Ping s55's. C-tapers. May be the best irons I have had. Shockingly forgiving for a compact head. C tapers are the only shafts that felt good and kept the 7 iron spinning under 7500 rpm.

The G25 is a stiff shaft, and while the Golf Galaxy guy said my swing was in the lower range for it I recently totally overhauled my grip and am (for now) swinging a bit slower. I probably would have stuck it out, but the Covert (brand new in plastic) popped up on Craigslist for $140. I talked him into $120 and away we go.

First time at the range felt really good, and I seem to be getting the same distance as the G25 if not a little more (I hit them back to back). Definitely more forgiving, although I only have a medium-bucket sample size.

I also like the red. So there.

Anyone interested in a used G25, stiff shaft?
Get fitted by the head guy at redtail

At least you get the trackman that way, and the fitting is free if you buy the club through them

Re: What golf gear did you buy today?

after missing a 4 or 5 from inside 10' which cost me around 5k, the putter ended up in the bottom of a lake.

Went with the new Taylor Made Spider Blade and it's really solid. Also picked up the Rocketballs stage 2 3-wood (tour 14.5*) and it's super hot compared to the R11 i was hitting.

Picked up a Scotty Cameron Monterey today after an atrocious putting performance on Tuesday with a client in Las Vegas.
Used it for my round today and felt a lot more comfortable.

Re: What golf gear did you buy today?



Anyone tried this (or similar technologies)? The reviews I could find were quite positive.

It was a bit of an impulse buy for me, but then again, most golf related stuff off-season is

Re: What golf gear did you buy today?

i'm suspicious of products like that...a trackman costs 25k, seems hard to believe that you can get a similar product for $250

Re: What golf gear did you buy today?

Picked up a set of Taylor Made RBZ Irons, I like them but really have to get used to the extra distance. Added almost 15yrds+ on every iron was over shooting everything.

Replacing my 5yrold Burner driver I've been shopping around for a good deal on a RBZ stage2 which I had test drove vs the R1.

Now I'm reading the reviews of the SLDR in which many call it the best driver in years.
I haven't tried one yet but will wait for the price to drop to $300 if I like it.

Anyone else touting this club?

Re: What golf gear did you buy today?

I've probably bought over 100 used clubs on ebay over the years and never had a problem. So much cheaper than anything else.

The only thing I'd say you have to worry about is brand new stuff going for ridiculous low prices.

Re: What golf gear did you buy today?

Unless you have lots of money and don't care, it's a really fish move to buy new stuff off the rack at stores IMO.

I have a C-130. Best cart bag ever. Would never carry it and don't like it much on a push or pull cart. Have a carry bag for when I walk.

Taylormade is just a marketing genius. Get so many people to buy the same driver with a different name
