Forum Thread of the Day: “Those who have changed from forged/blade irons to big game improvers – did it improve your handicap?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from mattd1 who asks whether any fellow members have changed irons from forged/blade to game improvers, and if so, had they seen their handicap improve as a result. Our members share their experiences of making the switch.

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.

  • NRJvzr: “Played Eye2+ for a year. Was a seven at the start, was a seven at the end of that calendar year. The only thing that really came of it was a trajectory change; I hit the Eye2+ quite a bit higher than my previous irons and was playing low loft drivers. In bringing down the Ping trajectory, I found I subsequently hit everything lower, and could largely not play my old drivers. LOL”
  • Kingcat990: “Nope. I balance between the blades of blades to Cleveland CBX irons and see no change. Like others, I see a difference in ball flight, and I will grab one club stronger when using MB’s. Other than that, it’s pretty straight forward.”
  • Chuck905: “I hit the new 790s vs all the blades (mentioned here as well) yesterday, and the difference I saw was a touch higher launch and lower spin, something to keep in mind when you are hitting into greens. Or if you play windy days, the lower spin will be an advantage. Surprisingly, the new 790s felt really good.”
  • farmer: “Play hybrids through the 7, to a 5 handicap. Have they helped? Yes. Are they ugly? Yes. Do I care? No.”

    Hit an i500 3 iron and i210 4 iron and s55 5/PW. Don’t think I’d like the bigger ones above 5 iron, but in long irons I love having more help and would never go back to an iblade or s55 long iron.

    Yes, absolutely! I went from Callaway MB’s to Cobra F9 Speedback’s, and yes, my ball striking improved over night! Going from butter knives to shovels will improve anyone’s game dramatically. Had to check my multi-year golfing ego at the door, and glad I did. I was a pretty decent golfer to begin with, 8 hdcp., but shaved some strokes immediately with these bad boys. I’m a solid 4 hdcp. since I put these in the bag last April. I just aim and shoot. When I do miss greens it’s no more than 12-15 yards off.

Forum Thread of the Day: “Kiradech Aphibarnrat’s custom SuperStroke grips”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day showcases Kiradech Aphibarnrat’s custom SuperStroke grips. The shape of the grips has been given the seal of approval from WRXers who have been keenly discussing the SuperStroke creations in our forums.

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.

  • JCM96: “Love SuperStroke’s texture and feel. If they would just release their tapered grips, they’d get a stranglehold of the putter grip market.”
  • jgolf215: “Interesting shape. The colors are pretty understated for him. I would have expected a much brighter green.”
  • nova6868: “Really like the shape on those. Would definitely buy one if they were available.”
  • GoIrish17: “What’s it say? SGP1.0? I like the shape of it; I hope it comes to retail (or SuperStroke sells them through their eBay store). It looks like a grip I’d like to try.”

Forum Thread of the Day: “New SeeMore putters”

SeeMore Putter

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day showcases an array of new SeeMore putters. The new flat-sticks from SeeMore have been a hot topic for discussion amongst our members, with the brand’s plumber neck additions garnering plenty of reaction.

For lots more photos, check out the full forum thread here.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say on the new putters at the link below.

  • bunta: “The fact that they put the alignment line on the topline of the Ancers makes me feel obligated to give them a try.”
  • poppman2142: “So the plumbers going into the head at such a severe angle is making them face-balanced I assume? I guess I would prefer the hosel to angle towards the center of the face and have the shaft angle back where it enters the hosel, so I don’t see the entire length of the hosel at address to make it face balanced. To each their own I guess!”
  • MaineMariner: “Those are some very interesting and unique hosels. Gotta hand it to SeeMore, they sure are innovative. I could definitely see myself grabbing that plumber’s neck notchback.”
