  1. Ahhh budget schmudget. Blast right through that $500 and get whatever you want, and custom built, the first time (for you Mizuno JPX 919 Forged long irons and 919 Forged Tour shorts would be an idea for a combo). You'll blow more $$$ going cheap buying and selling used junk you never get along with. Welcome back to the game, and to this fourm. And please, consider ceasing the use of "Mizzy" in future posts, we don't need any more of it, only requires one more later to spell MIZUNO. (I wish I could "only" play 1.5 times a week)

If routinely a 6, 7, or 8 amount of GIR, that type player is high likely not to have the ball striking ideal for a blade, and GIRs could go higher with another iron choice. If the player hits an 11, 12, 13+ amount of GIR pretty regulary, than IMO they would be able hit most any iron platform they choose. > > Maybe **some players will strike more square shots** (and hit more greens) **with a smaller blade style iron** than they woul
  3. > @golfinguru11 said: > I know lots of tour pros don’t play blades but all of them could without **losing much ground**. But for ams, at what handicap do you start **losing strokes** gaming blades? > > fyi-2 handicap who grew up on cbs, just now getting into blades Well here I think you are referring to an iron's particular benefit. I believe the % of GIR that a player hits is a good indicator of when "losing much ground" starts to occur based off the iron platform the player uses. Starting from a perfect 18/18 greens where does the player most consistently fall? If ro
  4. Cannot agree more. The 4-iron for me is as long as my 5-wood, and then some. I had a measured shot from the rough today of 214m. I had to use an iron there, so I gave it everything and wow does that thing deliver. It's normally my 175m stick, but the reserve in this club is stunning. Gator, I think you're going to find you want to keep that 4 in your bag with the blades. The 4, and the 400LST Driver are just legends. They're the only two I'd run back into a burning house for. sneaking into your profile a selfie of standing in the vault, very clever. hope you had white gloves on while taking

  8. I wanna hear a steady stream of "buzz" that articulates success out in the field. to me launch monitor/driving range stories do not validate anything.
  9. IMO nope. you'd find no more enjoyment if you started with iBlade and went to S55 than if you started with S55 and went to iBlade. my assumption is if you fall in love with one of them first, the second one becomes completely unnecessary.
  10. Why did you choose the 55's instead of the iblades Ryan? David, Ya know I just never got along with the feel of iBlade compared to S55. Now, obviously having S55 first led to quite a bit more time with that iron than iBlade, and subsequently I know/knew the S55 really well. I also really had no reason to ever change to iBlade, maybe that fact always had me reflecting about it's performance vs my favorite S55. And, since S55 was the first iron of PING that I ever played there might have been that sentimentality with them as well. So eventually I had enough and got off the iBlade. S55 went i
  11. John, Bridgestone B330s pre-2017 was a ball I played exclusively for years. Tried SRiXON for a run with the Z-Star XV '17 into '18, ball was fantastic, but veeeeeeery firm. Got some demo TP5 & TP5x (again) from my rep at the end of '18 and finally put them in play (I used to give them all away). I'll tell you what, IMO the TP5 ball has turned out to be the best overall ball among anything I have played. And I'm a firm believer in judging what the ball does around the green and working your way backwards. Love it around the green, 40-80 it's very spinny. Feels great off full wedges, short
  12. IMO they are a nice long iron replacement option (e.g. been pleased with the single i500 4 iron added to my bag) if you formerly played anything blade or players CB the complete i500 set might feel/sound peculiar, and therefore totally unsatisfactory. however, I think players coming from a larger GI cavity back iron looking for a more compact iron will think a complete of i500 are the bees knees. they do not have the point of reference of feel/sound that makes i500 seem out of the ordinary, they're used to firm faces.
  13. actually their performance has gone up, it's IMO their appearance that has gone down (hence an Anser still lingers in my bag).
  14. enjoying the addition of an i500 4 iron to the bag.
