  1. Just my thoughts.

    60 wedges don't do well in hard turf. They like the soft turf lol

    Good luck

    Unless your're Phil!  I only really use my 60 degree around the greens and out of greenside bunkers. Rarely if ever take a full swing with my 60, especially from the fairway.


    I have to say the SS sole on the glide wedges is perhaps the most simple yet versatile wedge grind ive ever played with.  Bounce is my friend

  2. I currently have 13 clubs in my bag. I think I will take your advise and buy and inexpensive used 60* and maybe a 52* and see how that goes. Straight drives and my irons inside of 150  are the best part of my game. now I'm just looking for a little more accuracy close to the green. 


    For a gap wedge I would error a little closer to your PW than your SW with 50*.  Even finding a set gap wedge to match your irons would be ideal.

    I see you have Adams Speedline irons, so perhaps getting the set GW would be a great idea and then go with a 60* lob wedge of your choosing.

  3. I actually have a 45 PW and a 56 sand wedge. I find the sand wedge a little heavy for hitting off the turf. Most of the courses I play on have a hard surface but I want to have some flexibility because living as far north as I do the courses start the year soft and harden up as the season goes on. I guess what I'm looking for is something middle of the road. I also get a lot of loft out of my shots.


    Thanks for the replies.


    Well you should be able to get plenty of loft out of a 56 degree sandwedge - so maybe that club just isn't the right bounce for you.


    Based on your current gapping it definitely sounds like you would benefit from a 50 degree AW to fill the gap between you PW and SW.  If you want to experiment with a LW, you can find a 60 degree wedge for cheap on ebay or callaway preowned and experiment.


    How many clubs are you currently carrying?

  4. New member.  Just joined a few weeks ago.  From Morristown, NJ.  I play mostly Morris County courses but the few times that I have been able to play Somerset County courses I have been thoroughly impressed.  Sommerset county courses put Morris county courses to shame.


    Somerset definitely has the crown jewel county course, but I would argue Mercer County has the best overall county courses spearheaded by Mercer Oaks east and west.

  5. Stage 2 review up.

    Interesting thoughts. Do other companies generally offer more than a 1 year water proof warranty? Seems pretty standard based on what I've seen.


    Also, you mentioned that they are too comfortable and don't offer any stability. There are a variety of different types of shoes out there - ones that are stability shoes, ones that are more free and those somewhere in between.


    I don't think these shoes should be dinged for a lack of stability when Puma does not advertise them as being a stability shoe. These are in the same category as previous Puma shoes such as the Faas and Faas light that were more of a minimalist shoe. There are other shoes in the Puma lineup that are advertised as and deliver on being a stability shoe.


    I think you're writeup is solid, especially the parts about the nubs wearing out, but I don't think you can ding a shoe for not being something it's not trying to be.

  6. I just bought a Cobra king Ltd. I tried one out at a demo day earlier this year and fell in love with it. It was between the bb alpha 816 or the king and the king took it. Cannot wait to get it.

    My 2nd favorite driver that came out this year.  If I wasn't gaming the M1, the LTD would be in the bag for me

  7. All the talk about moving the weight from the hosel has me thinking about CoG location in wedges.  We have been seeing more companies talk about raising the CoG (moving mass higher in the club face) to create more repeatable launch and to increase spin.  I am curious as to where different wedges compare in terms of CoG placement.


    If there was only a website that could test this sort of thing...

  8. I disagree. I used to game the prov1x and the MTB performs the same or better around the greens for me and on similar strikes with the driver goes at least 20 yards further. No bs. I am able to reach par 5's in two now where I couldn't before with my prov1x. If any of you sign up for this and don't like them, I will gladly (buy)

    take them off your hands. I've hit everything that is called a premium ball and there is nothing better.

    Not sure what you're disagreeing with since I absolutely love the MTB.


    Was simply saying the MTB a 3 piece so it's more similar to the Prov1 and regular zstar (which are 3 piece balls) as opposed to their 4 piece counterparts (the prov1x and ZStarXV)
