  1. I picked one up for my driver and 3 wood. Only got 8 holes in and could only hit each one twice. Initial impressions are the usual GD feel, snappy but not loose. I really liked the TP and this feels kinda similar but more active. Never got along with DI or IZ, but my swing has come a long way since playing those. Will have to play a bit more to see if it kicks out my Ventus black and red.
  2. I literally passed on $800 button backs on eBay 2 years ago, kicking myself now. Every time a flipper sells a putter on their site the next one gets listed at $500 more… In most CT cases they are used too. I literally took a loss on a couple that I sold last year. Sad, if I had only waited this market would have buoyed the prices. Now I just don’t buy, only safe way.
  3. I have been playing Ventus red in my fairways and black in driver. Swing with driver is about 100. I had really good results, am testing the AD HD now in driver and 3 wood, but haven’t quit on Ventus yet. Driving was just so bad I had to change something. The honeymoon with Ventus was unreal, I play stiff in all my models and I think the quality can definitely help an average swinger.
  4. Just hit the portion of my new T200 order that came in, and they seem way better than the original version. I find them softer, and with less offset they tick all the boxes looks wise. I changed shafts, so that might contribute to them being longer than my first gen.
  5. That’s kinda what I’m wrestling with. Got a stadry 4 this year, and it suits me just fine after getting used to the slightly smaller size than 4+. I like these linksmaster bags and my club has a couple, but worried it’s just a looks thing and not as functional. You guys are starting to turn me around, the 3 dividers is my biggest hang up as the 4 I have suit me perfectly. The class is looks are catching my eye, and I am seeing more and more of these or stitch bags around and has me curious.
  6. I just did a fitting and tried the PX IO for the first time, and really liked it. I have been gaming LZ 5.5 and find it great in short irons, but can be a bit demanding for me on long irons or uncomfortable lies. Went IO 6.0 and think the extra kick might be just the ticket for me, as during the fitting I was getting very consistent shots no matter what swing. Here's hoping, as I was showing a gain of about 8-10 yds with the new combo, from the LZ 5.5 setup I have now.
  7. Is it pretty much the same space wise as a stadry, or is smaller? I keep getting attracted to it by the looks but want to make sure it’s easy to walk with since that’s what do most of the time. Seems as waterproof I’m told, which once I upgraded to that I can’t go back.
  8. What’s everyone take on these, have a stadry players 4 currently and biggest difference is the divided layout. Seems to be the same pockets mainly just only 3 dividers on linksmaster vs 4 on my stadry. Are these linksmasters more than just good looking, or do they carry well throughout a round?
  9. I found the wedge and gap wedge of my OG T200 pretty useful too. I am looking forward to my new set eventually arriving. I think properly fit these are great irons as the looks are improved over the set I have. Went with a different shaft so I am hoping that isnt a mistake, but fitting showed good numbers.
  10. I kept my FJ Flints and once they broke in I could tighten laces and really like them. Still like gallivanters but these are strongly in rotation.
  11. I played the one round with my set before moving them, and the distance was very consisent. My biggest issue was the shorter irons didnt fly enought for me. It's likely a shaft issue, but the fitting is only with a 7 iron so I had no way of knowing. I didn't get on the sim to confirm, but the range session before my round I noticed these flew really high and possibly spun too much based on the apex. I actually found the feel to be more like the P770 and not my favorite, but good shots with 7 or 5 iron i was very impressed with. the wedge and gap wedge just didnt fly for me at all, and I would rather stick with my OG T200 at this point since I know the short irons work. I found this set to be very forgiving on mid and long irons, but the short irons were wonky. Kinda opposite of what I experienced with my current set where short irons are awesome, but long irons can be demanding. Looking to try a set of Mizzy Hot Metal Pro as numbers on sim were excellent, and the IO shaft is free.
  12. Played a round with mine today, and had mixed results. The feel is improved on old version and the launch does seem higher. I will likely move on from my set, as what I had works as well for me and I am comfortable with it. The nee P790’s are solid though, it’s the WRX’er in me.
  13. My set arrived this morning, so taking them out tomorrow. Played the previous gen a while agk, so I kinda know what to expect. Kinda looking to test these against 921 Hot Metal Pro… based on comparing to the demo 7 iron the soles on P790 are slightly thinner and they are a little slicker looking. Will be curious to hit 7 iron again 7 iron tomorrow, both with DG105 shafts. The HMP’s are legit but I snagged a custom order P790 set with the stock shaft in 3 days from order… lucky DG105 works for me.
  14. Can’t comment on straight hot metal, but I believe they are the same construction as the Hot Metal Pros. I had a fitting and took the demo 7 HMP to my range, and am in love with them mainly due to feel. Very soft feeling, but still fast. Not mushy at all, and the ball just jumps off the face. I have never found an iron that looks like the HMP and play so easy. Barely bigger than original T200 and less offset, coming from Titleist I like the rounded shape. Somewhat hard to pinpoint wear slight misses occur exactly, but you know when you catch it pure. Some of the the best feeling irons out there right now, no harshness or clank unless you really mis hit it.
  15. I paid for next day too, got the shipped email and FedEx status still just says picked up since yesterday. Is what it is, was hoping to see it in Memphis at least.
