  1. I like them as they fit correctly, large for 8”. I have had problems with the seems blowing out. Of the 4 pack the 1st went about 12 rounds, 2nd didn’t finish 3, 3rd has gone 10 with no issues so far. Failure mode for me have been at the seams. However, they were at different points, inside of index finger and heel, so that suggests manufacturing issues vs a design issue. For $20 they are worth it as I tend to wear down gloves quickly anyways. Although if the 4th lasts less than 10 I may say not worth it. I usually wear out the heel area.
  2. Kevin, Wyoming Mi (weird I know) Cobra AmpCell G & S, Bettinardi Helix 60 58-10full(1st choice), 52-10mid (2nd choice), 62-6low(3rd choice)
  3. The nice thing is you have all the info and you can call a couple local places, or not so local, and see what they will quote for the same set up. While the 790 is on the higher end, that shaft is very reasonable.
  4. I did an iron fitting with Jackson at CC in January. Didn’t have me try a standard shaft either. I went to a local shop (MH) when they had Callaway in for demo day and they fit me in a no up charge shaft (they had the CC suggestion for comparison even). Paid $850 vs $1500 with identical numbers. They do a good job, but they are fans of the shaft up charge and my budget doesn’t support that. Good luck with the search

  6. I saw this probably too late to help. But, I had those you listed and the Maverik Pro which is What I ended up buying. I can’t remember which Mizuno I tried also, I think hot metal tour and the T200’s. hope it went well
  7. I got the CP2 wrap on my new irons (Maverik Pro’s) in January. Liked them so much I put it on my new driver (PXG gen 2 X) and after 2 rounds on the driver extremely happy. Whenever I replace the wedges they will have the CP2 wrap also. After hitting a couple shots with my irons during our indoor league, my friend is getting his irons re-gripped with the CP2’s also.
  8. I replaced my 3&5 wood last year with a Tour Edge CBX t3 at 16.5. Lost about 5 yards off the tee, but it’s great from the fairway. This allowed me to at a 60 wedge to the bag. All around great improvement to my game. I’m somewhat surprised with the x flex. I’m in the 101-103 range with mine and it’s the hzrdus yellow stiff. But, that is the advantage of the fitting and why it is so important. good luck
  9. Well, after a bit of dealing with Fed ex stupidity... It arrived in the crappy cardboard box, with a hole punched in it and bent at a 20 degree angle. basically, the shaft stopped it from bending more. The club itself seems fine, no marks or scratches. Played great also. Just concerned long term as who knows what caused the smashed box. Talked to PXG and told them the shipping was a joke. Got a lot of “Sorry about that” and “we didn’t want to delay any longer”. No offer to refund $30 for shipping or anything like that. Love the club, but as a first time PXG buyer, what a terrible end to the process that really makes me question the possibility of being a repeat customer.
  10. I was a little concerned about my order based on what others have seen. Then on the day it was supposed to begin assembly everything went blank on the tracker, no dates and nothing highlighted. I gave it the weekend, glad I did, as I checked Monday morning and it was in build then shipped today. Hope it was shipped in good packaging. As cool as the box is I’ve seen before, I just want it properly protected in transit. If it arrives by the current estimate it will be in the 4-5 week window I was told when fit.
  11. Was looking for a driver and even did a fitting at Club Champion. Wasn't the best experience. Although, I was fit almost 3 years ago at a different store and also was very unimpressed. Saw PXG was offering the Gen2 for $295 and decided to look into it. I was able to get a fitting last Thursday. The fitting was well done, the comparison to the last two was night and day. One of the big differences between the online fitting vs live is that he had many more shafts to review, and they were almost all no charge. I was fit into an Adila NV Green NXT 65-S, 2nd place was the Tensei Orange ($125 upcharge). As this is a low launch/low spin shaft he moved me to the 10.5 head of the 0811X Gen 2. While my distance improvement was not drastic, 0-5 yards when I hit them both clean, where the big difference was in miss hits. I was not hitting the ball well at the fitting so the dispersion was great for a deciding factor. With the NV and the X head I had a one way miss, left, of about 10-15 yards with a distance loss of around 10 carry and 15 total (on 5 good hits averaged 258 carry 282 total). My current driver (DVD 10.5 Adila Rouge 125 6.0) on good hits is about a 255 carry 275-280 total. But, my miss is both ways 25 yds left or 10 yds right with 25 yards loss to carry and 30 to total. Did I get the massive distance bump, nope. Did I see a massive improvement on miss hits, yeah. And since I don't play as much as I would like I might hit it on the screws every other drive at best the difference is more than enough to have a meaningful impact on my game. If you struggle with too much spin the 0811X Gen 2 was great with the 3 tungsten plugs up front. I dropped to 1800-2000 rpm for clean hits and 2600-2900 for miss hits. My current sits 2600-2800 on clean hits and nearly 4000 on miss hits.
  12. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? Been playing around 40 years, 35 on actual courses. Handicap is around 11. What do you love about golf? It’s all dependent on what you do. No refs, no judges, just you. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? The great reviews and information. I may know some and have no idea Where are you from? What is your home course? Grandville Mi area. Don’t have a home course. Kids are old enough starting to play more often again. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Summer golf is great Winter sucks. What do you do for a living? Engineer How’d you pick your user name? Um, see above. was very disappointed with a driver fitting I had over a year ago. Knew I should get fit, loved the data, after learning more discovered they did a terrible job. Thankfully, they suggested my gamer was worth keeping as for $400 it wasn’t worth the extra 0.3 yards. Used the ping app, discussed on the site to fit myself for a putter last month. Have always played a blade and tempo said go to a mallet. Slight arc. Tried the winner from Dicks. Wasn’t very good with it. Tried ping, odessey, and everything else. At a small local shop saw a evenroll er5 and tried it for laughs as that is way out of my budget ( I’m cheap). Fit perfect and putted great with it that the other people probably thought I was nuts laughing so much. A 34 5/8 would be a proper length for me. I just chocked down a little. Checked the price on the er5 and $150. I asked the guy at the counter if it was mismarked and he said “nope”. It’s in my bag and I will track the changes, hopefully for the better.
