  1. Okay major update... I know I missed the upload but with a baby on the way it takes priority... plus it is headed for 0 deg for the next 10 days here in Fort Worth which makes it darn near impossible to build a golf club... how ever while I am waiting on a few things I’ll be able to attests get the looks part done.
  2. First update on wedges comes down tomorrow. Still waiting on the srixon zx7 head.
  3. First thank you to @Popeye64 for hooking me up with a maltby 7i and a brand new wedge. please help me tag people who want to follow this that I am missing @Chip Strokes @dlow206 @Hotdocta @Popeye64 This has been a long time coming, but because of covid it took a long time to get a few single modus 125 wedge shaft and a few single modus 120TX 7i shaft so the playing field is as even as possible. I will be using fully built clubs and not club connex to give everything the fairest chance. this will be broken down into 2 categories. Wedge and Iron. And of course this is subjective t
  4. Things are coming along will open a thread in the next few days
  5. I have no clue on this but count me in! @STUDque maybe we can make a trade happen this time if you can do that!
  6. G425 preorders start today man
  7. When you go to a wedding on New Year’s Eve and the venue tells you the golf simulator is closed.......
  8. You have an auto flex yet?
  9. Glad to hear you are alright! Check your DM you inspired me!

    Autoflex Shaft

    100% agree except for the rare course where a longer tee shot can hinder you. Not many of those though. Of course you do get the rare course that is both long and punishing like the blessing in Arkansas... but that is where better ball strikers who lack distance can prevail... If you start crushing it past me can we spray paint the club head to match bubbas?
  11. Stock offerings are built for curb appeal. That’s why people end up talking about what the bottom of a driver looks like because it’s the first thing you see... it’s why all murdered out edition clubs come out... not just in golf people always stretch for something that is above of them which is natural to want better things. Golf however unlike anything else is the only static based sport besides bowling I think. Meaning the ball is not moving until you make it move. All other sports are dynamically based in the sense you are trying to predict and react not think things through. All this is i

    Autoflex Shaft

    Both scores are very respectable in their own rights, but if you want to score low proximity to the hole is key. I am glad you are looking forward to it. In the ping head people may mistake your diver for Bubba’s
  13. @BNewton51 golf has changed a lot there is really not any margin in OEM clubs off the rack anymore. Maybe if you’re lucky 10%. OEM have begun to use performance based credits to backend subsidize a companies p&l based on volume. Good shops will pass that on to its customers which creates loyalty. Fitters also don’t get paid for their time at places like CC and others, they make a commission of the sale which encourages them to do crazy things like swap out OEM stock offerings for similar non stock items. SST pure on your putter crazy margin stacked build fees. Even crazy expensive upcharge
  14. Side note fitting carts are not free. EOL stands for end of life. These are usually supported at times by OEM’s to get them out of inventory. This is an opportunity to push for better deals. Well said @Apolloshowl this has gone a tad sideways. At least 2020 is almost over with. Think everyone is getting a little testy
  15. If you did not know all fitters were not created equal, but at the same time don’t get my response of why I would wanted to talk with one on one you miss the point of fitting. The goal of getting a fitting is to improve your game and your game alone. At that point I was willing to share my knowledge and while I will never claim to be an expert I do have some key insights and true horror stories that some people may take offense too because it happened to them. At this point you would be better served going to bed earlier instead of typing messages in a forum at 1am my time. that way you c
