My bag o' sticks (some old school, some new)

Altiman94Altiman94 Members Posts: 1,010 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
I have been through a few sets of clubs over the last 2 years trying to find my niche. Seems like I've settled in.



I have the original '2 deep' and my version of the Phrankenwood. Also have me a sweet driving iron.



IRONS: PING EYE 2 1-LW red dot. I play 1, 3-L

PUTTER: 33.5" PING ANSER 2, SuperStroke 3.0 grip

2 wood: Callaway Big Bertha 'the deuce', ProForce Gold 65 S-Flex, plays at 43.5"

DRIVER: TItleist 975J, 8.5*, ProForce Gold 75 S-Flex, plays at 44.5"

About a 3.5 HC. Played competitively through high school (2000-2004). Mostly gave up golf during college and picked it up seriously again about 3 years ago. Though I kid about the phrankenwood and 2 deep....I do have a R1 & RBZ stage 2. For some reason I play the older equipment just as good as the new (imagine that!!).

    Nice! I have the 975J-VS I take out to the range when I'm swinging poorly. When I can hit that monster well, the gamer driver gets much better! Love the full set of pingers too!

    If hit well, the J is no shorter than my R1 playing at the same length. I can definitely tell on mis-hits but I am able to draw the smaller headed J much better than the R1. My alma mater's colors are purple/yellow so the proforce shafts goes with that theme as well.

    Wish I still had those Eye 2's and 975J. Each is my favorite in their respective categories. Solid bag!

    Nice sticks. I love to see people still playing the Eye 2's I have a set I still take out once or twice a year and I have a 1 iron I take the range when I want to be humbled a little bit.

    I should have tossed them in my old hoofer 2 (which I actually like better than my hoofer c-1). Thanks for the comments guys. I do think the 2wood is shorter than my 4wood RBZ stage 2 but it's less squirrelly most of the time as well.

    I picked up a Scotty Cameron Newport Beach (33.5") from a forum member and have been rolling it the last 3 rounds. Was hard to get used to at first not saving a sight line but I'm really liking it now. Seems to be similar to the 'inspired by Davis Love III' Scotty.

    When everybody come up with their new SLDR/BBA, it's so refreshing to see your WITB. Really nice and classy collection there.

    I have a soft spot for a set of red dot Eye 2s as that is what my father played when I was young. Nice set!

    I was in highschool around the same time as you, and your bag reminds me very much of my old high school bag. Had the Proforce in my woods and had blue dot ISI's instead of the eye 2's. I love your bag man, good collection of stuff that works and thats all that matters. I went from the Ping isi-tec driver to the J with the proforce. Man makes me want to track down a 975J again for sure.

    Testing out a set of 3-P Titleist 962B's I picked up on ebay for a song. I really like the feel of these but the longer irons are a tad more difficult to hit than my Eye 2's. Have 2 range sessions and 1 round in with them so far. Trying them out again this weekend as well.
  • Altiman94Altiman94 Members Posts: 1,010 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    Ended up making a few changes over the summer (whole bag over haul I guess).



    Irons are now 962B with S300 shafts

    Wedges are SM5 in 54 and 58 degree

    Putter is 34" See-more FGP w/ Superstroke 2.0 Ryder Cup grip

    G25 20* hybrid as my 3i

    Callaway 2deep as my driver

    G20 4W just picked up used - still testing



    My first 18 hole round with the 2 deep ended in 9/9 on fairways hit and it was no shorter than my driver had been. It's been hit and miss since but my mis-hits are generally not as far offline. I do lose more distance on poor hits with it than I do with a driver.



    Just picked up the G20 4w used. Hit it a couple times on the range. Trying to fill the gap between the hybrid and 2 deep - though I generally don't hit a fairway wood off the deck all that often.



    I love the irons - always wanted a set of these when they first came out. Paid $125 shipped from eBay and they have great grooves on them. I have been thinking about a set of AP2's - I'm sold on Titleist irons for now.

    962B`s nice!!!!! I had a set of those along time ago and I loved em.I think Titleist needs to bring back the DCI name and blend some new school with the old school, I think it would be cool. Nice setups !!
  • BIG STUBIG STU Members Posts: 11,698 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭
    That Pro Force 65 Gold is one heck of a shaft. I game one in my old Cally Steel Head 3 wood and in my TM V Steel 7 wood. I also have one in my backup driver which is a Wishon 949MC. They dont make that shaft anymore so I do find them in old clubs at yard sales and thrift shops. I will buy them pull the shafts and hoard them

    Love the picture of that Warbird. That's pretty sweet. I used to hit my Warbird 3-Wood longer than any driver I had.

    Would probably still have it if I didn't cave the face it. Loved the small heads on clubs back then!
  • Altiman94Altiman94 Members Posts: 1,010 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    I still have the warbird and 975J. There may be a point coming very soon where both of them are back into commission.

    I love the feel of them. Only irons I would replace them with would be AP2's or the 712 CB's.

    I love to see players playing the tools that work. I can't help but give a small smile on the range when I see a player hitting bombs and throwing darts with 'out of date' equipment as the player next to him slices and skulls the best technology has to offer. At the end of the day, play what keeps your scores low...

    Heck do the mixed bag thing use the Ping long irons and the Titleist short irons. I did stuff like that for years still do to some point all 4 of my wedges are different brands and I am carrying 3 different brands of metal woods only my 4I thru PW are the same which is saying a lot for me

    Even better option would be to combo the 962 irons with the 962b set, using 962 for longer irons where difficulty arises.

    Ping eye 2, best club ever made for me. Used them from 1990 til only recently and I think I might be going back to them....keep using them as they are brilliant irons
  • Altiman94Altiman94 Members Posts: 1,010 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    I've never had problems hitting long irons - so a combo set isn't needed for me. I hit my 3,4,5 irons as good as any in my set.
  • scruffynickscruffynick manchester, UKMembers Posts: 1,572 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    Ping eye 2 red spot are back in the bag......felt great and its like I've had a row with Mrs and got back together and everything is lovely again!!
  • Altiman94Altiman94 Members Posts: 1,010 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    I sold the EYE 2's locally - was going to give them to my dad but ended up getting an offer. I prefer the 962's to them as I can flight them lower better. I can still hit them high if needed but its more of a mid ball flight. I'm a pretty decent long iron player so I've not missed the forgiveness too awful much until you get into the 3iron. I still have the 975J and Deuce but in the bag are currently the RBZ stuff listed in my signature. I did keep the 1i around for those days that I feel like hitting it.
