My question is: how much difference does it make to go from one setting to the next if there are 32 intervals? Does the club face point backwards at some point?

Have we all agreed on anything (other than you post a lot and Jamo agrees with everything you and I say)?

Good video. Didn't completely answer my question, but I did like that they echoed my point about adjustability giving the club a longer life in your bag ;)

 

I'm also not ashamed to admit that I like Nike a little bit (ok, a lot) more now that they've got Amanda Blumenhurst on staff. Go Duke!

Have you tried to adjust one of these Nikes??? it is so hard to find the exact setting that you are looking for. 32 is 31 to many in my book. at least 24 to many...

 

Agreed. The actual act of changing the settings is a piece of cake. Nike didn't an outstanding job with the wrench and adjustable hosel. Unfortunately, the markings are not intuitive (or I'm just dense) and I can't remember what is what without carrying around the reference card with me. And even then it's a bit of rocket science.

I brought my adjustable R9 out today for the first round and I will admit, after a bad shot, I wanted to mess with it. Ultimately, I didn't because I know the settings are good for me (and because I had great results with that 1 exception). It made me appreciate some people's hesitance to go adjustable, that urge to meddle could be overwhelming to some.

I hope they really use those when they fit someone.

I promise to use these next time I fit anyone..

A2g: are you stl happy that you didn't buy the glued version?

 

Yes, I got a great deal on the Srt8-Fit and my buddy and I had a blast messing with the wrench. Besides, the pouch on the headcover where the wrench is stored will make a great place to stash stuff - like extra tees, gloves, and little bottles of Mr. Daniels. :)

You have brought up this innovation in headcover design twice. I need a photo and you need an endorsement.

I didn't know that Nike gives you a place to store the wrench in the HC. I love this idea. I'm always trying to remember, "Where did I leave that damned wrench?" because one day I'll think that I'm never going to use it again and leave it at home, then it's in pocket A, then pocket B.

 

Plus if the wrench is in the HC, I would actually use the OEM HC...maybe.

I wonder why Scotty's don't have divot tool holders anymore?

Probably because those little slots don't hold the tool very securely, and some people pay a lot of money for those tools. I got one when I put a Scotty putter. It's plain, but it works fine. If I lose it, meh, I'll use one of the free plastic tools you can get anywhere.

Good point. I've got one too and I use it but the thing is desinged completely wrong. It encourages you to lift the grass up, when really you want to push it into the middle.
