  1. I've played both the Tour V 120 and 125, and I can tell you the 125 is MUCH stiffer than the 120. Never tried a PX 6.5, but I hate the feel of 6.0 and I doubt there's much difference between them feel-wise. The Tour V is a great feeling shaft to me. I love the feel of DG and to me the Tour V has a similar feel.
  2. I'm not a snowflake, so no safe space needed. I may do some paradiddles, though. Just got a new electronic drum kit and it definitely brings out the creativity. I guess I might be a bit on edge right now. My grandfather just died a few days ago and one of my uncles is in the ICU on a ventilator with covid. Maybe I'm a little oversensitive at the moment.
  3. This drummer graduated college with a 4.0 GPA and keeps time very well, thank you.
  4. The guys at my club won't let anyone play through even if it's wide open ahead of them. It happens on not-busy weekdays all the time. They're just a-holes who think they're entitled, plain and simple.
  5. You wouldn't happen to be one of the guys not letting faster golfers play through, would you? Lol. You seem pretty riled up about us complaining about the lack of etiquette. Mind you, what you said is funny as hell, but I don't exactly get where you're coming from.
  6. I have a feeling that is all one piece, at least that's what it looks like from those two pics. I could be wrong though. Only way to find out is to heat it up with a torch and see if that threaded part will come out. Don't overheat it or you will discolor the metal. And wear thick leather work gloves so you don't burn the s#!t out of your hands. If that is just some sort of sleeve that is epoxied in the head, it will come out easy enough.
  7. If using taper-tip shafts, yes the shims will still be necessary. If using parallel-tip shafts, they won't be needed.
  8. I routinely play by myself riding a cart and usually get 18 holes done in about 2 hours 15 minutes. This is of course dependent on nobody being ahead of me and getting in my way. Otherwise, it might take 4+ hours to play because most of the d-bags at my country club won't let anyone play through. I tell ya, I've had enough of the entitled BS. Definitely not rejoining next year.
  9. Buy however many PXG ferrules you need from Billy Bob's. Insert a steel shaft into each ferrule and use a utility knife to cut off the collar where it meets the body of the ferrule. Use the separated collar to take up the space at the top of the hosel. Then use whatever ferrule you like to do the build. It's not rocket science.
  10. I bent a full set of Launcher HB Turbo irons with no problems. My L/L machine is a Golfsmith professional model and it clamped them just fine. I found the stock lie angle to be too upright and bent the full set at least a couple degrees flatter. I think I also adjusted the loft on a few of them. This is after I called Cleveland and they told me I didn't need to send them in to be adjusted.
  11. I got my mixer today, so FedEx still has a pretty good record with me. I'm not going to make a fuss about my package being one day late.
  12. Okay, it looks like the shipping label on my package got messed up and had to be replaced, so it has been delayed until Monday. This is really the first time I have had any issues with FedEx, and it's only one business day. The package is in Kansas City, so it will definitely make it to me Monday, which is certainly not a big deal. But, their near-perfect record for me has taken a minor hit. Still much better service than the USPS in my experience.
  13. I sold my i210's Monday morning, dropped them off at Walgreens around 9:30 AM for FedEx pickup, and they were delivered in South Carolina yesterday, only 3 days later and 100% on time. The only time in the last year + that I've had anything delayed with FedEx was over this past Labor Day weekend, and that is totally understandable. I ordered a powered live sound mixer Wednesday night. It was picked up by FedEx at 12 AM yesterday (Thursday) morning, and I have full confidence that it will be delivered tomorrow morning (Saturday), right on schedule. Maybe they just really like me?! I feel like I'm living in Bizarro World with all these FedEx horror stories. I'm just not seeing it on my end. What I am seeing is damn near everything I want to buy (golf or pro audio related) being out of stock until who knows when. That REALLY sucks.
  14. I wonder if this is a regional thing. I'm in the midwest and have had zero issues with FedEx, but the same nightmare stories as you except with USPS.
