I wonder how long these have been around. Pretty sure I've seen them used awhile back ago.

Ping Pioneer cart bag - I'm partial to Ping bags since I've used a Hoofer for carrying since I started playing golf 20+ years ago. Don't love how the carry bag tends to twist strapped into my push cart, so decided to try out a cart bag for days when I use the push cart.

How's the mirror working for you?

So last Friday I bought a dozen ProV1s and TP5s for me and my son to play Friday and Tuesday. Just now bought a set of M6 irons for my son.

It has definitely helped my setup, and having a square face at setup. Also has a couple holes to put tees in, so you can do a gate drill as well.

Just purchased a new fairway wood (Taylormade M2, 3HL 16.5-degree) to replace my 13-year-old (!) Burner 4W.

Just for the heck of it, since I haven't spent money on anything in a while (thanks, COVID), I added the matching 3H to replace my old Nike.

Just purchased a weight kit for my Edel putter and got some new head covers for my driver and 3 wood. Hopefully will be getting some new Edel wedges in the near future.

Bought a new set of Majek Hybrid Irons. 

Senior flex, 3 through PW

Played with them Tuesday morning in a 3 man scramble. We shot 1 under par. 

Played 2nd time with them this morning and finally started feeling the difference and started swinging easier but still pretty aggressive. 

I had been playing an old set of MXD irons with a stiff shaft. I played them well but was losing distance due to me getting older and slower. (sigh)

I also started to stand up straighter and slowed my back swing down and was very pleased with the performance of the hybrid. 

PW = 100 - 110 yards

9 = 110 -120

8 = 120 - 130

7 = 130 - 140

6 = 140 - 150

5 = 150 -160

4 = 170 - 180

3 = 180 - 190

5 wood, not hybrid, Callaway Epic = 150 - 160 yards

3 wood, Ladies Tour flex, 170 - 190 yards (with a little roll out to usually 200 if I really lay into it.) 

Hot Launch Driver = 200 - 230 yards

It is definitely different and my "other" golfing buddies, who are younger than me don't seem to understand why I want to go to a hybrid. 

I find them easier to hit, and more forgiving. 

Won't play again until Tuesday morning but I am very satisfied and looking forward to our Tuesday morning scramble. 

One more thing, I find my distance increasing as I get more comfortable with the hybrids. 

I still use an "A" wedge and a 60* loft wedge.

    • Greetings, What information are you looking for? Here's a Big LB 3 wood with some specifications listed: BUY GOLF CLUBS ONLINE, USED AND NEW HONMA BIG-LB 3 WOOD GRAPHITE PRECISION REGULAR FLEX #D2011 - HONMA Not sure if that's the same 3 wood as you have. There are quite a few Big LB woods and drivers out there.    As @Vinsk mentioned ebay has lots of irons so do the other trader sites. The 767's are not as commonly traded as the 747's and some other Honmas. Post a picture of the irons that you have and the shaft that's in them. I'm often out there trading clubs and stuff. I can add your 4 iron to my list of stuff I'm keeping my eyes open for and if I come across one I'll let you know.  As a way to expand your options would you consider a 747 4-iron with the same shaft and grip?    Anyhow, welcome to the forum.
    • Last night, I was on the range working on the clearing of the hips on the downswing as well as trying to shallow out the club a bit more to start the downswing. As far as swing thoughts went I was trying to feel my right elbow coming in towards my side and my left elbow going out towards ball slightly at start of downswing. In order to effectively hit the ball I could tell I really needed to clear my hips from that position.  This was actually a pretty consistent day as far as divots go. I don't believe I chunked any and there weren't many shots that felt "bad". However, I was having trouble hitting the ball straight. When I started trying to shallow club I began pulling a lot of shots that a light draw flight which was causing a lot of my shots to get well left of the target.    I was really I'd be able to see some shallowing of the club here considering I felt like I was over-exaggerating the elbows. Maybe I need more hip turn at the beginning of my downswing? Also, is my club face too open at the top of my swing? I couldn't for the life of me get the toe to be any more pointed down than it is in the swing above. 
    • Hello and welcome to TST. Small suggestion first...use paragraph breaks when you’re texting a lengthy post. It’s quite an eye strain otherwise 😉. Have you entered your club description into an Ebay search? Sometimes you’ll find information that way. Especially value wise. Have you tried to call Honma and ask about your clubs? Glad you found a set like you did. Be wary of making such posts regarding their astonishing performance..the Golf Gods are listening and don’t take to kindly those remarks.😙
