Great start everyone!!  This should really be good to see if Lynx is really back.  

I know 1 or 2 of you mentioned it in your Stage 1's, but what are you specifically looking for in these irons?  Is what you're looking for something you love about your current set, or something you would love to change?

I am looking for more forgiveness on miss-hits, and hopefully more distance (or no loss of distance).

As a former AP1 player.  I look forward to your thoughts on the Black Cats. 

Nice experience at Pebble.  I'm not envious in the least. 😎

I have played 3 rounds so far with the Black Cats in my bag and I can tell you my AP1's may have a fight on there hands to get back in the bag😲. Arccos Caddie has my approach handicap numbers falling in all 3 rounds so far.image.png.a4d97f38a6754e028bbc869afd1af734.png

Former AP1 player...what do you play now?

Anyone that can ever go to Pebble should do it it IS worth the expense in my opinion

@daviddvm  can you snap some closeups of the Arccos trackers on your grips?  These Lammys have rounded ends (ironically, the full Arccos grip is Lamkin). 

Are the trackers staying put ok?

I have some pics on my home computer I'll post. 

I have had no issues with the the arccos trackers staying in place, and I don't baby them I still slam my club down in the bag after a bad shot😡

I'm just looking to get better at a very hard game I love. I try to improve my swing and mental approach constantly and if there is any technology out there that can help my be a better golfer and I can afford it...I want it😜

When I played Pebble Beach and Spyglass Hill last summer I took the opportunity to play 2018 full set of Taylor Made M4's with my specs and a Spyder putter all supplied by ClubHub shipped to Spanish Bay Resort for two days rental for only $89.00. I was wanting to try those clubs for a while to see if I liked them more than my Titleist. So I tested the M4 and really concluded it was a draw as far as clubs were concerned except for the putter, I much prefer my Scotty to the Spider.

So I'm really just putting the Lynx Black Cats in my bag and if my game benefits from them ...they will stay there🏌️‍♂️

For me I looking for consistency with distance control. My Adams XTD A Tour irons are great irons but I do get the occasional where did that come from shot. I normally hit my PW roughly 120-130 and have had the occasional 150+ out of it. Missing 30+ yards long isn’t a good thing where I play.
I mentioned this in our PM’s but for some reason completely whiffed on putting it in the stage 1.

I'm looking to see if these will hit consistent distance, have a good dispersion, be able to flight high/low/L/R and feel good.  The basic stuff 😉  

I'm curious to see if, with such high lofts, if these can hang with GI or PD irons distance wise, and if so, I'd be curious to know how the spin rates compare and if the spin rates are also consistent.

I'm glad you ask.  What I am looking for in Irons, and specifically these? More forgiveness on miss hits.  currently if I have an open face it will bend at a 90 degree angle and hit what ever is to my right.   Closed face and I have a noodle that will strike anything to my left.  Yes, we all strive for the sweet spot on every hit, as do I.  Realistically though that's not a certainty.

You're relatively new here. So I'm sure you won't appreciate the hilarity that everyone else on here will see in that question 😂😂

Just tell me how far back you want me to go, and I'm speaking in terms of months not years 😎

PLEASE NOTE!   

I'm passing on a message from Stephanie Zinser...Owner of Lynx Golf.

 

 

Hello testers,  

 

First off, we wanted to thank each of you for the interest in Lynx Golf. We are longtime fans of MyGolfSpy.com and look forward to hearing more about your experience.

 

We read with some dismay that the majority, if not all testers, received clubs in a damaged box, which is totally unacceptable and of great embarrassment to us. We have never had any club turn up in beaten-up boxes in the UK and Europe in over 8 years of business. 

 

It is true that some of our packaging will be different from any other golf brand, because in August 2018 we went single use plastic free as we felt it was irresponsible to do anything else for the sake of our planet.

 

The U.S. market is new to us and we will be immediately looking at the courier used with these shipments, as well as having an extra outer box for single sets like this to prevent further damage in future. 

 

This is something we will remedy immediately and have taken up with our PR company who shipped these items.

 

Finally we noted one or two comments regarding our website; this is because we are about to launch a new website in conjunction with our entry into the USA. Stay tuned and thank you again!

 

Kind regards 
Stephanie Zinser 
Owner, Lynx Golf

Nice of them to comment and it is a great sign of their level of engagement as well as commitment to building the brand. I also think that the comments that that were provided in the initial reviews added some value as they don’t generally see the end product as delivered. Hoping to be able to watch this brand grow in the near future.

Well this really hits home how important our jobs as testers in this instance is to a company launching their product back into the U.S. market. Also gives credence to how important MGS is in this industry.

      When it comes to PING many things come to mind, quality, engineering, performance and irons are among the first things most people will think of.   And with the release earlier this year of the G410 irons, PING has hit on each one of those characteristics. 
      Following the huge success of the G400 irons, PING has hit a home run with the striking black and red colors of this iron, as well as a being a bit more streamlined in all the right places.   PING has achieved the rare feat of providing an iron that has a profile appealing to even the most discerning of golfers, but yet still offering the forgiveness and help that higher handicaps look for. 

