    thank you. I think at this point its just depending on how much you want to spend. thanks

    Check out "Medalist" grips, I just saw them at Golfsmith and on their online store. They have full cord grips for $2.49...

    Funny how good designs seem to be copied be everyone... To be fair I was actually thinking mp-37 before mp-14. I never had mp-14s but I did have a set of mp-37s and they were some of the best looking and feeling irons I've ever had the pleasure of hitting. I've never been a fan of TM irons but these are ridiculously sexy looking, so much better than the swiss army knife looking irons that they've been putting out for the last couple of years. mvmac if you do get a chance to hit these and/or do a review please do tell as I am very curious as to how they compare to good forged sets.

  3. As a few others have said, use a wet towel and/or use a brush after each round or even after each shot.  Would recommend a nylon brush, can find it at any golf store.  I usually clean my grips at home, which is just wiping them down with a wet towel and letting them air dry.

    I think wiping down your grip is the most understated part of cleaning any club. I'll admit that I just started doing this about two seasons ago but it makes a huge difference, I actually clean them after rounds and wipe them down before every shot. And if anyone doubts its effectiveness just watch any touring pro in their pre-shot routine...

  4. lol I wasn't amazed by them when I first saw them but holding them and putting them down they look quite nice. I originally wanted the 825's but the EZ are cheaper and look pretty similar just different colour.

    I must say that I haven't hit the 825s but I have hit the "shovels" and I currently use JPX-800 Pro 4i and 5i and I love them... they are a little heavier but they have lighter stock shafts in them. You can also get them used for pretty cheap.

  5. [URL=http://thesandtrap.com/t/47724/ping-eye-2s-are-the-best-irons-ever-created]http://thesandtrap.com/t/47724/ping-eye-2s-are-the-best-irons-ever-created[/URL] Starts off a little slow but gets better and better. Classic thread gone full-retard. Enjoy.

    I just read through that whole thread... classic. I will say that I have a set of Ping eye 2s in the garage and they are absolutely the ugliest irons I've ever seen or played. Period.

  6. Yawn everyone of these threads has at least one don't mess with the game guy! I thought the OP asked about what color you can see easiest when hitting driver. The yellow ball works best for my old eyes cos I hit it so far, the whit ball just disappears at about 270m, still climbing!

    I'm sorry but "spellcheck" please... also "cos" is not a word. The word that you have been so desperately searching for is "cause" which originates from the word "because".

  7. I just got some cheap e6 orange for winter balls, apparently they were ltd edition, and have an almost shimmering sparkley kind of finish, brilliant for winter sky's and a bit of fog as I discovered last week!

    Those are actually really cool looking, I have a buddy that plays those and they do have a really unique looking finish. The cover almost looks transparent?... Still wouldn't play them though :)

  8. No thanks OP. There is something extremely satisfying hearing that sound of the ball rolling in the hole when you make a good putt, a sound like no other. Take that away from me and you're taking away a large part of satisfaction of the game. I'm also the guy that takes the flags out on the practice green (providing there is nobody else on there).

    While I disagree with he OP I have to say that it is much more satisfying to hear the ball hit the pin and drop in, for that reason I like the pin in (especially on the practice green). I'll admit that I even leave it in when I'm playing alone to save time...

  9. It's probably the simple answer you were looking for, but: tradition. There's no tangible reason why cotton pants woven a bit thicker and died blue should be any less nice than cotton pants cut a bit more thin and dyed tan or black. But your forefathers wore wool, so enough with those jeans you lazy hippie slacker!

    I couldn't agree more with this... other than maybe the lazy hippie slacker part. I think that when some say that jeans can be more presentable than shorts I think that you have to look at what most shorts that are being worn on a golf course really are... a shorter version of slacks. They are made out of the same material and are in general the same colors, they are simply shorter for various reasons of comfort. And I will state again that jeans simply belong on a golf course. There is no argument that you can present that will make me believe that you have no way of going and getting a pair if khaki shorts or slacks.

  10. Pros flush the ball by accelerating to their finish not to impact!

    Not so much (in Borat's voice). Most pros actually begin to decelerate right after impact... some even decelerate their hips and body before impact, by decelerate I mean that some stop the rotation of their hips before impact. If you want to see "accelerating to their finish" then watch the long drive guys.

