Recommended Posts

It took about a month to see the big improvements, I just feel so confident with these clubs. I used to be on single figures and had lost my way, but i'm back to my old form.

That's great to hear. Congrats on the improvement, and lower scores are fun aren't they.

 

I'll have obviously more detail in the final stages coming very soon, but I feel i owe it to the forum to at least add a comment or two about scoring. 

 

I haven't seen the dramatic drop in handicap that you have. .  But I can say at the beginning of the testing, I was a 19.7, as of Nov 1st I am 17.9.   The only other change in my bag during that time was driver, but there was only a minor increase in yardage I picked up in the performance of the current driver 917D3 that I started the year with vs the Srixon 565 that I played most of the summer,. 

 

The JPX900 Hot Metal irons have been very solid.  As many know, I just got a set of Titliest 718 combo AP1/AP2 that I have only had a couple rounds in with, but have compared on the range to the JPX,   The 4-7 end of the bag is where the are similar, and so far the performance has been very similar in both.   Will have some actual data of the two to go into the final stage.

Got done with work early in Tulsa today, and American Airlines wanted to charge me $400 to fly a day early, so I went to the local Golf Galaxy and hit a bunch of irons on the monitor. Tried the 900 Tours and couldn't get a good feel for them. Lots of “left”. Club FELT nice though!

I went to a local course that had some fitting carts and a range, so I built a few clubs and went to hit a bucket. Tried the Tours and Forged this time. Again, not a good fit.

I will say this, though: as usual, the fitting carts only had clubs that were +1/2”, so everything was a minimum of 1/2” short for me.

The Tours are SO pretty!

Plus I'm pretty sure in this, but I believe Mizuno I'd 1/4 shorter than most OEM standard. So if you were hitting a 1/2 over Mizuno, you likely were really hitting a 1/4 over the standard from most OEM. Which in reality could be 3/4 to 1 1/4 inxh from what you are used to.

Yep, no doubt. Let alone lie angles... Being 6'5” it's IMPOSSIBLE to go to a place with a fitting cart and TRULY get fitted, or even have a selection to demo that “fits”. There was one OEM that did have an option with a +1” shaft and I hit lasers with it! That LITTLE bit of length makes a HUGE difference!

Oh yeah, I didn't even mention the lie angles, that was one reason i was about a month behind the others in getting started, I normally play 2 to 3 degrees up and the mizuno lies are flatter than normal specs.

The guy at the store mentioned this. He didn't know exactly how many degrees flatter, but it was obvious looking down at the “upright” fitting head that it was still “toe-down”.

I believe it is 2 degrees. So for me to get them back on to standsrd they would have had to bend them 2 and to ny minimal spec of 2 degrees up they would have had to go 4.

 

Since they are cast they said that wasn't possible. I asked them to get the 6 iron as close as they could to 63 or 64 degrees. As my Srixon 6 iron was 63.5 up from the 61.5 standard.

 

They came back unbroken and no note thaf they did otherwise. So in guessing based on my flight and looks next to the Srixon. They are pretty close.

This is interesting, I didn't know that.

 

During my fitting, the club fitter handed me +1/2" to try. It was odd to me because I don't consider myself taller than average at just 5'10". In the end, after hitting on the lie board I was spec'd to play 1* upright, and I find that I start my ball straighter than I used to.

I'm imagining that scene from Mighty Ducks where that Emilio Estevez makes the kid hold the hockey stick and then turn it, and then drops it because he can't rotate his wrist and everyone does the FeelsBadMan face. Get well soon brother!

It doesn't do ball data. It has a feature that tells you how far you hit it, and it'll put a tracker with numbers at the bottom that climbs as the ball travels, but to get it to work you need to walk where your ball landed while you have the "distance tracker" effect open.

 

So Cool!! And man did that shot sound and look crisp!!

It should work for all iOS devices. It's really fun to play with, but it's $7 so unless you video yourself often it's probably pretty useless. I only bought it for the purpose of the review and since MGS was kind enough to get me a set of new irons, I figure another $7 out of my pocket to help get my results put on paper, was something I would gladly do.

HAHAHAHAHA! Perfect movie quote. We need someone on the review named Charlie to give up his spot  :lol: I'm dying.
