What equipment are you thinking about?

Considering I eventually want to dip my toe into competitions, and I somewhat recently found out that my R7TP irons are not post-2010 conforming, I will need a new set. And as much as I would love some P7TWs, P730s, or P7MCs... My wallet hurts just thinking about them. (Still keep my eyes open for deals of course haha) So these are looking pretty good.

So, I don’t know if you know this.  But I loved my Bridgestone XW-1 Wedges very much, mostly because they were forged. 
 

have you seen the shape of the Jaws Forged wedges? I can’t stomach paying a ridiculous amount for them, but @ Rahmbo if you have an extra set you didn’t win the US Open with, I know a guy.

Thinking of a new 3w since mine is 5 years old and it’s starting to show signs of falling apart the hozle is starting to come apart. After how this sub70 hybrid is playing so far I really want to try a 3w from them now, but we will see.

shaft search continues. i’ve been scouring ebay and the classifieds for my shaft and no luck. my old shop might have one in stock, they’re getting back to me tomorrow about it. 

in the meantime i’ve been reading up on the KuroKage XD which looks like the latest version of my shaft. seems like it’s the same general profile, with a slightly stiffer tip. so if i can’t find mine anywhere i think this is the route i’ll go

Thinking about graphite shafts for irons and wedges. Noticed being sore just above my right elbow the day after 27 holes in 48 hours. Either that or I need to shallow my swing at impact more to not crater the earth. Inspired by @edingc sub70 build has only added to the interest

Shotscope.   The recent strokes gained metrics has it on my list.  Arccos is a definite no with their yearly subscription. 

Also thinking about a putting mirror to help work on setup.  Trying out a seemore putter which has forced a change to my setup so I want to get a mirror of some kind just to check positions.

I have really liked shot scope and I agree on the yearly subscription, especially up north were I can't play for half the year. The analytics have really expanded and they even just introduced comparing to other handicaps besides a tour pro. Plus I already wear a watch so no problem there.

Not cratering the earth definitely helps (i used to have that issue), but regardless graphite is easier on the body.

Or you can go with the cheaper, but not as effective solution of putter foam dampeners in the steel shafts. Not perfect but better.

... Foam inserts make a difference in feel but do not help with vibration dampening that can prevent tendonitis and other ailments. About 20 years ago when I developed some serious tendonitis in my right elbow after dedicating fall golf to playing knockdowns for every shot so I could master it in windy Chicago conditions. They usually stop watering in the fall and the fairways get very dry and firm and I paid the price. I tried every insert sold as well as some highly recommended home made solutions and non helped at all. Doc had me take 3 months off and when I returned to playing in the spring I re-shafted with graphite and had no problems. 

... I have only played graphite in my irons ever since but after playing some Nippon 950GH shafts in a few sets including my King Tours, tendonitis returned in my elbow so I installed Steelfiber 95's in my Cobra's. Hopefully my tendonitis starts to fade away.
