A new feel for the New Decades....

Posted

Pros: Multi-compound, great looks, softer feel, upper cord portion less abrasive than standard New Decade grips

Cons: A bit less tacky than standard New Decades and softer corded upper may provide less grip in humid/wet conditions, only 3 colors currently available

I've played standard GP New Decade grips for several years now, having transitioned from my beloved tour wrap full-cord grips.  To be clear, I LIKE a firm, abrasive grip that doesn't allow the club to slip in the wet, hot, humid conditions here in Central FL.  I've tried soft, squishy grips and don't care for the vague feel. Upon opening the MCC Plus4's, my first thought was that they looked a lot like the ND's that I've been enjoying.  A full-cord upper with a bit of a "wrap" look and a non-cord lower.  The new Plus-4's have a little more alignment patterning, but remain a very sharp, good looking grip.  The black/gray in particular ...

Good product at a good price

Pros: Solid construction, ease of adjustment, stylish looks

Cons: Somewhat heavy buckle

This is a very solid belt.  A little wider than what I normally wear for golf, but that's more a commentary on my lack of style, than on the belt itself.    Nice supple leather that needs no break-in.  Super easy to trim at the buckle end for a perfect fit.  As others have said, order too big and simply remove the buckle (no tools required) and trim appropriately.  It takes no more than one minute to do so.   The real unique piece is the buckle.  It works as advertised with no holes and a more secure lock up than most friction fit buckles.  It's a little tricky to unbuckle at first, but becomes second nature after a few tries.  One...

Top quality, high spin, premium ball

Posted

Pros: High spin around the greens, extremely soft, consistent, and very durable

Cons: May be too soft off the putter for some, slight distance loss with my 103 mph swing speed

I was fit to the B330 S using Bridgestone's on-line selection guide.  I was a little surprised at the outcome because my 103 mph driver swing speed is just under their recommended 105mph threshold for this ball.  The on-line fitting was more in-depth than simply asking about swing speed though, so obviously some of the other factors tipped me in this direction.   I've been playing the ProV1 almost exclusively for the past 3 years, so all comparisons are based on that.     Specifications:   This is a 4-piece, Urethane covered, premium ball.  Bright white.....noticeably brighter than the ProV1.  Very clean, unobtrusive logo and a somewhat...
