  1. On course testing Thursday. I took each one to the practice putting and chipping green and am pleased with the sound and performance of all.
  2. That is a great explanation thank you. Doesn’t seem as extreme as I figured. I’m assuming that’s why you do a ball hitting from the green backwards.
  3. Thanks, I was under the assumption that the added back spin on mishits turns to added sidespin
  4. I plan taking a sleeve of each to the practice area tomorrow and on course ball test Thursday, my question is more in regards to Driver Spin, with a higher spinning ball such as the Chrome soft create more side spin on driver miss hits.
  5. Sorry to beat a dead horse here, I recently did the Ballnamic fitting and used Z-Star as my current ball. Was fitting to PRO V1 and Chrome Soft X. I also have been following the mygolf spy golf test that shows the X to have over 3k spin with driver on high swing speed vs PRO V1 an Z-Star. My question is as follows, does that 300 RPM more on drivers spin make the miss hits with driver more polarizing? or is it negligible. I struggle with big misses with the big stick that I am working on, I was very impressed with the green side spin and iron spin of the Chrome soft X but concerned with miss hits. I plan a ball test this week outdoors as my Mevo has had difficulties picking up my ball indoors.
  6. Hello all, I recently found 6 unused 56• Scratch Golf Wedges in a variety of finishes. These have been in my garage for a few years so I cleaned them up the best I could. If you are not familiar with Scratch Golf, they existed a few years back and made some really beautiful forging from Japan. I am just looking to sell to fund my golf addiction. Not really sure the street value but I am open to the following. Individual: $80 per wedge All Six: $450 Colors available: Copper Chrome Black Raw Satin Nickel please see all pictures
  7. Had my Putter Fitting. It was a very cool experience. I highly recommend you take advantage of the free putter fittings for September. Went with a Sik Flo can't wait to get it out on the course!!
  8. I go to club champion for a fitting. The Sik putters are on my radar. I will let you all know how it goes.

  10. Hello All!! I am getting back in the game after being off for a while! Technology has certainly advanced!! I was a 7 handicap when I consistently played with Driver Club Head Speed in the 120 Range. I was fit by the TMAG Vault 10 years ago to a R7 Limited 8.5 with a Accra SE80* Shaft which had extremely low torque and a soft tip which was extremely uncommon. I have been starting to play again for the last 7 months and while I am certainly rusty, my distance and ball striking is still there. I can't say the same for my short game! I know driver technology has changed dramatically. Should I be looking for a comparable shaft? or will the new more advanced heads warrant a different type. PS I would like to avoid an up charge Taylor Made shaft. Thanks for the feedback!!
