Well, I made a change in my irons so I guess I will see if I like it. If I don't, I can always go back to my Ping i20's or buy something completely new, right? I love my SCOR wedges, all with the Genius 9 shaft; well, the 42 is actually my 9i. And therein lies my problem. When I got the 42, I found that it flew higher and further than my Ping i20 9i with the stock regular flex graphite shaft. I then had a very small gap between the 42 and the i20 8i; no good. I have been trying to figure out what to do. I will keep my SCORs but most OEMs don't want to sell a partial set. Those that do, like Ben Hogan (and I haven't given up on them yet), are very expensive for 4 clubs. I only need/want 5i-8i. So, I went looking through my vast supply of old clubs in the garage. I have always liked my set of MacGregor VIP 1025M clubs, but in the past 10 years I have lost the ability to hit the TT S300 shafts. I contacted UST Mamiya because they made the Genius 9 shaft in my SCORs. That shaft doesn't exist; it vanished along with SCOR when they became Ben Hogan Golf. The Hogan's graphite shaft option is the UST Recoil shaft. I looked into it, but I don't think the Recoil in any flavor will fit my swing. I don't know that, but I have demoed the Recoil in other clubs, and I wasn't impressed. I decided to try the UST ProForce RV2 shaft since UST said that it was similar to the Genius shaft. Now my bag looks a little different: Driver SLDR 14* 4W 17* Sonartec LS-99 7W 24* Sonartec LS-99 5H 25* TaylorMade Rocketballz 5-8i MacGregor VIP 1025M Wedges SCOR 42, 46, 50, 54, 58 Putter Boccieri Heavy Putter C2-DF I've played the MacGregor VIPs for a week now after strengthen the lofts to match the Ping i20 specs and adjusting the lie to 3* flat. I love the feel but need more time to determine if they are right for me.
