What have you bought lately? (CHA - Club Ho's Anonymous)

I have not bought it, but I have a driving iron on my Christmas Wish List.  Hopefully on Christmas morning I can add one to my bag.

... Thanks. We should definitely hook up some time this winter. I was thinking of putting together a tee time for MGS members, not an outing just a chance for al of us to meet each other and play some golf at Aguila. With the cost of rounds in the $100-$250 range to take advantage of snowbirds, Aguila is my go to course at $23 twilite with a Sr city card.

... I am guessing DG in S+ wouldn't give me much information for my swing since I play Steelfiber 95's in R flex. It would be nice to eye ball the TS-1's in person though. I have never been happier with a set of irons as I am with these Cobra's but always nice to have a more forgiving distance set to go with my Z Blades on the other end of the forgiveness scale. 

Oh I'd definitely be down for a round with local spies! Aguila is about 30 min from me so definitely doable! 

As for the TS-1's I actually have them paired with PX Rifle 5.5's now but honestly they feel even stiffer than the DG's so that probably wouldn't be your cup of tea. 

Being that I just put together a 3rd set of clubs that I intend to use, I may be able to lend you a 7 iron head if you have stuff to build a club. I need to see how these new blades work out. Hopefully I can manage to find the center of the face. If so I'll definitely be happy to pull the head and let you borrow it.

Not sure I'd necessarily call this a "distance" set. Possibly more forgiving though with the tungsten slug in the toe. I see you're playing the MIM tours. looking at the loft specs, at the most the TS-1's are 1* stronger on some clubs and only .5* on others. I will admit that their lofting is a but unconventional though but still not overly strong by any means and they can be easily bent to make a distance set or match what you're playing now. 

that said, I believe I've found my 2022 irons in this ERG set that I just built so I can definitely lend out a head or 2 if you're interested in building yourself a demo. Who knows.. I may have a set of TS-1's being listed for sale here shortly (the ERG's are THAT good!).. but lets not get ahead of ourselves just yet 😛 

If you're interested, just shoot me a DM and we can meet up. If you don't have any materials, I can build one for you. Kuro Kage makes a pretty good and inexpensive shaft that they sell at Golf galaxy for $25 that I could pair it up with. They're 75g so not sure if that would be a good comparison or not.. but a R flex 75g would be a closer match than a 120g PX 5.5.

The box under the tree looks like it may contain the 52 and 56 degree Sub 70 286 Wedges I STRONGLY suggested I might like for Christmas.  

Recently, I picked up a UST Mamiya Helium Black 4 Graphite shaft and 8 gram slider weight for my Epic GBB driver.  Plan to do some "tinkering."

... Thanks for the offer but I have my own workshop. The thing is I have too many irons as it is now. 🤪  

King Tour MIM
Srizon Z Forged
Titleist T100S
TaylorMade P760
Cleveland 588TT
Lynx MC Tour forged irons

... But lets get together after the holidays in January and maybe some other MGS members can join us. I don't need to hit the TS-1s but I would love to see them in person.

I came about 10 seconds from walking out of a Roger Dunn with some lightly used ZX7's today with KBS $taper 120 shafts Standard length.  Price wasn't amazing, but it wasn't bad.  Figured I could pull and recover the $tapers, sell them, and re-shaft with the Elevate Tours I've come to love.

Two things stopped me -- the thought of being murdered by my lovely wife for buying another golf related item after she already got me a very awesome and pricey series of lessons for my Birthday and Christmas, and the fact that when I put the 8 iron on the swing weight scale it was a C5.  Other clubs were also in that range and very very light.  I thought maybe the scale was off so I put the demo 8 iron on and got the standard D3.  That's 8 points.  So by my math that's either 16 grams (drilled out?) out of the head & hosel or 40 grams of counterweighting on the butt end.  It didn't feel to me like the butt end was particularly heavy so I decided against.  Just kind of felt off.  Maybe I don't know enough about putting clubs together but with what I do know it didn't feel right to me.  In any case it saved me from making the purchase today.

Walking out I decided I'm not going to get the ZX7s or something similar (223?) until I can reward myself for getting firmly into the single digits (Arbitrarily aiming for 8).  That's 5.7 down from where I am now and between and 2-4 down from my best differentials in the 8 that count.  That should cool my jet's for a while.... I hope.

Something sounds off about the C5 swingweight if it was truly standard length unless it had an extra super jumbo grip on it. That's a lot of weight to take out of the hosel.

... Just be aware of a problem with Ecco shoes. They don't wear out. Partially my fault as I use the Ecco conditioner once a month. I bought 2 extra pairs off white Ecco Biom Hybrids to go with my black/brown/gray and original white Bioms. I bought the white ones as my first pair of Ecco's 3 winters ago and playing 5 times a week or so I figured they would wear out sooner rather than later as I use the white ones the majority of my rounds. A little cracking on the toe leather but still just as comfortable as the first day I put them on. I got caught in the rain this summer and they remain waterproof. They are looking a little ratty as the color has faded and they look lived in but again still perform as well as the very first day. Never thought I would want my shoes to wear out so I could use my new ones but that is where I seem to be. 

... So enjoy your uber comfortable Ecco shoes for the next gazillion years.
