Thanks. Not expecting these shafts to be a miracle for me, just hoping they are easier on the body than steel shafts.

I suspect you'll love them  Everything I've seen and heard speaks to their stability.  I've only hit them a couple times on a range with a buddies set.  Tough to draw any conclusions but it definitely sparked my curiosity. They are light though...I would think a good custom fit is important to make sure swing weights are where they should be.

Honmas arrived. More pics in my fitting thread

I've had the bag for a couple weeks and did an "unofficial" review on it. I decided to give it some ink. If you're gonna get a tattoo, make sure that it means something and that you can live with it

I play the Nippon 950GH Neos, which are 98 grams, so the Steelfiber i95s are in the right class for me.

... Just a word of caution, the Steelfiber 95's play almost a whole flex stiffer than their stated flex for most. I have played 950GH in S-Flex and the Steelfiber 95 R-Flex is definitely stouter than the S-Flex Nippons. You may want to soft step them a couple times. I am playing Steelfiber 95's in R-Flex and they are a great fit for me. Hit my 7 iron 165 for reference. Of course it isn't how far or how fast but how you hit far or fast. I have a smooth swing and a harder hitter may have different results.

Yeah, i am thinking about soft stepping them. Since these are parallel tip shafts, if I want to softstep twice, for my 5 iron, i should tip trim the amount recommended for the 3 iron, correct?

Pulled the trigger on a Down Under Board. The new "pro" model that's adjustable and can accommodate flared feet.

It's normally something I'd DIY, but I want it now. Too lazy to make a trip to Home Depot...

I really struggle with proper lower body rotation in my swing. Always searching for something that provides the right feelings to make my practice time more valuable.

I'm really excited to have them built up! I got the KBS $ Taper's, stiff. If I'm lucky I might be able to hit them outdoors this weekend!

Picked up a couple midsize Golf Pride Z Grips for my TS3 3 & 4h.

ZGrip.jpg.59b271bc1905d6e022d83b30fb8d412a.jpg

Haven't played a full cord before but I like the look and feel so far.

When I ordered the hybrids I asked for Tour Velvets, and they came in with MCC Align grips on them.  I got them through a friend who helped me get a serious discount, but that friend thought he was doing me a favor by "upgrading" the grips.  Nice thought, except when you adjust the hosel that whole "align" thing is no longer aligned!  Got the Z Grips swapped in at no charge so all good.

I got what I think is a good a good deal from of all places, the PGASS.

I've been looking to get hybrids to go with my 0211's, but I didn't want to spend the $200-275 new ones go for now. Well, the Superstore has the Cobra F9's on sale for $119 each. This is $50 cheaper than anywhere else for some reason. I went in yesterday and hit a used one, and liked it. This morning I planned on ordering the 3&4, but then decided at that price to get the 5 also. This used up almost all my gift card balances, but I'm thinking a 5 hybrid will be fun to mess around with. Not to mention, I'll have the 90 day playability, so why not?

When I recently changed my irons, I kept my Rogue X hybrids in the bag. That was never going to be permanent however, as the plan was to keep a second set up on Long Island, and I want them to stay with my Rogue X irons. I also have two MD 4 wedges and Yes! Tracy putter in that 2nd bag already, so I'm getting there LOL.

filling two bags is a serious chore. i’m just about done setting up my “main” or “home” bag and am starting to realize i need a setup for when i’m down in florida. 

i’ll likely do that in much the same way you are - hunting around for bargains and putting it together piece meal. that’ll be the bag i experiment with some club choices on as well.

It really hasn't been much of a hassle (kind of fun actually), and fairly painless to my wallet. I loved the setup I had prior to getting the PXG irons, so I've been taking my time looking for the stuff I want to put in a bag with them.

It's been easy doing it like this because I still like my "old" clubs, and have no desire to sell them yet.... it would be a lot more stressful if I hated them, and felt like I had to change them quickly. 

This just came down to a perfect storm of having won or been gifted a ton of PGASS gift cards, and getting bored with looking at the same stuff in the bag. When when I heard about the discounted pricing PXG has been offering, I took a flyer on the 0211's and the MMT shafts at $89 per. Once I knew they were keepers, I started burning the gift cards on new wedges, a Scotty and now the hybrids.

That's a great deal on the Cobras, and if they're anything like the fairways you'll be in for a treat. They're easy to launch from amt lie and they go for days. Congrats!

Srixon ZX 5 JDM irons on the way, open box. 5 - PW, Nippon 950GH Stiff (basically the same shaft as I play now). 

Did I pay a premium to get them early? Actually, no, i got them on a BF deal for lower than clearance price ZX 585 sets are going for.
