  1. Hi. High handicap still beginner here. I've been playing for about a year. Based in Singapore where it's pretty complicated to have access to "proper" courses. I've still managed to play about once or twice a week on 9 holes executive courses in the recent months. I was originally playing with an old second hand a set with a yes putter + marumam D W4 H4 5-SW (no P or GW) irons + a bag for 35 sgd total. For that price I don't regret the purchase After that I got a fitting with titleist for my irons, which was an amazing experience, about 4 months ago after my coach told me it was time to move away from my old second hand clubs. The rest of the bag is made of random purchases. Especially the maltby clubs. I bought them from golfworks after getting fitted for the irons and the tsi1 hybrid. I've tried to pick a shaft that would be similar to the one of my fitting. I regret a bit not going with the lighter version shafts in general. I think I was too focused on keeping a similar trajectory/launch. Currently WITB Inesis 900 golf ball. It's supposed to be a high flight high speed ball. I probably lose some distance. But given that I don't launch very high I think I'm fine with the tradeoff. Also it's so much cheaper than other balls here. 35sgd for 12 balls vs 80sgd for a box of pro v1 or anything similar. Even Balls like a titleist tour speed cost over 60sgd the box. Yes Robin putter. It's not super forgiving, but I'm used to it. LW SM8 58.14 K grind, Nippon 950 GH (Regular). It was recommended during my fitting because of where I play, with a lot of cow grass. Also using it in bunkers. It's probably too expensive for what I do with the club. But it feels nice 7-SW titleist t300 irons (the old gen, not the one just released) with Mitsubishi Tensei AV Blue AM2 (Stiff) soft step twice, 2 degrees upright lie. Also got them after a fitting. It made such a huge difference with the previous irons, it killed a lot of my slice and highly reduced the dispersion. Very happy. I was told not to go with a 6i because I'm not flying the ball high enough at this point TSi1 7 hybrid (29 set at 28) with Mitsubishi TSi Tensei AV Blue Raw 65 HYB (Stiff). I love it. It launches super well. Easy to hit. Can use it everywhere. But damn it is expensive. It was also recommended during the fitting. Maltby KE4 Tour TC Hybrid 5 with tensei ck blue hybrid 80g stiff. I regret buying this one. I think I went with a shaft that is too heavy or not too much loft. It is not much longer than the tsi1. So I seldom use it. Maltby KE4 TC HyWay 23 degrees with stiff MRC Kuro Kage Black HBP 60 (67g). I don't use that club very often. Most of the time It's either I have enough distance to cover and I'll go with the 5W. Or it's narrow and short and I will fallback to a hybrid. But it's nice when I'm in something fluffy. I think I would have been more comfortable with the lighter shaft when on the course in weird situation or lie. I didn't really realise what would be the weight and the difference of feeling between a tee shot and a recovery on the course. Maltby KE4 Tour TC 5 wood 18 degrees with stiff MRC Kuro Kage Black HBP 60 (67g). I love that thing. Flying straight and high. p-avg 200m, carry not too far from 190m. Just feeling comfortable with it. Second hand taylormade m1 2016 12 degrees, regular stock fujikuria shaft. I'm not a huge fan of this club, I feel that it is a bit wobbling. About 215m p-avg, but that's with a lot of roll, I struggle to get that thing in the air.
  2. I got rid of my set gap wedge a while ago, and ended up regretting it. Tried a Maltby DBM gap wedge to fill the set but just doesn't work out for me compared to my 50 deg rtx4. Has a Nippon Modus 120 X flex shaft. Playing length is 36" and lie 62 deg. Also has a GP MCC +4 Grey standard grip. $75 shipped
  3. So i went ahead and pulled the trigger on the TSW wedges. Built 1* flat lie and 1* strong loft. Paired them with the Kinetixx 125 wedge shafts. 52* swingweight at D4 and the 60* at D6. Pics attached to compare to my current wedges. Why Maltby? Well, i replaced my old Titleist 710 cb irons with their TE forged irons and have absolutely loved them. Zero regrets whatsoever. Now it was time to replace wedges. I have been playing Cobra PUR wedges. Fantastic wedges, very soft, easy to manipulate, great spin control around greens. So i hit some Callaways, Ping, Mizuno etc. I just couldn't bring myself to pay what they were asking. In steps Maltby again price wise. Read reviews, looked at pictures etc but i couldn't find one to hit so i took a gamble in thinking their wedges were as good as their irons. The gamble paid off. They came off the fedex truck at 2pm, i was on the course by 3:30 today. Range was closed so just went to the chipping green. i've never owned graphite shafted irons, much less wedges so the first few swings were...different feeling. Plus i had midsize tour velvets put on just to see how i liked them. Verdict still out on the grips but back to the wedges. After hitting a few chips and getting a feel for the grips i stepped back to 30-40 yds to hit some soft pitch shots. Spin was fantastic! Kinetixx claims their shafts generate up to 1500 extra rpm, idk how true that is but the wedges definitely had some bite to them. They felt amazing, honestly. The heads felt soft, no weird clicky sounds, distance control was spot on and flighting them up or down was not an issue. I was initially worried about the sole width compared to my PURs. Behind the ball i couldn't tell at all. There is a slight noticeable