now i know beside me and wilkang, there are 2 more NIKE SLUTs....haha...

anyway back to topic :

for iron set, always use 1 brand.

driver, wood, hybrid, wedge and putter can always use different brand, but you really need to spend lots of time to go explore, try and know what you are looking for.

i would say i'm lucky enough that i have try out the wood, hybrid, wedge and putter of the same brand as my iron and i like them all, and all are playable and manageable for me...keke

The VR Pro Driver looks good and sounds good. But currently still in love with my SQ Machspeed Black square since it gives me what I want - Forgiveness, weight, distance, as a beginner. Since the SQ Machspeed series are going to be phased out, guess I'll stick to it for a long time....

I was thinking whether to change my Maruman putter as well since the Methodcore I'd tried gave me a very good feel. The Maruman was a gift from someone pretty important (not saying it feels bad, but I've been playing with it for the past 8 months and its quite a decent putter) so I was thinking if its pretty inconsiderate for me to just swap it out of my bag though.....

Dun like square head as cant accept the look.. but the MAchspeed Black, Round head look nice. I heard that the previous model of Method putter (black insert) is better then the new model (red insert) not sure if its true

hahaha~ I guess not many can accept the square headed looks. The round head looks nice, but I guess I'm not at that level where I can shape the ball flight yet. And if I do attain that stage, I guess the VR Driver would be sufficient enough to take care of it (but then again, the sound of the VR is irksome to say the least~ I swear the *ping* I get from playing softball on an aluminium baseball bat sounds better!).

With the Str8-Fit system, it also means I can stick to that black regular Fubuki shaft and swap heads around between the Machspeed Square, Round, VR and VR Pro. Then again, I can't seem to find any shops that just sells the driver heads only.... Evil or Very Mad

I'd tried the one with the red insert a few months ago, not the Method with the black insert.

Hmm~ Maybe everyone can have a 'brand fanboy match' one of these days for the fun of it~ lol! ROFL

Just nice! But I'm overseas now though, its either you guys all come to BKK or we can have a short game when I go back during Chinese New Year.

Just to be warned: I'll need to take that PC test first at whatever club you guys are playing~

So its confirmed that the Str8-fit system can change shaft? I have a VR 3 wood with Project X shaft. Its stable but feels dead...

Yes. I was reading about it on GolfWRX the other day:
http://www.golfwrx.com/forums/topic/299070-nike-str8-fit/

Supposedly you can even buy the str8-fit adapter off eBay buy I'm not too sure. One thing is for certain, you can fit the VR and VR Pro onto a SQ MachSpeed Square/Round Black (specifically the Machspeed Black, not the original Machspeed as the screw threads are different) and vice-versa as long as its using the Str8-Fit system.

The only problem is that, with the Machspeed Black square/round head, you only get 8 different position settings as compared to the VR and VR Pro where you get 32 different position settings.

Anyway, I'd swapped my VR Driver head with the Machspeed Black on the Black Fubuki shaft and it fits, works and shoots off balls at the range well. The threads on the screw all matches perfectly and the wrench turns and beeps without giving any problem. But eventually I swapped it back because I prefer the square head.

I probably can't make it for any of the SSNs this year but hopefully can make it for the SSN in January. Maybe can meet up and I'll bring my VR head and Machspeed Black head and we can just swap around and play. Wondering who has the VR Pro head to try though...... Twisted Evil

Hahaha~ Can, no problem. Bring along your clubs and we'll have a game! Laughing December is a good time to play. I'm playing with a fellow GRian this weekend too.

PM me and let me know your details. We can play if its a weekend or a public holiday. Not on weekdays though. My annual leave all kosong already. ROFL

I think you will have clearer idea of what you wish to use in the future once you play more and understand wat you need to help compensate your swing

Hi guys,

Thanks for all the comments thus far! All this started cause I tried cleveland and Nike wedges and liked them both Crying or Very sad

Hence thinking if I should break my TM set. I know I'm not sponsered but more for feel as in if in between a pitching wedge (48 deg) and a 9 iron, I don't want to have too much of a difference in feel as in weight.

Granted shall try all the wedges again at the range or hopefully get some off the marketplace here so it is more cost efficient to try more options.

Well some would say joy of golf is to try new equipment too Twisted Evil

Regarding again with wedges, You must accept there are some Brands like Vokey, and Callaway specially those Mack Daddy grooves thats gives "faster Spin" than TM wedges
