Trouble with the wife


Recommended Posts

So the new golfsmith store opened in Pineville NC, which is aboy 10 minutes away.

Went tOthe grand opening today and the first thing in your face when you walk in the door

Is R11s, for 149.

 

I am going to be in big trouble when she gets home.

 

Does anyone want the stock shaft for the r11s, and the stock shaft for the R11. I should put that in the classifieds.

I forgot to mention that my only instructions before she left for work was "do no buy anything". Oh well,

 

They are supposed to have Nike out there all weekend to do the distance challenge.

 

I took my r11 with the new bimatrix shaft in with me to compare a few, I liked the Callaway extreme fit, hated the X Hot , R1 was alrighth as well as stage 2, Adams stunk,

 

I was hitting my R11 very well, the wind setting was at zero. I remember reading here to make sure to check that, so you don't get false readings. I was averaging around 290, with the longest being 336, I had several over the 300 mark, but I also had some not so good ones, but was still getting 275 to 280, it was great fun,.

 

I didn't mess with the settings on the R1 or stage 2, so I think those numbers could have been a little better, extreme fit felt solid of the face, I also didn't mess with the settings to adjust the ball flight. I will get back soon to really do some tweaking around and see if the new stuff can do much more than I already have. That should be fun, they are just sooooo busy right now, it's hard to get in to the hitting area, and really get time with one of the guys to help with reading the numbers, and get a good idea of what I am actually doing.

 

I see now why spending the extra money to truly get fit could really help, with all of the settings and shafts available, one could get lost trying to find the right one.

If you noticed in my 'Driver Fitting Experience' thread, it was a couple months from the time that I created the thread and actually buying the driver.................that was waiting on clearance from the wife. Good luck.

 

Buy now, pay later (that day)

 

My fiends always say, asking for forgiveness is easier than asking for permission. ( they are all single)

I have a 9 year old son who saw the club, it was all over then. My punishment wasn't too severe, I had to take my daughter and her 2 friends shopping, well, maybe it was severe now that I think about it.

I've lived by this credo since I was a child(I got a lot of whacks)

 

I also, am still single;-p

 

FWIW, Ida done the same thing.

 

Cept maybe left with a putter also. Ida told her that the $149 price tag was contingent on buying the Method 001 :-)

 

Have a great season

I would have followed Rookie's advice. :)

 

I actually am allowed mad money from my skins winnings in league and friday game each summer - I usually have in the pot to jump on something like this - the mad money gets replunished by wedding honorariums - it's a nice arrangement. Lets me keep my clubs regripped/reshafted, purchase something occasionally that's on sale, purchase accesories - fortunately I don't need much in that department because I bought a nice new bag last year, have a dozen and a half balls left over from winning the contest, have a new pair of shoes plus a one year old pair and all those clubs to play around with - along with the possibility of pulling those shafts and putting year old shafts in elsewhere.

 

Good thing - there will be no new purchases with my wife out of work. :(

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.
