What's your combo set?

Recommended Posts

If you play a combo set, what are you playing?

 

I'm more interested in hearing/learning about a setup like using T200s in long irons and then T100Ss in mid and short irons. But if you're using hybrids in there, please feel free to share.

 

Out of a set of 718 AP1s, where the 4 and 5 irons are constructed differently from the other irons anyway, I changed the shafts to Recoils on those two irons. I kept 6-W stock.

 

For my next set of irons - whether I buy them this afternoon or in a year - I think I want to do something similar and want to hear what's working for you. Blending sets... using graphite in the longer irons... etc.

 

As my ball striking has significantly improved, I'm even considering blending across three different types of irons to transition into my wedges (SM7s). Anyone going across three different "series" in their irons? I've seen some places selling pre-configured irons sets, but no one is doing something like 4,5 in X; 6,7,8 in Y; and 9,P,W in Z?

Im currently using an Apex 21 combo set.

 

I have the 4-7s with the Apex 21 and the 8-AW as the Pro's.  All shafted with the MMT 95 stiff shafts and I love them.  I'm actually looking for another set to keep as a backup because I love them so much.

 

I couldn't be happier with the Apex's and I've actually never played Callaway irons before.

I built a very nice combo set with KZG CB's 3-6 and KZG blades 7-PW with the CB's bent 1* to match the blades. Problem was I liked the blades too much. 🤣

 

But I could see another combo set but go from 6-PW blade like P7MB with P770 5 and 6 maybe?

 

<edit> I have 80g graphite shafts in all my irons.

It looks like the t100s and t200 are meant to be blended, however I know a few Golf Pros who have P-4i T100 and 4i and 2i in T200. They basically ignore the number. 

 

My favorite blended set ever was titleist CB(P-7)/AP2 (6-3). Similiar now would be CB p-7 / t100 6-4. I have hit both that woukd be an awesome set if you get your gaps correct. Could even throw in a 4i or 2i T200 (new T200 is a rocket launcher)

 

Full set of zx7s for me right now just wanted to jump in. I looked at combis for a long time.

I think combo sets just make sense for those of us with "average speed."  Using GI mid-irons keeps my gaps at 10-12 yards, with good height, down through the 5 iron. 

 

My current set uses Adams CB3 5 and 6 irons, and CB1 7-GW.  The CB3's are so easy to hit, I plan to try putting the 4 iron head on a lighter graphite shaft to see if I can maintain good height and distance gapping down through the 4 iron, rather than going to a hybrid in that spot.  

 

I have an older, very similar set but with 3 different "series" of irons in the combo -- Pro Black MB short irons, CB1 mid irons, and CB3 long irons.  I'd probably still be playing these if they weren't pretty much worn out. 

 

I also have a set of the chrome Titleist 735CM's, which are a really beautiful "factory" combo set.

U510 1 iron, T200 3 iron, T100S 4-PW.

 

I had 3-PW T100's and found I didn't use my 3 iron much for distance, so I figured I'd ignore the gapping and just get another long iron - almost a driving iron. I think it works well but I haven't had the chance to use it on course yet thanks to hand surgery last month. I've played 9 holes since and didn't anything longer than a 5 iron (and driver).

 

The combo gives me 4 degrees between the 1 and 3 irons, and only 2 between the 3 and 4 but with a bit more speed off the face. I don't really think of it as a straight combination, but a slightly different tool to use.

You can combo anything. 5-7 P790, 8-W P770 CB. Matching shafts, 790s bent 2 weaker. I also will blend 5/6 790 with 7-W Miuras when I'm not feeling it to go full 5-W that day. 

 

I like the added ball speed on meh hits above 160y shots. If on my game the CB's are lovely and feel better however the toe-y 6 iron that carried the front bunker by 3 yards yesterday is one of the moments where I appreciate the 790.

 

The game is hard enough as is.

So when I originally got fitted for my MP-20s I was playing 4-5i in the MCC and 6-P in the blade. I have always played blades and at the time of my fitting was hesitant to even have a 5 iron in the MCC as my eye was so used to the blade. Since then I have now replaced my 6,7 & 8 iron with the MCC and am only playing the PW and 9i in the blade. Super weird for me as a lifelong blade player, but something about the MP-20 MCC just does it for me now that im used to the look. So to answer the original question clearly I am playing the MP-20 blade PW & 9i and the MP-20 MCC in 8i-4i. I know thats a weird combo set, but its what ive found works best for me.

I'm Mizuno MP-20 also. My original set was 5-6 HMB, 7-9 MMC and P MB. I've now gone with 6 MMC and 9 MB. Great breakdown for my bag.

Currently have TM P7MC in 3-5 and P7MB in 6-PW.  This is my first combo set ever and I will say the P7MC in the long iron took some getting use to.  Last set was a full P730's.  With a full season of the combo set, i will never go back....

100% this. It took me a minute to get used to the MMCs, but now that I have (and im getting older and fatter) I dont see myself going back.

The combo configuration in the bag depends on my bones and impulse.  With that said, I am a traditional feel player so can't (for reasons I won't get into) mix a variety of clubs and expect to play good golf. 

 

Currently, I have low-end 620 MB series and 620 CB series on the high end.  My 2 iron is 718 T-MB blade like.  Titleist designed 620 MB series then purposely designed CB's to blend in with MBs, making specs relatively similar, but not exactly the same.  One difference is MB spins the ball more.  Both heads have progressive heel to toe blade lengths, only CBs are slightly longer and have a tad more offset as opposed to MBs. 

 

Here's what's big for me, I've had the 620s since late 2019, and still can't wait to play golf using them.
