OK, I have to put new irons on the back burner for a bit until I can get a more glaring issue resolved. Playing yesterday, it became overly obvious that I have a definite gap issue near the top of my bag, and it's killing me. Has been for some time now, but it was a painful exercise every time I faced with an approach shot in the range of  170-190. This should be covered with my 4-iron. But I must have some stupid mental block with that damn thing and couldn't hit it to save my a**!!!! Gotta get a hybrid, cross-over iron or maybe even a 7-w working, cuz that range is just no joy for me...[emoji30]


Cleveland Launcher HB 4 iron will solve your problem. You can purchase as an individual club for $99.95. You’re welcome!

... Imo there is really only one reason to use a long iron instead of  hybrid. Especially since hybrids come in all shapes and sizes like a Srixon U85 iron like hybrid or a F9 wood like hybrid and shapes in-between the two. They are more forgiving, launch higher and almost always produce more distance. I still use a 4 iron because I am more accurate than I am with a hybrid.  When the time comes and I feel comfortable using a hybrid, I am sure practice and confidence will allow me to be as accurate as I am with long irons now, but that is down the road a few years. I hope. 😉  I compare most Am mens game to the LPGA and most have hybrids in their bags as opposed to long irons.

Thanks Bud! Indeed I am open to suggestions despite my self-imposed world of PING. I hear an awful lot of good things about these and will definitely give one a test drive-Cheers!

The new G410 hybrids are pretty effin' nice. With the lie angle adjustments I think they'll fit a lot more golfers, especially those who have a difficult time not hitting hybrids left (me). They're definitely on my testing list.

Oh man. 🤤 I have been drooling over the 5.5 since pics started surfacing. Just can’t justify that price tag especially with the Indy rolling so well.

Haven’t picked it up (yet). But the feel and weight of it is fantastic. If I didnt’ have so many putters right now...I may ponder it a little more haha

Can't wait to see who gets to test these beauties!
These pics are from a shop I was at a while back and just loved the feel of the club.  The weighting is darn near perfect and it is super stable.

I like the way these look, I just wish the shaft was black all the way down. Other than that, these are gorgeous putters.

Thinking about picking up super speed after reading the reviews. Had it once and ended up selling it, which I regret st the moment.

Seriously. I have this in my cart right now... I’d love to find it a little less expensive. But then I try to put it in perspective, would I give up 2.5 rounds of golf this year to potentially gain 5-10% swing speed.... that’s not as hard of a decision. Lol

On top of that, I’ve been eyeing new (or newer) drivers over my G30.

And of course I’m looking at the stroke lab putters in hopes of getting a chance to review one.

I will prob order the super speed training today, and maybe a new driver after I’ve had a chance to see the gains.

I'm liking mine so far. Did some grinding on Saturday on the practice greens for an hour. The feel is nice but I can't quantify if it's "more stable" than my ER2 was. The flow neck definitely helps my stroke personally, I almost don't miss left at all anymore. I'm tempted to go down to 32" but I can't find any info on whether or not the weights are changeable. I don't want it to throw the balance off because I like the swingweight right now.

Do it. DOOOOOOOOO ITTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT.

 

Personally, thinking about demo-ing a G410 4H and ditching my 4i, and some wedges. I'm contemplating going with a set gap wedge like a 919 Forged or something. I rarely ever use my 52 for anything other than full shots and I feel like I'm not compatible with TT shafts that almost every wedge comes in stock

As others have already mentioned, I would love to try the stroke lab putters from odyssey. I handled one in a golf course pro shop and man they are very well balanced and look great as well.
