  1. Chiming back in, I bit the bullet and have the blueprints in 7-PW now combo'd with my 4-6 S55'S. I actually had my S55's in the same irons weakened lofts a tiny bit, and the lofts match up right on the blueprints. These things are just easily as playable in these irons and imo they actually blend very well with the s55. My only issue with them now is that they are blue dot (1 up) and I'm an orange dot (2 flat) guy. I decided to try them anyways but yes I am definitely noticing the overly left flight tendency and I think this is why they've also been flying slightly longer, with
  2. Have been gaming my S55's for 7 years now and had no real plans to change anything there, but have an opportunity to buy some BP's in mint shape for 7-W. I had my S55s bent ever so slightly strong in the 4-6, and my S55s weakened a touch 7-P, essentially matching the blueprints, so loft-wise I shouldn't see much difference. Not sure there's much to gain here other than some shiny new sticks to replace my aging S55s (especially the most used ones), but has anyone tried this combo with good result?
  3. The wingspan thing does make sense, Ive always had to play flat lie angles so I do remember having longer arms. This isn't the first time I've heard about making a better hip turn and that is something I can definitely work on. I also do believe that my right arm disconnects because since I restrict the hip turn, I'm basically reaching to get the swing to the length i need vs just turning more. At least something to think about
  4. Very true. Added video clip. Wish I could have gotten it in high fps slow Mo, maybe next time!
  5. A little bit about myself and my game to start: Played as low as a 0.3, but normally hover in the 2-4 index just depending. Rarely practice properly (no time and low interest). Decently happy with how I play tee to green, I believe most of my strokes lost are around and on green. I'm willing to put more practice and work into my game, with the ultimate goal of breaking 70 and getting to scratch or better. With that being said, I need to deal with a personal obsession of my backswing positions to either convince myself to leave it and swing my swing, or change it.
  6. just wondering if anyone would know or can measure the untipped length of the Speeder VC6.2 Tour Spec X flex from tip to a graphic? I've got my eye on this oldie, wanting to throw it into my 410LST but would like to know if it's been tipped or not....
  7. Tour spec? These are more available and for quite a bit cheaper... Hmmm
  8. I think I'm finally up to retiring my 8.5° anser which has seen all of a 6M3 X black tie, a 757 speeder Evo TS, and a AD TP 6X. The TP6X is gone and so now I've got the funds to add a new driver to the bag. I did test the 425LST with the ping rep on trackman indoors and saw some pretty great results over my anser (not super surprised), but I'm not entirely sold on the stock rogue with it. Obviously I'm not averse to older tech, so I've got the opportunity to go 2 directions. I can either snag a 410LST (which I've never hit either though) and pair it with a nice shaft,
  9. You know it, I've gamed this driver long enough to hit some impressive drives still, but the high toe and low heels are just not even close to what something from this decade is pumping out lol
  10. Yeah the issue I have with that fitting/fitter was the whole time he seemed to be playing it off that the white 70TX WAS the shaft I'd be getting for the standard retail shelf price. He was basically already writing up the order. I got the quote back from the club showing it with a white 70X, but at the fitting, distinctly remember checking the shaft and it definitely said 70TX, and would also support why my 2nd demo of the club of my own with the X was spinning up on me. I don't want to be accusing anyone of anything, but it feels a little "bait and switch" to me right now.
  11. I have already been offered a Ventus black and think that could be a pretty deadly low spin combo with a 410LST, and the total cost of that setup would still be cheaper than a stock 425LST, and i could still sell the tp6X pull to offset the cost a bit too. I know ping advertises the 425 spinning ~200 less than the 410, but also not sure what shafts those claims are based on either. I do know that either of them would give me way better numbers outside of the center of the face compared to my anser, but am I right in assuming that a decade is enough technology time to have evolved the spin in
  12. Kind of a tough situation to try and estimate, but here's basically what I'm going through at the moment. Was a typical equipment tinkerer for a long time, but have settled down and played the same set for many seasons now. Even took 2 years off but got back in hard last year and will continue on now. Current driver setup is a ping anser 8.5* with a GD TP-6X. I hit it decently out on the course but ended up in a demo test/fitting with ping at my club out of curiosity and now am stuck with what to do. On trackman my average launch conditions are not bad,
  13. The wife found the stash of extra grips and told me to get rid of them to get funds so I can take my son to Legoland next week...let's make that happen! Up for sale is 3 full sets of grips. I'm going to California on Sunday and can bring them with me and ship them from there to make things easier for shipping and what not. I always blow my grips on with air so these are all easy to re-use. looking to get $40usd shipped for each set! 1) set of 13 black pure pro standard size grips. They have been used about a season but if you know anything about pure grips, they barely show wear except
  14. Currently looking at picking up an older loft/lie machine. It seems to be the older Ralph Matlby GAM model. I would love to get a mitchell or a true blue but it's just not in the budget, and i don't see myself using this more than a handful of times. I play pings anyways so i wouldn't really even be bending my own, but maybe friends clubs and a couple of customers a year. What would this even be worth anymore you think?
  15. I have the x2's and use them with wings. Are you using the silicone earpiece or the comply? I'm using the comply and they stay put whenever I use them on the range.
