  1. I've worn Ecco's in the past. Just bought a pair of G3's online. The site indicated that they were medium, but there's nothing on the box or shoes that indicate medium width. Is this normal for Ecco's. Maybe they only indicate wide and x-wide?
  2. Saw some base layer at Costco yesterday made by Avalanche. Looks like decent quality, but wasn't cheap. Anyone tried it?
  3. No experience (yet) with the TSi3. Only imput I can give you is on the performance and sound of the TS3. The TS3 is a great driver. It's plenty long enough, and very easy to control. Can't see much to be gained in the distance department even for strong swingers. The only issue I have with it is the sound. Not sure just how important sound is to you, but for me it's an issue. The TS3 is fairly loud and metallic sounding. Not annoyingly so, but if you're the muted type like me, than it will be loud. Also, a bigger footprint. It's 460 and looks 460. I actually much pref
  4. Only 1 item I'm considering for '21, and that's a TSi3. Nothing else excites me at all.
  5. I would admit the same. Both are great performers, but I prefer my u65 over the u85 as well. Not sure why I tried to upgrade such a great club.
  6. Love the look of the D7 forged, but don't see a reason to depart from my C300 forged. Just not enough of an upgrade, if at all. The C300 forged are fantastic irons, if you don't mind something a little less current and much cheaper.
  7. Couldn't agree more. I think I'm my own worst enemy in this case. I give people the benefit of the doubt, and it usually works out well. Just the few times that it comes back to bite you that can leave you soured.
  8. Thanks for the tips. I did make sure to keep the epoxy indoors, and let the shaft/adapter cure indoors as well. Didn't think it would affect the solvent though? I've been asked by a couple of other guys at work this week to do some club work, but I told them both to call in the Spring. Best part of it all is, I usually don't like to talk about a fee for repair work, and just leave it up to the discretion of the individual. They are mostly co-workers and friends that hit me up. Usually works out pretty well. I've been handed everything from a case of beer, to a bottle to cash. Not
  9. A buddy at work asked me to put a new shaft in his TM M2(2016) driver. He chose a pro launch red 65 XS. I pulled the adapter and installed it on the new shaft, butt trimmed it to length, and finally proceeded to put the grip on. The grip is a GP tour velvet cord. I do all my club repair/work outside in my shed. Live in the northeast, so temperatures this week have been hovering around 25 degrees. First problem, couldn't get the tape to stick. It felt like plain paper. I used a heat gun to warm it, but it kept cooling down too fast. Finally, I got it to stick enough, but while trying to push th
  10. The hardest club for me to find to suit me perfectly has been a hybrid. Last year, I finally found the perfect one for me, and don't think I will ever make another change. The Titleist 818h2.
  11. Currently playing the C300 forged. The D7's look great, but I just don't see a whole lot more going on with the D7's to warrant a change. That goes for a lot of gear nowadays I suppose.
  12. I'm getting old and feeling the cold much more now. This year I went with base layer for legs. First time with this, and couldn't believe the difference it made. DIdn't want to invest much as an experiment so bought a Costco brand for $17. Highly recommend this route.
  13. As for your wife, I would say your/her plan is a good one. Sounds like she simply needs a driver with more loft and launch. Your lesson pro generates a ton of SS. Therefore, he could easily get by without a 3 wood. His needs aren't really comparable to the average player with a moderate or less SS. Just to clarify, I wasn't trying to debate whether a 4/5 wood is easier to hit than a 3 wood. For most it is, just that if someone struggles with 3 wood off the deck, it's more a swing issue than difficulty. If someone feels a 5 wood is a better alternative and they're happ
  14. Haven't hit the TSi3, but can't imagine that there's more to gain over the TS3, or even the 917d3 for that matter. Only thing that will get me interested is the improved sound. Also, for the price, not getting a wrench is really cheesy. Might as well leave the headcover out as well.
  15. Well, I suppose it's a flawed swing characteristic. As for 4 wood being a better choice, I might agree with that for certain players. I've also seen "certain" players hit a 5 wood longer than their drivers. Once again, I would contend that it boils down to a swing issue, and to some degree confidence. Just because you hit your wedge consistently better than your 3 iron, does that mean you shouldn't carry a 3 iron, and just hit a wedge all day? Nothing wrong with playing what you feel comfortable with. Totally depends on the individual.
