  1. Did anyone in the thread try the stability tour shaft? It’s a big upgrade cost for a putter that’s already supposed to be stable.
  2. I have a 6s black in g410 lst driver, and it’s a piercing shot that can cut through even windy Texas days. I have a blue 6s in a Sub70 pro fairway and it’s basically a bullet on pure shots. I’ve accidentally hit it way further than I anticipated when I make pure contact.
  3. At 5’9”, you will likely fit into relatively standard spec clubs (you’re around the average height), so you should be able to get along fairly well with most stock clubs. Get something a few years old and you won’t spend as much. While everyone loves the latest and greatest, golf tech has been (overall) relatively static for a while. for golf balls, if you’re willing to buy online, you can search for a site that sells lost and found golf balls in bulk on discount. That will save you another few bucks. Once you have some equipment, a started pack of lessons (3-5 would be a s
  4. I’ve got the pro fairway and it’s a bullet off the fairway. I actually prefer it on grass than on a tee. Liked the 3 Wood so much that I decided to order the 5.
  5. Sounds like you’ve already purchased the Ventus (you won’t regret a Ventus anyways), but if it still feels stout, check out aftermarket weights. The swing weight change for a few grams made a world of difference for me. Suddenly I didn’t feel like I was trying to control this heavy thing and I could swing more naturally. You can buy one off, or I got a set of 3 in 4, 6 and 8 grams. From what I read, 2 grams in the head = 1 SW, so going from a 12 gram D8 to a 6 gram seems like it should have dropped me to a D5. I don’t have a way to verify though.
  6. I know you’re focused on the new shaft, but I’ve got a g410 lst with a 6s Ventus black that I bought from CC that I thought was way to stout for me after using for a couple months. From the specs, I knew it was D8 from the shop, and I saw it had a 12 gram weight in the back of the head. On a whim, I got some lighter after market head weights to test, and the shaft suddenly the shaft doesn’t feel too stout anymore. I dropped a measly 6 grams and it’s amazing what the difference is.
  7. I’ve got Sub70 5 Wood, 4 and 5 pro hybrids and a 699 gap wedge coming with the next two weeks to have a nearly fully overhauled bag for 2021. Now if I can just figure out what I want to do with my putter (keep it vs new hotness).
  8. You might be out of time depending on what “winter months” means, but CC does have a 90 day guarantee you can look into if you bought from them.
  9. that makes sense. I was up at the local Dicks that has a smaller golf section and practice green and tested a longer Tommy Armour putter (not sure of full arm lock as it only came to about mid forearm) but I did like the consistency. The forward press didn’t bother me. One of my issues is that I try to do a forward press with my current putter, but I’m not consistent enough with the angle, so my putts end up flying by the hole when I press too much. With arm lock, as long as the ball and stance are setup the same, it should be consistent.
  10. Does anyone have any experience with the arm lock and DF 2.1? The arm lock seems like a great putting method to remove variables, and the putter seems like it’s also trying to remove variables. How does the remote fitting process work for arm lock if I don’t currently have an arm lock for reference?
  11. Any club related to Sub70 is best bang for buck, and they use real deal shafts. Personally I love my pro fairway with genuine Velocore Ventus that I got with and extra 10% off on cyber Monday. All in I think it was $360 ish
  12. I wonder if these were the predecessors to the p790s since Taylormade bought Adam’s years ago. Those were some sweet looking irons. At the time, I wasn’t good enough to hit them, but they still look great years later. Wonder how much they go for these days.
  13. Out of curiosity, what are you getting from the heads that you can’t get from the manufacturer? Most major OEMs have pretty much any shaft, and you’re searching for current model irons.
  14. I’m currently moving away from Driving iron, and the new setup will be 3w, 5w (instead of 3 DI), 4h, 5h. I’ve got 105 swing speed, so speed wasn’t really an issue, but I (personally) had issues with it when I wasn’t on a tee. For some people, the look of a long iron just works better, but I get more versatility from something else.
  15. Yes, it’s definitely not closed.
  16. I went with the upgraded Ventus blue 6s shaft and it’s pretty amazing. For me it’s a piercing mid level flight. It feels like a bullet for my swing, but I’m not typically a high ball hitter. It’s still high enough though. On Monday I hit out of Texas rough (not that deep) from about 230 to an elevated green, somehow hit the green, and I found the ball just on the far fringe maybe 10-15 feet from where it landed. It didn’t stop on a dime like some people want, but I was putting from the fringe. Had it been a level green, it would have had a better descent angle.
  17. Loving my 699 irons and a good swing with my pro fairway is an absolute bullet. Getting 240 off the deck for me is amazing. The 3 utility isn’t working as well for me, and overall my long iron game isn’t what it should be even if I have enough speed, so I pulled the trigger on a 5 pro fairway and a 4 and 5 pro hybrid yesterday. Excited to have the top of my bag completely set for the foreseeable future.
  18. I’m not sure what you’re arguing, but what I got from the person you quoted is “if it’s designed to overcome issue for those who have swing flaws, then those without as many flaws should be just fine”. I think you’re friends would fall into the latter category.
  19. There was an online video that essentially asked “should you be playing hybrid irons” and the pga coaches compared the hb turbo launchers to the g410 irons. In practice the super game improvement irons spun in the perfect range of around 7500 rpm for 7 iron (more than even the g410) with towering flight that would stop on almost any green. While every iron plays slightly different for each player, if they can get SGI irons to stop on greens, I don’t think the iron is the issue.
  20. If you still have the quality swing to hit the x forged irons, I don’t think you need any upgrades. Those were sweet clubs and you won’t find significant differences if you got the equivalent new clubs. Depending on the quality of your wedges and your putter, you may only need to look at the top of your bag. From your driver to current drivers is pretty significant improvement in moi. Fairways and hybrids have also seen improvements, but driver will stand out the most simply because of the distance. As for hybrid / driving iron / wood at the top of the bag, that’s so tough,
