  1. I was fit into Cobra Speedzones with Modus 130 x by a top 100 fitter in my area in November of 2020. I was pummeling those clubs, but if I would pull one, it would be a really low spinning, running hook that would go 20 yards longer in the long irons than my target number. That miss was happening too often. I went back for an equipment evaluation and bent the speedzones flat to try to get rid of the big left miss, that helped, but only to a degree. I then started trying other equipment and found that tip stiff and butt soft shafts with less offset heads were helping me avoid the big hook.
  2. I've had it a few months now, I love it. If I ever wear out the flight deck at $65/shipped its a really cheap "insert" to replace! My biggest complaint w CCE is it made me more of a sweeper because it will sting you if you hit down too excessively (at least for me)!
  3. The bottom is still the same plastic base as it had originally, i just cut off the outer plastic rim. It sits very flat and is held snug by the CCE.
  4. I got my 3 wood! It took 11 weeks from when the order was placed. My fitter said the delays were not due to component availability alone, it was that plus a huge COVID shutdown in Arizona (where the ping factory is). Apparently their factory was closed for 6.5 weeks, and they came back to an 8,000+ order backlog. Apparently Ping is still not caught up, and they are still not at 100% staffing due to the virus. My fitter said they didn’t get any heads up from Ping, and had to figure it out once customers orders were in the week 5-6 range. As a result they stopped fitting people into Pi
  5. TXG did a video where they fit a club pro for the G400 Max driver. Ian, the main TXG guy commented, “better players with good sequencing will usually have 20mph difference between driver and 6i club head speed”. The pro in the video had an 89mph 6i and a 109mph driver. My 6i clubhead speed is 84mph (trackman). My driver clubhead speed is 90mph (trackman). I’m very accurate with driver but no matter now much I try to step on it I can’t get my ball speed past the low 130s with my or any of my buddy’s clubs. Yet, I can get 120-125mph ball speed out of my 21• 5i pretty easily (Cobra Spee
  6. I’m going on 7 weeks, the shop told me the last 3 wood ordered from Ping ahead of me took 8.5 weeks. I think it’s a shaft availability issue, the Tour 75 is made by UST Mamiya (like the recoils @Rickp ) - UST must’ve been impacted by all this as well. It’s hard to blame Ping, but unfortunately these delays are eating into the little bit of the golf season that I still have up here. What a weird year!
  7. I always read the putt, line up my ball, set the putter in line w the ball, then set myself up to the putter. The second line on the putter is a final bit of feedback to make sure I’ve set my upper body up over the putter correctly, ie - that my head is in the right place. Once my head is set I pull the trigger (which for me is give the handle a tiny forward press, pause, then rock the shoulders). My problem wasn’t setting my feet up too close or too far away, I have a tendency to slouch sometimes, which pushes my eyes out past the line. Being able to get my head (the top of the pendulum
  8. My fitter pointed out my eyes weren’t in the right place over the ball (I don’t have the parallax problem you do, so I need to have my eyes “on the line” more consistently). He had the club tech at a second alignment line to the crown of the putter with automotive pin striping (that he then hit w a heat gun to harden it on). It works kind of like rifle sights, if my eyes are in the correct spot over the ball those two lines will line up, if not, they don’t. You could do something similar, just move the top line back toward you and it should put you where you want to be?
  9. SO - Arccos released a new strokes gained feature a few weeks back, and It showed my putting was better on average after I started doing drills and got fit for a putter: However, putting was still holding me back: I was losing strokes within 25 feet worse than from 25+ feet: I took a lesson with the best teacher / player I know (he won the Ohio PGA and caddied on tour for 7-8 years). He watched me putt and hated how “jerky” my putting stroke was (slow and short backswing, fast, stabby followthrough). We worked on that and he gave me a drill, after putting t
  10. Joe / Cleveland Oh 12 hcp Cleveland RTX4 52 (mid) / Cleveland RTX4 56 (full) / ZipCore 60 Satin (low) I’d love to see if a raw wedge spins more on skytrak loft for loft.
  11. I got fit for a Ping G410 3 wood with the Tour 75 shaft in stiff on 8/28, 5 weeks later (today) I call the shop that fit me and they looked it up in Pings system, it still has a status of “processing” with no estimated ship date. The shop said it has happened before when they run out of a shaft or a head. Anyone else experience this?
  12. I went in for an iron and hybrid fitting, and the fitter started off by assessing lie angles and club length of my current set. He asked a bunch of questions about what I’m looking for throughout the set and what I struggle with and took a look at my numbers for my current clubs. I wanted to try pings, we started there then went to TaylorMade, then srixon - everything was so-so until he put a Cobra Speedzone with a Nippon Modus 130 x in my hand. After the first shot I let out an involuntary, “What the f***?!” Yes, the lofts are jacked. Yes, the faces are hot. Yes, they fligh
  13. I’ve had a country club elite mat in my garage hitting bay for a few years. It’s a very durable hitting mat that holds tees well, and is probably the best for training golfers out of hitting fat shots (it penalizes chunky shots pretty severely). My only complaint with the mat is that if you try to take any kind of a “divot” into the country club elite mat, the impact is somewhere between “firm” and “jarring” depending on how steep and how hard you chop into it. I gave myself a minor left wrist injury from over-use last year (both on the CCE mat and on the course), and there are anecdotal
  14. That’s what I was hoping to hear, because the G400s W the stock AWTs are priced to move right now at Dicks/Golf Galaxy. It’s tempting me to jump on the 400s now before their gone!
  15. That could be perfect, if you already play s300 in your wedges those will blend perfectly.
