  1. P790's bent 2d weak to blend with my 770s. they are a tad clicky but I got used to it for the benefits they provide. If you game the full set and have higher speed, just know its a club strong and have at it, or get the new 770s... - b
  2. 770 vs 790 is not a big difference honestly. Some are more put off but the larger blade the others but in lenght its only 2 MM I would look at it as what lofts do you like as the 790s are about a club stronger. I bend mine to blend with the OG P770s I play now 8-W (which are are forged CB similar to the RAC, just with some tungsten on the 3-7i). IMHO you can't go wrong with either a bit more about your preferred launch/style of clubs. If you bend P790s weak, they are just bigger 770s - b
  3. I golf with Oakley Flak 2.0 XL with Rx lenses but if that is too much bend, I also have a sport set of simple frames I did get from my optometrist which wasn't all that expensive, from a brand called Switch. Very basic lenses that swap out with simple magnet at top, so I have smoke, yellow and clear for different light conditions. Those wear like normal glasses to me and I use them for cycling and other things. good luck hunting! - b
  4. There is a reason some think the Eye2 is the GOAT of CB irons. The only thing I have to get over is the offset, but I could game my BeCU E2+ set today with no loss of scoring compared to my 770/790 combo. They. Just. Work. - b
  5. I wager if you are fit well into the shaft now (as the pro fitters have commented on) the speed bump won't matter. Basic training is 3-5 mph bump, its not turning us into 10+ mph faster swingers In the training I did this summer I saw the bump but its also hard to maintain it without really working on course with the mindset to enable that speed. My Stiff GD IZ shaft is plenty stable for the 100-108 MPH I deliver. One reason I liked the shaft is it never felt loose to me: could go after it and it was plenty stable for my delivery. I have an X in another older GD model which frankly I can't really tell much of a difference with though GD's charts show it to be a bit softer in terms of recommended MPH. Just because a chart says S or X doesn't mean its the absolute rule
  6. Mavrik Max (which CPO has had on sale for a bit, so supply is dwindling) would line up fairly well. I gamed a Rogue for a bit, my buddy the X which is a bit larger, and a bit stronger lofted. A regular Mavrik Hybrid stops at a 6H/26d, the Max offers a 7.
  7. Game Cally woods/hybrids as I have for a decade just used to looks etc...some GD shafts, some others. Mizuno drivers have come a long way and if I didn't already have the ecosystem (and trade in/up) would give them a hard look more because they perform vs. country of origin, but that is a bonus I suppose.
  8. Not that unusually after many cycles. We just have to get used to the concept that with bonded 2 piece drivers and super thin tech faces, you have two points of fatigue. I've cracked one face myself. Fortunately if it happens within a year every company replaces no questions asked, within 2 years the better companies hook you up. And those nice companies continue to make more for us. Callaway CPO has GBB Epics, just have to wait for a good sale and you get a 1y warranty if you want a replacement, otherwise can shop for newer models too - b
  9. Nothing wrong with headcovers: its about confidence and execution. I play with a scratch guy I carry my irons a bout a club longer. His 4H goes about as far as my 5i. He puts it on the green. A lot. Drops 180y dimes. So if I am having a hard time doing that with my 5biron, I should bust out a 26d 5H and be like him vs. being stubborn and missing greens with a 5i, should it come to that. Now I do game some tech 5/6 irons for help (P790) and they have given me more confidence in that shot but a 180y carry over water usually is an easy 4H for me (23d club) vs. nut the 5i.
  10. My best friend games rogue pros (the rogue iron line didn't get much love good clubs as well!) and if I had to dip my toes in that pool 'd give the mavrik/pro line a hard look as well. Tech, not too chunky, not too expensive either. A 2 cap 110+MPH fellow I know has killed it with the Mavriks for a year and the forgiveness helps his game for sure. He's not a proper WRX'r, no blades
  11. Its hard to argue with 3-4 shafts for the price of one if you like the GD profile hence the hidden gem of the YS Nano reloaded. A YS is my backup driver shaft, and I just tossed a 70g in my 7w. I have IZ in driver/4w (picked up 4W on BST like a proper WRX'r). The profiles are a smidge different, but it feels like a GD shaft and works for me.
  12. Lot of comments OP. Plenty of fantastic clubs, your cap is in the players distance/players CB category for marketing sake but you can play a MB or a Ping G series just the same as long as you were happy with the look. Of the above I would suggest ZX5/7 combo: won't break the bank, great feel, good looks. I also am partial to a P790/770 blend. Bit more help both cases 4-6/7 depending when you want to cut it off. Personally, I game a 4H as more versatile but that is a personal decision when you figure out where your gapping starts to bunch along with confidence factor on course. Anyone can stripe a 4i on the range, but under some pressure from a shaggy lie with 180 of forced carry...gimme the headcover for my game and speed. Happy shopping.

  15. People love to play musical shafts here for drivers and to a lesser extent iron shafts but most irons are set sells not head only. I like browsing for head only ads myself as the shafts in there rarely will be something that fits me reasonably well USPS has a true talent for misplacing long boxes...I have had 3 shaft shipping problems in the past year with them, including one single shaft now coming from FL to PA that is just 'delayed' for a week+, no tracking updates in site.
