Does anyone know if the lie angle on these can be bent rather than only adjusted via the adapter?

Picked up a GAPR Lo 2 Head only killer deal last week that arrived yesterday.  I took the shaft our of my M1 hybrid just to see how it it looked and man that is a sharp looking club IMO.  Not overly huge at address but it is a bit bulkier then the P790 and UDI no doubt.  Now starts the search for the perfect shafts to test in this next spring.  I already have a HZURDZ Black and I'm going to look for a couple more low spin / launch shafts to put adapters on.

So, is the GAPR mid like replacing the 5W? While I love my F7 5W sometimes I hook it off the planet and then just end up never hitting it because of the hooker thoughts in my head. Wondering if these are less prone to the lefts.

honestly, you might have to have it bent flat. if flatter, it will toe down easier and keep it from going left so often.

i know this b/c i've had a tendency, with hybrids only, that they like going left-- and i've had a few of mine bent 1-2* flat and it's done the trick.

Good idea. Ive had te same issue with hybrids and Titleist H2's usually let me configure them anti left and help.

When I was fitted by TM the only way the fitter could give me a flatter lie was to try 1/2" shorter shaft, work a treat

The shape and offset of the mid make it a hook machine. Might be great for your weekend slicer. Otherwise junk.

790 is the best club tm has made in a decade.

Agreed

Agreed...but: I hit both in the 2 iron. The 790 looks better to me (I like thin topline, etc) and feels great when you hit it correctly, BUT, the GAPR is definitely more forgiving. Heel and toe, high and low all will not kill the shot like the 790. If you consisently hit the sweetsopt then 790 is the way to go, if not, GAPR is the way. This is just my opinion, I only play to a 7 with 105 ish driver speed if that gives any indication. At my SS or higher, both are easy to put in the bag. Distance was about the same, maybe GAPR slightly longer, but dispersion was way tighter with GAPR and mishits is not even close. Too bad the price point is high at $250, such is the cost of being a club ho.

Note this is for the GAPR Lo, Mid and Hi were too chunky looking

I have the Lo #2 with a premium shaft and I can hit a baby fade all day with it 240-250. On wetter days I have the loft up a little to 18*. On windy days its down to 17* or less. I absolutely love it. It is forgiving and if you hit it out of the center it feels awesome.

I play the 3 lo with a Hzrdus Yellow and feel very confident with it.  Much more so than a hybrid.  I can get 240 out of it off the tee on my best efforts but even off the toe it goes pretty good

playing the 2 lo which I had built by TM  1/2 longer and HZRDUS 6.0.  Easy to find fairway off the tee and giving me a nice mid high flight and up to 235 yds.  Confidence inspiring.  What I did not expect was to be able to hit it offf the deck instead of my hybrid which I tend to hook.   So impressed I ordered a GAPR HI 4 and am waiting on it to arrive.  Also picked up a high toe wedge and love it but that’s another topic
