    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

        Nov 5, 2018 at 1:15 pm

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

GolfWRX Spotlight: Arias True Zero Offset D-23 irons

Published

on

Product: Arias True Zero Offset D-23 irons 

Pitch: From the company…

  • Easiest irons to align at the target on the market.
  • Classic no offset look at address reminiscent of past generation’s most iconic iron designs.
  • Full cavity back, midsize blade length, blade height and sole width
  • Modern friendly sole grind with beveled leading and trailing edge makes this iron easy to play both from the fairway and the rough
  • 431SS with proprietary heat treatment.

Our take on the Arias Zero Offset D-23 irons

There are a lot of parameters involved in the design of an iron, including, but not limited to: material, blade length, sole width, camber, bounce, hosel length, groove configuration, and of course offset. Offset is one of the design characteristics that can be quite polarizing from a looks perspective, depending on the golfer. We golfers are a picky bunch when it comes to how our clubs look, but that has less to do with handicap or skill level and more to do with just plain personal preference.

That’s where J.R Robert comes in. Hailing from a custom fitting and building background, with years of experience and having a preference for zero offset clubs, he set out to design an iron that would be both preferred by the better players but playable for golfers of varying skill level that prefer a club with no offset. The result is the Arias D-23 with True Zero Offset.

I got the chance to speak with J.R about his design and he explained his goals for the D-23 irons

“The goal was to create an iron model that was forgiving enough for a higher handicap player while blending together features the better player would demand.”

Through prototyping and testing, J.R found the D-23 zero offset helped golfers with alignment issues get set up to there intended target easier, and for those who had issues with missing left (speaking to right-handed golfers) the Zero Offset D-23 helped correct for that too. J.R admits that although they are very playable, golfers that struggle with leaving the face open at impact might not be the ideal candidates.  Also, those who are used to offset in their clubs might at first be turned away from the design, but for players that have always enjoyed the look of a club with less offset, these are clubs that should go right to the top of the list.

For more information on the D-23s, along with the line of M-29 onset wedges from Arias Golf, you can visit their website at True Zero Offset

Forum Thread of the Day: “Your favorite blade irons?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from moorebaseball, who asks fellow members what their favorite blade irons are. Our members discuss what blades they consider to be best for them, and why, while also contributing plenty of great photos of their prized possessions.

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.

  • greenpiece: “MP-14 is my all-time favorite. Great feel, turf interaction, and control.”
  • BMC: “The Callaway 2018 Apex MB feel incredible and are fairly easy to hit. I started playing blades in 1988 – Wilson Staff fluid feel. Those Apexes are sweet.”
  • bodhi555: “I’d say any of the models Nike brought out when they were in the game – the OGs, VR TW or VR Pros. Current favourites are the VR Pros, usual great Nike looks and crisp feel, but the grooves are savage and put unreal amounts of spin on the ball. No harder to hit than a player’s CB either. Only challenge is finding a decent set. It took me 18 months of scouring eBay and Golfbidder to find mine.”
  • bfp9: “My favorites: 2006 Hogan Apex. OG Nike Blades. Taylormade RAC TP MB. Mizuno MP-32. I’ve only hit older blades as you can see. I tried the PXG experiment, and that failed, so I’m sticking to what I know. To me old blades = new blades. Nothing has changed significantly enough to warrant new ones for me, except the grooves wearing thin on my Hogans.”
  • kiwi1982: “MP-69. Traditional, proper weighting, great feel.”
