@  SouthShoreRob : (27 November 2014 - 09:01 AM) @ROBOPTI: I've got Modus Tour 120 shafts coming from Hoss. Can't wait to try them out!
@  SouthShoreRob : (27 November 2014 - 08:55 AM) Happy Thanksgiving BSG!! :kev: :chat: :cheers:
@  ROBOPTI : (25 November 2014 - 08:41 AM) Modus is the best steel shaft out there .. PERIOD :thumbsup:
@  biu997 : (24 November 2014 - 10:25 PM) nippon modus
@  HossOnMoss : (24 November 2014 - 01:37 PM) @TWshoot67: Hard to say what the outcome and results will be, but hiring Como is a good move. He is one of these guys that is really on the cutting edge of the science of the golf swing which will blend well with what Tiger was doing under Foley. Como without a doubt though will have to make some changes, but at least it's not a total "start over" process and he knows what he's doing. Looks like Tiger is going to take more control over what he does with his game rather than following a teacher's instruction to the letter.
@  HossOnMoss : (24 November 2014 - 01:35 PM) @BingHogan: That would be a good test. Without a real formal apples to apples test, my impressions are that KBS Tour V actually shares a mix of characteristics from Modus 120 and 130.
@  TWshoot67 : (23 November 2014 - 01:11 PM) So what's everyones take on Tiger's new swing coach, Chris Como. Thoughts?
@  BingHogan : (21 November 2014 - 01:47 PM) Hey Hoss, any thoughts on doing a comparison of the Nippon 120's vs the KBS Tour V Tour?
@  HossOnMoss : (20 November 2014 - 10:48 AM) What do you guys think about Golf Digest's / Dan Jenkins' recent "interview" with Tiger? http://bombsquadgolf...iew-with-tiger/
@  ROBOPTI : (14 November 2014 - 10:14 AM) Bing - Birds of a feather - Those are the same 2 I am beating on lately (BC+ / 30)

@  HossOnMoss : (12 November 2014 - 08:47 PM) Check out these Taylormade tour issue TP wedges and UDI's including the rare 47° PW and 23° #4 UDI. http://bombsquadgolf...-utility-irons/
@  HossOnMoss : (11 November 2014 - 07:43 PM) And by the way guys, the new Big Bertha Alpha 815 and DBD heads exceeded my expectations today in my initial testing. Really good stuff from Rutherford Road in these new heads! :smilie_cally:
@  HossOnMoss : (11 November 2014 - 07:39 PM) @rfdegen: If it makes you feel any better, I don't take it for granted. :D
@  rfdegen : (11 November 2014 - 03:08 PM) While Hoss is checking out the Game Golf and checking in new releases, we're shoveling snow.
@  HossOnMoss : (10 November 2014 - 10:11 PM) The new Big Bertha 815 heads look killer! New Titleist 915 drivers are on the way as well. I foresee a shootout on Trackman in the few days!!!
@  J13 : (10 November 2014 - 06:30 PM) Very Very nice !!!! Heard the DBD is NASTY!
@  HossOnMoss : (10 November 2014 - 05:45 PM) New Big Bertha 815 Alpha and Double Black Diamond driver heads are in and they look AWESOME!!!

@  J13 : (05 November 2014 - 06:54 AM) Correct me if i'm wrong but watching tv, Joe Miller was using an XPHLEXXX. Robo great work getting your shaft in the top 8 you have a lot to be proud of brother!!!!

@  HossOnMoss : (20 October 2014 - 01:46 PM) @Quantum: Rome 988 is actually a little smoother feeling and higher launch than DI-95 hybrid without feeling "loose" or being spinny. Rome 888 is going to launch lower and spin less than Speeder 757.

@  BingHogan : (05 October 2014 - 09:27 PM) Saw him hit a putter 280! Then saw him play and putted -- 280... :rolleyes:

@  BingHogan : (29 September 2014 - 09:40 AM) Just heard on The Golf Channel -- if Phil and a few others are on in 2016 -- a new Red, White and Blue Skirt will designed for the ladies/guys!
@  BingHogan : (29 September 2014 - 09:37 AM) I don't know why but I am just pissed about this! If you are going to have an AMERICAN FLAG as big as a battleship on - you best be bringing' it!
@  Qwagmire : (29 September 2014 - 09:29 AM) Best line I read about the Ryder Cup: Mickelson: What has been in common with all of our Ryder Cup losses recently? Scribe: Mickelson was on the team. Phil broke the code, threw everyone under the bus
@  BingHogan : (29 September 2014 - 09:12 AM) AMEN QUAGS -- and who picked out their "costumes". Maybe the Golf Channel can do a complete makeover... I'm sure that's next.
@  Qwagmire : (28 September 2014 - 11:18 PM) US Squad is too spoiled to do anything but watch their stock portfolios.

