  1. 1. City and State? Lincoln Calif 2. Handicap? 11.7 3. Are you able to test equipment on a golf course with one week of its receipt? YES. Member and live within the Catta Verdera Golf course community. 4. Current Iron setup? Just replaced my Titleist T200s with Epon 706's 5. What is the top thing you look for when buying new irons? Performance - Ball speed, smash factor, trajectory, dispersion, launch (height & spin) reasonable forgiveness & Looks 6. Do you agre
  2. PLAYING BIG equipment... I just realized I've gone really BIG.. Not only BIG with the irons, but also with the putter.... Has actually happen by circumstance. Driver just like all of us - 460cc - Ping 410 Irons, by circumstance. Was playing the Titleist T200s. long from heal to toe but wouldn't classify as BIG. Short date with TM 790TI (titanium).. Worst irons I've ever owned. And I've probably had 35 sets of irons in my life. Club Champion gave me the 30 day playability return. So had to get $2600.00 dollars worth. Demo'ed the Epon 706's. They are BIG ever
  3. Thanks Theebdk for your 2 round feed back on your 706's.. I also just went transition wedge (TW) through 6 iron. Which was good decision because I've carried the 6-I 185 a few times. Never have I had that kind of 6I distance. So the 6 gaps right up to my 4 hybrid which I can carry 195 to 205+. With the TW I changed the bottom of the bag wedges from 58* & 52* to 56* & 50*... working out just fine... I went with the NEW FH forged V1 Fourteen wedges.. The soul grind is perfect if I want to lay it open to a 58* +...... If you haven't tried the 14's you might consider????
  4. Cont -- height is beyond impressive.. The wide sole is playing just fine but my home course is not dry nor hard pan. The Epon 706 delivers on the GAME enhancement category.
  5. Finally Club Champion built my Epon 706's. I also have the Fujikura Pro shaft. Have about 7-8 rounds with them now. Keep getting better and better. They definaltely deliver on increased length and height. I was hitting my Titleist T200 8 iron 150 when purred. Epon 8 iron is at least 160 and has streached out to 165. Never in recent years have I had that kind of distance and the height is b
  6. i had the XXIO black for a short period of time.. Cant really say as to WHY but I found it to be a HOOK machine.. Sold it...
  7. Hard packed turf and packed sand is not conducive to high bounce wedges for higher handicap players. Hard conditions one needs to be able to consistently put the iron head on the ball first. Not saying a Titleist K grind wedge can't have good results with a clean strike. On another note re wedge lofts. With irons being stronger lofts I have had to adjust my wedge lofts. My new Epon 706 irons are STRONG lofted. PW 40*, Gap 45*...... SO my bottom two wedges have gone from 52* & 58* TO 50* & 56*.. These two wedges are the new FourteeN FH forged V1s.. Idue to th
  8. I had a iron fitting with CC in December. Was looking for more club head speed and height.. Thought the Taylor-made 790 titanium would be the ticket. Certainly the titanium head gave the smash factor and ball speed I have never had before. However, the height and trajectory wasn't any better than my current irons. Fitter said they were strong lofted and once bent weaker, lofts 3 degrees weaker, the height would be what I needed. Chicago tried bending lofts and with just one (1) degree the hosels broke. Titanium too brittle. The TM 790TI was a sale bust for TM. No sales on TGW, no sales o
  9. I looked and demoed The Miura 301's when at Club Champs. Was looking for a little more game enhancement, larger foot print, ball speed and smash factor. The Epons 706 gave all of that and dont look BIG CHUNKEY at address. Yes the sole is a little J Lo but I don't play dirt tracks. Yes they don't feel / sound Epon forged but they are. They have a WACK sound so that's probably interferes with a forged feel. Still wafting but got message from CC that they are being built.
  10. Jubess, thanks for the update.. Mine haven't arrived yet. I'll update after a few rounds..
  11. I have a set on order from Club Champion. The lofts are really STRONG.. Did you order yours STANDARD lofts?? What was your round(s) like with them?? They had a distinctive 'whack" sound at the indoor fitting bay. I would think that would be a little muted outdoors??? How was turf interaction, distances spin and trajectory ??? What iron set did they replace??? TXS EBE
  12. Thanks for the replies and comments. I've ordered the 706's. I'll update after a few rounds
  13. Just got the NEW Fourteens, FH Forged V1 wedges, 54* & 58*. I have played the Fourteen RM 22's for several years even tho I would venture out and do stints with other wedges. Last being Titleist SM8's. Just sold the SM8s. I have also played the Titleist TVD K grind which I still consider a great wedge. Fourteen knocked it out of bounds with the FH forged V1. Forged feel, spin and sole (triple grind). Beyond any expectation I could of imagined.
  14. Yes, these are $300 a stick... Taylormade priced their P790 titanium at about that.. That's a lot of nerve and they are not selling
