Forum Thread of the Day: “Going back in time equipment-wise?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Jaygolf37 who asked WRXers on their thoughts on going back in time equipment-wise. Jaygolf37 has recently found success after putting his Ping i5 irons back in his bag, and our members share their thoughts and experiences of siding with older equipment.

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.

  • Aviador Naval: “I put a ~2005-2006 original Cleveland Ti Launcher fairway back in the bag for the umpteenth time. Smaller footprint by today’s standards. Only 15 deg club I’ve been able to hit reliably from turf. Currently playing a Mn-Bn Anser I bought in 1989. Like the lighter head weight. Just got some MP20 mid and short irons which are basically a redo of the TN-87s. Changes driven by a mix of functionality (fw), variety (putter), and irrational ho’ing (irons).”
  • cgasucks: “All my gamers are old with my newest clubs made in the early 2010s. I feel that with a good swing fundamental, one can play with any club out there. I think older clubs are better feeling, obviously a lot cheaper, and can still keep up with the present-day clubs out there since golf tech has been stagnant for years.”
  • scotty_2987: “Just put my 910 D2 back in play yesterday and had the best driving day I’ve had in a long time, and I was hitting it just as far as all the newer drivers.”
  • MountainGoat: “Whenever I lose my swing, I go back to a set of Maltby CER701Us that I assembled in 2006. Those are the clubs I was using when I discovered my current swing technique, so those are the ones I inevitably return to when I need to re-discover it.”

    Sorry, but if any of my old stuff was better than today’s gear, I’d still be using it.

    Better to think about WHY some of that old gear worked and see if you’re still leveraging those characteristics in your current clubs.

    For example, I really had a good time when I switched to a Callaway Steelhead driver with a 43.5″ shaft. I’m thinking about going to a similar length the next time I get fit for a driver, although it will be with a modern head and shaft.

    I play ~2007 Cleveland CG-7 Tour Irons. I work at a course where we have demo days multiple times per year. I’ve never found a set of irons with that combination of forgiveness, butter feeling, thin topline, and excellent sound. The closest thing I’ve been able to find were the Apex MBs, but they’re nowhere near as forgiving.

Today from the Forums: “New Axis 1 Tour-HM models at the 2020 Honda Classic”

Published

on

Today from the Forums shines the spotlight on new Axis 1 Tour-HM models featured at this week’s Honda Classic. The flat-sticks have garnered lots of reaction from WRXers, with our members currently split on the unique designs.

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.

  • tiger99210: “I like them. Doesn’t look Odd at all.”
  • Barracuda: “I don’t get the hate on companies that are actually trying to do something better than what we have available. I don’t play axis1, but it was definitely on my shortlist, I ended up with a LAB putter. It does look funky; it also helps me score better than my stunning queen B6.”
  • Steel Dillo: “I’d be more interested if they were priced reasonably. Just don’t see what drives their cost up comparable to a fully milled specialty brand other than having Rose’s name on them. IMO, they should be in that $200-$250 range like their other putters.”

The Cut Blue DC contains a 4-piece construction with a urethane cover designed to maximize spin and greenside feel, while the ball’s 360 dimple pattern is designed to increase aerodynamics.

The latest ball from Cut Golf is fully conforming to USGA rules, features 105 compression (up from 90 on the original Cut Blue) and arrives in both white and atomic yellow color codes.

The Cut Blue DC is available to purchase now at CutGolf.com and costs $29.95 per dozen.
