  2. Best - My first ever properly fitted club - a Titleist TS2 driver w/ a Hzrdus Smoke 5.5 shaft (C3 setting, so up to 11.25° loft and slightly upright). I really should go do a full fitting for every club in my bag. Worst - I bought a Scotty Phantom 5.5 on a whim. It's 34" and otherwise standard setup. My old putter is a 33" Futura 5.5m 1° flat and it's the best club in my bag. Was pulling absolutely everything with the Phantom and switched back to the Futura.

    Cheers :) What kind of yardage gains did you get from the stronger lofted irons? I'd be curious to see the breakdown of distances per club in your bags relative to mine. I've been really eager to conduct this experiment and would love some reference data, especially from somebody whose bag makeup and distances are similar to mine!

    Hybrids

    I play off of 5.X and my bag looks like this: 11.25° Driver - 250 yards 16.5° Wood - 215 yards 19° Hybrid - 200 yards 23° Hybrid - 185 yards 27° Hybrid - 170 yards 26° 5 Iron - 160 yards 29.5° 6 Iron - 150 yards 33° 7 Iron - 140 yards 37° 8 Iron - 130 yards 41.5° 9 Iron - 115 yards 46° Specialized Wedge - 100 yards 53° Specialized Wedge - 75 yards 60° Specialized Wedge - Don't take full swings with it I am often 2-3 irons shorter than my playing partners and am contemplating toying around with getting some more strongly lofted irons, which would likely necessitate adding a club between my
  5. > @BiggErn said: > Lol. **So you don’t want to deal with headcovers but will invest time and money into putting a “film” on your club**s to protect the finish while they still can look beat all to ****? Yes, one night of putting film on to save the hassle of taking covers on/off every time I hit them, invariably losing them etc. And the idea is that the film will protect them from scratches that "beat them all to s***."
  6. To be clear, the film will be for the crown not the face.
  7. Update: [this is the first product](https://www.amazon.com/New-Edge-Sports-Protection-ClearShield/dp/B002ZQFU3Y "this is the first product") I've come across that may do the trick, although I worry that trimming the pieces may be tedious.
  8. Hi all, In addition to my putter, I have four clubs with headcovers in my bag (Driver, 3 Wood, 2 Hybrids). I get pretty sick of taking headcovers on/off during play. I'm wondering if anybody has ever tried clear film on the crown of their clubs instead of headcovers, similar to how 3M or XPel film is used to prevent stone chips on cars. I think this may be a clever solution and wanted to know if anybody has tried this or has an inkling of where to source this type of film. Cheers.
  9. Replaced my 3 iron (Mizuno MP18 Fli Hi) with a 23 degree hybrid (Titleist 816). That hybrid has become my go to club out of the rough or laying up on Par 5s.

This is almost me to a "tee: ;) My summary, with some stats directly from GHIN: Ugly driver trajectory (low pull fade), but ball makes it out there 220-250 and in the fairway 55% of the time Decent iron shot (low trajectory, the longer the club, the more fade-y), average 6.2 GIRs/rd, misses mostly short ri

  13. > @tekman said: > I'm in this same dilemma, which at this point is a nice to have problem I guess. > I have a two sets of Bridgestone X tour clubs, the CB and the Blades, same shafts in both sets. Love them both, no plans to get rid of anything. There are days where I play the blades or practice with them and days where I find hitting them to be a chore. The CB's on the other hand I'm much more consistent with day to day. So, for my game if I'm swinging it really well I'll play the blades. If I'm not, the CB's, also in poor weather, I play the CB's, just more forgiving. > A

For context, my handicap bounces around between 7-8. I have a garbage golf swing. My takeaway is flat/inside. I come in steep and over the top. I don't hit the ball far...at all (I hit a 5 iron 160 yards). My chipp
