  1. Good evening, I'm looking for a set of Project X Catalyst 100cw shafts in 6.0 (stiff) flex. I am specifically looking for 5-LW but am interested in any sets. Thanks!
  2. Virginia, just turned 40 102mph current swing speed Slightly above average swing speed I have a swing speed meter already and this is an area I want to improve. I would be happy to put in the work to raise my swing speed
  3. San Francisco 49ers - cart bag would be my choice but I understand if I'm disqualified for how terrible my team is playing these days..lol!
  4. Someone is going to get an amazing trip and setup.. Thank you Cleveland Golf and My Golf Spy for the opportunity!! Here's my information and dream setup: 1. Shaun- Midlothian, Virginia 2. handicap: 22 3. Typically stiff flex in all my clubs but I would trust the professional fitting Driver: Launcher HB FW: Launcher HB 3W, Launcher HB 5W Hybrid: Launcher HB 19* Irons: Launcher CBX 5-PW Wedges: CBX 50/54/58 degrees Putter: TFI 2135 Elevado counterbalanced OS grip Ball: I would trust the fitting data on this but I currently like the z-star
  5. Shadow, I do believe it is Japanese script as a fellow golfer who took group lessons with me is Japanese and when he saw them he was intrigued. I believe he said that the symbols meant something like excellence & precision.
  6. Hey kardboard, I can honestly say that I'm not a salesman and not connected in any way with Orka. I'm actually in IT for a small non-profit in the United States. I am a fan of their stuff and if I'm being honest I do like having unique gear that others aren't familiar with. For me, I found these and really like the way they look and perform for me but I wouldn't be foolish enough to tell anyone that they should play them. Find what works for you and play it! (After reading my first post I realized that I was shooting for informative and in my excitement may have come off as a salesman. That definitely was not my point).
  7. All the major manufacturers seem to be coming out with good looking blades..
  8. I also had never heard of them before stumbling upon them and I have to admit that Alex Comben at Orka is one of the main reasons I decided to try them out. Apparently he's a phenomenal fitter who will first readjust your existing clubs back into spec (if they are out) and then have you hit shots. If the Orka line doesn't outperform your existing clubs he doesn't charge you for the time. Unfortunately he's across the pond but I'm trying to meet up with him on his next trip over to the States. I'm anxious to try out the woods and hybrids as the Orka golfers in the UK swear they are amazing as well.
  9. Good morning, I was searching through and didn't see any topics on the Orka range (www.orkagolf.com). I randomly found out about them and have been playing their irons and wedges. Their business model is based around custom building the clubs for the individual and they feel they make the best product out. (Which manufacturer doesn't.. Lol). I'm not sure if these belong in here but they use triple forged and quadruple forged Japanese steel in their irons depending on which model you use. I'm currently playing the triple forged RS3 muscle back irons and a quadruple forged RS10 wedge. What drew me to the brand was the design and look of the irons and once I hit them I was sold. When you find the center it is the most buttery soft feel and sound. If you catch it a little thin or on the toe/heel they give immediate feedback which is what I was looking for. These clubs have standard lofts and perform very well with their spin and launch characteristics. In all openness, I switched from playing Mixuno JPX-850 forged irons to these and the thing I was missing the most with the Mizunos was the feedback when I didn't find the center. I was afraid my game was not quite good enough for these irons but I've been pleasantly surprised. (If I had gone with the RS1 blades I would probably be struggling!) I want to move into a mixed set of the quadruple forged RS10mb muscle back blades and the RS10cb pro cavity back irons. In any case, they have been winning awards and growing in Europe but the frustrating thing is that no major US distributor has started carrying them yet so you have to order them from Europe which adds to the cost. I am loving these irons and have a demo club in each of the RS10CB, RS10MB, and RS1 lines. The manager sent them over with my clubs to get them in more golfers hands so anyone in the Virginia area is welcome to try them. I had the demo clubs built with stiff flex shafts that were +1" longer and with midsize grips. That way taller players could try them and standard players could grip down as well. Has anyone else had experience with these?
  10. I hope the above posters are correct and that this is a myth as they make some nice irons!
  11. I actually drop my 3 wood for some courses and put a Bertha mini 1.5 (essentially a 2 wood) in my bag. I use it off the tee for when I need more accurate drives and play my 2 hybrid off the deck. 3 Wood off the deck is always an adventure for me!
  12. I was contemplating the same launch monitors and read everything I could about them and watched every review I could find. I was able to try them out as a local instructor had the ES14 and borrowed the SC100. They both gave similar information but I was wowed when I tried the Skytrak. I realized I was better off saving for it as I could hit into a net using it paired to an iPad and save money on range fees. Then one day I can use it for a full indoor simulator setup. I saw it as the better investment for my needs
