What equipment are you thinking about?

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.

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

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.

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.

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?!?!

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.

Mind if I ask you what you traded? You check value on clubs and it's always garbage but I hear people getting pretty good trade value out of items. Looked up the value of a 3 wood that is this years model and it said $70.....

I just completed a buying frenzy of 2 pairs of shoes, driver, 4 wood, 2 hybrids, and a bag. Only the hybrids and bag are starters at this point.

 

I was fortunate enough to be selected as a winner of a set of Wilson C200's last Spring, thank you Wilson and MGS!

 

The bottom of my bag is untouchable and has been for three years, putter for 10. I bought two dozen B330 RXs for Christmas and Barbajo was kind enough to bring me a dozen when we played earlier this year so I still have tons of balls. I bought Sports Authority out of gloves in my size. I've taken 4 lessons this year. My handicap index is down to 3.9.

 

I woke up happy with the state of my game and my equipment. How long that will last is anyone's guess but I'm good on equipment right now thanks for asking. :)

That reminds me I had a comment to make on that thread. Go to a fitter but I'm confident that you need a stiffer shaft on your irons.

Definitely recommend a good iron shaft fitting if you have someone near you that does one.  I had one back in June and it was extremely eyeopening.  The fitter I went to used Trackman and it was great to see how consistency/dispersion changed between shafts.

We all talk about fitting and how everyone should be fit. Just because a shop or store has a Trackman or a Flightscope doesn't mean jack. For example just yesterday I was in a local golf shop and overheard a guy asking a salesman about getting fit. The first thing this young (and inexperienced) salesman said was come on back to our Trackman and lets see what we can do. I know for a fact that nobody at this store is a qualified fitter. The launch monitor is a sales tool only for them. I'm certainly no club fitter but if I can say anything it's that club fitting is way more involved than flipping the switch on a Trackman. A proper fitting never starts on a launch monitor.

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

Absolutely - but it certainly needs to include one.  And when I say go to a fitter I do not mean just go to a golf store that has a launch monitor that offers fitting for a fee.  I mean seek out a true club fitter.  

 

Depending on your location there are a lot of good choices where you can find award winning fitters.

I may be heading to PGA Superstore to buy a Nike driver. They came with those closeout prices and i may head that way. My wife and I agreed that I would see how much I ge tin my bonus check and go from there. 

150 for a driver and 100 for a fw are stupid good deals. I thought about buying the fairway wood to try out but changed my mind. Done too much ho-ing lately.
