Oh and I get my Irons tomorrow in time for my Saturday round. I don't know if I will sleep tonight!!

Mine came early I was surprised. I just got to get out there and play a few more times and get used to them.

That's great.

I was told 2 weeks for the G400 but usually Ping delivers ahead of schedule.

Great list to try! Make sure you try different shafts in each as can effect the feel. The Srixon irons are amazing but I find the stock shafts to make them feel too heavy.

Well the irons have arrived. I wasn't able to get many good pictures. I was losing light too fast. I can't wait to get back out there on Sunday and swing these things for real. They look, sharp I may have to bust out my professional lighting setup to do them proper justice.(I was planning on doing this once I finish rebuilding my bag and sharing it with you all) My wife may think I have gone mad.

Sooo pretty!!!

 

I used my Hotmetals for the first time today. The feel and flight were wonderful and I really enjoyed playing with them. Also I found the wedge and 9 iron were great for chipping. I did have some issues at the start but once I realized that I had the face closed at address the game changed for the better!!

 

I have been playing with TM Rocketballz prior to this and found that the Hotmetals look at lot smaller behind the ball but I like that! the new clubs also launch the ball a lot higher and the flight is a mile higher than the Rocketballz for me but the ball still carried just as far. I am delighted with the Hotmetals and have no regrets about my purchase.

 

On a side note my partner and I also won the trophy that was being played for in the club comp today :D

Nice - I am just coming from a scouting trip to the story formerly known as Golfsmith. I wanted to see the G400 and the G with my own eyes. I also saw the hot metal and it is on my list.

 

The graphite option is a bit of an issue for me but I notice that this iteration of Project Xs is lighter than what I had previously so perhaps not. I will have to go for a fitting and see what my spin rates, distances and dispersions are.

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

Thanks for the great review and insights.  I just got my JPX900 Hotmetal a week ago and already shot my lowest round to date.  I was gaming the Z745's and was happy with it but the Hotmetals for me was a better fit.

That's really good to hear, since I'll be putting the HotMetals up against my 565/765 combo in the forum testing.

Please don't think I have forgotten this thread. I'll update you all on my new clubs as soon as I can get a few rounds in. Mother nature has been raining on my parade quite a bit.

That's too weird we are just over an hour away and below normal for rainfall this August. Given the way the year has gone I fear a tropical event of some sort in September or October. :(

Rain is definitely coming to a Florida location near you. I've lived in Florida 5.5 years now and I don't remember this many rain days. Ponds R up every is green and rough long and juicy.

Tropical Storm will be around next couple months.

I shouldn't have written anything because we just had a deluge.

 

What's odd about our weather is that last year was a record setter for rain in the Tampa Bay Area. We had far more rain in the Winter/Spring (ask Kenny) followed by two tropical storms and a brush by a hurricane.

 

We haven't had close to as much rain this summer as last.
