  1. How you use a 3w makes a big difference. I had a 3&5 and ditched them both and went to a tour edge 4w. Was much easier to get airborne off the deck and worked well off the tee also just gave up about 10 yds with similar club head speed to what you had stated and added a lob wedge. I had bought “last years model” so paid $125 instead of $250. I did get fit for it so that added $75. But still less than any of the just released. Then either a hybrid or a 7w depending on gapping, ball flight, course(s) you usually play.
  2. Last year I ditched my 3 (15) and 5 (18) woods and replaced them with a 4w at 16.5. I struggled with the 3w off the deck and wanted a lob wedge in my bag. Got fitted for the 4w, big difference right there, probably lost 5-10 yds off the tee. But, gained 10 carry off the deck while total distance was only 5 yds less. I have a bigger gap between driver and 4w but the rest of the bag was able to tighten up which helped my scores and that is more important than losing some yards.
  3. My opinion only! I think the problem Bryson has when he talks to the media is that the people he hangs around with talk like he does. So most people feel he is talking down to them. I’ve been accused by many people of this (including my wife) and have spent the last 20 years trying to be more cognizant of it. My crew growing up went 2 mechanical engineers, masters in chemistry, pharmacy with Dr in nuclear pharmacy, and the last got into med school before deciding he wanted no part of that. Bryson has a degree in physics and from all appearances is a total nerd. Most of us nerds, hu
  4. 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.

  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. 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 ($12
