  1. Went from a m5 rocket to Sim2 rocket this spring and haven’t seen that at all. Club is definitely is an upgrade over the M5 and goes farther off the tee and on low misses off fairway.
  2. Brand new, never hit a ball or had a grip on it. Ventus Velecore Blue 6x Standard TM tipping (so 1”) Shaft length is ~45.5” so could play up to 46.5” in Sim drivers Bought through TM but was able to be fit again outside while waiting for club to arrive and needed the Ventus black instead. $Sold includes shipping CONUS.
  3. Clicgear makes a kids push cart made for smaller bags. Have you looked at those?
  4. Have some older but great clubs. I'm the original owner to all of them. All have been stored inside and haven't been used in a number of years. No dummy marks on any of the hybrids or woods. I have more photos I took but couldn't upload them all. Prices are firm as I'll be trading in whatever is left next Tuesday for golf store credit if they don't sell at these prices. Prices include shipping CONUS. If you buy multiple items I will reduce price slightly for reduced shipping costs. 1) Titleist 712U - 2 iron (18*) with S400 DG Tour Issue $Sold 2) Adams Idea Pro Black 18* with Project X HD2 92g 6.0 $Sold 3) Adams Idea Pro 18* with Aldila VS Proto 80-S $Sold 4) Titleist 910 D3 7.5* with Diamana ahina 72 x-stiff w/ headcover $Sold 5) Titleist 913 fd 15* with Aldila RIP 80 x-stiff w/ headcover $Sold 6) Bridgestone J38 15* with Motore F1 75 stiff 2/ headcover $50 7) Titleist 695 MB 2-PW with Rifle Flighted 6.0 (6 iron shaft broke so got replaced and they PURED it so shaft label is different), bag chatter with some wear on center heal. Standard length and loft. Picture below shows 6 iron. Either standard or slightly upright lie angle. Picture shows faces in order of 2-PW. $215 8-10) Cleveland CG15 Zip Grooves 52, 56, 60 all mid-bounce. DG S-400 shafts. Grooves are no longer USGA legal so they didn't get much use before I had to switch. But will be great to use winning money off your buddies. Will only sell as a set. $SOLD
  5. Played the last two days with my Sim2 9* with Ventus black 6x. Previously played M5 with hazardus yellow 6.5. The shaft is a big improvement itself. But I had played 1 round 2 weeks ago with the hazardus in the Sim2 before seeing my fitter to get a shaft figured out. Vs M5. Head felt more stable throughout. Was able to flight shots easier without getting spinny shots. Also toe misses flew farther. I had played same course 2 days prior so knew where to expect drives to go. Also played with friend who drives it same and games the Sim OG. Was pleasantly surprised on distance a few times on bad swings. Now with the Ventus black it’s even better. I like the feel and sound on it. Holds launch and spin better on bad swings. Shape seems identical to my M5 which I like. Had a few slight toe balls that seemed to draw a few yards and be perfect instead of being 15 yd pushes that I’d get before. I think that is shaft a lot as well. Excited to see what I can do with it once I play in temps over 50 degrees and ground isn’t so soft.
  6. same here. I used 10% off at Morton’s instead. Total of $121 for 4 dozen.
  7. Ventus black won both the driver and 3 wood spots for the year. These were close behind (used the fitters shaft not the Ventus below). Prices include shipping CONUS. PM me with any questions. 1) New, never hit Ventus Velecore Blue 6x. Will play up to 46.5" in TM drivers. Has yet to have a grip on it. Standard TM tipping (1"). $$SOLD. 2) Accra TZ5 Proto 75 M5 (x-stiff) tipped 0.5". Only used since the middle of last summer (~4 months with living in MN weather). Shaft length 41.75" . $$SOLD
  8. Played my first round Sunday with Sim2 9* playing at 8.25*. Replaced my M5 9* (at 8.25*) which I played the same course on Friday with. It was a new course for me on Friday. Same old shaft from M5. Head shapes look pretty identical. Sim2 felt way better off the face overall. Flight was better, especially on off center hits. Was pleasantly surprised a few times on how far misses went compared to my playing partner who hit it drive well. I also thought it was easier to flight the ball which surprised me. Maybe bc face is more forgiving with maintaining lower spin it made those shots seem easier? Sound and feel were great. Very happy with it. Seeing my fitter/club builder Tuesday so will have some actual numbers to compare and to get a new shaft dialed in. I’ve been gaming the Hazardus yellow 6.5 which has been decent for me but noticed I had too many shots hit dead center with 2800 rpm when hitting on trackman throughout the winter multiple times. It confirmed what I saw last year on the course.
