Got a pair of Jade Adller DC-001 wedges. The silver not black.  Made in Taiwan.

Well.. to commemorate me taking over a site with what looks like 4 active members now (hahahahahah), I picked up what is I think my 6th Gold's Factory putter.

There's actually other stuff which I'll get around to posting.. soon...

For like the 4th time bought a T.388. Iíd been thinking about doing a short driver build anyways and I stumbled across a T.388 built to 43.75Ē with a Fubuki AX 75S shaft in it swing weighted to D4.

I hit 3 wood great off the tee but really struggle with driver. The club where Iím a member is really penal when fairways are missed but we have some long holes too that still require decent accuracy where three wood just doesnít provide enough distance. Several of the par 4s are over 400 yards and if itís into the wind three wood leaves a long second shot in.

I think part of the problem with driver for me is that itís teed up high and I change my entire swing the a flat inside to outside and struggle with directional accuracy. I always hit it solid I just donít know if itís gonna be a 40 yard block, left going left, or a straight bomb whereas everything else I hit well is down near the ground with a more upright swing.

I wonder if the shorter length combined with the smaller head being able to let me tee it low will help with my consistency? Time will tell.

I still have a T.388.  I stuffed it with yarn to get the weight to about 207g.  I donít think Iíve got the right shaft in it, though. It hasnít unseeded my go-to driver, which has a Fubuki Alpha.  I think thatís still my favorite shaft.

Itís funny you mention the Fubuki being a favorite. Even 8-10 years ago when it came out it wasnít a high end offering but any club Iíve ever happened to buy second hand that had one in it Iíve really hit it well and left it alone.

Have one in my Egg HD 3 wood (was an upgrade from factory, took me a while to find one) and I hit it great. The HD feels and sounds so much more solid than the OG Egg itís not even funny. Had an Alpha in a Kamui KPX driver and hit that well. Hoping I have the same experience with this Frankenwood I bought from yaj.

For comparison sake I have the M-43 stock shaft in my Egg 7W and I hit it ok off the tee but Iíve yet to hit a good shot with it off the deck. I either top it or hit a low block which usually is a symptom of low swing weight or static weight for me. Put lead tape on the head to bring it up to D2 but still not hitting it solid. I feel like the combination of low static weight and the kick of the shaft really adds dynamic loft at the bottom of my swing and the club face just isnít where my brain thinks itís going to be at impact. So the logical solution is to find another Fubuki to put in it. Hopefully thereís an 85S floating around out there somewhere. Does anyone remember if thereís anything tricky about restarting these things?

Xroz grips.  Got one with a used club.  Felt good and tacky.  Seems to age very well too.

Gonna put these on the Muziik Bangvoo iron shafts and the Tits CP-02.

I wasnt actively looking for this and chanced upon it when the buyee shortlisted it as a possible (all this AI stuff can get scary).  Used but still n very good condition. 5 to PW  Closer CB and 3 closer wedges in 50, 56 and 56.  I suspect one of the 56 is bent to 54 and the other to 58.  Comes shafted with Tour Ad 75 R.  Will have a hit. Suspect it'll be a tad light and soft. If I do like the feel, will keep them for a few years down the road...

Will definitely put the Diamond Speeder in these.  At least in the Closer MB 7I, it was a fantastic combo.

Anyone looking for feel heads... these Closer heads are fantastic and the Closer wedges.. My gosh.. the spin action....

THE TourAd 75 R is too light and soft for me now.  Will be putting in the Fuji Diamond Speeder 80S into these...

Just when I cleared out some stuff.... PXG 0311T 5 to PW heads anyone?
