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

Not a club, but I just placed an order for the Arccos Caddie Link. I recently started a golf only Instagram and would like to utilize my phone on the course without wasting a bunch of time retrieving my phone, switching apps, and mounting it to a tripod or something. I'm excited to get it and see how it performs compared to using the phone app. I've heard a lot of positives from current Link users.

I am curious to give it a whirl maybe after another year of arccos data if I get tired of the phone in and out of the pocket

How much did I like the 2021 0211 irons the first time I played them on Wednesday?

I did something tonight I haven’t done since I bought my first set of irons... I just ordered the set matching SW and LW. 

Im not sure how the MMT70s will work in them, they’ll be lighter than the DG in my Vokeys, but at my age I’m thinking that might be a good thing? Either way it will be a fun experiment.

if they don’t work out, it’s not the end of the world. The total cost including tax and that damn $60 shipping fee was $160 after I used a $115 credit PXG gave me when they lowered the pricing after I ordered my irons. (Ironically, they raised it right back up a week later, go figure....)

They do have the 30 day return policy, but I’m obviously hoping I won’t be using it.

I love mine when I remember to charge it. I still check my phone to make sure club registered between holes.

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!

These were sitting at $50 on eBay with the auction expiring, so I picked them up. 3-PW all in pretty much this same condition and playable cord grips. Should be fun to try.

Yeah, I played them for the first time yesterday, 18 holes irons only. Was only around 45 degrees outside when I started, so that was probably a mistake. Got them somewhat figured out by the end of the round though!

I mentioned this in another thread, but wanted to talk about this here. I asked my wife for a Grooveit brush for Christmas and it arrived today. They were on back order, so I don't mind the wait as this is a very in demand item. 

20210205_180439-01.jpeg

I was initially very impressed with the build quality, the bristles are nice and the magnet is very strong. Then I filled it up and tried it. Let's just say I'm very disappointed. The pump isn't working properly and it takes a lot of effort getting water to come out. I'm talking holding it in one hand and whacking it with the other to get any significant amount to come out. 

I'm going to video it and send an email to the makers of the brush to see if I can either get another one or a refund.

Made a few purchases recently:

IMG_6279.jpg.3b3b56a967b54356c062e66df5ac70e7.jpgIMG_6280.jpg.19167080904ab8e5b600e62a6481ee88.jpg

SM8s in a 54 S Grind with 10 degrees of bounce, and a 60 M Grind, 8 degrees of bounce.  Except the 54 is bent weak to 55, so 11 degrees of bounce, and the 60 is bent strong to 59, so 7 degrees of bounce.  First time with a black finish; I lay the face open a lot greenside and the morning glare from my last set of wedges drove me crazy.

Also, picked up some more speed training tools:

IMG_6281.jpg.2ceb2e9107644d484623330cc98f0402.jpgIMG_6283.jpg.7352d95f12d01e2aa379af5a21afe73b.jpgIMG_6282.jpg.a796cdb2187e4f3e6a2ae63c68792272.jpg

Should have had the PRGR all along, but finally took the plunge on it since I'm going to try to squeak more speed out of hands and arms with the C Club.  With the new ones out the PRGR is going for $99 on Amazon.

So I was telling my wife this morning that I was thinking about buying your old driver. She said "$100? Tell him $90 and a back rub. Of course the back rub comes from you, not me."

Here's the video showing the problem I'm having with the Grooveit brush, I think I've got a bad water bottle or something isn't sealing right in the lid. I can tighten it down and get a little better flow but still not as much as shown in their videos.