  11. I've never worn a pair of jeans golfing in my life, but this is 100% right.

    I agree that I have never worn jeans to a course to play (practice facility are a different matter) I would have to disagree with the quoted statement... I was always taught that you do need to pay respect to the course repairing your divots and such but you pay respect to the game of golf by the way you dress and act. As I have said before I am not much of a slack wearer due mostly to where I live but I still think that it is important to look like you give a hoot when you are on the course. I was taught the same about going to church when I was growing up, God could care less what you are wearing and you won't be asked to leave the church based on what you are wearing but you should show the proper respect for building that you are in. BTW I'm not comparing God/church to golf, I'm just making the point that you dress for the occasion that you are attending. And I am inserting this disclaimer because I know that someone will will try to be a smartass. :)

  12. Trying to settle an argument with golf buddy.  In sunny and humid Florida, I wear shorts more often than not.  Other guy says we should always wear slacks, I say dress comfortable and nice.  Do most prefer shorts or slacks when playing a casual round?

    To answer your original question, shorts every time except for during the winter... and even then sometimes shorts. For those of you who are golfing mostly in Montreal, PA, CO, or pretty much anywhere but the dirty south, you may never understand the nasty humid Florida heat. So as someone who golfs down here I may have to laugh at anyone who wears long pants anytime after May and before November... I'll say again shorts.

  13. I saw a few other threads on this but didn't want to thread-jack. I've been playing since I was about 11 years old and have come close more times than I can count but never made one until yesterday, I had pretty much resigned myself to never making a HIO so to say I was excited is a huge understatement. I have to say that the best part if my HIO was the fact that the beverage girl was up by the hole when it went in and as we were jumping around like idiots she drove up to the tee box, we still were not sure if it had gone in (the green was a little bit elevated and 182 yds away) so we asked like little kids with huge s**t eaten grins on our faces "did it go in?" to which she responded "f**k yes it went in". Absolutely classic... I said "classic" not classy :)
  14. For those who tried/played both, how would you compare these two? I'm currently gaming Mizuno MP-33 and looking for forgiveness. Thanks for any input.

    I won't say that I am providing a critique of either club because I'm a Mizuno sell out(I did play Ping i3s in high school) but I will say that I've struggled with the same thing that you are struggling with. I love the feel of mp-33s but I struggle with the 6i-4i... You may want to give the jpx-800 pros a shot, last year I switched out my 6i and 4i from mp-33s to jpx-800 pros and bent the 6i three deg strong (don't carry a 5i anymore,extra wedge instead). I will say that they are a little bit "clicky" but they are not bad for a game improvement club. Hope this helps.

  15. Green conditions play a big role..... A golfer with a 12 index rarely makes pure contact, so I question whether creating spin is what he is experiencing.  If he nips the ball that clean, he shouldn't be a 14HC.  If he plays a course with very soft greens, he might mistake  playing into mushy greens for creating spin.

    I have to agree with this. When I'm playing in the dry months I rarely get any club other than wedges to back up but during the wet months (right now) I spin the ball back with almost every iron or wedge. A good example, three weeks ago I spun a 7i about fifteen feet off the front the green. Also saevel, if you happen to be a "picker" then you are correct, you prob won't get a ball to spin when you take a big divot because you have struck the ball poorly but if you are a "digger" then you will not spin it more with a picked shot... Steeper angle also does not always mean taking a bigger divot but steeper angle generally does mean more friction between ball and clubface (i.e. spin).

  16. Geez, I thought I had a problem because I do all the stuff mentioned above. Well, most of it, anyway. Cool, guess I am ok then. I will add one: When going for a drive through the country, you envision how every little meadow or clear spot amongst the trees would play as a golf hole.

    I've designed prob 30 different golf courses on various road trips... :)

  17. 9iron, this discussion is not about things from 5+ years ago. This has been said before, but I'm giving you another chance to see it.

    When trying to make an argument or assess someone's actions, integrity or honesty many things are permissible, including past actions, especially actions of the same subject matter (applying the wrong ruling when you obviously have a very good understanding of the rules). I don't exactly think that Tiger is necessarily a man of character but in this case you have to assume that he saw what he said he saw, otherwise our whole system for rule enforcement in the game of golf is bunk. Not to mention that, once again, it took a hi-def slow-mo camera shot to prove that the ball did in fact "move", and even then some people don't believe that it "moved".

  18. The boulder thing continues to serve as an example of how Tiger KNOWS the rules. I don't particularly think he's completely awesome for that move, but in no way do I think that move was bad. On a scale of -10 to 10, that move rates as a solid 2 for me. That boulder thing was an example of knowing the Rules and using them to your advantage - completely legally. So we'll have to disagree on that one. I don't think that's how it went down, and my proof amounts to the same as yours - your opinion.

    I have to agree that Tiger prob did not intentionally break the rules but you have to admit that his knowledge of the rules, as pointed out above, does make his actions seem a little fishy.
