  1. Came into a pair of Miura K-Grind wedges, but need to be reshafted (too long, too stiff for me). I'm looking for 2 shafts standard length, maybe on the lighter side (105-115g?), as I'm playing Project X 95 LZs in my irons. All Set - thanks everyone for the offers!
  2. Time to clear out space for new things, like more Honma gear! Couldn't get the photos in correct order. Thanks for looking. 1 - Nippon Modus 105 Tour Regular pulls (from Honma TW-X irons). No grips, tape intact. 7 shafts, pulled from 5-AW. Lengths are 2x35.5, 36, 36.5, 2x37, 37.5. .355 tip. $sold 2. King Cobra F8 Tour Length Driver with Evenflow Blue 6.0 - plays to 44.5", has 16g and 6g weights to adjust for shortened length, with original headcover (no wrench) - $old 3 - Bridgestone Airmuscle #3 Utility Iron with NV85 Green Stiff w/head
  3. Has anyone bought the MGI cart bag? I'm using a Sun Mountain 2.5 carry bag and it's an awful match for the Zip Navigator. A golf shop locally has the MGI bag and apparently, it's designed where the base of the bag fits perfectly into the base on the Zip series cart, so no twisting in place, no moving. I think it's about $220, has full length club dividers, lots of storage and a cooler compartment.
  4. I've played 5 rounds with mine and am quite fired up. I've spent more of my adult life playing sort of demanding, players-type clubs while never having elite clubhead speed. I was probably 103-105mph at my peak and am now 97-99 and declining. With the TW-X (and lighter Project X LZ 95's in 5.5), I seeing increased height, more acceleration thru the ball, and better misses. I'm finding these clubs to be easier, not harder, to hit out of the rough. Long irons are definitely easier to get airborne. I feel like I'm at least 1/2 club longer than the Apex/Apex pro's I came from. Yes, I know t
  5. Played with the TW-X's twice this weekend. One bad round (swing was off), one good one. My observations: - they sit nice behind the ball, not big at all. I don't notice much offset, certainly not enough to bother me - vs. PXG 0211/Elevate Tour Stiff, I'm finding the Honma's 8-15 yards longer and easier to hit - vs. Apex/Apex Pro 19 combos/C-Taper Lite Stiff, the Honma's seem to have comparable best distance, but I make good contact more often. And I'm more confident with the 5-6 irons than I am with the Apex - the lighter Project X LZ 95 stiff shaft seems to agre
  6. They're cheap enough to take a flier on. I debated buying the 747v's as well. But the TW x with the project X LZ 95's caught my eye. I may try 747v's as well.
  7. Not true. As I stated yesterday (I know that's now on page 2 of this thread), my Apex 7 iron is 31.5 and the 0211 is 31. Let's call it a draw. I hit the Apex 7 iron against a variety of PXG's, both heads and shafts. There was no PXG combination that was longer/tighter than the Apex. And I hit the PXG with a C Taper Lite stiff in it, which is the same shaft I have in the Apex. I'm not saying that for all golfers, PXG heads don't perform. I am saying that for me, with my crappy swing, a 31.5 Apex with a C-Taper Lite was slightly better than a 31 PXG 0311P and 0211 (note - this
  8. The best hits with the 0211 were on par with the best Apex hits during the fitting, but on average, the Apex performed better. A couple of comments: 1 - I will admit that I was biased toward buying because of the price and the opportunity to get PXGs cheap. So I was predisposed to hearing things that would lead to purchase. Note that I was being pushed toward the gen2 0311T or P, but the monitor did not support those performing any better than the 0211s 2 - the fitter guided me toward the best hits. I do not think this was a fitting in the sense of "let's do what's best fo
  9. I also just received my TW X's (with Project X LZ 95's 5.5). And like Hairpie, I've been a heavier stiff shaft guy, but at 57, there's no denying a loss in clubhead speed and distance, as well as late-round fatigue. Just got back from the range, comparing to my Apex/Apex Pro CF19 with C-Taper Lite Stiffs. Distance was fairly comparable. With my cheapie PRGR monitor, maybe the Honma's were 1-2 yards longer. The Honma's flew slightly higher to my eye. Feel was different. First, the clubs are significantly lighter than the Apex and felt easier to swing. The Apex ha
  10. Not true, at least for me. Lofts - 5i PXG 24 Apex 24 - 7i PXG 31 Apex 31.5 - PW PXG 45 Apex Pro 44. My Apex lofts are adjusted. Even if my Apex were at stock lofts, it's 23.5/30.5/44, so not nearly enough to create a 5-10 yard gap in yardage. And again, I acknowledge that maybe the Elevate Tour is a bad match for me. And further, why did I buy clubs that flew less far? Because the price was so good and I was stupid to think "maybe I just need to get used to them."
  11. I don't think you understood my point. The prior poster shared their experience with Apex-to-0211's. I'm saying "I didn't have this experience." I did not claim that PXG lies. I acknowledge the possibility of a bad shaft match.
  12. I did not have this experience. I have CF19 Apex/Pros with C Taper Lites. Went to a PXG fitting in Dec, bought the 0211's for $89 with Elevate Tours. When I got them, they were shorter than the Apex. They did not appear to offer any advantage over the Apex for me and my swing. So I returned them and lost the shipping and restocking fee. Another friend bought 0311 Gen2's with upgraded shafts. He also found he was losing 5-10 yards vs. his M2 irons. So he also sent his back. Maybe we both ended up with a bad shaft match, but these two experiences do not support "
  13. Reviving this old thread. I've been playing Apex/Apex Pro CF19's for 18 months. Did a PXG 0211/Elevate Tour experiment in Dec, but ended up sending them back - they were a solid 5-8 yards shorter than the Apex set. I've been increasing struggling with my long irons - not making solid contact and getting them really airborne. I think my swing speed has been dropping. My working theory on the PXGs is either they aren't that good or the Elevate Tour was a bad match. Bought a set of these on a whim and they will arrive in a few days. They are coming with Project X LZ 9
  14. Have a couple more rounds with the Z101's. Results are better (and my swing has been better). They are still 10-15 yards shorter than the same-numbered Apex, which I've adjusted to. The problem is when I get to 165-185 yards. I haven't really hit a good one with a Z101 5 iron off the grass yet. So when I'm further than I can hit a 6 iron (160-ish) and my 3 hybrid (190-200), I'm sort of stuck. This past weekend, I hit a couple of shots with the Z101's which felt absolutely wonderful. I don't recall getting that feeling with the Apex. Maybe they were just lucky swings. I also
  15. Thanks for taking a lot of time to respond, but it doesn’t appear that you responded to what was written. i never say the z101s are equal to or better than the Apex. I don’t think I say “I want to play smaller clubs.” I got fit and was put into the Apex. I got fit again by PXG and tried their clubs for a while. in any event, you didn’t understand my question. But thanks anyway.
