    So is Minneapolis. I don't really care, I just thought it was funny and a bit of a waste. As long as they get here on time and unscathed, they could fly 'em to Australia and back for all I care.

    No one in their right mind wants to go to the west coast. They will buzz around in God's Country... the Midwest... as long as possible. About the only thing "West Coast" that is interesting is...

    Strange, they usually ship faster than that. I would have assumed Monday also.

    My experience is different...

    Poor packaging:

    As for the condition, they ranked them a 9.0 which is true for the 5 iron, maybe the 4 and 6, but they get progressively more scuffed as you go down and by the time you get to the wedge it looks like this:

    The grips will need to be replaced soon, as well.

    Overall I am okay with the condition but I was expecting better. I was certainly expecting them to pack them better.

    Once my bag gets here I'm off to the range!

    Played my first round with the AP3s on Monday at Woodlands in central Oregon. I was getting 175+ out of my 8 iron o_O

    That course is at like 4,100' elevation so that helped a bit, but as of now I still don't know what my new yardages are.

    Similar problem to what I experienced with the new Prophet Muscle irons I just built on Ozik Program graphite. I definitely gained club and a half at least. Now... The 7 iron is really a 6 iron, if we're being honest... lol
