What equipment are you thinking about?

Thinking it may be time for a new bag. Went to grab my clubs this morning and found the legs had splayed and it was all on the ground. It didn't give me much confidence in continuing to use my current bag. Now to figure out what to get next.

I just saw those and those look smooth right there. Wonder if the face will still be raw. The picture did not look rusted but of course those are likely pretty new.

I hope not.  I thought that was kind of dumb , and was the main reason I didn’t buy them.  I love the shape of TM wedges.  If the whole thing was raw that is ok, but just the face… meh.

Got $46 in credit I need to spend by the end of the month, eyeing some used TaylorMade Ghost putters or perhaps one of those spider-type ones like this putter just to have something different to mess around with.

What haven't I been looking at? Seems like every time I play well, I get the bug to buy new equipment with hopes to play better still:

Wedges: I love the Cobra MIM Blacks. But they are starting to wear down a bit due to the number of rounds on them combined with my practice. Leaning toward just ordering another set of MIM Blacks and building them up for a "gamer" set, while keeping the older two for practice. But I'm torn because I'm hoping for Cobra to release a MIM wedge but with Snakebite grooves and in the copper finish 😍.

4 Utility Iron: I've been hitting my long irons pretty well but could use a bit more height. I also might entertain hitting a 4 Utility from the tee more often if I had one. I've been hitting the 4 iron a bit more and it's a good club choice on a few holes.

Irons: I love my Sub70s but the Apex Pro 21s are piquing my interest. As a stop gap, I may just need to look into contacting Sub70 to see if I can get some 699 Pro 5+6 iron heads. I'm not a fan of the offset in the non-Pro 699s compared to the 7-AW in my combo set.

MIM Wedges in Copper would be awesome.  Previously I have gamed the SM4 (or was it 5) with the gold-ish finish, and copper colored cleveland's before that.  I'm always drawn towards a different finish in the wedges!

Thinking about some True Linkswear Trueknit II’s, navy blue.  They look comfortable, and not like golf shoes.

 

Seriously, why are golf shoes more hideous than bowling shoes?  Some of them anyways.

I was just thinking that @jlukes MIM Black wedges with the vinegar treatment look like they’d pair nicely with the copper irons, might be another option if the copper wedges aren’t forthcoming.

i’m considering swapping out my t100 4 and 5 iron for the new t200 4 and 5. 

bent a little weak they’d blend perfectly and a little extra forgiveness in the long irons is always good.

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

TS3 3 wood.  They have a used one on the rack at the local DSG...  

 

The waggle test, and the looks behind the ball… serious contender to kick the SLDR TS out of the bag.  😍

 

I should support my local economy right?  Right?
