Question without reading through the whole thread...

 

Anyone ordered a short set of clubs with just the lofts, not numbered?  Something like a 56*, 50*, 9-7-5 irons?  I was just thinking it'd be fun to have a sweet little set of blades for old-school carry duties.

Lil tease of my set. Took a long time to get, but we’ll worth the wait. Like nothing I’ve ever played and instantly made my Mizzys obsolete. 

 

Incredibly surprised at my new found ability to hit low nippers with this  NCW 58 degree. Unreal.

Many . . . This is a thread worth reading, if not to gaze at the images.

I drooled over NCW images for a long time, and after a lot of planning and emailing got these in recently.

I went with 6* loft gaps from 23-47 (essentially 1.5 club steps) and Patrick helped advise on length/lie according to my specs. I was looking for something between my Miura Baby Blades and a Titleist CB and think they came out great and look forward to getting them dirty. Engraving wise I was going for a family heirloom set to pass onto my son or daughter...probably son 🙂 The sole is our family name, a la older Macgregor style, and the muscle are family nicknames; Hosel DW for Don White and the lofts; Modus 120S and Tour G grips.

Filthy. There should be laws against things like that...😍😍🤩🤩

 

I like the way you mixed different muscle backs into the set. "Bobbi" and "Jie Jie" are nice, but I really love the muscle pad on "Sebito" and "Billy Charles".

Patience my friend. I ordered last April (2020) and as of mid April (2021) they were in Don’s hands. 
 

It’s like waiting for Christmas, the anticipation is part of the fun!

Have you been in contact with Patrick and Ari? I was told 2-3 weeks a month ago but I also have a pretty standard buildout (combo set - Small CB + Machine Milled blades) so hopefully it'll be soon? If its another 6 months out that's going to be pretty disappointing as it'll be in the middle of winter but oh well

It’s been a couple months but I’m not in a hurry either. Between work, life, and constant rain, I won’t be playing this year.

I'm sure this has already been answered in the thread, but haven't had a chance to review fully, so apologies if this is duplicative. 

 

These clubs look amazing to me, and my Apex Pros (early version) are beginning to show signs of wear. I've been toying around with idea of new clubs and have always been incredibly impressed by NWC. However, would love the feedback of someone who's gone from a club like the Apex Pro to a handmade, forged iron. The Apex Pro aren't exactly shovels, but they're certainly more "tricked up" than a club as pure as these. For reference, I'm a low single digit handicap who has a good, but not great iron game, so my concern is I'm not good enough to play these. 

 

Based on my research, sounds like NWC has plenty of options to design clubs right for your game, but would still appreciate any anecdotes for those who've made the transition and how their game has trended since the change. Would also appreciate any details on how you built the club (e.g., lower CG, etc.) to fit your good, but not superior ball striking.  

 

Lastly, I know a combo set is an option, which may solve for some of this, but the ego in me would love to go muscle-back throughout because it feels more true to art of NWC.

Ari, Patrick, and Don absolutely knocked it out of the park with these. 4-6 CB and 7-G MB with Mitsubishi MMT 125TX and Lampkin ST+2 Calibrate grips. I was a bit concerned with going back to traditional lofts AND blades but so far distances have been pretty close vs my previous gamers (Cobra Forged Tec Black). The feeling when struck well is just so damn pure its hard to explain and the turf interaction with the DW grind is remarkable. I feel like it can finally take a divot again

Beautiful doesn't even begin to describe those. I particularly love that muscle pad on the blades.

This thread. Woof. After I view it, I always want to jump on the phone with them. But then I remember that I'm a 12 and have no business playing irons like this (not a great iron striker and I need all the help I can get to get distance and trajectory).
