  1. CLEVELAND GOLF INTRODUCES LAUNCHER XL HALO IRONS HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. – Aug. 18, 2021 – Cleveland Golf is proud to announce the all-new Launcher XL HALO Irons, hybrid-style super game improvement irons designed to make the game of golf more fun. The Launcher XL HALO Irons officially launch in North America on Aug. 20, 2021 for graphite irons and Sept. 17, 2021 for steel irons. “From head to grip, Launcher XL HALO Irons just make golf easier and more fun,” said Brian Schielke, General Manager at Cleveland Golf. “Most of us don’t have much confidence standing 170 yards out with a long iron in hand, and needing to carry a bunker to make the green. But with Launcher XL HALO, you’ll swing easier, feel confident, and be shocked at how forgiving they are. These irons will become your go-to clubs.” The foundation of these new irons is the XL Head design, which increases MOI for improved forgiveness and shots that launch high and find their target. In fact, the Launcher XL HALO Irons feature a 17% increase in MOI compared to the previous generation of hybrid-irons. For faster shots that travel far, we developed a new MainFrame iron face that harnesses the power of Artificial Intelligence to create the optimal club face for these irons. The variable thickness pattern maximizes COR and ball speed to help generate more distance than previous generations. Launcher XL HALO Irons help develop a better, consistent strike. Gliderails on the long irons deliver excellent turf interaction, while the mid-to-short irons feature our V-Shaped Sole to cut through the turf more effectively for cleaner contact. Meanwhile, a new 8g weight placed inside the end of every grip delivers better balance, control, and a smoother swing without extra effort to help square up the ball at impact. If precision is what is desired above all else, we’re offering a new Accuracy Build, a custom configuration that is half an inch shorter without counterbalancing to focus on maximum control. Key Innovations Inside the Launcher XL HALO Irons: XL Head Design: The Launcher XL HALO Irons feature our highest MOI ever in a Cleveland Golf hybrid-iron. It’s maximum distance with maximum fun. Rail to V-Shaped Sole Design: Gliderail in the long irons gradually transitions to a V-Shaped sole in the short irons and ultimately, a three-tiered sole on the Dual and Sand wedges. MainFrame: Designed using Artificial Intelligence, MainFrame variable face technology increases ball speed while unique weight pad designs ensure maximum forgiveness across the face. Action Mass CB: An 8g weight placed inside the end of the grip delivers better balance for more control without extra effort. HiBore Crown Step: The stepped crown shape brings the height of the crown down, dropping the center of gravity and raising your launch in the process. Loft Specific Grooves: The 4i-7i lofts have wider, flatter grooves, while the 8i-SW lofts have closely-spaced, deeper, and higher spinning wedge grooves. Retail Information and Pricing Pricing: 7-piece graphite set ($899.99); 7-piece steel set ($799.99) U.S. Retail Launch Date: August 20, 2021 (Graphite), September 17, 2021 (Steel)
  2. I didn't want this one to get overlooked with the other club releases today, so here are two new putters from Cleveland CLEVELAND GOLF INTRODUCES TWO ADDITIONAL PUTTER LINES HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA – Aug. 10, 2020 – Cleveland Golf® is proud to announce the new Huntington Beach SOFT Premier putters, to go along with an array of new Huntington Beach SOFT models. Discover a new, premium putting experience and the confidence to sink more putts with the new Huntington Beach SOFT Premier, officially launching on Friday, Aug. 21, 2020. “The Huntington Beach SOFT Premier builds upon the success of our current putter lineup,” said Brian Schielke, Marketing Director at Cleveland Golf. “With new head shapes, sleek designs, and a fitting system for every stroke type, we have a putter that will help any golfer improve their performance on the greens.” The foundation of the Huntington Beach SOFT Premier is Cleveland Golf’s proprietary Speed Optimized Face