  1. New update....... Accra i-series steel 105R in i210s! 16 greens .....nuff said
  2. Updated Ping Cart bag! Appropriate for this great weekend of remembrance!
  3. 14 GIR's and 5 birdies for a 2 under 70 on a fairly tough track albeit only 6000yd from white tees Incredibly consistent, tons of forgiveness.....very nice feel
  4. So rounds of 73, 72 and executive course 62 I hit 14, 12 and 15 GIR's on bad greens for 2 of 3 rounds.......2,5 and 4 birds Cannot wait until lies get completely dialed in!
  5. So had 1/2" chopped off butt end.....didn't get swingweights but I'll check later.....today I went to the range .....as long as I kept up my rotation vs sliding through, I hit absolute great shots......nearing the end, I hit 2 4i's off the deck that just looked delicious..... Even the misses(thin) went directionally correct.....dying for next round seeing how I'm driving it, putting it and now approaching it with tons of confidence......
  6. Played a familiar course......shot even par with 5 birds and 5 bogies.....2 poor drives didn't leave me much Hit 12 GIR's......the other 4 were a missed 9i, U wedge 6i n 4i......getting up n down on 2 of those and one 3 putt to finish..... The main takeaway from my 2nd Round with Ping i210 irons; I'M MADLY, INSANELY IN LOVE with these irons.......once dialed into my specs(length n lie) I'm truly expecting to average 13+ per round......SERIOUSLY.....these ABSOLUTELY fit my needs : easy to launch, look and feel great, very forgiving without being overly bulky.
  7. Funny you mentioned the Anser forged.....I had those for a minute and yes , that's far more of a comparison than say i20/i25 which featured wider soles on the long irons.....Anser forged was definitely ahead of its time Here is a pic of i210 4i v Nike vr pro combo 2i head......ever so slightly wider but in a good way....as stated my confidence AND launch are higher with these wonderful irons!
  8. Here's some quick , random thoughts; The i210 is an inherent progressive combo set without all of the glitz and glam of modern technology.....no tungsten, no multi-material sans the extra elastomer, no insanely strong lofts....... No the Ping i210 is just a great looking and feeling iron that works for Tour Pros and amateurs alike..... One of biggest takeaways is the CONSISTENCY in feel.....I've played quite a few combo sets over the years; 2011 Nike vr pro combo, Srixon Z785 7-pw Z585 4-6 irons, T200 4-gw to name a few.......the MAIN issue for me is the lack of continuity in the FEEL aspect.....long irons in the sets mentioned have a different feel in comparison to the short irons and after awhile, this wore on me.......call me silly but it just did. The i210s are just very consistent in standard flight and feel .....for someone who plays alot or not so much , this is just a reliable feature that goes overlooked.
  9. 14 greens hit, 2 birds......2 bogies on par 5s and HORRIBLY INCONSISTENT green surfaces.....but 1 over 73 with new irons and putter .....not too shabby!
  10. AWT 2.0 regular.....had in my iblades and just sitting around the house......I tried AMT BLACK R300 and ctaper regular 110g.....those ctaper shafts were very nice but reverberated throughout this old body entirely too much!
  11. Severely late to the party but finally acquired a set of heads 4-U and throwing shafts as we speak! From the reviews and @txgolfjunkie point, still a very heavy LPGA and men's Tours usage including Tavatanakit, Henderson and Cink with wins in the past month!
  12. Same to you and yes , this Speed is a keeper......adding dimensions to my game that hasn't been since M3/S+ Limited 60R combo from 3-4yrs back...... We'll definitely sway a few folks to at least try the Epic Speed......
  13. I'm twice your age probably and nowhere your speed but I'm seeing very similar gains over my past few drivers...... Had original SIM 10.5* that was very steady and in the 225-240 range......problem was the occasional quick hook.....so the quest went on and next up was the tsi2 ......extremely steady and removed the hook but lacked pop...... A friend gifted me a gbb 10.5 epic and there were noticeable 5-10yd gains but spin was higher and into the wind I'd get killed. Went into superstore and tried the LS head and seemingly it was doing quite well....... on the monitor. Had a demo that I took out and it sounded horrible and flew erratically. In despair, I went back to "try" the Speed head......same footprint as gbb epic 17 . After just a few swings I could see the potential. Made the adjustments to -1D setting and it came alive.......I nearly drove a downwind par 4 320yds .....finishing 10yds short of front edge.... 290ish? It has continued we loads of 260, 270, 280yd drives especially downwind.....an xtra gear that I haven't seen or had in a long time.... For me , this is a reincarnation of my all-time favorite driver the R510 non-tp 330cc from 03-04......look, sound/feel, flight and footprint......with Speed being bigger, more forgiving and more stability......I've found MY unicorn......Tensei 65R AV blue D3 swingweight......
