  1. Angle of descent is the most important number for holding greens.
  2. Heres all the info, and some additional pictures: https://www.golfwrx.com/650873/edel-introduces-swing-match-wedges-for-2021/?utm_source=Front&utm_medium=Featured_Center_Top&utm_campaign=GolfWRX_OnSite&utm_content=main
  3. I have bought and sold and bought a Bridgestone J33R driver no less than 3 times and after buying one again for a great deal 2 years ago - Im never selling it ever again. It was never the exact same one but it was the same model so I think that qualifies
  4. There is tens of thousands of dollars ( in the market value ) of putters on the green - insane. But as others have already mentioned, Im shocked to see him continually test the same style even thought his putter is lukewarm at the best of times.
  5. All the results came from the fitters we interviewed and the survey included every current model fairway wood on the market. The reason any one club is either on or not on this list is based solely on what the fitters encounter on a day to day basis while working with golfers based on the two categories. Any fairway wood on or off this list could be the perfect fit you you based on your swing dynamics, but this list is intended to be a baseline for golfers to start their selection process.
  6. For those that have asked, yes other drivers from OEM including Mizuno, Srixon, and PXG were included and from all the conversations I had with each of the fitters also perform extremely well, but this comes down to who the fitters' vote for based on "in the fitting bay results" and we have no influence on that - absolutely ZERO. We state right from the top "In 2021, OEMs have continued to impress us with their ability to utilize new technology and manufacturing methods to create drivers that offer forgiveness and faster more consistent club faces, along with better adjustability and fitting options. These fitting options are key elements because with more drivers being offered, it’s now easier than ever to find the right one for you. That being said, ultimately the best way to find your personal best golf driver is to work with a professional fitter using a launch monitor. The difficult part is a lot of people don’t have easy access to fitters, launch monitors, and club builders—so at GolfWRX, we have done a lot of the work for you." To answer some other questions - The reason shafts aren't included as a part of this process is because that comes down to fitting each player and we are attempting to make this process as easy for golfers outside of the realm of "gear heads" to understand. Shafts are also often related to budget and since the majority of clubs are bought in some sort of stock configuration it's not possible to test everything on the market. As for fade and draw bias ( which someone asked about) I highly suggest taking a look at the comments about adjustability because the same driver can be made both draw and fade bias ( unless we're talking about the SIM2 Max D, Ping SFT, Cobra XD, of B21 ) which are all inherently intended to draw the ball. Very happy to answer any more questions.
  7. We had an idea this might happen from pictures we got earlier in the week and thanks to reporting from our own JW when Louis was spotted talking with Adam Scott about his AutoFlex https://www.golfwrx.com/648385/wgc-workday-championship-tour-truck-report-new-putter-for-rory-more-autoflex-experiments/?utm_source=Front&utm_medium=Featured_Latest&utm_campaign=GolfWRX_OnSite&utm_content=unused
  8. Light weight and low spin don't generally match up when it comes to irons shafts unless you are looking at graphite because of the homogeneous nature of steel. Light weight steel is way more flexible than graphite shafts at the same weight when compared flex to flex ( although that is never quite exact ) Also when it comes to spin and height, iron head design plays a MASSIVE factor based on sole width, and CoG location relative to the shaft and offset - a shaft is only going to play a minimal role in spin compared to player dynamics and club head design. If you are looking for a lower spin shaft I would suggest checking out some graphite options, but overall I would suggest a whole new combo. The shafts I would suggest would be: Fujikura pro Tour Spec Accra iSeries Tour Catalyst Proto Recoil Aerotech
  9. Accra makes some wedge specific shafts in 90 and 130g. http://accragolf.com/iwedge-shafts/
  10. Time to add to my list... I just acquired and rebuilt this set that I had wanted for a VERY long time - Adams CMBs
  11. I believe the big thing with putters is the ability to help golfers that putt poorly and create poor dynamics, As others have stated the technology is in the fit and less so in the ability to tweak one small factor or another - but in the same breathe they are getting better generation over generation - especially drivers and metal woods. A great putter with a 40 year old blade is still going to be a great putter, but a poor putter with some face technology to help with their bad dynamics and a larger shape to help alignment can bring with it some big improvement. Ive seen it too many times to say that "it doesn't matter" because it does. With the OG White hot, its like Odyssey bringing back a refined and better version of something that was successful - just like how Chevy reintroduced the Camaro. Also just like the Camaro, buying a new car doesn't make you a better driver - but some technology can help assist with accident avoidance and when it comes to new gear its similar - its not instantly going to just make you a better golfer but it puts you in a position to fail less often and in turn hit better shots.
  12. Endo forged, micro milled face, super soft, crazy value if you can find a nice used set - These were the last forged irons Cleveland did before ( cleveland/srixon) went full bore with srixon irons in the US and other than the sole grind Tour VT are the pre (X)45 series blades 945s and cavity, the famous 745.
