What have you bought lately? (CHA - Club Ho's Anonymous)

Lol, yes but I have to sell them to buy more. 

Once I get my golf workshop in order I want to start buying and selling even more products. Buy used fit them out and resell. Maybe even start doing repairs for clients.  There are so few club repair guys around I think my little hobby could pay for itself and buy me a lunch  or a bourbon once in a while...

Bought the Srixon ZX utility 4 iron after trying it the other day.  Has some pop to it, but still within the distance window I'm looking for.  The two biggest things are that it is very easy to hit and mishits were still carrying a distance that I feel comfortable with and secondly I knew exactly what the ball was going to do.  A few pulls but mostly the fade that I have come to expect.

Got to the store to have the tip installed on my brother’s new driver shaft today.  
Looks reaaallll nice.. I sure hope I don’t lose it somewhere along the way to deliver it to him.

I also got a good look at the OGIO Woode bag I ordered... I think it’s going to work out really nice.  The internal dividers basically mimic the top, so the 4 wood slots are not sharing the same internal space as the 4 irons slots to the right which I originally feared they might.  They’re not fully boxed, as the sides are only anchored internally at the top and bottom, but they seem good enough that shafts shouldn’t move around the outside into another area (I know probably way more than anyone but me cares to read about the internal configuration of dividers... so if you read all that, thank you).
Colors look good in person.  I feel the Gray and Orange is not as bold as it looks in the photos... but in the sun I can see it popping.

Expanding on this, I bought the same shoes I bought 4 years ago because they released. Addiction is a real thing!

Nice. One thing I learned years ago is to always compliment a lady on her shoes, and you’ve got a nice sense of style, so it’s easy to do with you.

From the pictures you’ve shown, and the stories you’ve told, that’s a fun group of women you play with.

Well thank you! You made my day! And yes we do have fun.

Got a message back from a guy at Pros Choice and while not 100% confirmed, he believes it to be counterfeit due to the sticker looking label on the butt end. I say that cuz it isn’t a sticker it seems to be part of the shaft.  Even without it being 100% confirmed I’m sending it back. Can’t take that chance with such a high dollar shaft. 
 

Now to find another one!

Ouch, sorry to hear that. I've mostly given up on eBay at this point - there are a few sellers I still trust, but I've seen quite a few sketchy looking high-end golf products, and got burned by a set of counterfeit grips last year. eBay claims to care but doesn't seem to make it a high priority to fight the counterfeit golf biz (to be fair, they need to balance this across all industries, and some of the golf stuff is relatively low priced). 

I'll still search eBay for older / out of production stuff, but for my gamers and recent releases, I now stick with direct manufacturers and trusted, authorized sellers. The cost ends up a bit higher and it makes me buy fewer toys, but the increased level of trust feels worth the cost.

So there is a facebook group for Hole 9 and they release is actually one day earlier for members in the facebook group, at least in the past. Now they changed the policy to only give 15 minutes extra time for members in the facebook group to purchase rather than 24 hours

A little less feel than my normal mizuno mp 18 irons, but still gives you some feedback.  It's forged which helps feel, but it does have hollow construction which dampens that a bit.  Compared it against the previous U85 and I got better numbers all around: ball speed, spin, height, and dispersion.  Not a huge difference in looks, but a bit more compact I suppose with more flowing lines.

Compared to the Mizuno HMB 4 iron, I'd say a little less feel, but more forgiveness by a mile.  Even small mishits, I was getting nearly 195 - 198 carry and around 208 - 210 with a well struck shot.  I also have more confidence compared to the HMB - it's sole and topline are a bit bigger but the width of the iron is still fairly compact. 

It also helped me to get the ball more airborne, which I need.  Still had no issue to hit a bit of a "stinger" as well although mine don't look as cool as Gary Woodland's or Tiger's.

Once it arrives, I'll add anything else that I notice.

No worries here as I have no upcoming plans for getting some numbers. I will say though visual it is a huge upgrade from the Gen2 and Proto X for me. Deeper face than the Gen2 and sits right between the 2 in footprint at address. 
 
Oh wait no it sucks!

There is just something fun about leaving work know there is a package waiting for you at home. 

I have to admit PXG does presentation right.  A cool PXG black box wrapped in black plastic for protection. Inside the box is an envelope containing stickers and my extra weights I ordered. 

I will start with the head cover as it isn't leather but not plastic feeling either(2017 TM M2). The magnet inside the head cover for attaching it to the cart when teeing off is a cool touch. The lettering feels like a vinyl.  This isn't my favorite version but it isn't terrible either. 

The club head itself is exactly what I was looking for. Same deep face with a slightly larger footprint front to back than the Proto X. I have heard comments comparing it to the Ping G and I would say that is fairly close but a deeper face. It is definitely smaller to my eye than the Gen2 0811X.  Sets up square in the standard setting and not terrifyingly open in the small minus setting.   From a personal visual perspective it is almost perfect. The only thing missing is a front weight to complement the back one for launch/spin adjustment. 

 

The price right now is $249 and that is an absolute steal in my book. Now some pics for those screaming let me see it!
