I'm thinking of getting an old f6 baffler to replace my current 5 wood also

I like it but I think I’m gonna replace it with a bigger headed 4w. Same shaft length though. Just want a little more forgiveness in the head

I have done that but I don't like the flatter lie that playing with a shortened shaft results in which is why I wanted a club that's 41.5 stock length

I ended up getting the old black one 4 utility and a SZ 4/5 adjustable one hybrid to put up against each other for a spot in the bag.

The utility as a 5 and the hybrid as a 4 is also a potential option. just need them to a) arrive and b) open up the range in the UK so i can get some testing in now...

URGHH!!!! This lock down is driving me crazy.

I have set the one length SZ hybrid to 21.5*, and the one length black utility set to 22.5*, to put head to head to see which will be my get out of jail distance club but I cant test them anywhere. I figure those lofts would put them in similar launch windows. I would like to try them at a Top Tracer driving range first to get some baseline numbers in terms of carry and flight characteristics and play with the settings to maximize the distances with both. Then try them in different lies and off the tee etc. to see which i get on with better and which proves the most versatile.

I'm tempted to sneak on to a local golf course on one of the holes that are out of the way but knowing my luck i'll end up caught and fined. I'm losing my mind sitting around the house all day every day though.

Catching up on my MGS reading between periods of tonight’s lightning game.

I used to game two drivers when I played 90 percent of my rounds on a course in Indiana. Just subbed stuff in when I travelled to balance stuff out.

Talked about this with a friend in Saturday’s round. Since I don’t currently bag a hybrid and really only use 13 clubs I’ve considered

A. Putting a hybrid in the spot that I could chip with.

B. Putting a chipper in.

C. Putting in a dedicated big soaked sand iron.

Since I have the hybrid already it’s likely to be the first man in.

Ping G410 - turned down to11.25 degrees, neutral setting - Fujikura Motore X R flex

Ping G410 5-9 wood

Wilson D7 forged 6-GW -  Mamiya recoil 460 R flex

SCOR 52,60

EVNRoll ER 5

Titleist Pro VIx optic yellow with revkev stamped on them

Currently testing Edison wedges to replace SCORS that are wearing out. Also auditions for the 14th spot in the bag.  Current possibilities are a Ping 26 degree hybrid - duplicates the 9 wood or 5 iron but would be used almost exclusively for chipping or Tour Exotics 3 wood simply because you can carry 14 clubs and I might occasionally hit it in certain unusual wind conditions once every four or five rounds.
