Forum Thread of the Day: “Best players iron on the market now?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from drvrwdge and delves into the subject of 2019 players irons. Drvrwdge asks fellow members which players iron they rate as the best of this year, with Srixon’s Z785 proving to be very popular amongst WRXers.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • swoooshlt: “I’m nowhere near the player I once was, but the Z785 is giving back some of that confidence……, and the feel is BRILLIANT!”
  • KC13: “MP-20 MMC all day.”
  • hypergolf: “I tried all the new iron releases as I am in the market to replace my Mizuno MP60s (TT DG S300). After hours of search, different shaft and head combinations I am going to go with Titleist T100 with Project X 6.0. Historically I never liked Titleist irons and was always a Mizuno iron player, but this year the feel and performance in T100 won me over…”
  • dalillama47: “Z785’s are my vote. Yes, I do play them. I can play anything I want. Between feel, forgiveness and the way they go through the turf, all a tough combo to beat. I’m not saying they are the best, but hard to believe there is anything much better.”

Forum Thread of the Day: “Best value for a used driver?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from rkodavey who is on the hunt for a new driver. With a budget of $200, Rkodavey is looking for a used driver from the last three or four years, and our members have been sharing their advice on where his money should go in our forums.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • gvogel: “So, so many to choose from. I would start with a Ping G400.”
  • Hertsjoatmon: “There is probably a best value in each price bracket. I found the great big bertha to be good value when I started to take golf more seriously and picked one up for a 100 about 2 years back. Plus as it’s adjustable, it’s easy to pick up extra weights and shafts to experiment with. I recently upgraded to the g400 max a few weeks ago for 200 (new) as it’s generally regarded as one of the most forgiving drivers ever made. I’ve yet to mess with the settings yet but have a heavier weight on order so that I can shorten it an inch.”
  • propredicr: “2016 TM M2. Just went through driver fitting on Trackman. Tried M5, M6, TS3, Epic Flash. M2 same shaft, just as long as M6, slightly longer than M5. Epic was next and disappointingly; the TS3 was a short knocker. Balls speeds on the newer heads were slightly higher, with slower swing speeds compared with M2. Although, distance between the M2 and M6 was negligible. Accuracy was roughly the same across the board. Bad swing=bad ball. Feel is subjective, but, like the feel of the M2, best. Guess I’ll stick with it until the head caves in.”
  • fsusmith: “Cobra LTD Pro with a bimatrix tour prototype shaft.”

Forum Thread of the Day: “Main reason to play blades?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from randywall and delves into discovering why those who play blades choose to do so. With many WRXers currently playing blades, our members explain just what they find advantageous about blade irons, with a variety of reasons mentioned in the thread.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • MadGolfer76: “For me, they are just more maneuverable. Better distance control too.”
  • RobotDoctor: “I game a set of ’99 Ben Hogan Apex blades (3-PW). Not only do these blades look outstanding, but they are relatively easy to hit. These are definitely not game improvement clubs but are not clubs reserved for a tour quality swing. I prefer blades because of great feel and the ability to better control the shape and trajectory of shots. The ’99 Ben Hogan Apex blades are among the best blades I have ever played, and I have gamed a lot of different blades from several manufacturers.”
  • GolfManCollin: “The feel. Many have said that if more people played blades there would be a lot more good ball strikers.”
  • mizuno player: “For me a few reasons. They spin rate is where I need it. I don’t always release the club. The smaller size of blade helps that. Less offset helps with my big left miss. I will be buying the new MP20 MMC. See how that goes.”
  • Redjeep83: “Blades have a nice clean look and turf interaction, pretty consistent between different blades. It’s the old saying a blade is a blade, they aren’t really that different. I haven’t played a blade set for years, and I kind of want to go back, but I’ve been spoiled by players irons, so it’s been a hard choice to switch. I don’t want to lose distance and I think I probably would overall. I have a 6 iron blade in my bag that I hit on the range every once in a while with my other clubs and I find that I tend to gravitate back towards my players 6 iron instead because it gives a little more confidence and stronger flight.”
  • Warrior42111: “For the average Joe, blades are like a supermodel; fun to look at, but you have no chance in real life.”
