... an old school trick about pop hopping a putter

@Kenny B and I have been to separate Monte Scheinblum clinics where's that's one of the on course / around the greens tips he shows you .. can be very useful in the right situation!!

Maybe that's there to help straighten out your swing. Thanks for the laugh!

Maybe it's a revolutionary training aid that only the seller knows about?

Widening the stance for longer drives? 

I mean.. in the picture, her swing coach seems to approve of whatever technique it's meant for...🤨

Picked up this guy for a trade. Got rid of a 60° wedge that's been doing me wrong so I think I traded up. It's the other guy's problem now! 😜

Was fit for this shaft when I was looking at the Cobra RadSpeed last year. I ended up getting the Mizuno ST-Z and the Blue was not an option so it's been on my mind. Can't wait to get the tip on and plug this in. 

Can't say I'm too impressed with whoever put the grip on though. We'll see how long my OCD can put up with it.

Ordered a combo set of Srixon ZX5 and ZX7 irons yesterday. I am a Mizuno iron fanboy and have never hit anything that I liked as much as them, but I tried these for the first time last week and after putting them head to head against mine I couldn't turn them down. Really could've gone with ZX7 only but the ZX5 irons for the 5 and 6 iron were so good. Same thin-ish topline for both sets and they're pretty compact which I have been missing since going from MP's to JPX.

If I were buying on looks alone at address, I would have done the same exact as you.  I couldn’t love the (subjective) feel as much as you but my goodness the shape is perfection.

Which shafts did you select?

I have the same combo set and love them, I almost wish I just did the SX7's through out the whole set, or at least to the 5 and leave the 4 alone.  I was fit into the Modus 105 and haven't had any issues.

The feel obviously wasn't like my Mizuno's but in the ZX7 it was close. I stuck with my trusty Project X LZ 6.0 shafts. Thankfully they had them in stock and should have my clubs built within a week! The last time I bought another iron that I liked I was back to my Mizuno's in a couple months but I think I'll be sticking with these for a while. If not I'll get an entire set of JPX 921 Tours with no 921 Forged unless it's the 4 and 5 iron.

Paid $50 to keep the demo Sub70 849D I had been trying out. At least the head was brand new when I got it, so it worked out to be a total price of $250.

Finally the GG near me got Z-Star Diamond in, so I went and grabbed a dozen. Ballnamic recommended this for me with 4 separate data sets so let's see if it's any better than the regular Z.

PXG 0211 3H with PX Cypher 50g in 5.0 flex .. finding I'm liking lighter, and slightly more flexy, shafts (eg. vs a 60g 5.5).

This one has a really nice solid whack when you catch it right, and seems to be pretty easy to hit. Been struggling to reliably hit a FW .. 5W or 7W .. reliably so for now 😉 this is my "long" (non-tee) club.

Same shaft I have in my Callaway driver, 3W, HeavenWood, and 9W.  Seems to fit my swing pretty well.

I have it in my 4H, and 5-DW. I’m liking it a lot more than the MMT shafts I had in my PXGs.

@cksurfdude Here’s a little secret about that Cypher 50… the 5.0 isn’t 50g, it’s 59g. The 5.5 is 61g and the 6.0 is 62g. First time I saw that online, I thought it was a misprint, but it was confirmed to me by PXG and Cleveland sales reps.

BTW if you’re enjoying the lighter more flexible shafts, when you have a chance, demo a driver with either the Distanza, Bassara or nvs orange in A flex. They’re all around 42-45g.

I gained a little over 20 yards carry down here below sea level just by switching from regular flex Alta to a Distanza in my G425.
