What equipment are you thinking about?

Brought this old friend out today and well, it was a convenient solution for the time being. The friendly flight I was always a fan of and in contrast, certainly rose to the occasion. 
 

I won’t be selling the SIM2 but I also won’t be playing it for a while. It may have been longer but the g400 ballflight was everything I missed. Tighter dispersion and it would climb and then just soar at a lovely altitude. 
 

I’d say explore other shafts to dial in the Ping but that g400 was the final edition of that particular shaft tip and I don’t want to mess around with that. 
 

So for the time being, this is taking the place of what I was thinking about.

Build a full bag oF PXG gen 5 and forged wedges and it will seem much more affordable than needing to win the lottery.  😂

Lmao! It’s actually only a little more actually than what I paid for my iron set, fitting and super hybrid (sub70 that is ). Not bad for 12 clubs vs 9.

Ready to pull the plug and order a new set of irons: Cobra King Forged Tec Irons - 4 thru PW with Aerotech Steelfiber I95cw shafts. Went and hit them on Saturday, they were sweet...

 

... Good luck, I think you will love them. I have been playing the FT's 5-pw with Steelfiber i80's and very impressed with performance and feel. Not quite in the MIM category for sweet, dense feel but for a fully forged hollow headed iron they are quite soft.

... My snowbird playing pard did a full fitting with Callaway and bought the entire bag. Jury is still out on irons and hybrids as far as improving his game but the Rogue Max driver/5 wood have made a huge difference over his old RBZ. He is at least 20yds longer and straighter with the Max. Of course he was fit for the Rogue Max and his old driver was bought off the shelf. 

I pulled the trigger on the Rogue today.  Went to a fitting event at St Andrews in West Chicago today and I think I've got a winner!

Thinking about grabbing a demo Sub70 utility iron for the PNW Spy meetup next month - could be a great tool for Wine Valley. 
 

Also need new shoes between now and then, since the sole is separating on my CodeChaos Sports - the FootJoy Traditions with the shield tip have really caught my eye.

I own a pair of these.  Very Comfortable and I love the wingtip style.

Looking at these Sqairz - Sir Nick Faldo 11s Limited Edition - really like the colors and pattern. it's the $50 up charge that I have the issue with at the moment.

I really need a new bag, mine is no telling how old and starting to fall apart.  Clubs get snagged in the dividers every time I use it.  So I'm looking at a 14 way Big Max Dri Lite Summit stand bag, in UGA red and black, of course!

New irons… think I should wait for the next JPX line but I wouldn’t mind testing out the mizuno pro. I do want to dip my toes into PXG irons, likely a previous year model for pricing purposes. I question whether I need to think about graphite as my body does have a harder time playing in back to back days, plus I feel things much more this year than last

... Hard to beat the pricing on PXG Gen 3's. You may find a player or 2 that went from steel to graphite and switched back but there are many more that wonder why it took them so long to switch. Playing 4 to 5 times a week my body could not handle steel even if I wanted to play them. So many great graphite iron options and considering the best ball strikers in the world on the LPGA play graphite more often than steel ought to assuage your trepidation. I don't think Jin Young Ko's record of 63 greens in a row will ever be equaled and she did it using Steelfiber shafts.

Why go older model when the current 0211 are some of the best irons in the market and cost less than everyone. Plus they offer several good options in the graphite market

Graphite isn't just for the older golfer with aches and pains.   Graphite shafts in irons can be equal to or better than steel in many cases.   Do you question graphite in driver, fairway woods, hybrids?  The only drawback would be cost.
