    How about a thread for equipment discussion on stuff that really doesn't deserve it's own thread? I was in Golf Galaxy today getting a grip put on my 3W and saw a used set of Titleist 714 MBs. Decided to swing them while the tech was installing my grip. These things are butter. Nothing says playa like a set of MBs in a bag either.

    The Titleist cd/mb are some of my favorites ever. Can't hit them but they sure are pretty!

    My second ace was a 690.mb 8-iron. Had two sets. Loved them. Probably would not have the game for them now. Some will argue that Mizuno blades are the sexiest. If they are, Titleist blades are a close second. Personally, I would take the side that Titleist blades are the prettiest out there.

    First, 1994. Second, 2004. Evidently, the Golf Gods weren't smiling in 2014. So, I'll need to wait until 2024 for my third. I'll only be 77 during the 2014 golf season. :D

    I guess you know, aces are pure dumb luck......

    Since Vin Skully has more aces than Freddie Couples I'll have to agree with you.

    papaD- You can have someone else regrip your clubs if you do not use Dildo grips.

    I picked up one of these at an estate sale for two bucks. (pics are not of actual putter)

    Gamed it last Friday in a scramble. It felt great! It's light, which I like, and it always seemed to put the ball on the right line. It's got an old nasty graphite shaft that I want to swap out and I think I'll use it more often than not.

    Is that a Tommy Armour? I have one too. Got it at PIAS for $5. Mine has a steel shaft and it feels awesome at impact. Thinking about putting a decent grip on it and giving it a whirl.

    Here is a random question:

    I have a complete R11 driver with a stiff shaft. I have been looking to change the head. Which heads can fit with that adapter? Someone told R11s and R15 may fit. Another told that any head will fit?

    According to this link, your R11 shaft adapter is compatible with the R9 and the R11S. Looks like there are different adapters for other models.

    Playing at Forest Greens tomorrow - two 4-somes. I'm going old school. Subsonic reminded me that I have a NIB set of Wilson Blue Ridge forgings (3,5,7,9). They're going in my Titleist carry bag along with the Hogan Apex forged SW, PING B60 isopur putter. Top half is "modern" (ish) with the TM Superfast, Cobra Baffler 5w and 5h. Nine clubs - Stand by - could be awesome, could be forgetful......................
