  1. My guess is B. Visually looks like A, so I'll go with B since TaylorMade has wanted to prove that how far the paint goes down from the crown can affect how the face looks and hide any additional bulge/roll from Twist face.
  2. Here's a fun thread. Ignoring the absurdly overpriced Scotty Cameron headcovers, what are some of the coolest putter headcovers you've seen for either blade or mallet putters? It can include branded covers or from golf courses. For me, some of the coolest I've seen thus far are the Odyssey Drain, Odyssey Buckets, Odyssey Bombs, Odyssey No 3 Jacks, TaylorMade Delivery Time (pizza), TaylorMade Half & Half (Arnold Palmer drink), and the headcovers from Pacific Dunes (with dolphins).
  3. The TV Cord BCT should technically have a little bit more vibration dampening than the Z Cord since I think the actual Tour Velvet compound is a bit softer and more shock absorbent. In actual use, I did find the TV cord to be less harsh than the Z cord, but it wasn't a huge difference in my opinion.
  4. I most prefer the old Tour Velvet Cords, before they went to the BCT (Brushed Cotton Technology) design. I even hoarded one set's worth of Titleist branded versions of the old TV cords. However, the BCT TV cords are still really good and my favorite of the current cord grips. They're not quite as durable as the old ones, but offer slightly more tack. Z cords are probably my second favorite. They're closer to the old TV cords, but can be pretty rough on the hands. I'm personally not a big fan of the MCC, since the lower rubber part can tend to get slick much quicker than the cord portion. Also
  5. Thanks a bunch! This was exactly the info I was looking for. A follow-up question is how the Dual Core version of the XM (DC TX) compares to the regular XM. Is it just simply a slightly lower version? And how does the DC TX compare to the regular DC?
  6. Are you referring to these two? I'm still a bit confused. I also noticed the Kuro Kage XM doesn't show up on Mitsubishi Rayon's website if you search their shafts, only if you directly click on the link from a Google search.https://www.mca-golf.com/products/xm-0https://www.mca-golf.com/products/silver-dual-core-tini
  7. Phew, coming back to this thread a few days short of 10 years from the day it started. I figured I'd add some more to this list now that a full decade has passed - and it's become more of a comprehensive list of blades, rather than a short list of best blades. If I had to choose a shorter list of the best blade irons (that I've also been able to have a good amount of experience with hitting), I think I'd say Miura MB-001, Mizuno MP 14, Mizuno MP 33, Nike VR TW, Taylormade MB TP, and Titleist 681.

  8. I've tried doing some research on the Kuro Kage Proto TiNi 2013 shaft, but there isn't a lot of literature out there on it. I was fit in 2014 by Club Champion for the 70X version of the KK Proto shaft (before TiNi was added to other Kuro Kage shafts) in a 10.5-11* driver head. As far as I understand, it's a relatively rare and exclusive shaft, which seemed cool at first but honestly just makes it harder to find replacements. I believe it's much closer to the Kuro Kage Black profile with more of a mid launch, mid/low spin as compared to the ubiquitous low launch/low spin Kuro Kage Silver, whic

  16. This is really cool... thanks Fairway Jockey! [attachment=2910492:Iron Shaft Specs.jpg]
  17. I already "like" Miura on Facebook and have Miura irons. Miura is awesome... I've been looking around for the right lob wedge, and I would love to try the 60 Y grind, 59 wedge series, and 55 wedge series. Thanks to Miura and GolfWRX!
  18. Merry Christmas Eve / Happy Holidays to everyone! I already got my little brother gifts for Christmas, but I would like to sell these 3 junior US Kids Golf sets so that I can buy him his first adult set for his birthday (early January). He’s been growing like crazy recently! That being said, I may be interested in some trades, but I mostly need the cash. I’m not super in-tune with junior club prices, so feel free to send reasonable offers or correct my prices by PM. I would do a significant discount for a package deal. Thanks!

  19. Hey, could you please talk about differences between the SLDR and Tour Jetspeed fairways in terms of head shape and launch characteristics? Is one deeper than the other? Higher launch? Spin?
  20. I've been using the original Odyssey Tank (#7 style head) for a while now, and it's been awesome for keeping my hands quiet and the putterhead more stable. I'm a big believer in counterbalanced putters now. Now that the "technology" has advanced and the different amounts of weighting refined, I'm curious whether there are better putters out there. I haven't had a chance to try out many of the new Tank Cruisers, TaylorMade Spiders, Scotty Dual Balances, etc... I'm just wondering what your favorite counterbalanced putter is, and how does it compare to others you've tried?
  21. Chill guys... he's just taking a break, which is actually a good idea when transitioning from high school to college. He could easily just get a fresh start with a new set of clubs come springtime next year. To the OP, great playing and sorry to hear you didn't make states. At least you can be proud of how you and your team played. After you get your education, you can still just go out and school people on the course while networking for whatever company you decide to work for!
