Driver - Nike VR Pro Str8 fit, 10.5, DI 6S, 44.5". Driver SS ranges from 103-110 and I haven't felt like I outswing the 6S at all.





null_zps5e431b07.jpg





4 wood - 17* Xhot pro with DI 7S shortened to 42". This replaced my sq2 early this season.



null_zpsdda2b532.jpg





Have been playing the Amp hybrid for a month or so now, no complaints at all. Its hot and the stock lightweight shaft kicks the ball high in the air without going left, so far at least. I adjust the loft down a little on windy days and up a little if its wet out which is a nice feature to have.



null_zpsefd363a0.jpg



Irons- Nike pro combos from about 6 years ago, switched from S300 to PX 6.5 flighted at the beginning of last year. Love the accuracy, feel like I need to work a little too hard with the long irons. Did some blue paintfill myself on the irons, the swoosh in the chrome is a B****. Play multi compounds in most everything including the irons.

null_zpsbe69c11d.jpg





Here is my experiment to hopefully not have to work so hard. The jury is out still for sure, not sure I like the pxi shafts.



null_zpse4991b67.jpg





Currently playing a 52/56/61 setup with the wedges, absolutely love both the 56 and the 61. Notice the wear spot on the bottom of the 56, do I need to bend it flat or is that more from opening it up in bunkers?

I switch between the recent pickup pictured below and a newport 1.5 that I've had for a few years now. I also have a pretty sweet oilcan newport 2 thats probably rusting in my brothers bag right now. image/angry2.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':angry22:' /> Picks of the 1.5 to come shortly, decent paintfill job for a DIY that I want to show off. So far the SC is still winning the battle but I really like the Kuchar on fast greens. I haven't had any problem with distance control which was my biggest worry but it gets more awkward the longer the stroke.

If I were to make any changes soon it would probably be in the iron department, may have something coming together on that front soon. Not sure about the callaways and I'd still like something more forgiving, think ap2. I'll probably try out a g25 3 wood at some point when prices drop, I've heard they are point and shoot which vibes with the few times I've hit someone elses on the course. Some kind of hybrid long iron may make its way in soon, I'd probably use it during the warm summer months and switch over to the Cobra hybrid in the "offseason." Also for the record this site is basically the sole reason I'm turning into a club ho. image/censored2.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':censored2:' />

    Kinda pissed about it too because I hit them well on a launch monitor a couple times. I picked up like 6 yards and had a great high launch angle. Unfortunately I didn't hit them off grass and for some reason that made everything feel different.

    I agree, not sure how I didn't notice when testing. They are up in the BST so obviously they aren't staying, will update with pics of what's next hopefully this week. Very excited for it although there isn't anything wrong with the way the nikes are performing.



    Still loving the K grind but I've noticed it doesn't spin a ton. I don't have anything to compare it to in hand, just had a few shots roll out more than expected the last few rounds.

    The hybrid is money. I've been struggling hitting the ball low and left and 200-205 was killing me, routinely a couple bogeys and a double on long par 3's turing 75 into 80. Hit the 23* and 27* g25's hoping for forgiveness and height, the 27* went between 198-206 carry depending on ballflight so I went with that. ~10 rounds in and no complaints, the stock tour stiff hasn't had a tendency to go left yet. Will probably pick up a matching 3 wood at some point if it continues to work for me, I've hit playing partners with good success and read a lot about how forgiving they are on here.



    I'd have to honestly say the irons are only average right now but I have been swinging poorly for about the last 6 weeks. The shafts seem low spin, good for straightness but not good for my constant low pull miss into greens. The heads are what they are, some of the best feeling clubs out there imo. Oh well, I've wanted them for a year or so and won't be giving up on them until I see what they do when I'm swinging better. Sent the heads to UST, build quality was on point if anyone is curious.



    Only other thing of note is the putter, the Kuchar is seriously the s***. I've never putted better and I grew up 30 yards from a green, I was pretty good at one point.

