    Awesome! Much like @hambone1023, I've been patiently waiting for more details. This just made my week a whole lot better.

    I have tested the PTX irons through Ben Hogan's demo program recently. Liked them a lot. Wanted to try the Ft. Worth's but they are out of stock in the recoils for now. I have been doing my homework as we discussed. Myself and @justincredible are awaiting more details on the event. Flight arrangements are in process as we speak as we both heard from Danny. Shaft wise, I am really digging the gunmetal Lin-Q. Great tech in that shaft. Top 6 finish at WGC this past weekend as well so it's gaining traction on tour.

    Yep, I am aware it's a woods shaft. UST has a lot of great products out right now. We are not sure what we are going to be blessed with when we get out there so checking them all out. Danny asking for everything in our bag has me intrigued on what he has in store for us. Irons wise, the recoil 780's SW are on my list. I think they would be a good fit for me but we will see what Danny has to say about that. Also, when we get the email with all the details, we can really focus on the options that we are going to have.

    How did the PTx compare with the Mizunos, particularly in terms of size?

    hey buddy..Size wise, PTX may have been a touch smaller but nothing crazy or off-putting. Feel wise, the Mizuno's felt a bit more forgiving although when you hit a good one with the PTX they were butter. I liked the recoils in them as well compared to my TT XP 115's. The two week demo program BH has is great. Wish I had some more time with them(and better weather).

    Like @hambone1023 I have been reading up on the different shafts UST offers. I've got a few shafts in mind that intrigue me, but like hambone mentioned we really aren't sure what clubs we're actually going to be fit for. Given the Ben Hogan connection I think we're both assuming new irons, so I'm also considering putting in an order for demo clubs as soon as the weather breaks for the better. I don't think the Ft Worth's would fit my game, so I'd likely pass on a demo even they they are absolutely gorgeous clubs. I'm hopeful I can hit the PTx's (another beautiful set), and sure I can hit the Edge's, so they would be my choices to demo.

    All that said, I'm counting down the days.
