  1. Dear mods, I found no way to delete my account. Please let me know how to do that. I'm most definitely done with contributing.

I hope they were lying to me. They won't even make a 50º option, so I'm pretty sure they're telling you the truth.

I know you're talking about the zz-lite, but I've been a 28 a ways back, and I can assure you that unless you are the cruddiest driver in history, you don't shoot a +22, be happy, and say your irons aren't cutting it. Now, I could be wrong, but what you do have is _good feel_ and that's awesome. But the technology has moved on, and nothing you pick in the G/i range is going to be any worse than the eye2. It's a classic iron, and the all-timer, but 30 years of engineering has made serious advances. I strongly suggest that you go to a golf store or pro shop, or whatever, and give some light shafts a try. Don't worry about the heads _at all_. They'll be fine. Try something with a modus 105 in it. See if you like it. Try something with a Dynamic Gold in it, like an XP95, and see how that goes. And try something with a ProjectX lz in it. Then, you can at least build what you like in more contemporary terms. From there, it's easy. If you asked me to make a "right now" recommendation, i20s with CFS are can't-lose. i200 with a Modus 105 will probably fill you with the feel you want. And any of the G-series will be heads that when you aren't middled, will show you why they're better.
  4. S55's with that shaft will be cheaper than a re-shaft. Reshafting 5+ year old irons is never a good financial choice. The question you have to ask yourself is what you want... and if it's extra distance, I'm not seeing the point. If it's feel, great. But I think you're going to be severely disappointed if the x100 is for extra yards. You're going to fire it lower, and unless you need to get trajectory DOWN, you're going to lose control of your descent angle for 5 more yards. Here's a bit of advice... the Edwin Watts guy doesn't get a sale if he thinks you're dead on. Unless you're not hitting the right window, this is him just feeding your ego.

Make sure whoever enters them gets that put in the computer correctly. Otherwise, there's a lot more variance. Mine luckily were less than a point off -- all of them came in about d1.3, so I was ok with it. But I also noticed DD didn't enter the weights explicitly except for one wedge. Sure enough, that wedge was d4.0. It's all a matter of getting **exactly** what you want onto the build ticket. > > > Mat, > I found and interesting article, never heard this before........ > MOI Matching as an Alternative to Swing Weight Matched Clubs > Matching all clubs in a set to their MOI has become a viable alternative to swing weight matching for many golfers. MOI matching may also be thought of roughly as building the clubs in a set to progressively increase swing weights from long to short irons in the set. > > Candidates for MOI matching over swing weight matching can be golfers who: > > Go in and out of consistency issues with the irons > Suffer from occasional-to-frequent bouts of pulling short iron shots offline > Sense less comfort and consistency with the short irons vs other irons in the set There is at least one monster thread on this. It's a reasonable approach. If you want to make it easy on yourself, just order everything in 0.5sw increases. Thus your 5 is a d2, 6 is d2.5, etc until you get to your PW. It's not perfect, but I'm not sure it's worth it. I've tried it myself, and I found it to be ok -- but don't go to any great lengths to do it. After you MOI, then you start to wonder why you're not SLI, then your grips... then suddenly you have a case of the Chambeaus.

  8. A couple things... first, you need a club that you can hit consistently. If that's a 3, 5, DI, whatever... you need an advancement club. Second, a 3 wood will roll out, where a 5 wood will spin and stop. If you're getting the same distances, you've got something going on that is amiss. Maybe you're just confident with that 5 wood. Finally, the reason you stop at a 4-iron and not play a 3 is you can't elevate a 3-iron enough. Smart play. That's the nice part about a 19h; it's versatile, and it can "rescue" you in a lot of odd situations. If it were me, I'd _take the shaft out of the 5, play it in the 3w head_, then I'd play the 19h or if you play in windy conditions, get a "chunky" low-flying iron for rollout. (Remember, those chunky 'driving' irons are not stop and holds.)
  9. I saw this electric cart in their catalog, but I haven't been able to find any information about it. Do these exist in the wild?

  11. In short, you just bunch them all up and pull the string? Interesting. Would be handy for bags in the car for those not willing to put individual covers on. TIL-GolfWRX
  12. So I see these things are "iron covers"… Say what? It's a huge neoprene thing... is it for one? Or more? Any pictures of what the idea is?
  13. > With no CTP would Ping use the toe and hosel weights to increase SW? Yes. That is exactly what they do.
  14. Ugh. The point is walking. If you want to have a fully automated push cart for your bag, fine. But the lack of walking **is** the problem. Not talking about necessary mobility assistance, either.
  15. > @Steele47 said: > Notice he did not say far superior to his S55's. They are far superior to my S55's.
  16. > @JerryTBall said: > I wonder if Salas or Shibuno, who won women’s British open were playing BP’s? Welp, thanks for that spoiler. I'll erase that off the DVR now. Shibuno was playing 210s.
  17. Played the 410LST today. I'm not allowed to say the words I want to say here. The 400LST is excellent, and feels fabulous. And yet, the 410 for me today was SO good today off my misses... I hit one today off the bottom of the face, and it went 90%. I outdrove people with a >1 inch centre miss. That's so far out of what I expected, I can tell you I know where my bonus is going.
  18. That sign has so many subtleties that reinforce so many things...

Fantastic irons. > ProVX and I know you might say that's the reason they sound so bad. Well as I told someone else if that's the case I'll sell the irons before I switch balls. The performance of the PV1X is unequaled in my experience. There are just as good of irons out there in the same category that will sound much better. Will be demoing the T200 and T300 with them soon and probably the Hot Metal Pros. > I played the 900 HM two years ago with the VX and no issue on sound. > > Try one Bridgestone BX before you sell.
  20. Anyone have some follow up on the crossover? The hybrid has been well received, but I'm considering a 23º... and I'm also considering a DG 120 instead of the Tensei. Thoughts?
  21. Managed to trash Ogio, and have everyone lose confidence in their quality controls and customer service. At least when the marketing department abused the word "epic", there was a good driver they put out. Otherwise, what a waste of momentum. I won't touch them.
  22. > @beluga99 said: > Enjoying all the golf related banter. Carry on Blade and Cardy. > As an aside, what specs are people ordering these in? Anyone going for the no upcharge shafts i.e DG 120 or rolling with tried and true? Tried and true -- S400 TI. I might get the 120 in the 4 cross, but 5i->58 all the same.
  23. BTW, this group might be more interested than most about iron head covers that are rather limited. Ping's online store is offering the JP version. Look for "online exclusives".
  24. > I messed around with them again today to help warm up for my never ending 3 Wood search (so far TS2 seems the winner with the F9 Tour in a close second) at my PGASS which has a PW, 7, and 4 iron. I really think I might do the combo set with my iBlades because these just feel so good and give me all the numbers I want to see in an iron. Not sure I can pull that off financially till they hit the BST, but every time I hit them I fall more in love. Might just do a 8-P combo since that’s financially doable. There's a lot more that's financially doable if you stop fapping around over 3-woods. ¯\\_(ツ)_/¯
