  1. So much good info- thanks all! I've decided against buying shaft pulls, better to try out and get exactly what I need. Since I do like the feel of the current Modus3 105S pretty well and numbers are decent, I'm now thinking perhaps just go heavier in 8-GW irons to give a little bit more control. Should I try maybe 125S? It seems to be the heavier version of 105S. It's over a 20 gram jump in weight, wonder if that's too much.
  2. thanks @Stuart_G!! Rather than BBGM, could I not just measure grip to hosel of currently installed shaft and add some factor for the part that goes into the hosel? Then compare to the grip to tip length that the seller tells me? (don't most shafts go into the iron head about 1" and some change?).. the seller just got back to me and told me they are out of "standard" Srixon zx7's. He did not give me a measurement though I asked. also, I forgot to mention that I did well with a 120S at a TM demo day, did not get to try the X-flex. I can get all the shafts for about $150 and install price is not a factor (it's cheap and I have a lot of store credit at the shop).
  3. Anyone have any updates on Sandpiper? We're set to play late September, but I'm a bit worried. Thanks. @drewski24 can you report on wherever you played? I might need a backup or two. Thanks!
  4. I live right down the street from Pelican and used to play it a lot before pandemic enabled rack rate pricing (good for golf industry, bad for middle class SoCal golfers, it's bad here guys!) Both Pelican courses are great. Usually in great condition, resort golf, awesome views and ambiance. Oak Quarry is a good track, signature hole is memorable, but the conditioning is pretty crappy since the pandemic. The bunkers are awful. Pelican should be 2 to 2.5 times the price, I think it's easily worth 2x (it's also not in the boonies like Oak Quarry if you want to do stuff near the coast/beach cities). I've played Trump around 10x with deals on UnderPar. It's a place I take visitors because the views are great and the price is right with the vouchers. Very tough course though, nowhere to bail out on drives, and the greens are very hard to read IMO. I would maybe pay for those green reading apps if I were to play again.
  5. Hi all- I'm thinking to try a different shaft in my beloved 2018 Cobra ForgedTec irons. Current shafts are Modus3 105S +1/4". I recently went in for a fitting, was spec'd for Mizuno 921 Forged w/Project X 6.0. I've had these exact shafts in the past and they felt a little too stiff, but it was years ago and I have picked up some swing speed recently. On the write up, the fitter said my 7 iron club head speed was 91-94mph and carry was 170/175. 120-124mph ballspeed, 17-19 launch, 6000 spin. Image shows some of my fitting stats. I really like the Cobra heads, like the modus feel over the harsher project X. Thinking to pick up a set of shaft pulls 4-PW 120X and throw them into my 5-GW - so they would be soft-stepped once. I like the idea of 120X (120g) over 120S (114g) because I want to actually feel some weight difference compared to current 105S shafts (106.5g). Edit: Forgot to add that during a separate TM demo day, they found me pretty well in the 120S (I don't think we tried 120X). Why am I doing this? I'd like a little more weight, take away hooking miss, and hit the ball a higher (probably a little more spin would be good?). Questions: 1. I know there are no universal standard lengths, but I hope to play close to 'standard' specs or 1/4" long. What length info should I ask the seller? 2. Looks like Modus 105/120's are all .355 so I should be ok there right? 3. Overall does this make sense? I'll try in a 7 iron to see if I like it before doing all the clubs. Thanks in advance!
  6. hi guys, all I can say about the 59 deg shaft is that it's ACCRA SP. I never planned to use the shaft so never was concern to me. If you're planning to keep the shaft, there's probably some info about them on golfwrx forums. thanks.
  7. For your consideration 1. Miura wedges (the series is called New Wedge) - sourced these as backup for my current wedges but I'm going a different direction - I've realized I need more bounce on a lob wedge and my ocd-a$s requires matching haha- here's a site that lists the specs of New Wedge series). I had the 53 made for me from an authorized dealer, never touched a ball. I asked them to build +0.25. KBS Tour 120 S shaft. Grip is Lamkin, std. The 59 I sourced from eBay, appears to be in excellent condition, I've never hit a ball with it. ACCRA SP shaft, I don't know much about the shaft as I was planning to throw another KBS shaft in, and a Miura grip. Not looking to split at the moment, just trying to get some money back. SOLD 2. Garmin Approach G80 Bought refurbished via a seller on eBay and used under 10 times. I hate practicing. Really perfect except for a blemish is on the back cover where I removed my name/ph number using a dry erase marker, so there is a little blue smear. Does not affect anything obviously and you'll probably be covering the back with the case (included) as I did. SOLD and going to Hawaii @TJGolf55 Thanks for looking.
  8. Brand new full set of Callaway clubs, Odyssey White Hot 2 Ball putter, and Callaway cart bag (13 clubs total). Regular flex. TRADED.
  9. ah I think you're right. I had these irons too (the cb/mb combo). then i realized i suck and bought the forgedtec.
  10. Edit: I was wrong lol I'm surprised no one identified the exact iron already, but the black one appears to be the 2019 ForgedTec, I know (or think I know) because I have them. https://www.cobragolf.com/king-forged-tec-black-irons They are great irons, but they are pretty chunky. Can't imagine anyone playing blades (esp. Rickie's blades) and switching to these, except maybe in long irons. Dramatic change would be an understatement. But whatever you gotta do I guess. Hope to see they guy play some better golf soon either way.
  11. strange use case here, but what sunday bag (if any) would fit inside the pocket of a Titleist Mid Staff bag? I'd like to have it for the rare times I end up walking, and don't want extra clutter in my trunk.
  12. I went through TM’s warranty support and they responded the next day saying they will ship me a new driver. Expected ship date 5/22........ -_-;;;
