How much do think you'll spend this year on gear?

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

I can't help myself and am constantly tinkering. I'm going to replace all my grips with midsize versions. I'll either replace my 3W shaft or replace it altogether with a RBZ. I may change out my iron shafts with the Apollo Hump for lower flight. I'm building myself and my son belly putters (even though I literally just built a new putter for Christmas). And who knows what sort of training gear I'll get:

 

Definitely getting:

True Ace Cadence Blue Ultralight for my 3W: $20

Karma White Velvet Jumbo Grips: $2.09 x 12 = $25

Winn DriTac Standard Midsize (for 3W): $6.50

Winn DriTac Wrap Lite Midsize (for driver): $6.30

Set of white ferrules: $4.65

Set of weight tip plugs: $8

 

Belly putter (I already have the head):

Karma 19" Bk/Red Rnd Belly Grip: $8

Apollo 43" Stepless: $5.50

 

Possibly getting:

RBZ Fairway: $229

5-LW Apollo Hump S shafts: $9.75 x 9 = $87.75

 

So in all I'm looking at between $70.45 - $316.75. Probably closer to the $316 figure.

If I promised my wife I would just spend $316 dollars this year on golf clubs she would love it. I have no plans on changing any more equipment for this year. Having said that, I may replace them all.:D I am planning on a trip to Golfsmith's tomorrow. The trip last week got canceled because I forgot to take the stuff I am returning and my buddies called and wanted to play golf. So I am off to hit the Rocketballz. Will not get one tomorrow, not that implulsive, but who knows.

 

I am going to spend a lot of time in Europe the next three years so I may end up getting a completely new set. One for here one for there, but first I have to see where I will keep it over there. I may get an apartment, but first it is hotels and rental cars. Plus the weather right now is not worth taking clubs.

$316 is probably the starting point knowing me. Trust me if I didn't have mortgage payments it would probably be even higher!

 

Before the season has even started I have bought a driver, hybrid and two putters. Who knows where this years bill will end up, but I will be coming out ahead without having to pay club dues this year.

This year I know I'm replacing the driver, 3W, and hybrid from last year's bag. What the new clubs will be, I have no idea, so I have no budget. The putter is also a question mark, waiting to see Bruce before any decisions get made on that front. It could be a very expensive season...but at least the irons and wedges are set...unless I need a new 60....it never ends.

I have practically replaced all my clubs since "last season". I replaced my driver shaft today. And a hybrid shaft last week. I have almost as many club changes on the signature portion of this sight as I do posts. When I joined here in December I was playing Callaway TA Prototype Irons. I loved them but thought the Titleist ZB's looked really cool. I hit a couple of balls and fell in love. Last week, I hit some Titleist CB's and fell in love again. But other than swing weight the ZB's are the same. Plus I like the ZB short irons. I may replace this shaft in a few weeks if I fall out of love with it.

 

 

New driver shaft, new hybrid shaft, different irons, and a new putter. Other than that not much has changed from last year. Oh yeah a new wedge.

 

I told my wife when we met that I work just enough to support my golf habit. I have a monthly budget for getting new shinny things for my golf bag. Like I said in another post. I go to the golf store once a month just to fondle the merchandise. I am a clubophile.

Well, I bought a new pair of shoes today on clearance for $50. My wife is getting me a TM ghost spider for my bday. So that just leaves a new RBZ 3w, a 7.5* 9032 LD that I'm buying from my cousin, the rest of the FST Pro 125's for my irons, the orange Lamkin or Karma grips for those irons, and a new shaft for the 9032.

Don't make me guess please. I replaced irons 3 times, had 13 drivers, 1 already this season, had 7 different fairways, 4 hybrids and I quit counting putters. 3 bags too. Not counting the 4 pair of shoes.

 

Thus far:

Tour Issue TMag Superfast 2.0 v2 driver

Aldila Protopype for the RBZ 4 wood in gonna build

 

I'm already at $400 give or take in those two items.

So far over the winter I've gotten 2 sets of grips, 2 sets of irons, 2 putters, a pair of shoes and a new shaft for my hybrid. I may also end up with a new hybrid, but I promised myself I wouldn't buy one until I at least hit the one I have now with the new shaft.

 

That being said I still need to get my club membership, I really want a Bag Boy Revolver bag, and I'm buying a golf cart this year :)

I'll be getting a new set of irons + 52* and 58* wedges (going back to 3 wedge set up instead of 4)

Drivers, putter and hybrid I just changed last season, so they are staying for a while.

I got new shoes by the end of last season (haven't worn them yet).

 

But with all the hype about the RBZ 3W, I think I might have to grab one!

 

So how much is it going to be? $1300 give or take?

 

I was finally able to leave 1 set at my parents and 1 set at my in-laws, that way I don't have to fly with clubs anymore. And this new set will be my gamer in Germany!

i might get the RBZ fairway depending on how it goes will not buy it if the increase is not >17yards.

tempted to get RBZ tour driver also but knowing TM launching a new model every two minutes there might be a RPGM203TOMAHAWKBZ in july so ill wait out a lil more before goin to the TM laboratory in melbourne

 

that being said i still havent tried the new clubs this year so i duno hw the new clubs are gonna work for me. I kept telling myself i wont be replacing my irons till Ping comes up with the i25 or i30 but with all the hype i duno hw long i can hold out for.

 

Even if i dont replace the irons i am looking to test out the KBS to see if i can lower the ball flight a lil. i might also get my vicino reshafted to be a belly.

 

jeez my girlfriend isnt gna be too happy if she sees this post, shes already complaining that i told her i'd rather have RBZ than wutever she was planning to get me for our anniversary next month lol

 

and also with my current fixation with the nike free run+ i might get the nike frees that tigers been wearing.

the missus is right, the spending never ends

I pulled the same thing, but I did it early. That way my wife has time to accept that I may replace the 3W I got just last year!

R11 Head + Attas Elements

F12 Head + VTS

Plus a hybrid or 2 that I haven't decided upon yet. The more hybrids become like fairways, the more I'm starting to not like them. Maybe an i20 or I'll go find some of the old VR heads and have them shafted up with VTS's as well.

 

Plus if I could ever find a pair of shoes that fit they would be on the list as well. I hate golf shoes at this point and just want someone to stick spikes on my runners.

I might not spend much beyond a couple pairs of shoes, balls etc. Or I might get crazy and get the new set of irons I've been looking for for two seasons! You never know. So anywhere between $300-$1000 or so!
