  1. Hi everyone, I would regard myself as a beginner in that I have hit a lot of balls on the range (competently) but have only really played a dozen or so rounds of golf. I wanted to upgrade my extremely basic set of irons and wanted advice between two sets for someone of my level. The choice is between a set of Adam’s XTD clubs (2014, black metal, non-tour) or a set of Callaway Big Bertha (2008, Red coloured heads). Any advice would be Really appreciated please. Thanks
  2. I currently have 13 clubs in my bag. Pretty basic set up I think. I am looking to add a club or 2 to fill some gaps, especially between my hybrid and 5 iron and maybe changing my wedges around a bit to get more consistent loft gaps between clubs. I have attached a pic of what's in my bag. My driver is at the top, it's kind of cut off but it's a cheap basic Tour Edge 10.5° regular flex graphite shaft.
  3. Guy goes in to get a fitting. Warms up, hits his 6-iron. They get some numbers (I'm quasi-making these up😞 171 carry, 176 total. 5780 RPM spin. Launch of 20.1°. Dispersion is about 35 yards. Ball speed is 119.2… whatever. Fitter builds him a club or some clubs, all 6-irons. Fitter is able to get to these numbers: 185 carry, 188 total. 5350 RPM spin. Launch of 19.3°. Dispersion is about 37 yards. Ball speed is 123.4. What does the Guy often see? "Oh my I carry it 14 yards farther!" What should the Guy do? Realize that he's hitting his old 5I and compare the numbers to that club. What's important in fitting is not the number on the sole, it's how well you can perform* at the yardages you need. * This means the dispersion/accuracy, the landing angle, the height, total spin, etc. In other words, don't compare your 6I to a new 6I, compare the club you hit the distance of your fitting test clubs against those test clubs. If they only fit with 6Is, consider hitting your 5I and your 6I (and maybe even your 4I) as a basis for comparison. See if you're more accurate or get better numbers while maintaining the same carry yardage. Ignore the number on the sole. You want to compare the clubs that are the most similar, not the clubs that have the same number on the sole.
  4. Hi Everyone, I just purchased a 60* lofting wedge off of Ebay. I tried it out this afternoon and it is going to take some getting used to. However, I love it. It is so nice to chip the ball up to the flag pin and have it take just one bounce and stop. The down side, is you have to hit it pretty hard and follow through or you won't get there. I use it if I am within 50 yards of the flag. One side note is that I don't use it. If I am uphill of the flag. For that I use my pitching wedge. It is Diamond coated and will scrape the outside finish off of the ball sometimes whenyou hit it. Retired Old Man
  5. Hey guys, I noticed there wasn't a Mid-Atlantic club here so I went ahead and started one. I invited a handful of guys (@RandallT, @DaveP043, @GolfLug, @jsgolfer) to join already just off the top of my head, but feel free to tag anyone from the area who should be in this group. We can use this topic just for general discussions.
  6. Hey everybody my name is Jay and I wanted to post some info on a new high end club company that I'm working with. The company is called Sub 70 and will produce ultra high end, custom built, direct to consumer golf equipment. Everyone involved with the project loves golf and we wanted to create a golf company, and golf clubs, that other passionate golfers would be excited about. We want the products and company reputation to sell itself. We're focused on the technology + the brand, and we won't be pumping releases out every year in order to chase spent advertising dollars. We're really excited about it and I'd be happy to answer any questions you guys have. A few quick notes that are relevant...We are not under the same ownership/management as the Sub 70 clothing line that some of you may be aware of. We own the trademark and will be focusing on providing premium, custom fit, factory direct golf equipment. We're aiming for a Spring 2018 launch and should have a full product line at that time. R&D + other business planning started in late 2016. We've been working with third party testing services to make sure the clubs perform as good or better than other products on the market. Very small final adjustments are being made but everything will go into full production soon.Our club making facility is located in Sycamore, Illinois...about 60 miles west of Chicago. Everything will be built when ordered and we can conduct fittings at the facility.Pricing will be very affordable. I can't give any specifics yet, but you're probably looking at a minimum of a 30-40% discount compared to major brand iron sets. Stock iron shafts will be either KBS or DG and we'll have any aftermarket shafts you want. On top of that, we'll have a very liberal warranty/return policy.We're able to offer this pricing due to low marketing and sales expenses, partnerships with other golf product companies, and a factory direct model which avoids any distribution or retail expenses.One example of a current partnership is True Temper. TT has created three unique Sub 70 ProjectX graphite shafts for our drivers and fairway woods. These are premium shafts that the experts at ProjectX designed with complete creative control. We simply asked them to create what they think is the ideal low, mid and high launch shaft. These will be "stock" shafts for the woods, but again, and aftermarket shafts will be available as well.Our website is being worked on now. Our facebook, twitter and instagram are all live though. We also just launched a podcast that will cover a wide variety of golf topics. We will not be discussing Sub 70 there, but it's another outlet for some creative golf content and discussion. We've already conducted an interview with Mark Calcavecchia, which will be published soon, and have other interviews with Bobby Clampett, Adam Beach (Not allowed because of spam) and Shaun Micheel scheduled. Last but not least, attached is a photo of the MB iron. The cavity back iron will look similar and they'll have uniform lofts for combo iron sets. If you have any questions let me know. Thanks.