Technology (SOFT). SOFT solves the crucial putting issue of distance control. SOFT normalizes the speed of putts across the entire putter face. The center of the face features more condensed milling lines, while milling mark frequency decreases going outward from the center. Unlike similar technologies featured elsewhere, SOFT takes the next step by delivering model specific milling for each model so we can deliver optimized distance control regardless of the putter shape. What separates the Huntington Beach SOFT Premier is a new Gray Satin finish that provides a sleek, premium look and limits glare. Huntington Beach SOFT Premier features two specific putter grips to achieve optimal putting performance for each stroke type. For slight or strong arcing strokes, the Lamkin SINKFIT Skinny Pistol grip, combined with a toe-down weighting, will help facilitate clubhead rotation. Meanwhile, the larger Lamkin SINKFIT Pistol grip and face-balanced design is ideal for straight back stroke types. Key Innovations Inside Huntington Beach SOFT Premier: Gray Satin Finish: Sleek, Gray Satin PVD finish delivers a premium appearance and instills a sense of confidence. Speed Optimized Face Technology: Ensuring consistent speed control and distance performance, Cleveland’s proprietary Speed Optimized Face Technology normalizes ball speed across the entire face of the putter, even on off-center putts. Putting Fit System: With two different grip options, the new Huntington Beach SOFT Premier offers a precise fit depending on your stroke type and model preference. Precision Milled Face: A unique diamond CNC milling pattern increases friction for a pure roll and softer feel at impact. Furthermore, Cleveland Golf is introducing eight new tour-proven shapes to the Huntington Beach SOFT collection. These new releases offer a similar fitting system. For slight or strong arc types, the Huntington Beach SOFT Pistol grip comes standard, while straight back stroke types will benefit from the Huntington Beach SOFT Oversized grip. Huntington Beach SOFT Premier putters are available for $159.99 MAP, while the new models of Huntington Beach SOFT putters are available for $129.99 MAP. Personalization is available for both models featuring 16 unique color selections and four different color fill areas for an additional $10.

  4. Hi, I just wanted to share my experience with cold bluing my wedges. The pictures on the left were the wedges after being soaked in coke overnight and rubbed with a steel whool. I used birchwood casey's bluing kit to blue my wedges and they turned out amazing! So if anyone was wondering if they could do this themselves, well, you absolutely can ;).

  6. Sorry for the repost but for whatever reason posting from the App didn't work. This is a combo post of the two I tried earlier one of my clubs and of my custom head covers. One of my favorite golf drinks is Crown and 7up so it is safe to say I have a few of these beautiful bags laying around the house. I went to my grandma with an idea and I think they came out great. She is over 90 and up until last year she still played golf (she is a gin and tonic fan)

  8. In the golf club world, where most companies insist on renaming or launching a new name after one or two iterations of a club, to see a company stick with a name into the 4th generation....well that must say something about the winning formula they have. Below is a video from Cleveland Golf on it's RTX4 wedge. Then we have four members of our forum who are in the process of testing these wedges to see how they perform for their games.

  9. With divided bags being of countless variations, what do you all prefer? I have a mizuno Aerolite micro bag that i have been using for about 4 years. I would like to get a new 14 way bag because I am a meticulous person. But I figured I would ask since there is nothing else better to do with this quarantine.
  10. Seeing heavy marketing for the 2nd gen CBX wedges from cleveland. Many other manufacturers have come out with models similar to these. I just don't see the cavity on a wedge doing much. Anyone have cavity back wedges or has given them a try? Are they worth the hype?

