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

Was too lazy to pull the butt weight out of my Cleveland Halo XL 4 iron (yes, there is an actual butt weight in the butt end of the shaft), so just reshafted it with a Tensei AV Raw Blue hybrid shaft. Cleveland has a weird hosel size of 0.362", so I sanded down the 0.370" hybrid shaft to get the perfect fit.

I bought a new-to-me Sub70 939X 4H from @twyatt700. It arrives Friday and I have a tee time Sunday morning. Looking forward to letting it eat!

Whatever happened to the LAB?   I know you had a shaft issue and they said they would replace.   You still going to game a LAB or have you moved on and are now more into the exotic putter shafts?

maybe co-gamer? I know a rotation of putters is probably not optimal, but want to see if i get a little better distance control with a odyssey 1 WS blade.

Historically not enough, but starting to do about one session per week that is one hour in length, dedicated to putting and distance control.

One other thing to note about the LAB putter is that the static weight and head weight of it is much higher than any other putter that i have ever used. Because my putter is a 31", they jacked up the headweight to keep the swingweight in what they would consider a normal range, so the overall weight is 600 grams.

I weighed a 34" LAB putter and it comes in at 570 grams. And then I weighed an Odyssey blade just for reference and that came in at 550 grams.

We have a new contender in what has become a seemingly endless search for a set of irons that will relegate my Rogue X’s to a second bag I can keep up on Long Island.

It looks like I’ll be getting a set of PXG 0311 Gen3 XP irons dirty in about 2 weeks(?). 

@cksurfdude I’m going to give those MMT 60g shafts you have a try with these. I almost went with the 0211DC’s at $78 per with this shaft, but I went with what I think will be a more forgiving head in the XP. I can’t wait to see how this movie ends… 🤷‍♂️

Ha ha well I'll keep watching 😄

Fwiw .. and I'm very sure our swings are nowhere near alike .. but I'm happy with the lighter shafts.

Good luck with the latest new sticks!!

Found this lost puppy on the inventory shelf still in plastic at a great price.

Love this Tensei blue shaft, so had to get it.

Went to hit balls this morning and on my third ball with my 3 wood the face finally gave in. Was able to find an Epic Speed with the MMT 70x that I am sure will have the shaft pulled in short order for a Graphite Design that I have hanging around.

Nope. Still rocking my old school Ping B90 at 46”. I didn’t want to buy a 3 wood today and contemplated going with just a 5 wood for the near future.

Two dozen MaxFli Tour 2019 version for $45 at Golf Galaxy (+tax, free shipping). 

These seem to work nicely for me so at that price why not?

Also picked up a dozen Bridgestone prior version Tour B RX on sale and just one round so far but am liking these too!
