  1. So far the Ventus Black 6X has worked the best for me. Playing mine at 45.25 with a couple strips of lead tape on the sole, out on the toe to help promote more of a fade and take away my hook issue I sometimes have. Stable head with a stable shaft!
  2. Im 46/50/54/58 on most days. Only time I throw in a 60 is just for the heck of it and I wanna use my MG2 TW grind 60. I've honestly never had a shot where I thought a 60 would have been able to do more than my 58. I use my 58 for all greenside bunker shots and I will like when I open it up, I dont come up short as often as when I used a 60 from the bunker. And yes, I know most wont use their 60 in the bunker since they may be carrying a 56 for that, but I love my 54 and prefer a tighter "full swing" number and have no issues getting it to stop around the green versus a 56. Plus having a 58, I can use it more square face if I need more loft than a 54. In summary...58 I think it more versatile and we aren't playing on PGA tour speed greens.
  3. Any update on the Mini with any of the Ventus shafts? Thinking of putting a black in mine at stock playing length.
  4. Couldn’t agree more. Mine has literally trickled down my bag from Driver…then 3 wood (have black, blue and red and need to sell one), then 5 wood in blue and now a Blue 9X in my 2 iron. Lol.
  5. It’s somewhat course dependent for me but I have a Ventus Black 7X that just arrived that I’m going to put into my Taylormade Mini 11.5. If it’s a course less than 6800ish, I honestly don’t need a 3 wood. Pretty decent drives on par 5s leave me usually less than 3 wood distance so I’d rather have another tee option (especially in the colder months) and go straight to 5 wood.
  6. Much appreciate. Tons of great information you gave!
  7. I appreciate all the comments and advice on other courses in those areas. I would love to continue to hear more. I have a bad habit or bringing extra clubs on golf trips and switching up my bag too often...so I never get into a groove with one set. I'm trying to learn from that like most have said about bringing what you are used to and being creative from there. Comments on the type of sand on all those bunkers over there? High bounce on a high lofted is what is sounds like...(our group of guys are pretty competitive and I wanna tell them the opposite of everything I learn on here)
  8. So I just paid my deposit for a long awaited 7 day golf trip to Scotland in June 2023. Yes...I know it is a ways off but I was wanting some feedback from people who have played/live across the pond. Any advice on bag setup would be great. I know the turf, weather conditions, and types of shots are different that what I play on the east coast of the US. Here are some examples of questions that have came across my mind. These might help guide you on some answers and dialogue. Would you have changed anything with your wedge setup? Change the bounce? Use 3 wedges instead of 4 and add an extra long iron/club? What wedge loft really doesnt help on true links? What were the most important clubs in the bag to work on? What type of ball (characteristics) did you use and would you have changed to lower/higher spinning? As a typical GolfWRXer, I have too many options to choose from with my driving irons, wedges, adjustable woods and shaft options. My wedge setup right now is 46, 50, 54 and 58/60. I hope to hear your experiences and also learn from your mistakes! lol The courses on the itinerary are Muirfield, Carnoustie, Old and New Course and going to find a gem on an off day. Thanks!
  9. Fade all day with a driver. Want to avoid the hook and will be working on setting up my driver to eliminate the left side. So far I’m thinking my SIM2 10.5 turned wide up to 8.5 with my Ventus Black 6X. I want to be able to go after it and not worry about going left. If I need a draw off the tee, pull out the 3W…
  10. 1. City, State? Fuquay Varina, North Carolina 2. Handicap? 9 3. What is your current putter? Scotty Cameron Phantom X 5.5 or X 6STR 4. Have you ever used a L.A.B. Golf putter? No 5. Why do you want to review the MEAZZ.1 putter? The Scotty 6STR is the only center shafted putter I’ve used. Im more of a straight back-straight through putter and I’d love to compare that to the size, feel and sound of another top tier brand. 6. Do you agree to participate in an ongoing testing thread, posting reviews and photos? Absolutely!
  11. Did you tip your black 6x and/or red 9x or just go straight in?
  12. I have the 3 wood with Ventus Blue 7X and 5 wood with Black 7X and I find the center of the face more than I ever have with those shafts. I don’t feel like I have to swing hard. Give me a nice straight ball flight and I don’t have to worry as much about the left side like I used to. Same with my Black 6X in my driver.
  13. City, State? Milton, WV 1. Handicap? 9 2. Current hybrid? SIM2 Rescue 19* 3. What is important to you in a hybrid? Adjustability and control anti-left/fade bias. Compact design and sits flat. I want to be able to hit it off the tee and from the rough. Not much offset. 4. Why do you want to review the Cobra KING Tec Hybrid? I like the fact you can adjust the weights to help control ball flight. The all black finish looks amazing and the custom shafts available. 5.
