After asking questions, getting answers, reading threads and accessing all of the great information on this web site I decided to purchase a pre-owned Callaway Steelhead III 5w for $30 off of Ebay.

I went to range at lunch today to try it out and I must say it was a $30 well spent.

Now let me point out that I have not been playing very long and am very inconsistent to say the least.  But from the very first swing of this club (hitting off a mat) I was drilling shots straight as an arrow at least 170-180 yards.  And the club was making a sweet ping every shot to boot.

For someone on a budget,  or someone who just wants a fine club at an inexpensive price I highly recommend the Steelhead III.

Callaway Pre-Owned is awesome.

I had the same Hawkeye driver for 12 years or so,  and decided to pull the trigger on an Octane Tour, and my distance increased by a LOT over my old club.

After a year and a half or so,  I decided to get a club a buddy has that I hit even better,  so for only $90 shipped,  I managed to snag an 8.5* Razr X Black.....   should be here Monday,  and I can't wait.

My Diablo Octane Tour was listed as  "Average" condition, and it looked brand new when I got it......   I've been spying Callaway Pre-Owned's site for a few weeks now,  waiting on a set of Mizuno or Titleist blades to show up.....  no rush to replace my irons, but it's so cheap (comparatively)  to what I paid for my Titleist irons when I got them new, that I don't mind paying the price of what comes out to a few rounds of golf,  to get something new.

Great Club, I have Callaway steelhead III 3w and 5w, got 3w almost 8years ago with steel shaft, 5w from ebay 3years ago, the sound and feel just being great, modern fairway wood just nowhere near it, especially now they use different martial for the head i never found anything sound like the steelhead. So last year reshaft both of them with project x 5.5, it not as far as tm rocketball but it still create distance and flight i want, i think i will bag them forever, and with such old club in your bag, it just make u feel little special when u play with ur mates.

    • If you can’t get there you can’t get there, but if improving a bit knocks it down from being your top priority piece, then there’s value in that. Can’t say too much having never seen your swing.
    • I recently signed up for 10 lessons with GOLFTEC, which includes 1.5 hours use of practice bays for each lesson. These folks claim to have data from many hundreds of PGA TOUR pros to substantiate their various "checkpoints". Most are routine but the one new one (for me) is what they're calling "shoulder bend" at the top of the backswing.  They claim the pros have 0 degrees or, even better, negative a few degrees. This category is supposedly "correlated" with maximizing "power".  To achieve this position it correspondsponds to Plummer's "Spine Extension" in the DVD's which, along with Rotation (Torso and Hips) and Side-Bending yields the optimum "top of backswing" position (for a S&T backswing).  Question #1:  Does this make sense? Question 2: Is this demonstrably (i.e. scientifically) valid?    Though I'm 77 yo I can still reach this position but not easily.  To get there I must rotate my right hip >/=45 degrees which straightens my right leg a lot.  Question # 3:  Since I never got there before does anyone have a suggestion for automatizing this movement before I reach 100 yo? And broader yet:  Question # 4: What  are the experiences of other members who have done Golftec?
    • I don't remember the telecast, Miller didn't mention the US not practicing enough at all? I thought he did. https://golfweek.com/2018/10/21/golf-tv-was-johnny-miller-really-tvs-mr-nice-guy/
    • This is a little tricky to say which is right and why they are different. Could both be wrong or could both be right. First I will say remember that the clubs you were fitting are different and have different specs. Stock length on the 5s are longer than the 2s. Swing weights are also slightly different and static weights are different. 100g DG shaft vs a 112g PX (speaking rough cut weights) also could make differences with lie angle. All this is to say that I think you need to fit each club (ie set) on it's own after picking the shaft and head you want. Because those two things will impact the lie fitting. As a club maker I have also come to the conclusion after years that iron length need be far less rigid in it's measurements. If you feel more comfortable with longer clubs so that you are less hunched over in the short irons, then go with that. A half inch longer iron is not going to make much difference in your accuracy game and if it feels more comfortable then go with it. Just make sure you factor in the weight changes in a longer club because that is way more important than length. After all that lock down the lie angles.
    • I didn't get to play or practice much this year and when I did I barely broke 100. It was so frustrating I thought about quitting, but I kept going for the exercise. I think golf is great exercise.  I played with a guy last year who was probably a 7 or so, anyway, he told me the lows in this game are pretty low, but you just have to ride them out. Eventually you find your stroke again.
