  1. I've noticed the similarity in a number of DTC models. Basically, the cast hollow (or foam filled) iron, such as the Sub 70 699, the Haywood Signature irons, the Takomo 101, the New Level MODB-1. There are probably others. My guess (purely a guess) is they all come from the same factory with minor variations requested by the DTC company. That doesn't mean they aren't quality products. In fact, the feedback on them has been almost uniformly good.
  2. 1. Jackson, Ms. 2. Handicap: 9.8 3. Have you tried other training aids before? Yes, the Tour Striker 4. What do you look for in a training aid and why would you like to try this product? My ball striking is terrible, awful, an insult to humanity. If a training aid could make me a good ball striker, it would be a miracle. Maybe the Lag Shot could do that. 5. Are you willing to watch (and follow) the training videos? Yes 6. Do you agree to participate in an ongoing testing thread, posting reviews and photos? Yes
  3. IIRC, Charl Schwartzel once gamed a set that he had drilled holes into the back of to get the swing weight he wanted.
  4. This is a bad time to buy golf clubs and cars. Maybe in 2 or 3 years the supply issues will be gone and we ho's can go back to ho'ing.
  5. I’m a mid capper and have no problem with a 58 degree wedge. I’ve played one for years.
  6. The Mizuno rep was at my local shop last week and he said the new line would be in stores in February. BTW, I thought all the new models looked great.
  7. That will work if you shorten them by the correct amount. In other words, shortening the clubs by 1/2 inch might be perfect. Shortening them by 1 inch might make them play too flat. Or, shortening them by 1 inch might be perfect. And so on...
  8. Janzen said he could only hit high draws with the H40 irons. I hope they paid him a lot of money to play them. I love a high draw, but I'm a short hitting 9 handicapper. I think Westwood sums up the feelings of most tour players in that commercial: I hate the high draw.
  9. The feel and sound were surprisingly good. Better than the previous gen T200 and very close to the T100's.
  10. I hit the Titleist T200's recently and they didn't look like they had an offensive amount of offset. They launched high and were forgiving without being shovels. Give 'em a look.
  11. The G irons have the hosel notch, which makes them much easier to bend than older Pings. A local golf shop should be able to do it easily.
  12. Does anyone know if the Founders Club bag will accommodate over length irons? Mine are plus 1 inch and the reviews on Amazon disagree on the question.
  13. You are right in saying what matters is the sole is parallel to the ground at impact. You change the lie angle to achieve that result. So, for example, bending a club upright will only result in the face pointing left at impact if the resulting lie places the toe higher than the heel at impact. Upright and flat only influence the ball flight in relation to a "neutral" lie angle. That neutral lie angle may be 3 degrees upright for one player and 3 degrees flat for another player.
  14. I like responses that answer the question posed by the OP. If you can’t stand iron covers or love the look of well worn clubs, why not start a thread called iron covers suck? That way you can rail against them all you like without wasting the OP’s time. To the original question, I use iron covers but would love to hear feedback on that Founders Club bag.
  15. I think Sergio Garcia has always gripped down on his clubs.
