Surprisingly, a Honma TW-Forged #3 driving iron (secondhand), then a Graphite Design Tour AD GT 6X for an old V-steel 4w I had.




Edit: I say surprisingly, because I was pretty happy with my Honma TW-U #3 utility, but the price on the newer model was too good to pass up. Better feel too.


Also, this came on Jan 2nd, though I ordered and paid for it online before the end of last year:

Just bought the 54* Mizuno S18 wedge to match the 60* I got for Christmas. I’m not a huge fan of changing wedge brands, but these are miles better than the Callaway’s they’re replacing.

Driver: Ping G400 Max 10.5*
Fairway: Epic Flash 14* & 20*
Hybrid: Ping G410 22*
Irons: TaylorMade M CGB 6-SW
Wedges: Callaway PM Grind 59* and 64*
Putter: Evnroll ER2/Spider X
Ball:  Titleist Pro V1

I might regrip this winter, but so far I've got enough freebies for Christmas (balls, new driver shaft). Also apparently won a Cleveland (TFI 2135) putter in one of the WRX giveaway threads.


I probably won't have to buy anything, outside of membership dues and perhaps some Trackman time with the new driver shaft (Aldila Tour Green 70X, playing at 44").

Maybe a fairway wood. Either a Titleist or a Cobra F7 to line up more with my driver and hybrid. Other than that I am 100% happy with my bag, which is unusual. Definitely going to regrip everything in the bag though.

Cobra King F8 Driver Aldila NV-2KXV Green 65 Stiff (9 degree setting, Draw Weight Placement, -3/4")
Cobra King F8 3-4 Wood Aldila NV-2KXV Blue 70 Stiff (14.5 degree setting, -1/2")
Callaway Apex 19 3-4 Hybrids (Project X Catalyst 5.5 Flex, -1/2" for both)
Mizuno JPX-900 Forged 4 Iron Thru G Wedge - KBS Regular Flex Steel Shafts (I keep the 4 iron in the trunk and alternate it with the 4 hybrid depending on which course we are playing or weather conditions)
Callaway Mack Daddy PM 19 Grind 54/14 & 58/12
Scotty Cameron Phantom X6 CS (35")

Found a decent price on a couple dozen yellow AVX balls, looking for them to arrive soon.


After years of saying I'd never found anything that works better than a ProV1x for my game I'll be darned if I didn't try a sleeve of the AVX and get hooked like a trout! Leave it to me to start Jonesing for the only ball out there more expensive than a ProV...

New years night I ordered some shafts - FST 90 to replace my stock T-step 90's on my R7's. These cheap ($9) performing shaft are similar to TaylorMade ones. In fact, FST supplies TM with shaft the last couple years.


Also ordered on the same night, XE1 65* wedge... I was just curious when I saw the C3i commercial... For far less cheaper, the XE1 would be fun to sample with before It goes on Ebay.....or sell it to a friend. But you never know, if this works, it'll stay in the bag.....
