  1. I played a lot of golf as a kid- my dad was a big golfer and I actually got to play Valhalla a lot as I was a caddy there in high school. I was probably as good as I am now when I was 12 and couldnt hit the ball a full 70% as far as I do now. I started playing every week this summer and a couple of first rounds that exceeded my expectations got me hooked again. My set consisted of some iron set by the brand "PRIMA" and the OG great big bertha titanium woods I definitely needed some new irons- they were budget forged cavity irons with graphite shafts from maybe the year 1998- they were like $200 new at the golf shop back when Ping's were like $800 So i hit some clubs- my buddy sold me a set of callaway steelhead xr pro irons for cheap- and I hit them pretty good the few times on the course I used them. Off the tee I hit the 3 iron nearly 15 yards longer with ease (even with 1/2" shorter length steel shaft) Now I'm struggling with them out of the rough and off the fairway (and off the tee really). I'm sure my swing needs help. But I was killing my buddys taylormade RAC OS irons from like 2003. They have graphite shafts and aer super light compared to the steelhead pro's- they also have a ton of offset next to steelheads- but I hit them really really well. Like I was hitting them so far and high I thought I needed something with a more pro center of gravity I think I'm dealing with the adjsutment of weight and offset. The steelheads are heavier and have a LOT less offset than irons I'm used to. My normal bad shot is a slice. If I try to use my arms too much or try to ease up on the ball. I've fixed my slice off the tee with driver and can put it out at about 270 pretty consistently with a fade- still cant draw without closing the club face at address- oh yeh- i'm 33 and not in terrible shape or flexibility. But I am still slicing the steelheads or hooking them when I try to compensate. I feel like the wide soles of the steelheads are harder to take a divot with and in getting throught he rough. I dont want blade thin soles. But am I correct in feeling like the wide sole makes hitting out of the rough more difficult? I get severely limited distance out of the rough most of the time Then sometime I absolutely crush these irons 15 yards over the green. I'm sure my ball striking isnt great but I was way more consistent with the crappy irons, but I was feeling like my handicap would be at least a 11-14 HC pretty quick once I started rolling some putts and chips a bit better. I was hitting a lot of greens in regulation right when I started playing again (if you dont count the mulligans off the tee until I fixed my driver swing) Does anyone have advice for switching from offset to non offset irons? And I'm wondering if I should just use irons with some offset or try to overcome it- and I may be struggling with the weight. The steelheads feel super heavy even though they only have xp95 shafts. offset seems like a slippery slope- like do all my clubs need to be offset? I dont need offset in my driver apparently? though itd probably be nice to not worry about slicing it OB every once in a while. Sorry for the terribly long post and intro. I dont have the money to get custom fit- or take a bunch of lessons. But i do have some money to buy and sell clubs on ebay or demo them at shops until I find something that works a bit better. Thanks a bunch!
  2. I am looking at buying a set of 2009 Callaway X-Forged or Razr X Forged. I played the 2007 X-Forged but since they were non-conforming, I switched to the Bridgestone J38 Dual Pocket Cavity (great clubs). I have the itch to go back to the Callaway forgings due to their weight (D2) (Bridgestone are a D1). Plus, I really like the look and feel of them. The Question: The 2009 X-Forged has grooves that are spaced "normal" but the Razr X Forged has the tightly spaced conforming grooves. Are the tighter grooves good or bad? (I've heard they don't change much) Additionally, does anyone know if the 2009 X-Forged (Version 2 on USGA Conforming Database) from Callaway have conforming grooves. The USGA database says additional testing required (ATR). If you have any input on how tighter grooves play it would be appreciated. I remember the conversations about it back in the day but I can't seem to find anything about it now. I'm a 5 handicap FYI. Thanks!
