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.

I think you will like this off the deck. It launches nicely and the face is really hot.

You are going to LOVE them. They look amazing and feel so good. They launch lower than my C Taper Lites, which I like and I feel like the dispersion is better.

I hope they are a home run for you!
