Those look like some aggresive cord grips! Looks like they go for $20+ each...

Those grips look nasty.  But for $20 each I'd  rather just replace my Lamkins 3 times a year, lol.

Odyssey is selling them off their site. It will set you back $79 plus shipping. These usually sell out pretty quick. I think the full size mallet is sold out. But the half mallet (Rossie) and blade models were still in stock as of yesterday.
Eventually they'll end up on Ebay.

They need to go back to this insert... it was by far their best.  Strick, Phil, and a lot of other Pros still use this insert.

Pretty nice straightforward set-up. Looks like he's playing the X-forged in the longer irons. Where does he transition to the MBs? 8i?

Love the wedges.

From the images, it looks like 4-5 in X-Forged then 6-PW in MB (could be mistaken though.. not 100%.. more like 80%...lol)

Yes, I think you're right. I just enlarged the picture, and could vaguely make out "MB" on the 6i.
