  1. All 13 of my grips are the same. More importantly, I check the butt diameter and taper of the different shafts in my bag and use build up tape to account for any differences. When installing the grips I use a micrometer in three places to maintain consistent size and stretch down. I fully realize I have a sickness and am not normal.
  2. 1. City and State? Fresno, California 2. Handicap? 0.2 3. Current irons? Srixon ZX7 4. Current Iron Shafts? KBS TGI 95 hs 1 x 5. What weight KBS PGI shafts would you like to test? (50G-100G). 100G 6. Do you agree to participate in an ongoing testing thread, posting reviews and photos? absolutely
  3. Three shoulder surgeries and elbow tendinitis mean I will never play steel again. I’ve got graphite in driver to putter and am playing the best golf of my life.
  4. I just got back two weeks ago. I really enjoyed the Dunes course. I thought it was the most difficult and had the most interesting holes. Yes it's public, although the condition wasn't terrible for a public course. If views are important to you (I could care less), there aren't any. I teed off really early, second group. I tried to get out in front of a twosome that was the first group off but they were locals and the started wasn't having it. It turned out that after the second hole, I never saw them again, even though I played by myself and was done in 2:45. Amongst all of the trips to Maui I have played Kaanapali, three Kapalua courses (back when they had three), Wailea courses, King Kamehameha, Maui Nui. As far as fun factor on the course, The Dunes at Maui Lani is at the top of the list.
  5. You have the very best in the Bay Area @joey3108 Joe Kwok. Google him to get his website and Instagram.
  6. I was concerned, but no, not at all. I think it helped that they swingweight to D2. In fact, I started to think after the switch I wasn’t as tired late in the round.
  7. They aren’t. I tested the 95 and 115 and there was plenty of meat on the bone to sand it down. It’s no big deal for an experienced club maker
  8. I was a KBS steel player and went down the road of testing MANY graphite shafts due to three shoulder surgeries and tendinitis in my elbow. I also tried Pro Soft inserts which did nothing for me. I played Steelfiber 110's and really disliked them. Feel was non-existent and like others have mentioned getting them to the right swingweight is difficult. I also tried MMT, Fuji Pro, PX Catalyst, Recoil 95, 110, and 780, there is probably others. For a little over the past year I have played KBS TGI 95 hardstepped one time. For me they are the best by far. Performance wise they are very similar to KBS Tour, I can feel the clubhead, getting them to D2 was easy, and the transition to 95 grams was not difficult.
  9. Maybe there will be an emergency blade shaming vaccine.
  10. I did. I had a Smoke Yellow in a TaylorMade M4 and went to a Radspeed with RDX Blue. I would say performance wise they are very similar, but the RDX Blue feels smoother. I tested a bunch of shafts with the Radspeed and was prepared to pay for any aftermarket shaft but the RDX Blue fit me best.
  11. Shafts are VERY subjective. For me, Blue RDX - Best LM numbers, really easy to load, effortless GD XC - Felt very boardy, didn’t know where the clubhead was AV White - Spun a lot, dispersion was all over the place, gave up on that one quickly
  12. Here’s a list that @Jota_Jota created. It should keep you busy for awhile.
  13. I have the 3.0s and I love them. Just bought another 56. Grooves were worn on the first one.
  14. The best three wood is the one that fits you best. After testing on the course and getting fit, the TSi 2 was the best for me. It may not be the best for you though.
  15. I have had three shoulder surgeries. I pushed a Clic Gear for the last 9 years at my club, which is a flat, easy walk. I got a great deal on a almost new Alphard and am absolutely amazed about how much better my shoulders feel after not pushing. I would have never thought that pushing a cart (which seems relatively benign) was detrimental to to my shoulders. Needless to say, I highly recommend it.
