  1. For short shots, the spin comes from the cover compressing and gripping the club face. The other layers don't get compressed enough to contribute to the spin. Any urethane covered ball should give you lots of spin on your cute greenside wedge shots. A balata cover on a Top Flite core would theoretically spin more than a Pro V 1X around the green but might not be spinny enough on full iron shots.
  2. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eDerdhn-aBc?list=PL7gD9uOXAdy51tFo7pNeOY72Z3r9e-7ad Eddie Merrins describes a proper golf swing as swinging the handle of the club with the forearms.
  3. Believe it or not, the white alignment stripe on my Ketsch is a repulsor beam that strikes ball with just enough energy to propel it to the dead center of the hole.
  4. With due respect to my putt stubbing, sky marking brethren, there's no reason not to go big-headed in clubs that have no turf interaction.
  5. When you've got those in the bag nobody ever asks what kind of irons you're playing.
  6. From what I gather, a small double blind test was done once where the exact same head was cast and forged and nobody could tell which was which. Maybe somebody with a better memory could fill in the details or correct me if I'm wrong about the result.
  7. Spieth's shirt is slightly whiter than Furyk's noggin. All of them do. Wear visors instead. Lol Wait a second. What about Webb Simpson? He's got movie star hair or a great toupee.
  8. The great thing about Cleveland is they don't mess with the head shape. The newer wedges maintain the proportions of the originals. I guess you could say this about other brands but Cleveland does do it well.
  9. I bought TA5 irons shortly after they came out. They felt like they were by far the most solid and forgiving irons I had ever hit. It was the first and only time I had the feeling that I was using a truly superior club. Every iron I've used since then has been as good or not as good.
  10. If the 545 has all the qualities of a GI iron then why is it players GI and not simply GI? Blade length. As I mentioned earlier, *I* had NEVER read about blade length having anything to do with the "category" and iron was placed in. Nevertheless, if you consider the 5s a "player's GI", then the 5s & 7s are "duplicates". Why would Srixon target 2 different irons at essentially the same group of golfers ? The difference between the 5 & 7 is the deep undercut in the cavity and with depth/width of the sole. The 7 has a much narrower sole than the 5. Now if you consider them the sam

  12. Incorrect. The blade length is short. You must be one of those guys that thinks any iron that isn't a blade is GI. :lol: So blade length is now the defining criteria then ? Got it. Thanks :rolleyes: Depends. How would you categorize a Z545 if a +2 cap played them and conversely a 15 cap playing z965? If the very good golfer plays “GI” and the bad golfer plays blades in this instance who cares. Who plays a club has nothing to do with the category of the club. And I am firmly on record as someone who doesn't care who plays what. Play anything you want to play for any reason you w
  13. Why don't you go to the shop and hit the Rogue irons? Same TT shaft is stock and I would expect similar performance from that head. Should give you a pretty good idea of what to expect.
  14. I traded down for the Wilson staff D300s. Now I play shovels. I consider that anything with a cavity and having a blade length and sole width in the neighborhood of any Ping G series iron must be SGI. AP1 and Hot Metal have the dimensions of SGI but the aesthetics of the head obscure the fact from plain view. Okay. But that is not the standard for SGI per golf digest and golf magazine definition of SGI and GI. Not being glib here but I didn't know either of those publications had explicit definitions of those terms.
