  1. Thanks! That all makes great sense and I have had some soreness in my right elbow which is probably explained from the high SW. I'm hoping in the next few years to get a full fitting once I've got the money and time to play more. If it didn't cost $350 for the fitting and then another $1500 plus for the clubs i would jump on it today. I live in St. Louis so we've got Club Champion and lots of local clubs to choose from for fitting, but I'm guessing Club Champion is the way to go.
  2. That makes a lot of sense! I wish I had a PGA Superstore near me for me to try things out, but unfortunately I only have Golf Galaxy and Club Champion. Once COVID restrictions are gone I will try to go to a golf club demo day so I can try some different clubs out for free or a small fee.
  3. Thanks! Ya I figured the added length on those clubs was a lot of the problem. I'll probably look into a hybrid to eliminate my 3 and 4 iron for those shots around 240-250 yards. I used to swing a wood that was extended 2" before I knew better and let me tell you, that was a sight to watch.
  4. I bought them directly from Callaway PreOwned with them already extended 2" (I didn't customize them afterwards). I figured the swing weight would cause consistency issues, but wasn't sure if the lighter head weight would have much of an effect on distance. The Mavrik SZ standard length is 45.75" which is what I have it in because I was worried adding much more would worsen my contact issues.
  5. I have not played with reducing the length yet. That has crossed my mind to maybe take 1/2 inch off to see how that feels. I'm already 3* upright and my arms are slightly shorter than some my height (6'4" wingspan) so I'm not sure how much I can take off before things go crazy, but I'd definitely like to give it a shot.
  6. Thanks! I'll look into those grips to help get my SW dialed in closer together. We have a Club Champion near me which I will probably go to in the next few years once I have a nice chunk of change to drop on new clubs and when I start playing more. It's just hard to convince my wife for me to drop $2000 on clubs when I only play a dozen or so times a year. You'll have to let me know what your fitter recommends for you in your next session and good luck!
  7. Ok thanks! Once these COVID shutdowns are over I'm going to try and find a place where I can get someone to help me dial in the swing weights and gapping to fit my needs. I just wish I had $2000 for a quality fitting and full set of new clubs.
  8. Thanks! I might try to add some weight to them to see if that helps. I know most people struggle with longer irons and that's why they go hybrids, but to me it seems like I have a hard time because it feels like the weight is more in the butt section than by the head. I'll take some lead tape and play around with it!
  9. Hey everyone! First post and tried to find a thread on GolfWRX or Reddit without much help. I'm around a 15 handicap (only play 10-15 rounds a year so can't say for sure) and am 6'7" and 200lbs with a swing speed 110-115mph with my driver. A couple of years ago I purchased the 2014 Apex 3-AW DG SL X100 shafts with 2" extensions from Callaway Preowned after getting fit at Golf Galaxy (I know not the best place, but it's what I had at the time). I absolutely love the 5-AW, but really struggle with the 3 and 4 irons in terms of distance and face control. The 3 iron goes around 220 (sa
