Those look good Rob! I love Ray-Ban frames, I've had them in the last couple of pairs of glasses and sunglasses I've gotten. Let us know how they work out for you. 

Thanks!  Yeah, I've been partial to RayBan over the years as well, just very classic good looking frames. 

 One of the things the optician...who get this his name is Rory and he's a golfer..ha  and I spent some time talking about was the lens color.  He asked about what kind of sunny days do we have, which knd of sounds odd, but then when he talked about out there in Carlsbad, it's a bright full sun every day they go with darker lens.  Whcih made me realize here we have more of a hazy sunshine a lot since it's so humid there is a lot of moisture in the air so it's not as clear and full sun like CA, which I remember from being out there.  He said he has more customers on the East Coast ordering the Rose Tint for that exact reason vs a darker black tint.   In the short trial outside, they definitely provided enough protection and blocking of the sun.  

Would love to get out tomorrow afternoon, but we will see.

I was curious about the tint, so thank you for explaining that. It looks pretty cool, too. I wasn't sure if it was something that might help you track the ball better, or something else.

So as September came close to an end I had FSA money left and really nothing to spend it on.  So I did what I was always tempted to do and went against my original eye Dr’s recommendation and ordered a pair of Single Vison prescription.  And would take my chances on things like reading a scorecard etc.   

Well they came in today and not only look great snd feel so much lighter they worked great on the range. No horrible fat contact. At least none that I could blame on the prescription. I definitely can’t wait to get out and try them on course and give an all around test.   
 

But I'm very happy with the results and looks as well. 
 

SportRX can’t be beat to work with.  Their opticians and experts were extremely helpful in selecting the style, size frame and specs.   Uploading my Script was very easy.

Yep 70 pounds.  A combination of being in the hospital for 8 days with COVID (December/January) and discovering your AIC is 11.4 while you're there.   Kind of wakes you up and makes you make some changes.  I think I have gained about 8 pounds of it back since April, coming into the office every day and eating a bit more than I did for the first few months, but trying to maintain where I am now.

Yeah, I meant to explain that in the first post and got called away.  It was nice to have that in-depth of discussion with him, definitely a Sunglass fitting 🙂    I only hit some 6 irons on the range and I could track them just fine. Unfortunately that's only about 140 yards 🙂     We'll see what happens with the driver all the way out there at 200 to 210...ha

Great on the 70lbs!!  11.4 A1C is definitely something to change!! I’m sure you got that down to manageable level.

Yep in my 3 and 6 month follow ups it was below 6 which is where the Dr. wanted to see it

cutting out the 5-6 Pepsi’s and 4 to 5 chocolate chip cookies a day  helped.😁

I like them, they work well with the one plane swing system that i am working on. I don't even have big hands, but still like them.

I received my Evnroll ER2 Thursday that I ordered from @dlow206 and I'm a happy camper! Eric not only provides excellent customer service, he has knowledge to assist in selecting proper options for a correct fit.  Needless to say I would like to thank him and give him the well deserved attaboy he deserves.  If you're looking for a putter or whatever, you might want to run it by Eric first. 😉

Second this got a BGT putter shaft from @dlow206 and was great answered all my questions about the install and fitting.

Long story short, had to make two separate orders and do a return, took longer than I wanted, but they are now installed. Nippon Modus3 Tour 120 in the irons and Modus3 Wedge 115 in the wedges. Very happy with them. Also ordered the MGS headcover yesterday to go on my new driver. 20211015_230332.jpg.b19e5dd311404afa5d72da865a2b9265.jpg20211015_230336.jpg.84bc4942c1b8e625cbf5340cb3772dbd.jpg
