  1. I've got a Rapsodo Mobile Launch Monitor for sale, comes with the original packaging, case, and charging cord. I sold it on eBay for $385 plus shipping, but the high bidder cancelled the order. I am working through some second chance offers, but I can cancel those if someone is interested. I'm looking to get $350 including shipping in continental US. My eBay handle is thebaums if you'd like to see any feedback. It works great outdoors, but I was really looking for something to use in my garage during the winter and rain; whether it was me or the MLM it wasn't meeting my needs when hitting into a net with limited space.
  2. I don’t get a ton of practice time, but when I do I spend 80% on short game. Course management and greens in regulation are the two things I excel at on the course. I’ve been playing golf since I was 7 years old so a lot of the mechanics are just ingrained in me, but hitting greens in regulation and having a short game when you don’t are what I find the most important.
  3. In 2021 my goal was to play more competitive golf. And I did play in 6 straight up stroke play tournaments. Wasn’t always pretty, but I think I’ll continue that this year. In 2022 I’d like to break par on a normal par 72 course. I’ve broken 70 on a couple shorter courses that I would say are easy, but the best I’ve ever shot on a real test is 74. To do this I have got to make more birdies in 2022.
  4. This topic does fascinate me, I never give it that much thought. I’m a 6 handicap and we play from various tees. Sometimes we play from the tips to make the skins game more interesting, and sometimes we play from the regular mens tees to make it more interesting. I would say that you should play whatever makes it fun that day and keeps you in the pace of play range.
  5. I play in a league and it’s one of the best golf decisions I’ve ever made. I don’t know how normal the format is, but there are like 13 of us on a team. I was brought in by another buddy, but I’ve made a ton of friends. And now there is a regular group text where it’s easy to find a 4 some almost any time; weekdays and weekends.
  6. Went in and got fitted with the local fitter today. Tried out the PXG Gen 4, Calloway Rogue ST pro, Taylormade P770, and Mizuno Pro 225. All with various shafts. Learned that what I have been playing shaft wise the last couple years hasn’t been doing me any favors. I now have a set of Mizuno Pro 225s on the way. So excited for the season, even though it is 2-3 months out for me because of winter.
  7. I don't use my 3 wood off the deck much, but that is a symptom of the courses I play. I do use it off the tee when I need to hit a fairway, or when the hole calls for a shorter shot off the tee. Even if it doesn't get a lot of use every round, I couldn't imagine not carrying it.
  8. Every time I purchase a new (or new to me) driver I tell myself "This is the one. I'm going to use this for the next 5+ seasons." Never works out that way. The winters are cold in Iowa so golf-equipment-idus is a real issue, the cure is I spend a lot of time on eBay dreaming of deals on driver heads to try. Seriously though last years purchase is it for a while...
  9. I walk, with a push cart, for two reasons. 1st, it's cheaper; I'd have to play less golf each year if I rode a cart every time. 2nd, the exercise is a nice bonus.
  10. I play the stiff Modus 120 shaft in my irons, but never really considered what was in my wedges. Thinking about trying the Nippon Modus Wedge shaft. I only play 56 and 51 degree wedges. Thinking about playing a stiff in the 51, but playing a regular in the 56. Anyone play this shaft in their wedges and have any feedback? Anyone play a different flex between the wedges? The 56 is rarely used for full shots which is why I am thinking a softer shaft in it.
  11. I always try to sell on FB marketplace first and if it doesn't get any bites, then I put it on eBay. eBay is great because of the massive audience, but it has it's own set of problems. The fees are annoying, they charge them on both the sale and the shipping you charge the buyer, then they bill you for them later instead of just netting it all out at once. Also, eBay is very buyer centric, they offer them a lot of protections. This can be particularly important to pay attention to when selling used golf clubs because condition is subjective. Even if you don't accept returns, eBay will force you to if they buyer claims they didn't receive what was advertised. For example, I sold a Taylormade M2 driver head on eBay, it was my current gamer so I had been using it days before it sold without issue. About a week after delivery the buyer claimed the weight in the weight track wouldn't stay locked in so he claimed "it wasn't as advertised as good working condition". I was able to negotiate with them and resolve it with a discount, but I talked to eBay and they would have forced me to accept the return.
