  1. Questions: Can game improvement irons make it harder to close the face if you have a lot of clubhead speed? (strike and distance are not a problem for me) Is it harder to hold greens with game improvement irons? My long game, wedge, and putting game are pretty strong. Hit my driver pretty consistent 270-290 etc. and is pretty accurate. It's my iron game that gives me fits and doesn't really provide me too many opportunities for birdies, driving my handicap higher. ( I could probably cut my handicap down by at least 3-5 points if I could figure my irons out) My iron set is unfitted. I choke up for correct length for my wrist-to-ground measurement. This helped me with consistent striking. My problem is dispersion (most often pushing straight right). This could just be a swing fault, I have to get out soon to test some theories like moving the ball up in my stance to help the club face close, and adjust my swing path slightly (I draw my driver, probably too much even with the ball far up in my stance). Ultimately I would like to get fitted for irons in the next couple of years, but just wondering if anyone has seen vast improvements in consistency/dispersion and holding greens with the move to players or players-distance irons when your clubhead speed and strength are above average.

  5. So on Wednesday I'm headed to the Team Titleist Invitational at TPC Sawgrass. It will be 2.5 days of golf, getting to see and demo the entire 718 line, and getting to have a Q&A and discussions with several people from Titleist HQ. I went last year to Pinehurst when the 917 lineup was introduced and it was a fantastic time, filled with lots of great information directly from the sources. I'm really interested in hitting the new 718 lineup, probably focusing on the AP1 and AP3 but might also like to see what I can or can't do with one of those TMB's. So if you have any questions about the new line or really anything Titliest related..(except for the K Sig-ProV battle) I'm sure with the lawsuits in place, that's a non starter of a topic. But anything else let me know and i'll try and get the answer directly from them. I'll be updating this thread along the way with pics over the 3 days, so stay tuned!
  6. Something occurred to me last night for the first time. Probably because I just went through a recent fitting where I was making sure I was still a midsize grip. I have always had my iron grips in midsize for as long as I can remember. But last night as I was grabbing a hybrid, with the stock grip, it made me wonder why I never considered getting a midsize grip for my hybrid, or driver, of FW or wedges for that matter. So those that have midsize grips, do you have throughout the entire set or just irons? What are your thoughts either way on the subject?
  7. They will need new grips. The shafts weight is 127grams. The 5iron length is 37.75". Tthe tip size is .355". The ball flight that they give is Low-Mid (i.e: Lower than KBS) Asking for 70$ shipped!!!!!!OBO!!!!
  8. A little over a month ago, TaylorMade and Rory debuted Rory's custom built clubs, the Rors Proto irons. I was wondering if anyone has come across some performance numbers for the irons like ball speed, spin, carry? It would simply be eyebrow-raising to see what numbers these clubs generate under Rory's swing. Maybe if someone has come across Rory's iron play numbers over the past month or so, that'd be super neat to study. Of course they're not production irons which hinders pretty much any possibility to gain numbers of them, but can't hurt to try! -Thanks! Swing easy.

  10. What's the most underrated equipment in your bag? Is there something in your bag that maybe hasn't gotten a ton of love in the golf community either with players or reviews? For me I am finding that Adams made some really great equipment especially right before the Taylormade purchase of them. I bought a brand new Adams XTD Ti 3 wood and 5 wood for $30 bucks each...got an Adam Pro Red hybrid for $40 and have the XTD Ti Driver in route to the house purchased for $50. I am really amazed at these items...great sound and plenty hot...great stock Matrix shafts as well....what are your thoughts?
  11. I am looking for a set of irons that are in between blades and game improvement irons. I currently play titleist AP2 710 4-pw. I bought them when they came out because I couldn't stand the look and feel of the AP1's or any other GI irons. I'm a 16 handicap and they are on the small side(club head). I have looked at the mizuno JPX 850 forged irons because they are slightly bigger club heads but have a nice blade style profile. I was wondering if there is any other irons out there that I should look at. Is it me or are there not that many "in between" clubs out there?
  12. Hi Everyone, I don't post too much, but I really love the irons and the whole setup of my bag to the point where I believe everything is very dialed in! Been playing for 2 full seasons this will be season 3 and very excited to get out on the links!! A little more Detailed WITB than my signature: Driver: Nike Vapor Flex, weight forward, Diamana S+ 60 shaft in stiff, loft is 9.5 or 10.5 still see which flight is best once I can actually hit outside (Canadian winters), Draw bias 3W: Callaway Big Bertha 2014, Fubuki Z65 Stiff shaft, 15 degrees draw bias. 3Hybrid: Callaway X2 Hot, Callaway Ultralite Blue 60G Shaft, 19 degrees The good Stuff! Irons, Gotta say I'm soooo happy with these: King Cobra LTD Pro MB/CB Combo BLACK FINISH 7-PW MB's and 4-6i CB's, so workable high and low trajectories! AND FEEL PHENOMENAL!! 1/4" Short, 2 Degrees Flat, standard lofts. C-Taper Lite 110G Stiff shaft(unreal shafts, tight dispersion left to right and front to back, perfect mid flights) Wedges: 54 degree RTX 2 dot(stock shaft, will replace after this season) 50(2dot) and 58(3dot) are RTX 3 with C-Taper Lite shafts 110G Stiff, just got these haven't hit the 50 but 58 is amazing for chipping and being creative around the green. Putter: Nike method, blade style w/ insert (not a great putter so it will do for now) Thanks for checking out my bag, leave some comments, and if you got any questions about those irons! Attached a few pics, Driver got replaced by nike, old picture had the cobra driver
  13. Well fellow Spys, it's time for a little spring cleaning. All items are OBO and willing to negotiate. Not trying to get rich, just make it fair. I've been buying and selling on eBay for a long time (ID=pgcsf). I know what things are worth, I keep items in best condition possible and I have great feedback. As for shipping, smaller items are most likely free. Everything else, we will decide best option together and I'd prefer to split cost 50/50. I usually use USPS priority and it's almost always reasonable. Any thoughts/questions we'll work it out. Will ship within 48hrs of received payment. I try very hard to describe all items as accurately as possible. I take great care of my equipment and have no problem passing it on to others to enjoy. Anything, please ask. Please DM me Oudefart and I'll happily include more pics for any specific item. Thanks. I will do my best to honor correspondence in order received. I reserve the right to end any discussion/agreement should it get nasty (it happens, at least on eBay). Finally, I request all transactions via PayPal. I'd prefer using Friends/Family option to avoid an fees. Thanks. Here's the list: - OBAN Kiyoshi Black shaft for driver. 04 flex (stiff) 75g. Depending on head, finished club should measure roughly 44.5" $125 OBO - Leupold GX-1 rangerfinder. VERY lightly used as I bought one with slope shortly after getting this. $115 OBO - Titliest 915F 15° 3W, Diamana Blue Board 72g Stiff. Shaft is brand new, never used it with this head.