    I LOVE the Nippon 950gh's. I've played these in my last 3 iron sets (Cleveland CG4 Tour, TM TP MC's, and now G25) and I've really grown to love the feel. They are SUPER light, which I have always preferred in general. They actually feel a lot tighter than you would think a sub 100g steel shaft would feel. I don't overspin ANYTHING so I don't really usually have to worry about ballooning at all but going from MC head to G25, the ball flight was much much MUCH higher, but spin is still VERY controllable so the ball doesn't get affected by wind any more/less than MC. Great combination in my opinion for anybody that is low/medium spin player with the irons or just prefers a lighter shaft in the irons (although if you are med-high/high spin iron player then I would suggest getting them hard-stepped). Ping WRX dept is absolutely phenomenal. I had the irons built with Lead Edge grind, which basically dulls the lead edge just a hair, which works fantastic with the combination of wet conditions in northeast US and my steep swing.



    Simply put, give the irons a shot, it should be a very cheap experiment as you can find the 950gh's on ebay for a song if you're patient.



    Send me a PM if you have any other questions man! Best of luck to you!

    The G25s where high launch and high spin. I did use an S300 shaft but the heads have a very low CG so it was bad. They were easily a club to two shorter than my TM MC with C-taper stiff. I knew after 9 holes they were bad. The G25 hybrid was also a spin machine that ballooned into the wind. The G25 3 wood was great off the tee as it was point and shoot and never missed a fairway with it for 5 rounds when I used it. I hated it off the deck as I spun it too much. I am keeping the 3 wood as a tee ball but put a adams tight lies tour in for a fairway wood off the deck. I really think you would be great in a C-taper stiff shaft. They only weight 120 grams but keep the spin down and play firmer to flex (6.2 I recall). Pair it with a lower spinning head you like and you will be fine. I would avoid any GI head though.

    Why didn't you try the c taper in the g25? Might've made a big difference.

    I did, the spin was very similar with the C-taper in the G25 head. It didn't make a difference as the head really dictated the spin. I just need a lower spin and lower launch head. I'm sure they are great for a lot of golfers, just not for me.

    Couple pics, new Cru headcovers thanks to a great WRX'er Tbone84, I think they look great. Under the driver headcover is a 10.5 g25 with a tour spec S tipped an inch playing at my preferred length of 44.5". Also a BST find and another great transaction, thanks boulAAYY. Already have a few rounds in with it, I initially thought it was short of my nike but when I turn it over a little its been getting out there to my normal spots. It's also down to highs in the high 60's so I think the ball is starting to fly a little short. Can't argue with how straight it is though and it hasn't been hooking left on me much at all, misses are all slight fades right which is playable. I think I'm realizing I'm the poster child for the honeymoon period though, every new club I grab works great for a couple weeks.

    Didn't realize you'd gone to a G25, B. How do you like it with the Speeder? I tried a Tour Spec 7.2, and couldn't keep it on the planet (I think I tried a 6.2 at the Launch Pad and was killing that, but the 7.2 was a totally different story. Ended up in a Fuel Tour Spec 60x, tipped 1", and that's been working great for me.

    Thanks guys!



    3 jack, I'm planning on doing a big end of season write up soon but the basics are I like it. It's 10-20 yards shorter than a nutted drive with the Nike but its so straight it's ridicous. No trackman time but launch angle probably doubled, which is a good thing for me. Wouldn't be surprised if the head spec's @ 11 or 11.5 degrees but that's fine. I've got a DJ 7S waiting for a tip that I'm excited to try but the tour spec doesn't go left and will be tough to beat. I'm also hoping some of the distance loss is late year weather but as long as its in play I don't really care.

    The G25 driver is stupid forgiving. I agree its not as long as some drivers but the forgiveness and hitting more fairways far outweigh the extra yards you can get with other drivers.

    Nice bag Swiz!



