  1. LOVE 1. Adjustability 2. Dull (non-glare) finish 3. Weight higher in the blade

    I appreciate the advice, but I would like to point out that many professional golfers "dip" or "squat" or whatever you want to call it on the downswing including of course Mr. Woods. However, they put in a lot more practice time than I do and can time the move better. Except for the occasional fat shot, it's not necessarily a bad thing.

    Great ideas guys! I've also been looking at the Ping I210, but I have trouble shaking my bias in favor of forged clubs. I think they are phasing out the Srixon Z785 to get ready for the next model.

    I am relatively tall and have an upright swing. I also drive my legs down to impact. All of this causes the miss to be FAT. So I need all the help I can get. I love my Cally X-Forged irons, but I'm getting bored and drooling over the new Mizzy JPX 921 Tours. However, I've been down the road before (twice) with Mizuno and we don't get along too well. But, like a repeated bad relationship, I'm sure this time will be different. Or should I make a more different choice?
  5. I'm happy for you. It's a joy to find the right equipment to fit your swing. So don't read the following... If you look at Callaway's player irons, like the MB for example, for each 1/2 inch longer, the lie is 1/2 degree flatter. So the 2 iron at 39.5 inches has a lie of 59.50. If you follow this same system into the hybrids, a 2 hybrid at 40.50 inches should have a lie of 58.50 degrees. But it doesn't. It's 57 degrees. So the players hybrids are ALREADY 1.5 degrees flat. If you ordered it 2 degrees flat then you are almost 4 degrees flat which is A LOT. If it works for you GREAT. Ho
  6. I hate to be a downer here, but shouldn't the lie of the club strictly be determined by the number that places the club precisely flat on the ground at impact. You don't want the toe or the heel of the club impacting the ground first because this could cause the club to twist.
  7. I've always wondered if you couldn't just grind down the hosel a little (i.e. shorten it) to reduce weight. Theoretically it might push the sweet spot slightly toward the toe, but don't blades already have the sweet spot a little "healward" to start with? It might move it right in the middle! Also, it looks like these blades have reasonably long hosels.
  8. What a massacre! How could he? I can't look. LOCK HIM UP!
  9. My old Epic SZ is a 9 degree, but I have it set up at 10 degrees. The Mav I tested was a 10.5 degree regular version.
  10. They had them at our club for demo purposes. I don't know how. It's not available at retail yet. I liked it so much I wanted to keep the demo club, but sadly I had to give it back.
  11. There is one other point I would like to emphasize. Feel is super important to me. It's just got to feel good or I have no interest. Epic Flash didn't feel good to me. It felt hard and the sound was like nails on a chalkboard. Epic SZ feels awesome. Mavrik feels awesome too.
  12. I agree with you. The Epic SZ still rocks. I skipped the Rogue and Epic Flash and was planning on skipping the Mavrik too. However, I found the Mavrik longer, easier to hit, and more forgiving. It just went long and straight. I don't know what else to say.
  13. 10 1/2 degree regular head with my normal AD DI 6X shaft.

    Mavrik Love

    When I saw the pictures of the Mavrik, I was VERY unimpressed. The Marvik name sounded stupid and ironic since the "tech" as in jailbreak and flash face was already out and not revolutionary. I figured it's a new year, so every manufacturer needs to pump out a new club and pretend it's the best thing ever. Our club had a few demo drivers and today I took one out on the course for a test drive just for the sake of trying it out. Very, very unenthusiastic. One hit and WOW! I'm sold. First of all, it looks great in the address position. Second, the ball rockets off the face. Third, it feel
  15. Chromesoft feels way better and flies farther. It's better all the way around. If you want to pretend you're a "player" use the Pro V1. The range balls at our club are Pro V1's. Mis hit one slightly and it HURTS!