I build them to Miura stated specs. $800 OBO 4 iron - (shows least wear) PW - (shows most wear)

  18. Hello folks, new guy here, I have finally decided to buy a new set of irons this summer after gaming the same set for ~15 years. Have never been fitted for irons either. Primarily looking at Titleist AP2/CB, Mizuno H5/MP-15, or the new Hogan hi/PTx (always admired the Hogan Apex Plus). I am not an equipment junkie so I am really going to take my time with this decision. I am an ok ball striker with a horrible mental game. My current set has 4* gaps with a 48* PW which gives me 3 wedges up to 60* (love my 60*, too much probably). I spoke with a Mizuno fitter who was really surprised that I would want to bend every iron to keep my current specs. He said it just wasn't modern. Modern meaning 46*PW. I really like having a uniform progression up to 60* (perhaps my attraction to the new Hogan philosophy). It works really well with my distances so that my 8i (40*) goes 150y. Distance isn't as big of a concern as constant yardage gaps for me. I realize this is probably an old and tired question, but how do you folks deal with the new 'modern' lofts? Do you bend them? Carry wedges with larger degree gasps (assuming you want a 60* wedge)? Am I missing something? Please educate this equipment dinosaur.
  19. Golfsmith Tour Cavity Pro irons 4-9 with good Golfsmith slight oversize grips. True Temper shafts. Very clean heads. $27+actual shipping via USPS Priority Mail. I accept PayPal as a gift or add 3% to cover fees. Email me at dwcopple@yahoo.com See pics.
  20. Beautiful old set of Karsten 1 irons, all matching serial numbers, original shafts. Never abused, and kept in climate controlled environment as long as I've had them. Pictures include face of the PW...grooves still in excellent condition. All grooves on all clubs in this or better shape. Make me a good offer, please!
  21. Excellent set of Taylormade M2 irons 5-PW and a Taylormade M2 Tour Gap (A) wedge. I have taken individual pictures of the gap wedge and the 7 iron to show the difference between the M2 and M2 tour. The M2 Tour gap wedge blends seamlessly with the set and features slightly less offset than the standard M2 irons. These clubs have been upgraded to Project X 6.0 Graphite shafts and have Golf Pride Velvet Cord grips on the 5-PW and Golf Pride Z Cord grip on the Gap (A) wedge. They have been played approx. 12 rounds with range sessions in between. The faces show minimal normal wear and the soles have no rock chips or dings. Swingweight is D2 and the 5 iron measures 38.5" long. Images can be found here: http://imgur.com/a/R9Dtc Email me at rcslade@hotmail.com Asking $523 shipped OBO.

Training aids in the bag: The Ultimate Swing Trainer Lag Rag Power Golf System The SwingRight Trainer Alignment Rods Here are a few photos...ENJOY!
  23. If the hype about the new MP 25 irons from Mizuno is true my search for irons with feel & "distance" may be over when they are released in September. Mizuno claim that by using Boron along with their grain forged technology they have been able to add up to 7 yards in distance to the new irons. The 25's have been released as direct replacements for the MP 54's which as you all no doubt know that is what I am gaming and have been sort of looking for a longer set of clubs without resorting to the game improvement, loft jiggered irons on steroids type club. The 25's are also apparently more compact than the 54's which apparently appeals more to the better player. I must admit I've never really understood that angle but to each their own. Also being released soon is the S series wedges. These wedges are supposed to be somewhere between a game improvement wedge and your traditionally forged models already part of the Mizuno line. Wedges are something else I've been sort of looking for too. I've picked up lots of club whoring techniques since joining this forum and I am thinking of checking into rehab as soon as possible after purchasing a set of MP 25's, and matching S series wedges oh and a cute little Mizuno putter I spotted at the local Muni course pro shop yesterday
  24. I've got a 5-P set of used Mizuno MP-58's. They have Nippon Pro 950GH r-flex shafts and the factory Mizuno dual compound grips. These have been used but the faces are still in solid condition with no browning at all, I'd say the grips are almost done with though. The shafts weren't right for me so i'm selling them to make room. Price is $125 shipped via USPS and payment via PayPal. If you think the price is too high feel free to let me know, i have no need for them so would be willing to discuss.
  25. Here's a great deal for only $260 http://dealadaygolf.com/past-deal/adams-golf-super-s-iron-combo-set Brand Adams New Super S Irons With this set, you'll receive the #3 and #4 Hybrids plus the full set of the 5/6/7/8/9 irons and the Pitching Wedge.