offset compared to the cobras but not enough to turn me off. On to the course...had the course pretty much to myself so i took a half dozen Prov1s from 120 and 100 yds each to hit some full shots. Dispersion was as tight as what i was hitting with my cobras ,within 30' of pin from 120, 52*, within 20' with the 60* and flighting/shaping full shots were easier with these than with my cobras which was a very nice surprise. Drawing the 52* into the flag under the wind was very easy to do and i'm assuming that slight offset helped in that regard. Fading it into flags was easier to control than my cobras. Distance control was incredible though. All full shots from both wedges were all within 1 yard of each other distance wise. Given that this is the first time i've hit these i'm still finding it hard to believe so i'm just going to say my wedge game was just money today lol. The shafts specify they are for low/mid trajectory. I found this to be accurate but it wasn't a problem to hit high soft shots with either wedge. The shafts definitely are a new feeling to me. They felt great don't get me wrong but it was a very noticeable difference from playing steel shafts. They were very responsive, they felt great, i ordered stiff and they feel stiff, they look awesome i think and all in all i'm very happy with the setup and intend on adding the 56* as well in the near future. They perfromed very well from burnt out very tight fairway lies and from the rough. The sole width and turf interaction was noticeably different but not in a bad way. The sole is simply wider but i didn't feel uncomfortable or nervous at all opening the face on tight lies. The leading edge stays pretty close to the turf when the face is opened up. So if any of you are looking into getting new wedges and you don't want to break the bank, i would highly recommend you to consider Maltby. Quality, pricing, fast delivery and you can get them custom built to whatever spec you like. Total cost, plus shipping for BOTH wedges as per the specs i wanted was $191. Can't beat that for two brand new forged wedges.
  4. Brand new to the forum, tried the search function but couldn't find what i was looking for, my apologies. I was hoping to get some information on the Malty tour grind wedges. Currently gaming cobra PUR wedges, i have absolutely loveeed these wedges, but alas, it's time to replace them and ever since i replaced my iron set ( titleist 710 cb) with the maltby te forged i have been extremely curious about their wedges. The irons are money. I freaking love my irons! So now i'm highly considering the wedges, specifically the tour grinds because they seem to be the closest in profile to my current wedges. Also considering the Kinetixx wedge shafts. The only reviews i can find on them seem to be on the golfworks website though. Can't find any videos on youtube etc about their wedge shafts, specifically. So if any of you good folks have gamed, are gaming these, i would love to hear what you have to say. TSW wedges would be my 2nd choice of their wedges.

  6. I received these wedges a few weeks ago from the Golfworks, and I thought I better post something since I had asked for opinions about them in another thread. I'll do my best to make this as real of a review as possible. I ordered 54-degree mid-sole and 60-degree wide sole M+ Series wedges with regular shafts from Golfworks for my birthday. I have completely rebuilt my bag over the past few months. Prior to owning these wedges, I only played with a 50-degree gap wedge from my old iron set and a 56-degree Nike SV Tour wedge that was almost exclusively used for flop type shots. The gap wedge in my Wilson C300 irons is 48 degrees, so these fit in six-degree increments from my irons. These were part of what Golfworks calls "Club Paks," which are grips, shafts, ferrules and heads sold for cheaper than the individual component cost. They also come with free assembly if you so desire. I opted for free assembly as I don't have my golf workshop fully setup (or even stocked!) yet. Golfworks offers three different sole widths (tour, mid, wide) from 50 degrees to 62 degrees in two degree increments. The packs offer a choice of regular or stiff shaft and undersize, standard, midsize or oversize grip. The package I purchased included the wedge head, a KBS Hi-Rev 2.0 regular flex wedge shaft, ferrule and a standard Lamkin Crossline grip. Each package cost $52.99. For two wedges, with taxes and shipping, I paid $123.99 total, or about $62 each. First, some pictures for those interested. Please note these pictures were taken after an indoor range session. The ball marks were not there when purchased! Customer Service and Shipping I placed the order in mid-January, requesting free assembly and the clubs to be assembled to +1/2" from the Golfworks standard. The C300s are +1/2" from standard Golfworks lengths as well, so by opting to make the wedges a little longer they fit into the C300 lengths. Almost immediately I received a call from someone at Golfworks confirming I was requesting the clubs be built longer than their normal standard. I unfortunately missed this call and neglected to check my voicemail for more than a week. Whoops. Thankfully, within the next week someone else reached out to me and this time I caught the message. After calling to confirm the length, I also received a follow up email confirming my build specs. On this email I was able to request the grip be placed logo up and the shaft label to be placed logo down. Once the order was released