Trackman Showdown: GBB Epic Sub Zero, M1, M2 and LTD Pro Drivers

WRXer TollBros set up an exceedingly thorough five-man test of the hottest drivers on the market, painstakingly analyzing looks, sound/feel, shot pattern/dispersion and performance. A truly exceptional post, and certainly in a must read if you’re in the market for a new driver this year. See the thread. 

Stenson’s surprising new weapon

GBB_Epic

Henrik Stenson parted ways (at least temporarily) with his life-saving/money-making Callaway Diablo 3 wood. In its stead: the Iceman dropped a Callaway GBB Epic in the bag. Not surprisingly, WRXers had much to say about one of the most significant fairway wood change in recent golf history. See the thread.

Your first set of clubs?

Ah, a stroll down Memory Lane. Chazb asks, “What was your first set of clubs?” Predictably, the responses are great and the heady brew of nostalgia flows freely. Sam Snead Signatures, boxed sets from Sears… just an awesome look at where it all began for our community of equipment enthusiasts (image c/o EmperorPenguin). See the thread.

The WRXiest bag

wrx-wedge-featured

If “WRXiest” as an adjective isn’t a thing, it darn well should be. Our resident statistician, Richie Hunt, is actually the author of this thread to determine the WRXiest possible bag setup. Rich’s suggestions include the venerable Callaway Steelhead and a Byron Morgan putter. To see what the rest of the community thinks, check out the thread.

The coolest golfers come from this state…

Plenty of room for debate, here. North Butte kicks off this thread by asking which state the coolest (professional) golfers come from. His suggestion? Texas, thanks to the likes of Hogan, Nelson, Trevino, Crenshaw, Kite, Jimmy Demaret and Jackie Burke. As a Pennsylvanian, I’m obligated to remind everyone that the King was from the Keystone state. Anyway, see the thread for plenty of back-and-forth.

    As Costco has proved with it’s Kirkland ball, getting good playing golf gear does not have to cost an arm and a leg…maybe people will start looking into some of the companies that offer very playable equipment at very reasonable prices…one for sure is Golfworks…..think about it you can pay $900 for a custom fit set of irons from the big boys or maybe less then $400 for a set of custom fit irons from a company like GolfWorks and in 3 years they will both be worth the same about $25 dollars….

Do I need a 5-iron? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the need for a 5-iron. WRXer ‘DarkAirPlane’ is new to the sport and kicks off the thread, saying:

“Beginner here. I would like to purchase a set of 2021 T300 irons. I’m thinking I should order 6-W1 in order to be somewhat close to “traditional” lofts. Do I really need the T300 5 iron (23 degree loft)? 23 degree loft is more like a 4 iron. I don’t think I can generate enough speed to hit 23 degrees longer than the t300 6 iron (26 degrees).”

And our members have been sharing their thoughts 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.

  • PNW: “Nothing wrong with doing that at all, and it might help simplify things as you’re starting out. And you’re right that 23* is more like a modern-traditional 4 iron, so it won’t be easy to hit as a beginner even in a Game Improvement set. I would say save yourself the money and go without the 5 iron. As you get better and you figure out you need a club in that spot there will be options at that point to order a single club, either 5 iron or maybe hybrid.”
  • Vater: “It’s refreshing to hear you be honest and smart in talking about what clubs suit you. T300s, questioning needing a 5 iron, swing speed… I’m certain you’re going to enjoy the game and get pretty good through this kind of outlook – instead of forcing yourself into blades and 2 irons…I have a jacked 5 iron at 24 deg, and I put a Recoil shaft into it. With the stock shaft, it was pretty hit or miss, and I’d just go to my hybrid. Now that I’ve made it fit me, it’s useful for the gap between my new hybrid and my 6 iron.”
  • bellken: “No, you don’t need a 5 iron. You can always order a 5 iron later if you decide you want one. I ditched the 5 iron a while ago.”

What is your silliest reason for getting rid of a club? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the worst reasons for ditching a club. WRXer ‘Von3Jack’ kicks off the thread with a beauty, saying:

“I stopped using my Scotty Cameron after my ex-girlfriend dumped me and started dating a guy named Cameron. That was eons ago, and I’m thankfully over that. 

What is your silliest reason for cutting ties with a piece of equipment?”

And our members have been sharing their stories 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.

  • SDG90: “I sold my Nike Vapor Fly Pro irons for $200 after the finish had worn too much for my eyes. Biggest mistake of my life.”
  • hammergolf: “Sound and feel of the i525 irons I just got. Everything else about them is great; I just can’t do the crack/click sound.”
  • bladehunter: “I sold two putters because they went ‘too straight’. I like to feel a little hook in the stroke. These things just burnt right lips all day. True story. I have two witnesses here to me saying that during a round.”
  • cliffy2020: “One short missed putt. That’s all it takes. Can’t get the visual out of my head. Not my fault. Putter sucks. Buh-bye.”

Best Mizuno irons of all time? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing Mizuno irons. WRXer ‘Tomathist’ wants to know what model are considered the best in each iron category, and our members have been sharing their thoughts 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.

  • Mp14forlife: “Mp14. None of this crazy has to have a razor-thin top line nonsense, or crazy has to have zero offset nonsense. Easy to hit for a blade, Little bit of offset and a top line that gives you a bit of confidence and buttery feel! Great clubs!”
  • golf_junkie_85: “MP-33, these are the irons Tiger would’ve used if Titleist didn’t sign him up.”
  • Mirsir69: “Mp-33 has to be up there. All around I would go with the Mizuno pro 223’s though as they’re so versatile and still quite appealing. My only complaint there is I wish they would have forged the 7 iron the same was that they did 8-PW. I don’t mind the 4, 5, & 6 being a little bit hotter. Maybe could’ve gotten away with the 6 being forged as well, but I’m picky about feel.”
