  1. Jeff, West Des Moines Iowa USAmerica Ping Faith-Wack-E 32" Fetch. First, I like the adjust-ability for length which for me is 32". There weren't any stock 32" men's putters so I bought the women's version. 2nd I like the face-balanced feel. Have not played a milled putter for a long time but have experimented with the Heppler's and like the feel. Also much prefer the fetch or scoop method vs bending down to gran the ball. Check out all the models (see them here), and tell us which one interests you and why?
  2. Thanks for posting. LOVE your bag from The Prairie Club. Can't wait for my next visit. Please say hello to Granny Pines for me!
  3. Interesting set-up. I love the conventional ForgedTec's and suspect the one-lengths are just as solid. Got to hit the one length hybrids a while back and was pleasantly surprised. Are you conventional length in the 56* and 60* wedges or same as the rest of the irons?
  4. With those iron shafts, I would've expected the G410 to be an LST.
  5. Hello all and happy Friday! Handicap and Location - 7.4 West Des Moines Iowa (a mere 293 miles from Sub 70 Global HQ) Current Irons and 8-iron distance - MacGregor VIP 1025CB Carry distance for 8-iron about 135. Need more yards but really want a players look. Seems like a fit What do you know about Sub70? - First learned of them thru MGS then started reading up. Have exchanged several messages with them since learning they were based in my Dad's hometown of Sycamore. Hoping to stop in for a tour on my next trip to Chicago. Nice variety of clubs across sill levels. I als
  6. Could use some help. Been playing TP5s for the last 2 years having switched from ProV1s. Found the TP5s to be 5-8 yds longer with very similar approach spin. Heard about the new 2020 Bridgestone balls and was eager to try. Tested the B RXS (green box) which is supposed to be the higher spinning of the slow swing balls. Hit it about a club longer than the TP5s but could not get any spin what so ever. Haven't done VFIT but the online questionnaire puts me in B RX (red box). Then this weekend, I pulled out a regular ProV1 and hit it great. Good distance and lots of spin. Wit
  7. Two thoughts on your question. First, what's lacking at the top of the bag? When you said you played one-lengths, I was surprised to see the Ping Crossovers in the bag. I would have guessed hybrids. I've tried the Cobra one-length hybrids and was surprised to see how closely they matched the distances in my full length hybrids while being SUPER EASY to hit and control. Outside of one length, have also found the Ping G410 hybrids to be long and forgiving. and since adjustable you can really dial in the lofts to create good gapping. Suspect the yardage gaps between the two current crosso
  8. Welcome and I concur on the challenge of friends that just don't get as excited about gear. Really like the looks of the driver and very cool headcover. Also good to see you are not afraid to mix mfrs in your bag. Keep it up. Find what works. Play your game. At the end of the day, it's not how, it's how many. Hit 'em straight!
  9. Might suggest the Ping G410 3 Hybrid with stock loft of 19*. It's adjustable +/- 1.5*. Depending on the course, you could dial it down to 17.5* (similar to current 5-wood) or up to 20.5 (close to a 4-iron). Also if the LZ 5.5 shafts are working well, I suspect you swing speed is better suited to the hybrid vs the 4-iron. Good luck!
  10. Stout set-up! Would love to see this set up in action. Anything on YouTube? Have a great season.
  11. How do you like the Forged Tec Irons? Would love to hit with the AMT whites. Also, staying in the Cobra fam, the F9 Driver is widely available online at $249. Great deal on a great stick.
  12. Jeff - Note Heaven (Iowa) 7.4 Nickent 17* and 20* The shots I hit with hybrids have to be completely predictable. 100% confidence is what I'm looking for to hit that mid launch penetrating shot. Had a Tour Edge gap wedge in the bag until my son stole it. Recall hitting hybrids in a sim a while back and found them very easy to hit and make great contact.

  14. Pretty good pricing right now on both Titleist and Ping woods. Both planned new models this fall. Understand Titleist is on track for that. Don't know about Ping. But would act pretty quick just in case for both.
