  1. Actually the reviews of the Launcher HBs on this forum were very influential in my purchase of them the end of last season. The reviews were very detailed and subsequent feedback I got after the purchase was very helpful.
  2. Les from New Jersey. Currently use Sun Mountain 3/4 sleeve rain jacket. No rain pants, put on too much weight for the ones I had. Got caught in a summer storm a few years ago furthest point from the clubhouse. Thunder, lightning and torrential downpour. Had to hide in an extremely dense forest area to avoid the lightning. Didn't have rain gear with me, that will never happen again.
  3. Played 9 yesterday close to 40* and windy. If straight is your primary goal, these are your irons. Took me a while to get used to the face alignment, but other than that they were a good choice for me.
  4. Sitting here waiting for the first monster storm of 2019 to hit the NE. November, most of December and all of January have either been extremely wet or cold. Was just getting really used to the HB Launchers in the few nice days we had in December. Waiting for some warm 35+* weather. They do have wide bottoms but are definitely not hybrids. Although not the longest irons out there they do what I wanted, very forgiving eliminating many of the thins and the fats.
  5. Played last week during a warm but very wet day. Have to pay attention to clubface to make sure it is square not open. Conditions were poor but iron play is improving. Unfortunately, I am watching the snow fall with almost 3 inches down already. Don't know when I will be able to play. Monitoring of the irons will be on hold for now.
  6. Finally had some decent weather today and played in an outing. Was very impressed with the HBs. Slight misses only lost marginal distance or were off line minimally. They are very forgiving and solid feeling. It seems that the problems I was having with them early on was what appeared to be a square clubface to me actually wasn't. I have never been a fan of hybrids and don't consider these a set of hybrid irons. They do have wide bottoms but they are and play like irons not hybrids. All in all I feel a lot better about my recent purchase and will provide a more detailed update after another round.
  7. Gonna give it a few more rounds, weather permitting. Hit some really nice shots yesterday. If it continues, I will adjust 1 club. Good advice, thanks.
  8. I have been able to get 2 more rounds in and am starting to see improvement. The trajectory and distance are good. My only issue at this time is the line is off to the right. My miss with my prior set was a pull or a hook. It will take some more time to get used to the HBs, if no improvement I might need to have the lie angles checked and possibly altered.
  9. Semi-fit from same rep at two different demo days. Only modification from standard was + 1/2" in length. It made sense to me since prior set was 1* upright. Hit the range yesterday, I'm awesome off of mats. I will keep updating my progress even though the temperature has dropped to the 40s and low 50s.
  10. Took them out yesterday for their maiden run. Will take some getting use to. Ground was still very soft and a lot of bare spots in fairways. Didn't play well in general, operator error not the tools used. Started hitting them better towards end of round. Will post update after some range time and another round.
  11. Finally got my HBs today 5 to pw. They get their initial trial tomorrow am.
  12. It's is almost 3 weeks since my pro ordered the Launcher HBs. 4-pw was ordered with the understanding that if I didn't want the 4 iron no problem the pro shop will keep with rental clubs. Its pouring rain outside and the temperature is dropping in NJ. Hope they arrive before it really gets cold. Just wanted to keep the thread alive and promise to update once they arrive and I get a chance to use them.
