  1. Ahhh yes, those are Maine colors! I knew there was something out there that those pads made sense for. but they'll also make good "Ice Boltz" pads when I get them Still waiting... hopefully early next week!
  2. I know it's been a while, but, a couple things... #1: No, managers basically cannot argue balls and strikes anymore. Those that do are immediately thrown out of the game. That's an unwritten rule in the umpire book now. #2: Baseball management is NOT a formality, and goes way beyond pitching changes. Lineups and pinch hitting matchups, throwovers to first, steal attempts, bunts, hit-and-runs, even individual pitches in late innings... all called from the bench. These calls are relayed to the base coaches in offensive innings, or the catcher in defensive innings. It's quite sim
  3. Hehehe... I will never cease to be amused by very young children in goaltending equipment that looks like they have three other children strapped to their body. And all the while defending about 20% of a 24 square foot net.
  4. http://www.ebay.com/itm/321151881882?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649 Wooooooo! I'm so excited! As you can see, I play for a team that wears blue and white, so I went half insane when I saw these on eBay... Gottem for $750 gently used. Woulda been close to $2500 new! Sorry golfers, I love ya, but I'll always be a hockey player :)
  5. Well mine are only about 2 years old... I'm not saying they're amazing but no better or worse than what's on my other clubs.
  6. I'm looking into getting my driver cut as well. Indeed, I have the notoriously too-long Burner Superfast 1.0... I'm 5'6"... would the old standard of 44" be a good start?
  7. This is one of the many reasons I'm simply no longer tempted by the ProV1 hype... Other reasons: -Generally designed for higher swing speeds and lower handicaps. [that's... definitely not me.] -Urethane cover - Fabergé egg fragile... one cart path or rock = range ball. -They generate a ton of spin, but hit 'em wrong, and they'll spin the wrong way too... -I hate doing the trendy thing. -I'm just not good enough to be hitting a $4.00 ball... (I know, the B'stones are also $45 a box, but the ones I used I found in the woods...)
  8. But the reason that's happening is because of your "this post is not racist!!!" qualifier. If you didn't post that at all, I don't think anyone would have called you out on it...
  9. Yeaaaaah... +1 for the Watsons. There's a new set now, and they actually look really awesome. I personally think the grips are just fine
  10. Yeah, because you know the saying... "Golf is a game of yards." I can't tell you how many times I've said "Dammit, wish that ball landed just a yard or two to the (left/right/closer/farther away)
  11. Okay... so this is now the second time you've deliberately changed my words... you're on a hot streak. Perhaps you should re-read the part of my post that states "That could be the difference between the trees and, well, not in the trees." Is there any part of that sentence that mentions the fairway? Did I say fairway or even imply it? Are there not golf holes with woods that are very much in play, especially dog-leg holes? Would you rather be 1 yard in bounds than 2 yards out of bounds? Oh, and you're just flat wrong again about the data. His swing speeds were similar,
  12. Uhm... perhaps you should re-read the part of my post that states " Is there a golf ball that cures slices? Of course not." I never said, or even suggested that. But his anecdotes about phone calls to Titleist refute his own data. I'm citing simple facts - 7.7 is less than 11.3. That's not up for debate. Granted, he has a very small sample size. I'd be interested to see him hit 50 of each ball and see the dispersion results.
  13. Just don't give up. The club exists dude. Or, if you buy a gap wedge, get a matching sand wedge, and ditch yours. Choice is yours, but I think everyone here would agree that the round-peg-square-hole solution is not a good one.
  14. In other news: -Nike manufactures "bunny slope" basketball shoes with tiny pogo sticks glued to the bottom of each one. -Head Tennis attaches laser sights to their new "bunny slope" racquet collection. -Bauer Hockey sells 6'x4' piece of sheet metal with a handle attached to it for beginning goaltenders. -UnderArmour now making wide receiver gloves that automatically excrete industrial grade adhesives when exposed to pigskin. You know the old saying... "If you can't beat 'em, cheat."
  15. *repeatedly mashes the "sarcasm button" on his computer...*
  16. PS: I do believe those gap wedges have a standard loft at 50 degrees... I looked at some other eBay listings for Burner 2.0 gap wedges and they said 50 degrees.
  17. Yeah, they don't let you do that signature until you've been a member for 10 days and have at least 10 posts, if I'm not mistaken... Don't worry, it'll come soon. With the wedges though... The choice is yours, but dude, you just got new clubs... I highly suggest you don't use a band-aid solution on your new set! Before you make your decision though... something like THIS may solve your problem... http://www.ebay.com/itm/BRAND-NEW-TAYLORMADE-BURNER-2-0-A-WEDGE-GAP-GRAPHITE-STIFF-/261234220826?pt=Golf_Clubs&hash;=item3cd2c5df1a Boom. A MATCHING gap wedge. Now if you bo
  18. Do you mean the Japanese company that makes clubs with completely arbitrary star ratings and prices all of their products in the $2500-$10,000 range? This is a great suggestion. Since they are super expensive, I assume they are the best clubs ever. Thank you, I will buy them now.
  19. Reply to the above post: Doesn't look like a myth to me, if you actually look at the data. The ProV1 resulted in an average shot that dispersed 11.3 yards to the right, as opposed to the DT Solo which dispersed an average of 7.7 yards to the right. That's a difference of about 32%, or 10.8 feet. That could be the difference between the trees and, well, not in the trees. Is there a golf ball that cures slices? Of course not. But I've without question hit balls that mitigate them, and balls that exacerbate them. [vocabulary FTW]
  20. Gonna have to disagree with the ProV1/ProV1x as a suggestion... first of all, the OP is a 30 handicapper... doesn't make sense to carry a $45 ball, or a $25 used ball for that matter. Second of all, urethane balls are notorious for exacerbating slices and hooks due to the very nature of the urethane cover interacting with a clubface. Third of all, these balls tend to be for players with higher swing speeds, of which the OP is probably not one of them.
  21. Well, it's certainly not a problem if it works for you... Though it may be somewhat indicative of problems in your grip. Does your right hand get irritated a lot? Remember, the right hand is more of a guide hand, whereas the left is your "power" hand. Might be gripping it too hard with the right.
  22. Yeah, +1 for the lower clubs first. I think you get more shots for your money that way... especially if you're the type of golfer you say you are.
  23. Hello. I am a golfer. I want new clubs because I have more money than brains. There are many clubs that I am interested in. Which ones do you like the best? I will compile your opinions, and then go to the store to purchase the ones that generate the most votes without even trying them first. And if I do badly on the golf course with my new clubs, I will come back here and blame all of you.
  24. Okay, that is a good thought to keep in mind. I have to say though, the golf manager at my Dick's is no idiot. He's a bona fide "old golf pro" as it were. I once watched him reshape a bent shaft of mine with his bare hands and a golf towel. Anecdotes aside, he's anything but a novice to clubmaking. My instincts tell me he might be more hit than miss.
