TaylorMade M1 (2016) - Fujikura Pro 71 XLR8 Tour X
I bought a 2016 M1 late last year. Haven't been loving it but had a play last night with a friends which had a Fujikura XLR8 tour x shaft in it. Absolutely nailed it time and again so managed to find the shaft on eBay and will report back how it goes.

Only difference is he had the 2017 M1 head, but by all accounts not a lot of difference there...

I got a bunch of grips in the mail today, finally.

Ribbed Crosslines for my 650 woods, a midsize REL ACE to try out on the EZ Forged PW, Winnpro X 1.18 for my project putter alongside a shaft extension for it and a shaft clamp for a vice. The red MCs are for a friend but those are Plus4s and the order was for normal MCs.

Now, how long should I make my putter? At its longest it could be around 47 inches. :D

Not shiny new equipment, but, a wee book called "Play Golf Forever: a Physiotherapist’s Guide to Golf Fitness and Health for the Over 50s"

Yes, it's hard to tell if I'm over 50, I know, but, this wee book is a straightforward guide to simple exercises that do , (and are) make a difference. Easy to follow and easy to carry out the instructions. Excercises can be done in the house, no need for a gym visit :)

Add to that a Foam Roller for helping to loosen the muscles in the hard to get to parts of the back. bananaman mentioned this to me a couple of years back, only just got one. Wish I'd done it earlier.

Here's hoping I can make some improvements to my "old man" swing for the coming season.

Whilst helping the afternoon pass a little quicker I was having a quick look on ebay , and there it was, the missing link in my bag. I've been looking for a 2014 JPX EZ 7 wood with an RL shaft. Having gone over to RL shafts after my accident I've struggled to find a 7 wood. At last, I've found one. Looks in good condition and once I get a mid size grip on itI'm sure it will become a fixture in my bag. Should make those long par 4s and par 5s just a little bit easier for me ;)

I tested one against my 900 hybrid.

The clk looks way better at address but was so inconsistent on the launch monitor in dispersion and only a little bit longer in distance it wouldn't be a sensible change for me personally.

AG Telford has a 19deg version in Rob with the Speeder HB shaft in stiff to try

Hit a ball for the first time in 6 months today.
Better than expected.

CLK could be a real stonker.

I'll do some more testing after practising more and upload results to equipment thread hopefully on Wed/Thu.

Guess what .... courier managed to lose this in transit .... I never like dealing with that particular courier and this reminded me why.

So, back looking for a 7 wood in RL shaft, hopefully something will come up soon :(
