Nickent Ironwood with Fuji904HB


Shibumi

Recommended Posts

Anybody Played This Combo?
Currently play a Sonartec MD 19* with an NV85 Stiff hybrid shaft. Like the ball flight alot, but don't particularly like the look of the Sonartec. Also, don't think that I get great distance (as opposed to their fairway woods).



Thinking about moving to the Nickent Ironwood with a Fuji 904HB X-Stiff shaft. Don't want trajectory to increase vs. the Sonartec. Not sure how the clubheads and shafts compare in terms of launch angle. Assuming that Nickent/904HB might launch slightly higher. So wondering if should go 18.5* or maybe even 17*.



Anyone thoughts on loft or on this combination in general? If there's not a lot of love for it, may have to wait and take a look at the forthcoming Titleist 585H.

I play the tour issue nickent head with a 904HB stiff shaft in 20*. It usually serves me well, especially off the tee. The trajectory is nice and boring and the distance is excellent. The 904 is a very good shaft. however, for me, my old retail nickent head works better as a hack stick, and that is what I carry the club for. The steel shaft works better for me out of the rough and fairway. I think that the heavier overal club weight is something that just works for me. I feel that the steel shaft makes me swing the club more like an iron, and is how I usally get the best results.

 

So as much as I am thinking of moving to a steel shaft, I will say that the nickent head is the best hybrid head I have tried and the 904HB is an excellent, if not the best, choice is you are looking for a graphite shafted hybird. This combo has gotten lots of love for the last year on various sites.

These Nickent ironwoods have made a name for themselves the past two years. I noticed that Furyk is still carrying one as noted in the latest Golf Digest WITB and they were the #1 hybrid on the Nationwide Tour for a while if they aren't still. Seems like I saw one or two in the WITB pics of this weeks' PGA tourney too.

 

I love my 24* with the stock stiff shaft. My 17* degree is on a big brown truck right now in transit to my house. Can't wait to hit it tomorrow. I've pulled all of my FW out of the bag and I am going strictly with hybrids in their place. I never was a great ball striker with fairway woods.

 

The best thing about the 3DX Ironwoods is the price. They are nice a cheap, especially if you find one used on Ebay. I may pick up a 6 iron replacement later on this Fall.

Accuflex,

 

 

 

Thanks for your comment. I tend to be somewhat of a high ball hitter. That's one of the things that I like about the Sonartec/NV85 combination (nice boring trajectory). I also read that the Fuji 904HB is supposed to have a Mid/High kickpoint.

 

 

 

My question is who is the Accuflex Icon HL targeted at? I'm assuming that the HL stands for high launch, so don't know if it would work well for me. If this is a popular shaft on the Nationwide Tour, I'm assuming that many of the tour players are wanting a higher launch angle, even though they undoubtedly have high swing speeds. If I play a 19* in the Sonartec, would I need to take my loft down with this kind of shaft to 17*, for example.

 

 

 

Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks.
