  1. Yes, I love the feel, and I think the TX will be your shaft. I have never hit them, but like I said, they are a bit softer than the x100. They just feel smooth, the x100 to me felt way more stout (which I don't mind either) but I would never use the word smooth with the x100. When I was fitted, using the Mizuno fitting tool, the Modus never even came up on the recommended shafts for me. The top one was the x100. I picked the Modus because I was used to it I guess. It was in the last set of clubs I had and is in my gamers now.
  2. I was reading through your posts, I have the Modus 120x shafts and I feel as if I have a hard transition too. I was a former baseball player and I absolutely love this shaft. It's a bit softer than what you currently swing (x100) but it's much smoother too. My swing is more like Jon Rahm, not much of a backswing but a lot of torque. The shaft keeps up, no problem.
  3. I kind of feel the same, I would love to see Mizuno or Srixon come out well. I would love to hit these, but there are no places around me that carry either one.
  4. HELL NO. You can put all the tech into a putter but until you change my arms, my shoulders, my feet, my eyes, my brain and decision making skills on the greens it wont matter!
  5. Like many of you, I think it depends on the conditions and where the trouble is and where the pin is on the green. If it's windy, I tend to take the longer club, unless the wind is at my back obviously. If I have trouble left and right and back, but nothing in the front, AND a front pin I don't have any issue taking the lower club and coming up short. I do a lot of bump and run shots around the green so I am pretty confident that if I'm short I will be able to get up and down fairly regularly. The main thing I don't want to do is try to swing slower. Every time I try to do that, I get all out of rhythm and the resulting shots are bad. So when I do take longer club, I usually choke down.
  6. So, what are you looking for in an iron? If it's just weight, you can change shafts and grips to achieve that. I tested the Ping G410 iron a few years ago for MGS and they were very forgiving and felt decent. I compared them to my Mizuno JPX 900 forged irons (which I loved), and they were not too bad. I have to say the feel of the Mizuno was much softer and the head profile is smaller. The Ping offered better off center performance and a larger overall footprint. If you are looking at getting something a few years older to save money I would say look at these two. If I had to choose, I prefer the Mizuno's feel, if I was a higher handicap golfer, I would say Ping. You may want to look at the Mizuno JPX Hotmetals too. Hit as many as you can and go from there.
  7. I play out of Maple Dale Country Club and Wild Quail in Delaware, the good thing about being such a small state is I am close to every course in our state.
  8. Sorry, just now seeing this. If I were you, I would join the course that is closer to you. At 45 minutes away, although the course is nicer you will use it less...especially with a child on the way. Look at it this way, most rounds are lets say 3-4 hours if the course is busy, add on almost two hours in travel time. That means a good portion of your day will be spent at that course. With the one that is only 20 minutes away, that's not too bad, even if you wanted to just hop over and play 9 holes or hit range balls. Your family will appreciate the closer course.
  9. I'm in the same boat, I have the Epic Flash sub zero, but it's about 5 years old now and it has reached the age just like you said. Ball speeds on center hits cannot increase, however, from what I understand, there is room to increase ball speed on off center strikes...not that any of us need that.
  10. So I am in the market for a new driver and thought I wanted the new TSR, watched a video or three regarding the new Callaway Paradym driver and everyone is saying how good it is (more so than the usual Youtube guys hyping drivers). I've not liked Callaway's lineup the past few years but am intrigued with this one. THEN, I saw the Cobra and again, a lot of guys are saying how good it is. Now who the hell knows, I love this time of year and hate it at the same time. Love seeing all the new drivers/tech coming out but can't hit any until the spring. UGH!!!!!
  11. there goes your security deposit. haha Sorry I missed this trip, especially since this is almost my backyard. Have a great round tomorrow boys and play well! love this thread
