      yes they do. although i cannot find a pic anywhere on the internet, i callaway to confirm they do come with a headcover, (probably the callaway sock), also they come with a 2 gram weight and later this year they will relase a weight set of 4gr 6 gr and 8gr for this haed. these weights are different from the razr fit weight. non compatible.

    Seveni… Actually hybrid’s help a lot of higher handicappers… but for me i’m a scratch player, I find long irons a lot straighter and more accurate.

    To say that any technology or club is going to change a 10 handicap to a 5 handicap is absolute crap. there is no magic bullet in the game of golf other then hours of practice at the range.

    I beleive technology helps… but it doesn’t get you scores… I welcome these clubs because they aren’t full hybrids but will help bridge the gap between hybrid and long irons better…

    Seveni, I can’t help but assume that you misspelled your name thinking about your handicap…because those BH Apex irons were crap and Ben Hogan would have never put his stamp on those were he alive…
    As for the Callaway X Prototype Tour Utility iron, it’s a legit piece of equipment. I’ve hit it a few times, I only wish they’d put it up for sale commercially.
    Maybe you’re the only one in the world besides TW that can hit a 1 iron, but I’d lay odds that if equipped with this, you’d be several percentage points more accurate on the range and on the course.

    @seveni, I presume that you are either joking, or posting this somewhere in the 1950’s.

    In the future there will be things called hybrids which is a hybrid between a wood and an iron, players at all levels will adopt them and start replacing their long irons with them.

    Older generations will scream ‘cheat’ as older generations adopt he stance of guardians of golf, reminiscing about how good players used to be compared to today’s meat heads sluggers. The problem is that they are not the guardians of golf, and as long as clubs conform to USGA and R & A standards then anything is allowed.

    Going back to being a discrace to the nature of the game of golf, why stop at Hogan? He was at a huge technical advantage over, say, Tom Morris who played with balls stuffed with feathers. Surely the marble halls of golf were simply baffled when Gene Sarazen invented the sand iron, but the game moves on.

    With courses getting longer and harder there is a clear correlation with advances in equipment, as the game evolves so do the courses. IsTtiger as good as Jack who knows, is Jack as good as Ben, different eras have different challenges, so you can’t compare. Would golf be boring if it didn’t evolve, yes.

    These guys really are good, and they earn their money week in, week out, things have moved on. Oh and Hogan Apex PC irons, take a Tom Stewart niblick To the range and come back tell me about technology in the Hogan era.

    Just making sure.. Is this a joke by astronomical standards?

    All these models are a disgrace to the nature of game of golf. It’s all about muscles and zero of skill. Take a look at good old Ben Hogan Apex PC irons for comparison. BH irons were all about skill.

    Looks a little like the Razr Forged XF irons.

Most forgiving players irons? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing players irons. WRXer ‘NorthTXGolf’ is on the hunt for some new irons but is putting a priority on forgiveness, and has reached out to fellow members who have been sharing their thoughts and advice on the subject in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Sam217: “i230 has got to be one of the most forgiving players irons available. Cobra King Tour another. Don’t sleep on the New Level 480 DB coming out soon.”
  • RangeBaller: “ZX5/ZX7 and i230 should definitely be in your testing pool.”
  • YAMS49: “Another I210 homie here… Very highly recommended if you want/need spin and a consistent yardage.”
  • golf-RN: “I second the Cobra King Tour irons. I am not the greatest ballstriker by any stretch of the imagination and I find the King Tours very forgiving. Toe strikes might lose 5 or 6 yards with no directional loss. You definitely feel the miss though lol but mishits from the center aren’t punished too hard regarding distance.”

What’s the perfect mini-driver/shaft combo? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing Mini-Drivers and accompanying shafts. WRXer ‘JamesFisher1990’ is about to purchase a BRNR Mini and is torn on what shaft weight to use, and our members have been sharing their thoughts and set ups in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • PARETO: “New BRNR at 13.5. Took it over to TXG (Club Champ but TXG will always rule) in Calgary for a fit. Took the head down to 12, stuck in a Graphite Design AD at 3 wood length and 60g. Presto- numbers that rivaled my G430Max but with waaaaay tighter dispersion. Win.”
  • driveandputtmachine: “Still playing a MIni 300.  The head was only 208, so I ordered a heavier weight and play it at 3 wood length.  I am playing a Ventus Red 70.   I play 70 grams in my fairways.  I use it mainly to hit draws off the tee.  When I combine me, a driver, and trying to hit a draw it does not work out well most of the time.  So the MIni is for that. As an aside, I have not hit the newest BRNR, but the previous model wasn’t great off the deck.  The 300 Mini is very good off the deck.”
  • JAM01: “Ok, just put the BRNR in the bag along side a QI10 max and a QI10 3 wood. A load of top end redundancy. But, I have several holes at my two home courses where the flight and accuracy of the mini driver helps immensely. Mine is stock Proforce 65 at 13.5, I could see a heavier shaft, but to normal flex, as a nice alternative.”

Why Ludvig Aberg is my new favorite player – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing one of the new sensations in the world of golf – Ludvig Aberg. The 24-year-old finished solo second at the Masters a couple of weeks ago, and gained many plaudits, including from several WRXers.

One member, RoyalMustang, took to the forums to explain why Aberg is now their favorite player, saying:

“I loved the way the Ludvig was out there, having a great time, not taking himself or the situation too seriously. Even after the double at 11, he was like “well, that’s golf!” Loose and relaxed: that’s the way to play. It’s obvious he loves what he’s doing, he loves the big moments, and he loves being a part of it all.

Arnold Palmer was viewed that way. Just like Brooks Robinson was forever viewed as not just a great baseball player, but a great human being and friend to Baltimore.”

And our members have been reacting and sharing their positive takes on the young Swede.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • redfirebird08: “Ludvig has a great attitude, a great smile, and a great golf swing.”
  • otto6457: “I’m very lucky to have talked with Ludde several times at the Rawls Course at Texas Tech.  He’s a truly nice guy and very friendly.  Always said hello when we passed each other in the club house and was always smiling. Watching him hit balls on the range was a joy.  He has “that sound” and trajectory to die for.  There were many times he was out on the range in 30+ mph winds just hitting the most beautiful shots that just seemed to ignore the wind.  World class ball striker. And yes……..I am a fan boy.”
  • konklifer: “I like him. In an era of endless waggles and laboring, his swing and pace of play are a joy to watch.
