Straight-up plain-Jane G400?

Straight-up plain-Jane the O.G.-400, with a stiff-flex Alta 55.  Hoping that shaft isn't too spinny, but ready to let it fly!

Also, I'd let you borrow my Aldila Tour Blue shaft that has a G400 tip on it if you wanna try it out. I have not yet put a G410 tip on it so it's available for you if you want. I also have weights of varying sizes...Just let me know.

Mizuno JPX919 Hot Metal irons!
Was back at the Golf Shop different guys working the cages. Somehow after talking a bit I started hitting a few balls Callaway Rogue and was OK but not good enough to get excited. Then went through M6, Big Bertha and realized the Mizuno LH Demo was returned finally and they set it up. Kinda liked it, a lot. Long story but tried all kind of shafts and was really impressed with the Project X LZ Tour 5.0 was working great.

I grabbed a Rogue 3W off of CPO. Wanted a lower trajectory and "oooo doggie" does the x-flex Matrix Black Tie 75M4 provide that in this clubhead?!

Rainy day, grip somewhat compromised so jury is still out on real world results.

But yeah, it hit low today.

Had some time this morning so I dropped by my local golf shop and was browsing through the used club section and found these.    Would have preferred if they were the 5 series,  but you never know what you will find in a used shop.   Only a few dings, doesn't look like they were played much, and they had my preferred KBS Tour 120 shafts so I gave them a whirl and hit them well.    I traded in my backup set and got 5-AW for an additional $100. 

Thinking about gaming only 6-AW and replacing the 5 with another hybrid.

Working with the fitter on the correct shaft made all the difference. Current irons are senior shafts Mizuno will be regular. Current irons never felt right to me and I’m thinking it was the shaft. We’ll see in a few weeks. But the Mizzie felt just right and the numbers were better than anything else.

... "the correct shaft made all the difference" Amen my man. As I said in another thread I bought some Modus 105's that should have been a perfect fit and they were just awful for me. Felt too stiff, too heavy and launched too high. Went back to my Recoil Proto's and everything was good, using the same heads. Looking forward to hearing how they treat you. I think Hot Metals are some of the best GI irons out today. Ymmv ...

The shaft/grip combo with no up charge Mizuno offers is incredible. I wasn’t shopping price just what felt good. This particular fitter (kid) had a lot of patience with me and EXPLAINED everything he was doing and that helped. I’m touchy, feely but I do want to know the thought process. Not sure if that makes sense, maybe an ole fart thing.

Nice find! I hit the 585 and loved them and had similar success with the Hot Metal Pros. I’m thinking combo set keeping the Cleveland Launchers in the 4-6 and going with something more accurate in the others.

True Linkswear had a nice little 20% off sale a couple weeks back. Just tried these on for the first time tonight and they’re nice. Looking to give them a test run this week.

And testing is over these will win.
