  1. I’ve been through this to some extent as age issues hit. Being an opportunistic club buyer being the other part of the equation. For me the gaps in longer iron 4,5,6 were the issue. Going to stronger lofts with a smidge more loft between gave me space to figure out top and bottom. So the base set is now 6-G. The 6 iron is 24 or 25 (I have 2 sets) which is the absolute lowest loft iron I should carry. My winter purchases have been filling out top and bottom. Decided to keep the same look in Driver and fairways went D, 3W, 5W. I may only carry the 5 with another hybrid up top and right now have 5 wedges. G at 48, 52, 56, 60. My set to start will be D 9*, 3W 15*, 5W 18*, Hybrid 18* irons 6-G(24-48) 52, 56, 60. I can easily drop two clubs and still cover the gaps. Having better iron spacing does that for me. Good luck!
  2. That and I believe others have said it. PXG is simply discouraging non standard buys. If you want it, we’ll do it - but it’s gonna cost.
  3. I was down to one set last year. Man that was scary.
  4. Just delivered. Final piece of the puzzle. Got this one in 5.5 Evenflo Riptide as it’s lower spin. Should work. Now have Maverik Max Driver, Maverik 3W and this. Right down the line. My thought exercise says this will work.
  5. Look what just came in! Oops wrong thread lol. Guess the answer is nope.
  6. I’ve purchased 3 sets of 13 grips in recent months no issue. They are definitely real deal.
  7. You do know know that Dr. Bob is known in many circles as partner with Bill W, right? (If you don’t that’s ok) Anywho, I suspect the upcharge is a combination of efficiency and supply pricing. Lately I’ve been buying grips off that auction site, not the 360s but GP cord decade and last buy was MCC Aligns for less than four bux ea. I like to keep extras around. Even with the $30 per upcharge the irons are reasonable.
  8. I went through this last year trying older sets I had passed on new. Started the year with NOS 765s and traded backward because I really did not get along with them. Lots of regrips and trials later I have two new sets. Mizuno 921 HM by trade and 0211 DC from a smoking deal at PXG. Other than giving me something to do during dead time I wouldn’t recommend it.
  9. Not me. I didn’t care for the lower loft SM8 so went back to SM7 for 52. SM8 at 56 & 60.
  10. Without specifics you’ll just be churning. You need to identify objectives. If you have someplace to put numbers up that would be the start. If not find a pro and work with him.
  11. I would add PXG 0211 DC to this list. I have the 921 HM and the DC’s are smaller overall. From address they look very clean and have good feel at impact. Glad I took a flier on them during the November sale and there are still great deals on them.
  12. I predict this setup will last until April. Coincidentally that will likely be the month of my first rounds… Maverik Max 9 Evenflo Riptide 6.0 50g Maverik 3W Evenflo Riptide 6.0 60g Maverik SZ Evenflo Riptide 5.5 60g X2 Hot Pro 18H Tour Green ATX 75h S PXG 0211 DC 6-G Elevate 95 VSS S Vokey SM7 5212F S200 Vokey SM8 5610S S200 Vokey SM8 6014K S200 SC Select Newport2 35 The 5 wood is in transit due in 1/20. Things that will tempt me already in house: TM SpiderX Hydro 35 w/ KBS ctour120 Mizuno 921 Hot Metal 6-W Project X IO 6.0 110g. Might add a hybrid after the X2Hot and drop a fairway or wedge. I am definitely playing the first round with the first 14. And that’s what I know for sure. Went all in on Cally at the top (really like the Maveriks w/riptide combo) and omg I have PXG irons. Who knew?
  13. Just ordered a Maverick SZ 5 wood off Cally Preowned. Should be last piece of the puzzle.
  14. I do mostly trades to offset the spend but sometimes not. She knows when I’m heading out so it’s not like it’s any surprise. I talk golf clubs with her a lot, lol. Occasionally I go into great detail as to how the club will fit into my grand plan. This can include my shaft analysis, value proposition of said purchase, it’s a better iteration of that club I loved in 2017 (Q: do you remember it? A: yes, you traded it after two months), or damn isn’t this a pretty club? I really don’t have to say anything but gushing on about it once in a great while it just feels necessary. She knows more about golf gear by osmosis than most guys I play with. Multiple failed experiments will do that. She’s a good sport when it comes to this hobby. Definitely a keeper in all ways.
  15. So instead of sticking with the plan I went off script and picked up a Spider X. Decided I only really need 1 fairway wood. Went with best player available theory and now I have a putter controversy lol. My wife could’ve predicted this I’m pretty sure hahaha.
  16. I ordered the 0211 DC 6-P with the 95 Elevate S during the sale and I am very pleased with them. No rounds just a couple range sessions, but very good overall. Sounds like you found the right shaft for you to go with them. I just guessed right, I guess ha. I would quibble with the G analogy, to my eye they are much more similar in profile to the i series, which I did not have success with. But that’s irrelevant really. They feel good at impact and give solid results. That’s where the rubber meets the road. Enjoy them!
  17. Dogs AND PXG irons. (We have no real good doggies these days, maybe again someday)
  18. Maybe a 5 or 7 wood. Tomorrow. maybe.
