Since we don't have a "What are you thing about NOT buying" thread, I'll post this here.

My game is suddenly in shambles. I'm thinking of calling PXG Monday and canceling my iron set and putter. Really down on myself right now.... anybody have some cheese for my whine? LOL. 

I would say that if you're going to play bad, you should at least look good doing it.

Honmas arrived. More pics in my fitting thread

To follow up on one of my teases from the other day. PXG Proto X 9 degree Evenflow Blue 5.5  

Yesterday evening. Me: Hears 17yo daughter pick up package from front door. “What did we get?” 17yo:  I don’t know, I didn’t order anything. Me: Looks at wife and we simultaneously say

I can tell you that we have all been there.  I'm been there a couple of times this year.  It will quickly come back.  I consider @silver & black the poster child for coming back from the shambles.  I'm not sure what he did, but the turnaround was amazing.  

Sometimes we need to just make a change in equipment, and new irons and putter may do the trick.  Think positive!!

My new SIM Max D is now my old driver, and say hello to my little friend!

Mavric sub Zero !!

hahaI don't know what crawled up my uhhh pants leg, because the SIM was a solid fairway finder, really solid. BUT, it wasn't any longer that my Ping G400LST. And that club was already a fairway finder. SOOOOOoooooo, Enter the MAV... we shall see if its longer as I have quite a few holes where Ive hit numerous solid drives, and I'll know if Im longer rather quickly.

I think you’ll like it.  I had the MAX-D earlier this year snd it didn’t work for what i wanted.  I’ve had the Sub Zero in the bag—-alternating with the Cobra SZ Extreme—for about a month now.  It’s been very good.

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.

I’m glad you said Multiple and not TWO 🤣🤣

Think I am slowing getting my wife on board with golf purchases. Driver for father's day and superspeed golf for the birthday maybe wedges for Christmas? Don't want to get too ahead of myself yet though.

My most recent golf purchases have been a little light lately. Bamboo tees, a Birdiecorn ball mark repair tool, and a Bettinardi Veteran Golf Association towel.

Played in a scramble yesterday with a guy that had the Sim Max D driver.  I hit it a few times into a field while we were waiting on the tee. Distance wise it was hard to judge but the flight was really nice. I have been struggling with the Proto X the last few rounds so today I traded it for a Sim Max. It isn’t the D version but it may stem the tide for the rest of the season. Especially with the odds being that I have less than a month left of it.

Let us know if you see right misses with the SIM Max.

Will do. I sure hope I don’t.  Everything was a nice baby draw with the D version so I’m hoping at worst it will straighten that out. While some golfers prefer to eliminate the left side of the course, I prefer to eliminate the right.  I’m guessing the D version was what I should have went with but a straight up trade and a diminishing season sealed the deal.

There is a pretty long WRX thread about the SIM and SIM Max being fade biased. I have been tinkering to try to reduce the fade bias, just need it to be slightly less fade biased. Once in a while will hit a big push fade so far right that I wonder where that came from.

@yungkory - you still having the right miss with the SIM Max?

Well that isn’t what I want to hear as that is usually my miss. I have worked hard the last couple years at eliminating the slice that plaqued me for years. Now the big push fade comes into play when I get lazy.

Just ordered some Spyguy tee shirts from the main site in black and olive green. They're running a flash sale at $10 a piece for the next few hours and I couldn't turn it down. I did have to make two separate orders as ordering two in one order for the price up to $17.50 each. Glitch, maybe? Been wanting a MyGolfSpy tee for a while and finally got a couple.

I was talking to Harry today when I was buying mine; yes it is nice to be able to buy in person,  and he thought it was supposed to be $10 off.   I showed him the twitter post so I just paid $10.  He also mentioned that it was only supposed to be for one with discounts on other purchases.  Sounds like you worked around the system.

They look like really great shirts and I got pretty excited about them. Hopefully Harry won't put me in timeout for gaming the system. 😁

I wish they had the winter hats in-stock. Getting ready for the colder weather.

I love the look of those and I hope they get more like them in. I regret not buying one of those when they came out.
