  1. I had mailed a set of irons USPS Priority Mail from Northern California to Southern California which should take two days. Two weeks later the eBay buyer contacts me that they never arrived. I had to call USPS to start a trace of the package. Then I had to fill out a lost package form online. Then the Postmaster from local post office in the destination town called me. Finally, I see they started moving through the USPS system again, so they were found somewhere and scanned. But it then took another week to travel across Los Angeles before they were delivered. The funny thing is, once they were delivered, they were never scanned by the mailman, so even though the buyer contacted me saying they arrived, I’m still getting emails every other week from USPS saying they are still trying to locate my package. [emoji848] Then last week I had a package coming from Southern Cal to me via USPS Priority Mail and what should take 2 days took a week. The package sat in Oakland, a 40-minute drive from me, for 5 days without moving. Hopefully, your clubs will turn up soon. I had no hope for the set I shipped but they miraculously turned up. Unfortunately USPS has some new leadership and has decided the best way to save money is to no longer pay overtime to its employees. That should be great for morale and the consumer getting their packages in a timely manner. [emoji849] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. Not stupid at all if the shafts don’t work for you. However, Hogan Apex shafts were some of the most wanted shafts from that era. People would reshaft their Macgregor’s, Wilson’s, Powerbilt’s, etc, with Hogan Apex shafts. They are very similar to True Temper Dynalite shafts, 125g or so, active tip section. If you were to reshaft you’ll need to pound out the pin in the hosel. You’ll need a set of punches for the job. After the pins are removed you heat and pull like any other modern club. A bit more work than a modern shaft swap but not impossible. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. I was still playing Tiger Woods 2006 on my PlayStation 2 until my kids persuaded me to get an Xbox One back in February. Perfect timing with the lock down and everything. I have The Golf Club 2019 on Xbox and its pretty good. A difficult game but very entertaining. But yes, a simulator at home would be awesome. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  4. Well after my experience with the switch from a heavyweight steel shaft to a lightweight graphite I’d advise against it without a fitting. Even going from a 120+ steel to a 90+ steel is too big of a change, at least for me. I spent the last week testing shafts at my club that were similar to the Hogan offerings using Cobra Forged Tec and Titleist 620 CB heads. The KBS Tour 90 stiff steel shaft was too light and I kept hitting it thin. When I switched to the KBS $-Taper 120 (closest thing my club had to the KBS Tour-V that Hogan offers) I was hitting it center but I didn’t care for the lower ball flight. Finally, I tried the good ole Dynamic a Gold S300 and X100 and the X100 was perfect. Higher ball flight and more spin than the KBS offerings, at least for me, and the heavy weight got my tempo back. I think with a Direct-To-Consumer model it is probably more important to stick with a similar weight shaft than focusing strictly on flex. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  6. I’ve been using Tacki- Mac non-tapered jumbo grips on my woods and irons for about a year now and they’ve worked great. When I decided to switch to a mallet style putter I put one on it as well and my putting has never been better. It feels very natural. Good luck with it! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. What’s funny is how my game and bag has changed since I started this thread. Now that I am playing persimmon woods exclusively the hybrid isn’t even a consideration. I am carrying either 1,3,4,5 or 1,3,4 woods depending on which wedge configuration I take. I am also much more comfortable with my 3-iron so it’s in the bag regularly. I really enjoy hitting higher lofted woods though. Even if I was playing modern woods I think I’d be looking at woods instead of hybrids. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. I just wanted to let everyone know my situation with the Hogan’s. Turns out a reshaft is in order and the Ben Hogan Co. has offered to switch them out for me. I got on the TrackMan yesterday at the Titleist demo day and was able to dial in my proper shafts which to my surprise are Project X 6.0 which are a pretty stout shaft. Most say it is slightly below an X-stiff. Earlier in the week I hit a combination of the Cobra Forged Tec irons with a variety of KBS shafts and the Titleist 620 CB with Project X LZ and Dynamic Golds. I figure the Forged Tec would approximate the PTx Pro and the Titleist 620 CB would the Icon irons. The KBS shafts all seem to have a low spin, distance characteristic to them. While some could work, none felt optimal for the trajectory I like. The Project X LZ felt great and had the height and spin I like, but that isn’t a shaft offering of Hogan. That left me with the good old fashioned Dynamic Gold X100. Great height, great spin. Never even gave that shaft a thought but it flat out flew how I want it. So it looks like X100’s are going in the Hogan’s. A classic shaft for a classic club brand. That sounds right to me.
  9. Wow! The clubs look great guys! Custom boxes, hats, swag, and pretty much endless options when it comes to shaft choices. All from a company just a couple of years old. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. Thanks Ray. Yes, let me know when you want to send some over my way for a spa treatment. [emoji16] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. And the after. Ready to get back on the course in style.
  12. It's been awhile since I posted to this thread, but that doesn't mean my workbench has been empty. Just finished up this set of persimmons for someone. They had seen better days for sure. The 2-wood was even in two pieces!
  13. Beauties! Hit them well. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  14. Nothing drastic, just a 1/2” extension. I’ll PM you. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
