  1. I have a s12 white that I used once and would sell if interested. Send me a PM
  2. I bought this watch last month for over $200 I used it 1 time and could not get comfortable wearing it while playing so would like to sell it. $150 shipped priority mail to the USA.
  3. My Rankings of CC in the area 1. Victory Ranch 2. Promontory Nicklaus 3. Glenwild 4. Promontory Dye 5. Park Meadows 6. Tuhaye 7. Red Ledges (only one on the list I have not played) 8. Jeremy Ranch
  4. So I bought some new shafts for my i500 and I am going to just replace my 8 iron first and hit some balls before doing the whole set. When I set the ferrule I noticed the huge amount of space in the hosel so I came to WRX to see what I could find...........I am not one to give up without a fight and I bought some red ferrules from Billy Bobs that are not collared. What I did was get some Brampton Epoxy PRO-FIX 5&10 Rapid Cure and some glass beads. This is a slow and tedious process as I will need to do one club at a time. Without the collared ferrule I use a good bit of epoxy and get the shaft and ferrule to sit all lined up with the hosel and give the excess that seeps out a quick wipe then hold in place to it sets. This is why I went with the quick cure so I held the head in place by hand for around 7-8 minutes. I will need to mix epoxy for 1 club at a time........Just set the 8 iron and going to give it a test tomorrow off the mat in the garage. I am only replacing the 4-U so 8 irons if I like the new shafts. I will report back if they dont hold but they should be fine.
  5. Good question, I have not played them but received these as partial payment for some work I did for a club last fall. And I have around 10-12 DZ other balls that I will be using this season so sold these ones. I am sure you can find a bunch of threads on the forums discusiing these for more info.
  6. Ya know this could be really painful, like really painful.
  7. I fly with my clubs quite a bit. I use a softside bag and stiff arm and have not had any issues. However I just took a trip last weekend to FL and when I unpacked my clubs this is what I found..........stiff arm did it's job and is worth every penny.
  8. I am a big fan...Very long for me off the driver for my 100mph swing speed. I suggest buying a dz for $20 and try them. But when the new balls come out I assume they will offer the buy 3 get 1 free deal which comes out to $22.50. So the deal for $20 a dz is not really that great if you plan on buying 3 dz.

However I recently discovered The Sagamore and wow what a course (especially in the Fall). Took the following pictures about 3 weeks ago when last visited. > > Hiland #6 > > > The Sagamore #1 > > > > > Love both of those tracks......My Mom & Step Dad live in Diamond Point in the summer and I play both of them when I visit. But if you ever get a chance to play Glens Falls CC it is awesome pure Adirondack golf. It is also a Donald Ross like The Sagamore. My Step Dad was a member for a while and recently gave up the membership for lack of playing and now he plays at Hiland.
  10. > @halliedog said: > > @"Chef Otto" said: > > > @halliedog said: > > > I concur with everything said above. That almost looks like aluminum oxide media, which is generally used to blast off really thick rust. You did an excellent job on the blasting and paintfill, just don't expect them to look too pretty after a round or 2. That finish will pick up dirt/chatter/smudges in a hurry. I'm actually surprised you were able to get the paintfill that precise with that kind of finish, so kudos on that! I have done some Ping ISIs before in that finish and it was impossible to get paint to stay where I wanted it, and cleanup took forever :). > > > > > > Once again though, not bashing. Your technique was awesome for a first timer, just do this next time and go over again with glass beads to get a better, longer lasting result. Enjoy your time in FLA! > > > > Thanks and no offense taken at all......Yeah the paint fill was painful. I did not think it would work but I bought some squeeze bottles with small application needles and thinned the paint out with some acetone. You could not really wipe off any excess at all. I wish I had time to redo them now knowing I did not use real glass beads but I already installed the shafts and do not have time to start the process over. If these were going to be my main gamers here at home I would have to do this but I will only play these 2-4 rounds a year. I guess since I will be flying down with these in a travel bag this year and was planning on flying home with the set of i3's I have down there now I could bring these home as well this year and redo them if they look like garbage after 3-4 rounds. > > > > So in the future could I just do this in one step with the glass beads and remove paint fill and refurbish the heads ? > > You really wouldn't need to pull the shafts to redo them, although it is much more convenient. > > As to using glass beads only that would depend on the original finish condition and what you are looking for in the finished product. I usually like to start with aluminum oxide over the entire head to help remove and blend minor dings/chatter, then tape off the scoring lines with duct tape, and go over the rest with the glass beads until I get the finish I'm looking for. Doing it this way gives a nice contrast to the scoring area and reduces any chances of glare, along with the rougher face adding a little extra spin. Thanks for the info, those look great.......I have 2 sets of the isi Nickel in my collection that I want to restore.........So are you using a blast cabinet? if you leave the shafts on wouldn't you then have to leave the door to the cabinet open? I have a really good respirator but would not want to leave the door open especially with nickel heads. I have a bigger free standing cabinet but not big enough to place the whole club in. Anyway I am going to send you PM with some other questions.
  11. Took my son to see MAIDEN in Vegas last month......
  12. > @mfryegolf said: > can you post a picture of the ferrules installed? Here you go......I haven't had time to put the grips on but they look good. I don't know if I would have these on my daily players but for a retro bag I keep in FL and play a few times a year I like them.

So in the future could I just do this in one step with the glass beads and remove paint fill and refurbish the heads ?
