I've been waiting for this thread to pop up.   This is like getting mad at luxury and exotic car makers for not producing cheap cars.   Spoiler alert: You're not in their target market

For the life of me I've never understood the concept of the "average golfer" or the " common golfer."   So this is $2k for the experience, it is what it is. It doesn't mean you can't buy, or OEM'

How anyone can make a judgement about these wedges without hitting them is beyond me...     I'm gonna quote Steve Martin. "Criticize things you don't know about. Be Oblong and have your knees remove

And you gotta remember where I live. I don't get out much. So when that chrome and brushed finish popped up on my screen it was like being blinded by the light. Finally got to go hit some different stuff, and I'm finding that my take on golf equipment is sh!t and I need to expand my horizon a little. [emoji3]

I'm just glad to see JP is still alive and well. If you read back through here a bit, I do I fact like his old stuff way better. I'm hoping for some custom stuff out of his shop. Not that I'll be able to get it, but it would be nice to see that work again. Plus, if you are "THAT GOOD" that Titleist put their logo on the hosel... you are doing something right.

I read _everything_ in the MGS forum, full stop. Maybe my prior query wasn't clear, you hated them initially; now you seem to love them. We all obviously have the right to change our opinions, but you were at one end of the spectrum and now you're at the opposite. I was just curious what specifically motivated the extreme change of heart?

Not sure. Like I said I wanted the old stuff to come back. But I also wanted the the old Mustang look back when they went to the "Bullet" look in the early 2000's but now I want that look back over this new one.

 

My point is. There is a song for this: https://youtu.be/7S94ohyErSw

Actually in hindsight, it is hilarious!!   But with all the random robo posting that people do in wrong threads wanting to post, it's understandable, I had the same reaction as Barbajo. 

 

But well played!!

The only thing that frustrates me is that I am not in the target market. This would be a bucket list thing for me and I would probably never hit the wedges.

Cool and thanks. But I meant an actual logo with my real initials like his.

 

But appreciate it. Looks good!!

I guess it was a swing and a miss on the joke.

LOL, I tried this joke in a different thread once--it's tough to convey as a joke though without someone taking it at face value.
