    My handicap is 10.
    I currently play the Callaway Chrome Soft
    I would benefit from a lower compression ball but I like the feel for greenside shots.
    I would like to respond to the test.

    This ball costs less than the Pro-V1 but performs better and is the same 3-layer urethane. Why spend the money when this one is better?

What GolfWRXers are saying about the best small 3-woods

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing 3-woods. WRXer ‘ewaldbeukes’ is on the hunt for a small-headed 3-wood to hit low bullets with, and our members have been putting forward their suggestions 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.

  • 03trdblack: “Still, to this day, hard to beat the Tour Edge Exotics CB2 fairway wood for looks, size, performance, etc. Are you looking for something current? The Cobra SZ tour you mentioned is quite small by today’s standards and is a fantastic option. You may also want to look at the Exotics EXS Pro 3 wood.”
  • Mitchell: “Find yourself an old TaylorMade 300 tour fairway- Titanium construction with tungsten sole weight and small rails/relief to sole- more recent alternatives would be anything from the Tour Edge Exotics CB model series or Cobra F7 and F8 plus models.”
  • half lung: “Taylormade M2 tour. Love that club!”
  • MPAndreassi: “The Callaway XR16 Pro line was great to me and very under-appreciated.”

‘Play a big driver. Why not big irons?’ – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the case for big irons. WRXer ‘2Down’ plays a Ping G410+ driver and has recently put Ping’s G710 irons in the bag, saying:

“Wondered how many play a large headed driver and play a draw or fade off the tee but when they pull an iron it’s some blade size thing so they can “work” the ball.

Recently I put G710 in the bag and answered my question for myself. They feel different for sure, but I am quickly adapting to only bringing the putter with me to the green.”

Our members have been discussing the combination in our forums.

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.

  • Itsjustagame: “Personal preference but big irons tend to have more bounce, more offset and wider soles some or all of which may not suit a particular player.”
  • Fairway14: “Driver is played from a lie with the ball sitting on a tee, irons are played from a variety of lie types.”
  • J13: “They don’t really make “big” irons for players. Most have offset low CG for high launch, and super strong lofts.”
  • LeoLeo99: “I love my big irons. G400. Best I’ve ever used.”

What GolfWRXers are saying about using a 60+ degree wedge

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the use of 60+ degree wedges. WRXer ‘chipa’ plays a hilly course with small and hard greens and has recently ordered an off-brand 68 degree wedge to see if he can pick up 5-6 lost strokes. Our members have been commenting on the logic of using 60+ degree wedges in our forums.

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.

  • PhlashPhace: “I recently made the switch from a 58 to a 60 because I was losing strokes around the green. It took me some getting dialed in from 95-100 with the 54, but now I’m much more effective around the greens, and one of the things I didn’t anticipate was I’m much better from 95 yards with the 54 because it hits and stops rather than generating tons of spin.”
  • MPAndreassi: “My home course small, fast and sloping greens. When I play there, I carry a 64 degree wedge to help pop it up out of the thick rough around the greens, but when I play other courses I drop the 64.”
  • Fairway14: “Cleveland RTX 64* wedge. Good for 50 to 70 yard carry shots.”
  • Phil Major: “I still carry Callaway original PM Grind 64* for those shots and short side bunkers. I can’t live without my 64* wedge! You can close it a little bit to get more spins. I never need to play it open, just straight or close it.”
