    Did not do the woods. Maybe next year. Wife not thrilled Iím still spending money on golf in October.

    There is more of a heft feeling but that is partly due to the new shafts he put in. I like having the same posture at set-up. And pleasantly surprised how well I hit the 4i. What he might do for you could be very different than me. Iím 6ft, which I think it more or less average, but he said my wrist to floor is long for my height (short arms, who knew?). Wedge feels heavy right now but tried a few chips and you just let the weight do the work, so not so bad. I had 40yrs of standard club size and weight to wipe clean.

    My next round if I shoot 20 shots above my norm Iím going to *****, just kidding.

        4i 1.5" shorter
        wedges 1.5" longer
        Dan adds some extra weight if need be to get the numbers just right

        I think itís worth the drive out or just call him and have a chat. Iíve only test the clubs on a bucket of balls but it went pretty well. It was windy at range so I donít know how my normal distances have been affected. With my previous set-up my 5i was going as far as a well struck 7i so something had to be done.

            I was initially bothered by the short wedges, only because I had made my previous LW extra short.

            After a couple rounds with my TLT, I was adjusted to the longer and uniform length of my LW, SW, GW, PW. ..... wouldnt have it any other way now.

              I got use to my 54 quickly and now I want to do the 58. I'm happy with the stock length on the hybrid and the wood.. driver was always shorter anyway.

                Just a warning, don't be surprised if this actually happens though. The first two rounds I had with my TLT retrofits I loved them and then out of nowhere I went out and shot a 104, it was like I had forgotten how to play, I mean I followed it up with a 75 the next round out but it was just bizarre.

                To comment on the long wedges, once you get used to the added length full shots are just bread and butter with them, your accuracy and distance control will improve like crazy. The only wedge that I have pondered about going back to a shorter length is the 60 degree because I really never used it for full shots and the added length gets a bit annoying around the green, especially since I rely on flop shots and some real "Phil'esqe" shot making around the greens, arguably the strongest part of my game getting it to 2 feet with my 60 and I'm not sure choking up is consistent enough for me on the 60, ordered some new wedges (MD2's really worn out from lots of practice already) from golfworks custom built to Dan's TLT specs for me and maybe the 60 will be better with that set as they are lighter than the MD2's. Too bad we only have a short time left outdoors!

                  Yah my PW and 52 I'm not worried about. My 58 I'm unsure. The added weight won't bother me. But unsure how it will effect my short game touch shots (flops short side chips pitches etc)

                    29 shots, oh my.

                    Ya, was thinking about the 58. I will give the longer length a go before I make any snap decisions.

                    Practice swings will be imperative.

                      Spent an hour chipping, pitching and bunker shots with the 54 and 58. No issues. Actually prefer standing taller.

                        Just met with dan very informative and honest. Am very excited to get my set. Learned that most of my clubs are too upright and my wedges are almost too flat.

                        Was very honest also. Told me my driver pretty much perfect maybe a smudge shorter would work but that just choking down a smudge would be best.

                        Thanks dan!

                          Can the weighting be done without this stuff on the clubhead?

                            It depends on the amount of weight needed.

                            Hosel weights can be used , but most top out at 10grams . It also requires the head to be pulled, cleaned, reshafted so adds cost of 20-30 a club if this is not already being done.

                              If the shafts are steel, then lead powder and a cork can be used - down the shaft and stays hidden. Jeff's set were graphite so there are less options.

                              You may need to replace the grips if they cannot be pulled / saved. This is at least cheaper than pulling the shaft and adding tip weights.
