    fitting? haha, I am not paying for a fitting unless I get to be outside on grass with Trackman, not many options in Iowa for that.



    I test on course, only thing that tells me what I need to know.



    I love the 815's but just recently put in the Epic 5W to replace the 3H. I like the 5W better off the tee. I love my 4H, just don't seem to get on well with a 4 iron. That is my toughest place in the bag also, but finally seem to have a decent transition from wood to hybrid to iron

    Just stopped by GS/GG and hit mizzy shaft optimizer. Rec'd the Ctaper lite x and Nippon Pro modus 105X. Only had time to hit handful of 900forged with the ctaper and it was VERY nice. Carry distance was about 1/2 club longer (MP53's is about 174 and was right on about 179-180 with the 900f with ctaper lites).



    EDIT: just got email from our club that Cally doing trackman fitting in a couple weeks at the driving range. Signed up!

    How's the Epic 5 wood?



    I'm considering either that or the Sub Zero 5 wood. I'm not in love with my 15 degree SZ 3 wood yet. Still dialing it in and may throw a Rogue I/O in it.



    What part of Iowa you in? I'm in the Illinois Quad Cities but could travel...

    South Central, 20 minutes south of Des Moines.



    I am loving the 5W, got home in 2 the other day from 231 on the par 5 2nd, then use it on a couple short par 4's off the tee.



    I have the SZ 3+ and it came with the Fuji Pro, liked it much better with the I/O 70, but I am just hitting the T800's straight, so have that in all 3 currently. It is funny, the SZ 3+ head is like 10 more CC's than the regular 5W, but with the heads shaped differently, and the SZ 3+ having a slightly taller face, they head size looks about the same on the 2 clubs, which I really like.



    I would stick that I/O in, bet you like it better.



    We are discussing a WRX Iowa outing, will keep you posted.

    Thanks man, can say the same about yours. I finally hit a 17 M1 driver this weekend, and while I did not like it as much as the Epic, to me it was a dramatic improvement over the 2016 version. I see you have the "manly" version of the shaft...lol.



    I really want to hear what you think about those irons. Have you had any time on course yet?

    lol yea the shaft is incredible -- both in the driver and the fairway. the irons are some of the best to come out of TM in quite some time in my view. feel great, long irons (3,4,5,6) want to go straight and hold a great line, the shorter irons (7,8,9,P) are workable and feel simply incredible (even with a 'cavity'). i hit 12/18 GIR the first time out with them but, could've easily been 15/18 -- 3 were on the fringe/light rough around the green. i have to get the short irons bent a few *'s stronger tho b/c they're launching a tad higher than i prefer -- and there's a distinct gap from the 7 and 6 irons since that's where my 770/750 split happens. all in all i'm truly glad i picked these up.

    So Warrick, now that you have had a little time with the Modus shafts in your irons, would love to hear your thoughts now.

    I have been a bit inconsistent with iron play this spring, but have only played in temps above 50 a few of the 15+ rounds I have played. It has been difficult to get grooved, and find the tempo I am looking for.



    I found something Sunday on our second 18, shot 6 over with 3 doubles. I was trying to be too smooth with the change over, and found getting back to a bit more aggressive started to show me some things I really, really liked.



    Definitely a better feel in the wedges than the 130 c-taper.



    I am excited about everything in the bag.



    Also had 28 putts with the new flatstick on Sunday afternoon.

    I started to have some inconsistencies with the 5W, going back to the trusted set up of the 3H-4H, 2 new Epic hybrids on the way, 5W out/sold.



    Modus 125 are a dream, have them in 5, all the way through LW.



    finishing my supply of 2016 TPX, then moving to TP5X.

    Warrick, did you go with the 125 wedge shafts or just the same shafts through your irons?

    Planning to reshaft my 770s...dumping the modus 130. I'm nervous about the 125 though, as I'm a long time Ctaper guy.

    Nope, just have the normal 125 PW shaft in my wedges.



    I was nervous also, but seem to have found my match. I absolutely love them.

    My only concern with the 125s is that people seem to somehow compare them to dynamic gold and Ctapers.....not sure how that is possible as DG and Ctapers seem so different to me.



    I might re-shaft one club and see how it goes before doing the entire set.

    I am sure everyone has missed updates in my awesome thread....lol.



    Not a lot has changed, added the Epic hybrids in June to replace the 815's, really liking them.



    I shot a career low 69 on July 4th, and am playing my best ever. I would say around a 5 on home course, but game does not travel that great, working on it. I would guess I am more like a 7-8 realistically, but am moving in the right direction. I struggle with green reading, have an astigmatism, and bad depth perception (Laser rangefinder has helped). When I get on undulated greens, I struggle a bit, again, working on it.



