  1. OK I am finally ready to pull the trigger, looking for 4-PW but could settle with 6-PW, have to be in good condition, ideally red dots. Would consider head only, let me know what you have!
  2. Forgive me if this question has already been asked in addressed in previous forums, but I cant seem to find it. I recently got fit for the Ping Blueprint at Modern Golf (to my surprise) and WOW the look, feel and performance was unreal. That said, I only hit and compared the 6 iron (with multiple shafts) against most of the current blades (620MB, ApexMB) , cavity backs (620CB, ZX7, ApexCB) and players improvement irons (T100, Apex Pro) on the market but the Ping i59 wasn't in the fitting drawer yet. I have held the i59 7 iron and it looks very similar at address than the Blueprint (minus the added groves) however I haven't seen or read many direct comparisons regarding the performance (launch, spin, feel, turf interaction and forgiveness) between the two. I have no issue sticking with the Blueprint 6-PW but I have heard and would agree that the 4-5 irons can look a little "knify" which had me wondering if the i59 would / should match the performance profile of the Blueprints in the longer irons. Yes, I know that they would be technically more forgiving and less "knify" looking, I am more interested in the performance aspect in regards to making a combo set. On another thought, would or could I assume that the i59 could perform very similar than the Blueprint through the bag (4-PW)? Curious to know your experience between the two...WRX lets hear it!
  3. Idea shelfed for now

  5. Neither did I, I asked the same question to Ping...hope you straighten out your issue!
  6. The adapter weighs 3ish grams, the head weight specs on the ping site include the adapter weight. So based on that I would think your Max head weight is standard
  7. I love that set up...with the Ventus Red too...very cool
  8. What were you spinning the SIM prior to switching to the LST? And I assume you added 10g of hotmelt and reduced the weight in the back? Otherwise it would one heavy mofo!
  9. Exactly the comments that peaked my interest! Similar spin but you chose the LST, I also need to hit more fairways, I've heard the opposite opinion a bunch about the max being super straight...which leads me to believe the LST performs best for higher speed players, hence mostly every tour player swapping to the LST this year. Think the LST is likely the direction I will take!
