Stuck in the bag: What won't you update in 2018?

I don't know if I can actually answer this question ha ha. I'd say the thing most likely to not get changed would be my irons, but never say never!!

I'm completely locked in on my irons, Hogan PTx. Also really attached to my driver, a Nike Vapor Speed but if I found a more effective one then I MIGHT consider switching.

Putter, irons, hybrids are safe - I'm replacing 2 wedges but with what I had prior.

 

If I replace fairway wood it's with something from the closet.

 

Driver is a possibility - 50/50 I would say.

OMG...that looks more like a Klingon warship then a putter.

Congrats, I wouldn't have the nerve to be seen with that in my bag.

Oh I don't have it. Just admirng it from afar. But I would have no problem putting it in the bag.

 

Matter of fact. I plan on talking to Sean and Tony at the PGA Show about a similar one from the garage if I can come up with a cool paint job. Want to have him take a quick look at my stroke to get the correct loft and length etc.

Probably can answer 917 F2 18 degree as the only thing for sure.

 

I know I should also be saying irons. But well.....you all know me better than that.

So I have to throw out my entire first post on this after getting fit the other day. The realization that I was playing the wrong shaft in all of my clubs has lead to some expensive solutions. My wife says that all mentioned clubs below "damn sure better be safe" for 2018 now  :D  :D  :D

 

Driver: Playing an old TaylorMade R7 425 with Stiff Aldila NVS. If I get a tax return though a Ping G400 is in my future.

 

3wood: Sold the Cobra to help pay for irons. Good enough tax return and I will get a G400 3 wood as well

 

3 Hybrid: Talked the golf pro down on an old demo G30 that I am super accurate with to replace my Cobra F7's for sale. We'll see

 

Irons: Waiting on a set of Titleist AP2's to show up with F4 Recoils in them. Keeping the Srixons though so a shaft swap might be in order. Time will tell.

 

Wedges: Went back to my Vokeys. Loved the forgiveness on the Cleveland CBX's but after multiple rounds I could never get a feel for them on in between shots. Just a little too vague for my liking.

 

Putter: Edel E3. This thing isn'g going anywhere! LOVE LOVE LOVE it! Best $375 I have ever spent.

Right now the Driver, Hybrid, Putter, ball, all are safe for now.

If the new F8 driver can kick the Fly Z + out of the bag.

Can't wait to hear about those AP2's with the recoil.

I'm very happy with Recoils in my irons. A very brief, very limited test of their woods shaft in a 3W and a 5W not as much.

Well took care of that putter. Replaced that Odyssey with a Cameron. Hopefully wedges will be soon.

Bag is finished!! Got some early Christmas gifts from the wife. Got me two new wedges. Mack Daddy Forged Slate Sand Wedge and Lob Wedge. After I get my clubs cleaned up for their winter rest I'll post a WITB. BTW Callaway Pre-Owned is having a sell on wedges and putters. Buy one get one free.

Elements or Elements Chrome? I got fitted into a Tour 65 for the G400 driver and GolfWRX says it is a UST designed shaft based on the Elements line. Curious to hear your experience with the shaft.

HOLY.

 

COW.

 

The difference between the Recoil 95's and the Steelfibers is night and day. Got my AP2's in today and they just came alive with these shafts. Had demoed them with KuroKage graphite (meh) before but wow did they feel great with these.

 

Was hitting them so good on the range that I went out and played a quick 9. Hit 8 greens and the only one I didn't "hit" was a par 5 that I drove it into the water on. Hit a 7 iron to 8 feet on 2 First Iron Shot AP2 12 1 2017.JPG

and a PW to a foot PW 12 1 2017.JPG  on 9 for birdies. I hope work calms down so i can put these through more paces tomorrow!

Definitely keeping my 565 irons and my TM M2 Driver. Looking to build up a new wedge set and also try some new hybrids. Putter, I have to think about it.

(this is an update of an earlier post)

 

4H (XR), 5h (tho I did upgrade to the current year version of the Ping Crossover) and irons (Cobra King OS 6-9i). Plus the MLA Tour XDream

 

Woods subject to change - eg. may drop the 5W and go back to an old 3H; and wedges - probably changing to ones with graphite shafts.

Driver: Wilson Triton

3W & 5W: Cleveland HiBore XLS

4H: Adams Idea Super

Irons (5-AW): Nike Slingshot 4D

SW & LW Cleveland 588 RTX

Putter: Taylormade Rosa Monte Carlo

 

At this point they all seem safe. The Triton is new (replaced a HiBore XL) and I'm very happy with it. Looks like, club-wise, a stable year. I just had everything re-gripped so that gives them all new life.

Most of the bag should be safe for 2018, with three possible exceptions:

 

  • Nike Covert 2.0 driver (Wishon S2S Red) - SAFE
  • Wishon 775HS hybrids (2, 3, 4, 5) (Wishon S2S Red Hybrid) - probably SAFE, but I may replace the 2-hybrid with a 5-wood at some point
  • Wishon 979SS irons (6, 7) (Wishon S2S Red Iron) - SAFE
  • Wishon 979SS irons (8, 9, P) (Wishon S2S Stepless Steel) - SAFE
  • Ping Glide wedges (50°SS, 54°SS, 58°ES) (Ping CFS Wedge) - probably SAFE, but I may replace the 58°ES with the same model in the Glide 2.0 line at some point
  • Ping Scottsdale TR Piper C putter - probably SAFE, but I'm coveting an Evnroll ER2CS

Driver: Ping G400 Max (10.5°) - Wishon S2S Red Wood R
Hybrids: Wishon EQ1-NX (20°, 24°) - Wishon S2S Red Hybrid R
Irons: Wishon EQ1-NX (6i-9i) - Wishon S2S Red Iron R
Wedges: Cleveland CBX 2 (46°, 52°), Cleveland CBX Full-Face (58°, 64°) - Project X LZ 5.5
Putter: Ping DS72 C and/or Sub70 005 Wide Blade CS
