Ok, seeing as I'm moving to steelfibers in the irons I decided - after getting a money price - to drop in some 125 stiffs in my Wrx grind 53 and 59 Glides

I wanted higher bounce wedges to bring to Florida for the winter to handle the pernicious Bermuda grasses and these will do the trick with my tour W 64.  Threw some blue and orange colours on there w the grips and ferrules

Well today i decided more thinning of the heard was necessary and managed to unload some Adams wedges for a Circle T ball hat.  

I also traded in my M4 driver and one of my 3 Craz-E putters (I keep going back to the '16 m2) for a 10* G400 LST.     I can't resist a good deal

Didn't love the max but the twin has the same head and I loved it last Spring.   Think it will be good ... plus I have 4 great shafts with Ping adapters to play around with it ... Purple Oban 55x, Aldila NL 60x, Addi 6x black and a tipped Xtorsion copper 60s.

Interested to hear how G400 LST works out.  I hit one in the other day and was impressed.  I also hit the G400 Max but did not care for it either.

The G400 LST just kicked the crap out of my '16 M2 at GolfZon.    (Had an hour before our 8-some played Kiawah Ocean)

Straighter, longer, faster ... like Steve Austin.

The purple Oban Kiyoshi 55x is a wicked shaft in this head.  I had the head set at +0.6* fwiw.  46.25" .. d7 swingweight

It's weird that this head works so well for me and the Max doesn't

Anyways, next project is tossing a Ping adapter on the Kiyoshi gold I have for the 3w and a Callaway adapter on the Kiyoshi White that is also resting in the man cave ..  for my GBB 5w

Also of note:  the G400 three wood is stupid good.  Twice I got home today from 265 ... I know it's a sim but this is 3 winters in a row and I know how the yardages work.   The good news is the 3w was also money in October before the weather turned.

Late to the party on both heads I know

based on what I am reading on the Oban website it seems a Kiyoshi black 65x might be the ticket in the 3w due to similar profiles

any Oban graphite experts out there?

What shafts in 65x (3w) and 75x (5w) would partner well with the purple 55x in driver.   A few years back I loved the 65x purple in a 7w but made a trade I regret

The gold and whites I have are both 65 .. 04 flex .. I thought the white was 75 ! Curses

If you like the Purple 55x in the driver, the best bet is to stay with the Purple in a 65x in the 3 wood.  The White doesn’t kick as much as the Purple and the White feels a little more stout.  

I think you mentioned the Black earlier.  For me the Black felt a little dead compared to the White.  But, for me the Black tended to be more “straight” or accurate in the fairway.  I just preferred the feel of the White and Purple more.

Will be picking up a Cally UT 30*.    ((Thanks to some member here who's WITB caught my attention w UT's and a Miura 7-W set up.))  I AM SO WEAK !!!!!!!!!!!!

Anyways, grabbed an Apex Pro CF16 7i with a steelfiber 110s last night (2 flat).    Deal was so good I couldn't ignore it on CPO

These two clubs will be very nice with my 8, 9 and PW x-proto blades in a back up set ...  could be all Callaway from 3w right thru to GW!  Just need a 56* and 62* and a driver.
