  1. I would like to say thank you to Lag Shot and GolfWRX for this opportunity, it is always a pleasure. I received the item over a week ago, and the package came with directions to navigate to the site hosting the instructional videos. As directed I watched all the videos prior to taking a single swing with the 7-iron. The videos were satisfactory for conveying the message, but I do wish there were more drills in the library. First Impressions - Grip seems midsized, not good or bad, just an observation - Club is heavy, but not as heavy other training aids designed to be so - Shaft is whippy, more so than an orange whip - Blue shaft is attention grabbing - Good looking product that feels well made Range Sessions I struggled mightily, no way to sugar coat it. I did what the videos told me to do, whether it was point location at the top of the backswing, weight shift or down swing and the results were extremely consistent... shank shank shank. I was shanking the 7-iron on 80% of the swings with the other 20% major slices. I do not move the ball from left to right on the course, even when I try that is not in the cards for me. I went to the range multiple times, so this was not a one off occurrence for me unfortunately. Each time I set the Lag Shot back into the bag I preceded to shank pitching wedges, 7 irons, or massively snap hook a driver. I will not give up on this training aid and happily report back if things change but I would be letting down my fellow WRXers if I didn't report what happened to ME. I think this aid can become useful for me in time as it does magnify some flaws in my swing, but I would suggest nobody use it for the first time with an event you care about coming up.
  2. Placeholder post: It has gone to the range but want to give it tomorrow before giving the full write up!
  3. I sure did … I blacked out one of the slight lines due to the text. Also has a Matte KBS OneStep
  4. So far so good. The shaft is in a new putter so I can’t compare it to a traditional shaft in the same head, but I can comment on how little flex there is on long putts and the solid feel. But still a ways to go as I’ve used it for 18 holes and an hour on the Big Moss total
  5. Lulu orBonobos Tour Highland. Lulu is probably my preference due to the zipper of the Bonobos

  14. A call to Dismal is worth a shot, not as difficult to get on if you simply ask. I would not be surprised if Sandhills is already closed for the season at that point though.
  15. Fact. Sun sleeves are great and I feel much cooler while wearing them.
  16. The line is gone, singles can’t go stand outside waiting for a time slot. I recommend reaching out to St Andrew’s ASAP. They told me that they have no mechanism for a single to play as of the last communication.
  17. Still waiting on mine. Payment first week of June, final design confirmed first week of July, could be done in August, could be Sept. Even though it feels like it is taking forever I know that timeline is very acceptable in this industry.
  18. As always first to send payment received the item. Trade offers welcome! 1) PXG 0311T 4-P $-Tapers & BCT grips. Standard lofts, 2* upright and 1/2” long. I am the only owner they have ever had. Valueguide says price is $648-$877, these have $-Tapers and BCT’s so $700 gets them. (Willing to sell heads). 2) PXG Mini Gunboat H 34” & SNSR grip. I am the only owner it has ever had. Valueguide says this starts at $148, so let’s do that. $OLD gets it. 3) Ventus Velocore Blue HB 8X @ 39”. Only owner it has ever had, great for a driving iron. I kept the 9X. $OLD
  19. The site says 30 business days, sounds like 6 weeks to me. Makes sense
  20. Today they told me they are behind on the grass and may not even have golfers on it for another year
  21. I have owned all three models in various clubs. I want to win a Blue 7TX Into a Titleist TSi2
  22. I wouldn’t list on Marketplace. You have to join Golf Club Traders or some other large equipment group
  23. One thing that hasn’t been mentioned yet is the impact of Facebook, specifically the selling of equipment there. FB transactions are often without fees and seems to reach a larger audience.
  24. Spot on. That will be the decision I try to make and frankly it isn’t even a decision if reported prices are accurate
