    Well, here's what I'm starting out with this year. I have two drivers in there right now, so don't have to remind me.........LOL. Might take out the Nickent and put the Ping Eye2 2-iron back in.:confused:

    I dont see any need for two drivers unless your a touring pro. Even then VERY RARELY. Can you explain?

    So hit one lower/draw and hit one higher/fade, or diff shaft options which help different flights.

    He's not a touring pro or playing tourneys, so why not have something in the bag that can help him out?

    Nice sticks sssmokin. I was debating not opening the thread with you posting an attachment... Is the G5i that much bigger than the g2 craz-e? The headcover seems huge...

    There's no need to explain anything. I just haven't decided on which of those two drivers (or 2 others I have) I will be using.
    A friend from work that I play golf with has the G2 Craz-E putter, and they're the exact same size......just cosmetic changes here and there. My headcover is the "magnetic" kind.............don't know what the G2 has. He doesn't use a headcover on his.:)

    Lots of bumblebee colors in that bag! Those Nike woods work well. Easier to hit a 2 iron than a hybrid?? Thought you were doing well with the Nickent?

    The G2 and G5 putters are the same size. not sure what the difference is between the models other than price.

    Just remembered......YOU have a Craz-E putter too...........that's three of us that I know that use them. I hit the Cobra Baffler hybrid so much better than the Nickent in Kentucky, that it made me wonder. I've always hit that Eye2 2-iron well................haven't been as consistent with the Nickent. Just thinking out loud mostly.........LOL. :)

    I made the same switch from Nickent to Baffler. I could hit the Nickent long - but the Baffler was just so easy to hit that I switched.

    Holy Cow............that makes FOUR of us. I'm going to have to look closer at everyone's signature from now on.

    That's what I'm going to do.............hey, I have something new to ho' now. Getting another baffler to replace the Nickent. I originally got the Nickent due to Warbirdlover's suggestion that "it's the best hybrid out there". Wrong.

    Split the difference and go with the i5. It is the perfect "tweener"; almost as forgiving as the G series and almost as workable as the S series. If you insist on the power of 10 though then you're in a pickle as, from all accounts, the i10 plays more like the S58/9 than the i5 and the G10 is just a slightly more forgiving version of what you have in the bag.

    I'm also a little confused trying to put your posts in different threads in order... :confused:
