  1. Brooks, Casey, et al have had ample opportunity to sign with other hardware sponsors since Nike's exit from the equipment sphere. They continue to play Mizuno irons because they like how they perform.
  2. I'm more excited over Mizuno and Srixon offerings, personally. I've never been especially fond of the look or feel of Callaway's irons, and these (in looks) are no different. I'm not especially fond of hollow iron construction.
  3. If ever there was one I want to be selected for! These are on my list of two or three irons I want to end up in my bag next season.... 1. City and State? Carmel, IN 2. Handicap? 11.4 3. What ZX iron set do you want to test? ZX7 (ZX5 4i and 5i would be ideal) 3. Are you able to test equipment on a golf course with one week of its receipt? Yes 4. Current Iron setup? Mizuno JPX-850 Forged 4 - GW, TT XP115 S 5. What is the most exciting thing about the ZX irons? One piece forging and the v-sole 6. Do you agree to participate in an ongoing testing thre
  4. I kind of a like a 3 degree gap in wedges. Since I don't play competitively, I'm thinking I'll either drop the 3w or 60 and go 50/53/56/60 in wedges, or just carry 15 clubs.
  5. I always look forward to the new Mizuno MP release, whether I'm in the market for new irons or not. Most of my bag is 5 years old, so I'm looking forward to a driver fitting and pitting the new Srixons and JPX against each other.
  6. I think as long as you aren't making a huge change in shafts, you'll be fine. If you go from one shaft to another, without a huge difference in weight, the learning curve isn't very steep. I once went from a 90g to a 130g (detailed in my post above), and that was a bit of a shock initially. I went from those same 130g shafts to a 115g and there was zero adjustment period. I do miss a heavier shaft though. I think my next set will be in the 120-125g range.
  7. Have you been on the course with them yet? My first set of clubs were Taylormade R7s with whatever stiff shaft they put in those as the stock offering. I had no concept of shaft weight or anything; I just went to Dicks, hit a couple of irons on the launch monitor, the guy said I was hitting those better than the others, and I bought them. Looking at TM's club specs by year, it looks like it was a 90 gram shaft. After playing a few years, I was at a Golfsmith and hit a set of used Mizuno MP-62 and was smitten. I had read on forums about the cult following of Mizuno ir
  8. I could understand why a tour pro might do this, but for amateurs who are always trying to get better and play the game recreationally, we'll always chase that magic pill combination of equipment that suits our swing and allows us to play the best golf of our lives. Once we find it, we'll always wonder if there is something marginally better out there, and into the rabbit hole we go.
  9. I'm incapable of striking the ball in the center of the clubface as consistently as a tour pro, so a couple of miles an hour at the further expense of ball striking isn't an appetizing experiment for me. 44.5 - 45.5" seems to be the sweet spot for me.
  10. Until he cleans up his attitude, I don't care how far he drives the ball, I still won't be a fan.
  11. Only the ball markers and headcover are "usable" for me. I've got too many water bottles taking up space in my cabinets already and have no use for a "cash bag". I'll be saving my $120 this year.
  12. Every other year, for me. I had been playing a 5+ year old 56, which I used for almost all greenside shots, that I loved. Middle of last season I got a new one and it was a night and day difference, as far as spin was concerned. I thought I just wasn't any good at spinning up the ball on chips...fresh grooves changed my mind on that.
  13. It's always the same answer for me; Mizuno. The new MP line, in this case.
  14. I don't need a new driver, but I'm going to replace my 5 year-old M1 this spring all the same.
