  1. Just ordered an Epic 10.5* and a 3wd for just over $200 out of pocket. Not bad!
  2. I don't see the 150% listed on their site though....
  3. Is it through Callaway directly or honored at local retailers?
  4. If you find a set on Callaway preowned try code 15XEM and see if it gives you a discount. I just started a thread where I am hemming and hawing(SP?) between Cobra and the Callaway combo sets. Then you go and post that code. I apply it to the irons in my cart, and voila! It worked for me too. Now I have my cart up and my finger hovering over the buy button. Code didn't work for me. Anyone have an updated code I can use so I can join the CF16 family? :)

One thing to note - these are 1" longer than the same corresponding irons, so I had to order them 1" short to be standard 4-iron and 5-iron length. [/quote] Ordered my 18* at -1/2 inch, but it is the gap filler between 4 Apex and 5 wood! I found the Apex UT 21* to be a bit longer--yardage- than my Apex 4 iron, but not by much, so the -1 inch and similar shaft and you should be solid!! and LOOK alot like the Apex at address..maybe a bit smaller!! [/quote] I ordered a 24* at standard length to replace my Apex Pro 4i (23* - 38.5") with the same shaft as my irons. Should I have gone shorter or will the longer shaft offset the higher loft? [/quote] You'll probably hit it a bit further due to the 1" longer length, even with the 1* weaker loft. [/quote] It's only 1/2" longer, no? (39" vs. 38.5")

  7. Looking for advice on how to construct a combo set. I already have the Apex Pro's which I love. While I hit the 4i and 5i well, I could always use some more forgiveness. based on the Callaway website, the lofts from each set are: Apex Apex Pro Apex MB 4i 21.5 23 24 5i 24 26 27 6i 27 29 31 7i 31 33 35 8i 35 37 39 9i 40 41.5 43 PW 45 46 47 Should I order the Apex 4i and 5i and have them bent to match the specs of the Apex Pro's? Also, Assume I can order the MB's in 8-PW to match the lofts of the Pro's, right?
  8. [quote name='Paulw007' timestamp='1406411279' post='9791591'] I literally just picked this up yesterday around 4:30, ran out to the course and played 18 holes. I have hit no more than 25 balls with this driver. I love the looks and feel of this driver but with some recent back and neck issues I just am not able to keep the ball in the air. Looks as new and comes with stock head cover and adjustment too. Trade interests would be other drivers, stiff (TM RBZ Tour, Cobra, or putters) I am open to anything really. Cobra Bio Cell +, 8-11* adjustment range, Stiff Matrix shaft. $195 Shipped!

[/quote] PM sent re potential trade....

[quote name='eerogolf' timestamp='1377021619' post='7713472'] [quote name='BenSeattle' timestamp='1377020812' post='7713372'] From David Dusek's s55 article in Golfweek.com (August 19): "Ping has not yet announced the stock shaft nor the price for the S55 irons." [url="http://golfweek.com/news/2013/aug/19/ping-s55-irons/"]http://golfweek.com/...ping-s55-irons/[/url] [/quote] Again not true everything has been set for a while. price list effective august 29th has both set [/quote] Unless my calendar is wrong, it's not August 29th yet. Therefore the statement that "Ping has not yet announced the stock shaft nor the price" is, in fact, accurate.
  10. I have fewer than 75 posts, but I have multiple positives transactions here over the last 5 years. Do I still have to pay the $5 fee to list items, in spite of my "good standing" in the BST forum?
  11. If you're a 1, you can handle the s56's. I'm an 8 and play them 4-pw with no problem and have no fear pulling the 4i. They are much more forgiving than their size would indicate IMHO. Alternately, why not order a custom set of i20's 3-6 and s56's 7-pw?
  12. Like the previous poster, I had a set (with KBS Tour, though) last year. I too got i20's for more forgiveness. I also regretted the change. I have since sold the i20's and got my old set back. I think they are a great blend of playability and forgiveness.
