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  

Posted Images

The PXG isn't working for you?

Hasn’t all season. The one club I got fit for that I actually really don’t care for. I don’t like that it launches so darn flat and hot. I like a three wood that launches high that I can knock down when I need to.

The long awaited new putter is here. 
It had no cover, so order one from etsy.

..,. I just wanted to add that many are chasing nirvana numbers with their drivers searching for that high launch low spin combo. And if you have the club head speed it is certainly a worthwhile goal but more than a few, especially older players are not generating enough spin with their drivers. My fitting was producing around 1800-1900 spin and at around 95 mph that is not enough to maximize my distance. I will say I have never felt like I can swing indoors like I do on the course and the yardages bore this out with my normal 160yd 7 iron consistently registering 145-147, but some patterns were undeniable. Dropping to a R Flex with a softer tip with the SIM Max compared to my lower spin Xtreme, I got my spin numbers up top 2400 and was carrying the ball 15-20 yds longer with equal role out. 

... So I would advise everyone to know their swing tendencies before trying out a new low spin head or low spin shaft when you may actually need the opposite. We obviously have some young studs on MGS that do need less spin so of course there is no one size fits all and as many here advise, if you have not been fit, it would be in your best interest to do so.

... I was a little surprised that my fitter says he has more clients that need more spin the those he fits that need less spin. And not only driver, but irons as well.

Its a bit surprising but makes sense. There are the “WRX” folks that hit everything over 300 yards carry that need a rebar shaft to lower spin LOL, but that is a small proportion of total golfers. Then there are the heel slicers that need less spin i guess. Then there is everyone else who can probably use a bit more spin because we dont have tour level swing speeds.

For me, i picked high launch/high spin iron shafts to help me get both launch and spin up. Driver i still need to get that figured out, but i tend to launch low and spin too low (high toe miss), resulting in drives that get out there from roll on a dry day but not so far when the fairway is wet.

Good point. Even is high swing speed guys need to adapt to the new equipment. I am playing my PXG 0811x at 10.5* compared to the 9* I played in my TS3 and Epic Flash SZ. The overall numbers with the PXG looked great on the LM but I can’t play golf with a driver that spins at 1700 RPMs. I wouldn’t keep it on the planet.

You have to see how they perform before you dismiss them. Maybe they will beat out the Vokeys.

Agree that you should at least try them out, even if they don't beat out the Vokeys you could post an "Unofficial Review" here with your findings and experiences with them.

Interested to hear your feedback after you get a few sessions with it

Only used it a couple of times so far, but it is pretty good. Laser stays very visible, even in well lit areas. The tripod works well as it keeps it above the putter head so you are able to have it behind you. One thing that it does that I am having trouble incorporating is that when you remove it from tripod you can set it against putter face to check alignment. My issue is that it is hard to set putter head, keep it there and then move laser to face

Bonus season! Company had it's best year ever and with that my wallet grows. So I am going to go big! Full TPI golf evaluation and a half day putting experience. Should be super informative. Not until December but will do a write up when complete.

Taking advantage of the PXG sale. Have had a great experience with the driver I got early in the year so I'm going for the gen 2 irons now. Never thought I'd be a PXG guy , but the prices are good, and where I'm at it's the only way to get a real fitting done.
