My daughter just got her 2015 VT MAX Velocity clubs from Flynn Golf.  These clubs are top quality.  We had such a great experience with Mike Flynn also as we put in an order before the PGa merchandise show and he sent them out before he left.  

Here is a short video to showcase the clubs.  My daughter had US kids Clubs and was hitting her driver around 100 carry and 115 with roll.  Well last Sunday she hit a 176 yard shot (with roll) and is hitting around 150 yards carry.  That is a HUGE difference and the ball flight is beautiful with these clubs.  The driver makes a great ping sound also which my girl loves. I am not a rep or anything but have to spread the word on these clubs. They are amazing.  We also got to pickup the color of the shafts and put some winn dri tac grips.   The club fitting was great as we have all the information to Mike and he recommend the best "fit" for my daughter. It made a difference.

Here is the video.

Our experience with Mike Flynn and his equipment was exactly like yours. (and well documented on Golf WRX)  He is so tuned in to junior clubs (only) that right out of the box, it makes a major impact on the performance of your child's game.  Like all aspects of life, time marches on and my son has outgrown Mike's equipment, and is on his third set of pro clubs.  (Mizuno butter knives--my boy says they do feel like butter...I wouldn't know... the three times I actually hit the sweet spot.)  In any case, put me down as an enthusiastic supporter of Flynn-Golf junior clubs!

Good luck Isabella!  (If for some reason golf doesn't work out for you, don't worry...I see you having your own cable TV show!)

How much did that set up run?  I'm starting to shop for new clubs for my 10yr old daughter.

Those ran around 400 if I remember correctly.  They are great clubs and what my daughter loved is that she got to pick the shaft colors and grip.  She did around another 20 yards of carry on the driver.  

Here are two videos of her

I'd recommend dealing with a major vendor such as US Kids with real distribution. The ordering and fulfillment process with Flynn is a joke.

Can you elaborate?  I had a great transaction and Mike had great communication.

I have had nothing but great service from Mike.  He is quick to respond and makes great products.  I would highly recommend.

Great review, nice done video and very entertaining and informative :)

Now, if only Flynn Golf would get up their new website - there is still NOTHING on the Velocity clubs. Are they not expecting any sales?

Yes I know they said it would be up like in March but nothing yet.  I can tell you that we saw alot of kids with the new clubs at the World championship in San Diego so they are getting around and ordered.

My son went from US Kids (which are great clubs) to VT Max and he loves them. He is much more consistent with them and hits the ball a little higher. We are anxiously awaiting the velocity clubs and new website. Mike Flynn has been absolutely fantastic in all my dealings with him, including rapid response to my many emails and questions and shipping. Club quality is outstanding. My son just turned 6 last month and is a little small for his age (currently 44" and 38 lbs) so getting the clubs just right was a process that Mike aced!
I tried to order another wedge from him a month ago and he informed me that he was out of iron heads because the new ones were going to be available at the end of this year. He said the weighting is much better for the kids and they will have an easier time getting the ball up.
As I said, we had great luck with the clubs and they have withstood a full season of being pounded by my little man. Excited for next year.

I think we are going to make the change effective immediately to the Flynn irons.  I just need the 9 and 7 to fill out his set.  Distance seems comparable to the US Kids UL set, but I'm noticing the turf interaction and grooves to be superior with the Flynns.  Here is 6 iron DTL.

My son is 10 and currently hits the us kids ts irons. Curious about what you guys think about switching to Flynn irons. Do you think there would be a big difference. He's an advanced player but wanted to get you guys input. Thanks so much.

If you think it's worth it and he's an advanced player then I'd get a proper fitting done at either Club Champion or Cool Clubs.  We were using the Flynn set from 8 1/2 - 9 1/2 when I noticed the shafts were to whippy for my son.

doesn't Flynn make different flexes of the shafts?

Mike is pretty amazing.  I ordered 3 irons this morning and he already shipped them out.  LOL

My son has a Flynn hybrid and hits it fantastic, just wanted to get some input on those currently hitting the irons compared to the us kids ts irons. Thanks in advance.

I know kids that play both and it's either one or the other.  Most of the kids I know play the Flynn with the slightly bigger/stronger kids playing the ts US Kids.  If my son was tall enough for the ts, he would likely be using them as I have a set.

Right now, the Flynn are prefect in every way.  I thought the head was too small for him to hit consistently, but apparently not.

Ok cool. My son is 10 but is small for his age. He hits the ts irons well, but wanted to know if the Flynn irons would match up better for him because of his size. Thanks again, love getting feedback.

He does but for us it made more sense to go stiffer than his offering.

If he hits them well, I would see no reason to make the change.  Best of luck and hit'em well.  

As a side thought, I had a chance to inspect the clubs used by the 7yr old winner.  He is using a Srixon CB iron that had almost no offset with cut down lady shafts.  I couldn't really communicate with the father, but I would guess he has some type of deal with Srixon as he had all the woods and hybrids as well.

Thanks so much!! That's pretty impressive hitting a CB at that age. Amazing the setups of some of these kids clubs.

Dang. Thats an interesting setup. But that could be as Srixon is based out of Japan. Just a thought.

Hi all!

My 7, almost 8 year old picked up the bug over the summer, and started to wear out his XJ hot callaway set that was a gift from a friend.
Hits the set well, but I think the heads are rather heavy and he's developed a few swing quirks because of it.  Took 3rd place in his first ever tournament recently

Went to big box superstore, and he was hitting the 51" USKIds UL relatively well, generating 5500 backspin on a 7iron.  Ultralight driver was pretty good too, about similar to the Callaway.
Tried the USKids tour, and was a bit more consistent with the irons, but spin was 3500 on the 7 iron only.  It also looked like he was letting the club do the work.  Couldn't get the Tour driver off the ground (12 degree from his callaway16 degree).

Not sure where to go, relatively strong swinger, but I don't want to perpetuate any bad habits from heavy clubs.
Was thinking of going to VT Maxx velocity, as the series one was slightly heavier than the UL, and slightly lighter than the US kids tours with better shafts.  Lots of people like the driver as well.
He likes the colors too, but just have a hard time buying sight unseen.

Thoughts?

Lastly, what is everyone doing for putters? He's using the 2 ball junior putter that came with the XJ set, but at the superstore, he really liked an odyssey works putter, and of course an almost 400 dollar scotty,

I thought about cutting down the odyssey but the guys there said that would really screw up the weighting etc.  Grips were an issue as well.  Any recommendations on a nice blade style putter for a 51" junior?

Appreciate the help!

I recently put my daughter in a series 2 flynn iron heads. (email mike he will place them based on his swing) THe series 2 is a bit lighter than the tour series but heavier than the UL. We did the full setup less the putter. She much better flight and distance with the driver, to be hoenst with all of her flynn clubs. Only had them a few weeks so she still breakign them in and trying to feel eveything out.  Good thing with flynn is you can customize how you want colors, grips lengthes ect.  Her setup was standard us kids 51 lenght but the woods were longer.  Really love the wedges too. They have a great feeling too. I do notice much better control since going this direction.    The other option you can go is OEM driver with a flynn shaft, in my experence I havent noticed a ton of distance OEM vs Flynn I think they are pretty equal.

On putters I would get any OEM and cut it down. I got a used spider and cut it down to size for her, and she been putter so much better since I did that. I did a midsize superstroke for the grip.
