Well it's time to fill the the Gap in this thread with some Testers.     Join the four testers who join me in filling the gap between the last iron we hit effectively and driver.   As

This made my Thursday a little bit better! This is an area of my bag that I never really focused on until recently, seeing that it's the only spot that needs some attention now. Got grouped with a gre

This would be great! I'm in the final stage of my bag makoeover and the 3 wood/hybrid need updating.  Recently got into the g410 crossover to replace my 3 iron and so far it matches my i210's nicely!

This is an awesome opportunity.  I basically trusted my fitters judgement when I got fit and went with his recommendations much like the testers will have to here.  He went 5-wood versus 3-wood and he nailed it on the head.  Much more consistent with that.

Also used longest iron as a 5 iron and added a 3 and 5 hybrid because they fit my gaps perfectly.

It might look a little weird if you look at the numbers or the lofts, but once you see your yardage gaps it makes sense.  Hopefully the testers can look past anything like that and trust the fitters!  


Good luck to those selected!

"Obviously my iron play is incredible, and when I get going I can get hot, but this course just fits my eye. The shaping of the holes, and just a couple of the doglegs, I'm able to shape shots."

Perfect group of testers. Congrats guys. Really curious about the crossover since I am not a big fan of how hybrids look. Hopefully at least 1 guy gets fit into one so I can pick their brain!

Congrats! Testers, I had a chance over the weekend to swing through a range of stock G410 distance clubs just for funsies at PGATSS. I'll do that whenever there's a testing opportunity that really has me jazzed just to know if it's something that I can fully get behind and put all of my effort into. Even if not chosen I ALWAYS have a fun time doing it . It included a 3w, 5w, 3h, 4h, and 2 iron. I'll have to say that y'all are in for a real treat. I could easily replace my current driver with the 3 wood just for the sake of laser accuracy wins over distance. These things are absolute beauties! With the whole fitting experience included, it would be hard to know where the cake stops and the icing begins. Can't wait to follow this one!

the more I practice, the luckier I seem to get..
