  1. - Ron - Washington - Odyssey Tri-Hot #3 (2002) - Putting was a strong point until I bagged a Taylor Spyder - now it's getting slightly better with the Tri-Hot back in the bag, but still weaker than I need it to be.
  2. Here's a few more different ones for you. Sent from my SM-N960U1 using Tapatalk
  3. Alas, my beloved MB is headed back today as well. I'll be waiting for these to hit online... If you think you want to try a blade - even for a moment - put these on your short list!
  4. They may not be for everyone, but the performance won me over after the first hit. Can't wait for these guys to come out this summer.
  5. I don't know about the fairway wood, but this is going in the bag as soon as they have them! AMAZING BLADES! Sent from my SM-N960U1 using Tapatalk
  6. I have to admit that I am "this" player. I've been trying to shake my blades for 5 years now and keep going back to them. Most recently, I moved from my Wilson FG100's to the Mizuno JPX 900 Forged. I'm 5 rounds into my season and already seriously regret it. Probably the biggest issue I have is the fact that I hit the same shot almost everywhere on the face of the club. That's fine for the guy trying to hit the ball straight to the target every time, but when I drive it into the trees or need a good knockdown shot, I just don't have it with the cavity backs. Blades give me the feeling of control, not forgiveness. Blades give me the control to flight the ball where I need it and the ability to move the ball from right to left and left to right. I also like the "no offset" look that blades offer over many of the newer models. Another part of the blade that I prefer is the more traditional lofting of them. I know it sounds stupid, but I don't want to hit a 6 iron 220. That just means that I'm carrying 4 or 5 wedges AFTER my pitching wedge and losing the longer irons. Another side note, I also like blades because everyone is scared of them. When I step on to the first tee with my blades in my bag, people get nervous. When I walk up with the Mizzy's they don't. There's something to the awe that blades deliver to others that can't be explained, but in a comp, blades are definitely something that people fear - and I like that. That may seem childish, but I'll take every competitive advantage I can take, and psyching out your opponents is one of them that comes with carrying blades. Taking all of that into account, nothing, and I mean NOTHING feels as good as a perfectly hit blade. That's all there is to it.
  7. Did they pick the participants already? Congrats!!! I guess with no notification, I didn't get selected... Bummer... But that just means more rounds with the @sub70golf #639mb for me this summer. I can't wait to get my hands on a set of them! Sent from my SM-N960U1 using Tapatalk
  8. I think coming away with three different manufacturers and three different shafts is fine. I would worry more that you got three identical heads with different shafts. I would look at the heads that won and say, for the most part, low to mid handicapper with a decent swing, that will benefit from some of the new tech. Question is, what were the numbers like between the three fittings and compared to your AP2s? If the numbers were close, you probably adapt your swing to the feel of the irons. If they were all over the board, don't make a move yet. If they were the same as your AP2s, then have those fitted and try that out. Maybe??? Sent from my SM-N960U1 using Tapatalk
  9. Last August I started my journey to lose 100 pounds. I was wearing 4x shirts and big pants. Now, 70 pounds into my loss, I'm down to an XLT shirt and normal pants, but that "T" part creates all sorts of crazy problems when shopping for golf clothing. I look around my local stores, which I love to support, only to find "stock sizes" and nothing in tall. I look around that store again and see that the majority of guys in there could easily be fitted into an XLT instead of a 2x, but they just wear the baggy clothing instead of what actually fits. As a "long torso" guy, it's frustrating to see that stores don't stock or manufacturers don't make decent Tall Size offerings. So, with that said, are there any golfers on here that shop XLT and if so, where do you find your best deals on good stuff? I know JC Penny's has been a life saver for me and my new golf gear, but I'd love to find more places that offer better selections of Tall Sizes.
