  1. Can you specify if the shafts are taper tip or parallel? Thanks.
  2. PLENTY of legit reasons to hurry up...all having to do with environmental or personal concerns where you're trying to sneak in a round, push the edge, darkness, weather, whatever. So - nobody stopped and skipped a couple of holes to get to a "sound bath yoga" class?? Didn't think so! Then again - I am divorced.
  3. Guy gets up super early one sunday morning and doesn't want to disturb his wife so he slides out of bed, gets dressed, and heads into the garage to put his sticks in the car to go play. But he opens the garage and it's howling wind, ice, sleet, snow, and he decides, forget it...gonna spend the morning in bed with his wife! So, he slides gently under the covers and caresses his wife's arm and says how horrible the weather is out there...an in a sleepy voice the wife says, "can you believe it? My husband is out playing golf in that!!"
  4. So the setup came out great. The stock shafts were way too soft, and the steelfiber 110 are really nice. I was playing TM p790 with xp115 s300 shafts, and the ball flight was high with a lot of spin. These, even in regular flex, are a little flatter and further (although this time of year when it's colder it's tough to get a good read). I HARD STEPPED the 110 in regular flex (one time), and for the wedges, I installed the 110 in stiff flex, and soft stepped them to about an 8 iron (1 1/2 steps). The feel is a lot lighter than the kbs tour shafts that were in there, but the feel is really n
  5. Indeed - only can see 2, but I have a 59 as well...
  6. Been trying to figure out what to do with parallel tip Steelfiber shafts when I got my hands on a set of PXG 0211 irons. I had 7 shafts that were “regular” flex 110, and 3 that were “stiff” 110. For the irons, I hard-stepped one (regular), and for the stiff shafts, I soft-stepped them 1 1-2 times for miura wedges. My swing speed was slowing down, so I ditched my p790’s that were fitted with xp115 s300’s, and so far, I think I found a sweet-spot! Went to range after I picked them up, and I am totally pleased with the setup. Sure, it’s the Indian and not the arrow, but I like what’s in the quive
  7. Hah! Hardly worth disturbing a round of golf. There comes a point in a relationship when one person doesn’t always have to do what the other wants...
  8. Not really a "pace of play" issue, but rather, playing ahead and skipping holes because someone in your group has an important meeting that turns out to be "sound bath yoga" with the wife... There's a coyote that lives off of the 7th hole where I play (a course set in a wildlife area along the river), and there are deer, turkeys, and lots of waterfowl around the course. The coyote avoids players and looks mangey and probably rabid, but he can be seen roaming the area looking for something to pounce on. Saw him hunt and then run down a squirrel - pretty spectacular... Also missed a green to
  9. Clint Eastwood once said, "a man's gotta know his limitations..." I need more loft. Picked this up from another WRX'er a while ago, but had to re-think things. So, here's what's up: Brand New, Never Hit, Gen 1 0811x Driver, 9*, Project X 65g Blue Stiff Shaft, PXG Lamkin grip Comes with PXG Leather Head Cover and Adjustment Torque Wrench. DISCLAIMER: I am not military, first responder, or otherwise eligible for the PXG "Heroes" program - I did not purchase this through that program or have any of the special discounts they offer. I am looking to get... SOLD!
  10. BUMMER! I sent an email to Lamkin asking about the perma-wrap. This was their response: "Sorry, the Perma Wrap line was discontinued awhile ago and we do not have any remaining inventory to offer you. Have you tried our latest wrap offering, Sonar Wrap? If interested, we can send you a sample. Please let us know." So, they're willing to send a sample...BFD. What about the grips that worked?
  11. I always preferred the density and texture of Lamkin Perma Wrap (in oversize, that came out to about what GP has as mid-size) to the wraps by other companies like GP whose wraps were always kind of sticky. And better than just the perma wrap was the half-cord perma wrap that was just ideal. I played them until I found GP MCC that had the density, feel, cord, texture, that was great for all conditions. BUT...I am bummed that Lamkin doesn't make the perma wrap any more, and doesn't make the half cord. Or do they? And are they around? I did a search and could not come up with anything.
