I had an incident with my bag and a couple wedges were damaged I had some used almost new Cleveland RTX 4 wedges that I got and reshafted I only had 52, 56. So I put them in the bag. These are super smooth to play so now what I want to buy the 3rd wedge. My gaps are such that I need a 50 and bend it to 49. The also need to bend the the others to 53, and 57. I wasn’t sure I would like the RTX-4 but they are good.

I'm in the market for a new bag, I bought mine a few years ago from a Play it Again Sports store when I bought the irons that brought me back to the game. I paid $30 for it and am now looking to replace it. I was on Twitter the other day and saw a post from @GolfSpy Stroker talking about the Sun Mountain C130. After that and a glowing recommendation from @THEZIPR23, I'm leaning that way.

Maltby TSW forged wedges

Thinking about the 58° and 54° to replace my current 60 and 56. The satin finish on these would go perfectly with the W/S F5's

Only bummer is that they're backordered.

They look really nice and I think they mentioned they will be preferable in May. They go cleanly with Maltby's TS1 irons. I have really enjoyed the Tour Grind MG.

Missed out on the mp64s...bidding went way over my budget.

Now thinking about a vintage set.

Have my eyes on Hogan Apex Edge Pro, MacGregor, Srixon i302, etc 

Anyone have any vintage irons that they really like?

I feel like it would be fun to have an older set and have heard that the older Hogans are some of the best feeling forged ever....

Wedges, all wedges. I love my original PING Glides, but I’ve had them for 3 seasons, and the grooves are wearing out. (Not to mention my gapping has changed significantly in those three years.) The Glide 3.0 are obviously top on my list, but I’m gonna start testing them out with an open mind.

Thanks!

I went bargain/vintage hunting yesterday and was able to find 845 Silver Scot, Eye2, mp32....Eye2 are so easy to hit, mp32 had me gushing.

Wish I could find some real vintage stuff like the MacGregor and Hogan

Ha! 

Those 1025m are vintage unicorns.

Those that have them aren't letting them go and if they do they want a pretty penny for them.

They do look spectacular. 🤩

Thinking about going for a shaft only fitting.  My beginner set of clubs all came with Regular flex and I've questioned off and on if I need stiff flex.  Dont have any specifics in mind other than no outrageous pricetag like Fujikura and high end Mitsubishi shafts.  


Driver: Cobra Speedzone 10.5 Mitsubishi AV Blue S flex

Wood: Cobra Bio Cell 3-4 Grafalloy Pro Launch Blue (low launch original version) S flex

Hybrids: Taylormade GAPR 3 KBS graphite shaft

              Strata 4 and 5 hybrids R flex

Irons: Strata 6-PW R flex

Wedges: Texan Classics 52, 56, 60 R flex

Putter: Odyssey Red Ball mallet

Ball: Srixon Q Star Tour

Sounds like a smart thought. If you're interested in graphite iron shafts, take a look at the Recoils. Great shaft at about $25 each. Also the Project X Even Flow series for woods and hybrids can be had for about $110 a piece and are a great shaft if they fit your swing profile.

I can vouch for the Hogan Edge Pro's. I still have them in my holiday bag, couldn't bear to part with them. The Apex 4 shafts are a great fit for me. Hopefully you can find some at a good price. They are such a soft forging you will be able to get lie angles easily adjusted to suit if needed.
