    Turned out I played too long that day after losing my calluses and ended up with a blister.
    I finally got new strings this afternoon. Ernie Ball Super Slinkys for my bass and Elixir Light Nanowebs for my accoustic. I haven't strung the Elixirs up yet but am loving the much needed new strings on my bass. I couldn't tell you the last time I changed my strings and oh what a difference it makes!

    Yeah my A/C is broken as well. We've been getting temperatures around 100 lately and it is absolutely killer to drive... I park outside so I leave my windows up and break a sweat within seconds of getting in my car. Today it started raining while I was driving so I had to roll my windows up and I thought I was going to suffocate.

  3. morocco added a post in a topic Need help deciding which club set to get   

    I do still have my old clubs, and would definately use them for a bit while getting back into the game... if they weren't a couple of feet too short. Needless to say I've grown some since my golfing days.

    Ha it's not too reassuring getting these "neither" answers. I was under the impression that it'd be hard to build a decent set of clubs (bag included) for around $400 without getting a prepackaged one such as these, but I'm open to any suggestions.

    Does anyone have any experience with any of these clubs? I keep going back and forth between them, seeming to lean mostly towards the Wilsons, but I just don't want to end up buying a set of cruddy clubs.

    Need help deciding which club set to get
    I used to go golfing quite often when I was younger and was pretty good for my age, but that was a good ten years ago so I don't pretend to know what I'm talking about now. I'm interested in getting back into the game and am getting a set of clubs as a gift. My options have been narrowed to two sets from different pro shops in my area, each around $400. The first set is Wilson Deep Red, including 1, 3, and 5 woods, two hybrids, 5-9 irons, PW, SW, LW, and putter. The second set is Adams Tight Lies, with 1,3, and 5 woods, 4-9 irons, PW, SW, and putter.

    Obviously the Wilson set comes with more clubs (14 as opposed to 12), which is a plus for me because even though it will probably be a while before I get to the point where I'm using all of the clubs, I'm a broke college kid and don't plan on adding to my bag anytime soon. I also like the design of the Wilson bag more (it has more pockets, tee holders, more comfortable padding, etc).

    It sounds like it should be an easy choice, but from my limited understanding Adams seems to have a better name (which I admit I'm a sucker for) and I don't know what differences in quality there may be. Any advice I'd be able to get from you guys, as a neutral party, would be greatly appreciated. Here are a couple of links that a quick google on the sets brought up, for reference:



    Sorry for the overly-long post and thanks in advance!

    I took piano lessons early in elementary school but I don't know if I made it a whole year before dropping that for the electric bass. It's definately something I'd like to pick up again sometime, though. I played the viola for Strings class in 4th or 5th grade, which was fun but not something I stuck with.

    I just dusted off my electric bass and accoustic guitar today and played (or at least tried to) for a couple of hours. I'm going to try to get in the habbit of playing more often so I don't have to relive the pain from today of picking them up just to realize how much I've forgotten. First things first... I have to get new strings asap.

    2000 Ford Escort ZX2. My girlfriend just leased a 2007 BMW 328i. Getting it with her has me really wanting to get a new car, but seeing as I'm a poor college student I'm trying to restrain myself. I guess I'll have to settle on a new set of clubs for now.
