What Have You Bought Lately? (CHA - Club Ho's Anonymous)

Recommended Posts

Matera came today. I pulled the shaft and installed a different one because I wanted to save the Piretti Iomic grip and that was easier than trying to pull the grip.

 

I used black shrink tubing to make the shaft matte black and then installed a Superstroke 2.0 with the 50g counterweight. Not sure it will kick the #7 out of the bag, but it sure looks nice!

I hadn't thought about the black shrink tubing.  Interesting... I may have to try that out.  Thanks!

I've had the stuff quite a while, but hadn't tried it out until today.  I had the grip on the shaft pulled already so just slid it over the butt end and did the whole shaft.  Then one layer of tape for the grip and blew it on with air.  I used a heat gun to shrink it.

 

Here is the stuff I bought, I think I got 8' so I could have enough to do a few putters.  http://www.ebay.com/itm/16-0mm-5-8-Polyolefin-Heat-Shrink-Tubing-Tube-Sleeve-Wrap-BEST-DEAL-US-SHIP-/221353520127?var=&hash=item3389b2abff

PGA Superstore. Browse the used rack and you can find some good deals. Pro Platinum mid slant that someone cut to 33 inches. I needed it at 31.5 for my son so it was worth it. Little lead tape on the bottom and it plays great for him.

They've done away with out used putter rack I guess.  That or they put it somewhere not in the golf section.

Have a ton of back-ups in all categories, but there are always 14 clubs in the bag that differ depending on the course and set-up. Bomb and gouge. Yes, I'm a club gigolo.

I have the store manager texting me when something interesting comes in as a trade.  He gave me a heads up on a few nice putters that I picked up this year so far.  The Scotty for my son was just good timing since I am not sure it would have been on the rack for long at that price.  I actually picked up a Pro Platinum mid slant for myself later last year for about the same price.

I need to ask my friends that works there what's up with our used section.

 

That said I did pick up an original American Classic bullseye blade, a white hot 8 (Napa shape) and a Tuttle today for under $100 for projects to refinish.

Went to Sports Authority to check out it's going out of business sale. Lots of great deals on clubs but I don't need those, wanted balls but they didn't have anything that I would play left. I wasn't impressed with the bagprices yet but hit a homerun when I went to shoes. Bought a pair of footjoys and a pair of Nikes. I also nabbed 4 footjoy gloves and a bag of tees all for under $150.

 

I may go back to look at bags in a few weeks.

I could use a new bag; mine is getting a little shabby, but I haven't seen anything that catches my eye.  Bags just don't seem to change much.

I am in the market for a new driver shaft for my 915D3.  The Diamana that is in it is a bit much for me when my elbow flares up.  Have it narrowed down to an Oban Devotion 7 05 and a Kuro Kage Black TiNi 60x.

And I went another way and picked up a tour issue Matrix White Tie to try.  Hoping that this will help solve my issues off the tee when I am not 100%.

Last 3 clubs...816 DBD, XR16 3-wood, SM6 Raw 62.  The 816 DBD is incredible and a keeper for me.  the XR16 is nice, but not going to kick the 910Fd out of the bag, it will be up for sale.  The SM6 62 was a novelty, it is pretty sweet but need to gain confidence to hit it. 

 

I checked out a Sports Authority in Florida last week and it had 2 golf gloves...that was it for golf equipment.
