    Those CB 57's are absolute stunners! I was close to getting them but I preferred the look of the PP9003SN at address - something about the high toe just spoke to me.

    Noticed you made nice bag choice too!

    Haha I did and it was 100% based on your reviews!

  2. Really like the adventures in golf series with Eric, really cool to get a peak behind the process for the clubs. 

    I've had folks from my club try my Miura's out and a few went out to get some sets. Pretty solid clubs, and with the amount of money you really should get fit- especially if you don't already know your specs.

    They really know how to hide offset and make a club seem bigger or smaller than it really is.

    59 and doin fine, I play XBox almost everyday. I play games and chat with my son but I never play online. Red Dead Redemption 2 is what I am ambling through at the moment. I’ve been playing since pong not hardcore gaming just to entertain the 12 year old in me.

     

    My father who just turned 50 received an Xbox one for this very reason. He was a big western fan who he has been having fun playing through that. Not to mention with all of the applications on there it is easier to have all of them in one place, as well as having the ability to watch live television via the HDMI in the back.

  4. ... I don't actually feel bad for OEM's but sometimes I certainly understand how difficult it is to design a club that appeals to  gofers today concerning looks and feel. I played the Epic last season and loved the sound/feel that is very dense with a deep thud. Callaway got hammered for producing a driver that felt "dead" to many younger players that never hit a persimmon driver. So the Rogue and SZ has a more explosive sound/feel that of course I do not care for.

     

    .

     

    I would agree with this description- I used the Epic pretty extensively, but it felt pretty dead, that's just the jailbreak tech working. 

     

    There is a lot of good stuff out there, but to the OP- from your brief description , it sounds like a sub par fitting. There might be life in that driver, but it may not have been fit properly. 


  5. Haha It used to be higher but it still on the high side but that loft fits my yardage gap nicely and fits how I like to play it.

     

    I actually used to have Titleist through the whole bag (Including a Scotty and bag) but the Cobra stuff is on the new-ish side and I got all of it with either tournament winnings or for decently less than retail. I JUST turned pro but yea I got fit for pretty much everything. Only the 3 wood and putter weren't but I had a really good idea of what I needed.

     

    Corban headcovers? 

     

    Were you playing out at Creekside Golf Club? 

     

    Good luck testing the Hogans!

  6. I just got back from Golf Galaxy, and was testing putters. I tried various Pings, TMs, Odyssey putters. They all felt so soft, It was like I couldn't really feel the strike. Are there any putters with a firmer feel?

     

    Off the top of my head and based on my opinion:

     

    Taylor made spider tour black

    PXG gunboat

    Bettinardi with the honeycomb milling

    Toulon putters

     

    Those first two may have inserts but felt firmer though the PXG had the least feedback. Generally I stay away from insert putters for the same reason, though the Toulon putters have the sharpest feedback when you stray from the milling in the middle of the face, almost a tinny aluminum response.


  7. I wanted to get peoples thoughts on shafts.  I feel like a lot of what people look at are the clubs and not the shafts in the clubs.  When Demoing clubs, do you automatically go with the shaft you normally play, or do you get input from the reps?  

     

    I feel like more golfers should put more time and energy into their shafts (said tongue and cheek).  But seriously, I was using the wrong shafts for 4 years and didn't really think much about what shaft was in the club.  When I was asked which shaft I just said, "I don't know, stock."  I finally went to a Titleist ball fitting and the fitter said my back spin numbers were way to high.  He asked what type of shaft I had and I replied I don't know Stiff.  It started getting me thinking more about how important the shafts are. 

     

    I used a friends club that had a KBS C-taper X-stiff shaft in it and my jaw dropped with much my ball penetrated through the air.   

     

    There are so many shaft options out there, but they're just as important as the clubs being used.  

     

    Are you using the right shafts?  

     

    This is why I like Mizuno's shaft optimizer- I think it does a good job of showing you three options to start with- of course only shaft options mizuno carries. Trialing them out with a fitter may further clean up the choice. At this point in time I could probably use any iron head I want to, but the shaft is my dilemma!


  8. I found 82% to be a closer figure to what I see, 98 with a 6i and around 118 with a driver.

     

    Problem with this is these numbers are taken pretty early during a fitting and so i would be interested to see where I am at the end of my round!


  9. Considering my miura wedges were $260 and mizuno's were around 130-150 for forged; it'd be tough for me. Though my ping glide stealth wedges are just fine

  10. Great reviews guys! I got my LST back at the start of May and it has been awesome all around! When i got fit the heaviest and stiffest (and cheapest) option was a HZRDUS yellow 76 6.5 and I hit some long drives, but not a good fit, the lowest spin and launch combo was 14.4* and 2900 spin, that was with a 8.5* head lofted down 1*. I loved the head and got fit into a Oban tour limited 70 05 flex and am now at 11* and 2400 spin. 

     

    Really happy with the driver I even got fit into a set of irons and wedges. I think Ping has some solid offerings even for faster swing speed/ better players. They may not be as soft as miura irons/ wedges I was playing but they are feeling pretty good.

  12. For my 600th post (a mild achievement), it is kind of poetic that I get to celebrate first in my golf career. (a mild achievement)

     

    It finally happened.  After trying to figure out how to put together a complete round and break 90, it finally happened.

     

    My wife and I played together yesterday afternoon, and playing with my wife means that this is a legit score.  My wife doesn't give me any putts, doesn't allow mulligans, and overall holds me incredibly accountable. 

     

    I played "boring" golf (keep the ball on the fairway from the tee, get as close to the green as possible on the 2nd shot, chip close and putt out) on the last 9 holes and for whatever reason, everything just clicked.  Can't wait to get back out there again and see what the golf gods have in store for me.

    Congrats! Always good to see a goal achieved!

  13. FWIW, for anyone seeking to try these Vice Pure gloves, they are currently sold out in Medium/Large, Large, and Medium.  I'll have to try their site out later though as they have been reviewed positively.

     

    Its the mygolfspy bump! Much like the Ping ketch when it ran the table a few years ago. 

     

    Still stand by this review! I tried the Srixon Z premier glove and it is pretty good, but the sizing is more consistent with the Vice glove. I will say the Srixon is a lot easier to get my hands on and roughly the same price when the 3 pack is considered for vice. 


  14. I learned to play in my late 20s, played for a few years, and then life got in the way. Just returning to the sport after 7 years away, and much more committed to it than before (though still struggling to break 90)!

     

    I'm just beginning to replace the original set of Alpha Silver Diamond irons and hybrids that I bought a decade ago (Sasquatch Sumo also on the chopping block). Looking forward to joining the conversation on here - I've lurked for a few weeks now and really appreciate the content thus far.

     

     

    Welcome to the forums!

     

    Always great to have new members.


  15. Hmm that's interesting- our rep came and was on the putting green. Offered ball samples and a card to write down my own findings. As well as some stickers- even though I didn't have 1 titleist club in the bag

    I was told that the pro v1 and 1x were switching characteristics- it certainly seemed that way because the 1x performed way different than the 2014 pro v1x( my favorite) I was playing and I ended up liking the pro v1.

    In any case they didn't watch me hit any of the shots. Glad you got some feedback though!
