    I wheel and deal all the time, so I never pay retail. I am interested though. Do you have any particulars that you like?

    What do you play now? What are your preferences? Shovels? Player's cavity? Blades? Combo set? Hybrids?

    Thin top lines are my thing. I rotate between my Cobra Forged Tour set and my 716 T-MBs. I've also got a set of 0311Ts that I never play, and a set of 718 TMBs that I need to get rid of as there is no difference between them and the 716s.

    I have A hybrid that Ive had in my bag for a few years - definitely looking to replace it. 816h2 (the small head)

    Definitely tough to find something comparable in the component world nowadays. I like a thin topline, too, and low offset. Love my Wishon 550's, but I'm losing confidence in them. Probably just need the lofts/lies tweaked. Gotta find a fitter that I trust to bend them.

    I loved components for almost 20 years, but tired of building (trial, rebuild, trial process) even though I have all the equipment.

    I do build for others and spend my extra time practicing.

    I use my Geek DCT driver more than my Z545 because I hit it better and I've tried newer irons but nothing I like more than my DBM's.

    I carried a set of King Snake irons for a few years and really liked them.
    I tested them against a friends King Cobra's at the time and could not tell the difference at all.
