I actually expected to see a slight gapping issue with only 3* between the 8 iron and 9 iron. However so far that has been a nonissue.

I asked for a gap wedge to go along with the set because the lofts matched up almost perfectly. And I still wish it came with one!

I also asked for 5-GW, but we then discovered we were basing it on older set info:  there is no GW in the new black cat set.  

3 and 4 are available though.  I would be into trying a 4i at least.

The only gapping issue isn't really the clubs. Since I'm hitting an extra 10 yds +/- there's now a pretty sizeable hole between my PW and 50° by about 25 yds. I'm now considering having it adjusted to 48° to see if I can close that up a hair.

On another note, just got back from a long hot 18. Played the tips at San Marcos here in Chandler. Pooped the bed on the front 9 with a 46 but cleaned up nicely on the back for a 38.

Was on fire with the driver hitting 12 fairways at Max swing! On a longer par 3 that played 216 uphill, roped a 4i to the front right fringe pin high. The course has some long nearly U shaped fairways with tall trees blocking the approach. Was able to shape a few iron shots nicely around the trees which is always fun.

Ultimately I don't think I had 1 iron shot that hurt me. I contribute the poor play primarily to my wedges and putting. Humidity was 40% which is extremely high here. I just couldn't control my distance around 100 yds and everything was just falling short. My putting distance was just off too.

But I'd say that overall today's round was quite successful with the VT's

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

So here are a few videos

This first one is to demonstrate the acoustics. The camera didn't quite pick up the PW and 9i like I'd hoped but you can still see a subtle difference. Toe strikes tend to amplify the sound.

PW Video. 
 
9i video
 
7i shapes. Draw, Fade, and Low. Please excuse the awkward hand signals.
 
3i Stinger

This one is the bonus video. The 3 and 4 are just low blistering rockets. So fun to hit!
 
 
Great videos and you can definitely hear a difference with the 9 and PW, it's just a little sharper. I'm jealous of those stingers, those were great! Is it just a trick of the lighting on the sound video, or does your 7 iron have a hole in the toe section of the club? I watched in slow motion and it looked like it was in the same spot as you are addressing the ball.

How many yards difference are you seeing in carry between the two?

Did a little comparison testing with my 3 other iron sets.  I was pulling and hooking a lot, and blocking some right with my graphite shafted C300s.  

The Black Cats are in the lead for feel at the very least, even compared to well struck shots with my AMP cell Pro MB irons!  I need to do launch monitor comparos to learn anything more.  

20190811_170135.thumb.jpg.e18befa90a3292cdc0328490dae7bb34.jpg

 

I also included a couple 4i in the mix.  Today was my first experience with a 4i.  Holy cow the ball gets sent, mid penetrating trajectory, a couple over 200 yds, but mishits were punished quite a bit.  

The 5i Black Cat works quite well.  I was flying that about 175 on the range, so I would add 5-8yds if hitting a new ball.  It had better feel and accuracy than the other 3.  I have a hunch the 5-8i might be winners, and the 9 and PW may be equal to others, but I really need computer data so stay tuned 🙂

Arccos is on order also, bday gift to myself, next Sunday.  We'll see if the missus got me anything golf related also 🙂

So not a trick OR lighting. It's a port hole. Not to be confused with a portal.. 🛸.. 👽..🤣

Story: When we got our clubs, myself and @JudgeSmails opted for the chrome finish. Well we both received 7 irons with what appeared to be punched port holes or possibly casting blemishes. Additionally my 5i had a pretty wicked rattle going on. 

We informed Lynx and they quickly responded that the 7 irons were prototypes for next year and that we shouldn't have gotten them as they weren't a finished product. At least that's how I understood it. Apparently the rattle was also a common issue with the closed models and the ports allow them to fish out any post-casting debris. Makes plenty of sense👍

The upside is that there is no performance loss and it's strictly aesthetic and not at all visible at address. It has however become a slightly negative talking point though as many people have taken high interest in the clubs at courses, range, PGATSS, Van's, etc and ALWAYS ask about my 5 and 7. 

