how dare you give me advice on anything!?!?!hahaFar be it from me to give you advice, but since you asked.
My approach is to try out the different clubs, see which one is best, and if it is best by enough margin, go for it.
My current driver is a good example. It was NOT the best for me. Best for me was the Pring 410, but just by a little. The CObra was a little less consistent. BUT I found a Cobra for sale for $200 less. The Ping was not $200 better. So I play the Cobra.
Depends on how long you keep a driver? I have gotten stuff from CPO that was in like new condition that was still in the original packaging.I am wanting to buy a new driver this year and pondering buying the latest and greatest or last years model.
is it worth the extra $150-200 to get the newest to you?
We are very similar in thinking.I like to buy used drivers/woods/putter. I do seem to try out the new stuff and am itching to buy, but when I only see slight improvements I wait.
I usually buy new irons but that is done rarely (5 years+ usually between sets).
When I did a fitting recently I felt I needed 10 yards of carry to justify some spend. I couldn't get there with anything. I feel 10 yards of carry is the minimum to justify spending a substantial money for a new driver.how dare you give me advice on anything!?!?!haha
I am thinking it would need to be 10+ yards and straighter to justify the extra money.
what year M1 are you rocking? I have the 2017 with the neon green graphics.I'm posting to follow because I'm in the same boat, but I'll add my 2 cents since I also am gaming an M1. I would say, in my opinion, for us anything released in the past year will be a tech/forgiving/performance jump compared to what we're playing. So it comes down to getting in a bay and swinging the club. If it means saving $150+ but 2-3 yards of distance because its last years model, I would save the money and upgrade something else as well. Which is what I'm planning to do over the next couple of weeks.
EDIT: I'll add that for me, accuracy is more important than distance...
And there's also another Gopher game tomorrow against Penn State that should be a good one!We are very similar in thinking.
PS Boomer Sooner plays my gophers tomorrow in hoops! Go Gophers!
I am jacked for the Penn State game, just had to let my buddy Sean know the gophers will beat OU tomorrow.And there's also another Gopher game tomorrow against Penn State that should be a good one!
BTW, love the sig photo. I saw Prince more than a dozen times live at First Ave back in the '80's.
