    No I'm not talking about your beautiful CAG that you probably spent 2 hours tweaking and adjusting to make it as close a likeness to Brad Pitt as possible. I'm talking about the bag 'o clubs you haul off to your local links for a round or two on the weekend.

    Whether it be top of the line, what the pro's use or whatever you picked up at a garage sale that used to belong to some old coot, and haven't touched a blade of grass in 10 years, list them here. Talk equipment or brag about your double sided mini golf putter, all right here.

    Callaway X Tour Series Driver and 3W (Fujikura Stiff Graphite Shafts)
    Ben Hogan 2 and 3 Hybrids (Graphite)
    Callaway X Series Irons 4I-SW (True Temper Steel Shafts)
    Callaway Blade 60 degree Wedge
    Odyssey White Hot Blade Putter

    Hate the hybrids, almost never use them, sometimes bring the 2 and 3 iron to the course instead... Also, the 60 degree can make me mental when the full swing is off, hard to get solid contact with such a thin face... But it is great around the greens.

    SkinniePost representing Callaway, eh. NICE! Those Hogans must be something like 10 years old now?

    Callaway Pre-Owned clubs are awesome... Best deal I have ever found for quality clubs. The Hogan's are like 7 years old, and they have always sucked... Probably need to get the shafts shortened or get stiffer shafts... That is definitely why I can't hit them for crap, but whatever, I actually prefer ripping an iron through the rough anyways.

    Love the 460 X Tour driver though... It is straight justified, instead of a normal driver that is hedged to reduce a fade. I can crush that bitch like 275 or so on a good day. It helps being 6'-0" tall with really long arms ;)

    Yeah, a Tour head is usually a degree open rather than closed. If you have a good swing and are normally square at impact, Tour driver heads are the way to go. Also you probably have a shaft with low torque which helps keep things straight.

    Callaway used IS great. Lots of good deals to be had. Never bought, or played with Callaway though but have taken a liking to their drivers over the past couple years. Last years Razr Hawk is on sale right now and I'm debating picking it up, but for my swing and specs, I've had the best results with the new Taylormade RBZ driver.... can't spend $350 right now on a new club though :(

    6ft, long arms = lots of club head speed I bet.

    It's funny, I've been trying to sell one of them, for what I figure is cheap, but no takers. It's not like Scotty's lose their value like irons or a driver, but not even a nibble for $150 (originally $450)

    Some shitty starter clubs most likely, that all came together when I got them as a gift a few years ago.

    I'm loving it Bulldog. It's got a nice feel and I really needed a lob wedge. Can't complain!

    Nike Wedges are on sale right now at Golf Town (I think the US has a few Golf Towns, like Golf Galaxy or Dicks I think) for $60.00 CAD. I'm tempted to even out my set of wedges so they are all the same. Right now I have vokey's but all three wedges are a different model and finish on the head.

    I almost bought myself the new TaylorMade RBZ Tour model driver today. Was absolutely mashing it today. Had it set to 7.5' and absolutely crushing it, even the Employee gasped when I said I was gonna swing hard, and when I smashed it he almost squeeled. I might be buying the Ad Slogan that the RBZ buys you +17yds... couldn't quite pull the trigger with the wife standing beside me. Gonna have to sneak off to the store sometime by myself. :p

    Really enjoying hearing about what you guys use and some of the in depth details about your clubs. Really enjoy talking swing and club specs.

    I also live in Canada and bought it last winter at GolfTown at about the same price. It's worth it! :cool:

    As Danthraxxx knows - I have a 60* wedge and its a love hate type thing for me.

    I either hit an amazing shot with it or fuck it up royally. For me, when the club has that much loft you really gotta ramp up your swing to get it to go say... 60 yards. So if you ramp up your swing that much and hit it thin? (which I did a shit ton when I first go the club) HOLY BALLS. Talk about ruining a hole. Thats how you do it, lol.

    Its a very risk/reward type club for me as far as full swings but for chipping and what not, oh man, invaluable. I love it around the greens, highly recommend it.

    I used to used to carry a '61 wedge that was money from the sand. It feels pretty damn good too when you pull off a big Phil Flop shot from some shitty position and land one nice and close.
