  1. Glad you are liking it. I'm on my second set of Srixon irons....19' Z785's w/modus 120's and now ZX7's with same shaft. I LOVE THEM!!!!! Picked up their new driving iron (20* 3 iron) last week and all I can say is wow! I've always struggled with hybrids and never felt "comfortable" as my "have to hit the fairway or green", go to club. And I needed something that I could carry about 215-220 yards to fit between my 4 iron and 5W.

    I now have 4 rounds and several range sessions under my belt with the 3 iron and it is an absolute weapon!!!! I can feather it down the fairway off the tee or I can really stand on it for more distance.....It's just stable, very forgiving and I feel like I'll never miss it left....which, is what I was after!

    Srixon is the MOST under rated club maker in the business in my opinion! It would take a lot to get me out of their irons!

    I guess you should consider yourself lucky because Costco corporate and all the local stores raised the prices on these towards the end of last season and they are $27 + tax for a 4 pack now and you get nothing but the gloves in a plastic mailing envelope, certainly no packaging and no bonus poker chip.  OP is offering these at a reasonable price, especially considering he is paying shipping and paypal fees.

    Hmm….interesting. I’m in FL and have been buying them from my Costco here for a couple years. The last time I was there (a few months ago), they had the 4 packs for $19.99. 

    Anyway, GLWS…..as these truly are fantastic gloves.

  3. I’ve been using the Kirkland gloves exclusively for well over a year. For the money….they are the best gloves on the market. I hit a lot of range balls and play a lot of golf and these gloves will last a long time.

    However, I do have to say it….as I’m sure others are thinking it…..Costco sells these as 3 packs for $15.99 and you get the packaging and poker chip and the 4 pack for $19.99. Just saying….

  4. Hello,

    It was time for new grips, so ordered these PURE grips. Been wanting to give them a shot for a while now after reading all the great reviews. These are new combo/less tapered grip. Blew them on and off with air without grip tape or solvent. As much as I wanted to love them....I didn’t and they’re just too different feeling and lighter than my GP MCC+4’s that I’ve become accustomed too. Grips have 1 round of golf and 1 range visit. You would never know they weren’t new.

    Paid $165 and some change. My loss is your gain and will sell these shipped for $100.

    Cash in NE Fl, PayPal or Venmo accepted.

  5. Hey fellas,

    Anyone know of a putter head cover maker out there that will build one off covers. Just got my Scotty Futura X5 back from being murdered out and wanting a cover as cool as it is.....specifically looking for something in leather and magnetic closure (can’t stand scotty’s Velcro closures).

  6. You pose a very good question, yet difficult question to answer without knowing your putting tendencies; stance, grip, arc or no arc, position of eyes, shoulder turn, no shoulder turn and distance from the ball.

    If your new and high handicapper.....my recommendation would be take lessons from a reputable instructor (full swing and putting lesson). Because.......if your putting sucks now due to one or many of the things listed above and you get fitted for "that" putting style.....you will quickly regret it and have the wrong putter as you progress and begin making a better putting stroke. Example - it's a known fact in the putting instruction world that the line share of golfers are using putters too short for them.

    However, to answer your question.....Edel makes great putters and many people I know have gone through their fitting program and are enjoying their putters.

  7. Why does anyone collect anything? Putters, Cars, Thimbles, Old Radio's!?! To each their own. However, I'd have to speculate that a lot of golfers or proclaimed "Putter Collector's" collection usually begin because of their tireless search for their "magic" stick and they simply start stacking up in the garage. Case in point.....I have a buddy who is a very good single digit golfer. However, he's always tinkering with putters.....I wouldn't be shocked if he has over 12 expensive putters of different shapes and brands.

    For me, I've dabbled in collecting SC putters and accessories. I do it because I like it and I absolutely love the game of golf. A lot of guys have sports memorabilia in the "man" caves or offices.....why not golf related?

