  1. Titleist blades have been (and still are) in many Tour bags. I have never hit them, so not sure if they offer any forgiveness or not. I do see them for sale as used sets fairly regularly.
  2. The L4V is legendary. Love the FlyZ+. It sets up very well for me.
  3. Most likely, yes you should have less tendency to hook a 7 wood.
  4. 50, 56, and 60 works for me. I thought it is pretty much the standard setup. I know that lofts in between these have always been around, and have had others in the bag.
  5. I think the lightweight shaft focus has gotten out of hand with irons. I find it very difficult to keep a consistent tempo and keep the shaft on the proper plane with lightweight shafts. But if I want graphite shafts in my irons (for reasons other than weight) I would need to get a custom set in order to get anything off the shelf with something heavier than about a 65 g shaft.
  6. There’s a lot to unpack with this. If your hybrids don’t spin well enough to hold a green, then more hybrids may not solve anything. Keep in mind that the 4 iron you are hitting now is probably equivalent to your 3 iron (or even a 2) when you were younger. So, we’re not talking about an easy shot here. There’s basically 3 choices- a fairway wood, hybrid, or an iron. Maybe a launch monitor will show you which one optimizes spin and forgiveness. Also, experiment with your wedges. There’s no rule that says you must have a lob wedge in the bag. Maybe you might have better consistency hitting half and three quarter swings with an approach wedge. There are a lot of ways to get the job done.
  7. At the Tour level, I thought you got shamed for playing irons that were too big, not too small.
  8. If Cobra stays with the young daredevil image, it’s only a matter of time until the next successful cool kid hits the tour and Cobra takes Rickie’s money and throws it at the new guy. Nobody can stay young for very long.
  9. Most blades made in the 1990s or later will be sufficient for your experiment to see if you will like blades or not.
  10. My experience is the opposite, but it probably depends on the design. I don’t hear or see much chatter with my C130 cart bag.
  11. I don’t think Cobra will be affected by this incident. I don’t know what their financial health is, so I won’t speculate if the company is doing ok or not. They are known for their drivers and woods, much like Taylor Made. Whether that’s enough to support the brand anymore, I don’t know.
  12. He needs a sports psychologist more than a new driver. He’s been wound up too tight for a while now and it’s catching up with him.
  13. I don’t use a 56 or 60 for full shots either. Bad things happened whenever I tried. Also don’t really see much difference in a 3h and 4h at my skill level.
