I've learned a lot and made some solid internet buds
I've learned that I thought I knew a lot about golf but some fella's here are next level
I now have about 230-300 clubs in the man cave and probably 40 driver, fwy and shaft pulls as well
Tinkering is fun, you can find unicorns .. I HAVE DONE IT. One exception .. the 7 shafts I have tried in my i500 six iron with ZERO success
(PS I do have a RIP Beta 60x ... in white .. on the way from the bay). And last week I tossed some Ozik's into rapture J spec mid irons, and I am still on the prowl for more graphite shafts for my short irons ....
Got to love the WRX, like u said so many here with next level knowledge.
No shortage of clubs/shafts etc cardoustie, keep up the good work.
Wow, your pretty persistent on the i500's good luck in your search. I'm waiting for a set of i500's [i110 steelfibers] I had delivered to my brother in Texas, hope they work well for me.
What model of Ozik's did you try in the JSpec raptures? I have some program 130's in some BC Ping Zing's.
I recently had recoil 110's installed in my JV2's, friggin awesome combination.
The 5,6,7 JV2's have been just great, the 6 iron has been the best 6 iron I have ever hit. Nothing wrong with the rest of the set either. Just like trying new things. Glad to hear someone else is singing the J spec rapture iron praises. Yours the first generation?
See sig for Oziks .. 90g pulls from failed driving irons
My rapture J's are gen1 .. I only have the 3-6
My i500 started w steelfiber 110 x ss 1x
Ssx2 in s55 is my new sweet baby J moment
So the Oziks were .370 tip hybrid shafts?
Obviously your having great success with the JS 3-6.
So your going to try Ssx2 in the i500's?
Kinda funny I was searching x-100 Ss and Ssx2 last night. I have some x-100 Ti's that I was loving last year, but getting old so it was a no go with them this year. Hate to sell them cheap so I was thinking of trying the Ssx2 on some spare heads. I keep wanting to replace the s55's I sold off to a friend who show's me every time out what a mistake that was. Ever shot I hit from my old 55's seem to just hit better than anything else I brought with me that day. Funny how that works.
I used to love the rapture J three and 4 irons .. until I met Callaway Apex hybrids .. no comparison
i110 SF's ... SS x 2 into my s55's
. I only have the i500 six iron, not the set. Bought as a tester and glad I did. Feel and performance not there for me compared to my s55's
I think my next project is my PX LZ 6.0's into my Bridgestone blades. The shafts have iomics on them already and I have some cool ferrules that need to be working and not peacocking
FWIW - the j15 mb's have the old satin PX 6.5's in them and I'm not in love with the feel (even though they look wicked)
I used to have the 3 & 4 reg V2 irons, I didn't get along with those. I have tried the Apex hybrid at Golf town when they first came out, I thought they were pretty good, just never bought any. Might have to reacquaint myself with them. Thx for the reminder.
The S55's with the SF 110's would be pretty sweet, thinking I'm going to need some. I may have jumped the gun on the i500's, seems like alot of guy's getting rid of there's. Was thinking a V2/S55 combo set might be fun to try out. I have an old 55 chev truck so I'm very fond of anything 55. I turned 55 this year, so that means I will need a set for sure. lol, impressive that ole Bubba has played them for numerous years.
Let us know how the pretty Stones go with the LX 6.0's. I have a spare set of the LX 6.0's, got some MP 60 and Z101 heads looking for some shafts, might have to have a go myself. I had some MP-15's with the PX 6.5's a few years ago, I hit those so straight but like a fool sold em. My old set of 55's my friend has now were upgraded by him to the PX 6.5's. I kinda wish he would sell em back to me, thinking the 6.5's would be too stout for me these days though, but For some reason I hit those very well, not sure how and why though. SFiber's are the way to go, glad yours are working well.
