  1. i played a p760 pw @ 46degs and a 50deg milled grind wedge, and there was a large distance gap / “Tech gap” , about 25 yards or so. P760s are hot off of the face , and the p790s are even hotter. in order to combat the Distance / tech gap , I lengthened my 50deg wedge and inch (also helped me feel more comfortable / upright). The distance gap is now 15yards. I would recommend the p790 a wedge if you're looking for more heat off of the face / distance. I would recommend a 50deg wedge if you’re looking for more precision / accuracy. Understand there will be a “tech gap” (with the speed foam in
  2. Very nice !! What day are we going to winged foot for the US Open? I say we go Sunday and witness history !! Or Friday to heckle the players who didn’t make the cut lol. I told Rahmbo “better luck next year” as he was exiting 17 green on friday @ the 2017 US Open @ Erin Hills and he put holes through my head with his 10second glare, I thought he was about to ask to have me kicked out :/ lol
  3. This is all really good information to know , Mr. Jones. I appreciate your input. Hosel drilling is really intriguing to me , it seems like a very efficient way to lower SW without causing inconsistencies throughout the club head.
  4. That’s great news !! I’m happy that you were able to achieve what you set out to do. The SW scale seems to get a lot of flak but I have found it to be extremely beneficial and a way to quantify the “feel” of the club somewhat. As a Michigan man , where it stays light outside for 20 hours of the day, during the summer.. what is the maximum amount of golf you have gotten in , in a day ?
  5. Stu , I am taking notes !! From a 5 senses perspective , the club head just feels more consistent through the impact zone and the overall stick feels like it has more “pop” with the extra weight in the grip end. I have a tendency to “get stuck” with club head never really releasing, and the counterbalance helps me get through the golf ball. Kindof feels like a heavier version of the cut down sticks I had , I really enjoy using this sw scale to quantify feel of the club head , no matter how frowned upon it may be. as stated above I have a tendency to spin out early , but with the extra weight
  6. if you enjoy messing around with counterbalance weights , I would recommend what was recommended to me, SwitchGrips USA. They have adjustable weight options and nice, heavy midsize+ grips coming in @75g with a stock 2g weight in BOC , that one can adjust with 8g, 14g, and 20g options. My mission was to get my effective swingWeight back around c9 and D0 with some playability / adjustability for minor tinkering, and I will accomplish that. After this , I am done messing with the sticks for the decade and grinding the game to get a good feel
  7. that is a very good point , those two players have extremely fluid , “effortless” swings , with incredible tempo. with the heavier seingweight’s in my irons (D6.5) after the lengthening, I felt like I really had to manipulate the club head with my hands in order to to get the shaft to pop thru the impact zone , so hearing its hard to get “handsy” is great news !! also from what I understand , the extra weight in the handle helps shift the balance point of the shaft upwards and creates a more stable tip section. Lower rate of closure through impact zone / more consistent ballflight / tighter d
  8. This is really good information to have , how did removing those two weights from your 9 and PW effect your ballflight and “feel” of the club ? aside from the -5 sw adjustment .. what type of shafts do you play in the 760s ? And what were you hoping to achieve ballflight wise ?
  9. Lolol, it may not makes sense from a scientific / logic perspective... But feel wise , I LOVE it !! Lol. I believe it helps that I only have 105g shafts and probably need 120-130g shafts as well, so the extra grip weight feels heavy / good and has already helped me get more shallow , with more snap saved, for the final rotational move through the ball. Are you familiar with the golden bear and his infamous counterweighted driver / 3wood that he used religiously / competitively for 15+ and 30+ years , respectively ? how about mr.57 himself , or the big easy ? Both infamous counterbalancers. How
  10. this is it player !! Switching over midsize grips that are 23g’s heavier with some interchangeable weights in butt end of grip, so I can really get kooky !! Lol
  11. I literally just found a 13g mini flat head adjuster / tool for an old barometer and put it in the back end of each one of my clubs ... and immediately got my old ball flight back that I had with the shortened sticks (c9 swingweight). I am 6’4 and these levers NEED weight baby !! Going to go with midsize grips (75g) and get some light weights to have for tinkering in BOC. I also lead the downswing with my grip (feel wise) and often swing crowbars to engrain positions / muscle memory. I have found the feel I need and now it’s time to dial it. The new swingweights , with new SwitchGrip grips are
  12. no doubt brother !! Thank you , and will do. my question now is — do I go with the standard size, 45g grips (with 20g in butt end of club) / or 75g midsize grips (with less weight butt end of club) ? I have a tendency to be a handle dragger through the impact zone and don’t snap the club head .. thinking the standard size with more weight in BOC may be better. I really wish golf galaxy sold these counter weighted grips , so I could try before I buy ..
  13. That’s a really good point regarding trying to “recapture” the old feel. I need to leave that idea in the past and work with what I have now. i may go the “adjusting head weight route” down the line, but I am fairly confident this will do the trick. I also like the idea of a heavier head for energy transfer purposes , just hoping I can still manipulate the club head through the impact zone how I need to fit the shot requirements, which is the issue now. thank you for the input and kind wishes !! Going to grind away with this set and make it work !
  14. That’s what’s up !! Hopefully I don’t have to go the “fresh set of irons” route lol. was talking to my buddy who extended my sticks and he informed me of SwitchGrips , with adjustable weights at the top end of the grips ... annnnnd I just scooped up 20 adjustable weight mid-sizers, to throw in my gamer’s / back up wedges and speed sticks for consistent feel. Also scooped a rib kit from golfworks, if a ribbed grip helped hogan , I’m sure it won’t hurt my game :) I was looking to get heavier shafts anyway , and I believe this is the solution I have needed. Thanks for your help , I truly can not
  15. that’s a fair point not trusting that 5g = -1sw equation , I am just going to use it as a general guideline and tinker. Because as you say, it is all trial and error. I just hit up my buddy who did the shaft extensions, to see if those weights will work with them.. fingers crossed. Although, I feel like lead tape with a scale won’t be an awful alternative. that’s a really good point , trying it out on one club first. Going to give the counterbalancing a go on one of my old dci’s and see if it improves the feel. and Stu , my swing never changes and is always so consistent ; it is always the eq
  16. Stu !! Thanks for your input , brother. You bring up a good point regarding the swing weight scale not being designed for butt weight changes. Although , I feel a sense of solace that I can still potentially save the feel of these sticks with them being lengthened , with the 5g to butt end of club equalling -1 sw point theory. I understand I am undertaking a risk with counterbalancing these shafts , but I got a taste of 125ft apexes when I am flowing and I am willing to take the risk of the counterbalancing to possibly get that feel / height back. My modus 105s’ feel flimsy at times and I fee
  17. Thanks brother, these look more precise than the measuring / weighing of lead tape. I wonder if they can be added to shafts that have already been extended with plugs .. ?
  18. 9-3 drill , focusing on hitting the inside back quadrant of the ball. Sounds like you would benefit from Bradley Hughes and his 4:30 path methodology. With a will there’s a way
  19. what is the maximum amount of lead tape one should put underneath the grip (for lighter swing weight purposes) without destroying the feel of the shaft ? currently have nippon modus 105s p760’s and grew accustomed to light swing weight (c9) after playing sticks half inch short of standard. I got them lengthened after realizing how hunched over back was by 1.25”. And as one would guess, it messed with the swing weight and consequently, my feel, and I am hoping to get the swing weight back down. ideally I would like to get them back down to c9 but understand that may not be plausible with the n
