I am currently around a +1 women's index which roughly translates to between a 4 and 5 men's index. I play Maltby TS1 5i - GW shafted with KBS Tour in R-flex. I like the look of a blade style iron,

currently a 7. nobody cares.

... I played with 2 Pro's from Desert Mountain in Phoenix last winter at Aguila GC. They played the tips and one was around 50 using i210's and shot in the mid 60's. The other was in his 30's using so

Low 2 but currently 3/4. Titleist 620CB&MBs 3-PW with Steelfiber i110-S plus Titleist 718 T-MB 17* 2 iron with i95-S - Da** I love this game.

... 52* - 58* wedges with Recoil 110's. My irons are a standard loft 4 iron but 5-pw are bent 1* weak. I just installed some Steelfiber 95's r-flex after playing Recoil 95 s-flex in my previous set. I have a feeling I will be gong back to Recoils but remain hopeful the i95's in r-flex are a better fit than the s-flex which just didn't not work for my swing.
