  1. If you're looking for inexpensive gloves that are tackier than Weathersof, you could try MG gloves. I don;t find them to wear as well as Weathersof gloves, but they are softer and tackier (and cheap). https://mggolf.com/
  2. I guess the real question is...does it matter? (Of course it does, just found this interesting) https://mygolfspy.com/real-scotty-vs-fake-scotty/
  3. Pure wraps for me. Love being able to put them on with a compressor and not needing tape. I can change them out in under 15 minutes (full set).
  4. My wedges are 46, 50, 54, 58, and it gives me perfect 10 yard distance gaps. PW - 125 GW - 115 SW - 95 LW - 85 FWIW- I recently changed from Vokey 54 and 60 wedges, to Harry Taylor 54 and 58, and I am loving that combo. I can do way more things with the the HT 58 than I could with the Vokey 60.
  5. Now that's a pretty good idea.....
  6. Google found this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-CUSTOM-MADE-HIGH-LAUNCH-WIDE-OS-IRON-SET-3-PW-REGULAR-IRONS-GOLF-CLUBS-CLUB-/390497550917
  7. Yeah, I don't get why there are still 14 spots when there is putter well. It triggers my OCD tendencies a bit having an empty spot in my bag..... But the putter well is great. I am not sure why people wouldn't like them. Especially with the advent of oversized putter grips.
  8. So it seems that the new trend has been to move the external putter well from the side of the cart bag to the front on new models. I am not a fan. The issue I am having is that having the well on the front makes the depth of the well greater than that of the putter, which means the putter is hanging by the putter head. This makes getting the putter out more annoying. Also, I use a putter towel that clips to the putter shaft (which is awesome), but that wouldn't work if the entire shaft goes into the well. Does anyone still make a cart bag with the putter well on the side? Or if not, one with a well that isn't as deep or deeper than the length of a standard putter? I can't for the life of me figure out why they decided that the well needed to be relocated....
  9. I have a Harry Taylor 54* (along with a 58*) out for delivery as we speak. They look like really nice wedges and are currently inexpensive. https://www.harrytaylorgolf.com/collections/series-305-wedges/products/ht-series-305-wedge-satin-finish
  10. It's state specific. A lot of states require the retailer to honor the marked price (if it's lower).
  11. I did not like the 771's, but you should certainly hit them. You mentioned that he carries Miura as well. If he has the tiny Miura blades, hit them for fun. They are crazy small. They won't be the right clubs for you, but it's such an odd look, being so tiny.
  12. I also have the Wishon 919THI driver (separate fitting), and that is the most forgiving driver I've ever hit. Tom designs some great clubs.
  13. Love my 565's. I have 5-AW (7 clubs) with Rifle shafts, and the whole thing ran $980.
  14. I had a fitting for a Wishon driver last week, and should be picking it up tomorrow or Friday. It was a nice driver, but nothing Earth shattering. The irons, however, are sweet. I hit the fitter's personal 6 iron (565) and it was unbelievably smooth. I thought I missed the ball, it was that smooth. Trajectory was perfect, and it carried at least 5 yards longer than my 6 iron, and my 6 iron is stronger than the Wishon. I was extremely impressed, and will be getting a set sometime either later this year, or at the very beginning of next season. A lot comes down to the fitter, though.
  15. I just switched to Vice Pro balls and love them. I had bounced around among a few other balls (TM Project (a), Bridgestone B330RX, Srixon Q-Star) but never really settled on any. I think I'll be sticking with these. I get good distance, and they stop just well enough. I don't spin them off the front of the green like I do with Pro V1s, but I get a nice hop and check out of them, which I really like. They feel really nice off the putter face, too. Just ordered 5 dozen with my company logo so I can pay for them through the business.
