  1. I have played the Kuro Kage Silver TiNi X-flex. Feels like swinging a 4x4.
  2. They were too flat. They got bent between .5 0 - 2.0 degrees up.
  3. Went back to the fitter. We spent about 2.5 hours working on the irons. He started off by saying that if it wasn't right, that they would refund me the money for the clubs, or reshaft them if needed at no cost to me. To hear that right away set me at ease. I warmed up and he noticed that the toe was catching the turf early. This seemed off to him and he had me hit the same setup that I have with the irons being 2 degrees up right. The five swings I had with them, everything was a big hook. This happened when I was originally fitted. The fitter still believed that I needed the irons bent uprigh

Doesn't sound particularly pertinent in this discussion, but you never know. Taking more of a full t
  6. > @webwarmiller said: > Where you hitting ProV1's and/or Zstars when getting fit or were you hitting range balls. If the latter, then you were fit into irons that work best with range balls and not what you actually play. I was hitting Callaway Chrome Soft that they only use for fittings. I know that they are softer and spin more, but not that much of a discrepancy.
  7. > @ChipNRun said: > If your old irons had the Dynamic Gold S300 shafts, they were a heavy 130 grams; but, they were actually a tad softer in flex compared to other OEMs so-called Stiff shafts (problem of no industry standard).

Are you possibly losing clubhead speed with the X flex, even though it
  8. > @jvincent said: > If you hit your old 7i on the course at the same time as your new one do you still have the same distance gap? Yes, it's the same distance gap. Not only with the 7i but with all of them. I generally take two more clubs than I used to use on the same hole.
  9. To Clarify: -I'm using the same balls as before. ProV1 and ZStar -Used my old 7 iron as a benchmark during the fitting -Only changed swing AFTER they new irons didn't produce.
  10. This is also posted on reddit r/golf Question for those that either build clubs or have had fittings. I recently went to a full bag fitting and everything is working great, outside of the new irons. I switched from Adams a4 irons with s300 stiff shafts to Srixon z785 irons with modus3 120x shaft. I am about an 11 handicap prior to the fitting. The fitter used 7 irons and I hit using a Trackman 4, with the wind negated, from a hitting bay into the range. When I got fit I was carrying my old irons 175 yards. The Srixons were going on average 173 yards flying higher, spinning more, better
  11. Long story short, I had two kids and haven't played seriously for about 4 years, I was a Mid-handicapper. My wife Ok'd me for a fitting and new clubs. I live on the Illinois/Wisconsin border. I have been looking at True Spec, Club Champion and PGASS - Tour Van in Vernon Hills for the fitting. Has anyone done fittings at any of these or could point me to a different place? Looking for recommendations. I am most likely building the set on my own, just want to hit all the options.
  12. I recently broke the shaft of my old driver and am in the market for a new one. I went to Dick's Sporting Goods today and hit with the launch monitor. I hit a Cobra Amp, Adams Fast 12, and a Callaway Diablo Octane. All had stock stiff shafts and My average club head speed was 109.7, my average ball speed was 145, and my spin rate was about 3800, and the launch angle was about 13.8. I was wondering what shafts would be recommended to lower my spin rate and any other driver heads to try. Thanks in advance.
  13. help for a friendDoes anyone have any information on the Precise S10 Ladies clubs set? A female friend asked me about this set that is on ebay, and I know nothing about it. Any helpful information would be greatly welcomed.
