Ill bite... went to P770 TMs. I was tired of people looking at my irons funny like your irons are made by the same company that makes the crappy range balls. I know I should not care... The srixons where a great club. Much better than the 900 forged for me.

...and this is why I love and hate these forums at the same time! I too have had the 765's for about a year and half now. Looking at other stuff for the same reasons listed above (brand vanity, rough/turf interaction). I have also basically narrowed it down to the 2 sets of irons already mentioned: the P770 and the X Forged 2018. I currently play the 765's 5-9i, with a 23* U65 (4i) and the RTX-3 46* (PW). I am definitely a proponent of a blended set.

 

It's pretty obvious the X Forged 2018 can be blended much the same, and they have raw wedges in the MD4's, which is pretty much a requirement for me. I have never really taken a liking to Callaway clubs though. I have an Apex hybrid now, which is great. Other than that, nothing.

 

To those of you who went P770 - did you blend the set? If so, how?

 

Also - I am definitely not getting rid of the Srixon's (backups!).

I don't play the Srixon's... but I've often thought about getting some.. Having said that...I must be cut from a different cloth than most of you. Several mentioned "brand recognition" or "people looking at my clubs funny". I would actually prefer to play something different than everyone else. I dislike being like everyone else...

The 585 / 785 in a couple weeks!

 

THIS is why I might cancel my order for the I500's !!

 

No! I need your feedback on i500. kinda considering it for myself as replacement.

 

 

interesting to see how others replacement overlap with my other consideration as well: P770 and X forged.

 

somehow, I cannot like the look of Mizuno even though everyone loves it

Yeah I don't get this at all. Play your game. I wear two rain gloves all the time because my hands are terribly sweaty - I don't care if people think I'm weird.

 

It's also funny because I ASPIRE to play the 565/765. But I guess that is what happens when you're still gaming Mizunos from 2005.

Went from 765 to Miura baby blades.

 

A very nice transition if you want to try something a bit more aggressive is some 965 or 945s. Also can't go wrong with the new MP18 or P-730.

 

I'm very happy having made the transition to blades. Only downside is I lost a bit of distance due to going to traditional lofts and not getting any extra help... but love the consistency.

Thinking of replacing 765s with COBRA Forged Tec Black.

Or maybe not....

Got to be honest, I don't see what I can improve by changing my 565/765 combo

 

I don't need much more length, I am happy with the distances I hit them, and I can't see how another set of irons will make me much straighter?

 

Will have to hit the new models to see how they do, but for the moment I love the 565/765!

I have been pondering a switch to a hollow head design (P790 or i500) mostly because I would like to get a bit higher flight (which these hollow heads claim to deliver). especially on slightly thin hits (I find the 565 flight pretty low - but with good spin - on thin side mishits).

 

Anyone compare Z565 versus the hollow heads?

P790. Not looking back. Could not get along with V sole. It may work for somebody else, just not for me.
