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

Callaway Pre-Owned is going to bankrupt me.  Just bought the Rogue ST LS 3W with the GD Tour AD IZ-7S shaft.  Said I was done with my setup for this season but couldn't pass up on the sale they have going on now.

Just swapped my shafts and grips for my Honma XP1 irons. The old x stiff KBS Tour V shafts were too stout for me. Now I'm rocking Nippon modus 3 105 stiff shafts and No1 grips 50 series in blue. Loving the switch so far, seeing improved accuracy and ball flight 👍

I recently picked up a Burk Golf 60º wedge from Amazon. 

Forged and milled, PVD finish and bronze colour. 

Gorgeous club with great feel. 

The shaft is a lot lighter than the S400 T.I in my Cleveland RTX, but it gives the head a nice weight. 

I swapped out the grip with a GP CP2 Pro that I pulled off my old 61º.

Only swung it in my basement so far, but it feels great, very "Vokey-esque"  look at address.

20230328_220238.jpg

Update: Sub70 699u early impressions

Range session, 10-12 swings off mat mostly toe misses 3 or 4 good strikes a couple miss hits being too close. 39" iron is a swing I'm recalling from far back in muscle memory. Gapped appropriately above my 6i and below 5h set @23° like I hoped.

Yesterday 18 holes used 5 or 6 times, good and bad results. On course the adjustment I'm struggling with is teeing at the right height to get proper launch. Caught it off the ground nice a couple times, 165y or so carry. Tee shots were coming up short of that with higher pop up quality that made me go to driver later in the round.

Today 18 holes, 1 absolute chunk I overswung and took a 2 1/2" deep 6" long divot. I was overthinking the 170y number I knew I had to hit. The other 3-4 times I used it were noted as "good" or "on" so quickly I'm adjusting to the length and where to align with the club. But the bad ones have been bad. 😄

Think this is just a familiarity issue?  It sounds like it. Your good shots - really good?

I've yet to hit an "A+" so to speak. I think it is familiarity. I looked at the specs on my old Ta3 form forged irons and the 3i was 38.75" long. This UT is 39" long. I always left the 3i at home and played that set 4-9i.

My A+ swings came today with the new 24°. Most notably this one pictured below (blue sharpie on the ball gave great feedback, finally found 'the spot') par 3 #11 playing 168y with crosswind hit it 18' past and held the back of the green. 

The tee height I had way too high, it needs to be a 1/8" or maybe a little less off the ground when teed.

This showed up.

SKB ATA Deluxe standard travel case.  Bought used for significant savings.

Traveling to Hawaii in a few weeks and bringing my set with me for the first time ever.  Southwest only covers damage if things are in a hard case so.. as I am not rich AF I’ll deal with the inconvenience of a hard case.

It will fit a c-130 case if the side pockets are empty.

will do a full review once I actually travel with it.

Looks good, enjoy the trip. Had a soft bag for my clubs when I took them from Sydney to Auckland for holidays, never had a problem fortunately from a dozen trips..

I’m a hacker who loves nothing more than to change how I play, be that grips shafts and heads its all fair game lol…

softie would work probably, but I cant afford to replace my set and the only way damage is covered is if its a hard case per their guidelines on traveling with things like that. 

cost of hardcase < cost of me entire club set.

Great looking set up!
