Are you able to test equipment on a golf course with one week of its receipt? - yes 6. Do you agree to participate in an ongoing testing thread, posting reviews and photos? - of course!
  2. A couple relatively rare Yes! putters, a couple shafts, and a couple cult fav long irons up for sale. Prices are shipped OBO continental US, please PM with reasonable offers. No trades. Yes! Katie Slant - 34.5" with black Iomic standard grip (65 g). Interesting one with a cushioned C-groove insert, don't believe these ever were sold retail. Tiny nick on the back edge not visible from address, tried to capture it in the pics, otherwise very clean. Non matching headcover included for protection. Sold Yes! Jenny Tour - 32.5" with green Iomic I-classic grip (50 g). Typical wear for black finished putters on the bottom from use, tried to capture it in the pics. Love the look and feel, but just doesn't fit me. These don't pop up too often. Non matching headcover included for protection. $175 $150 obo UST Attas Elements Prototype RK 7x - Ping G410 driver/wood adapter. Measures approx. 42.25" from tip of adapter to butt of grip with green and yellow Lamkin UTX. Unsure of tipping as I received used. Tried this as a short driver shaft for a bit, but could also serve as longish 3 wood shaft. $65 $50 obo Diamana Whiteboard D+ 80 x5ct stiff - Titleist wood adapter. Measures 42.5" from tip of adapter to butt of grip with black New Decade. Unsure of tipping as I received used. $45 $35 obo Ping S55 3 and 4 irons w/ CFS stiff shafts - Black dot with Ping grips. Measure 39.5" and 39" for the 3 and 4, respectively. Slight finish wear, but faces are in essentially new shape. Bought to try and combo with some blades, but don't get along with the shafts. Easy to see why people love these irons though. $125 $110 obo
  3. The higher bounce might not be a bad thing. The low launch seems to indicate a delofted club at impact, and therefore less presented bounce. If that's the case the increased bounce with the retro spec should be slightly friendlier than a similar lofted club that hasn't been adjusted.
  4. I've got a Taylormade M5 driver, and for the life of me I can't remove the shaft. I've unscrewed as much as possible, but the head only feels moderately loose. Tried giving it a tap like is sometimes necessary with Pings, but no dice. Don't really want to wail on it except as a last resort. Any ideas how to fix?
  5. 1. Milwaukee, WI 2. Hdcp: 0 3. Current driver set-up: Ping g410+ w/ Ping Tour 65x 4. What KBS TD wood shaft do you want to win? 60g X 5. Why do you want to win a KBS TD shaft? Haven't had the best results in the past with KBS steel iron shafts, but have never hit their graphite. Always looking for more consistent strike location, feel, and overall result 6. Would you be open and honest about your swing with an expert from KBS? Yes
  6. Really depends what you want to play and how pristine the clubs need to be to fit your eye. I'd personally go for a mix of fun and cult classics that you'll still be able to find in good shape and not so old as to be obsolete. If you're set on Srixon irons, I'd argue that the 7 series is nearly as forgiving as the 5 and looks/feels better. The 765 irons look quite a bit bigger than most irons in their category and could easily fit your budget. Otherwise, a decent set of AP2s from 4-10 years ago could meet the budget pretty easily. As others have mentioned, Cobra drivers and woods seem to lose value very quickly so finding a couple for $200 or less (total) shouldn't bee too hard. Dr: Cobra LTD - $120 FW: Cobra F8 - $70 Hy: Adams Idea Pro - $50 Irons: Srixon z745 or z765 - $500 Wedges: Ping Glide 2.0 - $180 Putter: Yes! Callie - $75 Club Total: $995
  7. Made a purchase from eBay on Wednesday Nov. 25, seller dropped off the package for delivery on Friday Nov. 27. It made it from Oklahoma to South Carolina (delivery is to Wisconsin, lol) by the 29th. No updates since Monday the 30th. I'm not in any huge rush, but would like to know at what point I should be submitting a ticket or starting to get worried. I've had several club deliveries (both sender and receiver) this year and this is the first one with any significant delay. I'm not too worried as it's only been a week, but don't know if there is a point in which I'll lose recourse if I wait to long to act.
  8. I'd have to agree with the other two posts: looks otr. Neck stamping is an abbreviation of "Swash Design" as Harold Swash was the designer.
  9. May have to adjust the lofts to get the gaps right, but Srixon 7 series irons were noticeably lower spinning for me. The 5 series even moreso, but too big of a jump from blades imo.
  10. Yes! Nicole Tour. Very possibly the prettiest I've ever laid hands on.
  11. @Remon I feel the same way - was fit into z765s a few years back and they were just too big and I couldn't find the middle consistently.
  12. @Remon @mws92 How do the iBlades compare looks and size-wise? Is there a large jump to the BP in looks/offset? Interesting to hear that the BP seem to keep up distance-wise!
  13. I haven't, but have seen that they are *quite* small. I'm fine with the size of the Mizunos, but worry about something smaller and wouldn't hate a bit more forgiveness in the 4/5 so long as the jump in looks between them and the Blueprints isn't too much.
  14. My main concern would be having such a big jump in size/looks/offset in the middle of the set, which is why I'm not really looking at the i500 or i210 (which are obviously great clubs, they just don't fit my eye). The iBlade may be a decent option, or t100, or Cobra King cb. However, I'm quite limited in terms of actually seeing/hitting them so I wanted to see if anyone has gone that route and could compare.
