Picked up a driver head and shaft on the bay for building a new driver for my father in law as a Christmas gift.
I had built him a driver a few years ago using an Akira head and GD Pershing shaft ( boy those were good shafts for the money!! )   
He is still using that but the Akira LCR head from a decade ago is not the most forgiving head. 

He's been telling me that he struggles with launching the driver for any kind of carry with his Akira 10deg driver.
He's 74 Y.O. and very athletic but still a 10deg driver with 60g SR shaft is probably a bit much at this point.
 
So this time, I got him a New Old Stock Hideki Matsuyama head....  "Great Big Bertha"  but in 13.5 HL loft.     
Thanks to Matsuyama , apparently  "Great Big Bertha"  in the used market in Japan is getting harder to come by.
Also located a Speeder Platinum in 4R flex...     Should be a perfect build for him!!

For myself,  I am experimenting a new putter.  A Miura MGP-M2 which is a mallet similarly shaped to the Cameron Red X / Odyssey Rossie putters.
I put on a Garsen Edge Max ( Stenson colors obviously!! )    Considering how different this Garsen grip fits in my hands compared to traditionally shaped putters, 
I am pleasantly surprised by how much more I can putt on a consistent straight line.    So I decided to change out my other two putters with the same grip in different colors!!
Hopefully,  this will get rid of all the twitchy hand issue I have been having lately with shorter putts.     

What else did I get....  MP66 heads from BST... a Clicgear push cart along with a Sun Mountain H2NO cart bag ...  of and just yesterday  a Seven 64 deg wedge head from BST 

Now I really need to start selling my other stuff!!!  :)

'Great' stuff.

You know when the Big Bertha with the sliding perimeter weight came out,  I immediately thought of MP600 Fast Track and MP630 Fast Track.   ( Did Cally pay Mizuno patent royalty? )   
I played the MP600 back in the day .. it was a wonderful driver.      Looks like GBB improved upon that design.    Great stuff indeed.

A new putter is in the house: Grindworks Forged Milled Plus One, Mitsubishi Diamana Protoype, Grindworks midsize grip. I'm not sure wether the grip will be played or not but for the build it will be used.

The Team Niimi Original 2133 Putter looks beautiful. Two things took it out for me: flare tip hosel and face balanced.
