  4. And you thought forum testing season was over huh? Well, you should know at My Golf Spy, testing never sleeps. Whether it’s the Most Wanted Testing, Forum Testing or just plain unofficial forum members doing their own testing, we are always anxious to hear about something new on the market. So the good folks at Callaway reached with a set of 2019 Big Bertha irons to be reviewed. So as we did earlier this year, we put our heads together and came up with who we feel will be a fine selection to put these to the test. And we came up with the perfect Spy in our opinon, please join Dawg Daddy as he shares his thoughts on these irons over the next 4 weeks or so. Normally this is where we would write a bit of a promo piece about the irons while the selection process is going on. But since Dawg Daddy has had these in hand for a short time, we don’t want to spoil any of his Stage 1 impressions on looks and initial thoughts. As we did during some of the later season reviews, Dawg Daddy is ready and able to answer any questions you throw at him along the way, he doesn’t have to save anything for Stage 2. These are expected to be one of the biggest selling irons on the market next year and will definitely get a lot of attention, so fire away with any questions you might have for him.

  8. **MOVED TO EBAY, BIG PRICE DROP** If interested, you can see the listing here. I am selling a mint Callaway Rogue driver autographed by Sergio Garcia...yes, THAT Sergio Garcia. The all-time Ryder Cup points leader. I won the club from a PGA Tour Superstore Twitter contest. So, let's get to the goods. This is a Callaway Rogue driver, 10.5 degrees with a stock, regular-flex shaft. It has never been hit and has only been taken out of the packaging to admire it and take the photos of it you can find below. I am happy to provide more photos upon request. As for the autograph, no, I do not have a COA. However, I do have the entirety of the Twitter messages and email chain between the PGA Tour Superstore rep and me. I can provide these to you upon request. In the email chain, I asked if they had a COA for the autograph and, sadly, they didn't. The rep did assure me, though, he was standing there watching as El Nino signed the club. I am told the autograph (which, to the best of my knowledge, is authentic) combined with the email and Twitter threads would suffice/be enough for a PSA certificate of authenticity to be awarded, though you'd have to pay the fees for that process. After checking to see what some other Sergio-signed merch is going for, taking into account the value of a brand new driver, and considering I do not have a COA, I am asking $700. But I will entertain any serious offers. Please, pm me with any questions, concerns, requests, and offers. Best, Kyle

    Hey guys, We have recently taken up golf and are now on a very tongue-in-cheek journey to becoming scratch golfers. Don’t worry, we’re closer to landing on the moon at this rate. We document each round and would love to hear any feedback, tips or if anyone else around London/Essex wants to play. Our latest video is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r6K8KtmpGbA Check it out, if you can!
  10. So I'm trying to fund my purchase of the new TS lineup of woods from Titleist. Mrs. Nut says I have to sell off some equipment before I can buy anything new. Up first: Titleist D3 with either Rogue Max, Diamana White ... asking $200. Very good condition, as is all my Titleist clubs. Few marks on the crown from bag chatter but clean otherwise. Next we have the Callaway GBB Epic Sub-Zero with either Rogue Max or PX Yellow 6.0. Very clean club, no marks anywhere. Asking $225 OBO Finally we have the Srixon 565. This was a test for me that didn't pan out. Asking $150 Any questions or need additional pics, let me know. Thanks for looking. Golfinnut

    Shaft Expertise - Stiff vs X

    I need some advise on what shaft to hit in two of my clubs that are new to my bag. First club is a Callaway GBB Epic HeavenWood set to 19* in a Aldila Rogue MAX 70 S Second Club is a Cobra King Utility 2-3 Iron set to 18* in a Aldila Rogue 95 MSI 85H Stiff The Question at hand is should I be hitting an X Flex in the two clubs above? - Currently i game a XR 16 Pro with a Aldila RIP Beta 70 X. My driver swing speeds are avg 114mph - My 3W is in a Fujikura Speeder 84 Tour Spec X I feel like the Heavenwood is a nobrainer to swithc since its a 7W in a 3W shaft. However, the Driving Iron is very new to me and i dont know how this fits in shaft-wise since its right between my irons and woods and is a 7W replacement for windy days or narrow courses. My most frequent miss with UDI is left. Thanks!

    Grooves - Question?

