Nice. have you bent clubs before?

No, but I have a practice one to have a go on. I'm also going to buy a brass jaw bending bar to minimise marring.

There's almost no spare parts I can get for it but I think I can get some brass rollers for the top jaw, again, to minimise marring.

my general thoughts on bending irons:

  • carbon steel - easy peezy
  • 431 stainless - not as easy as carbon, but still very bendable
  • Mizuno chromoly - harder to bend than 431, but still not bad
  • 17-4 - i hate my life when trying to bend 17-4 irons

Not all 17-4 irons are created equally, with some being more bendable than others, like Ping having that notch helps, and also how the steel is heat treated. even within one model of irons, i experienced variability in bendability between the irons in a set.

Just ordered a Callaway Rogue 5H to replace a TM M6 hybrid.  Took advantage of Callaway's trade-in +50% offer.  The Callaway is 23* and the TM was 25*.  Distance with the TM was too close to my 6i.  

Also, my new pair of HyperFlex shoes arrived today (makes for my 3rd pair -- these were charcoal to go with my blue pair (fairly new) and my gray pair (the oldest pair of the 3)).  These are last year's models and are on sale at Footjoy before the newer models arrive.  This shoe is the best fitting golf shoe that I've ever put on my feet.  I ordered a pair of Tour Alpha's, but they just didn't feel right on my left foot, even though it was a wide shoe, like I wear with the HyperFlex.

Finally used a DSG gift card … got 2 dzn of Callaway Chrome Soft X LS and FJ Pro SL. 

Excited to try out the Callaways, but my goodness the Pro SLs are incredible.

Have always been a Nike guy for my narrow feet with a high arch (but their current lineup of shoes makes it feel like I’m an additional 2 inches off the ground, no bueno) … but these FJs are comfortable, flat to the ground and they simply do not give, at all. There’s not even the slightest bit of twisting or movement with them during my swing.

Was in the Arkansas Golf Shop today so my wife could hit some demo hybrids and irons and recommendations.  She's currently playing some senior shaft Adams hybrids and irons but I'm thinking that, although she needs the longer length than standard ladies irons, they're too heavy and not enough flex for her slower swing.  She liked the Callaway Rogue OS hybrids.  Going to have her talk things over with her swing coach and get his input.  

Bought a cleat tool and a Puma shirt for myself.

The Accra Tour Z M5 flex showed up this week so the driver shaft experiment began today.  It was interesting the adapter that was advertised as a taylormade is the same as Sub 70 uses.  Saved me from changing it out.

IMG_20220918_203016261.jpg.c6cf2d0a8994b28535cc5cbc4666c0e8.jpg

It really worked well today.  Face impact was tight from the center to about 1/4" favoring high toe.  Center hits were a power fade and the high toe had a straighter ball flight.  Tight dispersion and no loss in distance from the Hzrdus 6.0 flex.  Hopefully this continues!

... Downlow gets his share of HO attention and deservedly so but I have to say you are a pretty stealthy HO that seems to fly under the radar. 🤪
