Have been playing Titleist AP3's with AMT blk stiff shafts for a year. The shafts particularly in 7, 6 & 5 iron are not giving me enuff spin and heigth. Plus Mizuno optomizer and a few fitters are recommending lighter shafts. I have been pretty set on Mizuno Hot Metal PROs after the AP3's. The Nipon N.S. Pro Modus 3 - 105 Reg or Stiff both give good numbers and distance. Im a 'betweener" for Stiff or Reg in this shaft.
So yes I'm a equipment junkie.. Here's the delima I'm in. My son-in-law and a good friend are fitters and work for golf retail outlets. So after many demos with the Mizzy HM Pro's I was pretty set until I had a bad session with them and just decided to give the super game-emprovement (GE) Ping G410's a go. And here we start. The G410 was obviosly easy to hit solid and forgiving on misses and definatly got my spin and heigth #'s UP. So I said why not just go with the easy GE Pings.. So I ordered them in the Modus 105 stiff soft stepped 1X.
Did this before my scheduled fitting at Club Champions (CC). Dummy!! Didn't tell the fitter. Needless to say the fitter was amazing. Prior fitter for PGA pros and a fitter for 20+ years. So he went through my AP3's with my shaft on trackman and got all numbers & dispersions. Then he went throught different shafts with AP3 6-iron. He recommended staying with the Ap3's heads going with Aerotech SteelFiber I80 shafts. The numbers backed this. Told him I was pretty set on switch to Mizzy HM Pros. So we hit the Mizzy. Numbers on a whole were not as good or more so not consistently good. I was a bit tired at that point. But there were glimpes of how I've hit them in past sessions. He persuaded me to stay with the AP3 head in the Aerotech shafts.
Yesterday we had a Mizuno fitting day here at my Club. Smoked the HM Pros in the Modus 105R and numbers were really GOOD. I really want the HM Pro's.. I know the Club Champ guy will be gracious about putting Aerotech's in the Mizzys.. So I can just order the HM Pro's in the Nippon 105R and sell my AP3's... NOW what to do with the Ping G410s that have shipped.. Do I give the G410's a round or 2 and sell as LIKE NEW or just keep them in the box they came and sell as NEW?? You wouldn't put yourself in this predicament, but...
