I almost pulled the trigger in a 10.5 sim2, fujikura 6s? Shaft today. Private Driving range was having a demo clearance sale to make room for all the 2024 clubs. $199. I just couldn't justify the extra (frivolous) spending to the lady boss if I did. They also had some PXG 0311? Drivers marked down to 200. These were all demo clubs, so they have been abused, but the sim2 looked great, and I was hitting 240 consistently. 

@Rob Person I play the SIM2 MAX 9* , I cut it down if I remember correctly 1 1/4 inches from the butt end only, also added a counter balance weight of 30grams to the butt end, tightened my dispersion and gained a few yards. I love it

 

 

I also bought some new iron covers, found these to be the best ones, no club chatter and prevents dings very well. They are a small company I came across a few years ago.

You may want to check Dicks sporting goods, demo clubs might find one cheap and in mint condition.. here's the link for the demos.

Has anyone picked up the new PXG Black Ops driver? Watching the TXG driver bracket videos on YouTube. It looks like an accurate beast!

Yes and I love it. I have the standard and they are doing the tour in the bracket challenge. I previously gamed the 0311 Gen 5XF and the black ops is miles better. I’m currently writing an unofficial review on it. I think PXG has found something here that can play with the big boys

I’ll 2nd checking Dicks/Golf Galaxy. Found a mint LTDx 105. That I lowered to 9* there last weekend in mint condition for $139. Global Golf and other stores have them at $190 still. Some of the demo clubs are priced a bit high but trade ins there you can really score some solid deals on

I’ve got a bad reeling about this

Yeah looks great and he hits it well I cannot hit Cobra woods at all but it sure looks great. They tend to punish low on the face hits and my normal strike is a bit low

It really looks that way. I am intrigued and will continue watch the TXG driver bracket to see if it wins. It blew the Ping out of the water.

I really enjoy their videos but Ian has such a good repeatable swing so I take that for what it’s worth. But this driver is the best one I’ve ever hit. PXG is going the black ops challenge right so it’s a free fitting

Well, in a completely different post I was talking about different irons. I went and hit the Mizuno 225’s, Taylormade P790’s, and Srixon ZX5’s. Was not impressed with the Srixon irons for some reason. With how the Taylormade and Mizuno irons felt I knew I was torn between them. I left where I had hit those and started home and decided to stop in at the golf Store in Yorktown. They had a brand new plastic still on the irons 225’s. I bit the bullet and traded my PXG irons in for the 225’s. I won’t be buying any sort of irons for a good while now. Wedges, maybe we will talk

I hit the PXG Black Ops and like every other PXG club I've ever hit I loathed the thing my numbers didn't come close and when you look at the robot testing the Ping destroyed it. I like the Ping alot but along with almost all but robot testing it's a personal prefernce

The other issue with this review is that exact take that it had "Blown the PING out of the water" when the data with one guys swing actually was quite close but I will refer to the amount of unpaid guys on tour hitting the G430 MAX 10K VS the "thing that blew it out of the water" I wonder why the numbers for the PING on tour are so lopsided if this PXG is so great????
