for those interested the USKG TS3 has launched which also means there is a ton of the old TS in the outlet if anyone is interested.  Just an FYI.

Looks like the TS3 is replacing the old TS line.  If I know anything about club manufacturers they will help you hit it farther and straighter.  Slight change in weighting scheme from previous version as well.

Looking through the specs for the 51" series, it looks like the lofts have slightly changed in the irons from the previous TS line.  I didnt make it through all of the irons and didnt look beyond the 51" series, but 8,9, and PW are all 1 degree weaker than the previous TS Line and the Current UL line.....i.e. TS3 8 iron is 41 deg, Prev. TS and UL series are 40.

Someone will get the TS3 and not like them because they don't hit as far as the previous series.  Bound to happen, even if it is a 1 yard difference, because they don't understand lofts.

My sons buddy thinks he hits his irons further than my son.  My son hits his 8 iron (39 degrees) 125.  His buddy hits his 8 iron (34.5 degrees) 130.  Thing is, his buddies clubs are 4 degrees stronger on every iron.  His dad bought him new 52,56,60 wedges for Christmas.  He doesn't understand why there is such a big gap in distance in his PW which is 44 degrees and his gap wedge which is 52 degrees.

It's obvious that any kid not playing TS3's will have zero chance at the Worlds in Pinehurst.  :yes:

I'm going to research the TS3 wedges a bit, but in the meantime If anyone wants to get rid of a 52* TS wedge please let me know.  I need it asap.

This is right.  Thankfully my son isn't at the distance who ego stage yet with his buddies.  I don't really care about the loft specs as long as we can properly gap, but more interested by the progressive weight in the 51" series , old TS -"10% lighter", new TS3- "15% lighter".  Ive mentioned earlier, but moving from 48" UL, we have a 51" TS(old version) that we occasionally pulll out to test) and it just seems too heavy still.  I know there is a learning curve period for getting used to New heavier clubs when jumping up- we had it from 45"UL to 48" UL- but the new Wright class for the 51" makes since as that is the first height class in the TS.

I will as soon as I get my refund back on my credit card for the Powerbilt Junior Blue irons I ordered. They are only 11.84597% lighter.
