  1. Steve, Las Vegas, NV Handicap is 7.5 Current irons are Titleist AP1 714 7 iron carry is 145 Thanks for opportunity! Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  2. Wish I could have EVER hit a 7 iron 170! With the newer stronger lofts I can get closer (cuz I’m really hitting a 5 iron, ) to that number. Today the number stamped on the bottom is pretty meaningless. Nowadays instead of asking “whadya hit”, I ask “What distance did you play that at?” New T100 7 iron is 34*, T300 is *29. In my day that was nearly 2 club difference!
  3. All 3 felt nice. While the 300 is supposed to be a GI iron, it seemed to have a bit thinner top line and sole than my AP1, as well as a more compact head. Seemed to be more forgiving, but didn’t have the huge head of some GI irons. I was difficult for me to distinguish between the 300 and 200 in terms of look at address and feel through the swing. 300 performed a bit better for my swing. The 100 looks great, but I don’t have the skill to make it perform
  4. Just tested T200 and 300. The 300 definitely has their “Max Impact” polymer rebound point nearer center/toe. Toe hits seemed to still perform pretty well
  5. Had my fitting today with new T series irons. Currently play AP1 714. The 100, 200, and 300 all look great to me. As it was explained to me, this series does not translate to the AP series. It is blending existing tech with new, so can’t say the T200 is old AP1, etc. My take on the line up is the 100 is a players iron with distance and workability and my ability is not up to the task. Hit about 50 200 and 300 7 irons with Aerotech i95 stiff shafts. The lofts are stronger by a full club over my AP1 714 Overall look across the line are thinner and more compact and are very pleasing to my eye. Numbers: Swing speed about 80, Ball speed about 115 Below are averages after tossing out 2 best, and 2 worst Current AP1 6 iron 29*(12 shots) Avg Carry. 162 Avg Spin. 5997 Launch 16* Off line avg 7.4 New T200 7 iron 30*(17 shots) Avg Carry 163 Avg Spin 6042 Launch 16.7 Off line avg 8.8 New T300 7 iron 29*(19 shots) Avg Carry 164.5 Avg Spin 6223 Launch 16.5 Offline 6.7 I basically came up with I can now hit a 7 iron the same as my 6 iron( since same loft) maybe a few yds more, maybe a bit more forgiving, and a bit more stopping power It is not enough to warrant a change for me, but they look good, feel good, and are certainly worth a look

  8. Going for a full on fitting with Titleist on Friday for new T series. Have Played Titleist for most of last 45 years( including Acushnet Finalist!). Currently play AP1 714 so will be interesting how the new tech might work out. Will post my opinions after the fittings

  10. Same age as you. Have severe arthritis in hands. Could not complete a round due to hand pain. Went for a fitting 5 years ago and hit a lot of shafts. Clear winner was Aerotech Steelfibres i95 in stiff. Gave me the reduced vibration I needed with the feel of steel. Can play now without hand pain, accuracy is much improved and index is half of what it was. My SS for 6 iron is upper 80s. Will play these shafts as long as they are made
  11. Have always played a “buttercup fade”. Nicklaus hit a fade. Grew up watching Nicklaus
  12. Been playing for 51 years. Have witnessed 7 holes-in-one, and 2 albatrosses. Have personally had zero of both!
  13. Steve/ Las Vegas 6.5 index Volkey SM5 Lower flighted “Hop and Stop”
  14. Play GP Tour Wrap 2G Jumbo +2 for about 2 years. Real help on arthritic hands, less grip pressure, less pain, better play, less shock. Best equipment choice I’ve made in 50 years of playing. Hands measure 8.75 and 4.25
  15. I feel your pain. Many places have “big and tall” but really should be just “big”. Pants start at 44 waist and stop at 32” inseam. I need 42” waist and 36” inseam. Need 12” inseam on shorts—not made, Shirts never long enough to tuck. Not many XLT options. UA has some tall sizes and their regular sizes are a bit longer. Would really like to find pants/ shirts long enough under $100, but seems like a pipe dream 6’8” 250 not a golfer bod I guess
