Can we get a flow chart or something
No, you just have to keep up.

Played the Masdas this morning and can't tell how I shafted them.  If I used a 1x soft step and let the extra long hosel do the 2nd soft step or if they are straight in.  Also, seems I left them really long so that I could pull the shafts and still play in other irons.  Need to pull a grip on one to find out.  That might throw a wrench in the plans.

Pulled it the Labo 247 with OTI Tour 100x this morning.  I believe I SS them 1x and they were playing pretty well today.  Good arching flight, not my preferred penetrate and plummet but good distance and consistency.  A little lite on the spin, but there are only a few clubs I back up vs bounce and stop or a little roll out.

Back to thinking X flex SS once or S flex HS is still the right build, just need to get some strength back after the winter off.

Loads of things working against me.  Also play early morning so club face and ball are dew covered.  Not to mention that it is in the low 40s F right now so balls are rock like.

I think the Brits have a hard time realizing people in the northern US get 3 months of Siberia, 6 months of Scotland, and 3 months of Mumbai.

The lockdown seems to have curtailed that a bit.

Finally purchased some de-rattle glue and fixed an 18* ONOFF Type S hybrid.  Shafted it up with an idle Roddio i10 #2 in popsicle color scheme to match with the Yam 020.

Will likely pull the i10 shafts in my Epon 903 DIs and put them in the pair of Kasco itility clubs, i3 & i4, to complete the Yam bag.  For now the O'rion, I mean Seven, wedges are in along with the Kasco driver and Betti putter.

The Yam build is rapidly growing on me.

Broke down and built up the TS909 with the Attas 10SX.  I soft stepped them one time.  Also put ~16g of lead tape as a wrap under the grip.  Will start doing some MOI tests on other clubs and finish the 909s after that.

Played them this morning and had some really good contact.  Also put the Muziik wedges into play and was very impressed with them.  Will play through the weekend with them as built before swapping out the shaft for the Attas 10s with 8iron shafts going in the 54* and 58* and a PW shaft going in the 50*.

Why the lead tape under the grip? Reproductive years must be over.

I still prefer to have some amount of back weighting.  Since all of the tourlock style weights are in other shafts and I am not sure if the old amount is too much, this will give me some way to play with the total amount.  I installed the A50 grips that have the weight plug but am capped @ ~20 grams with just that method.  So the weight under the grip increases the range, but includes a number I know is too light.

But yes reproductive years are in the past.  Now it is just practice in case I am called upon to repopulate the earth.