Not only do they just look a bit odd, but the port just kind of looks like an afterthought. It's not precision drilled or milled but punched or cast as there's an indentation and it's rather off-center. Additionally the holes are just filled in with what appears to be a rubber plug of some sort. Ultimately we settled on what we got because after all we paid nothing for the clubs and they're still outstanding. 

InShot_20190811_194440516.jpg

We didn't want  to  make much of a public issue out of it as Lynx did attempt to address it in a quick manner. I think we all had a feeling that at some point it would be noticed and questioned. After all we are dealing with world-class golf spys here. 😎

Hopefully the finished product will be cleaner with a more precisely placed and drilled/milled port and finished screw. Otherwise it'd be like buying a brand new porsche with a dented bumper IMO. 

Hopefully this helped without shedding too much negative light  on Lynx. They're still working  out some very important kinks in this whole process so I just chalk this up to being part of the groundwork to something potentially very special.

Thats quite a pot pourri of clubs you have going on there!

I've got that same Cobra Amp in a 4w. Put a UST Elements Chrome shaft on it and it's as if Mrs. Buttersworth and the incredible Hulk had a love child. Sweet, buttery, and just smashes! I'm yet to find anything on the shelf today that compares to my 7 year old AMP.

Thank you for the explanation, I was curious if it might be a tungsten weight but in the video it looked a bit hexagonal. It had me wondering if they might have done it for some of the mid and long irons to add forgiveness. As a prototype club, I wouldn't see that as an issue but as a way Lynx is looking at ways to improve the performance in future clubs. Watching the video of how workable that 7 iron is, I definitely don't see any issues with performance.

The Prowler irons are definitely sharp looking, and I'm really rooting for Lynx to succeed with them.

Should note that Lynx sent me a replacement 7 iron, but it still had the same hole in it.  I'm not too worried about it, I don't think it will affect anything.

My gapping appears very workable with the 5-PW Black Cats. This chart shows club ranges in my 6 rounds with the Black Cats. 

image.thumb.png.7603606e4730dd2a9364325a28f0838c.png

Usage of clubs in some instances is still pretty shallow ( 5 and 9) so I think these number will smooth out some.

image.thumb.png.ce26a71c733a0463ad66907a27338a7b.png

Played two more rounds last week inducing an eagle Thursday and a round at Moody Gardens Golf Course on Galveston Island Sunday. In these two rounds achieved 2 personal bests.

image.thumb.png.2a1cf2eb661cb669925771679fbdd0d3.png

Had to throw this one in there even though no irons were used, I don't eagle very often.

Then there was Moody Gardens where I rarely play but it is very challenging. Hole 11 was straight into a 10-15 mph wind and typical of this track Lots and Lots of water! I only lost 2 balls.

image.thumb.png.e8a3fff1e8c821f9f25ab9c41c97ac03.png

 Both rounds were played under a heat advisory here in south Texas 100+ degrees🔥

My game is benefiting from the improved conditions as we had such a wet spring and now in spite of the heat the courses around here are in great shape. The Black Cats have continued to perform well and give me confidence every time I step up to the ball🏌️‍♂️

I don’t have any launch monitor numbers but on course I hit the 8 iron 140-145 with a nice controlled swing. The 9 iron is about 135 the few times I have hit it. The 9 iron is probably the least used club for me as I don’t find myself at the right yardage to use it very often.

Played on outing on Friday.  Hole #18 about 150 from pin center of green for our second shot.  Took the 7iron, with an easy swing and almost holed it. The ball mark was 6inches to the left of the hole.  We were on the next hole of the scramble before I even thought about getting a picture.  Guess I was just living in the moment.  There are a few things I will want  to address in the stage 2, but for now, they are trying hard to stay in my bag.

Great stuff Stu!  On the last video of the 4 iron, after you striped it down the middle and walked towrard the screen, I thought you were going to go all Alex Etches on us for a moment.   If you know who he is, you know what I mean, if you don't him, check him out his videos are great and very humorous as well.   

