  1. Same here - ordered an F9 driver, called customer service and they overnighted it to me as soon as it was built. Took about 3.5 weeks to get it
  2. So I decided to try out the Stitch SL1 thinking mine wouldnt rip like all the stories I have seen. I was wrong, but this isnt a thread to bash Stitch. Thinking about replacing it with a Ping L8 2020 bag and havent seen a ton of reviews on here. Wondering if anyone has experience with it walking? I found the thread below and the comments make sense, but wanted to see if there were any WRXers that would defend this bag? I like the single strap, just trying to see if the slippery strap was universally felt. https://forums.golfwrx.com/discussion/comment/19351994
  3. Ended up going with an F9 - Cobra Golf has it marked down to $250 on their site and are still allowing custom spec orders. Picked up the exact set up I want and grabbed an extra weight for the bottom for under $300.
  4. Based on the last two comments, I think the Collegiate is perfect. I am single with no kids so no extra cargo for my golf trips. Looking to basically fit shoes and maybe a jacket or two. I also currently have the Stitch SL1 golf bag and that is a pretty small bag. For markings, I am going to order it through my pro shop and get my club logo thrown on there. Maybe add a couple patches. Thanks all for the help!
  5. Curious for the opinion of any owners out there. I have a carry bag, dont see myself every owning anything bigger than a hoofer. Should I get the large or the collegiate? I used a collegiate a long time ago and dont remember any concerns around size. Wanted to see if there were any large owners out there that thought it was too big. Thanks!
  6. Agree with all three of you calling for me to contact customer service, my backup driver broke on the range today (stopped hitting range balls with my M2, guess that is validated now). The top line where the crown meets the clubface is buckling on my M2 (to the point you can feel it) so I am not sure what the solve is. Its not a visible crack but you can see/feel the paint is raised.
  7. I actually had the F9 towards the top of my list. I have hit it and really like the sound and feel. Good info on the quantitative comparison
  8. Club head is starting to crack on the crown. Not sure what to replace it with. Obviously I can go get a newer conditioned same head, but thought I might see what else is out there. Anyone replace a 2016 M2 lately? Or find something else they loved more? Was thinking Callaway Rogue, but not sure if the sub zero or regular is more comparable.

  10. Are there any reliable retailers for the linksmaster? Did yall just go through your club?
  11. I think it is less about swing speed here and more about swing type. I hit a big high moon ball naturally, so with modern fairway woods that are designed to add on to that the ball has that knuckling "never falls out of the air" tendency. Its not terribly different to the bermuda flyer phenomena where a PW can go almost the same distance as an 8i from the same lie, because without creating the correct spin conditions irons the difference in irons becomes less noticeable. Also 115 is my normal on course speed, I top out at 120, but to your point, not here to brag. That being said, obviously th
  12. Yeah I have a rogue sz 5 wood and it spins a pretty good bit. To be fair, some of it is the shaft, but the club head has caused me trouble. I have the same problem with tmade woods for whatever reason. Ping and Titleist I have always been able to control flight/spin a lot better.
  13. Callaway spins a lot usually, so I have veered away in the past. Didnt love the look rounded off topline of the face in the past. A little gun shy of another anser after the first experience. Also I am a club ho who wants to try new things haha Any era is fine, was mostly curious to see what other people out there think. The guys I play with all use modern tech. I should have prefaced my OG post that this is more of an opinion sharing post. See who/what else is out there
  14. Didnt see it mentioned earlier, but fourteen has a good looking wedge. Very straight hozel into the heel of the club with no offset. At address it feels like there is no where the wedge can go but under the ball. A little rounder toe and top line can be a turn off for some however. Easy company to work with
  15. Trying to get my hands on an F9 Tour 4-5 and crank it down to the 16* neighborhood. Peanut head and low launch off the face.
  16. lol not going to lie, the idea of intentionally hitting something off center made me laugh. "I think I am going to hit a little toe hook around these trees" I do all of these things, but I guess more what I am trying to say (poorly worded) is who else has changed back. The launch that new fairways are built for is high and low spin and I was curious what else people out there were doing with their 3 wood to combat this. I am a club ho at heart, so I wanted to see what else people were doing in the world of tinkering. I already grip down/play shorter clubs as it is. My release pattern is steep
  17. You can pick up a Ping Anser 3 wood for <$100 on the bay. Great value club that hits low spin rockets. I have the hooks with anything Tmade but had great luck with this.
  18. I gamed a Ping Anser until a ball went through the face, and ever since I have had trouble keeping modern 3 woods from launching into orbit, anyone else wish we could change back? Scotty Schefler still games/d a Nike Vr Pro and when asked about it he said, "Yeah I just cant get rid of it. New ones go too far, so to combat that they will add loft which puts it in a different window that I dont want." Any recommendations out there? I am in the 115 range for driver SS and have no problem getting the ball up in the air. Not loving the high launch - low spin craze that has taken over. Shafts/heads
  19. My SS is in the 115 range, and I use the Recoil 125 Proto F5 tipped 1" vs normal trimming. Play standard prep C Taper 130x in irons, pretty high ball hitter. Club head is a Nike Vapor Pro 3i for reference. I will say it is a little on the softer side, mostly in the mid section. I like it because I helps me add some feel and I am able to turn it over no problem. I have a medium-soft load at the top so its never been a problem of "too whippy". That being said, I can hit a spinny cut or hood it and hit a low knuckling draw off the tee. I really feel like it is an easy shaft to command the club wi
  20. +1 ^^^ Adding on, the T100 has a lot more bounce and camber than the blueprint will. The blueprint is probably the least amount of bounce that Ping has put on an iron since the S59 days imo, maybe even less than that. It 110% about how you deliver the club. As the guys at NCW say, "only about 2% of people actually hit the ball before the ground, so how the sole is interacting with the turf is everything." For me personally, I have a steep delivery (~~ -3 on Trackman) with a quick release and prefer to have lower bounce so that the club isn't fighting against the ground when it gets to the ball
  21. Played Mid Pines yesterday and could not agree with this more
  22. Not terribly far back, but just picked up an FT Tour with a PX 7.0 in it and have had a ton of fun with it. Anyone in the North Atlanta area looking to turn back the clock, go visit Trader Golf in Alpharetta on Hwy 9. Great clubs, great people, great prices.
  23. I havent hit the i500, but the 410 crossover is out of this world good. I hit one with a C taper lite (and I play C taper in my irons) and it was as good as a driving iron as I had hit. I bag the vapor fly pro (the Brooks 3i) right now, but if I had to switch I would go for the 410. I am high spin, high launch ball striker for reference. I found the Srixon felt more like a long iron replacement, slightly higher launch window with a steeper angle of decent where as the 410 felt more like a true driving iron/crossover. Thats not to say that you can hold a green with a 410, but that was just
  24. The newest Ping Crossover (410 maybe?) is a rocket as well. I play the C-Taper in my irons and hit a 2i with a C Taper Lite in it and it was incredible. Low-ish Spin, Low Launch, but the ball hung in the air really well.
