Only changes that stuck this year were F9 Tour fairway woods, still loving them. I held off to take a peek at the MP20, but not doing blades again, and none of the others will look as good as 919T at

Got lucky , skipped out early, 29 holes in today , these Mavrik pro irons are really good, really liking them more each round.

Can't go wrong with mizzy irons.

Yeah that's a ton of weight to add back there. SHould have sent it to me for hotmelt ;-)

This is a wonderful thread. So much testing and feedback. I am curious on the elevate shafts. Was contemplating a Cobra SZ 4 iron as a DI with the Elevate shaft. You seem to like them. Are you normally a low spin iron player?

The Mavrik Pro irons came in this week, with elevate 105s shafts, this is just a good fit for me all around.

first day out started double, bogey, shot 75, then hit some great iron shots in a 2 man yesterday.

i am a lower spin guy, just been hitting the players irons with heavier shafts too low, not enough spin. I don’t hit it long.

the stronger lofts paired with a higher launching shaft seems a good combo, stopped the ball much quicker on the greens.

the elevate shafts are awesome, have the 105 in Mavrik, tour version in my 737v. They feel fantastic, the 105 offers a little higher launch, but no ballooning at all.

My HMP set with modus 105 shipped out yesterday (felt uneasy not having a set of Mizuno irons in the house). I will be testing head to head against Mavrik for my GI set. They will need to be good to beat the Mavrik Pro out.

this is my first callaway iron since X14 pro, years back. They feel nice for not being forged, and the biggest key, distance seems very consistent.

I have similar excellent tastes in irons as I have a set of the 919 Tours with the LZ and have been playing the MP 20 MMCs for 5 months or so. The Modus 120s are great but I am curious about the 100-105 gram shafts as I play 1/2 inch over. Thanks for the feedback. I was contemplating a Cobra SZ 4 iron as a 19 degree driving iron. The Elevate is in the frame. Will be interested to see your results with the HMB and Modus. Should be a good combo.

It’s been almost two weeks and no updates? What’s the iron situation?

Prefer the Mavrik Pro with elevate 105. I think they feel better, just hitting the Mavrik well, good distance control, like the shafts.

No, frustrated about the color I wanted not releasing, also worried on some reviews, but would try if the released gray and blue in wide.

i got my puma caged of Amazon for $70-$80-$90 respectively 2 disc, one lace, love them, not even wearing roshe Tour, which has been my shoe.

Never tried Adidas golf shoes.

i really like the puma caged, and not a puma guy, first pair, just fit right, 1/2 size down from RGT, didn’t even need the wide.

i have 2 pair of True OG that I like and a pair of air zoom victory pro that I like.

Was +3 through 4 last night, played the last 14 at 1 under for 72, love these irons. I was never consistent enough working the ball anyway, just hit em straight.

top of bag back to what it was with GBB and F9 tours . I do go back and forth between a 20• hybrid and a 7w, depending on wind and course.

put the Toulon in recently., putting great.

Tough track on the books for this morning, can’t wait to get out there.

Great round. Way too keep it together! It easily could’ve got ugly.

Such a basket case.....

I have a poor stretch that involved having the shanks, and felt like I forgot how to play, so sold irons, bought others, that doesn’t solve anything.

i am a feel player, so can get lost a bit when things go sideways, not always sure how to fix it. I have been hitting the ball better, but having issues with turf interaction with wider soles now.

i put the 737v back in yesterday, and all seems back to normal

Correct, but got in my head, even knowing it was a swing flaw. I finally noticed the right elbow was flying all over the place, but is was only iron play , driver and short game have been good this year.

i put them back for Wednesday night, and it was like love all over again, hit way more greens, but of course made nothing on the green, subtle reminder it does not all come together as much as I would like.

i am sticking with my current set up for the season, get comfortable, know if I am swinging solid, everything does what I need.

Shocker, it’s not the arrow, yet again.

I went back to the Mavrik Pro, playing pretty well now. I finished 9th in my first Club Championship last weekend, and that was playing the par 5’s at +6 for the weekend.

i really like these irons after getting used to them, elevate shafts are great.

mavrik 7w and Odyssey SL Rossie are for sale now, can’t stop hitting the 7w left, so hybrid back in, top of bag back to what it was last year.

The one thing that has been really good lately is the putter, had 12 putts on from 9 last night for 34, but shot 40 on back, then 27 putts tonight and a 71. The Portland is maybe my favorite putter ever, so reached out and have a black custom that was built yesterday and shipping out tomorrow.

I almost hope the new JPX coming out look terrible, tired of buying irons....lol

Iron update?

Yes, just came in today.921F 6-G (ordered GW separate, en route). LZ blackout with Lamkin crossline. GBB with Ventus black just has not been beat, F9 Tour fairways same.  I dumped the 7w for a F9 4H, absolutely love it. I was tracking my success rate with 5i, just not very good, did a custom order for a F9 5H with smoke hybrid shaft, only missed one green with it so far, maybe the best move I have made recently to actually improve scoring. I also got a satin black Toulon Portland garage, amazing putter. I ordered the 921 blind, can’t wait to hit them today.

That putter is beautiful!  Great shape as well.  I really enjoyed my Las Vegas, but felt the head shape was a little too big for me.  I might have to give the Portland a go.