  12. I've always played a lower launch/lower spin shafts in my 3 wood, while playing more of a mid launch in the driver. Currently have the Evenflow Riptide CB in my driver, and I'll be switching it for 2021. It was a good shaft, but I'll likely be going with something that has lower torque.
  13. I'm going in for a fitting to see about getting something new in my driver for 2021. I'm really interested in the Ventus line. Has anyone heard if there is anything new coming from Fujikura that would be an improvement on Ventus?
  14. Looking for a Ventus Blue 6S driver shaft. Preferably with a PXG tip.
  15. Bump. Reduced the price. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  16. I have a Fujikura Pro 2.0 driver shaft for sale. I bought it in March and have only used it maybe 10 rounds. I bought a new driver in June, and went with a different shaft. It has a PXG shaft adapter on it, it is a extra stiff shaft, the exact weight isn't listed on it, but I think it is about 65 grams. It has a new in March Lamkin UTX Midsize grip on it. Looking to get $110 shipped (US Only).
  17. 7 handicap in Waukee, Iowa 50263 Mizuno MP-18 Irons, 8 iron goes about 150 yards After reading about them earlier this year on your website I looked into them to potentially buy a hybrid, driving iron, or 5 wood.
  18. Does anyone have any idea about the spin differences between these shafts? I bought a new PXG 0811x Gen 2 and ordered it with Riptide CB 60 and I had a PXG adapter put on a Fujikura 2.0 60 I had from my old driver. I have a neutral angle of attack, medium transition, SS 108. The riptide definitely feels like it has more play in the shaft. At the driving range they launch almost identically. I know get fit, get on a launch monitor. I might get on a launch monitor at some point, but until then I was curious if anyone had any thoughts. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  20. Tier 1: Rickie Fowler Tier 2: Patrick Reed Tier 3: Zach Johnson Tier 4: Jason Dufner Tier 5: Kevin Na Winning Score: -10 Low AM: +7
  21. I play one of their 3 woods. I'll echo what some others have said; it's a great club with exceptional distance. Sometimes I wonder why I even keep a driver in the bag. Something I don't know if others have mentioned is the lifetime warranty. One day I teed off with the 3 wood and it felt like a mishit, when I leaned over to pick up my tee and used the club to sort of balance myself the shaft broke off right at the hosel. I was bummed, but when I went to the golf shop where I got it to get the shaft replaced, they told me about the lifetime warrantee and took care of it for free, and it wasn't a cheap shaft.
  22. This time of year is the worst. The weather teases some warm days and then throws some cold/snow/rain/ice. It is also when I feel the most urge to spend money on golf equipment. This year I've replaced my 3 hybrid with a Mizuno MP18 Fli Hi 3 iron. I'm excited about this one as I jumped on the hybrid wagon about 3 years ago and have never been comfortable with it, so going back to an iron I think will be good. Also, this year I am retiring the Ping Hoofer bag I've used for the last 17 seasons. We ride a lot these days, and when I walk I use a push cart now; so I've upgraded to a Ping DLX bag this year. Now if this Iowa weather would just cooperate I could stop spending money on equipment and start spending money on greens fees.
  23. Yeah spin can cause a difference in distance. It sounds like you were both hitting different 3 woods (brands and setups) and since it is two different people's swings it would be hard to say that spin was specifically the culprit in your scenario.
  24. I'm about to, but not for any playability reasons. My parents winter in Arizona and I'm taking a trip out there in January. Instead of buying a travel bag and flying with my actual clubs, I sent my parents an old set of my irons that I used to play. It will be interesting to play golf with really low expectations, no woods, and someone else's putter. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
