Hi everyone



Just an updated WITB for you all;



Driver

Cobra F8+ Aldila Rogue Silver

Currently set to 8.5* as this thing seems to launch quite high! Shaft is very different to my Veylix Rome 688, but I think the heavier feel suits my swing, I am more of a feel golfer



Fairway

Callaway Rogue Sub Zero Project X HZRDUS (13.5 degrees)

What a rocket ship this thing is! Great head and shaft combo for anyone thinking of trying it!



Driving Iron

Callaway Apex UT UST Mamiya Recoil ES (18 degrees)

Another brilliant club from Callaway, really enjoying this one at the moment. Always been a driving iron type of guy, never got on with hybrids



Irons

Srixon Z565 DG S300 4-6 iron

Srixon Z765 DG S300 7-PW

I can't see these changing for a while, not unless Srixon have done something crazy good to the new ones coming



Wedges

Cobra King Pur

Owned these for a while now, still like them but have been thinking about changing



Putter

Taylormade Spider Tour Red

Can see why Taylormade have sold so many of these. Great roll, great look, great weight, great everything really!

    Some changes to the bag;

    Now rocking a 2017 M2, kept the same shaft for the moment.

    Also changed the Tour Edge out, and got my hands on a filthy long XR pro 14 degree. It's a tank of a three wood, goes for miles!

    Also sorted out the golf shoes for winter, got a great deal on buying two pairs

    So, all has changed!



    After some careful deliberation, the irons have gone! Yep the Cobras has left my bad



    Big decision to make, but I just felt I needed more forgiveness



    Thus started a big testing month, which put me down to the new Titleist AP2 and the Srixon Z765



    I ended up going with a Srixon combo set, with Z565 and Z765



    Easily the best decision I have made in my bag, these are the real deal, and I have a lot of people on here to thank for that!



    I also ordered the Srixon driving iron, which has replaced the Taylormade UDI



    Putter is also out, and I put my old Palombi back in

    Like that palombi George does some great putters.



    What other putters do you have tucked away? Im liking what i see...
  • robleighlefty89robleighlefty89 Members Posts: 121 ✭✭
    Great WITB, couple of qu's from a fellow lefty!



    How do you find the Srixon 3 iron compares to the UDI? Just upgraded to Srixon Irons but resisted the temptation to get a ZU65, tempting though!

    And also the difference between the 2016 M1 vs 2017 M2?



    AND I want your Palombi putter!

    Thanks, man!



    I have quite the list at the moment! The latest list is;

    Byron Morgan 006 Mystic Finish

    Byron Morgan 029 X Proto

    Betti Baby Bee Camo

    Palombi

    TP Mills Copper

    LaJosi DD201

    Kenny Giannini G1

    Loads of Xenons! I love Lumpy!



    I am about to try some more mallet style putters though. I picked up a cheap Ping Nome to try out, as blade putters just don't have the technology compared to mallets etc.

    Hey man



    Yeah the UDI was straight out of the bag once the ZU turned up!



    The ZU is easier to get up higher, plus I find it more forgiving as well.



    Not sure if its just me, but I find it goes further too? Even though I have it in a higher loft?



    It could just be the shaft, I was KBS steel shaft in the UDI, whereas in the Srixon I have their stock graphite option and I really like it



    As for the M1 2016 vs M2 2017, for me the 2017 is just slightly more forgiving, but it is just a stock gap for the moment whilst I work on my game. The new Mizuno or Cobra F8 will probably be where I move to next. Not all about distance for me, I prefer feel

    Sorry for the lack of replies guys!



    Had a complete reshuffle in the bag, with only a few survivors!



    It now looks like this;



    Driver- Cobra F8+ Aldila Rogue Silver (8.5 degrees)

    Fairway- Callaway Rogue Sub Zero Project X HZRDUS (13.5 degrees)

    2 Iron- Callaway Apex UT UST Mamiya Recoil ES (18 degrees)

    4-6 Iron- Srixon Z565 DG S300

    7-PW Iron- Srxion Z765 DG S300

    Wedges- Cobra King PUR (52, 56, 60 degrees)

    Putter- Taylormade Spider Tour Red



    Think this bag has me set for quite some time now!



    People should really look at that driver and three wood, they are both unreal!

    How do you find the Hoofer? Stuck on my old Ping Moon bag and an 2nd gen 4 series bag.



    Bought a Jones Players bag but haven't used it yet, just not quite sure about it!

    Yeah I like it, I do prefer the straps on my older one but the pockets and overall feel of the new one



    Funnily enough, I was really digging the Jones bags! What don’t you like about it?

    Why unsure about the Jones? Very happy with mine must say, only difficulty i personally is the single strap, my back tends struggle a little at the end of the round but apart from that I love it. Ping moon bag is a classic!

    I think it’s more the fact I live in the UK and it rains more than it’s dry! Although we are having a crazy summer this year! But for such a pretty bag I would want to use it all the time, but not sure their stand bag is a good enough replacement to the Hoofer.

    My main thinking was using the Jones as my summer bag and the Hoofer in the winter

    Only unsure about the Jones as I'm so attached to the minimalist nature of the Ping Moon bag. The Jones just may be a bit big, but I'll eventually use it and I'm sure I'll love it too.



    Tried moving away from the original Ping bag but it is so perfect for when the weather is like it is right now!

    I’m assuming you can fit 14 clubs in there quite easily?

    Pocket wise, all good there as well?

    What model is yours?

    Yes 14 clubs easily, the pocket on the underside is larger than I thought it would be thus my being turned off it. It's the all-black Players series #001.



    Sure I'll get round to using it at some point but doubtful this summer now.

    Just added this to the bag



    4 iron has been removed in its place, was looking for something more forgiving that I could hit high or low off the tee and into greens



    I only bought this as it was going cheap and I wanted to see how this amount of loft would work for me, with the idea to buy something better after tests, but so far this little Mizuno has blown me away! So easy to hit! Ultra forgiving!



    So, it’s gone straight into the bag!

    I still have those wedges, they are by a brand called Haywood

    The only really reason I don’t use them that often is because of the illegal grooves, I don’t want to get too used to them and then change to the RTX4 when I am playing in a club comp etc.



    Putters are below, but rubbish photos due to the light, also got rid of a few recently so not as many as I used to have
