    ... The blotching came from an inconsistent submerging. Here it is after a second night in white vinegar. Look much more uniform but still has the sparkle finish that reminds me of a zinc wedge head. I am hoping once I put it in play the natural elements along with some rusting and removal will dull this finish.

    ... Well mroppositeofthin this SM8 is proving to be particularly difficult to strip. Very uneven looking and has a sparkle finish underneath so it looks like Vokey is using a different coating than in the past. SM7 was easy to turn raw. Maybe it will last longer for those that like the black look but it is a b!tch to get to a raw condition.

    It's been a while since I've been able to participate in this thread, but the last couple of weeks have really had me itching for golf.  If you can't play, might as well buy stuff so you're ready right??
    New Groove it brush...

    Then I was lucky enough to snag one of the American Flatsticks/Gibbons Handmade Baby Yoda mallet covers.  Yes I'm going to game it and it looks way better in person.

    Last, but certainly not least.  I finally picked up a Fujikura Ventus Black in 6-S.  Turns out the cheapest way to buy this shaft is to do it as an upgrade on a TM SIM driver, so that came attached to it as well 🙂

    Just picked up these bad boys today, finally closing the 8 degree gap between my PW & GW.

    As for me, I couldn't help myself. Just ordered a pair of these bad boys.

    ... I chose my equipment by performance and pay very little attention to aesthetics. They have to look good to my eye at address of course, but pairing say a green/yellow shaft with some red/white paint fill on the head has never entered into my decision to play anything, if it gives me the numbers and performance I am looking for. That said, I am not immune to something looking cool if it happens to work out that way. So I was pleasantly surprised by how good the Cobra Xtreme with a white alignment aid and white painful accents on the Matt crown looked when paired with a Rogue White 130 shaft that goes from white to the Matt black bottom half.

    ... What a start to 2020. The herniated disc I suffered thru in December set my entire season back. Thankfully some serious PT has me finally back on track but some family issues pushed my winter in Phoenix to Spring in Phoenix. I am not complaining considering some posts I have read here about fellow MGI brethren's troubles because there are always others in much worse shape than you are. I try and live my life being grateful for what I do have, not what I don't have. That said, I hope to be in Phoenix by the middle off March and have a lot of golf and equipment to catch up on. 

    ... First up will be the Cobra Speedzone Xtreme. I thought the F8 was one of the most forgiving drivers Cobra has produced and the F9 was one of the fastest and longest. I would not be "upgrading" to a Speedzone driver in 2020 that would be marginally better than my F9, and maybe not any better at all. But according to some engineers at Cobra, the Speedzone Xtreme just might be a combination of the best of the F8 and F9. I will start with my Tensei Orange but I also have an Aldila White 130 on the way as well as my Atmos Tour Spec Blue. I have to say that judging by pictures I was not too sure about the wrap around milled face coming up on the crown, and thought it might be distracting. But like many photo's, in person it looks very different, especially down on the ground in the address position where it looks very nice. That was a pleasant surprise. After playing it awhile I will post my thoughts and hope to compare it to the Mavrik and ST200 as well.

    I put $100 worth of gift cards to use yesterday and picked up a replacement for the 52 TM first gen milled grind. I wasn’t planning on going Vokey but it was the best of all I tried.

    New here, but have to show off my new toy. 
    Callaway Epic Flash Sub Zero - Mitsubishi Tensei CK White TX at 45".
    I hit multiple drivers and while this one feels like a wood baseball bat when I hit it, I couldn't argue with the numbers. 
    I hit the Mavrik with the same shaft and at 200 balls each over two days (10/10/10) I averaged 1.9mph higher ball speed with the flash than the Mavrik. I think it's because my miss is more on the heel than the toe. Misses on the toe of the Mavrik were longer, while misses on the heel were longer on the flash.

    Roger Dunn gave me $328 for the flash, it was hard to say no. With the credit I had, I paid $130 out of pocket. 
    Tracking down a "real" Ventus to put in it and test, but if I can't get one the stock non velocore Ventus actually felt really nice!
