    On the back of my recent TM Sim Max driver acquisition, I snapped up a 19 degree Sim Max hybrid. Hit it on the range a few nights ago. Not the most forgiving hybrid I have ever hit, but when hit, it is gorgeous! It has a UST shaft.

    I also just bought a shaft extractor. News to follow about a new shaft company that I have hooked up with! The dude is putting out some new amazing shafts.

    I've a bunch of stuff I need to sell soon, before the wife finds out. ;):eek::D

    I took their swing survey and came up with a different shaft then you want. Not on the front burner.

    So my shafts came in, actually went with 110s over the 95s because of the "B weight"heads. They are still a bit light, but I prefer lighter to heavy. Also, no word on the driver order yet, but I also slapped together a Taylormade ICW 1 ron with a Graphite Design Tour AD DI 7s. I love it! It's low for sure, but in the wind.. it's a cheater.

    I just bought a driver (M6) with a DI 7 in it. So far I’m pretty impressed. I didn’t think anything would knock my M2 out but this driver may be a bit more forgiving on toe hits-which tends to be my miss. I’ll say though, the M2 (2016 version) has a good feel and an incredible sound.

    My driver arrived today, so I went to pick it up. I hit a few with my TS2, and then some with the M6. EVERY BALL was on the heel with the M6. I felt like I was farther from the ball too. Turns out the M6 is 46", my TS2 is 44.5", so there's the issue. I came home pulled the adapters off of both and put my Tour Design BB6 X in the Taylormade, and will hit it tomorrow. Hope it's all I'm looking for.

    I noticed my M6 was about an 1” longer than my M2. May cut it down and give it a go. Season is almost over up here though, might just ride it out.

    They make em longer so you get more head speed (if you can control it).

    Well I still had the 2 way miss going. Not any worse than with my M2, bit not any better. I’d say distance is equal too.

    Our golf course clubhouse had one of these with a demo sticker on for $150. Normal price is $250. I was first to demo it and was what I was looking for. 16.5° loft instead of 15°. Hit the snot out of it and it's now mine.

    Also ordered this and should be here next month.

    I bought these yesterday. A set of 2-PW for under $20. I can't find much about them on the internet. No reviews really. And it's too cold for me to go out and give them a try. Anyone have any info on these? PXL_20201026_121918375.NIGHT. PXL_20201026_121853578.

    Lynx was a popular brand years ago. I think Freddie Couples played them when he joined the tour. Those must be about their first try. They were bought out by Golfsmith and then Golfsmith went under. Sounds like someone is trying to bring them back.

    Right on! The Lynx irons above were manufactured before the early "square" Parallax irons. (Freddy played the later version which had a more typical shape. Freddy made television commercials for the Lynx 'Black Cat' irons, even though he played the Parallax. Freddy also touted the 'Boom Boom' Lynx driver, but played a Callaway most of the time he was with Lynx.)

    A buddy of mine was on a sponsorship from Lynx a couple years ago.

    I'm trying to figure out when these were released and if anyone has played this particular model before. They look like irons for better players.

    I just bought a Gold SKLS swing trainer. It's a cheaper version of the Orange Whip. At age seventy I really have to work to stay flexible. This aid is supposed to help with flexibility, strength and tempo if one uses it consistently. My plan is to try to work with it everyday after my morning work-out. Does anyone else use this or the OW and if so, what are your results?

    I bought one off amazon maybe 2 years ago. I use it to stretch before every round. I like it, helps with my tempo and getting too quick from the top. This is gonna sound like an infomercial but seriously, I’ve played my best golf the last 2 seasons and I credit this with part of it. It’s not a magic cure but I feel like it helps me get and feel where the right plane is. It also forces me to pause a bit at the top and start my downswing with my lower body rather than my upper body. It’s helped me straighten out my drives for sure.
