10.5 SIM Max
Roger Dunn gave me $328 for the flash, it was hard to say no. With the credit I had, I paid $130 out of pocket. 
Tracking down a "real" Ventus to put in it and test, but if I can't get one the stock non velocore Ventus actually felt really nice!

Interested in some real world reviews on the SIM. As a former diehard Taylormade fan, I have a few of their products in my crosshairs. Not the driver yet, obviously but maybe some other offerings they have.

Do you know if it has the same adapter as the M5?

Thank you mate. I may have to try it in Florida next month with my current shaft.

From what I have heard the center of club face was unused.

New here, but have to show off my new toy. 

Callaway Epic Flash Sub Zero - Mitsubishi Tensei CK White TX at 45".

I hit multiple drivers and while this one feels like a wood baseball bat when I hit it, I couldn't argue with the numbers. 

I hit the Mavrik with the same shaft and at 200 balls each over two days (10/10/10) I averaged 1.9mph higher ball speed with the flash than the Mavrik. I think it's because my miss is more on the heel than the toe. Misses on the toe of the Mavrik were longer, while misses on the heel were longer on the flash.

I'll definitely post my thoughts somewhere on the boards. Off of the range balls it felt great, can't wait to get it on the course tomorrow.

I SHOULD'VE MENTIONED THIS AND GOT MORE MONEY. Thanks for forgetting to remind me. Some e-friend you are!

Ordered a jacket from Ping.com in a large. When it arrived it was too small. Contacted Ping they told me it was European sizing so I paid shipping and sent it back, ordering the same in an XL. Arrived today but it is still too tight. Now I know I need to drop a few pounds but this is ridiculous. My size Large golf shirts fit fine but an XL jacket is too tight?

C’mon man! This is just not right! And I have to pay return shipping.

Time to talk to a Customer Service Supervisor. Negotiate shipping charges or throw in some swag.

For those of you who know anything about me, you'd know that I've got a flavor for eclectic, off the beaten path, not so mainstream equipment. One might also interpret that as NOT 2020, NOT gigantic name brand, and definitely NOT high-dollar. We'll the answer would be yes to both.

It's not often that I'm able to get my lean budget, mint clubs, and new "ish" tech to all play nice in the sandbox together.

Well for a very lean $125 I picked up these beauts.

I honestly can't see how these were played with for more than three rounds.

Looks like you completed your check list with a great pickup
Very nice

That is a great set of irons.

I was fit for a set about 4 years ago when they came out. Very forgiving for that subset of clubs, I liked everything about them but the distance.

This was back when the Apex CF16's were coming out, and the Wilson's were a 1/2 to a full club shorter. If I was one of those big hitters who don't "need every yard", I might have gone with the F5's, they were that good. Unfortunately, I'm not and I had access at the time to big discounts on Callaway equipment, so I went with the CF16's.

You got an unbelievable deal. Enjoy your new sticks, they're worth 10x what you paid!!!

Of course I took them straight to the monitors on my way home from picking them up. I actually like that the lofts on these are very conservative. 35° 7 I, etc. They are the same as my current set and spot on for the yardages that I'm used to. 

Another plus for me is that they come stock 1/2" longer than most OEMs. So loft, lie, and length are a spot on match to my current set. 

Time will divulge more details but from what I could gather is that they are 100% as advertised by Wilson as far as what crowd they're aimed at. And that is Perfecto!

BTW @azstu324

The finish on those clubs is incredibly good. I don't know why Wilson and other OEM's don't use it more often. It's similar but not exactly like the "tumbled" look of PING irons up to the G30's. I told you I love the F5's, and whenever I see a set in someone's bag it's amazing how well they've held up.

The CF'16s had a nice finish, but even for a forged club they dinged up quickly. Some of the cast irons Callaway and PING have made recently, such as the Steelheads, Rogues, and the G look horrible after just a few rounds. Just a horribly cheap chrome finish, yet at a premium price.

Not golf related per se but country club related because I am a northern hillbilly that wears boots as formal wear. I got my son his first pair of boot and jeans in Nashville. I also treated myself to two new pair as well. He went patriotic to match his cowboy hat.

Mizuno MP18 MMC FliHi 4 iron arrived today. Pleased to say it's in almost new condition. Of course my 4 hybrid that it's going to replace behaved itself last round.

1/2 inch extension and new grip will go in when they arrive, hopefully tomorrow.

Do you like it better than the Sun Mountain 3.5?  I've been looking for a new bag, but they want way too much for 'em these days.
