Not sure if we have talked about this or not.

 

I'm having sellers/buyers remorse today.

 

I got rid of a set of Callaway X Forged, and picked up a set of TM Rocketbladz. I played yesterday, and couldn't hit the broad side of the barn, with my irons. Sitting here thinking why o why did I do that.

 

I'm actually thinking about my next set of irons, yes I am a 'ho.

 

Any ideas to help ease the pain, besides drinking? :P

 

Anybody else gone thru this?

I would have gone through that except I didn't get rid of my clubs that "work" first. I bought a set I wanted to try, decided I didn't like them and sold them. My clubs do so well for me, why am I always looking for something else? I just like clubs I guess.

Yup, I'm always in the mindset of try before you sell instead of try before you buy. Don't get rid of the old stuff until you know you want keep the new stuff. Plus that's how you build back up bags :)

 

That being said, did the bladez have the same shafts as your cally's? Could be an issue of an improper fit instead of something wrong with that set of irons and your game.

Now you tell me how this works! (j/k)

That wouldn't work so well buying a brand new set though. I found a set of MP-53s at Golf Mart that had very little play on them. They had dings from someone carelessly dropping them into the bag and regular bag chatter, but almost no wear on the face. The original grips were still like new. They were dirty. Nobody bothered to even clean them. They were $179 so I figured couldn't go wrong whether I liked them or not. They cleaned up really nice. Looked better than I expected. I didn't like them though, mostly because of the shafts, and sold them on Ebay for $325! Just one of those things you stumble onto every once in a while. I bet they meant to price them at $279 and someone made a mistake. When I checked out, the guys behind the counter both complained that they didn't realize they were back there and would have bought them for themselves for that price if they had seen them. Oh well! :P

You're kidding right. Think of the room you're asking this question in. The proper question is; How many times has this happened to you? B)

I actually wasted half a session with a therapist talkin about my irons. And the son of a b*tch doesn't even golf.

I would pay for a transcript or recording of that session, double if it included the therapist's phone call to his colleague after you left! "Dude, you won't believe this guy that was just here. . ." :P

I never get rid of a set. That is probably why I have 7 full sets of irons all blades. 5 sets are Mac Gregor 1 set Wilson FG-17 Tour Blades and 1 set Power Bilt Citations. The only set of blades I got rid of that I regretted was a set of MP-33 s I hit them as good as anything else I had but sold them for a substantial profit. My wife of nearly 25 years dont say anything about it. She calls my club room Golf club Hell. She says it could be worse I could be filling up 2 trash cans with empty beer cans or whiskey bottles and chasing lewd women

Driver Homna  G1- X Stock Homna Regular shaft

This seems like a good place to ask this. I'm thinking of getting new irons this year. I'm currently playing Mizuno MX25's. I'm thinking about the MP59's. I'm not sure if my present skill level is appropriate for these irons. I normally shoot 86-82. Once in a while I can get in the high 70's. Is this an iron I can grow with, or is it not for me, yet?

 

Trying to avoid a regret. :)

I have been a fan of KBS Tour shafts for the past year. I have also been a fan of the Mizuno MP33's'. I had some MP32's on KBS Tour Black Nickel. I loved this but really wanted the MP33's. I sold the MP32 heads and bought some MP33's. I of course could not wait to hit them so I went and played them with the X100's shafts that was in them. OMG I loved these things and played them for some 3 weeks before the weather and schedule worked out to strip the chrome off and refinish them in gun blue and mount them on the KBS shafts.

 

Today was the first day that I could play with the new combination. I went out on the course and was going to play a few holes while I waited. I could not hit the ball. Thin shot after thin shot, so I went to the range. Same thing. I was very disappointed. I loved the feel of the shaft but I could not hit the ball. After about 15 blades it occurred to me that I was wanting to feel the shafts kick and was overswinging and thus getting out of tempo and not making good contact. Once I realized my error and calmed down. I started hitting them pure.

 

I hit the ball well today after that and do not have any regrets now but I remembered heading to the range thinking about the regrets I was having about changing the shafts. I am very happy with this change now.

I'm in that same neighborhood S&B - got fit for MP-59's last year and love 'em. You know when you hit 'em good and you know when you don't. On those magical days when everything's working - they're a joy to play with!
