In case anyone is keeping score....

The HMB arrived yesterday while I was at the course.  

Playing today, it will be coming with me.  🙂

HMB update...

It was obvious to the naked eye, this club was a little upright.  It was also 40.75" long with a rather large grip.  Took it to local 2nd Swing shop to have them adjust it, it was 62* lie.  Just a bit up.  LOL

Aaaaaand...

After trying one owned by a friend, I bought an Orange Whip before playing yesterday.  I think it'll get some use this winter...

it doesn't fit most push carts. The bag was touted as being designed specifically for the push cart

 

... I went through that for years with my Mottocaddy's and MGI remote carts. Nothing seemed to fit on the bottom and it was always a little wobbly going over uneven terrain. A couple times I hit a hole, sprinkler head grown over with grass or drainage ditch and the cart twisted off the cart. Very frustrating. I finally bought the MGI bag that is "designed specifically for MGI carts" and it locks into place at the base and the difference is huge. Great find and good luck with your set up!

yeah I'm excited to use it and see how it really performs on the course. Not having to worry about adjusting half way through or worry about the bag completely coming off is a pretty big deal. @chisag you know how nice it's starting to get here so walking rounds are extremely anticipated. 

What's super strange about the Titleist bag is that the base where the legs connect is about 1" wider than most other bags. Standard seems to be about 6" and this one's 7". Sure it might offer better support when using the stands,  but the insert section on the collar of most carts is just over 6". How Titleist missed this design queue is completely beyond me. It's not like Titleist has their own push cart and has a need to design a different setup to force people to buy their cart.

New to the forum, may as well jump in.

TLDR: New putter to play with!

I saw an Axis1 commercial on YouTube earlier this year, and I've been wanting to try one ever since (newly diving back into golf, had never heard of them before). Doing some digging, I see that there are a lot of golfers out there that view Axis1 putters as over-priced, ugly gimmicks. I see it differently, though, and find a lot of appeal to the design. It makes sense, and IMHO the weird look is fine...there's often great beauty in the space where form follows function. Might have something to do with my being a mechanical engineer.

At any rate, I didn't have the golf budget for a new one. I figured I'd wait through the winter to save up the golf allowance pennies, and if the Axis1 itch was still there, get a brand new one of their lower priced models. Meanwhile, I've been on the lookout on eBay. Happily, a used Umbra model recently came up that fit the budget, and it arrived two days ago. I'll get it on the golf course in two days (likely in the rain). In the meantime, I've been giving it a workout on 3-7 footers in my living room. The feel and distance control are a pretty big switch, mainly because my current putter has a soft face insert and this Umbra doesn't.

The living room putts are leaving a good impression. I can take a lighter grip, which is taking some getting used to, but I think will be better in the long run. Looking down on it at address, I like what I see. Knowing why it looks like it does actually seems to promote confidence in my little brain, so the hosel hasn't bothered me at all thus far. We'll see if that holds once I've got it on a real green. I'm also curious to see how I do with it on distance control for longer putts.

So now I'm looking forward to Friday's round just a bit more than I normally would.

As mentioned before I was look for new irons and the just arrived. Found a great deal on a set of Mizuno JPX 919 Hot Metal Pro irons that I had re-shafted by @dlow206 and Bort Golf with Fuji Pro Tour Spec 115 Stiff graphite irons, thanks to a virtual fit with TXG. Oh boy do these look great. I love the just slightly larger head of the HMP than my i500s in the 5 and 6, but are about the same in the short irons, plus the offset is very minimal which is great. If anyone wants some more forgiveness with less offset, then you need to give these a serious look. Also great to work with @dlow206 getting a great price of the shafts in doing quick quality work.

Hit them in the net straight away and love the feel of the shafts, though the 4 iron is not one I will be using, bit otherwise very pleased. Hoping to get the spin down a bit with this move as well, so will be sure to share GC Quad numbers when I get on one next.

I haven't been as active around here as much as I'd like recently, so maybe I missed this...

Did you detail your virtual fit with TXG anywhere? Curious what led you to the Fuji Pros? When I started looking at graphite in early 2019 they were one of my first stops. The weight range is about perfect for me, as is bend profile. I think I ultimately went with MMTs because they are .355 and I didn't want to bother with tip trimming...

I'll let @ejgaudette address the fitting part, but want to talk about 0.355" taper tip part. Taper tips definitely require less work, especially when we are talking about 0.355" heads. And taper tips are constant weight, so there is that aspect. I like parallel tip shafts because it offers more flexibility to play with the flex based on tip trim amount. But they are more work because you also have to sand down from 0.370" to fit 0.355" hosels, and that requires a decent amount of work, even with a belt sander.

A while back I posted a review on the Titleist Hybrid 14 bag that I got. It's been one of the best riding/stand bags that I've ever owned but with a MAJOR flaw that we all kind of discovered together, was that it doesn't fit most push carts. 

 

 

 

Man someone else is dealing with this issue! I have a nice titleist bag and it doesn’t fit either. I have to rig it a certain way to make it ride. Thought I was doing something wrong somehow.

So I have not had a chance to document that as things have been busier at work, and my wife and I just welcomed our third child into the world a couple months ago now. It was good I had some GC Quad numbers to help make some choices. I mostly called about the shaft choice as I found a good deal on the HMP irons. MMTs where the other option but it came down to a cost decision since the MMTs were $30 more per shaft than the Fuji. They felt both would be a good fit with my goal to drop some spin without dropping much else in the numbers as the ball speed and other numbers were not bad, I just tend to not deloft the club as much. I am hoping to write something up about this all soon.

Sorry to be That Guy, but I guess I'm doing it anyway...

Not all taper tips are constant weight.  And not all parallel tip shafts are not constant weight.  A good example from Ye Olde Days is the original Rifle shaft; the parallel and tapered models were both taken from the same blanks, tipped to frequency, and they would stage the tips for the tapered shafts.

Going the other way, Nippon makes .370 versions of several of their Modus shafts, which are all constant weight.  I'm not 100% positive, but their 950/1050/1150 shafts may also be constant weight in parallel.

/end nitpicking

BagBoy Nitron

 I found this on OfferUp in lightly used (9/10) condition for about half the price of a new one. The brackets not only fit but they happen to wrap around the arms on each side and the bag just doesn't budge. I probably don't even need the straps but they'll be useful for that extra bit of support. 

Good buy! Really happy with my BB Quad XL.

FYI - the top bracket on the Bag Boy carts feature what they call "Top Lok" where the molding is designed to, well, 'lock in' stand bag arms .. or bags that have Top Lok (including Datrek).

Sorry to be That Guy, but I guess I'm doing it anyway...

Not all taper tips are constant weight.  And not all parallel tip shafts are not constant weight.  A good example from Ye Olde Days is the original Rifle shaft; the parallel and tapered models were both taken from the same blanks, tipped to frequency, and they would stage the tips for the tapered shafts.

Going the other way, Nippon makes .370 versions of several of their Modus shafts, which are all constant weight.  I'm not 100% positive, but their 950/1050/1150 shafts may also be constant weight in parallel.

/end nitpicking

 

Yes, thats true, I was making a broad generalization, but there are instances where that is not the case. Accra also has constant weight shafts with parallel tips.

Pulled the trigger on a dozen ProV1x RCT balls for indoor practice with the Mevo+.

Pricey, but if it removes the need for a metallic dot indoors, it'll be worth it. My initial testing today with the Mevo+ indoors resulted in several estimated spin reads, even with the metallic dot.
