  1. Just a curious question. I always have had the common golf club brush- metal bristles on one side and a soft brush on the other. Upon going to buy a new one yesterday I saw an article about how you shouldn’t be using the metal brush on your irons. I always have thought metal brush for irons/wedges and soft brush for driver/woods. All my years I have used the metal brush before every iron shot, if the club needed it due to dirt on the face or dirt/sand/crud in the grooves. I personally have never noticed more then normal wear on the club face but after reading that particular article I can possibly be damaging my iron using the metal side of the brush. Anyone have any comment on if they use a metal brush on their irons? Have you damaged your irons from brushing? Etc
  2. Honestly its almost impossible to not have a fitter somewhere within an hour or two. Its worth the drive. You’re spending all this money to play better, spend the extra little bit to make them 110% suited to your swing. Its really worth it, find a fitter and get there.
  3. Yes they are the same shaft by the way, Modus 105 S
  4. Ok cool. Thanks I appreciate the response.
  5. That part I understand. My question is since my fitted adjusted lie angle on the CB1008 was 63.5 would I also be a 63.5 in the Mizuno?
  6. Whats up spies My question is, if I just bought a new set of irons- should my lie angle adjustment from the previous set be the same with the new set. Bought and played Miura CB 1008, they were not forgiving enough for me, so I took a step back and traded them in for Mizuno JPX 919 Forged. I was a lie angle 63.5 with the Miura CB 1008 7 iron, would I also be w 63.5 with the JPX irons? Thanks.
  7. I guess I should try the Mizuno’s on monitor and see if there is any difference. I agree. Apex and descent angle are very important to me. If I look back and compare my M4 irons to my Miura I did have more height with the M4’s and I’d imagine my descent angle was stronger too then.
  8. I also see Ricky that the CB1008 and Mizuno look fairly similiar with the thick bottom on the back of the head. Not sure theyre would be much difference. But the main difference I would imagine is the club on the Mizuno may not be so compact thus giving me a little bit larger of a sweet spot. Maybe that mis hit will travel 10yds further and more on line with the Mizuno vs the Miura.
  9. I do think I am past GI and SGI sets, I hit my irons pretty well and consistently and am starting to learn how to shape the ball. I don’t shape it very well yet but I am making progress. Thus the reason if anything I would take a step back and go into the player distance category either with Mizuno JPX 919 or try the Ping I500
  10. I did get fit and the fitter recommended P790 due to distances but I did not like the less spin it gave. So I sat for a while, waited, and due to where I live (Flushing, NYC) an asian friend of mine convinced me to buy Miura (only irons he plays). But being a big MGS follower, all their recent talk blades vs player distance just has this topic on my mind.
  11. I agree, I do enjoy them. Just all the MGS talk about never playing blades again has me thinking if I should back track from the Miura’s. In a sense yes I guess I was looking for an answer like yours lol I want to buy the Mizuno’s but as the same time like you said got to give my new clybs a chance.
  12. So with all the recent talk on MGS about blades vs player irons, has me thinking to shell out another 1000$ for their player distance winner JPX 919 Forged. I currently game Miura CB 1008, great clubs love them - when they are struck well. They are one of Miura’s most forgiving, but I doubt as forgiving as the Mizuno’s. I’m currently a 16hcp, only started playing spring 2018. I think thats pretty good for only a year of on course experience, so I went out and bought a set of Miura CB1008 thinking I swing my irons pretty consistent I can game these beautiful hand forged clubs. But if I look back to when I was gaming Taylormade M4’s I feel like I was much more consistent, got higher ball flights compared to the Miura irons. So do you guys think I should continue to game the Miura’s and keep working on them or should I just hang them up and gain some forgiveness with the Mizuno’s? Tough when I just spent 1800$ on these Miura irons. But I’m golf obsessed and buying clubs without thinking is part of Golf life lol
  13. Going for my first ever putter fitting today at Club Champ on the SAM Puttlab. Currently gaming an Evnroll 1.2, and love it. Just figured I play enough golf that I should go get a fitting and even see if the 1.2 is the right putter for me. My eye doesn’t suit a mallet so much, but I’m willing to sacrifice if the data shows that a mallet is better. I noticed with my 1.2 sometimes on takeaway my path gets screwed up and I was thinking this could be the light swingweight of the 1.2 being a D4. So maybe I can find a more stable putter but I really like the blade style putters. So I figured I would give the Toulon Atlanta and Portland a try, both giving somewhat of a blade look with some mallet design. Will also try some Scotty’s. Hope to find a putter that suits me better then my Evnroll 1.2- although I absolutely love the evnroll. Any opinions on these new 2019 putters I should try that you have liked?
