TS3 vs SIM vs Mavrik – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing drivers. WRXer ‘2ndCut16’ is on the hunt for a new driver and asks members for their views on the TS3, SIM and Mavrik drivers. Our members share their preference and why in our forum.

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.

  • Titleistjunkie1127: “SIM all the way. I’ve always been a Titleist guy, but the SIM is a great looking driver and feels even better then it looks.”
  • Drivingrangehero: “It’s a toss-up for me between the Maverik and the TS3. At the same setting of 9 degrees, the Maverik had less spin by 300 RPM, but the Titleist launched slightly higher for me. I hit the Titleist with the Tensei blue and the Callaway with the Rogue 130msi. That may account for the higher launch and spin with the Titleist, so it really depends what would work for you. Had I dropped the loft to 8° On the Titleist, then I would have been getting optimum numbers for me. I liked both shafts, so it’s a toss-up. Either way, you end up with a great driver. The Sim is hard to turn over (draw) it’s the most fade based driver I’ve ever hit. I play a slight draw and do not attempt to fade the ball that often. With the SIM, I could only hit fades. They were easy to hit, but a fade just doesn’t fit my eye, and my set up feels weird, so I had dispersion problems with it. My experience anyways!”
  • slord: “It was SIM for me. TS2 was maybe the closest second and felt really nice, but didn’t perform quite as well. Mavrik I did not like, both regular and sub-zero. I only could stand to hit maybe 5 shots combined before I took them off the list. SIM has just been so dang good.”
  • hammergolf: “Sim for me has been GREAT! My miss is high toe with a slightly closed face. Twist face for me has definitely helped. It’s made my bad shot with other clubs much more playable. As a bonus, I hit it a little further too.”
  • blitzgolf: “TS3 best Titleist driver I’ve had in the last 5-6 years and I get the new one every time. Would also take the accuracy fitting you had and prefer playing out of the fairways.”

When to buy irons such as Miura? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing Miura irons. WRXer ‘Twists’ has recently picked up golf, and asks members if the brand’s clubs “require a certain skill-level to play them well? (Or well enough not to slow down the game or get frustrated…)”. And our members have been having their say.

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.

  • Nessism: “There is nothing wrong with owning more than one set. Use your full on GI set for everyday play/practice and get the Miura’s to grow into and/or play just because. The type of iron one plays isn’t super important so long as the clubs fit them physically in terms of length and overall weight. The PP-9003 are my suggestion. They are midsized and offer some real help in terms of forgiveness, but they are Miura’s through and through with impeccable build quality and beauty. This model has been discontinued, so now is the time to grab them. Find yourself a clubmaker when you are ready and have them built up to your liking. I’ve got a set and count it as one of my better purchases.”
  • LeoLeo99: “Spotted my first ever sighting of Miura irons out in the wild last week. They were a cavity back model. Looked pretty nice. You can go with Miura or buy an older classic set and see if that type of iron appeals to you and your game. The older Hogan, Wilson, MacGregor, RAM, and other makes blades are plentiful and cheap in the used club market on eBay.”
  • theebdk: “Have you looked at the Miura IC-601? I am going for a fitting soon and will try these plus a few others. Looks like a blade but it is advertised as a game improvement iron. Be aware it is cast, has a thick top line and plenty of offset. I saw it in person at my fitter but have not tried it yet.”
  • Uncut: “Depends on your goals and how athletic you are. If you are the type that will put the time in required to improve your ball striking, then go for it. Do you have a decent swing with decent ball striking already when it comes to your irons? If you’ve got a reasonable starting point, then I say go for it. Set your expectations and work towards the goal. I went from playing some old cast Nike CCi irons to Srixon z585 to forged Miura TC-201. Not a blade, but still was a little intimidating for someone that routinely shoots in the low and mid-90s. I went from mild GI cavity back irons to an iron that is a players “tour cavity” back that requires some game. My biggest complaint with full GI irons is that you can’t hold firm greens as well (due to lack of spin), and less feeling of control. Distance is always good with GI irons, but sometimes you want a little more feel and control and ability to shape a creative shot. I have been playing tennis for about five years seriously, and I quickly advanced to the point where I needed a more players racquet with more “feel”. You can only go so far with a 110 sq inch racquet if you advance beyond a certain point and want to start learning new skills. I think golf is that way. Life is short, play the irons you want and put in the work you need to gel with them. It’s going to be frustrating at first, but expect it to possibly take years of work to game them to their full potential.”

What GolfWRXers are saying about replacing a 4-iron with a utility iron

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing utility irons after WRXer ‘jas904’ revealed he’s thinking about switching out his 4-iron. ‘Jas904’ asks for the thoughts of his fellow members as well as recommendations for the best utility irons currently on the market, and WRXers have been responding.

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.

  • BiggiE427: “I’ve been gaming the cobra king utility with rogue Aldila shaft, and I have loved it. Great forgiveness, flight and feel for me. Easy to hit different shots as well. Currently awaiting a Mizzy hmb that I hit just as well if not better.”
  • Chuck905: “I’d recommend the Srixon if you can get past the looks and take on the forgiveness. I’m currently on the ping G410 crossover; I like the stinger flight, but it’s not as good feeling nor forgiving as my Srixon.”
  • Myherorbobhope: “Sub70 is worth a look if you are on a budget. Great club.”
  • gripandrip: “I have a 20 deg U45 that stays in the closet. While I like the feel and performance of the head, I’ve never truly gotten along with the stock Nippon shaft. I prefer my Z745 3 iron with the SF i95S. I’ve been meaning to change out the shaft, just haven’t gotten to it. It is a little longer than my 3 iron, so I can’t decide if I should match the length and swing weight of the 3 iron or something else. Hence the inaction. I would say the driving irons are good clubs if you are looking for a hybrid that is an “iron”, but I believe you need to find the right shaft.”
  • PowerCobra98: “X Forged UT…Recoil Shaft…Love it.”
