  1. Hey all,


    So I purchased a shaft off an auction site, and it arrived in the condition shown in the pictures. It looks like there are some small chips along the tip of the shaft. My question is, is that exposed graphite below or is it just old epoxy? Secondly, I'm no pro, will it even affect performance if I'm going to epoxy an adapter tip over the "damage?" Thank you!



  2. Up for sale are the following items:


    1. Tensei AV Raw White 65x with a TM tip and a recent UTx midsize grip. The shaft measures 44" long. 


    2. A "Practice" M5 head. Definitely some embarrassment, but this was the head I was using when I was reconfiguring my swing 6-8 months ago. A perfectly functional head, but a good amount of scuffing on the painted top line as can be seen in the pics (don't judge). Not going to win any beauty pageants, but still performs just fine on the course, and is also perfect for any devious experiments you WRX-ers want to perform on it. 


    Buy them together, $old shipped. Additionally, some sort of trade involving an AD IZ 6x shaft would be welcomed.

    It looks this way because of the rust.  I play three times a week and I am in the swamp known as Houston, which has insane humidity.  I wipe down the putter after each round and I use the putter cover that came with it.  I do keep my clubs in the trunk, so that heat factor contributed to the rust, I am guessing.  Despite all of this, I've had tons of putters....Wilson, Odyssey, pings etc... and none have rusted like this, under similar conditions.  


    But the crazy thing is, I was just asking them a question, I never asked for a refund or an exchange.  Worst customer service I have ever seen.

    I live in the same swamp, my raw wedges start rusting less than an hour after the plastic comes off

  4. I've seen others sell these and didn't see any rules about not being able to sell gift cards, so here goes. Mods, obviously let me know if this is not okay.


    I got a PGASS gift card SOLD

    It is not possible to change the lie angle without affecting the toe hang.  It will point the long axis of the shaft somewhere else and that will change the toe hang. 


    That being said, it is better to change the lie angle and change the toe hang a little than to try to putt with a putter that is setting up incorrectly for you. 


    If we're talking ballpark figures, the putter I have in mind is the ER2 which is 22 degrees toe hang. I am wanting a lie angle of around 72 (stock is 70). How badly would the toe hang get messed up from 2 degrees of upright lie?

    I've done this. No noticeable change or effect on toe hang or the putter's performance at all for me.


    How is it done though? For instance, if you change the lie by bending the top of the bend, it will aim the center of the shaft away from the center of mass correct? If you bend the shaft near the hosel, you'd get the same effect, which would theoretically increase toe hang. Do you bend both to "re-aim" the shaft at the correct spot?

  7. Hey all,


    I wanted to know how hard it would be to adjust the lie angle (I want more upright) without changing the toe hang of a single bend. Is this possible and/or worth the effort? The workshop guy at a local big box says it's no problem, but I am having a hard time wrapping my head around how it's done. Thanks!

    Tension Highlands (not the other course) is a good pick. Make a tee time because they can be packed. 

    Cedar Crest would be my other recommendation. Old school Tillinghast design that hosted a PGA in the 20s. It’s more of a championship course requiring strategy and good shotmaking. Also, it’s easier to get a tee time and the people are great. 

    Stevens Park is also really fun. Good views and a cool layout in an old neighborhood. It’s hard to get a tee time but definitely worth it. 

    enjoy Dallas

    Thanks! Tension highlands is in the tenison park "complex" I'm assuming? That is right next to the clinic I will be at so it works out perfectly!

  9. Hey all, visiting Dallas for a day, have several hours between doctor appointments, so I wanted to get a quick round in. The courses close to where I will be is Grover Keeton, City Golf Club, and Tenison. I have no clue which one of those is public, but any thoughts on where I should play?

  12. For sale is a PXG 0811 X+ Proto head that was designed for people with a positive AOA. I am finding that I do not have a positive AOA unfortunately. The driver has seen a decent amount of practice off the mat and only 2 rounds. The picture of the face still has some foot spray on it, but the face condition is good and there is some fading of the bottom of the driver from normal use. Includes head cover and original pxg head tool.


    $sold shipped for the head, then off to the bay. Possible trade interest for OG Sim Max head in 9*.

    That is on the low side so  I guess rather than try and increase launch angle  you should be trying to increase spin. Optimising Spin Loft I think is the term. 

    Thanks I appreciate it! Might also try a flexier shaft to see if my numbers bump up

    To be fair you might still be onto something with your numbers not being optimum. What's your typical spin rate with a 16 degree launch 7 iron? 

    Between 5500 and 6000 depending on how bad I hit it. The occasional low spin knuckler.

    A quick Google says that PGA Tour average 7 iron launch angle is about 15-16 deg so isn't that a good thing? 

    Oh I had no idea, the guy who was fitting me at pgass said I needed closer to 20. Also, I was getting 10-15 yds of rollout on the monitor so I assumed I wasn't getting enough launch.
