They were one of the first to get into graphite iron shafts for higher swing speeds. Very smooth and stable shafts that I had in a set of the MB Black irons. 

I've seen those around for forever but I don't think I knew they were 130g. Good to know, thanks!

Very nice score there. You will also be surprised at how easy they are to hit for a blade. I had these in the bag for a number of years and really liked them a lot.

Whats the story on those Matrix shafts? That's heavy for graphite .

As usual, Jmikecpa is right on the money. I think the original Ozik Program lineup came in 3 different weight categories, the 130 being the beefiest. Because this particular set is tour spec, chances are they are also on the strong end of the 6.0 category. Matrix lists the 130s at 111-118 grams in the 6.0 which I agree may end up feeling like telephone poles. But the torque numbers in the 130s are stupid low for graphite at 1.2-1.5* (can't seem to wipe this dispersion grin off my face).

 

In the long run they may be heavier than ideal for my game but the real score for me was the pristine "C" stamped 3-PW heads that I can immediately put into play for USGA qualifiers. I actually reached out to Jmikecpa last month to see if he wanted to unload one of his MB2 sets (he was having none of it by the way). Hoping he rues that decision when we face off in the Mid-Am later this year. ;)

Thanks pards! I haven't been this excited about new equipment since the day I ordered my Macgregror Tourney PMB build in '98.

 

Side note: the mailman just delivered the Shot Scope for review; hopeful it will make dialing in distances with the new wrenches a snap...we shall see!

You did better with this set than the few that I own.  Two of the sets have KBS Tour 130x shafts in them which is the main reason that I don't play them anymore, just too much shaft for me these days.  I do regret dumping my MBs with the Matrix in them but again don't have the game these days to even think about playing those.

Yeah, I couldn't be much happier. They weren't exactly "cheap" but still a few hundred less than ordering the shafts alone from Matrix.

 

For 2+ years, I have been searching in earnest for the right set. Most of them I have come across were total rust buckets and assumed any re-furbish I attempted would get me into dangerous territory on the conforming status.

 

Note: Always on the lookout for ingenuity, I really like what they did with the Pure grip color cycle (Gray: PW, 7i, 4i; White: 9i, 6i, 3i; Red: 8i, 5i). I mistakenly hit a different club than intended once or twice each season and the grip color confirmation should take care of those rare brain farts.

 

Thank you (sincerely) for being such an equipment hoarder. Last month after reaching out about snagging one of your sets and to paraphrase, you replied "No thanks, I'm keeping all 3 sets", I was thinking "Jmikecpa should probably seek out professional help for his equipment hoarding disorder". But in the long run, patience pays off again.

 

I had my WITB all set to post this afternoon but decided to hold off until these new drool inducing knives arrive on Friday.

These sets don't really fit into my hoarding.  Each of them has a meaning to me and would be hard to part with.  Now if you were looking for Apex Pro's or Titleist AP2s I think that I would have let either of those go with no problems.  Just don't ask about any of my putters, I don't flip those very often at all.

Bought another project putter, I didn't really want it, but the price was $25, so I putt in the minimum bid, and won the auction. So I now have a crimson series Odyssey 660 on the way. It will be stripped and torched and who knows what else IMG_2060.JPGIMG_2061.JPGIMG_2062.JPG

I didn't like the feel of the black, although I prefer the color. It felt as if I was forcing the putt. The Red felt effortless to me, maybe it's the "softer" feel.
