Fairway: TS2 15* set c1, Mitsubishi Diamana s+ Limited 70s blue board tipped 1/2”

DI: U500 2i hazardous smoke 90 hybrid

Irons: 4i Bridgestone Tour B JGR hf2, 5-pw Bridgestone Tour B X CB modus 120 stiff

Wedges: National Custom Works Proto 50* modus 125 wedge, Scratch Raw 1018 54, Scratch Raw 1018 58 modus 125 wedge

Not sure about putter yet. Will keep both and rotate depending on how I feel that day. Absolutely love both.

    Thanks @Porterm23. I’m a little late to the game with Scratch, but man do they feel good and produce. Got lucky on the bst forum here last summer. They were brand new.

    Moving on from the ts2 fairway. Will update as I move into the next fairway. Need to decide soon as the weather here in Dallas is getting better. The ts3 driver will be firmly in the bag this season. Very impressed with it. Head weight seems to be a little light, thinking about adding some hotmelt as I have with my last 2 drivers to bring it up to 200-204 grams. I keep trying to replace the tour b's, but every time they prove to me why they are still there. Nothing yet feels as good and produces like they do.

    For the wedges, they feel incredible! I'm having a little trouble with the 58 as the grind is grabbing a little on the turf and not as smooth as I like. Which leaves me in a dilemma. I can possibly bring it to my club fitter and have him grind a little more relief or move on from it. If I move on from it then I have to move on from all 3 as I'm not sure I can look at 3 different style wedges...ocd can be a problem at times. It's a unique grind as it has a channel in the middle to help lower the leading edge but also has high bounce. The delicate chips around the green is the area of focus for me with the grind. If anyone has an idea on what to do here I'm all ears.

    Will try and keep up with posting as things come and go. We shall see what happens.

    Thanks guys. Just traded the ts2 for the ts3. Should be here tomorrow which is a better fit for me. I hit the ts3 again on Monday just to confirm and was getting much better launch and spin. My fitter is going to grind away a little on the trailing edge of the 58* to smooth it out. The Scratch wedges feel too good at the moment.

    @nitram how are those cbx fairways treating you at the moment. Have always been intrigued with Exotics but never played them. Also, how stiff is the Rogue White playing? That shaft has my attention.

    The CBX are worthy replacements for the CB2's they replaced. I've been bagging Exotics fairways since '06 and they just keep performing. The Rogue is a sensational shaft. I think it "plays" true to flex but it doesn't "feel" like it. For example, my last Trackman session I averaged 108.8 mph and although according to the fit chart I "fit" into the X (>105), I made the decision to go with the S tipped .75" for two reasons. I have days where my SS is less and don't want to be on the low end of the performance threshold. Secondly, The tipped S feels exactly like the un-tipped X. But for me I have more workability, more launch height (77' vs 64'), and 6 more yards of carry with the S. I've stated on a couple other threads how good the White is for me. It's the best performing driver shaft I've hit since the Whiteboard was introduced and quite possibly could be my all-time favorite. Time will tell.

    Awesome bag! What do you think about the u500 off the deck, in lieu of a 3 iron?? I’ve carried driving irons in the past, and they are awesome off the tee, but I’ve always struggled a bit hitting them off of tight lies.

    @nitram That's awesome info and really appreciate the response. My driver ss sits around 105 with a moderate transition. Looking for something to provide stability without feeling overly boardy. Very curious in how the stiff would play with slightly less tipping. I keep hearing how stable this shaft feels and performs. Might have to give this thing a shot. My trusted fuji Motore speeder has been great, but I keep hearing how awesome the rogue white performs.

    @Xander_Reigns I struggle with hybrids and fairway woods. Irons are my strong suite and I just play to my strengths. It's funny because I feel more comfortable hitting a 2i or 4i then I do hitting a 3 wood. The u500 has been absolutely fantastic. I get almost driver like numbers from the tee. I don't hit it a bunch from the fairway, only if I have to chase one onto the green. If I feel like I can't fly my 3 wood to the green, I pull the u500 and try to run it on. My favorite part about it, it's not huge and looks more like a traditional iron. The larger utility irons I could never hit from the fairway. Because this one has a smaller profile, it is much easier to get compression and sweep it off the turf.

    Also, I'm a high ball hitter. The 2i was giving me optimal numbers. Tried the 3, but did not fit my gapping properly.

    A couple more pics just because. Just went back to the trusted Diamana s+ Limited blue board in the ts3 fairway

    . Tipped it .5 inches. Just hard to beat that smooth feel. Plus, it sets up so nice with a great look. Also added a pic of the tour b 8i to show how nice they are at address. Just about the perfect shape to my eye. Also, Titleist really did an awesome job with the u500. This has to be the least amount of offset I have seen with an OEM utility club in a long time.

    Thanks @TIM929 I’ve tried many times to move into something else but nothing has prevailed to this point. They don’t get the same amount of love as J15’s, but I actually like the size of the tour b’s a little better.

    Went for a gapping session yesterday with my fitter for all wedges and ended up ordering 3 raw sm8’s. Will post pics once they are built. The great thing about his service is he has heads and is building them onto my current shaft set up along with a little custom grind.

    If anyone wants some raw Scratch wedges and a NCW Proto hit me up. Will put an add up in the next few days along with some extras.

    Well, I picked these raw sm8’s up today. Have not played vokey’s since sm4, but I have to say the sm8’s are pretty great! What sold me the most was during the fitting my distance control from 100y and in was incredible! Put my modus 125 wedge shafts in and all is good.
