  2. I played the combo set for a brief period of time earlier this year and ultimately went back to Titleist because of the dispersion and distance control.

    The Apex's have a larger face and the flash cup technology so when you pair that with an Apex Pro 8 iron with adjusted lofts but no flash cup, it does lead to a distance issue from time to time between your 7 and 8. 

    Here's a real world example, my home course has two par 3's on the front:

    #2 - 172 yards slightly uphill (about 10 feet), with a small green and helping wind. 

    #6 - 181 yards drastic uphill (35 feet) with a narrow, long green and wind always in your face.

    The Apex Pro 8 iron was always my go to on number 2 and the Apex 7 iron was my go to on number 6. 

    Here is my stats when using the combo set: 

    2 - GIR 70%

    6 - GIR 25% 

    Here is my stats after switching back to my T-100s

    2 - 72%

    6 - 76%

    Not trying to sway you in any way towards a different club. Just using my own experience to show you what can happen with that 7 iron being different. That 7 iron could literally range from 160 to 200 for me. I never had that problem with the 8 through AW Apex Pro's though. 

    If you could find them all as being Apex then I think you would see less discrepancy in your numbers.

    Also, make sure it was a true Apex Combo set from Callaway and not one that was mixed and matched after the fact because the lofts would be jacked up, which is what may have happened with mine. For reference, when simply buying Apex Pro's the loft on an 8 iron is 37 Degrees, but with the combo set, it is 35 degrees. Hope this helps and happy hunting, bro. 

    1. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? I have been playing golf consistently since I was 10 years old. My handicap is currently a Three (3), and has been lower in the past whenever I could play more often. 

    2. What do you love about golf? I love the peacefulness of it. Herman Boone (Denzel Washington) said it best when he was referring to the gridiron, "Yeah, this is my sanctuary right here. All this hat red and turmoil swirling around us, but this...this is always right."

    3. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I have always trusted the Reviews and read the forums, but now I would love to participate as well. I feel like I would feel further invested into this community and my experience could only grow from my interactions with other spies.

    4. Where are you from? What is your home course? Campbellsville, Kentucky. Campbellsville Country Club, the course where JB Holmes grew up. 

    5. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? Best would be the Bermuda fairways and climate allow courses to be played much of the year. However, since they are Bermuda, they take longer to get green and lush in the springtime and brown up whenever the first cold front comes through. 

    6. What do you do for a living? Attorney who owns a general practice law firm.

    7. How’d you pick your user name? When I attended the University of Kentucky, I had the pleasure of being the University Wildcat Mascot from 2009 through 2011.

    If I were in the market for a console, I'd be looking at the Xbox - I've always preferred the way the controller fits my hand compared to Playstation. Currently, I do all my gaming (which is little) on PC. I've got enough firepower that I can run the Resident Evil 2 remake at 70+ FPS in 1080p with most settings on high, but that's about as good as I can do with my current setup. Any more demanding titles and I'd have to either settle for a lower frame rate or reduce the eye candy.

    That is a very good point about the Xbox Controller.

    Also, I love how the Xbox controller is compatible with any windows 10 device and now (per their press conference Tuesday) Apple Products via bluetooth.

  4. Grew up playing the Halo and Gears of War Series, so its easy to say I am hooked and tied to Xbox for that reason.

    The one fall back, as a huge baseball fan, has always been that the SHOW was a PlayStation Exclusive. Luckily that is changing with the next gen console.

    Thanks for the reply! I am in the same boat right now! Really debating moving doing combo set with 620 CB with t100 in the 5-6 or I just go All T100s in black or try to combo a T100s/T200 set haha. What to do, what to do?!?!? If you're going to combo the T100s/T200 how would you match up the lofts?? im just curious because after going over the numbers right now and it seems to have a lot of overlap. Thanks for the reply! 

    I play only the 4 iron in a t200 and made the 5 thru 9 irons 1* degree strong because I have a tendency to "balloon" the ball and I have found that it did not mess with the turf interaction. I originally was fitted with bending the t200's a degree weak on a 4 thru 7 set, then standard lofts on the t100-s but for some reason it seemed to mess with my strike pattern and my dispersion was all over the place. Luckily Club Champion upheld their guarantee and after 4 sessions we finally got it right.

  6. Definitely needs to be a buyer's guide on grips because it can make or break a set of clubs. TXG's video talking about different grip sizes is a must watch on this topic. FWIW, I play Midsize MCC+4's for comfort level and it keeps my hands from getting "flippy."

    I’ve been playing 50, 56 and 60 degree vokeys. The 48 was a bit interesting so I’m not sure how I’m going to utilize it in regards to gapping. I could always buy new wedges to gap them out properly.....?

    I had the same issue, I ended up going with a 54 and 58 to combat the 48 degree. I had traditionally always played a 46 PW and then 52, 56, and 60.
