I got some new grips in the mail today. A set of Karma Black Velvet Midsize grips, which cost 2.75€ a piece for a copy of the Lamkin Crossline.

The Multi Compounds on my EZ Forged need to be replaced as those are too small for me (it might be that for the first time I actually have .60 grips on a .60 shaft as opposed to .58 (and ribbed) grips on .60 shafts) and practicing with them gave me a couple of bad blisters.

I didn't want to put anything expensive on the EZs as I intend to use them only until early June at the longest. If these grips work and are still good a year from now, I could put them on other clubs also.

The Lamkin REL Ace 3Gen I had already put on the PW is turning out to be a disappointment. It loses its tackiness just sitting around the house over a couple of weeks. It's good after a scrub but I wonder how quickly it'll wear slippery when actually used.

Exactly right. This is the version 3. The new version 4 just came out, so it's becoming one of the longer running numbers in the Yamaha line. It sounds a bit thin unplugged, but plugged in, it can stand up to the performance of any of my high priced guitars.


Last week I watched an interesting documentary on Jim Marshall and his Marshall Amplification company.
The "Father of Loud".

You got an electric guitar? Get a 30 foot Marshall stack and plug it in.

No electric? Plug the Yamaha in. Your neighbours will love you.

ST180 driver arrived this week.

Only the 2nd blue headed club I've owned after my used JPX-900 3 wood off eBay.

Best looking driver I've ever seen. Most I've ever spent on a single club.

Not been on a course since August but hoping to get out next week.

Odyssey O-works #7 and Cobra King F7 driver. I tried both the ST and the GT, couldn't get on with them (entirely user error). Same for the M3 and 4. A little better with the Epic, much better with the Wilson Staff C300 but then tried the F7, just clicked. The most consistent shaft then came out as the ProjectX HZRDUS 75 stiff. Happy with my purchases.

Did the shafts on any of the other drivers come even close to the 75 grams in weight?

I ended up selling the Tour Stand bag already. :D

Nope, stock stiff in the Mizzies and TMs. Settings that were adjustable were adjusted I was just sh*t with them. Tried a few different shafts in the C300 and F7. Felt a lot more confident. The F7 felt a little light so the guy doing the fitting swapped in the HZRDUS 75g and happy days. I've taken it out on the course with my old r11 (stiff, fujikora motore, dunno weight, bought it off shelf without fitting) and the ball flight is lower with the K7 but not by much and I reckon the accuracy is better.

Bought a set of MP18 MMC from PW to 4-iron in March 2018 and I am not happy with my performance with them. I think it
is the shaft, which is not ideal, although I got fitted for them. Go back to my old set of Mizunos (MX25 & MP53) and see what happens. Played for about 6 rounds.

So if someone is interested...

- Standard loft, length, lie, grip
- Shaft: Project X LZ 5.5
- PW till iron 4

I am based in Switzerland - PM me @ ofierz@hotmail.com.

@ Admin - please delete this, if it is not allowed. Thanks.

For the first time in my life I bought a shaft. It's the Fujikura Speeder Pro 74 Tour Spec, S-flex driver shaft with a Titleist adapter.

I was just chatting with our pro shop ownerwhen I saw the shaft leaning against their desk, someone had just swapped shafts and it was laying there and I got it for 50 Euros. I didn't have a chance to try it yet though.

I need to try it on a Titleist head to see if it's as good as the fairway wood shaft seemed to be and if it is, I need to re-shaft the 650 unless I happen to, heaven forbid, like some Titleist head. :D
