  2. Hey gang, I'm loving all the offseason work I'm doing with my Wilson Staff Milled 8802 and feel really confident that it will be my gamer once this craziness subsides, but am I nuts? It's old school tech and doesn't take advantage of all the new advancements in putter technology. Anyone still trust in these old models? Update: I'm loving the feedback and discussion! I might as well add some pics and background on my 8802. I had it totally standard at 35" and was actually ready to get rid of it. I couldn't generate a consistent stroke and it just didn't have good feel. So I took the grip off and decided to knock an inch off of it. What I found is that Wilson seems to put a long weight plug in the butt of the club. We basically sliced right through it and put the grip back on. The shorter length and the drop in counterweight made all the difference. The stroke got comfortable and the feel came back, it was a very happy accident. I wish I knew why Wilson put such a big counterweight in something with such a small head. Thanks!
  3. Hey MGS crew, It's going on two years with my Shapland golf bag and I'm still in love with it, so I thought I'd make sure everyone else knew in case you're in the market. I will admit that Shapland is run by a family friend and it's the only reason the brand popped up on my radar, but I'm so glad it did. The owner, Henry, is passionate about what he does and he's executing his vision very well. My bag is born from the designs of the old Ping stand bags but with an updated design and stylish fabrics. The leather and canvas are top-notch and haven't faded or changed since I've had it. I even received new straps in the mail 6 months ago because the owner thought the originals needed to be updated (there was nothing wrong with the first set). While the bag has a ton of features and style, it's very lightweight. I even throw this thing on my back and bike to my local nine-holer. Also, he'll have your logo of choice and any other customization added when you order the bag. My next order of business is to pickup his new Sunday Bag!
  4. Nice! That’s awesome man, glad they worked out. I’ll send over the W/S team contract haha
  5. I have to say that I don’t think older shafts are obsolete. I currently game an old Graphite Design G-series in my driver, a discontinued Axivcore fairway wood shaft, an Aldila NV105 shaft in my utility iron, and an Aldila Phenom in my hybrid. They’re all giving me great numbers and I particularly love the feel of the NV105.
  6. I’ve never hit the f5 irons but I’ve heard good things and I love the f5 fairway wood, it’s a quality product line for sure.
  7. 31 year old in tech sales for a startup. Great job for the addicted golfer as I don't have to work a strict 9-5 and can find some time for practice or nine holes during the week.
  8. I know sticking to one brand goes against the MGS way, but I really enjoy it. I'm from Chicago and it's fun celebrating a classic brand based out of my city that really makes great stuff. They lack the credit they deserve and I don't mind the fact that just about all of it can be found at a great price. So here's what I'm working with: Driver: Wilson Cortex 9.5* with Graphite Design G-60 Red X-stiff Fairway: Wilson FG Tour F5 17* with Axivcore Black X-stiff (at 16*) Hybrid: Wilson M3 21* with Aldila Phenom 85 Stiff (at 20*) Utility: Wilson V4 Utility 4 iron with Aldila Green 105S Irons: Wilson FG Tour V6 5-GW, S300 AMT Wedges: Wilson PMP 55, 59 KBS Hi-rev 2.0 Putter: Wilson Staff 8802 milled Next moves: Wilson Staff Model Wedges once I can get them in custom shafts. The stock are too light. I also need the new utility but haven’t been able to test it yet. Also, my bag is from Shapland Bags. They're an up and coming name in the golf industry that everyone needs to check out. Their bags are phenomenal. Let me know what you think! Thanks, Peter
  9. First Name/State: Peter, Illinois Current Driver Shaft: Graphite Design G-60 Red X-stiff Current Driver Swing Speed: 110mph What if anything would you like to improve in regards to your driver shaft..such as more or less spin, better dispersion, more distance..etc.: higher ball speeds/more distance Do you have regular access to a Launch Monitor-- Yes, I hit daily at my local Five Iron Golf and they just installed a bunch of Trackmans in their bays. I have a Trackman account that keeps my numbers logged which is nice for showing them off in a forum.
  10. I like both for completely different reasons, just need to commit to one putter and stroke.
  11. The 8802 is 35" with the classic grip, comes with the red and white stock headcover, 8/10 condition, $85 shipped conus obo.

  13. Peter / Illinois Bettinardi Kuchar Series Model 1 - standard 35" length version 3.4 handicap
  14. Nearly new Wilson D7 Driver for sale with upgraded Tour Spec Atmos Red 6s. Much better than the extra light stock shaft in my opinion. I put this up against my Cortex and it looked better and sounded better. Unfortunately the shaft isn’t strong enough for me. Pick up my loss at a great price! It’s 44.5” length and 10.5 loft. Price is $165 shipped conus
  15. Peter/Illinois 3.6 Wilson PMP 80-100 yards out, hitting a low checking wedge to a back pin
  16. Hoping to quickly sell my Scotty Cameron M1. 34" with the red pistolero grip, 9/10 condition. The headcover is almost new but not meant for this mid mallet putter, works just fine though. $200 shipped conus. Not looking for trades and pretty solid on that price.
