    First actual purchase was Epic 5-wood off CPO to test/compare against the GBB Heavenwood I've been carrying. Been so long since I carried a 5-wood. That 14th spot for me just can't settle going back and forth between 3hybrid, heavenwood and now 5-wood. I really want my 3-wood spot to be a power tee ball club.<br />
    <br />
    I applaud Taylor Made on the 790s and players irons. First Taylor Made irons I've even considered looking at in a long while. 790s were nice but the blade length is just a touch too long for me and couldn't knock the CF16 out of the bag.<br />
    <br />
    Only other 2018 changes I can see potentially are...<br />
    -- 8-PW change (like the Apex but just always tempted to put a blade or something else in. Those Apex MBs are so tempting)<br />
    -- Shaft change for 8-PW (I need to add some weight back- gone too light)<br />
    -- 5 hybrid (don't want to but love the 4 so much)

    Nice pick up!! I just received my second purchase of the year (third if you count my new Nike shoes...god [email protected]%* I need to get control its not even the end of January!!!). Brand new custom JD Red spider with the sightline after my putter fitting. The things feels so much better than what I was using and I don't need to adjust where I aim, just line up and go!

    I just got an M1 after telling everyone I could how much I dislike golf clubs with lots of white paint on them. <br />
    <br />
    Came with an Aldila Rogue Silver shaft. Looks like it's only been hit about 5 or 6 times but has a slight stud mark in the carbon. Half the original RRP. <br />

    F8 One length irons with the KBS Tour V shaft in stiff. The V is 110gm although I play the x-stiff V in my Ansers at the moment, I want these F8 clubs to be less "going after" than my Ansers. Contemplating a F8 one length hybrid at the moment but according to DD, its been back ordered till March.<br />
    <br />
    I just luv the pricing from DD, especially with their $50 off irons deal, cannot be beat <img src='<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />
