Kale_m WITB 2019 —mid season additions! UPDATE!

Kale_mKale_m Members Posts: 1,938 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
Got a few companies in my bag for this year.



Driver - G400lst 8.5 turned to 7.5 with Tensei Pro orange 70tx. Plays to 45” and D5.5 swing weight tipped 1/2”.

Really liking this thing. Have a fitting with Tm tommrow. Will compare the spin rates. When I get this consistently in the 2200-2500 rpm spin rate at my speed it is a bomber.



3 wood — testing a m3 hl (turned to 15.5) with a Tensei Pro orange 80tx (need to get it extended an inch to 43” currently at D0 S.W.) loving the feel and flight of This club. Low spin which I need. Just cracked my 3rd M2 tour head so probbaly not going to go that route anymore.



Driving iron — titleist tmb 3 iron. Currently has a x100 in it but will be going to most likely a 90tx Tensei White or a AD-DI 105x. Use this off the tee and into par 5’s. Need a bit more height out of it for those reasons. Don’t get along with hybrids.



Irons — Callaway Apex MB raw 4-pW with TIx100. Hit these at a demo day last spring and loved them. Just hated the chrome. Went with mp18 and then got deal on Tm 730’s. But still had my heart on the callys. Found a hook up and got a new set sent to me in Canada. And these things are sweet!



Wedges — 52/56 milled grind and a 60 hi toe— love the hi toe. Great around the greens and out of the bunkers. The milled grinds are very nice as well. Might prefer vokeys in the 52/56 though. We will see if these stay.



Putter — spider tour black- 35” — this will be my 3rd season with this thing. Cans find anything else that feels as stable and smooth for my stroke. Added a line with pin stripe tape. Works well!



Ball — tp5x and might try the yellow pro v this year as well.

    181 mph ballspeed out of the m6 turned to 7.5*. With PO70tx.

    1900-2200 spin. 11 launch. Was hitting some bombs.



    Same shaft in my G400lst was getting close to the same. Maybe a touch more spin at 2200-2400

    First change is the driver. The G400 was good but seemed to go left on me more then usual. Probably due to the heavy swing weight. It was at D5.5. Turned over a bit to much for me. Traded the head for a 9.5 M4z. Plugged in my Tensei Pro orange 70tx. Plays at 45” , headwieght is 194g, D3 sw, and in the 7.5*. Man this thng is sweet! No lefts (unless a crap swing) and long! Love the feel of this thing!! Sw came out perfect! Don’t have to mess with anything and it came in perfect. I don’t thing the counterbalance effect of the PO has as big of Effect as some say.



    Next up is the driving iron. Picked up a 790 udi 2 iron with the tensei probwhite 90tx. Great stick! Should fil the Gap nicely!



    Last up, sold the spider tour black. Picked up the spider x navy at 35”. Liked the black and played it for 2 years. But this one feels better (higher quality) and looks better . Weighting feels perfect.



    Just waiting to hear back from TM on my broken 3w to see wht goes in that slot.

    New we
    d

    Traded the tm milled grind wedges in for a 52/56 md4 pair

    Also got on the gc quad.

    Driver shaft may be the next thing to tinker with. Knock off some spin and height maybe

    Throwing this in the mix. Hopefully to the range tomorrow to hit my current driver and this to find the best combo.

    Light heads. M6 was 193g bad m4 was 194g

    Both lead taped to 199g.

    M5 rocket with Tensei Pro orange 80tx in the bag.

    Really liking this. I really think the face was flattened on my m3, got some crazy ball flights with that thing. This thing is way more consistent it seems

    Snapped my tensei white 90tx in the udi on a golf trip. Replaced it with the Aldila atx tour 95tx black hybrid shaft.

    Stealth looking stick. See how she goes

    Udi is gone. To inconsistent..

    In the bag is the g410 19* hybrid. Has the stock CB Alta shaft 70s in it. I absolutely love this thing! Super hot off the face. Very accurate. Loving it!

    Alright lots of updates here:



    But first the stuff that has stuck around this year.
    — Callaway apex mb raw 4-PW with TIX100 shafts, 1 flat. Probbaly the softest, easiest to hit blades out there. I always look at new irons but then realize that nothing is going to feel as good as these. So good! Might add the AW over the winter. We will see.

    — next is wedges. 52/56 md4 in the S grind 2 degree flat. Really like these. Was not sure at the start, once I got them bent flat though they were in the bag to stay! 60 hi toe. Like this but might replace with the matching 60 md4 x grind over the winter (can get brand new ones cheap at the demo sales) only reason to replace is for full swing performance, kinda iffy with the hi toe with a. Full swing to a tight pin.

    — Taylormade spider x 34” with a snsr 104cc square grip. Went to the claw grip with this putter and am really putting well. Little paint chip on top. Kinda annoying but still makes putts.

    Now the new stuff!

    — Ping g410 plus 9* driver (-1 loft and flat) 45” length and weight in the middle Fuji pro 2.0 TS 6x. This thing is so good! My m6 and PO70tx was good but was inconsistent for me. The PO shaft might not have been the best for me even though I was fit into it. Felt spinny and like I had to really work to get it to load even At 121mph SS. This Fuji shaft feels great! Would like to try the Lst head to see if there is any difference but probbaly won’t bother right now. Played at 45”

    — Ping g410 hybrid 19. Stock Alta 70s shaft.

    Ditched my 790 udi for this and it is so good. The udi was a 1 trick pony. Off the tee and that is about it. Comes in way to hot and low for anything else. PW 90tx might go in this. Really good with the stock shaft though. No hooks at all.

    — Titleist TS3 16.5 3w evenflow t1100 6.5 75g shaft. Set to .75 flat standard loft and weighting.
    Just pleas fitted for this. First round played today and I am in love! Had the m5 rocket with po80tx in it and it was the worst club in my bag. All over the place. Just cost me strokes. Mostly used off the tee. So easy to hit and love the feel and sound of this!

    Handicap is siting at 1.8 right now. Not bad for having 2 young kids, playing once a week usually and a range session a week!!

    Fire away with any questions!
