  1. TM RBZ $100 Callway Razr Fit 5w $40 Adams Pro DHY 3h $100 Mizumo MPH5 Gift from CEO Vokey SM3 52 $40 Cleveland RTX 56 & 60 $150 Odyssey Metal-X $40 Total $470 for equipment that retails for $3000+ Can't be mad about it. Although I will be upgrading driver & Wood this season I think
  2. The opposite happened to me a few weeks ago. I shot 90, lower side of my average, so I should be happy about that but it took me forever to get to the greens. I had 29 putts and 7 1-putts, but I couldnt even sniff a GIR.
  3. [quote name='Stuart G.' timestamp='1404204910' post='9614055'] [quote name='Chip&Putt19' timestamp='1404183418' post='9612937'] This new shaft comes in at 45" raw length. The total length of my current shaft is 41.5", and the Razr Fit adapter is 2.25". The trimming code calls for a 1 inch tip trim and then butt to length. What are the specs I should be asking for from Golfworks to get it to the same 41.5" shaft length including the adapter? [/quote] Just checked a pulled razr-fit adapter I have lying around. It adds a little more than 1/2" to the length over the raw shaft length (9/16") so you'll want the raw shaft length (after tipping) to be 41". That's 1" off the tip and 3" off the butt although it's better to use the tipping and final raw length when specifying in the order. [/quote] So you're saying that after you account for the part of the adapter that fits into the head, there's about .5" of extra length? Where the O-N-C face angle choice is basically? So 41" raw length plus that adapter portion should get me to the stock length, that sounds logical. Another semi-related question: When people say they are playing a 44" driver or whatever the length/club may be, what is the 44" referring to? Raw length, crown to end of grip, grip to hosel?

[quote name='MtlJeff' timestamp='1404260307' post='9619557'] [quote name='Sean2' timestamp='1404260119' post='9619537'] [quote name='MtlJeff' timestamp='1404260021' post='9619531'] Hey i'm a 32 year old man, and literally the most exciting thing that's happened to me in the last 2 weeks is that my wife volunteered at an ultra marathon and came home with like 20 pounds of leftover freezies. I've been eating nothing but freezies for 2 weeks [/quote] You LUCKY 32 year old man! [/quote] And i hate the orange ones, so i have like 20 orange freezies left in my freezer and i don't want to eat them. The white ones were gone in like a day. The blue ones went fast too. [/quote] Sounds like 20 orange freezies are calling my name.
  5. Callaway Razr Fit 5w. Finally gave me a wood that I can turn to for consistent fairway and I can BOMB it. Gives me amazing confidence on the tee box and the contact feels solid every time. Poor club has gotten beat up over the years, repainting it and shaft upgrade coming this week so it's going to be real hard to kick it out of bed.
  6. [quote name='riehlg' timestamp='1404184292' post='9613023'] Putter. Driver. Wedge. If you can putt well, you can hide bad chipping easier. If you aren't hitting your driver straight (or I guess I intend this to imply to all tee shots not just the driver) and you're putting yourself under trees and having to waste a shot with punch outs it's going to kill your score. My bad rounds are never due to bad putting or chipping. My bad rounds are when my tee game suffers and I'm wasting a bunch of shots. [/quote] I subscribe to this way of thinking. My best rounds are always when I'm hitting my tee shots the best. My irons are pretty consistent so when I'm giving myself reasonable irons from the fairway instead of 4 irons from under a tree. Irons and putting are pretty consistent but my driving is garbage. Last round I had to abandon the driver and tee off solely with my 5w on the back 9 and I played much better because I was in the fairway. For my game it goes Driver, Wedge, Putter. Driver is the most inconsistent and thus effects my score the greatest. Putter is usually my best club, and usually I'm the best putter in my group, so if my wedges can get me close then I'll be sinking a lot of one putts.
  7. http://www.golfworks.ca/product.asp_Q_pn_E_AS0025_A_cn_E_10035 I am planning on ordering this shaft to put into my 5wood. This is the first time I order an aftermarket shaft and I just want to make sure I order it to the correct length. The head it is going into is a Razr Fit 5w. This new shaft comes in at 45" raw length. The total length of my current shaft is 41.5", and the Razr Fit adapter is 2.25". The trimming code calls for a 1 inch tip trim and then butt to length. What are the specs I should be asking for from Golfworks to get it to the same 41.5" shaft length including the adapter? Thanks for any help!
  8. Switched from an Odyssey Crimson Series 330 that I had been using for ~8 years to an Odyssey Metal-X #6 last week. Loving the fat blade with a plumber's neck hosel. Gets me right on top of the ball and rolls super smooth.
  9. I haven't used one in over a year now. I go Driver, 5w(that I love), 3i and then at the bottom i have PW/52/56/60. I don't see any use for a 3w for me. I play the white tees, so a well struck driver and 5w will get me home if I want to go that route if not then I'll hit a 7i or something to put me a wedge out. I never find myself needing to hit a 3w, if my driver isn't working I'm fine with hitting my 5w off the tee.
  10. Robin Arthur answered my email earlier asking me a bunch of questions to be able to better provide me with shaft suggestions. I am pretty excited about this. This is my first time looking into an aftermarket driver shaft and having this personal touch is something I am really enjoying.
  11. [quote name='yumanike' timestamp='1397604210' post='9100039'] For the Xcaliber shafts, they are supposed to be aligned with the Red line straight up and the white line facing the target. Reverse if you are left handed. Also, tell me if you find a better shaft for the money. The AXE 6+ TS in my Fast 12 LS 8.5 has beaten all challengers. I'm hoping to try one in a SLDR and see if it is magic! [/quote] Thanks for the tip, I'll definitely remember that if I end up getting and AXE (which seems like what I'll do). I found the 7+ on golfworks.ca for $66 and I don't see how I could beat that with all the glowing reviews.
  12. I read somewhere that the AXE shafts come roughly pure'd with a couple marks on them. Can anyone verify this and how accurate it was?
  13. [quote name='VNutz' timestamp='1397570898' post='9095701'] On a budget, the Axe Xcalibers are hard to beat. The tour models are a bit more of a lower flight, while the regular maroon models are about mid/mid. I threw a tour model in a G25 last weekend and it's hard to beat. The tour shaft looks pretty mean IMO. [/quote] I think I'd be able to live with a bit of a lower flight because I swing hard. I can count on one hand the drives last season that I honest-to-goodness hit properly and they were in the 260-275 range. Plus if I gain more confidence I'll be able to go after it harder so I should still be able to get good flight out of a lower trajectory shaft. With the amount of people suggesting AXE shafts they just might be the way to go. I'm thinking a Tour7+ should do me good.
  14. [quote name='Laws of Woo' timestamp='1397518479' post='9091685'] Check out axe xcalibur. Their shafts are money, especially at $30-60. [/quote] Never heard of them before and doing some quick googling this seems like a really promising option. Nothing but positive surprised reviews based on low price but great results.
  15. [quote name='kwooten31' timestamp='1397519884' post='9091861'] [quote name='Laws of Woo' timestamp='1397518479' post='9091685'] Check out axe xcalibur. Their shafts are money, especially at $30-60. [/quote] Was just fixing to say the same thing, picked up a black tour fairway shaft for $35.00. Thing is awesome!! [/quote] Where did you find it for that price?
