  2. i have it on good authority that ping hired the same team that covered up the jfk assassination, 9/11 and the frozen envelope in the 1985 nba draft to cover up why they won't make a true blade as well as produce the bulk of their marketing materials. ![](https://i.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/newsfeed/000/284/161/856.jpg "")

There are different clubs for different purposes, and generally speaking, the vast majority of HC players at any level are hurting their games by keeping long irons (2,3,4...and even 5) in play instead of hybrids. I played in a regional event over the weekend (Fri,Sat,Sun) in the "senior" division (50-60). Lots of good players, most of whom played collegiately and are ar

Almost never the other way around. When I bought my G25's the fitting guy at the store saw me swinging (I was a 7 capper at the time) and asked why I wanted G's instead of i's? I told him I want the forgiveness because my miss is out on the toe and mitigating that is more valuable to my game than the workability of smalle
  5. Ping iN 1/2 whack-e. Just grabbed it on a whim, never played a center shafted putter before and it's been a real weapon.
  6. Also, I don't need blades to work the ball. Why use blades and make it easy? I like to know when I don't put the intended swing on the ball by it going STRAIGHT! I gots to have that *feedback*? I have to concentrate *more * with GI clubs to hit my baby draw and butter cut! That way I know I'm getting sloppy if it goes straight!!! Now, doesn't that sound f**king stupid?

You’ve got guys in here telling you the truth who have designed some of the irons you’re playing and yet the obligatory “ you don’t need to hit anything but a straight shot” and “ only on Wrx do we have guys playing blades shooting 106 and holding up the course”. With a call to the USga with the “ real” slow play issue. GEt our of here with that noise. If you’re hitting 3 wood from 150 out. You aren’t the topic of this thread.

  8. > @chiva said: > The problem with mid handicappers not being able to work the ball with game improvement irons is simply that mid handicappers generally speaking are not "good" golfers. It's no surprise that they are not able to work the ball. Their skill level is significantly lacking. Is this a surprise? The thing that would benefit the mid handicapper the most is just to try to hit the green period. if they could "work" the ball on demand, they wouldn't be mid cappers, am i right?

  11. Try as I might, I always go back to the Callaway x2hot pro 20 and 23. I have the steel kbs hybrid shafts in them and cut to the length of the irons they replaced.

  13. i know its very un-golfwrx but i'm playing the titleist dt trusoft this year. have to get adjusted to the short game but really like not sucking irons off the greens.
  14. Get rid of the baby and get some Baby Blades.
  15. take your tool and swap out the head for a new one. then go over to the bag section, find a nice looking cart bag and drop a deuce in it while no one is looking. frontier justice!
  16. Pretty much impossible according to the GolfWRX GI truthers. That's why all the 15 handicap "great ballstrikers" here gots to play the blades.
  17. GolfWrx answer: Yeah, I'm sure that's the case for *most* golfers but *I* am a 15 cause I can't chip and putt! But do I think my street cred would be somewhat diminished if I were to rock a Ping Chippo, Alien wedge and a stand up putter with my Miura Baby Blades (btw - they are bent weak 0.0523599 radians to reduce offset in the long irons)? Absolutely. YMMV. Real world answer: Yes - agree w/ OP 100%
  18. I don't know about you guys but at my club we don't break ties using hole handicap. Instead we give it to the guy who's pitching wedge has more loft. 2nd tie breaker is who has less offset in their 2 iron. 3rd is who's lob wedge has less bounce. 4th tie breaker is who's driver face angle is more open. It's never happened yet but the 5th tie breaker is when we measure d**ks. As always - YMMV.
  19. You may need blades. From what I hear on GolfWRX you only get fliers when you don't play blades. You may also be losing concentration during your swing as well. Hope that helps! YMMV.
  20. I think it's easier for one to "want" blades to prove to be better than it is to "want" GI to prove to be better. Probably an ego thing but I'm no psychiatrist.