    I don't collect run of the mill putters.....but, I own, or have owned multiple Circle T, limited release putters (My girls). If you know the market, know what you are doing, you can actually make a few bucks here or there or at worst break even buying and selling SC putters. I purchased a SC CT 009 putter in 2008 for $1900. Gamed it up until a few years ago and sold it last year for $2500. Not a bad ROI for a used putter. My current gamer is a CT X5 that I'm confident will make a few bucks if I ever decide to sell it. Right now, it's NOT going anywhere. As, putting is one of my strong suits in the game and I absolutely love it!

    I don’t have the Jaws but I assume they are Lamkin UTx grips. I’ve owned many Callaway wedges, all have come with some variety of the Lamkin UTx. I’d check out Lamkins website.

    Lefty is correct....but, the medium blue color is proprietary to the jaws wedges. They will sell them....as, I did so when dealing with Callaway w/a defective set of apex irons. I liked the grip and talked them into a full set so all sticks matched. 
     

    You might try calling Callaway.

  9. Hey Fellas,

    This is a sad and humbling day for me.....I'm offering for sale a nearly new set (my christmas gift from wife) of Miura MC-501's, with Custom white/black Accra ICWT 2.0-95i stiff shafts for sale. Clubs are like new except for a few bag chatter marks (tried my damndest to keep these fresh...short of putting iron covers on). Standard length, standard lofts, 2 degrees upright. New Golf Pride Standard MCC+4's Gray.

    I ordered these 2 weeks before Christmas from a reputable fitter/builder in the Jacksonville, FL area after a fitting and then waited about a month and a half for the custom shafts to arrive from Accra. Custom ferules and all!! These are the best looking set of Irons I've personally ever seen. So.....have had them in the bag for about a month and a half. 

    However, as much as it pains me to say this....I'm just not consistent enough to play these. When my swing is on....these are absolute money and feel like butter! But, these days, my swing is not always where it needs to be. After a miserable showing at a club tourney this past weekend, I've decided to move toward a more forgiving club to compensate for my mistakes.

    If you are looking at these.......you "know" what they cost!! These are the Ferrari's of the golf world.

    SOLD LOCALLY

    I used to work at a course that hosted a TOUR stop and Monday/Tuesday it was VERY common for the Tour Trucks to have 5, 8, even 10 drivers lined up for a player, all with the exact same specs. The pro would hit all of them and then pick the one to put in their bag. I got to talk with the reps a couple times and they said it was pretty simple: there are too many variables to ensure that identical drivers are, in fact, identical and tour pros could tell the difference.

    Granted, that was 18 years ago, but still. Wouldn't surprise me if there was still some truth to this...

    Yep. I’ve heard the same thing from several sources. My replacement head is certainly better than the one replaced. I’ve got 2-9 hole rounds in with the new head. Knocking on wood...but, I’ve hit most of the fairways and drives are definitely longer and dispersion is better! My confidence level is at an all time high with the boom stick.

  11. Just a quick update. Filled out warranty information page on 3/10 regarding my busted SIM. Received email from TM stating they were sending out a replacement head on 3/11 and received new head on 3/18. Fortunately for me, I was on vacation all last week so didn’t miss not having a driver. The best news is I played 9 holes yesterday with the new head and hit 6/7 fairways. All drives were very long and straight. Don’t know what it is, but, this head just feels better and seems to be hotter than the old one.

  12. I was fitted into a set of Accra graphite iron shafts in December and I’m 50 and still swing my driver at 115 mph. I switched because I hit a lot of range balls and was starting to get joint pain in my shoulder, arms and hands (mainly fingers). We hit off the mats a lot at my club (don’t ask me, they can’t seem to keep grass alive on the range).

    If you are properly fit into them.....I don’t think you’ll regret it. Today’s graphite shafts are way better and different than they were 10-20 years ago. Just take a look at the LPGA tour (probably the closest comparison to male amateur golfers in terms of swing speeds, etc)....there’s a LOT of ladies playing graphite iron shafts. They wouldn’t be playing them if steel was “always” better.

    I love mine.....my dispersion and distance (meaning I hit them the actual yardage intended more often) have improved. Can’t beat the feeling when you flush one!

    That stinks man! As far as the signature updating, there are actually 2 spots that you update. I had the same issue and I was apparently updating the wrong one 🤷‍♂️ It’s been a while, so I don’t remember exactly what to do, but check through all the options and you will find it.
