Forum Thread of the Day: “Smallest blade iron ever made?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from justasgood who asks WRXers for their view on the smallest iron blade ever made. Our members discuss what they believe to be the smallest blade head that has been made as well as the smallest blade irons that they have ever played.

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.

  • Fairway14: “’70s era Dunlop/Maxfli Australian blades were small heads. So were any of the ’60s and ’70s era Wilson Staff blades.For comparison, any of the blades made during the past 20 years, from companies such as Mizuno, have head sizes about 15% to 20% larger than older blade irons.”
  • Oet11: “Went digging through the garage found Arnold Palmer 3 iron from the late ’70s, smaller than my Cobras.”
  • golfguycanada: “I have some older Wilson “staff” blades that would look perfectly natural at a table setting for a five-course dinner. You could literally butter the bread with them.”
  • rgk5: “1983 Cleveland 588 blades. Miniscule and the smallest I ever saw and played.”

    rgk5: “1983 Cleveland 588 blades. Miniscule and the smallest I ever saw and played.”
    I don’t know what your talking about since Cleveland 588 were originally called that because it was the 5 th wedge design in 1988. Before that it was the 485. All 588 irons were after 1988.
    My vote is for the Muira baby blades. If you know them there’s no other choice.

      This. Muirfield 20th 1 iron looks impossible to hit. Maybe it wasn’t meant to be hit since it was a commemorative model for his 20 majors.

In our forums, our members have been discussing the best 4/5 hybrids from the last few seasons that can be picked up for sub $100. WRXer ‘jadedennill’ asks fellow members for their thoughts on the best models and options and WRXers oblige with plenty of 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.

  • hoosier84: “I would suggest the Cobra F7 4/5 hybrid. It’s adjustable and seems less susceptible to hooks that other hybrids that I have used.”
  • wgpinc: “Callaway X2 Hot. I like mine a lot.”
  • Whit1969: “Titleist 818 hands down. Do some searching, and you can find them at $100 or less.”
  • Golf64: “Ping, Cobra, Cally are where I would look. Easier to launch.”
  • Bridges: “Honma hybrids do not get much love, but they are fantastic and cheap.”

What GolfWRXers are saying about different face angles for drivers

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing different face angles for drivers and the benefits of an open, closed and square driver face. WRXer ‘BNgolf70’ asks which face angle is most popular amongst fellow members and why, and WRXers have been having their say 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.

  • gvogel: “I happen to like a slightly closed face. I also happen to like to play a draw.”
  • NoTalentLefty: “Open . Severe dislike for closed face clubs. Looks unnatural.”
  • St Jimmy: “I have a tendency to grip strong with my woods, so for that reason, an open face usually has a pretty straight ball flight for me. I tend to hook closed faced clubs.”
  • retrogolfer36: “I prefer square. My normal driver flight is a slight fade, so I try to start the ball on the left side of the fairway and let it fade back to the middle or to the right side of the fairway. With a closed face driver, I get pulls, and with an open face driver, my fade becomes a slice.”
  • Tar_Heel_93: “Slightly open face works best for me. Square face is ok, closed doesn’t work.”
