    Just bought the 54* Mizuno S18 wedge to match the 60* I got for Christmas. I’m not a huge fan of changing wedge brands, but these are miles better than the Callaway’s they’re replacing.

    I might regrip this winter, but so far I've got enough freebies for Christmas (balls, new driver shaft). Also apparently won a Cleveland (TFI 2135) putter in one of the WRX giveaway threads.

    I probably won't have to buy anything, outside of membership dues and perhaps some Trackman time with the new driver shaft (Aldila Tour Green 70X, playing at 44").

    Maybe a fairway wood. Either a Titleist or a Cobra F7 to line up more with my driver and hybrid. Other than that I am 100% happy with my bag, which is unusual. Definitely going to regrip everything in the bag though.

    SM7 56/60 or a driver of some sort. Those are the only things keeping me from having a dialed in bag.

    Found a decent price on a couple dozen yellow AVX balls, looking for them to arrive soon.

    After years of saying I'd never found anything that works better than a ProV1x for my game I'll be darned if I didn't try a sleeve of the AVX and get hooked like a trout! Leave it to me to start Jonesing for the only ball out there more expensive than a ProV...

    So far Taylormade is kinda dominating everybody's upcoming purchases, especially their irons. The PXG knockoff worked! haha.

    New years night I ordered some shafts - FST 90 to replace my stock T-step 90's on my R7's. These cheap ($9) performing shaft are similar to TaylorMade ones. In fact, FST supplies TM with shaft the last couple years.

    Also ordered on the same night, XE1 65* wedge... I was just curious when I saw the C3i commercial... For far less cheaper, the XE1 would be fun to sample with before It goes on Ebay.....or sell it to a friend. But you never know, if this works, it'll stay in the bag.....

    First purchase of '18 will join the final purchase of '17..

    Aldila Black Mamba 60tx on its way to go into the '17 M2 I picked up in a boxing week sale. I made a choice to jump on the previous model on the cheap and go with a premium shaft...results pending!!

    I'll post pics when they are united.
