  1. I'm interested in the 3 drivers noted in the header, Mavrik/Mavrik SZ/Epic Speed. Mostly looking at those as my local course has the Callaway demo cart so I could test a few shafts if needed. Although I can tend to fade/slice the ball, the killer for me is the dreaded high toe hit that snaps left and goes OB. If I could aim down the left-center of the fairway and allow a fade to be playable without being scared of the hooker I'd be a very happy camper. I did get to hit the Epic Speed in a the Smoke iM10 in 6.5, while I thought that shaft might be too stout (105-107 ss) I got along with it quite well - still got plenty of lift and could turn it over a bit as well. Since CPO has great prices right now on Like New Mavrik/SZ models I'm interested in anyone's feedback on these heads and how they play on that high toe. The SZ model is of interest because I like the smaller profile at address of the 450cc head - I did like the view of the Speed at address as well by my course doesn't seem to have the 9* head anywhere to be found right now to try - I hit it on a Callaway demo day a few weeks back. I also have no issue with getting balls in the air and almost never see any roll out when they hit the fairway, leading me to believe that high spin is an issue. Although my ss might not be quite what I would think I need for X-Stiff, I do have an aggressive move and fast transition so I am looking to go X based upon what I saw with that Speed. I really don't like to way the Max LS looks at address, that elongated head does nothing for my confidence over the ball. I'm currently playing a Triton (yes, that's right) in the 8.5/standard lie setting with as much weight forward as I can with the Rogue 125 stiff. When I center it up it goes for days, but spin still seems to be high based on ball flight and how it acts (no roll) when it lands unless I accidentally launch it way too low. The big miss is the snappy hook when I catch it on the toe which is why I'm looking for an alternative. Thanks in advance.
  2. Unfortunately unless the putter grip is round, don’t think it would be legal on a wedge. You could use a jumbo grip though. The shaft itself probably isn’t that different from most wedges to most putters in terms of weight and flex
  3. If you like the height of the X try the left dash, lower spin in long clubs but still high ball flight with plenty of green side spin
  4. Ditto on feedback for the E721 - very interested in how the RDX shaft performs in them
  5. I just picked up a couple ascot wedges in great shape for under $50 shipped for each from the bay. I was intrigued by the Edison wedges but not the $180 price tag. Same designer, great sole and remarkable spin so far, even on range balls at the practice green I see hop and stop. Plenty lefty options even cheaper
  6. I was reading an article on PGATour.com about Bryson’s quest to drive the 6th at Bay Hill and it mentioned him going to a different driver that gives him more control and 3000 RPM and pulled up Getty. Sure enough the LTD Pro looks to be back just like it was last Sunday. Makes me want to pull my LTD with Tour Green out and bang it around again. Here is the best shot I found of it.
  7. I game the Turin most often and really enjoy the alignment stripe on it. It works well to line up with my intermediate point of reference a few inches ahead of the ball, helps me be certain I’m aimed where I am intending to.
  8. Not looking for straight up trades - see updated listed - 3 iron sold
  9. The 3 Utility is sold and would like to make just one trip to post office for shipping - let's get the irons gone too. Not overly interested in trade - but would consider a trade + $200-$300 in cash for irons -Interested in plumbers neck style mallet putters -Armlock style putters -Last few model year drivers - stiff shaft Cobra Forged TEC Black One Length Iron Set5 - Gap (I took an inch off the gap because I used it more for chipping than full shots, lead tape added to get back swing weight and take flight down/spin down)Dynamic Gold Tour White AMT S300Golf Pride MMC +4 Midsize Grips $old Cobra King Utility One Length - 3 Utility - 18 to 21 degree loftsKBS C-Taper Lite 110 StiffCobra R.E.L.

  10. Srixon gap wedges always look good, like the 51* loft too
  11. Easier on the eyes than Whoopi, that’s for sure
  12. Maybe run him in out in a match play vs. Smiley to get a baseline on where he is now
  13. This, and all the dead Buffalo carcasses because hunters could only carry back 10 pounds of meat.
  14. I'm interested in their wide body blade with plumber neck - so pricey though - even resale
  15. I just signed up for an email when they go live - would love to set up a testing system out of my garage - and be able to buy just heads to test/sell when I realize they don't fix my issues
