  1. I just wanted to say thanks for the reviews here. I am going through a "ball test" this year to replace the Penta that I have been playing since 2010 (and am finally starting to run out of). I was going to skip the Chrome Soft due to how unimpressed I have been with Callaway balls over the years. The comments here have changed my mind on that however and, unexpectedly, I will be including the Chrome Soft in my test this year. Thanks everybody!
  2. I'm on the opposite side of the coin as most. I prefer a smaller club head myself. I'm swinging a Yonex Ezone Type 380 at the moment which, as far as I know, is one of the smallest (if not the smallest) drivers in production at the moment.
  3. Probably not, at least not unless you know the exact head weight of the wedge. Even if you pull the grip, it might not be stamped in the manner expected anyway.
  4. Agree, 100%. As if my sig didn't imply that... ;-)
  5. FWIW, the TT "wedge" flex shaft is simply an S200/S300/S400 (depending on the weight that the wedge OEM was aiming for). Personally, I like my wedges to share the same shaft as my irons. Mainly for consistency. If I were to use a different shaft in my wedges than in my irons, I'd go stiffer/heavier in my wedges and short irons for more control and lower trajectory (ie: the same school of thought as a "flighted" set of shafts, more or less).
  6. [b]Scotty Cameron Newport Button Back[/b] - 34" - 100% factory - stitchback grip - stock shaft label - original leather headcover - original 15g weights This putter is in great shape with only minor nicks here and there. I've done my best to let the pictures show the actual condition. Please view the full size images. There is a minor nick in the topline (as pictured). In the correct light, this is barely recognizable from address, you really have to be looking for it. Serial number on shaft is intact and easily readable. Note; 2 of the grip photos have an incorrect white balance that threw
  7. I've played Scratch wedges. Still have mine. I'd play them more but I made the change to CC grooves this year and my Scratch wedges are not conforming. Scratch wedges are some of the best made. I rank them right up there with my Miura wedges for sure.
  8. Same here. That's a big reason I tend to avoid various Facebook promotions and the like. It's disappointing that so many marketing departments are taking such a deep dive into Facebook but... it's (apparently) what the masses want.
  9. Ad is closed hence the Tournament Blades are sold. I ended up replacing them with a second set of 1957 Baby Blades in the end. Well worth the transition. I love my Baby Blades. IM me if you are interested in contact info for my Miura dealer. Top notch guy and better prices on Miura than I've ever seen elsewhere.
  10. That's what I was thinking. I had one of those days today as well. Not a big deal in the big picture of things. I'll give it another go next time and hope that it goes better.
  11. I hear the exact same comments about my entire bag from time to time, save the Titleist fairway wood and Scotty putter that is. Yonex? Miura? Scratch? Where did you get that stuff, K-Mart? LOL :-P
  12. I just might have a Yonex stick in my bag... They're great clubs. They're new Ezone musclebacks look fantastic! This Ezone Type 380 that I have is an awesome driver. I've only got a few swings on it so far though so the jury is still out.
  13. 30 minutes a day to lowering your handicap. My 7 day plan. [list] [*][b]Day 1, Short Putting[/b] - Everything inside of 5 feet - I start by finding a nice straight and, preferably, level 4 to 5 foot putt. I'll stick a tee in the ground at my chosen point and grab 3 balls and proceed to stroke putt after putt. I LISTEN for the ball to fall in the hole, especially to start with. I want my head to be still and my stroke to be fluid and free of any compensations (no manipulations of the hands and/or wrists). My goal is to make at least 25 in a row and no fewer than 58 out of 60. After a while yo
  14. With my S400's, my ideal distance with my 5-iron is 192-194 yards. I've been hitting it about 198-200 yards with the C-Taper. A nice little bump in distance that's taking a little bit of time to get my head around. I wish that I could help you on how the C-Taper compares to the Tours. Unfortunately, I haven't spent adequate time with the Tours to offer any insight. I've hit them a few times here and there but not the extent that I would be able to offer any type of accurate comparison.
  15. First I'll provide a little bit about my personal background, game and equipment. Then I'll get into my thoughts about the C-Taper shafts. If all you really care about is my thoughts on these shafts, skip a head a bit... Anyway, my golf game has been pretty limited this year for a number of family health issues. This review is not the place to get into the details but, in summary, my 1 year-old has some severe heart problems that will require ongoing surgeries and invasive procedures for the rest of his life (including 2 open heart surgeries this year). Somehow I've still managed to play and p
