I picked up something to help on those tight driving holes that my often erratic driver puts me in the shrubbery. New Level Golf NLU-01 18*. A touch of color from a BB&F Co ferrule, a Kura Kage Black and a Golf Pride MCC +4 Align grip. Assembled by Jim McCleery at McGolf Custom Clubs.

Love the BBF&Co...nice touch.

I've wanted to buy nice looking ferrules, but given that i do my own club work, i haven't completely mastered the fine art of turning ferrules. I can get them flush, but if there is some small imperfection in my work with the nice ferrules, it will continue to bother me lol

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 forever...

Oh.. and I guess I'm committed to the bag.

Didn't buy anything today, but had all my irons and wedges spec'd out and bent back into the specs I was fit into.  Hadn't had them looked at since I got them almost 2 years ago. 

Most of the irons had gone flat over time, so had them bent back.

Love the idea - might have to do the same thing.

... jlukes on it as usual. If you play forged irons I think everyone should have their lofts/lies checked once a year. Either at the beginning or end of the year if you put your clubs away for winter. I have my own loft/lie machine and I am always amazed at how much specs change if you play a lot of golf. And if you have never had them checked it is an absolute must because coming from an OEM or off the shelf I can guarantee you that the lofts and lies are not on spec. I just received a Mizuno T20 58* wedge I ordered and it arrived at 57* and only 1* up instead of 2*. 

... When I was on staff with a major OEM I received irons with the 8 iron 1.5* strong and the 7 iron 1.5* weak so there was 1* of difference in loft. Had I not checked and adjusted them I would have been very confused as to why I was hitting my 8 and 7 very similar distances.

Found a great deal on these and will replace the G/Fore Gallivanters I had.  Footjoys are lighter and a bit more flexible, but with classic looks.

I haven’t been able to play for a couple of weeks because of back issues, but it looks like when I get back out there (hopefully next month) the top of my bag will look completely different.

Back in February, I ordered a Titleist TS2 16.5* 4 wood, and matching 19* & 21* TS2 hybrids, all with Kuro Kage shafts. They are going to finally arrive tomorrow, and I’m pretty excited.

I got a great deal on these through that DD place, but now I have a few decisions to make. I’m going to give the Epic Max a place in my bag, but I’m not sure whether or not to sell my old friend, the G400 Max. Same thing with my Rogue 3 wood (the best 15* I’ve ever owned). I’m leaning toward keeping both, especially the 3 wood, as this will be the first 4 wood I’ve ever gamed, and who knows?

I’m 99% going to sell my Rogue X hybrids (18, 20, 23) for the following reasons.

1. I’m loving my 0211 5 iron

2. The adjustability with the TS2’s should enable me to use two clubs in place of 3 (let’s say I go 19 & 22 or 18 & 21 for example).

I should probably just cut the cord with all of them, after all, there’s a reason I looked to replace them. Still it’s hard to do... this is me becoming attached to clubs I’ve had for about 4 years, and second thoughts about not having them around, I guess.

And let's just add to it for the day.....Going to give the RTX 4 wedges a try.  Happy with my current SM8 54* so that will go head to head.  

Do not love the Jaws MD5 58* that I have, but I do at least know my distances with it, so I'll put that head to head as well.  

Just found too good of deal on these.  3 wedges for $141 bucks in mint condition.  Sometimes being a Lefty can have it's perks.

Hmm. Now I may have to get that done also - my 8i seems strong and my 9i seems weak, ie. a larger than expected distance gapping. Hmmm.

Traded my DI for this oddity. Likely not holding onto it as I will likely get cash considerations in this three way trade.
