do you ever spin the clubs around like it shows in the video?

it looks like the grips snap into place at the bottom; any issue with grip size? thinking about something like a superstroke putter grip.

I really like the idea of this. Years ago I actually bought an insert on eBay from an Aus co. that had slots.

 

... The originals had a putter well, but not suited to over size grips and when they stopped including one I was not happy about tit, I am so glad to hear the 2021 version has one that accommodates big grips. I have always used a skinny type pistol grip so it isn't something I would ever use.

... I rarely spin the top when using my Zip remote cart but use it all the time in a riding cart. One of the design flaws is the top slot that holds the club in place rarely works for very long and the top of the shaft just pops back out. But the bottom does lock the grip into place so the club doesn't move around. One downside is you can't use leather grips with a end cap as the locking device in the bottom of the bag will destroy the end cap.

Picked up the Divot Board that Adam Young was promoting on black Friday which included a 6 month subscription to Next Level Golf. Adam sent me a note afterwards to confirm the subscription and gave me a bit of guidance reviewing the material and what areas he thought were most important which I thought was cool.

I am curious on the board. How loud is it when struck? Could be useful for swings in the house.

I think I'm having a bit of buyer's remorse...
(..there I said it!)

Earlier in the season I'd figured I needed a little more "help" with my wedge game so picked up a new CBX2 54*. I'd already replaced the Hogan Equalizer gap wedge when I got the PXG 0211 set; and then also swapped out the Equalizer 58 for an old Callaway Jaws 60* sitting around figuring it would help me get out of deep bunkers .. and the decided to grab a prior gen CBX 60 on sale...

Well...

Not so sure I'm loving the CBXs... May put the standard wedge 54 and 58 back in the bag and maybe play 2 balls side-by-side a few rounds.....

Bought this last week, but just came today. Stick Mobility sticks. Different than just a PVC stick, they are flexible. Feels really good doing the mobility movements with these things.

I understand completely. I went from MD3 wedges to CBX's, probably for the same reason you did... forgiveness.

Well it turned out I didn't notice any additional forgiveness, which would have been okay if I felt comfortable with them in all other areas. They were just wrong for me in too many ways, however. The shaft length of the 52* was as long as most PW's, and the heads looked too big to my eye. I also felt uncomfortable trying to open them up in a bunker.

Don't get me wrong, the CBX wedges are very good. They work well for a lot of players, I just like the look of a blade style wedge, it just feels like a more versatile club to me.

EDIT

BTW, I recently switched from a big, thick iron head (Rogue X) to the same PXG 0211 irons you also play. I bought the CBX to go with the Rouge X irons, and they felt big compared to those, they would've looked even bigger now next to the 0211's..

I don't know what irons you played before the PXG's, but the visual transition from your 0211 GW to the CBX has to be a tough one.

Enjoy!!! Nothing looks better than a Titleist wood... they just scream "class".

I just picked up some Cobra hybrids on the cheap, but what I really want is a set of 3 Titleist hybrids. They're soooo expensive though, I'm going to wait until I can get properly fitted for them. My hybrids are a crucial part of my bag (they're the clubs I hit best) and because the Titleist's are so expensive, I want to make sure everything is just right.

Thanks for the feedback on the CBXs!

Before the 0211s I had a set of Apex CF16s - switched to get a little more GI type iron but still with some feel. And that was an easy transition (plus lessons have helped!).

So I thought I'd make a parallel move with the wedges.

Yeah the CBXs are a bit chunky compared to traditional wedges but that doesn't really bother me (I don't think?) ... I'm primarily looking for the right tool for me for each slot in the bag...

I had the CF16's (loved them) then hit my friends Rogue X 7 iron. It went 15 yards longer than the CF16, and that was that, lol.

When I ordered the PXG's, I knew they wouldn't be as long, but I'm hoping for more accuracy (so far so good). I did have my lofts strengthened though. 1* in my 5&6, and 2* in the 7-GW.

My set goes 23*-48* instead of 24*-50* I don't know how much difference that actually makes, but I'm glad I did it. These irons go plenty high with the MMT shafts, even with the stronger lofts.

Definitely let us—well at least me—knkw how it goes with that after a few rounds.  I’m considering giving Arccos a 2nd chance in trying the Link.  

Recorded all but 1 stroke on my round yesterday: missed a 56 degree approach after I had entered a penalty stroke for hitting my tee shot into a river. Still records the occasional practice putting stroke, but I was impressed overall...
