Is anyone getting new toys for Christmas?  After some experimenting (aka carrying 17 clubs for the past few rounds), I have my bag set for next season.

 

It will look like this........

 

Driver - Cobra Bio Cell Pro at 8* with a Fujikura Speeder 661 XS

3w - Cobra Fly-Z+ at 14* with a Project X Pxv Tour XS

Hybrid - Nickent 7dt 18* with a Paderson Kinetix Kevlar Green XS

Irons - TaylorMade Tour Preferred 4 CB, 5-7 MC, 8-PW MB with DG Tour Issue X100s

Wedges - Taylormade RBladez 50* (This club cannot be beat by anything I have tried), Renegar 54* and 58*

Putter - Snake Eyes Viper Tour 8802 style (This was my first ever club build and it has been on fire)

Ball - MG C4 Tour (can't beat this ball at $20/dozen)

 

 

This will not change................unless something better comes along. lol

 

 

 

So, what do you have planned for your bag?

My bag will be pretty similar to what I have already. (see signature below) I've stated recently that I might ... might consider a new driver. I know I'll get a new putter because just yesterday I made an appointment in Liberty Hill, Texas at the Edel headquarters for a new putter fitting on December 23rd. So, for Christmas I'm gifting myself a new putter. What driver might I consider? I have no idea. I can say one thing. It would not be OTR like my SLDR. Even though I generally hit the SLDR quite well; I have it optimized as best can be. But it's still OTR and I feel I've gotten lucky with the performance and consistency for an OTR club. It will be hard to beat. Another change I may make is to reintroduce my Wishon 775HS 21* 3HB. I really would like to use this club in place of my 4i. I've had it since the spring but didn't play it was well as I expected. Could my fit be off slightly? Maybe. Could it just be me and my swing? Probably. I may take it out today and see how it plays.

So there you have it. Mostly the same with a new putter and a slight possibility of a new driver.

 

EDIT: as for ball? I'll probably continue my rotation of MG Tour C4, Chrome Soft, Snell, PV1.

My Sun Mountain bag currently includes:   TWGTLogo2.png.06c802075f4d211691d88895b3f34b75.png 771CSI 5i - PW and TWGTLogo2.png.06c802075f4d211691d88895b3f34b75.png PFC Micro Tour-c 52°, 56°, 60 wedges

At the risk of annoying the wife, I think it may be time to invest in a new putter.

 

Being on the forum for a short time has got me really wanting to try out a custom made putter but the price tag on those is a bit steep.

 

Everything else will more than likely stay the same. (Only time will tell though)

Always auditioning for a driver replacement, but so far nothing has beat the SLDR.

 

Driver - SLDR w/ Diamana D+ S

Hybrids - 17, 22, & 25 Adams Super LS w/ Kuro Kage S

Irons - Speedblade 6-9i w/ C-Taper S+

Wedges - 45, 50, 54, 58 (Score) & 63 (Hogan TK)

Putter - Odyssey Works #7, counterbalanced version

 

I could end up replacing some of the Scor's w/ Hogan's as they wear out, Have my eye on testing out the Cobra King and TMaG M1 but I don't have high hopes that they will beat the SLDR.

The only change I am looking at in the new Edel putter that is currently on order. I was also thinking of sending my irons back to Ping to get the ferrules replaced as some have come loose. and getting the Rapture 2I adjusted to my lie my irons are silver dot where as I bought the used 2I in maroon dot.

Driver trials are under way - other than that possibly nothing but if I were to make a change it would be adding a 4 wood, a 56 SCOR and bending the 53 to 52 or finding a used 52. 

 

Most likely scenario is just a new Driver at some point - I'm investing a lot of dough on the course.

Taylor Made Stealth 10.5  Aldila Ascent Red R flex

Ping G410 5, 7, 9 wood  Alta 65 R flex

Wilson D7 forged 5-GW -  Mamiya recoil 460 R flex

Edison Wedges 54 and 59 KBS Tour Graphite 80's

EVNRoll ER 5

Titleist Pro VIx optic yellow with revkev stamped on them

Still on that elusive hunt for a 3 wood that I'm able to hit - I don't know why, I crush the 5 wood and it's really a 4 wood anyway.

I really don't see any reason to change, but that doesn't mean I won't!  It's my right to change, and I will if I want to.  But then again, why should I?  Nothing seems to be that much better.  Maybe I will need something with more glitter; maybe a different color will somehow make me swing better.  I don't know...  I can't make up my mind.

 

I could see a new driver making its way into my bag, and if I ever get a chance to try out the Ben Hogan irons, they could replace the Pings.  I don't see the SCORs leaving anytime soon.

 

Here's what I got to start the year:

 

Driver - SLDR 14*

4w - Sonartec LS-99

7w - Sonartec LS-99

5H - TaylorMade RBZ 

Irons - Ping i20 5-8

Wedges - SCOR 42, 46, 50, 54, 58

Putter - Boccieri Heavy Putter C2-DF

Ball - Snell My Tour Ball and Snell Get Sum (depending on temperature)

Bag- Sun Mountain MCB and Microcart   I definitely need a new cart bag!!

Not to be sarcastic but exactly what you see in my signature including the wedges. Depending on how much my Christmas Bonus is I may spring for a new golf bag since I have not had a new one in 10 years and both of mine are getting battle worn. But if I have to I will play with the ones I have

The Hogans were too expensive to not get the opening day start.

If they don't work out, I'll be more likely to go backward than forward in choosing irons.

 

I won't make a major expenditure on an iron set two years running.

This is the year that I will be getting a new "New" driver and a set of new "new" irons. Up until now I have just bought used drivers that are 2-3 years old. It's the same for my irons. I have had two sets and both are hand me downs. I am currently a free agent. I'm willing to get anything that feels nice and is consistent. However, the worst part of getting clubs for Christmas is that I have to wait 4 months to play. I am excited for the new set up, whatever it may be!

What's in the Bag

Bag- Sun Mountian 

Driver - Callaway Rouge 9.5* HZRDUS Smoke Yellow
Fairway wood - Ping G15 3 wood

Hybrid - Tour Edge Exotics XCG6 19* 
Irons - Callaway XR 5-PW
Wedges - Cleveland 588-RTX 52* 56* 60*
Putter - Scotty Cameron Select Newport 3 - SuperStroke Wrist lock Grip

Irons are getting an update, putters... The whole bag will be updated for next year, but the driver may stay the same... Old cobra encore zl.

 

Will post my updated bag in a few weeks... But Srixon 745 irons is what looks to be the winner

Short game changes for me.

After refinishing the old Spalding TPM 12 and regripping it, i was playing around with it last night on the carpet and I have to admit, it seemed to roll better and be more accurate that my current 2-ball backstryke. I have to give it a thorough run through at the putting green, but i might be going back to a blade putter from my current mallet.  

On the other hand, i am saving up for a putter fitting and new putter, so hopefully I can pull that trigger by next summer. 

Wedges? Maybe. I want to try a higher bounce wedge on some grass, but the only time I can usually get to the range and try things out is usually at night after the shop closes.

Pretty much what is in my signature with the putter changing at any given point.  I have another Circle T that I have my eye on and considering a custom build over the winter as well.
