Okay so here is my first what's in the bag that I have posted here.  I have been playing golf for a long time now, over 25 years.  I do try just about every club out there it seems and I am always tinkering with something new.

This setup is a result of me going to Ping for a fitting.  Such a cool experience.  Anyway here is the way it sits today.

Driver-NONE, had a g30 but sold it.
3wood-Ping g30 14.5 degree. Speeder Tour Spec 7.2x.
Hybrid-Ping g30 18.5 degree.  Aldila atx green 85x.
Irons-Ping s55 3-PW.  Aerotech steelfiber i110x shafts, +1/4".
Wedges-Ping Gorge 50ss 54ws 58ws.  Aerotech steelfiber i110x shafts, +1/4".
Putter-Bettinardi Kuchar arm lock model 1.  44.75"

I just recently messed around with these aerotech shafts and I really liked them.  I have previously played x100, project X 6.0, kbs ctaper s+ and x.  I came to aerotech from x100 and they were a big upgrade for me.  They give me distance but it's easy.  I felt like I was working and had to have perfect strikes with the x100 (although they were in 712mb).  I was very surprised at how well I liked the SF in the wedges, easy consistent distance gaps on full shots.  My proximity to the hole has really improved with these.  I came from 52 58 in vokey and with the pings we went 50 54 58 and I am very pleased.  I have played 52 58 for the previous 5 years or so but the extra wedge is defiantly worth it.  

Thanks for checking out my WITB!

Also,  I have the 915 line coming in for me to play around with in a d2, d3, f in 15, and f in 16.5.  I have the Rogue 60x and diamana 70x for the drivers and the Rogue 80x and diamana 80x for the fairways coming in them.  It will be fun to test these out...

What didn't work with the driver?
Well I am very particular...  it worked very well for the club that it is.  It is very forgiving and straight.  It was actually very consistent.  The problem I had with it was my swing.  I have been migrating towards a baby cut and that is what I got out of it.  I cam from playing the 913 d2 which had a draw bias and I like working the ball.  That g30 I had was so low spin and straight I just did not like it.  I want to move the ball more.  The shaft I had in it was a Kiyoshi black 65x and it is very low spin and a great shaft.  I still have the shaft with the g30 tip on it.  I will see if I need it or not with the 915's coming in but it will likely go on the bst.

What I will say about not having a driver for a few weeks now is that my scores have not gone up in fact I have done very well.  The g30 3 wood is very good off the tee and fairway.  I have hit on in two the longest par five at my home course with two 3w shots.  I usually have a hard time going driver 3w.  Also I played the other day and had an eagle at my home course on a par 5 that I have never eagled before. (Now I Have eagled 3 out of the 4 par 5's there).  The ground is firming up and I went 3w, 8 iron, 13 footer.  That is amazing because I normally have driver 5 iron or there abouts...

Anyways point being the 3w off the tee for 18 holes actually is great for ones golf game.  I am really like the g30 3 wood and I had planned on putting it on the bst but now I will have to test it against the 915's as well.

Of course Ping makes the best hybrid imo and won't be taking that out of the bag for a long while....

Thanks! Actually the i110x don't feel too stiff at all for me.  They feel great, and feel much better than steel on mishits.  I injured my neck and back a couple years ago and I was noticing that steel shafts were getting to hard on my joints and back and my injuries would flare up.  With the SF 110x, they feel great and I get low spin with them.  I feel like I can play golf and practice multiple days in a row with them and feel great afterwards and not be tired.  With x100 specifically and steel x stiff shafts I was tired and really felt some pain after a round.

I know Sneads and Kuchar play the i95 in stiff so alot of people say they play stiff but that's not true.  These i110x are great.

Also forgot to mention these custom Pure Grips I was able to get just for me with "DEUCE" inscribed on them and the stars put on there.  Pretty cool... I put one on the wedge works 54k...

Some items I toyed around with recently....714 ap2 6 iron.  Liked it, but not as much as the s55.  s55 felt easier to hit for me than ap2.  The i25 is a 3 iron that I built up over length and put in the aldila atx 85x green shaft.  i25 is so easy to hit.  Really good from tee and turf.  Cool club....

Nice setup!

How long did it take you to get used to the armlock putter? Do you love it? Do you see yourself going back to a traditional style or are you sold on the armlock?

Nice setup!

How long did it take you to get used to the armlock putter? Do you love it? Do you see yourself going back to a traditional style or are you sold on the armlock?

I liked the arm lock from the start.  Took a day to get it down.  I hit many more of those clutch putts with it and don't see going back to a traditional putter.  I wish there were more options though, the Betti is king of armlocks....

So here is what my thoughts are on the 915s...

Drivers, 915 d2 and d3 both 8.5 degrees.  Let me just start by saying I have played the 907d1, 910d3, and the 913d2,  so I have flip flopped between head type quite a bit.  Well I have done it again....I really enjoyed the d3 over the d2 in the 915.  Where I really liked the 913 d2 over the d3....they both went about the same yardage.  the 915 d3 just allows me to hit the shot I want to hit.  Straight, high, low, draw, fade.  Where the d2 really wants to hit the same type of shot all the time. For me it was a big draw. It was a big "chore" to hit a fade with the d2. Some may love that, I prefer all types of shots so d3 for me.  I lose a little consistency with the d3, a sacrifice I am willing to accept.

Driver shafts.  Rogue silver 60x 110msi and the diamana white 70x.  Both tipped 1".  Both great shafts but preferred the Rogue silver 60x over the diamana white.  Diamana was more stout and flat.  Because I like working the ball the Rogue was better because it moved the ball more.  

915F 15 and 16.5.  Very similar size.  You can see more of the face of the 16.5 and it looks square at address.  15 face looks a tad closed.  Very good distance from the tee and the turf. Pretty much same performance just pick the loft that works with the shaft.  I had the diamana white 80x in the 16.5 and the Rogue black 80x 95msi in the 15, both tipped 1.5".  Both were very similar in distance set up that way.  Diamana was lower spin so they pretty much push.  I felt like the 16.5 went left a little more than my 15 with the Rogue so I went with the 15 degree 915f with the Rogue black 80x 95msi.

It is higher pitched than the d2 was.  I guess I can live with the sound with the great looks and performance that comes with the d3... : )
