    On Thin Ice - Your 2019 Bag Setup

    What in your current bag is on "Thin Ice" for your 2019 setup? Why and what are you hoping to accomplish with something else?

    As always everything should be scared, but the thinnest ice is probably my 3W and my irons. 3W I don't know that I should even be carrying a 3W, a 4 or 5w would probably be better and irons I just want to try out the new stuff.

    Presently, wedges.

    I'm going to behave for now, but if I were to make a change, the first thing would be wedges.

    Irons. I love them but the CF19s must be tried. Wedges too. Really pondering PM grind.

    Driver for sure. I would say that is and has always been the weakest (least consistent) club in the bag. I know the current setup I have is not ideal, due to various reasons, and I am looking for something that will bring me more consistency and accuracy.

    I've heard this for three years now.

    But, to be fair, you DID replace them...until the finish peeled off LOL

    My Alpha 816 4 wood is on thin ice. Waiting to hear about the new Ping G410 fairways on Monday, hopefully the new G410 3 wood will be the one. Has to be good off the deck and tee.

    New Callaway PM19 58* lob wedge is my second ponder when that comes out. Guys keep talking about how easy it is on the knockdown shot which I love to hit.

    Might also grab a Ping G400 4 hybrid to battle my CF16 4 iron. Need more height sometimes on that long approach.

    Driver will be replaced likely by the F9. I got a bit more ballspeed from the F9. Can keep my Helium shaft in it.
    Fairways are safe.
    Hybrids are safe.
    Irons have already been replaced because I felt like trying something completely new that I've lusted over.
    Wedges are safe for now.
    Putter is likely safe (we'll see if stroke lab beats it out though)

    Oddly enough, this might be the first time since I joined THP that I can say that nothing is on thin ice right now. Weird.

    Looking at you 7 wood. Looking into a driving iron to replace so I have an option off the tee for lower trajectory.

    My bag is being flipped too to bottom. Why? Bc I like shiny and new, the new stuff so far provides the benefits I need for my game and I get to support an OEM that has is near and dear to me.
