  5. 25 29 33 37 41 45 49 53 57 61 KBS Tour V x stiff Std loft, lie, length, grip Handicap 10 The name Hogan means tradition, excellence, and uncompromising standards. I "borrowed" my grandpa's copy of Power Golf as a kid and even though he's been gone 30 years I still have the book. I read it as a kid and a couple of times since. While I have not tried to copy Ben Hogan's swing the book has been a big influence on my game. I am a bit skeptical of the on line fitting system as my prescription put me into x stiff shafts. I currently play KBS Tour stiff so I find it hard to believe that going to the V model would bump the flex to an X. I was honest and conservative when answering the distance questions so I don't think that's it either. Also they put my first iron at 5* higher than my hybrid but with an extra club in the scoring range. It would be interesting to test their approach to set makeup. I would love to be chosen as a tester. I am interested in the clubs and have been following their story ever since the rumors started. I think my skill level is also appropriate for testing their club design principles and marketing line that these clubs have enough forgiveness for a range of players, not just the best ball strikers. I will test on the range, at multiple courses in varied conditions (including wet and rain), from all kinds of lies, and collect and share flight and results data.
  6. My swing speed is similar to yours but I was never able to really play the Pro V1x or RZN Black effectively (don't compress the ball). I ended up liking the RZN Platinum. Seeing as your numbers seem to improve with the 2015 Pro V1, I was wondering if you ever tried the Platinum and, if so, how you think it compares to the new Pro V1. It's really interesting to see the gain in ball speed of the new Pro V1 with basically the same swing speed as the others. Something must be going on there. It's got my attention big time.
  7. Thanks for the rest of the story. Having never experienced Edel putters in person it's great how much of your experience you were able to share. I got a Ketch (Version 1) last year so I also appreciate the comparisons you included. So many cool putters out there (and those that haven't been created as well) yet we can only use one at a time. Seems like a shame. Hope your new one keeps you smiling
  8. Congrats on the putter. It looks beautiful. I would love to do what you did but it would be so hard to turn over complete control to the maker. I mean, what if you didn't like the result? That being said, you were wise to let the artist create and just stay out of the way. Good instincts vindicated by great results. How about some additional information for us: What is the head made of? What is the toe hang, or is it face balanced? What's the deal with that shaft? Also, can you add some more about the different alignment markings you tried and the difference in the results you saw? Thanks.
  9. Thank you for sharing your feedback, especially the comparison to the MP-54s. I have Mizuno irons and wedges so they set my standard for forged feel. Nice to know the SCOR is not too different.
  10. Thanks Kenny B. Seems logical enough that I should have thought of it myself. Now that I have your attention (and any other SCOR users please chime in) what are your thoughts about the SCOR wedges being "form" forged vs. the Hogan TK wedges being "regular" forged? I've read that some reports that form forged doesn't feel as good. And what about the Hogans not having the same grip with the dots? I've read that a lot of you guys like the dots on the grip for dialing in distances on less than full swings. I'm looking for feedback/reasons why one would choose one over the other (SCOR / Hogan TK) if I was able to get either? Thank you.
  11. I visited the SCOR web site yesterday and tried the fitting tool. Since they came back with a recommendation, is it safe to assume that we can still order new wedges? But for how long....? Does anyone know if there are any current valid coupon codes like the ones they've had in the past? Seems like they would be trying to get rid of the remaining stock before they switch to Hogan.
  12. Thanks for the additional pics. Those are some seriously nice looking irons. Love the sole and top line. Can't wait to hear how they feel and what kind of forgiveness they offer. Please let us know what your old irons were and how they compare once the snow melts.
  13. These are REALLY NICE looking clubs. Better than I expected. Could you please post a pic of the face and maybe one form address that shows the top line? Please let us know how they perform once you've hit them.
  14. I am a huge Adams hybrid fan (& FW too), so I'll say that up front. I played the Pro Gold in 2 and 3 hybrid with matrix Ozik Altus HB stiff. Both were and still are outstanding clubs. Problem started when I switched irons to the JPX 825 pro my 4i closed the distance gap. My solution was to try the Adams Super LS. Loved the ball speed from the head, But hated the feel (thick hatchet slamming into a coconut), hated the stock shaft And didn't like the lower launch and the tendency to hook the crap out of it. The solution was the XTD ti in 20* with the Ozik red tie stiff flex. The result is ball speed And distance comparable to the Super LS but the shaft is awesome and The feels is more reminiscent of the Pro Gold. I like to sometimes Chip with my hybrid and the XTD ti makes that possible again with Good distance control. The XTD ti is so good I sometimes consider getting a 16* To replace my 3W. All that said, you may want to check out a tour edge exotics as well.
