    Always adding to the Hoard.

    You should hit them well. I had a blast with my set today.

    The Wilson Sam Snead set were awesome in their own way. I hit them very well and they feel like butter, even with the stock crap shafts. It's amazing how much club design has changed from a length and loft standpoint. Never mind multi-material heads with welded-on flexing faces, the Wilsons were pounded into shape from a soft hunk of carbon steel and are short and hi-lofted! The 7 iron in my set is the same shaft length as a PING G 9 iron! They are literally 2 clubs shorter in distance too. I used the 9i as a GW, the 5i as a 7i, etc. Seriously old school, and surprisingly easy to hit. I even hit the 3i on a 2nd shot on a par 5 and launched it pretty high.

    I need someone to sneak into my basement and take away every adjustable club head wrench I own!!! Simply cannot leave anything well enough alone. Was playing my XR16 at S (standard) D (draw). Playing okay with it, but thought it could be better. Unbolted the shaft from the Mini and put in the XR. Shot some really low scores with it. It CAN be better. Put the driver shaft back in set at +1, D. Didn't like that. Today, played it at -1, N. That ain't gonna work. Put the driver shaft in my Mini and the Mini shaft back in the driver. Have the "short shafted" driver set back at S, D. The Mini is set at the same... S, D. If I can come close to controlling the long shaft in the Mini, it should be fun.

    You see what I mean??? I haven't touched the adjustment on my fairways for... maybe three weeks. That's a record. The driver, however, I cannot seem to leave alone. I need one of the wrenches stuck in my ear and an adjustment made to my brain!!!!

    You have very clearly depicted the reason I do NOT use adjustable clubs.. . .

    So the head of one of my wedges flew off during my company golf outing.

    6 years I think on 5 minute epoxy I had sitting around because I was too impatient to get the good stuff. Not too bad. Came out clean so I should be able to put it back on no problem.

    Man whose head goes further than his balls has probably lost one or the other.

    The same thing happened to me with a "driver incident" on the tee one time.

    "All the other shit" you're building? The NSA has probably red flagged your communications. Expect a visit by guys in cheap government suits. Guantanamo Bay is nice this time of year.
