  1. Well, it appears this is our new home.. Don't know what happened over there but always like the sand trap so we'll just bring our ugly faces here I guess. Hope they don't mind a bunch of obnoxious people showing up in a bunch.
  2. Hit every Mizzy they had at Golf Galaxy today plus Callaway Apex and a Ping S55. The S55 (cast) out did them all for feel, distance and accuracy. Who would've thought.
  3. Very good condition black dot (normal) lie. Ping grips. Ping True Temper reg. flex shafts. Asking $230 (includes shipping in continental US). Lighting for pictures made the clubs look gold. They are not.
  4. I quit hunting, sold my rifle and now I'm going to buy a new set of irons. I've always wanted a set of Mizuno's (probably) but need to ask which set would you buy. I grew up learning on McGregor muscle backs and recently had a set of S59 Pings so I'm not a total hack with irons. I can shoot anywhere from 37 to 50 for nine holes depending on where my head is at. Usually low-mid 40's for 9. Here are my choices. Comments please. Mizuno MP-H5's Mizuno JPX-850 forged Srixon Z545
  5. That's for sure. And how about we start this whole thread all over again. Make believe this is my first post. Last summer (July 2010) I bought a new (leftover 2009) Nike Tour cart bag, their best bag for around $150. Then a couple weeks ago (warranty still in effect) the rivet pulled out that holds in the putter tube. It appeared there should have been a washer behind it that wasn't put on. In any case Nike said to first go to Dick's where I bought it. I didn't purchase the extended warranty so all I could do was ask Dick's the best way turn in the claim at Nike and they said they were no longer responsible and couldn't help. I thought they might give me some help because I had spent a decent amount of money there over the last couple of years but oh well. When I contacted Nike the person (Paul) said they would first have to review the bag and to send it in etc. I asked if there was any way (photos?) that we could skip that part but he said that was their policy. I needed the bag as I'm playing 3-4 days a week so I told him I'd fix it myself and I did. The only thing I guess I can really complain about now is the original quality of their best bag. Has anyone else experienced any problems with Nike golf bags?
  6. Well I totally disagree with what you consider cavity backs but in any case this thread question meant only "muscle back" blades? Note what Ping says in their description attached...
  7. I concur also but I HAD a set of these and they were some of the most forgiving irons I've ever hit. Corey Pavin won the US Open using these also. (That sticker is the thingy that absorbs the vibration). My SIL plays these now and does real well with them. ALL the new irons with the NASCAR junk all over them are ugly. Give me an old set of Mizuno's. Simple, clean and pretty.
  8. So both the S59 Ping and M58 Mizzy are cavity backs....
  9. This rib place in Cincinnati... http://www.montgomeryinn.com/
  10. LAG. Don't consciously think about your wrists on the downswing. Look at all the swing photos of the longest hitters over the years and you'll see lag.
  11. The irons haven't changed for years other then they've (again) de-lofted them to make them longer. Driver's are still getting better mainly due to the face technology that makes hitting the sweet spot less critical. And the shaft technology also makes a new driver better then an older one. The ball is what is really helping people hit longer.
  12. According to Wishon YOU are the engine and the shaft is the "transmission". But really who cares, I know what you mean.
