  1. On Staff with 2 manufacturers not named Srixon, and I still play the Z785 irons from 2 years ago. Haven't found a club better including the ZX7.
  2. We fit irons with 6 iron only. AFTER the customer has chosen the set he want's, we go thru the set and track all distances and dispersion. Customer then plays their desired number of rounds, lists misses and wrong distances and we make corrections. Customers are strongly encouraged to go through this process. Some do and some go with the initial fitting and run- I wanted to add, we happily loft and lie new sets to check factory spec BEFORE customer leaves our shop. Worldwide golf-
  3. curious as to why the shaft is your only option to cure the high draw miss. Grip, loft and lie are also ways to take care of that-
  4. 1. St Augustine, Florida 2. 4.2 3. Taylormade M2 4. I need more forgiveness, more ball speed and more accuracy from my hybrid. As well, my current hybrid tends to ballon so I need a more penetrating ball flight 5. Absolutely
  5. IMO the OG M2 head is the best driver TM has ever built
  6. Completed a full fitting on a 5'7" man this week, both irons and woods. He ended up minus 1" on the driver, and minus 1/2" on the irons and 1.5 degrees flat. His following 3 rounds on the course proved these specs to be spot on. TIFWIW-
  7. Never understood the logic of testing wedges. Retailer MUST put tape on it otherwise it becomes a used club at a new club price. Edwin Watts for example has a 90 day guarantee. So, go ahead and buy the wedge without hitting it, just do it. If in 4 or 5 rounds you don't like it, take it back for a new one.
  8. No I don't need it, but I couldn't pass up the basically brand new Ping G400 max/tour shaft sitting in the used section at Edwin Watts yesterday for $130 lol
  9. Spoke with my wallet this weekend, went and purchased a dozen. Have YET to have a wear or cut issue in probably 20 rounds.
  10. 18 holes of golf, see pictures. Now that I think about it, might have been 27 holes. Other than a major scuff from a cart path, the ball is in great shape. I am not a Titleist guy, currently playing TP5x and the Bridge B ball, but this ball plays and wears great.
  11. JimmyD- would love to see a picture of this. I have played 4-5 rounds with this ball and experienced absolutely no cover issues, none!
  12. 18 holes with the same ball. Absolutely no durability issues, no cover issues at all. I would post pictures but you would all deny that the ball has actually been played. I will throw in that I always clean my clubs and never hit a ball with sand/dirt still on the face.
  13. Michaele- no roasting from me, you are certainly entitled to your opinion. I do take exception to some of your comments though. First, throw a 20+ handicap into this trial and what "specific shot" feedback is he going to be able to give you? A 20+ isn't a consistent enough ball striker to be able to give specific feedback on ball performance. Kind of confirmed with your comments regarding Apex irons. Having single digit handicaps review the ball translates directly to the 10+ handicaps game. Secondly, where did you see that the ball is designed for swing speeds under 90? Lastly, Forester_fire and Seth514 are both 10+ handicaps and gave pretty thorough reviews. I think Knudson came up with a great mix of talents, ages etc to test these.
  14. 4 different shots into greens. Gap wedge, 9 iron into the wind, 7 iron 190 yard down wind and a 8 iron with a little hurting wind
  15. I didn't find the cover durability to be an issue. I played the same ball for 17 holes and unfortunately I hit the ball I used all day in the lake on 18 and had to play a new ball. So, no pictures of that used all day ball. To that point I really didn't see any cover issues other than one of my errant drives that bounced off of a cart path and got scarred up
  16. Okay, not my "official" report but DAMN what a fine golf ball. I don't find it any longer than any other ball I have been playing, but I really enjoyed my round yesterday. Hit 15 greens on the way to shooting a smooth 66 with this ball in winds gusting to 25mph. Ball is easy to flight, easy to control, has just the right amount of spin both on full shots and pitch shots. It doesn't make that click sound like your typical mid range ball makes. As a matter of fact, I would say it feels softer off the face than it does hard, atypical for a "distance" ball. I will post some pictures later today. Suffice to say that I liked it.
  17. Thank you to golfWRX and Titleist for the opportunity to test, I received the balls on Monday. I haven't had the opportunity to play a round yet but will post a thorough report when I do. I suspect next week. As far as me and my game, 56 years old, Florida golfer, and I am currently playing to a 3.2, swing speed max with a driver is 108. Majority of 2020 I have been playing the new Bridgestone B tour ball and the Taylormade TP5X, but I am always looking for a ball that costs less and performs nearly as well. In the last year I have tried every ball on the market (seriously) and played 10+ rounds with a Callaway Warbird recently. Really liked that ball actually. If you guys have a certain certain ball you would like me to compare this Titleist to, please reply and let me know. I will play a round with the ball you want as well as the Tour Speed and post a report. Patrick
  18. Replaced my Honma forged with T20's in 50, 54 and 58. So far the love is strong with the 54 and 50 but there is a learning curve with the 58. Just a little too much bounce for my game and the firm fairways we play in Florida.
  19. In a post below, answer the following questions. Jacksonville Florida 4.3 Taylormade Tour Response Always looking to improve Precision no absolutely
  20. To be clear, the sales people at golf stores are hourly plus commission, a very small commission. They have to pay their bills off of that job. If you intend to get numbers off of monitors then shop elsewhere, that sucks. The brick and mortar stores have all the overhead to pay for, the labor, the inventory, rent, GC quad etc. Spend the money locally, form relationships with them. The service will be hugely better than it would be buying online.
  21. What are your ultimate intentions? IF you just want to hit some clubs and they know you are not in the market, then no big deal. But, if you intend to use the facilities then go purchase online, BAD FORM

    Srixon Z785 Irons

    I work in a golf shop, national chain, and can play any iron I want, and I play the Z785. Not to dismiss the Mizuno, they make a fine product, it's just the Z785 feels more solid to me, less mushy. What most people describe as soft with the Mizuno's I describe as mushy. IMO there is a fine line at which point you lose feel
