I could see leaving the first one short and having it roll back, but you'd think the next one would be long if anything. Not that I haven't done similar things before...

The other item is the less consistent contact, where the 716 cb seems to fight my shallow swing a little—which was why I was thinking it might be a lie angle issue. > > I'd think the lighter shaft weight (and maybe lighter swing weight) would be a much more likely cause for that kind of inconsistency. > > I have some lead tape showing up today t

It's fugazi carbon steel. They should be much harder than they are, Ping should not have made these soft feeling, it's deceptive and could warrant a class action suit based on fraud. A golfer buying these because he thinks they're going to be that nice hard Ping feeling like Karsten use to make will be completely disappointed. > >
  6. lie angle affects me as well. Stock Mizuno lie angles are just about right (may need to go 1* flatter), but some irons would need to be bent a fair amount for me to swing them well, e.g. Cobra F9. I think the more GI they get, the more they tend upright out of the box, similar to many hybrids.
  7. > @Stuart_G said: > That really hasn't been part of any of the discussions I'm involved in. But for some players with certain impact and swing characteristics, I can see a higher c.g. lending itself to that concept. I wouldn't treat it like any kind of universal truth or valid generalization that applies to everyone. I think the entire thread can/should be distilled down to this point. No universal truths, but there certainly are some trends that appear when you look at enough data. That combined with the psychological impact of the golfer on the process makes all of this inexact
  8. https://www.carlsgolfland.com/mizuno-jpx919-hot-metal-pro-irons Can go from 2* weak to 2* strong, and 3* upright to 3* flat. I've ordered my Mizunos through Carl's, Mizuno builds and drops ships them direct to me according to spec (including wraps). But I think bending 4* weak (from neutral) is probably at or past the limit the head can safely handle. Also would be a fairly significant bounce change.
  9. yes - was experimenting when I came back to the game and ended up ordering a couple different brands (Titleist, Snell, Cut, Srixon) before finally figuring out I really liked the Chromesoft TruVis (Srixon Q-Star Tour a close second - I prefer a softer feel). I gave some of the others to a buddy, but too lazy to take all of them out and too cheap to buy more TruVis until I lose the other balls I have :D
  10. 45 PW - 50 GW - 55 SW - 58 LW All relatively low bounce, especially the 58, as I tend to play in hard/tight conditions and it works best with my shallow swing. I also like to be able to open the club face, I find that hard to do with even medium bounce wedges. Also depends if you hit all your wedges with full swings or not. There are times I can leave the 58 out as I typically don't hit that full swing, and am comfortable playing partial swings and going more bump-run around the green rather than flops. Totally depends on where/how you play and your swing.

I have generally been choking down on the PW when I need to split that difference, but I'm not super consistent with it and really struggle to get to that 10 yards above GW. My wedges go 58-54-50-PW46(srixon785); long clubs are 4i, then driving iron, 3wood, driver. I use the driving iron and 3W a lot, and the 58 is my primary around the green club. > > > > > > Tips on how to approach expe
  12. I believe you can bend the HMPs a bit, but 4* seems like a lot and you will affect bounce and offset (you can get up to 2* weak or strong when you order one). You're better off buying an HMP 5i (which is 23*) and selling the extra 4i - that should be a reasonably easy club to sell, as it works well as a "driving iron" for guys with other iron sets.
