    Spent $60 for a used TEE CB Pro 14.5*. ****, it's a real bomber. Even better than my EX9 and EX9 Tour.



    I might drop the EX9 (15*) and get my EX9 Tour to 12.5* (alternate driver). The CB Pro 14.5* has a sure place in my bag this year.

    Please tell me they are a thing.




    Im not a Ping guy....but just saw Shiels vid with them...they look pretty dang sweet. A whole lot like P790's,,,but I have P-790's so maybe I'm a little biased. But they look great!

    My first equipment purchase will most likely be new SM7 in Jet Black, 50F-55M-60M, stamped with my dogs names on them, DGTI onyx shafts, Tour Velvet Cord Grips. Will also be testing irons but not sure of purchase yet as I really started to groove my MP-25's at the end of last year. Hoping to test 718 AP2, '18 Cobra CB, MP-18SC. Going to be a fun spring I can tell.

    Titleist 917 F2 16.5 - a brand new club for £150 which I had £50 credit in the Pro Shop. Well worth a punt I reckon.

    I bought Under Armour Women's Essential No-Show Liner Socks. Which have



    Polyester/Spandex/Nylon Imported

    Reinforced Heel and Toe provides superior comfort and maximum durability

    Flat Knit Construction delivers superior touch and feel

    Dynamic Arch Support helps reduce foot fatigue

    ArmourDry Material wicks moisture accelerates evaporation

    ArmourBlock Technology helps prevent growth of odor-causing bacteria in the sock



    I hope it will comfortable to playing golf.

    I picked up a very nice set of used Burner 2.0 irons 5-PW. Stock 85 gram regular shafts. Lamkin I Line grips look brand new.

    Just need the weather to cooperate. Maybe this week.

    Ordered Mp 18’s muscle backs in 4-9i and cobra f8 with tensei white. Irons supposed to be here today but this winter weather warning is shutting the city down. Houston doesn’t do cold weather well!

    Titleist 915d3 and 915f Driver and 3 wood. The director of golf at my parents club sold them new to me for a "I'd be stupid to turn that price down" deal. Cheaper than used on the bay. image/swoon.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':swoon:' />

    You mean you've been playing the same stuff since 2016?
    Everything has its drawbacks, as the man said when his mother-in-law died, and they came down upon him for the funeral expenses.

    If your equipment is ancient, mine is prehistoric (circa 2005)

    My last purchase equipment purchase of 2017 was an AD DI 95s hybrid shaft for $30 at my local Edwin Watts. Just found out it closed at the end of December yesterday, so I apparently missed out on more great deals while they were closing. My first purchase of 2018 was an Adams Super LS 19* hybrid head to go with the the AD DI. Took it to the range on Sunday, and was pretty impressed with my initial testing.



    My first full priced purchase will probably be a couple of KING Utility irons (3 & 4 irons), or possibly a new driver. Don't need either, but I've been wanting the Utility irons for a while, and the ability to adjust the loft is a big plus with them. The 3 iron would be for windy days, and the 4 iron would be competing with my Adams Super 9031.



    Just can't find anywhere to demo them, so I'd be buying them without trying.

    SM5s could use an update. I would like to find a set of SM6 heads and just swap them because I have custom shafts.....BUT it's near impossible to find a set of wedges, heads only.

    I just received a new set today (they sure look new although they called them used in "mint" condition) of Miura Small Blades 5 iron through PW from 2nd Swing Golf for my son. The price was about twenty dollars a club less than a set of Ping I200's at TGW.

    712's and putter are a bit older than 2016. That's 9 of the 14 clubs.

    Tour Edge EX10 4-wood with Graphite Design AD50 shaft.



    Selling my new Ping G400 SFT 3-wood with Alta CB regular shaft. Can’t get used to the shallow face, but great club!



    Next purchase is an SM7 54/10 as my SM6 was stolen.

    Just bought a (new to me) 816 Alpha DBD driver.

    It should be in Friday.

    My Son has one already and we have 6 or 7 shafts to try in it.

    Once it's adjusted, it should keep me for a while. Lol😁

    Picked up a used XR16 7 wood in great condition. I figure I'd let the 7 wood go head-to-head against my F6 3/4 hybrid and see who wins!

    I picked up a very gently used Epic. I threw in the Rouge i/o from my 816 dbd and I think I may have a winner.
