Getting new irons this Saturday

Great write up, sounds like what I did two weeks ago with a similar out come. Except I went down the GI line of clubs and came out with the JPX900 hot metals. I did hit clubs from Taylormade, Ping, Callaway and Titleist as well but the Mizunos gave me the best numbers and feel. It also helped that I love the look of the whole JPX 900 line of irons.

Oh and I ended up with XP95 R300 shafts.

Darn I didn't swing and Taylormade irons. Honestly they were never on my radar. I don't know how why I forgot about them, I love my M2 driver and M1 hybrids. But I am done with club purchasing for awhile. Time to put my money back into playing

I can't wait to see all the stage 1 reviews. Those irons really are sweet looking.

 

Most of the irons I hit I like the looks of. The G400s were the only ones I saw that made me wonder if I could get used to them. And the Srixon Z565s where stunning.

 

I still am thinking about what to do with my wedges. Forged set is PW 44 and GW 48. I won't take the 56 out so I guess I need a 52. Do people play two gap wedges?

I would figure out what type of yardage gap you are getting between the 44 and 48.  If it's only 10 yards, you could bend the 48 to 49 and then go GW, 54, 59 or so.

 

Without bending I would probably just go 48/54/60

Good call, I'll wait till I can play a round or two, then take them to a buddy who has a lie and loft machine and see what degrees they are at. I have heard Mizunos are pretty true to what the put on the website but I have heard crazy stories of people getting their iron and they are 2-3 degrees off.

I'm trying out Mizuno's, Titleist, Srixon, TM, Cobra and maybe a few others this morning.

Found a Golf Shop that has a pretty good selection of LH fitting components.

Awesome, hope you have fun.

 

I played for the first time with my new irons and did not play well. Not the new irons fault just my own. I was trying to play my new distances (these new iron are one club stronger) so mentally it feels off trying to hit an 8 irons as far as I once hit a 7. So I was swinging too hard and my tempo was off.

 

I'll play again on Sunday and hopefully have some better news.

Well I did it ! Not sure how but ended up with new irons, Ping G400.

All the clubs that I likeed the looks AP1, Mizuno Hot Metal, TM, Ping i200 I had a different problem with each. Height or distance or lack angle etc.

The G400 gave me a bit more distance and better trajectory.

 

Of course I also picked up a Ping G driver. The driver worked out pretty good as they had an assortment of shafts to try while I was still in the bay with all the electronic stuff!!

It's only money

 

Some of the other irons I wanted to try weren't available now or yet in Left Hand.

There's always that "break in" time frame. It'll work out.

That's awesome.   Those are such good irons.  I actually hit a demo in them during my JPX900 Fitting and it went high and straight....if you like those kind of things...ha

Congratulations on the new sticks. How did you like the sound the g400s made? It kind of reminded me of the sound early hybrids made.

Must be me but the sound wasn't a distraction. I was focused on height and distance. Mizzys were a disappointment for me. I wasn't able to get a decent height, probably my poor butt swing. I think I'm too steep.

All in all a good , but expensive morning.

Wow I had the opposite when I tried all the Irons. The Mizzys flew high and strong with a lovely little draw. I tried the Ping G irons and they felt great but didn't perform for me. I haven't had a chance to hit the G400s yet but they look great. So from one lefty to another congrats on the new clubs and I hope they bring you many birdies and even more pars!!

I loved the look and feel of the Mizzys and tried a number of shafts but couldn't put it together. The G400 felt great.

Everybody swing is different yours is probably right in for the Mizuno's. Hard to find LH clubs to try.

Very hard to find LH clubs to try, we had a G400 fitting day yesterday at my local range and he didn't have a single LH club. they hadn't arrived in time :(. I was looking forward to trying the three woods.