to the club builders, it took only a day or two for it to ship Priority Mail, and then just another two days to receive the clubs. The clubs were securely packaged in transport and were received in perfect condition. Build Quality These seem to be built very well for the price. The heads look very finished. The black DBM finish Golfworks uses is very nice, and it is supposed to hold up much better than PVD. The grips were put on straight and the Crosslines feel as expected (the C300s come stock with Crosslines as well). Perhaps the only thing I could say is that the ferrules were not buffed to a perfectly smooth surface. Small gripe, I know. Size / Shape / Etc. I don't feel I am overly picky with wedges. The head shape seems traditional, not too big or small, and fits my eye fine. Black finish is matte and shouldn't cause any problems with glare. I opted for the wide sole 60-degree wedge as an "easy to swing" option from the sand or close to the green. You cannot really open the 60-degree up because of the wide sole. Until I can get out on the course and actually play, I don't know how this will affect my use of this club. I do think it will be very nice from thick rough as the wider sole should help keep the club face from being grabbed too much. The mid-sole 54-degree wedge has the perfect sole width for what I envision its use to be -- nearly full swing shots from the fairway. It feels more like my short irons than a "blade-y" wedge. I would probably opt for the mid-sole on the 60-degree wedge if I could go back in time. Feel / Playability I got a chance to hit a few range balls two weekends ago. I don't particularly care for hitting wedges from mats, but I probably hit 10 balls or so with each club. As you may be able to see in the pictures, I had a few poor strikes and a few good ones. The new grooves and milled face definitely shredded some cover off of the balls. I am still working on some swing changes, so there were some ugly hooks mixed in, but I was impressed with the ease of which the Hi-Revs launched and the stopping power. Using the 60-degree wedge I was able to get a ball to stay on the ice-covered 70-yard green, impressive to say the least. I was also able to hit the 54-degree wedge consistent in the 70-100 yard range, which is my expected use case. Because I ordered these +1/2", they come in a little heavier than standard specs. Based on my cheap Golfworks scale, they both are about at D6 swingweight. For comparison, my C300s are D2 across the set. I won't be able to play outdoors for another few weeks at the earliest, but I am excited to get these into real action. Final Thoughts (For now...) I think these are an excellent value for $62, especially given the more expensive shaft option. They do have cheaper "pak" options with this head in the $40 range as well. I doubt there is a ton of reason to spend more on a wedge. Golfworks also routinely runs a free shipping promotion on orders greater than $60, so you can save a couple more dollars by waiting for that as well. My biggest concern at this point is whether the regular flex shafts were too soft of a choice, though I won't know for sure until I get out on the course.
  7. Today @ 4:11pm#1 Considering MMB 17, TE Forged and TS-1s. I hit the ball too low and have an out to in bias that produces toe hits often. I am a 2 but have no ego. I do like less graphics on clubs however and that knocked out TS-2s. I don't love the looks of the TE forged and that will lose in a tie breaker. I want the highest flying, easy to hit club out of the 3 (Seem very close in MPF, could it be for MMBs?? ). Coming from JPX 850 Forged which are surprisingly low on MPF.
  8. 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 enhance playability and distance typically not found in a true forged iron design. Utilizing the most advanced 5 step forging process available, the ST-2 irons feature a hollow 3 piece construction consisting of a thin, 2mm 1025C forged face and 1025C body with an internal tungsten weight positioned low and towards the toe for precise center of gravity locations throughout the set. The #4 iron thru #9 also feature an internal cavity behind the whole club face that is filled with dense polymer to enhance feel and boost the deflection of the thin carbon steel face at impact. Features: True Forged from 1025C Carbon Steel using the most advanced 5 step forging process available Hollow polymer injection filled 3 piece construction Forged titanium face and body with internal tungsten toe weighting to ensure the horizontal cg location is positioned in the center of the club face Injected Polymer produces exceptional sound and feel Thin, forged titanium face increases ball speeds for increased distance CNC milled face ensures face flatness for more consistency Multi-Groove technology places more CNC milled square grooves on the face for improved consistency, trajectory and spin Attractive and durable nickel chrome finish protects the club and enhances feel Progressive offsets to help square the face at impact in the long irons and improve alignment in the short irons. Progressive sole angle (bounce), modern tour leading edge grind and 4 way radius sole provides the optimum turf interaction from a variety of turf conditions. Modern lofts, combined with the optimal vertical cg locations, optimizes trajectory and distance. Universal hosel accepts both .370" parallel tip and .355" taper tip iron shafts. Recommended Ferrule - MA0300 I will also apologize now for the small images of the clubs.
