  1. I respectfully disagree with the dudes who told you to see a teaching pro. That makes little sense to me. If you told me you didn't like the way your car performs and you were thinking about buying a new one with more horsepower, I wouldn't tell you to go find a driving instructor to teach you how to accelerate or shift gears better. Maybe if you were a single digit and then suddenly couldn't hit your 4 or 5 iron, then yeah, a lesson might be a good idea. The biggest reason I disagree, though, is that most good teaching pros don't know Jack Squat about clubs and golf technology. I have k
  2. I love GolfWRX but I don't have a lot of time to post much anymore. However, a few days ago I got another masterpiece from Ken at Victory Custom Golf in S.C. and I just had to share it with all my fellow equipment junkies and TMAG groupies. It's a TaylorMade R1 TP with a special Master's edition Matrix 6X3 shaft. I was just expecting the white tie shaft but Ken asked me if I wanted this Master's special edition and I went for it. I'm glad I did because I am totally digging it. I've been playing an R11 with an UST-Mamiya ATTAS T2 in it and I love it. But I have this R11 5-wood with a XCO

Strangely enough they only do it when it snows though, i'm thinking the people who do it think that wintertime is a nice time to give a gift to golfers because we can't play. [/quote] Dude, I noticed that here too. I'm going to go out and bogart a bunch of them and send them back to my Arizona friends for... No, I'm not even going to wait for Christmas, I'll send them Easter presents this year, and they'll all b
  4. From the OP: Sorry, I haven't been on GolfWRX for a while, but I thought I'd clarify. First of all, I apologize for posting with such zeal and enthusiasm for this "revelation" I had in the Home Depot. I should have searched the forums to see if anyone else had posted something first. However, I've lived in Arizona for so many years, and I never saw them at my local store. In fact, I originally moved to ARIZONA so I could forget about snow, so I never thought about driveway markers for snow plows or anything else for snow plows. So, you see, when I was walking through a Home Depot in NEBR
  5. [quote name='Rule13.1' timestamp='1324416422' post='3967405'] I have a very nice Titleist staff bag that sits around collects dust. I will accept any offers. [/quote] I just posted it in the BST forum if anyone is interested in a mint condition Titleist staff bag. I only used it on the course for two rounds in a tournament one weekend. Otherwise, like I said, it sits around my office with a few oddball clubs in it, collecting dust.
  6. Titleist Staff Bag for sale. It's is in mint condition and only used once on the course one weekend for a tournament. Otherwise, it's been sitting in my office with a few old oddball clubs. It's about 4-5 years old, and I think the model number is the S73. The cuff measures 9.5 inches and 6-way velour lined dividers. It has a velour lined accessory pocket, a big apparel pocket in the front, two side pockets and two back/ ball pockets. It has a nice, big, foam-padded sling, with the 3-point sling suspension, and a thick rubber handle. It has the black vinyl and clear plastic rain cover.
  7. I bought some Tour Sticks in Scottsdale last year for $15 which wasn't a big deal, and they're a quality product. Yesterday, I was in a Home Depot in Nebraska and I saw a box of fiberglass "Reflective Rods" that they use to mark the edge of a driveway when there's deep snow. They looked like exactly the same thing and they only cost... wait for it... $1.99/each. I bought a couple so I could compare them side by side and they appear to be identical, except the reflective tape on my Tour Sticks is in the middle, where these HD sticks have it on one end. The dimensions are identical. I'm not
  8. Vinny, good for you. I used to play 690's and they're great sticks. I'm just curious though. What was your original reason for wanting to try this experiment? Did you want to lower your scores? Did you just want a better feel from your irons? Did you just not like the Pings? I don't understand why some people give a darn about what kind of clubs someone else, who they don't know and will probably never meet, decides to play. (I also don't understand why I spend so much time reading these "blades for high handicappers" threads when I could be doing something more productive like practicing my

  10. I remember when we HAD to play 2-irons. I grew up playing in the wind on the great plains of the US and I even played a 1-iron for years. Trust me, you should use your hybrid and work on hitting a low draw. You can also affect the trajectory quite a bit with different shafts. You might consider playing a steel hybrid shaft like the KBS Hybrid. I think you'd hit it farther than a 2-iron, especially on off-center hits, and it would be a lot easier to work the ball and control it.

In a perfect world, a 1.00 would be 100% of the energy transferred to the ball, which mea
  12. [quote name='odshot68' timestamp='1326247542' post='4061367'] anyone else have any experience or feedback with the 85 or 100 gram hybrid shaft? [/quote] I've been thinking about going to the ATTAS 100 in my 11 Rescue 3-hybrid. I love the 85, but I really like the feel of a heavier hybrid. I've been told that it kind of depends on how you want to swing a hybrid, or how you want the swing to feel. If you want it to feel more like a wood, then play the lighter shaft. If you want it to feel more like an iron, use the heavier one. I play the MC's with C-Tapers too, and they're 120 grams so
  13. I just had a FB conversation today with UST Mamiya that is kind of related to your question. They said it will affect swing weight and, obviously, it will lower the total weight of the shaft. I was thinking about trimming an inch off my driver, but I don't want to lose the weight, so I just choke down an inch on tighter driving holes. So that's an option if you don't want to mess with lead tape or hot melt. Here's a link to an article that UST posted on FB that talks about shaft length vs distance.