    I am looking at buying a set of 2009 Callaway X-Forged or Razr X Forged. I played the 2007 X-Forged but since they were non-conforming, I switched to the Bridgestone J38 Dual Pocket Cavity (great clubs). I have the itch to go back to the Callaway forgings due to their weight (D2) (Bridgestone are a D1). Plus, I really like the look and feel of them. The Question: The 2009 X-Forged has grooves that are spaced "normal" but the Razr X Forged has the tightly spaced conforming grooves. Are the tighter grooves good or bad? (I've heard they don't change much) Additionally, does anyone know if the 2009 X-Forged (Version 2 on USGA Conforming Database) from Callaway have conforming grooves. The USGA database says additional testing required (ATR). If you have any input on how tighter grooves play it would be appreciated. I remember the conversations about it back in the day but I can't seem to find anything about it now. I'm a 5 handicap FYI. Thanks!

  16. Callaway Sure Out Wedge review by Kenny B First, a little about me and my golf game… I will be 71 next month. I’ve been playing golf since I gave up softball, volleyball, and basketball in the early 1990’s. I needed something to play that didn’t hurt my ever-aching body. Well, golf isn’t quite it, but it’s probably better for me than gin rummy, shuffleboard, and naps. Like most people that take up golf, I sliced, then sliced some more. After a couple of years, I made the decision to learn to hit the ball straight or give up the game. I took lessons (should have done that in the beginning); single plane swing lessons. My swing got better and so did my handicap, dropping from 20-something to low teens. What was holding me up then was my short game. I had “hands of stone” according to my club pro. Stabbing at chips and poor speed control with the putter. So, I spent a LOT of time around the practice green. My putting improved first, since the more time I spent on the greens, the more comfortable I felt stroking a putt. About 3 years ago I started looking at the hole when putting, and I went from a decent putter to a good putter (at least in my mind, but that’s another story). While my putting improved several years ago, good wedge play was more difficult. On the green every putt has the same lie and it’s just a matter of getting the correct line and the correct speed (heard someone on the Golf Channel say that once; he’s correct by the way!). Around the green, chipping is very different; good lies, bad lies, tight lies, short rough, long rough, uphill, downhill, sidehill, etc. I didn’t have much confidence; I knew I wasn’t a good chipper, and I usually didn’t disappoint myself. Enter my SCOR wedges… for some reason the SCORs seem to work better for me than any other wedge I had tried. My brand new Vokeys went to the garage. About that same time I moved to a more upscale muni that has a good practice area, I retired from my job, and I spent a lot of time working on my short game. Maybe it was the SCORs, maybe it was just more practice time, but probably a little of both but my short game improved. OK, let’s get to the sand wedge. My old golf course had no bunkers, so no practice there. When I traveled to other courses, I struggled in the sand. Even though I play “bunker avoidance”, it was inevitable that I would be in one. My current course has many bunkers on the course, and a practice geenside bunker. In the past two years I have worn out my SCOR 54* in those bunkers, and honestly, I am not much better out of the sand now then I was before I joined. So, I started looking for an alternative sand wedge. We have all seen the big bounce wedges on GC commercials; XE-1, C3i, and in stores my favorite was always the Cleveland Smart Sole. Last year, Callaway came out with the Sure Out wedge, a takeoff of the Ben Hogan Sure Out. Callaway worked with Hank Haney in the design of this new wedge. On a trip to Portland, Oregon in February, I stopped at Dick’s Sporting Goods because I had an old gift card and decided to give the Callaway Sure Out a try. The Sure Out comes in 56*, 58*, 60* and 64*. Dick’s only had the 58* and 64* in stock. I bought the 58*. I have played with this club for about 6 weeks now with a lot of sand practice. All pictures shown in this review were taken last week, and the wear is very reasonable for the number of shots. The shine has worn off. Test Results Before I took the Sure Out onto the course, I spent a couple of hours hitting the wedge out of various lies around and in the practice bunker. The first thing I noticed was the Sure Out has grooves all the way across the face of the club, similar to the Callaway PM Grind wedge. It also has some relief in the hosel area which should make it less likely to hit sh@nks. The second thing I noticed was the Sure Out is heavier and shorter with a more upright lie angle than my SCORs, which is understandable since I ordered my SCORS 1” long and 2* flat. I didn’t have a problem; I’m just stood closer to the ball which might be a good thing. The third thing I noticed was the ball flies higher and shorter with the same swing. My 58* SCOR has a more penetrating flight than the 58* Sure Out. I probably should have ordered the 56* Sure Out, since I want to use this wedge to replace my 54* SCOR. I will NOT be replacing my 58* SCOR with this wedge; I love my SCOR, but this Sure Out has some great features. I can hit the Sure Out from any lie around the green, even tight lies. I was a little concerned about the big bounce not working on our hard turf, but as long as the attack angle is steep, it will do the job. However, I would always use my SCOR for that shot anyway. In rough the Sure Out is amazing, so effortless to dig the ball out. I would use this wedge for rough over my SCOR. Well, what about the sand?? Being a muni, the sand at my course is not what you would find at a resort or private club. The Sure Out worked well for any sand shot I attempted. Like they say in the C3i wedge commercial, “Not one of them stayed in the bunker. They all came out.” I like this club!! I took my 54* SCOR out of the bag, mainly because I didn’t want to use it while I was testing the Sure Out but also because I need my 58* SCOR for many shots around the green. Since the Sure Out is now the club that goes the shortest distance, I have a yardage gap between my 58* SCOR and my 50* SCOR, but I have been able to manage it by varying shots with my 50*. I rarely ever use my 54* SCOR for full shots anyway. Tips for playing this type of wedge are correct when they say to play square to the ball. I tried setting up open like for a regular wedge, and the ball goes in the direction of setup. Just setup square and make a swing. It doesn’t get any easier than that. Play the ball back in your stance and the shot is lower and carries further; play the ball forward in your stance and the ball flies higher and shorter. I won’t say that this club will be great for everyone. If you are good with traditional wedges, I wouldn’t bother with any of these big flanged wedges. They are a specialty club. However, if you struggle to get out of bunkers, you should seriously consider getting one of these types of wedges… or take a bunch of bunker lessons!! Oh BTW, I haven’t hit a sh@nk with it… yet! I will keep this Callaway Sure Out in my bag for now. I may look at replacing it with a 56* in the future. I certainly don’t need any higher lofted wedge; this 58* goes plenty high for all the shots I need. If you have any questions, I will be happy to try to answer them.

