    I prefer Beverly Hills 90210, then The OC, followed by Dawson’s Creek.  Gilmore Girls gets honorable mention.

    Fujikura Ventus TR Red golf driver shaft.
    Super senior flex for that extra whip?
    Nah it’s Stiff flex.   The red is just a higher launch but the TR keeps it halfway to the Ventus blue as opposed to full red.   

    However I do qualify for aarp so that SS flex w/ the whip could be just around the corner.   Hahaha
    Waiting on demo day at the club to buy a driver. Maybe I’ll find one that’ll fly straight regularly 
    Hahaha, I get that.   I’ve never done a demo day where all groups were out there with Trackman to do a true test.   I’m a dumb loyalist (in this case fujikira) and not a numbers geek when it comes to this stuff.   I just do a little homework and hope what I math translates.   

    Hope you find your straightest club…just make sure you bring a swing at demo day
    For the most part it’s there. I don’t have a slice as much as a right push at the very end. I won’t call it a fade cus it starts off straight. My score tends to accumulate where it counts most, on the greens
    Get fit for a custom putter and you’ll shave far more strokes off of your score than by using a custom driver. 
    Glad to see some fellow golfers on here!! While I wouldn't totally disagree with the putter fitting. But my experience is that you can putt just as well with a $30 putter as you can with a $500 putter, just as long as you like it. On the other hand, if you are losing 5 balls a round hitting your driver OB then I would argue you would be better off getting a driver that fits your tendencies.

    That is sound logic.   I've never been fitted for a putter but I would if that's where I was glaringly losing strokes.     I've never been fitted for woods either but do tinker with shafts, tip adapter settings, etc (mainly trying to regain distance lost in my older age).    However I've always been fitted for irons...hmm now I'm thinking.

    Every aspect of a putter affects aim bias. Head shape, hosel offset, markings, dots vs lines etc. 

    If you are hitting 5 OB balls a round off the tee with a driver, you need a 3 wood and some lessons.

    I find I dabble less with shafts in my older age, and never have been fond of losing strokes, I prefer as many as I can get.

    You are just gaming us true oldsters.  You need to get back into the bathroom putting green  and work on changing hands w/o missing a stroke.  Once you learn the correct grip you will be enjoying a happy ending ambidextrous.

    Just all depends on your individual game. Most 15+ handicappers are losing strokes from penalty shots. I’ve done a putter fitting, and I loved the putter they dialed me into (it was also an Edel that I think you mentioned earlier) but was buying irons and skipped the putter. If you’re a pretty low handicapper and trying to drop half a point then the putter would be a great choice. Of course, this is all my opinion and everyone should enjoy the game how they want

    @Colby lang, had the same issue..

    was told to do a factory reset and redownload the new firmware from the site and perform the update

    apparently, there is a file which will not get overwritten when going from one firmware to another..a factory reset fixed my issue..

    also added the laser as well..

    so between the laser and the firmware, mine holds “0”

    I have several buddies that have them and none of them reported issues.  Maybe they’re just lucky but thanks for bringing it to my attention.   We have an ATN store in Houston I can take it to if it seems problematic.

    Common complaint with these graters is the sticky pesky label that's a PITA to remove cleanly. Quick dip in scalding water and voila!

    Learned something new.

    Picked up a used 15QT chafing set today. The protective blue film on the base stainless steel platform was brittle and stubbornly stuck. My usual hairdryer trick didn't work, folks on ewe tube advocate heat gun, steamer, acetone, plastic scraper and what not.

    SWMBO came to the rescue, try hot water honey, voila, no tools needed (unless you boil water in BGE), just pour and peel, worked like a charm!

    Brought back to its former glory with some elbow grease, not bad for less than 20 loonies tax included. Going to use it for serving large protein; the dome lid should work better than the Costco flat lid for steaming whole packer Montreal Smoked Meat too. 



    @DoubleEgger Found this old post, the usual hair dryer trick didn't work and swmbo came up with the scalding water idea.
