could you define "modded" ??

my idea of modded PS's goes waaaay back to the 90's where i would take my PS1, PS2 to Mexico and have them break it open so they could "install something" so that they could play bootleg games....

yeah, i would drop it off at the flea markets in Monterrey Mexico, pay $150 and this 15 year old kid would take it apart, solder some "piece" on it, and BAM, i was able to play $5 ripped games...

had over 25 bootleg games for my PS1 in 1996.

then, in 2001, i took my PS2 and got that one "modded"...probably bought another 8 or 9 games for my PS2...

my POS little brother pawned both of them in 2002 for $100 while i was stationed in Camp Pendleton.

the guys buying them probably had ZERO IDEA that they could rip games and play them on their consoles.....

by the time the PS3 came out, i was already out of the video game scene....

or some would jay jailbroken or rooted. I can now play backups of games or I can mount the image and play the game off the HD or I can use an external HD and play the game off that.

We changed my office to my 2 yr old son's new bedroom and I decided to make it train themed. I used to be into model trains, so I dusted off my trains and spent way too much on eBay for new trains, and made him a Shelf Model Train Layout.

Very Cool! I love the impact mechanical models have one young kids. Gets them interested in how things work.

My father has a pretty sweet set up. It's been featured in some model RR mags. We built a wood routed slot car track out side of the train room. The train is pretty cool, but the slots are good fun!

I play somewhere in the range of 250 rounds a year, so the faces actually start to get worn out. 3 years is a hell of a long time for me to actually keep clubs, normally its every year given the people I now know in the golf industry.

Got the same set of 712 mb's with KBS C-taper about a year ago and haven't even played them for more than 10 rounds. The characteristics of the shaft is something I really can't get the hang of and I'm still much better off with my old (really old) 695cb's with KBS x-tours hard stepped. I still keep the 712 around cuz they are just down right sexy right beside my Mizuno Mp32s with DGx100 that I decided to retire and keep for life. I think it's time I throw on some X100 on my 712 MB's and give it a go again. 250 rounds a year is quite crazy, are you a touring pro?

I have never liked the c-tapers, don't know why, just something about them just doesn't do it for me. The tours, however have been great. I have some MP32s around for a set of guest clubs that I still play every now and again, but have been sticking the the Titleist clubs as a whole for a while now. Always liked the X100s, have put them in some of the other sets of irons I have.

I'm not a touring pro, just a business owner/sales guy who likes to golf. I play in 3 18 hole leagues a week, and get out at least 1 or 2 other times a week when possible. Also take 2 or 3 golf trips every winter which turns into 36 a day at times. I have a lot of friends that are willing to come and play golf with me/call me to play golf on a regular basis which makes things easier as well. Having the ability to work from smartphones, having a secretary and having people under me that can get things done has really helped me be able to spend more time on the golf course as well.

Just this year I got some new nike irons (well new to me, bought them off my old man). Before that I had been swinging some off brands from Dunhams that I've had for the past 7 years.

Even though those weren't the best clubs at all, I knew how to swing them. Now I feel like I need to completely get re-in touch having new clubs.

That's where having clubs made/fit for you helps. Of course, that also takes more time/effort/money(in some cases) but changing clubs won't make as big of a difference to you when you get them fit correctly. I can only tell the difference because a spot hasn't been worn out on the face yet.

I wish I had the expendable money to get clubs fitted, but I lucked out and was able to purchase my fathers clubs (maybe used twice?). I probably would still be using my old clubs if it weren't for him wanting different irons. I haven't gotten out more than a few times myself, so I haven't exactly been able to work on my swing, haha.

Getting clubs fitted doesn't cost much, I know most places will do a set of irons for $100 or so and can almost always make do with your current clubs as they are. Only time there would be some real money involved is if you needed to change shaft flex. May be worth looking in to, should you care.
