  1. 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 ;).
  2. The set up T100s: 7-48* T200: 4,5,6 Project X LZ 6.5 (x-flex) 125g 2* upright Tour velvet. T100s (7,8,9,P,G) I was first drawn to the T100s because these irons look so freaking clean. I had no intention of buying a set, I just wanted to try and hit a club that I thought was out of my league. What I found however, was a relatively forgiving and extremely fun to hit set. To clarify, when I say forgiving, I don't mean your miss hits will be knocking down flags, and I don't mean your chunked shots will still be pin high. What I DO mean, is
  3. Hello forum members. I wonder if you can help me with an iron issue. I got a new set of AP-3 irons two years ago and (believe it or not) just realized the swingweight feels way too light - no head feel compared to a couple of friends' irons - Mizuno EZ/graphite and Srixon 565/steel. I know it's not precise, but using an online tool and carefully weighing and measuring my irons I came up with a consistent swingweight of C8 for them; the Titleist website indicates they should be D2 (not specified iron or graphite). My shafts are Mitsubishi Tensei CK red. I know some other iron man
  4. So I recently had 2 fittings: T100 Pw-6 + T200 5-4 w/ px 6.0 T100S Pw-4 w/ px 6.0 + 50* SM8 w/ px 6.0 The T100 5-4 irons are the same lofts as the T200 6-5 irons. Would the T200 6-5 irons 0.50" longer fit the gap better than the T200 5-4 bent? Obviously it would be so weird having two 6 irons but I am just curious if anyone has tested this at all? Or would bending the T200 5-4 irons be a better option? Another option would obviously be to just go with the stronger lofted T100S so that the T200 fits in easier or just go full T100S, I just don't nee
  5. I golfed with a gentleman today who claimed that golf shafts "wear out" and need to be replaced every 4 years (assuming 50 rounds per year). Can anyone (equipment junkies, club builders, club fitters, etc.) please chime in with your thoughts on this? Is this a valid claim?
  6. So I am a pretty high handicapper, i play to about a 15. However, I like the look of more traditional irons. I would say my irons aren't really the issue with my game and I hit them relatively consistent and far (7 iron goes 175-180) but I play game improvement irons with strong lofts. Any suggestions for irons that aren't super blocky but still offer a little forgiveness?
  7. Shankster and PING Blueprint Irons---A Match Made in Heaven? Every so often we do a special review of a club on MGS. Usually it's when the OEM provides us with one set or one driver etc for review, it's not practical to open it up to over 500 to 1,000 applications and pick just one person. So when the Blueprint review was generously offered by PING with the stipulation it went to a member who was a true low single digit handicap, we discussed as a group who would be an ideal member to reach out to test these beauties. Honestly at least half a dozen names came to mind, but some of
  8. Just reading the Title makes me smile. I was fitted over 10 years ago and ended up with S300 shafts. I am getting myself a birthday gift and new irons are on the list. I am going to go hit a bunch of irons in a couple of weeks and looking for a little direction with new shafts. My swing speed and overall swing is the same but I am now seeing other options like Nippon or KBS. I hit the ball mid to high with my irons so just trying to get a feel of what would be on par with the S300.
  9. This review coincided with the National D7 Challenge that Wilson Staff ran through the first 3 months of the season. To be eligible for the testing, forum members had to go to a Wilson Demo Day or local golf store and demo the D7 iron and see how much distance they gained. As a result the selected members received a full set of D7 irons. This testing is also a milestone for MGS of sorts as it marks the first official club test for our women members. So we're excited to have a couple of them chiming in on what we are sure will be some very helpful and insightful reviews. T

  11. Cobra F6 irons for sale. 4 through to Gap Wedge $550 for the set. Location: Newmarket, Ontario Im looking at going to the Cobra One Length, only reason for the switch.
  12. I have never been fit for irons. I’m using 10 year old cobra s2 max irons. I’m an 8.5 handicap. For those that have gotten new irons and been fit for them. How much lower have your scores been? Have you truly noticed a big difference? I have kind of believed that I could learn to hit anything but I’d love to hear some people’s actual results from getting fit.
