  1. From my experience this rating scale is fairly accurate. And it can assist you in finding some gems that you wouldn't otherwise look at. Example being, I bought a set of Powerbilt TPS irons that were rate in the 900s. They are some of the sweetest, easiest to hit clubs I have ever used. My wife's Callaway Big Bertha circa 2004 irons are rated slightly higher and they are slightly easier and sweeter than the Powerbilt to me. My personal clubs, Ping Zings are great, but aren't as easy to hit, hence the lower rating which is in the high 700s. As someone had mentioned before about Maltby clubs being rated the highest, I think he may have designed his clubs according to this equation that yields more forgiving clubs which I would imagine many manufacturers would attempt to achieve I'm some fashion. So it makes sense to me. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  2. I have since changed my ball position to line up with my left heel for all clubs. I was playing around with my ball position and tried this. Amazing iron shots, the best I have ever hit. Sent from my moto g(7) using Tapatalk
  3. I agree that they aren't magic, but I also believe that it is mostly marketing. When I go to the golf shop, I try out all of the putters usually, the cheap and the expensive. I don't see much of a difference in performance. Looks - yes. Feel - sometimes. But performance - not at all. There is a difference in style of putter that seems to matter. Visual things matter in my putting performance. But cost of the putter seems irrelevant. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  4. I have been trying blades for the last month. I have been able to hit them well. But, I just don't see how they are better performance wise or feel. But, I do like the way forged blades look. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  5. Love this putter. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  6. I think for me, I continue to use my putter because it is what I'm used to and I feel comfortable with it. That's probably why using anything else doesn't appeal to me, because it's all about look and feel. Putting is the best, most consistent part of my game. So changing putters doesn't make sense to me. And because my putter won't wear out like irons or a driver, I will most likely have my putter until I leave this earth. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. I have an old Ping putter that I use that I won't swap for anything new. I like the looks, feel, roll and I know how I perform with it. Putting is the best part of my game. I will not mess with it at all! Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  8. For some reason I have started to use the overlap grip and it is starting to feel comfortable. May start using that for a while, Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  9. Now that would feel weird for me. And how would that impact my shot? Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  10. I've never heard of that. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  11. 10 finger grip it is for me. It feels the most comfortable and powerful at this time. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  12. I'm still struggling with trying to figure out what grip I want to use. I am leaning toward the 10 finger grip. But I still don't know. I need a few more sessions on the range. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  13. I do understand and it is very frustrating. My suggestion to you; if you are happy with your swinging motion and it feels good to you, play the clubs you hit best with that swinging motion. If you need to work on things then go with the professional fitting and work on your swing. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  14. Lie angles are tricky things. I was fitted for a green dot plus a half inch in length. Then I was fitted for a white dot. I retooled my swing because it was too upright and I was coming over the top. Now my swing is much flatter and the clubs I use now after much trial and error are black dot with standard length shafts. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  15. Could your swing have adjusted over time to accommodate the flatter clubs? When they for you they take in consideration your height, wrist to floor, and the size of your hands. Over time, you may adjust to the more upright irons and may hit the ball a lot better. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