      We are looking for three forum members to join staff member Golfspy_Stroker in testing, reviewing and keeping a set of these G410's built to their custom specs.  Testing will require a nearly two month commitment of putting the irons in play on the course, at the range and providing ongoing commentary in the forum thorough out the process. 
      As an extra bonus to the irons, the selected testers will have the option to choose Golf Pride Tour Velvet grips equipped with Arccos.  The clubs will come with a 99 day free trial to arccos.  After that the tester would be responsible for paying for the subscription in order to continue it.   It will be a great way to add data to your review. 
      PING has opened this testing to all golfers regardless of country of residence.   All you have to do to be eligible for the testing is follow the below instructions.
       
      In a post in this thread please provide the following information...AND DO NOT QUOTE this post when replying!
      First Name/State or Country of residence
      Handicap
      Current irons in Play
      The carry distance of the your 7 iron
      That's it.   Good luck to everybody
      We'll be selecting the testers within the next 10 to 14 days, so check back to see if you've been selected!

      ===========================================================================================
      YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE....

      Please join me in congratulating these members selected from a very large and diverse applicant pool:

      Lynx Golf Continues Momentum with Launch of LynxGolfUSA.com, Release of Black Cat Lines
        (Weybridge, Surrey, UK) – Lynx® Golf – the iconic equipment brand trusted by multiple major championship winners over its storied history – unveils LynxGolfUSA.com, a new website providing American golfers access to the manufacturer’s innovative lines, including the new Black Cat Series.

      Launch of the site coincides with new social media channels, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and will feature unique blog content, newsletter sign-up and more. Bolstering the introduction of the new site and social media channels is the U.S. debut of the latest generation of the famed Black Cat line, which delivers leading-edge technology in an attractive and classic aesthetic.  
       
      “The U.S. site is the latest step in our journey to bring this iconic brand back to a place of prominence in the American golf market,” says Stephanie Zinser, CFO and co-owner of Lynx Golf. “Black Cat is the perfect series to accompany our website and social launches as golfers have fond memories of previous iterations, but that nostalgia will quickly be replaced with modern performance that maximizes both distance and accuracy.”
       
      The Black Cat line features innovations unique to the Lynx brand: Effective Energy Transfer – Each driver, fairway wood and hybrid are engineered with proprietary technology designed to disperse energy across the club face, offering greater forgiveness on off-centre hits.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Weight Bar System – Found in the line’s driver and fairway woods, the system transfers weight from the front to the back of the clubhead, giving players control over their preferred launch and spin rate.                                                                                                                                                                             Hollow-Head Technology with Variable Face Thickness – Each iron distributes weight across the hitting surface while a polymer-filled hollow cavity in the head allows for one of the thinnest forged faces in the industry. This provides more effective energy transfer across the face for increased ball speeds and a higher, more stable MOI throughout the set.  Over the past several years, the Lynx brand has made a resounding impact in the U.K., as the company has recorded double-digit annual sales increases every year since 2013. This growth has been driven by several successful products which will be featured on LynxGolfUSA.com including the popular Prowler VT irons, Prowler Forged irons, and Tigress line of women’s clubs.                                    
      “Without our success in Europe and around the world, days like today are not possible” says Steve Elford, CEO and co-owner of Lynx Golf. “What golfers are about to see and experience in the U.S. started nearly a decade ago when our team set out to restore the glory once associated with the iconic brand.”
        
      Founded in the 1970’s by John Riley Sr. and Carl Ross, Lynx® Golf quickly established a massive fanbase among the game’s best players. This included legendary ambassadors who trusted the brand to help them capture victories at the 1992 Masters and 1994 US Open, among other wins.
       
      Lynx’s renowned product lines include everything from TOUR-caliber clubs, such as the Prowler VT irons, to products geared for mid-to-high handicappers. At the professional level, the brand continues to draw talent, as its ambassadors include the legendary Dame Laura Davies and former European Tour standout, and current Sky Sports TV presenter, Nick Dougherty, as well as LET players Lydia Hall, Becky Brewerton and Trish Johnson.  
        About Lynx® Golf
        
      Lynx® Golf concentrates on developing high quality, technologically-advanced but affordable golf clubs, backed up by great customer service. In the UK, it has gained a strong foothold in ‘green grass’ golf accounts – retail operations typically run at golf courses by PGA Professionals - with clubs designed and assembled in the UK at the company’s Weybridge, Surrey, headquarters.

      I have a set of JPX 919 hot metal pro irons, 4 - GW, kbs c taper light stiff shafts, that have been played for about 15 rounds and hit for 5 range sessions. Still pretty much look new (will post pictures later), but looking to potentially trade for a set of black cobra forged tec irons in similar shape, or a set of 919 forged. The clubs are fine, but the added distance I get compared to my old clubs is a little more than I need. 
      All standards for length, lie, etc. If in the metro Detroit area, would be willing to meet up to make the trade to save on shipping. 
      GONE AND CAN BE LOCKED DOWN!
