Hi All! I'm just recently getting back into my club repair/building. Went to school and took some classes on this back in the day, the only thing I am missing in my set up at the moment that i think would really benefit me would be a Mitchell type machine for bending loft/lie. Is there a solid option out there that isn't going to cost me $1,000+. I'm not yet planning on doing this for a ton of other people, so the investment wouldnt be worth it at the moment. I will bite the bullet eventually since it's something i would love to get back into as a part time gig. Right now in my makeshift shop I have mostly golf works equipment: Grip station (Vice mounted) Shaft extractor (Vice mounted) 1" x 30" belt sander Bench top small chop saw 8" grinder wheel (new purchase, still not sure exactly what buffing/grinding wheels to get) PLUS all the extra smaller tools needed to remove grips & do the small stuff Any other recommendations would be awesome! Thanks! Thank you!
Hello folks, new guy here, I have finally decided to buy a new set of irons this summer after gaming the same set for ~15 years. Have never been fitted for irons either. Primarily looking at Titleist AP2/CB, Mizuno H5/MP-15, or the new Hogan hi/PTx (always admired the Hogan Apex Plus). I am not an equipment junkie so I am really going to take my time with this decision. I am an ok ball striker with a horrible mental game. My current set has 4* gaps with a 48* PW which gives me 3 wedges up to 60* (love my 60*, too much probably). I spoke with a Mizuno fitter who was really surprised that I would want to bend every iron to keep my current specs. He said it just wasn't modern. Modern meaning 46*PW. I really like having a uniform progression up to 60* (perhaps my attraction to the new Hogan philosophy). It works really well with my distances so that my 8i (40*) goes 150y. Distance isn't as big of a concern as constant yardage gaps for me. I realize this is probably an old and tired question, but how do you folks deal with the new 'modern' lofts? Do you bend them? Carry wedges with larger degree gasps (assuming you want a 60* wedge)? Am I missing something? Please educate this equipment dinosaur.
