I've been a member since 2005, but this is my first ever WITB. Nothing is safe, but I am happy with the setup so far.....

IMG_3705.jpg IMG_3706.jpg

Driver - 2016 M2 Tour Issued with Tour AD DI 6X plays 45 3/4. I'm testing the Black Mamba, but so far the DI is winning.

IMG_3707.jpg IMG_3708.jpg IMG_3709.jpg

3 wood (mini) Aeroburner TP MINI 14* Matrix White Tie 70X. Cannon off the tee. I typically need a fluffy lie to go after it off the deck.

IMG_3710.jpg IMG_3711.jpg

Epic Heavenwood 19* Aldila Rogue Max 85X. This bad boy flies really high and goes far enough. I use this off the deck 95% of time.

IMG_3712.jpg IMG_3713.jpg

Srixon 4 iron 23* with Miyazki 7s Stiff tour issue. Still getting use to this club, but the turf interaction is phenomenal. Just need more reps.

IMG_3717.jpg IMG_3718.jpg

TM 790s 5 & 6 iron bent 2 degrees weak. KBS $ Taper 130 X SS. Very impressed so far with the forgiveness in these.

IMG_3719.jpg IMG_3720.jpg

TM 750s 7-PW bent 1 degree strong. KBS $ Taper 130 X. In love with these irons. They feel like butter and shafts are very smooth.

IMG_3721.jpg

Cleveland RTX 3 RAW - 50* 56* & 60* these have been great wedges this season. I will probably try out the TM Milled in antique finish, but they are safe for now.

IMG_3722.jpg


Lastly, Never Compromise Type 40 Sub 30.... I change putters like underwear, but this putter will not be sold. This putter excels on faster putting surfaces.

IMG_3715.jpg IMG_3714.jpg IMG_3716.jpg


I need to go get my current setup TrackMan numbers, but here was my last session at Club Champion:

Nice setup, I recently added a similar 4 iron replacement (Yonex Z01). How does the Srixon compare to comparable loft hybrids?

Hey Dog,

I haven't played a traditional hybrid in sometime, but this U65 flies about 10 yards further than my Apex 4 iron. When I have 220 to about 235 I will hit this club.

I have been kicking around the idea of adding an Epic Heavenwood for a while now. How are you liking it so far?

I really like it off the deck. I carry a strong 3 wood, so it's my go to on long par 5's. It launches really high and the head is super hot. I hit this club as far as my 15* Srixon F45.

The only negative IMO is this club goes left a bit more than I want. Probably more user error, but I have to setup for a draw with this club.

Thanks Catchy! The putter is just really solid. I purchased a super banged up TM Corza Tour yesterday for $20.00. It looks terrible haha, but rolls nice.

The Apex and Apex Pro's just flew so far. I'm a full club shorter on my P750's. The P790s seem to fly really close to my Apex, maybe a little shorter.

Think I may give it a shot and pair it with my Epic 3+, as I carry a strong 3 wood too.
