    Not necessarily true. There’s a thread somewhere about sweepers using ZX7 and ZX5 irons. I personally am a sweeper and I couldn’t possibly love my ZX5/ZX7 combo set more. Best irons I have ever owned or hit, bar none!!

    For sure, they are just generalizations. Only going to know if you actually hit it.

  2. Srixon Zx7 is larger and is better for someone who takes more of a divot. T100s is smaller and is better for someone who take less of a divot.


    There is more offset on the Zx7 and less offset on T100s. 


    Both are great irons.

    Good Morning everyone.


    Has anyone had a chance to hit the Callaway UW? (apologies if already a thread, did a quick forum search and found nothing) 


    From pictures this club looks like it would be great as a 5 wood, and i've been searching for something compact to swap out with my DI. 




    I have and I hit it in the 19* offering. Launch was about that of my 5 wood but the spin was significantly improved. If you have trouble with spin on a 5 wood, I'd recommend it.

    If you like the height of the X try the left dash, lower spin in long clubs but still high ball flight with plenty of green side spin


    100% agree on that.

  5. @TexasRig Golf balls are one of the least understood pieces of equipment in golf. Without going too much into detail...the peak of the ballflight and how it falls is critical. Prov1x, Prov1, AVX (from left to right), farthest left being the height peak and farthest right being lowest peak. In other words... Prov1x peaks higher than AVX off the driver. However...a better comparison would be the Left Dash Prov1x because of the firmness of the golfballs are more similar.


    Now in terms of inconsistency you are seeing with the Prov1x it would be important to know if you are using the most recent Prov1x 2021 or last years model. 


    Please let me know 



  6. @JamesG12 No worries!


    Left Dash is a good ball for sure. However, it will still launch higher than prov1. 


    For any face that flexes like an apex, you will notice the initial launch will always be higher. That's why the apex launch high even at their lower lofts. So avoiding irons with that feature would be smart.


    If you like those apex pros (which have less of that flexible face than apex), ZX7 is a great choice. Similar offset, similar cg locations, similar blade length, but no club face-like technologies that are present in apex pros. 


    I'd expect lower launch angles with Zx7 when compared to the apex pros

  7. @JamesG12 If your contact is good and you get your desired ball flight consistenly I would look at golf ball, loft, head before you look at shaft. However, if you are saying your contact is inconsistent, then look at the shaft to help change your strike.

    Tsi3 & Ping G425 LST are the ones I would compare against. Just depends on what you are looking for, your strike tendencies & miss tendencies. 


    I would go up in loft with the Tsi3. So if you are 9 degrees in the LST go with 10 in the Tsi3.

  9. From a feel perspective best to go based off putter and partial wedge shots inside 80 to 50 yds. Per Eric Loper, Taylormade's former and now Callaway's Lead in golf ball design, most players will chose a golf ball based on feel off the putter and wedges as well as the performance on partial wedge shots. 


    From a performance perspective, that's a whole other conversation. I could write a whole article on that. However to keep it simple...for irons and driver, golf ball can effect the intial launch and spin without changing loft of an iron or driver as well as the downrange ballflight (apex height & decent angle). You change this trajectory of your golf ball just by going from a prov1 (lower initial launch, lower apex, lower decent) to prov1x (higher initial launch, higher apex, higher decent) for example. 



  10. @aftersun If you're strike is inconsistent best to look at the shaft. If you think it's too heavy it probably is. If you like the T200 don't sleep on the Mizuno JPX Forged. It plays one degree more in loft (31* 7 iron), but has a similar sole width.

  11. Ship times for G425 product is up to 12 weeks now.


    Grips are on back order so they might have the heads, the shafts, but if the grips are on back order it will delay your order significantly. 


    My recommendation is to just order the ping grips only.

  12. @tgoodspe1991 I have hit both. I210 will spin more at the same loft. Definitely softer in feel. Great to pair with a firmer golf ball. 



    Offset in millimeters (mm) Ping I210 vs Cobra MiM: 


    In the 4i: Ping i 210 has more offset (4.57mm) vs Cobra MiM (3.4mm)


    In the 7i: Ping i210 has less offset (2.28mm) vs Cobra MiM (2.5mm) 


    In the PW: Ping i210 has less offset (0.76mm) vs Cobra MiM (1.9mm) 


    In my opinion, Cobra MiM is better compared to the Titleist T100 in terms of offset.



    Note: The Ping i210 and the T100 are similar in headweight. The Cobra MiM will feel slightly heavier.


    I found that the i210 is a unicorn 🙂
