Been playing Callaway Apex CF16's (PW-3i) and haven't tried anything that made me think upgrading was necessary. This past year I took my TaylorMade Rocketballz 3 wood out of the bag and got the Ping G410 5 wood to help spread my numbers out a little bit better. Love the way the Ping sets up on the ground as well as the feel off the club face. I'm still playing the Ben Hogan TK15 wedges (50/58) but will be in the market soon to replace and will likely be going with the old faithful Vokey or the TaylorMade Milled Grind 2. I've been playing Ping Drivers for as long as I can remember and am still carrying 250 with my Ping G400 with the HZRDUS Smoke shaft and will likely ride it to the retired bag grave with how much I like the feel. On the greens I roll with the Odyssey Protype Tour Series #2. Switched to the Ody after years of a hand-me-down Ping Anser that once the greens started speeding up, I lost all touch with. Currently caught between the Snell MTB-X and the Bridgestone Tour B RX.
Did you guys get to check out the blog on the new wedges from Bridgestone today? Here's the link: https://mygolfspy.com/2018-bridgestone-tour-b-xw-1-wedges/ Couple of impressions -- I definitely prefer the black over the chrome - and so far the finish has held up perfectly. Not sure what they did to to it, but 8 rounds and some practice have shown no noticeable wear. As mentioned the blog - it's a low tech wedge. The forged feeling is wonderful, but if you struggle with wedges there's nothing here that will change that - but then again, the same can be said for pretty much anyone's wedges (we'll see about the Cleveland CBX wedges in less than a month!) KISB - or Keep It Simple Bridgestone: no bounce or grind options - what do you guys think about that? Seems like wedges are going all one way (crap tons of bounce, grind and sole options) or all the other (like Bridgestone). PING, as always, goes it's own way and is somewhere in the middle. Do you like more options or fewer options? And here are some pix that didn't make the cut....
Gotta admit, this one caught me by surprise... Bridgestone is announcing its new Tour-level balls today - the Tour B line. The 12-year old B330 name is being retired - as a name it's not nearly as iconic as ProV or Chrome Soft - but still... Anyway, the details are here: https://mygolfspy.com/2019-bridgestone-tour-b-golf-balls/ What are your thoughts on the name change, the new balls and the switch in fitting approach - score/handicap as opposed pos wing speed?
