  1. With those iron shafts, I would've expected the G410 to be an LST.
  2. Hello all and happy Friday! Handicap and Location - 7.4 West Des Moines Iowa (a mere 293 miles from Sub 70 Global HQ) Current Irons and 8-iron distance - MacGregor VIP 1025CB Carry distance for 8-iron about 135. Need more yards but really want a players look. Seems like a fit What do you know about Sub70? - First learned of them thru MGS then started reading up. Have exchanged several messages with them since learning they were based in my Dad's hometown of Sycamore. Hoping to stop in for a tour on my next trip to Chicago. Nice variety of clubs across sill levels. I also now know of their commitment to great customer service and great value for the golf community. I've been frustrated by the big Mfr pricing on clubs that helps keeps golf out of reach for so many. Would love to give them a try and report back to the community and also see my index drop as the yardage goes up! Happy to make a quick run over for an in person fitting and or to watch the build. Cheers!
  3. Could use some help. Been playing TP5s for the last 2 years having switched from ProV1s. Found the TP5s to be 5-8 yds longer with very similar approach spin. Heard about the new 2020 Bridgestone balls and was eager to try. Tested the B RXS (green box) which is supposed to be the higher spinning of the slow swing balls. Hit it about a club longer than the TP5s but could not get any spin what so ever. Haven't done VFIT but the online questionnaire puts me in B RX (red box). Then this weekend, I pulled out a regular ProV1 and hit it great. Good distance and lots of spin. With that performance, should I be looking at the B XS for similar ProV1 performance?
  4. Two thoughts on your question. First, what's lacking at the top of the bag? When you said you played one-lengths, I was surprised to see the Ping Crossovers in the bag. I would have guessed hybrids. I've tried the Cobra one-length hybrids and was surprised to see how closely they matched the distances in my full length hybrids while being SUPER EASY to hit and control. Outside of one length, have also found the Ping G410 hybrids to be long and forgiving. and since adjustable you can really dial in the lofts to create good gapping. Suspect the yardage gaps between the two current crossovers are pretty close. Second on wedges, agree that the 58 might be a nice to have vs a need to have. The key for me in wedges is to be sure both of those high lofts have different bounce properties. One with high bounce and one with low. For me my 56 (bent to 55) is my mid bounce that is my go-to in sand. My 60 has very little bounce which is great off firm tight lies. I can also lay it open if I am short sided and really need to flop. I could easily have less bounce on the 56 and lay it off and more on the 60 then use it in sand. Hope that helps. Hit 'em straight
  5. Welcome and I concur on the challenge of friends that just don't get as excited about gear. Really like the looks of the driver and very cool headcover. Also good to see you are not afraid to mix mfrs in your bag. Keep it up. Find what works. Play your game. At the end of the day, it's not how, it's how many. Hit 'em straight!
  6. Might suggest the Ping G410 3 Hybrid with stock loft of 19*. It's adjustable +/- 1.5*. Depending on the course, you could dial it down to 17.5* (similar to current 5-wood) or up to 20.5 (close to a 4-iron). Also if the LZ 5.5 shafts are working well, I suspect you swing speed is better suited to the hybrid vs the 4-iron. Good luck!
  7. Stout set-up! Would love to see this set up in action. Anything on YouTube? Have a great season.
  8. How do you like the Forged Tec Irons? Would love to hit with the AMT whites. Also, staying in the Cobra fam, the F9 Driver is widely available online at $249. Great deal on a great stick.
  9. Jeff - Note Heaven (Iowa) 7.4 Nickent 17* and 20* The shots I hit with hybrids have to be completely predictable. 100% confidence is what I'm looking for to hit that mid launch penetrating shot. Had a Tour Edge gap wedge in the bag until my son stole it. Recall hitting hybrids in a sim a while back and found them very easy to hit and make great contact.

  11. Pretty good pricing right now on both Titleist and Ping woods. Both planned new models this fall. Understand Titleist is on track for that. Don't know about Ping. But would act pretty quick just in case for both.
