  1. You are probably correct. I’ll have to see if I can wait patiently for the next i210 release, or to see if my eyes get the better of me with another release. Selfishly I wish they’d release them ASAP haha.
  2. I appreciate the defense of Ping and certainly 2020 has thrown everyone on the face of the Earth multiple curveballs. But hundreds of thousands if not millions of businesses have and are adapting. I can’t give a company the size of Ping a get out of jail free card on EVERYTHING “just because, ya know, 2020.” Surely there were some road bumps to address early on, but we aren’t seeing nearly the audibles out of these other brands. And let’s be completely honest here. Golf industry is coming out of this pandemic looking like roses and sunshine compared to some of these other markets
  3. Dang, I didn’t realize they were coming out with new Pros. I can’t wait for all the new irons to come out I’m 100% getting new ones. I love my current irons a ton but I’ve put so many rounds on them they’re reaching end of life already haha.
  4. Also, I am holding off on irons because I love the i210s and would buy them but the thought of a new version coming out after I pull the trigger is too much pain to risk. I’ll likely have a 425 LST and the newest iteration of the 210s this time next year... so please don’t mistake my previous comment as Ping bashing. I love ping!
  5. Your point is fair on the schedule. But let’s not inflate Ping’s standing in the market place. Their share of the market and annual revenue numbers are remedial at best when compared to TaylorMade, Callaway, and Titleist (Acushnet). Because they are private it’s tough to find their Net, and I imagine they are proportionally the same as their competitors, but to frame it as if people flock to them and that they couldn’t benefit from taking up some of their competitors market is just not true. Honestly, they probably understand they won’t be able to effectively do that without dumping an obscene
  6. Not trying to stir the pot, genuinely asking: Are we 100% that the ZX5s have a badge, and that its not just part of the club?
  7. Going to be difficult without IG. As far as any of us can see this is the only place it’s publicly viewable.
  8. Looks are subjective, and unless they brought back Nike’s Sumo cube I doubt their sales are going to take a plunge for a dash of color. That said, I enjoy the looks, but curious why it seems that every weight is heel side, just varying degrees. Also, I want to stake an early claim that I bet this driver will have the most enjoyable sound of any driver ever made with all that carbon. All these people hating on the looks will quickly get over the blue in favor of that beautiful muted crack. I love my 410 LST and am leaning toward the 425 LST as a replacement, but I can’t say I haven’
  9. I certainly don’t know this for a fact, but just from an onlookers standpoint my guess is their focus early on into the NA market was to buy up market share. Easiest way to do that is create the lowest barrier to entry. 6 or 7 years into this ordeal, my guess is they feel their brand and product has been established and are looking to maintain their share of the market with likely increased margins. Again, I may be wayyy over my skis here and welcome someone who actually knows something to correct me (just be gentle please haha), but the long and short of my point is I’m not all th
  10. These irons will without question be great, but I actually want to acknowledge Srixon for the level of detail they provide on their website for consumers. The comparison chart at the bottom of each of the iron’s respective pages is top notch. While I am not the minister of all things golf equipment, I can’t remember such a well laid out and thorough product comparison to help a prospective consumer make an informed decision on set composition. Well done Srixon!
  11. @awtryau89 Great write up, and thanks for the information. If this is even close to 400 RPM reduction for me I’ll be on it out of the gate. The 410 LST set up has been the most reliable set up I’ve had since Gen2 M1. I honestly didn’t have any intention of putting a new big dog in the bag for ‘21... BUT if I can get rid of some RPMs I’m going to have to seriously consider it. Right now my course numbers are consistently at 2900-3000 RPM and 182-183 ball speed. I know a chunk of that spin is due to the amount of loft I deliver at impact, but if I can get some help from my equipment I would be e
  12. I’ve been away from you guys for quite a while, but I come back baring gifts! I’ve finally moved on from the Evnroll and the Ventus is too light after I went full BDC during quarantine this summer. Evnroll ER2 SOLD- Has 20g Counterweight in pistol grip. Also a couple strips of lead tape on the sole. Length: 34” Loft: 1* Lie: 70* Fujikura Ventus Black 6X Velocore SOLD - It’s basically brand new. Was built/installed by the fellas over at TrueSpec.

