Good deal?

10 posts in this topic

Just picked up the driver in the sig today. After a lot of research and hitting used drivers this was the one for me. My SS is right around 99 mph.

Picked it up for $89. Good buy? Everyone has had nothing but great things about the shaft. I loved it and really lowered my spin rates.

I could use someone's help on this.

After hitting the driver I noticed a slight rattle noise in the club. Let me explain though.

There is nothing loose inside the club. It seems to be one of the weights on the sole It did not come with a tool so I brought it into golfsmith and he tightened up for me.

The only time I hear a different sound is when I hold the club with the grip towards the ground and tap it on the floor. Obviously I wont be doing this but I just want to make sure I will do damage to it.

Thanks

What "different sound" and what weights? The 9064LS has no weights. Out of curiosity what shaft do you have in it? I don't understand your sig 1 bit.

Sorry for late response

This is the driver

And this is the shaft

I sent it in to adams and they are fixing the slight rattle noise coming from one of the weights.

Hope this clears it up for you.

This could even be a case of some redundant epoxy that gave way and is "floating" within the head of the club, causing this slight rattling noise. If this doesn't sound like what it could be, I would honestly ignore it if you do not see anything cosmetically wrong with your club. If you've taken it in for an inspection and they "tightened" something up, there was obviously nothing else wrong with the integrity of your club that could be seen.

As far as whether or not you received a good deal, anything that builds confidence and produces results is a good deal (within reason obviously, i.e. not paying more than the value of the club like a friend of mine did when he bought a used Tom Watson mirror LW off of a random golfer for $40 when they're new at GG for $29.99).

When I bought it used it did not come with anything besides the standard weights. I am interested in changing the length but obviously need to get the other set (spacer/weight)

So far so good. It was an upgrade from my old cleveland HiBore. They said that the rattling noise would not affect playability but I did however read a post Erik wrote about how it could possibly change the swing weight. If that is true, I wanted to send it in regardless because it became a mental thing.

      I'm not disagreeing with you on your other points, but in Super Bowl 12, two players split the award, so it seems they can give the MVP to multiple people, but often don't.  In 49 of 50 Super Bowls held so far, only one person won the MVP, just like in 49 out of 50 the winner(s) of MVP came from the winning team.
    • Putting downhill vs uphill (2x distance of downhill length) poll
      OK, I'm sitting at home twiddling my thumbs today, so why not do the math.  A PGA Tour player in the middle of the pack makes something close enough to 75% of his 5' putts that I'll use that as my sample.  If he has 100 five foot putts that he's going to one putt 75 of them.  Considering my video example above, he's leaving himself another of equal length so for those 25 he misses, he'll also miss 25% of those, which is between 6 and 7.  (Since it's the easier uphill putt, let's call it 6.)  That would be 131 total putts for an average PGA Tour player in Levin's situation above. (For the record, he made his second putt today.) The same PGA Tour player makes 25% of his 10 foot putts.  I would make the argument that a straight uphill 10 footer is almost impossible to three putt, but I'd probably make that argument by saying "he'll make that 99 times out of 100."  So, for that reason, let's say 1 three putt.  Regardless, it's not even really close ... 25 one-putts plus 74 two-putts and 1 three-putt puts our hypothetical pro at 176 putts total in those 100 attempts. I'm no Brain Scientist but, I am pretty sure that 131 is significantly less than 176. Soooooo, I guess I'll go with the shorter putt. Just to humor myself though, I did suggest that I was thinking about longer putts originally, so what happens if I use the same situation but go with 8 and 16 instead of 5 and 10? I don't know the answer because PGAtour.com doesn't have stats for individual distances outside of 10', but I suspect that the results might be similar.

      I have never experienced wind quite as brutal. Carts racing all over the place, I carry so the bag acting as a sail and blowing me backwards. Still, enjoyable all the same?
    • Donald Trump for president?
      I think in the end some people are desperate enough to take a job that might be like $2.50 an hour. Does that make it right to even offer a position at $2.50 because they can? I could easily say that's taking advantage of someones misfortune.  I do think wages at some level should be tied to cost of living for the area. $7.50 has much more buying power in Ohio than in NYC. Maybe tying it inflation as well.  If price of basic good, housing, vehicles, ect... go up by 2-3% a year and minimum wage doesn't. It just means more and more people are losing buying power on things they wouldn't have to worry about. Over a 5 year period they just lost 10% of their buying power. They have to buy 10% less food than before.  I think that issue might be more of the Governments involvement in controlling inflation. Maybe the 3% per year increase has been an unforeseen issue. A lot wages have been tied with a step increase by inflation. Minimum wage hasn't. 
    • Donald Trump for president?
      He may have a big ego, but I don't understand how this precludes him from being able to make positive changes. In fact, it is likely to help as he would not want to fail as President. He does not want to let the American people down, he wants to go down in history as one of the greatest Presidents ever. You don't do that by alienating the middle-class, you do that by reviving it.  Trump is not afraid to take on big corporations and the special interests like the Koch brothers. Those guys control more than any of us realize, and it takes someone just as big to take them down. Sanders, etc. will just get crushed by the special interest groups. It takes a lion to fight a lion. We're going to have to get used to his abrasive style, it will come in handy later on.