  13. Cleveland Srixon #FitLikeAPro: 6 Month Report My journey to better began last November during the MyGolfSpy #FitLikeaPro Cleveland/Srixon experience at their headquarters in Huntington Beach, California. It was a whirlwind adventure over 2 days that involved full bag fittings, a tour of HQ, sit down dinners with all the people in the know from marketing to R&D and a few quality holes of golf. Yes, it's been 6 months since I visited California, but I didn't want to rush back and write something without putting legit playing time on these while still drunk on the Srixon koolaid. I did that after the TaylorMade #LoftUp trip to the Kingdom and learned my lesson, that driver and I were so such a mismatch it was straight up commical. I've already taken a lot of flak and jabs (jokingly I hope) from buddies who see my social media and say I've become a part of the Srixon axis of evil hive collective taking over the internet, or I've been brainwashed by my free trip, but that's just not true and I can speak to that on two levels. First, I went to Cleveland/Srixon, so as MGS staffer I'm the guy with first hand knowledge of the product. If I had gone to PING, Callaway, or TaylorMade my social media and forum voice would be the same because that's the product I can actually attest to. Secondly, and this one's important: Cleveland/Srixon products flat out perform and I'll get into that more in-depth as we go on. When I arrived in Cali I was met by Eli Miller (Marketing Communications Manager) at the airport and whisked off to a little Mexican joint, there we hooked up with the rest of the MGSers and Noelle Zavaleta (Marketing Communications Associate). This was a non pretentious lunch and set the tone early as to who Cleveland/Srixon are: a company run by real everyday people just like you and me, who just want to tell you their story. Nothing about it felt forced or staged, they come across as genuine. The fitting experience was great. I spent the majority of it hanging out with Cleveland/Srixon marketing and PR gurus Eli and Noelle where I learned all the great details of the 2017 Z series lineup. I also learned that their staff are extremely​ knowledgeable and golf experienced outside their title roles as Eli fit me through the entire bag. So now 6 months removed from my tryst in Huntington Beach, the honeymoon is over and I feel I'm finally in a good place to speak to the product. I've got 2 solid months of golf in, which have started their typical way as they seem to annually for me. Month one my ball striking is lights out, can't miss a shot and short game is meh. Month two is a complete reversal where I'm between my old swing and new, but my short game is lights out and I'm still shooting around par. But all this is good, why? Because I can speak to how each product affects or helps my game during inconsistent struggles and when it's on. So with that said let's take a look at Cleveland/Srixons 2017 lineup with what's in my bag. Driver Srixon Z565 10.5* with Miyazaki Kaula Mizu 7 73g Stiff shaft My impressions going into this was that Srixon is an iron and ball company and that drivers (woods) were just a product sku to fill out a full bag listing; I couldn't have been more wrong. The driver may actually be the shining star of the whole 2017 Srixon lineup, but don't just take it from me, there's a reason MyGolfSpy named the Z565 the 2017 Most Wanted driver and the Z765 rounded out the top 5 and I'll say it again--they flat out perform. 2017 Srixon drivers are powered by 3 new key technologies: a power wave sole, stretch flex cup face and lightweight crown.. Well R&D must be onto something because I've been not only smashing the cores out of balls, but hitting a lot of fairways at the same time. The unsung hero though might be the stock shaft offerings with 2017 Srixon drivers - the Miyazaki Kaula line. Here it pays to own a high end shaft company as Srixon do and because of this they can offer the Kaula to golfers in 4 profiles and 32 different configurations to find the best fit for each player. Kaula models consist of: KIRI - for players who need to increase distance with a higher launch. MIZU - mid launch mid spin fitting a wide range of players who want maximum distance and control. MIZORE - high-speed players who prefer a low-mid trajectory with low spin. KORI - high-speed players who prefer a penetrating launch with low spin. OK enough tech talk... The Z565 has been as long as anything for me and it it's finding fairways. I think that speaks to its workability as much as the tech that keeps it from straying offline. I want to point out one thing good or bad - these drivers are loud, you know when you've smacked one and your group will tell they heard it. Probably my biggest takeaway from this driver is it's ability to produce minimal distance loss on miss-hit shots, yes I've hit some skanky drives this year and never find myself more than a club back of optimal distance. My own performance aside, I've seen others with the same results. On the trip KCLeo (this guy's pure stick and can golf a ball) was fit to the Z765 and has long struggled to find an ideal low spin and workable combination. He was nutting the driver and if you follow his social media continues to to this day. SCC4380 (Steve) was fit into a Z565 9.5⁰ driver with a Miyazaki Kaula Mizore 6 S shaft and