  1. Right. My Apex combo set’s PW loft is what my old 9 iron was, so I have the A wedge a gap wedge, sand wedge and 60 degree. It’s irrelevant what’s stamped on the club, so I don’t really think I’m carrying 4 wedges, despite what’s stamped on it.
  2. Isn’t interesting that with a lower compression ball, I will hit my driver shorter, but my short iron longer.
  3. I got a distance boost over my previous driver, the g30. I probably gained 5-10 yards on a solid hit. But the best feature is the forgiveness for sure. I don’t miss as many fairways or have as many bad misses.
  4. I have a Ping G410 LST. OnSunday I hit one so far off the toe, I blurted out “oh no!” I quickly shut up and stopped complaining when I looked up and saw it sailing 220 and straight. It felt awful when I hit it, and it had no business turning out so well- that’s pretty good for a toe hit. Quote
  5. I actually contemplated removing my 4 iron or 3 wood and carrying 2 putters- a blade for lag putting and the mallet for maids 10 feet... then I just spent a lot of time practicing lag putts with the mallet and what to you know, I got pretty good at it. Go figure- practicing makes a difference.
  6. I’m leaning toward a set of i210’s. They may offer the playability and just enough forgiveness for me. I hit a high ball naturally and the TP’s have a weight right behind the sweet spot which makes me hit the ball even higher. I was wondering if you thought the 210’s trajectory was high?
  7. I think what got me thinking most about switching to a mallet was seeing how many more Tour players now use mallets: https://www.golfwrx.com/524842/blade-vs-mallet-putters-what-the-top-50-players-are-using-owgr-and-sg-putting/
  8. I play the Ping 410 LST for it’s incredible forgiveness. On Sunday I hit one so far off the toe, I blurted out “oh no!” I quickly shut up and stopped complaining when I looked up and saw it sailing 220 and straight. It felt awful when I hit it, and it had no business turning out so well- that’s forgiveness.
  9. So should we see deals on the 19 Combo sets soon???
  10. That might be ideal- but it could bankrupt me... or I could do as Johnny Cash did and take “One Piece at a Time” after getting a job at Ping.
  11. I’ve played the TM TP’s for over 6 seasons and I’m looking to get new irons. I’m thinking of Ping I210 or even the I Blades as a combo set. I like the combo set idea as I’ve already replaced my 4 iron with a Ping G 400 Crossover. I was thinking of picking up a i500 5 iron to go with the Crossover and then play the i210 from 6-PW. Thoughts?
  12. Funny that you said that about Ping drivers- I play the 410 LST for it’s incredible forgiveness. On Sunday I hit one so far off the toe, I blurted out “oh no!” I quickly shut up and stopped complaining when I looked up and saw it sailing 220 and straight. It felt awful when I hit, and it had no business turning out so well- got to love Ping.
  13. That’s what I’m hoping for- a heavier feeling head that doesn’t have added weight. I figure I’ll cut down the steel shaft and stick the graphite into the steel and epoxy it. Just not sure how the transition will looks I may test it out on some old shafts first.
