  1. 1. Must subscribe to Club Champion's YouTube channel HERE: Done 2. Search for your local Club Champion location HERE : Done 3. What Club Champion location would you get fit at? LIVINGSTON, NJ 4. Have you been fit for clubs before? Yes 5. What part of your bag could use a fitting? Much has changed since last fitting. Need to do everything.
  2. There they are! I had a set of these.. got rid of them a while back and have been kicking myself ever since. DId you make them satin yourself?
  3. yeah.. it does make quite a difference. Good thing I am in no particular rush.. but the delays is pretty annoying. It's definitely of no fault of DD.
  4. well.. I am not so lucky.. placed order for a driver and 3w on 8/30 through DD.. got email confirmation that order was placed next morning.. didn't get PXG's confirmation until 9/3.. then nothing until I inquired on 9/10 and was told that shafts were on backorder.. then got an email clubs were shipped out on 13th, expected to arrive at DD on 16th.. now it's 20th and it is still in transit to DD. Rescheduled delivery date is today (20th) but it's not showing to be out for delivery even though it arrived in Portand OR on 9/18. It'll be at least another week before this makes its way to me so we are looking at a month at best.
  5. That's really well put. I tested HZRDUS black for a little while when it came out.. it was awesome but had the feel was a bit harsh.. I loved the shaft and hated it at the same time, then it broke under the grip (seems like a common spot).. By then the testing had moved onto HZRDUS T1100, which was vastly better, I guess I hated it enough that I actually turned down a replacement from TT. Then my T1100 broke at the tip.. Fujikura guys read about my mishaps and offered me a TS Black to try. At the time my feeling was that it's sort of a softer T1100. The feel is worldly better than HZRDUS Black, very close to what T1100 felt but not quite as stout. Then PX came out with Even Flow Black.. and it feels almost identical with Atmos TS Black. I never actually looked at the bend profile of these two but I suspect they are very similar.
  6. Dude.. you and your experiments. I do have a tour issued Superquad and matching R7 steel 13*.. both with the blue shaft. Not X flex but marked TS.
  7. 1. City and State? Warren, NJ 2. Handicap? 5 3. Where do you practice? Home course.. range.. inside set up as well 4. Have you used a personal launch monitor before? Had Voicecaddie SC200.. have Mevo and Garmin G80. Considering Garmin R10 5. Do you have a current iOS device to use with the Ernest software? Yes 6. Do you agree to take high quality photos, write an in-depth review, and be part of an on-going testing thread? Yes
  8. No. the opposite. Adapter would most likely be fine but shaft would not be. Graphite shafts are not meant to be pulled out over and over as the resin would break down by the heat needed to loosen epoxy. You said you have a few uncut ones. why not get a few extra adapters so you don't need to pull and install again and again.
  9. Don't mean to side track... but since we are talking about different kinds of epoxy.. I have been mostly using JB Weld instead of these golf epoxy. It has been working really well but anyone know any drawbacks for using that?
  10. Hmm well the last new driver I bought was a 2017 M1 and it was through a friend with insider price.. the last new irons I bought was Srixon z945 on clearance for $450. Oh wait.. I did just order PXG's driver and 3w because the price was too good to pass up. The retail prices of golf club had pushed me out of market long ago.. I think when drivers crossed $450 and irons went past $100 per club. There are plenty of hardly used 2nd hand ones can be had for steep discount. My entire bag only cost me ~$1000 Now I see Cobra's new hybrid is reaching $500... Are you kidding me?
  11. Has anyone else used this epoxy? It says "sets in 18 hours and cures in 24 hours". 24 hour cuing time is fairly normal for slow cuing type but 18 hour set time?? That seems awfully long.. I had never seen a epoxy that sets in more than 1 hour. I don't know how liquid this mix is but if a shaft isn't inserted all the way in the sleeve, that's an awfully long time for epoxy to flow into the cavity and leaving very little to actually doing the bounding. The long set time would also mean you could potentially damage the bound if you moved the shaft inside the sleeve within that 18 hours, especially towards the end of that period.
  12. Ok so the bound did hold together for 10 balls but came loose to the point that you were able to pull the shaft out by hand. Do you recall if there were epoxy on the tip of the shaft with very clear side walls? Or did the shaft come out looking like the pictures above? (I hope it's not the latter.. LOL), or if there were broken or mushy epoxy bits and pieces? I think that's the most crucial bits of information to see where the bound had failed.
  13. 1. City, State? Warren, NJ 2. Handicap? 4.9 3. Current Iron set? Srixon 965/765 combo with Modus 120X 4. Are you right-handed or left-handed? Right 5. Why do you want to review the Takomo 201 irons? Always love to try new design and technology incorporated 6. Do you agree to participate in an ongoing testing thread, posting reviews and photos? Yes