may have hit his career drive on our 6th hole, which I swear was somewhere in the 340 yard range. So yes those are guys who joined me on the Srixon smchooz fest trip, what about the pure and unsullied masses? A good friend and member of my weekly foursome put his order in last week for a very similar setup to mine, he just couldn't get over how well I'm hitting it. My takeaway from all this - Srixon is a driver company and should be on your list of drivers to try. 3 wood F65 3 15* wood with Miyazaki Since my late 80's TaylorMade spoon, I haven't met a 3 wood I loved... A lot of that plays into look and comfortability at address . The Z F65 3 wood not only sits nice, but performs and feels like the Z series drivers. Not much more to say here, it works, but I’m sure I could hate it in a month just because it's a 3 wood. Utility U65 2 utility iron with Nippon Modus3 120 S shaft Want a hybrid that doesn't tend to flip over into hooks, enter the Srixon U65 utility series clubs. These things like to hold straight or baby cuts and they got everything covered in the distance department too. These are the perfect clubs for those who don't like the look of hybrids at address. Irons Srixon Z565 4-5 & Z765 6-PW with Nippon Modus3 120 S shafts V.T. Soles - that's the magic of these beauties. Designed to move through the ground easier and help tighten up shot dispersion. Translated: they make club go fast through the grass. You can be tired, lazy, hitting em fat and they still cut through the turf and minimize your miss-hits. Believe me I've seen it. The Z565 irons are compact for a cavity back not much bigger than the Z765, feel really smooth and offer quite a bit more playability than they suggest. I went with these in the long irons because they just added a touch more confidence on long shots. Other than my semi-shovels RocketBladez have I found it this easy to get long irons up in the air and and stop them near targets. Z765 in the mid and short irons were a no brainer. A Slimmer muscle cavity loaded with improvement technology that feel like butter. When you pure one these it feels as good as any irons on the market and I've hit the proclaimed kings: the Mizuno line. I was fit into the stock Nippon Modus3 120 option and it's a incredible pairing for a stock combo. Oh and I should mention, Srixon irons tested really well at MyGolfSpy HQ too. https://www.mygolfspy.com/tested-2017-srixon-z-series-irons/ Wedges Cleveland RTX-3 Tour Raw V-MG sole with Nippon Modus3 120 S shafts 50*-54*-58* These come in 3 grinds and like Srixon irons, feature Cleveland's extremely versatile V-Sole technology. I was fit to the V-MG which is a mid-range bounce and adapts nicely to the variable course conditions I experience in Pacific Northwest. The combinations of sole technologies combined with micro milling and laser milled face technologies have been noticeable when pulling off shots I haven't been able to make in years. As an example I had a 50 yard, half wedge pitch recently that that I could hear and feel I caught pure, "crisp and clean", however it flew 3 feet past the hole. Well to my shock and surprise I only had a 7 footer left. That ball literally one hopped and stopped dead. Oh and there's a cool face balancing technology, a shortened hosel, some weight move around, resulting is more head stability and straighter shots. I'm not going to ramble anymore, here's a video explaining it all. Shaft wise I was fitted to matching Modus3 shafts like my irons and I really like this combo. Not only have these wedges been a treat around the greens, but they play like irons on full shots. I've had wedges in the past that just felt limited in their abilities outside of 100 yards, either pop-up off the face or never seem to load properly. With the RTX-3 combo I'm able to flight trajectories, work them left and right, and step on them when I need that extra 4-5 yards. I gotta point out that I went with the raw finish and I'm curious to see if my OCD freaks out as the clean beauty starts to look more like a Jackson Pollock painting. Putter I thought for sure I was going to be gaming the Cleveland Huntington Beach #1 this season. The HB series putters are all about wow factor forged feel and milling, plus incredible balance all for under $100. But then something happened... On golf day I was informed they would not have a Huntington Beach available for me due to stock issues, so I was supplied with a TFi 2135 1.0. I had tested the TFi during fitting day and frankly, was not in love with the feel. You know though somethings are just fate, because I canned 3 putts over 20 feet in the first 6 holes we played, and then the epiphany; this putter is super easy to align, hard to get the ball started offline and the distance control is unreal. So then Cleveland was awesome enough to ship me home both putters, and being me I got all excited when the Hunting Beach finished fourth in MyGolfSpy's Most Wanted Blade test. So I bag the HB for the first month of season and putting just ok. So the next round I put the TFi into play and finish with 24 putts... Same epiphany... and guess what's still in the bag to this day? I'm gonna go out and say it. I don't think you'll find a putter out there that performs better than any Cleveland for under $150. If you see these on sale I'd buy one as backup even if you didn't need it. Balls