ORIGINAL POST __Summer/2018:
IYQP9461.jpeg
Finally had some time to make a GolfWRX account...First post, might as well be my WITB!

Driver - G400 MAX with PX hzrdus black 75 6.5. The hzrdus shaft in black was recommended to me when i was ordering my f8 as it was an option from the seller, loved it, converted all woods to it.

3 W - f8+.  maybe my go to. Read about the smaller head, But the face is pretty much exactly the same size the 5-6 wood f8.  The head being smaller actually make me feel more confident off deck.

5 W - f8.

4-PW- TM p770. will try 919's soon but these do it for me.

GW- Use a p770 51 degree, go-to for greenside/running chips. dunno the bounce, but looks mid. im guessing 8 degrees or so.

SW/LW-going to bend to 59 or 60 i think. just added a 54 as well.

Putter - 2 ball fang. going with a smaller grip soon.

I sub in a 790 2 iron for the 5 wood when i want a low flight in windy stuff.

Sometimes I sub in the TM hi toe 64 when i have to deal with a lot of wet sand. or tooling round with someone who hits it shorter or on a short course, ill drop my driver for it.

Thats that, let me know thoughts! Play well!

NOTES-
2 ball putter is 2 heavy without a stiffer shaft i think. Jailbird mini is great MOI for its size

3 iron suits my gap in distance much better, 2 iron was redundant to my 5 wood and rarely got played.  

62*5 hi-toe with sneaky heel grind is greatly more useful to me that 64*atv.  It has been in my bag since i did the grind, even tough been wanting to play the 3 iron more. 62 might be a permanent fixture on nice dry fast days.

Sad to part with rtx3 raws, awesome wedges.

yea, when i first started, i read about a few pros going 52-58 or 52-60, and i deluded myself into thinking i could play it. :fie:

Took a couple years and a ton of #$%@ing practice before my short game was not a liability lol.

Since, ive found that the only time i miss degrees 53-57 is 110-90 yard shots with tight pins (choking down on GW is tough here because if not perfectly spun ball roll-out kills me, and a full 58 swing can spin back off the green on me) and non-greenside bunkers (again, ball roll with the 51 is a bit much when not spinning).  

I open the 51 face up a lot on stuff like that.

Will wait to get my 58 hi toe before doing any bending, but will take my 51 to 52 and/or my hi-toe to 57, depending on the distances.

I could never fully commit to leaving a club out of the top end of bag, change my mind every round.  Im hoping the 58*10 works perfect and i can go to 52-58-62, but still unsure where that will leave my at the top end. . . i love me some  2iron/3iron

I ran into the same problem with the 790 UDI, same length as my 5 wood so it was redundant. Did the same and shaved up an original 3 UDI for better gapping.

Your hitting the 790 3 iron? I wanted that one, I was hitting my buddies and tried to sneak it from him many times, no luck. it pretty much became part of my bag, and he finally caught on that i was essentially playing with 15 clubs and is making me buy my own.

found a nice 3 iron in classifieds. gotta regrip it then ill post pics.

New additions /pics

New putter:
Money ball, finally found my forever putter lol.
35 or so of toe hang, mid mallet weight, Scotty milled face, put a gtr pistol grip and voila...best putter of my life.



New wedges:

Love my new high toe 58 and the grind on my 62. Perfect combo for me, and the wedges are very,very nice.


New drive iron: (and I'm new to driving irons period)

Tm tour preferred Udi 3 iron with Nippon modus3 105x. So much fun, may be my go to club if my 5 wood was not firmly seated there. I want to try a hazrdus black shaft in it cause I'm a fanboy, but may opt to get a different driving iron with that shaft if I find it.

I think that's it for now! Putter, wedges, woods, and driver will prob make it a couple seasons, very solid right now.

May upgrade p730's/ 919/ comparable blades once I wear out current grips on p770's. Hitting them feels them feels awesome so no rush, but I think I could trade in their forgiveness for blade accuracy without too much issue.

Bag as is:
