I'm sold.  So I bought all 3.  Bought a 3 in the Lo, 4 in the Mid and 5 in the High.   I like my 790 UDI but after hitting the 3 Lo it was so much better.  I was easily another 15 yards longer and it just felt better.

The problem was what to do with the other two so I bought both.  I found that from 220 the mid is great for me off the fairway and easier to hit than my M4 Hybrid 3 and from the rough the Gapr hi is so much easier to hit.    So far I've put my 5wood and my 4 & 5 iron away and the GAPRs are in their place.

Interesting to hear that. I just put the P790 UDI in the bag and I have a hard time believing just about anything could knock it out of the bag. I'm definitely interested in hearing how many others have the same type of experience that you do.

I loved the 790 UDI just can't see keeping it after the 3 LO.  That thing goes a mile and feels a little better.  As far as the others go they seem to serve a different purpose for me.  The 4 Mid works great for me if I land in the fairway and need a club to get me 250.   The 5 Hi is my 220+ out of the rough club.  I probably won't carry the 3 Lo as often as the other 2 that will stay in the bag all the time but I have a couple courses I play that it will be perfect off the tee.

The 790s are by far the best clubs I have ever hit.  I had some PXG 0311s but had to park them after I hit the 790s.

I went to a TM fitting at their TPL. Needed to redo my top end of bag between driver and 4i.

We hit the GAPRs...theyre junk overall.

All of them are Absolutely the ugliest clubs ive ever seen.

The LO was the closest to being able to make it into the bag if i was forced to pick. but realistically the 790UDI or a 790 3i was much better for me over the LO. If anyone is considering a LO strongly look at a 790udi or 790 3i instead.

The 790 has less offset, thinner topline, and felt amazing.

The LO felt worse and looked terrible in comparison unless you like offset.

790 won in performance as well.

All of the GAPRs felt like junk for the most part. With the Exception being the HIGH. The high has a hybrid kind of feel that made it tolerable. The mid is literally so terrible to look at. Imagine the worlds biggest most offset SGI you can imagine. Now double the offset and size...thats a gapr mid.

In the end we went m3 3w and m3 5w and a UDI 3iron. The 790 UDI was pretty close to replacing the 5w but realistically I've got my shots covered without it. If i played baked out fairways id likely get a 2udi.

In conclusion:

The gapr low was just ok in performance but looked and felt terrible. The 790s are a better option to the low unless you need offset. to the member who said its a rebranded adams dhy...youre kinda right except the dhy was legendary...i wish i never got rid of mine Absolutely a rocket launcher.

The gapr mid was literally horrible in every aspect.

The high was also meh.

Overall id say theyre junk. Simply because in the LO you have 790s as an option that are better.  In the high you have an m3 or m4 hybrid that were better.

The mid was the only unique club but man it was terrible to look at, worst feeling club ive ever hit. And the performance waa subpar for what i expected.

No wait the LO isn't bad.

No wait the HIGH isn't bad, but the MID sucks.

I think I'm just going to wait and see one for myself when I can.  No preorder on this one as the reviews are all over the board on these clubs so this is defiantly a hit it before you buy it club in my mind.

I hit them all at my local Golf Galaxy recently, and thought they felt pretty good. If I were to get one, it would be the mid.  I could still flight it low if need be, and liked the flight I was getting out of it.  I was not a fan of the stock shaft at all.  Way too light.

Tempted by the 3-mid.  I want something that flies a bit lower as a sometimes alternative to my 3h, but my swing speed is probably just a bit too slow to really benefit from a 3i.  So the mid seems like a great inbetween for a hybrid and a traditional long iron that will be a bit more forgiving.

That all being said, I don't really need new clubs, and they're pretty ugly.  Maybe if I can catch one on clearance in a year or two I'll consider it.

In the end we went m3 3w and m3 5w and a UDI 3iron. The TP UDI was pretty close to replacing the 5w but realistically I've got my shots covered without it. If i played baked out fairways id likely get a 2udi.

The gapr low was ok...to the member who said its a rebranded adams dhy...youre kinda right except the dhy was legendary...i wish i never got rid of mine Absolutely a rocket launcher. The gapr was meh.

So to recap.....

All the GAPR's are junk.

No wait the LO isn't bad.

All the GAPR's are junk.

No wait the HIGH isn't bad, but the MID sucks.

No wait the GAPR LO was OK.

