Great looking stage 1's guys, just catching up on this thread. @sirchunksalot and @Tsecor - liking the play by play commentary, and the couple videos.  Keep em coming.  Also @ole gray - glad the Atomic Max irons are doing their job for you! 

Looking forward to the further commentary after a few more rounds, especially further discussion around any specific performance metrics (distance, shot dispersion, launch angles, etc.) and of course any improvements you guys see in scoring.

Thanks@revkev! I think you hit the nail on the head with the term "sleeper". I personally think a lot of people would pass these irons up due to the stigma of being a "house brand", when they really should give them a serious look, especially for people who are looking for more distance, forgiveness, or for just having fun in the golf course.

When doing the initial research on the Atomics, one of the things that impressed me was the quality of the construction. Whether it's the DAT55 titanium or how they braze the titanium to the steel, these are things that not a lot of other manufacturer's do. I know Tour Edge brazes their metal woods, and some JDM clubs also utilize the technique. Again, there is a great article on the homepage here at MyGolfSpy that can explain this better.

I swung by DSG while making a Target run this morning and took a few minutes to look at both Atomic lines. I didn't hit either while trying to get this tennis elbow to go away. The Max most definitely has a LOT of junk in the trunk, probably more so than I'd like given my love/hate (mostly hate) relationship with hybrids and hybrid-like irons.

The Atomic line, however, looked really nice at setup. The forged face & overall look reminds me of the Cleveland MT irons from a few years back, and that's a good thing. DSG doesn't list them as coming in graphite on their site, but they did have a demo 7i with a Recoil so that makes me think they're available somehow.

Heading out to the course later this afternoon. Hope to get some good video but I will be documenting a lot of shots on each hole. ...actually hopefully NOT a lot of shots on each hole. :)

 

Send in those questions!!!!

Some Stage 2 data and info. will be posted in the next week at some point. Hopefully these reviews are somewhat unique and the average player can relate. I watch a ton of You tube videos and its very hard to relate to the guys like Crossfield and company because they are great golfers and not truly average. As much as id like to relate to these utubers, its just not that easy. 

I often wonder if fitting truly helps the golfer in terms of scoring......I understand it may help launch characteristics and maybe length, but scoring is where its at. who cares if you gain 10 yards if you cant score any better.  Hopefully these reviews relate to a few people along the way.

if you want to see a certain test, or scenario, let us know!!!

Thank you for allowing us to review these irons. The more I play with them the easier they are to hit. The price point is right, that's for sure.  Hopefully these are a home run line for you guys.

Day 1 of our match play tournament and these irons are surprising me.
My distances are all steady once I get comfortable. So far I'm loving the 7 thru A wedge. The control I've got with these irons is something I'm not used to on a regular basis.
The 4-6 irons are still in a courtin phase with me.
The grips I swapped with are doing well also for a not big name grip.
Side note. Last week's round. I birdied the par 4, 2nd hole from 103 yds with the A wedge
Tomorrow we'll be playing the second half of the tournament at one of my favorite courses. Hopefully the rain doesn't hurt us.
Keep ya posted on how the courtin goes 🥰🤞

My wife joined me for today's round, and we had a blast! 20190824_142512-01.jpeg
I had her drive the cart and showed her how to use the rangefinder so she could help with yardages. She also took some time to take some pictures, as she's an artist and saw some places she could use as reference for backgrounds.20190824_135158-01.jpeg
Since the course was not too busy, I asked her to come up to the green and gave her an impromptu lesson on putting. Her aim was good, but her distance control was a bit off.20190824_151949-01.jpeg
I tied a personal best, shooting an 88. I apologize to anyone who saw on Twitter I shot an 89, going back through the round I saw a drive on 15 that said it went 42 yards and a lob wedge that traveled 192. Arccos picked up me searching for golf balls while we were waiting for a foursome to finish the hole. Screenshot_20190824-202208-01.jpeg
Today was the best ball striking round I've had with the Atomics since I've been gaming them. With the exception of a couple of draws I hit into trees on a couple of par 3's, these irons were point and shoot. I'm especially impressed with the shorter irons, as I hit a couple of shots with the AW that were dead on the flag. I hit shots on 14 and 15 that I thought had a chance to go in. The main thing that hurt my scoring today was back-to-back drives on the last two holes that went OB and cozy me some strokes, but the Atomics were dead on.