    I sold a ton of back up equipment and some clothes, had a little over 1k in PP, so decided to get another set of my irons/wedges, new putter, just dabbling with new shafts, and wedge gaping. I had to spend the PP funds before my wife bought a new fridge....ha.



    New JPX 900F - 5-P - T7 48/8, 53/10, 58/12 - PX LZ 6.5 SSx1 - NDMC blk/wht

    New Odyssey Red 7s - 34" black shaft- Flatso Mid - will be tanked with 2-25g o-works weights.



    Winter project is to send all 4 Epics to Continental, for matte black, with carbon fade, removal of speed steps and chevron. I will be playing the same clubs next year.

    Season is about wrapped, supposed to be 67 here Sunday, may be one of the last to play outdoors this season, with a possible exception here and there....



    I played the 900F and T7 set all year, have 2 sets now, one with Modus 125, other with PX LZ 6.5 SSx1, will be playing these irons/wedges for a while. I checked out the MP18 line and P790's, no dice Epic driver, 3+ and 3H firmly in the bag, have been all season. I tested a 2017 M1, and G400 this year, no dice. The 3+ is a staple, as is the 3H. I am a pretty low ball hitter, so tried the new MP18 flihi, immediately ordered 4-5-6, and dumped the Epic 4H to the corner of my office.



    Not a lot changed, just some swaps in that gap between 3H and 5 iron, but feel good about all of it now. Ball is TP5x, grabbed a new Silencer for next season, mine is over 3 years old.



    I played my best golf ever, hdcp dropped, finished season at 60.6% GIR, and 31.6 putts per round. Grint has my cap at 4.9, but I did not get all of the rounds in, especially missed some higher scores from tougher courses, and our home track is rated 69, at about 6200 yds, flat greens. I do feel like a 5 at home, but more like a 9 other places, working on getting the game to travel better. I did shoot 2 mid-70's rounds on tougher, longer course this year, so moving in the right direction. I am not a good green reader, undulation gets me in a bit of trouble.



    Bag will go in same as it is now, except, about to get freaky with driver-3 wood.



    I have 2 Tensei Pro Orange shafts coming this week, 60s for driver 70s for 3+, having driver built at 47" and 3+ at 44", try the Brooke choke up method with the CB shafts. I should have them built and on course for Sunday's round.



    I also moved to the Odyssey Black 7s, tanked to 380 with with stock Winn Mid red grip, putting really well right now. I have not used anything other than a big SS grip for year, loving the smaller grip - thx RK

    I just got the shipping notice for the 3W shaft, will have the chance to test both Tensei Pro Orange this weekend, so stoked, thought it would only be indoor testing this winter.



    One more note.



    I got a chance to play a round with fellow member "ladahl" (Lance) a few weeks back here in Iowa, and a buddy of his. Lance is a great dude, look forward to get a chance to play with him again, and more fellow members next season.







    I need redemption.

    I just got the shipping notice for the 3W shaft, will have the chance to test both Tensei Pro Orange this weekend, so stoked, thought it would only be indoor testing this winter.



    One more note.



    I got a chance to play a round with fellow member "ladahl" (Lance) a few weeks back here in Iowa, and a buddy of his. Lance is a great dude, look forward to get a chance to play with him again, and more fellow members next season.







    I need redemption.




    Youre going to really like the Orange. Put a v3 on. Feels extremely smooth. One of the best shafts I’ve ever played.

    Great thread, and nice recap of the season. Green reading is also a weakness of mine. Trying to work on that. Love the bag and set up. Always keen to see what you're playing. Hope it stays sunny for a few more weeks.

    What didn't you like about the MP-18?




    The MMC and SC are chunky, did not like the look of the 9-P at address, just nothing special. I played MP5's last year, did not feel any better.



    The 900F are still a great feeling one piece forging, and the 9-P look great at address for a CB.



    The MP18 flihi are awesome though.



    I did not hit the blades, don't need to go down that route again.

    Hey Warrick, I am a fellow 900F user and was thinking of making the change to the MP18 line, your comments have me thinking. I find that I use the 4 iron mainly on tighter short 4's but the blade length is a little long as well as the 5 iron but the shorter clubs look spot on, do you think the 4 & 5 Fli HI's blend in well?

    Yes I do, actually have the 6 now also. They are not quite as "satinized" as the 900F, but they are not all shiny, head size is comparable. I really like the set up, and they blend well IMO.



    Don't get me wrong, the MMC and SC are nice, SC feels great, but the 900F scoring irons look better behind the ball, and the 900F also feel awesome when flushed. I wanted to buy more Mizuno Irons, just because they are new Mizuno irons, but no need, 2 sets of 900F and T7's will keep me good for years.



    Here is a couple pics - flihi is on the right, and on the top (both 5 irons).
