  1. Second this. I love my 921 Hot Metal Pros and have no regrets whatsoever about switching to them from the Callaway Mavrik that I was originally fit to (the HMPs originally came in a very close second).
  2. I'm a high handicap, and when I went for a fitting in the fall, I originally ended up with the Callaway Mavrik. However, I had hit the 921 HMPs virtually the same and ultimately switched to those - for me, I liked the look, sound/feel, less offset, smaller top line, etc. of the Mizuno compared to the Mavrik and I hit them virtually the same. Additionally, the Callaway looked like they were 5 years old after a couple of rounds due to bag chatter and the like. I do not regret switching to the Mizuno at all. I also tried the Titleist T300, Wilson D7 Forged, and I had hit the G410 at a Ping fitting event about a week earlier.
  3. David swung by tonight and dropped off some Pro V1 and V1x - he said since it took him so long, he doubled up everything. So, 2 2-packs each of V1, V1x, and matte pink Velocity for my 7-year old daughter who plays.
  4. I'm still waiting for mine. Had a call with David on Friday the 22nd. Turns out he lives nearby and said he'd swing by and drop a couple of sleeves of Pro V1x off, as well as a couple pink ones for my daughter in the mailbox. But alas, haven't seen any yet...or the mailman stole them one day.
  5. Just finished my fitting with David. We apparently live about 5 minutes from each other, so he's going to run some Pro V1x samples by the house this weekend. Allegedly the 2021 model - he said I'll be the first one in his territory to get the new model. He said he'll also bring a couple of balls for my 7-year old daughter who started taking lessons this past summer. Super nice guy. Good conversation. Very cool that Titleist is doing this for anyone that wants to sign up.
  6. I've got one set up for this coming Friday the 22nd with David. Looking forward to it after reading everyone's experiences.
  7. I’ve got a custom set of 921 HMP’s coming in the next month or so, but $84-$89 a club is almost too good to pass up. So tempting. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I just did a custom order on the HMPs, and they're on backorder until 1/7, so the fitter told me that as long as that doesn't get delayed further for some reason, I'll likely have them in hand around the end of January/early February - so around 8-10 weeks from order date. The good news is that since I'm exchanging my Callaway Mavriks under the 90-day playability guarantee, I can hand on to the Callaway's until the HMPs come in. So between that, and not really being able to play a lot right now, I'm not missing out on much, since I can still use the Callaway for whatever I need in the meantime. According to the fitter, pretty much everything is taking 4+ weeks at the moment, and some are way worse (see: Ping).
  9. Golf Discount will periodically have "performance packs" (6 balls) of the current gen Z Star and Z Star XVs for $10.00 each, so $20/dozen. I picked up about 5 dozen a month or so ago.
  10. Ahh. Very cool. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. So are you keeping both sets? Or did you order both to test and you’ll move the one you like less? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  13. Ryan, Frisco, TX A couple ways. Putt on carpet at the house. Since I'm in North Texas, I can still sometimes get out to practice greens even in the winter. I also implement a 4 foot aluminum ruler in the house to work on keeping a straight line at the start of the putt. And I've been using the PuttOut Pressure trainer - both on the carpet, and with the Wellput mat noted below. I've recently been trying a Wellput mat in the house. It's good overall because it is faster than the area rug in the living room, but I am keen to try some other options to see if I prefer them to the Wellput. One of the biggest downsides I already see with Wellput is it seems like the "grain" on the mat changes frequently as the ball rolls, so I am interested to see if other mats have a more consistent grain that I'm not having to constantly "fix." I would want to test the Medium (10-11 Stimp) speed.
  14. At my recent fitting I hit the D7 and the HMP. Both awesome clubs. I ended up going with the standard Mavriks, though I was hitting the HMP very similarly. I actually may end up switching to the HMP under the 90 day playability guarantee for a couple of various reasons, but we shall see. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
