  1. I found that the CodeChaos shoes fit to size. In the past, I always bought Adidas shoes a half size larger.
  2. I now have been playing the XCaliber Rapid Taper 75g shafts in Maltby TS2 irons for roughly 6 months. It may sound like hyperbole, but it’s not. These clubs have revolutionized my iron game. The RT shafts allow me to play my mid irons with confidence. The ball just “launches” when I put a good smooth swing on it. There’s no need to “jump on it” or “force it” to create additional clubhead speed in order to get the ball up in the air. And, my carry distances are probably a half-club longer than my steel shafted (Nippon 950) Ping irons.
  3. I have the XCaliber Rapid Taper 75g regular flex shafts in Maltby TS2 iron heads. The higher ball flight and great performance from the shaft has significantly upgraded my iron game.
  4. Nothing more frustrating than playing behind someone who goes thru their entire routine for even 1-foot putts . . . . . placing the ball down so that the line on the ball is just right, then readjusting the ball since the line is not "perfect", then taking their usual 4 practice strokes . . . . . before actually putting the ball . . . . using their entire allotted time. No, a simple tap in is NOT always just a 5 or 10 second ordeal.
  5. In match play, you cannot simply walk up and tap in a short putt. You have to wait for your opponent to putt, otherwise you are playing out of turn. So, making someone putt out tap-in putts is not a 5 second ordeal. You have to mark your ball, wait for your opponent to putt until he is inside your ball, then re-mark your ball, before tapping it in.
  6. Nothing more frustrating than playing in a match that is slowed down by your opponent making you putt EVERYTHING out, including putts inside a foot.
  7. 1. City, State? Alexandria, VA 2. Handicap? 11.2 3. Current putter? Odyssey Versa #7 4. What Bettinardi Studio Stock putter do you want to test? Studio Stock 28 CTR 5. Are you able to test equipment on a golf course with one week of its receipt? Yes. I'm retired and play 4 days per week at my country club. 6. Do you agree to participate in an ongoing testing thread, posting reviews and photos? Yes, of course.
  8. Safe yourself the hassle of buying shoes that don't fit. Try them on before buying.
  9. I hit 4 irons long and over the green yesterday. I have the Xcaliber Rapid Taper 75g shafts in an R flex, with Maltby TS-2 heads. I swing my driver in the low 90s mph. Each of my “too far” flying irons were easy, smooth swings. Each iron flew at least a half a club longer than I expected. When I try to “jump” on an iron and hit it hard, I get out synch and put a crappy swing on it. I’d recommend the Xcaliber RT shafts for anyone looking for a higher ball flight or any of the other benefits of going to graphite.
  10. Don't be so hard on yourself. And, don't let your handicap affect your enjoyment of the game. Your handicap will adjust to your true playing potential as you get more rounds posted. And, please note, if you can go out onto a new golf course and shoot a score of 92, then you are certainly a better than average golfer.
  11. +1 on the Xcaliber Rapid Taper iron shafts
  12. I can't understand why people don't see this simple, straightforward solution.
