  1. The way some of them act now days (entitled little $#!ts) that doesn't sound so ridiculous.. [emoji13] the more I practice, the luckier I seem to get..
  2. It really is refreshing in the world of $500+ drivers who all claim that looks and tech have to = $$$, to see those claims debunked with a driver like this. It really does have the potential to check all of the boxes. Can't wait to follow! the more I practice, the luckier I seem to get..
  3. I'm probably gonna get some rolling eyes.. but you ever hear of Maltby? the more I practice, the luckier I seem to get..
  4. Hey Shanks! Just an FYI if you plan on taking more pics or even videos, you can get very inexpensive 1080p HD cameras on Amazon. Similar to Go Pro's but really inexpensive and just as good IMO. I think I got mine for around $35 and it came with a waterproof housing for rainy days or pool fun. Additionally, I bought a decent case with foam protection and it came with a buttload of cool accessories.. i.e. bendy tri pod, telescoping selfie stick, dash clips, etc, etc, etc for like $15 extra. Takes an SD card that holds like 60GB which is a ton for these golf vids. I actually bought it after we finished the wedge review in case I were picked for other reviews. During that process my phone kept overheating and shutting the camera off so I got tired of that.. 112* weather wasn't helping. There's software that allows you to pick out stills. All pretty user friendly too. the camera itself is totally worth the $ and helps save space on your phone with better videos too.
  5. If they haven't changed their policy, I believe you can do the same with the shafts as well. When I ordered my set, the shaft that I wanted wasn't included in any pack deals.. but because the "cost per" was the same, they gave me the shafts that I wanted at the bundled discount rate. I was then also able to get my preferred grips (PURE Pro's) at a slight up charge of less than 1$ per grip. Golfworks' customer service is pretty top notch when it comes to that stuff. That's extra awesome about being able to bend the club due to the forged body. I'm 6'3" and typically play everything about 2* upright. My Dynacraft has a forged face plate but the body is cast and won't budge so the lie is flatter than I like and an occasional push creeps in from time to time.
  6. Please keep us posted if you end up getting one. When I purchased my Maltby DBM's, they had stopped making the previous KE4 HDI so I opted for the KE4 Tour Hybrid which has been a really awesome hybrid but I've always been a DI fan. I've since purchased a Dynacraft 18* Driving Iron which has also been a beast of a UDI. Paired with a UST Proforce V2 Hybrid shaft it's been a hell of a club. That said, I've always regretted not being able to get the original Maltby HDI so I've had my eye on these but wanted to get more input before I pulled the trigger. I'd probably just swap out the head and use the same UST shaft.
  7. Congrats testers! Dive in head first and make a great experience out of this! the more I practice, the luckier I seem to get..
  8. That's brilliant! Koepka's caddy makes a post on Koepka's favorite golf forum (MGS) under a fake name (Edveed) talking about golfers being wusses.. Koepka reads the post, gets all fired up and wins the Championship.. Caddy gets 10%. Well played sir!
  9. In general. Wanna-be meathead trolls are very weak mentally.. @Edveed the more I practice, the luckier I seem to get..
  10. Totally doable. You could just have the club gripped with a taper reduction to keep at least the top 2-3" relatively the same girth ([emoji38]). This way you won't have to worry about swing weight change and if you find it doesn't work for you you're just out a few bucks for the grip. the more I practice, the luckier I seem to get..
  11. I pledge my allegiance to BBQ sauce the more I practice, the luckier I seem to get..
  12. I've also stated this in other threads.. if you're butt trimming, the flex impact should be the least of your concerns. Be sure and have a good plan for swing weight recalibration as an inch can definitely impact how the club feels and if not done correctly or just misunderstood, it could be perceived that the shaft flex has changed when in reality the swing weight is just too light. Additionally, if you don't have a club with interchangeable weights, you may be forced to add a bunch of lead tape, pay extra for a tip weighting, or have to add a lighter grip that you're not fond of. Be sure and research this piece if you haven't already.. BTW this is all knowledge from costly experience. the more I practice, the luckier I seem to get..
  13. I'm not looking for a fight but your mom's fat and your girlfriend's ugly... Where did you really think this was gonna lead Skippy? the more I practice, the luckier I seem to get..
  14. Oh.. yeah I was one of them [emoji16] I may only be speaking for myself here but I haven't had any issues in the that department with the 2018 wedges. I don't remember any of the other testers having that issue though either. Don't quote me but I believe that everyone from last year is still gaming them. I won't say that toe or heel strikes are a constant for me so maybe my POV is a tad more skewed from the consensus. And if I were to say which strike has potential to creep in from time to time, I'd say toe strikes are more probable. The feedback of stike location is definitely present but loss of yardage or direction, trajectory, etc seem to be minimal and the feel isn't as punishing as others I've hit. I'd like to say it's due to the added mass but obviously Bridgestone has concluded differently. [emoji39] the more I practice, the luckier I seem to get..
  15. Yeah so on last year's wedge, the chunky B logo actually played a performance function as to centralize a good portion of mass to the center to help with feel on off-center hits as well as to keep the club stabilized through impact. I personally think that it made a difference in the sense that off-center shots don't feel as "poorly struck" as other wedges I've used in the past and there seems to be minimal loss of distance and feel. Couldn't find the actual Bridgestone info but this is from the MGS write up from last year "A key design element with the XW-1 is the hexagonal, B-stamped mass behind the impact area, which Bridgestone calls Forged Mass Construction. The Tour B X-Blades and X-CB irons feature the same technology, which is essentially extra mass right at the sweet spot to create a more solid feel."
