Hi,  I am new to club collecting, re selling.  I found this club in a lot I bought on Facebook marketplace but can find no information on it?   Can anyone offer any insight on it?  I’ve never seen a club with a B marking on it….  Also, is there any value to it?   Thanks

That’s a knockoff TM Burner model.  I think the ‘B’ was some kind of wedge.  As the image above suggests, very limited value.

Got a lag shot 7 iron on eBay for $53 after shipping. Also got a larger putter grip today that feels better with a new grip I have been using.

I've been very happy with my lag shot 7 iron and have noticed improved ball striking since practicing with it

Those royal grips look great. I tried the non chord version a while back and found they wore quickly, Im assuming the chorded version will be more firm and long lasting. Let me know as I like the looks and torn between those and the superstroke chorded or some discontinued lamkin gen3. Currently using Champ C6

It's great having some average swing speed analysis on here to show how these items react and to see how forgiving they are dependent on that. I'm in St Augustine so it's great to see the Florida connection also!

Yeah I'm curious about the longevity as well. I've never been a fan of corded grips because they're usually too firm and tear up my delicate hands 😜. I read that these actual felt softer than most and seem to hold up well. 

So far I can confirm that they're definitely quite comfy for a cord. I immediately ordered another set for my TS4's and woods. Time will tell

Just got a Gen 1 Accra TZ6 for a pretty good deal on eBay. I was curious to try this as it is marketed as a high launch low spin shaft the same as my Graphite Design AD DI. But the profiles on these are very different. Once I get it in and ready to use I plan to start thread on my comparison between them.

I haven’t bought it yet but a guy has a Optishot 2 with 5x3 hitting mat for $280. It looks like it hasn’t been used much. My question is it worth it?  I’m retired and money is the main factor, but the rate the quality of simulators has increased I want to get the best bang for my buck. At this point I am saving for the Rapsoto. The reason I say saving is I have to get a new roof this spring so simulator money is what I squirrel away without my wife knowing. lol. Any advise would be greatly appreciated. IMG_2775.jpeg.b78b0b011210fecc8e114f82a8171db1.jpeg

You have to answer some questions for yourself first.

Do you want ball data? Spin, launch angle, ball speed? Then no this is not for you.

Do you want to play courses use the driving range and get club data? Path swing speed. Not have to pay yearly subscription fees. Then yes this is for you.

I have the Optishot2 and have a Mevo unit behind it so I can get all the data. 
You will also have to replace the top turf on the Optishot unit as I can see it’s the original and it is way to thin. You feel like you are hitting hard plastic and you thing you are going to bust it. I got the Jag Man Joe replacement and that’s another $100 but well worth it.

I have been looking at the Optishot Orbit which is the new model which gives you all the bells and whistles, 20 courses and no yearly fees.

Thanks for the feedback.

Picked up a pair of those Adidas S2G spikeless on sale - thanks MGS! (Connor?).

Took a slight gamble and ordered 1/2 size smaller based on other Adidas golf shoes I've had, and it worked out (whew). A touch snug in the toe on the right side but a shoe stretcher will take care of that.

The sole looks like it has good grip and they feel pretty stable - tested them out on the garage! 😄

Purchasing my new wedges one at a time.  Bought the first one in 50 degrees. Trying to figure out if I want to go 50,54,58 or 50,56,60 .

Good luck with those! Very happy with my CBX wedges .. if and when I replace them I'll be looking at the CBX Zipcore or whatever the then current model is.

Pics say a 1000 words, But the pics don’t give it justice for Scotty’s custom shop did a fantastic job.

This TEI has been in my basement for 15years screaming for a refurb and I always kept putting it off to next year. Well, next year finally arrived.

I’ve been fighting cancer, slowly improving. I’m a lucky hacker.

Just received my bottle of Chalkless grip enhancer. It's been a very wet winter season in Florida. Soon it will be sweaty hand season down here. This stuff seems pretty awesome and I cannot wait to give it a true test.

Gone a bit crazy as of late. 
 

I gave my old ping i25 set to my high school aged son, and was fitted for new Mizzuno 932 hot metal irons. Also bought a few new closeout model clubs. First, a cobra king tech 3 hybrid (which is a joy to hit) and some new RTX Ziocore wedges. 
 

Also, the big news is I am building a garage sim with 9x12 screen enclosure from Carls using a bushel launch pro and 5 Star gorilla mat.

I will let everyone know. I want to see if it is better than the Steadfast shafts I have. I like them and was impressed with their new found quality unlike years in the past. I am a little worried about the torque and that Newton recommended the 4 dot (I am right on the top end of the 4 dot and I like a stiffer shaft. (NO JOKES PLEASE LOL)). Although they did say they would switch it out. Also, I don't know if they put a grip on it, but I have one and like a mid size. I told them that as well. We shall see!!!

I could play golf every day and learn something new each round.
