  1. Super forgiving with minimal offset has to be 921 hot metal pro. 921 forged has thinner sole but to me it’s not the level of GI that it seems you’re looking for.
  2. I also went from std Mavrik to LS and it’s definitely worth it. I’ll remind the OP that Callaway has the 50% trade in bonus. Just sayin... you
  3. Epic Max LS with your favorite shaft is the answer.
  4. I go 16.5/4W then g425 7W set at 21.5 which is the best out there IMHO due to adjustability, then g425 5 hybrid set at 25* and g425 6 hybrid set at 29*. I have never been a ping fan but with their adjustability for flat settings and multiple lofts it’s sooo easy to get your gaps right and that’s critical to play even mediocre golf like I do. Here are carry numbers. 4w - 195 7W - 185 5H - 175 6H - 165
  5. Don’t know how easy it will be to find in a 7W, but the tour edge exotics E8 E9 E10 models all fit the bill. The beta titanium versions are the bomb and smaller than the steel models. There are a couple on the bay. Other option is the exotics CB5 model.
  6. I was a low ball hitter for 15 years until I took some lessons this year with the goal of hitting every club higher. The cause of low shots for me was a combo of 3 things: swing plane was too flat, closed club face throughout the swing, and hands too far forward at impact relative to each club. Still working on it but only took about 4 lessons to now be hitting everything higher AND longer. Launch is my friend.
  7. Just know that nothing will be an adequate replacement for XHot pro hybrids. You need to search for those and reload. For the fitting I recommend Ifit Golf in Rancho Cordova. They are a certified Callaway fitting center and they just upgraded their fitting bay with the newest tech on the market. I would go with Matt or Buck for the fitting session.
  8. Seems like a good deal to me, but I’m not a fan of the studio style insert.
  9. Volley spin milled ‘09 and Mack Daddy 4
  10. You’re right about the true question from the OP. You’re also right about the T200s. Other replies were not in the ballpark.
  11. Unfortunately for the OP, you’re getting typical golfwrx answers naming players’ irons when asked for GI. OP you’ve got the answer that it doesn’t exist. You can find thinner choices within the GI group though.
  12. Definitely Tour Edge for fwys. They are low profile so easy to launch. In the meantime while you’re searching pick up an Exotics XCG5 fwy for about $60 to hold you over. They are the best ever made and way ahead of their time in technology. It’s an all titanium head with a cup face. According to tour edge tests at the time (2013) the CT is 250!!! Low profile so super easy to launch off the deck.
  13. The size difference is part of the better forgiveness. The great part is that the offset is almost identical. Congrats on the find. 🏌
  14. Go for the HMPs. I’ve owned 919F and 919HMP and currently own and game 921HMP. For me the HMP is definitely more forgiving and the 921 was an improvement over the 919HMP in terms of feel. This third gen chromoly is fantastic, mostly from improved feel but also durability too. IMHO you should grab that set and run. GLWS
  15. I spent an hour today at golf galaxy figuring out the stock weights, you’re right 10g, and how much more each club needed to get to D1, my preferred swing weight. The 5W, 7W and 5h all need the 14g weight and an additional 3.5g of lead tape, and the 6H needs an additional 6g of tape! Nobody sells anything heavier than 14g weights so I’m still gonna have lead tape on my new clubs. Ping should not be using counter balance shafts with these light club heads.
  16. I bought everything new from an authorized retailer. I’ll have to buy aftermarket weights as it’s much cheaper than a new shaft. For now it’s lead tape city on my brand new clubs.
  17. In March I purchased a g425 5H and it felt a tad light but performed well. So this month I bought the 5w and 7w with stock Alta CB shafts without testing and the 5w felt awful first time on the course. Turns out the 5w was only C6! To make it worse the ping shaft offerings are horrible for reg flex mid-high launch I need. Each now has 6 grams of lead tape to get to D0.
  18. +1 for the tour B RX. Surprisingly soft but low spin with plenty of green side sauce. It is the best of both worlds ball. I’m switching to the RXS this season cuz I prefer the softer feel in short game, but for OPs description RX is the ball he’s looking for.
  19. My 6H came in today which is 6 weeks and 4 days from order. Luckily they had a 5 wood in stock at the shop I ordered from so picking them both up tomorrow.
  20. I went with a 919 forged gap wedge. I’ve upgraded to 921 hot metal pros but still use the 919 forged gap. Best gw I’ve ever gamed. After gw I use 55* & 60* Callaway MD4 wedges.
  21. Excellent Oakley flak jacket sunglasses, new prizm field lenses only worn 3 times, new ear socks and nose pads installed same time as lenses. Bought everything to upgrade my frame and found out I need prescription glasses. My loss is your gain. Glasses only for $125/obro with Oakley vault hard case for $145
