  1. So I work part time at one of the big box stores in Club Repair, and it’s not just True Temper. Grips are a problem, both putter grips and regular grips. It’s not just just Golf Pride either. The putter grip selection is very slim, including Superstroke, which is the putter grip that I seem to throw the most on putters. Lamkin Crossline grips are out of stock in my store, and there’s usually a bunch of those. I haven’t seen a Crossline cord grip in forever, and I happened to run across those at a local Muni, so I bought a few while I was there. Steel and Graphite shaft options ar
  2. I just got a Titleist Players 4 bag. I'm coming from a Mizuno BDR3 bag, and I liked it, but the Titleist is lighter, which is the main reason for the switch. The 1 lb difference is very noticeable at the end of a round or long range session. The only thing I liked better about the Mizuno was it has a little more pocket space, but other than that, the lighter bag is a big selling point.
  3. Up for sale is a full set of Modus shaft pulls that are cleaned and prepped for installation. The 5-P are Modus 125s shafts, and the 3 wedge shafts are Modus 125 wedge shafts. Asking for $180 shipped CONUS Only for all the shafts. I'd go $120 for the Modus 125s shafts, and $60 for all 3 wedge shafts. Prices include shipping to CONUS only. SHAFTS ARE SOLD! (Reason for edit: I mistyped the price for the wedge shafts separately. I meant to type out $60, not $80) I want to sell them all together if possible. I'll listen to breaking them up if I have a buyer for just the ir
  4. What specific feedback do you mean as to where you missed the sweet spot? I was one of the testers on here when these irons came out and they’re still in the bag. Being able to tell where I missed the sweet spot on each iron has never been an issue for me and there are no issues with distance control or hot spots with the irons either.
  5. There was a time when I thought a 4 wood was plenty for me, but when I moved to the DFW area from Houston, I began to realize that a 3 wood was a better option than the 4 wood off the tee on certain courses that my friends and I have in the rotation. That little bit of extra distance off the tee that I get from the 3 wood has made those courses a bit easier for me to play. I will still lean towards the 5 wood off the deck if I'm in the fairway because there is more trust in that club.
  6. I still play the PTx Pro irons that I won here on Golfwrx. I’m getting to the point where they will need to be replaced. I’m leaning towards the zX5/ZX7 combo set or another set of PTx Pros. I was fortunate enough to hit the Srixons on grass with my preferred shaft, so that helped a lot. Both are really good thru the turf, and I’ll be happy with either set new.
  7. I plan on getting the ZX7s at some point this year, and I know it's going to be a wait whenever I get around to ordering them. I was going to order them with s300 shafts in them, but I may just order them with the standard Modus shafts and swap out for the DG myself. I currently have a set of Modus 125s in my Hogan PTx Pros, and after demoing the ZX7 with a s300, it made me realize how much I miss the DG profile. I may just reshaft those with the DG, and then be as patient as possible with new irons.
  8. Rose and Fire Mallet covers are really good quality. No issues with the one I have falling off of my putter.
  9. I tried it recently, and really liked how it performed. I usually play the TP5, and the Z Star XV performed very similar to the TP5. It was just a little firmer, but not in a bad way. If I didn't have a den caddy full of TP5 balls, I would definitely load up on the XV.
  10. Hybrids are great clubs to have. What has helped me is going shorter and heavier with the hybrid shaft. I've used a s300 in my 23* in the past, and dispersion has been really good with that. With the 19* hybrids, I have found shafts in the 100g range work best for me as well. I personally have found that playing them in the same spot as an iron, and hitting them like an iron gives me the best results. Anytime I've tried sweeping them, it's never good. It's either a hook, or I come out of it, and it's think and a weak ball flight to the right.
  11. In my personal experience, their descriptions hold true. I have a pretty smooth swing, and I can’t load the Hzrdus shafts at all, especially the black. It’s a straight push or dead pull. I’ve gotten along a lot better with the Evenflow shafts when trying out clubs.
  12. I reshafted my irons with Modus 125s shafts last year from DG TI s400, and after getting the head weights exactly where I wanted them, the clubs all came out to the exact same SW. I didn't measure the shafts at all. That told me how tight their tolerances are.
