  1. You can’t adjust the length at the adapter (tip) end. You’ll have to start long, then remove the grip, butt trim and reinstall the grip. Or you can just try chocking down. EDIT: and I guess technically you can remove the adapter, trim and reinstall the adapter, but you’d be changing two variables at once, tip stiffness and length, and it sounds like you don’t want to change the tip stiffness. Why not find you a good fitter, and you can try all the variables.
  2. No, I'm saying save yourself the possibility of screwing up a shaft and get two extra adapters. Install them on your new shafts and test away. No pulling/reinstalling, etc. I was only suggesting 3rd party as they might be cheaper. You don't say what driver brand you are talking about. The Billy Bobs CMX line might save you a few dollars. But there are other sellers, like Golf Works. https://www.billybobsgolf.com/product-category/club-making/shaft-adaptors-sleeves/page/4/ https://www.golfworks.com/oem-adaptors/c/10027/
  3. Might be better and simply to buy some 3rd party adapters and install a new adapter on each shaft. No worry about screwing up a good shaft, no major tools needed, etc.
  4. I don’t know anything about that specific unit, but I would hate to have to remember to charge it before each round. I have a gps and Arccos Link, can’t tell you how many times I don’t think about charging until I’m on the way to the course. I keep spare batteries in my bag and forget about it.
  5. You guys are really making me want to try one of these shafts.
  6. Setup a search and alert on Ebay. One will turn up. Looks like at least one is available: https://www.ebay.com/itm/363529038248?mkevt=1&mkcid=1&mkrid=711-53200-19255-0&campid=5338722076&toolid=10001
  7. Push cart is the way to go. I cant imagine carrying a bag of clubs, and cooler with water and ice. That's a lot of weight in this heat. I do use the bag boy cooler bag with my cart: https://www.bagboy.com/collections/bag-boy/products/cooler-bag
  8. They certainly look nice!
  9. Does the head move at all when you install the shaft? Can you tap the butt end of the shaft down to see if the head & adapter move back. That is a big gap for the adapter to move without being very loose.
  10. Very likely acetate, it will flash like that:
  11. I bought 8 dowels from these guys https://www.bairdbrothers.com/Hickory-516-Dowel-Rod-DR516-P4277.aspx
  12. Newport 2 with a Newport shape says “fake”! And a terrible fake as well. Insert is not an insert (lines not deep). just compare it to this one: https://www.scottycameron.com/putters/select/newport-2/ That is an awful fake.
  13. Nike Air Hybrid II. https://www.nike.com/t/air-hybrid-golf-bag-lfW4ng
  14. The Walter Hagen shirts are actually pretty good. They hold up well in the wash, but I only buy them from the clearance rack (and now at their local outlet store). Never pay more that $15-20 a shirt. And if the balls get north of $30 a dozen, I'll look else where. I've only bought the 2 for $60 when I had a $10 off coupon.
