PostSubject: New toys from Eric   Wed Jan 06, 2010 11:44 pm

Gotta thank Eric again for hooking me up with new toys to play with. I’ve been pestering him about a hybrid and a new shaft for my driver for many months, and he has been very patient with my ramblings. Although I have yet to test the new toys out on the course, I am pretty excited about them because in all my dealings with Eric, he has never once pushed a product on me and only ‘allows’ me to get what he thinks is suitable for me. Now that I’m back in Shanghai, I just need to wait for this cold front to blow over so that I can hit the greens!

Separately, he and his wife were extremely hospitable during our stay in Singapore. Not only did we hit some pretty good eating spots, we also got to taste their cooking, which I must say is pretty damn good! Only thing missing now is to plan a golf outing the next time we’re back! Hopefully with more new toys Wink

Eric is ace. He's been taking good care of me ever since my last trip back to Singapore when I started going to his shop. Like your experience, he's never asked me to get anything that isn't right for me. In fact, I'm usually the one bugging him for stuff Very Happy

raquel... if we are staying on topic of bigfish.

the Zen Oracle putters are good to try and they are forgiving. they got 3 appendages up from me. (2 thumbs and another part of the body). You just got to get over the neck options as not much is available. I am lucky to get my preferred neck option available. Short Slant/Mid Slant.

as for lob wedges, you can try the ikasu wedges. i have heard dragon and tiger stories about it. i just cannot get over the off-set of the wedges. its a personal thing for me.

thanks Desmond.

Zen Oracle putter- this is the type of putter I'm looking for. My current putter is too light for me now I guess.

Are these items available at BFG now DGMan?

DGman, i think there will be nothing left by the time I get back in Feb! Smile

Can't see the pics though. Flickr is blocked in the UAE cos women keep putting up pics of their boobs or something. Imageshack works though!

I do not know which Han is that, but I wish you all the best & hopefully dont burn a hole in the pockets.

I am not a car dealer, but I can point you in the right direction if you are looking for a VW or Audi. Wink

Justin Han is in my opinion Singapore's next champion, turned Pro recently, won on the SPGA circut as an ametuer, (while doing his NS no less) I was playing with him...

Very nice guy, will go far.....

Not like some of the upstarts coming thru the ranks.... Mad
