  1. Bringing this thread up and back to life. I like tinkering and decided to follow the formula after building a 6 iron I really like. Just curious as I have found various calculations and not having any physics background. Is this calculation valid to some form? It makes sense at a basic level when you are comparing all the components in the way it does. I'm planning to build my set using it at 3/8 increments and solve for headweight and see what that requires from tip weights and lead tape.
  2. Not to hijack but I just started doing this and found it very easy and fun to tinker with. on a side note, I’m most fearful of starting with shaft blanks and not really knowing how much I should rely on puring or some form of correct orientation of the shaft? Does following a trim chart solve for at least consistent flex profile?
  3. So I am still at this playing with different configurations and building my own irons. I'm playing right now with a 6 iron and a 9 iron and after slowly adding lead tape to the 6 iron I started really liking the feel and dispersion. To my surprise it came in at D9 on my swing scale! I am also using a mid-size grip that weighs 63 grams, so it is also changing the formula around. I'm going to go back down the weight scale and see what results I get to confirm, but seems like having a 9i that is in the E's is ridiculous? How do you advise I continue? EDIT: I did go and reread the posts above, and
  4. @Valtiel I'm located in Iowa@Howard Jones I trust the data from this user on another forum around the difference between Trackman and Quad: [FINAL RESULT] Trackman 4 VS GC2+HMT/GCQuad - Golf Simulator Forum He says that the club path will always show more open by about 1-3 degrees because the Quad has no way to measure the start point, but Trackman measures from the start of the swing. Face angle trackman calculates while the Quad directly measures it which he says means that Trackman shows about 1-3 degree more closed than Quad. I don't know for certain, but Quad is measuri
  5. Hi all - I've been a member for awhile and was fortunate lately to come into the possession of a QCQUAD. I'm about a scratch golfer, but never played in high school or college, other than 2 times a year when I was younger. I can be analytical when it comes to club data and love tinkering with clubs. I've been watching eBay for a good loft/lie machine to get into it more and soon here want to play with club making. Anyways, the concept of MOI matching is really interesting to me as I would like to make the effort feel equal in all of my swings no matter the length of iron. I read a few posts

Sounds a bit drastic, even the strongest tour pros aren't playing SW that high. I realized the club I really liked was actually D7 due to the midsize grip. It’s all an estimate and know they started life as D3. So 12G more in head
  8. Not questioning you, but why even use screws in irons if they aren’t easily changeable?
  9. When I originally got my PXG irons, they were D3. I have been playing with lead tape and bumped up my 8 iron to D9 and find I love that feeling at contact with that heavier swing weight. Seems like I improve consistency all across the board. Feels like I should be able to just heat up the head slightly and unscrew some of these weights and replace with heavier ones. Why are the weights so expensive from people on eBay? I ended up on my 8 iron adding 12 grams to the back, which would be a lot easier to just put some different screws in. For $8 a weight, I might as well just play with my l

  11. I've been searching for the best golf shoe for my flat feet (I have orthopedics that I always use). To date the best I have found are the Addidas Tour360. These seem to give nice ankle support and help with my foot from rolling inward on steps. I was just at a PGA Superstore and tried a few different shoes, not finding exactly what I am looking for. The next closet thing I found were the FJ Contour series (with spikes). Was curious who else out there has this issue and what they have been using.
  12. I just moved to the Atlanta area after coming off my slowest year of golfing (maybe 5 rounds). I use to be a 2 handicap and now just seem to push fade or pull draw a shot and its time to start working on my game again! I am a big fan of Mike Adams line of thinking with bio mechanics, but he doesn't have anyone listed on his website in the area. I am also a fan of Stack and Tilt as I have always naturally stayed very centered over the golf ball. Who would people recommend in the North half of Atlanta?
