@  BingHogan : (19 December 2014 - 11:32 AM) Hang in there rfdgen -- I'm not sure if 15* is worse than constant monsoons :yes:
@  rfdegen : (19 December 2014 - 09:45 AM) 15* here this morning. But our indoor range is open and we're able to swing a club again.
@  J13 : (18 December 2014 - 09:58 AM) I play a variety of shafts but the Rome 988 is the best hybrid shaft on the planet
@  Quantum : (16 December 2014 - 11:02 AM) Can you compare 904hb vs DI 95 vs veylix 988?
@  HossOnMoss : (15 December 2014 - 06:56 PM) Did I forget to tell you about these? http://bombsquadgolf...214/#entry71313
@  ROBOPTI : (15 December 2014 - 09:49 AM) PINK RECOILS ?? .... where ?? ... I love it already
@  TWshoot67 : (14 December 2014 - 03:09 PM) OH those PINK Recoils are calling my name.... :golf: :golf: :yahoo:
@  PLYSGLF : (07 December 2014 - 10:05 AM) SEAvsPHI! either going to be a great game or a CRAP game.

@  TWshoot67 : (27 November 2014 - 01:51 PM) Wishing all my fellow BSG'rs a blessed Thanksgiving Day! And may the Eagles put a hurting on those Cowgirls....
@  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!!!!

@  Armyguy13 : (20 October 2014 - 08:14 PM) Voted for Andrew --- he's currently in the lead with 65.5% to 26.5% being the next place vote getter
@  TWshoot67 : (20 October 2014 - 04:54 PM) Andrew great job and I hope you make the Guinness book of world records. You got my vote! shared and tweeted.
@  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.
@  ROBOPTI : (17 October 2014 - 03:05 PM) BSGers - Fellow member & Cally Kings of Distance member Fraketrain needs our help !!! - For a spot in the Guiness Book of World Records http://www.guinnessw...ote-now!-61189/
@  Quantum : (17 October 2014 - 05:56 AM) Can you compare veylix 988 to GD DI 95 hybrid? Also veylix 888 to Fuji speeder 757?
@  J13 : (15 October 2014 - 06:11 AM) Congrats Robo I have it DVR'ed to watch can't wait. Well DONE !!!!!

@  BingHogan : (08 October 2014 - 10:29 AM) They still have a few I 20's on the shelf. Just need somethin' until all the new drivers come out next spring.
@  J13 : (07 October 2014 - 07:50 AM) I"m using an I25 now love it but the G30 LST is coming around January
@  BingHogan : (07 October 2014 - 12:08 AM) So, is the Ping I 25 dead!? Loved the I 20 with the K.
@  BingHogan : (05 October 2014 - 09:27 PM) Saw him hit a putter 280! Then saw him play and putted -- 280... :rolleyes:
@  youngwaldo : (05 October 2014 - 11:12 AM) Yes it is, but we can give him a break because its just for show.
@  Shambles : (05 October 2014 - 03:11 AM) Isn't that considered building a stance ?
@  Callaway_Anthony : (03 October 2014 - 12:28 PM) Unreal what Jamie Sadlowski can do to a golf ball... 331yds from his knees..
@  Jack : (03 October 2014 - 11:09 AM) Yo BSG! What's going onnnnn!
@  rfdegen : (30 September 2014 - 09:30 AM) All I saw over and over was Euros firing at flags, USA middle of green or off. Euros draining putts left and right, UWA missing a lot with tentative strokes.
@  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 : (28 September 2014 - 02:11 PM) He then said: PGA's new mantra instead of "These guys are Good" should be: "these Guys Really Suck!" Thanks Professor, we all agree!
@  BingHogan : (28 September 2014 - 02:09 PM) Friend called. Retired law professor. Told me never to use the word SUCK as it was adolescent term.
@  J13 : (28 September 2014 - 07:56 AM) Well i'm glad football is on today
@  BingHogan : (27 September 2014 - 08:08 PM) So,,they can't play in a wee bit of Real golf conditions. Gettin' beat by French guy. Time for a putting lesson!
@  tmfreak : (27 September 2014 - 07:42 PM) US always wears the most horrid outfits, Saturday RC '14 was a new level of awful. cant possibly play let alone win looking like fools.
@  TWshoot67 : (27 September 2014 - 06:30 PM) USA has EURO just where they want them.... USA:6, EURO:10. The writers are ready for the big story and the cliche' title for said story!
@  J13 : (27 September 2014 - 02:28 PM) Watching Jim Furyk putt makes me want to do a sailor dive off the roof of my house. HIT THE BALL ALREADY
@  lamont6266 : (24 September 2014 - 09:43 PM) The only place I have seen pix is on the dealer's price list. I will try to find it.

@  rfdegen : (10 September 2014 - 07:31 AM) We're still playing golf here - in between thunderstorms. Record rains in WI. Sucks!
@  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.
@  MN NICE : (09 September 2014 - 07:27 PM) NFL is BACK!
@  BingHogan : (09 September 2014 - 03:29 PM) Anybody still playing golf out there!? Man, it's dead.
