There’s a battle for a spot in my bag!

The Speedzone Hybrid will be trying to retain its spot against this lovely TSi3.

Sort of going in blind, but it was too good of a deal and if it doesn’t work for me or @Lacassem it will find a new home. 

Nice buy,  I don't like the Speedzone's chances here...you're going to be able to tweak and dial in that adjustable TSi3 and not have to worry about the hybrid lefts anymore!

It’s off to a great start. Took it to the course with no practice and hit it a few times including one that I needed to hit a high cut to get back to the fairway/green after a pulled drive. I started it exactly on the line I wanted and actually sent it just short and right of the green.

Hzrdus smoke black RDX 80s.  There’s a good chance I’m going to swap it over to the KBS hybrid Proto 85s that was in the Speedzone. So far that one seems to mesh better with my swing, but I need some range time to see about that.

Looks great...I gave up trying to buy these on release days, even with Apple Pay I wasn't quick enough.  

Sealed or not, enjoy it man!

The Mizuno ST-X is on the way. Local guy about 40 minutes from me is a Mizuno component dealer. Sent him a message and he put together a new head, adapter, and 5g of hot melt forward/neutral for what used full clubs are going for. Just wish I had time to go get it. He is gonna ship it to me since I can’t get over there unfortunately. 

And now a decision to make. Local guy made a mistake and sent me a ST-Z instead of a ST-X.  It is brand new with hotmelt. He doesn't have any ST-X heads in stock so do I take this one back to him and wait for the X or say screw it and play the Z to see how it works?  If it doesn't work I should be able to trade it for an X but without the hotmelt. I'm torn!

Did he give it a draw bias to make it play similarly to the Z?

I'd ask if you could give it a couple swings with some tape to see if you like it or love it.

No he put the hotmelt neutral.  I talked to him and he said it would be 5-6 weeks for a Z. Looks like I'm just gonna hit this amazing looking thing and see how it goes.

@fozcycle First of all... Know that we are here for you, we love you and this is a safe place. You need to separate yourself from your temptations... You can send me all the clubs that are causing you any feelings of distress no questions asked. Second, you should look for a sponsor to help you whenever you need some advise/guidance. For example, my Wife is my sponsor. Whenever she sees that I am on any troubling sites like RockBottomGolf, CallowayGolfPreowned, GolfWorks, eBay etc. She talks me down and tells me to think about my loved ones... Usually my wallet. Feel free to message me anytime. 

Matt

I am trying very hard to accept the things I can’t change….golf equipment spending. I just always thought the more clubs you had the better you play…..guess I got that wrong.  I am mindful of the steps you have laid out for me. However I don’t think they will work. BTW. did you see the new club listings on ebay?…..

They are definitely good looking clubs. I picked up a new Tensei 1K 50s shaft to throw in it.
