  1. Thanks, that makes sense logically. I just need to get comfortable enough to pull the trigger on the set in order to test all of the clubs for gapping purposes (the TrueSpec fitting was using 6i heads only). This last comment is probably best suited for a different thread, but thought I would throw it out there for anyone who is on the fence for a fitting - what was even more eye-opening than the modern club heads was how comically bad my current shafts are for my game. Wish I got a fitting 3 years ago when I bought the last set!
  2. Agree these look awesome. Can anyone comment on the durability of these? If they can hold up like a hoofer it seems like a no brainer. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  3. I had my first full fitting yesterday and my dispersion data was actually best on the Cobra Forged Tecs and then the 790s, with the more blade-like irons pacing well behind, which is just one more story confirming your point. Had I not been reading this and other threads on mgs the last few months I would’ve been less open to these new types of clubs. One thing that makes me a little bit nervous though is the loft gaps that go from 2 degrees in the strong irons to 5 degrees in the 8-w. What are your thoughts on that chisag?

  4. You've got me THIS close to pulling the trigger on a set of these! Very curious to see your stage 2 comments on the misses since my handicap aligns with yours and I'd imagine the "misses" percentage is close too.
  5. Wondering what spies use for colder weather golf vests when you want to keep your arms free. I have always worn long sleeves and/or jackets, but looking to make a switch and it seems a little tougher than I thought it would be to find the right weight/warmth/material/price combo.
  6. From a fellow Sox fan transplanted to San Diego (via MA about 7 yrs ago and never leaving if I can help it), nice intro! I highly recommend Barona Creek btw, especially now that its cooling off out there. Not sure if they still have this deal but in past years if you tee off post- 11:00 which is their winter-time "twilight" the greens fee drops substantially (I think like $80 vs $160). Very interesting layout with some elevation changes and possibly the best greens that are open to the public in San Diego (outside of Torrey around tournament times of course). I've never seen it too crowded either, so you can get through in 4 hrs easily.
  7. I took your advise and emailed them. Looks like "black versions of the HI are not in our plans at this time" Oh well
  8. Any idea if the HI will eventually come in black like the irons? Would make for one hell of a combo set...
  9. How does the length measure from heel to toe on these compared to the other irons you guys use? Assume this is a compact head in every way, as opposed to some of the players' distance irons that have a thin top line but are really long from heel to toe?
  10. Got it, thanks guys! I had been skipping right to the last page looking for new posts rather than down page 1. I am most curious to see how these rate on forgiveness and wear&tear. But I have a fitting next month for new irons and these are sure to be in the mix, especially at such a competitive price point.
  11. Newb question, but where can we find it? Also, what does "stage 2 reserved" mean - just that it has been sent into MGS for review? I keep checking this thread daily, love the start so far and can't get enough content on these bad boys!
  12. Like the black irons - curious to see the Ft Worths in action soon.
  13. Interesting one! I just got a new driver (experimented with a few different shaft options but was not fit for it) and it isn't performing up to my old one's standards up til now (still early), so I'm curious about the potential results here.

    Wedges sold, price drop on F6
  15. Agree here. Or if the hosel was clean and the back just said Titleist. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  16. I probably go through that in 30 minutes and know I am working too fast. 15 mins is insane! Is the general rule of thumb to go through a full shot routine on every swing? Not sure I can fit that into my lunch break! Guess I could hit a smaller bucket more meaningfully...
  17. This has already been covered, but I just want to echo that this is a fantastic post and I couldn't agree more. I am pretty new here but chisag seems like one of the most informative, thoughtful posters on here. I finally signed up for an iron fitting after wasting god knows how much buying and selling random clubs over the years. Can't wait to see the outcome - seems like as a mid- single digit capper, the whole club universe might be a fit for my game.

