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  

My Cobra F9 5 wood showed up today while I was at work. I haven't had a chance to hit it, yet, but I can't wait to get it to the range and the course.

Not strictly bought yet.... but I can see it happening after my fitting tonight (anything new and shiny does thr trick it seems) - a new TSi Driver and 3 wood. 🤣

Nice!  Let us know when you've hit it, I'm betting you're going to really like that shaft.

How do you feel about the clean crown/no alignment aid?

Picked up a new Callaway Epic Flash 21º 4H with Mitsubishi Tensei Silver shaft for $113.  

Now I need to find out how I like it and where it fits in my locker of hybrids.

 I'm putting an end to my "mallet experiment." I've been trying to get comfortable with an Evnroll 5.0 putter for about a month or so on the practice greens, but it just wasn't for me. I never got used to the look, the grip felt huge, and I struggled with distance control (always feeling like I had to work too hard to get it to the hole).

I went back to my comfort zone today, trading the Evnroll in under the PGASS playability for a Scotty Cameron Newport 2.0. I just feel more comfortable with a blade. I thought the extra  forgiveness a mallet might bring would help me, but I'm now 0-2 with them (I also gave a Cameron something or other neon monstrosity a brief try earlier this summer).

Putting is the best part of my game, and I have to stop messing around trying to fix what isn't broken. The Newport 2.0 putters have always been my favorite, and I'm hoping to ride this one for a long time.

I have two other putters I can't ever imagine getting rid of, the Odyssey Stroke Lab Double Wide (phenomenal putter) is plenty stable for when I want something different to mix it up, and my custom built Yes! Tracy has a permanent spot in my second bag I keep up on Long Island. Notice the trend? All 3 are variations of the Anser style putters... why do my eyes always wander? 🙄

Evnrolls are slower off the center of the face due to the groove technology so that the speed off the face on all portions of the face are about equal

I'm not trying to be a wise acre here, but isn't the idea supposed to be find the "true" sweet spot on a putter (ie. where it most resists twisting) and then try to hit the ball there? I get what you're saying, I just think it's a bit unnecessary. Do we really need it to feel the same over the entire face?

I've always had an affinity for the older Rife putters, in fact the original two bar might have been my favorite putter ever. I can't tell you how much I regret ever selling it. I don't mean to bash the ER5 here, it just didn't work for me. 

C'est la vie...

Definitely get what you are saying. I had an Evnroll too and thought it was slower off the face than any other putter.

It’s ridiculous. Hands down the best I’ve ever hit and I wasn’t swing all that fast. Average 97mph SS

Launching average 12, spin 2500, carry 245 total 272

Biggest surprise, smash factor was consistently 1.52. NEVER SEEN THAT BEFORE.

The lowest I saw was 1.47

This is going to be a great test!!!

Careful with smash factor. Obviously you saw improvement so the point is moot, but OEM's are tricking LM's with shapes and colors to increase smash. Ping doesn't even display it anymore.

Yep.

I was in the Myrtle Beach PGASS today, and I'm not exaggerating when I say they didn't have 100 LH clubs in the entire store, That includes drivers, FWs hybrids, wedges and putters, which is amazing for a store that size.

Tons of right handed stuff though.

I wanted to try the Titleist TS2 and the Ping 410 hybrids. The salesman told me Titleist stopped taking custom orders on the TS2 line yesterday, and I wouldn't get the Ping until after Christmas if I liked it.

He said I'd be better off just waiting until the new stuff starts coming out next year.

Maybe, but it was side by side with my Maverick SZ and ball speed, smash, carry all were improved. Also outside on a range hitting prov 1x and I saw it first hand. Heading to club champion tomorrow for a refit to confirm, but this thing is a beast
