  • Unexpected improvement

    I have just built the first set of clubs I can be proud of. They are Powerbilt TPS ellipsoid of power peripherally weighted about 10 years old (I think) They were in very good condition (but I was useless with them) and I saw them as something that needed bringing back to their former glory Amongst other things I reshafted them and made them 1/2 o.s. I usually use a off the shelf set of ci7's. I am now playing strokes cleaner than I would make with the Wilsons and I am not rubbishing the Wilsons, they have been great, but I can't help thinking that I am swinging more textbook. See, I didn't expect to hit them well and figured I would sell them, so it wasn't confidence. Can a well customised set, and a back to basics swing actually, unexpectedly improve the performance of ones swing with a more advanced club, once a few rocket off the centre (cause I wasn't swinging well before I took them out)?

    Out and out, yes. Fit for the proper length and total weight works a world of good for most players. And when a swing goes off the rails, the basics, the fundamentals, are a great place to start.

      Thanks LP I am definitely hitting balls cleaner, it's like the recap of fundamentals and finally striking the right custom details have me swinging properly. I played my brother today and when I hit a couple fat I commented that I was trying to hit the skin off it, he commented I don't think so, you look like it's a nice easy swing. Words music to my ears, it's something I have been working on forever and with these clubs, I feel confident to do it. And topping off the pleasure ,I made them.
      On the high side, Peter
