  1. Never too late! I'm the OP from what , 2015? I just grabbed ANOTHER set of heads....these just make sense for me....same tech as they advertise with 2019 apex pro.. in a better looking package imho.... Did you get any rounds in yet? Love how LT starts this thread 2 years ago and comes back in like the prodigal son and buys another set. I knew you couldn't stay away! I've owned 3 sets. First ones I bought, played, and sold. Now I'm gaming another set and have a backup ready to go. These irons really are unicorns if you ask me. Now excuse me while I go look for another set... You're not very good at math Christopher.....it's nearly FOUR years ago that we started this! I really am bad at math! If this thread stays up for a full 4 years, we might get bumped to antique clubs :cheesy:

  3. My fairway wood is more of a 4 wood. I used to take a 5 wood and adjust the loft down to play to a 4 wood. So I guess I love my 5 wood? Plus the smaller head shape is more appealing to me. I think it all depends on the course you play the most though. My home track only needs 225-240 off any par 4 so I can play my 5/4 wood and not lose anything. Actually, I'm in better position than if I hit a driver off the tee! But I've played a few courses that demand 230 plus off every par 4 and 5. For those cases, I'd swap the 5/4 for a 3 to make sure I'm well past the 230 danger zone.
  4. USPS really has been slow recently for me too. First it was the holidays, then its bad weather and more federal holidays. So that's probably the hangup. Its almost to the point where I'll pay extra to go with UPS. They're a bit better but nobody is ideal. At least their customer service is better and their tracking seems to be much better.
  5. Odds are it'll be my hybrid again for the 4th year. I just can't beat this Nike VR pro! Toulon Atlanta isn't far behind either and I'll try to keep that in the bag the whole season. Also a solid chance my irons will remain in the bag. Maybe a few test drives with other stuff but I feel like the XTD's will keep their champion belt.
  6. We're not sharing this with our wives are we? Ok good...I'll be honest! Taylormade 200 Cobra 440sz (can't remember the name but the loud annoying one) Callaway Big Bertha circa 2006 Titleist 905s Titleist 905R Callaway FT-9 iMix Taylormade R7 425 Taylormade R11s Taylormade R1 Cleveland Classic Custom Taylormade R9 Supertri Taylormade SLDR 430 Ping G30 Nike Vapor Flex Taylormade M1 '16 Taylormade M4 Ping G400 LST (there's probably 3 more at least that I'm forgetting)
  7. Best bet is to check out their site if you're not going to go for a fitting. I went through the wedge fitting back in 2014 and really learned a lot about my wedge game and my swing with wedges. I bought a 51, 56 and 60. I've been happy with them overall. I knew the fitter from a few prior run-ins so he gave me a great fitting and also made some suggestions if I decided to look at other wedge companies. I think the fitting is really helpful if you don't really know much about your wedges and what you should look for. I knew a lot about golf clubs already but went in blind to the fitting as far as expectations. I was given a bachelors degree's worth of info by the end! I think the products are good but you could see similar results with just about any wedge if it's fit to your swing (or you fit to it's design). All in all, first check the site. If you don't understand what is going on given the results of that, you could A) get a fitting or B) look at other wedges. If there was a miracle wedge out there, everyone on tour would be playing them!
  8. Personally, I'd hold on to it until you know for sure your new purchase is going to stick. That's why I kept all my drivers aside from 3 since 2012! Haha But seriously, once you commit to a new club and don't mind parting with it, I'd suggest donating it to a local First Tee program instead of trying to trade it in. I've done it in the past and it's really made me smile to think there's some kid out there using my older clubs and hopefully getting hooked on the game. I had a few guys who did that with me when I was just getting into it and couldn't afford anything beyond a dozen golf balls and a few rounds on a caddie's budget.
  9. I started out the season on the #twistface train as many of us did. I hit some crazy drives with it I'll admit. But the misses were frightening to say the least. Then along came the G400 LST. The only driver I didn't test when I did my tour van fitting at PGA superstore. And boom! Numbers were spot on with the M4 if not better. But the one thing that stood out the most was the misses! Much more forgiving for me personally. I'd gladly take 5-7 less yards and be right down the center every time. Finally can say my bag is set and it only took me 12 months to do it! Driver? Check! Fairway wood? Check! Hybrid? mostly check... Iron? Check! Wedges? mostly check... Putter? Check Check! Now I just need to stay off of this site and give into temptation for something new next year and just work on course management!
  10. Aside from being left handed which is a quirk within itself, I prefer to have one more wrap of tape under my lower hand so it's usually 3,2 or 4,3. Other than that, I tee off with the small side logo of the ball pointing towards my target. That's an old habit from setting up the old Bridgestone launch monitors when I worked for them. Also helps me swing down the line. But the text has to be upside down. Yeah now that I type it out, I realize how crazy that sounds... Sky marks on fairway woods or hybrids drives me up the wall. Almost to the point where I won't play a club with damage to the crown. Always put my headcover back on the club after I use it (hangup from caddying days). Other semi-equipment related things- I always have an older quarter in my pocket somewhere around 1972 (even par). I use it as a ball mark or I'll use something else but always have a quarter from 1974 or older. Also I keep 3 tees in my left pocket. Man thinking of all my quirks makes me realize how nutty I am!
  11. Agreed that WS makes some great irons! I've got a set of FG Tour V4's that are my standby set. Basically they're the AP2's but a touch smaller from heel to toe (at least that's in my eyes). A buddy of mine was considering V6's then transition to C300 forged. For my experience, I love my xtd forged but they're getting harder to find so if you can't find a good set of those, look at Wilson. You'd be surprised how great they feel and how well they perform. Plus they're not too awful on the bank account! Another set would be the Nike covert forged. I'm a lefty so I never tried them but boy are they great looking!
  12. Irons. Love my Adams XTD forged irons and can't imagine switching. So happy I bought 2 sets! Next would be driver although I changed right at the end of my season. Gotta love that G400 LST with tour shaft!
  13. Anyone have any experience with the fenix 5x plus? I'm considering getting one for myself after christmas. I also go camping and fishing out in the middle of nowhere so I'd use it for maps and GPS purposes too where topo maps are pretty handy. I don't think I'd wear it while playing though. I hear the size and weight can be a bit too much.
