  1. Looking at the current availability list..PX 6.5 are out of stock until 27th September but T100S heads are now out of stock until 3rd of Jan in the UK. All depends if your heads have been reserved until the shafts come in..if not they will end up getting the shafts in but not having the heads anymore!!
  2. I’m looking to transition from my Nike Engage wedges but going 1 at a time…starting with the 52’ Im not sure which way to go in terms of bounce. My home course is a strange mix…9 of the holes are firm ground and almost links style fairways, the second 9 is parkland with softer turf The Nike 52’ has 11’ of bounce whereas the MG3 are 9 or 12….my wedge game is strong and the Nikes are the first wedge that I’ve almost never chunked! Nowhere has the high bounce MG3 to try but I’m slightly wary of dropping bounce Any thoughts…is 2’ on a 52 wedge gonna be noticeable? Will the 9’ dig easier?
  3. Anyone who has these…how quick are the faces rusting??
  4. Reg and Stiff Tensei Red are out of stock until 26th September in the UK Thats the current status for new orders
  5. In the UK, RH T100 heads (std lie) are now out of stock until 19th December If you want 2’ Upright they are available now I’m hoping my T100 order made it into the current batch as I don’t fancy waiting until Jan for them!!
  6. Why are Vokey’s so popular on tour with both free agents and even in the bags of other OEM Staff Players? You hardly see TM or Callaway in a non-staffers bag. Im looking to replace my Nike Engage’s and haven’t played Vokey since the SM6 days…I’ve been tempted by the MG3 but not sure I like the raw faces
  7. I ordered T100 as the issue for me was the big gap it left with a 44’ PW Id have had to go 5-AW in T100s which defeats the point I don’t want to change my 52/56/60 wedge setup and T100s would have forced me to do so T100 gave me the exact yardages I was looking for but with greater consistency over my P7MC
  8. Is there any way to stop the faces rusting too much? I think the Satin Chrome will be more durable than the black but don’t like the way the MG2 faces went really dark against the chrome head Years ago you would coat Scotty’s with oil to prevent rust…could you do the same here or will it affect spin? Alternatively a monthly soak in Coke or Vinegar??
  9. Just back from a session hitting T100, i210 and i59 Was expecting to love the T100 but fancied a bargain set of i210….anyway, I didn’t like the i210 which surprised me, the i59 was nice but went very very high (but amazing forgiveness levels)….if they hadn’t been so expensive they would probably have been purchased. Anyway….T100 with AMT White 4-PW have been ordered….I don’t know why I ever left titleist irons with DG shafts….they just work for me. I was very impressed with the T100, I retained the distance that I got on good shots with my P7MC (170 carry with 7 iron) but the T100 retained ball speed far better on off-centre hits and low on the face which is where I’ve been struggling. Just hoping there’s not too much of a wait now!!
  10. I hit the i59 tonight during a fitting. It looks nice, not amazing as there’s something weird about the heel/hosel transition. I hit it with the stock LS shaft and feel was certainly on the clickier side but I’d describe it as firm and powerful in the feel dept Forgiveness is off the scale….it just wanted to go high and straight…only problem was it was too high for me…almost moonballs Distance wise I actually hit the new T100 slightly further and with a better flight for what I was looking for For me and many people the biggest sticking point will be the price….it’s just a few hundred pounds too expensive especially when i210 can be had for a steal right now If Ping had launched at a price closer to T100/Apex/P770 then they would sell so so many of these!!!
  11. Did you try the normal T100 as well as the T100S? I’m thinking of making the same move (P7MC to T100) The extra forgiveness will be welcome!!
  12. I've got them with C-Tapers and something just doesn't feel right...I'm getting a bit older and the C-Tapers just require more effort to swing and the longer irons are a bit low spin...I've always played S300 in either DG or AMT and for some reason they just seem to fit my swing I LOVE the head shape of the MC, I'm tempted to resift with normal MBS 120 but not sure if it's worth the hassle If the pings are more forgiving in the longer irons then it may be a winner
  13. I’ve been wondering the same about the iBlade but wasn’t sure about the forgiveness Ive fallen out with my P7MC and was all ready to go for the new T100 if I can find a stock set this week (I played my best ever golf with AP2) However I can get a brand new set of iBlade in DGS300 for just over 1/2 the price of the T100 I was concerned that the iBlade would not be any more forgiving than my P7MC but the offset on i210 bugs me
  14. I play a TM Sim2 Ti 5 Wood lofted down slightly so it plays at around 18'...I probably would have gone 16.5 HL if they had offered the head at retail. It's primarily a tee club as my course has at least 4 holes where driver can be too much club (bunkers or narrowing of the fairway) so I needed something I could hit around 240yds consistently. I originally had it playing +1/2 inch but have since gone back to standard length and it's great. Modern 3 woods just go too far now and I don't miss having a 3 wood at all
  15. What’s the reason behind all of the hate for the S200 shaft?? Go buy an off the rack (which will suit 99% of golfers) Vokey, Callaway or MG3 wedge and it will have an S200 shaft If it was junk then it wouldn’t be in all of these wedges especially Vokeys!! Or is it the fact that it isn’t a XXX-Stiff 140g custom ordered piece of rebar that gets peoples panties in a twist??
