JT uses a 10 degree head with the loft turned down to 9.25...............

I would be interested in what you may do related to the 196 gram head weight and shaft choice and playing length.

I have my TS3 dialed in for myself, added a few grams to the head weight, changed internal weight, no hot melt, and choke down from the too long for me at 45.5" overall length.

Hit the middle really often, and an absolute fairway finder for me, I just wish they didn't have the .5 degree heads with this model.

And way too much money for a TSi model to change at this time. 

I will definitely need to add some weight to the head as my sweet spot always seems to be in the 201-205 range without adapter. I’m gonna throw the Ventus TR 5s shaft in it to start as the couple rounds I have with it in the Mavrik SZ 💎 the kick seems to be timed just about perfect with my swing.  As for length I don’t see myself changing from the 44.5-44.75” but will probably try 45” to start with the lighter head. I haven’t trimmed the TR to the shorter length yet. Loft will be trickier as I’m playing the 8.5* 💎 at -2* with the green dot adapter so I’m guessing this 8* will be turned down too.  Luckily I don’t seem to have trouble with launch just spin. It’s gonna be a fun weekend that’s for sure.

Not a fan of the brand or the owner, but those don't look nearly as hideous as their other offerings. It'll be interesting to see how they fare against the T300s.

Yep interesting indeed.  Quick 9 hole jaunt today.  Shorter irons were very good 5-6 not so much.  But I rarely don’t usually hit a 5 anyway.  Just ordered it for easier resale 😏 and the only hit once.   Was truly thinking about playing the T300 in 6-7 and 211 in 8-G tomorow in my league match.   Ha 

In that league I mostly hit 8 on down on most holes.

What’s even more messed up is it shows processing at the ups store 1 hour from my house right now and I’m guessing it didn’t make the truck for delivery today. Should be here tomorrow though which I can still live with.  
Im doubting the refund will happen but will give it a shot if I don’t see it today.

Well I'm back at it. I recently picked up a Cobra F8 5-6 wood head. Yes it's older.. but my Cobra F6 3 wood is even older and still rips most fairway woods to bits. The F8+ driver was still one of my favorite drivers ever. 

I play Srixon F85 fairways from 2018 and there has been nothing before or since that has even come close to them. I had a 5 wood first cuz I struggled with 3 woods but picked one up this winter and it is amazing.   Fairway woods are such a personal club imo

Saw these in person in his office and they are very sharp looking clubs!  I wasn't a fan of trhe earlier generation of the PXG irons but these, I can see in my bag.  Although, I am sad to report the square footage occupied by clubs in his office is now sitting at 86%.  Any more purchases and he'll have to use a staff bag as an office chair🤣😂

That does surprise me; does that complete the list or are there still one or two more you haven’t tried?   I know there are some smaller boutique brands but does that cover all the major OEMs?   

@cnosil - I said the exact same thing to him yesterday - I think the only brands he hasn't tried are the Dick's owned brands, LOL😄

Well glad I could give some confirmation.  But you might want to give it some more time, especially when you read my experiences from today.  I want post here as it's OT, but here's a link to the thread.

This came in today.  Being on the Spornia Net review team.  I’m going to use this along with some RCT balls to get as good of data as I can on the new irons and drivers.

That's awesome Rob! I'm interested to see how it performs during the Spornia review and looking forward to seeing the improvements they've made to the net.

Goal of having a Ping dominant bag setup is complete. Ping tour van is in my area this week and my fitter got me a spot today. Told the fitter my preferred loft of 16-17° and what I got in my g400 fitting.

Goal was to get a hybrid to convert 210-220 range and a fw to cover 230+.

After about 10 swings with my 8i I jumped into the fitting. We started with 5w with Ping tour 75g 3w shaft set to 16.5°, everything was looking good so we moved on to hybrid and the trackman spot opened up. 3h with Ping tour 85g was working well. Tried smoke black but wasn’t my cup of tea. Was getting 215-220 carry with Ping shaft and ball speed in mid-upper 130s.

jumped back to 5w after a few swing turned it down to 16. Got 147 ball speed and 245 carry. 
 

2-3 weeks for order to be in hopefully.

Well, after surgery all I can really do is putt right now, so why not a new putter? Night have to sell my Scotty Cameron Phantom X 6 after this!
