  1. Hey all, Have a brand new Champion’s Choice Newport 2 Buttonback 34” new in the plastic, only taken out of the headcover to photograph. Asking $1000. Thanks for looking!
  2. Bit of a funny question I know but I just like these ray-bans he was wearing and they must stick to his head decently if he’s got them on the back of his head. Any idea what they are? https://www.instagram.com/p/CSnUwC0DcET/?utm_medium=copy_link
  3. Hey all, I have a member here that in the last three weeks consecutive has broken his 5-7-8 SIM irons with Nippon Zelos 6 shafts in exactly the same place in the grip. Im here to ask if this has been a common break for anyone with this shaft? I’m sick of getting it repaired for the third time first off, and secondly I’m trying to see if this actually broke “in his swing” like he says it has or if he just has an anger management problem. Thanks for the help, much appreciated!
  4. Club is phenomenal... for me! For my launch conditions its the first club to dethrone my 2017 GBB SZ as something thats flat enough to help with a more right start line and it doesnt spin so little it falls out of the sky. I hit up on the ball around 3-4 degrees and my biggest issues had actually been a lack of spin and I tried to fix that by going to a higher spinning head like a normal speed or even the mavrik max from last year but ultimately the lie angle on those heads drove me nuts and they were just too draw biased. It won't fit everyone but I now understand why its so popular on tour, as a staff Callaway player i struggled mightily finding something I liked, but this has been excellent. Most accurate driver I have ever used by a mile. I don't think it will fit everyone obviously, but for what I do as I said above, it hit the mark in a way i've never seen before. The Max LS surprised me with its really low spin. The other two stock heads i'm not impressed with. Did not get a chance to try the triple diamond LS as I suspected it would be too low spin anyways. Lastly on a different note, now we just need to release the fairways, the stock fairways for any lower handicap player this year are terrible, total hook machines for me, hence why i've stuck with my Titleist fairways as you can see below. I also just realized I posted about the triple Diamond standard in the LS thread… Woops. Sorry I haven’t tried that one.
  5. I think he’s distanced himself a touch from Hodinkee (they’ve got a new CEO) and that gives him time for ventures like this, it looks really good so that’s pretty cool to see.
  6. Ton of offset. Look at them next to a JPX 921 Tour.
  7. Yep, as a staffer here it’s got me in blades or nothing else. That’s fine, I get how limited these are but it’s very interesting to me this year there’s really no equivalent to the “one step above MB” players category we see so many tour guys in, like p750, or my favorite iron I play now, JPX 921 tour. They’ve moved the retail lines considerably bigger and more focused on players-distance. The hollow Apex Tours are like rocket launchers, too hot for a lot of people, I do not need a 6 iron going 210. And I thought the X-forged CB fit into this and wow was I wrong when I saw them in person. They are big and clunky and strong-lofted. it’s ok I’m talking a small portion of the market here but Callaway right now remains the only company to conceal so many offerings as “tour-only”
  8. Hey there, like us all, tried an experiment here and I just didn’t like it all that much. I have a G425 LST 9° with stock Alta CB Slate 55-S (a surprisingly awesome shaft) that all I did to it was put a Lamkin TS1 Midsize Grip on it and I hit about 25-30 balls with it. As you can see from the pictures there are a couple tee marks on the face and I wouldn’t call it brand new but there are no marks anywhere else on the club and it’s just about new. Also has the headcover that’s never been used. Looking for $400 shipped, save yourself some money on a new 2021 head. Thank you, feel free to DM with any questions
  9. Thanks for this topic. I was expecting an off the shelf driver to be 45.5 without the arccos grip and I’m glad that’s the case.
  10. Good insight from Jonathan Wall this morning, “”That might sound counterintuitive,” Oates said. “But when Louis was swinging smooth, he never felt like he was flipping it. The only problem with the initial build was it launched about 1 degree lower with about 300 RPMs more spin when compared to his G400 game, which is always the baseline. With an additional 8 grams of weight in the butt end of the shaft, Ping’s Tour team was able to rectify the launch and spin issue by altering the internal weight setup, placing more glue towards the face. The extreme counter-balanced shaft also allowed for more glue to help tune the overall sound at impact.“
  11. most recently Ventus Red 6X in a G400 from what I can find. However, he puts his counterbalanced Switchgrips in everything. This whole thing just makes me want to try it. I swing a bit faster than Louis but recently a slightly more flexible shaft has made my timing 10x better and I was hitting the center more often.
  12. I posted in the thread at the top of the page but I wanted to post a topic as I found this to be a fascinating move here, I wanted to see what everyone thought and I also feel like this is a surprising move that’s been totally under-reported and wasn’t seen very much at all from any sources. Louis had Ping build him a G425 LST with the Alta CB Slate in STIFF as reported on the homepage but to my surprise he put it in play this weekend! Now on Ping’s website and they usually give out full specs and it looks like it’s untipped? That is completely wild if that’s the case. He’s hitting it fairly far and straight too, and Louis isn’t a little bunter out there hes at 113 mph according to the PGA tour website. I don’t know what to think except seeing him and Adam Scott in weaker, softer shafts is very interesting, I certainly felt like things were trending towards very very stiff, and not only is it weaker, it’s a STOCK shaft from Ping. What do all of you think? First from the website and secondly from Getty, if you look close you can see the text on the shaft in the first picture and one from today, Sunday where the entire shaft is very visible.
  13. Its oddly gone under the radar in equipment circles, no Tursky or Jwall reporting on it. Its one of the more interesting gear things I have seen in awhile. Guy is playing a driver he could've grabbed at Golf Galaxy.