  7. Hi all.. I've played golf off and on over the past 30 years (more off than on) but I'm picking it up again.. I've always used my Dads old clubs (767 pro series) which are old tech in a modern world, and I want to get modern... All the advice I see on buying clubs talks about beginners.. I'm not quite that.. I can, for example, hit my old 3 iron 180 ish metres, straight, as well as chip, pitch, putt etc...... but I've never bought clubs.. what advice would you give a first time buyer who is not strictly a beginner? NB I live in France, if anyone has any good buying experiences...
  8. I was digging through the basement of my house which is stuffed full of old stuff. While digging through I found these guys. They are Wilson brand - they say Custom - They say "Ed 'Porky' Oliver" - The wood wedges have B4250 - The irons say 1002. I really have no idea what I am looking at but I am hoping you all can help out. Do you know the year? Are they worth anything more then the nostalgia? They are in pretty good condition from what I can tell. Any information would help, or even suggestions on a better place to find the information I need? Thanks!
  9. Hi, this is my first post. I would appreciate some advice please. I have got old irons (Mizuno Pro II t zoids with regular steel shafts) and a Mizuno 600 driver (approx 2009). my handicap is 4.9. my fairways hit with driver is 53% greens in reg 36%. I have a shotscope 2 which is excellent for feedback. i went for an iron fitting but the quote was £2000 which is too expensive for me. The main benefit with the new irons would be 18-20 yards more distance per club. The dispersion was not improved. I have booked a driver fitting tomorrow. I just dont don’t know whether I should change my irons or driver? I’m finding hard to decide and don’t want to waste a lot of money. My driver clubhead speed is 103.5 Thank you Kind regards
  10. So I am 21 years old, and never had a set of my own clubs, I’ve always used clubs that have been passed download. Currently I am using a set of Ping Eyes from 82 and a TaylorMade Ti Bubble driver from 96. What clubs should I look at? I’m not very good, but when I make solid contact I can carry the ball well, so I would like something that’s pretty forgiving. I’ve been thinking 5-Pw, maybe a Gw, 3 wood and 5 wood, and a driver. Please tell me what to look for and what to avoid, I’m dealing with about a $1200 budget. Any advice would be great
  11. I was curious how many people leave their clubs in the car all season long. It gets pretty hot up here in the summer and I don't like leaving my clubs in my car because I am always worried someone will steal them and I wonder the effects of the heat on the glue, grips and any other issues that might arise from sitting in the car in the hot summer months. When we pulled into the hotel at Myrtle Beach and unloaded our clubs a few older guys asked why we were bringing in our bags. I said two reasons, 1 - I don't want our clubs stolen, would ruin our vacation and 2 - I don't think the heat/cold/moisture of sitting in the car is good for the clubs and bag. If anyone knows of any adverse effects of them sitting in the heat/cold/moisture, please chime in.
  12. I bought a set of these just for the heck of it on eBay about a year ago, and I have no idea what they are. Looking them up online I can't find a picture or anything about them. Anyone what what they are or when they or made?
  13. Q. How are clubs and grips fitted for the individual golfer?
  14. We are renting a house in Ireland and will play golf for 2 weeks next July. We will then take a cruise ship from Oslo to St Petersburg. What is best way (reasonably priced) to ship clubs from Ireland to Florida
  15. I just received these clubs for a Christmas gift and I can't find any information about them. I know that Merit is no longer in busniss but not much else. The club set is single length, 2 tru pw, sw and 60. Anyone know age, retail cost when new, today's value, any history? Thanks for anything you might have.
