  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.
  16. I had a custom ordered set with stock shafts but longer ship from TM thurs, but now FedEx hasn’t shown them move. Figures.
  17. Ebay always sells for less I feel like, otherwise people would just buy them right? I get the new lead time world but I never am happy with what I get on eBay.
  18. That’s right! I’m not one to give things too many chances, but I ended up keeping them or will sell them as the full combo set (5-GW). Still planning on comparing them to a full T200 set… I honestly think the T100S is more blade like than ever, the T200 are more my sweet spot.
  19. The LZ’s are a constant weight shaft so the long irons might feel a bit heavier than the lighter AMT black. The AMT black might have slightly crisper feel to them, I have played LZ 5.5 all year and got good results but they are rather dull feeling. I think flex wise, to me at least, the 5.5 is a good match for a DG stiff. On paper both are a mid/high launch so you should have good results so long as the DG fits your timing and release.
  20. My card just got charged, when do they usually ship after that? All stock components I was told and in production as of today.
  21. Had a good range session with my combo set, and really enjoyed the T100S mid irons. The modus 120 takes some getting used to coming from LZ, but it’s so smooth and you just need to swing. I was able to really hit different shots with the T100S and still found them sorta forgiving. This is a much warmer review than my initial impressions, the new T200 in my long irons do feel soft so it’s nice set when blended.
  22. I received my combo set with modus 120 and am not in love with the T100S, but it’s likely because I’ve been playing T200 all season. The new T200 are a major improvement in my book over the last gen, I’m not sold on shaft but results seems mostly OK. Couldn’t wait for my LZ 5.5 and fitting showed better numbers than stock LZ 6.0 with modus. I have ordered the balance of my combo set in T200 now, should be here in sept and looking forward to comparing to P790. I will say either the shaft or new head makes the new T200 slightly longer, and feel is vastly improved but could be the modus feel over LZ.
  23. I was hitting balls at the range today and I hit one of buddy’s ‘19 P790. He had the stock 105 shaft but in X flex, and even though I am a stiff these felt amazing. I forgot how good these looked and how good they felt, I went home and ordered a set immediately. Showing 9/3 ship date for all stock just longer length. I picked a sonar mammon grip as that was the only one I found that wasn’t behind the clubs in leadtome. Here’s hoping they ship 9/3
  24. There is a difference between retail and Circle T, certainly in the feel department. I have never messed with GSS but friends of mine who have say it’s not worth the premium. Prices on CT’s are super high right now, so I would choose carefully before buying. If you know a certain style works for you the matching CT model will just feel different than the retail version. Mallets are identical to retail unless they have a different welded neck or something. if you just want to collect and not play it, than by all means buy whatever suits your eye. I have cycled through about a dozen CT’s and understand both sides of the argument for and against. If you have the income and want one enjoy it! Cameron collector is a great resource for these sticks or feel free to PM me with any more questions. This site is very polarized on the subject.
  25. Much smaller, the new T100 and T100S are basically a blade profile. Much different then even the AP2, so much thinner than the TMB.
