  1. Thank you @MattF I had a great day and, more importantly, I have a birthday present on order: one Ping G425 hybrid custom order. But it’s only been on order for a couple of weeks so the middle of November is when I’m hoping to get it. Fingers crossed. Happy golfing everyone ️
  2. Sweet! Have fun playing with your new sticks
  3. Email? What email? I’ve not received anything and I’ve checked my spam folder too
  4. I’m still testing! I didn’t start until the survey was sent out so there’s not a lot of time I’m going back to the studio at my club today to try them both on GC Quad again. Then back on the course and complete my testing - hopefully! I’ve already lost one of each ball from my first foray onto the course with them. Wish me luck
  5. I can’t remember what questions are asked. Is your current shot shape not asked?
  6. Just need to say that in my first outing at my home club yesterday, I went out in 33 gross, 2 under par. My best ever on the front nine. Although the back nine was less impressive I still shot 73 for 3 over, my lowest score this summer. I love my new Mizunos
  7. I’m delighted, my Mizuno custom fit order (UK order) has arrived after only three weeks. I guess I must have been lucky with the components I’ve chosen They are Mizuno MP20 HMB 4 & 5 irons and MP20 MMC 6 iron to PW. With KBS C Taper Lite 110 Stiff shafts one inch longer than standard with Lamkin ST+2 Hybrid midsize grips +4 tapes. Standard lie but lofts 2 degrees weaker than standard (making the 7 iron 34 degrees). The excitement Mizuno Swing DNA gadget did recommend the C Taper Lite X Stiff, but as I’m getting older I tried the stiff against the x stiff and couldn’t tell the difference, so went with the “softer” shaft hoping it’ll last me a few more years into my senior golfing. Fingers crossed, all seems good so far. I’ve just had my first game with them and loved them and the course - one of my favourite courses in the UK - Woodhall Spa, the Hotchkin course. Looking forward to many more games to come
  8. It looks a wonderful experience. One that I hope to experience one day
  9. That’s excellent news. How was it?
  10. Making sure that your phone is facing microphone up in your lead pocket should be your first port of call in my opinion. And if that fails, try cleaning the microphone port on your phone. And re-pairing the sensors will not do any harm but has seldom been the fix in my 80+ rebounds with Arccos. If you’re still having problems an external mic is a cheap way to try to alleviate missed shots. Just a short lightning lapel clip mic clipped to your pocket/belt loop. I’ve not tried this. And finally, Arccos support are fantastic. Drop them an email at starter@arccosgolf.com and they are quick to reply. Best of luck. I love Arccos!
  11. Good choice. I knew when I ordered them that I’d be in for a wait and hope that you were too. The good news is that, at the end of the day, we’ll have a brand new set of Mizunos one day soon(ish)
  12. I’m not looking for increased distance, but I’m getting it, by about one club. So the main purpose of the 2 degrees weak is to try to reign in the distance a bit. With the added bonus of more bounce, less offset and hopefully some added spin.
  13. After 12 years of my current set (Ping S57’s) I’ve finally taken the plunge and ordered a new set of custom fit Mizuno irons. After a few sessions, which involved taking a couple of different options out onto the course, I’ve placed my order for a set - 4 to PW of Mizuno MP20 irons. I’ve gone for a combo set with MP20 HMB 4 & 5 irons and MP20 MMC in the 6 to PW. KBS C Taper Lite stiff shafts, 1” longer than standard, bent 2 degrees upright and 2 degrees weaker than standard. It’s taken a few fittings to get to this final spec and I want to thank my local pro for being (very) patient with me and my plethora of questions. So. The order is in. Now I’ve just go to wait 4 to 8 weeks (maybe) for them to arrive
  14. Hi, thanks for your reply I’m in England, I don’t think Sub70 have distribution here atm I’ve been waiting for Ping to release the i210 replacement for about the last year. And I’d given up waiting. But the recent pictures of the i59 in Viktor Hovland’s bag did pique my interest I am in two minds whether to wait or not. I do have a bag that’s pretty full of Ping (12 of 14 clubs)
  15. Thanks Shapotomous I like the look of the JPX 921 Forged. As I too have a toe miss, I’ll add those to the list
  16. Glad to hear that Big Stu. I, and I’m sure plenty on here, would love to see some pictures of those and hear how they go.
