  1. What’s a guy gotta do to get a look at this thing?
  2. Thanks so much for taking the time to reply. I'm going to give the Aldila Tour Green a run. Won't know much until spring unfortunately. My final round of the season is Friday :(. Snow is here and coming.
  3. Hey guys, I have an old Callaway X2 Hot 3 Hybrid with an Aldila Blue NXT (I’m guessing) shaft... it’s the OEM shaft the hybrids were shipped with. the ball flight when tee’d up is ridiculously high. We play at a course that has a lot of wind, and on some of the longer par 3’s the ball gets toss around when it’s up in the stratosphere. I’m looking to reshaft with a hybrid shaft that helps promote a lower ball flight. Not too low, as I still want drop and stop out of it... but not to the moon and back. I also don’t want to spend $250 Cad. I’ve been look
  4. Those X Forged CB’s at address give me the tingles. OMG - from the back they’re kinda ugly, but at address they’re amazing.
  5. These discounts kinda go out the window when ordering with different shafts, other than what they send out to the retailers - correct?
  6. Thanks so much, guys! Good to hear your real world experiences with a cavity back wedge. Great to know I haven’t lost my mind
  7. This is very encouraging. I’m playing Nike Vapor Pro Combo Forged irons. I’m trying to check my ego at the door and game wedges that will help me play, not make me look “like a pro” if you know what I mean. I think that 54 CBX2 wedge will be physically larger than the Vapor Pro Combo Gap wedge in the bag... but maybe that will inspire confidence? I did read on one of these threads that the RTX is significantly more forgiving than a Vokey SM8 as an example. The CBX is sounding like a real contender
  8. Am I out of my mind for considering the Cleveland CBX2 sand (54) and lob (58)? Im a 10 handicap currently using older Nike VR Forged wedges. I have a fairly steep angle of attack and when it comes to full 110 yard sand wedge shots from the fairway I struggle with the thin sole on my Nike wedge. Tbh, I hit it terribly. Every review of the CBX2 talks about forgiveness and high handicappers, but Cleveland’s website advertises them for mid/low handicappers. I realize none of this should matter, and just play what works for you, so with that - are there any mid/l
  9. I would say it’s happening. I tried to order a Phanton X 5 on Thursday. The retailer told me the 35” was out of stock and titleist Canada is not bringing anymore in. They did have a 34” still available - which I ordered. I’m sure new models are incoming for 2021.
  10. Hey gang. Tried to order a Phantom X 5 today from a local golf shop, Titleist is out of stock and are not bringing anymore into Canada. Tells me replacements are incoming. Anyone have any insight?
  11. Hey guys, I have a set of Nike Pro Combo Forged irons from 4-AW that I'm going to re-shaft with Project X's. I was a "club fitter" (I use the term loosely) at my family golf store for years, but that was almost 20 years ago. I was about to order the epoxy, ferrule's, shafts, grips, tape, etc...when it sprung on me "what kind of ferrule's do I need?". Are the Nike VPC iron heads prepped for a collared ferrule, or just a standard ferrule? I realize this question is a bit of a long shot, but was hoping someone might have some insight? Thanks!
  12. thanks! Eager to get them dialed in for 2021 ? I think Custom orders are sitting around four or five weeks right now. That’ll put us into some pretty chilly weather up here. ?
  13. Mizuno does not have the standard PX shaft listed as a custom option on their website.... not in Canada anyhow? That’s why I think it’s the case. I have not been fitted before. This is my first time even being in a launch monitor. Or speaking/hitting with a fitter. Just hoping to get dialed in with a ln ideal setup. I have a long term plan for this next set of irons
  14. The more I think about it, you guys might be right. The lead tape (and a substantial amount of it) is definitely not going to help the cause... now to determine if the shaft selection is viable, minus the lead tape? The other catch I've realized is that the PX6.5 shaft I was fitted for isn't available form Muzino. They offer the Project X LZ, but not the standard Project X - not sure how much they differ? I guess I still have a lot of questions that need to be answered... I'm warming up to the MMC irons more and more - due to the positive comments here for "like golfers" opinio
  15. This is a good question, and one I left with the fitter this evening. Waiting to hear back on this. I don’t, but hope they will be sent over via email, as per my conversation with him.
  16. I appreciate this. Quick question, if you don’t mind my asking... what type of player are you/handicap? I don’t play enough to carry a handicap (that’s going to change in 2021) but usually play in the low 80’s. I don’t always “flush the shot” but would consider myself an “alright ball striker”. It’s encouraging to her you’re opinion of the long irons in the MMC... just trying to compare us ?
  17. It's nice to hear. I'm really leaning towards pulling the trigger on the 921F's. I get a sense of confidence (whether it's false or not) from a forgiveness stand point before even putting them into my bag. Especially with the longer irons (5 and 4). The Project X 6.5 shaft was pure magic in all the others, including the 919F, so I can't imagine how it wouldn't be the same in the 921F. They all felt like butter - it's ridiculous:).
  18. My only concern with this is the drastic difference between the 921F lofts and the MMC lofts - they would have to be some serious loft adjustments made to blend the set....
  19. Hey guys, So I was on a Trackman for an hour and a half this morning at our local fitting outfit. I went in with JPX 921 Forged on my mind, but unfortunately they didn't have a fitting head - but rather just an OEM stock Nippon stiff shaft glued into a 7 iron. So I wasn't able to try different shaft options. Saying that, they did have a 919 Forged fitting head 7 iron, which allowed me to get an idea of how the 921 would react with different shafts installed. I couldn't flush the 921 Forged to save my life. Thin to win, then fat while trying to compensate. This wa
  20. Too funny! I was watching all the YouTube reviews I could, and was thinking this very same thing last night. With these playing so long, a 5 iron would likely be as long as I’d need in an iron. The Mizuno CLK hybrid could sit on top of the irons to bridge the gap between my 3 wood and 5 iron. So happy to hear your opinions on forgiveness! Very encouraging!!!
  21. Thank you so much for the insights. That HMB 921 combo is something I was considering as well! I'm scheduled to see my local fitting facility on the 15th. They should have all the new 921's in hand then and I can compare! I'm excited! I sure hope you're comment on Nike vs. Mizuno forgiveness holds true for me! That would be wonderful. Heck, I might not even need to split set. Just go 4-GW 921F all the way through :)
  22. Hey gang, After the birth of our son, my golf game took a back seat. The summer he was born I bought a new set of Nike Vapor Pro Combo irons (4-GW). I always struggled a bit with consistency in the 5 and 4 iron, but otherwise loved them. Now that my son is older and I have more free time, I have joined a course and plan to play more. I’d like to get a new set of irons. Something forged, and something that offers a little more forgiveness in the long irons. I keep coming back to the new Mizuno JPX921 Forged. I’m wondering if anyone has any insight on how the 921 Forged lon
  23. [quote name='nova6868' timestamp='1403928975' post='9594989'] When does the Pro 63 TS come out? For some reason it's the only one listed as L/M launch, L spin. I'm curious to see how it goes over... [/quote] I just ordered a TS 64 X from People's Golf (Will Peoples). Ordered and shipped in less than 24 hours. Should have it soon
  24. I've toyed with ordering the 3 iron as well.... Fill in the gap between my X2 Hot hybrid and 4 iron perfectly... Hmmm
  25. I went from Hogan FTX old forged irons to the new Apex with XP95 S300's. Butter. Can't tell you how happy I am. Similar to JohnnyBogey, the ball flight is high (not to high) but penetrating. Feel like a million bucks. Forgiving and for the first time ever... I can confidently grab my 4 iron and let er' rip.
