I just break out my old school buddies..... and I am happy.  

Got my custom order in yesterday. I did 4-PW with C Taper limited black in 125g S+ straight in. Unfortunately the only X stiff on the fitting cart was X100 so I had to take a guess and use the MP20 he

They never left

I’ve had some time with mine now and can truly say they are fantastic irons. The feel/sound and performance is exceptional. Not a steel shaft player any longer so the re-build is currently underway. First observation the bore thru design is purely cosmetic they are taper tips. I’m relieved to say the shafts pulled very easily with low heat and without damaging the sole pin plugs what so ever. First huddle successfully navigated! Waiting on a set of Fujikura Pro IP 95i shafts to be delivered. I’m really excited about this setup and they should be in the bag for a while. BB

Are the Fuji 115’s the Pro Tour model? I was torn between those and the Pro IP 95’s. The Tours don’t offer IP so that solved that vanity problem. I’ve always found the heavier (thicker) the graphite shafts theres significant loss in feel. I compensate by building them really well with tungsten rubber sole weights and GP Plus 4 grips. Just a way to fool the brain and add a few grams back to the overall build. It’s worked out super well for me plus I benefit from superior feel (my opinion) of a sub 100gr graphite shaft.

I don’t see the progression, these irons are totally different. I’ve never been a fan of blending sets unless they where designed to flow, ie. Cobra etc.

They are beuatiful and I am sure awesome in the right hands. Wilson Golf has a way with irons. BUT I do not understand how a company that makes the best baseball and softball bats and also owes Louisville Slugger cant make woods to round out their line. It is ridiculous. Not sure they have had a good driver since they stopped making them out of wood.

I don't know, the new D7 has some fans. I'd try it but I haven't had the itch to try a different driver since I put my G400 in the bag.

Not to hijack the thread. Another day of social distancing....

D7 is quite good. I’m not sure a driver out there sounds any better than the D7. I have the 9 degree, which has the low-spin internal weight placement.

Stock build is purposely light with a light grip and a quality Helium 59g shaft. Head is in the 192-194g range. I think there is a substantial group out there who benefits from that lighter build and may not know it. It is very well-balanced. I need a little more weight. It is lighter like the Callaway Rogue. I have hammered some drives with it but more wandering contact vs an old Ping G30 I use as a control driver. It has a 75g Oban shaft in it. Seems like 65-75g is where I make most consistent contact.

Easy to retool with a different shaft. Not as easy to hotmelt but maybe there’s a way. It has no port or removable weight. That’s really the only issue: Can I get 10g of weight in the head? Would take a lot of lead tape. Grabbed it new for $199.

It has surprised a few reviewers:

I think they've been pretty well-reviewed overall since their seasons of the driver design show on Golf Channel. I've not tried to find a new driver recently so haven't gotten around to testing any but I'd give them some swings once I'm on the hunt.