  16. When we upgraded the site to IPS 4.2 a few weeks ago, it brought with it a number of great changes and new features. One of those was the introduction of "clubs." Clubs are basically sub-sections of the site that groups of people can form and control. A regular member can create a club, invite people to join, and post their own images in their own galleries, have their own topics and discussions, etc. Creators of clubs can assign leadership roles, can limit the club to privately invited members or make them public, and many other things. They're uniquely customizable and controllable, by regular members. Clubs can be created for regional groups of people who want to organize outings (even those like the Newport Cup). Clubs can be organized for some off-topic things like my Apple Fans club to discuss the iPhone, Mac, etc. Clubs can be organized for fans of particular equipment makers. You could start a club for your fantasy football league. The possibilities are endless, and I would ask only that you carefully consider the type of club you want to create. Make it too narrow and it's not going to be very popular (which in some cases could be okay), and make it too broad and you may as well just start a forum topic on the things. But again, YOU can control the club. In fact, when you first create a club, you're essentially the owner/leader/moderator of that club. Right off the bat you can choose the privacy mode of your club: Public - Everyone can see the club and its posts, and can participate without joining. Open - Everyone can see the club its posts, but only members can participate. Everyone can join. Closed - Everyone can see the club and who's in it, but only members can see posts and participate. Users need to ask a leader to join. Private - Only members can find the club and see its posts. Users need to be invited by a leader to join. As a group's leader, you can also choose whether your group has even has Topics or just a gallery, or a mix of both. You can create different "topic areas" too, by creating different "discussion groups." For example, should the "Apple Fans" group grow large enough, we could create discussion topics around just the iPhone or just around iOS, with a separate one for Macs/macOS. Check them out. If you're in doubt about what kind of club you'd like to create and lead, PM me or PM a few of your potential members/fellow leaders. You can find the clubs, always, right here: https://thesandtrap.com/clubs/ Their content will show up right along-side forum posts and topics in the "activity streams" many of you have bookmarked as your home page(s), like https://thesandtrap.com/discover/6/.
  17. Hi guys and gals! As of recently, I am in the market for a new set of irons and am looking for your help. In the past I have been hitting Callaway's XR irons that provide a lot of forgiveness but am now looking to make the transition to a club with a little less forgiveness and more precision. I am currently an 8 handicap. Any thoughts?

  19. How are golf clubs refurbished? What does a Golfer do to maintaine their clubs?
  20. IPS 4.2 is going to introduce something called "Clubs." We had "groups" or something similar on Huddler, and now it's coming to IPS in a more powerful way. https://invisionpower.com/news/new-clubs-r1017/ There's some information on it. My question for all of you… how would you like to see this implemented? Let's use this topic to brainstorm. What kind of club would you like to create? To join? Clubs don't have to be strictly golf-related.
  21. I do like a rusty wedge,they just appeal to me visually.I suppose it's the patina,old school look I like. Anyone else out there have a similar view?
  22. Hello everyone, I recently got a fitting and looking to get new irons. During the fitting a tried out a couple clubs(ap1, ap2,t-mb,callaway Xr,). I didnt really like the feel of the ap1 or XR(ap2 was a little better) but as soon as I started hitting the Titleist t-md I immediately felt a great connection. It wasn't the farthest hitting club out of all tested but it really felt like butter and I was hitting it the best out of all of them. Unfortunately its a little too expensive for me. I was wondering if anyone has some alternative suggestions that would have the same feel, even if its 1-2 years older.
  23. Hey all, My current driver is an R11 which has to be 5 or 6 years old at this point. I'm wondering how my driver compares with current drivers on the market such as M1 or M2. I played in college and average probably 280 yards off the tee. I'm starting to think I'm missing out on distance and or forgiveness with what Taylormade now has available. Any advice/suggestions are welcome, thanks guys!
  24. Club Question Here: So I'm not the best at hitting a driver (I slice viciously), but lately I have been killing my 5 iron long and straight. Drivers are expensive, and I don't see myself stopping my slice anytime soon, so what clubs would you recommend for an iron that I can hit longer than a 5, without sacrificing any accuracy? What brands have the best irons? Should I stick with the 5 or upgrade to a 4 or something lower? All answers welcome.
