  4. A quick note to let you all know after following recommendations to swing a lighter, softer tipped shaft in my big dog adjustable driver and trying out two sticks that met that criteria that were imported from the JA Pan company (sorry, I couldn't resist that) I have gone back to the ACCRA shaft. The FZ350 - M4 - DYMTEC shaft still looks like new. The graphics are still crisp and the coating is unmarred. Understand, I am not a slob and take very good care of my tools, but wear and tear is inevitable. A close friend who is also a golf pro and a fitter had a hard time grasping that I was able to get the distance and accuracy I enjoy with this shaft. I am very arthritic, have a heart condition, and the guys all say I have a smooth swing that looks effortless. By the way, the ACCRA is also from the JA Pan company. Just in case you wondered. Ike
  5. Am currently playing the JPX 900 Hot Metal irons, the T7 blue ion gap and sand wedges, the JPX 900 Hybrid 4&5, and the 3 & 5 JPX 900 fairway woods. I can play whatever I want and these have not disappointed. Tested the forged as well as the Hot Metal and the numbers and feel made the decision to order the Hot Metal easy. The choice of shafts was better than any I have seen in my many years of choosing clubs and shafts are my specialty. Will be interesting to see how the reviewers feel about these tournament quality clubs. Ike

  8. In reference to my 05 November 2016 post, I have since added the P2 and A wedge to my set, 44 and 50 degrees. Both have a new Paderson shaft for trial and will be adding the P1 soon. Not decided yet, but will probably match the rest of the set with Steel Fiber shafts. I do like the Paderson and they are selling well, but Steel Fiber is a tough competitor for consistency. Not to say the Paderson is not consistent, they are not for the same market. Have read a bit in this forum about looking like grandpa's chipper and other ilk, but unless you have actually hit these heads and seen the results and felt the sensation of smoothness your comments do not merit much.

  9. Lou Eichler, Arkansas using smart phone app powered by Callaway and Bushnell Tour V2 laser. Would really like to try the newer Bushnell as we play (nearly) year round here. The phone app is less than adequate as it requires getting in the shade to read and I prefer the accuracy to the pin and other objects along the way.
  10. Started playing the 7-8-9 irons as supplements to my previous set of Hogan FW 15s. Found the clubs extremely easy to hit straight and LONG. Chose to ignore lofts until they had been played for a few round and have finally settled with adding back one of the Hogan FWs to fill a gap in distance/loft. The forged feel is very similar to my previous forged sets. Many players of other brands would do well to give these a try. I have a choice of any brand and choose my clubs on performance and feel. The BS JGR fill the bill on both counts. Ike
