What have you bought lately? (CHA - Club Ho's Anonymous)

As a group we buy/sell/trade a lot of gear on a regular basis, time to show it off. So what have you bought lately?

 

I picked up a Carnahan St. John's putter in the bargain bin at 2ndSwing for $8. Took it home and reshafted/gripped it and put in some new paintfill.

Next up is the possible replacement for my SLDR. I really wanted it to be a G30 LS, but the numbers just weren't there. So hit this bad boy and spin dropped almost 900rpm and ball flight straightened out. I'll have to get it on the course for a side by side comparison before I determine if it makes a spot in the bag.

Just picked up a 915D2 myself. Immediate improvement.

Thanks Rick. I played a sweet set of becu Ping Eye 2's from 2005-2007. Great clubs but I never cared for the Ping Microtaper shafts. I took a break from golf and after not playing for 4 years decided to sell them. Got a pretty penny for them too.

 

 

I used to play with a guy years ago that had a set of ISI's and after hitting a set a few weeks ago I remembered how good they were, so I found a set cheap on eBay. Got them all cleaned up with some new paintfill with some new Pure Grips going on later this week.

 

They are really beautiful clubs in an ugly sort of way, almost like functional modern art.

Nice job on the ISI's.  They were never my favorites; stuck with my Ping Eye 2's for probably longer than I should have.  Had to go to graphite, but love them!

Not technically new clubs, but I gave my set a much needed bath so they'd look and feel new.

I really liked my Ping Eye 2's. My buddy had i3 blades and switched to some ISI after I got my Eye 2's. This was around 2006 so both the Eye 2's and ISI were old clubs by then. We both played white dot so I tried his ISI's and holy smokes, just incredible. I was kind of jealous as they performed better than my Eye 2's. His ISI's had JZ Stiff shafts while my Eye 2's had Microtaper stiff shafts. The JZ's were just a much better shaft for me.

 

It was a bit difficult finding a white dot set with the JZ shafts, most were the ZZ's which play similar to the Microtapers, but I found a set, also found all the wedges in JZ shafts as well.

 

I still love my Macgregor's but I had forgotten how easy game improvement clubs are to hit in comparison. The Ping's are super easy.

The Eye 2's were very easy to hit.  At the time I was a 20+ and a horrible ball striker, but they were very forgiving.  I played them up until 2004, but when the lofts changed I just didn't like hitting a longer club into a green.  I know it doesn't make any difference, but psychologically it bothered me. That was about the time I bought my Macgregors, and while they were less forgiving, they sure felt good when I hit good shots.  Last year I reshafted them and strengthened the lofts.  The Macs now fly very similar to my Ping i20's.  I flip-flop between them depending on turf conditions.

I've just ordered custom built mizuno S18 wedges

.5 inch short KBS hi rev stiff shafts electric blue lamkin utx grips the chrome finish in 50/54

And if I gel with them I will order them same spec in 58 in black colour to help reduce the glare...I play the new mcdaddy forged at the moment so these S18 wedges have a lot to live up too when they arrive.

Its time to get a new lob wedge for sure. I stretched about as much life as possible out of my 2 scratch 8620 D/S lob wedges. I can't seem to find any more even on the bay. 

I wonder if any manufacturer makes one with a similar bounce and look. Bc I don't really want to change anything. I've just worn these out.

You could try a groove sharpener to breath some life back into yours

Plz report back on your impressions. Currently playing MD3s but really like the look of the new S18s.

I've never really trusted those to actually help for some reason. 

 

Even if I did, its about time for some new ones. My wedges are the oldest clubs in my bag. I can survive with the current ones except with the lob wedge.

It might also make them non conforming if you were to mess up or something

True. There's different sizes and shapes for this reason. I've revived mine twice doing this.

I had the MD3 before the Mcdaddy forged and if I`m truly honest I only changed from the MD3 to the forged for 2 reasons none of them reasons were that the performance of the MD3 lacked in any shape or form they are truly awesome.

The first reason I changed was that I wanted that forged feel. (After owning them there is not much feel difference, to be honest)

And the second reason is that I`m a compulsive spender and have no control over my self...I try to buy happiness..........I will never learn!!

 

Yes, I will report back on the new S18 wedges but I doubt they are any different to the Mcdaddys other than looking good in the bag and matching my Mizuno set.

 

I cannot be more honest than that.

Got em nice and dirty at the range yesterday. It's quite a different look seeing washed grooves. They're brighter at address.

 

Not sure if it's in my head or not but the spin seemed to be WAY up. I keep my grooves clean but is it really possible that dish soap and water adds spin as well?

Might be physiological looking at clean grooves. Need someone smarter than me to figure that out.
