I wish I could find my swing from the i200 review.  I lost it, it was the best swing I’ve had… it’s in there somewhere, just have to find it.  Currently getting nice push I can’t get to turn over… the season is young.

It’s somewhere in there. Plenty of season to find it…

I've become a believer.  Serially underrated as a manufacturer imo. 

Worth a shot!  They've got an option for everything you're looking for in the iron space and could save a little coin as well.

I can agree both times You and I played you hit them well. The last time you and I played you had improved 100%

Is that the same as the Sun Mountain leather stand bag? Wonder what kind of price they have? I will say it is a good looking bag and IMHO will only look better as it ages

Not sure, they do look very similar.  Either way, it beats neon green with lots of unpaid advertising that a lot of bags come with.

That bag is gorgeous! It's a different color than I would have thought I would like, but I could see carrying it. The price is less than I would have expected after looking at the Wilson site.

I will… but I can’t do Callaway…. I don’t know what it is, but I just can’t.  Or PXG… 

so that leaves, TM, PING, Cobra, Titleist and Mizuno…

Srixon, Tour Edge, Sub 70, Wilson, Hogan... why limit yourself?  Granted, the latter may not be available at fitters, but one could be the magic sauce.  You should definitely try the ZX series.  Also, I know you've been dealing with a few chronic injuries and this might be a good opportunity to see if a composite shaft works. As advertised, mine have effectively eliminated my elbow and shoulder pain.

Exactly one of the reasons I went back to my Jones bag and am fixing to pull the trigger on a Jones Classic. Plus actually the Jones is light enough for me carrying around the range and practice area. I do not carry a lot of stuff so I do have room. I do not need the stand per say since we do have bag racks on the range. On the practice green I can prop it up on one of the light posts on the corner of the green or basically I can lay it down. If for whatever reason I want to go to a mini staff bag I have a Burton plain non scripted. These days I like running low and keeping it under the radar

Not sure I get along with the V Sole very well.

Have you ever tried them?  Are you a digger or scalper?  According to most, that design favors diggers the most and really dosen't offer any significant advantage/disadvantage for scalpers.  Having only hit them off the mat, my fitter was 99% sure I'd have no issue with them but I went to a Srixon Demo and verified just to be sure.  I really like them, and this coming from G410's. The ZX7's or a combo ZX5/ZX7 would be worth a look if available at your fitting.

I have tried them, and the Cleveland wedges.  I’m a bruiser/picker.  Hardly take any turf… maybe the Z Forged, but I’m not ready for a full set of razor blades again…

It's a "vegan leather" bag.  I love the look of it, but not sure how well urethane is going to age, especially compared to real leather.  Price is pretty good on it though.

OHHH--- Yeah I do not know on that either. I know on like the Infiniti staff bags like the one in my pic there was 2 questionable panels that for some reason had plastic over them. Everyone I saw including mine developed a burned look and then peeled looked like crap. I think for new at this stage I am sticking with Jones. Nylon and built sturdy. In fact I am thinking about pulling the trigger on a new Jones Original soon as I clear the shop out some--- The shop clutter has escalated 110% since you saw it.

I am moving the One Length Forged Tech irons to near the top of my “to try list”… I’ve been waiting for cobra to make the MIM in single length, but I doubt they will… unless you are Bryson.

The concept makes a ton of sense to me, and now that they offer the wedges in more than 56 and 60… 🤔

I'd go bag 1, but I'm a big Titleist fanboy. I've never hit Mizunos though, but I hear good things!

PXG woods

Titleist Irons

Cleveland wedges

I have been putting a lot of thought into this  new bag, and I am planning on having the fitter fit me into the JPX Tours 4-GW.  Since I despise offset, I’m going to have them all bent weak 2° Except the GW, make that 1° weak… at 52°.  The top end is still open, some sort of hollow or foam filled for the 2 and 3 irons…

So,

Driver (Open)

2 Hydbrid (CLK) @ 13.75° 

2 iron ( open ) 16°

3 iron ( open ) 20°

4-GW ( JPX Tour 2° weak)

56° T22 Denim Copper

Putter ( a beautiful new L.A.B. 😍)

After today… I think I’m going to add the 16° as a Hybrid, and possibly the 20°… get a hot faced 4 iron as the DI.  
 

As a wise man once said, “I’m not as good as I once was…”

Plus, C. Hoff has a bunch of hybrids…
