Sigh. Shorts and a polo, and here I'm looking out at 5-8 inches of snow with wind chills in the single digits. 

Looking like a good load into your rear leg, @Rickp!

Love reading the updates, everyone. Bet these will be winners across the board.

They're here!  So lets look at this timeline for a second, I was fit on Sunday afternoon and the clubs were at my door tonight when I got home from my football game.  They were built, packaged and shi

You guys are all doing a great job with these reviews! Sounds like you're all getting along nicely with them, and I can't wait to see how they perform after the "getting to know you" phase. Personally, new clubs tend to perform even better after getting some time to adjust.

How are they performing out of the rough? Are they losing a decent amount of distance, or are they relatively close to normal?
@ballplayer002003 great videos! Stroker, that was a great wedge into 3 feet!@Rickp :

@GregB135 hopefully yours will show up soon and I can't wait to see how they work for you.

I couldn't answer that, I don't hit balls into the rough!  haha.  They are actually performing pretty close to normal.  Now this time of year in my area, the rough is some places are really thick while others are filled with craters where the ball is sitting down.  All in all, they are a pretty solid performer across the board.

I've definitely been in the rough and haven't had any issues.

The sole design is such that it allows you to get down and through the ball in thicker grass and the face is pretty hot from heel to toe so if you don't catch it in the middle you're still going to get a good result and not lose much distance.

Quick question, where did the ball land as opposed to how much rollout did you get?

Unfortunately there’s a long answer but I’ll try to keep it simple. On this hole I play the drive on purpose in the left rough to take the water in front and all along the right side of green out of play. Doing this I’m hitting the iron out of light/medium Bermuda rough and trying to hit left front of green and roll ball somewhere near pin, Worked today. 2 of the foursome ended up in the water from the right side of the fareway.

I get it, we have a hole like that on my course.  I am for the rough too, to take water, bunkers and two ditches out of play.  The reason why I asked is because I cannot get more than about 2ft of release with ANY of my clubs.  A few days ago, I hit a 6 iron into a par 5 and had about 2 ft of release to the hole.  I have learned with these clubs I have to hit pretty close to the number.

This has been a “relearning experience” (if that makes any sense) with the clubs/fitting. The 4’ lie difference has me changing my swing and ball placement. I’ve lost some height and trying to get some consistency. When I do get solid shots the clubs are really good.

I’m thinking the 2’ flat may have been a degree too much, or I’m struggling getting used to the change.
I’m going to talk to fitter tomorrow and experiment. Definitely got this Ole Fart interested. Got 1/2 The Villages interested.

Love those videos.  That app really shows the ball flight well.  I know you purposely hit that first one with a big draw just to show how workable these are and how well the shot tracer works 😛

Which app is that that gives the ball tracer?

The 5-6 irons need a bit more work but the 7-Gap are really working out.

I didn’t even notice the difference in Lie Angles, guess I’m getting used to the change.

They're He-eere!!!!

Arrived this morning and we were at the driving range/course within the hour.

Initially warming up it took me a few swings to get the feel for the setup and takeaway with the different lie angle. 

I got out on the course and first hole was a GIR with the U-wedge from about 115. From there it was still a bit of feeling them out but by the time I got to the back 9 I was really comfortable making aggressive full swings.

I'm still adjusting my eye to these at setup with the slightly large club head and a little more offset. It took backing off a couple of shots and verifying the club face was square to the target line and then building my setup from there. Then just believing the setup was square and swinging through.

Ball flight was not noticeably higher than the Hogan or Mizuno sets I'm comparing. My misses today were mostly just hangers out to the right, and only one of my trademark monster hooks.

I was able to sneak that quick warm-up and round in before work so it was a quick first effort. I'll have a chance to give them a more detailed workout later in the week.
