    never hit a driver so high, nor so consistantly. All the Best.

    Played with the JPX 825 driver today to test one out. I have never hit a straighter drive than before, distance will improve upon more practice but look and feel just excellent. Bought one after one round, highly recommend.

    Been playing the Mizuno 630 Fast Track driver for a bit over a year now with the Mitsubishi Fubuki shaft. At age 62, and having played the game since I was 12, I’m a traditionalist. In fact, until I put the Mizuno in my bag, I was playing Louisville Golf persimmon drivers, albeit with state of the art graphite shafts. Tried many titanium drivers over the years, but never found anything that was so clearly superior that I was tempted to give up my real woods–their look, sound, feel & workability always surpassed the titanium monstrosities that I tried. With the superb shafts Louisville uses, their length was just a few yards less than the tis and their dispersion was much better. The Mizuno changed my mind. At 440 cc and a very compact shape, its size is acceptable. Its sound, feel, workability and length are remarkable. As many reviewers said, they are not for high handicappers. But for a player who strikes the ball consistently well–something my persimmons required me to do–they yield real benefits. I consistently hit the Mizuno 20 to 25 yards further than I did with my persimmons, the dispersion is about the same and the sound and feel are better than any titanium I ever tried before, even Titleist. Not as sweet as persimmon, but close. These newer Mizunos appear from the photos to have a lot in common with my 630s. If they do in real life, I suspect Mizuno has another fine club on its hands. However, as the comments of others show, they probably won’t sell very well. Therefore, at the end of the year some players will likely be able to purchase them as I did mine at a terrific discount. I also have the same model year strong 3 and 5woods and the 2 & 3 hybrids by Mizuno. They work great for me. Sticking with my Tommy Armour Silver Scot blades for now, however. Tradition, you know.

    I use to have Mizuno woods not anymore. They just don’t stack up to the other companies. I now have the Ping i20 driver, great woods. I love their irons and have the MP-63’s…awesome sticks!

    These look like excellent player’s options. Ordering the 3 wood and driver tout suite! These may not be for 15 + handicaps, but everyone else should definitely hit them on the course before buying anything else! The new 913 driver from Tit are pretty competitive though!

SPOTTED: New Callaway Forged irons… Apex or Legacy?

Published

on

Photos of a new Callaway Forged iron popped up in our GolfWRX Forums, and our members are trying to figure out whether they’re going to be replacements for Apex Pro irons, or whether they’re an update on the Legacy series. They could also be X-Forged irons, but since Callaway recently came out with new X-Forged irons, that would be unlikely.

Here’s what GolfWRX Members are saying:

  • elwhippy: A new Legacy iron? Looks a bit Japanese shaped. 
  • mattTHEkatt: Like an X-Forged/Legacy Black mashup. They look powerful. 
  • DTown3011: …gotta be the next Apex!
  • J13: Pics look like a newer legacy black.
  • mgholda: Pics look like a newer legacy black.
  • TheMoneyShot: I thought Cally was going to phase out the Apex name after they released the MBs?
  • john443: A larger cavity in these then the X- Forged… competitor to the 750 and AP3 maybe? …or Legacy Black finally brought to retail…hallelujah. CF16 replacement???!
  • Equipto: These look very sharp, and like thumpers. I don’t care if they are a Legacy Black or Apex replacement, call them whatever… i’ll try them 
  • mrmikeac: Next gen Callaway Apex Legacy? Hmmmm…..
  • Brizam: The Legacy Black might be the best players cavity back ever made.  If they were to become available they’d move straight to the top of the list of clubs to buy for me. 
  • Jourdan M: This is the Apex Pro 

Here are photos of the new Callaway irons we spotted

Wilson’s new FG Tour V6 RAW irons (yes, they will rust)

Published

on

Wilson came out with its FG Tour V6 irons in 2016, but these new Raw versions have a different look… and with time, they’ll have a VERY different look.

The new FG Tour V6 Raw irons have an unplated finish, and they’re designed to “develop a unique patina based on age, exposure and use over time,” according to Wilson. This gives each iron a unique look, and one that’s far from the clean cut original FG Tour release that had a chrome finish (which won’t rust).

In addition to the rusting effect, the irons are different because they have a copper badge in the cavity that will eventually match the color of the golf club over time. Here’s a graphic mock-up of how the Raw irons may look overtime.

Like the original releases, the irons have tungsten weights and mass behind the impact area for a “forged feel” and “improved feedback,” according to the company.

The FG Tour V6 Raw irons are a custom option on Wilson.com, and are available through Wilson’s premium partner accounts as of today, Tuesday, June 19. According to Wilson, the Raw irons “are a very limited production run,” so only a certain amount of sets will even be built.
