  1. Don't bother. A couple grams of hot melt here or there isn't going to have a noticeable affect on the COG so there really isn't any point in trying to move it around. Don't bother. A couple grams of hot melt here or there isn't going to have a noticeable affect on the COG so there really isn't any point in trying to move it around. I am "training" on an XR16 head that was 189g (?) without the hosel and with the shaft it only swingweighted C5.5. I added a bunch of hotmelt maybe as much as 13g (?) to where it then swingweighted at D2.5. Thinking that was too much I reached up in the hea
  2. Good Lord that is a lot of melt. 99% of applications is probably 4-6 grams and it just isn't enough to move the COG but I guess if you're adding 10+ swing weight points it'll do something.

  4. The fit and finish isn't even close. I'm not slinging mud because I wouldn't buy a putter from any of the three brands but the attention to detail on the two pictures you showed isn't even close to what you'll find in a Cameron or a Lamb. Bettinardi is a different story. I have actually done some work with his machine shop and he's got some really good machinists but he went down a strange road with materials, finishes and shafts. From a technical standpoint Bettinardi probably has the best capabilities but he doesn't have the design/artistry of Cameron. I think the other guy who is rea
  5. Amazing course. Played it in August when i was back up north. It is 45 at twilight walking. It is 65 prime time. Sucks it is getting more expensive. It used to be 25 to walk when i was in high school and college lol It's a really good layout. No range and it's right next to a landfill so if the wind is blowing the wrong way it's miserable. If you put this course in a resort area it would cost $180+. Worth playing if you're in the area but Thunderhawk right down the road is better, however, a little more expensive. Thanks for the comparison to Thunderhawk - finally got out there this y

  7. I didn't even care for these matches when they were free. I find it really hard to watch just two people play. There is so much downtime and it just gets annoying. I feel bad for the commentators who are going to have to fill all that time. I'd rather see them wager their own money. Let whomever is down press the bet up and let's see who has bigger balls.
  8. The Mizuno 300S was something you always heard of but never saw back in the day. They have it as introduced in 2001 and the MSRP was $900 but for some reason I thought it came out a little before that. Vijay won the Masters with it in 2000 but maybe it was just a prototype at the time. $900 MSRP for a driver in 2001 is great.
  9. The Synergy is going to be a very hard shaft to beat which is typical of Aldila. They tend to release a really good product once every couple years and then the subsequent releases have a hard time dethroning a little older product. It seems like they're getting back to their roots a little with this in that they are doing a refresh of an old favorite. The hard sell is going to be the price tag for this one if they bring these to retail above $300.
  10. I've played both the SIX and the SIX TS in the past. The TS is a very underrated shaft and the difference between those two is the TS is a little stiffer throughout the shaft and is lower torque. From what I understand the SIX XLR8 was just a little refresh of the SIX that added some of their newer technology while still playing about the same.
  11. I cover it entirely and then punch a hole in it after the grip is installed. There should be an opening because condensation could build up inside the shaft and rust it but I'm guessing for most of us Hoes we don't hold on to clubs for long enough to allow them to rust anyway.
  12. I used to be a Sales Rep so I've been in a lot of golf shops and I can tell you hands down the most impressive one is Roger Dunn in Santa Ana. Every manufacturer has its own enclosed fitting stall with either TrackMan or Foresight and I can promise you that you will never find a larger selection. They probably have 500 Vokey wedges on the floor at any given time.
  13. 100% agree. So what if you get a perfect combo but the player you're fitting just hates the look or feel of the head? There are people out there who don't care what the head looks like or feels like but the majority of us will set a club down and decide whether or not we like it before they ever swing it. So when I start with the head I'm doing so because I've got a ton of shaft options to work with but I can't change the shape or appearance of the head. Fitting is more than just getting perfect numbers on a screen. It's honestly more about confidence because I guarantee that if you
  14. Probably going to put a lite in my 3iron I'll give a +1 to that. The C Taper lite is a really good option for driving irons and long irons.
  15. To me they feel dead and horrible so they will probably help with the tendonitis. They're also really hard to build with. I'd try a sensicore insert first. Cheap experiment.
