What Have You Bought Lately? (CHA - Club Ho's Anonymous)

Recommended Posts

I just ordered the X5 Shot Scope stealth black today.... moving away from Garmin S62 watch which has been great but it only picks up approx 80% of the shots (I didn't mind not knowing the specific club because I could always recall what I hit and knowing those total distances has been very helpful).  I tried Arccos sensors a while back and it seemed like they still needed to iron out a few things - I found myself paying waaaay too much attn to Arccos vs Golf.

The X5 was a borderline impulse purchase but that front screen showing hole/par, current score along with second screen/hazard distances front & back was enough to see that they put a lot of thought into this + at $299 including sensors and no ongoing subscription it seemed like a steal!  The one thing I love about the Garmin S62 is the battery life as I get full week plus of regular watch usage and can get at least 2 rounds of golf on the watch before recharge.  

From what I can see the X5 watch can get at least 2 rounds of golf in but can anyone comment on how many days of battery life they get with no golf?  I would imagine that is got to be close to a week (that's the assumption that I made when I bought this AM - they got me with their email about certain colors already running out of stock).   Either way the battery life has to crush the apple watch so I'll be fine with it!

If I sell my sensor stock on eBay I might get 3-4 years out of this for the cost of one year of Arccos.  That's the plan anyway!

So does Shot Scope does not have subscription to go with their hardware like the Arccos?

That's intriguing. Arccos didn't seem worth it to me as I don't think I play enough for the monthly cost but one time cost that gives distances and can track some stats is something I will have to consider.

ShotScope is definitely the way to go if you aren't looking for another subscription service. I have been using the V3 watch and tags for the past two seasons and love the stats it tracks and I now don't have any delusions about how far I hit each club. The ability to review your round and the decisions you made can really help you improve your course management and shot selection. I just pulled the trigger on upgrading to the X5 since it looks nicer, has a touchscreen and the ability to place the pin.

Not clubs, but the weekend sale at RockBottomGolf has me thinking about buying the peripherals to my golf game I had wanted but kept putting off.

I want a stand bag to carry 10 clubs on a windy day to the range/par 60. My old driver head is sitting with no shaft. I'm getting down to using some pretty ugly balls with tree scuffs. And finally I've wanted Arccos sensors for more than a year now. To accomplish all those things for $238 seems frugal.

They have a weekend closeout worth checking out, everything Snake Eyes price drop, cheap shoes, range finders, bags and sales on drivers and wedges from what I scanned.

I have a shopping cart now in the back of my mind.

For arccos you can get the sensors for free.

they charge a yearly fee so paying for the sensors to me was not something  I was going to do

Ty for that info. I probably don't want to spend that much now anyway. Dropping that from the cart, I'm probably more likely to pull the trigger on the rest.

Finally gripped my next brand new club and gave it some time at the simulator. A Titleist SM9 54* S-Grind with a C-Taper R+ Shaft. Comparing it to my old 54, a SM8 S-Grind but with a Hi-Rev 2.0 S the new club is absolutely fantastic and does exactly what it was designed to do versus the SM8 Less Spin and Low Flight. As well has feeling very similar to my iron shafts (KBS CTL Stiff) I feel my swing is going to be much more constant this year and will help me get my goal of Single Digit Handicap.

Last (Hopefully) Purchase will be a new 58 degree still on the fence between the M and T Grind. ...Maybe I will just have to get both.

Been a while since I posted here and I’m getting withdrawals lol. I picked up a superstroke 2.0PT grip. They didn’t have the black/white one so I had to settle for the red/white one. I really liked the 1.0PT but it was a little small and building up Superstroke grips too much tends to be a hassle

Re-gripped the clubs with Pure combo grips. Got a used PXG 0317 Gen2 22 degree hybrid and Tour Egde Exotics EXS Ti-Utility 17 degree. And what I am most excited about Srixon ZX7 MK2 driver. With the trade in deal on the driver and the used clubs I reworked the top of my bag for $540. Planing on posting some quick reviews on them after I get a little more time with them.

I just grabbed my first hybrid since the original Cleveland Halo in 2004. I picked up a slick TSi2 18° Hybrid with HZRDUS Smoke Black RDX Hexcel shaft for only $180 CAD. The technology leap from the halo to the TSi2 is bananas. Very different clubs but so nice to hit.

Dove in for the golf peripherals I wanted. Spending $150 got me free shipping and $25 off my order (and everything was already discounted)

Excited for the stand bag to bring to the range, color coordinated with the Callaway pullover. The Oakley hoodie I got matches my running shoes perfectly. 48 Vice ball mix for about $1 each will keep me outfitted for the rest of the year likely.
