What equipment are you thinking about?

A comment was made to me a long time ago: “Play irons that will still help you on your worst day.” With the way these new G425 irons look, and how much I LOVED my Ping Zing 2 irons years ago, I’m really pondering a shift to irons that are more forgiving. If I can hit more greens, I can score better! 
Not sure it will happen, but I’d love to try it and see....

Funny story, I was at GG last weekend waiting to hit the the Demo T400 they had just gotten in.  The sales rep goes to the guy in line before me and asks what can he help him with.    Customer: "

Picked up a set of these today (4-10) with the Vizard Graphite shaft.  At 85gr,  the shafts may be a little light,  but I wanted to give graphite a try.  Gotta figure out gapping for the bag;  even th

Had the shop build me up this from the Callaway demo cart while I was at the range today -

Numbers looked pretty good with range balls, and I really liked the MMT, though I think I'd go up to the 105 if I could for a bit more weight:

This was more of an experiment to try out the MMT than anything else, but, man, did this thing feel pretty nice.

I’m in the market for new irons and a new driver

The Srixon ZX series is high on my list as well as the new Callaway Apex irons and the PXG 0211’s

Drivers are up in the air right now

Cleveland Zipcore wedges. Looks like I can get them with custom shafts to match my irons. Very tempted.

Thinking about a different utility iron.  I switched my MP 18 SC 4 iron for the MP 20 HMB that I thought might be a little more forgiving, but have found that I really do not hit it as well.  Even though it was the top dog on the MGS list, i find that I tend to hook the ball with this club.   Normal shot shape is a slight fade so it's puzzling to me.  

Considering either different shaft or maybe a Srixon ZU85 that can be found for around $90 bucks from Global Golf for a lefty.  Not sure yet, may go to the club and have them look at lie of it first.  Possibly it's way too upright?

... 👍  Pretty much a different way of saying something I have been preachin' for many years now "Play the most forgiving irons you can effectively play". That statement means different things to different players.

... Tiger needs complete control of every shot he hits moving the ball right or left and low or high, so effectively his most forgiving irons are MB's. He of course is in a very, very rare class of players. I played with the #1 D1 player on his team in Orlando looking to make it on tour and he played Titleist CB's because they gave him the control he needed with some added forgiveness that he figured saved him at least 2 shots or more every round. Other low index players can play a multi material players iron that still allows control of ball flight but does not move the ball quite as much as MB's or CB's with just a hint of forgiveness but that also means a slight face error at contact will not curve as much away from the target and of course provides even more forgiveness. For me the King Tours and T100S fall into this category. 

... Then you move into GI and SGI irons and depending on how you play, they may be perfect for your game even if you are a low index player. Knowing your miss is key to choosing the right irons and of course if your miss is everywhere on the face and all over the course, you need the most forgiving irons you can get your hands on. 

Edit: As Pmookie is contemplating above, a split set can be ideal for a wide range of players, especially much more forgiving long irons. Thankfully most OEMs are offering irons designed to be mixed and matched starting with blade like short irons, more forgiving players like mid irons and GI long irons.

Believe it or not... I am really liking the looks of the new Callaway stuff...

Namely, the whole line up really.  
 

Not sure what changed my mind, but I’m eyeing one of the OG putters.

Looking forward to hearing what you go with.

I'm, as usual, looking at the new drivers this year. TSi2 after reading some nice feedback in the official review thread, and with my personal experience playing the fairways. RAD XB because the Cobras always perform well for people in the CCC.

I just texted the Honma rep again and I think I’m going to just order the 6 & 7 of the Tour P iron, maybe through the 8. I love my Tour P 4/5 irons, and I hit them very well, so there’s really no need to replace those.

I think I'm going to have to take a drive down to RI to check out the D9 line. Hearing that the driver head is 30g heavier than the D7, combined with a heavier shaft makes me really want to try it out. Oh and the irons too because I am such a homer 😄

I think one of these is going to be installed on the putter soon.

I LOVED the Pistolero I had on my Newport and the nice full top hand.  The Evnroll Pistol has been fine for the past year, but I’m ready to go ahead and grab one of these.  I’ll probably go 104cc, but TBH the 140cc felt pretty damn good too.  I might just have to see if they can blow them on so I can try both before deciding.  

I think I got a chance to look at every pistol putter grip except the Iomic Classic mid... or something like that.  Nothing else came close to the Pistolero’s pronounced top like this SNSR contour.

Recently got one of these and installed it and whoa...what an eye opener. Never had so many putts start and stay on line. Really does work and help keep the face square at impact.
