  1. I have a "play set" of hickorys. The irons are a "H&S; Grand Slam" set with miscellaneous woods All ebay purchases. Not expensive by any means. But great change of pace. I play up one tee box. This gives me a new view of the golf course. I have made some modification to the original clubs. I purchased a sheet of calf hide. Re gripped the clubs with the leather strips with the rough side out. Amazing feel. Also have put in lead inserts on the woods. I melted and poured my own lead. Kinda felt like Mel Gibson in "The Patriot" when he was forming his musket balls. The lead was to raise the swing weight of the woods up from C0 to a D. I could not feel the golf club head at the top of the swing. Titliest Pro V1 are the golf balls of choice for me. Not true hickory golf but gosh those Gutta and balata balls are expensive and easy to cut. Four take aways from the Hickory experience Rhythm is important. The wood shafts are not forgiving. Lower trajectory shots with run out are expected. Forget backspin. The sand bunker will get your attention. Your can shave with the club's bounce / leading edge.
  2. Yes.......But as Mystique you get it all. Fantasy=reality
  3. +1 Can hear his comments about sandbangers being putrifying puddles of gutless golfers. Muligans rotting the game to the core. His last words to Dr. Manhattan " JUST DO IT " directed to the golfer taking his seventh practice swing. LOL

  7. Harvey Arsenic and Old Lace +1 To Have and Have Not Duck Soup
  8. JUST SAW THIS THREAD>>>>>AWESOME Might i tweak these 3 points. 1. Retain political parties as these 1st amendment is sacred to most. 2. Retain primaries but the individuals advance irregardless of their political party affinity. 3. Advance candidates with a critical mass of support of the primary voters....of course allowing voters freedom to vote regardless of political affinity in either the primary or finals. I fail to understand the current system where we the voters are forced to expend precious tax dollars to help the political parties choose their particular candidate. This is especially true in the technologically advanced gerrymandering evident in the current political environment. Making safe districts tend to create candidates of the predominate party run the the extreme left or right of center (under the current system). This allows the greatest separation from the other CHOSEN candidate. NOTE THAT CHOSEN candidate may not be their chief rival or the OVERALL voter choice. If party A is the predominate party in a district then maybe 3 party A candidates advance past the primary. Now those three candidates MUST consider party B and C voters AND tend to their base A. Extremism is moderated.
  9. I do not blame any particular party for the diversity of thought we have in U.S. politics....the debt ceiling, health care, view of China etc. WHAT IS NEEDED....is the saving of the parties from themselves. Gerrymandering has created insulated elections with the protected party running candidates to the extremes of their positions. An example is the House is more fractured than the Senate. Term limits do not solve this artificially created polarization. Solution....I hesitate to eliminated gerrymandering as who is the referee on this one? How about eliminating the GOVERNMENT sponsored primary system. We pay for the privileged of helping each party select a single candidate to put forth in the actual election process.....In other words we have less than optimal choices for the majority of the voters by allowing the political parties to game the system. Instead the top voter receivers in the primary REGARDLESS of party affiliation are put forward to the final election. If that be Blue vs Blue, Red vs Red, Tea Party vs Tea Party so be it. The Primary would be a bare knuckle fight but the final election must be fought by courting the centralist voter...WHERE the majority ls by definition.
  10. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Sleepy Hollow
