    I guess there is a reason why LPGA bags are not posted as often. It simply hurts the guys’ ego. The fact is, however, for “very good” players pros and amateurs alike, flexes are more of a preference – mostly the feel/timing and the tendency of the shot/trajectory. In Gee or that junior lady pro will whoop our arse whether she uses the X-flex or L-flex clubs (and us with the professionally fitted whatever flex clubs) every single time anyway. The scorecards actually matter more for the pros who make a living out of golf and not as much for a lot of us. We the regular Joes have the special privilege to enjoy whatever the heck we like. Not all Porsche owners are certified auto mechanics.

    KK – why are you buying other than the R flex clubs from off-the-shelf? About 80% of store stock is R flex, so how are “we” ending up with stiffer? It is simply not true.

      Because not all R flexes are created equal in flex or weight. It is true and you are simply wrong. Good try, though.

    A wundervoll swing and a great bag setup that should be an example for most amateurs

    Most male golfers don’t have as strong a swing as Chun and yet our off-the-shelf stuff is heavier and stiffer. No wonder we struggle with anything longer than a 7 iron.

      SO true! My golf pro actually said most male weekend golfers would achieve more if they would compare themselves more with LPGA players instead of PGA. To prove this point he invited a junior (under 18) ladies golfer that plays in events here in Europe to play a round with us. Everything in her bag was R shaft, highest iron was actually a 6 iron, only her woods were stiff. Her average drives were 200m ( 220 yds). That day we played the guys that usually averaged 240 (265 yds off teh tee) or so they always claimed some how were averaging just around 200/210 m(220 – 230yds) dont know why could have been the wind or nervousness.

      Anyway to cut to the chase though she was hitting second most of the time, she finished 67 (-3) on a course she never saw before. Average score for the guys with S and X flex irons was around 85 (+15). Her game management was tops, putting was v.good and short game was also good.

      When we got the clubhouse she made a quote I will never forget. When you get the course record and they hang your scorecard, its never noted the clubs you used, the shaft or the farthest drive………..just the score. Thats all that matters.

Spotted: SuperStroke Pistol Lock 1.0 & 2.0 grips

Published

on

SuperStroke’s Pistol series is one of its more popular models with an oversized — but still traditional — shape that fits in the hands comfortably.

This week, we spotted a new grip on the practice green at the Cognizant Classic with the “Pistol” name but a little different shape. The traditional pistol shape flares out into the palm on the upper hand and usually has a flat top for your thumb to rest easily. The new grips feature two sizes at the moment, the 1.0 and 2.0, with the latter looking significantly larger.

This new Pistol Lock grip looks to have a similar flat top and flared-out back in the upper hand like the original. The taper to the upper hand looks to start further down the shaft and has a more pronounced shape at the top of the grip. The lower-hand section also might look to have a touch more taper to it, but sometimes these shapes are hard to tell from just photos. Here are the new Pistol Lock grips next to the current Pistol.
