  2. 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.
  3. 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,
  4. I’d definitely recommend you hit the Srixon z785’s. Absolutely love mine!
  5. Buddy of mine uses it and loves it. He's a good golfer (4 handicap) and he sinks a lot of putts with it.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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. 

  9. 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!
  10. Haven't hit it on any monitors.....my statement is purely based on feel and sight. It definitely feels hard and clicky to me. Dispersion is definitely not as tight for me and my swing, as I'm usually seeing more curve off Driver and 3Wood. Distances have been between +/- 5 yards of my AVX.
  11. I would definitely take a look at the Steelfiber shafts. Plenty of stability and feel is awesome.
  12. Makes sense to me........I'm one of the white box testers selected here and was fitted for the Tour BX. I don't like it at all. Feels very hard and clicky and is very spinny off the driver!
  13. This is obviously a reaction to the "Direct to Consumer" ball market and it's proof the impact is real and painful. What makes no sense to me is why they waited so long to respond and why they went through all this trouble. To me.....it would have been simple. Sell their "real" balls for $10-15 cheaper per box. Don't know their markup....but would be shocked if it's not huge. Personally, I think they waited too long to respond and most of the customers they've lost will not come back for a ball named "Union Green"!! Lastly, who in the hell named this?
  14. Dale/Florida Tensei CK Series 60, Flex S 109 Better Dispersion and little less spin Don’t have regular launch monitor access, but can access via TPC Performance Center
  15. Great looking setup. Just put the Z785's in my bag as well. Great irons!!

    Your ball?

