  1. Are these standard length shafts?
  2. I'm glad this thread has lived on longer than anticipated and helped someone.
  3. Me too. Stuff like that makes me consider moving back to KY.
  4. In honor of World Whiskey Day, I had some Buffalo Trace with dinner. Before bed I'll cap off the day with a splash of Woodford Reserve Double Oaked.
  5. Bought a Sun Mountain Teton cart bag this afternoon. I've been wanting a cart bag since I'm only a rider in the hotter months and may move into walking with a push cart in the early Spring rounds in the future.
  6. A paint tray. Holy cow! I never even thought of that. That would've been a mess saver for sure. And good luck to you. Regripping is pretty simple, just make sure you take your time.
  7. For anyone who might be curious, after a couple of rounds and range sessions, I'm not overly impressed with the align grips. They feel good in my hands, but the Align strip isn't as noticeable as I had imagined it would be.
  8. While I wouldn't rule out that I forgot one or two, I did tap the end of each grip as I went. Out of curiosity, which ones appear to not be fully seated?
  9. I would like to share a brief update after just shy of two years with this putter (1 year and 9 months I believe). This is by far my favorite club in my bag and firmly in the "cold, dead hands" section. My distance control is highly accurate and the sight alignment and scope still give me the little reassurance I need to succeed. Any 3 putts are a result of poor reads or lackluster approach shots. I will also adhere to the saying that your miles may vary. To some the Red Ball may seem like nothing more than a gimmick that was tried only briefly by Odyssey just to sell more putters. To me, this is my eternal companion on the greens.
  10. I had to teach myself how to edit putts on Arcoss to show this one, but I made one of my better putts ever yesterday. One of my longest and the highlight of my round. All of my putts were good yesterday, but this was by far the best. My distance control is absolutely spot on with my putter, but I don't always read the break correctly.
  11. Amidst an ugly first round of the year, I managed to step on the gas on the 8th tee at Greystone this morning and I managed to stripe one through the gap in the trees and end up in the middle of the fairway. Granted I was back to my usual self right afterwards on the same hole, but I was still smiling. Arcoss doesn't do this justice because right at the hard left in the fairway, the hole climbs up the hillside to the green.
  12. Thanks. It was a case of learning on the go. I didn't suspect that the solvent would have an affect similar to acetone on a rubber product. So, I thought I would share in the hopes that someone on here learns from my mistake.
  13. Anyhow, there is the finished product. 4-PW with Tour Velvet Aligns.
  14. I have spent a lot of time on their website. It's a dangerous place....for my bank account.
  15. I've decided to keep going with the regripping. The rust doesn't look like it is in danger of causing a shaft failure. Plus, I play once or twice a month a best, so I should have a lot of life left in these. And on a related note: DO NOT regrip clubs while wearing a silicone wedding ring. Mine is now several sizes bigger than it should be.
  16. @Tom the Golf Nut, the kitchen is on the short (but not shortest list) list to be replaced anyhow. In the mean time, I'm doing my best as I go and cleaning I'm between each club.
  17. Well, now I have hit a major set back. For those who may not now, this set is not original to me and is at least 25 years old. I bought them online and they came to me from South Dakota. This shaft has rust all the way from the butt to the hosel on the inside.
  18. Yes indeed. I watched the video from Golf Pride on how to properly install the Align series. It seems to just take a hair more patience and attention to detail, but that could just be me. To quote a popular saying on here, "Your miles may vary."
  19. I do have a 1 iron that matches the set....is it useful? Nope. It's just a conversation piece.
  20. It took a little figuring on the fly, but iron #1 is done. Before anyone gets carried away, it's an 8 iron and not an actual 1 iron.
  21. I bought a kit that came with one and as a bonus, that vice is for wood working and comes with rubber pads as well. Thanks for the encouragement.
  22. Good afternoon everyone. I'm trying my hand at re-gripping this afternoon. With a little patience I think I can get it done. I don't have a garage or shop to work out of, but fortunately I remembered this countertop mountable vice that I got a few years ago. I will post a couple updates as I go.
