Nothing fancy but pure performance: Fourteen RM-22 Tour RAW, Shimada K's-Wedge NW110 (a.k.a. Tour Wedge), GolfPride Z-Grip.

Not JDM, but picked this up today.  My first rangefinder.  I've been on the fence about buying a rangefinder or not.  I've been pretty good at calculating/estimating distances on course via yardage markers, stakes, etc., but never had a way to confirm exact yardage.  Looking to see if I can improve my game by learning and seeing my actual distances on the course. 

Has any of you experienced an improvement in your game after purchasing a rangefinder, GPS unit, etc.?     

Yup... I can pick distance accurately now.. whether I can hit to the exact distance is another matter... ;D

Nice.  I just picked up another wedge as well ... another Grind Studio raw in 48 which I'll bend to 46/7 to complete my 4 wedge Grind Studio setup.  NW110 is still the best wedge shaft for me.  Great feel consistency and performance spin and dispersion wise.

I've never posted before gear arrived but really fired up about these projects...just ordered a basi alpha and a couple MCI black wedge 105 solid shafts.

The basi may get sent off to get a hat sized 155.

The MCI wedge shafts will round out the P3 set w 100s blacks...looking for some black finish 213s and I'm done for the year....

Maybe a putter...

Basi alpha is good!

It really is Art, I had it out in my 3HT last weekend and decided the 70s is perfect fr me.  Smooth, solid, electric, consistent and feels good...the loop cl, bangvoo, Roddio m6 and bootoobee will have a go in the new head unless the basi or the others demonstrate dominance...pretty sure the basi will stay right out of the gate bit u never know...

Hybrids my nemesis. Romaro Ray UT older model, still nice...
Saw the 18 in a shop and was tempted but held firm. Then when I saw the 21 with the same shaft (Attas EZ350 - 85S) it was too much - had to buy them (was running like hell back to the first shop).

One of them didn't have the original head cover so had to something about that too.

Today I'm a happy man.

I have that same U21 but with a Crazy Black Utility shaft.
Good stick!

Not bad.  These are holding up but they're certainly not looking new.  I wear them all weekend and the new ones look decent cleaned up after 6 months (rotated with another pair or 2)...couple cracks on outside and tread spikes worn. 

Don't expect super high end durability and quality with these.  That said they're good quality for the price.  Most comfortable, but new models aren't quite as comfortable as the older ones IMO.
