  1. Just to bump this one more time. The square face with the driver/wood is killing me. Even though it's not adjustable, can it be adjusted anyways (by a professional)?
  2. Go out and hit. It can't substitute for anything. I enjoy my Diablo Octane and I've only had it for a week or so.
  3. A premed student at Northwestern University (go 'Cats) majoring in Philosophy while being in a heated, honeymoon-like relationship with golf after a four year hiatus.
  4. The e6. No question for me. I look for accuracy off the tee and feel off the irons. My short game is substantially easier to handle if the ball is finding the green consistently.
  5. Quote: When I looked at the Bridgestone site, and they always recommend the E6.. unless I lie to them and say I do not fight a minor slice on tee shots sometimes. I was hesitant to hit the same brand consistently, but I decided to for a round and haven't looked back. Getting used to a ball and having confidence in it is a key step in the right direction. After looking through my "reserve stash" of 500 or so, I found a dozen E6s and went with them. Relieving to have done so. If you want a deal on a certain type of ball, let me know! I'll have it.
  6. Obviously most of us have an assortment, but if you had one "go-to" ball, what would that be and why? What was your first experience with it and how did it/does it affect your game? I go with the E6. I had a nasty slice off the tee for a long time and in the midst of correcting my swing with more wrist-turnover I started using it and haven't looked back. Absolutely improved my game. It's great off the irons and gives consistent distance. I never knew how much a ball could impact one's game, especially when the ball is used exclusively. I carry Callaways and Titleists as well, but only for holes with big hazards off the tee or near the green. A friend of mine and I walked a river through a local course and came up with over 600 balls, 500+ of which are an assortment of Bridgestones, Callaways, Nikes, and Titleists. Even with that being said, and those balls being in great condition, I buy my Bridgestones new. What are your thoughts?
  7. Just ordered a Diablo Octane Driver and a Diablo Octane Tour 3-Wood and I was curious as to whether the faces can be closed by a degree similar to my T-Rail Baffler hybrid. I tend to hit the ball much straighter, specifically off the tee, when the face is closed slightly. If there are any problems with closing it from a swing standpoint, let me know. Thanks in advance.
  8. Just purchased a 54.12 and 58.8 from CallawayPreOwned. Both wedges showed up in phenomenal condition (bought them "Like New"). I can't fully attest to their performance, but after 39 holes (yes, 39), they've definitely improved my short game. The 54 is enough of a difference from my PW and covers the range where the PW becomes far too much. I love the 58 around the green and is by far enough loft. I would recommend those but it really comes down to personal preference. It's a place to start, I guess. Their warehouse sale ends tonight. I paid $132 for the two clubs. You can find several options that are ridiculously cheap. Check it out!
  9. How are they selling these drivers for so cheap? They're selling the Razr Hawk for $148. That's crazy.
  10. So is it necessary to "customize" the grip at all?
  11. Thank you for the response! I was looking at the 54.12 and 58.8. Would you believe that those two, plus a PW, would be enough to get me around?
  12. Anything to say about the X-Series Jaws wedges? Edit: Last question - If I were to go with two wedges, would it be best to go with a 54 and 58, or 54 and 60. I'm guessing they're won't be much of a difference, but it doesn't hurt to ask.
  13. Honestly, it depends on the quality of the club. I could go as low as $140 for a set of Callaway Jaws wedges otherwise maybe up to $250. It's worth it. Anything in particular that sets the Vokeys apart? I've had them recommended already.
  14. Hey everyone! At this point, I only have a 56* sand wedge, and I severely need to add a gap wedge as well as a lob wedge. So at this point, a 52*, 56* and 60* would be ideal. If you have any personal recommendations, let me know! I'd be glad to hear what you all think. Thanks in advance.
