  1. Sorry. I have to disagree. A friend referred me to this practice club when I was an 18+ on the Golf Channel AM Tour. Sneed Flight out of Los Angeles. My friend had me try it .., very fustrating the 1st few times. But I focused on my technique & keeping my head still. Started hitting this PSP 7 iron exactly straight & to the pin where my own 7 iron was landing. Sweet. My friend is a scratch player - he told me this club turned his game around. I was playing Ping Eye2 at the time - maybe 7 years ago. Today , my SCGA index is 10.0 - I play either my Miura blades or my Titleist 681 blades. Shot my 1st even par round last week. I am a believer !!!
  2. I like mine. Not aftermarket finish, either.
  3. My 7 iron is standard loft of 36° . Typical loft before mfgrs started decreasing loft to be able to claim their irons go farther. Vanishing loft disease. Miura Limited Edition blades. App. 2005 year. PW is 48°. I only carry PW, 53° & 58° wedges. Seems like newer irons with jacked up lofts to cater to egos ... need a gap wedge to fill the gap between PW & SW. Or (2) gap wedges.

  4. Ok. Love my forged blades. Hit'em in the center & work'em both ways. ;8) Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  5. Scratch 16° Don White 1 iron. On windy days to replace 3 wood. 220 carry ( I am old - that's all I got). Other than that - 60° Mizuno wedge with 5° bounce - which I shaved down. For sand traps w/o sand ... Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  6. I was fit & game an ER2. Went from (app.) 38+ putts a round on average ... just shot my 1st round in the 70's ... a 79. 32 putts, (1) 3 putt & (5) 1 putts. The only change I made to my ER2 was a lighter grip. Distance is now dialed in. Works for me. Best $350 I ever spent. Just wish the head was black or grey. Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  7. Wow. Seems most on this blog bought into the marketing speel. I have to admit I replaced my 3 iron with a 5 Wood. Hitting a 4 iron & holding the green is easy enough. But I carry a modern 2 iron for wind ... still play Titleist 681's or my Miura 'retro' blades - 4i thru pw. Always Miura wedges though ... 53 & 58. Swap a 60 - 5° bounce wedge vs 3 wood depending on course conditions. Something sweet about USA or Japanese forged irons ... compared to the modern Chinese castings. Just ugly castings ... thick topline. Wide soles. Lofts jacked up. To feed egos ... wow ... I hit my 7 iron 200 yards ... kind of thing. What is next ? PW of 40 degrees ???

  8. 1st time breaking 80. Index was 15.8 as I changed grip & clubs in January. Wonder what my index will be now ? All about chipping & putting. Loving my EV2 putter, Miura irons/wedges & my Titleist driver & 5 Wood. Of curse ... this cannot continue. Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  9. Seems to me that the launch monitor you are being checked on is off. At that swing speed ... 93-95 mph ... 230 yard 3 wood ? Maybe you live in high elevation ... Just saying ... Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  10. FWIW - I game an EV2 but was coming up short on occasion. So I changed the grip (lighter) & now my distance control is spot on. Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  11. I play a 18° long iron because it is easier to hit it straight VS a hybrid. For me. 5 Wood if I need to hold the green. Both go the same distance. Into the wind ... choice is obvious. Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  12. PGA/USGA tournament setup class sets them 5' outside a bunker - handle parallel to fairway pointing in direction of green. Muni's do whatever. Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  13. FWIW - My index is the same over many years ... Ping Eye2 irons ... Titleist 680 blades ... 681 blades & now Miura blades. It's the Archer - not the arrow. I just prefer to work my shots & know if I pured the shot. Blades let ME know ... cavity backs do not. I did not list the many cavity backs I have played ... lack of bandwidth.

  14. Try this 2 iron. Miura ICL-601. My current gamer. Also the Titleist U series play easy too. Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  15. OMG. It's all just marketing buzz. The USGA has limited virtually everything distance related. So the brain dead just go with whatever their fav pro plays ... as if the pros play the same Chinese pot metal we get to purchase. NOT. Accuracy is the final frontier but the majority is distance focused. Personally I spend most of my golf related money on fittings, Flightscope sessions & Gears ... Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  16. Wow. I would have thought there would be continuing comments on this thread. I still play my Titleist 913 ... as nothing seems significently better. Which confirms my take ... it's the shaft ... I will go new when the face collapses. Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  17. The grooves in my Ev2 work as claimed. I have seen one LPGA player are Aviara in 2017 using this putter. Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  18. What was the loft of that 7 iron ? Mine is 36°. Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  19. I went backwards in time on my irons to Titleist 681's. I just like the feel ... but they have the perfect shafts for my convoluted swing. Love Ping Eye 2's as well but they are so fugly at address ... but what backspin they put on the ball. Tried the PXG's ... nice but no improvement on distance or direction compared to my old 681's. Still searching though ... for the Holy Grail of irons. I'll try all of them ... Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  20. Titleist clubs work fine for me. Get fitted with the proper shafts ... brand name on the clubhead will not matter. I have hit about every brand (looking for something better) but always go back to my fitted Titleist or my fitted Scratch clubs. Maybe it is a mental block ... thinking one brand is superior to another. Or maybe just the look at address turns people off. Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  21. I got fit for an EV2 & it was about starting the ball on line. Loft was fit to be 0.5°. Really not a # I was expecting. Speed control can be dialed in. My Scotty's are in the garage ... all at 4° loft. So get fit ... you might be as surprised as I was.
  22. OMG. I just did a Internet search on this very phrase. No wonder why so many people cannot play this game. There is no consensus on this most basic subject. Rekklss
  23. Sorry man. All of us feel your pain. Dogs are something special in our lives. When the tears come - go to a happy place where your dog was with you. Remember the good times.
  24. Hmm. Pix did not post. Titleist 12° 913 - Diamana white x. Titleist 910F 15° - Diamana white x. Titleist 712U - 2 iron, Titleist 3& 4 with Tru Temper XP s shafts. Titleist 5-PW 681 Blades on KBS Tour C-TAPER s. Miura 53 & 58- KBS Hi-Rev 2.0 S. Evnroll EV2 putter. All fitted. All sweet. Bag could be lighter.
  25. Change the bag, maybe. When the driver/3 wood face collapses ... change heads. Shafts are all perfectly fit.
