WITB - LeftyMatt89 Revision 2 12/28/20


Recommended Posts

WITB 

Driver: TS3 8.5 at C3 setting (Waiting on TSi3 8* to be delivered) Fujikura Ventus Blue 7x or Diamana ZF 60TX

Hybrid: G410 2 Hybrid with Fujikura Ventus Blue 9x 

Driving Iron: Callaway UT 21 degrees bent to 19, KBS Proto 105X

Irons: 4-PW T100s (bent 1 degree weak) Project X 7.0 

Wedges: SM8 50.12, SM7 54.08 and 60 Hi-Toe all Project X 6.5

Putter: Scotty Cameron Newport 2 Stability Shaft or Piretti Cottonwood II

Ball: Srixon XV

 

Currently waiting on my new TSi3 before I do a final show down on what shaft to put in the bag for next season. I am getting the TSi3 with a Tensei Raw White 75x tipped an inch as a potential contender. Ventus Blue 7x tipped an inch has been a fairway finder thus far in my TS3 and is the front runner for staying in the bag when I get the new driver. Biggest surprise this year was replacing my TS2 15 for the G410 hybrid, the combo with the Ventus Blue 9x is a game changer. The hybrid is much easier to flight and gets through the rough more reliably. I put the T100s in the bag after playing 714 and 716 AP2 for the majority of the past few seasons. I have also tried Srixon z765 and Mizuno JPX 919 forged. T100s gives me the exact flight I am looking for and with the Project X 7.0, they have been the best set of irons I have ever owned. I have set distances and I know the ball will be the distance I want when a good swing is put on. My wife made me the SM8 custom with all our family names. This is my first custom club with stamping. The putter section has been a love hate relationship for me, I am currently deciding between a 2018 Newport 2 with a stability shaft and a Piretti Cottonwood II. The greens are slow right now, so the Piretti has been more consistent as the putter is heavier and for me easier to control. I’ve read a ton of articles on MGS just have never participated in the forum until now. I am excited to hop in and love learning about new tech and trying new golf equipment. Tinkering and buying new clubs/shafts are part of the fun for me and I look forward to learning more from MGS.

I love it. I had avoided hybrids in the past until this year and having the ventus blue, the ball just wants to stay straight. My fear of hooking a hybrid has gone and I can go after a ball and hit a high fade into par 5s. I liked the hybrid with Ventus so much that it made me get rid of my fairway woods.

Haha I wish I could swing as consistently as Matt from TXG. Just a former college baseball player with an aggressive transition. My 7 iron swing speed is 96-100 depending on the day.

Nice been curious... but I have a g410 3h with the GD-AD-DI 95x in the flat setting... if its not broke don’t fix it... have you tried the Nippon Gost?

I have not. I like ad di profile and graphite design makes top notch shafts. If it’s working then I’d keep it. I haven’t tried gost yet but am pretty interested in it. I like the flat setting too for the g410 woods. It really helps with keeping the ball on the target line.

Got an extra GOST sitting around somewhere .370 tip I have one for windy days... Got sent 2 by accident and was told to keep it... love the flat setting in the g410

Makes sense. Have you ever tried the modus 120TX? I had a set with the tx and it was basically a firmer 120x with better dispersion for me. I know Matt played the TX previously.

Funny you say that... my sig is not my current bag... but my new irons already have 120TX just need to get the time to install them... tried bunch of stuff except the kbs tour v tour spec 130 TX and the new $taper ht... also when I say a little quicker transition it’s more of a violent nature...I am working on uping my tempo in the back swing a bit to be more smooth into transition... just a process

Those are great iron shafts for sure. You won’t be disappointed. I’ve been happy with project x 7.0 but miss the smoothness of Nippon. I have a similar aggressive transition probably due to D1 college baseball. I’m sure you have the same issue can hit it a mile but can also have bad misses.

So similar in many ways hockey and baseball transitioning to golf... you are probably much much stronger than me... I make up the difference in quickness...  over the last year been working really hard and I am down to a -4 HDCP... going from here has been so tough... Dude your not kidding on bad misses... when I miss it’s big and bad

So I may have gotten bored or over the project x 7.0 shafts. They were great on full swings but not so good on knockdowns. 
 

I traded for a set of 921 SEL with CTaper 130x. Definitely shafts I like. Also picked up a set of 718 cb/mb. Here’s to some fun testing before spring season.
