  1. Nothing wrong with high loft. Not sure my swing speed, but I poke my Dymo2 Str8-fit HL (13*) anywhere from 240 to 265, with no ballooning.
  2. With Golf Pride's large PGA Tour presence, and "knock-off" rights to make the same grip as the Sharpro.. you now have your formula for why GP grips cost 2-3 times as much as other grips, that perform just as good. Why pay more.. unless you are brand •••••
  3. Rest assure you'll never see Stricker have any issues with a flip.
  4. The playoffs are about one thing and one thing only: $$$$
  5. Reached my goal this year. I've broke 90 twice (shot 86 both times). The key has been working on the short game, somewhat, at the range.. instead of pounding driver and irons. On both 86 rounds, my putts per hole were 1.78 and 1.72
  6. Yep! Its a given.. especially since 99% of all clubheads come from the few foundries that put out the stuff, in the first place. Even some of the good clones come out of the same foundries that the big name OEM's come out of! Brand •••••s really get their panties in a bunch when you throw the real facts at them.
  7. Hireko isn't truely "all component". Their Acer line is a clone, that is inspired by Callaway's line.. They are a high quality component/clone though. Integra is in the same boat... they put out their own designs.. but they also throw out some clones as well.. http://www.integra-golf.net/content/view/350/467/

  9. I had them last year. They are very hot off the face.. and very forgiving. I didn't care too much for the really wide soles though.. The long blade length of the irons in that set make them really forgiving.. you will not be able to tell at all on any toe hits.. unless you are out toward the extreme end of the toe.. The 20* and 23* hybrid heads in that set are hot faced, just as the irons.. They put off a "tink" sound when struck.. If you have a solid swing.... be prepared for over 200 yards off of the 20* hybrid. They are a really nice playing/looking set, if you can get past the wide soles..
  10. Rules of Golf only states you can use up to 14 clubs, total. I don't believe it states in there anything about "having" to have a #1 wood or "Driver" or whatever you want to call it. Scorecard doesn't have a requirement also to have to use a "Driver".
  11. because its high priced at Dicks, and the other big stores to begin with
  12. Not sure if they are still on sale, but my local Dick's Sporting Goods had the Callaway HX Tour's going for $29... if you are going to spend $30.. might as we play the better ball.. over the Hot Bite's..
  13. There really isn't an industry standard in the golf world. What happened, as manufacturers fight over the claims to have the longest driver out, lengths have gotten longer. Also, when the shift from steel shafted woods went to graphite; you have to build it longer than steel, to get the driver in the "D" swingweight range.
  14. "single length irons" all have the same headweight. If you try to get your 3,4 and 5 to the same length (as lets say.. a 5 iron).. but do not add any tip weighting/head weighting, you will end up with a 3 and 4 iron that are way too stiff. Basically.. in the "single length" or "1 Iron" sets, all the shafts are tipped to a 7 iron, since all heads weight the same as a "standard" 7 iron head. Lie angles are the same as well. You would have to hope your heads also all bend to that same lie angle.
