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?

Waggle test is a useless test per Don Brown of PX/TT. 

Driver: PXG 0811 X+ Proto w/UST Helium 5F4

Wood: TaylorMade M5 5W w/Accra TZ5 +1/2”, TaylorMade Sim 3W w/Aldila rogue white

Hybrid: PXG Gen2 22* w/AD hybrid

Irons: PXG Gen3 0311T w/Nippon modus 120

Wedges: TaylorMade MG2 50*, Tiger grind 56/60

Putter: Scotty Caemeron Super Rat1

Ball: Titleist Prov1

The only Don Brown I know is the one that Jim Harbaugh fired.  
 

By the waggle test, I meant looking at it, enjoying its shape, looking at it again, then admiring the engineering.

I’m still thinking about a cart bag. I’d like to find one that doesn’t catch the clubs when I pull them out.

I have had this one for a couple months now. So far I've had no clubs snagging. 14 slots plus a putter well.

Back to the drawing board… LOVED the way the Callaway Mavrik Sub Zero 4w felt, and how it flew, but the shaft is just too soft. UGGGGGH! This is the first year I’ve been without a connection for fittings, so I am STRUGGLING filling this slot between driver and 20* hybrid! I’ve tried THREE times to trade the Super Hybrid to Cally Preowned, but she keeps holding on. My CPO inside guy says the ‘21 Apex Hybrid 17* is my club and to just wait until they start showing up.

I’m also waiting on a Max LS 9* that has the MMT 70X shaft to hit CPO too. I’d rather just buy a head, but I just don’t trust eBay, etc for a head. From what I’m hearing from guys who have the same Sledgehammer driver build, Max LS is unbeatable in this set-up.

Put a Ventus Black in the 4W.

Good idea, but I don’t want to spend the money for a “trial”…. I need a fitting. Ugh.

Thinking about regripping all of my clubs. Anyone have a recommendation for some mid size grips that aren't golf pride?

Lamkin UTx is one of my favorite midsize grips. I used to use it on all my clubs, right now I have them on all of my woods (irons are different) but I love the combo of comfort and tackiness.

... What have you played and liked? Grips are so personal. That said I love the ST+2 Hybrid grips. They are not "tacky" feeling but are extremely grippy and work well for someone that doesn't use a glove. Slightly larger grip under the bottom hand and comes in a mid size.

I recently tried a Winn dri tac midsized and liked that. This one looks fairly similar to that just less tacky which might be good. I've actually seen a few people talking about these lately so I might have to give them a shot. Thanks for the help guys

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.

I went from a Mizuno MP 20 Utility 4 iron to now the Srixon ZX and can say the height is unreal.  So easy to hit high and get to land soft if needed.

I just had to move back to Winn Dri-Tac's, the Lite series in fact.  I just got my irons re-shafted from Project X 6.0s to Steelfiber i95s, and putting my go-to Golf Pride MMC midsize grips on there made the swingweights a problem..  

I don't mind Dri-Tac's but they're not very durable so I'm keeping my eye out for replacement options.

Just looked up the Dri tac lites and saw that they are 23 grams. That's crazy light. I don't even know where to start with something comparable to that. Not sure if they are available, but maybe the golf pride 25s?

I’m thinking about my beloved Ping G410 LST. Currently waiting from the guy at my shop who has a call in to ping to see what they can do. Was wiping down the face in between shots today and noticed something strange. Brought the club into the shop and he confirmed what I saw and felt: the face is about to fail.  You can both see and feel it. Ugh

Ping should either repair or replace the head  If it’s not too old or shows abuse.  From what I can see from pic it’s possible weld failure. Ping is usually great with Customer Service but don’t delay.

When I had a problem with my G410 the Golf Shop just sent the club to Ping and they repaired it within 2weeks.
