  1. I used the speeder HB 8.8 forever and switched to atmos blue. I feel like atmos is a hair stouter but it could also me just getting older. Speeded felt a little crisper, the atmos has a rather dull feel but it does load and unload. When I put a good swing on it the atmos flat out works, I got rid of speeder so can’t compare side by side any more.
  2. Thanks for the great input, I tried to order it but my shop says it’s not in Titleist available options just yet, but it’s already in their 2021 custom book online so should be soon. I’m really excited to see what velacore can do in person, as when I hit the blue I had the same feeling. Felt loose but no pop. I am liking the sound of a mid/high lowish spin smooth shaft.
  3. Thanks! I only hit a Ventus blue once before and have never been able to hit red. The ad di and 8* head just feels weird to me, and my fitting was just one session like most of us. Looking to make an educated guess and know that butt stiff shafts help me feel more in control, as the tensei white 9* gave me good numbers but I didn’t feel like I could control it. Kinda from reading the boards it seems like the blue Ventus is more similar to white, and the red is more similar to a tensei blue but tighter. Seems like a good fit on paper
  4. I'm looking strongly at a ventus, but can't hit them. Based on chatting with Knudson I am leaning towards the Ventus red for a TItleist TSi2 head. I am currently playing a TSi3 8* with a DI 6S but it just feels all over the place. I thought I really liked the TSi3 head, but realized I have gravitated more towards the modern shapes. Would the red be a step firmer in the handle compared to DI? I haven't had luck with tensei white due to soft handle, but have really good luck with Tensei blue... seems like Ventus red is closer to tensei blue than the ventus blue, which is supposed to have th
  5. I cannot comment about CC members getting priority, I think it’s more of a factor of 6-8 putters for the whole world each weds. Monday is moto, they are not tour sticks. Weds is the tour sticks. I snagged one a couple months ago and I am not a CC member, signed signed in and got lucky. Like it was said earlier by me and someone else, you literally have seconds. You can’t even browse to see each putter, literally the page loads and you click buy. You also have to completely check out, the cart isn’t reserved.
  6. Gallery releases is what you are referring to, they release MOTO’s on Monday and Gallery Releases on weds. Never gone after a MOTO, but gallery is approximately 8:30 PST. Good luck! You have literally seconds to snag a Gallery Release, minimum price is $2500-3000.
  7. I have played the atmos blue 8S and have hit a DI 75S but also have an 85S I haven’t hit yet. The 75S DI was super easy to hit compared to atmos for me, and I was long time user of atmos. It didn’t feel loose at all to me, just easier to flight up or down. It definitely wants to launch higher than atmos but it got cold here and snowed so haven’t been able to make the closer comparison in weight of the 85S to atmos 8 since they are both 88g. I got fit for DI in my driver and have been exploring it in woods and hybrid, mainly because it’s a blue profile that has a stable tip for me. Curious if
  8. I do not think Scotty would mind taking your money for multiple putters, but I can all but guarantee you will not have time. I got lucky once, and snagged a gallery release, but have literally only ever have been able to add the fastback to cart to decide not to buy it. I literally cannot even get a putter to add my cart you have to be that fast. BTW... adding to your cart does not hold it either, you have to check out. I believe they all sell out in minutes. Side note, there is usually 2 of each model released on any given weds, I am not clear as to if the clone is sold in the gallery f
  9. Same here, I snagged it up thinking it would be the only way to get the toe hang in a solid steel face. Even sold a tour 5W because I justified saving so much money for the same putter. The branding is killing me now, specifically the signature. Looks like a wheaties box
  10. My JT uses the same weights as a Newport, as did the 5W both tour and non tour versions I have had, I am fairly confident this will have the usual style wide base weights.
  11. Impossible to tell with that pic, but it is the newer graphics. Not sure those have been faked yet, but if it’s on eBay you never know.
