    I'm hoping so. Just got home from So Cal and the post office has it! I won't have it in hand until tomorrow afternoon. Pulling the shaft tomorrow and will post some pics. image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

    Today I played 18. My son had a tournament this morning so I watched him all morning and got the bug to play. I am in the middle of a swing change and played decently. Shot 75 on a course that is 75/138 @ 7200 approx. Shot even par on the front. The RSi irons are pretty legit especially with the Modus 125x. I hit some shots that didn't feel too good swing wise but ended up pretty **** decent. I clanked a 189 yard 6 iron on the last hole that ended up 5 feet. 163 yard 7 iron floater into a gusty headwind that held its line beautifully to 5 feet. Shots that I know would have not turned out as good with the Vapor Pros. Also got to finally test my Engage 51, 55 square. I am in love with these wedges. I have to get the distance dialed in as I am not used to the extra spin. Seems like the added bounce hasn't effected play ability at all which was one of my concerns weakening the loft. Lastly the 915hd performed extremely well. Almost double eagled a par 5. Had 237 to the flag and hit the pin on a roll. I can't believe it didn't go in! Also had 227 uphill into a slight headwind didn't make great contact but the ball held its line well and I had 20 feet for birdie. When looking for the right clubs for me I always pay attention more to how good are my bad swings with the club. I think I like what I see with the 915hd and the RSi's at this point. Hit some great shots off the tee with the 915hd as well. Solid club. I could honestly go either way between this and the Cally right now. Going to keep it in the bag for now.




    I just switched my Nike VPCs out for Ping S55s. Like you, the results of my bad swings are what swayed me. Congrats on all the new sticks. That M10 looks sick!!!




    I put the RSi in play yesterday and besides the head flying off they performed incredible. Hit a couple more shots that after I was surprised were on point!



    Waiting on them to hand polish it to turn it a little more gray. Thanks




    That stinks about the head but on the bright side it looks like an easy fix. The hand polish would look sick!

    Yes. It's basically an updated VR LTD which is exactly what I wanted. Only thing is the original shaft has a plug in it. And so it's going to take some work to reshaft properly so epoxy doesn't get all inside the head.

    Just take the top plug from a bic pen. Works perfectly when you don't have any hosel plugs available.

    Didn't even think of that! Haven't finished reshafting yet because there is something rattling after pulling the stock shaft

    Even though still having a few lingering effects from a recent neck injury, I was fortunate enough to try out a similar 15* club to the one you are currently assembling. The one I tested had a VTS spx black 8x installed and preliminary results are promising enough to make my tour issue 906f2 a bit nervous about retaining starting position in line-up.

    I hope so! Sorry to hear about your neck. Hopefully it heals well and you are back on the course. 3 woods are special to me. It looks beautiful. Very similar to what I had so just a technology upgrade seems like a perfect fit.

    Nope that why the factory shaft had a plug. You can get around it though. Just takes some additional work. Nothing major.

    Just the R15 driver and g30. The Vapor speed should be finished reshafting today and I pick it up tomorrow. But I have a match tomorrow morning so he let me snag some sticks. I briefly hit his r15 on the range. Pretty impressed. See what happens on the course.
