this bag has become my fountain of youth!  in the past year and a half I have gone from a 7 to a 12 hcap.  lessons and swing changes resulted in very inconsistent ball striking and I needed more forgiveness as well as distance.  have have been playing this setup for about a month now (except for the wedges which arrived 2 days ago) and haven't shot above 87 since.

driver - not a huge fan of the sound but the results are fantastic, squeezing out 250+ on SS around 100.

3w - the 3ht is simply the easiest 3w off the deck I've ever hit.  not as long off the tee as some others but so so easy to launch

egglets - I do not like the sound or feel of these but they are the most forgiving clubs in my bag and I really rely on them on the long par 4s (my home course has 4 over 425) as well as 2 long par 3s and some of the par 5s

irons - these have done the most for me as my iron game was mostly to blame for my poor scoring.  for the amount of forgiveness they provide the feel is fantastic.  really poor swings still have a good result, often still hitting greens...and they are at least a half club longer than my 302s

wedges - I was Leary of playing different wedges but after one session I'm happy with the shots I play w each.  the bold is one of the best bump and run clubs I've ever played, really holds it's line.  the stx is high bounce and great out of the sand and w the 50/50 chip (only 1 practice session w it though) the copper pp is perfect for the lob shot.  am loving the graphite shafts in these, despite some misgivings (thx to s&j for the suggestion on graphite shafts in wedges)

putter - this has been in the bag the longest of any club.  great feel and roll!

hcap has come back down and trending back to where I was before.  have been winning some cash and am now looking for ways to keep my hcap higher.  confidence is up and am enjoying the game more.

big thanks to c and everyone else who's advice was crucial to putting this set together!

Try 9 and a shower before work. Depending on how far course is from office and assuming course opens early very doable. When I am no traveling I get 18 in and shower at lunch, but I am a home office guy.

sometimes I do that if I don't need to be in till 10 or I'll go to the range from 7-8 in by 9..;

this bag has been great, ground out an 82 today which for me is fab given my home track is 6830 from the blues...

I hate this bag now (except the wedges) went back to my 302s....was possibly the honeymoon period and then some better than average play...

I benched the egglets for two weeks and I miss them already.  taking the 302, 202, 902, 103 & 208 bag to captiva this w/e through next week.  we'll  see how it goes....
