His Apex MB irons and Mack Daddy 2 Tour Grind wedges are stamped with the initials PNR (his), JKR (his wife) and WWR (his daughter). His 2013 X Forged 3 iron also gets Ryder Cup treatment with a simple “USA” stamp, while his Odyssey White Hot Pro #3 putter takes it to another level. It’s adorned with “2014 Ryder Cup” and plenty of stars, which carries over to its awesome sole.

    Would love to win these irons! Team Europe forever and always. Having never had my own brand new set if golf clubs, it would be amazing to finally own a set that no one else has had before! And with a bit of luck and lost of hardwork will finally get my handicap down.
    All the best for team Europe. Play hard, play well and above all else be magnanimous in victory!

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Bogeygolfer55 who asks WRXers for the oldest set of clubs they have played lately. The responses may surprise you, with some members going way back in time and still finding the older clubs effective.

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.

  • No_Catchy_Nickname: “1980 Ram Tour Grinds, Honma and Mizuno woods from, I think, the 80s, Ram BeCu gap wedge (don’t know the year), Ram Tom Watson Grind SW, and a TaylorMade TPA IX putter.”
  • Hatchmanss76: “1985 Titleist Tour Model Blades and Cobra Persimmon 2 and 4 woods. Low running darts off the Tee all day in strong windy conditions.”
  • tannyhoban: “Played a set of Cobra Greg Norman Signatures early this year with the autoclave stiff graphite shafts. One last fling before moving them on. Sweet set of irons.”
  • NixLix26: “Cleveland TA3’s form forged. Still a great iron set.”

WRX Spotlight: Big Max Aqua Sport 2 cart bag

Published

on

Product: Big Max Aqua Sport 2 cart bag

Pitch: From Big Max “Big Max was founded 1994 and has grown into a global market leading push cart and golf bag brand. Europe’s #1 push cart brand was launched into the U.S. market in 2014. Big Max golf bags are manufactured using the highest quality materials and workmanship. Our bags are designed to deliver the best user experience in design, form, and function.”

Our Take on the Big Max Aqua Sport 2 cart bag:

Well known for their push carts, Big Max introduced themselves to the cart bag market with their Aqua Sport 2 bag. The bag’s primary selling point is the 100% waterproof element, and with the dreary winter months now upon us, it’s a much-needed asset.

Beginning with the look of the bag, it is indeed big and sturdy as you might expect with a cart bag, yet surprisingly, still relatively lightweight and mobile. The bag is exceptionally spacious boasting a 9.5 inch, 14-way compartment, and an oversized putter well which can be very beneficial for those that like an oversized grip on their flat-stick. The separation is both impressive and aesthetically pleasing to the eye.

Ultimately, the bag hinges on its waterproof quality, and it’s a feature which delivers in spades. The bag contains the i-Dry Rainsystem to provide water and tear resistance, and I was able to put it to the test on a wet day out on the course recently. The fabric casts away water superbly, keeping each item in the bag dry – delivering undoubtedly on the claim that the bag is 100% waterproof.

As for the storage areas, the bag has enough options for a retreat, let alone a day out on the course. The bag contains seven waterproof compartments, with both sides of the bag sporting large storage areas where you can stash larger items such as jackets. One of my favorite chambers is the “Cooler” pocket which is a great feature and ideal for carrying even a large water bottle (or whatever else you like to drink on the course!), with the specialized battery pack pocket coming in a very close second.

The bag contains a sweet umbrella storage area and even came equipped with a matching Aqua umbrella  which was another pleasant surprise. Clubs can be protected easily from the elements with Big Max’ transparent waterproof hood, while rubberized zips show that the company has gone to those extra lengths to provide a 100% waterproof bag.

A large comfortable strap sits the bag nicely and comfortably over one’s shoulder, and two rubberized handles provide for ease when lifting the bag.

I got to test out the vibrant red cart bag, which is the loudest of the colors provided and my personal favorite. Still, for those that prefer lower-key tones, then the brand have you covered with black-silver, charcoal-black-red, navy-black-silver and silver-black-cobalt color code options available.

Overall the Big Max Aqua Sport 2 cart bag is a mightily impressive bag which ticks the box in every department and provides you with an array of options storage wise. For winter months the bag’s values are priceless, but the seven pocket system and lightweight but robust nature means that it’s a bag which will also be seeing plenty of action in the summer months.

The bag retails at $299, and from now until christmas comes with a free matching Aqua umbrella worth $39.99. The Big Max Aqua Sport 2 cart bag is available to purchase now at BigMaxGolf.com.

Forum Thread of the Day: “Forged game improvement irons?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from jjfcpa who opens up a discussion on forged game improvement irons. Our members have been discussing the array of forged irons on the market, and which ones WRXers rate highest in each department.

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.

  • Millhill88: “In the GI Category…. If you’re set on forged, look at the Srixon 585’s. Very forgiving, great feel and loooong. If you’re open to “forged feel”, try the Titleist T300’s. I switched from the 585’s to the T300’s. Both of these are great for all handicaps. I’m a “9”, and wouldn’t play anything but a GI iron.”
  • JanKo: “Cobra Forged Tec Blacks are awesome as well. Decent looking head with good feel, pretty forgiving and better spin consistency than a lot of other heads I played.”
  • PreppySlapCut: “Big fan of the Miura CB-301.”
  • reider69: “I have had the 900 forged since they were released and I still love them. Very forgiving and long. The topline is much and thinner and sleeker looking than the 919’s albeit with a bit longer blade length. I still get compliments from people who see them in the bag as well.”
  • JDMRN81: “I recently had a chance to hit Honma’s TW X irons, and I was very impressed. Not very long heal to toe but does have wider soles. Great looking irons overall.”
