  1. This would be an awesome opportunity! I've been stuck at the same level for a long time and I wonder if Martin could help me get un-stuck! Main problem is driver consistency and of course, putting. Thanks MGS! Marty Knowles - 55 Cerritos, CA

  5. Agree with Tyk. With all those logos they better be paying me to wear the shirt. Kids will probably like it though.
  6. This sounds fun, I'll give this a shot... I'm currently playing Miura Small Blade irons with KBS 6.2 C-Taper shafts. My handicap is a +0.5. I am 50 years old and I'm right handed. My loft and length are standard and the lie angle is 1 deg. upright. The two companies making the best irons right now are Miura and Mizuno. The two companies making the worst irons are Cleveland and Cobra. Cleveland for their unimaginative design and their horrific customer service. Cobra used to be a favorite. They made solid irons and the price point was very good. Now, everything that they release is orange it seems to appease Rickie Fowler. I must be getting old. http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=3399252379482&set=pb.1214947530.-2207520000.1349121299&type=1&src=http%3A%2F%2Fsphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net%2Fhphotos-ash4%2F412121_3399252379482_1620862683_o.jpg&smallsrc=http%3A%2F%2Fsphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net%2Fhphotos-ash4%2F294903_3399252379482_1620862683_n.jpg&size=2048%2C1365 Miura Small Blades Sound and Feel I feel I should start this review with a disclaimer. Hit these irons at your own financial risk! The second I hit one flush with these beauties I was sold. These Miura's are the crack cocaine of the golf industry. Now that you've been warned, it is a little difficult to describe the feel of the Miura's because when you catch them right you feel...nothing. Let me tell you, the last time I had this feeling was almost 30 years ago hitting a Titleist Tour Balata 90 with Wilson Staff blades, and I was hitting the Miura's with crappy limited flight range balls. I know a lot of people will say they get a similar feeling with their irons, and prior to getting the Small Blades I would have been right there with you. My previous set were Mizuno MP-60's and I thought the feel on those was unparalleled, but even when I hit the MP-60's flush, I always felt a slight click in my hands. That click is gone in the Miura's. The sound of these irons is a better way to tell true contact. Flush shots respond with a very satisfying dull thud similar to a well struck bunker shot. Slight misses and thinned shots have a little click and a slight vibration,no big deal. However, big misses let you, and everyone in your vicinity, know that that wasn't your best swing. In fact, it's the worst clanking sound I've ever heard from an iron. One miss caused the guy hitting range balls in the next stall to even flinch once. He told me it sounded like I broke the iron and he was ducking to avoid the "shrapnel".
  7. I already own a pair of the original True linkswear Tours. This new sole looks "grippier". I'd love to see for myself how much better they've gotten.
  8. I can't believe he admitted it! The Burner irons basically take your current 7 iron and slap a number 8 on the sole and all of a sudden you can hit your 8 iron ten yards farther. That's technology for you.
