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

It isn't something I have purchased, but received 5 new Arccos sensors in the mail today! I had gone through and re-calibrated my sesnors (I normally do each season) and had 4 that for sure were not working and a 5th that was suspect. A quick email to Arccos and they sent me out 5 new ones to put in. Keeping in mind I bought these sensors close to 2 years ago and it was really no fuss whatsoever I am really impressed and just can't wait to get out and start recording some rounds.

Their customer support is awsome. They sent me 1 for my 4 iron no questions asked a few weeks back after re-pairing. My 3W isnt picking up shots right now either so I may be sending another email. 5⭐ for their CS.

That's awesome. I just got an offer a few days ago to get 5 new ones for $40 (after shipping). Not sure if that was just an offer to everyone, or if they actually read my recent post-round feedback or just sensed that mine were getting old (started using them back in 2017) -- either way, it's not a bad price for replacements after 4 years, especially considering I never needed to pay yearly for Caddie.

Honestly I would have expected your numbers to be higher!  How long have you had these putters, or how long does one tend to stay in the bag before you demo something else?

NeverCompromise #2 15 years, just can't seem to give that one up

PING Tyne 4-2 years

TM My Spider X 1 year

Scotty Cameron Phantom X 11.5  Since last week

In actuality it's really 2 in the rotation right now, I love the NC but haven't putted with it much other than some at home practice on the ExPutt last year.  It's more of a nostalgia thing. 

Generally they last longer than irons or drivers, but there are so many putters out there right now that I putt well with, it's a toss up. The PING or Spider, I could take either one out and feel very confident with it. The 11.5 I'm sure will be the same, I just haven't taken it out for a round yet.

Exotics David Glod Tour Series Putter Black Finish

To deliver the ultimate in feel and touch, the putters are entirely CNC milled from a solid block of carbon steel. The milled X-grip face pattern provides unprecedented feel and control on the green and reduces skidding. The responsive, pure feel and feedback of the face design translates to incredible accuracy and touch. In addition, each putter has a hand-rolled leading edge ensuring that each stroke glides smoothly through the ball, even in the longer grass on the fringe.

Plus, the five tour-inspired designs feature a high-toe profile which eliminates the tendency to raise the toe at address, causing putts to go left of the hole. Further enhancing the setup, the Exotics David Glod Tour Series putters feature a True Temper stepless steel shaft that provides a clean appearance at address and a responsive feel.

SPEEDZONE Big Tour Fairway

The SPEEDZONE Big Tour fairway features a larger shape, a stronger loft, forward weighting, and near zero CG to create the best combination of high launch and low spin to deliver extreme distance.

Whoa! Those exotics putters look interesting. I’d give one a roll to see how they feel. But the ER2B isn’t going anywhere in my bag. I rolled In putts of   16, 21, 24, and 26 feet at blissful on Sunday. I just love this distance control I have with that one. 
 

I didnt hit the big tour fairway at my fitting. Are you thinking of having that replace your current fairway or more of a strategic tee club?

Plan is to replace the current fwy - Cobra F7 set to 15*

this is a 13.5 degree.
Looking for an off the tee club that doesn't go quite as far as driver and a club to use from the fw to reach par 5 in 2.

We'll see how it works... getting delivered today.

I'm technically at 12 putters, but "only 6 count" (i.e. I'd likely only game 6 of them, even though 9-10 are technically course-ready). 6 of them have some tie to Guerin Rife - have loved his designs since the original Rife, and feel semi-loyal (loyalty climbed when I sent a question about authenticity of a Guerin Tour Spec a couple years ago, and he personally responded to explain the slight differences I was seeing). The list:

  • 3 are more novelty (father-in-law's vintage garage sale find, a Golf Gods ****, and a Gilmore)
  • 2 are nostalgic (Tour Model 1520 that was my first near-adult-sized putter; original Rife 2Bar)
  • 1 I need to get rid of (Ping Sigma G Tyne that was a laughable raffle prize in a scramble last year - came used and possibly damaged 😂 need to verify lie/loft before trying to sell)
  • 3 EVNRolls: ER5B, ER10, and a Tour Stroke Blade (gameable, but technically a trainer)
  • 2 Guerin Tour Spec: 1 mallet and 1 blade
  • 1 Mizuno M-Craft II Blue Ion (posted here a couple weeks ago)

Shoes...I actually walked over to the golf corner of my basement to count, then walked away - I kinda don't want to know. Similar to putters, I have a few that didn't work for me that I need to offload, I just haven't done it yet.

I had a Never Compromise Sub 30 S2 since HS/college (don't remember the year, but somewhere in the early '00s) -- I just let a friend take it off my hands a couple months back. It was really hard to let that one go.

I’d say n + 2 as you can always use one more putter but 2 more is too many. 😂

I just got back from Dicks after picking up a SuperPoke 3.0 for my Tommy Armour Impact No. 2 Wide Blade.  I also bagged a Ping 2021 Fetch Putter.   Putter hoism is alive and well! 💣  I've been trying putters and then selling them on Marketplace to cover some of my hoism costs. 

I love the Fetch... One day I will own one. It is such a awesome putter and love everything from the adjustability in length, to the grip, feel and shape.

Epic Speed 4W (16.5*) with Project X Cypher 50

Been looking at this for a while and finally just walked into the store and grabbed one OTR (and finally used the generous gift card from my honey from Christmas). Brought Mrs. Surfdude along for us to look at ladies' SGI sets - which we really did (REALLY!!) - and then being the good spouse/golf partner she is she went browsing and picked up a few new clothes in fun Spring colors for herself 🙂 

So I chose the Speed head over the Max as this has a slightly taller face, and I pretty much only use this club off the tee. Interestingly the stock length is the same as the 3W, but my thinking is I can always use a little more loft .. especially if I ever start to try to hit the thing from an actual fairway. And I can trim, say, 1/4-1/2" if I change grips from the stock Tour Velvet Align (not sure if I like it). 

It got its first trial run yesterday, and while my ball striking was kinda meh this club + shaft combo definitely wants to send the ball .. there's a nice Jailbreak-assist pop off the face, even at my moderate swing speed, and the shaft feels nice and smooth with a little kick at impact, also really helping launch the ball. 

* Recommendation to other moderate swing speed or other starting-to-get-a-little-older dudes -- try the PX Cypher!!!

Footjoy hyper flex shoes. Saw they were the most comfortable of the 21 spiked shoes and had some other high markings so I’ll give them a nice shot.
