It is hard to say 100%, maybe a mix.  I loved the clubs, was my favorite iron to look down at, but just did not make sense.  I was just not getting the same #'s as the MP5's.  Once I saw the 900F and realized they also looked really good, it was a pretty easy choice.  I don't need to make this game more difficult.  I may still take the 5's out from time to time, but am loving the 900F with the Modus.

You going local for fittings or just experimenting with different club head/shaft combo's?
I may look at Cool Clubs in Lewisville, TX as my closest and most favorable option. Sadly, nothing local that I have been impressed with.
Please tell me more about your hybrids. I am still hitting my TM R11 3h and 4h. Actually, in midst of deciding to carry both or drop one. Of late, I have been in love with the 4h and have found it very reliable. Maybe the aftermarket shaft, or maybe just the club itself. I think the biggest ??? in my bag is that transition from woods to irons with the hybrids. I have always been a high ball hitter, but with less time on the course than I'd like I am wanting every bit of help possible.

fitting?  haha,   I am not paying for a fitting unless I get to be outside on grass with Trackman, not many options in Iowa for that.

I test on course, only thing that tells me what I need to know.

I love the 815's but just recently put in the Epic 5W to replace the 3H.  I like the 5W better off the tee.  I love my 4H, just don't seem to get on well with a 4 iron.  That is my toughest place in the bag also, but finally seem to have a decent transition from wood to hybrid to iron

Just stopped by GS/GG and hit mizzy shaft optimizer. Rec'd the Ctaper lite x and Nippon Pro modus 105X. Only had time to hit handful of 900forged with the ctaper and it was VERY nice. Carry distance was about 1/2 club longer (MP53's is about 174 and was right on about 179-180 with the 900f with ctaper lites).

EDIT: just got email from our club that Cally doing trackman fitting in a couple weeks at the driving range. Signed up!

How's the Epic 5 wood?

I'm considering either that or the Sub Zero 5 wood.  I'm not in love with my 15 degree SZ 3 wood yet. Still dialing it in and may throw a Rogue I/O in it.

South Central, 20 minutes south of Des Moines.

I am loving the 5W, got home in 2 the other day from 231 on the par 5 2nd, then use it on a couple short par 4's off the tee.

I have the SZ 3+ and it came with the Fuji Pro, liked it much better with the I/O 70, but I am just hitting the T800's straight, so have that in all 3 currently.  It is funny, the SZ 3+ head is like 10 more CC's than the regular 5W, but with the heads shaped differently, and the SZ 3+ having a slightly taller face, they head size looks about the same on the 2 clubs, which I really like.

I would stick that I/O in, bet you like it better.

We are discussing a WRX Iowa outing, will keep you posted.

Thanks man, can say the same about yours.  I finally hit a 17 M1 driver this weekend, and while I did not like it as much as the Epic, to me it was a dramatic improvement over the 2016 version.  I see you have the "manly" version of the shaft...lol.

I really want to hear what you think about those irons.  Have you had any time on course yet?

lol yea the shaft is incredible -- both in the driver and the fairway. the irons are some of the best to come out of TM in quite some time in my view. feel great, long irons (3,4,5,6) want to go straight and hold a great line, the shorter irons (7,8,9,P) are workable and feel simply incredible (even with a 'cavity'). i hit 12/18 GIR the first time out with them but, could've easily been 15/18 -- 3 were on the fringe/light rough around the green.  i have to get the short irons bent a few *'s stronger tho b/c they're launching a tad higher than i prefer -- and there's a distinct gap from the 7 and 6 irons since that's where my 770/750 split happens. all in all i'm truly glad i picked these up.

So Warrick, now that you have had a little time with the Modus shafts in your irons, would love to hear your thoughts now.

I have been a bit inconsistent with iron play this spring, but have only played in temps above 50 a few of the 15+ rounds I have played.  It has been difficult to get grooved, and find the tempo I am looking for.

I found something Sunday on our second 18, shot 6 over with 3 doubles.  I was trying to be too smooth with the change over, and found getting back to a bit more aggressive started to show me some things I really, really liked.

Definitely a better feel in the wedges than the 130 c-taper.

I am excited about everything in the bag.

Also had 28 putts with the new flatstick on Sunday afternoon.

I started to have some inconsistencies with the 5W, going back to the trusted set up of the 3H-4H, 2 new Epic hybrids on the way, 5W out/sold.

Modus 125 are a dream, have them in 5, all the way through LW.

finishing my supply of 2016 TPX, then moving to TP5X.

Warrick, did you go with the 125 wedge shafts or just the same shafts through your irons?

Planning to reshaft my 770s...dumping the modus 130.  I'm nervous about the 125 though, as I'm a long time Ctaper guy.

Nope, just have the normal 125 PW shaft in my wedges.

I was nervous also, but seem to have found my match.  I absolutely love them.

My only concern with the 125s is that people seem to somehow compare them to dynamic gold and Ctapers.....not sure how that is possible as DG and Ctapers seem so different to me.  

I might re-shaft one club and see how it goes before doing the entire set.

I am sure everyone has missed updates in my awesome thread....lol.

Not a lot has changed, added the Epic hybrids in June to replace the 815's, really liking them.

I shot a career low 69 on July 4th, and am playing my best ever. I would say around a 5 on home course, but game does not travel that great, working on it.  I would guess I am more like a 7-8 realistically, but am moving in the right direction.  I struggle with green reading, have an astigmatism, and bad depth perception (Laser rangefinder has helped).  When I get on undulated greens, I struggle a bit, again, working on it.

I sold a ton of back up equipment and some clothes, had a little over 1k in PP, so decided to get another set of my irons/wedges, new putter, just dabbling with new shafts, and wedge gaping. I had to spend the PP funds before my wife bought a new fridge....ha.

New JPX 900F - 5-P - T7 48/8, 53/10, 58/12 - PX LZ 6.5 SSx1 - NDMC blk/wht
New Odyssey Red 7s - 34" black shaft- Flatso Mid - will be tanked with 2-25g o-works weights.

Winter project is to send all 4 Epics to Continental, for matte black, with carbon fade, removal of speed steps and chevron.  I will be playing the same clubs next year.
