... How many ways can we say it? It isn't if it is when? Resistance is futile? Money only has value if you spend it? I have been lusting after a Graphite Design AD-IZ in SR flex (between stiff and regular) ever since my fitting last summer.  Ebay "make an offer" sucked me in but I made a low offer and the #*(!@$ guy accepted!  🙄  No m ore excuses for my driving but I have to decide do I want to put it in my LTDx Black Ltd Edition or my Stealth? Gonna compare either one to my Sim2 with an AD-MT SR flex. 



Picture 2 of 6

That sounds like an awesome shaft for either head.

... Thanks, I have demo'ed it in all 3 so I know it fits well with any of them. Now I have to see how they perform on the course when it counts.

Nothing. Bought nothing…

I have a challenge w my hybrids in that they go straight for the first 150 yards or so, and then make a big left turn. Put the blinkers on and turn sharp….

Anyway, with the Cobra challenge (lite) that just got posted, that sent me to their web site in a long time and I saw they have a new iteration of their one length hybrids.  So I called up my guy at Club Champion in WestDesMoines to see if he had any heads in, he did, and off I went. An hour and six or seven different shaft combos later I walked out w my original set of hybrids. 

Nothing had a tighter shot pattern/dispersion circle and nothing flew higher (second goal for stopping power).   Sort of happy.  Glad I didn’t just rush in somewhere to buy the off the rack clubs, but took the time to find out.   Gotta fix it w practice, can’t buy it. 
 

Side note, very interesting just how heavy the hybrid heads are without the shaft.

Isn’t it sort of blissful knowing that the current combo you have is the best combo compared to what you tested

Nothing crazy today, but I haven't felt comfortable over the putter in about a month.  Lots of advice from people, a good lesson from my instructor, and a decision to swap the skinny pistol grip out for the fat pistol.    At almost 50 grams heavier it's definitely changed the swing weight, but it feels tons more in control already.

Well, I figured after buying new irons I needed to check my gaps between them and my hybrids. I've noticed every time I hit them lately that they just aren't going as far as I thought they were. I'll be honest, they are the only clubs in the bag I didn't get fit for or even try, I just ordered them. Hopped on a GC Quad and got some numbers. Mizuno CLK 22 degree was averaging about 215 yards which falls between my 5 and 6 iron. Not good! I've been loving Cobra woods lately so figured I'd start there. Hit the LTDx 21 degree and the first ball was 243 yards. I figured it was a misread so I hit again. 242. Then again and it was 245. My miss with a hybrid is usually a little on the toe so I hit a couple out there just to test forgiveness and the ball still went 238 with very little draw to it. Needless to say I have one on the way, haha.

Yet…  I have this on-loan from a very nice gentleman some of you may know from around these parts.

Ping PLD Prime Tyne 4.  Early reaction is I am a big fan of the compactness of this fang shape.  Feels pretty good too.  I need to get a round on the books or visit a practice green soon to see if it can compete with the Evnroll ER2B.

Thats a nice pair o' putters!!  👍

I may have to give that putter another go and see how it performs, for I quickly judged it to be too small of a setup for my taste. 

Many times, I've come close to pulling the trigger on the PXG Bat Attack ... think there will eventually be a CHA post at some point.

Ordered a shaft for my UW since the first one I ordered never arrived. Hoping second time is a charm.

My new bag arrived and it’s loaded and ready. It’s a Ping Japan Exclusive CB-P226 Hoofer Cart Bag. It fits nicely on my Clicgear 3.5+ pushcart. Just getting used to the layout and where I keep everything. So far I’m very happy with it after playing 9 holes today. Feels well made and I love the Velcro panels as they allow me to display my unit patches. The little two pocket pouch is a great way to hold tees, ball markers a pitch mark repair tools.

Never arrived or may have never actually been shipped. All I know is I don’t have it so I moved onto option B.

Boat some new inserts for my walking shoes! I figure I have about a half of a season on them left so I’ll use them for range shoes after this year if finished up!
