    Glad saw the words recoil shaft since got my 919’s coming tomorrow, no offense, but I’m not a fan. I had one put in my 4 iron 785 to see he felt, lost 15 yards and was a guess where ended up. So I’m happier with PX LZ or a Nippon, they seem to be fairly elbow/wrist friendly. Got PX LZ coming in 919’s.

    I change clubs too often to be able to update my signature but here’s what I currently play
    919 tour irons & 919 forged yes I have both sets
    Ping G400 max G400 7 wood G400 3 hybrid
    Ping glide wedges

    My 919t set arrived today, like the bp's better ... one loooong range session fwiw

    Do tell. Did the 919 Tours win any categories? Feel, launch, dispersion, etc...

    I think it is not a fair comparison because the 919T's are in lighter recoil graphite, which I wanted to try
    Great smooth swings produced perfect high fades or draws but when I went after it the clubhead became lost to me and I had some clunkers
    I'm going to toss in one of my stronger pull sets of graphite iron shafts and try, maybe Fuji MCI 120x's
    Feel was outstanding
    I will say that now that I am used to the blueprints, dare I say the 919t's seem shovel sized if you can believe it

    Thanks Cardie. I have the 919 Tours and have hit the BPs and can believe the size comparison. My Ping IEs next to the 919s aren't that much bigger. Love the Tours though. The BPs are very, very alluring.

    Mine finally arrived today. Took them out for a quick nine and I have to say they are as good as everyone was saying they were. I was surprised at the forgiveness on the few mis hits I had. Love the heavier swingweight. Distances were very good.

    Get immediately out of this forum!! Your logic spirit could be catchy!

    Never putted so well as these days, so I got a new putter on the bay. It is a normal WRX routine for g sake!!

    I found a used set I could not pass up and although I have tested a demo blueprint against my P7TW and the P7TW’s won I still bought the blueprints. I unboxed them last night and immediately pulled the dynamic golds and installed Nippon 120 S.
    I plan on giving them a second go against the P7TW’s now that they are built to exactly the same specs.

    Do it...although I'm not the player Cardie is my last two rounds have been about 8 strokes better per round. My misses are better and consistency has improved considerably. And of all the new blade options, I think the BPs blade length, topline and squarer toe look best.

    Woo hoo! Mine came yesterday while I was checking in to play skins. Put them into play immediately and birdied the first 2/3 holes. They are every bit as good as advertised, if you can hit anywhere near the center of the face. Pretty stoked.

    Who needs a reason? Going to sell some excess clubs .... and also get a set of the 620mb's. Loved them when I hit them yesterday

    Hey how about a set for an in town guest ( hint hint) seriously I had not checked out this thread. those irons favor my 2000 Dunlop Aussie blades--- I also think I can hit the deuce with that set because I can hit any of my Mac blade 2irons and can hit that Aussie 2 iron--- and seriously I do not consider myself a ball striker

    Cardi, when I had my BP’s, I did not even think about swing weight, as I naïvely thought they come with what ping makes them, that’s the science they had behind them and made them a great club! So mine came SW 0, guess that is stock. So say my 919’s come in with a certain SW, say 2, and the shafts work well for them. Should I order a set of BP’s if I want to go down that road again with that same setup? Just looking for humble opinions!

    Jerry, stock is D2. Make sure whoever enters them gets that put in the computer correctly. Otherwise, there's a lot more variance. Mine luckily were less than a point off -- all of them came in about d1.3, so I was ok with it. But I also noticed DD didn't enter the weights explicitly except for one wedge. Sure enough, that wedge was d4.0. It's all a matter of getting exactly what you want onto the build ticket.

    14 Pings. Blueprints are incredibly good. Fetch is the most underrated putter on the market. Don't @ me.

    Thanks, yeah when weighed mine were D0 so seemed light compared to Z forged. Not sure, but I know I was one of first few to get my set. I have to be honest I’m not 100% what my preferred weight is supposed to be, I need a second look next fit session, possibly a second party opinion.

    I am loving mine at D3 with the wedge at D4. Compared to my previous irons (D0) they feel like I am hitting the ball with a soft feeling sledghammer. I have literally never hit an iron that felt like this in my life.

    **** - the more I keep reading this thread the more tempted I am. Currently hitting Apex Pro 16. I hit the BP once and liked, but they did not have the right shaft for me to try. I need to go and hit them again.

    Mat,
    I found and interesting article, never heard this before........
    MOI Matching as an Alternative to Swing Weight Matched Clubs
    Matching all clubs in a set to their MOI has become a viable alternative to swing weight matching for many golfers. MOI matching may also be thought of roughly as building the clubs in a set to progressively increase swing weights from long to short irons in the set.

    Candidates for MOI matching over swing weight matching can be golfers who:

    Go in and out of consistency issues with the irons
    Suffer from occasional-to-frequent bouts of pulling short iron shots offline
    Sense less comfort and consistency with the short irons vs other irons in the set

    Cardi, when I had my BP’s, I did not even think about swing weight, as I naïvely thought they come with what ping makes them, that’s the science they had behind them and made them a great club! So mine came SW 0, guess that is stock. So say my 919’s come in with a certain SW, say 2, and the shafts work well for them. Should I order a set of BP’s if I want to go down that road again with that same setup? Just looking for humble opinions!

    Jerry, stock is D2. Make sure whoever enters them gets that put in the computer correctly. Otherwise, there's a lot more variance. Mine luckily were less than a point off -- all of them came in about d1.3, so I was ok with it. But I also noticed DD didn't enter the weights explicitly except for one wedge. Sure enough, that wedge was d4.0. It's all a matter of getting exactly what you want onto the build ticket.

    I found and interesting article, never heard this before........
    MOI Matching as an Alternative to Swing Weight Matched Clubs
    Matching all clubs in a set to their MOI has become a viable alternative to swing weight matching for many golfers. MOI matching may also be thought of roughly as building the clubs in a set to progressively increase swing weights from long to short irons in the set.

    That's what I did
    @Howard Jones and @TomWishon are the experts
    Lots of posts on here that will help

    **** - the more I keep reading this thread the more tempted I am. Currently hitting Apex Pro 16. I hit the BP once and liked, but they did not have the right shaft for me to try. I need to go and hit them again.

    @Kball10 ... the blueprints are way softer than those

    MOI Matching as an Alternative to Swing Weight Matched Clubs
    Matching all clubs in a set to their MOI has become a viable alternative to swing weight matching for many golfers. MOI matching may also be thought of roughly as building the clubs in a set to progressively increase swing weights from long to short irons in the set.

    Candidates for MOI matching over swing weight matching can be golfers who:

    Go in and out of consistency issues with the irons
    Suffer from occasional-to-frequent bouts of pulling short iron shots offline
    Sense less comfort and consistency with the short irons vs other irons in the set

    There is at least one monster thread on this. It's a reasonable approach. If you want to make it easy on yourself, just order everything in 0.5sw increases. Thus your 5 is a d2, 6 is d2.5, etc until you get to your PW. It's not perfect, but I'm not sure it's worth it. I've tried it myself, and I found it to be ok -- but don't go to any great lengths to do it. After you MOI, then you start to wonder why you're not SLI, then your grips... then suddenly you have a case of the Chambeaus.

    14 Pings. Blueprints are incredibly good. Fetch is the most underrated putter on the market. Don't @ me.

    What this thread has definitely sold me on is trying heavier swingweights in my irons. Sending my S55’s back to PING this winter to beef up those CTP’s.

    Former professional golfer. Current amateur human being. Reformed club ho.

    In the bag:

    PING. Lots of PING.
