I just tried a 5.5 today for the first time, and it blew me away. Right now I’m thinking I might go with it instead of the Newport 2.0 or mini giant I talked about yesterday.

I’m thinking a 33.5” with a black matador midsize grip. I believe that if you order under 34” you get 40 g weights? (30g for 34” and 20g for 35 and up, but I’m not sure.)

Anyway, did you go lighter, or heavier, and what did the weights cost?

I was LOVING the 5.5 before being selected for the LAB DF 2.1 test - which has completely blown me away, but mannnnnn  that 5.5 was slick.

Yeah, I might be the only one from that test who didn’t get along with the LAB 2.1 🤷‍♂️

(then again, I’ve just been struggling with my entire game the past few weeks. I’m up to a 14 now, and it seems like the sky is the limit…)

I've had a few rounds where my pace-control hasn't been awesome, but my green-reading has gotten SO much better it's saved me a bunch of strokes.  There was something about the 5.5 that felt like I could just line it up and let it go, which is ultimately where I'm at with the LAB.

Based on your experience I would say yes.   Have people cancelled or refused to sell when an auction closed...yes.     You could complain to eBay but probably wouldn't accomplish much.  

Think your right, I asked the guy why he didn't ship and he blamed eBay. Obviously lying as he's relisted but NO international shipping, too bad..

Bought up another dozen Titleist ProV1x RCTs to last me the rest of the offseason.

$53 delivered direct from Titleist with code RCT2022. Thanks to @GolfSpy MPR for the tip on the 'ol Twittersphere...

Can't pass up the more accurate ball data when used with the Mevo+.

... Well, it was a combination of I absolutely love my MG3 50* and 58* wedges and my distance control with my 46* pw's on partial swings is not as accurate as my 50*. So I am replacing my set pw's with another MG3 wedge. I'll need to replace the DGS200 with a Steelfiber i95 this weekend.

Do you recommend matching shafts in irons and wedges?

... I think it is a personal choice. I see plenty of good players with the same shaft but a heavier weight in their wedges. And some that just stick with the stock dynamic gold that comes with so many wedges. But I am a big believer in consistency and taking variables out of play so I prefer the same shaft in my wedges that I have in my irons.

If you haven't seen it, here is the link to my Hitting Bay project from the beginning.  Turf might be shipped on Monday; I'm anxious to start using it.  The Sim comes a little later; I'm doing this in pieces.  😄

Picked up six dozen of the 2022 Elixirs from OnCore's B2G1 sale.  Found a pair of Adidas shoes with BOA lacing for real cheap on Amazon and I'm excited to try them out.  

Wasn't planned but Owen talked me into buying each other a putting mat and driving mat for the garage.

Also found a few polos, a pair of shorts and a NWT quarter zip while thrifting recently, along with two more golf books.

Took MGS advice and snagged a "demo" Mizuno ST-Z 220 driver to play around with. I'd never really given Mizuno a shot during my driver fitting last year, so it is kind of an unknown to me how it will perform. For $200, I can't really go wrong giving it a shot considering I could get the same shaft and grip on it that II currently use.
