I ordered a 5-wank wedge set with the rhubarb utility chipper

You'll be five knuckle shuffling your way to the top of your club championship with that short game set-up.

Here's a thing, how about you insert a shaft in a head with the label down and play it as is.....like the rest of us!

Drol, you should post a  writeup about each set.
Good idea. But not on all of those. Besides i am doing a renovation of my home golf workshop in between work so this may take a while.

And a few of those clubs you already did a very good write up, iirc so no need for mine.  :)



More opinions on the same clubs are tremendously useful for comparison's sake.

How do you like the Three Luck blades?  Have been toying with the idea of getting a set of those.

That club is with my friend now. It was on the firmer side of soft (which not a bad thing actually) and had a sharper leading edge that made it a bit more difficult on softer conditions. Sole grind was like the old model tourstage x blade 2. Offset and topline was perfect (minimal offset, thin topline), neck transition/ flow was great.

One thing about it that set it apart from the other mb sets  that i own was that on address it looked like it wants to fade. I think the toe part near the sole was a little rounded in such a way that on address even if the scoelines are square to target, the whole club seems open. I dont know if that makes any sense. The friend who got it also noted the same and since he was fighting a hook he kept on bugging me to sell it. i made the mistake of offering to sell it if he pays me the same amount i paid for it. Now its with him. :(

Whatís a shaft spinner?

Donít use the heat gun to remove shafts, especially graphite shafts.  Get a mini butane torch.

You will also need a graphite shaft removal tool, a mini chop saw to cut shafts, and a ruler.  I like the the club ruler made by Golf Mechanix.  Itís very accurate and you can measure loft and lie with it if you buy one of their adjustable protractors.


Interesting... I find a heat gun is better to protect graphite shafts as opposed to a butane torch which i use for steel shafts. This is especially so for woods   I have seen so many wood head paint bubble from excessive heat from a butane torch. 

The  Bosch power cutter is very versatile and with a thin enough cutting wheel, is very good for graphite shafts.

Getting a shaft extractor and swing weight scale from Golf mechanix. 

A shaft spinner is used to to find the spine (s) of the shaft and all shafts, even the 7D has a spine.

The "spinner" above, in fact any bearing based spine finder, absolutely won't do the job! Don't buy it. You may think it finds spines but it almost always doesn't. See here: https://www.tutelman.com/golf/shafts/allAboutSpines2.php

If you want to get into spines etc, you really need to FLO the shafts. Best is to get a Frequency Analyser and tip weight (usually comes with one). You can dabble in CPMs too. I also like to use a little laser too (when I am looking at oscillation patterns and not CPM) affixed parallel to the shaft. The laser can double as a laser aiming guide for putting - so you can see where the face is pointing at address, impact and through the stroke etc.

Thanks.  Floing is a real PITA.  Ive never got a straight line ever and that's without any beer too.

I guess i could just but the tip weight with laser from golf mechanix as well and the shaft extractor can double up as teh butt clamp for floing..

Interesting find on the lie angle. Iíve often thought it is probably the most overlooked spec in golf and wonít even put a new set into play until theyíve been checked and set correctly as Iíve learned over the years what lie I need for each club length.
