  1. Also, the "utility" heads are 3 grams heavier. So, they are designed to have graphite shafts installed. As opposed to the standard weight t200s.
  2. Callaway Epic Flash Driver 9*, Graphite Design Tour AD-IZ 5s shaft Golf Pride MCC +4 grip (logo down) 45.5" length, d4 Swing weight Average condition, the usual scratches and marks from normal use. Adapter has been used on several shafts, so shows a bit of wear. ***SOLD***
  3. Callaway Epic Flash 3 Wood (15*) Head up for sale. I can probably throw on a shaft if needed, just let me know what weight/type. Decent condition, pics pretty much show what's up. SOLD
  4. The offset is minimal/negligible on both. As it is the same. Looks the same as the MB at address, to me. The soles are completely different on the new models, compared to the previous generation. Progressive bounce, basically. Less bounce on heel and trending to more bounce on the toe. Weakening lofts on the T100S sounds like a bad idea for turf interaction, and not necessary. Hit both the T100/T100S side by side the other day. Look and Feel were exactly the same. Which model just depends on what lofts you prefer for your optimal flight, to be honest.
  5. I have similar thoughts on this as well, ie., the grip being a big problem with regard to these "ultra-stable" shafts. Different grip compositions surely would alter the measurable amount of torque at the hand level, if there is even a way to measure that. And, if there is, it is most assuredly negligible at our level of perception. I like the idea behind these shafts. And, I like selling them to customers. But let's be honest, it is almost certainly BS when it comes down to it being an actual, measurable variable. But, placebo can certainly make one a better putter though.
  6. Same look and dimensions, but even more tungsten in T100s.
  7. try 2* stronger loft (28), and see how the results look. And, consider a ball change.
  8. I deal with this nonsense all day, everyday with customers. Anything you order; heads, shafts, grips, new release, current stock, etc etc. Custom fit, or worse, OEM orders. Expect it to take 8-10 weeks minimum. Probably longer. Set your expectations very low, regardless of what the OEM's tell you about delivery eta's. Maybe you'll be pleasantly surprised if it lands on your doorstep early. People need to chill. It's just golf clubs, and none of us here make a living swinging em.
  9. Offset is minimal at standard loft. No need to bend it out/less.
  10. No pics allowed yet, as far as I know. The regular finish is more satin, definitely not shiny. Pretty ideal look, to be honest.
  11. Ht the black 50.09 quite a bit the last two days. Feels exceptional, and really looks good. I've never been a fan of black wedges, but with the raw face it's not really an issue. Hit the 54.11? (I think) in normal finish too, was pretty good. Seems like the higher bounce versions weren't as great a feel to me, same with a 56. But I'm sure different swing types will have different feel/results. Just wasn't as enamored with it as the much as the 50. They definitely feel and look way better than the new Jaws Full Toe wedges. Although, I only have access to the 56 and 60 so far.
  12. Hit the T100, 200, 300 quite a bit last night at work. The T100 absolutely is an improvement in feel from the previous version, which was very good too. No, it doesn't feel like a MP20. It feels more dense/firm at impact, in a really good way. Looks like the 620 at address, just a different/satin finish. Pretty confident this will be the best selling players iron for the next year or so. The T200 is probably the best looking hollow bodied club I've seen yet. It feels really good, but definitely still has a hollow/clicky feel, as they all do. Feels much better than 790/770, and way better than the Mizuno HMB (which isn't hard to do). What is most impressing is the look at address. Everything is right. Minimal offset, small blade length. Pretty much ideal. Ball speed was great, but not a ton higher than T100 for me. Workability seemed solid too. They will sell a ton of these. T300. Meh. Decent shape to it, and big improvement over previous one. Feels mediocre, but about what anyone would expect from this category of irons. Players fitting into this iron probably wont care about feel. More offset, obviously. That aside. In the few fittings I've done with it, it has out performed the Apex DCB almost every time. Which isn't easy to do.
  13. Sloppy work indeed. But, you are asking them to bend/tweak something that is somewhat soft anyway. You should expect some markings. Granted, these look a bit severe. But, another 10 rounds with those irons and you probably won't be able to see anything. There is zero chance you will get any new equipment through a warranty or anything like that, so don't even bother going down that road with them. Tell them you're pissed about it and maybe they'll give you a dozen free balls and pay your tab at the bar. They are just irons, you'll be fine. Get over it.
  14. would lean towards Elevate as well, and maybe try Steelfiber FC i80s if you can test them.
  15. You are fine at D5/D6 range then. Worry less about hitting an exact SW value, and more on feel/performance.
  16. Go for an actual iron fitting somewhere, and then just match the wedges, maybe a SW or two higher. Keep it simple.
  17. They are really nice clubs, and look/feel a bit better than the 505 to me. Could just be in my head though. I'd say they perform on par with most other recent OEM releases, except maybe the Apex. That one is hard to beat. But, they definitely feel way better. Similar could be the Miura Pi401, but I like the 506 a bit more. Ball speed is great with either. Now whether the slightly better look and feel is worth twice the price of almost any other head produced... not so sure.
  18. Saw these in person today. My impressions: T100 - absolutely one of the best looking irons I've seen in a long time. Compared it next to the 620 MB and there is not a whole lot of difference at address. The MB topline is slightly thinner, but not by much. Offset is negligible between the two. Blade length/size looked identical to me. The satin finish looks way better than previous polished model. An even more dense tungsten in toe and heel, and more of it. 8-PW has none, basically blades. These will be hard to beat I think . T100s - didn't get to see it. Rep explained it is a slightly different design than T100. About 10 grams more tungsten in toe and heel, and an elastomer (I think he said?) type covering above it, but not visible. Looks exactly the same as T100 though. T200 - drastic improvement in looks over the previous. At address, it looks great. Minimal offset, small and compact, not chunky at all. Can see a lot of people playing these in the longer irons (1i,2i, 3i). U505 - looked ok to me, compact, shorter blade height than previous models, but can definitely see the back of the club a lot at address. Not a huge fan. T200 in longer versions may be better, at least in looks.
  19. MMC's are plenty forgiving. The HMB's are a complete failure, performance-wise, compared to any other Mizuno release. Anyone that "fit" into them is likely better off in the HM Pros, or Forged. I love Mizuno irons, and have since high school. But those HMB's... are s***. I expect a much improved version with the 22's. Not hard to make something better, actually.
  20. Most likely a wedge. No MP-22 irons til after the new year probably.
  21. Could always try and warranty it, if you haven't tip trimmed it already.
