try the nickent hybrids. You can get them for sweet prices
Well, the whole bag (and everything in it) is new this year. I've found that really doesn't make a bit of difference in my new found obsession...
I've got a TM RAC satin 54* wedge that I've fallen in love with so I'm contemplating adding a couple more to round out my wedge selection.
I'm also not happy at all with the way I'm hitting my 3H and 4H (cheap-o 'gifts' - Texans) and that's got to be the clubs fault, right? I hit the A7OS and really liked it, thinking that's going to be the next purchase...

I liked the Sasquatch too until the dividers started to tear up. I hate when the clubs all grab each other when you try to get one out.

I'm aiming to get a nice cart bag at some point this season... probably as the clearance deals roll around.

I've also gotta get a 52 , 56, and 60 set of the U grooves (leaning toward the Jaws or CG14s).

Plus my OnPar broke, so I'm in the GPS market, too...

dang! I'm gonna have to start saving now if I want to be ready for next year!

Well I have a set of R9 irons that I got back in May that I'm playing with every once in a while but I'm shooting so well with my Burners its hard for me to switch. So I'm holding on to them until I need them or I hit a lull. So with that being said right now I'm set on finding a putter to switch to on a permanent basis, I played all fall and winter with my rife two bar blade but when the pushes started I went back to my itsy bitsy. The corza ghost has my eye as alignment on mid range putts seems to hurt me at times and of course the Kombi S is a great rolling putter and quite possibly the Nike Method 005 has caught my eye. Out of those 3 its gonna be hard to choose. And last but not least right now I SO want a set of cg 15's in a set of 50, 54, 58 or possibly 52, 56, 60. I can't make up my mind but I want those wedges something awful after playing around with my buddies last week.

Well as some may know I purchased the ghost putter yesterday. I took it to th practice facility and loved it. I could hardly wait to get it on the course. I am nocturnal by nature, but I made it out this morning by 8am. It performed great until I hit the 12th hole. I got that tingle in my left hand and had to switch to the simple putting. The ghost don't work that way.

I am wondering if I should get the mid weight heavy putter that was center shafted just for the above situation. I have carried 2 putters for a while now. Is 2 new putters in 2 days crazy?

haha thats pretty OEM of you! So all the sudden you felt the need to switch putting styles and now you need a new putter?

I spent a day PMing back and forth with OEM, since then I have picked up an XFT 60 wedge and a Tw9 56. I put a lot of stock in that man haha

I actually have tried them out, liked them both

Well I have been carrying two putters. One for my normal stroke and one for when I need to putt with the simple putting style. I played this morning with only the Ghost. I replaced the Odyssey with the Ghost and ditched the prostaff. I thought the Ghost would work for both styles of putting.

I guess I also never explained that I often lose most feeling in my left hand due to a neck injury. Golf will sometimes aggravate it and the simple putting takes the left hand out of the equation. It looks retarded but I found it to be almost as good as my regular stroke. Some rounds I only need to use it on a few holes some on about half of the holes.

The heavy putters weighting combined with the straight center shaft seemed to be perfect for simple putting but I didn't like it for my regular stroke. I could put the prostaff back in, but I think I have used up all the good putts in that one.

Hardly anybody. There is one store around here that does, but I refuse to go there due to some transgressions. The outing probably will though!

PGA Superstore has a lot of wilson staff gear. Really one of the only places. I don't remember if I saw them at golfsmith or not. But the SS is where I got my putter and they have everything else too.

When I worked at GG it was when they started to clear our their Wilson Staff products. They even did a contest through Wilson Staff. The top two Players Assistants with the highest number of WS sales got to go to a golf clinic by Padraig Harrington in Boston. We pushed Wilson Staff and then once they were gone we were no longer getting any more WS products back. Its a shame really, because they have a great lineup out there

On a side note: a place near me carries some Wilson stuff. They have the Fybrids and the Smooth driver, but I don't believe they have any of the iron sets.

That is one of the sexiest putters ever made! I grabbed one for the collection but Im scared to putt with it on the course. Not much forgiveness there!

Sigh, these forums will be the death of me. Currently:

1) R9 Supertri TP - SVS Voodoo - Been looking to update my driver since hitting these at a demo day and all the positive reviews here....admittingly though, the biggest reason why I'd actually want to do this is because how easy it is to just pop in a new shaft....which opens up a whole new can of worms.

2) Superfast 3 wood - The old one I have is alright, but the shaft is terrible and reshafting isn't that much cheaper than....grr...

3) Wedges - Swapped from Mizuno MP37s to R9 irons this year, and the PW/AW go significantly farther than my MP37 PW and my titleist 52. Now my AW to 56/60 gap is huge so I'm considering changing these....but then again the prospect of a 64 seems enticing too. Big flops are just so much fun to hit!

4) Odyssey 2 ball-blade black-tour - Honestly I hate the look of the 2 ball compared to a regular blade, but I do putt better with them......more of a cop-out to swap to a "better looking" version......definitely at the bottom of the list <_<
