The 21 0211 irons, they look great and can be had for $95 per club!

STOP IT!!
You’re killin’ me!! I love the PXG looks but luckily haven’t seen or tried any LH PXG or I’d have them by now.

Intrigued by the concept of MOI matching. A lot of the details are a bit over my head until i read in more detail, but i am intrigued by the idea of longer irons being shorter than if using a typical .5" gapping.

Thinking about the Cleveland frontline putters. A bit techy but sounds like they work. I could also likely sell my Vegas and get a front line and still come out ahead.

I went to DSG on lunch yesterday and hit the epic speed LS and good lawd! It felt so good, that MMT shaft super smooth! They have a 50% bonus on trades right now, but I’m not sure I want to still spend $300. Also tried the oddessy two ball TT and the 10. The roll was really nice on both but I found all the top lines really distracting and busy. Plus they both felt so heavy in the head with the stroke lab shaft.

Everyone needs to stop talking about the super hybrid. Makes me keep thinking is would be a great 3w replacement. Fortunately they are expensive; so my cheap self keeps saying no, and there are no 17* models on CPO.

Still may need to go to the local store and hit one........

I’m not helping, BUT, I have one guy at CPO and he was able to send a request to the warehouse that as soon as a 17* came in, to let him know. I was changing the shaft anyway, so I just needed a head. Within 3 days I got the call that he had one. Sooooooo, it’s possible to get a 17*....

Shortly after i posted that response a 17* was on the site; I even put it in my cart. Didn’t pull the trigger.

I can’t pick a putting mat. Some have alignment aids and are thin. Some allow for break but have no aids. 
 

thinking maybe the birdieball (thanks mgs) one and a chalk line

They’re pretty special irons, Rick. If you ever have any questions about them, don’t hesitate to PM me.

I sold @cksurfdudeso hard on them you’d think I was getting a commission. It sounds like he loves his as much as I do mine!

The Srixons can help a bit if shots are very slightly on the fat side, but probably won't make that much of a difference if you tend to hit super fat.

Not golf related this time. Who here has a good baseball glove?

Mine is really worn down and my son is getting to the age where we can actually play catch. Figure I should get a good one now that should last me the rest of my life.

I’ve been looking at the Rawlings Heart of the Hide and Wilson A2000 lines. It’s a little more difficult To find lefty stuff to try, but I have seen a few sales on “prior year styles” although besides the leather color they don’t really change much.

Wilson A2000 is the gold standard these days it seems. Exceptional quality and functional practicality. Nothing fancy, simple and well made. I have a Zett Custom from my playing days back in the 90’s. Wilson and Rawlings tend to be a little stiffer and require more breaking-in initially than Zett, Nocona, or Mizuno. At least that’s been my experience.

Thanks [mention]RickyBobby_PR [/mention] and [mention]sixcat [/mention]

Seems us lefties don’t have many options for “utility” gloves. I don’t really need a 12.5-13 inch outfield glove, but I don’t really love “pitchers” gloves because my understanding is they have less padding and have more basic padding and web options.

I’ve seen a few good deals on some Rawlings Heart of the Hide and Pro Preferred. Not as many on A2000s. I’ll keep my eyes out.
