  1. I found a shorter length put me in more fairways. That's not scientific by any means but just by noting I hit the fairway on my scorecard. I tried several longer ( today's standard) shafts and I had no control. Not that I have that much now but it seemed to help me. And I did not loose distance that I could tell.

  2. I agree with PlaidJacket. I just returned from the range where I was hitting a 20 plus year old first flight driver. It goes about 210. Considering age of the test robot and declination in swing speed the club is just fine. Note. I use that small head to focus on strike since that driver head could fit inside my current driver and still have room to move around

  3. Nice. That's gives me an idea. I am moving. Perhaps I should place my 72 staff button backs around the house at strategic locations for the next home owner

    Fully agree. After progressives I took the glasses off to play. That only lasted one season. After I literally missed the ball on a few approach shots I put the glasses on . It took about three range sessions to realize exactly what you said. When the head and eyes stay put so does the ball.

    Now I can't play without the glasses.

  5. I currently use the Adams Red 22*. I still carry a 4i as well as the hybrid replaced my 5W. I may drop the 4i for another wedge. I enjoy the Adams Red. It's not the most used club in my bag, but does come in handy.

  6. I think you'll find that if you have 100 golfers, you'll get 100 different club selections for their bags. I'll just give you what I currently have in my bag, and what seems to work for me at the moment. Keep in mind that I'm prone to get angry at clubs that don't behave, and sometimes I don't even need an excuse to switch to something else, if the mood strikes, especially when it comes to long irons, et al.

     

    I carry at PING G400 3 hybrid (19 degrees) and a PING G400 4 crossover (22 degrees). I then start my irons with 5 through wedges. I was struggling with the 4 iron conundrum, which seems to be a popular conundrum amongst the MGS crowd here, and I was flirting with getting the 4 hybrid, when I started looking into the 4 crossover that PING offers.

     

    How is the crossover different from a regular 4 iron, or the hybrid? I'm so glad you asked. The crossover has a bigger head, but looks just like an iron, but it also has a graphite shaft that you'll find in hybrids and fairway woods. So I guess for me it was a compromise between getting the hybrid or continuing to play a 4 iron, which is hard to be consistent with.

     

    My results with the crossover are varied, but I would consider it better than an iron, but not as easy to hit as a hybrid. I've also noticed that the crossover, when I hit it solid, go just as far, if not further than the 3 hybrid, so distance control is kind of iffy with this club.

     

    Anyway, that's what I have, and am currently playing.

    Thanks. I had never seen a crossover club before. I will add that to the list.

  7. I'm considering replacing the 4 iron with a 4 hybrid after reading the data on the sight and realizing the 4i has been relegated to a punch from trouble.

     

    I am hoping someone might have personal experience with the clubs I am considering.

     

    Has anyone hit both the Adams Red and the Adams Blue?

     

    Beyond that. How about experiences with a replacement?

     

    Did the hybrid stay in the bag?

     

    Looking forward to feedback.

  8. First. A Nickent 3 hybrid. Bought new when they were hot on tour a loooong time ago.  It's my go to club

     

    Second.A Nickent Pipe PP-001 Putter.  Also purchased new way back in the day.  My chops are busted on a regular basis but 8 ft and in it's almost on autopilot.

     

    Third.  And the most Important. The sand wedge from my first set.  Hand me down Maxfi D26-MS blades from my father.  Maybe from the mid to late 60's.  The SW was retained by my Grandfather.  He didn't even pass it to my father.  (Kept it in the bag with his Staff Dynapowers).  I only received it on his passing.  Finally one year, I decided to flatten the face by hand, regrooved and repainted it and replaced the shaft and use it now.

    Awesome. Thanks

    I will take a look.

    Some of the reviews I see indicate the size of the watch is prohibitive and I am concerned is will be too small for my wrist. I emailed the company on the band circumference and am waiting for a reply
