  1. The weight placement seems to have a lot in common with the Srixon ZX7/ZX5 line I currently play. If I am right, I will love these as well! I have always been a bit of a Ping fanboy and I would really like for these get my bag back to Ping.
  2. Wondering how many other WRXrs have unusual playing conditions this year and if your handicap has been affected? I live in the southern mid-west. We had 3 to 5 days of record cold this winter that extensively affected the courses within a hundred mile radius. Our Bermuda fairways have been hit hard with winter kill! I can't remember how many acres of sod Southern Hills in Tulsa has brought in, but a crazy amount. Of course, they have the budget to do that. My local course has brought in a fair amount. Every green has new sod collars that are still just huge sod chunks not yet fi
  3. I think you summed it up in two words "That's golf".
  4. These are REALLY good looking. I am so into my Srixon ZX7's that I can't even imagine replacing them but if I would, these would be at the top of my list!
  5. I made my break at the 6i. I am loving them right where they are. Sure the gap between the 6i and 7i is there, but that is an easy gap to work through with your game. On the other hand, the gap from my 5i to my first hybrid is perfect and those would be harder yardages for me to work through.
  6. I did the combo breaking at the 6i. My thoughts on each - The ZX7 is everything I expected with one exception...I have gained some serious distance going from the Z945 with 110 F4 Recoils to the ZX7 with the 95 F4 Recoils. It is every bit of one club consistently. - The ZX5 lets you get away with more and is a little longer yet. Both superb but I do like the size and sole width of the ZX7 more.
  7. Went to have dinner at the club this evening and the driver was there. So from April 8th to May 5th. FWIW, it was a stock shaft. The day of the fitting like many days over the last 6 months I was spraying it in every direction off of the tee. The very nice Ping rep. kept giving me shafts and I would try to ignore what they were and just swing. No matter what the combination was I would hit a few down the middle, then some left and some right. Obviously my swing was everywhere trying to get something to work. FINALLY he handed me one and as soon as I picked it up I said it felt sho
  8. I waited about 10 weeks for a set of Srixon irons and whined and moaned through most of it. I ordered a Ping driver after a fitting on 4/8 at my club...guess I must look for reasons to whine and moan :-). I am not even going to ask about my driver as my frustration with Srixon communication was adequate for the whole industry. It really helps that I am playing well and the rain is at the top of my current list of what I can be annoyed about. If it were not raining so much then I would still have the standard too busy at work to play much anyway. I guess in the end life is pretty amazing i
  9. The i210 is a great iron and they feel good but, if you had a pole for players to list their top 5 best feeling irons, you might be the only player to list them as number one :-). Many Mizunos, many Srixon, many Epons, etc., would certainly top them on my list. Now the i210 might be a better club on the course for many players, but for feel I think they are only good.
  10. I absolutely feel the need for a 58 or 60 in my bag. From 55yds to 70yds that is my go to 100%. I will also use it when short sided and have a bunker to carry. Lastly, with a really short bunker shot and a lip...I got to have it When playing well I rarely need my lob. When struggling, the lob comes into play much more.
  11. Just look at the success the i210's have had on every tour. I have played them before and recently hit them outdoors on a monitor. I can only give an opinion: 1. The i210 provide all the distance consistency anyone could hope for. 2. They can certainly cover up strikes a little off center. 3. Distance is not lacking, but not a match for some of the other lines in this category. 4. Sole is wider than many "players irons". 5. Feel is good, but does not approach the best forged offerings. 6. Not my choice, but can't imagine they would cost anyone strokes on the cou
  12. Same order but in combo breaking at the 6i. Took about 10 weeks for mine. Hope you love them! I am super impressed with the product...Love mine. I hope management will learn the importance of communication!
  13. The problem is not the perception of fault, it is the what every company can control...communication. Read the thread to learn there is no consistency in what is said or in what order things will be filled. I got my combo after about 10 weeks. I am SO impressed with a cavity having the same feel as the best feeling blades on the market. I am even more surprised by the ZX7 distance and that the ZX5's exceed that distance. Having said that, Srixon has a lot less luster in my eyes compared to how I felt about them 3 months ago. Srixon nailed the irons...AGAIN, but management h
  14. I have a moderate SS and a bit of a flip at the bottom. Compared to the Z945, I found the BP to launch higher and have higher spin. Another case to prove a lot of swings are very different and provide varying results. Play well!
  15. Hit the Apex Pro at demo days a week or so ago. High and straight with decent feel. Purchased the ZX7. Less high and straight and more distance per number on the sole at least. I really don't know how lofts compare. Both are great looking irons. The Apex Pro reminded me a lot of the latest P770, which I played for a while and liked. The ZX7 reminded me most of the Z945. Same feel with more distance and a bit more forgiving.
