Debating doing a 705 5/6 1* weak, 503 7/8, and 303 9/pw. Just picked up the personal wedges. Had a used set of 303 and loved the feel. So just want a new set and I just lose to much distance on the longer irons.

After a discussion might do full 503 or p3 sets. No combos.

I picked up a full set of p3s for now. After that I might do the 705 5/6 503 7-pw. Or all 503s.

Played a couple epon combos

Nothing better than a full set of 302s IMO

there were some  hearty  discussions a  few yrs back  about  af tour/302 combo sets  .
I was close to doing that  myself but the aftours  we re just too  tempting as a set.
so I got  both sets ourtight
the kicker was the transition form the 6/7 iron . ( iwas going the 3-pw route so was thinking to swap over at the 6)
but the added goose neck of the 302s made it too much of  distraction to look at. As a whole set its fine but when the set diverges so much it wasn't  relaxing  to view.

bets idea,

get both sets.

You really need 3 or 4 full sets of epon depending g on your game...I use the 302s when I want to feel the caramel apple and my swing is on or at a short course where I need spin.  I play the P3 (400 series) just because they're sexy and fun to launch.  The 503s are just real good all around...nice my size, great iron.  The 705s have become my gamers primarily because they've got my best shafts but also they're lasers....may let the P3 set go...will see...

Wasn't sure I'm good enough for 302s. Might have to keep my eyes open for a set though.

Don't...I need another :)

Really, they're surprisingly forgiving. I score better with them than I did with my Ping shovels

Whatís your handicap?


I did a 901 driving iron, 503 4/5, 302 6-p and would sometimes throw a personal Pw in there instead.  Went back to 302 rather quickly, biggest issue was the change in sole width.

I'm around a 10. Usually shoot mid 70s to low 80s. But long irons through pw are my weakness. Think I ended up a 4 in golf league. Where I can go froom even par to 6 over.

Had a mizuno jpx 900 hotmehotmetal/forged combo, went all 900 hotmetal, had epon 303 dg pro s300 which I really liked but was losing a lot of distance with the 6 iron on up. Tried the p3 but shafts were to light with mci 80. Now just got a set of jpx 900 forged with project x lz 5.5.

Is it still possible to get new sets of the 302? Guess I could do 303 with project x lz 5.5 I love hitting the 303. They felt great.

You were losing distance on the longer clubs or the shorter?  I donít think the 302 are much more forgiving than the 303 and less so than P3, maybe the 500 series top to bottom.  I believe the older ones without be undercut cavity are the way to go .

Anyone buy off of Yahoo auction Japan site? Sets on there seem to be in better shape. A couple possible 503 and 705 sets on there.
