Forum Thread of the Day: “Players iron with a large head and wide sole?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from MillHill88 who is on the hunt for a players iron featuring a large head and wide sole. Preferring the “low offset of a players iron, and the wider sole of a game improvement iron”, MillHill88 receives plenty of suggestions on what could be the ideal fit from fellow WRXers.

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.

  • hackdaddy360: “Some will disagree, but I like the Titleist T-MBs. Minimal offset and a slightly larger head – yet retain a relatively thin top line. I’ve been a long time blade player but decided to give these a go after trying a number of irons. So far I’m happy with them – the notable difference for me is how much straighter my shots are vs. blades. Ball flight is also higher on average – which I didn’t really need help with – but it’s nice to see the mid irons stop on a dime after falling out of the sky like a meteor and freeze where they land.”
  • 3PuttsRLife: “Callaway XR Pro. They split time in the bag with a set of snake eyes 600 blades, and it’s an easy transition. The XR Pro has just the right amount of offset, and top line is not too thick, and the sole is just a hair wider. A lot of forgiveness in a head that suits better players’ eyes.”
  • SwooshLT: “Srixon z785……you’re welcome.”
  • mtlJeff: “The Mizuno 919 forged has a bit of a bigger head than the Srixon Z785. Those might be a good option. I remember thinking they were quite forgiving for a forged ‘players’ club.”

    This is a stupid thread
    Players Iron – large head and wide sole, UTTER NONSENSE
    How about a thread looking for a Game Improvement Iron for a high handicapper with a small head, narrow sole and ting sweet spot

    My vote would go to the Tefal FV9788. Went through my laundry like a champ and didn’t leave a crease.

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.”