    Price drop, open to offers. Want to get rid of these!
  19. Pingman corded. I've messed with a bunch of others but kept coming back to this one. Slightly bigger than the pistol Scotty grips but not as big or squishy as SS, and the cord helps my sweaty hands feel secure with the putting stroke. And it's like $6! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  20. Best part of my game, probably in line with the chart in the previous post, and feel like it's going in every time, especially if it's a big money putt. Sadly, a similar percentage to my pull hook chances with the long irons... Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  21. I know this is delayed but I game the iE1s and just demoed both the i210 (7i with stock DG 120 stiff) and i500 (7i with stock AWT 2.0 stiff). Curious to hear your thoughts as well if you've tried them out by now. i210 Feel - I thought the i210 felt pretty close to the iE1s - closer than I expected actually. Now, the 210s did feel better, but the difference wasn't eye-popping Distance - I was carrying the 7i about 2-3 yards further than the iE1, around 166-169 vs my normal 164-166. Ball flight - A touch higher than my gamers, but also not something where I would've noticed if I wasn't paying close attention to it Look - The top line looks noticeably thinner, and coloration is for sure better - would think the clatter issue that iE1s have might be fixed. They look fantastic. i500 Feel - Felt better than the 210s on the flushed shots, slightly worse on thin/toe strikes but nothing like pure blades that I have tried before. As a ~6 handicap I would feel plenty confident in the ball striking of these (I do not feel comfortable with traditional blades). I also didn't notice any tin-sounds that I had read about, which was nice Distance - Carried about 10 yards further than my iE1. I'd be curious how much of that effect is due to loft vs. a hotter face. The iE1 7i is 32*, vs 30.5* in the i500 Ball flight - Substantially higher than either the iE1 or 210 - this part was what made me less comfortable especially given the lower loft of the i500. I was using the stock AWT stiff shaft, so I would be curious to check out a shaft with a lower flight like the DG s300 or x100, and would also want to mess with lofts at a fitting. I could definitely see this being an issue for some golfers so if you are an off the shelf buyer, beware. Look - maybe the best looking iron I've seen. Lordy. Compact head, sleek back side, soles were thinner than the i210 but not as thin as a typical blade. In love. All in all, I would probably go lower with the 210s if I gamed them today because they are an improvement on, but similar to the iE1. I am far more intrigued about the possibility of dialing in a set of i500s though, if only to get to look at them every time I see my golf bag. #itmoved. Now I'll go back to praying I get selected as a tester
  22. I personally have been really impressed with Snell, both red and black, relative to my previous gamers e6, Nxt tour s, & Project a (performance) and ProV (price). I'll be sticking to the MTB Red for now, unless I win the test contest for the i500s and need a lower ball flight . The MTB black seems to fit a "mid-spin" profile though, at least for my game. Also Dean Snell signed my receipt on my first order from them, which I thought was a nice touch. I can't speak to the Cut & Vice brands, but would rather give those smaller independent outfits a shot before buying refurbished (I've had inconsistent experiences here at best) or Kirkland.

    Cobra F6 3-4 wood with Fujikura Pro 65 S shaft (the stock shaft for the F7), standard length. Bought new & used for one year before unnecessarily buying an F7 at a tent sale a few weeks ago. $85 $80 $75 shipped SOLD Set of 2 Vokey SM5 chrome wedges, 54* & 60*, both M grind, stock shaft & lie. Bought new in summer 2016. 54* is in great shape still, 60* was the bunker club so is a bit more worn but still plenty of life left. SOLD
  24. Update - loving the glide wedges, and in this case it was shockingly not the arrows' fault. I think with irons, woods or putters in the past I have only become intrigued after seeing an immediate positive reaction when first hitting a new club (similar to Will_Mac), but in this case it was just love at first sight combined with a pretty worn out sand wedge.
  25. It seems like X flex is as trendy as "power spec" iron lofts. As a number of posters identified, so many variables go into the right shaft selection. In the more seasoned fitters/equipment junkies opinions, how much of the trend is marketing mumbo jumbo vs newer technology advances that make X flex appropriate for a growing group of people?
