    I think the irons look great. I have never purchased Callaway irons. I never bought the idea of a uniflex shaft for everyone. I feel Callaway has missed the low HC market that doesn’t want forged irons. I want irons that don’t punish me when I miss them. I think these Pro series might work for me. Ofcourse I want to see how they compare with the new rocketbladez.

    Wow! I am surprised by the comments about the looks of the irons…I guess “to each his own” but I think these irons (X Hot Pro) look very nice and classy (I did not say classic) compared to the X Hot 24 and Raxr X graphics…I also see them repalcing the Razr X Tour and that was a very good looking iron at address… and played by quite a few on the Tour’s…I just hope in the “Pro” we can get some decent shaft choices without upcharges…

    We hit the Fairway Wood and it blew everyone away who hit it! Stunning FairwayWood and it is definitely going in my bag when it drops. The Tour FW is so choice.

    Awesome. These clubs fly at least a club longer than my AP2’s

      Yeah, but how do the lofts compare? Most of these new ‘longer distance’ irons being made today are being delofted – hence the greater distances eg the loft of the new TM Rocketbladez 6iron is akin to the Callaway X-22 5iron but TM claim thieir 6iron is 11 yards longer than the X-22 6iron!!

      Really? It looks like a Titty-TM mangled step-child.
      Like an AP2 with the Burner 2.0 mixed together, no?
      LAZY design! Truly, truly lazy. Nothing unique or cool about this one, at all!

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.”