  3. PRICE DROP FOR SALE: MIURA 501 IRON SET - NOW $600 - 4-PW - SHAFT: Aerotech Steelfiber i110 cw (stiff) - GRIP: Golf Pride Multi-Decade Black/Black - SPECS: all set to Miura standard (see graphic) These irons are in nice condition. LOTS of life left in them, the grooves are great. There is expected bag chatter, however they're well taken care of. I cleaned them before/after each shot and again after every round. Admittedly, part of the asking $ is due to the upgraded shaft. I try very hard to describe all items as accurately as possible. I've been buying and selling on eBay for a long time (ID=pgcsf). I keep my items in best condition possible and I have great feedback. Anything, please ask. Free shipping, will ship within 48hrs of received payment. Please DM or email me (Oudefart) and I'll happily include more pics. I will do my best to honor correspondence in order received. Finally, I request all transactions via PayPal. Thanks.

  4. Hey! I'm new on here but well established on eBay and some other golf forums. Figured I'd share these here as well. They didn't beat out my current irons after testing, so they're up for sale! Wilson FG Tour V6 4-PW+GW. They've been used sparingly and are in very good shape. The 7 iron and PW did get the most use on the range and show more wear than the other irons as you can tell in the photos. They accept .355" taper tip shafts.

  9. MIURA DEBUTS MB001 IRONS Company's First New Blade in Six Years Himeji, Japan - Miura Golf, the Japanese maker of the world's finest forged golf clubs, has introduced its first new blade iron in six years. The MB001 muscleback will join the Tournament Blade and the Series 1957 Small Blade in the Miura catalog of top-quality forged blade irons. The MB001 features sole refinements that help it travel effortlessly through turf. A cleanly shaped top line helps form the look better players prefer, as do both a graceful flow through the transition area from hosel to clubface and an overall compactness. The irons' more upright appearance at address helps players feel secure standing over the ball, allowing them to swing away with confidence. And clear, striking graphics provide the elite finish that golfers have come to expect from Miura. "We don't automatically bring out a new blade every year, so this is a big event," says Adam Barr, president of Miura . "The only calendar we operate on is the one in the minds of the Miuras. When they say a club is ready, we go. The MB001 contains the benefits of all the lessons we have learned in watching irons perform, since the Tournament Blade came out in 2007 and the Small Blade arrived in 2006. Players will notice the quality right away." The MB001 design is the result of years of study and careful consideration of iron performance by the Miura family. The project was led by Yoshitaka Miura, eldest son of founder Katsuhiro Miura and a club-grinding expert who learned under his father. He heeded the advice of his brother Shinei, who supervises forging operations at the company's factory in Himeji, Japan, as well as his father. The iron is crafted with intelligent shaping. The sole's shape and size -- subtly adjusted from successful designs of earlier models -- gets through the turf more efficiently and gives the player a better chance of keeping the clubface square at impact. In a properly fitted MB001, the sole delivers a consistently sized, crisp divot that is evidence of a solid, efficient strike. Its top line is narrow, and visually reveals the strength and substance of the clubface at address. It presents a simple, clean look that reduces distraction and promotes confidence. The flow of steel from the hosel to the low-offset clubhead is smooth, elegant and non-reflective. Yoshitaka-san took a lot of time to get this right, and also focused carefully on the relationship of the toe and heel so that they look harmonious as a whole. The MB001 clubhead is nearly the same length heel-to-toe as the Tournament Blade, and like that club, offers plenty of "face space" without looking overly long. At address, the MB001 gives a more upright aspect to the golfer. Without feeling cramped, the player feels closer to the ball, able to see all of it without needing to adjust away from a comfortable head position. This better view of the ball lends pre-stroke confidence. And in the classic Miura way, the back of the clubhead is uncrowded, simple and designed for striking beauty. Less means a great deal more. Miura authorized dealer/fitters around the world will have the MB001 for customers to hit (and be fitted for) by the first week of November. While shaft and other fitting options may make prices vary, the suggested retail per club is $235 and $250 for certain models of upgraded shafts (Other premium shafts may increase the overall price. Regional market and currency differences around the world may also affect the retail price per club). To find an authorized Miura dealer/fitter, click here. http://www.miuragolf.com/find-dealers.asp.
