Bag is 90% set for now, I don't expect to do anymore major changes this year.

The Miuras are firmly planted, I don't plan on ever changing until I have the opportunity to make a trip to Scratch headquarters and get custom fit. Then I will have a custom set built to replace the Miuras.

Wedges: Unchanged- I was fit at TPI Carlsbad for these wedges. Anyone in SoCal in the market for new wedges, I highly recommend spending the $150 to get fit at TPI. It's one of those things that you only have to do once, if you don't change your swing. You will learn a lot about what you like and need in a wedge as far as gaps, grind and bounce. The experience alone is worth $150, never mind that you are getting fit by the same guys that fit the entire Titleist staff.

Bag: I went from Pings my entire life to the Titliest Lightweight. There really is no comparison, Ping bags are simply the best IMO. The Titleist/ SM bags are very round and the fabric is thin. I like the more oval shape of the Ping that hugs your body better and almost attaches to your back. Plus they seem to be better quality.

The entire SPX line is unreal. I have pretty much tested every shaft out and I feel the VTS SPX is cream of the crop. This is coming from a guy that has never cared for UST shafts in the past. These feel good, great numbers and the dispersion is remarkable. I also have Silver 7.... I actually think the silver feels a little better than the black but it launches just a tad higher. I am actually considering picking up a Silver 8X to see if the launch comes down and if it feels as good as the 7 silver. One of the best things about these shafts is that you can get them without breaking the bank. You should definitely try each color before you buy. Good luck!!!

Oh and the black ox looks better as it wears. I will post some pictures later of them starting to rust.

No!!!! I'm in Southren California and a USC season ticket holder. I hope we play a SEC team this year. They need to see a decent QB as there are currently none in the SEC. Headcovers are Lakers colors. Thx for looking.  :friends:

I have been playing the speeder vc 7.1X and and/or a axivcore tour green 75x.  I like the feel of the speeder but launch and spin are a little high for my liking.  I like the numbers with the axivcore but the feel is definitely lacking.  I'm told the spx black is even lower launch and spin than the axivcore (which i want) but has better feel where the axivcore lacked.

Yes that is accurate. The silver would be lower/lower than the 7.1 and higher/higher than the Tour Green. The black will be lower than both and will feel a little stiffer than the 7.1 but much smoother than the Tour Green. They are great shafts.... I was concerned that the black in my 3 wood would be too low, but it's about perfect and very easy to control.

Do you usually like a higher weight driver shaft?  Did you hit the VTS in the 6 series, if so how did they compare to the 7 series you are playing?  Also does the spin go up noticeably between the Black and Silver?

Awesome bag BTW!
