  1. Definitely hosel setting. Changing the face angle would have a much greater impact on dispersion & ball flight. Weights are there to tweak the ball flight. But @jlukesis correct .... the shaft is all about feel and player dependent. Everyone's attack angle, swing speed, kick point, etc. is going to be different. That's why there are so many shaft options out there & why the fitting process is so important.
  2. I have seen it .... multiple times Ahh the beauty of Persimmon! Remember the days I had a set of Hogan Persimmon woods back in high school. Talk about beautiful. I used to polish the heads after I played. I think in my stupid youth I sold them eventually when the first metal woods came out. Dumb a**!
  3. Since I've been a Titleist homer since .... Oh, forever ago. Of course I have to enter! Chris Leesburg, VA 8 handicap Titleist T200 & T300 combo .... I've gamed the AP2's since the originals in 2008 to the 718's of 2017 T100S Thanks for the opportunity MGS & Titleist!
  4. I see you sacrifice forgiveness for distance with the Mavrik. No surprise there
  5. Playing on weekends mostly here in VA still. As long as the courses are open, I will still play. Riding in the cart still as well. Most courses don't have enough carts to allow single riders for everyone. So I will ride with someone, but still do a lot of walking besides the cart. I basically use the cart as a transport for my clubs & for the ride from the green to the next tee box. I practice safety at all times.... I bring sanitizer, leave the flag in, do the 'ol "elbow bash" instead of a handshake, wipe down the cart with sanitizing wipes even if the course said they did. These are some trying times but I'll be damned if it's going to stop me from playing. We all gotta die of something ... so let me die on the golf course.
  6. Good Idea! This will help tremendously for everyone.
  7. If you wanna make a drive across the borders, VA courses are still open
  8. Z-Balata! Yeah man I loved those balls back in the day. They were the shiznit .... I couldn't always afford Titleist back then
  9. My my! Those look sweet! I haven't played Ping irons since the days of the PIng Eye2's. Just in time because I'm looking for a new OEM this year anyway. Chris - VA 12 & rising Titleist T200 150 yard 7-iron Thanks for the opportunity!
  10. So they make those in taper tip .355? Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  11. Are they still the T300's? What shafts are you putting in them now?
  12. YOU don't have any irons?? I find that hard to believe.
  13. Not sure why this should have an influence on us general hackers. I've always said the Pro's should have a different set of rules than the general golfing public. All this is going to do is drive away more people from the game. OEM"s are not going to manufacture different clubs. "Yeah I'm looking for that club that hits it about 20 yards shorter?" Not sure what they are thinking here. Just make the fairways narrower, more rough, not so rock hard so they get 75 yards of roll, etc.
  14. No pain in the hip anymore which is good. But my back is still jacked up. Before I had pain in the back & the hip, so I couldn't really differentiate the two. Now I really feel it in the back now that I'm walking the way God intended me to. Still lacking strength in the right leg for sure. Plus I'm still conscious of it in my golf swing too. I swing as though my hip is the Old hip, so I don't get back on my right side. I tell ya .... getting old sucks!
  15. Sure wish I was able to continue with this but my hip surgery got in the way.
  16. Yeah man! You don't call a brutha, you don't ask to play golf,. I don't want to just invite myself to your course & you not be there. You know I thought we were friends LOL
  17. I see how it is .... you don't talk to a brother anymore?
  18. The Golf Academy would have access to a Launch Monitor, yes? That's why I'm a little surprised at those results. As long as those green fees stay up where they are for Pebble, I won't be playing there. It's just a golf course. I couldn't fathom going out & shooting 90 & having to pay $500 for it. It's not like you're walking away with a set of new clubs or anything. If I wanted to spend $100/hour, I would get lessons from Michael Breed or someone like that. Not hacking around a course .... "Well there goes another $5.50." (each time you swing the club)
  19. 1. Chris/VA 2. Project X HZRDUS black stiff 3. Anywhere between 95 - 100 mph, depend on the day & how my back feels! 4. Better dispersion for sure. And we all want more distance of course. 5. No but for this testing I would find a location that has one. Only because I would like to see the difference in numbers from my current shaft, if any. Thanks for the opportunity. This shaft intrigues me, especially the F3, being firmer around the handle & grip & how it would translate into more carry distance. Plus I've never gamed a Fuji shaft except an old Speeder.
  20. Well they should ..... cause they're missing out!
  21. I thought "Soft was Slow?" What gives? Are we testing this one out yet?
  22. I'm hoping to get out this weekend for an unexpected January round. I need to clarify my thoughts on the X again. I'm leaning towards that ball as the best between the two for my game. It's a great ball for the price point for sure. Not unlike the Kirkland, I expect to find a lot of these in the woods in the coming months. They seem to be selling quite a bit at my local DSG.
  23. This was a great read. Congrats guys!
  24. Good Luck to all of those who enter this one! I have the SX500 & it's a dream to use. Makes finding distances quick & easy. Find distances to hazards is just a move of the finger away.
