  1. I picked up a box of the Tour “seasonal” opener pack (3 dozen) at PGA Superstore couple weeks ago for $22 per dozen. Been playing them for a few weeks against the Titleist AVX and new Bridgestone Tour BX. I like this ball a LOT! It’s very long and has all the spin I need. It feels much softer than the Tour BX (feel is what I didn’t like in the White box testing). I like the ball so much, I’ve gone back to PGASS to pick up 2 more packs.
  2. I'll concur with Tsecor. I've been playing and really liking the Titleist AVX. I was also one of the Bridgestone Ball testers and tested the Tour B X (which I didn't like because it's so hard). Picked up a box of the Srixon Q Star Tour balls last week and played it against the AVX and the Tour BX. The Srixon feels great and just as long or longer (for me) than the Tour BX. I like it so much that I went back for 2 more boxes of Srixon's 2 for 1 deal.
  3. Any interest in this out there? Make me an offer.
  4. Smoke just out performed it in every way for me. Longer, straighter and tighter dispersion.
  5. Good point and sorry bout that. Yes, I tested the "real" Ventus shafts. I tried the blue 6-7S & 6-7X. I really wanted to love them.....just wasn't getting the perform out of them that I got with the Smoke Green.
  6. After finding and going through a quality Driver fitting (The Performance Center at Sawgrass - Josh Gumlia), I would argue you can't afford NOT to do a driver fitting. Here's what I mean......I can't tell you how many off the rack clubs I've purchased over the years (LOTS of $$) that absolutely wasn't right for me (wasted $). This is what the manufacturers count on! Today, I'm playing my best golf ever with fitted clubs and vowed NEVER to buy another club off the rack that I know I'll abandon shortly after buying.....BECAUSE it's not right for me! I'd recommend doing a proper fitting. Once you know what you want, search the golf forums and Market place for what you need and buy used. There's a lot of great used stuff out there! I'd even tell the fitter that you want to try several 18-19' model shafts. You can usually find 1-3 year old shafts online cheap. I've got one for sale in the classifieds here now for less than 1/2 what it cost new. Here's another option.....find a used head you like: TM M2 (Still one of the greatest heads ever made), M5 or M6. Take that head to the fitting and find a shaft that works for you. I would think you could be all in around $500 or less. I've seen 2 M2's on local FB Market place in the last week for $100. Just my opinion. Good luck in your search.
  7. Little back story first. Went through a driver fitting at The Performance Center at Sawgrass about 1 1/2 years ago (prior to Ventus launch) and ended up with a TM M6, 10.5 with Tensei Orange 60g, stiff shaft.. SS was right at 100. A year later and much stronger (14 months in the gym), my M6 blew up. Went back to The Performance Center to test all the new drivers and hit the Ventus. I really wanted the Ventus, hit several shafts in the SIM Max and it just didn't fit my swing. Ended up with SIM Max 9.0 w/Hzrdous Smoke Green, 70g shaft. SS now 109. Played my first full round with it Sunday and had a phenomenal driving day!! Love this new driver!
  8. Hey fellas - been listening to you guys on iHeart Radio app. My last episode aired on Jan. 31st. Assumed maybe you guys were taking some time off with all the testing. Are you no longer on iHeart Radio?
  9. This has been sold. Thanks Jerry
  10. Fellas, I’ve taken my fitness to a new level over the past 14 months. Was fitted for this shaft at The Performance Center at Sawgrass. My swing speed is up 9 mph and ended up in a different shaft during my latest driver fitting. This is the Tensei, Orange, Stiff Shaft, 60g w/TaylorMade adapter. Has a like new, GP MCC+4 Red/black grip. $100 shipped to your door. Prefer Venmo.
  11. Hey fellas, Got these for my birthday or Christmas (can’t remember now)....used them a few times.My swing speed is right where I want it right now. If you are looking at these, you know what they cost. I’ll also through the Stability Pad in (additional $49.99). You get all 3 sticks and pad shipped to your door for $125. I’d prefer Venmo....but, we can talk about other options for serious buyers.
  12. No. It’s actually called “The Scramble Stick”. You can pick up a golf ball without leaning out of the cart Played in tourney recently who had one. I’ve got to admit, it was pretty handy using it to grab his drives on the way to mine!
  13. LOL. Not sure about everyone else, as I’m a transplant from Oklahoma. Been here 2 1/2 years.
  14. Hey fellas, Pretty happy with the current setup....so decided to participate.

  15. Picked up my new SIM Max, 9* head w/Hzrdous Smoke, Green, 70g shaft last week. Played my first full round with it yesterday. I love this thing. Had my best driver day in a long time. Shaft and head combo just works for me. Long and straight. Also put the SIM 3w & 5w titanium heads with Diamana 75g shafts. Loving everything about them! Coming from a TM M2, followed by a M6....I can say the SIM Max has a different feel and sound, which suits my eye and ear perfectly.
  16. Hey Fellas, Selling a like new "Navigator" by Dirty Larry Golf. These are $49.99 + shipping and tax. First $20 gets it shipped to your door. Thanks,
  17. I’d definitely recommend you hit the Srixon z785’s. Absolutely love mine!
  18. Buddy of mine uses it and loves it. He's a good golfer (4 handicap) and he sinks a lot of putts with it.
  19. Is anyone remotely interested in these? I'm in a mood to get these gone. They're awesome irons and shafts. Make me a offer.
  20. Selling a combo set of ‘19 Callaway Apex irons with Steelfiber I95 Stiff Shafts. A-8 irons are Apex Pro’s and 7-4 irons are Apex. All irons have the new Lamkin blue grips that come only on the Jaws wedges (you can’t buy this in stores yet). Set comes with 4 extra grips, and 4 Callaway hats. All irons are standard length, loft and lie. All gaps were adjusted by The Performance Center at TPC. These irons were in the bag for 3 months and are in excellent condition. This combo set retails for $1880 (minus hats and extra grips). I'll take $900. PM here. I'll take check (item will ship once check clears), paypal (friend or fees), venmo or cash. Live in NE FL.
  21. Hey buddy. I’ve got a brand new (still in the wrapper M6 10.5 head I’d sell). I know it’s not a 9*....but it could be turned down to 9.5 or so. I’d let it go for $225. Let me know if interested and I can send pictures. 

  22. Who knows.....I'm definitely not a machine and like most of us...can hit loose shots. However, I'm not a hack and typically pretty good off the tee with Driver and 3Wood. However, I will say this......My TM M6 blew up last week. Expecting my replacement this week and will retest. Doesn't change the fact that I don't like how hard it feels!
