Bag is set for 2021 challenge


Recommended Posts

I'd love to say my bag is set, but I'm not so sure.  I have a tendency to wander sometimes.  I will say, it's got a better chance this year than it has for many, many years.  I'm not sure what would be changing.  That being said, I will likely swap my RTX4 58/3 for the RTX4 58/9 when the weather warms up and the courses aren't so wet.  I don't consider that a club change since it's only the bounce I'm changing for.

WITB:

Taylormade SIM2 Max 9° w/ PX HZRDUS Smoke Black 6.0, 60g @ 45"

TM V-Steel 5wd w/ Aldila Rogue Max 85x (holding down the fort until I can acquire a new fairway wood)

Srixon Z765 irons w/ PX LZ 6.0 (holding down the fort until I can get new irons)

Cleveland RTX-4 58/03

Odyssey SL EXO Marxman

Pondering:

Epic Speed 4wd or SIM2 Max 3HL

Callaway UT

Srixon irons (some combination of ZX5, ZX7, and forged) likely with Aerotech i95 or i110 stiff shafts

Either RTX Zipcore or CBX2 wedge(s)

All set, mean green is ready to roll.

No club changes, though I did order a new Vokey 58. Same one I've been using for about 12 years, just swap in a new one every 3-5 seasons. This time I got the black finish. Vokey stopped making the L Grind in the 58 so I'm limited to what's available still on ebay.

Testors offers most of their paints as a marker so that's the number fill. It needs touched up after each season, but the marker was like $4 so it's ok.20210216_144916.jpeg20210217_113812.jpeg

Have done something similar this winter, just went with the blue for the grips. Looking forward to the cord feel and 'unleashing the power' or whatever else they marketed them as. They do feel nice though.

I've used midsize grips for years. These are very comfortable in my hands and very durable.

Matty, you switched out of your Mizzy's?!? Wow, those Srixon's must have really put on a show! 🤣  Seems like everyone who's tried them falls in love with them though so I suppose you're in good company. 

I couldn’t believe either. They wowed me from first hit. More forgiving and still look great with a penetrating flight even bent weak.

You're not the first I've heard say that!  Lots of people are raving about them.  Have to give a review of them.

The Wilson D7 Forged irons are safe.
The wedges will most certainly be replaced.  It's time.
Driver is on thin ice, as always.
Three wood is fine.
Four wood will undoubtedly be in and out of the bag repeatedly over the course of the year, as it is every year.
The putter is interesting.  It's ancient, and I'm sure there's something better out there, but I can't imagine getting rid of it.
