Any update on when the most wanted driver 2024 article will be out? Looking to buy a new driver soon and just wanted to read it before going to get fitted. 

Testing is complete,  they have been putting the data together and taking pictures of the winners.   I would expect the article to be out in 2-3 weeks.

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!!

Well long time no see to this forum and golf in general. My last round of golf resulted in pulling my groin, that kept me from playing or even walking around much at the end of last season. On top of that winter has been long so there has not been a start to the current season for me.

On a happier note scrolling through the Ebay's I found something that brought me right back to golf. I was able to pick up a Cobra Aerojet Max 3 Wood (Head Only) which will be here on Saturday to replace my current LTDx Max. I also saved up my pennies and bought a fitted Cobra King Tec 3 Hybrid with a custom KBS Hybrid Prototype Shaft that will be here in the next week due to it being a custom factory order. I am excited to get this season started and try out my new toys.

So I have a bunch of things to add soon, but for starters, I wanna shoutout PRG Golf for their awesome head covers that don’t cost a fortune and are high quality. 

image.png.2a487d8a6270f68c1e084216c65223c0.png

I’m from Kentucky, but live in San Antonio. So I’m a Louisville fan.

I cheer for the Yankees because growing up in Kentucky in the 90’s, we had no local team, so I gravitated to the only team I could regularly find on TV, the Yankees.

The Valhalla head cover is for 2 reasons:

1. The only major I’ve ever been to was a practice round at the 2000 PGA Championship (GO TIGER)

2. It’s tied with the Masters as my favorite major. The best field every year, on courses that are not as difficult at the US Open, but not as easy as the Open. It’s such an underrated event.

I’d like to add a Masters mallet cover sometime, but I’d prefer to do that in person, rather than have someone get it for me.

My new JB Forged 58° wedge from Sub70 arrived yesterday and my initial impressions are….wow!! Great looking club in my opinion. Hit a few foam balls into the chipping net in the basement and hoping to get out in the next couple days to at least hit some balls at the range.

Curious about your feedback. I am in the market and have looked at these a few times.

Seems every manufacturer is moving into the "milled " market in some way or another.  I like it!  As long as they don't affect performance...

I recently bought some used clubs. I got a TM 3 wood and a 3 hybrid. Also got a new wedge (Callaway Jaws Raw). I haven't had much success with woods/hybrids so wanted to test these out. I also bought an 18* utility iron, but it unfortunately had a cracked sole so am returning it. Can't wait to test them out when the weather breaks. Went from beautiful day with a record high temp of 73* on Tuesday (2/27) to ~30* and snowing last night/today (Wednesday/Thursday) - so we got that going for us. 

Golfing for fun.

That is a great looking wedge, Sub70 is no slouch in the aesthetic department that is for sure.

Recently picked up and old school Graffaloy Pro Launch Platinum shaft for my Sim Max driver, just to mess around with and I kid you not I was getting better numbers with it than the upgraded Ventus i already had. Launch was incredible, tightened up my dispersion and kept the spin perfectly around 2200. Really goes to show that just because something is new doesn't mean that its automatically going to be better for you. Ill be sticking with this thing for a while.

Bought a new shaft and grip, a SteelFiber p125 graphite shaft and Garsen Quad Tour Taper. Those with more golf knowledge than me may have already realized my error lol.

Nevertheless, I took all the parts into my local proshop and asked if they could put it together for me. They are happy to do it, BUT a graphite shaft like this has too small of an internal diameter to install on an "over the post" type hosel (opposed to a plumber's neck), well lesson learned. While they wont go together currently, he said we don't have to give up on the shaft because they make an adaptor that will make it work. Will report back once it's all together.

Adapter finally showed up, and got this project complete. Introducing Frankenstein's Monster 🧟‍♂️!

Adapter came out a lot cleaner looking than I was expecting. Have only rolled a few putts so far, but the extra weight/length and smaller grip feels fantastic.

@BreakfastBall15 admittedly, can't take credit for the build. Have to thank my local pro! He did a great job, and adapter + work was under $50.