  13. I'm playing mine at 45" and have the head hot melted in a pretty neutral position in the head. I didn't want to wait around for aftermarket weights because they weren't available when I got my SIM2.
  14. This isn't just a TM issue....I have a buddy who ordered a Callaway Epic Max LS March 24th, and Callaway is saying online that his order isn't expected to be done until the end of June.
  15. https://www.golfworks.com/cobra-king-f8-driver-weights/p/cb9034/ They have the 6g and 12g fairway wood weights available on Golfworks You may have to check ebay for other weights.
  16. I also thought the f8 fairway weights were removeable. Is the added weight something you want to be permanent with the shorter shaft? You can add hotmelt in the head to get it where you want weight wise. There are hotmelt kids online that you can buy that are fairly easy to use. Start with lead tape, and once it's where you want it, weigh it, and add that much weigh to the head.
  17. I had the regular SIM 10.5* for a while last year, and got it replaced by TM because the speed pocket started to come apart. I could have still played it if they didn't replace it, but they sent me a SIM2 10.5* as a replacement. I've played them both with my 2 go to shafts, which are a Elements Earth 7f4 and a Diamana Whiteboard 70s, and the SIM2 is more consistent for me. I really haven't noticed much difference in terms of distance overall. Part of that is I was using the SIM during the summer when it was nice and hot here in Texas, but on warmer days with the SIM2, I'm seei
  18. Was it only a 1 time pull or has it been pulled a few times from different adapters and reused multiple times? If it’s been in different heads, then I could see that being a possibility. If it was only pulled one time, then snapping shouldn’t happen...I’m not saying it doesn’t, but it shouldn’t if it was prepped properly the first time it was prepped and then pulled/prepped for the TM install.
  19. Check for the ACE Crossline Cords on eBay. Found some for pretty cheap recently. They’re a great combo of the crossline cord with the ACE shock absorption.
  20. I think his clothes look fine. I can't think of anything off the top of my head that was just terrible. I really like how UA golf polos and pullovers fit, and their shorts are good. I like how some of their pants fit as well. I don't like their hats and their shoes don't fit me right.
  21. If you're comparing the V2 to the Hzrdus Smoke Black, the V2 for me is much easier to launch. I can launch the V2 and actually load the shaft. I can load the Hzrdus Black or Smoke Black at all.
  22. I got the RAD Speed Tour 5 wood last week. I was using the M3 3HL, and the RAD speed is more consistent. I'm playing it at 16.5*, and it launches higher for me than the M3, and it's more forgiving for my swing, even though it's smaller. The rails are great, and I was surprised about how much I like the Motore F1. I have a Diamana Whiteboard 80s that's coming in today that I'm going to toss in it. I like something a bit heavier in my fairways.
  23. I've had the raw Zipcores for a while now. I have a 48* bent to 49*, a 52* bent to 53*, and a 56* bent to 58*, all with the Modus 125 wedge shaft and all mid bounce. I originally ordered the 52* and 56* with the DGTI s400 shafts in them, but decided to reshaft them with the Modus 125 wedge after ordering the 48* with it. I'm really liking them, especially after modifying the leading edge a little by rounding it a bit on the 52* & 56*. They cut thru the turf too easily for me. I'll also be doing the same to the extra 56* that I have in the closet once I put that one in play
  24. I switched from the DG profile (s300 & TI s400) shafts after 12 or so years this past summer. I'll be 37 here soon and I'm still in good shape, but the heft of the s400 shafts in the heat was getting a bit much. I went with the Modus 125s, and I've really liked them so far. They're only a few grams lighter, but I've noticed that it's not as taxing when I'm hitting a lot of range balls. There are times where I miss the DG profile because I was used to it for long, but the Modus is a really good shaft.
  25. I just got the RAD Speed Tour 5 wood yesterday. I traded in a M3 3HL for it, and took it to the range immediately. I could tell right off the bat that this was going to be a better fit for me than the M3 just from turf interaction alone. It's also easier to elevate off the deck if I need to hit a higher shot. I had it set to 16.5*, while the M3 HL was set 1 click higher for loft. I normally don't keep stock shafts just because I like to tinker, but I may keep the Motore F1 that came with it. It felt really good.