Durability Unless you hit a cart path (or two), or 7 trees, or a railway track, a 67 Buick, or any combination of the these, and trust me I can attest to all this; all of the Z Star lineup look pretty much brand new after a round. ZStar Driver: Gets up a little, maybe on the high side of mid Irons: same as driver Wedges: suck back Putter: very soft I find the ball tends to drop out of the air faster with the Z for me on full shots, but they're by far my favorite from 100 yards and in. Spin control around the greens is just a touch above the other two balls and putter feel is amazing. Z Star XV Driver: mid flight Irons: mid Wedges: hop and stop Putter: soft The XV is my preferred ball for the long game. Ball flight is a consistent mid flight and it just seems to stay in the air a little longer. Spin is great, I'm just not sucking them back like the Z, but maybe that's a good thing because they're stopping where I need them to. Q Star Tour Driver: Gets up a little, maybe on the high side of mid Irons: same as driver Wedges: hop and stop Putter: super soft What a treat this ball was in our cold early spring. The Q Star is easy to compress thanks to its 75 compression, flies a mile and stops when you need them too. Around the greens these work like a tour ball checking when called upon and putter feel is exceptional. The jury's still out on which will be my official gamer as I continue to tweak the swing, but honestly I could play any of the Z Star Tour balls and be pretty happy. Bag Z4 Carry This a lightweight carry bag, with ample storage, it's solid feeling and so far displays quite sturdy legs. It fits on both my carts with no issues and has a fairly minimal footprint in the trunk. The top is a 4-way design, which having come from 6, 14 and OGIO's Woode system (which I freekin loved) I didn't think I'd adjust. I actually have zero issues with the 4 way after having used it and with the angled dividers find it quite effective at keeping clubs apart from chatter. I asked Eli Miller why only 4 and he told me they were gunning for more of a player's style bag, which I think combined with the overall stature of the bag design is quite a nice touch. There's 2 velour lined valuable pockets, which being the social and photo guy I am, I absolutely love. There's the usual higher up one on the long pocket side you'll find on most bags, which is fairly deep and has enough space for wallet, keys etc. And then there's the cell pocket on the side of the ball pocket, which sits on a perfect angle when standing or on a cart. I was able to keep it open with my phone in it over the past few 18's for quick access for taking photos. Finally completing the players bag touch is a removable ball pocket which is pretty standard for stitching purposes. Once again nice touch, because I need to sew the most important thing. The Z4 might be my new favorite thing after my driver cover. The wrap It’s hard not to come across as a fanboy at the end of the day (somewhere GolfSpy X is rolling his eyes at me), but I’m going to have to say this; Cleveland Srixon may offer the most complete bag setup of all the OEM’s. From award winning drivers, right thru to more award winning putters, balls, wedges and hell even the bag, Cleveland Srixon makes it a hard case to argue against.
  14. Alright, so after playing for 25ish years, I finally got fit for clubs. I’m 32 years old. I don’t have the shaft information on me at the moment, but I hope you find it interesting nonetheless. Driver: Wilson C300 Stiff Flex 9 degrees, but I’ve got it adjusted to 10 Fairway Wood: Cobra F8 Regular Flex 5-6 wood. It’s set to 18.5 degrees Irons: Wilson Staff D7 Regular Flex 5-GW Wedges: Cleveland CBX 52, 56, 60 Putter: Tommy Armour Impact No.3 Ball: Cut Grey So I consider myself a middle handicapper. I can easily shoot low to mid 80’s. However, I recently was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease in my back. So in order to extend my playing time I’ve taken quite a bit off my swing. Because I’m still adjusting to a new swing, I wanted clubs much more forgiving but I wouldn’t lose too much distance. The brand new D7 irons have offered me the best combination of long distance and good accuracy. I know their lofts are jacked but since I slowed my swing, I technically haven’t lost any distance off the iron number. I have the same philosophy with the wedges. My fitter handed me the CBX wedges and I was blown away by how consistently I was hitting them the same distances. As little as I’m getting to play, once a month, I’m not looking to shape too many shots, I just want to go straight. I’m always kinda an underdog guy so you’ll pretty much never find anything Taylormade/Callaway/Ping/Titleist in my bag. I can’t stand the elitist attitude in golf that knocks statistically proven great clubs because they’re not made by a big 4 OEM. My favorite club in the bag is the Tommy Armour putter. I hit hundreds of puts that day and it even blew away the Evnroll for me. I’m not a tall guy either, barely 5’7”, so everything is shaved down 1/4 of an inch to 1/2 an inch. You’ll notice I only have 13 clubs. I’m very satisfied with my 5 wood and 5 iron as my long clubs so I’m considering adding a PM Grind 64 degree wedge for lobs once the new model comes out in February (I know it’s made by Callaway lol). Let me know what y’all think!