This is officially the ladies version of this head but it is identical to the men's except for the blue color on the sole instead of red. It has the same loft, head weight, and shaft adapter and will play identical as the men's version. The headcover is the men's red version and is brand new. There is one small nick in the paint towards the back of the crown but is very hard to notice and has been colored in. Absolutely fantastic feeling and a real bomber.

  22. In Short: I cannot imagine having a more enjoyable club fitting experience anywhere else and look forward to a putter fitting with True Spec in the near future. I haven’t seen too many threads providing fitting experiences/reviews, especially with True Spec Golf (https://www.truespecgolf.com/). For those of you not familiar with True Spec, here are highlights: Founded in 2014 15 Locations in 6 Countries: North America: Bronx (NY), Chicago (IL), Columbus (OH), Jupiter (FL), Miami (FL), Naples (FL), New York City (NY), Orlando (FL), and Nassau (Bahamas) Europe: Geneva (Switzerland), Sotogrande (Spain), and Turnberry (Scotland) Asia: Hanoi (Vietnam) and Tokyo (Japan) Partner Brands Club Manufacturers: Bettinardi, Callaway, Cleveland, Cobra, Epon, ENVROLL, Fourteen, Gimar, Miura, Mizuno, Odyssey, Ping, PXG, SeeMore, Srixon, TaylorMade, and Titleist Shaft Manufacturers: Accra, Aerotech, Fujikura, Graphite Design, KBS, Matrix, Mitsubishi Rayon, Nippon, Oban, True Temper, UST Mamiya, and Veylix Now onto my experience. In December 2016, True Spec was running a holiday special discount: $100 off a full bag fitting (except for putter). Fortunately, my girlfriend is kind enough to support my addition and was kind enough to gift me my first custom fitting. But before I decided to get fit, I wanted to play a decent amount of the 2017 season to provide a quality “baseline” comparison between my current off-the-shelf clubs and properly fit clubs. Old Clubs and “Normal” Distance (based on data from 14 rounds with Arccos): TaylorMade R11S 9* (Stiff Flex) – 275 Yds TaylorMade Burner Fairway 3 Wood 15* (Regular Flex) – 235 Yds TaylorMade Burner Superfast 2.0 3 Hybrid 18* (Regular Flex) – 185 Yds Callaway X-22 Irons (4 to AW) – 170 Yds (6 Iron) Bombtech 56* – 90 Yds Cleveland 60* – 70 Yds Scotty Futura X5 In mid-July, I called True Spec up and scheduled my full bag fitting over two mornings from 9 AM to 11 AM; Day 1 for Irons and Wedges, Day 2 for Woods. After taking the subway from downtown NYC to Penn Station, I walked over and quickly knew I was in the right place. True Spec’s NYC location is housed inside Golf & Body NYC. While an entire post can be made about Golf & Body, it’s easier to just say that it’s essentially an “indoor country club” equipped with Trackman simulators, a huge putting green, and a full-blown gym. On Day 1, I worked with True Spec fitter Tyler. We started the fitting by having me warm up while Tyler took some fundamental data on my irons and wedges (e.g., loft, lie angle, shaft flex). Once I was warm, Tyler explained that True Spec collects data using the Foresight Sports GCQuad launch monitor and the iron fitting will be based off 6 iron data. In addition, he wanted to see if I had any questions, club preferences, or goals in mind before we collected our first data point. I explained that I never been fit, currently am a 12 handicap, and would prefer a forged, players iron (presuming my ball striking and club speed would allow). Tyler reassured me he’d do everything he can to put the best club in my hands, and that we could now start taking some baseline data with my 6 iron. After a couple shots, we eliminated the mishits and averaged: 121 MPH Ball Speed ~19* Launch Angle ~6300 