@  BingHogan : (12 September 2014 - 11:22 AM) First ball out of the box-- Back of the net! Second, straight little draw. As Kenny Perry once said: " I Kain't miss it!" Really haven't hit a driver like that in years!
@  J13 : (12 September 2014 - 09:45 AM) Bio Cell is a hidden gem. Heard Cobra is bringing the HEAT next year.

@  TJR : (09 September 2014 - 09:30 PM) I need to play. Been going to the range, but my swing sucks right now. Playing crooked stick in 2 weeks if the weather is decent.

@  youngwaldo : (09 September 2014 - 10:52 AM) Got mine yesterday. Going to test them tomorrow.
@  rfdegen : (09 September 2014 - 08:58 AM) Got my sleeve of test balls and will be testing them tonight, if it doesn't rain again! Crap! We're flooding around here these days. Enough already!
@  burniemac : (09 September 2014 - 07:42 AM) Just got a sleeve of the Titleist test balls in the mail yesterday
@  BingHogan : (08 September 2014 - 06:16 PM) Sleeves that have been handed out. Looks like more spin probably due to lower spinning drivers coming out.
@  TWshoot67 : (08 September 2014 - 01:56 PM) Are we talking the New Titleist sleeves that have been sent out?
@  TWshoot67 : (08 September 2014 - 01:55 PM) @BingHogan is this ball from a New Company or just a new Proto for next years possible selections?
@  BingHogan : (07 September 2014 - 10:10 PM) Testing a new ball prototype tomorrow. Sworn to not to loose it. Just hit it and see...
@  BingHogan : (07 September 2014 - 09:58 PM) Maura Passing Point with KBS V -- Sweet! Hit 200 and couldn't put em down. Great turf interaction and feel.
@  TJR : (06 September 2014 - 09:27 PM) I was talking to someone today and mentioned that this is probably the first time I've been completely satisfied with the clubs in my bag
@  BingHogan : (06 September 2014 - 07:43 PM) Decided to go through ALL my bags and start over from driver to wedges.
@  BingHogan : (06 September 2014 - 07:42 PM) PP - large cavity. Doesn't have the new CB yet. Also the new blade. Really expensive, though. Might have to break out the new MP 69's.
@  TJR : (06 September 2014 - 02:30 PM) Should feel buttery soft. Blade or CB?
@  BingHogan : (06 September 2014 - 09:53 AM) Hitting a Miura with KBS V later today to add to the confusion :rolleyes:

DougnDallas captured a couple of pics of these irons this week in Andres Gonzales' bag. They have been out on tour for a little while now and should be the next Adams muscleback release. Very similar look to the prototype set that Adams made a while back for Bernhard Langer.

Here is a pic of Langer's irons from last year for comparison. Little different weighting in the muscle of the flange, but beveling along the topline is very similar on both sets of protos like the old Apex blades that Langer used to play.

These are very good looking irons. I have seen them in Raw,Satin,and black finishes. The black finish is the one that will be going to market. You can't see it on these pics, but they have six or seven tungsten plugs on the back of the club down towards the sole.

Correct, you can actually see the tungsten plugs pretty well in the iron at the top of the last picture in my first post. The various finishes will be a pretty cool option. Posted Image

Not a ton of guys have played the standard Pro Black MB since they have so few staffers and those guys have mostly been using A Tour, Idea Pro, Pro Gold, or A4. Then you have guys like Baddely and Langer that have their own special MB versions. The only guys who come to mind that have played the Pro Black MB on tour is Omar Uresti on the PGA Tour and James Hahn on the Nationwide Tour although I am sure that there have been a few others at times at least.

Watson was trying out some CB1's I believe a while back, but he has been using a set of satin CC1 or A12's for most of this year and currently has those in the bag. He has been changing irons constantly it seems since last year when the groove rule made him switch from A Tour. He did play Pro Gold for a while which is basically a dead ringer for A Tour and does conform in some sets of tour heads at least. So, I'm surprised that he didn't just stick with those.

I'm more surprised that Adams doesn't just make him some legal groove A Tours.

I was told RAW was coming to the market but who knows, here is my set on the way, I'll get some better pics this week when they get here but it is easy to see the plugs here........and maybe a new driver prototype mold in the background :P ;)
