  1. FWIW, I sold about 7 items at once and arranged a pickup from USPS, 6/7 immediately showed up in the system...the 7th was “shipping label created awaiting pickup” until it showed up in destination post office and went out for delivery. I had items go all over the country, a few to Hawaii even, the one that was supposed to travel 3hrs was the one that took the longest and got 1 scan on the way, go figure. USPS hasn’t been the greatest, I would give it at least a week.
  2. This. If he has done it before, and no one told him different why would you expect any different behavior. Not condoning it, just pointing out that a teachable moment only comes once in a while. And being red hot isn’t a good time to dole it out.
  3. MCC+4 bottom hand grip is too mushy on midsize for me.
  4. I think it is hard to “learn” his moves if you have already been playing for a while. I think his daughters swing is the result of his work with her from the beginning, and it works for her. There are some great nuggets of wisdom he offers up from time to time that I think translates very well to all swings;ie intent of swing, swinging through the ball, “releasing” the club, etc. To me it is fundamental, not earth shattering knowledge, but it is a similar concept in a more easily digestible description for me.
  5. I agree, they feel very similar new. Then I think TV’s get slightly firmer. The SS feel soft without feeling “gummy”.
  6. 1. City, State? Houston, TX 2. Handicap? 16.5 3. Current driver shaft? Accra TZ6 CB M4 4. Current iron shafts? Nippon Modus 125s 5. What Regio Formula Plus shaft do you want to test?MB+ 6. Are you able to test equipment on a golf course with one week of its receipt? Yes 7. Do you agree to participate in an ongoing testing thread, posting reviews and photos? Yes
  7. Sometimes I’ll do green tea(cold brewed) with an electrolyte tablet on the course. Just enough caffeine to keep me alert, but not as much as coffee. and I will do green tea 3 times a week as the afternoon pick me up. BUT I also do a cold brew coffee every morning.
  8. USPS is the worst( in some areas). Your situation is nuanced and frustrating, I would say give it the weekend. You’d be surprised the magic that occurs at USPS over a weekend.
  9. I think I am in your camp, WS’s caddie contradicts himself in his statement. Why would you figure out pin location last? They know the pin location everyday, they know the green depth and width, and they know all the flat/sloping/tricky spots on each green. Range the flag, all your calcs fall out from there. I don’t care if they use them or not, just come up with a better reason than “it might be a yard off”.
  10. The full retail for each component I think is a known, that’s just what they do. As stated above the grip price is in line, the Puring is over priced, and the shafts are wayyyyy over priced. You should order them through DD and invest in a swingweight scale and some lead tape....if you are particular about that sort of thing. If not, take the money and invest in other parts of your game. I think others have already mentioned, you have some unique options but nothing you can’t order much more cheaply. you paid for the fitting, not for a commitment to buy clubs, take the data and experience
  11. I don’t. I was trying to piece together components before the build. But point taken, and sage advice. Thank you.
  12. Does anyone know what the bottom of bore to ground measurement is for the Miura CB 1008’s? I’m trying to find a set of pulls and want to make sure I get a set of appropriate lengths for my desired build specs. thank you.
  13. I feel like this is all known information about Evnroll putters. I guess I have to disclaim that I roll one, but they are what they are. It’s better with a softer ball, but only marginally. I got used to it. Performance out weights sound for me.
  14. 1.5” cost me 27yds. Verified with Trackman at my recent fitting. Full disclosure, shorter shaft was not an ideal fit, so that was definitely a factor. I went longer, softer in flex a tiny bit, and “counterbalanced” for my gain in yards with better dispersion. *I also hit one off the planet today with that longer shaft, so with distance comes an outside chance I block one to nowhere. I truly believe that would have just been a weak, right drive if it were shorter. So grains of salt.
  15. Adding weight helped me, I felt the overall club balance didn’t suit me before I did. I had both the AD IZ and the Smoke Yellow, which I believe have higher balance points. I swapped out the heavy weight from Speedzone and put it in the Extreme. Launch did increase a little bit, but was worth it for me, I felt I could really feel the head and get after my drives. The SZ heads have a lot of pop, I just had to take a shot in the dark and the shafts I picked didn’t ultimately fit me the best.
  16. TXG has been on a Srixon kick as of late, maybe a while, and that has a lot to do with the product and I am going to guess the business relationship. Between Mizuno and Srixon they seem to get a lot of love and cooperation for “what if” type content. I agree with almost everyone’s comments that the segment is razor close in looks, feel, and performance. In my recent fit, the two irons I hit were basically the same in performance.....and unfortunately in price.
  17. I have a Dynaflex, I use it as often as I get bored. Keep it on the desk and whirl it up when I have to listen in on meetings or feel inclined. I don’t follow any routine, but figure something is better than nothing.
  18. The switch to 2 off set wedges(52/58) was the best move I made. Simplified all my short game shots, limited variety of shots(good for me), and made it easier to accept not swinging 100% . how I get off the tee has more effect on my score, I agree with that sentiment.
  19. I thought I heard he has 7 sponsor exemptions for this season, not sure if that includes the current one. Whatever the number he needs top 5’s, not top 20’s. I’m curious what the strategy is for him, would he settle for earning his way through the KFT or is he going to continue working every angle to shortcut to the Tour? I don’t mean it as a negative, I just don’t know enough about him. game looks very good, but I assume it is tough without competitive reps at all the tour venues, maybe he can catch lighting in one of his starts.
  20. Major sports as a whole have lost more and more touch with their respective fan bases, and as a result I feel fans are losing more and more interest. It becomes entertainment, which is plenty, varied, and evolving.
  21. @kander7what about the 1007 blade length? Do you happen to know how they might compare to some more recent offerings?
