I’ve had my forged MacGregor VFoils for I believe about 13 years. Felt it was time to try something new. I got some new Callaway Rogue graphite S 5-P and the 2 and 4 Rogue Hybrids in stiff. I’ve only played nine holes, today, but right out of the Gates I’m very impressed. My MacGregor's, when I hit them pure we’re a pretty sweet feel... but not consistent. The Rogues have a totally different feel and sound.  Consistent but more forgiving I’d say. And they seem to fly a tad further. I like the feel of graphite. Light and something very forgiving about them. As for the hybrids— dare I say they’re easy to hit? Yes. And I’ve never said that about a club. Especially the 2H. It’s a rocket. In only two hours I can tell the hybrids will def be a game changer for my 18 HC game. They looks great. The feel great. They seem very easy to swing and play. I think I’m in store for e very happy relationship with my new stocks. Just thought I’d share. These clubs compliment my Epic driver, Ancienr Rossie putter and Vokies 52/60 and Cleveland’s 49/56. Hit em straight!

Super UB! Congrats mo. Lots of birdies, eagles upcoming with that Pic set.

You kept your old wedges too ai? What grips did you opt for Golf Pride half cord or ?  

 They are awesome sticks aren't they. Prior to my decision to update, I hit my buddies out of his bag on a 5 round weekend outing to Weaver Ridge. After that I could not resist getting ordering mine. UB I'm sure its the same with yours, with mine the ball flies so much higher and 10-15 yards further with that new technology than with my 10 year old Callaway graph Fusions i.e. 5 iron near 200 where I was getting 180's prior.

I haven't had a change to play a round with them yet but I'm confident you and I will be pleased with them. Myself I opted for the 60* graphite as well on my Xs with two wedges, where I opted to go black flat finish on those and updated the Rescue as well.

Holy smokes guys, they weren't shy about the price either @ $1400.00. Add their Driver at $400 and its like they saw me coming. NP its in the budget...

I'm sure it's going to take a little time at the rockpile crushing grapes to hone in on the new yardage with them for you as well. Thanks for pic and post.

 Enjoy'm and lots of luck with them.

    • And with that, you lose. (In the minds of many.)
    • Perhaps that guy is(was) the exception? Plus, I think the 6,000,000 number might be way low. ... not that it matters. I get your point and I also immediately thought of that guy. It's kind of hard to argue that he's not 100% evil. For now, I think it would be wise to leave him out of the conversation. That one is still very painful for a lot of folks.  Having said all of that. I don't think we've ever had a president who is(was) 100% evil. 
    • Yeah, it’s an old topic. Was more appropriate here than the 2021 TOC topic.
    • Haven't posted a video in a while. I have been working really hard on my swing... REALLY HARD.  Anyway, I don't have any new video to post. But I do have some old video to post.  I'm just sticking these here as a benchmark to where I was. The first one is a 2009 video of my driver swing. This is back when I was working with my previous swing coach. I was playing well at the time, handicap was around 10-14. My miss at the time was a snap hook.  I know the exposure stinks. Again, it's just a benchmark for me.    The next two videos are from 2015. At the time I was between swing coaches. My handicap at the time was around 16. Although I distinctly remember playing some great and some horrible rounds at the time. At the time I was really REALLY REALLY fighting the snap hook. Some days the snap hook would be manageable and I would score really well. Other times, I simply wouldn't be able to get off the tee. The swing coach I would get about a year and a half after these videos were taken would be the swing coach I'd end up sticking with up until now.  Again, I'm just sticking these here for my reference.     
    • You really believe that nobody is 100% evil? There are at least 6,000,000 people that would have disagreed with you. But they're dead.
