  1. Glad you pointed this out. I agree with what @MrHateCoffee commented in that what you're seeing is people's excitement from early success (myself included). I think this happens because parts of this concept can legitimately give you instant improvement when you focus on 1 or 2 things. The reality is that bad swing habits come back so quickly and I'm speaking from experience. In one of the vids Monte did with Brendon's Be Better Golf series, he said that even he still occasionally fights the urge to pull the handle of the club toward the ball in the down swing I'm willing to bet th
  2. I know you're probably well-aware of this option, but you might look to the TS4? Based on what I've been hearing, the TSi3 will likely do the trick for you w/ more forgiveness. Just wanted to shout out the TS4, as it has been great for me since starting to play it at the end of this season.
  3. @ChipNRun I've come across the same thing with some other hybrids. More often than not I line up w/ that leading edge square or slightly open
  4. Yep, I went with the exact same shaft. For a long time, I played a 22* hybrid w/ graphite as a 3i replacement that was an inch over my set 4i. I loved the hybrid (still have it as a back-up), but from a gapping perspective, I struggled a bit trust the distance when I needed to take some off of it. More often than not I was hitting it further than I'd like creating a new mini gap. I could have maybe cut the shaft down a bit, added weight to the head to dial it in, but I wasn't so sure I could make that work. I'm not knocking hybrids w/ graphite at all -- if you can dial
  5. Thanks for the reply! I'm going to give it a whirl. I was able to land one relatively cheap on eBay. Now just deciding between 2 heads to fit it with
  6. I just picked up a 22* one of these late this season! It's the 2014 version, but I would imagine they are similar. I don't want to completely steer you from looking at a different type of hybrid or utility iron. Lots of good ones out there and you can do the same thing where you fit one of those heads with your preferred iron shaft and get the lie angle just right. BUT, I think the Fli-Hi direct replacement is a great buy and works exactly as advertised... if you have any specific questions about it, let me know
  7. Love that Baby Bee! I have the Hogan 'Baby Ben' version and put it back in the bag this past season. Great stuff, GLWS and the surgery!
  8. I just got the set in from Golfworks. I just went for it as they are "13 for the price of 9" at the moment. I can already tell they will be solid. I'll have to mess with tape layers a bit to get the right size, as I normally play midsize or standard w/ a good # of wraps
  9. Hi guys. I've read through the whole thread and appreciate some good info on these shafts. I'm wondering if someone can give a sense of comparison between the original NV green and the 15th anniversary NV green. Looking at the spec sheet, it looks like the 15th anny comes out to be slightly lower in torque w/ a bit higher kick pt. I have an original NV 85X in a driver playing about 1 or 1.5" shorter than stock length. It has been a favorite club and 'old reliable' for me. I'm looking at trying the 15th anny in another head and think it could be great, but I'm a little worried that
  10. I'm sad that snow is here in MN, because I was just getting started with this concept and seeing some awesome improvement. It's actually been so good that I've needed to keep reminding myself to be patient. I'm too eager to have the changes be permanent, while we all know it takes time. To help with this, I've been trying to spend a lot of time with a 7 or 8-iron hitting it about 60%. I forget which video it was featured in, but I think this was Monte's suggestion when working through any swing change.
  11. Thanks for the feedback and good to know on the UTx/Crossline comparison. Looking forward to trying them out.
  12. I'm curious about this shaft as well. Interested in it as an option for another hybrid
  13. Thanks! Glad to hear they're working out for you. I've been reading that they have less taper, which I prefer and that way I don't feel like I have to be as precise adding progressive tape to the lower hand.
  14. Did you ever end up giving these a try? Really curious about them vs. offerings from GP and Lamkin
  15. I can definitely see (and feel) getting tense with that move. A little more repetition should help alleviate this and make things a bit more fluid. I don't want to overcomplicate things for you (so feel free to ignore this as you work on 1 piece at a time), but one part of the lesson that seems to help me in getting from cast A to the impact is feeling that lead knee flex/back knee lose a little flex, which is discussed in "backswing B" and the transition. With this in mind during the drills, I feel like it's a little more fluid/natural to then turn through to that good impact pos
