    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!

    I just love the old JPX800 3 Wood. Propably the stick I have most confidence with. Can’t wait to test this one also!

What GolfWRXers are saying about the best Nike driver ever

Published

on

@ukgolfclubsales

In our forums, our members have been discussing Nike drivers. WRXer ‘DixieD’ is currently building up a Nike bag and has reached out to fellow members for driver advice, and WRXers have been sharing what they feel is the best Nike driver ever made.

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.

  • Ger21: “VR Pro LE? I have two I was still playing last year.”
  • mahonie: “The STR8-Fit Tour was one of the best drivers I’ve played. Still have it the garage and take it to the range occasionally…it would possibly still be in the bag if it hadn’t developed a ‘click’ in the head which I cannot fix. Long, straight(ish) and nice sound.”
  • jackr189: “The VR_S is one of the best.”
  • Finaus_Umbrella: “I played the Vapor Fly Pro, and still do on occasion for nostalgia sake. Sound and feel are great, but it demands a good strike.”
  • PowderedToastMan: “I enjoyed the SQ Tour back in the day, the one Tiger used forever. Do I miss it? Not at all, but it was a pretty good club for its time.”

What GolfWRXers are saying about driving irons for mid-handicappers

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing whether mid-handicappers can benefit from a driving iron. WRXer ‘jomatty’ says:

“I average about 230 off the tee on good drives. I can get a little more sometimes, but 230 is probably the average. I’m 42 years old and shoot in the mid to low 80’s. I do not get along with fairway woods very well, especially off the tee, and really don’t get enough extra length over my hybrid to consider using it aside from very rare situations on par 5’s (I’ve considered just going from driver to 19-degree hybrid and getting an extra wedge or something).”…

…and wants to know if he would be better served by a driving iron. Our members have been sharing their thoughts and suggestions.

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.

  • MtlJeff: “If you can shoot mid 80’s, you probably hit it well enough to hit a bunch of different clubs. Personally, I think hybrids are easier to hit….but some driving irons are quite forgiving. I use a G400 crossover that is very easy to hit and looks more iron-like. Something like that you might like. Be careful with some of them though because they aren’t always super forgiving, so you’d have to hit them first.”
  • HackerD: “G410 crossover is my version of a driving iron, feel like I hit it straighter than a hybrid. Just as easy to hit as a hybrid.”
  • hanginnwangin: “I shoot in the low 80s normally and in the 70s on my really good days. I have probably around the same or similar swing speed as you. I have been hitting my 4 iron off the tee on tight holes, and it’s been working pretty well so far. I hit it about 190-220. I have a 4 hybrid but just can’t hit it as consistently as the 4 iron, and it doesn’t even go much farther. I have a 5 wood which I only use for 220+ yard par 3s or wide-open fairways. Basically, it’s all personal preference and what you do best with. Everyone is going to be different. Try new stuff out and see what works. But if irons are the strongest part of your game (they are for me as well), I would give the 4 iron a shot. You can get a lot of roll out on the tee shots with it,”
  • Hellstrom: “Don’t laugh, but I bought a 17* hybrid with a senior flex shaft at a garage sale for $5, and I can hit it nice and easy and keep it in play without losing any distance. My driver SS is between 105 and 110 usually and swinging this thing feels like swinging a spaghetti noodle, but it works. I don’t have it in the bag all the time, but I do use it for certain courses. I take my 6 iron out and throw that in, so if I struggle with getting the ball off the tee, I just go to that.”
