  1. I suck and I can feel the difference in some balls. Tried a Cally SuperSoft the other day and it felt nothing like the Maxfli Tour X and Vice Pro Plus balls I have been playing. It felt soft and heavy off the driver. I don't really care too much about the feel though, but just how they react on pitches and chips. I like a urethane ball and most will do fine, but some like the original AVX and current Tour B RXS are just awful around the greens IMO. They don't check well enough for small fast greens.
  2. I seem to respond better to drills rather than swing aids. I hit balls L-L with my feet together and drills like that. I do like the Orange Whip and I have some of the Swingyde knockoff plastic attachments, but I need to make some swings with the aid and then some without or I'm just sort of reacting to the swing aid.
  3. I've been using Oakley's with Fuse Rx lenses. The fuse lenses were about half the cost of Oakley's and I think they're better. I mainly wear them to find my ball since I can't see far away.

    Maxfli Tour

    I've been using the Tour X for a while now and love it. I think the latest version performs a bit better although it does seem like it scuffs a bit easier. I was reluctant buying 4 dozen balls at once even < $100, but I'm sold.
  5. FWIW the GripMaster leather grips are the tackiest by far. It's like pine tar is infused into them; nothing else is close. I like Pure and Iomic, but never found them to be that soft or tacky. I have been using CP2 Pros for a while now and they are the softest rubber grip I have tried and they are relatively tacky when kept clean. Recently tried some Sonar and they are definitely tackier than the CP2 Pro while still being relatively soft for a rubber grip.
  6. I'm a fan of the Maxfli Tour X as well. Used to be 2 dozen for $50 and then you always had a $10 DSG credit. I bought 4 dozen for just over $100 recently so they have gone up, but so has everything else. I like the Tour B X , Snell MTBX and other similar balls, but I score about the same with pretty much all the "X" balls.
  7. I struggled when drivers started getting really large as well. I was just settling into a 300cc head 12 degrees at 44" when everyone else was moving to 460cc. When I finally did get to 460cc I had 11* and 44.5" and it was relatively heavy. Two years ago I played 45" and last year I was at 45.75"...still might go back to 45". I had to adjust my setup for the driver with the ball teed more forward and I also try to get my shoulders tilted more (right shoulder lower than left assuming a righty). I try to feel like I'm swinging a bit flatter too. Definitely something you need to hit the range and experiment with and getting a lesson probably wouldn't hurt. I would much rather hit driver now since they are so large and forgiving. I only club down on the doglegs that I might run through with driver. If the driver isn't working I have TM Original One Mini 13.5* that still works really well. I don't carry it as far as the driver, but it's so low spin that it runs out almost as far. Might be a good stepping stone to a larger driver assuming the low spin works for you. Or maybe try to find an older driver 300-400 cc to start with.
  8. I had a milder version of that trying CBD for golf. I think the problem was I took too much. I had tried the smallest dose of a full spectrum tincture and felt pretty much nothing so I doubled that (still relatively small) dose and felt horrible and played horrible lol. CBD doesn't really seem to help my sleep, aches or anything in my limited experimentation. I've found Turmeric and related supplements to help a lot with my 55 year old aches. Regular exercise and stretching is also vital for me. I stop either the supplements or exercise for 2 weeks or more and my body is NOT happy.
  9. Even though I don't lose a lot of balls, I like the Maxfli Tour balls for a bargain "tour" ball. They always seem to be available at 2 for $55 and the $10 DSG credits are easy to come by. I like some of the other big name tour balls a bit better, but not enough to justify the price....and when I play a ProV it doesn't seem to help my score. I definitely want a urethane cover on my ball. I did really like the Kirkland 4-piece ball, but found the original 3-piece to be short hitting. I haven't tried the latest Kirkland ball yet, but I hear it is better and the price is certainly good. I like Snell also, but they weren't always available this year.
  10. Kevin Hartford, CT I walk most rounds; probably about 90% Currently using a BagBoy Tri-Swivel II push cart
  11. Really tempted to give this fairway a shot. Have always loved Maltby irons, but never cared for their woods. I gave up component stuff like Maltby and Wishon several years ago and currently have all Callaway, but I'm tempted to build a fairway wood, hybrid and irons this winter using Maltby.