  19. Well for me this will be challenging, as I know the number will be higher than I expected, and my memory isn't what it used to be. But I thought it'd be fun to list all the drivers we've had in the bag at one time or another. I was going to go by year, but I don't have that good of recall anymore, so I'll go by brand. Let the fun begin.

  21. An Unofficial Review of Cleveland RTX-3 Wedges Hey guys and gals, I am new to the forums, but wanted to contribute something because I think this is a pretty neat community. I've replaced almost every club in my bag this season (and my bag, come to think of it), but the most notable improvement I've seen simply due to a club upgrade has come from my set of Cleveland RTX-3 Wedges. I purchased a 50°, 54°, and a 58°, all in the “Tour Raw” finish and the V-MG grind, on June 6th to replace my random assortment of wedges, the 50° from my iron set (Taylormade Burner ‘09s), a 55° from a set of Taylormade RBZ irons, and a 60° Cleveland RTX 2.0 that I bought on a whim when Sports Authority was in its death rattle. I hit Cleveland RTX-3s, Vokeys, and Ping Glide wedges at the PGA Tour Superstore in Sandy, UT and just loved the look and feel of the Clevelands, so I pulled the trigger. I paid the standard retail price of $129.99 per club + tax. I was having trouble with consistency with my original setup, probably due to my swing, but also the feel of each of the three wedges was very different. The 5° gaps were wide as well. I decided to shrink the gaps by 1° and get rid of the 60°. It was simply too much loft for me, and I wasn't hitting it how I wanted to. The first time I hit the RTX 3.0 set was one evening at work when I was waiting for the last carts to come in (perks of working at the course!). It sounds a bit ridiculous, but I holed out my first shot from about 75 yards with the 54°. I was sold! I definitely didn't hole out my next 100 or so shots, but I noticed a marked improvement in my pitching game almost immediately. I used them to chip that evening as well, and I was happy with the performance, considering my chipping was poor at best with my old set. If I struck them well, I could get the ball to check quite a bit, even with range balls when before I don't think I ever got a ball to check noticeably at all. Since I purchased these wedges, I've shot the best 3 rounds of my short golf life (1 year), with an 86, 85, and 84. Also, my putting numbers have gone down, which I think has a lot to do with the fact that I'm able to miss greens, but put myself in a position to 1 putt. I've had more 1 putts in the past few weeks than I've ever had. It's important to keep in mind that I also have been playing A LOT (5-6 rounds per week), and am getting more comfortable on the course every day. I was a little nervous about hitting these clubs out of the sand, as I was a solid bunker player with my old, wide-soled 55° SW. The first go with the 54° in a bunker was a badly bladed shot that ended up on the other side of the green…. in another bunker. The second bunker shot with the 54° was great, though, and I put it about 4 feet from the pin, which is pretty good for me! I've continued the bunker success since that first round and have had quite a few sand saves with these clubs. I believe I've had a sand save with each one at least once. Form factor is important to me, and I really like the look of these wedges. They look very nice behind the ball and the Tour Raw finish suits me. After playing a handful of rounds with these, the almost bronze finish is starting to wear off, exposing the raw metal beneath. Every round I love the look more. Rusty wedges seem to be a polarizing topic around these parts, and I fall on the side of loving the look of a well-used, trusty rusty. On the head plastic when I purchased these, it said “designed to rust”. The grooves have an appealing look to me as well, and the milling is interesting and seems to perform well. The stock grip is a comfortable Lamkin (not sure which model) and the stock shaft is a Dynamic Gold Wedge shaft. As a mid to high-handicapper, the specifics of the weighting and other improvements that Cleveland showcases are hard to feel for me. All I know is, whatever Cleveland did is working out for me! I believe that Cleveland offers full customization of these wedges from their website, all the way down to paintfills. This is my first product review probably ever, so if there is anything I can do to improve it, if I'm breaking any forum rules, or I'm missing something, please let me know, and if you have any questions about the wedges, I'll try my best to answer them! Thanks for reading!
  22. 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.
