  1. Good day all I am curious (in learning mode). Would you carry one fairway wood and a driver with 4 wedges (50, 54, 58, 6x) or a driver, 3 wood, 5 wood and 3 wedges (50, 54, 58)? My bag has a 4 wood and a 7 wood along with 2 hybrids (4 & 5) and the 3 wedges.
  2. I've been using an old Callaway X Series 3 wood and 7 wood for a long time. Over the years I've tried several newer options but I always go back as I like the smaller heads. does anyone know of a newer option that also has the smaller head?
  3. Hey guys, I did a quick search with no results (although I would think there is an existing thread on this): I may be in the market for a fairway wood (5W) and was wondering about the differences (of any real significance) b/w the M1 and M2 models. From what I gather, the M1 has adjustable weights (which I care nothing about) and the M2 is more forgiving. True/False? Any help would be appreciated!
  4. I have a habit of rotating my fairway woods. Once I throw down the bucks for a driver, it stays put for at least 5 years. My irons (MP-14), over 20 years now. My putter changed from a Ping B-60 (20 years) to an Odyssey Marksman (past 10 years). Still have the B-60. My wedge is Cleveland Tour Action 56 deg that I've had for over 30 years. I've killed a rattlesnake with it. The fairway woods are like old girlfriends, you think about them once in a while, but the memory fades. There is always that one that seem to stick in your mind the longest. Mine was a Ping ISI 3- wood with a regular flex steel shaft. So I searched and searched without my wife knowing, and set a date ( 1 week shipping) to get reacquainted with my old friend:) Diablo move over..... Here's a picture. After all these years, I don't look that good either.
  5. Last summer I switched wedges from CG14s to Calla MD3 family, and got an XR16 Pro driver (R-flex) which straightened out my tee shots. Now, I've made a couple of other changes, mainly by chance "good deals" over the winter which are working out. New FWs and a new putter. I reluctantly have put aside my Tour Edge XRail 4W and 7W for Callaway 815 Alpha FW which I kept stumbling across. I got an 18° with the idea of using it at 17° as a single FW. Got an unhit model at a Thanksgiving area clearance sale for $129. Then, I stumbled across a slightly used 14° Alpha, also for $129 at Golfsmith switching to GG. My original plan was to open the two up to 16° and 20°, but the 15° setting gets the ball up fairly well. So, I've got the two at 15° and 19° for the short run. The Alpha head has two sole weights: put the heavy one up front, and you get a more penetrating flight. Put the heavy in back, and you get higher launch. I'm keeping heavy in back. I got to try both out at Myrtle Beach last week, and they have equal distance to the XRails but the Alphas seem easier to keep on line. Both have the Speeder 665 R-flex shaft (62 grams), with a 3.9 torque. My driver has the Speeder 665 TS R-flex, but the standard 665 works better for me in the FWs. The Alphas are a tad heavier overall, which helps. On the week, I had three 15° shots that traveled 220 yds. total. The Alpha misses tend to end up in first cut of rough, rather than in never-never land. I got the same tip from two different pros at the February golf expo. I had too much footwork in my swing, which sometimes led to poor balance. I've focused on keeping my weight back on the heels, and this has really helped keep me on balance. My wife says I'm swinging the best and most balanced in 10 years. At MB, I had a couple of spells each 18 where my swing got flaky, but was able to recover both times. Had trouble shaking off the "bad return" last two years. I shot a 91 at Heathland (five pars, including two 2-putt pars after approach shots from fairway bunkers) and a 96 at Shaftesbury Glen (weird back nine at the Glen: a birdie, a double b, a triple bogie and six bogies). I played tees measuring out at about 6,000 yards at both courses. As for putter, I stumbled across a local shop which has a good inventory of the Slotline Inertia putters. The heads have tungsten heel and toe weighting, and I got the SL-583F model. Slotline got sold to Dynamic Brands about 5 years ago, and I'm not sure the putters are a production model anymore. The putter had really straightened out my line, and I just need to work a bit on distance control. For set-up, my hands should be about a half-inch in front of the clubface for a square hit and good roll. I sometime put the hands back too much, and hit too much on the upswing and leave the putt short.
  6. Hi guys, I know how this is going to sound (Oh no, Shane's asking another set make-up/gap analysis question. Ahhhhhhh! Let's run and hide!) But it's a very valid question... I hit my 3 hybrid pretty well, (I finally stopped pulling it) but I believe it's too close in distance to my 4-wood (225 vs 215). My 4-hybrid is around 200 ish... ( I have a little gap down to the 5-iron... frankly because I just don't hit it much) would I be safe to drop the 3-hybrid? I thought of carrying both a 5h and a 5i to fix the "gapping issue" but I usually just grip down on the 4h when I'm between the two... I understand it drops me to 13 clubs; but the other alternative is to drop the 4- wood but that creates too much of a gap.
  7. Does anybody have the inside dope on why Callaway would cancel the successful V Series driver and fairway woods line up? The V Series was made light, fast and came fitted with very good Bassara shafts. At D0 swing weight, they were likely aimed at senior golfers with slower swing speeds but then there are a lot of us out there. I love my set of driver, 3, 5 and 7 woods and was just wondering. Thoughts?
