How are the grips and shaft feeling? I have a 25 year-old 22⁰ utility iron that I'm 50/50 using.  Had to take it out of the bag because of inconsistent shot patterns. Bit when I hit it well, that thing let the ball soar!

I will say that I honestly just realized that I don't know if I updated this point - thank you for asking!  I play midsize grips in all my clubs, and so blew those on the clubs the night before leaving for the outing we had in Virginia.  

While I can't say it's 100% the grips, the difference in ball flight I was getting from the first swings was pretty amazing.  Admittedly, I had a) no glove on, and b) not properly warmed up before hitting them; but all that said, I had NO snap-hooks to the left the whole 4 days.  I DID still have a baby draw on them, with one that got a little leaky to the right, as well, but the vast majority were straight and strong (other than the one I topped and one I hit 8" behind the ball, lol).

@Rob Person I bought the 3 iron Utility with the KBS graphite shaft, I will let you know how it reacts once I get some more reps under the belt. I have played it for only 18 holes and the shots I did use it on I hit some rockets with control.

So where in your bag does the 3 utility iron fit? What are its close neighbors? Did you replace another club specifically with it?

Short update:

Takomo just sent me a confirmation that another package will be shipped out soon.

🤞 Crossing fingers that this makes it across my doorstep soon, hopefully still this week!

They are en route and expected to be delivered by tomorrow evening.

I carry it as a 3 iron, my irons are 4-Pw, all 3 woods putter and wedges to fill out the set.

I checked the tracking a couple of times today, not much was happening. Finally it popped up in Germany. Now I got a DHL message that it is delayed again. 🤔 So not today then. 

Also, the missing parts for my golf net/cage got finally delivered. Just not to my home address, for whatever reason. So I will have to pick up those in Germany some day. 

I hope this streak of unfortunate events will soon be over and I can at finally enjoy hitting those fine looking woods and see if they deliver on their promise!

Look what showed up today! I’m glad they came today so I’m not stressing about the UPS guy on my birthday tomorrow. I can’t tell you how many times I checked my doorstep this morning 😂

Thank you! As soon as I took this picture.. those boxes didn't stand a chance! I'm going to the simulator tonight and then hitting up the course this weekend. So excited to hit these things.

Finished the birthday off in the simulator.. played 18 at Gozzer ranch and shot a +1! 🔥 

In my warm up I hit some wedges, irons, and then tried the new clubs. I hit 5 balls each with the 3 & 5 wood and I was VERY impressed. I decided to hit the ground running and the results speak for themselves.

First impressions were how nice they felt. I haven’t messed around with fairway woods too much, but these felt AMAZING and very easy to swing. 
 

I have another sim day coming up and these will see the course this weekend. 🔥

Well well well... The 3 wood and 5 wood have played 2 rounds on the course. If I had to choose a word for these clubs I would choose CONFIDENCE. These clubs did exactly what I needed and felt so good. I honestly haven't played too many woods prior to this, but I can assure that these are going to elevate my game faster than Space X is going to space. I didn't know how I would feel about a 5 wood, but it is without a doubt my favorite club to hit at the moment. 🔥

The Takomos have landed!

No reason to worry, the clubs survived the rough landing with ease!

I unboxed and assembled the clubs. So gorgeous to look at:

I love the pattern on top of the clubs most so far! A bit hard to capture on camera. Maybe I'll try with a video another day.