Thank you! I've taken her to the course once before, about six years ago, the one thing she told me was the last time she didn't remember me hitting approaches good into the green. Didn't have the heart to tell her it's the clubs.

I took the Atomics to the range today in order to get some work in with the long irons. The short irons are performing excellently for me, but there's some disconnect between my swing and the long irons. I want to be able to use the 4 and 5 off the tee, so I decided to set up a workstation to work on ball positioning. 20190825_172910-02.jpeg
A little bit front of center and I started hitting some pretty good shots.


I am a slight bit toward the toe, but with the forgiveness of these ironsi was still seeing nice flight and great forgiveness.
As an extra bonus for going to the range, I found some Bridgestone Tour B X balls on sale for $34.99 and had to buy a dozen.

Are you trying to hit different shots with these or are they more just point and shoot? How is the turf interaction? Is there anything you aren't liking rn?

IMO the customization will not be a problem at this price point. The type of golfer these are geared towards may not require precise fitting because as a golfer becomes better at his/her craft, the original fitting becomes somewhat null and void.  These are perfect for a SGI /GI player looking to bag a nice looking set of clubs that perform just as good as some of the higher priced irons on the market.

I am 5 rounds in with these and what ive found is, I cannot hit any sort of fade. I am NOT a fade player at all but now how to do it.....draws on the other hand are easy.....my stage 2 is lengthy and hopefully not boring.....hopefully the videos i post are somewhat decent. I hate seeing myself on camera #imfat   lol

      Hello all! Thought I would chime in on this putter since I've owned it for a few months now.
       
       
      I had been using a Ping Ketch mallet putter since the beginning of the year. (I am relearning the game left handed this year due to a back issue and decided to do so with the putter as well) I had been putting fairly well with it but found it a bit hard to line up and I didn't love it, like all putters I have owned. I saw the testing and reviews on this putter and decided to buy it online sight unseen.
       
      I tend to like a longer putter and got it in the 35” model.
       
      (Aside: A member of the forum let me know that it could be bought here in Canada on golfworks.ca as we don't have Dick's here, so thank you whoever you were. It was $130 Canadian. It arrived super well packed, maybe better than any other golf club I've ever gotten in the mail. There were two small scratches on the putter shaft. I decided to email golfworks and see what they had to say about it. The service was incredible and the best I've ever had online. They got back to me within an hour with an apology and said they would ship out a new one that day and they had a shipping label for me to return mine with. For me the scratch's weren't a big deal and I offered them to refund me $15-20 and I'd keep it. They did me even better and gave me their cost on it and refunded the difference! Unreal service. I will buy all my grips etc. from them going forward.)
       
      Ok, back to the review!
       
      The putter fit my eye immediately. I have only ever had one other golf club where I just knew I was going to hit it well and that I'd love it at first sight. It was a Cobra knockoff driver I won in the 90's in a closest to the pin contest. This putter was the same way. I just knew I was going to love it and play well with it. I have played ten rounds so far and only six three putts. My first round with it I swooped and won three skins with a twenty foot putt and did it again later in the round with a thirty five foot putt for three more skins (The guys weren't mocking me anymore for having a Tommy Armour putter after that haha)! I do not normally sink many long putts. My longest previous this year wouldn't have been any longer than fifteen feet.
       
      It is really well balanced, the pistol grip is actually very comfortable (I may replace it with something different down the road, we'll see) and I think it looks good. The head cover I can't say the same for, it's pretty ugly and doesn't fit on that well. That's a fairly minor issue, especially considering the price and performance of this putter. 
      On long putts I can easily line it up and it's no different on the short ones. The feel is just right for me, not too firm and not too soft, so they got the insert just right.  I just have so much confidence with this thing that I can't say enough about it. I would have paid five times as much if I knew it was going to make this kind of difference in my game. My putting stats show that I've dropped almost four strokes off my rounds. I was averaging thirty six PPR and now it's down to thirty two I took no lessons and used no training aids. It was all the putter. If someone would have told me a putter would shave three to four strokes off my game I would have laughed at you! 
       
      Bottom line is I love this putter. What a value the guys at Dicks have come up with....they made a world class putter for the $100 range. Thank you MY GOLF SPY, without this site I would never have given this a chance. You saved me spending $400+ on an Evenroll, so thank you guys for that.
       
      Looks – 7/10
      Feel – 9/10
      Alignment – 10/10
      Value – 11/10
       
      Overall – 9/10 – I highly, highly recommend this putter.
