Thinking I need some extra help with my iron game, I ordered a set of Tour Edge EXS 220H while they were on sale.

I am kind of a putter junkie and heard about some unique Odyssey putters that were available.  Picked up this Odyssey RSX Milled Collection #2.   Can't find much history or info as this model was never a retail release.    Putter is naked and Anser 2 style and not the Anser style like the RSX 001.     Have also seen pictures of 001s with no sightlines,  #7 style without line or dots on the topline, and different color Toulon.

I got one too!  I'm not the biggest fan of the 2 style compared to the 1 but since it's more rare I snatched one up.

Have to try to remember now. I believe it was: Tour B RX, Chrome Soft, Pro V1, Tour Response, Q Star Tour, Z Star, and Vice Pro.  Based on the limited testing I've been able to do, I would lean to the Z Star, Vice Pro, and Pro V1 in that order. I could play the Q Star Tour and not feel like I'm giving up a lot of performance, but it's realistically around the same price as the Vice Pro so there's no reason not to go with that if price is a factor. I haven't tried the Snell options yet and those will probably be the ones I put the winner up against for comparison. I honestly can't really explain why, but the Tour B RX and Chrome Soft just don't appeal to me. I have gotten a few weird reactions on some shots with those two. 

I would eventually like to try a Bridgestone ball as well but I have been able to play the Chromesoft, Snell MTB-X, Z Star XV and Left Dot. Biggest differences I noticed were the Chromesoft being noticeably softer (its nice but way down on my priorities list), all drives I hit with the Snell MTB-X seemed to be straighter (could be a coincidence but I didn't have one drive that was too far off the fairway), Z Star XV had less release for irons, and Left Dot definitely has a lower trajectory but FLEW when I got a hold of it. I honestly didn't dislike any of them but if you made me pick one out of those bunch right now, the Snell MTB-X felt great and it seemed like I was playing on the fairway way more often with it!

Going to do a epsom salt test, see what % of these balls actually only have "cosmetic defects that in no way affect performance" 

For those interested, I did this with a dozen of the Chromesoft and Chromesoft X outs, with each box there was 1 ball that had core centricity issues from the epsom salt test, and 1 ball that had some sort of noticeable cover deficiency (dent/scratch) that would lead me to not play them. The other 10 in both dozen would be balls I would play then, obviously limited sample size but not too bad for ~ half the cost of a brand new pack!

How bad were the centricity issues? I was reading on the epsom salt test, and the time the ball takes to return to "marked side" up could describe how badly out of center the core is.

I don't think that they were egregiously bad but the ball would smoothly return to the same spot up every time after using the index finger to lightly spin the ball floating. It wasn't abrupt but the ball would take a few spins afterwards and the sharpie dot I made would always return to the top. Good enough to knock around chipping in the yard or use on a water hole for fun but certainly wouldn't use them on holes that counted or for true putting practice.

I've eyeballed the Adidas hoodies several times, just don't know how well I'd like a pull over. Personally, I'm a huge fan of a full zip hoodie, doesn't choke me. You'll have to post a pic when it arrives.

I demo'ed a tice-used Garmin S10 during my round yesterday morning and then bought it for $100 (he had upgraded to one of the nicer Garmins with the color display). I should've bought one sooner.

I haven’t dropped in this neighborhood for a bit.  But did some tinkering on both ends of the bag. 
 

Titeist U505 3 iron-18 degree.  I was shocked at our fitting day how easy these were to hit.  I thought my ss would be to low.  But I was hitting it great with a nice high flight.  

Scotty Cameron Newport 2.5 from the market place on WRX.  Now that my iron play has really taken shape. My putting has let me down.  So I’m going full DJ switching from one style to a completely different style.  
 

TM MG3 56.12 in Black.  Gotta see how the Most Wanted winner is.   I tried it recently at a TM fitting day at our course.  It actually felt very good.   I went 56 Black because it was available immediately where some others were late October or November.

Well it’s not a true 3 iron OG. More like a crossover between an iron and hybrid.   We shall see if on course lives up to the demo. Or if that one had some secret sauce in it. Ha
