  1. Great looking bag. Thanks for sharing.
  2. Really great looking bag. What swing speed training thingy is that in your bag? Homemade or bought?
  3. I love the ''keep-your-ego-in-check'' golf setup and explanation of the golf course strategy. It reminds me of Youtuber Golfsidekick. I hope to see that Broke 80 badge real soon.
  4. I posed similar question a while ago and got pretty good answers. Link to the thread: My advice would be that if you want to see noticable change in ball flight don't focus on single setting but deal with the problem with combining advantageous settings. If you want to eliminate or reduce right miss combine upright lie with higher loft (which usually slightly closes the face plus higher spin stabilizes the ball and slightly softens the curve), if possible adjust movable weight to the heel side of the driver, perhaps try different profile of the shaft to get some more forward deflection of the club head and closing of the face this way. Please note that if you are severely out-to-in and struggle with face control those settings won't do much for you and you have to address the swing flaws. I speak from personal experience. Hope this helps.
  5. Nice sticks and pictures. Would you mind explaining what in why is in the bag?
  6. The price is way better but I think it is fair to say Nippon N.S. Pro 1050 GH and 1150GH shafts are noticably different, hence they may not produce the same result.
  7. Same here. I heard Club Champion likes to put some ''extra sauce'' on the price tag.
  8. YES! That's the spirit!
  9. Both. For example 6 iron total distance last year was 160m (pretty much all carry because the course is usually soft and balls stop at landing). Yesterday I hit pretty good 6 iron into the green from 140m all carry and app. 0,5 m of rool out. GPS measurements. Height was never my problem. I estimate the flight is a bit lower but I guess that could be the result of a poor strike. Good strikes fly about the same. Thanks for the advice about checking the specs. It certainly would not hurt to double chech the specs. I bought the irons from eBay about 2 years ago and immediately had them checked. They were anywhere from standard lie angle in PW to 3* flat in 5 iron. Lofts were spot on. I had them all bent to 1* flat and recently from that position to 1* upright. To the ''club bender'' I ordered specific lie angles and not just 2* up for every club. I was thinking about power leaks from ''glancing blow'' - perhaps being out to in (from video analysis my over the top move was quite apparent at the beginning of the season but I successfully ''recalibrated'' myself), with open face but the toe up face would neutralize the ball flight. I agree that GC Quad would be the best tool to analyze what is going on but unfortunately the closest one to me is more than 3 hour roadtrip away plus closed for the summer. Not really an option. Thanks for the advice.
  10. I need a little input from MGS members. After seeing TXG video about lie board and lie angles of irons and after doing some additional research I decided a couple of months ago to have lie angle of my irons bent from 1* flat to 1* upright. Reason for this was mainly the flight as I was seeing LOTS of pushes on the golf course and range (possibly due to the occasional poor face control) plus static measurements of my height and arm reach suggested that the lie angle of my irons should be 1-2* upright. Also before bending the irons they seemed to sit not on the heel portion of the sole but on the middle or slightly towards the toe portion. It is worth also mentioning I have no access to a lauch monitor to measure dynamic lie angle so I was forced to ''guesstimate'' the numbers. The irons were fine and sat beautifully until I took them to the course. I noticed I lost at least 15 meters of distance with the irons (whereas distance with the woods and hybrids remained pretty much the same) and having serious problems with ball striking especially (but not exclusively) in the long irons which was not the case the previous season. At first I thought it must be my post-pandemic slower than usual swing and I need to work on it. After about 10 rounds on the course, 8 hours on the range with the video and one hour with a pro nothing changed. Direction of the flight is usually nice at the target (with occasional 2 meter pull) but when I was messing around with my posture at address I noticed my ball striking and distance significantly improved if I stood more upright. Also I have some contradictory feedback about the dynamic lie angle. ''Sharpie line on the ball test'' says that the dynamic lie angle is perfectly flat (the line on the club face is completely vertical with no tilt) but when when I look at the compressed plastic residue from range mats on the club soles I notice the material from the mat reaches way further towards the heel than the toe section of the sole. I will post some pictures when I get home from today's range session. Has anyone else experienced such dramatic change in ball striking with just 2* of change in lie angle in their irons? I am thinking of bending the irons back to 1* flat or at least standard lie angle. I am curious about the MGS member's thoughts on the matter. >>sorry for the long post<<
  11. Regular with 105+ mph swing? I have heard that shaft flexes are not universal and sometimes one company's stiff is other company's regular etc. I have also heard that long drive guys often choose stiff shafts despite the fact they are well into TX territory but I don't think that is relevant for mere mortals like us. At least without expert analysis and advice. I am not saying that regular shaft couldn't work for you but it sounds to me that choosing softer flex tries to manage the timing of the shaft. Now, whereas I would (kind of) trust well established fitter's such recommendation after the fitting, I certanly would not trust computer program to asses this kind of thing (especially if it relies on my assesments of my swing). Just my 0,02 USD.
  12. They are also on Cleveland official website: https://www.clevelandgolf.com/us/wedges-/rtx-zipcore-tour-satin-wedge/MRTXZCTS.html
  13. I hope Ping will name its driver G420 and offer Mary Jane green color scheme. Stoners rejoice!
  14. Thinking of going to a bit more friendly setup with replacing 50* Cleveland RTX-3 wedge with Srixon Z565 set 50* gap wedge and for certain occasions (wet weather with muddy fairways) use Titleist 818 H1 21* hybrid set at 22* or 23* instead of 4 iron and Titleist 818 H1 19* hybrid instead of 3 iron to get some additional carry instead of roll out. I also tested Tensei White 90g hybrid shaft in hybrid and I quite like slightly heavier combo. Any thoughts about this setup?
