... So much fun being fit for drivers and shafts. Looking forward to hearing how it goes! 

They had a 15% off Dad’s day coupon…if I am going anywhere, why not somewhere with such a great selection…I’ll let you know how it goes 🙂

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.  

Cost is really the biggest drawback for me. Shelling out probably close to 800-1k just for irons with steel and then add the up charge for graphite can be a kick in the pocket book

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

I have no problem looking at them. My eye just fits for of the gen 4 offerings. From doing a little research the fitting process seems affordable and I do have a local rep. Looking at the heavier graphite iron options it looks like it’s limited to the aero tech 115. Everything else seems to be in the 75-80g range. That’s what the fitting process is for though!

Thinking of some new irons. Been losing some distance and I haven’t had enough time to practice so using blades no matter how much they fit my eye has been keeping me from breaking 90. I don’t think it’s the shaft I enjoy what I hit and I don’t get any whippy feelings like I have in other shafts. I do believe that it’s time to suck it up and buy something that fits my game better no matter how much I enjoy looking down at blades.

I haven't played blades in a coons age as my game is not suited for those type irons .   I will say once I figured out my Cleveland irons I have been totally swept up with em.   I started out with the Hy-wood and then the snow ball fell down the mountain with me becoming a Cleveland homer......   These irons have a soft almost forged feel off the face and distance I'm getting is eye opening. Hopefully you can find something that will give you the confidence you need to move to the next level in your game.

OG good to hear from ya. I’m looking at players distance clubs maybe sub70 I had great luck with the hybrid I tested of theirs. I’m going to do a fitting soon for irons to see what shaft to go with something like that.

I'm loving my new CLK 4 hybrid so much I'm looking to add the 5 hybrid. I haven't had any luck finding the same shaft on the used market, so I may have to spring for a new one.

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.

Still the best driver Ping made IMO.  Even though I like my G410, it’s just not quite the 400

Looking for a new driver. While I love the Cobra F8, I think it's time to look into something newer that can give me a bit more distance.  Could be the shaft I'm using in the F8 but I figure I might as well see what's out there.

I completely agree.  Even in a few years if I have some swing problems, I could totally see myself bringing this one back in play.

Excuses are why we need a sense of humor!

Working on a new swing:  Nope! Still working on new swing; can it be called an old swing now?
Back/knee/shoulder injury:  Back always hurts; Doc says my other knee needs to be replaced.
New clubs:  Yep!  3 new FW since last year; 3W, Heavenwood, 9W
Different shaft:  Nope!
Need new grips:  Nope!  Got my tried and true Pure DTX midsize.
Just started lessons:  Will start with Monte after my hitting bay addition to my house is complete.
and the old standby ... Drank too much!:  Probably just the opposite!  Kinda quit this year.

Funny you should mention shoulder injury.  @Thin2win's wife was going to play, but she just injured her shoulder and surgery is likely.

 I'm rebuilding my golf swing and bag right now.  I've used the same clubs (except for driver) since I was young and thin.  My swing is essentially the same now that I'm old and fat, but it needs some serious work.  After a few tries, I've broken 100 and haven't shot over it again.  At my best, I'm in that 85-95 corridor.

I've got my eye on :Sub70: 699/699 pro combo set for irons.  The BH-5s I'm playing have been solid, but since my swing speed is still pretty fast (100-115 with driver), I'd like to take advantage of technology for some extra yards.  This will happen within the next 3-6 months.  I'm also starting to eye up their 3-woods as I currently don't have one.

After that, I'll be looking at replacing my 30-year old :ping-small: putter.  Finally, after some much needed instruction, I'll decide on a driver that I can hit straight.  Distance doesn't interest me as much as accuracy. The Epic driver I have now works just fine since I literally have no idea where the ball is going to go.

By next summer, I'd like to have a complete bag of clubs that I love.  Then maybe a new bag.  Yeah, that's the ticket.

Sadly, yes!  I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes last year after getting my covid shot.  Never got covid, but helluva price to play.
