Surprisingly, a Honma TW-Forged #3 driving iron (secondhand), then a Graphite Design Tour AD GT 6X for an old V-steel 4w I had.



Edit: I say surprisingly, because I was pretty happy with my Honma TW-U #3 utility, but the price on the newer model was too good to pass up. Better feel too.

Also, this came on Jan 2nd, though I ordered and paid for it online before the end of last year:


Edited by No Catchy Nickname, 05 January 2018 - 10:25 AM.

Driver: Ping G400 Tour 65S
4w: TaylorMade R9 stock Fujikura Motore X flex
7w  TaylorMade V-steel, Quadra Fire Express RB 6SX
Driving Iron: Tourstage Airmuscle with DGS200 (for occasional use only)
Irons (4i-PW): Mizuno MP18 PX6.0 @ + 1/2"  or something a bit older....MP-4s, Mac Muirfield 20ths, Mac Muirfields, Mizuno MS-11s, MS-1s, RAM Tour Grinds, Tourstage 2005 CBs, Honma PP737s, Mac R-58s, Dunlop Maxfli TM-92 Australian Blades, Wilson FG-J8s (FG-17s)...uh, I've missed a few
Wedges: Callaway MD2 50* S and 54* S-grind  or whatever else I fancy for the day
In the 60* slot: Titlesit Vokey 260 60* OR MD2 T-Grind 58* bent to 60* OR Cally X-Jaws 58* bent to 60* with a special NCN grind. Or a Ping EYE2 BeCu L wedge.
Putter: Usually a Taylormade TPA XVIII

Just bought the 54* Mizuno S18 wedge to match the 60* I got for Christmas.  I’m not a huge fan of changing wedge brands, but these are miles better than the Callaway’s they’re replacing.

Driver:     Ping G400 Max 10.5*
Fairway:  Callaway Rogue 15*, 20* & 24*
Irons:       TaylorMade M CGB 6-SW
Wedges:  Callaway PM Grind 59* & 64*
Putter:      Ping Sigma G Ketsch B

I might regrip this winter, but so far I've got enough freebies for Christmas (balls, new driver shaft).  Also apparently won a Cleveland (TFI 2135) putter in one of the WRX giveaway threads.

I probably won't have to buy anything, outside of membership dues and perhaps some Trackman time with the new driver shaft (Aldila Tour Green 70X, playing at 44").

Maybe a fairway wood. Either a Titleist or a Cobra F7 to line up more with my driver and hybrid. Other than that I am 100% happy with my bag, which is unusual. Definitely going to regrip everything in the bag though.

Found a decent price on a couple dozen yellow AVX balls, looking for them to arrive soon.

After years of saying I'd never found anything that works better than a ProV1x for my game I'll be darned if I didn't try a sleeve of the AVX and get hooked like a trout! Leave it to me to start Jonesing for the only ball out there more expensive than a ProV...
Everything has its drawbacks, as the man said when his mother-in-law died, and they came down upon him for the funeral expenses.

New years night I ordered some shafts - FST 90 to replace my stock T-step 90's on my R7's. These cheap ($9) performing shaft are similar to TaylorMade ones. In fact, FST supplies TM with shaft the last couple years.

Also ordered on the same night, XE1 65* wedge... I was just curious when I saw the C3i commercial... For far less cheaper, the XE1 would be fun to sample with before It goes on Ebay.....or sell it to a friend. But you never know, if this works, it'll stay in the bag.....
