  1. Hey, Anyone out there have a DC code for The Stack System? I'm looking to get one and looking to save where I can. Thanks!
  2. While SL2 is stylish, it's less functional. It's a tight bag and pockets are small. Someone said that you scuff your hands every time you reach in to get something out and this is 100% true even with a medium cadet hands. For me, the most annoying thing is that while they say that the full length divider is supposed to make it super easy for you to put the clubs in and out, this isn't the case. The dividers are not fully compartmentalized/siloed so given that this is already a smaller bag, the grips are going to tangle in there. If this is going to be your main bag, avoid it because you're going to need a slightly bigger bag.
  3. I see, this is very helpful! I'll check in with him. Thank you!
  4. My pops is almost 70 and he has been struggling with distance off the tee and has been trying to find the right equipment to fit his decreased swing speed. He as a stiff shaft in his XXIO X driver and wants to flex down to a regular. When he took it in to his local golf shop, he was told that for XXIO drivers, they need to send it to XXIO to get the shaft pulled and replaced and was quoted $250 to get the job done... Is this true or was the local golf shop trying to take advantage? Help!
  5. Yep, I noticed exactly the same thing with my magnetic closure headcover. Reassuring to hear that people were not really faking putters 20 years ago. I fell in love with this putter when I saw a kid playing one during a high school golf match and some 20+ years later, able to get my hands on one. Was a beauty then, stunning now with 20 years of history on it.
  6. So it also sounds like carbon steels get magnetized when you apply a magnetic field. Here is a question... Does a magnetized carbon steel impact the performance of the putter?
  7. Okay so magnets should really stick to the putter right? I bought one on eBay very recently and wanted to validate that it wasn't a fake one. I was doing some research and found this video on how to spot a fake T22. AT 6:05 of the video, it mentions that a magnet really sticks to the fake ones vs not so much on the real ones. T22's are 303 stainless steel so makes sense that it's not as magnetic as the Carbon Steel which I found to be ferromagnetic. (Magnets should stick to it at room temperature)
  8. Does anyone know what material was used to make the 1999 Teryllium Two NP2? (Not the inset but the frame/body of the putter)
  9. I recently installed the Fuji MC (Firm) on my NP2 TeI3. It's definitely not an apples to apples comparison given that the putter heads are different which would probably have the most impact on the feel of the club. (So whatever I say is directional and take it with a grain of salt as it's what I feel and everyone can feel things differently. Also one other thing to note is that MC Stiff is probably most comparable to TPZ. ) Both TPZ and MC adds instant stability to the putter given the weight of the shaft. TPZ is 135 grams and MC is a bit lighter at 115 grams. On the overall feel, LAGP putter edges out the MC putter. I honestly don't know if it's the putter head or the shaft. (Perhaps combination of both) The LAGP head is NP2 shape and material is GSS vs. the Terrylium insert on the Tel3 with MC Firm. What I can say with certainty is that both the LAGP and MC Firm compared to steel shafts that I had installed on them both adds tremendous feel, stability and consistency. If anyone is debating between the two I think it would come down to the price. LAGP $400 vs. MC $250. Whichever you decide, you can't lose!
  10. Love that it's not. What is it??
  11. Nice flat stick. Is this a Circle T Scotty?
  12. Wow strong feelings about this topic!! So back to the original question. Where does the original shaft go when a premium fitter sells the driver head at a full price? Some assumptions on my end: 1. This is a price differentiation tactic against the less price sensitive consumers and both the fitter and the club manufacturer takes a higher % of profit from this type of sale. This would mean the manufacturer just sends the head to the fitter. 2. These club fitters have separate business on the side unaffiliated with their main business flooding the market with stock components. Selling the original shafts. I personally think it's #1. Anyone in the golf industry who can shed some light on this? I'm super curious about this.
  13. Wow-Wi-Wa-Wa!!!!!! I'm SOLD only if they can ship one in the next couple of weeks. If not, eBay pre-owned head (Hopefully from a rich guy who swung at it for a round and decided to move on to a new one) and a new shaft.
  14. Oh not at all. The depth of this community's knowledge is so POWERFUL!!!
  15. Pro v1's: $12 A round of golf: $75 A fitted new driver that gives you +10 yards and tighter dispersion: Greater than $500 but definitely less than $1,300 The look on your buddies faces when you consistently out drive them 10+ yards and land it in the fairway: Priceless
  16. Would love to train my next dog how to look for my ball in the woods. Will help lower my score and strengthen my bond with him/her.
  17. Yeah, Shih Tzu! His name was Yoshi and had a good long 13, almost year 14 happy years! Now in doggy heaven.
  18. I totally value the service the fitters provide us and happy to pay the fitting fee.
  19. Totally! It wasn't Club Champion but another fitter that shares the same initials. Hint: They're cool.
  20. Appreciate everyone's perspective on this. I've decided to cancel the order and will try to build one on my own as I have the spec sheet from the fitting session. What I forgot to mention is that the shaft included the additional cost of puring and as someone mentioned here, also sprinkled with fairy dust.
  21. I went in for a driver fitting for the first time in my life. Loved the process and fully satisfied with the experience at the Club Fitter known nationally that starts with C. I'm just more curious about the whole economics for the fitter and the buyer. I came out 1.3K poorer. Here is the breakdown. - $499.99 for the Driver (Ping G425 Max) - $475.00 for the Shaft (Diamana TB 60 S) - $15 Grip (CP2 Pro) - $150 Fitting Fee - $50 Shipping - $95.29 Tax Grand Total: $1,290.28 Wowzer. I'll be getting the driver in 6-8 weeks. (That's a good chunk of this season) Question: Isn't $499 the cost of the head, shaft and the grip for G425 Max? Does the club fitter keep the original shaft and the grip?? Can I request these original part to be sent to me? Or maybe this just isn't how this works. Someone please enlighten me. P.S. Don't tell my wife. Thanks. UPDATE As recommended by some members of this community, I reached out to Will People and placed an order for the same set up. Below is the price comparison. TL;DR I've saved a total of $362.08. $ Savings by Part Driver: $99.99 Shaft: $115.00 (Note: I'm not getting the shaft Pured but Peoples golf offers it for $35) Grip: $15.00 Shipping: $36.80 (Note: Savings on this is even after selecting 2-day shipment from Peoples Golf) Tax: $95.29 Total: $362.08 (~32% savings vs. the premium club fitter) Other Observations and Benefits ordering through The Peoples Clubs: - People golf offers a free hot melting on new clubs. So, yep. I'm getting my head hot melted for better feel and to dampen that Ping 425 Max head sound. (Huge win!!!) - Grips are included - Turnaround time is 2 weeks vs. 6-8 weeks. In conclusion, here are my final thoughts having gone through this experience. 1. A consistent enough player will hugely benefit from a good fitting. $150 I spent at C* premium club fitter was 100% worth it. 2. The premium club fitters serve the premium consumer segment who are less price sensitive. 3. Great experience with Will Peoples and they seem to offer one of the most competitive prices with added benefits. (Free hotmelt, grip and a quick service) 4. Dear my golf buddies... get ready to be WOWED!
