  1. Have the same head and came with the same tip weight, i've used a butane torch for about 40 seconds then i've used a metal straw over the tip weight so i can apply some preasure. Took me less than 2 minutes
  2. If you can hit your in between yardages consistently on daily basis, yes, the gap wedge maybe isn't the best option for you and also depends a lot on the lofts you play For my game, i have found that a G is a must cause i have troubles with distance control
  3. In the last 10 years i've only learned 3 lessons: 1) never sell an old set that you loved just cause you want something new and shiny, keep them for a while 2) never underestimate the impact of a new shaft fit, can change the whole equation 3) never, NEVER buy a new set of irons without testing at least 1 club of each segment of the set, i'm talking about a short iron, a mid iron and a long iron. I learned that le$$on the hard way Went from x20 tours to mp53, loved and gamed the 53's w/s300 until the shafts felt loose for me, went for a ping fitting cause i want to try iblade's and i200's but just had the 6i of each with a few shafts. End up with the i200 w/modus 120x and pay a lot for them (prices in south america are +30/40% vs usa), when i saw how big the pw and how much offset the 4i has i knew i made a mistake but heck i insist on using them for 2 seasons. My hdcp went from 11 to 18, too much bounce for me and my confidence was gone. Last year i've decide to give the 53's one more chance, first round was a 82 (for a 18 capper back then), went home swap shafts and was like a new honeymoon, modus + mizuno is a match made in heaven and in my opinion, the mp53 felt better than any non blade mizuno current stuff (mp20's are on a different league but still think mp32 were the greatest)
  4. Try nippon modus 120x or 125s hard stepped
  5. +1 here And what annoys me the most it's that damned port won't let me use the shotscope tag for my putter. I really like the shape of the pistol gt 1.0 but why the heck they don't offer the option to buy one with a regular cap?
  6. Driver: hzrdus smoke black 70 6.5 3w: aldila tour green 75x 3h: ping tour 95x (benched by 2i) 2i: ust recoil 95f5
  7. As you said before, any ping would be great as they are designed with shallow faces, i recomend you to try also titleist tsi2/ts2/h1 and taylormade m2/4/6/sim max but take care of the shaft, most come stock with high launch offerings that have softet tips and that can end up in "fore left"
  8. 90 w/7i actually is a pretty good base for a borderline s/x but depends a lot on how hard you release the shaft aka stressing the shaft Are you looking for speed training or just want to experiment? I did the same a few years back switching from nv 75s to blueboard x73 without leaving anything on the table For an X flex, tensei blue it's not that strong, maybe just a touch stronger than a white tipped and extra inch. I wouldn't say many mitsubishi offerings play strong to flex unless you go to TX. I remember the original tensei orange TX that felt like rebar
  9. This season i've tried a few different options all from GP. Used to play crosslines full cords with 5 layers of tape and this year went for softer grips but all in mid size For me, the best is a combo of tour suedes in wedges cause they are great without glove and mcc on the rest. For my putter its SS pistol 1.0
  10. if you want forgiving heel/toe strike, iblade should be fine and better than MC, if you are talking about missing high/low not much difference i210 are in a different league, wider soles, more offset, very consistent irons but for a specific type of golfer, gamed 2 years the i200, skip de i210, fit for iblades but went back to my old mp53
  11. You got me on that, but definetly irons for "good golfers"
  12. Properly speaking, iblades are not true blades cause they have a small cavity in the back and set the bar high for a new era of more forgiving players sets, definetly in the better feeling bracket from ping standards but lack the forged feeling (but great for cast) and as years go by, they'll get the status of one of the greatest of the modern era but also think that mp 53/54 are better
