Got my KBS TD shaft in the mail. Tip is a little scratched from removal but nothing terrible an en in great condition. Won’t even have to trim the shaft as it is the perfect length. Adapter should be here in the next day or two as well as some new epoxy. My old container of epoxy seemed to spring a leak and end up in the box I was storing it in.

Hoping I can get it assembled and in play this weekend.

Yep, everything around me is open. Now we are getting into green aeration season. Most courses seem to be following the same rules.....upside down cups or pool noodles, restaurant is closed or take out only, limited people in clubhouse. Seen some courses with rakes and none seem to be doing single in cart.

 

The big thing that is closed around me is MGS headquarters, would love to compare on the GC quad.

Yeah, I've been hearing nothing but great things about the D grind... and can hardly wait to get it out on the course.  Also, very impressive to hear from very low handicappers you and @jlukes that the D grind is solid and even used by both of you.  I would typically think lower handicappers would play lower bounce, of course that also depends on playing conditions in your area.  My first ever Vokey (don't remember the model, but it was an Oil Can finish that I bought in '02 or '03) was a 60.04 that I absolutely loved.

 

... Bounce is like forgiveness, golfers should use as much as they can effectively play. Given medium to lush conditions bounce will never hurt you but often help you. As you said, in some conditions like no rough, bare bunkers and very tight lies that border on or even actual hard pan found on a typical desert course, a low bounce wedge is your best option. I play my 12* D Grind in Chicago/Orlando and my 8* M Grind in Phoenix. After playing low bounce wedges most of my golfing life because high bounce wedges usually had a very wide sole, moving to more bounce with some relief grinding producing an effectively narrow sole was real eye opener for me.

Thanks for the feedback, in the end forgiveness/bounce is the main reason I went with the D over the M, and it's an added bonus that they both have practically the same heal & toe relief, just different degrees of bounce.  Yes, I live in Albuquerque, which is considered desert, but there's not a ton of hard pan (depending on the course), and the bunker firmness differs from course to course.

D grind is super underrated. I was nervous to give up my M grind but I've been using the D grind for two years now and absolutely love it.

Sorry about having to jump through hoops; looks like you got a decent wedge. Since they don’t seem to want it back, I bet someone would buy it from you.

I plan to donate it to my local first tee once they get back and open.

That is very unusual for Jones--- But after all we are all human and mistakes will be made---- I am sure they will make it good--- Jones makes good stuff and stands by their quality and workmanship


Jones sports called me yesterday. Tried to tell me that the bag was not defective based on the pictures. I told them they were crazy and that it was coming back. They then tried to tell me they wouldn’t pay for return shipping. Got a manager on the phone and they ultimately sent me a free label. Was much harder than I expected! The service wasn’t as good as what I thought it would be.

Got a sleeve of Oncore Elixr coming to me. Am hoping to test it against the couple sleeves of V1X I got at the Golf Show. Want to make a decision on ball by mid/end April to take advantage of the B3G1 V1X if it's that ball or the 6 dozen for $120 for the Elxir right now

I’m going to do this as well with a few different balls this year. One of my goals this season (if I ever get to play) is to find the right ball for me and stick to it.

Nah...shipping was 8 bucks.

less than 10 bucks for a KZG "mini driver" - I spend more than that on a sandwich.  LOL

Honestly didn’t expect it. I thought they’d immediately say, “Send us yours, here’s a free label, and once we receive it, we’ll send you another one, free shipping.”
Nope.
I was going to return it no matter what, but to have them actually say, “It doesn’t appear defective,” was a shock. When I sent three pics to their Instagram account, they immediately replied that I’d be taken care of.
Anyway. No Jones Sports stuff for me in the future based on this experience!

I sent Jones a message today through Instagram expressing my disappointment with their service yesterday. They did reach-out today to try and make it right. It’s appreciated, but I’m going to pass on getting a bag at this time. I feel it’s only fair to post how they responded:

“Hi Paul,

I played an Elixr this past weekend;  I found one and figured I would give it a go.  Had good distance,  maybe a touch shorter than something like a pro v, ,bridgestone, or snell.  Spin was good as I was able to stop the ball within a few feet of the landing spot (I spin the ball enough that is stops within a few feet of the pitch mark).  Probably not my top pick but a decent ball overall.

Seems like some mixed messages from them, and that’s nice, but it would still be a hard pass from me. I get that there are some that really like their stuff, but in my experience it’s simply not very good.

Putting the Jones next to my Ogio, the Ogio has a much better fabric, seems like it would be more durable. The Jones fabric was light, had a wider “weave”, and seemed like it would not hold up long-run.

Definitely mixed messages, but I did tell them I’m on forums and folks had seen the defective bag and were shocked that they didn’t respond better. Got that message from the Manager once I shared that with them...
