What equipment are you thinking about?

After paying some rental clubs at @revkev's club today, I'm thinking I really need a TS3 3W with the HZRDS Smoke shaft. That club felt like we had been together for a long time. My wife rolled her eyes at me when I suggested it.

Funny story, I was at GG last weekend waiting to hit the the Demo T400 they had just gotten in.  The sales rep goes to the guy in line before me and asks what can he help him with.    Customer: "

Picked up a set of these today (4-10) with the Vizard Graphite shaft.  At 85gr,  the shafts may be a little light,  but I wanted to give graphite a try.  Gotta figure out gapping for the bag;  even th

... Do you have a storefront where we can wear a mask and see aaaaaallllllll the clubs you have for sale?

Seriously thinking about dropping some cash on Mizuno MP 18 SC irons. At $400.00+ off, it's still a considerable amount of $$$ for me. I'm trying to talk myself out of it, but I'm losing the battle. I'll probably own these in the very near future.

Do it. The SC are great irons and you can never go wrong with Mizuno. Grab them then go find some nippons pulls to put in them

Yep, that TS3 3W was sure sweet in your hands.

Customer: "I'm looking for an X-Stiff 3 wood that I can control and hit 250 to reach the par 5's instead of having to layup. I want to try the SIM and MAVRIK."

The sales guy tells him they don't have any X Stiff shafts, ask's what his driver swing speed is, the guys says about 115 to 120.  So the rep say try this it should work it was a EvenFlow 6.0 I think I heard him say. 

So the guy proceeds to hit about 12 out of 15 shots fat never getting one past 222 including the roll.  The Sales guys says, you swing speed is showing 88 (3 wood) so I'd say stiff is right at what you need.  

Customer: "I think the stiff shaft is causing me to lose control and not hit it cleanly, that's why I need the X Stiff.  You sure you don't have any" 

SMH...I think I've been behind this guy on the golf course before. Waiting for the green to clear, only to top an 80 yard worm burner....ha

I’ve probably played with him or his twin brother.  Definitely seen his close relatives on various courses

Yeah, guy definitely gets around.  And to complete the picture, he was wearing a tee shirt about 3 sizes too small, and not because he works out a lot...ha

He could always just go the steel shaft route in the 3w.  HAHAHAHAHA

Must be fun to be a club fitter and have your customers tell you what you need to give them....they should use a sharpie on reg/stiff shafts and write in "Extra" and use those when guys like this come along.

Here: this one is EXTRA stiff.  LOL

... Some here probably know that Ely Callaway tapped into this phenomenon with the most successful product launch ever. He knew golfers ego's prevented them from choosing the right clubs. Almost always too stiff and not enough loft. He addressed this in the most brilliant way, but did throw what were once pretty standard specs completely out of whack. When Ely introduced the Big Bertha, he took his R-Flex shaft and put a S-Flex label on it and he took a driver head labeled 9* but it was actually 12-14*. Same thing with fairway woods labeled 3 wood and although he didn't list lofts, most assumed around 13-15* when it was actually 16-18*.

... All of a sudden, average golfers with a 100+ swing speed  🤣  that hit their drivers 210 were hitting their drivers 230. They were also hitting their fairway woods off the turf with a higher trajectory. For the very first time they were playing with equipment that at least more closely matched their needs. Brilliant.

Well, seeings how I'm trading in my whole iron set to offset this Fairway Wood purchase, think I need new irons and wedges. Hopefully will trade toward the wedge cost, but hopefully scheduling a fitting for irons quite soon.

Sounds awesome.... I cannot find a combo set anywhere.  I either have to buy 2 full sets and drop some clubs or buy 1 full set and then buy the others individually.  Ugh.

I’ve ran into the same problem in the past. I like the irons so much I wanted at least one backup set.

Some SM8’s... those Glides are not going to work for me. Too much bounce. Pretty sure I just hit the 52° about 225 yards and just successfully bladed a 58° about 150... 🤷🏼‍♂️

Need a 5 and 7 wood too.

With all the Coronavirus closing going on right now I’m thinking I may need a putter.
I just sent off my Flow neck x5 to Continental Golf and while I don’t know for sure that my refinish will be affected, I’m thinking I better start shopping around just in case!
