If I can get a decent mat and net, I might be about to convince the wife that a SkyTrak is necessary.

I'm with you - I did already get consent from the wife for the skytrak.  I'm leaning towards the net return pro with impact screen for ease since I will have to take it up and down in the garage pretty often.

I have a decent mat, well section, I just bought an 11" by 30" section of the country club elite reel feel.  Was able to get that for $35 bucks and has been well worth it.

What are you using for a stance mat? I actually have the same exact section of CCE mat. I bought some foam interlocking tiles from Menards a while ago that I intended on layering together as a stance mat, but I think they would be too squishy. The CCE strip is like 1.75 inches thick so that's been causing me some issues trying to design a platform for it. 

The Net Return Pro looks great but it's probably too much money for me right now. Like I mentioned, I bought 12 feet of industrial curtain track and rollers last year, so my plan is to buy two 10'x15' sections of impact netting from Amazon (less than $150 combined) and have them hooked to that with some overlap. I will have to put hooks in the ceiling to connect the "tails" to the ceiling at an angle on each end to so that I can have some shank protection. I think with the roller track I could roll everything to one side and bungee cord it out of the way.

If it's like mine, it will come from China directly through BoxC Logistics. You can track the USPS number through their site to see status in customs. It took something like 10-12 days to get mine.

I'm excited for you. The improvement on my driver from just a few times working with the PlaneMate (dry swings, mind you) has more than returned my investment. 

I'm too scared to graduate to the long band, so I've just been doing the introduction protocols for the past two weeks.

I appreciate the advice @edingc! I'm already anxiously checking my email for any notifications, even though I know it might take a few more days. It's also good to know you're seeing results doing the introductory protocol, I'll probably do the same for a couple of weeks. I've also watched the videos and it looks like some sound drills they have on there.

An upgraded personal LM. Under 1k - looking at Mevo or Rapsodo - I’m trying to scare up thoughts on the two.

So thoughts here?

I recently sold my Rukkett Golf Haack Net - loved it, but went with a full cage with an impact screen/projection system.  Amazon sells the same exact net at a better price, its ~$91 and currently showing in stock.  This net design is pretty wide to catch errant shots and goes up/down easily.  I had it for 2 years and no issues.  Definitely recommend it because it slowly kicks the balls back to you so you don't have to keep walking down to collect them.

... If you definitely know you need a low launch/low spin shaft, it is hard to beat the Atmos TS Black.

I think I have reached that point where I want graphite.  I know it is a big jump from 120 to 80/90 and that may not be where I end up but it is still difficult to find lots of graphite shafts to demo.  That weight range seems to be where most graphite shafts generally fall.  

 Most of the clubs at MGS are steel and the graphite are generally lightweight and regular or senior flex.  I have tried Harry's Fujikura's,  but they X flex was a bit more than I could handle.   I have been reading your posts in the Titleist thread and knew you liked them.   

I will probably just keep an eye out at my local store since they have a large used club inventory that changes over a lot.  Thanks for your input!

This was also my issue. When I was fitted for the SZ driver, I had some time left and asked for some irons with graphite shafts (as per @chisag recommendation on the T100-S thread). And you can definitely feel the fitter has some bias giving a younger player some graphite irons and the repertoire of graphite shafts is not as complete as their steel counterparts. So, I couldn't do anything with the senior flexes they had.

Hopefully, the industry evolves in that direction... cause I'm also excited to try them in my next set of irons.

Thanks - this is actually what I have now - well the Rukkett version like you and I agree it looks the same.  I've had it for a year and a half and unfortunately I'm close to putting a ball through the net, so I've been careful about how much I've used it the past couple months.  To save money, i would consider coming up with a solution to get the impact screen and still use the rukkett and just buy a new net for it, but unsure how that would work.  Maybe forgo the screen and just use an old 55" tv.

I've been contemplating ditching the 3 wood for a 16 degree hybrid. I can hit bombs with my ST190 TS off the tee but it's a little iffy off the deck. I tried the Speedzone and it was really nice, but I still wanted to try the CLK 16 degree because the 19 I have is so good. I went to the Mizuno Experience Center here in Georgia today and did a fitting for the CLK. I hit my 19 degree and averaged 240 total yards, then I hit the 16 degree and averaged 243 total yards... It didn't matter what shaft we used, I couldn't get past 243 on average and they were extremely well struck shots. So, within a couple weeks I'll be ordering a new Speedzone 3 wood and utilizing those baffler rails!

I need a new putter, I think that now my 25 year old needs to be retired.

Thinking of a Scotty or a Berdinelli.

I probably need to go to a store and play around with what they have first.

I know golf Galaxy offers putter fittings and that might be something I need to explore.
