Nope! Well, I guess kinda. For shoes I just wear around I usually go 12.5 for a little extra room, but athletic shoes I like a more snug fit. I had 12s in the previous Adidas I had (which I think Adidas runs a tad on the small side) and went with 12s for the Inesis and like the fit. I'd probably just say if you find yourself caught between sizes go up a half, but they seem really similar to the Adidas sizing to me.

awesome thanks man !

Just picked up two Vokey SM8 wedges, 52*F & 58*M to replace a couple of CBX wedges I just went to after playing MD's the last few years.

It's funny, I love the look of a "bigger" head on an iron, but as soon as I put the CBX wedges in my bag, I knew it was a mistake. I could've lived with the 52* as a full swing club, but the 58* is the club I use from greenside bunkers. It just looked too big, and had too much(?) bounce for the hard compacted sand I usually play out of. I just never felt comfortable with it, and the results weren't good either. 

I know that's a "me" thing, because almost everyone I know who plays the CBX wedges loves them, they just weren't for me. Oh well, onward and upward with the Vokeys….

I know this is that what did you buy lately thread, but after wearing my spiked shoes for a few rounds, I don't see a reason to ever buy spikeless again.

Especially where you live, where I assume it is often wet? I couldn't imagine playing in wet conditions in spikeless shoes. I've slipped a couple of times in my downswing when wearing spikeless when it has been barely damp.

 

I didn't know it was wedge month, you folks have been busy!

Yes, very wet in the fall and winter months. And my home course is very hilly as well.

Greenside, the CBX2 has been performing just as good as any other wedge.  Except it's new, so the ball is checking up a pinch more.   I've had some good up and down's with it. 

 

On pitches from 40-80 yds, I have been all over the place.  Not sure yet if that is more me than the club.  Last few times out I've had a ton of shanks, with every club... so it's probably more me.  I'm probably just missing the middle, so I don't have my distance dialed yet. 😉

And in a classic club 'ho move... ordered a new set of irons during a summer sale - untested and .. yes .. unfitted-for (..i know, i know .. maybe next season...) ... and to top it off, put 'em into the bag and started playing them - no range preview, no side by side test vs the incumbents. I've been liking the new irons, but wasn't 100% confident in my impulsiveness, and finally got both sets to the range yesterday - and quickly decided that I'd actually made a good equipment decision for once!

Old: Apex CF16
New: PXG 0211

Interestingly, the stock specs (L-L-L) are identical (offsets differ slightly) but the 0211s are a little more GI which is what I need. Yes, I saw a little more distance with them but the biggest positive comparison was the dispersion - the 0211s with the MMT shaft (stabilized tip) seem to be way, way better for me. Also feel like I have a little more confidence with the 0211's 6i, so we'll see if I can start hitting that one effectively out on the course.

But (and dare I admit here within this thread!) the real magic bullet for me is more lessons ... next one is this coming Friday!

I didn’t really NEED balls just yet but, I just had to have some of the mustache pix so I ordered them. Interesting bit though. Package arrived with the mustache version right away but the pix version was not in the box. Emailed TM and they  were quick to respond and quick to get the pix shipped out. It was my first order from TM and I am pleased with their service.

Picked up a SeeMore True Center Blade today because I have zero restrain or self control. At least my wife told me to just put it in the basement and keep using the Scotty that I have not shot a round over 70 with it in my bag.

And yes, she is the smart one in the family.

While I am perfectly happy with my combo of Ping, Callaway and Wishon wedges I decided to order some Maltby TSW wedge heads to do a little testing. Already got friends asking me to build a few so they can try. Going to pair the first one with a 100gm Robin Arthur Extreme Spin wedge shaft. One of my favorite graphite wedge shafts. We'll see how it goes before building another. I have too many wedges. 🙂

That's what I am talking about, owning multiple drivers from the same current release year (SIM and Mavrik). That's the definition of belonging to CHA.

...and in an even more club ho move, I read your post last night about 1130pm. As if it was meant to be I had a tee time today at  True Blue, where the Dresser Academy is located, and he's the only PXG fitter within 100 miles of me. A normal person would have gotten there early and gotten fitted before ordering... not me though.  I placed my order (5-GW with the MMT regular over the phone after talking with the salesman first thing this morning... THEN I went and hit them. 🙄

Turns out the PXG guy and I got it right. 2* strong worked great at the range (it seems these have similar specs to PING G irons and I wanted the equivalent of their Power Specs). At the price PXG is selling these ($89.00 per club), heck, the MMC shafts sell for $60 each at Golf Works.

I'm so glad my demo with Sub 70 didn't work out (I'would've only been able to hit them in the KBS steel). I got a set of PXG's which will hold their value 10x better, I'd imagine, and I got to try them in every shaft!. 

Thank for the heads up! If we ever run into each other when I'm back up on the Island, the beer is on me!
