These very literally just arrived today. 
For the past 2 full seasons, plus a part of the season before that I have been playing Volvik Vivid Sherbet Orange Golf Balls almost exclusively. I like the way they feel, I like how durable they are, I like everything about them. But I mostly like the way I can see them. My old eyes aren't what they once were. I watch for sales on them and I normally pay between 22 and 25 bucks a dozen for them.

Now the New Vivid has hit the shelves and there's also now something called VividXT AMT (Advance Material Technology) the XT AMT is designed for somebody with just slightly faster swing speed than the standard Vivid. (At least that's what it says on the carton.) Anyway, in theory that should be me. Both are available in my favorite Sherbet Orange. So, when Rock Bottom Golf had their 25% off Saint Patty's day sale I took the chance to grab up some new nuggets to try out. The Vivid XT AMT's go for $34.99/doz and the new Vivids are $32.99/doz. But with 25% off that comes out to about 24 to 26 bucks a dozen. Which is kind of my unofficial price limit for a new dozen balls. 

I have not hit them yet, but the obvious thing I noticed is they've added something called V.A.S. or The Vivid Alignment System. (Can you say going after the Callaway Triple Track.) On the XT AMT's it's one alignment aid 360 degrees around the ball, on the standard Vivid it's very triple track-esque.

bought this on a whim, good deal on woot.  Want to try just playing to the middle of every green more this year instead of lasering every flag.

This is one I’ve used for the last 8 to 10 rounds: 1A8A19A0-4879-49C5-A0BF-6EEAA959AA34.jpeg.eeb94a0fff41cbe616da65dbb4dd07c3.jpeg

It tried to escape earlier this week, but didn’t go far enough OB. I may just retire it out of pity. On the other hand, it’s still playable.

Used Clicgear 3.5 cart. I wanted to get a set of carts for my cottage so we don’t have to haul them there. Looking for another.

Damned, that's a great looking set up you have there. I dig those grips, and even the bag is coordinated.  NICE!

👍

I've never hit them. But I must say the New Callaway Mavriks are good looking clubs.👍

Stainless 735.CMs 3-PW with new grips for 100 bucks on Craigslist. Have only played them once, and haven't decided if they will replace the irons in my signature.

How about last golf thing I FOUND???  Yesterday, while looking for something else in my crowded closet I found 3 sleeves of Snell golf balls I forgot I had.  If I dig deeper or do a Spring cleaning maybe I'll find some ProV1s.

Otherwise, 14 golf spikes.

    • Day 49 - More swings working on my new setup. 
    • Hello everyone. The golf gods have pulled me back in, and I’m hoping it will stick this time. Just scheduled my first lesson in over a decade, so maybe some financial investment will help keep me in the game. Here are a couple of swings from tonight. Now that I’m back, still working on getting more depth in the backswing.    9i DTL: 60-70 yard LW DTL: Plan is to get a couple of lessons and then a fitting. These clubs are too short and 17 years old at this point. The instructor fits Mizuno and Ping, and the new Hot Metals Pros look great. The new Ben Hogan’s are also quite attractive, but I won’t have a fitting option. 
    • As someone who plays roughly 6 month of the year with rain gear I feel qualified to say, most, if not all rain gear is an enormous struggle to fit.    Let’s start with pants. They are ALWAYS too long with a waist that is not matching, usually too small. Foot-Joys pants are lousy elastic in the waist and I have to wear a clip at the bottom to avoid dragging my pants all over the golf course. Nike has the best in my opinion. Sizing is easier and not ridiculously long length.    Jackets rarely offer much “give”. Most are hard to swing in. I have purchased the $250 top of the line, same problem. I recommend undersizing as many of the good brands will do a fair amount of stretching. Foot-Joy when undersized is good, also I like Nike undersized also. Nike has quite a bit of give and is the best in my opinion.  I also have an Under Armour that gives nicely too.    I don’t like pullovers but that is probably personal preference. Hard to get on and off easily. Don’t get me started on zippers. Foot-Joy has nice zippers, everyone skimps there and it is the first place the jacket begins to break down. 
    • Augusta National giving patrons rare chance to purchase merchandise online For the first time, Augusta National is offering online shopping -- but only to patrons who are on... Seems like all of us could find someone with tickets and get Masters gear. I had a friend go in 2010 and my hat could use an upgrade. 
    • Sounds very interesting. Thank you for sharing the opportunity @cipher  Particularly your accommodations, that is awesome.    Similar to @DaveP043 I am in interested but undecided camp. I would like to keep an eye on it as it gets a little closer.