  12. my club just started starting greyson heavily, used to be mostly PM... I think the greyson is a as good as PM but fits slimmer. I do think greyson is pretty expensive for what it is though, at least in their outewear dept. The polos at my shop are same price as PM and are at least as good or better, but I go more and more for them based on fit, The outerweare is hit or miss, some of their stuff is priced OK, but there was a plain fleece jacket for like $225? I got a greyson pullover from Pinehurst before I knew about the brand and the stitching on the hem is coming undone... I hope just b

  15. their polos in large are slimmer than large in polo or Millar. Their outerwear is pretty slim too, I actually bought a couple sweaters in XL instead of usual large because it felt better to be a hair loose than skin tight. Their sleeves seem short fyi, certainly on par with Millar
  16. I echo matching putter to the stroke, although I get that you fell in love with the Newport for sure. I think the only answer is lessons honestly if you’re serious about sticking with it. Obviously bad days on the greens can always happen, and that feeling you get when you miss the sweet spot is always nasty feeling in a blade... that’s what makes the pure strikes rewarding. I got fit one day and the toe hang arcing stroke putters are my best fit, makes blades easy to find but mallets not so much. We all have our issues so to speak, but I honestly and sincerely believe if you care about score
  17. Yeah that could be, just staying that Titleist official chart says for every half inch you adjust their drivers by 2g up or down. Not trying to say you were wrong, I realized after I wrote the post how it could have been misconstrued. The fitter even said for every half inch you upped the weight 2g, I agree the calculation isn’t jiving with the hard swing weight math.
  18. That is ideally what I need to do, but here I can only text u series with stock hzrdus which flat out doesn’t work for me, nor do I like it. I am tempted to just pull the trigger on one with a tensei blue and reshaft it with a DI driving iron worst case... only out $25 over custom order at that rate. Almost ordered a 510 with DI hybrid 85 but that’s $400, which is in insane for a club I won’t hit that much. Really wish the T200 4i worked but we are where we are, really hoping to get a crack at hitting a 23* hybrid to really exhaust all options. Existing 21* might be the answer afterall, but t
  19. When I was fit for my driver, it was 1/2 short to play 45” and we installed the red +2g weight to equalize for shorter length. My head pro did the same, that matches what Titleist recommends on their weight chart at the end of the custom options brochure. Not sure I would ever consider 5 grams extra weight, so that calculation seems off to me.
  20. I got some kjus on 40% from my club when they cleared their stock a few years ago. Liked it so much, I immediately ordered the Pro suit at full price. It's a solid investment, and you don't even notice you're wearing it. I can't say enough good things about it, often wear a rentention jacket in the 50's and have a Dorian for cold windy days.
  21. If this isn't the most logical thing I have heard today, I don't know what is. All the marketing around tungsten still can't replace good ole loft. I find the flight of my 5i and my 4i to be complete opposites honestly, and that makes sense that spin and launch would be that of 3 iron or even 2 iron in the my modern 4i.
  22. And the 23* is a better replacement for the 21* iron you all think? My 5 iron is 24*. I always hit the ball crummy in the sim when I try to test this and no one has a 23* to test actually. I tend to only do well when Titleist comes to town and we hit outside.
  23. Yup, every other year is Select then Futura, or at least has been for some time now. Decent theory from previous poster on headcover being left over. It never matched the putter really. I also thought the pistelero grip was terrible but i know grips are pretty personal. The new blacked out pistolini plus is sleek looking
  24. I’ve narrowed it down to either my Titleist TS2 21* or picking up a u510 22* with same shaft as hybrid. What do you all likely think I would see as a difference between the two? Length is actually almost identical and loft is similar. Trying to eliminate the mega long flushed shot I would occasionally see with my hybrid, but also need something easy to swing so the ball goes somewhere close to where it’s supposed to every time. Worried I have to give the nod to the hybrid for that, but wanted your all’s thoughts since u510 is almost a hybrid anyway.
  25. I agree completely. I think the redwood is a 350g head, but mine is a different length now than my SC’s so hard to tell. Other than the sole graphics the Redweed Anser is a clean looking anser style to rival any SC Newport for looks. Feel is also very solid and soft on the sweet spot.
