  1. I played my first full round with the exp and I am very impressed. Driver Feel- The ball feels light, meaning the fees back is not as clear as the Pro V or VX. It definitely softer compression ball but also feels different than AVX, as for me AVX feels it stays on the face longer giving it heavier feel on impact, this ball feels light as the very little feed back. Driver Distance- I think it is very long- I had a one of the longest driver on a 359 yard dog leg right hole, this ball was just in front of the green. It has low driver spin with higher traj than AVX but I think it tad lower than V1 or VX. Irons distance- Longer than V1 and VX and I think on miss hits because of its softer compression the ball flies more on thin shots. Wedges - distance is comparable and predictable but when I delofted my wedges I was able to squeeze extra 10 yards or more out of the shot. Spin- the ball spins well, much better than AVX- I think it may be more spinny than V1 of open face shots and about the same on square face shots. Little delicate shot were really controllable and stop quickly. Putter- With Spider X it felt soft I think people who like soft thud will like this ball others who like little click will not like this. Anyways without what to expect, had 4 birds and shot 1 under par today with the ball Durability- Normal ware but on thin shots I saw a mark on the ball, I think the cover is definitely grabby and different, like Srixon spin skin or Bridgestone outter layer clear cot for spin - definitely different from one you find on V1 or VX My Driver SS- 116 to 118 with normal swing Driver Model used- TS4 Irons- Hogans FT Blacks Wedges- Nike Engage Putter Spider X Verdict: Good ball, soft and long- responsive on shot game shots- for $39 I think this might take back the market share lost to Chrome soft- I really believe that Titlelist engineers came together to attack that very issue with failed attempt with Truesoft- EXP 01 with little more refinement will be a problem for Callaway
  2. I played 60, 56 and 52, they don’t make 54 now because in Japan 4 is unlucky number- but coming specifically for US market. I test wedges on course, to see how it reacts on certain shots. Full shots, its spins bit more than Vokeys in 60 degree but not as much as the hi toe. It has very fat upper toe section = high CG and great spin. Full shots hit and spin back to 5 to 10 foot depending on how fast low or high you hit it. 30 to 40 yards open face shots are hop stop. I was very surprised on how great it performed with no major weakness. Love this thing
  3. I was looking for a wedge for 2019 and decided to try all the wedges avail for 2019 and than comw to a conclusion. Told myself to have open mind and not gravitate towards certain brands that I have played in the past. So began with Vokeys to Ping glide stealth 2.0, great spin but lacked forgiveness on certain lies, played M grind and SS grind. I also tried the RTX 4- 2 dots and had great spin and the V sole cut through the turf really nice. Than to High Toe and PM 2.0- High toe was great as a 60 but for 56 and lower, did do a good job and don’t know why but PM grind 2.0 felt slightly shorter in length, Those were great wedges but I think its design is more for the open shot and around the greens- these excelled from the bunkers and deep stuff. It went on for 2 months and lastly I tried the Honma TW-W 2019. Did really care for it to be honest but when I picked it up, some felt very solid, the weight, the way the bounce felt off the turf, the lool from address the shaft Modus tour 125 S, I didn’t have any practice sessions, went straight to the course. Oh man these feel solid and the level of forgiveness on full shots, the interaction through the turf is money. Hi CG location really enhance spin on high lofted wedges Try these wedges- you will not regret!
  4. Take her to the hardest course, where she will loose balls and after balls and 5 putt after putts - she will say I hate this game and you will save lots of $$
  5. epic flash sz - beast off the tee ans so easy to launch of the turf, longest and straightest.
  6. That must be the best looking irons ever in chrome!
  7. my Tour edge pro ltd 3 fairway wood - nothing beats it, I think it is the best three wood ever
  8. Played two rounds with the Wilson professional white color. Cover- it is grippy and held up very well, hit a tree and it was fine but after second round it stated to absorb colora from the greem chem that the course spray on grass. Feel- Soft feel but not Duo U, which for me almost hated it because it was too soft. Off driver- good feel with less spin, not the longest but similar to chormw soft in driver distance. but definitely lower flight than other harder balls Irons- on point, compresses really well and went the distance even on slight miss hits- great feel offf the irons shots Full Wedges- spin was good but not the spiniest ball/ if you spin the ball too much with wedges this would be a good ball- hit hop stop. Short chips- check, stop release about yard more than pro v or z star Putter- using scotty cam newport 2 and felt soft much softer than pro v brodgestone or srixon z start. Conclusion- it is a ball that does the job really well but not exceptional in any criteria that you expect from tour ball, it kind of feel like an older brother of chorm soft as it does everything that chrome soft does but in a more predictable way. But feel itself is addicting and if you like chrome soft, I think this is much better option, especially for its price beinf $35 per dozen. Wilson is making right steps in all departments especially this ball will be ideal ball for those who seek soft tour level ball with less price tag, if this ball was below $29.99- I think I would no 1 soft feeling urathane ball in the market.
  9. Thanks guys tried both UDI 2 iron with tour issue DG X100 and U85 with recoil F5 I think forgiveness wise U85 was money, high and straight great soft feel for a hollow head pleasantly suprised, it was 245 all day, really tight dispersion. UDI- I think is the best looking at set up, felt powerful, it almost felt like it exploded off the face and definitely shape the shot more, especially for hitting low shots, and even with the steel shaft it was longer than U85 by 10 yards or so. From the fairway- both are good but U85 was definitely with recoil shaft was easier to hit higher and landed softer for those long second shots into the green. From the Rough- I think this is where the main difference was found- from the light rough, U85 was really good, but UDI not so much, I didn’t even attempt from semi deep. I think for my game I am going to go with -UDI cause I have Hogan VKTR hybrid at 20 thats just magic out of the light rough. UDI with steel shaft was just money off the tee and tight holes and I like hitting various trajectory with it, but U85 was so forgiving and straight
  10. Tried the Hi toe, both grind but I think the PM grind is most forgiving and versatile, but Hi toe was great especially out of the bunkers it was like automatic with in six feet to the hole, I like hitting low hold up shots with my wedges for control, so was fine with PM, like the hi toe but love the PM
  11. You know I tried it when the all the hype was there, but did not like the look and it just felt different in my hand, little heavier than other wedges. But past 2 weeks I have been using it cause, I lost my 60 and it was in my back bag, and was playing club comp. Went out early for two hours to get use to it and man, I think my chipping and short game is just so good. Flop shots and hooded low running shots, akward 30 feet hit and stop and the bunker shots, I don’t know if anything does better and I don’t know if it will ever come out of the bag. Shot two under par for the comp, largely because I was getting up and down from eveywhere and making pars, where bogey looked like a good score.. Do anyone think the same, still think it is the best lob wedge on the market still?

  13. Wow the numbers look good! I think I need to go flash sub zero for 19’
  14. For real? How is that possible? Epic SZ is absolutely longest driver that I have ever hiy
  15. Nike wedges, those were awesome, I think if you played Nike dual sole, you would like SM7 L grind or M, also Ping TS glide stealth, for 54 I would try callway way MD 4 wide, Awesome from the bunkers
