  2. Okay everyone someone was nice to send me a Mp20 mmc 7i... modus 120tx 7i came in so everything will be shafted up and pics coming soon!
  3. One thing and this is just a suggestion the shaft is a timing device and kind of needs to match the head you want the best... if your set on the Mizuno the shaft optimizer is a good place to start however it’s limited to things Mizuno carries... if you’re looking for dispersion to actually get better there is Accra then everyone else in my opinion... as @dlow206 mentioned the work is not that difficult to perform yourself and the iCWT 2.0 is discrete meaning that each shaft gets a 1/2” shorter to make it easier to fit and build... happy to chat more as well!
  4. Okay we are having to shift this a little... as some of you know I am making the change from the modus 120TX to X7 and eventually working in the Accra iCWT2.0 as I transition to graphite in a 14 clubs. That being said based on availability of shafts and heads only 2 other heads will be going up against the ts1 forged and they will be the srixon zx7 and honma tr20v and they will all be shafted still with the modus 120TX... wedges will follow because hopefully they will have shipped by that point... I have rented a trackman for this upcoming week to go compare the 7i’s
  5. Okay it’s warming up and my house looks like a golf tornado ran through it, but got the nursery built and the Maltby ts1 is drying so progress is being made... need something fun after everything that’s happened!
  6. So first off y’all have zero idea what I have been through. the ice storm in Fort Worth hit my area the hardest. I live 6 miles from where the 150 car accident was and the water treatment plant main line burst and trapped me and my 31 week pregnant wife for 5 days with out power water gas and I went days with out food so my wife and unborn child could eat. Had to build a fire in my house so my wife could stay warm... there tons more that’s happened, but the maltby challenge is the least of my concern... from 2/11 my last post, it’s been a non stop bursting of pipes weekly visits to t
  7. 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.
  8. First update on wedges comes down tomorrow. Still waiting on the srixon zx7 head.
  9. 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
  10. Things are coming along will open a thread in the next few days
  11. 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!
  12. G425 preorders start today man
  13. When you go to a wedding on New Year’s Eve and the venue tells you the golf simulator is closed.......
  14. You have an auto flex yet?
  15. 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?
  17. 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
  19. @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
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. @Buffly where to start on this...going to box stores and expecting personalized results is setting yourself up to be disappointed. Also anyone who would charge a fee if you know what you want I would personally turn towards the door and run as fast as you can... also I would avoid any major commercial operation that advertises as a custom fitter unless you have a budget of $5k or more... here is a $500 putter shaft sold for $750 plus tax from one of those places... to be honest where you are located it might be tough... send me a DM and we can chat more...
  23. Nah this is in good spirit... I am an okay golfer and I swing decent so it will be a solid test...
  24. I am indeed... I will open another thread and I will tag anyone who has ever been for or against maltby... Please feel free to add anyone I miss... I will outline the entire processs their
