My WITB: Finally finished updating my bag

Recommended Posts

Nice looking bag! Shame those Nike irons never felt right to me. Looked good

I'm used to playing Ping Eye 2s which have a pretty thin top line. Anything that is too thick just throws me off at address. I love the feel of these when I pure them, especially the 8i and below. Contemplating going stiffer in shaft to like a 105 S300 to see what kind of ball flight I would get (mine is a little high) but these are doing well for me right now.

I've heard lots of good things about them and I tried them not long after they'd come out and I had a chance to hear opinions, but just didn't do it for me

Finally finished going through my clubs and updating. As some of you might know, I stopped playing golf for about 6 years, and the last time I played regularly was probably 10 years ago. Fell back in love with the sport after my first round back 2 months ago, but playing the same sticks I've had since high school wasn't exciting, so over the last 2 months I've worked through all of them and replaced everything!

 

Old setup:

Callaway 454 Big Bertha

Callaway Big Bertha 3W (the original ones)

4-PW Ping Eye 2

Callaway X-12 gap wedge

Cleveland SW - don't remember the name

Ping b60i - the original isopur one from the 90s

 

Now on to the good stuff:

Callaway GBB Epic 10.5 HZRDUS 6.0

Callaway XR16 3W Fujikura Speeder S-flex

TaylorMade M2 22* Stock R-flex

Nike Vapor Pro Combo 5-AW

Callaway MD3 56-10 & 60-8

Evnroll ER-7

 

Wow!  That's quite an upgrade from your previous setup.  Nice looking sticks... have fun out there.

Nice setup! How do you like M2? Tinkering with idea of new hybrid

I've never been a great long iron hitter, since I was a kid. I guess it carried on into my adult game as well. I used to rock all the way up to a 7 wood when I was young. These hybrids are new to me since I was out of the game for so long.

 

I hit it at a TM demo and I really liked it once I figured out you should play it like an iron and not a fairway wood. I went R-flex because I like the way I can get it in the air more vs. when I was hitting the stiff. Stiff shaft was producing lower more penetrating flights, but that's not my style so to speak. I don't like playing the roll out when I'm coming into a green, I like predictability and I get a little bit more out of this vs. a 5 wood, and even more so since I can get this one to fly higher with the R-flex.

 

The sound is a *little* tinny, which was surprising considering the M2 driver and 3W sounded so nice when I demo'd them.

 

I love the look of the M lineup. I'm one of those guys that would use something because it looks sick, and I would have a matching M2 driver if I didn't bomb the Epic at my fitting. I think the fitter I had at Callaway did a better job matching me than the TM guy did (TM didn't even have a trackman) so perhaps I could have had the M2 driver as well, but that's way off topic. Back to the looks of the M2, it's badass. End of story.

 

There's my little mini review on the m2 hybrid I have :)

      This is my first post so here goes! 
      Driver: Callaway Big Bertha Epic 9* - Graffaloy Blue 75x Shaft 45"
      3 Wood: Callaway Big Bertha Epic 13.5* - Project X HZRDS Black Handcrafted 75g 6.5 
      Hybrid: Titleist 816H2 19* - Aldila Rogue Max 85g x
      Irons: Mizuno MP-18 SC 4-6 & Mizuno MP-18 MB 7-PW - Project X 6.5 Shafts - 3up + 1" 
      Wedges: Titleist Vokey SM7 50*, 54* and 58* - Dynamic Gold X100 shafts +3/4"
      Putter: EVNROLL 1.2 Tour 36" - with Stability Shaft
       
      Ball - Taylormade TP5x or Bridgestone Tour B XS
      Glove - Footjoy Sci-Flex
       
      Thinking about changing a few clubs out, the Driver, the 3-wood and the hybrid. 
      Looking at getting either the Ping G410 or the Cobra F9 driver. The Taylormade M5 3-wood and the Taylormade P790 UDI 2 Iron instead of the hybrid. 
       
      Here's a video of me hitting the M5 3 wood, it's a beast! Was loving the Project X HZRDS Black Handcrafted 85g 6.5 shaft that it had in it, felt more stable than my 75g one.

      Just added a few new clubs to start off 2019.   New as of this week are TS2 Driver and 16.5 FW,  (Both with S Evenflow shafts) AP3 6-PW, 48 Red AMT shaft S
      Replacing:
      Titleist 917 Fujikura TS Driver S
      Titleist 915F Diamana White S
      Titleist 918 AP1 red AMT shaft S
      Why:
      Speed!  The TS was a significant increase 3-5 mph ball speed more on the driver 
      Irons replaced because I could not cut the AP1.   AP1 was a phenomenal club.   Hit them well!   I could not work right to left on a bet!   Slight draw bias. 
      Staying In The Bag:
      Titleist 818H1 21 & 25 deg, Red Tensei S 
      Vokey 52F, 56S, 60D
      Scotty Cameron Futura 5.5 34”
       
      Future Aquisition:
      Scotty Cameron Phantom X 5.5 (ordered but won’t deliver until mid April)
       
      IF I didn’t play what I’m playing now:
      Cobra Speedback Driver
      TM M5 FW
      Ping Hybrids
      Ping 210 irons
      Ping Glide 2.0 wedges
      Evenroll 7 Putter

      Alright, so after playing for 25ish years, I finally got fit for clubs. I’m 32 years old. I don’t have the shaft information on me at the moment, but I hope you find it interesting nonetheless. 
      Driver: Wilson C300 Stiff Flex 9 degrees, but I’ve got it adjusted to 10
      Fairway Wood: Cobra F8 Regular Flex 5-6 wood. It’s set to 18.5 degrees
      Irons: Wilson Staff D7 Regular Flex 5-GW
      Wedges: Cleveland CBX 52, 56, 60
      Putter: Tommy Armour Impact No.3
      Ball: Cut Grey
      So I consider myself a middle handicapper. I can easily shoot low to mid 80’s. However, I recently was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease in my back. So in order to extend my playing time I’ve taken quite a bit off my swing. Because I’m still adjusting to a new swing, I wanted clubs much more forgiving but I wouldn’t lose too much distance. The brand new D7 irons have offered me the best combination of long distance and good accuracy. I know their lofts are jacked but since I slowed my swing, I technically haven’t lost any distance off the iron number. I have the same philosophy with the wedges. My fitter handed me the CBX wedges and I was blown away by how consistently I was hitting them the same distances. As little as I’m getting to play, once a month, I’m not looking to shape too many shots, I just want to go straight. I’m always kinda an underdog guy so you’ll pretty much never find anything Taylormade/Callaway/Ping/Titleist in my bag. I can’t stand the elitist attitude in golf that knocks statistically proven great clubs because they’re not made by a big 4 OEM. My favorite club in the bag is the Tommy Armour putter. I hit hundreds of puts that day and it even blew away the Evnroll for me. I’m not a tall guy either, barely 5’7”, so everything is shaved down 1/4 of an inch to 1/2 an inch. You’ll notice I only have 13 clubs. I’m very satisfied with my 5 wood and 5 iron as my long clubs so I’m considering adding a PM Grind 64 degree wedge for lobs once the new model comes out in February (I know it’s made by Callaway lol). Let me know what y’all think!
