  1. I've bought and sold a ton of crap on Ebay over the years, including clubs, with zero problems. My tip to you is to do intensive research on what you're looking for so you know all the facts / specifications / options, etc. Look through sellers' feedback and definitely contact them multiple times via email, phone call. Most high-positive feedback sellers don't mind at all answering multiple questions about their item(s) and a lot of sellers run their own golf shops on the side and just use Ebay to move their inventories. I've bought Ping woods, Vokeys, and a Scotty on ebay for under
  2. I sent my vokeys last month to Wedgeworks to get the same thing you're interested in. They did a phemoninal job and their customer service outstanding. Every question I had was answered via email within 24 hours (usually faster) with detailed responses. I would email them about your shaft question. I'm sure they can help you out.

  4. I ordered my Mizunos through my local shop and got fitted for PX 6.0 (shaft optimizer). Custom built from the Mizuno factory and to my door in 4 days. So yes...Mizuno does offer PX shafts.
  5. I just acquired a new SM4 60.07 and only hit a few balls to compare to my SM 60.04...I feel like I still produce more spin with the old, non-conforming grooves of the SM, but once I get my wedges back from getting reshafted I'll be able to run some more comparisons. If possible, get one of each and head to the range to compare for yourself. The look of the SM4 line is definitely nicer I think...but not too worried about that. As long as it performs!
  6. Decide on whether or not you want to keep the hybrid or 3i in the bag...don't keep both obviously. Then, you'll be able to carry 3 vokeys if you want. If you are uncomfortable hitting 1/2 - 3/4 shots with PW, then I would suggest getting a GW (51, 52*) to go along with a 56* and 60*. Find your yardage gaps with the wedges to determine the makeup / proper lofts. My PW is 46* and I carry a 52, 56, 60. My yardage gap is roughly 10-12 yards between each. I'm very comfortable with that setup. Oh, and good call with getting Vokeys. I'll never play a different wedge :)
  7. Get fitted for proper grip size. You'll benefit greatly from it....I did.
  8. I'm pretty sure you can buy putter covers through Scotty Cameron's website. Don't know how much they go for, but worth a look.
  9. I got fitted last year for new irons - specs are +1/2 length, standard loft, flat 1 degree - ProjectX 6.0 shafts. I was coming off of standard everything, off the shelf irons....totally saw a positive difference in the custom fit irons. The problem I have now is I'm hitting the majority of my wedges thin from the turf, topping shots and sending them yards past the green - standard length, lie, lofts 52.12, 56.14, 60.04 Vokeys w/ wedge shafts. I hit the 56 and 60 the most during average round. These wedges I bought 3 years ago off the shelf way before I knew about custom fitting
  10. Just played 4 consecutive rounds over the July 4th weekend (Friday-Monday). Played a round by myself on Friday at a new course and shot an 84. Hit more greens in regulation than normal...putting was awful. Saturday-Monday played best ball and my foursome used my shots the majority of the time. Hitting fairways and greens consistantly. Great results with the new sticks. Project X 6.0 shafts give me a very nice mid-high ball flight. Hitting long irons much higher AND straighter than Burners. Ball lands soft and sticks which is amazing. Great feeling. Even with off center hits, still ge
  11. Great to hear. I pick my Mizunos up today at the shop. Can't wait to get out. Good job with the Ebay thing...I've picked up a few clubs (brand new) and have saved a nice chunk of change.
  12. Thanks! I pick them up on Wednesday. The shaft optimizer recommended the Project X shafts since I have a high swing speed. Can't wait to get out on the course.
  13. So I made the decision and went with the JPX 800 Pros. Double checked and picked up the AP1s and even the AP2s, just for kicks. Looked again at the Adams CB2s and although they are a sweet looking club, the slightly smaller head kept me away. Got fitted tonight and the Mizuno Shaft Optimizer is a pretty cool system. Recommended the Dynamic Golds, Project X, and KBS shafts. After hitting the 3 shafts, went with the Project X. The DGs and KBS just felt too heavy. Will get my prefered grip put on when they arrive at the shop on Wednesday. 4-PW +1/2 1 degree flat Can't