  13. Yes they are All my grips are midsize, have the microsuades in my wedges, multicompounds in my irons and tour bct on woods, definetly the suades are smaller than the others but also bigger than regular grips
  14. Gravitate always towards low/low shafts (by the standar in their prime, maybe not current low/low) Gamed - nv green 65/75 - Atx green 75 - diamana white 73 - xtreme green - GD throttle - rip alpha 70 (all time fav) - rogue silver 60 - evenflow black 75 (hate it) - hzrdus smoke black 70 (current)
  15. Long story short, end up buying a set of DG s300 pretty cheap for a built up but heads were taper and shafts are parallel, sold the heads alone instead using a reamer and kept the shafts for a new set Any recomendation of iron heads to look up on the bay that use .370 shafts? Every set i used in the last few years were .355
  16. My dad have the 3w and 5w since the release date, he's not playing much anymore but don't have any plans for a change. Hit them a few times, besides shafts don't suit me, the heads are one of the easiest to hit on and off the deck i ever tried. High spinning, a touch of draw bias but stupidly consistent, look elsewhere for distance but if you want easy woods, they're on par with anything in the market
  17. You can search for callaway x 20/22 tours fairly cheap on ebay, nice mid size heads with less than average offset but by no means "minimal offset" or r9 tp and i'm sure you'll be under 400 If you want something smaller you can look for tm rsi tp/psi tour, mizuno mp52/53/54, callaway xforged If you want something bigger you can look for tm r11, tm rsi 2, callaway apex or cobra f8/9 Tons of options in that price bracket
  18. What's the problem? Too light, too heavy, block it to the right, snap hook, or it's just a visual thing?
  19. i'm waaaaay shorter than you haha but similar speed, have a few friends that suffer the same but they swing faster than me, it's more of a tempo and swing style issue than a speed issue I really get along with the modus 120 but can't stand PX, i'll suggest yout to try modus 105x they were too light for me but they felt pretty firm for the weight. Another option you could try is steelfiber
  20. I'm done with hybrids, after trying to use them for years i finally give up on them, main miss is high toe so aka hook to the rough (no matter what shaft) so i'm looking for a DI to fill the gap between 3w(265) and 4i (215) and i think loft 17/19 should be ok Search for a while on ebay for options cause i don't have access to a fitting in my area Any good options that don't break the bank? i'm on a budget, want to keep it under 150 and bias to graphite shaft - UDI 790? - T-mb? (u500 are way too expensive) - HMB? Info if it helps Irons Mizuno mp53 1° weak w/Modus 120x Driver SS: 113 7i SS: 92 and avg carry 175 Stock ballflight: high and draw/hook Type: Sweeper Cheers Frank
  21. I was searching on ebay for a new shaft for my Driving iron and found a recoil 809 F5 (X stiff) shaft pretty cheap, the problem is that i've been searching online for a while and found nothing about the shaft, in the UST web they only list up to 808 F4 https://www.ustmamiya.com/golf-shafts/brands/recoil/recoil-800-series-iron/ Not even in de discontinued 2017 version https://www.ustmamiya.com/golf-shafts/brands/recoil/discontinued-models/2017-recoil-800-series-iron/ Anyone heard something about this shaft being legit or it's a fake? if it's legit, any experience or specs? https://www.ebay.com/itm/114710938621?hash=item1ab54e03fd:g:glkAAOSwBCdgPqFE
  22. Thanks for the replies I'm leaning towards aldila offering because of price and had good experiences in the past. Played og nv green, rip alpha, rip nv atx and rogue silver in my woods in the past and really like them Anyone can compare the og nv vs 2kxv green or current offerings? 100 for a shaft is out of the budget, would like to keep it under 60 cause the head is pretty old, maybe in the future will upgrade for a more current option like udi or u500
  23. Thanks for the recomendation This time i'm leaning more to a graphite shaft and maybe +.5" cause i want to improve my gapping with 3w, it was in my mind even before the old shaft snapped
  24. Nippon modus 120x hard stepped once in mp53 3w aldila nv 85x Driver hzrdus black 70x SS driver 111 to 114mph if my back's having a good day
