The one thing I don’t recall is whether they get cut to longer length than steel or not. In the past graphite used to be longer and it’s not something I looked into with the ust after my visit to their HQ in 2016 and then playing them on and off there. Some of the details we covered in our visit have slipped the old memory bank. I want to say they are the same length as steel tho

 

I noted that on my build specs and asked my TS fitter about it.  He said the +1/2" graphite = standard steel is no longer the baseline in most cases and largely dependent on which iron head is used.

Cool. That’s what I thought. I don’t do my own builds so something I paid much attention to once I left ust hq years ago

On the fence between Sub70 2 hybrid or 3w. My 3h from them goes as far as my 3w on some shots so I may just go 2h and ditch my xr16 3w

I've loved to browse this thread since getting here.

There's so much fun stuff to consider.

And yet, if I were to be honest, there hasn't been any REAL NEED for me to consider anything new in equipment for decades.

The manufacturers thrive because we men are simply oversized boys who buy more expensive toys anytime that we're  given the opportunity.  It's in our DNA.

Even then, they don't all thrive.

Dunlop, First Flight, Kenneth Smith, Lynx, MacGregor, PowerBilt, Ram. Spalding, Tommy Armour, Walter Hagen and several others aren't still thriving even with us on the loose.

Meanwhile, Callaway, Cobra, Mizuno, Ping, TaylorMade, Titleist, Wilson, and others remain to tempt us into divorce court vulnerability with their shiny new offerings.

Not much of a story. Doing some training, hit one shot sounded funny. Setup hit a second and sounded worse. So put it down and saw a cracked crown. Taking it to the shop and looks like Callaway may replace it or repair?

Oh it's a Epic Sub Zero OG

I like a lob wedge with low enough bounce to hit from the parking lot asphalt.

My present one, which is great on full shots, doesn't fit that description.

AND, I don't hit that many full-shot lob wedges.  

Who can recommend what?

Vokey offers a 4 degree bounce in their 60, I don't think you could get much less than that.

@BostonSal the Cobra wedges with the 4* Wide-Low grind option sit tight to the ground too.  The width adds a touch of forgiveness.

Got it.  58-04 and 60-04, both good clubs, but the 58-04 is no longer made in the SM8 line.

I play the 58/4 but they stopped making that with the SM6. I am trying to track down ones so I have backups if they don't bring it back.

They stopped making it with the SM7.  They may have discontinued it before the end of the SM7 production run, but I have  an SM7   58-04.    It could have been from early in the run.    Very good finesse wedge and very hittable [albeit not exceptionally forgiving ]  on full shots.

After playing really poorly my last outing, I was thinking about going mega Game Improvement Irons. Saw these Tour Edge EXS 220H irons at RBG for under $71 an iron. 
Looking here and on YouTube for reviews is pretty shocking. There was 1 mention I could find here, and all of zero thorough reviews on YouTube. Guess I'll keep waiting for my Sub 70 demos to show up.

Tiger is the GOAT, change my mind.

Irons and driver shafts.

Traded in pxg irons and proto driver Saturday to tinker with the tsi2 driver. Initial thought is to put my custom ef blue in it for now and finish out the season that way and then test with a new shaft next season. The options are. Ad iz, ventus red, atmos tz5 or 6, la golf or the new ust Lin-q blue(based on shirt conversation with ust’s tour rep)

For irons main ponder is pxg 0211 st. Others are t100-s with t200 4i, p790 zx5/7 combo or all zx5.

Hit the epic speed 3w at DGS. I could elevate it. Was nice. Too low spin. Everything was hooky. I think I could get away with a max 3w. 
 

rolled EVNROLL er2 ( was soft but rolled nice) axis1. (Looked funky but the ball had legs) and a Scotty fastback (don’t get the hype). 
 

so thinking max 3w and still wanting to try a LAB.

Received notification from another forum that I won the new King Tec Hybrid of my choice! I had to send-in a custom and stock option. The original message said anything custom, then they sent a second email saying send stock as well, just-in-case.

Asked for the 2 with AD-DI 105 X for custom, and stock comes with MMT.

With what’s been happening here with CCC, I’m curious to see if I get the club before 2022!
