  1. The Max had the 70g Aldila White. Felt good, looked good. I actually really like it in a driver more than a fw. I think the standard Mavrik will be in the bag for a while. I paired it with a Fujikura Ventus, and it's long, easy enough to hit but in general I'm a decent fairway wood player and hit it often. Plays pretty neutral IMO. Very big fan. Edit: I top out at about 105mph with driver. No clue on the lack of distance with the Max. I've hit some bombs with it, but on average I get like 210-230 yards? It didn't work out. Standard Mav, I can usually carry 220 or so.
  2. Makes me feel better to hear. I went with the 13° hoping to find an easy to hit head that I could hit low ropes with, but couldn't really dial it in.
  3. I found the Mav Max to be good at keeping me from fading. Face is shut, and it does kind of make my left miss more... left. Super easy to hit, but I couldnt get much distance from it. That was possibly a shaft or a "me" issue, but I gave up on it for the standard Mavrik. If you over fade, this could be a good stick for you, plus they're dirt cheap right now.
  4. You bet... Grapevine Muni Texas Star Texas Rangers Stevens Park Old American Cowboys Golf Club I enjoyed all of them and should be within about 30 mins from Cattleack BBQ, which is also a worthwhile stop.
  5. I have both. Definitely chrome. The raw is a much deeper color and for sure will rust up (and ding up, superficially) fast.
  6. Ah, a favorite topic for the Bandon crowd. It's all been covered above, but my favorite moves are the ziplocs and the hooded waterproof jacket. I've settled onto a $100 Columbia OutDry that is pretty much a lightweight shell and keeps EVERYTHING out. I will usually roll out the Sunice goretex for regular rain, but if the Pacific wants to knock me over, it don't want to worry about hats or anything. Go out there and grind. It's the best.
  7. Bumping to the top. Also headed to HHI in the winter. Harbortown and RTJ are on the list, but need suggestions for another solid choice. Public or private.
  8. Agree on all points here too. I'm still not sure how I rank them against each other, but will want to test a bit further.
  9. Should be good. I've been in Jan a few times and have usually been able to get em all in no issue. Once you finish your first round, head into the shop and see if they can get you out right away. It's a good bet you can hop on at like 12:40 and you're good to go. I've had a ton of success wiggling schedules around on the fly once you get there. They're awesome at managing their tee sheets and want to hook you up. YOU'RE GOING TO LOVE IT
  10. Yeah. Agree for the most part. We all want to play it! Worth a try, and I've had some good luck with "just asking nicely." Takes some work!
  11. I'm sure the answer is no. The few people I know that have been said they'll do very limited guest play with the handwritten letter or a pro in the know. Member invite is obviously the best bet, but there's a million people that want that hookup. Would be curious to see some thoughts from those that have been there.
  12. If you can't get the TP, the DI and the IZ will be closer in feel and flight. The XC is a good shaft, but definitely the outlier in this group. But if you're only upgrading from Titleist to Titleist, just swap em out.
  13. I have both of those shafts sitting around that I'd want to toss in a FW. Both would need too much prep and build work for me to do and I'm too lazy. I'd want them in a Mavrik or Epic Speed head, so they're not super interchangeable with adapters... Plus, tipping them up would make them kind of unusable in a driver for me if those experiments didn't work out. Decisions!
  14. I was worried about that too. Would have been so sad to see an injured Miura!
  15. Graf Blue NV Raw Tensei OG Diamanas AD DI Those hit the nostalgia button pretty hard and look cool if you ask me!
