  1. I think the MCC is a good grip, but their lifespan is a letdown if you play often (even with washing them regularly). Do you play the regular Crossline or the cord version?
  2. These two are a close comparison in many ways and I'd argue that if you like one, you will like the other at least to some extent. They are almost interchangeable IMO. Crossline cords are slightly, slightly softer (still firm). They have a little less taper and are thicker overall being .58R. You can feel the cord a bit more on the surface with crosslines. Independent of the cord, they both have good texture, but Z-grip probably has a slight edge. I've played both and like both. I lean toward the Crossline because they are slightly softer and I find it easier to dial in
  3. This post alone has saved me. I've been planning to order one of the Billy Bob's weights specifically for the Super I'm sorry this happened and thank you for the warning!
  4. I've played with a KBS Tour in my 56* for quite a few years and have had no complaints. Spin/feel have been excellent. This year I'm actually going the opposite direction as you and I'm going to give DG a try across the board for wedges since I'm also switching to new irons shafts in the AMT X100. Will be curious to see how you like the 130X! I think with the higher balance point of that shaft, it could be a good transition if you're planning to play them a bit longer.
  5. I typically prefer something a little more compact, but these look fantastic. Wish I would have caught these sooner, as my money's already in on a different build for my next set
  6. I played UTx and tried a few others last season, most of which I really liked. Doing a bit of a reset this year and going crossline cord midsize on the full set
  7. Love this. I have the heel-shafted Baby Ben that I put back in the bag last season.
  8. I wouldn't say you're an outlier! My sense from reading this thread and having worked through the concepts tells me plenty of people are benefiting from the back swing pieces. I think it comes down to what your backswing has looked like prior to applying Monte's concepts For the longest time, I convinced myself that I didn't need to spend much time working on my backswing. I had committed to what felt natural and then focused on impact from there. My mind has completely changed on this... I recorded my swing DTL last year for the first time in a long time and it was extremely telli
  9. @hometeamdawg thank you for the alert on the Wosports deal! I've been using a GPS watch (S20) since last season and it has been perfect for what I need. However, I've wanted a rangefinder at least for certain situations and this was a great option.
  10. I hear you on the trial and error. I'm in the same spot usually going with +2 or 3 on the lower hand. Might still give one of these crossline plus a try on a wedge or something.
  11. Thanks for the response and yes that makes sense. It sounds like you've figured out that with your swing/release, a reduced-taper grip is not the way to go. Do you build up the lower hand on your standard crosslines?
  12. @jah7838 are you still using the Crossline Plus? Curious how they have held up over time and any long-term opinions. I've been playing UTx primarily but considering a switch.
  13. @RobYakes I agree with all of that on the 360 genesis cord. I picked up a few via eBay that were the TM MG2 red version. I typically like something firmer, but I've been impressed by them. Soft feel with plenty of traction. I'm holding out hope that Lamkin will bring them out in midsize though, as I feel like they are fairly skinny (unless this was just the MG2 version?)
  14. Have you used the Players Cord+ at all in the past? I'm interested in trying the TS1 midsize for comparison. I love the Players Cord+ but since they've only made them in standard, I find myself needing to add more wraps than I'd like to get to a good diameter in the upper hand. Curious how the TS1 mid would compare to this specifically
  15. I know I'm late on this, but I'm about 99% sure the grip on the P770s is a plus2 I asked GP if the Callaway version on their newest ranges was the same because I found a set of 8 pulls. They said the Callaway version was standard taper, but indicated that the Plus2 is used by TM. Too bad I had already bought the Callaway pulls before they responded
  16. playing 4 including the PW: 47, 52, 56, 60 - this has been the case for a long time I think if I played a little more aggressively on par 5s, I'd consider dropping one, but even so, I like having these options. With that being said, one of my goals/experiments for 2021 is to work on hitting a greater variety of shots with fewer clubs (which will definitely apply to the wedges).
  17. You have no idea how excited I am to read this I've made some huge strides with my swing recently and played some of my best golf ever this past season. Despite this, I still get in my head once in a while and question whether or not I would be better off committing to interlock or overlap. This isn't to say my grip can't improve, but it's fun to hear others have success w/ the 10 finger Also - same experience here getting a bit steep with wedges
  18. I'm in the long backswing boat, as well What has been most eye-opening to me are two things: how steep my backswing has been (and consequently, the downswing) and how cupped my lead wrist is (was) at the top of the backswing. Flattening out the lead wrist has been a very weird feeling to me, but I know it needs to happen so I'm really focusing on that. Two suggestions: If you haven't done so yet, record yourself from a couple of different angles. This may not be the case for everyone, but I was shocked at what I'm actually doing versus what I'm feeling.
  19. Would love to see this, as well. I picked up a few std size to try out and have been playing them w/ about 5 additional wraps. Solid grip. Still not sure they are my fave, but if I ultimately commit to a softer option they are a contender
  20. 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
  21. 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.
  22. @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
  23. 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
  24. 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
  25. 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
