What GolfWRXers are saying about the best new blade irons

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing recently released blade irons. WRXer ‘jgaudy5’ is on the hunt for some blades and is considering Ping’s Blueprints, but has asked fellow members for their choices in our forum who have been having their say.

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.

  • av1084: “They are all good…it’s down to what suits your eye and turf interaction for your swing…Sets that do seem to have a big following though: Wilson Staff Blades, Mizuno MP20, P7TW. It’s all personal preference though!”
  • Phireside: “Mizuno. Always Mizuno.”
  • Tar_Heel_93: “Lots of good choices. I love my Apex MB irons but also liked the Mizuno MP18s, MP20s and blueprints. Love the look of the Wilson irons but haven’t hit them yet. New Titleist MBs and Srixon Z forged were a step behind the other irons, but I think that had more to do with the available shafts when I hit them. I have been tempted to try the Rose Protos too.”
  • nazio: “Another vote for the Wilson Staff model blades which I’m gaming. They’re phenomenal and gorgeous and very forgiving for a blade imo.”
  • Russ757: “Z forged. Got a combo set and stopped at the 8 initially. Went back and grabbed a 7, built them up and took it to the range and proceeded to literally hit 6 flags with the blades. Now I’m looking for a 6i.”

    Todays Blade is much easier to hit than what we had in the old days. They look like real Golf Clubs and not the jacked up CBs today, although CBs are really better for all Golfers; unfortunately I can’t play anymore because of physical problems bit if I could I would be playing Wilson Blades. They are soft, and really good playing and looking. Love chrome blades.

    While all Mizuno MPs are great some (eg MP33) are particularly so but the MP 20 are, in my opinion, the best ever with progression through the set being especially noteworthy.
    Mizuno make the best irons, MPs are the best Mizunos, and MP20 are the best MPs. Nothing more to be said.

GolfWRX Classifieds (08/03/20): PXG Proto, Bettinardi putter, and one very expensive Scotty Cameron

Published

on

At GolfWRX, we love golf equipment plain and simple.

We are a community of like-minded individuals that all experience and express our enjoyment for the game in many ways. It’s that sense of community that drives day-to-day interactions in the forums on topics that range from best driver to what marker you use to mark your ball, it even allows us to share another thing – the equipment itself.

One of the best ways to enjoy equipment is to experiment and whether you are looking to buy-sell-or trade (as the name suggests) you can find almost anything in the GolfWRX BST Forum. From one-off custom Scotty Cameron Circle T putters, to iron sets, wedges, and barely hit drivers, you can find it all in our constantly updated marketplace.

These are some of the latest cool finds from the GolfWRX BST, and if you are curious about the rules to participate in the BST Forum you can check them out here: GolfWRX BST Rules

Member jeffbang62 – PXG 0811X Proto driver

In the case of the new prototype PXG driver, fewer weights actually means more adjustability. So if you are looking to do some adjusting to your long game, this could be your new weapon off the tee.

Member Wannabescratch – Bettinrdi SS8 Center Shaft 

Here we have a Bettinardi Studio Stock SS8 CS with deep etched Bettinardi Jumbo Grip. If you know putters, then you know Bettinardi means business—and this wand means business.

Member TheBoomer – Rare Timeless Scotty Cameron

In the age of social media, the phrase “now that’s something you don’t see every day” has, in some ways, lost a bit of its meaning, but in the case of this putter, it applies.

Srixon launches new Soft Feel Brite golf balls

Published

on

Srixon has introduced the second generation of its Soft Feel Brite golf balls which arrive in highly visible orange, green and red color codes.

The new additions from Srixon feature the brand’s softest FastLayer Core to date, with the core beginning soft in the center and transitioning to a firmer perimeter in design to offer equal parts distance and feel.

Srixon’s matte visual performance technology aims to provide improved visibility on the new Soft Feel Brite balls, while the ball’s 338 Speed Dimple Pattern is designed to reduce drag at launch and increase lift during descent.

The Soft Feel Brite balls also feature a soft, thin cover which bids to provide more greenside spin and softer feel on all pitches, chips and putts.

“Soft Feel Brite delivers all the benefits of the Soft Feel golf ball with additional matte color offerings. With the addition of the FastLayer Core, Soft Feel Brite provides the total package of enhanced distance, feel and visibility.” – Brian Schielke, Marketing Director at Srixon.

The Soft Feel Brite balls are available to purchase now at Srixon.com and cost $21.99 per dozen.

What irons do you play? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the irons that they currently play. WRXer ‘Vater’ asks members which brand they have in the bag and why, and you can see the results so far after 189 survey participants.

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.

  • Vater: “I use Titleist 718 AP1s because they cost less new than some used clubs, haha. In all seriousness, I love the quality overall, and specifically, I was looking for a set with a good GW – and most of all, I wanted to play a 4 iron again, and the 4 and 5 irons in the 718 AP1s are beastly.”
  • aadadams: “I use Taylormade Speedblades for about the last 6 years, they still work great for my game, and I don’t see a change in the near future.”
  • Celebros: “Cobra Forged Tour.”
  • jholz: “I am Cleveland, but towards the latter end of the glory days – CG7 Tours. About as good a club as money can buy. Wish I could find some CG7 Tour Concepts!”
  • gripandrip: “Srixon 745’s. Most likely may be looking to the ZX7 as a possible replacement. Love my Srixon irons.”
