  1. When you come hone from putting very well, and select another (completely different style, weight etc) putter to use on your next round, because it might just be even better. (It won’t)
  2. I recently received a sample pack of these, and have now had a few rounds with them. the XV is my preference (I’m a V1x user) and I have to say that I’ve been really impressed with the XV. I play on a coastal course, so there’s always plenty of wind, and the XV is really good in the wind. Spin around the green is very good (Id say a bit higher than the V1x), and I really like the firm feel with the putter. with regards durability, I’ve played the same ball for 18 holes on most rounds, and saturday’s round included a couple of skinny bunker shots, and at the end of
  3. Anybody who has used the phrase “point and shoot” when referring to any club, is always exaggerating! If your club had that big of an effect on your game, you would be on tour, and the fact that you aren’t, shows that you are clearly exaggerating! similarly, those that say “I would be off +4 if it wasn’t for my putting/irons/or whatever small part of your game you’ve picked, and that’s why I play off 9”, is talking rubbish. Garcia couldn’t putt at one stage, but was still making cuts.
  4. Wow. Not nice to have the nerve damage but I guess it’s great that it wasn’t way worse. Oakley make some fantastic stuff.
  5. thats really scary and hope that you’re ok now. I didn’t have anything this bad, but got hit in the face by a brake lever in a motorbike crash, and the doctor again said that the goggles saved my eye. They were a pair of Oakleys and I’ve worn their sunglasses ever since.
  6. People who moan about jacked lofts need to worry less about these things! These traditionalists presumably still use wooden headed drivers, and don’t own a car and have a horse instead!
  7. They definitely have appeal. I recently had a set of Apex. Loved the looks, liked the feel and the forgiveness was great. The whole loft/distance debate will always polarise, but I found that the lofts kept the flight/height under control, and distance was only 5 yds longer than my srixons, so certainly no madness. the flyer subject keeps coming up in these threads, but here’s my take. I never saw a flyer from a fairway, and a well struck shot flew the predicated distance. However as some have alluded to, the spin is generally low and it therefore doesn’t seem to take much
  8. Here’s mine. As you can probably see, there are a few old favourites in here, notably the 3 wood which has been a reliable servant for over 10 years. I love tinkering with clubs, and to be honest am amazed that the newest club is probably 3 years old! Wedges might change soon......
  9. Yep. Just got off the phone from doing exactly this. loved my srixon z765 irons which I had from first release and played very well with. Sold them when I got injured a few months ago, figuring that I’d need more forgiveness and graphite shaft to help my body, and bought callaway cf16 with recoil. 2 games in and although the apex are nice, just don’t like them anywhere near as much as the srixon. so apex’s have been sold and I managed to track down my old set, called them and negotiated a price to buy them back. They arrive tomorrow. thankfully during t
  10. With two 6 irons, just so you can tell everyone how strong the lofts are on modern irons!
  11. Thanks all. I’ll swap it without worry!
  12. Hi all. I’ve just bought a superstroke pistol gt tour grip and have a 50g countercore weight on the way. I want to experiment with the weight in and out, but have heard a few people say that the foam on the weight can roll up when taking the weight in and out. So does anyone have any tips that might allow me to take the weight in and out a few times? I wondered if you could maybe wrap the foam in tape to stop the foam snagging while I’m experimenting, or would that not work? any tips welcome. Thanks
  13. so is the conclusion that the arrangement of the eggs should be determined by how far you’re going to be moving the eggs?
