Review 231.jpg

 

The Clubs:

Bought a set of irons over the Christmas holidays and a snafu led to the addition of the SLDR 430. The irons are much more forgiving than the CMB and some of the softest, purest irons I have ever hit. Can you believe it isn't forged??? Went with blue dots after the fitting, but I may double check them in the next week or two. So far they have performed exactly like I wanted them to. Much higher than the CMB w/ Ctapers.

 

The driver was interesting addition. I'm not a big TMAG fan, but this driver is really nice. I'm getting huge launch, with less spin and getting much better carry and roll than ever before. So far I haven't missed a fairway yet.

 

The Super LS hybrid is a pure beast and may not even be legal. I got it from a friend at Adams and it is a beast. I hit longer than any fairway and its much easier to smoke of the turf.

 

The i20 was the star of the Texas Open Mudfest. In the pouring rain while the other participants were enjoying the woods and ladies tees, I was popping it right down the fairway. A tragic snafu with it in conference of my last year in college means that it is always on the hot seat.

 

Just got the Mack Daddy 2 wedges really sweet. Loving the face and the grind. I have the U grind in the lob. I've been in love with the U grind since Roger Cleveland made me a prototype after first moving to Callaway. Those wedges are now illegal for comp, but these have the same feel.

 

Ahh. The concept 3L. This bad boy is a prototype from a German company poised for success. I cannot go into any specifics about it, however, anyone that has given it a go on the putting green was pretty shocked. I at first thought that it couldn't be legal, but it is! Absolutely deadly from inside of 10 ft. I have no doubt that this tech will be highly coveted when the majors find out about it.

 

Unlike most OEM's, there is some real science behind it, not painful and advertising. Downside, it may be one of the most expensive, non-super exclusive scotty on the site. I may be translating incorrectly (took 4 years of german in college), but the price tag is $1500.

 

Review 223.jpg

 

The Grips:

Of course all of the grips are Best Grips. Right now there is only one proto in the bag (white Carbon fiber, and it's still squeaky clean 6 months later), everything else is standard stuff. Gridirons on the woods, MicroPerfs on the irons and Carbon Fiber on the Putter. I've been saying I was going to custom laser engrave a set, but haven't had the time. 

 

Review 219.jpg

 

The Head covers:

I'm currently switching back and forth between the Superman and The Patriotic Wave for the Driver. The Superman is really cool (even has a red cape). On the Super LS is a James Bond themed tuxedo with 003 (with gun) as the number. The hybrid cover is a mess up I made, ran the stitch through the name and had to make another. My name is not secretly Brian Golden (lol). The Puttershoe is a custom design solely for Braun and Wessner.

Other Notes:

Really loving the New Balance golf shoes. I have wide feet and they are a perfect fit.

I've been warned about giving too much info away. I thought about painting it with that reflective coating, but that would be overkill. You are lucky it doesn't say redacted!!

 

Thanks for the compliment on the bag!

Great bag!

I'll give you more info on the fabled putter...............he doesn't miss with it.  I seriously don't remember him missing a putt inside of 15' at the Texas Open.

 

Nice looking setup, btw, love those S55s.

Are they the same Braun family that makes shavers too? The tungsten discs impregnated in the filled cavities does make for an interesting perimeter weighting idea though.

I saw the new clubs up close and personal yesterday they are really good looking. The shafts in the irons fit Zach much better. He hits it higher now. The driver is a beast. He was very accurate, although there were a couple missed fairways. It is much longer, We went from hitting it similar distance to him putting a good one out there 20 yards past me. I'm believing the slider ain't hype. This is also the third time I've seen the putter and It does work very well for him. I heard a little about why it is awesome and it probably is the next logical thing that putter companies should use for tech next. Finally, my handicap says 1.5 and Zach's says 2 but he is a better golfer than me. We've played three times now and this time was on home turf and while I hang in there on the back 9 he waxed me on the front.

 

We are also in agreement that early spring needs to bring with it Texas Open II

It's all about the short game, unless you can't keep it in play!

What's in my Bag:
Driver: Adams Speedline Super LS 10.5 with Excalibur T7+ tour stiff shaft

Irons: 4-9 KZG Tour Evolution with Nippon N.S. Pro Modus 3 tour 120 x flex shafts

Very nice bag.

 

Thanks whiskey

 

Love the bag Zach! Great choice with the Pings, bet you're glad to be out of the c-tapers lol

 

I am loving the CFS shafts. So much easier to play than the C-Tapers and much longer.

You know what, I don't know. I think it is a common name. Cannot wait to be able to talk more about the tech behind this think. I deal with a lot of OEM's. This guy is playing chess with his tech, while everyone else is playing checkers.
