  1. feel free to contact me about getting in our league, it is year round and the 2nd half just started so you have plenty of time to still win. We play all over during the summer and then Palm aire and Pelican Pointe in the winter Is this game still going Would like to join Sorry haven't been on here in a while, i play friday in a skins game and Some sundays in a quota/skins/greenies game at forrest lakes. There is also a skins game on Monday and a quota/skins/greenies game on Wednesday. Games start at 2:30 during the week and 9:00 on Sunday.
  2. Just reshafted back to the 130 stiff hard stepped from the 105x. My scores have sucked over the last couple months and started to realize it was when I went to the 105’s. They are great shafts but I wonder if the weight had something to do with it. Reshafted the 4 iron with the 130 and have been flushing it so figured I would go back. For me the 130 flight is lower and less spin than the 105. I feel the 105’s balloon a little into the wind vs the 130’s so I am excited. Hopefully I’m right as there is a tourney tomorrow.
  3. Still loving the 14 b330s, tried the b330 but to me the ball felt heavy and was 4-5 yards shorter on every club. It felt a little uncontrollable to me as they seemed to spin more on the 50-80 partial lob wedge shots, but less on chip shots compared to the 330s. I am probably the only one that saw that as most say it spins less, but the 330s is just right. Time to re-up down to 12 dozen or so, I was getting 6 dozen for under 100 on the bay but doubt I can find that deal anymore.
  4. Try the Project x lz, I bought a couple hand crafted off the bay for 39 bucks new and absolutely love it. It is 15-20 yards longer for me than the px hzrdus black, obviously not the right fit but this thing has been great and for that money it is a no brainer.
  5. I have been playing the 130's for awhile but put a 105x in my 3 iron lately and feel like I can't miss. Since they accidentally sent me a 105x wedge shaft I threw it in the pitching wedge and playing today and tomorrow, I can't wait to see the results. Every shot with the 105x has been a baby draw, the 130's would start left and turn left. Guessing the weight might be causing it but have always liked heavier shafts, guess we will see. Since I seem to like this profile picked up a project x lz hand crafted driver shaft since the hzrdus snapped and we will see how that goes today as well.
  6. I say hold out especially if you don't like the look of the 765. You could just find a nice used set of 745 and reshaft, that would be the cheapest option. I will be playing my 65s till they are beat to hell, I'm absolutely infatuated with them and love every chance I have to hit them. I'm so glad I ran into srixon equipment by chance. I had no idea it was so good. Hidden gem in my opinion. How are you liking that 745 driver? I don't want to jinx it. So I'll try not to speak too highly of it. Screw it. I've gone through a real bad slump in driving over the past year. I used to hit a nice reliable 260 yd cut. But I wanted more, don't we all. I decided to see a pro about working a draw into my game. What a long process. I easily learned to draw my irons, then hybrid, then 3 wood, but continued to struggle with driver. During that time I went through a handful of the newest and best drivers available, nothing seemed to click. On a whim, while surfing the bay one night I saw a Z745 driver with the Attas 6star. I've always been interested in the Attas shafts and it was only $150 for the whole set up I said what the hell and gave it a shot. Best gamble I've ever made. I've hit so many LONG tight penetrating draws with this thing. Jaw dropping really. At this point I'm not sure if it's the shaft or the club head. But I'm not changing a thing. It didn't come with an adjustment tool and I'm not even going to buy one. Of course it's not a magic stick, and I've had some bad drives. But it is the best I've drove the ball in a long long time and it has really brought some excitement back to my game. One of my long time playing partners even said, nice to have you back. He meant that it's nice to see me with long respectable good ball flight drives again. He said you're poking that thing out there 290-300, realistically I say it's more like 280. So, yeah I'm a fan. I've definitely learned that newer isn't always better. And the Z965 irons and even the 4 and 5 Z545 are awesome. Hit some of my best iron shots of the year last time out and it was my first round with them! This is the type of thing that draws you back into the game and gets you thinking about your next round all week. But I'm a realist, and I have to attribute some if not all of this to me just swinging well right now. Plus I have to give myself some credit, too! This is me and Srixon right now ~~~> Homies :friends: When you wanna try the f45 3 wood let me know, I have a head only with adapter, head cover, weight kit and tool. Complete the bag man. ha ha
  7. 1 item up for sale tonight. This is the coveted Tensei Orange V2 Prototype. It measures 42 3/4" has been tipped 1/2" and has a tm adapter. Played 43 1/2" in a tm 3HL, it has a new MCC +4 midsize grip. Will do 240 shipped including usps priority and paypal fees. Any questions fire away.
  8. The 965 is solid as well. Just a little more rounded but they definitely did not try to re-invent the wheel. If your miss is towards the toe the 965 would be the way to go if the look fits your eye.
  9. I'm thinking about giving these a try. I've had my AP2s for two seasons and they've done well. How do they compare in size? How about distance? Blade length is about the same and the toe on the 745s is a little sharper than the AP2. Top line looks a little thicker on the 745s which is a reason I stepped away from them for a moment. I really like the top line of the AP2 in all honesty, looks more "player-ish" and the roundness of the heads is just enough for me. I probably prefer the look of the AP2 overall, from address, cavity isn't even a contest going to the 745s.... Distance is close, but I'd give the edge to the Srixons, maybe due to a slightly stronger loft. AP2 seem to fly a little higher and feel a little more clicky, but nothing like the older models, to me. The 745s just feel amazing, there aren't too many irons out there that have given me this kind of feel combined with feedback. The sole on the Srixons may be a little more friendly as well, easy through the turf. I will be changing out the 6.0 LZ in my AP2 in favor of some PX 5.5, the 120g LZ may be a little much for me as I am playing the 5.5 in two other sets of irons, the 745s and some 695mb, and just feel more in control with the lighter shafts. I have had my 745s sitting in the garage for a while, now. Not because they aren't good, but because I know they aren't going anywhere while I ho some other irons but I know soon enough they will be back in the bag, I have shot my lowest rounds with those clubs. They really are fantastic. What the hell, I'm going all in. Srixon Z945 here I come. I'm just going to jump off the deep end and go for blades. I've read so many good things about them, that I have to give them a go. Plus, recently I came to the conclusion that just because it's new doesn't make it better. Plus they look so good! I don’t blame you! If I could do it again, I’d just go 945s, too!! I almost bought a used set a few months back.. didn’t, went back to the store after thinking about it and they were gone. Get them, and get them now!!! Lol I started with a combo set of 745’s and 945’s. Sold them to go all 945’s, they are so forgiving for blades and the feel is unbelievable. I would never play a different set of blades after these and I didn’t think I was good enough to play them. Could easily play a 945 3 iron if I could have found one.
  10. I wouldn't worry about it, I have mine hard stepped and I don't notice a difference in the 9 or wedge. You will be fine.
  11. The 125's are the closest to the px lz. I felt like the 125's spun a tad bit less so that might be exactly what you are looking for. The px Lz had a tendency to spin too much and balloon a touch on me.
