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,

+4.2 4&5 790's 6-PW are 760's, all with PX LZ 6.0 HS1x.   The absolute best player I know plays 760's. Think he a +5 or +6. Last time I looked he was ranked in the top 150 with WAGR,he was t

0.7 handicap. Srixon z785 3-pw with UST mamiya prototype 110 f5 X graphite shafts. Best shafts I've ever played, cant begin to rave how much more consistent, lower spin, and stable they feel compared to other steel shafts I've used. Expensive, but well worth it for my 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.
