Really wanting another high toe #9 style putter, but dang it the Toulon San Fran looks so dang good. Luckily it's just pre-orders being taken right now, but hard not to ponder that stuff!

I got to review the SF Tec for the homepage, was a fun one. Solid stick. Terrible sound.

That is a damn good driver line from them dude, for me, it put PING back on the map with drivers. All three heads did their job crazy well, if that sound was better, they'd have been practically ideal.

Apex 3h and MD3 58 or 60, maybe PM grind ... Two slots need filled in my bag

I've got a fever and the only prescription is more Callaway.

The biggest thing to me about the G30 line is that it is substantially better with the Tour shaft than the stock counter balanced shaft.

The tour 65 with the SF tec head was money for me. The sound didn't bother me at all.

See, I was 100 percent the opposite. Imo too many bailed on the standard shaft too quickly.

A wise person I know once said we all swing differently :)

When I tried both at a demo day, the fitter gave me the tour first based on what I play now in terms of weight. I actually preferred the standard shaft by a large margin.

100% agree on the sound. It's especially bad up here hitting in the winter when a guy in the covered bay next to you is hitting driver after driver and has one in the bag.

Wait until you hit my Knuth :D That SF Tec is still probably the most consistent driver I've ever tried. I didn't mind the sound at all, and I adored that stock shaft in both that head as well as my 3w. Practically swings itself.

NI-MB. It's hard not to ponder them. Crazy intriguing concept to me.

I feel like I need to be pondering something ... so I'm looking at Scotty's. Lots that interests me, but not sure the wallet will open that wide. Very intrigued by a couple of those custom putter necks ... maybe I can send out one of my current putters (perhaps my #7) for a retrofit.

Spent over an hour at the putting green today trying out different powders inside the PGA superstore. Well just about everything out there. It's going to be really hard to beat the Cure CX1. So many other good options out there but staying with the CX one. Ken Giannini putters were also solid that was probably my second choice.

But realized I liked the shorter putters. So looks like I'm cutting down mine to 33.5 inches maybe 34 inches. Debating what grip. SS pistol is leading the race.
