  1. And they just put this unboxing video for the fli hi
  2. based off my experience getting paired with lots of strangers at the local muni, that window where you can get stopping power from a trad loft but not a jacked loft is too small to describe many people at all. edit: also ive seen you on a lot of other posts when i google search within wrx. Your name+avatar are funny so i always notice when its you.
  3. I just DIY switched a shaft yesterday. Today I realized my old one had a tip weight that I didn't transfer over, and so I pulled the shaft out again and fixed it. DIY switching shafts is so easy I have 2 sets of the same irons right now. I think I'm gonna use 5,6,7 in the back up set as shaft testers. Probably just for fun, just as a phase. Are there any tips and tricks to make shaft tinkering more enjoyable? Are 5, 6, and 7 irons too different to use them for comparisons?
  4. re: too much heat in one spot, thats def possible. Its a broken shaft so i went full yolo into it. My only tool is the torch and an oven mitt. No puller no vice I even twisted (it was reflex and i immediately knew i messed up). With the adaptable hosels these days i dont really feel the need to reflect on what i did wrong, i wont be using graphite in irons for another 20 years. ty for reassuring me on the s300 dimples! putting my s taper in now
  5. i got a butane torch similar to that one from habor freight messed up on a 983k that had a graphite shaft. I must have melted the shaft on the first go. The 4 iron worked fine, s300 steel. Took it slower and it took 2 cycles before it came off but it was easy are these little dimples on the shaft tip normal? Came out of an mp32 and the $ taper pull i bought doesnt have them edit: the dimple was on both s300 that i pulled. Pictures of ebay pulls dont seem to have them but these are over 15 years old. theyre evenly spaced so ima assume dg makes them like that from factory
  6. can i pull this off with a torch lighter from a gas station?
  7. Where? Was it on the video from over a month ago?
  8. are those aftermarket hosels?
  9. my old clubs arnt horribly fitted (at least i dont think so) but they are lofted 1 degree weaker than even what traditional is today. I had 94 on the optimizer, it thinks my PW should go 144, IRL with a 47* MP32 I go 115
  10. Has anyone gone all the way through the optimizer to the wedges? itll give you an estimate of your distances for all your wedges, including the set PW Mine was about 30 yards further than i actually carry my PW in real life. Is the optimizer pretty bad about this stat or am I really underperforming my irons?
  11. thank you for the informational response. I read it carefully but tried not to let it bias my experience when trying them. I'll probably end up going with numbers only since feel is so marginal to me
  12. I had a dream I bought 221s off ebay. They arrived and the shafts had hinges so you could fold the clubs and the club heads were all different colors. It was a rip off. I went to the ebay office and told them it was not as advertised but the seller was tied to the Chinese government and there was nothing I could do.
  13. what were your criteria in fitting yourself? did you try the tour Vs before the fitting?
  14. and you were fine on the 6.5 for a long time?
  15. i really wish they one day make sales numbers public lol. I could see it making no difference, but it could also make a significant difference. Its not like you have to get the 221 or else play taylormades. Most people who give a s*** about pre release already have older mizunos
