  1. Well, lucky me! What a privilege to test one of Ben Hogan's fairways. Trying to double-check the shaft specs to get fitted right. I'm a 100-105 mph, mid-trajectory, up-tempo swinger. Any recommendations?
  2. Jeff - Southlake TX Right-handed 3 wood, 15* - MRC Tensei CK Blue 70 gram, Stiff UiHi driving iron, 22* - KBS Tour V, Stiff Handicap = 13.4 I currently game a 4-iron and a 5-wood
  3. The Lamkin Z-5's look a lot like GP's MCC grips, but at a better price. I've got their UTx cord grips in my wedges and they've held up nicely, too. I may switch to Lamkins, moving forward, and save a few bucks on re-gripping.
  4. Sub 70 has a good, cost-effective GI option. https://www.golfsub70.com/sub-70-699-iron.html

  6. True story Ben Hogan tested the roundness of his golf balls with an O-ring and spun them in a bathtub with epsom salt for quality control. He was a MacGregor staffer, but refused to play their Tourney ball due to QC issues. Instead, he gamed Titleist and Spalding's Dot.
  7. I couldn't find any of those 3 brands; Maxfli Tour, Vice Pro, or Snell MT-B < $25 dozen. Picking nits, I know but the challenge was finding a premium urethane ball for $23. MG Golf's C4 was the best I could do, price-wise.
  8. MG Golf's C4 is a 4-piece ball I'm tempted to try for only $19.99 per dozen. It's gotten good reviews by our fellow, discerning MGS golfers. Has the MGS staff scrutinized these yet with their testing?
  9. Not to be argumentative, but what "premium" urethane balls can you purchase for $23/dozen? I'd honestly like to know.
  10. I don't know if I'm really good enough to "feel" the difference between a surlyn and urethane cover, but I've always gotten better results from the latter.
  11. I play the 3-piece K-Sigs and have been satisfied with their performance. I'm surprised that today's review was so negative when they were rated "Best Value" just last year. I've never played Cut branded balls, but it's also surprising to read the Snell Red was manufactured in the same Chinese facility. *sigh* Wish I'd have purchased a gross of the original 4-piece K-Sigs
  12. Yes, I'm still gaming my 1999 Apex Plus irons. Looking hard at Hogan's combo set now with a UiHi 4-iron bc it may finally be time to upgrade. What do you like about the Dynamic Gold S-300 shaft vs the KBS Tour V? You and I have similar clubhead speed.
  13. Jeff / Southlake TX 13.4 HDCP Cleveland CG-10 More spin sounds appealing Visually & aesthetically I prefer the satin and black finishes. I'd like to give these a shot, though, to see if the ZipCore technology matches the hype.
  14. All I know is they've forged Patrick Reed's signature blades in a "boxed set" that's limited to 100 available, total. Grindwork's dealers are only on the West Coast. I can't find any pricing, so you'll probably need to call one of their dealers. http://www.grindworks.jp/portfolios/grindworks-x-patrick-reed-limited-pr-101a-forged-irons/ https://www.pgatour.com/equipmentreport/2019/12/12/patrick-reed-mystery-irons-company-revealed-grindworks-equipment.html
  15. Have you received your PTX-Pro 4-iron yet? If so, how does it compare to the UiHi? I'm eager to read how they stack up, because I may pull the trigger on a combo set this year. I'm still gaming my 2000 Ben Hogan Apex Plus irons with Apex S-4 flex shafts, 115 grams, manufactured by Royal Precision. Tyler @ Ben Hogan recommended the KBS-Tour V's, S-flex, for me. I wouldn't mind flighting my mid-irons a little higher, but I like my short-iron trajectories right now. Maybe I should demo an 8-iron in both ICON and PTX-Pro?

  17. Ah...so you work in the golf industry? Nice fringe benefits. I just think BH's reluctance to sell heads only direct-to-consumer is foolish, since they're already doing so with Club Champion as a middle man. Oh, well.
  18. How did you get a set of heads only from Hogan? I've asked, and they declined to sell only the heads.

  21. You should consider getting your Wilson C300 irons refinished if you still like 'em, Tony. There's a guy right there in Ohio that'll makeover your set of 8 for $350. Ken Flanigan at Flanigan Bilt Putters. Check out some of his jobs at his Instagram account - https://www.instagram.com/flaniganbiltgolf/

  23. Interesting I read somewhere that changing a club's lie angle will also affect swing weight. Flatter = heavier. True story?
  24. Are you getting your desired trajectory and spin with your Equalizers on full shots, Sluggo?
