as accomplished of a player as you are, i'm curious about your decision to have a 6i as your longest iron. what do you hit for punch shots if you have to go under some trees? can you flight your 6i down that much, or can you flight your hybos down? and i know you post a lot about playing in the wind, so also curious about punch shots.
he's just copying my setup. Has been for years:alien:

I have to, you live too far away for me to keep the 3i in the bag, its too hard to get my motivational talks to hit it.

Seriously though, dropping the 5i is something I've wanted to do for some time now. Thank you xr 6hy.

I can flight anything in the bag down, it's one of those things I've never understood people having issues with honestly, and it's a necessity here. Play it back, abbreviate the finish, voila.

Just as easy to punch out a 6 as a 4 or 5.
It's also wildly easier to fade or draw a hybrid (in my opinion). I don't care if I've got 150 or 230 to the green when behind a tree, I'm thinking about using my hybo to get creative just about every time now.

What's a draw?

I bought some Wilson m3 heads and am going to be shafting them myself once I find some shafts. I want to get some colored ferrules and was wondering if anyone had ordered from Grail golf on ebay?

Can't believe that weight was that big. I don't feel so bad about struggling now!
Looks like a 8 gram weight. What's really fun is trying to get the proper swing weight with new shafts. Damn light heads lol

Well, if you've ever watched this guy:



Then you would know that a draw is one of these:

I want you to know, having grown up watching that show on PBS thanks to my grandparents, this cracked me the heck up.

Well done sir! Hahaha

Sweet sweet victory.

And that is why I just used lead tape when I reshafted my irons. FWIW, I've got a full swingweight kit if anyone is looking for one. :D

Finally re-gripped my own clubs!!! I did 13 last night (no putter) and it was easy-peasy!!! I needed to get back to oversize grips, so I removed the midsize I had on there and replaced with new midsize and added four grips of tape. I bought the i-Line off Lamkin.com for $29.99 to make my first attempt inexpensive in-case I messed-up.