RPMs 170 Yds (Carry) 180 Yds (Total) 107 Ft. Peak Heigh To keep it short, Tyler and I spent the next 2 hours trying 10 different irons with nearly as many different shafts. Between the data and personal preference, we narrowed it down to the following top performers (with their average data): Srixon Z 565s with KBS C-Taper Parallel Tip Shafts (Stiff); 125 MPH Ball Speed, ~18* Launch Angle, ~5600 RPMs, 180 Yds (Carry), 190 Yds (Total) TaylorMade P770 with Project X LZ 6.0; 123 MPH Ball Speed, ~20* Launch Angle, ~5700 RPMs, 176 Yds (Carry), 185 Yds (Total) Titleist AP2s with KBS C-Taper Parallel Tip Shafts (Stiff); 121 MPH Ball Speed, ~18* Launch Angle, ~6300 RPMs, 175 Yds (Carry), 185 Yds (Total) Fortunately, I didn’t have to make any decisions on the spot, so we then started the wedge fitting. Unfortunately, I don’t have any baseline data, but after about an hour we decided that the combination I got the best feel and performance from was Vokey SM6s in 56* (with 14* bounce) and 60* (with 10* bounce), paired with the KBS 610 Wedge Shaft (Stiff). In addition to being really pleased with how the entire experience was going, Tyler was kind enough to email me with all the GC Quad data we collected throughout the fitting about an hour after we finished. On Day 2, I was teamed up with Doug and, as many great things I could say about Tyler, he was incredible. After receiving my Day 1 results, I naturally I hopped on the forums and started to read reviews. As a result, I had lots of questions for Doug before we even started. Doug was very patient and answered every question I had and, after addressing my anxiety, asked if there were any clubs I wanted to hit that I might have missed out on. As eager as I was to try a few more irons, we agreed that it was best to start hitting some woods while I was fresh. Similar to Day 1, Doug asked me to start warming up with my driver so we could get some baseline data: 148 MPH Ball Speed 110 MPH Club Speed ~12* Launch Angle ~3300 RPMs 250 Yds (Carry) 270 Yds (Total) ~39* Descent Angle From there, we quickly jumped into hitting some top-notch heads (Taylormade M1 and M2, Callaway Epic and Epic Sub Zero, Ping G400, and Titleist 917 D3) and shafts (Fujikura Pro XLR8, Mitsubishi C6 Blue and TENSEI CK, Aldila Tour Blue and Rogue Black, etc.). It was immediately apparent that we needed to find a combination that would help get my spin down. After about an hour of mixing and matching, the Callaway Epic Sub Zero 9.0* with UST Mamiya Elements Platinum shaft stood head and shoulders above everything (152 MPH Ball Speed, ~10* Launch Angle, ~2600 RPMs, 265 Yds Carry, 288 Total). We then turned to 3 Woods. Baseline data with my TM Burner: 143 MPH Ball Speed 106 MPH Club Speed ~11* Launch Angle ~3900 RPMs 220 Yds (Carry) 235 Yds (Total) ~26* Descent Angle Ironically, we ultimately ended up with the first combination Doug put in my hands, but only after we verified it with a similar sampling of head and shaft combinations. TaylorMade M2 3 Wood 16.5* (High Launch) with Graphite Design Tour AD (152 MPH Ball Speed, 107 MPH Club Speed, ~11* Launch Angle, ~3300 RPMs, 236 Yds Carry, 255 Total). Finally, replacing my Hybrid. Full disclosure, I hate my Hybrid. 