mr22putt: I use to own the Toaster in a Stick after hitting a playing partner's driver...1st used club I bought off the internet....$195?? in 2000. Aug 18, 2019 17:05:35 GMT -7
hardpan: I used "toaster on a stick" and Strawsicore in the last week talking to customers, weird :) Aug 18, 2019 18:19:30 GMT -7
hax: I had a Ping WRX Toaster on a stick...which was an AJ Tech Metal X shaft. I hit some of the longest drives of my life with that club. Aug 19, 2019 18:10:13 GMT -7

boomslang: Golf equipment has changed a lot. I haven't followed the trend. Still playing my Ping G2 driver and blades. LOL Aug 19, 2019 21:52:33 GMT -7
Galgolfer: I agree with you Hax that Sensicore (or any vibration dampening) changes the way a club feels but if you've got pain they can really help. Aug 20, 2019 5:16:35 GMT -7
bumblebees: I have Greg's Toaster on a stick. I bought it from him at Bethpage if I recall correctly. At the same time he 'leant' me the matching 3 wood which I still have as he died a couple of weeks later. If I ever make it out to another G tourney, I'll bring them. Aug 20, 2019 8:31:33 GMT -7

nrjyzr: Black Toaster of Death. I remember posting a pic of one next to my KZG MP driver, at a whopping 230cc. Then the Integra 400 happened... Aug 21, 2019 17:35:32 GMT -7
