2019 Bag - Hogan and Ping

T ShafT Shaf ClubWRX Posts: 2,498 ClubWRX
Can't remember the last time I did a WITB (if I ever did). Just completed this build and am very happy with how they look and feel. Tomorrow will be the start of testing them at the range then the course next week. It may not be obvious but I buy and sell a lot (although it started 14 years ago - yes I'm older). The bag that this replaced was definitely my longest tenured bag ever. Figured since new rules this year, why not a new bag...sound logic, right? In truth I have loved the look of the FT Worth Blacks for some time and finally pulled the trigger when they introduced the Equalizer Black wedges. While I like uniformity of looks, I've never been one to go all out like this, but tastes change. Also don't like red much, however I think these look great.



Due to elbow issues I switched to graphite 6-7 months ago and decided to try the KBS TGI this go around - while KBS says they are a graphite KBS Tour, their 5% lower trajectory, 5% less spin & 5% more distance description falls in line with the C-Taper, which I have always enjoyed. Shafts are straight in, and while lighter than I've ever played (had Accra Tour i 125's before), the plan is to shorten the back swing to gain more consistency. All irons are .5" over standard, and sw at D-7 (the grips are very light). All irons have Cell-Parts "Hogan" ferrules and The Gripmaster Red/Black leather perforated grips (been a fan of leather for some time).



Put KBS C-Taper R+ tipped slightly stiffer in the wedges to keep weight a little more in line - going from 100g in the TGI's to 115g in the C-Tapers. I've always liked these shafts in wedges and based on the Equalizer's slightly unique CG placements, I think they will hep with trajectory control.



The Ping G400 Max is new and mated with Accra Tour Z Xtreme 275 M3 tipped 1" playing 44.5" (should be able to find more fairways with this!



The G400 2H has a KBS TGI Prototype Hybrid 85s in it. Decided to try this as a fairway replacement. Love the looks! May put a G400 stretch in later.



Also have a 24* Ft Worth Hi with TGI 100 in it. The loft is directly between the 4 & 5 so I may take them out at times to mess with a slightly minimalist bag.



Finally, put the Ping Sigma G Tyne H in the bag. Installed a Putter Lounge matte black shaft and Corded SS Pistol GT 1.0 on it - really like the look and feel of this putter!



Enough talk...here are the clubs...thanks for looking!



All Ping...tastefully done!

    I'm going to take a guess and say that you like to murder out your bag.



    Just a guess though...





    Great bag, BTW.

    The DBM finish wears very well! I had cobra forged pro’s for a while and was extremely impressed with the wear. It is significantly more durable than pvd!

    Didn’t have to jump too far for that conclusion!



    I’ve done it with putters but this is the first time for basically the whole bag. Not something I set out to do but I like it...

    I put them in...hopefully at some point they will make it an option but these shafts cost a lot more.

    We'll see if it earns a spot...have to be very special to do so....if so, I'll live with it. Hopefully Hogan makes the Hi's in black sometime too.

    I own a set of Ft Worth Blacks. Would love to learn more about the shaft itself how it performs, etc. I'm using KBS Tour V X which I dislike the weight and feel. I have Nunchuk xi for my Scorgolf wedges.

    I want that Ping Tyne with the black shaft. Did you put the shaft in or order it somewhere custom?

    It looks so much better!



    I put it in, it's from The Putter Lounge - .355 tip flat black. It's the most durable black finished shaft I've used.

    If they did that, I'd buy them too! Hopefully they will...I'm liking the FT Worth's the more I play them. The wedges are going nowhere anytime soon...very impressed with them. Thanks!

    The shafts feel great. Good flight, very consistent. Mid flight, not a ton of spin, haven't had any issues with ballooning yet. I'm really liking them!