99% of the shots end with a cursing, thoughts of club throwing, and a frustrating pull hook. I came into my fitting with the hopes that if my club speed was high enough, that I could be fitted for a Driving Iron or carry a 3 Iron. Unfortunately, Doug informed me that True Spec currently does not fit for Dis, but Doug was able to convince me that I should some 5 Woods and properly fit Hybrids a chance before dismissing them altogether. After spending an hour trying a few Hybrid and 5 Wood combinations, I (ironically) found out that TaylorMade M2 5 Wood 18* also with Graphite Design Tour AD (144 MPH Ball Speed, 105 MPH Club Speed, ~12* Launch Angle, ~4100 RPMs, 219 Yds Carry, 234 Total) would outperform a 3 iron. NOW after spending the past three and half hours dialing in my new woods, Doug reminded me that the offer to hit some extra irons stood as long as I had the energy. I was all for it and while taking a brief water break, Doug asked if I had any specific concerns about how yesterday went. I explained that as much as I loved how the Srixon Z 565s performed, I really wanted a forged iron that would demand me to play better golf while simultaneously not leading me to quit golfing. I then asked Doug if I could hit the Miura CB 1008s, the Titleist AP2s (again), Mizuno JPX Tours, and the Srixon Z 765s. Also, just to check my ego, I asked to hit the Miura Tournament Blades MB001s. As much as I wished I could play the MBs, I knew that I currently don’t have the skill to enjoy them. Fortunately, the extra time was not wasted. In fact, Doug and I were able to determine that I could hit the Z 765, and that it was up to me to either: (1) go with a quality combination set (Srixon Z 565s for 4 through 6 irons and Srixon Z 765s for 7 through Gap Wedge); or (2) go with a full bag of Z 565s or 765s. Once again, there was no pressure to make a decision on the spot and after a couple of days, I decided to go with a full bag of the Z 765s. But before ending Day 2, Doug took the time to walk me through all the custom accessories and options. After trying and talking about every possibility, I decided on customizing the Callaway Epic SZ with White Rails, Crown and Sole, along with White NO1 50 Series grips on all my woods. The Srixons would just get Black NO1 50 Pro Series grips. And as for my Vokey SM6 wedges, I opted for the Raw Black Finish also with Black NO1 50 Pro Series grips, finished off with some custom Wedge Stamping and White Paintfill. To wrap things up, True Spec delivered on everything I expected and could’ve wanted from a custom fitting. I genuinely appreciate the time Tyler and Doug spent with me to ensure that I will be ordering a set of clubs that will perform and I look forward to playing with. Furthermore, True Spec is available to golfers all across the world. As a result, I would highly recommend that anyone who is looking to be fit for clubs to, at a minimum, consider True Spec Golf. I know that before I decided to get fit, I decided to meet with two reputable NYC-private fitters and two competing national club fitters. Despite the time I spent speaking with and building a rapport with these other fitters, True Spec stood out and exceeded all expectations.
  23. I am looking for a trade. I will give my Taylormade M1 10.5 2017 and I want a callaway Epic SZ. If someone has a Rogue Max 75X would be nice but I could trade just the head too. I have a lot of XStiff shafts just in case someone wants to trade the rogue max for another XStiff shaft.. Just hit me up!! Thank you

  25. PRICE DROP Asking 70 USD shipped OBO. First time posting on this website, look up my ebay account Dere3 to verify. Brand new Callaway Big Bertha Alpha 815 18 degree hybrid, Motore Speeder 865 stiff shaft, New Decade MCC grip, Head Cover and original packaging Hit this club one time on the range with masking tape over the original head plastic. Removing the masking tape peeled off the shrink wrap on the head. SINCE THEN THE CLUB HAS NOT BEEN HIT. Face is mint, not a scratch anywhere. Club is an absolute rocket launcher but doesn't gap well with my current setup Would consider trade for a 2015 or newer driver. Will ship anywhere in USA or Canada
