Ping G700 v.s. Callaway CF16

I have been playing the G700, but they are boring as he... I need some excitement in my life. The G700 around the greens just doesn't exist. So I put the old reliable CF 16's back in the bag and see what happens. You know I may very well come crawling back to the G700, but I need some touch near the greens that I can feel. I can only push my wedge so far, it needs some help with the shot game duties.

Are you talking about the entire set and when you say cf16’s are you talking apex’s?  That is quite a jump and I imagine would get you excited 😂.  I had a set of apex for a little bit and never could get used to them.  I had shafts that were not a good fit also which hurt me even more with them.  But the heads are so short that I had a hard time being really confident.  Now I would probably like the, better but at the time I was not ready for them.  I got some i500’s (a lot of wrx’rs are not fans but I love them) and they were a perfect compromise.  If you like the look of g700’s but want some more excitement the i500’s might get ya going!

Played yesterday and the G700's are going back in. Around the greens the CF16's are superior, but long irons, the G700 wins the battle. I guess I need to look into some 710 irons. Maybe 725 soon?

I went from G700 to PXG 0211 ... not as many flyers, PW and GW work well for pitches and chips.

Another twist in the story; I am putting the Cobra F9 back in for aw to 8 iron. The Cobra are very forgiving, but not quite the short game of the CF16. I went this route because the Cobra are closer in design to the G700. I really like the better accuracy of the Cobras in the shorter irons, they play more consistent. The G700's heads are enormous in the short irons.

The Cobra F9's really came through today, and did great with them. So glad to have them back in the bag. Today was a rough day as it was chilly and windy as well. Just not my day. Have a bad out to in swing that was all over the place. I still shot a somewhat decent score, 91, but missed some real easy putts, that was finally cured with left hand low for short putts. Frustration level went through the roof as the 2 golfers ahead of me acted like they never played before. Finally passed them and it was better until the out to in got worse. Extra clothing??? I'm going with that!

Always looking for the pot of gold that doesn't exist, imagine that!! I will be looking at the Ping G425 when they are available. I have found that hollow body irons really lack around the greens. The Cobra F9's are very good, and the 9 iron is money for me. The F9's have set the standard for me, and I get great deals through Global Golf.

I mixed G700 5-7 iron and F9 6-aw to get what I wanted. Shot 39, so I am very happy with this decision. For some reason I do not like the feel of the G700 below 7 iron. But F9 above 8 doesn't work as easily as the G700, it is a beast for length.
