  1. Used it for quite a long time before I started alternating it with another. The jumbo grip I put on it didn't work out so well and that led to alternating it with a PXG Bat Attack and Odyssey 10, recently. The spider itsy bitsy really fits my stroke and inside of 15 feet it is still the best putter I've had. Great for a straight back and thru stroke especially inside 8 feet. Sometimes a bit too small/light for long lag putting but my "claw" grip may contribute to distance control when outside, say, 30 feet. Overall, I find it has a slightly better balance and feels more solid than the "
  2. It's long with lots of carry, but more importantly it is probably the best all purpose fairway I've had and that includes a lot of the TEE's. It doesn't seem to force swing adjustments to offset launch or spin issue issues that most other fairways have had for my mid-low launch swing. I was playing strong 3w and 5w but with the TS2 16.5 the M6 14* is out of the bag and now I'm thinking of replacing the 5w with a TS2 7w .
  3. I played the regular 2.0 50g in an M5 Tour most of last year. I was very pleased with the overall playability but like everything "it's only good if it's a good fit for your swing". This year I plan to test the 2.0 50 against the 2.0 60g to see how weight difference affects launch/spin in particular. But I'm happy with the 50g weight. Overall: the 50g was surprisingly easy to swing, and easy to load. Coupled with the 435cc head, played at 9* neutral, weights set neutral moved forward, it launched mid-high with a fairly boring trajectory. I'm not a high-ball hitter but the Fuji must fit
  4. Similar experience ... I'm playing the 17* lofted down to 16* draw setting. I've played it in the stock Tensei orange 80HY and the Fuji Pro 2.0 HY. Used it a few months ago in several tournaments and found it to be very effective and reliable. I expected it to be primarily for tee shots on long par 3's or short par 4's. But was very surprised how well it worked from the fairway. I've never played a 16* degree hybrid that launched as easily, but this one is easy to elevate and it's not too hard to shape shots when needed. It's possible to hit low spin draws or high cuts that easily
  5. Still my favorite drivers: a) TEE Exotics 10.5* w/Accra T60 S b) TEE Exotics Proto 9* w/Accra T50 S tipped 1" c) MP001 9* Graf Blue All are very solid the TEE's are very compact 460 heads and the Mizuno MP001 is 400c. I find them somewhat longer than most of the newer stuff I've played and accurate enough. Most important I have much better control in tournament play.
  6. A lot of good ones mentioned already. That said one of the best I've played (for 8 years or so) is the MP-001 9* Graf Blue S. Great feel, easy to shape shots and long! Others I like include the Cleveland Launcher 330 it is a lot of fun to hit. But for all around fun and performance the Mizuno was about the best. https://forums.golfwrx.com/discussion/23614/mizuno-mp001-400cc-460cc-drivers-very-under-rated
  7. I hit my 6 iron a little on the low side which isn't too bad in most cases; my 5 iron is more of the same. Low but about 10 yds farther. But, instead of another "6 iron" I've experimented with a 6 hybrid to replace my 5 iron. Went with a fairly heavy/stiff shaft and slightly open club face to avoid the "lefts". Works pretty well, on average I hit it about as far as I did my 5 iron -- but can max it out farther--- and when I want, I can hit it much higher and can shape it more easily. Hard to give up my 5 iron, but harder to ignore the better results.
  8. In my area... gg uses the pga value guide discounted to only 90-95% of the full value guide price.
  9. More than not the launcher 400, graf blue is in the bag. I cut it down to 44.5 but for me it is as long as anything else and amazingly straight.
  10. I often play driver, 3+fairway (13* Honma TW737 or Rapture Adj 12.5) and a Honma 18* TW 737c fairway. It's more than an issue of loft--- the fairways combine for a range of trajectories and shot types I expect to need given course/conditions. So they work pretty well. Sometimes I will go back to a 15* fairway that launches a little higher than my strong 3 wood and then throw in a heavenwood (Rogue 20*) to replace my Honma 5 wood. Lots of possibilities.
  11. The honma 737 13* 3 wood is as long as my rapture 13* off the tee and easier to launch from the fairway
  12. also interested in the PRGR Red Eyes... does anyone have any info on likely additional fees incurred re: Japan delivery?
  13. I have played both the OO and 13* Rapture. Liked each but in the end the OO just seemed to launch too low with too littlie spin for me. The Rapture was easier to flight off the deck and tee.
  14. Check out the Exotics and Exotics tour proto both excellent. Basically a "cb2" driver. The proto has slightly different weighting and an open face.
  15. I had the OO 11.5* stock S shaft but it never really worked well for me. And that was after swapping several other shafts in. Mostly low launch, hard left issues. Much better for my swing was a 43" Cleveland 330 10.5* and a Cobra 414 10.5 also playing at 43". I would highly recommend trying some of the older (smaller cc) heads especially with more up-to-date shafts. Some may like shorter/heavier shafts (than their current driver) my best combo was typically lighter (60-70g) and stiffer (an X) than my normal driver shaft. Another option has been the Ping Rapture 2014 adjustable... so far
