I'm a digger and the courses are here generally pretty soft (clay that stays wet forever), so I'll be going with wide soles and bounce.  And I like a 50/54/58 setup.  The only thing I'm worrying about is that the mid-grind 54* (widest sole for that loft) has only 6* of bounce.  That seems low for a club I'll use out of the sand.  Does the wider sole make up for it?

 

@Popeye64 gave you the goods, I just feel compelled to stick my nose in.

I have a Maltby Design 60* that I use, its the predecessor to the M-series+, without the DBM treatment.  Absolutely love the wedge, its awesome.  My course has clay based soil also, it works in the wet, and it works in the dry. 

Also like it quite well out of the sand.  My course has something firmer/denser sand, I've also played courses with finer/softer sand, it works for me in both.

And it'll spin the ball rather nicely.

The M890 arrived yesterday.  Enough chit chat, let's get to the pics... The Golfworks team did a great job of building the club.  I did get it built to 42" with the LL flex shaft.  Longer t

So I finally got a chance to compare the TS-1 with the TM P770. It was just on the launch monitor at PGATSS. I was able to pair the P770 with the same shaft that I have in my TS-1's. That's the TT DG

So to my complete surprise, I got a little something in the mail today.. I clocked out for lunch and went and built me a golf club.  Right now it's glued up. I'll finish the ferrule edge later.

Good to know.  Honestly, these things are so cost effective, you can really afford to experiment with them.  They're basically half the price of a Vokey in the most expensive configuration I tried.
In case you had any curiosity to know more about the TSWs here is a review post that might help.

A Trackman session with her coach confirmed our suspicions.  150 is the new count-on distance.  She just needs to trust the new ball-flight.  

For $137.34 built and shipped, I'd have a hard time not recommending this driver to any lower-speed player.  Her coach was pretty impressed with it as well, and she's on staff with Titleist.

Well, she did it yesterday.  She shot 36 and got past the 150 mark.  She did it by keeping the 890 in the bag on holes with trouble short of the green and pitched it on to make easy 4s, but took advantage of holes with more of an opening and put it right near the front of the green.  Now she moves back to 200 and will get to hit a few more drivers.

Love the forum. Also am from very south of your guys. I have built a Maltby STf 5 wood, which I carry & for my son the new STi2 irons 6 - GWwith True Temper Score shafts R flex with Golf Pride MCC Plus 4 grips & M+ wedge 56 degrees with 12 of bounce as his first ever golf set. Firstly, loved building them with him. They look brilliant. BUT what I was shocked with was the performance. I have Callaway X18 & when I hit his #7 iron it was easily 10 metres (sorry)  longer. Question now is how do I get them off him.

I am sold on Maltby & looking for a splurge on myself. Thinking TS-2, maybe TS-1, but having read @Popeye64 am seriously thinking PTM with the DBM finish. Loved the photos here on them.

They are only down to a few sets left of the PTM Black. I just picked up another set myself before they disappear.
The PTM fell victim to a run away best seller in the TS line. Its really a shame because in doing fittings I would sell three sets of PTMs to one set of the TS line. It was a do all, be all, no nonsense iron that damn near everyone could hit well. Wasn't fancy with understated good looks.
Will be interesting to see what comes next. Because the TS line knocked out almost three heads. The MMB-17, the PTM and the TE is just holding on.

The next iron out will be a players forging. Details on it have been minimal, but expect something that could replace the TE.
Heard one more order for the DBM heads has been placed and when thats gone so are they. The TE will drop out next.
The MMB replacement is down the road still.
Britt was saying that development time has been far longer due to delays and back ups at the factories with shut downs and supply chain issues.

I saw the PTMs were being discontinued and was surprised. They are such a great design. Love mine, and they're going to give the SpeedZones a run for their money this offseason.

While I have absolutely NO intentions of moving away from my TS-1's anytime soon, it would be cool to see them do just a straight player's blade and/or CB. Possibly something with a split set possibility in mind. Something like the set version of the TSW.. or just a completely new design.

All of that might just be wishful thinking though.. time will tell

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

I don't have Maltby's YET!!

I am looking for advice on buying a set of irons, a driver and maybe upgrading my hybrids.

I have always used "hand me down" clubs from my dad, who plays around with shafts, grips, amateur club building, etc.  I remember seeing Austad's and Golfsmith catalogs when growing up and visiting him, once i grew up and moved out.

After looking at a ton of articles and things found on the web, i plan to visit multiple demo days in the area, and plan to get a full fitting at PGA Superstore and another local store (or two).

Based on the price, I am seriously considering Maltbys, but want to know how to compare what I find at fittings and retailers to these clubs.  I really like the looks and reviews on the Maltby KE4 S because I am not good enough (in my opinion) to play with a players club, as my handicap is in the low 20s and I don't "shape" shots. I just want consistent new clubs that don't cost $1500.

 

Any advice on how to order based on recommendations and specs that I might obtain from club fittings?

Any questions to ask when i go to demo days and fittings? 

Any things to look for when looking at Callaways, Pings, Taylor Made, Titleist? (those are the demo days i have on my calendar in the next few weeks)

Any other things to consider?

 

Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated - and i promise to take a ton of pics to post here when I finally pull the trigger and order clubs after Christmas! 🙂

I highly recommend going through the custom shop at Golfworks website. If you are unsure about what you want built they will guide you through. Its a great deal for a custom built set of clubs and they will fully stand behind the build. Can't go wrong.

+1 on the Custom Shop. To narrow down which shaft, you could see if there is a Mizuno shaft optimizer to try. They fit it on an iron and based on how you swing, it gives a list of shafts that could work based on swing speed and transition. Good starting place

+1 more on the Custom Shop.  They just built a driver for my 13 year old daughter, and she's loving it.
