  1. I've played SM4, then SM8 and have clearly seen better performance from the 8's. Will give the 9's a tke 9's a test drive, but also thinking of trying out the Mizuno's. Any other that would be worth comparing?
  2. Given your set makeup, seems very sensible to me....3W add's versatility to the bag. I think a lot also depends on the length you need off the tee. Shorter approaches means more GIR's and better changes for lower scores. I see this w my game. Even when I'm offline w driver, if I have a look at the green being closer has given me more GIR's, than laying back in the fairway w a longer approach shot. If 3W gets me inside 100 yards off the tee I'll do it, otherwise I pull the big stick. I think its all about confidence in what your hitting and personal preference on how you want to approach a given hole.
  3. Soooooo many great irons on the market now! Anyone in the market in 2022 will have so many options to choose from!! Dizzy yet?!?!?!
  4. Wow! Lots of passionate views on this topic. Looks like Adam knows how get people fired up! Does anyone really know what he actually has in mind for a "free" fitting?
  5. CB-301 would seem more of a direct comparison, assuming you're looking for a cavity with somewhat traditional look/feel. Either brand will be good quality i'm sure. Have fun figuring it out.
  6. Taylor made for me all day long. From burner to sim, just seems launch and shape just seem to always feel the best for me. Completely a personal preference, but would say sound and feel play a big part in it. Everyone should love their fairway clubs and never think twice about pulling them.
  7. I went w the 921’s with the $taper 120’s. Now I have to decide what to do with the shafts in my 54 x100 and 58 s400 sm8’s. Won’t change those until the spring but thinking to go a bit lighter and softer.
  8. No question about it. Would play my titleist 990’s any day! Happy turkey day!
  9. 3W is my favorite club to hit! Up until a few years ago I had two 3W's (12 and 15 degree). Now I just have 15 degree to add a wedge. Use it on shorter par 4's, or navigating dog legs/bunkers to avoid trouble. Use it more from the tee, than fairway. To shoot for green on par 5 has to be clear path to the green w limited trouble or I lay up to wedge zone. MUST stay in the bag!
  10. Thanks RB! Nice little doc you found there.
  11. Footwear is important and for me, I need to feel connected to the ground when I'd in my downswing. I go spike every time. Current shoes are best ever: Adidas boost!
  12. All selections based on fitting #'s and my feel. Driver: Hzrdus Smoke Fairway/Hybrid: Ventus Blue Irons: $-Taper Wedges: Dynamic Gold
  13. I recently tried P7MC and Jpx921 Tour, both with $taper. About 1000 revs less with P7MC resulting in meaningful distance differences from shot to shot. For me, Jpx921 tight on distance w better spin/distance control.
  14. Every chance I get!! Always amazing to me how many able bodied people ride. Frankly, really sad. On a separate but related note, what's come of the caddie? Even at private clubs, many offering policy to use push carts. Again, really sad.
  15. Anyone switch to the a black finish shaft after playing chrome their whole life. What did you think? Good choice or regret? Why? I'm looking at KMS and thinking about PVD Black in $taper.
  16. Thanks Larry...been playing Pro V1 or Pro V1x for years, playing with marginal changes in spin. If I'm playing a match I pull out the Pro V1.
  17. 223's look a heck of a lot like the JPX line!
  18. It’s not a visual thing. Introduce a bit of wind and the ball either balloons if into the wind or drifts on the wind if side wind. Just feels like if I could bring the launch and spin down a slight bit I’d have better performance when conditions are not optimal. Not looking for big change here just trying to tweak flight on stock shots. Probably most noticeable with 8-pw. thanks!
  19. Looking for suggestions on options to lower ball flight. I'm looking to tinker with my backup set - Titleist 990's with S300. Great irons, but they launch just a little too high and w plenty of spin. Looking for lower, more controlled ball flight. Club speed ~88-89, ball speed ~121. Heads are already bent 2* strong, so need to look at shaft options. Any thoughts?
