    Navy waxed canvas, love the look of the canvas. Also love the single pocket, its a big enough pocket for everything you need. I go to a Jones 2 pocket on days when its ugly and I need pack layers

    Thank you! First time in years I feel really good about the setup to start the season. And that’s a great story, It really is a great putter. I worked in a golf shop About 10 years back. We took it in on a trade. It was the first putter I bent/cut and “fit” to myself. Still attached all these years later. Have others ill have fun with. But this is my gamer

    Some updates here:

    I've been playing the Baby Blades all summer. I started the season with KBS Tour120s in them but bent the tips on 2 of the clubs. I decided to do a full reshaft with the Modus 120s (same as in my CB-57s. I added the "Allister" Ferrule from BB&F which really brought the clubs to life. I regripped ever club I own with the Lamkin crossline cord w/ reminder.

    they are swinging at D2 and I am loving the playability and feel. so much so that I am now selling the CB-57s - you can see my classified ad for more info.

    I also swapped out the 3 iron I was playing and added my 3 wood back in. I flip back and forth here depending on the course. lately 2 woods has been my play (also have a 20.5 975F that goes in and out of the bag)

    will post pics of my other bags in a few weeks. I have some cool clubs to share

    Classy looking bag. What is the logo on the driver cover? Any significance to the I on the putter cover?

    the logo on the Driver cover is Sleepy Hollow Country Club. Not my club but one of my favorite spots I've played. The I is for Iona College - my Alma mater

    Interesting to see baby blades and then a g400 max! Any thought to taking a similar approach with irons and going to something smaller? Love the bag!

    i had the LST for a while, i just love the forgiveness of the Max. it gets me in the short grass the most often! I do have a handful of older drivers I'll play with from time to time.
