I would be interested in reading your EX10 Beta fairway review/observations....

Alright, my TEE Beta 4W showed up later, but I finally played it today and in a word, WOW. I looks good, the build quality is fantastic and combined with the ATMOS Black 7S it is ridiculous. I'm playing again tomorrow and will get more range time with it next week, but I'm very, very happy to have it in my bag. Definitely worth a look if you're in the market for a FW!

Thank you!  I finally hit one last night, and wow!  It was the wrong shaft, but I was amazed by the forgiveness and launch off of mats.

More changes coming. Going with the HZRDUS Black from driver to hybrid and my experiment with the F7+ didn't last long. At this rate I may as well start piecing together a PXG set! :)

A couple changes. Epic 2H is replacing the G400 3W and MP-18s (4 MMC Fli Hi, 5 MMC and 6-PW SC) are replacing the Z565s!

Nope, I got to this point by a bunch of trial and error. As far as the MP-18s go, I looked over all the lofts and built my set based on that. I'm a huge fan of the Modus3 shafts so I already knew I was going with those.

I was a bit skeptical about the CLK myself, but since I was having a hard time finding a FW I liked so I decided to check it out. I think it's easily one of the best looking and sounding hybrids I've gamed and I'm getting the distance I expect from it. It's pretty dang forgiving as well. Definitely worth checking out if you can find one!

Thanks. I play the large grips on all my woods but have the stock grips on all my irons and wedges. Might have to make an adjustment this spring...

Yeah it was one of their limited release 'sneaker' putter covers. The Edel emblem faded on the leather patch, but it's still my favorite putter cover!

Speaking of Edel, how do you feel about the wedges? I only know one guy personally that has them and he didn't end up being a big fan.

It's from Patrick Gibbon's Handmade! He makes fantastic stuff. And thanks! It's been quite a journey getting my bag to this point. Now it's time to get this index to drop :).

I like them, but they've certainly taken some getting used to. I've always been partial to muscle back wedges and after using these for most of 2017 everything else seems exceedingly bulky. And I'm liking them even more since I had the Modus 3 Wedge 115 shafts installed!
