Did you go evenflow blue?

I actually went stock Evenflow Riptide CB to avoid a custom order.  Plus I like to build my own stuff so finding a shaft on my own and building it is part of the experience of new equipment for me.

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

Wife said if she sees another club coming with new born in tow, I should order a new mattress to sleep in the garage with the new clubs. I mean...I wouldn't have to hear a new born screaming so...*googles discount twin mattress*

That baby is another tax deduction which frees up some club money!!  Nice choices!

I ordered a pack of Birtees to use on the golf mat. It came with some of those white tees that stick through the bottom, but I can't hit off them to save my life. Part of it's having a curl in the mat where they stick through, the other part is I just can't stand them. That's the mental part of golf for you, we're mental.

I don't blame you one bit, I think I can honestly say I've quite literally never hit a single good drive off one of those rubber tees. I hate those things lol

OK as soon as you try it I have to know how the mat does.. I have been looking at the Accustrike, and if this works and last I might pick up one like you just got.. 

Ripped on the first bad swing. Might work good for chipping and partial swings... Not great with the 6 iron I tried.

Mine came with a short rubber tee that only lines up to the surface of the mat and I can place my normal tee into them.  Something else to consider for a more normal experience.  https://www.amazon.com/Rubber-Holder-Driving-Range-Counts/dp/B08GWTB3ZH/ref=sr_1_7?dchild=1&keywords=rubber+tee+to+hold+tee&qid=1612443149&sr=8-7

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.

Will be curious how that bag works. It's one of the very few with a completely flat top. If it works well on your push cart I'm all over it.

you're probably not wrong.... hahaha

I've been busy at work so I haven't gotten to "Test" my brother's 0811 XF on the sim yet... you know to make sure that the epoxy job was good and all before handing it off to him.  That is either going to fuel the fire or put it out completely I think.

I've got no issues with the Speedzone, and I don't expect much... I just have cabin fever pretty bad at this point... and all the new releases just look so good so kudos to the marketing teams. haha

FOMO is the worst thing ever.

That will be one of the first things I check.  I found the Speedzone Stand bag sat great in my push cart.  I'm not sure if there will be any trouble from the W shape of the formed plastic down the bottom of the top.  It should be tall enough to not be an issue.

Looks like I'm going to have to wait just a little longer to find out.  I emailed OGIO because my order was stuck at "being processed" to see what their backlog looked like.  I'm completely understanding of the delays warehouses are facing and I made sure to mention that in my message.  It's still listed as in-stock but I guess it was backorder and expected to ship on 2/10.  At last check all colors other than black were listed as 4-6 weeks and now show as sold out.

On the plus side they upgraded me to free overnight shipping for my troubles once its ready to ship.  I've got no issues with that!

Congrats on #3 - my wife and I have 3 as well and it's a great number.  

Also, great choice in clubs.   Are you tinkering around with most or did you get a fitting and you had several contenders? 

Not any true in-depth fittings for these clubs, just sampled at local big box stores. The Ping G425 LST 3W is the biggest question mark as they didn't have the shaft I was looking for but I'm willing to change out the shaft if it doesn't work. They had the Rogue White, didn't like it, and Tensei Orange, launched/spun too high, but I ordered the Tour 75 after talking with Ping Customer Service. 

The Glide 3.0s are just upgrades to my current gamers (Glide 2.0 Stealth). I do love the feel of the stealths and I don't expect that in the 3.0 but the performance when wet is what sold me. 

The Srixon will be a fun experiment. The Adams DHY has a sweet spot the size of a gnat's a$$ and I'd like something a little more forgiving off the tee. 

The Toulon is a 'well, this is the last hurrah so make it count' type purchase. I had a fitting at a Club Champion and the Ping Arna is by far the best fitted putter I've gamed, but I need a contender/equity in a club in case I need a new shaft for the Ping. 

The TSi3 all depends on 'slight of hand' and if my wife will notice if I don't go to the grocery store for two weeks. "Sorry babe, grocery store is out of stock on everything due to Covid. I know, it's the worst! Anyway, look at all this money we saved..."