  9. Brand new, still in the plastic and has never been hit before. I thought I'd play the Max this year but was able to hit demo clubs of both Sim2 Max and Sim2 this weekend at my club before unwrapping it and decided to buy a Sim2 from the BST instead. Both were great clubs but I'm always looking for those few extra yards. Sim2 Max 9* head and headcover only $Sold shipped CONUS
  10. Another option for her is Ping Prodi G junior clubs. I had my 55 year old Mom get those and she really likes them. Getting a second set so she can leave them in AZ for winters. Cheaper than normal adult clubs too but great for her swing speed and ability. You buy them individually too so easy to pick your exactly what you want. The woods and hybrids we just got callaway with ladies flex shafts.
  11. Awesome. Was hoping they’d do this again. Just finished my last box at the end of the fall.
  12. I have the 790s and wanted to get 770s for 9 & PW but the long wait has me wondering what to do. My c-taper 130x show June so could just re-shaft myself but I wanted to try side by side. Going in soon to my fitter/builder to fine tune Sim2 driver so we’ll see his thoughts. What did you like better over the 790s? My worry is the launch will be higher even if I match lofts of my 790s as I hit a high ball. I find 790s workability fine just want to have something smaller for 3/4 9i and PW shots I like to hit.
  13. Brand new, still in the plastic and never hit. Sim2 Max 9.0 Comes with headcover and wrench $Sold OBRO shipped CONUS
  14. I'm a few weeks late of writing up my thoughts on my last trip. I played Sterling Grove twice in February (18th and 20th) on my second trip to AZ this winter. I played 36 at Verrado Victory on Friday and then 18 at Vistancia that trip as well in the afternoon after SG morning round. I was also not a fan of the green complexes. It made for so many locations on the green unplayable and unusable. The second round was somewhat more enjoyable in the sense of knowing what some of the greens had going on. But there were too many greens that did not fit the approach shot in (long par 3s or 4s having severe slopes, etc). And I don't think it had anything to do with new greens since they weren't overly firm. It made me appreciate and enjoy Vistancia a lot more since the greens at Vistancia play so flat but have tough deep bunkers around the greens it keeps it challenging. I felt like SG you just couldn't get rewarded hitting mid to long irons to 20'. The course was in an overall great shape. Greens were patchy in certain areas but had no affect on play. It will be in pristine condition I imagine in a year or two. Much nicer turf conditions than Verrado, greener and lusher. Vistancia is just as green but just not nearly as tight as fairways or the same level of course. I liked how it was mowed tight around the greens a lot which did give options. But not something I'd enjoy playing consistently or with any wind. It's too far away from the mountains compared to Verrado that it doesn't add much visually. Right now it's flat leveled dirt around much of the course so it's pretty ugly. Almost enjoyed the few holes with houses more. Shorter par 4s were fun. Played tips and they had good bunkering off the tees on a few holes. Especially a few par 5s that were reachable they placed them in perfect landing areas. I liked the back nine layout much better but overall not a course I would tell anyone you need to go play. I played it two mornings because at that time getting $85+tax for a first group out as a single was worth it. Paired with other guys who were enjoyable and we played in 3.5 hours first day and 3.25 second day. I'm sure I'll play it again as it's close to my parents house and I'll have cheap access through my home club membership. So hopefully as I play it more I'll know the green complexes more and that'll make the golf part better. Still not a visually appealing course to me and that is something I enjoy most about golf. Tough part about AZ golf is so many courses are surrounded by flat land filled with housing. But you can't beat the weather.
