  1. > @JDMRN81 said: > I pretty positive the cup face tech is only in the 3-8i (pro version 3-7i). Ah hah! That must be it. Didn’t realize not all irons have cupface technology. Thanks JDMRN81!
  2. Just noticed wondered why the difference. Ordered direct from Callaway. 5-8 i says “CF 19” on the hosel 9-AW says “19” Anyone else? Possible it’s because I ordered 5-8 with lie adjustments? Whereas 9-AW were standard?
  3. > @Stuart_G said: > To be honest, the material doesn't bother me but my biggest complaint about it is the fact that it reduces the length of the glue joint - less of the shaft tip actually gets glued to the metal of the ferrule. It's probably enough for a well done installation but not a lot of room for error. For Ping adapters, I personally prefer the CMX aftermarket adapters - all metal with no ferrule and also available with a +/-1.5* adjustment range as well as the 1* version. > https://www.billybobsgolf.com/product.php?productid=17945&cat=406&page=2 > Wow,
  4. ok, thanks for the feedback guys. Again, the plastic ferrule on these Ping adapter seem really flimsy and just couldn't imagine it actually adding any cushion. Guess I'll just have to be patient and wait for the new adapter to arrive. LOL
  5. Curious is the plastic ferrule is needed. I can understand for irons and such, ferrules are fairly solid and they serve a purpose but on the ping adapters, they seem really flimsy and cheap. Thanks
  6. Lightly used PXG XF 9* Gen2 driver with EvenFlow T1100 White $525 shipped. Shaft is 65 grams and stiff flex. Plays to 45”. No tipping done. Grip is stock PXG grip, virtually brand new. Comes with stock PXG brown headcover. Conus only. No trades please

  8. > @"Adam C" said: > Has anyone ever gone to Club Champion or True Spec and just gotten fit into a set of Dynamic Golds? I am wondering if that ever happens b/c it seems like every post like this I read has everyone getting fit into the most expensive, obscure, and most importantly non stock option. I am sure that is just a complete coincidence and I'm too cynical. > Weight is by far the most important spec in a shaft. By far. After that radial consistency (which isn't an issue with steel shafts), balance point (again not much of issue with steel shafts), then bend profile. Then torq
  9. Had my fitting at Club Champion about a month ago. Like you, 2019 Apex with Oban CT-100 (R+) gave me the best results which I found odd bc oban CT-100 are high launching shafts and I’m a high launch player to begin with. I think given that apex lofts are really strong, the Oban help get the ball up for optimal launch conditions. I ended up buying brand new Oban CT-100 shafts ($65 per shaft), I know, expensive shafts but given that this was my first iron fitting, I figure I suck it up and buy the equipment I was fit for (just not buying from CC). I ordered a new set of Apex irons ab

I don't see how it's even a decision if you didn't hit your own clubs in the fitting. Unless you are scratch, you will generally produce slightly different numbers day to
  11. ***SOLD*** PXG Aerotech Steelfiber i95 shaft pulls (3-PW) 8 shafts. Stiff flex. .370 tip. Plays to standard length. Should have a extra PXG grip in can install on the 6 iron. Never seen the course. Only took a few swings and pulled shafts. 200 shipped. Conus only. ***UPDATE*** Was able to pull a matching grip from a PXG driver and install. All shafts have same PXG grip. thanks.

  14. > @Ri_Redneck said: > You should use .355 ferrules with an outside diameter as large or larger than the OD of the hosel. Using .370 can lead to excessive creep up the shaft unless they are epoxied on really well. Remember that you also need shims for the shaft tips to ensure proper shaft fitting. > > BT Thanks BT. Where can I get these ferrules from? Looking at the ones they sell on golfworks, not sure if those will work, e.g. top diameter .355 to fit shaft but .370 collar diameter to fit the head. Have some shins ready to be ordered, just need to figure out the ferr
  15. Going to be reshafting some apex irons. Heads are .370”, shafts are .355”. Which size collared ferrules do I need? Thanks
  16. Wow. Thanks for sharing your stories guys. In CC’s defense, they had me try a ton of other shafts and heads (TM P790, Srixon 585, Mizuno, etc) but in the end, the Oban’s and Apex irons were the best.
  17. > @mxskier said: > As you can see from my profile, I went ahead and drank the kool-aid. Pro tip... they're going to offer to pure the Oban's. I said ok. I then read that they have something like 99.3% consistency, and that there is no reason to pure them. So save that money. > > @johnnybogey said: > > > @mxskier said: > > > Oban shafts are the real deal.

Ask yourself, what is more likely: for you to be comfortable with the PXG with the Oban, or just continual tinkering until you finally settle on what you were fit for? First thing I did after my fitting was search golfwrx for Oban steel. Like you, could not believe how many got put into Oban steel at club champion. But tbh, they gave me best results and they felt incredible. Kinda leaning toward buying the recommended setup
  19. > @gpleonard said: > Apex are great irons when your swing is on. Accurate and consistent. I have a set and do like them very much. That said I play Srixon Z 585 irons as they are a little more forgiving and long and straight. You will be very happy with the Apex CF19 irons I really believe. Thanks gpleonard. I’ve gamed both the original and cf16 irons in the past. Was really surprised the Maltby Playability rating was so low compared to the PXG irons.
  20. Had a fitting at Club Champion a few weeks ago. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to bring my irons with me (PXG Gen1 0311 with Recoil 95 Prototype) The new Callaway Apex irons with Oban CT100 were the best fit for me. Not sure if I want to drop that kind of money on a new set. Thinking maybe buy some Oban CT100 shafts, install into the PXG irons, adjust the loft to match the Callaway Apex irons. Any thoughts on that route? I do like the PXG irons for its forgiveness. Had no issues hitting the Apex irons but nice to have some forgiveness when the swing isn’t 100% on. Another part of

  23. > @cadman88 said: > Just to understand, the driver you were fit into, but didn't buy, and liked the feel of at Club Champion was a PXG with Tensei Pro White. The Tensei Pro White you bought on the BST with a TM adapter, removed the adapter put on a PXG adapter and butt cut it to your desired playing length into a different PXG driver head correct? > > Do you know the specs of the driver setup, swingweight, tipping you used at Club Champion?
