  1. @PublicEnemy Just went through this in my latest lesson. I was doing this as a way to ensure weight transfer to lead leg. But, for me, the trail heel lift was a sign that I wasn't "squatting" in the shot. Result: Thin shots from not staying down through impact. Impact and consistency is greatly improved when I roll into the arch of the trail foot, rather than let the heel up.
  2. One shaft alternative ($$) might be to work with something like a True Temper AMT where the shaft weights decrease as lengths increase. A set of AMT shafts will include "subsets" where the long iron subset of shafts will have a slightly lower kickpoint to promote a higher trajectory. At the other end, the short-iron/wedge shaft subset will have a higher kickpoint to produce a lower flight in the wedges. If you think you might want to vary lengths within subsets, a shaft set like the AMT might benefit you from both length and weight perspectives. Adding: I always say that somed
  3. I see it for sale at this link: https://rebelliongolf.com/videos/
  4. @Popeye64 I know you're a fitter/builder that regularly works with Maltby components. @BigTerp1524, the OP, is 6'8". Given his specs, do you have any thoughts on how the OP should approach ordering irons from Maltby? Should he just get fit and buy a full set built by Maltby? Order a test club first?
  5. @TLUBulldogGolf You might need a little more depth getting to Monte’s checkpoint at P3. But depth after that looks really good. Issues with low point control in this model are likely going to be linked to the one lower body move. But, that swing, tho. So good. Nice job!
  6. I know Nippon is known for quality shafts. I was fit into this shaft and flex, but I normally take a regular flex in steel. If I was fit into these, maybe the 105 a little tip-soft? If it's same throughout the bag, are the tips bending? Maybe you practice a lot off hardpan or mats?
  7. @Nessism nailed it. The DBM finish limits ability to bend lie angles, which you're probably going to need. The DBM irons are the TE Forged model with DBM coating. If I were you, I would WANT a local fitter to customize them for you. I think you may have problems getting Maltby to bend more than 2* although don't be bashful about asking them! (Telling them about your height might help.) I love new clubs. But, one piece of equipment you might want to consider before clubs is a Fiberbuilt impact mat for indoor practice. The Fiberbuilt will allow you to keep a "natur
  8. @BigTerp1524 From another thread, I know you're going through a swing change. Between that and your height, I would steer clear of the DBM and any Maltby wedges with a DBM finish. Seeing your video on the other thread, I am surprised by the mention of the FST 90. If that's a good weight for you, you may wish to consider graphite, maybe the Maltby MPF Pro Graphite. In stiff, they run 86g. I've tried the driver in regular flex and it plays stiffer than some stiff shafts I've swung, and comments suggest the iron shafts play stiff to flex as well. It's not a custom option on thei
  9. Played Greywalls once and was blown away. Great course.
  10. 1. Do not gloss over the first instructional video on the backswing and the related drill. Pay attention to the WRIST positions. 2. Pay attention to the segues between the videos that show overhead views of Monte's swing. I think he is demonstrating the subject of the upcoming video. These show a lot of hand, wrist and arm positions, movements and directions you can't glean from the FO and DTL. 3. After viewing the first time or two, try to "boil it all down" to a few fundamentals. For me, it's really a simple framework with just five or six basic fundamentals. V
  11. The "pro" intends nothing, at least on this move. Their perception of the swing is largely correct and they've had this ingrained for decades. I think one answer to your question could be found by watching a somewhat "hidden" part of NTC. Check out the OVERHEAD view of Monte's full swings that are the segues between video segments. It's Monte's swing comparative to the NTC "clock." The overhead is a unique view, and helps us "see" how Monte does it. Another hidden gem of NTC that helps our impact our perception of the swing in a positive way. In fact, @MonteSchein
  12. Timberstone in Iron Mountain, MI. Back when Golf Digest published "Places to Play" Timberstone achieved the rarified air of the list of 5-star courses which included the usual list of Pebble, Bethpage Black, Pinehurst #2, Blackwolf Run River, Whistling Straits, etc.
  13. Adding: I see you are indoors like a lot of us. I know you are trying to clean up the takeaway, but a lot of good golfers develop bad habits playing indoors. Whatever you do, I don't want you to lose sight of your most obvious and valuable asset: The ability to generate high hands and high clubhead with a full swing. Keep at the practice, but make sure you don't start doing stupid stuff like tucking your trail arm tight against your body or other compensating moves made out of fear of hitting the ceiling or a side wall.
  14. Kudos! What a great move and look. As Monte would say "Just keep doing that." (Joke Monte tells about overhearing the "coaching" a name coach was giving one of his players.)
  15. @BigTerp1524 Take video of your current swing. Work on this a few days, then video the new swing. People who were doing Cast A in the wrong direction will see immediate improvement that just needs ingraining on the course.
