What equipment are you thinking about?

Recommended Posts

I’ve been looking hard at getting away from playing Blades and trying something similar but more forging. But I just had an amazing round today which makes me less likely to make a move in the iron department. I’m eyeing the Cobra 🐍 Forged Tec irons either traditional or one length. I was just listening to the No Putts Given Episode 29 where they were talking about wedge grinds, which had me thinking my money may be better spent one a new 56 and a lob wedge or two. I also would love to go to Canada and visit TXG for a proper fitting, but not in this current environment.

Thinking long and hard about whether or not this D7 driver is going to work for me. Spent time at the range last night messing with ball position and tee height but in the end, I think the biggest issue is that it's just too light for me. I can't feel it anywhere in the swing. I'll have my 14yo try it again and see if it'll be a better fit for him and see if I can snag my F6 back from him!

I think I’ve configured a few different sets and looked at lifts and combos and all of it. Even down to bags and colors.

We’ll see how long before I see a cobra ad on my work computer! Haha

think I'm going to try the maxfli tour balls this year. 45 for 2 dozen at DSG and they did well in the ball test last year.... going for the reg tour version (not the x) and not the matte finish.

I used them a bit last year. Not too bad. Actually, really good to be honest.

Got a little nostalgic twist with going back to the old brand.

Tour or the X?

Not bad.... 22.50 per dozen for a quality urethane ball. 
My other 2 choices are Bridgestone or Srixon but those are about 10.00+ more per dozen.

Have you tried Snell?

I got a good deal on MTB-Xs on here in B/S/T, so I'm stocked up for now, but was curious how these would compare. I've played the MTB Blacks in the past as well, but the MTB-Xs react better around the green for me.

Have not - 32.00 per dozen before shipping made that decision easier.

Have the Mavrik driver with a 9* Sub Zero head and Aldila Rogue shaft on the way, however I was fitted into the Ventus Blue 7X.  Fitter did not have a 6X handy for me to try so I called a local golf course that had one to compare.  Glad I did, was able to get easier launch with the 6X and dispersion was even better.  A couple bad swings with both, but man does this shaft help eliminate some of the big misses.  A few I thought were either a big slice or hook would still have been really playable.

You gotta get the $20 a dozen Srixon Z or Z-Star XV balls (prior generation). 

I should stop telling people about the deal because the supply will run out 😁

Player's distance irons will change your life.  Im a low single digit who changed over this year and my iron game has improved immeasurably.  I'll be one of the few testing the Hogan Icon / PTX Combo sets in the coming weeks.  I would invite you to check that as well.
