I have been meaning to do a WITB for quite a while.  I even took pictures a few times.  However, it seems that my bag is always changing.  I have slowed down the Ho-Go-Round quite a bit towards the end of last season.  I think I am pretty set with what I have at this point, and I hope that I stick to a bag this year.  That being said, the Nike hybrid is in jeopardy.  I may switch to MD2 wedges for my 50* and 54*. (I prefer the rounder leading edge.)  A set of custom Best Grips is definitely in the cards for this season.  Classic black with Lime stitching and some sort of engraving for everything except the wedges.  The wedges will get the gridiron treatment.

Taylormade SLDR 430 with 2 weight modification.  2x 6g weights with toe screw.  12* head cranked down/open to 10.5* - I'm still monkeying around with the weight configuration.  Stock shaft currently.  I have a few shafts to try out this spring.  The Kusala White will probably win out. :) I haven't been on a machine since I made the alteration. TBH I haven't noticed a big difference in forgiveness or spin. However, I have been working out some serious issues with my driver.

Taylormade VSteel 18* 5 wood.  RIP alpha 80g.

Nike VR Pro II - 21* - Project X 6.0

Adams Pro Gold 23* - Stock Matrix Ozik Altus - Stiff

Titleist 714 AP2 5-PW - 1* up - KBS Tour R+

Callaway X Series JAWS - MD grooves - 52/12 bent to 50/10 - 54/14 - Spinner shafts

Callaway MD2 - 58/10 U grind - Spinner shaft

Slighter Proto 1 - #9/Del Mar design - High Toe - Long neck - Deep Milled face - 33", 370gr, lie 71*, loft 4* - My son’s initials and birth date.  I’m going to have to get this re-stamped with my daughter’s initials and birth date (coming in the next week or so).

I am currently using a Titleist Sta-Dry bag.  I use it through April.  Then I plan on switching back to my GolfWRX white.  I love that thing. Fore Leaf did the custom club covers. I have one for a hybrid as well, but it's a little loose and tends to fall off. :(

That is one long neck on that putter. What's the balance like? Massive toe-hang or more neutral?

The first pic of the putter shows the toe hang.  I don't know if I adapted my swing to the putter, or if it just fits my swing (That's a lie... I adapted).

Ok.  I added some Edel Wedges in the DVR grind.  That's 50/16*, 54/18*, 58/22*.  The massive bounce is awesome.  My short game has grown substantially so far this season.  These wedges have made me even more accurate.  I'm still gauging distances on my 1/2 - full shots.  However, chipping is money.  I stripped the black paintfill and put in lime green.  I'm going to add blue for the numbers.  I can't emphasis enough how great having this bounce is.  :)

Very solid set, especially fond of the v-steel and the putter. The entire set shows thought for what works best for you, not blind loyalty to a single manufacturer. Hope you enjoy the clubs, time on the course, and play well!

Thanks man.  My index has dropped from a 22.5 last year at this time to a 17.5 this year.  I'm finding more fairways.  But I really attribute it to the time I've put in on the wedges and putting.  I'm rolling in WAY more 10 footers than I used to and I'm chipping to within 10' way more often.  Now I just need to hit more FIRs and GIRs.....

Thanks.  Unfortunately, this is the bag of a lot of ho'ing and experimenting.  The good news is that I have dialed in what I really want.  What suits my eye, and what suits my game.  It doesn't mean I don't trick anymore.  It just means that I'm more specific when I do.  :)

TBH.  I'm always looking for more distance and accuracy with my woods and hybrids.  I'm not a long hitter.  The Adams has been good to me.  I bounced between the Proto Gold and a a12Pro.  The A12Pro suited my eye, but the Proto gold was more forgiving.  Since I took those pics I have switched both the Nike VRs Pro II and the Adams Proto Gold.  I replaced the Proto Gold with a VR-S hybrid.  It looks more like a fairway, but it gives me a high-straight ball flight and good distance.  It's also forgiving.  I can't dig 'em out of the rough like I used to with the Proto Gold, but I haven't found that I miss that part all that much.  I dropped the VRs Pro II 21* as well.  Right now I don't carry anything between the VSteel and the VR-S hybrid.  I have a 21* VR-S hybrid that I'm thinking about putting in, or I have a VSteel 7w....  I dunno.  It's a work in progress.