Here's a link to one of his videos to check him out, he starts hitting around the 2:00 minute mark.

Still a lot of rounds left for this guy before we are finished but as of now my only complaint would be how the ball is effected by wind. I am contemplating putting a c taper lite 110 shaft in my 7 iron for a comparison. I already hit a high ball so I’m thinking the Tour 90 shaft might be exacerbating the problem.

Got data! 🙂

it took most of my half hour session at PGA Tour Superstore just to figure out how to display the numbers.  Then after getting 75 shots, what to do with them all.  So I took video while I toggled thru each shot. I just finished entering all the data into excel 🙂 .  Ball goes much farther in the computer, it seems.  

No conclusions yet.  Soon.

      Howdy! Looking forward to my fitting next week for the new T-Series irons. Currently gaming 7-9 AP2 and 5-6 AP3 and a 4 in the TMB.
      Titleist usually gives their fitters a sheet with blend suggestions (and even loft adjustments recommendations). Has anyone seen this sheet yet? Has anyone been fitted for a blended set? If so, what is your setup?
      Thanks!

      Shankster and PING Blueprint Irons---A Match Made in Heaven? 
      Every so often we do a special review of a club on MGS.   Usually it's when the OEM provides us with one set or one driver etc for review, it's not practical to open it up to over 500 to 1,000 applications and pick just one person.
      So when the Blueprint review was generously offered by PING with the stipulation it went to a member who was a true low single digit handicap, we discussed as a group who would be an ideal member to reach out to test these beauties. Honestly at least half a dozen names came to mind, but some of them were already involved in a testing or had just completed one.  
      Then one name really jumped out at us,  Shankster.   Not just because he fit the handicap requirement, but if there is any one person on this site who is a more of a traditionalist and prefers the minimalist design in a club than Alan, we don't know who it is.  
      When we reached out to Shankster, it took him about 1 minute to say yes, and that's only because he was recovering from the shock of being asked and making sure he wasn't being punked!     We had to work through the timing of his move from Michigan to Maryland, but all that got sorted out.
      Not knowing exactly when today he'll get his post up, I'll leave you with a few of these.

      PRESS RELEASE
      PING introduces next generation
      of custom-fit women’s equipment
       
      PHOENIX (July 1, 2019): Advancements in technology, lighter overall club weight, expanded fitting options and premium materials combine to make the new G Le2 family PING’s highest performing women’s clubs to date, the company announced today. The complete line of clubs is available for pre-order at authorized PING golf shops around the world beginning today.
       
      “The G Le2 represents our continued commitment to providing women golfers of every skill level with premium, high-performance equipment optimized to their swing speeds,” said Stacey Pauwels, PING Executive Vice President and the granddaughter of PING founders Karsten and Louise Solheim, whose role includes overseeing the brand’s women’s initiatives.”
       
      “To achieve one of our performance goals of improving the feel of the club throughout the entire swing, we focused on making the clubs lighter overall,” Pauwels added.  “We integrated our extensive knowledge of materials and manufacturing processes with our proven design technologies to deliver measurable improvements throughout the set. At the same time, we wanted to present the new clubs in a visually appealing and confidence-inspiring way. We’re extremely excited about the results and look forward to bringing the G Le2 family to women golfers around the world.”
       
      Custom fit and custom built
      Along with ensuring measurable performance improvements throughout the G Le2 family, PING’s engineering team placed added importance on expanding the fitting options to help women find the ideal set to match their games.
       
      “Having equipment that is custom fitted to their games allows women to see improvement from every club in their bag,” said Pauwels. “The G Le2 family really emphasizes that need through loft, lie and length adjustability along with the shaft weight, flex and grip offerings. Once we know those specifications, finding the best combination of fairway woods, hybrids, irons and wedges during a fitting is the next step in the process.”
       
