>A few thoughts,



I'm appreciative to your humble opinion, but I've been golfin the 60
wedge over 75 yards all my life. I don't force it out, and I get
accurate shots. Feel is not sacraficed here anyhow, I've tested, to a
degree, a graphite lobber. In fact, witha a forged head, it gives me
better feel. Anyhow, the lighter club will allow me to swing more
freely, and if you think so, I might be getting more accuracy.

I ski, I'm a crazed maniac that lives just to cheat death once
more. I also golf, then I'm a mellow maniac that lives to hit
da' ball 350 down the middle. Live it like it's the end. Thats
my motto. It's Planet Rebok, and It doesn't hurt when you land
a flying, flipping, turning, 200ft cliff into 3ft of powder. :)
Call me sick, stupid, or a racist name, but don't bug me skiing.
