  1. So, I just recently switched to the Q Star Tour from the Z Star XV. Figured it'd be a huge change and take a while to adjust, but it really hasn't. I've actually played some of my best golf with this ball. Wondering if anyone can point me to a breakdown of the four (?) generations and how to ID them. I normally buy balls from lostgolfballs.com and I'm curious as to which is the newest/oldest.
  2. Solid white? 2 White plaid? Several.
  3. I'm currently gaming the UST Recoil 95 F4 (soft stepped once) in my irons (4-GW). I recently made the move to graphite due to nerve issues and old age, in general. My wedges still have steel shafts in them. They're both Dynamic Gold Tour Issue. One is S400 and the other is wedge flex. I'm not 100% sure on that wedge flex shaft, but I'm certain the S400 is near 130g. I'm contemplating changing to graphite in the wedges, too, but not sure I want to go all the way down to 95g. Thinking of going to the Recoil 110g F4 and putting a 9i shaft in them to match my other wedges. Wondering what others have done.
  4. Six total Driver - UST V2 4wd - I dunno, whatever was in there when I bought it. I need to reshaft it. It's too stiff for me right now. It's a 70x of some sort. 3h - Steelfiber 4-GW - UST Recoil SW/LW - True Temper Putter - Stroke Lab
  5. One week down. Just 11 1/2 more months to go! Good luck with that. Eh, I guess you're probably picking a good time to try it. You'll be so busy with the retirement process that you shouldn't have time to screw around hoing clubs.
  6. I'm sure you've already heard it elsewhere, but... I'll believe it when I see it. Haha... It was great meeting you finally!
  7. Looking for 4-GW, but will consider other setups. F3 or F4 would work. Let me know what you have.
  8. Yeah, I've never been fond of par 3 18th holes. I can agree about the course being fast back out of the way and Navy being easily accessible. I'm hoping to get in 5-6 rounds while I'm there. Just trying to narrow down where.
  9. @yungkory@mr.hicksta why, when talking of military courses on Oahu does Mamala Bay not get any love? I hear the arguments for Klipper, but I also hear many people recommending Navy-Marine, too, before Mamala Bay. Is it just because it's easier to access since it's not on base?
  10. It'll line up. My kid is on the same ship as hicksta. I'm meeting them to ride back to San Diego.
  11. I was stationed at Hickam from '95 to '00. Played quite a few courses on the island. Never hit Ko'olina. I'll be there on July 28th. Should be there for about a week. Any chance you'd be up for a round (or a couple)?
  12. GLWS. I've been "trying" to sell mine for some time now, but just hard to do when you have to factor in shipping. Anyway, if you get someone on the other side of the country and you can't work a deal because of shipping, send them my way and I might be able to do it since I'm a little closer.
  13. So what was the main difference between the 0211 and 0311?
  14. This puller gaveme about 15 good years and would be an excellent piece for someone that has the capabilities to machine a new block for the top piece. You can make out the hole in one pic. Other than that the thing should function well. Ask questions if you have them. Asking $30 shipped to domestic U.S. addresses.
  15. Good luck with the sale. I bought one, too, only to be completely disappointed in it. At this point, I'd sell it cheap just to get the space back in my garage. Sucks that shipping is so outrageous. It's tough to sell a bag.
  16. So, my kid took his Srixon irons back. For today, I put in a set of "vintage" Dynacraft 1030cv/b irons with the Matrix Ozik Program F15 shafts that I picked up from @Syks7 here. I'm really liking the lighter graphite. I figured I'd have a hard time adapting, but I was able to get them to a ~D4 swingweight with some lead pins and building to a 38.5" 5 iron. I've got my cavity/blade split at the 6/7 irons for now. I'm leaning toward putting some ZX series irons in the bag. Will likely go with the blades in the 7i and shorter. Might go with a ZX5 4i, otherwise, it'll be the ZX7 from 4-6. I shot a 44/37 today with the new irons in the bag.
  17. Picked up a TM SIM2 Max 9° head. Should serve me well for all of 2022 and likely most of 2023.
  18. Ok, so, I haven't been around here much lately. To sum up things, I played my last tournament for 2021 on July 19th. I had been tolerating golfer's elbow for some time and had already decided to take of 6-8 weeks after the tournament to let the elbow heal. The plan also included selling my "entire" bag and getting fit after the elbow healed and building a new bag. Unfortunately, about 4 weeks into my 6-8 weeks recovery, I pinched a nerve in my neck and that kept me sidelined until late Oct/early Nov. I had already sold my whole bag (except my "trusty" Odyssey SL EXO Marxman putter and my beloved Cleveland RTX-4 58/03 LW) and since it was November, I decided to hold off on the full fitting for a bit. To add to the problem, I started a new job in October and since I'm now working retail, I didn't have much time on my hands in Nov/Dec so I didn't wanna push it too much too quickly. Anyway, Christmas has passed and I've been able to get about 4-5 rounds in since the pinched nerve has been healed so I have decided to move forward. I picked up a TM SIM2 Max 9° driver head on eBay and mated it to a HZRDUS Smoke Black 6.0, 60g shaft I already had. I haven't had a chance to hit it yet other than a little bit on a simulator and a little bit at a free TM fitting day on the local course. I think I'll like it though. It's definitely a move forward from my M5. The plan is for Srixon irons, though I haven't decided on a ZX5/ZX7 combo set, a full ZX5 or a full ZX7 set, or maybe a ZX5, ZX7, ZX Forged combo set. For now, I've put together a set of old Dynacraft 1030cv/1030b irons (4-6 cavity and 7-PW blade) with a set of graphite iron shaft that were generously given to me by a fellow Spy. I will be going graphite in my next set so I like the experiment with these. Also, the 7-PW blades will let me decide if I want to do any blades at all. I highly doubt I'll go lower than an 8i with the blades, but I could definitely be swayed toward a 9i or possibly 8i in a blade. Wedges will likely be Zipcores of some type. Stay tuned.
  19. Yeah, I know. I was being a tidbit facetious. I liked the Black 6.5, 85g because I could go after it without worrying (as much) about it getting away from me. My swing topped out around 105-108ish while I played it. My tendency is to quit on the swing and leave it hanging out right. With the Black, I felt like I could go after it without worry of overcooking it. I favored a fade, but I could draw it if necessary.
  20. By turn over, are you talking about a right to left ball flight for a right handed player? If so, that puzzles me. I can duck hook my HZRDUS Black 6.5, 85g shafts with the best of them.
