  1. I bought my Titleist 755's in 2006. Used them until early 2020. They helped me get my handicap from 18 to 6, and back to 11. I ended up putting KBS Tour 120S shafts in them to replace the DGS300's they came with. They're still hanging out in my spare room. I think they're wonderful irons and were somewhat overlooked at the time. Steve Stricker obviously still rates them, though!
  2. I spent an hour and a half getting fitted for a TSi driver. With the same shafts (we tried a few), I found the TSi2 to launch higher and spin more than the TSi3 in the same lofts. Nothing too crazy - not like the difference between the TS2 and TS3 - but noticeable and worth optimising. I can't remember launch and peak height figures but the TSi3 was about 500rpm less than the TSi2.
  3. Huh - that's interesting. I am sure they were removed from the wedge page. They definitely are not on the Australian version of the website and I am pretty sure they were not on the US version a few weeks ago when I checked to see if there was a full wedge spec/options list somewhere.
  4. Interestingly, the PM 19 wedges have just reappeared on Callaway's website.
  5. I swapped the stock 80/6.0 HZRDUS Smoke Black in my Titleist U510 for a 9X Ventus Blue HB and it's totally changed the club. It's a fantastic combination. I haven't tried the Ventus Black HB, but have a gander at the Ventus HB thread and see if you like what you see.
  6. I have KBS Tour 120S in my T100 irons. They work really well for me (I like the high ball flight), but can get a bit spinny while going even higher - I'm not sure if it's those particular swings or if I'm just not noticing a headwind when I see the spinny flight. I'll investigate during my next iron fitting. I have HZRDUS Smoke Black RDX 60/6.5 in my TSi3 and Ventus Blue 9X in my utility. I had success with the EvenFlow White 60/6.5 in my older TS2 driver last year, but it was about 1200rpm higher than the RDX when put in my TSi3 during the fitting this year. It's good for days whe
  7. They could tease us a bit - otherwise, why would we wait? I know they're not the same but there are a few high toe wedges around these days... I don't understand the whole secret-until-launch thing. It's not like their competitors need a release in order to make a similar product, and as a customer, I'd be more inclined to spend my money with the company that has made the gear I already know and love - so let us know it's coming, and I'll wait. Or I'll just buy Cleveland or TM or whatever.
  8. That sounds promising. I don't need to upgrade, buuuuuut....
  9. The main thing for me isn't so much that the fairways would cost me shots, it's that I don't need distance and the U510 gives me a lot more versatility. I've always found fairway to be a one trick pony but I have a lot more shots with a utility. Maybe I just haven't figured out how to hit them with the fairways - not sure. But I can do a lot with the utility, and since changing to the Ventus Blue, I've really pared down the dispersion.
  10. I have a driver, 1 iron utility, 3 iron, 4 iron, etc... I haven't carried a fairway wood for years and the utility works much better for me than any of the hybrids I've carried. I haven't missed the fairways at all.
  11. Hey, at least it's on the back of the club here in Australia. I don't know why the Kiwi version has it on the face...??!
  12. Huh. I missed that - interesting that it's the only one they skip. I'd go 60 and make it weak, but it depends what you're looking for regarding offset and bounce and so on.
  13. Thank you - that looks really good. Here's two pages from the Cleveland Australia website: https://www.clevelandgolf.com.au/en_AU/rtx-full-face.html - has the marketing https://www.clevelandgolf.com.au/en_AU/clubs/men's-golf-clubs/wedges/rtx-full-face-tour-satin-wedge/MRTXFFTS.html - has the specs It looks like they come in 2 degree increments from 50 to 64, 9 degrees bounce, C grind, TTDG Spinner shafts, D4 or D5 swingweight, but lefties only get 54, 56, 58, and 60 degrees. I can't wait to try these out. I ordered a new Callaway 52 degree w
  14. Is it a high toe full face? It's hard to tell without another club to compare with.
  15. I think I'd stick with my 3 iron or 1 utility plan. 255 yards is about 233m, and Arccos tells me that my 1 utility has a "smart distance" off the tee of 231m, so I'd stick with that. Or I'd lay up with an iron... which I'd ordinarily never even think about doing on a par 3! The reality is I'd be
