  1. For the most part, just warm water and a stiff bristle toothbrush, WD-40 is great for removing the occasional sticky sap, just make sure to clean it with soap and water afterwards. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
  2. I would have to agree with you on the specs possibly being wrong, I have a 21-degree dynacraft DI that I assembled for under $30, and to my eye it appears to have a very moderate amount of offset. It's actually a pretty nice hitting club, especially for the price. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
  3. Sounds like a pretty good idea, I definitely need to do something to help push me into making a decision. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
  4. I've been avoiding commenting on this topic, why? Because I've been cheating for months now by carrying 15 clubs in my bag, I dropped the 4 iron years ago in favor of a hybrid, but lately with all the hype about driving irons and GI long irons I decided to buy a low cost driving iron, which worked pretty well, then I decided to buy the matching GI 4 iron for my set, and I hit it about the same as the driving iron, but if I'm really honest, for my age and skill level the hybrid is the best choice, but ego and pride won't allow me to pull the set 4 iron out of the bag, so I've been playing for months with 15 clubs still trying to decide between the long iron or the hybrid, even though I know the hybrid is the right choice for my age and skill level. I still haven't given up on the driving iron either, damn! I'm indecisive. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
  5. Have you considered Cobra irons, even though they are somewhat of a big brand name, they are usually a little less expensive than most other big brands, especially if you're buying last year's models or slightly used clubs. I was able to pickup some barely used F7 irons earlier this year, for $178, shipping included through eBay, and I know Cobra usually has pretty good discounts if you don't want to buy used.

  6. I just saw one in an ad from 2nd Swing Golf for $759, some people will pay a lot of extra money to "get the shaft", of their choice. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
  7. I had considered buying some Acer club heads, but, the .370 hosels wouldn't work with my taper tip shafts, although, I did buy an Acer SHM-2 counter-balanced putter that I really like, it's been in the bag for almost 2 years now. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
  8. Yeah, the sole's a little wide towards the toe, but overall it's a fairly compact club, especially compared to a hybrid. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
  9. I've had some good results with mine, and for less than $40, it's definitely worth a try. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
  10. I did the same thing, my G10 worked really well for me right off the shelf, but like an idiot, I traded it in towards a new AMP cell driver, and it took a few shaft changes for me to get back to where I was with my old G10 driver. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
  11. They could have just named it bogey (bogie), as in, an unidentified flying object. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
  12. This really hits home for me, I have a 2013 Cobra AMP cell driver, I replaced the stock shaft with a prolaunch red, cut to play at 45" and it just seems to work for my swing, I then bought a bio cell plus driver thinking I was going to gain some distance, but that wasn't the case, I believe the spin was just too low for my swing speed and the 3000 foot altitude where I live, so I ended up selling that driver. I also picked up a cobra F6 driver that works pretty well, but not any better than the AMP cell, and I prefer the sound and feel of the AMP cell. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
  13. Does anyone know what shaft length they were using for the testing. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
  14. Not a lefty myself, but my brother is, and lefties do get screwed as far as new club options, but the deals on used clubs are incredible, every time I look for a club on eBay, I find left hanged versions for about half the price. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
  15. Welcome to MGS, and I think you'll find that everybody's pretty nice here. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
  16. Because, in a driven cart, the golf bag and clubs sit vertically, so there's no issue with the iron heads leaning towards the driver and woods, which can scar the graphite shafts, and it puts the long clubs too close to the handle of the push cart. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
  17. Yeah, it does kind of suck trying to put a cart bag on a push cart, it's just one of those things you have to live with, unless you feel like rearranging your clubs every time you walk, I keep my clubs covered, irons included, so I don't have to worry about scarring the graphite shafts. The Ogio silencer bag, as mentioned earlier, is probably the best solution. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
  18. This is a subject I've been thinking about lately, my grips always seem to stay in relatively good shape, while my brothers grips seem to wear out very fast, some of this may be due to the fact that he does not wear a glove, and possibly grip pressure, he's a caresser, and I'm a Strangler.

  19. I assembled a 21-degree Dynacraft driving iron about a month ago, I went with an Apollo aculite 95 steel shaft to match the weight of the rest of my irons, and so far I'm seeing pretty good results, it seems easier to hit than my 4 iron, and easier to work than my hybrids.

  20. I've had a set of DG S300 shafts laying around for awhile, I've been looking for some affordable heads, but, people on eBay want almost as much for just the heads as they want for a shafted set of clubs, and most aftermarket heads are .370 bores, and the S300s that I have are .355 taper tips, looking at the chart it appears that the hosel are universal or dual bore, and I really like the look of these clubs and the fact that the lofts are a little stronger. I'm really going to have to take a hard look at these. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
  21. I feel your pain, I've been playing golf on and off for 20 years and for some reason when I get in a greenside bunker I just tighten up and lose all control and concentration. If I really concentrate and make sure to keep my head down and eye on the ball throughout the swing, I usually do okay, but that's easier said than done. Not sure I can help you with the green side anxiety, I've tried alcohol and Pharmaceuticals, nothing seems to work. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
  22. I actually have three drivers at this time the F6, bio cell plus and AMP cell. I don't really get along with the bio cell plus, so that one's probably going to be sold or traded in, the AMP cell is really consistent and pretty long since reshafting it with a 3/4" shorter prolaunch red shaft, so I think it's pretty safe as my backup for a few more years.

  23. I have owned the 3 wheeler for about 2 years now and haven't had any problems with it, the biggest difference between the caddytek and the much more expensive clicgear is that the caddytek comes with a foot brake and the clicgear has a hand brake. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
  24. I thought my F6 driver was safe, but after seeing the new F8, I'm not so sure about that. I have been considering some new irons, I'm currently switching between amp cells and amp forged, but I think some more distance oriented clubs might help me as I've lost some distance because of back and hip issues.
