    I had the tempo hybrids but sent them back. The leather started cracking after 3 rounds. At first the tongue was uncomfortable but soon softened. Great looking shoes just not built to last. Back to FJ for me.

    I work in golf shoe sales and we received our shipment last week. Everyone in department agrees that theses shoes are not good. They are too heavy, too rigid and are narrow to say the least. Better of going with Adidas or Ecco.

      Too Narrow and you are suggesting going with Adidas???? I am an E width and going a half size up was just fine, as far as rigidity the soles are constructed this way for a reason (look more into the product) got my Temp Tours last week and have played 2 rounds on them….I’m very satisfied from a comfort and performance standpoint
      I’m a 1 handicap and play 3-5 times per week

      as far as price for those commenting below….name a manufacturer whose top end shoe is much less than UA

    I bought the Drive Ones last year. I was really hesitant given the price point but they are above and beyond the best shoes I’ve ever worn. They provide comfort and stability and what I find to be most important during the summer months, breathability. Not to mention, I was putting new spikes in them last week and it hit me how little wear they showed. I highly recommend them. UA makes great products.

    If they are anything like they’re every day tennis shoes, they will poorly constructed, with poor engineering that results in the most uncomfortable shoe I’ve ever worn.

    The prices for golf shoes are laughable, especially these. The markup from the sweatshop must be over 1000%. And they want to grow the game to the middle and lower classes. ROFL.

      They’re not. They’re extremely comfortable. At least mine last year’s limited batch are.

      Agreed. I’d love to try these but price is a but steep for UA first go round. Also need more colors. While I do love black golf shoes one can only have so many and I’m not a fan of white. Too dirty too quickly in my neck of the woods.

      Agreed on price. The premier shoe seems about right but a water resistant spikeless for $160?! No thanks, I’ll take my water proof guarenteed shoe

What are the advantages and disadvantages of using HL irons? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the benefits and downsides of playing HL (High Launch) irons. WRXer ‘jjfcpa’ kicks off the thread, asking:

“Just looking for some feedback on the advantages and disadvantages of the HL model irons that Ping (G430), Taylormade (Qi10), JPX923, and Callaway (AI Smoke HL) are now offering?

If you are a slower swing speed golfer (senior primarily I’m guessing), would you consider one of these?”

And our members have been having their say 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.

  • POKeefe: “Advantage and Disadvantage: They go higher, fly straighter, and are chunkier which can be confidence inspiring. This is ideal for a lower speed player who struggles to get the ball airborne but bad for a higher speed player who can easily balloon golf balls.”
  • Roejye: “I think it’s the ability to give you more launch. Yeah, a lower lofted iron will give you more distance, but how predictable is that if that distance is based on roll-out. Theoretically, giving someone with slightly slower swing speed with the other characteristics of a GI/SGI iron would help launch the ball better.”
  • erock9174: “I don’t think there are any disadvantages to HL irons.  It’s all about providing a fitting need.  Not everybody needs super strong lofts to win the distance battle.  While I am not quite old yet…do turn 48 this year, I have always hit the ball the same distance pretty much since I started golf 30 yrs ago.  I just have a nice easy deliberate swing and try to keep the ball in play with accuracy.  So anything stronger than a 26* 6i never works for me.  I think that is helpful going into club purchases for me.  Also hollowbody irons rarely work for me either.  I seem to generate more height and spin with cavity back irons.”
