  1. Omg, i have the worst golf dreams. Rarely do i ever play actual golf. Most of them, the entire dream(which seems like an hour) involve me trying to find a place on the tee where i can swing unimpeded. Theres always some obstacle in the say such as a tree, but most common is a wall of some sort. Or im in a room trying to hit through a window. I never get to hit the shot before waking up. Its so frustrating. Posted: Oct 7, 2019 6:40am #9 OMG...I have that kind of dream all the time. I never get to hit the ball. I once read of some famous golfer who had the same type of dream, so it must be somewhat common to golfers.
  2. I always thought that sand based ranges were tougher on the clubs. No real world experience to confirm this. Our ranges are more dirt, clay based.
  3. I also have to have clean clubs at all times. I carry three towels and a brush. I also feel if I don't have a divot tool in my pocket, I will not hit any greens. And finally, I have two raw vokeys that will rust after a light drizzle. It drives me crazy. No rust on my clubs!! I have CLR and sanding sponges just for these clubs. Thanks for listening.
  4. I have the clear ones from Castle Bay. I really like them because they are fairly discreet. Since they are clear they don't have any numbers on them so they are interchangeable. I think you get ten in a pack so I still have spares laying around if I ever lose one. The only downside is they can be a little hard to remove in really cold weather.
  5. I played the MP33 since 1999. I had tried the MP14 first and they were a little too demanding for me at that time. I always felt the 33s were like game improvement blades. Exceptional feel and a little larger face for a touch of forgiveness. I tried the MP32 and I didn't like the feel as much. I have tried/tested a lot of other irons over the years, but I haven't really tested any of the other MP blades since then. Last year I bought some MP64s with the Nippon 1150 shafts. I feel like these are a touch better through the turf then the 33s. Both have comparable forgiveness and feel. I still have the 33s and would play them in heartbeat, but the 64s have won the primary slot for now. Cheers
  6. Wow! Because of this topic I went out tonight and found a Titleist 910D2 with an Accra Tour Prototype shaft in it for a c-note. Stopped by the course and hit a dozen balls with it. Very nice. My arsenal of drivers: Titleist LFE 975 w/ Prolite. R510TP w/ Speeder. Ping G25 w/ Oban Kiyoshi Gold.
  7. My bag has 14 year old MP33s. All of my wedges are over six years old. I have a cb1 three wood and 906f five wood. New driver though ...913, and even newer shaft in it. Putter is right around six years old, maybe older. However, I do my fair share of club testing, some quite extensive. And I will probably be upgrading my lob wedge this year.
  8. I have a sun mountain dynamis from 2000, hasn't worked in years. Is it worth saving? Anyone use their service center at Jtech? It was great when it worked. Kind of miss it. But the garage needs to be cleaned out, so I have to decide. Thanks
  9. I have the same problem. My lob and sand wedges are over ten years old. I've tried to replace my lob several times but the old one keeps worming it's way back into the bag. I just started looking on ebay for the exact replacement. Then I might send the original to the iron factory for a facelift.
  10. Another vote for the MP33s. Got mine in 99'. Since then I've tried/owned a lot of challengers. Nothing can beat them. Owned: Two sets of copper eye 2s. Plus and no plus. I 3 blades. (not even in the running) Srixon 302s w/ rifle and dgs shafts Bridgestone J33s combos w/ dgs Mp 32s and 14s w/dgs TM 300's w/ rifle s Titleist tour model circa 95 w/ dgx (still have these) Hoffman blades w/rifle s (still have these) Precept tour premium. Tried: Mp68 Mp64 had C tapers. I would like to try dg's in these. Mp30s
  11. [quote name='gould.cooper' timestamp='1357496846' post='6178539'] I am considering buying the 910 d3 from a friend. It's a 9.5 degree. How does everyone like it? Any feedback on feel, trajectory, etc., or a comparison with another driver would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks, CG [/quote] I had a 910D3 for a few weeks this fall. Good feel and solid sound. Tried the R11 and 11s models and I was really put off by the sound/feel plus the TM's were not as straight for me. I would have probably kept the 910, but was able to trade even up for a new 913. I like the shaft in the 913 more and it does seem a bit more forgiving. I heard the 910s are selling for $195 new now. Hope this helps.
  12. Best buy for me was a brand new 906f2 five wood. I've only had it a few weeks but I've hit so many good shots with it, I just love it. 2nd place would be a 913D3 driver. I really like it so far, need to wait until warm weather to really judge it. May reshaft in the spring. The "eehh, not so much" award goes to my Mizuno R12 50* wedge. First of all, I just HATED the spinner shaft. Also, it was a half inch shorter than the vokey it replaced!?! Reshafted to the "normal" length with a DG but that raised the swingweight too much. So for now, the vokey is back in the bag and the R12 is the backup. Also, bought a R9 superdeep used. Hated it, reshafted it, hated it, sold it. And finally, judging from these replies, I'm glad I didn't buy a RBZ three wood.
  13. [quote name='savoyspecial13' timestamp='1356391064' post='6113381'] [quote name=' Driver 8' timestamp='1356385335' post='6113105'] One of my playing partners lost his clubs in a fire. I lent him a Vokey 54 and 60 from my backup bag. He had been using Cleveland wedges. Halfway thru the round he is ecstatic about the performance of the wedges compared to his old ones. Offers to buy them on the spot. He is not the type to research clubs or seek out sites like this, so he will probably now play Vokeys for the rest of his life. I had the same experience about ten years ago. I tried the Vokey and it just worked better than my 588. It was really eye opening how similar the clubs looked but how different they played. [/quote] Would you mind elaborating on how they played different for you? Thanks [/quote] The Cleveland was very easy to chunk, especially when wet. The vokey never had that problem. If you play where the ground is rock hard, the 588 might work better, or if your swing is more a sweeper type as opposed to digger type. I also preferred the feel of the vokey.

  15. I have a vokey 60 degree that I bent to 62. Pure money! It is my favorite club to use around the green. I've had it for years and plan on having it rechromed this winter.
