S*berianDVM said: a box with 10 Hogan Apex blades, reshafted with frequency coefficient matched Rifles. :D Good thing too, because last evening the head came off of my old Apex II 5 iron. Now if only I didn't have to work...............
D*vebud said: Close up early and schedule a tee time now.:)
*altim said: Let us know how they work out. Of course, now that you have been properly fitted and outfitted there is no one else to blame but yourself for a bad round. :D

When I brought the new driver back from Austin a couple of weeks ago I even had it my office trying to find a place to swing it. Luckily nothing got broken. Let us know how you like those shafts. I demoed them a few months ago and like them but haven't pulled the trigger yet.
R*ckford35 said: Those shafts are sweet. My set feels the same from top to bottom, and I love that. R35
*zra76 said: How bout some pics.... I am itching to buy something, all I have bought lately are tees, balls and a glove. Seriously thought about buying some PRGR blades just to mess around with but the price jumped a bit out of range. Are those the Hogans with the grey colored recess on the back?
S*berianDVM said: Picture just added. These Apex blades (1998-2002) do NOT have the recess, but I know the ones of which you speak. Seriously, though. I doubt that I will ever buy another off the rack set of clubs. These feel totally different than they did with the standard Apex 4 shafts. Trouble is, Dana is talking about selling and retiring. That's why I rushed to have this set made.
*zra76 said: Wow. Those look great, nice set of sticks doc.
S*berianDVM said: Thanks, Ezra. The rain has stopped for a little while. It's time to see if I can sneak out of the back door and get in a few holes.
*zra76 said: I wish you luck but don't get down if you don't hit them well. It usually takes me a while to get used to a different set, never mind blades.
*altim said: Quote: Originally Posted by Bravo A great mindset to put him in for his first round with the new sticks....:) :) Thats what internet friends are for....:D I have a feeling Doc is going to be just fine. He has come a long way since shooting his 106's. Shooting rounds in the 80's and some custom clubs can add a lot of confidence to one's game. Are the 70's far away?
R*ckford35 said: Quote: Originally Posted by ualtim Are the 70's far away? Well, Doc is about 67 years old....:D R35
S*berianDVM said: Yeah, I'll be shooting my age soon. From my wheelchair. :D OK here's the scoop on the new sticks: Instead of being smart and going to the range to get the feel of them, I was like a 4 year-old at Christmas.....straight to the first tee! No warmup, 1 practice swing with the driver and away we go! Now remember, I kept my old driver, 3W, 5w, putter, just all new irons. #1: driver, 3wood, 52* to center of green(felt great), 2 putt, PAR #2: driver, 3wood, chip to 6', 3 putt, DOUBLE #3: driver, 6 iron into trap, SW out to 6', 3 putt, DOUBLE #4; 3 iron 195 yards over water, pitch to 6', 1 putt, PAR #5: driver into trap, 9 iron to just short, should hit an 8, 3 putt; DOUBLE #6: driver hooked into water, 3 iron, 52* wedge, 2 putt, DOUBLE #7: 4 iron 185 downhill: 4' from pin; missed the friggin putt; PAR #8: driver clipped a tree, 5 wood, short pitch, chip, 1 putt, BOGEY #9: finally a decent drive; 5w to just short, chip, 3 putt, DOUBLE So all in all, the new irons are great, I can't putt! The irons do feel totally different, and with a good swing, they feel like a hot knife through butter. I plan on going to the range tonight for some much needed practice.
*altim said: What did Dana do to your putter? Any changes with the flat stick?
S*berianDVM said: Yes, Dana lengthened the putter 1", straightened the head, and put on a new grip. I did make a few good putts with it, and several near misses. I have never been a great putter, so I'm not blaming the stick. It's me. :(
*altim said: Unfortunately, the only way to fix your putting is to spend more time putting. Did you ever mess around with that Boomerang?
L*op said: Sib, from your round, it seems you only made one good shot with the irons, on the par 3 #7... But seems like a great round nonetheless! BTW, if you don't have time practicing putting, here are quick tips: 1. Practice hitting straight putts, with a square putter at impact. 2. Once you've practiced that, align yourself to the ball and only think and feel about distance. Have fun with your new weapons :)
S*berianDVM said: Quote: it seems you only made one good shot with the irons, on the par 3 #7... Also the 52* 3/4 wedge into the green on #1. That one was sweet, considering that was my first swing ever with the new irons. I was playing from the blues and using DT Wound 90 balls. :D I love the feel, but they are a good 15-20 yards shorter off the tee than ProV1s or HX Tours. Thus the dearth of iron shots and the veritable plethora of fairway woods. Yes, I need to practice some putting. I have a plain old electric return putting cup at home and at work, and I'm deadly on that, but the greens at Goshen are a little tougher.
*racer said: Anybody else hear that Precision is getting out of the shaft business? They were just acquired by True Temper. So now we'll see True Temper Rifles.
S*berianDVM said: Practiced at the range last evening: Wedges are dead straight: PW (47*) goes 120 yards with a full swing 52* goes 105 yards with a full swing 56* goes 95 yards with a full swing I have to spend some time hitting half shots with the wedges. 9,8,7,6,5 irons are consistently easy to swing and most shots have a slight draw, which is my natural ball flight. 5 iron was 175 yards in the air, measured with my laser. 4 (23*) & 3 (21*) irons were a little more difficult to get airborne. They were straight, but I wasn't making good contact. Hit 2 or 3 good shots with each, but needs more work.

*tlgolfer said: Nice!!! that's all I've got to say. Good luck with them.
VtD*vot said: Those are beauties Doc. I love Hogans
S*berianDVM said: Thanks, guys. :) I'm hitting them pretty well, except the 3 iron. Sigh. If I can't get more height out of that club soon, I will ask Dana to build a 3 hybrid with the same spec shaft.