  13. I have a low bounce K 60* that I use for all my bunker shots. That said I’ve flipped some balls around greens with all kinds of face angle with the 56D and don’t seem to find any issues with it. To be fair the turf I play on out east is probably less firm than your north Texas hard pan so I may not be speaking apples to apples here.
  14. I just felt the need to bump this post because I love the Baffler so much. Clubs come and go, but this thing just stays right there in the bag all these years. I recently bought a slew of new clubs and debated switching to a hybrid or driving iron to fill the yardage gap of the ole F6 Baffler. It’s just so damn versatile I decided instead to hunt out a new head and get a different shaft. I put a Fuji Pro 2.0 TS in what was essentially a “NOS” head I got off eBay. She’s just such a joy to hit. Any lie, many yardages, high shot, low shot, doesn’t matter. That is all, just some love for an old fr
  15. Wedge spin is negligible differences these days and can be made up with playing the right ball in most cases anyways. Wedges are such a preference for each player. The grind and the visuals play the biggest role for my tastes followed by feel. Clean/new grooves will always spin more than enough for me personally, and as far as looks go the SM8s check every box. I made the switch to the D grind on the 56 this season, and I absolutely love it. That said, I also think Callaway’s wedge offerings are beautifully designed, and preform just as well as the SM8s.
  16. > @"Cottonseed." said: > Great pics. > Did you guys use a CR member to get on or utilize your own clubs pro? > In terms of exclusivity, it definitely ranks higher than your aforementioned comparisons (Streamsong, Pinehurst, Bandon). > Am I right in saying that? I would definitely agree with that. That being said, it wasn't terribly difficult for us to get on. We knew someone with a corporate membership, and worked our way in through that relationship. None of the guys, including myself, were members at a private course.
  17. Hey WRX Fam, I just wanted to provide a course review for a place that I haven't seen a ton about on this site or online for that matter. I recently had a gathering of life long buddies and we settled on a golf trip. 5 of the 7 are heavy golfers with the other 2 being pretty novice, but still enjoy getting out when they can. **Accommodations:** We were placed in the Bobby Jones house. This is right off the 9th fairway on the Creek 9 Holes. Upon pulling up we initially though the place looked small in size considering we would have 7 dudes in this place. However, upon inspecting the pl
  18. **Cobra King MB/CB 4-PW** * N.S. Pro Modus3 Tour 130 X-Stiff * Grips - MCC4+ Midsize w/ 2 Wraps (probably need replaced after this season) * 5 Iron Length - 37.75" * Swing Weight - D2 There is lead tape on a number of the heads to get the swing weight to exactly D2. If you would prefer the look of the iron to be clean I am happy to remove lead tape and it's residue prior to shipping. **SOLD** **Cobra F7 3-4 Hybrid** * Aldilla Tour Green ATX 105H - 2.0 Tour X-Stiff * Grips - MCC4+ Midsize w/ 2 Wraps (plenty of life left) * Length - 39.25" * Swing Weight
  19. Hey Lip, I hit the 760s and the Pro 19s back to back during a fitting - To me there was not a huge discrepancy, however, I personally felt the the 760's seemed a tad bit more "forgiving" in the looks department. As in the top line was a hairrrrr thicker, and honestly this could have just been the brushed (760) vs polished chrome (Pro 19s) and the way the light hit each. Also, I'm fairly certain there was more offset in the 760s and the blade length was a hair longer. Again, most of the difference in set up were very small aside from perhaps the offset, if that's something you're super sensi
  20. They just came in. Range session 5:30 PM sharp. It's going down!
  21. Just ordered my Pros from True Spec with $-Taper 130's. Can't wait to get them in the bag.
  22. Black metal will always wear. It doesn't matter what the marketing lingo is used to promote their particular type of finish. If you are worried about the finish go with the chrome. If you hate chrome get a different set of irons such as the Wilson V6 Raw.
  23. Just did my first ever full bag fitting, chose True Spec in my area. Went in wanting to hit everything, and no allegiance to any brand's flag. Definitely wanted to get away from my mega players clubs that I just can't get along with given the amount that I play. I probably was never good enough for them haha but I was at least able to move around the course well enough when I was playing and hitting balls multiple times a week. I honestly hadn't even looked into the Pro's, which happened to be the very first club we tested. The results were fantastic, so the fitter and I kind of just figured
