    Definitely looking forward to getting on the course with these for a full round. Only short game work so far but they have impressed me.


    Great ball!

    I think I'll like it. The one round I played with it, I hit it like a dog. Massive swing issues.

    Updated thoughts on the TP5x golf ball:



    I've played my last four rounds with the TP5x. The first round was horrible due to an inconsistent swing, but the last three have been better and better. I chose the TP5x because of its higher flight when compared to the TP5.



    Off the driver, it's very solid. I like the higher launch and it's proven easy to work in either direction. Distance has been comparable to the Prov1X which is slightly longer than the Nike RZN Tour Platinum I've been using. I can't say it's any longer off the irons than any other ball I've tried, but again...the flight is good. Very easy to work and I can keep it low when needed. Short game control is nice...can spin it when needed or play the bump and run as well. Putts have been going in for the last few rounds so I think the ball is great off the putter.



    I would say that this ball is 95% the same as a Prov1x in performance. They have a slightly different feel, but otherwise very close.

    So where do we sit on the driver?

    Did your Epic 3 and 5 come in yet?

    Sticking with the M2 driver as of now. Can't get an Epic dialed in. We are hosting a demo day with Callaway and TM next month so I'm hoping if we have some slow time I can hit the Epic with the fitter then. If it's the same guy from last year...he's really good. I might have a Flex 440 arriving soon though...so more fun things to tinker with.



    Epic 5 wood showed up about two weeks ago. 3 wood will hopefully be here next week. The 5 wood is really good. Might be longer off the deck than my M2 3 HL. Hopes are high for the 3 wood after hitting the 5.



    Took this week off from karate to let my shoulder heal up some. Doesn't hurt to swing a club...but some of the moves in class causes a lot of pain/soreness. So I've been getting a lot of practice in.

    Epic 5 wood looks great behind the ball. Very solid club.

    You using that cool M2 cover?



    Demo next month, that's like almost a year in a dogs life!



    I'm going to do another driver fitting next week I think.



    Have you taken the F7+ out on the course yet?

    I've got it put up right now. But I might use it tonight. Looks so good I'd hate to have someone steal it off my driver.



    We've got demo days three Saturdays in a row next month. Different companies each time. You still not happy with the M1?



    Only hit the F7+ on the range. I liked it. Hit it with the Tensei CK Blue. Need to give it a go on the course.

    You have the Epic 3 and 5 wood in the bag or SZ? Why did you choose one over the other? What do you like better with the Epic over M2's?

    I have the SZ models. I liked the shape and size better. The regular Epic is more forgiving though.



    Not sure the SZs are better than the M2 fwy. I had both the SZ 3 & 5 and the M2 3HL in the bag yesterday. I hit the M2 3HL off one tee and never hit the SZs.

    Been a long time since I updated this. I’ve been through a fair amount of changes and this is the current state of my bag.
    The wedges, putter, and hybrid are locked in for the time being. All else is up for grabs.

    Yep. Still have the old VR Pro II 3 hybrid in the bag. My VPCs are still in an old staff bag as well as an Origin B2-01 and then all my old Oven stuff is in another bag. Can’t let that stuff go.

    Decided to put my old VPCs back in the bag. I’ve most recently been playing Mizuno 919 Tour irons. The Nikes have proven over the last few days of testing to be more forgiving and equal distance per iron. Nostalgia kicked in as well. I just began to miss the darn things.

    So my iron flip flopping has continued. Nike VPCs to Mizuno 919 Tours back to Nike VPCs back to 919s. I’ve reshafted my VPCs with Modus 120 Tours and have put them back in the bag. The long irons are definitely more forgiving with the Nike’s. I’ve thought about splitting the set...long iron Nike’s and short irons 919s but I don’t think I’d ever be comfortable with the weight and look differences between the two.
    The only extra thing I’ve got going right now is with the 7 iron. I’ve had a lot of elbow problems lately and am trying an Aerotech Steelfiber 110 in the 7 iron. It’s soft stepped one time. I’ve hit it at least 100 times over the past few days with little to no pain in my right elbow so that’s encouraging. Ball gets plenty high, but I sometimes get a jumper with it. Those random shots go a full club longer. Gonna give it a few more practice sessions to see how it goes.
