  1. I feel so seen right now, it's like you're speaking to the inner depths of my soul. I've always thought this was just me. I still love my Speedblades, but you're right, they really open up for a "full Bryson" if all the stars align and you rip it.
  2. I also think of questions like this when my morning constitutional is taking too long. I would say Ping woods and Mizuno irons. Yes, when someone asks me which "one" I would answer with two. Even if it must be one, I'll answer with two.
  3. You've basically described what I came here to write. My index is around a 9 but varies across the season anywhere from 7-10. I had bought Titleist CB's. I loved them when they were pure. Then a combo of kids and work did a number on how much I practiced. So the less I played the more frustrated I got. I picked up a pair of TM Speedblades for cheap on eBay. Absolutely love what they've done for me. A miss with the Speedblades cost me 5-10 yards, a miss on the CB's cost me 15-20. They're also a lot straighter. Pros: -Distance. I know they're bent strong, but there's a mental confidence boost when you're standing over a 7i instead of a 6i. I know a swing is a swing, but we're all golfers and we're all mental. To me it matters. -Forgiveness. Exactly what I said above. -I can routinely back up the PW-8, sometimes 7. The 4-6 stay where they land. So I don't feel like I've given up much spin with these. This is with a Pro V1 for reference. Cons: -I can cut them, but drawing is questionable. It's doable, and maybe other swings would be better off, but not mine. -I already hit it high, plus they promote lift, so on super windy days sometimes it's annoying, but whatever, I club up 3 rather than 2 I guess. I'll still hit the CB's at the range for funsies, but I probably won't switch back full time.
  4. Well, I can certainly say I've learned a lot! I honestly didn't expect LCP to have such a standard to meet for implementation nor did I expect it to be offensive to some. I'd say this is likely a function of my youth competitive days. Most of my amatuer-->college golf was done in early spring conditions in courses that were only courses because nobody would build houses in flood plains. So our coaches/instructors were always quick to implement an LCP. Obviously that's a huge stretch to competitive Open qualifiers but it's been interesting reading these thoughts. I "know" all the rules but these nuances always intrigue me. Thanks everyone.
  5. Watching the Womens Open today and this past Saturday I feel like I've seen chunky mud covered golf balls more than I usually would. So I get that everyone plays by the same rules. But thus my question, when do you officials decide there's "enough" moisture/mud/ill conditions to warrant implementing lift/clean/place?
  6. Chad, you might be the first human in the world to call a Scotty "too soft." Good luck with the sale!
  7. I did a forum search but most of the stuff I find was older and I want to make sure their sizing hasn't changed. In general I'm a 36, but I've found that in Nike and FJ I need to be in better shape (if you catch my drift) to wear those comfortably. I technically still fit, but it's a struggle and in hindsight, since I like beer I should have bought those in 38. So I'm looking at Loudmouth and I think I'm hearing they probably run a little more athletic/tight. Do you guys agree with that? What about through the thighs? I usually can't wear pants like chinos or slim fit jeans, even if the waist is great, because I get tight through the thighs. Thanks everyone!

  9. Thanks mods! It's a thankless job so thanks for putting up with our grumpy demeanor.
  10. Thank you, guys. I think this is what I needed to hear. I could just go stand in a rainstorm, but I don't really need to give my wife a reason to think I'm more crazy than she already thinks I am.
  11. I'd love to know this too. Not to be too snarky, but I think we don't _really _need to know that someone typed in a "Closed" comment from a posting from January.
  12. Just to make sure I have my sizes right, are these standard FJ sizing, so an XL is probably more like a XXL in other brands? Scully13: The Footjoy sizing is approximately 24" from armpit to armpit and 30" from top of shoulder to bottom cuff.
  13. I've always worn a super old FJ rain jacket. I'd say it's _at least_ ten years old, but to give you a reference to style, the bottom part of it around the waist has a full elastic band (think of old Starter jackets). So, it works great, but it's heavy and hot and it makes swishing noises every time you move (and the damn elastic waist!!!!). It's not comfortable, but do you know what's worse then being slightly uncomfortable?? Being soaked. And this thing works amazingly well to keep me dry. Anyway, I picked up a relatively new used Hydrolite jacket. It feels like nothing is there!!!! It's so light and feels fluid. It feels more windbreaker than rain coat! My question then, does it work as well as what's in my head or is it intended to only be used in slight mists and maybe not thunderstorms? I'm just shocked how different these two jackets are, but I know technology moves quickly.
  14. I can't tell if I don't know how to use the new forums or if I'm just an idiot. Or both?! Do you still have the UA's? If so, what size/price?
