  1. I'm with you with respect to the 790s being GI clubs, but, they've always looked sharp and sleek. In my opinion these look off. Again...I bought both Gen1 and Gen2 P790s brand new...and they were great irons. I just think TM missed the mark with Gen3...especially at this price-point...and competing OEM's releases and designs.
  2. The analogy is specific to the bubbled-out chrome portion of the back. It's not sharp...it's not sleek...it looks nothing like Gen1 or Gen2 (both of which had very sharp lines). The bubbled-out chrome portion of the back looks exactly as I described...like a Crown Vic bumper on a Ferrari.
  3. You're not the only one. I was hoping the bubbled-out chrome middle section was specific to the 2-iron. P790s have always had very sharp and sleek lines and edges. Heck...look at how sharp the lines are on the rest of DJs irons. The Gen3 P790 looks like someone tried to put a Crown Victoria bumper on a Ferrari.
  4. Should I tell him that if he bought the AD DI from TM his shaft is already been tipped 1" ? Or, should I just let him go down the never ending shaft rathole?
  5. Not a metallic tink off the face Not a carbon feel off the face Not a dull muted feel off the face Not a Sasquatch offensive clank off the face Just a straight-up delightful wooden baseball bat thwack...that's darn near addictive. GLWS.
  6. Honestly, this would be a pretty good duo if Bryson could feed off of Reed's stone cold "I'm gonna beat your a**" attitude.
  7. It is serious money to some folks. But...is it serious money to him? Maybe...maybe not. Kind of the whole point of free agency. You're not locked into anything and can play whatever works and feels best.
  8. Several on here have said variations of this, and it's completely false. Bryson has the cash to be a free agent...much like several others...and experiment with all OEMs until he finds something that meets his needs. Most on here are too busy bashing the dude to realize that this very well may be his point. Either manufacture something that meets his standards (unrealistic or not)...or...free agency is on the horizon. Also...to be clear...he's a very hard dude to root for. But let's not pretend he didn't know exactly what he was doing
  9. After the P770 I was hoping for more out of the P790. Maybe I'm the only one, but the bubbled-out chrome section just looks off. I was geared-up and ready to pre-order...but either these will have to grow on me...or they will be an altogether pass. I owned bought Gen1 and Gen2 and both looked better to me than Gen3.
  10. So...an all chrome updated version of the SpeedBlade. A big old bag of meh if this is the updated P790. Give me the old P790 as opposed to a chromed out SpeedBlade.
  11. 1. Every ball in the new box will have a cut in the cover...even if they've never been hit 2. You will lose 20 yards per club because it spins more than a Wilson Duo 3. The next iteration of the 4-piece ball will be released 2 weeks after you buy the 3.2 4. It only costed me $210 to post in this thread b/c I bought a bunch of other stuff 5. You'll immediately need a new name for it b/c decimals are hard 6. A deep sense of guilt will consume you b/c there are other DTC ball manufacturers that are eleventy billion times better than Kirkland What did I mi
  12. @TaylorMade Golf Thanks for addressing the approximate release date. How many more sleeps until P790 pics are released?
  13. I used to read Word Up magazine. Salt N Pepa and Heavy D up in the limousine.
  14. The Modus 120 Stiff is a lighter version of a True Temper DG R300. The EI profiles of these two shafts are almost identical. Modus 120 is very polarizing. Either folks love it...or they hate it. There's no in-between. I can't stand it b/c I'll hit 2-3 good shots...and I'll lose my swing and who knows where the next ball will go. On the other hand...put some C-Tapers or Modus 130s in my hands and I can tell you exactly what the ball is about to do.
  15. A Sharpie line on the ball can work wonders for tee box alignment. Use the Sharpie like you would use alignment sticks on the range. Line feet up up with imaginary line parallel (train tracks) to target.
  16. I found this in my garage full of golf equipment. This is the USK 60" shaft from a AIM 1 putter. PM me your shipping address and if you want it...you can have it for the cost of shipping.
  17. Don't waste your money buying the same US Kids putter in a different size. You can install a 1.5" shaft extension for less than $10. Here are the tools to get the job done (extension + epoxy): https://www.golfworks.com/shaft-extensions/c/2555/ Or...you can take the putter to a local club-builder and have the putter extended for around $15 or so. Then...pick out her favorite grip...and she has a new putter...that she's already good with.
  18. There's no right answer here b/c each player will appreciate the short game (the game within the game) differently. Some don't really give a crap what wedges they play. Others would be browsing eBay and WRX, searching for sharp grooves every day if they could. That said...mine have been in Miura Milled Tour Wedges since around 5-6 YO. They really needed to experience that forged butter feel of placing it back in their stance...and zipping a spinner up for a one hop and stop. It's really the only way they could manage to 1-putt for Double Bogey. In all ser
  19. What part of the following isn't resonating here? "full price offers take precedence" If you didn't exchange funds, there was no deal. It doesn't even sound like you had his PayPal address. So, in the time you were PM'ing back and forth, trying to negotiate price, someone else came in with full price and bought the item. I've lost many deals on the BST from Buyers who say "I'll take it...what's your PayPal"...and suddenly disappear. The BST is like a flea market. First to pay gets the item. Again...money talks...and in t
  20. If you were ready to pay full boat, you should have offered full boat front the jump. You didn't. You snoozed. You negotiated. Time kills all deals....and in the time you used to negotiate, someone beat you to the punch. Money talks. I've done hundreds of deals here on the BST. First to PayPal always gets the item.
  21. In the BST, first to send PayPal gets the item. Always. Nothing else matters. You snoozed...you lost...learn from it and move on.
  22. I'd like to hear zero. One max, please.
