    I love the one randomly shafted graphite wedge shaft

    Arm Locks now have the big bend shaft that adds the loft. That way production at Bettinardi is standard 3*.
    Also that Atmos is a “Tour Spec” 6s. Tour Spec is essentially X for us mortals. But since there isn’t a standard on flexes what Fuji says is S could be X for another brand or even line.
    I am interested on when he switched from the Steel Fibers. Believe he played 95’s so little bump in weight.

    True Temper in his Irons? Did he had the Steelfiber in the irons in the year(s) before?

      He just switched to the TT 105’s, he likes a soft flex in his irons. Some good looks of the shaft bands here. Still using the Aerofiber shaft in short clubs. Interesting bag and swing, Kuch is a throwback.

    Interesting that he uses X flex in driver but S300s in his irons

      It says S flex in the driver, can you read?

    • TacklingDummy

      It is odd, but it looks like it is only X flex in his 3-wood and hybrids.

    Those new Cleveland wedges are starting in show up in more PGA bags. Need to check them out.

      The RTX-3’s were a miss in my opinion the size and shape were large and awkward looking didn’t care for them much, but these RTX-4’s are a nice size and shape. Just beautiful and they perform!

    70 degrees of loft on his putter, eh? That’s pretty sweet.

    20* Hybrid to a 5 iron?

    • Gator022

      Would love to know the actual loft progression here. He’s definitely bent some things to make it flow for him. Likely 62 57 52 47 maybe? Then some bending at the top too to close that hybrid to 5 iron gap.

    • Gunter Eisenberg

      No. That’s the lie angle…loft is actually 3 deg.

      I own that Anser 20. It’s short. That’s just a 4-iron these days… plays like a 22.

Forum Thread of the Day: “Best ball for players with slower swing speeds?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from ghoul31 who created a thread dedicated to finding the ideal golf ball for players with slower swing speeds. Our members have their say on what is the ball most suited to slower swing speeds, with a variety of models receiving a mention.

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.

  • Hogan9: “My SS is 80 to 85. I play the Titleist AVX. Many people on these forums tell it’s wrong for me. I’ve tried several brands and types over the last year ( Pro-V-1 and 1X, Cally Supersoft and Chrome Soft, TM TP5X, Wilson Duo Soft and the Snell MTB. The AVX gives me the best overall performance for my game. I’ve had to slightly adjust to how it reacts on chips and pitches, but the extra distance off the tee is well worth it. “
  • North Butte: “Maybe 90mph driver swing on a good day. Driver 205-ish hit 6-iron from 150. Pro V1x but I have played AVX, B330, TP5 with pretty much similar results to my favorite V1x. Also played the Chrome Soft for a while but it seemed to fly a little low and sometimes have trouble holding greens (or maybe I just didn’t give it a long enough chance to know for sure).”
  • Hat Trick: “Pro V1X – Spin and higher launch keeps it in the air longer, but at the same time that spin holds the greens – SS 96-98 mph.”
  • Kmac: “My SS is right around 95-100, and I find the QST to the perfect for my game. I will also play the AVX or Chrome Soft Truvis. But for the money, nothing beats the QST.”

Forum Thread of the Day: “Single length irons stunting development?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from rbark11 who has sparked an interesting debate over single length irons in our forums. Rbark11 has been playing single length irons for the past seven months, and he is concerned that he may have issues changing back to regular length irons. Our members give their take on the matter, as well as discussing single length irons in general.

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.

  • mcs4: “No, it will not. Both my father and I are currently playing Cobra One Length irons after decades of playing variable length irons. It took both of us maybe a few rounds to feel comfortable with the switch. This weekend I played a round with my old irons, and it was different but not a big deal. My opinion is that there are pros and cons with each approach, but I don’t think picking one will make any particular negative impact on your ability to later switch to the other.”
  • Quadra: “I’ve played both. Right now I am back to VL clubs ( Wishon 560 irons). Find VL gives me more shot-making options. With uneven lies, especially with the ball above or below foot level, the shot seems easier with a more upright or flatter lie, rather than trying to manipulate a shot from clubs with only a single length/lie. VL = more shot possibilities.”
  • Aucaveman: “I played Cobra ftbo for a year. Shot my best scores ever. Our club switched to Mizuno exclusively, so I had my first real fitting. I switched to the 919 forged and had to sell the Cobras to fund the mizunos. Really wished I hadn’t. I really liked the Cobras. The shafts in the Mizuno’s are better suited for me but had I put the same shafts in the Cobras; I’d prob been better off. At some point, I’ll prob do it and go back to one lengths. I was perusing eBay yesterday actually.”
  • Brandons68: “I think that the consistency you gain from SL irons is pretty great. I have not played them personally, but have talked to several people that have, and they really like the feel of the irons and the fact that they swing every iron the same because they are all the same length.”