    I agree with you about the actual loft on the G25. I ordered mine through a dealer who got it through Ping WRX at 9.5* and it launches quite a bit lower than the 9.5* off the rack. I also agree that it really is a fairway finder extraordinaire. This winter I set mine in the "+" position to get a little more carry since the ball basically plugs when it hits the ground. It's also good off the deck because of the low profile sole...aka it doesn't have dials or compasses or weights or, well...you get the idea.

    I've definitely banged it a few times off the deck with good results. I played it in all 3 settings and didnt see much difference. Driver will be huge for me because of the club I joined, most of the publics around here are wide open and you can get away with bad drives. Really excited for next season and my bag in general, hoping to get down to a 0 or + index, even if its just for one two week period.



    Couple other notes ill expand on later, the 27* g25 hybrid wasn't taken out for a round after picking it up and I've got super peening oranges going in the 302's.

    I'd say there's a pretty good chance that if you're getting significantly higher launch, with a Speeder in it, you're probably right that the true loft is higher than what it says on the head (that's common for Ping--when I ordered mine I asked for a head digitally lofted at 8.5*, because it's a higher launching head than I had been playing, and much more loft than that for me would spin too much to the point where it would cost me distance), because that's a pretty low launch/low spin shaft, which wouldn't seem to be a perfect fit for you, since you launch pretty low, but I know you need to keep your spin down, so you may have hit on the right combo of a higher loft head with a low launch shaft. The DJ might be an even better combo for you. I'm interested to see your



    For the last few years, I had been trying to get my spin down as low as possible, and the heads that were the best at doing that we're really deep faced (Superdeep, Fast 12 LS), and when I hit it on the screws, they were LONG. The problem is, I don't nut it every time, and the really low spin heads (this was before the current generation of really low spin heads like the SLDR, etc., which I haven't tried) were unforgiving on the misses, both in ball speed (like 1.40 smash) and directionally. So I decided to trade those monster drives on my perfect hits for more distance and a better chance of being in play on the bad ones. The G25 is still plenty long when I hit it in the center of the face, and it's much longer on the misses. It's not totally foolproof, as I have demonstrated on several occasions with my truly horrible swings, but the ones that I miss a little bit seem to want to fly straight.

    I hear ya 3 jack. Next year should be interesting with all the low spin stuff that will be out. Haven't had the g25 on trackman to see spin numbers but they are probably high, I liked a comment though in I think Pures thread about how the low spin misses went to worse places on the course. If I hoe anything next year though it will probably be something low spin, either slider or BBA.



    Been meaning to do an update forever but I've been lazy, on vacation though and the bag that came was

    G25 10.5 TS 6.2

    17* xhot DI7

    Amp cell pro turned down to 19*

    27* G25 hybrid

    5-pw OG nike pro combos

    52/56 vokey and 60 scratch

    Kuchar model 2.



    Only good deal I could find on black friday was some cheap M projects, I've worn them twice down here and they are great. I had a spike pair right when they came out and went with the other kind because I lost a spike every round, loved the feel of the shoe though.



    Also got a Betti Sig series 5 delivered down here for my brother, its so F'in awesome. Feels great, looks great, the headcover and grip are both by far the nicest I've ever seen. Quality piece of work without a doubt. I'm gonna put it in play tomorrow.

    I might have played the same set of irons for too long to switch haha. It's amazing how different an iron plays with different shaft/head combos than your used to. For example I've hit 3 buddies random mizunos with PX shafts and hit them all fine, the x forged with pxi and now the recoils just haven't done it for me at all. It's all turf interaction, very weird.



    I'm gonna do a longer write up when I get home, have had the shafts going in them for a while now but didn't see the point in rushing to get the work done with all that snow back home. Going back to traditional steel though with some unique flavor still.

    Would you even be able to keep playing your Pro Combos this year if you wanted? Groove rule would require you to switch for tournament play, wouldn't it, or are they conforming?

    I would assume they aren't, first time I've thought of that though. They are OLD.

    That's why I had to make the change -- just got my S56s back from Sweet today. He pulled the X100s from my S58s and put them in the 56s (instead of the KBS Tours that were in them). Going to try to get to the range this weekend to test them out.
