Seeing as just about everything including the bag itself has changed since I first posted, I figure its a good time to do a complete overhaul of the WITB. So here's the set-up as of September 2017:

    Thanks! Feel like the bag is starting to come together.



    Just got caught up in other sports is the biggest reason looking back on it. Disappointed I gave it up completely for that long. One of those sports was actually lacrosse - I played at NDNU, so I'm sure we crossed paths at some point. Small world.



    I know Tyler and Tim from Crystal Springs. Still need to make it out there for a round one of these days like they keep telling me.

    I am. Love the performance of the E-3, just got some fitting mods done by the good folks down in Texas and now it's out for some customization. Excited to get it back in the bag.

    Nice bag. Got my eyes on the Alpha 816 fairway myself. So cheap in the UK now. I am thinking of getting the 5 wood and turning it down to 17.



    I see you dialled the shaft in, so I will go for a shaft fitting on it myself before pulling the trigger.

    Do it! The club is a cannon. Have also done some more on-course testing since bagging it and have swapped the position on the weights around. Not sure if its a real physics of the club driven difference, or just a psyche one, but I'm finding it easier to get the ball airborne.

    Some fun stuff being added after rummaging around in the attic when pulling stuff down for the holidays...



    Granddad's old Sunday bag with some fun items. Not entirely sure what a lot of these clubs are and the internet searches didn't turn up a whole lot. If anyone knows anything about these clubs I'd love a bit of background and history.

    Putter Update!



    My Edel E-3 is finally back in the bag after a couple trips down to Texas. First one was to Edel HQ where they installed a new counter-balanced shaft and new sole weight as well as adjusting lie after a tune-up fitting by the Edel master fitter in SF. Second trip was to Labworx where the putter was resurfaced, finished in their Matte Raw, paint-filled in gold and got the "KING" stamping done to match my wedges. Couldn't be happier with how it came out. New grip to be installed shortly is a BestGrips (also TX) Rancher in saddle brown.

    Few changes to the bag in the last couple months, so here's a couple shots of the bigger changes:

    Bag is looking solid my man!



    Love the Seamus. I have been rocking my RMG's all year but may have to snag a few Seamus this offseason.



    Everything looks dope!

    Appreciate it; I've got you to thank for some of it! I'm really excited to finally have everything come together. But now I don't know what to do with myself when I go on BST and don't "need" anything.



    The Seamus stuff is top notch and Akbar, family and the rest of the team in Portland cranking out gear are the nicest people to meet and work with. Highly recommend. My balmark, pitch tool and scorecard holder are all by them as well.

    Just after posting that I felt the bag was set for a while, I ho'ed a new shaft for my driver...



    Picked this up from an awesome member here. It's a one-off Oban Kiyoshi Tour Limited 70/05 that's been tipped an inch and now plays at 44.25" in my XR16 SubZero with a 12g counterweight.

    Couple minor updates heading into the winter months where things will slow down a little bit in terms of getting out and playing on the actual course, but lots of simulator time trying to work on things and do a bit of tinkering.



    First up, modifications made to the 4 iron:





    [sharedmedia=core:attachments:4202138]



    [sharedmedia=core:attachments:4202136]



    [sharedmedia=core:attachments:4202134]



    I'm still loving the Edel CB's with the KBS C-Tapers, but in my longer irons I struggle to get some of the height I need out of them to hold greens even with adequate spin on long par 3's in the 210-215 yard range. There are a couple of those holes on courses I play that are also forced carry which makes it prohibitive to just punch something low and run it up to the green which let me to looking into an alternative shaft option for my 4 iron. The result is what you see above. New shaft is a KBS Hybrid Prototype 95X shaft playing at 39" in a 23* iron - hardly dedicated driving iron set-up as I can launch and spin this thing at will and should be able to play it from the fairway without issue. Will be aiming to get it out on the course this weekend, but initial testing is promising. I can easily float one out at around 205 carry that stops quick, or step on one and sling it out with a more penetrating draw as an option off the tee. Tee shot numbers from the LM: 98mph club speed, 136mph ball speed, 11 degrees launch, 3580 rpm backspin, carrying 216 and rolling out to 238 yards. Definitely a fun club I'm excited to get out and do some more testing with.



    As sort of a progress report being a year and a half into the game now, here's what the swing looked like with the old 4 iron set-up that I got as a baseline:

    Beautiful set. Those irons are one of the coolest I've seen, did you refinish it yourself?



    I'm considering getting a single/variable length combo set. I know the topline on the SL is huge, but was there a difference in the size of head lengthwise?

    Thanks, sorry for just now seeing this. I did the finish myself, and its an easy touch-up every dozen rounds or so so keep them looking fresh.



    Let me see about getting some comparison pics of the SL next to the Variable length. Where would you be transitioning the set you think - as in SL to what iron?