  13. Lynx Golf announced it's return to the US Market earlier this year. To help spread the word, Lynx offered up 4 sets of it's Black Cat and 4 sets of it's Prowler VT irons to testers of tMYGolfSpy. These testers will be sharing their thoughts with you on everything regarding these irons. They'll begin with a bio of themselves and their games so you can see which tester might most resemble your playing ability and some initial thoughts on the looks of the clubs fresh out of the boxes from the UK. Over the next six weeks or so, they will be returning to the thread to share their th
  14. Earlier this Spring (obviously) I went through a wonderful fitting to get new irons. I'll give some background on this in a bit here but I went in with no preconceptions of what I should buy other than some historical preferences and experiences. Ultimately, my fitter and I decided that going for a split/combo set was the best option to put me in a chance to succeed out on the course. I've only played a little bit since my new clubs arrived in the mail (again, obviously) but luckily I live 700 yards from the center of the first green of our local muni so I have had a chance to hit them quite a
  15. Hey I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions on a X flex graphite iron shaft? I'm looking at getting something a little softer on my wrists (have a few issues going on there). Wondering what success anyone has had with graphites in a top end players club ie. Mizuno Mp20 etc. Looking forward to hearing from you all
  16. I am looking to find an upgrade in the iron department. as a college student I can't go out and break the bank on shiny new compact irons. I'd like some opinions on cost effective options with in the price range of under 800$. i was considering a set of ben hogan PTX pros. I am looking for something with a compact shape, minimal offset, and a reasonable top line. to keep it short I want to have solid feel but have a tad bit of help. Love to get some good opinons.
  17. Hey Everybody, I'm looking at getting a new set of irons this summer. I've been playing with an old set of TaylorMade Burners for the last 12+ years. Handicap is about 18 and interested to hear what you all have to say for the best recommendation for an upgrade. Thanks
  18. Congrats to our selected testers! Go here to see the official review: Testers Wanted (2) T100-S and (2) T200 Titleist Irons What better way to get our minds off of all the troubles in the world these days than a good iron testing. Well at MyGolfSpy, we don’t do good, we do MIND BLOWING--You Can Not Be Serious testings!! And that’s what we have here! When Titleist introduced its new T Series irons last fall, it included pretty much everything you’d expect from Titleist, all neatly arranged—T100, T200 and T300. The T100 fit the accomplished amateur and many
  19. Testers Wanted (4) Ping G710 Irons Nothing like getting the official start of the MyGolfSpy Forum testing season off to a grand start with a set of irons that follow one of the most successful irons in the recent history of PING. When launched in the spring of 2018 the G700 irons caught golfers by surprise. They were different in almost every way from any iron PING had produced. And they performed, boy did they perform. Now, as is typical for PING, two years later they've launched the new version: the G710 irons. The most noticeable visual difference is the stunning stealth black fin
  20. First post here but lots of good sales elsewhere. Faces look unused- 9 holes and a bit of indoor under their belt. A couple of superficial bag marks, slight tee indents on sole of 7, and minor chatter mark on top line of 8 but for all intents and purposes these are close to new.

  21. Hey All! Just a general question! Love the most wanted reviews, great level of detail, and great visualizations via Tableau for all the data collected. Out of curiosity tho, is it a bit odd that for Players' Iron category, that out of all thousands of data points collected that the 7-irons that the Total spin numbers generally hover around the low to mid 4000s. I know the numbers don't have to be 6000s to 7000s RPMs for 7 iron, but would it be fair to say that the 4000 RPM number is generally low, and potentially inflate numbers? Is this a function of low club head speed, is it is a
  22. I'm curious how many are playing steel vs. graphite shafts on their irons/hybrids? I've never considered graphite and my most recent fittings (fitters) never mentioned that as an option. One of the guys in our group just purchased a set of G410's with graphite shafts. He's 62, in great shape, roughly a 30 handicap, and generates high club head speed. I asked why he got the graphite shafts and he said that was what the fitter recommended. What are the key reasons for choosing one vs. the other?
  23. For months now there has been talk of the upcoming G710 irons an update to the ultra successful G710 irons released in 2017. One of the best looking game improvement irons on the market, how could PING improve on them. Well read and SEE below for yourself. PING introduces G710 distance iron with Arccos Caddie Smart Grips PHOENIX (January 20, 2020): In the new G710 irons, PING engineers deliver golfers more distance and forgiveness in a sleek, dark finish, PING President John K. Solheim announced today. The new irons are available for custom fitting and pre-order at auth
  24. For those interested in the Players Distance category, Golfworks' Maltby line has just released their first option to the category in the TS-2 Forged. To me the design looks a bit similar to the Cobra Forged Tec Black with it's small cavity and with each head selling for $49.99 it seems like a potentially great lower priced option. Also of note, it sounds like a Blade version, like the P790, is in the works and hopefully will become available sometime this summer. Here is the overview of the TS-2 directly from Golfworks.com Overview The Maltby TS-2 forged irons were designed to enh
  25. When it comes to PING many things come to mind, quality, engineering, performance and irons are among the first things most people will think of. And with the release earlier this year of the G410 irons, PING has hit on each one of those characteristics. Following the huge success of the G400 irons, PING has hit a home run with the striking black and red colors of this iron, as well as a being a bit more streamlined in all the right places. PING has achieved the rare feat of providing an iron that has a profile appealing to even the most discerning of golfers, but yet still offering