  10. I just wanted to bring up a great ball that I happened to find while testing them this winter. After testing just about everything else out there, I decided on the Aris Golf Co. Hero for this season. It's a 4 piece, urethane ball that performs amazingly well. The distance of the ball is right on par with everything else from the Titleist AVX to the Callaway Chrome Soft and the price point puts it below the Snell MTB and Vice Pro Series. Overall, the Hero performs as well or better than everything else I've hit out there. Just a few details and thoughts on the Hero Pros - Cost: The $22.95 a box price is pretty decent for a tour level ball - free shipping kicks in at 4 dozen - so for under $100 you should make it through the season without an issue. - Availability: They have never had a stock issue or an issue shipping product from California to me in a a few days (ordered Saturday - received Tuesday). - Feel: The Hero feels like butter off the club face - firm butter, but just soft and smooth. - Spin: This ball stops on a dime! The good news is that you can hit rip back shots with these guys or you can just take a normal swing and the ball stops where it hits. Cons - Durability: The cover on the Hero is still a bit suspect to me. I managed 9 holes with one before I started to worry and by the 14th it looked pretty ratty. - That Logo: The logo is a bit "large" for my tastes, but it does make it easy to identify. - Locality: Is that a word? But finding them locally is impossible - they are mail order only and even with fast shipping - if you run out on Friday, you won't see them until Monday. Overall, the Hero is an excellent value in a tour ball - even with the durability issues - and should be a ball to order a trial sleeve of when you start looking for a new performance ball. If you need a distance ball, definitely check out the Scout. If you're a middle of the road player, the Captain is a nice blend of the two. You can check them out at www.arisgolf.com
  11. Range session number three is in the books and now I have a problem... I spent about 60 balls on this 7 iron and it is BUTTER! I don't want to play anything else. I'm tempted to toss my ancient FG49's back in the bag until I can get a full set of the 639MB's. Sound - The click on this head is just about perfect. It's not the muted "thunk" that a cavity back makes and it's not the "thwack" that my other blades make. It's a perfect blend of the two. I will say that forcing shots off the toe produces a lovely higher pitched click that lets you know you missed the center, but that's a good thing. Feel - I can't say in words how amazing this thing feels. It's not spongy like the JPX900F's and it's not harsh like so many of my other blades. I guess I would describe it as a muted harshness maybe? When you center strike them, the ball just goes effortlessly off the club to the target. The mishits tend to deliver a bit more feedback, but that's to be expected in a muscle back design. I like the fact that I can feel the misses, without having to feel the misses. Distance - This was a concern of mine after the first range session with them. I was down about 1/2 a club over my previous blades and a full club off the Mizuno's. Good news... I found my distance with it. With the higher flying Mizzy's, I had moved the ball slightly forward in my stance to cut the backspin (and thus the height) of the shot a bit. I wanted to flight the ball a bit lower with them so that was the change I made to my setup. After moving the ball back into the proper position for the 639's, the distance almost instantaneously appeared again. My dialed in distance (though I still haven't had a Trackman session to verify this) is 168 carry, 175 roll with the standard range ball. If the calculations work out correctly with every other club I've had, this should be a 175 carry on the course with a real ball. Done! Durability - I haven't had the pleasure of hitting a rock with this thing yet, but so far, the grooves, face and the rest of the club head are doing fantastic. I know Sub 70 has a huge product line up and I don't want to hijack this thread with just this bad boy, but man, I love it!
  12. I'm a big fan of front-middle-back for attacking greens. If you always go middle yardage, you could be long, short, right, left or any combination of those. When you play to flag distance, more often then not, you kill off two of those options. For example: 135 to front, 145 to middle and 155 to back. If I go middle and the pin is front, I have 30+ feet for birdie... Ditto if it's back...If I miss left or right to the middle, I have 50+ feet in. Now, if I hit a good 135 shot to a front flag, pretty much the worst I have is a pin high chip from the fringe at 30 feet. Best case, I hit the shot well have have a very possible birdie and easier two putt par. Either way, I like playing to front/middle/back rather than center only.

  13. I'll tell you what... If it's ok with Jay and Jason, when I get my set ordered, I'll forward this one on to you. Is an X Flex too stiff for you or is it good to go? It's also 2° upright if that's not a problem. I think they said I'd be able to order in a few months... Also, remember, this isn't the final finish on them, but Jason said it was getting even better!