The GAPR is meh.


That about cover it?
LOL

Exactly how I read it lol

... Anytime I read clubs or shafts are "junk" or "garbage" I stop reading. Every club made today is a quality product. Might not fit you, might feel terrible in your opinion and might not produce the performance you are looking for. But for every SGI hater, there is a golfer in love with their very forgiving irons. I have a 20* TP UDi I really like and I am currently using a 17* Exotics CBX Ironwood but I am very interested in the GAPR Lo.

Debating between adding the Lo or p790 UDI 2 to my bag. Need to hit the Lo but so many mixed reviews.

Iím not a fan of them but I understand while some folks like them. I guess thatís why fitting is so important for everything.

Anyone know if you could either strip the teal color from the screw or get a non-teal replacement screw?

Went to our local PGASS yesterday and they had GAPR Demo’s in all 3 heads and I was impressed.

The Mid and Hi look much better in person then I expected.  They hit nice but since I was not really in the market for one of these so I only hit them a couple times.  I have an M1 4 hybrid that I really like and I don’t see the GAPR Mid or Hi knocking that out of the bag.

The GAPR Lo on the other hand will be in the bag come spring.  It looks perfect at address to me.  Much cleaner and thinner in person than the online pics make it look.  It does remind me of the older Adams stuff but with a better look to it at address.  They had the 3 Lo to hit but I will order this in a 2.  I hit the ball high anyway and want a lower ball flight with this club.  I was not a fan of the stock shaft and I think that was part of the reason for the extra height I was getting with the 3.  But with the adapter system on these it will be much easier to test and swap shafts from the assortment I have at home.

For what it’s worth the guy at PGASS said pretty much any of the big box golf shops will have a few of these on hand for demo so if you want to see them just stop in.

They are rumored to ship early to mid OCT so I’m just going to wait and pick one up over the winter.  By that time here in MN our season is pretty much done for the year.

I was farting around at the golf shop and saw a couple of these GAPR's sitting around so I grabbed one not knowing much about it.  hit it on the trackman...

Hit the 3 mid about 220.  Shockingly straight.  I was impressed how easy it was to hit.  My one miss still went about 195, which isn't bad considering how poorly I hit it.  I hit my 17* hybrid about 225 so hitting this 18* degree semi iron 220 was pretty impressive.  The downside is they were stingers.  Coming out at 11-13* I believe.  So great for tee shots or rolling up to the green but not something that'd do well carrying 205-210 and holding the green.  

Overall I was kinda impressed considering my first impression was "what is this ugly club"

I went to a TM fitting at their TPL. Needed to redo my top end of bag between driver and 4i.

We hit the GAPRs...theyre junk overall.

All of them are Absolutely the ugliest clubs ive ever seen.

The LO was the closest to being able to make it into the bag if i was forced to pick. but realistically the 790UDI or a 790 3i was much better for me over the LO. If anyone is considering a LO strongly look at a 790udi or 790 3i instead.

The 790 has less offset, thinner topline, and felt amazing.

The LO felt worse and looked terrible in comparison unless you like offset.

790 won in performance as well.

All of the GAPRs felt like junk for the most part. With the Exception being the HIGH. The high has a hybrid kind of feel that made it tolerable. The mid is literally so terrible to look at. Imagine the worlds biggest most offset SGI you can imagine. Now double the offset and size...thats a gapr mid.

In the end we went m3 3w and m3 5w and a UDI 3iron. The 790 UDI was pretty close to replacing the 5w but realistically I've got my shots covered without it. If i played baked out fairways id likely get a 2udi.

In conclusion:

The gapr low was just ok in performance but looked and felt terrible. The 790s are a better option to the low unless you need offset. to the member who said its a rebranded adams dhy...youre kinda right except the dhy was legendary...i wish i never got rid of mine Absolutely a rocket launcher.

The gapr mid was literally horrible in every aspect.

The high was also meh.

Overall id say theyre junk. Simply because in the LO you have 790s as an option that are better.  In the high you have an m3 or m4 hybrid that were better.

The mid was the only unique club but man it was terrible to look at, worst feeling club ive ever hit. And the performance waa subpar for what i expected.


Need you to write more negative words in your next post about these (/s).......your problem might have been the Indian and not the arrow. Took my Lo to the lesson tee yesterday and was spanking 240 yard bullets. And the numbers on trackman were gorgeous.
