    For the regular golfer, getting fit for single length irons would be a long and expensive process, it would be pointless to buy off the rack single length irons. That is why the other major oem companies are not offering their irons in single length. Bryson obviously can and it works for him.. I think that single length irons would be very beneficial for the majority of amateur golfers, I would definitely like to give it a try.

      The fitting process is no longer than it is for traditional irons. What you’re really saying is that getting fit is harder than buying right off the rack. Yes, it is. Which is why most clubs are sold that way and most golfers are playing with sticks that actually hold them back–no matter at what level they play.

    Safe bet with his type of swing that driver loft is much higher at impact…amazing how little rotation of the club face in his swing…I bet he has trained himself to the point his club face is square to the target from setup to impact…very square to square with high hands of Moe Norman setup and huge body turn away and back…..just looks like it hurts…

    99% of all golfers worldwide cannot play his 7º Cobra F9 driver. It’s uncontrollable at low clubhead speeds. Keep deluding gearhead geeks.. lol

      Same comment as previous article there, Al. Which driver can the 99% hit?

      Is it 7* or 9* ???
      The top photo says it’s set on 7* and in the second photo it’s set to 9* ???
      That’s if you actually believe that it is possible to change the loft of any adjustable driver !

        They’re both set to 7 degrees on the “MyFly” setting.

    Every review has been very positive on the new Cobra driver. I’d like to try one of those grips on my driver and hit a SIK putter…but no retailers sell them that I am aware of.

    I saw Bryson hit it around The Australian in our Open C’ship a few years back, and his ball striking was just as good as anyone’s – including Adam Scott & Rory & Jordan Spieth! No way I’m using single length clubs (I love my MP-68s), but if it works for him, that’s great. Good to see someone with different ideas sticking it to the establishment!

    Is this his first tournament with the F9 driver?
    This dudes going to become Cobras new poster child. No hate on Bryson i just wish Mr. Fowler would turn it up.

      Well said CCR Fan Man. I love Ricky and really hope he starts winning. I just cannot make myself like this guy above. Great game but what a terd of a person.

    WHO DAT? Dat boy De-sham-bo done did it agin!

    Let the Bryson hating begin. But know that all of us single-length players are loving it.

      Yeah but the difference is, you don’t have Jumbo Max grips on your clubs and you still can’t hit your driver straight so what’s the point of the single length for you, you idiot

      • Thomas A

        Nov 5, 2018 at 10:41 am

        The point is it works for him and he likes to golf with them you idiot.

      • Rich Douglas

        I’m sorry for your unhappiness, CaoNiMa. I hope you get past it soon.

Forum Thread of the Day: “Softest, most forgiving players cavity irons?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from moorebaseball, who asks fellow GolfWRX members for their recommendations on soft and forgiving players cavity irons. A whole host of different irons get a mention in the thread, with Mizuno’s cavity irons proving to be one of the most popular choices amongst our members.

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.

  • jimb: “I haven’t hit anything better feeling than the 2013 Callaway X-Forged.”
  • deep18: “As others have said, JPX919 Tour. Players look but according to Mizuno’s data, slightly more forgiving than the AP3 and almost as forgiving as the MMC.”
  • elwhippy: “Mizuno will be the softest. Srixon a close second. I imagine the TM will be most forgiving. AP2s are very blade like in their performance. P760 goes very high and straight with DG 105 and 120 shafts.”
  • 300_Straight: “Wilson V6 Tour is also a great feeling iron from what I’ve heard. Never personally tested it, though. Any Srixon 7 or 9 series irons are very soft, as are most Mizunos, Callaway X Forged, etc.”

Callaway launches new Big Bertha Irons and Hybrids

Published

on

Callaway has today announced the introduction of its new Big Bertha Irons and hybrids, which feature a thinner club face and optimized center of gravity, designed to provide easier launch and greater distance.

Big Bertha Irons

Following on from the 2016 Big Bertha OS Irons line, which showcased Callaway’s EXO-Cage technology, these new Big Bertha irons will feature the company’s brand new Suspended Energy Core. The Suspended Energy Core features a Metal Injection Molded (MIM’d) Tungsten Floating Weight suspended within a urethane microsphere material to create a deeper center of gravity. According to Callaway, this yields easy launch, longer, and more consistent golf shots.

The Big Bertha Irons will also feature Callaway’s 360 Face Cup, which employs a flexible rim around the face that flexes and releases at impact — this aims to increase ball speed. Owing to the new Suspended Energy Core, this will be Callaway’s thinnest face cup yet, which the company says results in increased ball speeds.

Callaway’s new Big Bertha Irons will be available with Recoil ESX, Recoil ZT9, and KBS Max 90 shafts. The irons hit the shelves on Jan. 18 and will cost $1,200 in steel and $1,300 in graphite.

Big Bertha Hybrids

The new Big Bertha Hybrids will feature Jailbreak Technology, which Callaway first introduced in 2017 with the Epic line. The technology, which was created with the aim of promoting faster ball speed and greater distance, incorporates two internal bars that stiffen the body, placing more impact load on the face. It proved to be a very popular addition from Callaway, and in their new Big Bertha Hybrids, the company have combined this technology with a new shorter and lighter OptiFit Hosel System designed to optimize the center of gravity for an easier launch and a higher, long-carrying flight.

The new hybrids from Callaway also feature an ultra-thin, Carpenter 455 steel face and Hyper Speed Face Cup, with the combination designed to create optimum ballspeed across the face.

The Big Bertha Hybrids will be available in both premium Recoil ESX and ZT9 Shafts, and they will be in stores on Jan. 18 for $269.99 each.

A special thanks to our Brian Knudson for braving the chill and doing his best to find a few blades of green grass for the outdoor, in-hand photos readers prefer.
