Shankster’s Build a Bag


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

@Shankster, AS many wise men have said. "Get fit and make a decision based upon those results, if you limit yourself to 1 brand or club, you might be leaving something on the table".. Or something close. LOL.

We all need to hear that advice, it is mentioned here so much by so many.. Not positive but You yourself might have said it before.. Hmmm.. 

or say screw it and get what gonna make you happy, Wife gave you the green light, have fun with it. Better to ask for forgiveness than permission, and hell you have permission.. 

Last time the wife told me that for clubs I spent $1200 on new Ping G25 irons.. last time she said that is the key part.. LOL

Yea sir.  I plan on trying a few things, but not matter what I’ll be getting a players iron, because I cannot do huge clubs.  I know what to expect from the miss with them… I’m going to try different brands, but I’ve already determined that I can’t do Callaway or PXG.  Not to say their clubs aren’t good, I just don’t like the persona of those two brands… if that makes sense.

100%, I Have never hit a Callaway club I liked. HATED the original Callaway balls that hex pattern, Could not hit it to save my life, I'm sure some of that was mental but just not a brand that has much to Offer ME.. not to say they do not work well for others, but for me not so much.. For me I have had the most success with Ping and Cobra.. they just work for me..

Has anyone used the Mizuno shaft optimizer?  Is it legit?

I have and it was good for me. At the very least it narrows the field and saves a lot of time. One of my top 3 matches felt awful, fitter told me that shaft was either love or hate.
Next 2 were very close, consistency won the day. Interestingly, the 2 options were PX LZ 5.5 (probably firmish regular) and Nippon NS Pro Modus 105 in XS. Weight of these 2 is almost identical. I’m very happy with the LZ 5.5’s

It’s a great fitting tool for a big box or small shop, but not something a season fitter at a high end fitting place typically uses

My fitter used it for me. I don’t know any different but I seemed to be into shafts that I was liking pretty quick.

Pretty good mix if you ask me. No law says you have to carry 14 clubs. With 13 as SOP it leaves a couple of options to switch out for different courses you play. For a while I had only been carrying 12 with options to switch out. Now recently I added my 60* back in and my 4 iron so now I am back up to 14 but I can rotate several as the need arises.

Alright ladies and gentlemen, I have been mulling this over since my fitting last week.  The bag will be different than what I thought, only because I am looking at the spin rates I was getting with the 620CB vs the T100S.  Using the V1x last round out I saw a significant jump, and ballooning with using a higher spinning ball.  With the CB vs the T100, there wasn’t a ballon, the trajectory was nearly the same but it was a few yards shorter.

So I am going with:

Driver: Rogue ST Triple Diamond

2H: PING G425

DI: TM UDI 2° Flat

Irons: 3-PW 620CB (Project X LZ 6.5) 2° Flat

Vokey: 52°, 56°, 60° (project X LZ 6.5) 2° Flat

 

I will probably regret it, but i much preferred  the CB off the face.

The CBs are nice;  I liked them better than the T100 line as well.
