  1. > @caniac6 said: > TS3 driver. I had a great fitting. All the numbers were fantastic. Hit it long and straight at the Titleist Thursday. Couldn't hit it worth a flip on the course! Gave it about a month, and traded it for a Ping G400 Max. Lots of Titleist Thursday's popping up on here! They must pull the ol' elevation or wind tricks ;)
  2. One turned up toe, raw finish with grooves please!
  3. @balls_deep Most faster guys tend to want to hit the ball lower as their ball speed tends to peak it crazy high. Further, whether it is ego or not, many of them see Rory and Dustin rip driving irons and think they should too. I think the 7w will always have the stigma of being an old man/ladies club in general golf circles. Heck, I remember playing with some older members at a course once 2 years ago with a 5 hybrid (25*) and they were just shaking their heads and laughing at me that they could never hit a club like that. I didn't see the big deal at the time considering I beat them by

  5. Not to be snarky but at my home course it's very blue collar, so the "new equipment" to a lot of these guys is something like SLDR/M1, XR16, and Ping G25/G30. Even the most prolific Club Champion who has won a ton of them in the past 20 years or so still plays an R9 TP and hasn't looked at a driver since. It really goes to show you that most of the time it's the archer not the arrow (says the guy with a full 2019 bag and I'm already planning the 2020 equipment changes.)
  6. > @ChipNRun said: > This wasn't a rash purchase. Back when Nike made golf clubs, the Nike Tour Van was trekking around the Midwest. I got selected for a tour van fitting at my club. > > I was looking to replace my irons, so I scheduled an iron fitting. I showed up with an index card showing the model and shafting of all my golf clubs. The fitters set up their van, and I got a very thorough iron fitting. The fitter took baseline measurements for shots with my 5i and 7i, and then they had me hit shots with the Nike Vapor Speed and Pro Forged heads. Vapor Speed won out, and I sev
  7. > @SubaruWRX said: > I’m surprised nobody has said “lessons from golftec”. I’ve seen them screw up many good swings. You must be me. This place is a joke. $1800 or so for 15 lessons and 3x practice sessions per week. It made sense, it was a 7 minute drive from my house and I previously worked for over a decade at the Golf Town store that the GolfTec was housed in. I could stop in and see some old friends every week and catch up. I haven't hit the ball so bad in years to be honest. The lessons are overly basic and they never actually fix anything that was a glaring problem when
  8. > @Yarra said: > > @HoosierMizuno said: > > here's the problem i see, for fitters to make a decent profit they need to sell the equipment they fit a player into. they often then tie themselves to a particular brand (s). those brands then send them testing equipment for free which the fitters need as the new stuff comes out. the problem then becomes the perception to the player that you may not get an honest fit if you simply want to play whatever fits you best, because the appearance becomes that the fitter is motivated to sell you the brand they are affiliated with. > &g

I just inputed the same info but 175-184 for 6 iron length and it spit out KBS Tour S+. > > Maybe since KBS are a sponsor one of their people will pick this up, looks like it's pretty badly broken, I've got nothing against R shafts but they just wouldn't produce results for me. You never know until you try! Shaft weight is much more important than flex anyways.
  12. Far from the first +2 to consider game improvement clubs. Plenty of these types of clubs on PGA, Champions, and LPGA tours. Trevor Immelman won the Master's with Nike CCI irons, KJ Choi and Y.E. Yang use full bags of G400 product, Dana Quigley famously used a full set of Adams clubs with hybrids to the 7 iron I believe back around 2010 and had a good run on the Champions Tour, Kenny Perry almost won the Masters or U.S. Open (I can't remember which) using R7 irons, and Camillo Villegas used Burner 2.0 irons when he switched from Cobra to Taylormade. Most of these players are a bit better th
  13. In terms of pure looks I am going for the Mizuno 900 or 919 forgings, it looks perfect. I am also a huge fan of the Titleist 660 from ~2005/2006 but they are still really hard to come by and astronomical in price.
  14. > @pholway said: > Went to golfdom and got fitted for some T300s on their trackman. Great service and great clubs. Shafts are going to be Nippon 950GH in Regular Flex, +1.2 inch and 2 degrees upright. 5-GW(48 degrees) pretty strong lofts on these guys but that seems like the norm. I have never hit any irons with any kind of Nippon shaft, man these are really smooth feeling. They are really light which helps a guy like me (74 mph 7 - iron for reference) Also the dispersion was best with these shafts. I did everything not to like them, as I really wanted the PX LZ but the nippons beat all

These irons and their concept arent “new”. Its a hybrid that is made to look like an iron head. Name a pro that plays a full set of hybri
