Interesting experience with m4 rental set
I am finishing up a vacation in grand cayman and felt the need for a round so I played 18 at the Ritz Carlton Norman course. I normally play ap2 with x100 amt and have played x100 for over 20 years (I’m 35). The rental set was all M4, kbs max 85 stiff shafts in the irons. It felt almost easy to hit these irons. Seemed to be basically point and shoot. I hit them lower than my irons and I think a comparable amount of spin (I’m a high ball, high spin player).
I enjoyed them so much I looked them up after the round, only to find they are a high launch, high spin shaft. I can’t get my head around why they went lower, but they did for sure. They were also easier to hit, not to say mine are hard to hit, but it sure was a whole lot easier to correct a bad swing.
Can anyone shed some light?
