  1. I love my 4h, but it goes waaay further than a 4i, so I recently added a 4i to my bag to help fill that gap between my 4h and 5i. And as others have noted, some experience the hooks with hybrids, but I think hybrids give you more versatility and ease to hit out of many lies. It might be worth going 4h and 5h depending on gapping, if you've got room in your bag or need it, but I know that creates issues. I know for me, I don't want to drop any of my wedges since I don't need longer clubs as often.
  2. I use my 58* a majority of the time, but definitely find value in carrying my other wedges for around the greens. I've started to really learn how to use the bounce with all of my wedges, creating additional trajectories, so I can have several different shots in my bag around the green. For a number of years, I didn't use my other wedges aside from full swing, so you can definitely drop them and still play well. Why not drop them for a few rounds and see what you think...
  3. That's an impressive round with all those bogeys! I have a tee time this afternoon for 9 at the Burb, but the temps are supposed to nose dive later today, so we'll see. I'll likely still play tho. I'm certainly missing the California weather from last week! Had a great week - got to play Torrey South, played twilight at Encinitas Ranch (got 13 holes in) and did a wedge fitting at Titleist. Played Torrey from the tips. Definitely a fun experience but I didn't bring my A-game whatsoever - disappointing since I was so excited to play. I really struggled to fi
  4. 1. What is your nearest Titleist fitting location? Several locations within a few miles of me. Club Champion, Highlands Ranch is probably the closest. 2. City and State? Centennial, CO (Denver metro area) 5. Handicap? 7.4 4. Current Driver Setup? Cobra F8+ 9.5* - Project X EvenFlow 65x 5. Were you fit for your current driver? Yes 6. What TSi head do you want to test? TSi2 7. Do you agree to participate in an ongoing testing thread, posting reviews and photos? Definitely
  5. 1. City and State? Centennial, CO (Denver metro area) 2. Handicap? 7.4 3. Are you able to test equipment on a golf course with one week of its receipt? Definitely, I play at least once a week nearly year round 4. Current Iron setup? Cobra Forged Tec Black w/ AMT x100 soft-step x1 5. What is the top thing you look for when buying new irons? Feel, turf interaction, and consistent/expected performance (ball flight, distance control, shot grouping, etc). I prefer a thinner top line, but apparently got over that with the FTB's cause they perform so well. 6. Do you agree to
  6. I'll echo other posts here with the Cobra suggestion. I have the F8 and it's awesome. The rails are amazing. I have so much confidence with it and is really long for me.
  7. I need to stop reading these threads...off to check BST and e-bay for deals on these. Like I need a 5th set of irons. I should probably sell a set or three
  8. I kind of have a large gap between my 7i and 8i, but it doesn't usually come into play all that often to cause me trouble. I have a bigger gap than I'd like between my 50* and my PW, which forces me to make questionable decisions at times lol. I don't do great on hitting 'soft' iron shots, so the gapping can create issues. If I have a 135-140yd shot, I tend to want to step on a 50* rather than take a smooth, easy PW shot. It doesn't work as much as I'd like it to, so one would think I would learn
  9. What is your handicap: 7.4 Current hybrid or utility iron shaft and flex: UST Recoil SmacWrap 780 ES F5 (x-stiff) Closest Authorized Fujikura Dealer (Search HERE) Club Champion (Highlands Ranch, CO), PGA SS (Greenwood Village, CO) , D'Lance Golf (Englewood, CO), and Weitzel Golf (Highlands Ranch, CO). All within 5 miles of me. What hybrid or utility iron head will you install your shaft in? Cobra King OS Choose your Ventus HB weight/flex: Blue 8x Do you agree to participate in an ongoing testing thread, posting reviews and photos? Definitely
  10. Reviving an older thread.... Can you request to work with Nick? He's not listed on golftecs website as an available instructor. If you can request him, is it a different rate?
  11. @Joelnessused to be a member at Colorado National. IIRC, he said it was only about 20-25 minutes from his place downtown. It's a fun course with nice facilities, and I'm pretty sure Joel liked it before taking time to travel the world. They also have a large indoor practice facility too. Pace of play typically blows on the weekends, but I'm guessing you get priority reservations to get early tee times out there. I haven't seen him on here in awhile, but maybe he'll surprise us all and chime in
  12. On another note, I have this posted in WRX Club Techs, but I'm not getting any traction, so maybe someone here can help Looking to upgrade my driver from the F8+ to the Speedzone. I currently have the Evenflow Blue 65 in x-stiff, and like it quite a bit, but they don't offer it as an option. Normally, I'd just use the current shaft and put it in the new SZ, but my brother-in-law hit my driver really well last time we played, so I was going to give it to him. I don't think any of the HZRDUS offerings will work since they're all low spin, but was thinking maybe the Fujikura ATMOS B
  13. Haven't been playing much golf lately, aside from our drinking filled, bs 9-hole rounds on Thursdays. Finally got out to play 18 at Lone Tree yesterday. I was really interested to see how my game was going to be, particularly since my putting game lately has been trash. I haven't played a full 18 since the 3rd week of August. After starting out even thru 5, I found the road with my approach shot and limped off with a triple. I pulled it back together and par'd 7, but then had some bad luck on two shots on 8, and ended up with a double. Had some missed opportunities throughout the d

Is this a good option, or are there othe
