I think that's sound advice. No sense jumping in with 2 feet and spending a ton of money. I don't know anything about Slotline. Just looked at them on Ebay, and you can get complete sets of irons for about 80 bucks, with shipping included! Might not be a bad way to start.
But, Callaway is a well established company with a solid reputation. I just bought an Epic Flash Driver off the "pre-owned" site and love it! Their stuff is first quality.
However, if you're asking which will work better for you, we have no way of knowing. In many cases, you buy a set of clubs, and "learn" how to hit them! I had the same experience with my new Driver.
I played well today, and tied my second-best score with a 90. But here’s the kicker: I was +6 thru 13. Yep. I shot 42 on the front nine, then started the back nine 5-5-2-4 (par-bogey-birdie-par). I then made four sixes in a row, +7 on those holes, meaning I still could make a seven on the par-3 eighteenth and shoot 89.
But I hit my first shot into the lake, and I went to the red tees (no designated drop zone), and hit my third shot onto the front of the green, but it spun back off the front and rolled down into the water. Then I hit my fifth shot to the fringe and three-putted. A real choke job on the last five holes. I could’ve easily shot 85 or even better today. But on the bright side, I had two birdies, both on par-3s.
I'm a retired carpenter. I have mildly arthritic hands...they get sore, and swollen, at the drop of a hat. I use mid-sized grips on everything except my sand wedge and putter...which have jumbo grips on them. Standard grips feel thin to me and while I can play with them it isn't a pleasant experience.
As for swing speed: Back-weighting a club (ceteris paribus) will reduce, not increase, its swing weight.
Grips are like shoes...comfort is paramount.
Yes, they do. But in your previous post that I quoted, you seemed to imply that only riding cart revenue helped the course. All revenue helps the course. You said you didn't blame courses for banning pull or push carts. You did not specify if they were owned by the golfer or not. FWIW, if a course did that around here, and I owned my cart, I would no longer play there! So, how does my lack of revenue help that course?
