    Should I Lower Driver Loft?

    Just so you know what you are working with, that SLDR was designed to be a spin killer. Super low spin and low launch which is why TM had to do their whole loft up campaign. Definitely need to work on getting those numbers down through your swing because other than maybe using a heavier shaft, the club is not the issue. Also if you struggle with accuracy and consistency with this driver, I would probably look elsewhere, aka not the SLDR, as that head design is very unforgiving.

    High COR Irons

    This is a huge misconception about COR and face flexing. It is not a trampoline that bounces the ball off the face. It is actually true that the slower swing speed will benefit less from the COR. What face flexing is doing is minimizing the deformation of the golf ball. The more the ball compresses (or deforms), the more energy is lost in the process. Based on the mass of the golf ball (46g) versus the club head, say 200g for a driver, this deformation has a larger impact on the ball than the club. I have read 80% to 20% ball to head. What flexible faces do is allow the head to deform more at impact and therefore allow the ball to deform less. This is what results in faster ball speeds. So the slower the swing speed, the less the ball compresses in the first place compared to a faster swing and the less impact COR has. I am not sure how the use of a low compression ball would work in this senerio. Might it have a greater COR influence?

    G10 Driver Cut Down

    This topic comes up often. A shorter club is easier to make solid contact with. More control, better impact location. Whatever slight loss of head speed is negated by better contact thereby ball speed stays consistent and often higher on average.
  4. Whatever gets the ball in the hole. I have 3 putters right now. Two Scottys and a TaylorMade Rossa with some substantial modifications for weighting. I always default to the Scotty Studio Stainless because I love the look behind the ball and the feel is good. Also have a Scotty Am Classic Bullseye which I love but don't use as much even though it's my favorite to putt with. I can justify the price on a Scotty however because at the end of the day, a traditional shaped Scotty in good condition holds it's value better than any other club in golf without a doubt.

    Upright Lie Angle?

    I know how some people feel about static fitting measurements and would probably recommend an extensive and expensive full fitting but I still believe that a simple lie board check will tell you if the irons need an adjustment in lie angle. Start there before you go trying to bend clubs that may or may not bend.

    Okay, I am pretty sure that can't be true and he just doesn't know. It does prove we shouldn't care.

    58 vs 60 Degree Wedge

    58 will be more forgiving than the 60. I doubt you will ever get into a situation where you are thinking, "Man, I wish I had 2 more degrees to pull this shot off".

    They charge $30 per club??? Wow. I don't think I appreciated how much of a snake oil salesman they are.

    Agree with the above comments about just let the club maker assemble and do all the trimming. Always want to butt trim after you epoxy. Not sure about that EOD and if that is taking a final grip on measurement or not. Hard to say for sure. Looks like they fitted you at 1/2 inch under standard. And the hybrid at 3/4 under standard. A 1/4 inch one way or the other won't change much in the end but I would either check with them or just get the club maker to take a quick measurement. I am more surprised about how they recommend Pureing everything on that sheet! Those guys are really trying to nickel and dime you. Those Aerotechs are great shafts and don't need it, nor does the Fuji hybrid shaft.
  10. I am just not sure why you want to do this. The counterbalanced putters like this are designed this way on purpose. You are going to all this trouble to basically make the putter back into a traditional putter. Unless you already own it, why not just look for a traditional 35 inch putter. Sounds like you prefer a bit more head weight, so find a heavier one or put a little lead tape on the head of one you like.
  11. It's actually the opposite. Long putter heads are much heavier than the standard version. They have to be when you ad all that extra shaft weight on the back end. Usually 100 grams heavier give or take. As far as the length goes you know many of those counter balanced putters are made longer on purpose with the idea being that you grip down in the middle of the grip not on the end like a traditional putter. If it's that kind of design (which it sounds like), then gripping down will also flatten it out and bring your ball position back to neutral below your eyes.

    Lie Angle Question

    Not sure how that is different from what I said but the point was length increases lie angle.

    Lie Angle Question

    No. This is wrong. Lengthening the club increases the lie angle. It's about 1 degree for every 1/2 inch of length.

    Rogue or Rogue SubZero?

    Yes. It does add some weight but you can get the results of improved sound with a small amount that will barely change the SW. The sound is in fact a major reason for doing this process. Some people just do it for sound, some do it for weight and sound, but it's always a factor. Otherwise pros would just be lead taping the heads.

    Rogue or Rogue SubZero?

    Just a quick fyi for people complaining about the sound/feel of a particular driver such as the Taylormades. This is an easy fix with a little Hotmelt. Puts a little more weight in the head and dampens out the vibration providing more of that thud people seem to prefer. Most tour guys have done this to their Taylormade drivers which is why they sound different from one bought off the rack. It's a simple fix that shouldn't cost you more than $10-$20 with a good club maker.
