  1. Nice article. I've been looking forward to this release for a few months. Currently playing z585 5-6 and z785 7-pw, but have been thinking of replacing my 5 iron with something a little more forgiving. G710 had my interests. I have demoed the Cleveland UHX 5 utillity several times and have been really impressed. But I can't wait to try the ZX4. Bend the 5 iron 1 degree weak and kill some offset and match the loft to the ZX5 and it could be a sneaky good club. 5 iron top line:
  2. Steelfiber but in S flex. It gets a good amount of use on the tour, but almost everyone is playing stiff and not x.
  3. Setting up with the driver on the ground and aligning the ball slightly toe side has done wonders for me. Looks like it could help you as well if you are already setting up in the middle or heel side.
  4. Been a while since I had a FW in the bag. Just picked up a Cobra F6 Baffler 4/5 wood, that will get a fair shot. Otherwise I might look at the 425 5 wood and maybe the Mizuno after the TXG review.
  5. I would look to swap it for the 3 iron, as long as you find the utility more forgiving than the 3 iron.
  6. I think PING really does not care. They have a long history of making fugly clubs that perform. Turbulators were not well received on any product line, but they kept making them because they added something to the performance. And it seems like G400/G410 sells were pretty good. And now, they are sort of the expectation. After initially not liking the way they look myself, I dont even notice on my 410 driver anymore. And when I demoed the 425 hybrids and 5 wood it almost seemed like something was off. They didnt look like PING clubs at address. But they are onto something in this line. 425
  7. I have been hunting for a 5 iron replacement and just demo'd the UHX 5/23 utility on a monitor for 20 minutes or so. I believe the UHX iron and utility are the same length, but the utility swingweight's at D4 versus D2 for the iron. It was just a grip cap longer than the ZX5 5 iron in total length. Very easy to launch. I am a fan of the recoil shaft. I've used that on other utilities before. Honestly reminded me very much of the U85, but even more forgiving. And it's 3/4 shorter than the comparably lofted 4 utility from Srixon, which really helped me find the center more. I had been pla
  8. Could be easier to demo the Cobra Tour Length drivers. 44.5 inches. 18g and 6 gram weight, so you can swap the 6 for another 12 or 18 if you really want to add weight. And added head weight makes the shaft player weaker.
  9. For my money, I'd go with the older versions. Those were sneaky good utilities. You'll lose some ball speed and distance with the shorter shaft (the OL hybrid will help retain some speed), but if you want something that is easy to hit and will roll out quite a bit, I can't think of anything better.
  10. Still gaming 2 2016 apex hybrids. Not in love with this line, and not too happy about including the name sake on the oversized model. They changed the apex to the apex pro? No. Should have called the other one the Super Max Apex or something. ruined it for me. More interested in the Sim2 Rescue and 425 this year.
  11. I'm playing an Adams Super XTD Hybrid at 17 degrees for this very reason. Playing at 41.25. Oversized hybrid. Very fairway-esque and an absolute bomber. Its the Callaway Super Hybrid before the Callaway Super Hybrid. How about Wishon clubs? There are numerous fitters in the UK. The EQ1-NX line is especially customizable as it has weighting options to play from 42-40 and comes at 60 degrees stock lie, which is quite upright, and can be bent in 2 degrees either way. Some of his other woods can be bent up to 4 degrees.
  12. Ping does really well with the slower swing market. Heavier head means more stability at impact, and produces faster ball speeds given the same club head speed. The question is how much is lost with the shorter shaft. Simple physics that the shorter shaft will be slower, but if you can swing it even close to a maximum CHS, the heavier head will make up for it. And if you have a varying strike pattern with a longer shaft and a short shaft minimizes that, you will see a greater smash factor and more consistent ball speed. For some, the heavier head also helps with swing path and shall
  13. Anyone else intrigued by the new sim2 rescue? Long time Apex and Adams user and feel like TM finally made an Adams-ish boxy hybrid after purchasing them. Need to see this in person, but its one the short list.
  14. wow. what is going on in here. looks like the oprah show. and you get a club and you get a club and you get a club. Congrats all!