    Like most of you....I've tried about every ball out there...either because I bought some or found them on my course (lots of old rich guys playing premium balls). Put the Snell Black in play about a year ago and really enjoyed it....great ball for the money.....AND....I hate paying $50 for a box of balls!!! However, I prefer buying products made in the good ole USofA when I can.........so, back in October of 2019 purchased a box of the Titleist AVX balls (close to Snell price point). Absolutely love it and it's really helped my game. I'm a high ball, high spin player, so this ball really helped bring the ball flight down a bit and I've had no issues stopping it on the greens. Unless the new Bridgestone outperforms it....I don't see myself switching anytime soon (fyi - I'm one of the selected testers of the Bridgestone prototype balls).
  17. Put the AVX (first gen) into play a few months ago.......absolutely love it. I haven't had any issues getting it to stop on greens with any iron. Also enjoy the lower, penetrating ball flight over the Pro V1 and other premium balls. Can't wait to try the new one out. Longer and softer is always a good thing!
  18. I like the way the left the club face stainless and rest of club is black. I’ve always loved the black look....but, they look like crap after a few rounds. This might be their answer to that problem!! Good looking club.
  19. Sold these locally.
  20. Bridgestone Tour BX Prototype First Impressions Sorry fellas - I did this a bit backasswards....but, here's Stage 1 - First Impressions Hello everyone and thank you Bridgestone and MyGolfSpy for selecting me to test the new Tour BX golf balls. Really loved the look and feel of this ball right out of the box. It's hard to explain, but it just looks and feels good and expensive! I was born and raised in Tulsa, OK and moved to NE Florida in August of 2017. I live and play golf in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, just a short drive from TPC Sawgrass. I turn 50 years old this July and will finally be eligible for the Champions Tour (just kidding…but, can qualify for some of the old man tourneys at my local club). Picked up my first golf clubs (garage sale Ping knockoffs) at 19 years old and instantly fell in love with the game. Can’t really put a finger on why I instantly fell in love with the game, as I was the only member of my family who plays. I’ve always been drawn to a challenge, so I guess that’s it….because who really conquers this crazy game called golf? Well….Tiger and Jack!?! Maybe. After 22 years being self employed, I’m finally at a stage of life where I get to play a couple times per week and practice a lot. Took a few years off golf dealing with and ultimately healing from a complete replacement of my right hip. Prior to the surgery, I was playing to a 7 handicap. Post surgery and 3 years later, I started my 2019 season as a 13 handicap. My current handicap is 5.8 on a tight private golf course in the middle of a marsh. Finding fairways and greens is at a premium here! My strengths are short game and iron play. As my golfing buddies would say, “he chips and putts like a scratch golfer”. On those rare days when the golf gods are smiling down upon me and tempo is right, I can play really good golf. Don’t know why, but I’ve always hit all my clubs fairly long and high (7 iron averages 173 yards). I need a golf ball with a penetrating flight, low spin, that is responsive and feels good. Most of my misses occur off my Driver and gap wedges, where I have the tendency to get the club stuck behind me a bit, which results in a block or pushed ball that flies very straight but right of my target line. If this ball can carry as long or longer than my current gamer (Titleist AVX), spins low off the driver and finds more fairways, it will definitely find it’s way into my bag!
  21. Good morning fellas, If you're reading this....you know this "test" got off to a late start. Had a chance to get out for a bit last weekend to perform some of my own "non-scientific" test comparisons. First, my prototype ball was stated by Bridgestones VFIT technology (see link below). FYI - had a couple buddies submit videos and their results, like mine, were pretty spot on and impressive. regardless outcome of the prototype ball. So......what do you guys want to know about this ball? What type of shots do you want to see? Is there a certain ball you'd like to see this compared to? I'll do my best! Video fitting: VFit https://www.bridgestonegolf.com/en-us/find-my-ball/video-get-fit I've tested and played several balls over the past few years. Such as, Snell Black, Titleist Pro V1X, TM TP5, Callaway and am currently gaming the new Titleist AVX (which I love). Initial impressions were very good with this ball. As stated by other testers, it feels "tackier" than other balls I've handled. No visible blemishes whatsoever and markings were perfect. I spent an hour or so testing the ball on the chipping green and putting green. All comparisons were made against my current ball, Titleist AVX. I did play 9 holes with the Tour BX against the AVS (more on this in my final review). Had an unusually windy day for NE Florida. First few drives with the Tour BX indicated that it is a very "spinney" ball, which is NOT a good thing for me, as I typically launch ball on the higher end of the spectrum and never had a problem stopping balls on greens. The Titleist AVS was a few yards longer on most driver holes...but, not by much. Test Clubs: Chip Shots: (tight bermuda lies) Ball felt very good coming off of my 54 Jaws wedge. Soft, yet powerful and in control. Personally, I don't like hard or clicky feeling balls (Srixon, Snell MTB X). I noticed very quickly that the Tour BX spun and stopped quicker than my Titleist AVX balls. Still on the fence as to whether or not this is a good thing!?! I typically like to hit pitches that run out about the same distance it flies. Chipping Videos: (2nd video - made 3 out of 6 chips) Putting: (Made 4 out of 6 putts @ 20') Putting.....well, short of putting with a Pinnacle distance vs ProV1....what's there to test? Seriously? The putter is not traveling fast enough or compressing the ball enough to truly prefer one ball over the next. For me, I want a ball that provides the sound I'm looking for, that will start on my line and not "launch" off my putter head like a rocket. With that said, the Tour BX felt very good. Softer feel and very responsive.
  22. Hello Fellas, Purchased this driver a few months ago during a demo day at my club. Always loved Ping drivers and this one was flying exceptionally well for me that day! Anyway, I’ve gone back to my “fitted” M6 driver for better dispersion. Been thinking about sticking a Ventus shaft in this and keeping it...but, reality is I’m smashing my M6 right now....so, seeing if anyone else wants this. If anyone has a blue Ventus 6 or 7s with Ping adaptor for sell....let me know. I could easily be convinced to keep this. 9 degree head with Alta CB stiff shaft. Shaft is 1/2” shorter than stock. I’ll do $325 shipped to your door. Gamed it approximately 6 rounds and a few range sessions. Other than face wear.....the rest of the club is perfect. Head cover is new and never gamed.

    Selling a pair of Scratch Wedges, 56 & 60. Both have Project X 5.5 Shafts. Lots of spin left in these incredible wedges. Both have my nickname “Choppy” stamped and 1 has my initials. Take $100 for both shipped to your door.
  24. I can speak to this Driver. Been gaming a M6 for little over a year with Tensei shaft. Was at my fitter last week for a wedge fitting. He had the Sim Max on his desk. Long story short....It's been in my bag mated to a "real" Ventus Blue Shaft (not the stock shaft) and I've hit it quite a bit. First, don't care what the bottom looks like....because I can't see it at address. Second, the new color scheme is sick and I really like it. Can't say it's a LOT better than the M6 or that it'll make anyone longer off the tee....what I can say is that it has a different feel and sound when hit and I'm getting more carry over the M6. Haven't done significant testing driver vs driver because course has been really wet and haven't had the time. I can say....if your in the market for a new driver....you should test drive it. It appears to be the real deal. Lastly, if you're one of those guys that just likes the "new" stuff and can afford it...knock yourself out and buy it. Don't think there'll be any buyers remorse on this one. This one will more than likely remain in my bag. Anyone in the market for a nice M6?
  25. My home track is not a “long” course, but is very tight with lots of water and waste areas.....I have a TM M6 3W that I love. It’s arguably my favorite club in the bag. Hit it off the tee about 75% of the time. I’m usually a tee or two back from my playing partners and I out drive my group 95% of the time.
