Even better still. Beer on me, I have a set of KBS shafts that'd make a superb combo for them!

Don't worry, they'll be staying in Singapore as my gamers Smile

6 sets of blades and counting - 2 sets of TM RAC MBs, 1 set of TM TP MB, Miura Giken MB-5003, Cleveland CG1 Black Pearl, KZG Forged Z0, King Cobra Pro MB, Mizuno MP32, and Mizuno MP14s. Believe me, your Pro-100s will be right at home with this crowd. Rest assured they will be well-loved Smile

btw, i met one of your students, and I think I'm going to need some sessions from you to get a benchmark of where my game is and where I can improve. Ballstriking defo doesn't stink, but I just can't seem to make the shots I need sometimes.

Ever tried the Bridgestone e6+ golf ball? Don't know if you believe me or not (maybe it's psychological), but I got a couple of e6+ balls from a friend and tried em on course without knowing if they were 2,3 or 4 piece, or whether they were for distance or spin.

Noticed that my driving and iron shots were straighter, less prone to my natural fade, and I was getting good yardages off the tee, and good control around the green. After a couple of weeks, I spotted e6+ in a retail shop and the box claimed that the e6+ was designed to reduce sidespin (no idea how that works), while maintaining good control around the green.

Maybe it is psychological, maybe not, but every time I see water or a narrow fairway, I pull out my e6+. And I've only lost 1 out of the last 5 rounds I played Smile

I'm flying back to Dubai on 19th Feb due to work commitments, but we can meet up at BFG on Friday 12 Feb (I'm passing through duty-free, want a nice bottle of wine instead of beer? Smile) around 2 pm? I need to visit The God of Fitters at the Fishy Shrine before CNY Smile

Alternatively, if you're up for it, I'm trying to arrange a round on the Tuesday after CNY Smile

Tour slut not the unappreciative sort okay? Besides, I got very good reviews of shorthitter from one of his students, and I need a 2nd opinion on my course management and which areas of my game I need to work on.

Getting a proper handicap card from the UAE Golf Federation this year, and I intend to rid myself of the 'buaya' tag that I kena slapped with. Still a slut, but not a slutty buaya, ok? Very Happy

He he silly reallly, was going through storage and many sets I gave away, but this one could not.....



They are nothing special, you could get very cheaply online, but these babies have followed me around the world, my best result in Fiji when I played with Vijay's brother.

Was looking for a blade lover to pass them too......

Hard not to fall in love with them. I've learned that softness of the heads is one thing, but the shafts do make a difference for me. Give me a really soft head but stick in something as harsh as S300 and I will cry. That's why the MB-5003s feel so easy to play - partly the softness of the steel used in the head, but also cos the KBS Tour shafts have soft tips compared to DG and PX shafts.

Not tried NS Pro yet, but since KBS is working well for me, I'm sticking with it Smile

He should be able to make it. Not sure how long you guys take to play a round, but I usually finish 18 holes in 2 hours flat when playing alone. No mulligans, but then again, not much water here in Dubai!
