    Will do. I’m a digger with a steep angle of attack. If I really get after a wedge, I can make some fine beaver pelts! Hopefully, this will prevent that and also allow me to get aggressive out of greenside bunkers.
    My initial shots indoors were promising. Felt good and it was chewing up an Oncore Elixir ball. These must have some fairly aggressive grooves. I also hit some short pitches out of my overgrown lawn (didn’t get to mow this week due to rain) and it slid through the thick wet grass without grabbing. One thing of note was the length. I must have missed it but it feels like it is 35”.

    Well, well, well... I think I found out why it felt so short:



    The **** club is 34.5" (maybe 34.625")! I'm measuring at a 60* angle per USGA. What the heck, TaylorMade?!? I've also included a photo next to a brand new Cleveland CBX for reference, measuring a correct 35.5".

    Yesterday on eBay I came across what looked like a little beat up Superfast TP 2.0 driver with an Axivcore Tour Red X shaft (a shaft that I've used and liked), and won the auction for what seemed a reasonable price ($56 posted).

    This morning I arrived at work to see it had been delivered, and, upon further inspection and some Googling, found a T serial in a format that indicates it's a rare LCG head.

    Very excited to give it a run this weekend and see how it fares.

    Feels great on putting mat. Weight is very balanced, comes off face firm feeling like I like, although not clicky. Actually buttery feeling. > @craz-e said:

    A prime reason is because their grips are too heavy and throw the swingweight off. If you switch to a lighter grip, that'll help you feel the head a lot more.

    seriously, how did you do that ? Do you have a whole "sheet" of lead tape ? how do you have it so clean ?

    It's impossible to know exactly from a computer but with 370g head + tape in a 35" shaft, I would think you've tilted the swing weight the opposite direction and really, really like to feel the head.
    I agree with the other post, it's crazy how clean you got it to look with lead tape. That took some time.

    5-PW PXG 0211 with Mitsubishi MMT 80 stiff shafts.

    Went in for the free PXG 30 minute Club Champion fitting and was hitting these beautifully. Went home empty handed, searched “PXG” on Craigslist and found the exact set, locally. Even better, the price was $550! I figured that I’d end up buying something before next season but this was too good to pass up. So excited.

    That price is crazy low. Nice work.

    @bunta yes a wide sheet of lead and quite tedious work to get it done


    Swing weight E5. Green speed usually max out at 10.
    Might wanna change to smaller grip. Maybe SuperStroke Pistol GTR 1.0 and switch to stability shaft. Still waiting for the tour “slimmer” version.