  17. I’m currently going through the bag and all 14 clubs are being considered Starting with the irons, I currently have Ping S57s in the bag 4 - PW. The list of possible replacements atm reads: Muzuno MP20 HMB Srixon ZX7 Callaway Apex/Apex Pro Taylormade TP770 Ping i210 I am in my mid 50s, 5 handicap, and am looking for a players profile club with more forgiveness than my current gamers. Not particularly worried about more distance or workability. The S57s have been in the bag since they came out, so about 12 years. I’m hoping that what I choose now will have a similarly long time in the bag. Are there any clubs I’ve missed off the list that I really should be considering? Thanks
  18. Thanks jaskanski, I don’t know how I missed that, that’s good to know. Have you used them?
  19. Hi, even though the UK is in lockdown again () so no golf, I’m getting excited because I’m on the hunt for some new clubs in the near future. The full set - except, maybe, the putter. I’ve kept my current clubs for about 10 years and hope to get the same longevity out of the new set. So while it’s not money no object, I am willing to travel and pay (if needs be) for a quality custom fit. If it’s within a few hours travelling of me in North Lincolnshire that would be a bonus. But I may be prepared to go further afield, within England, for the right fitter. Has anyone got any recommendations? I’ve searched online but am not entirely convinced. I would like to have the choice of as many brands as possible, having been to Ping before and had custom irons and wedges from them. Not to say that I’m unhappy with Ping and they could still be my choice, but I want to go to someone who is not tied to one brand. Any recommendations please?
  20. So, today I got an email from the pro at my club - winter studio memberships available. That’s the indoor GC Quad launch monitor/simulator to you and me. On the one hand, great, thinks I. I’m going to do that and work on my game. Rapidly followed by: shute, does that mean the season is nearly over? Again! Oh well. I’ll keep working at it and maybe NEXT year I’ll get my handicap down... Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  21. Hi, I matched the shaft exactly for the TrueFit. I got the distance increase (sometimes) that TrueFit advised. But I wasn’t accurate with it. Less accurate than my old Ping driver in fact. That’s why I decided to experiment with the Tensei Orange at 10g lighter than the recommended Tensei Blue. And it hasn’t worked. I’m still inaccurate with it no matter where I put the weights and with either shaft Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  22. Interesting [emoji848] Thank you 2 Questions: Was it purely an “anti-hook” measure for you? And by “the random low 80’s round has not happened” I presume that means that you shoot in the 70’s or better all the time now I have a spare 6 iron for my set - the result of an unseen stone in a fairway bunker. I think it’s time for a JumboMax grip on that one, and see how that goes. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  23. I wasn’t sure about the shaft and at a past fitting (for hybrids) a lighter shaft was the way to go (65g for the hybrid) So, as I used to have a 55g shaft in my Ping, I’ve got a 50g Tensei Orange Stiff in it to try. One round in and I’m optimistic. I really must get to the driving range and on a launch monitor though [emoji849] Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  24. Just a quick update [emoji3] Golf is back on the menu in England but with no practice area and social distancing. So that means that I’ve been able to get 5 rounds in but no practice. So I’ve probably hit my new toy about 40 times. I haven’t been able to get on a launch monitor, so have set up the driver lie angle, loft and moveable weights to my “best guess” And it seems to be working, more or less. I’ve gained distance - according to Arccos. Up from 252 yards smart distance with my Ping G series driver (which was fitted by my club pro when it came out in 2016) to 274 yards with the Mizuno ST190G. It’s early days but I’m enjoying hitting it and it seems to fit - so [emoji1360] truegolffit so far! I’ll post again when I’ve got more games under my belt and have hopefully been able to get on the launch monitor [emoji3] Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
