is packed on weekends. They are also doing a great job with the social distancing guidelines.
  11. The Greatest Game Ever Played. It is like the Rocky of golf movies. Love it.
  12. Been walking a lot this year due to the mild winter. I wear Sketchers trail sneakers. I find them more comfortable than golf shoes. So spikeless is preferable.
  13. This past winter in CT was very mild. It’s been at least 10 years since I played as much as I did this year. Most of the time, I played alone. Most of these rounds, I played mostly on days off during the week, very early in the morning. Felt like I had the course to myself some days, thus I could experiment with equipment and hit two to three balls each shot. I also walk, saving money and getting a workout. I have a close friend who makes an effort to join me as often as he can. It is my preference to have him there. With the recent pandemic, the course has been open and busy. I still try to play early and alone most of the time. I am used to it and make the most of it as I said above. I have a golf league starting soon. It will be different with the social distancing that is present now. Don’t know if it will be as enjoyable as other years.
  14. Golf Pride Cp2 wrap. Smooth with added thickness. Really helps with arthritic fingers.
  15. In my experience as a 12 handicap, self admitted inconsistent driver. 1) Shaft has more of an influence on my consistency in launch, carry and spin thus affecting my distance and dispersion either good or bad. Lighter and longer with soft tip , I get high spin and more dispersion. Heavier and shorter in length less dispersion but lower launch no matter how much I change the loft. 2) Hosel and loft settings. I see subtle changes due to this variable. 3) Moving weights. I have not seen any noticeable change in direction. I feel this variable is way overrated to make a draw or slice. I will say that the sub variable of length of shaft has a substantial influence on consistency in direction and distance for me. I think attack angle plays a considerable role in the way any of these variables can affect your shot.
