The new line from TM is definitely eye catching.

Possibly going back to tensei blue

Absolutely. Already told some buddies that 770 will be in the bag for next season...could be sooner depending on how much of a bug for them I catch. Only question is do I combo and if so is it a mc/770 or 770/790

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?

Lost my Titleist hybrid head cover last week, so I guess I'm in the market for a new hybrid🤦‍♂️🤣.  Yeah I know, I could just get a replacement hybrid head cover, but what's the fun in that??🤣

Ventus is not behaving?

Losing it so far to the right, too often. Easier to blame shaft than my swing 🙂

I have been losing my SIM Max to the right too. Most of the time, not too far right but my course is narrow and punishing overall. Once in a while, there is a ball that goes WTF right.

There is a pretty long thread about the SIM Max going right on WRX.

I like that it is really, really hard to make it go left which is my "bad" miss. However, I seriously blocked one like 50y right on #9 last week and was in the middle of the wrong fairway. Lucky to get a hybrid on the green for an Eagle look, but on courses with taller trees that would've been bad news.

Yeah, I like that its hard to make it go left unless I make a really poor swing and pull the ball. 

I've been getting punished at times with a slight right miss that hits trees guarding the right side of the fairway. However, better than left, which is generally people's yards at my home course.

I've got it in the upright setting and then increase the loft one setting to slightly close the face. That helped a bit.

Seriously looking at a second hand Callaway Epic Flash Heavenwood. Its got the shaft I want and the ability to adjust loft without affecting the lie is making me think it's worth the gamble. Ideally I'd get a 7 wood, but finding a used one with a stiff shaft, let alone a shaft I know suits me is no easy task.

I've used my Ping Glide 2.0 Stealth wedges for a season, but can't quite hit them right every time even after hours of chipping practice. Recently saw the new Mizuno ES21 wedges and i'm drooling already...now to just convince my treasurer they are a solid investment. Perhaps I'll hold off and try them out first to make sure they fit my swing/game so I don't get another Ping situation.

Since I purchased the SIM 3 wood with HZRDUS Green shaft, I have wanted to get that shaft for my driver. My dispersion is tight and I know exactly where this thing is going (The right percentage is from my first round getting used to this club, since then all center or slightly left of fairway, most of the misses have not been by much). I want to get and test it though before buying........Also the SIM 3 wood anyway is fantastic.

I decided against it after checking full specs, the heavenwood head is larger than my 3 wood so I'll hold out for a suitable 7 wood or bite the bullet and buy new.

I'm thinking about longer term, improving at golf just so i can buy player's irons instead of playing SGI shovels. Nothing wrong with the shovels though, i like them for where I am at now in my journey.

Is it bad to aspire to improve just to buy new clubs?

Not at all. I started taking lessons partially because I wanted to play more compact clubs, but also because I wanted to play nicer courses and still have chances to score.

The one club that has been in my bag the longest is my GBB Heavenwood. Easily the most consistent club I hit.

Have you tried hitting anything more on the player's side? I know this topic has opinions all over the place. In my "opinion", I think that if a mid to higher hcp wants to aspire to playing more compact clubs, they should give them a try at least.

What I found when my hcp was in the teens, was that my game didn't suffer by going to more player style irons (Maltby DBM). I was actually pretty surprised that I could hit them so well contrary to what I'd been led to believe.

I think that if you find your game isn't negatively altered by playing CBs or blades, and your willing to make the "all in" commitment to improve your game with them, then go for it! Additionally, if your fully committed, which I know YOU are :), you'll get feedback from smaller clubs that you won't get from SGI's. You'll learn even more about your swing and what needs improvement. I also found that as my level of skill requirement increased, so did my focus, and commitment to the game.

In the past 2 yrs I've gone from mid teens to 6.3 by following this path. Currently I play slightly larger player irons but will be moving back to a smaller profile this week and know I won't skip a beat by switching.


the more I practice, the luckier I seem to get..

Waiting.. waiting.. oh does waiting suck!

A couple weeks back I ordered a 3i head from Maltby/Golfworks in their TS1 lineup. I put it together with a KBS Tour 90 shaft. Its performance/looks would determine whether or not I move forward with a full set.

Well I pulled the trigger last Monday. Ordered TS1 4-PW with TT DG 105 shafts and GP Microsuede grips. Also ordered a TSW 50° wedge head to build a Gap with a TT DG Spinner shaft. I've been waiting (not so patiently) for the GW to send the "shipped" email. I am NOT good at waiting.
