I game i200's, and I love them. But only with the nippon Modus 105 shafts. With the stock shafts I got more distance, but no spin and inconsistent distance.

 

So whichever you like the look and feel of, go with that. Then find the best shaft for you.

I got completely opposite results to you. With the Modus shafts I was all over the place. AWT 2.0 in Stiff Regular (Japanese Spec shaft), consistent distance, a lovely high flight with good descent and holding greens. I tried every shaft in the fitters cart, he then went back into his shop and came out the with SR flex, just suits my swing.

This isn't about my game it's about yours. Interestingly you and I are the same age and handicap and yet from your comments we get there in radically different ways.

 

So be smart - ignore what other people are saying they use - almost no relevance for you.

 

You game mizuno and have had success. I'm taking it you are wanting a bit more forgiveness and umph.

 

Stay in Mizuno and start with an iteration of the JPX 900's to see what seems most comfortable there. If that doesn't work look at something else Mizuno before moving on.

 

My biggest equipment mistake was not getting back to Ping Irons sooner.

My I200s with AWT shafts are great. I hit them very good indoors but on the course not so good. The Mizunos are amazing no doubt but I think forged will always feel better. When I tried the JPX 900 forged the shaft analyzer put the Reg flex modus in the mix and it was really really good. I normally play stiff flex but that day the reg was working.

Find a good fitter that carries as many of the clubs you like and go get fit or narrow down to a set or two and get fit specifically for that set.

 

Golf clubs are somewhat personal in why people play them and what works for one might not work for someone else

One of my golf buddies plays the Ping i200's on steel 95. I've tried hitting them multiple times over the last year with no success. Then last week I hit them twice and nailed both shots.

 

They're the “hot” version, a few degrees stronger than the normal bend.

I have to admit they felt decent, but still “clicky” , which makes me wonder if the Rev has a point. I have games mizzies for 30 years. They feel good, I think everyone knows that.

But- I know that new tech in new different clubs have to feel good too.

 

I like to hear what others are gaming, in relation to the newer clubs, and why they like them.

If you are going to get fit and like soft forgings at least try the Srixon Z765s. They are a really really soft feel with good forgiveness in a players cavity look. They are definitely worth a hit. I went to them after gaming Mizuno MP60s for years.

The good thing is that out of that list, you're pretty much guaranteed to have 2-3 lines that'll really work well for you, especially once you dial them in via fitting. 

 

Sometimes the researching and testing/trying is more fun than the actual purchase :D

You have to actually hit them. In my opinion, find shaft that works and then. Figure out the club.

 

I have or will be hitting most players , players distance, and game improvement irons. It really is personal preference, I love clubs that people hate and hate clubs that people love.

 

Really looking forward to testing the C300 forged as part of the forum testing. I have hit them in the store and liked their performance.

 

If you have always played and liked Mizuno, why switch? They have models that will fit whatever need you have.

Go to a brand agnostic club fitter and try them all. A good fitter will direct you to the best set for your game.

Brand agnostic fitter.

 

Quote of the week.

 

Ironically my recent Titleist ball fitting was an eye opener. He recommended an iron type for my swing, not a particular brand. That iron type with the light graphite shaft that I prefer pops for me. I actually picked up 6 to 7 yards of carry with my six iron with more loft. Smoothed the gap between 6 and 5 hybrid right out.

Lost me with this.  Any iron with light graphite?  Reason for the distance gain is faster club speed?
