  1. Holderness and Bourne is the best but you pay for it. I also like Bad Birdie to get a little louder without being tacky. Peter Millar are very good quality but the sleeves are too long or grippy, something. If you play/practice in the heat a lot, just had some success with Amazon Basics. It was like $17 or something and totally fine for grinding in the heat. Just plain but works.
  2. The Vice Pure has proven to be the best overall value imo. Soft, durable, price point isn’t too high or low and they look clean.
  3. I’m sure there are many more out there who will love the sound or not have it bother them. But for my people who can’t take it, threw out a warning. Definitely agree about the feel and roll; both are great just like at address.
  4. @Triple yeah, that’s funny because I was going to call it the “Ping driver of putters” but didn’t want to hit the Ping beehive haha. To each his own!
  5. The Phantom X 11 sets up sooooo nicely but if any of y'all get annoyed by a "tink" at impact, just sayin' this has it big time - most pronounced on putts over 15ft. I couldn't hear it in the store but on the course/putting green, it was like nails on a chalkboard.
  6. I’ve had the 2019 QB6 in my bag longer than any other putter since I started playing the game. There is something about 362g that is just right on the money. When I set the putter down at address, it’s just the perfect look to me. Never been a big Scotty guy, but have had a couple. When the phantom x 11 dropped, have to admit I was a little drawn to it. Spent some time looking it up and started to get that...itch. But then yesterday, I had one of those awesome putting days and it just reminded me that I’ll never do better than the 2019 QB6. I should probably get a backup...
  7. These irons...I wanted to love them. Knowing the Icons were stretching it for a complete hack like me, I went for it. And after 3mo of trying to clear the water like ol' Roy, it is obvious that this isn't Hollywood. Received these on Aug 8, pics tell the story. Even had the good dudes at BH build with some custom Tiffany and silver BBF&Co ferrules - here's an up close. They are 2deg upright and 0.5" long compared to standard Hogan specs. 8-PW have some tape on it to play closer to D6 SW. KBS Tour X 120 shafts and the grips are midsized. Pics go 4i face, 4 back/bottom; 7i face,
  8. I've done this twice in the past 10 years or so and each time, I end up back with some sort of player's iron. You'll find out pretty quick that "easy" only applies to the confidence looking down at a massive clubhead. Spin will drop and holding firm greens will become like your 4i/5i now even with the 8i/9i in the GI set. Contact will probably feel decent on most shots, but while one will go the right distance, the same feel will go 10+ yards farther on the next. On the plus side, really crap strikes will travel well so as long as you miss straight - kinda nice. The clo
  9. Awesome, that's what I was looking for. Appreciated!
  10. For those of you with more understanding of shaft brands and profiles...I'm trying to figure out if moving from Modus 120x to KBS Tour X would hurt distance. No swing changes and my driver SS/ball speed is the same as it ever was. But moving from MIzuno 919 Tours with Modus 120x to a Hogan combo set with KBS Tour X has cost me ~10 yards throughout the bag. My 8i has been my 160 club for the better part of a decade at 38deg of loft. If I want that out of the Hogans with the KBS, have to really step on it. Now with this, I'd like to point out that dispersion with the KBS
  11. FWIW, I enjoyed the editorial - especially the $100 line...that is no joke haha
  12. Moved it down to 8deg, RCH 65 S. Would've never thought about Stiff nor stock until I hit this combo. Still don't get why it works, but it bangs.
  13. This driver is completely awesome. I went from playing an Xflex for nearly 20 years to this stock 65 S just because of Newton's review. I can't explain why it is working but the ball flight is ideal, the spin is just right, and the feel is about perfect. Remarkable.
  14. I absolutely love the Ecco cage spikeless. Got them for $80 shipped at TGW during a sale - regularly $250 I believe. Anyway, they are low rise which is different. But the grip on the turf is crazy good. If you're 39, you know by now - get what you like and eff the haters.
