decided to give "Temu" a try... I'm cautiously optimistic (car thing is for wife's new car... just in case she gets the package first 😉 

they seem to have a lot of - what I'll call - golf trinkets, for a decent price.

I’m looking at getting a new shaft for my Mizuno FliHi 3i. It currently has a HZRDUS Black shaft and was thinking of going with a Ventus blue or black. Do they make Ventus shafts that would work for this?

 

Titleist offers both Ventus Blue and Black for their Utility build irons, so that likely means you have options in the after market. Looks like Mizuno lists a couple Blues on their site too. Titleist:Screenshot_20240226-213533.png.9cce1522e242894cc89a9cbdf82e468f.png

Nice find. Hadn’t looked at their website. Do you think those are hybrid club shafts versus 5 wood or 7 wood shafts?

Been wanting to try TRUE Links golf shoes; again a sale, so again I pull the trigger. Word of advice: READ all the literature. Received these very quickly, tried them on (ordered the size I always wear) and they were too small. Huh… Start figuring out a return/exchange process and notice a SMALL link to “What Size Should I Order?” Hmmm… Anyway, they note that the shoes run small, and you should order a 1/2 to a full size larger than normal. So, after a few emails back and forth with their EXCELLENT customer service, a new pair is on the way in a different (and hopefully correct) size.

Good tip, I have been wanting to pick up a pair of these as well and hope to in the near future. I'll keep the sizing in mind.

I have a few of the older gen Fli-Hi's and I absolutely love them. I'm running long iron steel shafts in mine. Might have to look at going graphite

I love mine but I've never liked the feel of the HZRDUS shaft. Had one in a driver too that I got rid of for the Ventus Blue. Alos like the Tensei White as well so might look into that option.

I got the tensi white in the PXG hybrid I just picked up. Looking forward to giving it a rip

They're Hybrid -- look specifically for the Ventus HB: https://fujikuragolf.com/hybrids/ventus-hybrid?v=f24485ae434a  I was gonna say I don't know anything about the tips to fit your specific club, but that link addresses it (specifically calls out something for club builders to fit it into long irons -- I only do grips, leave the real building up to the professionals). What's fun about finding this latest link...Titleist's upcharge is $225, but MSRP is only $200 (others don't have that same price discrepancy, like the Graphite Designs I use in my long irons are MSRP $290, Titleist upcharge $130 -- it's a wild pricing game across this industry). 

Now...why did I know so quickly that Titleist had this option?? Maybe you'll find out tonight what's waiting on my doorstep right now 💸  (preview: it's not a Ventus, but I did see it along the way).

First post on here guys and girls so learning how everything works! I’m in the U.K. and recently picked up the Mizuno STG Driver and Fairway actually as a sweepstake prize. I game a Paradym triple diamond driver that I really really like so, my friend has the STG driver a 4 handicap and loves it, replaced his Stealth. 
I had a Callaway epic flash in the bag for a few years and have always been a fan of callaway woods. I really think Mizuno have got it right with these fairways , sound feel spin has really been such a fantastic fit for me and such a good looking clean classic looking club at address. Highly recommend checking these out if you’re in the market for a fairway!!
