Snake Eyes S&W - Thank You Stu!

TimVTimV Members Posts: 1,484 ✭✭
This is the set that will go out tomorrow to play at Delray Beach GC... http://www.delraybeachgolfclub.com/

The SE 19 degree Quick Strike is set up just a little shorter than a modern 3 Wood to play as a 4 Wood. The Snake Eyes S&W MB1: 3 iron is set at 39 1/2" and dropping a 1/2" down thru the 10 iron, MP 52-07, and Vokey 258-08. I will be playing a brass milled face Answer style Slotline Putter. I shafted the Snake Eyes heads (generously sent by Stu) with TT Extra Lite .355 taper tips with Sensicore and gripped them with jumbo Karacal wrap style grips.

Assuming that these perform as expected (and I will work to see that they do) I plan on selling both my Mizuno Cimarrons and Ping G10's as complete full sets with bag here locally to get a start on funding the G700 purchase I want to make.

I will also continue playing the 67/68 Spaldings, 71/72 WS, and occasionally the 60/61 WS. I am keeping the Palmer Tru-Matic and lil'David Slinger sets as loaners should any of my erstwhile vintage playing WRXer friends make it this far south.

Pics below.

Keep Swinging,

Tim

    That Snake Eyes hybrid reminds me of my Nickents. The shafts remind me of the TT multi-step lite that I had in a set of Adams A4's back in the day that played particularly well. Nice set of clubs you've built there, Tim. image/good.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':good:' />
    Your problem is LOFT -- Lack of friggin' talent!

    Nice job Tim and Stu!



    Can't believe the Cimarrons are going up for sale though. I've heard only great things about those original Snake Eyes heads, but that doesn't mean they're going to feel like the Mizzies.

    Oh H_ll Ya!

    What an awesome feeling combination of heads, shafts, grips. Shot around 81 my first time out with them.

    (Didn't keep score but know I had an even split of par and boogie.)

    B.S. : The Mizuno Cimarrons are awesome but as understanding as my wife is she's still only going to let me have so many sets without giving me grief. I figure the Mizuno set will be a relatively easy sell and I need to start funding my G700 purchase.

    Keep Swinging,

    Tim

    They look good in that bag better than in the old Lynx Staff bag in the corner of my shop collecting dust and rust. Glad you adopted them and gave them a good home. Footnote--- I think the shafts out of the Snake Eyes are going into MP-68s. More than likely going to pull the Sensicore High Launch out of my beloved worn out VIPs and put them in the 58 Diamondbacks. I do know after this morning me and heavy stiff Pro Pel 2 shafts are done. I hit balls this AM with the Diamondbacks and my back is killing me. Talked to Bear this morning in NY and he told me I was gonna mess myself up with those old heavy stiff shafts. He seems to think those 68s will be one heck of a set with those matched R-300s in them. I know those 82 VIPS with the Hogan Apex #2 shafts are as smooth as a Mother's Love and my back does not hurt. I know if I really want to go way back vintage golf the Precisions do not have real stiff heavy shafts and neither do my 925 Armours

    Had a set of those back in the day and got my first ace with the 8 iron. But, they had to eventually get sold. Too much offset for me and didn't feel as good as some other forgings of that vintage.



    That said, I still have a set of the EV wedges in my vintage bag.
