A students bag......

Excuse the mess in the store room, but anyway this is the bargain hunters edition of a student bag





After not playing for four years and being pretty skint I decided to try and put together a solid bag for a good price, theres definitely under $1000 in it





The drivers are going to enter a little head to head tomorrow to find out which one I like better, however I feel like I'm going to need to add a decent amount of lead tape to the Nike in order to get the SW up. Dropped the length to 44.5 and its made it a little light for my liking





Driver one - Tour issued Silverback Burner TP 2008 model, 10* head with 1.2* open face and fitted with a BiMatrix 80 X cut to 45.25"........swingweight unknown but its heavy image/biggrin.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':D' /> just how I like it, Lamkin Crossline cord on this with two wraps



Driver two - Hot melted Nike VR Pro Ltd 9.5* head and 1* open face, I was going to put the same shaft in it but due to being a rather broke student I used up an Aldila 95X I'd been given a few years back. No idea how it'll perform and the SW feels a little light but it was built cheap! I'm testing a new grip on this too, bought an MCC +4 to try, its got a reduced taper to try and make you grip the bottom half lighter........in theory it should make you more relaxed so you swing faster



3 Wood - TM Burner 2008 T3 with the good old fashioned X100 and a Crossline cord



Irons - 2 and 3 iron are MP37's with X100's (some of my old set) and then the 4-PW are MP68's again with X100's. All clubs play to standard length and loft working with a 47* PW



Wedges - Scratch 53 and 60 with S300 shafts, these will be replaced with S400s when I can afford some, don't like the weight of the S300, bit light for me



Putter - Byron Morgan 006 with a sight line and red paint fill







As photobucket has ruined everything heres the pics again



Seems I had a lot of driver pics on photobucket......but not too many of anything else, will change that at some point



This is also no longer a broke students bag but a broke design engineers bag, graduated and I'm now working! All money will be spent on car parts though instead of golf, just bought a set of 2.5" remote res King Shock Coilovers, for those in the know......you know their pricing!

    I'm not specially a smooth hitter. But should I play your clubs would lead me to the hospital after two holes...

    haha I'm very much a hitter not a swinger and this is definitely a hitters bag! Mid to slow back swing and then full speed from there, the heavy weight of the shafts helps me as the long clubs feel more controllable like the irons that way



    That BiMatrix is extremely smooth for an 80X though as is the 3W shaft, might pull it and tip it another half inch as the ball flight is a tad high for my liking image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

    Well it turns out what I've done with the Nike driver is build a terrible club image/sad.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':(' />



    Its long, it sounds great, it feels good but dammit its a pile of crap image/sad.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':(' /> that grip is horrendous! Love the extra width on the bottom hand but I hit so many snap hooks with it it isn't even funny......the grip just gets so slippy after a couple of shots. Nothing like the Lamkin I've got on the TM



    That said the Nike head feels better than the TM, looks better behind the ball, sounds better and has a similar ball flight. Going to test it in the morning when its a bit colder and see how I get on, may even wear a glove and bring a towel just to try and give it a fair test, really want to like this combo.

    Yeah its definitely one of the best Nike drivers I've hit, my search for another SQ 460 tour is off! Don't need one anymore, just need to use this head and sort out either a shaft or a new grip.



    Don't think its the Aldila as I shouldn't be generating enough power to snap hook a 95 X yet be able to hit the 80 X perfectly straight. Further testing tomorrow! Need to choose a driver for next week as I'm playing links in Scotland and don't want to be losing too many balls into the sea



    Thanks image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' /> I hunted for a while and then that one popped up at the right price so I pounced same goes for the Scratch wedges and Mizunos. Loved Scratch wedges since I started playing them, they'd out spin my expensive Japanese one and a Vokey had nothing on it

    I have set of Mizuno irons and scratch wedges as well. My wedges are great. I starting to lose some spin around the green but these are dangerous from 130 and in, my 58 DS is my best bunker wedge ever. f

    I'll find out what I shoot next week! Not played in four years so it could be interesting.......would guess in the mid 80s course I used to be at was a par 70 but the one I'm starting to play at now is a 71. It is links though which suits my bomb and gouge style better than tight woodland

    Interested in the Byron. How do you like it?
  • NuggetsNuggets I'm not the messiah! Members Posts: 1,270
    Excellent putters, I've had at least five of them over the years. Buy them cheap on here and always make my money back when I sell them again it the UK! Last one actually went to Thailand.......if I could get it back I would image/sad.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':(' />



    Oil can carbon 006 with a slot, no line/dot cavity stamped Byron and that was it. Loved that putter



    This ones almost as good but it wont rust which is a major plus, stainless just doesn't feel quite as nice to me as carbon. However the best Byrons to buy are the pure copper ones if you can ever lay your hands on them! I had a brief fling with a pure copper Mini Surfer Girl and it was the best feeling putter I'd ever used

    I'm just like you. I love to play bomb and gouge; I shoot 75-77 when I'm on, but put on a course where I have to play target golf, I struggle; like mid to high 80s (I will have 14 good hole and 4 bad ones). But when I play links or park course I able to rip driver and hit my Scratch wedges into greens and make some putts.

    Bomb and gouge is just more fun, I will take a 2 iron off the tee if I have to.......but if I can see its a 3 wood onto a green or a par 5 that can be done in two shots then I always take driver.......I either then try and hit too short an iron and pull it trying to hit it hard and high or hit it to the wrong part of the green from miles out instead of laying up and pitching close



    Wide links fairways, non existent light/mid rough and fast greens suit me image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' /> don't like the rough on woodland courses where once you're in you have to navigate 50 different trees to get back to the fairway or have no shot over unless you're in the fairway



    I'm going back to the range tomorrow for a practice, going to bring a towel and keep the Nike grip dry to see if it helps me out. Stupid GP grip.....the lady running it didn't notice me losing at least 25 balls over the back wall when it was dry though! Thank goodness for that haha



    250 yard uphill range, think the back wall is elevated about 15m up from the tees or it is anyway according to google maps sea level variation between points and 70% balls I think so I'm happy with the distances I'm getting just not the consistency with the Nike at the minute. If it wants to find itself in the bag next week its going to have to behave tomorrow

    Wish I'd known how much worse than the standard MCC they were! Wouldn't have wasted £5 ($8) on it and just fitted a GP full cord Tour Velvet or a Lamkin Crossline (got a spare one incase I hated this).....

    This bag is sweet. I'd game it but the Bi Matrix 80X might throw out my back!!

    Thanks although I'd think you might struggle more with the 95X Aldila NV! image/wink.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=';)' />







    I'm currently rather tempted to boot the 2 iron out in favour of a 2 hybrid......I'd lose the cool factor but pick up 10-15 yards! Only issue I have is I prefer to hit a 2 iron off the deck to a hybrid......



    Tough call at the minute!

    What 2 hybrid




    Rescue Dual TP in 16* as I cant find a 14 anywhere!



    I've used them before and found them to be the only ones I can hit

    Nice bag and once again it proves that you dont need to spend a million quid on a really solid bag image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

    Thanks image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' /> I think this is about the rough cost in £'s and $'s, add £45 if I get the hybrid





    £60 - Driver/3W head

    £70 - BiMatrix

    £115 - MP68s + 37s

    £40 - X100 shafts for 2/3/3W

    £240 - Putter

    £75 - Wedges

    £100 - Bag

    £105 - Shoes

    £45 - Nike VR head

    £0 - Aldila shaft

    £35 - Grips





    There's actually £895 ($1400) in the bag in total (rounding to the nearest £5 when counting)



    That said I needed new shoes as I had none and the bag is actually from five years ago and grips are consumables in reality! So removing them we get to



    $1025 or £655, I was close on my guess of $1000 image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />



    Never fun to add up what you've spent though, golf is definitely a more expensive game over here! Shafts just aren't readily available over here in X or the weight I like image/sad.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':(' />
