  1. My Bridgestone J33 CB irons from 2006 or 2007.
  2. Never got to try the TS 202 but heard great thing about it.
  3. You are right. Tried them yesterday and they performed well, so solid and trajectory/distance was good, almost similar to the lighter shafts I played but less dispersion. I believe they are X100 shafts, saw the markings when I changed the grips. Although, I have a moderate swing speed, I have a very fast and hard transition swing so that's probably why they work. I was surprised but quite happy, never really played heavy steel stiff shafts in irons before. The irons were forged Tourstage Z101 CBs and they were a good match. Replaced the grips with standard GP Tour Velvets and brought the
  4. yeah most courses have a junior rate which is really almost nothing...have fun...
  5. Tourstage/Bridgestone Z101 3-PW Irons - should have never sold them to begin with.
  6. For the umpteenth time. Tourstage Z 101 Irons Miura Tour Wedges Slighter Seattle Putter Honma TW 747 455 10.5* Driver Tour Edge Exotics EX9 Tour 17* 4 Wood Honma TR 20 Hybrid 21* Old Ping L8 Bag
  7. Let's say a guy has played lighter steel shafts under 100g such as NS Pro 950GH steel shafts or even lighter graphite shafts around 85 grams for years because that's what he's been profiled to play. Player is in fit and in good shape but older, then he switches to heavier shafts such as TT DG S300, S400 or X100 steel shafts, complete disaster and loss of about a club or more and not get the ball on the proper trajectory or by some miracle, hits it straighter and better because heavier club produces more mass at impact and creates better impact and distance. What's going to happen?
  8. I think Miura iron players rave about their true performance because most Miura irons are custom made and fitted by professional and authorized Miura delaers, I think it is the fitting that makes them perform exceptionally well, not so much the design. Having said that, Miura irons and wedges are exceptionally made and all their published lofts and weights are right on spec so from that point of view and then add proper fitting, they will definitely perform better than off the rack unfitted irons.
  9. I have only played the CB 57s and can only compare them to the Bridgestone J33 CBs which I think are Endo forged, different feel, hard to describe, maybe the Miuras had a more solid/dense feeling. Both have a great and soft forged feel but I moved on from the CB 57s and kept the Bridgestones just because I am so used to them and have become my old reliable set of irons. I still play Miura wedges, a 52 and 58 in the Milled Tour version, now these are very soft and solid unlike any other wedges I played in the past.
  10. So lies can easily be adjusted plus/minus 2 degrees?
  11. Right on, the J33 CBs were fitted for me (L/L/L), the Honmas were off the rack, maybe I should get the lies fitted. Good point.
  12. Old set was Bridgestone J33CBs - small cavity/blade like and thin sole - can't seem to get used to the wider sole of the Honma TW-X irons. Thanks.
  13. Seems like replacing irons is one of the harder things to do but I always buy new irons and end up going back to my old set. I suppose I don't give the new ones enough time. How long do you give new irons a chance?
  14. Compare a compact Titleist 910F 3 Wood with a Powerbilt Citation persimmon 4 wood. I used a version of this 4 wood for a few years and loved it. It's like the perfect size, I believe the new Honma TR21 fairway woods are very compact.
  15. Tempted to add a 7 wood. Maybe I'll find a cheap but good used one and experiment.
  16. Noticed a resurgence of the 7 wood both on tour and among my golf buddies. Still using a 21* hybrid matched with a 17* 4 wood.
