  1. I went through a driver shaft fitting for my birthday last month. The process was frustrating and tiring in the same right. The fitter ended up saying the shaft I bought for my G410 was better than anything I tried fitting into. I bought an Even Flow shaft to replace the normal shaft that came with the club. Also, the individual told me my swing was off, and that I needed to fix that first. Great thing to hear during a fitting. I prefer truth though rather than sugar coating BS. I went back to the pro I used to in order to have him take a look the day after. I am 6' 6" and I hit down

    I have never had a forged iron. I am strongly leaning toward getting fit for a set of these. If my wife allows it of course. These look so good. Would be nice to see a top line view of the club.
  3. I'm pumped to go out and buy a 4' ruler to work on my putting and see how it goes. I'm tired of sucking at putting and averaging 30+ putts a round.
  4. I have an edel putter so I would have to be really careful with putting lead tape any where on the club. I would suggest getting a SAM lab fitting to see if the putter needs better adjusted. I know it's not an economical option, but in the end may save you some money. I've spent around $60 just in grips this year, which has been extremely frustrating.

    I want these. I hope to get fitted for some in the spring.
  6. I'm hoping the wife will allow me to get the new Mizuno irons coming out in Sept.... I have never owned a forged iron and Mizuno is second to no one.

  9. I saw the previous topic about the fix for the G30 issue but wanted to start another so as it doesn't get lost. I was in a scramble event yesterday and was trying to turn down the loft of the driver but it wouldn't move. I lightly tapped but it wouldn't budge at all. I just screwed it back in and went on with it. At the end of the round, I looked at it a little more closely. There's a crack at the base of the head of the driver where the shaft goes into the head. The crack is right at the back. My first question is, what other ways have people gotten the head loosened and moved? The se
  10. I had a new mid-size MCC 4 align grip put on the club. I also had the club bent to remove loft. I took it to where my PSI 7 iron is which was 32 degrees. The weather has been awful here in Indiana so I haven't had a chance to take it to the range to practice. I can't wait to have the opportunity to hit this club. I'm hoping to change my mind about the club from the first outing.
  11. Thank you for the information. I tried youtubing chips and got way to many results. Sometimes it's hard to separate the wheat from the chaff.
  12. Yeah I'm still getting used to finding where everything is on these reviews. I'm still gaming the G30 LST and feel like it's a great club, but at times the dispersion is awful. Did you get fit for a certain shaft, or was it purely stock? I'm a huge believer that shafts are undervalued when being fitted.
  13. I didn't read through the entire thread, so I'm sorry if this was already touched. Right now, I'm struggling with my chipping and the consistency that should be there. I don't have a lot of confidence that I can get a put up and down with I miss the GIR. I'm looking for some tips and drills that I could implement to practice a little bit more. I've tried the forward press of the hands and closing the face down a little and chopping down on the ball. I've also tried the little forward press with keeping the wrists out of the swing, but I seem to chunk a lot of these chips. I used to fully
  14. I am definitely curious on the dispersion numbers for each of the testers. I saw a pretty good cluster out of the second tester. I'm all about gains, but if you become wildly inconsistent, then is there really a net gain. In most courses I play, accuracy is king. Keep up the great testing.
  15. I went to the range Sunday and broke out the M5 7 iron for the first time. Again, looking down at the ball, the club looks amazing. I feel confident that if I don't give a good swing, the club will still produce. one thing I didn't mention above is that I'm 6' 6" tall. Most of my clubs have been extended from 1.5 inch to .5 inches. Also, I game a midsize grip. The club is standard across the board. The first couple of swings weren't great and didn't feel great off the face. My typical bad miss is a toe chunk. Once I got used to the size, the swings got better and the strikes felt more
  16. Today, I was greeted with a lovely Taylormade iron box. I walked into the door and saw the box and immediately asked my wife what it was. She replied with, "I don't know. You tell me?" I started going through my mind about all of the searches I've done recently. I got scared I pocket purchased a club on accident. I replied with, "I swear babe. I haven't bought anything. Especially with out telling you first." I opened the box and saw the below beauty sitting there. I picked up the card and was surprised to see I had been selected based on my response to a post. If I'm being perfectl
  17. I'm currently pushing around the ole Bag boy push cart. I had to screw in a block of wood bc my bag was shorter than where the strap locations were. I will post pics later..
  18. Awesome opportunity guys. I can't wait to see how this works out for you and improves your putting.
  19. I would say it's dependent on if I'm in the rough or on the fairway on how I address the ball. If I'm in the fairway, I'm a little closer to the ball and if In the rough a little farther away. I don't want to bump or move the ball.

  21. This is great information especially if you are not a feel player. My biggest problem is decelerating on the down swing and chunking wedge shots. I always joke with my friends that I'm the best at bogey holes from 100 yds and in. I will definitely be testing this out the next time I'm out at the range. I prefer to not hit full length wedge shots. My body gets all out of tempo when I do resulting in inconsistent ball strikes. Thank you for providing this video for us.
  22. I'm definitely interlock grip. I like feeling I have more contact with the club itself. Overlap just doesn't feel comfortable to me at all. I putt the same way with interlock but I forward press.
  23. Great stuff here. I wanted to game a 60 degree, but couldn't explain well enough to my wife why I needed a $180 club. I did hit them last spring and loved it. The feel off the face is like butter. I also felt more comfortable if I opened the face to do a flop shot.
