What equipment are you thinking about?

Recommended Posts

Thought we could have a thread to hear about what equipment is on everyone's mind?  Thinking about pulling the trigger on something? Waiting for a release date?  Drooling over something but just dont have the funds?  

What equipment is on your mind?

I just traded in some old stuff and got a $270 gift card to Galaxy.

 

Thinking about Under Armour shoes or maybe holding off for the new RTX3 Wedges.

I bought some new spikes for my shoes today? Does that count?

 

Oh, and on side note.... there was a Titleist driver of some type in the golf shop today. Sorry but I didn't take a pic or recall what model it was. It had a brushed metallic looking crown and the sticker price was $999.99!! If anyone is interested I'd bet they'll ship it for free.

Having just completed my review of the Cobra F6 irons that are in my bag and having aquired the Cobra King LTD Driver, there isn't much left.  I got a new putter last Christmas (Bellum Winmore 707).  The only thing left is fairways and wedges.  Well, i just pre-ordered the Bombtech 4 Hybrid & Wedge set.....so I am good......for now.

I think that's the new c16. Its their driver to "compete" with the pxg stuff. No thanks haha

I try not to think about new golf equipment...only costs me money. Last time I had a thought I went and bought a Hogan VKTR hybrid.

I'm eyeing either the 714 Ap2s or the RSI 2s and maybe even the RSI TP if the price is right. It's a matter of price and availability now. Well that and selling off my old clubs

Nice, those are some solid sets. Have you hit either yet?

I have hit the Ap2 and the RSI 2, but I haven't had the chance to hit the RSI TP. I'm leaning towards the ap2 because of the feel and the look, but the RSI is still a good looking and feeling iron with some extra distance, but the price difference between the ap2 and the RSI 2 might lean me towards the RSI 2.

I want the cobra baffler that came out a few months ago. Just waiting to find one on the bay. I know in the offseason I must replace my wedges and I'm thinking bout the new mizzys

Yeah the ap2s sound/feel a little better but they perform really similarly. The Srixon 545s are marked down now with the 565s coming out and they perform very similar to the rsi2 with the feel of the ap2s. Callaway apex is another good option.

I've heard good things about the 545s, but I'm yet to find them anywhere. As before the Apex irons both the old and current models are a bit pricy for me. I am in love with the Apex Cf16s though. I would buy those in a heartbeat if the price is right.

Yeah the Srixon 545s were only in a few Golfsmiths and pga superstores. If you lived anywhere near Philly or NYC we could meet up and you could hit mine. It's a shame they weren't more available at retail locations and I hope the 2016 line makes it into more stores.

 

Callaway pre-owned might have some good deals on the 2014 apex line. For the 545s they are marked down a good amount on srixon's site but the s300 is the only shaft option available.

 

I actually just used a fitter that had the 545 head and shafts and got fitted and had them reshaft mine

I've looked on Callaway's site for deals, the 2014 apex and visually unappealing to me. It's really a shame that the 2016 irons arent cheaper. They feel amazing and fly like rockets.

Yeah, the 2014 apex pros looked great but I never liked the look of the standard Apex

They need some chrome and a little less plastic to them. I love the muscle design that the 2016 ones have. I would quite possibly kill for the black finish ones

I keep thinking about the Hogan VKTR hybrids that I will be testing soon. I'm wondering why I'm doing this because right now I am liking my RBZs.

I keep thinking about taking the plunge on a Wishon 12-point fitting for a set of irons. I have played around with different OEM offerings (and their version of custom fitting) and I guess I can say that I have been drinking the Wishon koolaid regarding what he would consider a "true" custom fit. I'm a sucker for the lore of an ornery genius who sits in his tower designing new clubs. I don't think Tom would object too much to my characterization—makes him seem like some sort of modern day wizard. Anyway, my equipment yearnings often change by the month so we will see.

Also! Just bought a clicgear 3.5+. Anyone else on here recently make the switch from carrying to pushing? Hoping it fixes my late round collapses.

I'm looking at a blade type putter. Want a Scotty. Been rolling a 2 ball for 10 years and it's time for a change. Afraid to get a Scotty off the bay but not sure about paying full price...anybody got one?!?!

      Next steps to my road to improvement
      Current
       Adding the Mizuno MMC FliHi 4 iron to the bag once it comes it to replace my hybrid. The hybrid has too significant of a draw bias, not terrible, but I also draw the ball naturally already, and will probably go in and out of the bag, but I'm looking for better shot shaping with the FliHi and have that 210 to 225 distance into the green and off of the tee. Working on my putting. I'm rolling the ball nicely now with a slightly open stance with my current putter. I have another putter that I can get the ball rolling online, but the pace is off. Future step is to actually get fit for a putter. Working on my natural tempo and swing speed for the driver to have more consistent drives. See below for more info. Next
      Driver shaft optimization. Not looking for a new head yet. I like my 2017 M1 460. Interested in the journey of testing some shafts. Right now my shaft is determining what kind of shot I can do. Slower speed and tempo than my natural speed and tempo. This has lead to a great deal of inconsistency of trying to find the "magic speed and tempo" and I know that isn't the way to go. Swing speed training. I'll have multiple shafts at this point so I can game whatever is best fitting me as I go along. And I can always swing a little slower or club down to hit a fairway. Future
      Get fitted for a putter > get fitted for a driver/shaft and woods from a high level, reputable company willing to discuss numbers and takes the time and right approach. Open to custom shafts and not just from the OEM cart like at a Golf Galaxy. I have only been fitted to a driver once, but didn't purchase as I did not like the experience, small selection of shafts, and I wasn't swinging my natural speed and tempo like I should have.

      I'm really liking the new UI on this forum. It looks really clean!
