Putting my order in tomorrow, SWMBO approved lol

FWIW I called Taylormade and the customer rep I spoke with confirmed the link is legit and they are making the clubs "just like we used to" (his words)

I called because I was suspicious about the old logo being used, the Adams Golf twitter in the above photo doesn't have a blue check, and the the website is solely for the fairway woods. Still some things that seem odd to me but I will take the word of the Taylormade customer service rep and take the risk.

 

 

New 3 Wood incoming! Does anyone have any experience with the Aldila Synergy wood shaft?

Sub 70 utility iron - in a higher loft, like 5 or 6. Have seen some good buzz about them.

I bought Callaway Mavrik Max three and five woods about six weeks ago and they've had a huge impact on my game. I'm 70 and I have lost a lot of distance due to age and injury. My new 18* five wood goes about 170 to 175 yards. My 22*  Mizuno JPX 850 forged four iron goes about 160 to 165. However,  the four flies fairly low. I'm thinking about adding a Callaway Mavrik Max 21* seven wood for a higher trajectory. I know some will say go with a 4 hybrid, but I've tried hybrids for years and they seem produce spectacular hooks a lot of the time.

Mini driver. I can't take losing balls off the tee anymore. 

My 3W was great today when I finally benched the driver - the rollout and staying low in the wind actually had me in front of some of the group on a few holes. 

I had an original 3Deep years ago and traded it too quickly. I'd love to have it in my closet still.

Thinking about a Toulon Las Vegas H7. Never rolled one, but my theories on why it might work:

  • I like the #7 shape, generally rolls well for me
  • I like the stroke lab weighting
  • Heard the face is soft, which i like

I just added a 7 wood to my set to replace the hybrid. Best decision I made. Working out perfectly.

Cobra King F6. I have it set to 22.5 degrees. It is a regular stock shaft in regular flex. The club launces easily, straight and lands soft. I like the adjustability of the loft as well. I set it for the 22.5degrees to fit the gap between my 5 wood and 5 iron. 

GolfEtail had it on one of those flash sales for $100.00

Can’t beat that. My Tour Edge 7wood is getting ragged. Picked it up 8 years ago in a used bargain barrel for $30.

Currently have a Cally GBB 3w in the bag and I'm wondering if a newer, slightly deeper faced 3w might give me a little bit better performance/forgiveness off the tee. I prefer adjustable, something I could loft up to around 16* or so.

Cobras intrigue me for the rails on the bottom of the sole which could be helpful if I wanted to get adventurous off the turf, but really I'd be looking for something almost exclusively off the tee. My Heavenwood pretty much handles long turf shots anyways.

Just ordered one of these. Going to put it on my LAB DF 2.1. Will allow me to grip down on my putter and lock the grip to my left wrist. Its not as drastic as arm lock and I don't think i will require any adjustments to my existing putter. My 33" putter is currently too long for me and I already grip down a lot, and i like the wrist lock concept, so i think it will work well. 

To make it work well, you do need to forward press. That is perfect for the DF 2.1, because it also requires forward press to work correctly. Normally the DF 2.1 has forward press built in to the stock grip, so i will need to make sure to setup with a forward press with this Superstroke grip, which i like to do anyway.

I tested trying to wrist lock with the stock grip on my DF 2.1, and it actually works well, so i think this Superstroke should be an improvement because of the contour.

... It is a great time to be in the market for irons. Unless you just bought new irons and the shiny new ones like these Srixon's, that look spectacular, are making you jealous. For most of us that have new irons in the last 2-3 years, there is probably nothing out there that will effect our scores or even our individual shots. Increasing our enjoyment is a completely different subject!  🤪
