  1. Allen/Abilene, TX I currently use a range finder and GPS My current LRF is a Callaway 200

    Ball change

    I like a higher spinning ball...doesn't matter if it is wet or dry. The only time I don't really like the spin is hitting into the wind when it balloons on me.
  3. Allen Abilene, TX SS - 100 Currently playing Chrome Soft X Triple Track The only experience I've had with Snell was a ball I found. I liked it, but the water liked it more!
  4. Allen/Texas 4.8/102 Chrome Soft X 19 Yes, I have previously played both balls
  5. I do mine in a vise clamped to my workbench. It works, but it is not the best. I would love to have this kind of setup...I would probably end up changing grips once a month though!
  6. - Allen - Texas - Artisan Golf 0217 - Strength. It's what keeps the rest of my game together.
  7. @blcurreyI did the Mizuno shaft fit analyzer and was impressed. Two of the shafts it came up with are ones I've been fitted for before, so I think the thing works pretty well.
  8. We had a Mizuno demo day at our club a couple of weeks back. I tried the 190 and got good numbers with it. I got fit into a Tensei Orange shaft. It came in last week and I've been able to hit it at the range a couple of times. I like that I can hit it hard without worrying about it hooking.
  9. Pick the prettiest and go with them. You could go with any of them and be fine. The two shafts I get fit into most often are the C-Tapers and the KBS Tour V, so they must be close. Seriously, pick the clubs that you think will give you the most confidence and go play them. Hitting your choices outside at a demo day would let you see what the ball flight actually looks like.
  10. We have one in town that is a fun little course that is lit. It is great fun to go out there for a quick 9, but they have really let it go down hill over the last 5 years and its become a bit of a dog track. I would like to buy it and replace the grass greens with high quality artificial turf and the same for the tee boxes. I think that would cut the maintenance cost considerably and the condition will always be great.
  11. I would want the HMT so I could tell what the head was doing to cause the ball to do what its doing. However, I would not let that stop me from getting the GC...as long as it has the option to upgrade to HMT later. Then I would start saving my pennies for the HMT. The stickers are just the cost of doing business...a little inconvenience and a little money.
  12. Here's an article from Golf Digest that compares ball spin rates. Wedge Spin Rates Of course, nothing is exact, but you can see there are quite a few more balls that have considerably more spin than an e6.
  13. I don't use the line. I find that it doesn't look lined up once I stand over the ball. I know it is lined up from behind, but standing over the ball it doesn't. Leads to a lack of confidence. I much prefer to look down at nothing but white on the ball..no line, no logo, no number...just ball.
  14. A couple of weeks ago, I did a fitting with Artisan Golf. It was worth it. I cannot begin to count the number of putts I hit that day. We used every putter head model, every sight line and changed the weights 100 times. I play left handed and I'm right eye dominant...I learned I need the alignment mark on the top of the putter as opposed to the bottom flange. With a heavier overall weight, my distance control is much improved. With extra weight in the grip, again I had much better distance control. If you get a good fitting, you will get a putter that fits you in length, loft, lie, weight, style, alignment aid, and finish. I have always been a good putter, but I can always get better. By having a putter I know is fit correctly, I take out any doubt about the tool and will putt with more confidence.
  15. I am in the market for a launch monitor that costs in the $500 range. The SC300 is intriguing because of the apex calculation. I think gapping and practicing hitting a certain distance are the biggest uses for one of these. I'd also like to take a look at the Garmin S80...
  16. Allen from west Texas 4.5 HDCP...SS of 102 Epic SZ with HZRDUS Yellow I think the Epic Flash fits me better than the SZ...but would be willing to test either.

    Made where?

    Callaway makes their Chrome Soft and ERC in their plant in Chikopee MA...I don't know where the rest of their balls are made. Years back when I quit playing Titleist, I looked for a US made ball. Callway was made in the USA so I gave them a try...been with them ever since.
  18. I hope they show up in my local shop soon. I'd like to give them a try.
  19. I am always concerned about getting fake shafts from places I don't know...like Ebay. I have found Callaway Pre Owned to be a great place to get shafts....especially when they're running a sale of 30-40% off.
  20. 1. Stump 2. Sun Mountain Monsoon 3. Worst? While we were deployed to Guam, a typhoon skirted the island so we thought it would be a good idea to go out and play in it. What a dumb idea. The rain was coming straight down, sideways and straight up...all at the same time! Realistically for me the worst rain is the kind that comes and goes. You have a choice, put the gear on when it's raining then take it off when it stops...which is a pain. Or you can put it on and leave it on...which can be a pain if the pants aren't that good.
  21. Nope. Not a word. The Callaway Community doesn't have any rumors either.
  22. Walking is good for the soul...it lets you experience golf instead of rushing to play shots...I walk when I can and always play better.
