WITB - Ft. Worth, TX!

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

My first WITB kicks off with an anti-climactic "it's not actually in my bag because it's getting a new shaft".

My current driver is an Adams Speedline Super S 10.5 cranked down to 9.5 with a soon to be 60 gram X-Stiff shaft and tour velvet grip. What is currently sitting in the bag holding the SuperS's place is my Taylormade R580xd 9 (non conforming now i believe....oops) with the stock stiff shaft that I got back in high school second hand. I have special place for this bad boy, and it still holds up pretty well on the tee box even thought its 17 years old now. 

My 3 wood and 3 hybrid match up with the aforementioned SuperS, both in matrix 65's. 

3-PW are my ready to retire Taylormade Rac OS II's in the stock stiff shafts. I plan on going through a full iron fitting this year and replacing these, some people tell me that a 15 year old set of irons couldn't possibly keep up with the technology of today....how dare they 🙂 ? 

52 and 56 wedges are my Calloway MD3's both in S grind with stiff true temper golds, the grooves are still fairly sharp but they may go along with the OS II's when I get fit.

The putter and probably a most embarrassing piece of the puzzle is the Wilson BlackJack 206 but it's one of the best areas of my game and if it works...I'm probably going to keep with it.

I've been playing a Calloway supersoft recently but I'll be throwing a box of TP5's in this weekend at the recommendation of a friend.

I'm happy to answer any questions, or take a suggestion or 2 for the new iron set!

@PMookie It was such a good year for Irons with Taylormade, I think they still hold up to alot of what is out today. Certainly when you account for the traditional lofts these had!

Descriptions are in the signature. My irons are 20 years old and still play great but I'm surely losing a bit of distance. Added an inch to my 7 thru LW a few years ago and switched to jumbo grips and stuck with it.

Never been fit but hope to have the chance soon. Still manage to knock it around pretty well with these guys