      “Because we custom build every club, we want women to know we’ll make them a set that best fits their game,” she said. “The key is determining the ideal set makeup that provides proper distance gaps between each club. That may be a full set or maybe a smaller set of a few metal woods, hybrids, irons, a wedge and a putter. Once we have all their fitting information, we can custom build the clubs to their precise specifications for maximum performance.”
      Lighter, faster, more forgiving driver
       
      The next generation of golf’s highest-performing women’s driver maximizes forgiveness and distance through a higher MOI, faster face and lighter overall weight. Its titanium head features a rounder, more aerodynamic shape to promote faster clubhead speeds. A thin, forged T9S+ face is optimized for the intended swing speed to increase flexing for more ball velocity and improved launch conditions. Internal heel-biased weighting helps ensure straighter ball flights and softer turbulators help frame the ball at address. Trajectory Tuning 2.0 in the G Le2 driver utilizes a new lightweight, aerodynamic hosel sleeve that provides eight positions for influencing ball flight through loft (±1.5°) adjustments.
       
      Faster faces, higher-launching, adjustable fairway woods
       
      A thinner, faster maraging steel C300 face, a significantly higher MOI and an 8-lobe adjustable hosel distinguish the G Le2 fairway wood from its predecessor. The added ball speed from the face technology increases distance and combines with the shallower face to launch the ball higher with greater forgiveness. An overall lighter club weight makes swinging the club easier with more clubhead speed for longer and straighter results. Internal weighting promotes right-to-left shot correction to keep shots on target. Available in 3, 5, 7 and 9 woods.
       
      Lighter, longer and straighter irons
       
      Precise and forgiving with a lighter overall club weight, G Le2 irons utilize COR-Eye Technology with a deep top-rail undercut to increase face flexing for more ball speed and higher max height. A tungsten toe weight helps increase MOI by 10% for greater forgiveness and a co-molded cavity badge ensures a pleasing feel and sound. Available in 6-9 iron, PW, UW, SW.
       
      Faster face, higher-launching hybrids with more fitting choices
       
      A thinner, hotter Carpenter 455 face and lighter club weight generate faster ball speeds while a lower, deeper CG helps increase the MOI to launch the ball high with greater forgiveness. The addition of a 34⁰ 7 hybrid expands the fitting options for women who prefer the technology of a hybrid in place of an iron. Softer crown turbulators help capture the ball at address and aid in alignment. Available in 4, 5, 6 and 7 hybrids.
       
      Adjustable putters with feel and forgiveness
       
      Enhanced feel and forgiveness and a new adjustable-length shaft improve performance and fitting opportunities in the three new G Le2 putters (Anser, Shea and Echo). A dual-durometer face insert -- engineered with TR face technology -- provides a soft front layer for precision and improved impact feel and a firmer second layer for control to improve consistency on putts of every distance. The easy-to-use adjustable shaft allows self-fitting for length between 31" and 35". A new, softer PP59 midsize grip improves feel and comfort.
       
      Lighter shafts, softer grips
      PING’s proprietary ULT240 Lite and Ultra Lite premium graphite shafts are standard throughout the G Le2 family and help bring down overall club weight while helping generate more clubhead speed and higher launch. The super-soft Golf Pride Tour Velvet Garnet 360 grip is available in three sizes (Blue -1/16", Red -1/32", Aqua -1/64").

      Do you remember when Baby Got Back and End of the Road topped the billboard charts? If so,  then you will remember when Lynx irons won a couple Major Championships in the early 90's with Fred Couples and Erine Els, and that the cat symbol was one of the coolest logos in golf. If you don't remember those songs...well there is always google!!!  
      LYNX disappeared from the mainstream for quite a while---you can read about LYNX announcing it's return to the US last year in this as usual great piece by John Barba The Cat is Back   
      So what does this mean for the forum.....a great testing opportunity as usual.   Lynx is providing 4 sets of the Prowler VT and 4 sets of the Black Cat irons for you to test, review and keep.    Not sure which one fits your game, take a few moments and check them out on the website--at the time this was posted the site is undergoing some maintenance, but you should still be able to see which model interests you.
