  1. Being a lefty limits my equipment options. Hence, I'm more intrigued by the new Xcaliber iron shaft...

    Snell golf balls

    I have had good luck with the prov-1x. I'm hoping to get the trial dozen for Christmas so I can try both math models and see which one works better.
  3. I thought that was a long time ago, like a year or so. This is a new ball they just recently tweaked.
  4. Rod in west-central Indiana Pro-V1Xs I got used on a store closeout sale. I emptied their shelves at $12 / doz. 105 mph
  5. I got an email from them saying they had tweaked their covers for the sake of durability. I tried some blues and some grays over the summer, and had a problem with the covers shredding. Just curious if anyone has played them since they changed the cover. I will probably get a dozen or 2 for Christmas, and will play them if I get them when I go to Tucson in January.
  6. I had Slighter golf do a refurb on a Scotty RedX, then build me a custom putter. It's a beauty, and I still use it 12-13 years after I bought it. My custom Slighter I believe cost me around $500
  7. I've got a Stephanie mallet that I've had for a few years. I would like to find a lefty Athena to add to my collection. The Yes I've got is a good putter.
  8. There are many places you can go. I'll just name a few. Diamond Tour Golf Monark Golf Value Golf Hireko
  9. I'll be heading to Tucson in January with a group of friends for a little golf. I've never been to Tucson, so I would like some recommendations please. What's great, maybe few know much about, maybe off the beaten path a bit, a best kept secret, etc. Fill me in!
  10. I went old school last week myself. I took 2 drivers out with me, my gamer Cobra F7+. And an old friend that had been sitting in the trunk for several years now, my Geek DotComThis driver. Wow. I had forgotten just how great that DCT driver is. And it was several yards longer than my Cobra. That head is probably 12-15 years old. And it's still LONG. It's going to be staying in the bag for awhile. I might even let him try a new shaft, as I have something in mind to try. But that DCT driver is still seriously long, and feels amazing. My old gamer is once again my new gamer.
  11. Rod Indiana Slighter custom I'm a lefty, only 1 available, but more than happy to take a single bend Elevado for a spin.

    New Cut DC anyone?

    I haven't played enough golf with them yet to pass judgment. Thought I would play Sun, not sure about that now.

    New Cut DC anyone?

    Surprised no one has responded yet. I guess no one has tried the DC yet. Oh well. Time will tell. I might get to play 18 this weekend, might know more then.
  14. I would make the argument, sitting here at the desk, having not seen anyone else hit a ball... The loss in swingweight will have a minimal impact on how well you hit your driver. How long it is will have a much bigger impact. In my opinion, clubs, especially drivers, are longer than most of the general public can hit well and control. I'm in my early 40s, have been playing since I was a teen, and I still play my driver 44". If I buy a branded driver (not a component), the first thing I do is peel the grip off, trim it back to 44", regrip and go. Have a hit a 45" driver? Yes. Farther? For sure. But I was so much more inconsistent with my ball-striking, it wasn't worth it. I was missing more fairways by wider margins. The longer driver made the game harder, not easier. By the 2nd tee, I didn't care that it felt different than my 44" driver. What I cared about was how wide my misses were, and how frequently I didn't hit it well. My 44" driver still goes over 270, that's good enough for me. Me and my F7+ are perfectly happy together at 44".
