Published

on

Want to play the same iron shafts Si Woo Kim used to win The 2017 Players? Now is your chance.

In our forums, KBS is giving away 5 full sets (8 shafts maximum) of its new $-Taper irons shafts, which are designed for those who want a mid-launch and low spin. Kim Braly, Head of R&D for KBS, says the shafts provide a better feel but maintain workability for those who want the control. Their bend profiles are similar to its KBS Tour shafts, except they have elongated step patterns to generate more stability.

For the giveaway, KBS is offering the $-Taper shafts in 2 finishes: Black PVD and Classic KBS Chrome, and winners will have the option of the following flex/weights: (R-flex, 110 grams), (R+ Flex, 115 grams), (S-Flex, 120 grams), (S+ Flex, 125 grams), (X-Flex, 130 grams).

Here’s how the giveaway works:

  • Follow KBS Shafts on Twitter and/or Facebook

Best draw-biased fairway woods? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing draw-biased fairway woods. WRXer ‘CGallery’ kicks off the thread, saying

“I have been struggling to find a fairway wood that I have liked but have never tried a draw-biased one. I struggle over fading the ball at points, so it could be a good fit, but the trouble is I can’t seem to find one that has a heavy enough shaft in a stiff flex used to try… any models you have tried would be appreciated!”

And our members have been sharing 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.

  • 14max: “Both the SFT and Mavrik Max have been pleasantly draw-biased for me…”
  • William70: “Cobra f6. That thing sets up so closed that you could hook/draw it without even trying.”
  • Ian-500: “My Max D 3 wood is very slightly draw-biased, but in all the reviews I’ve read/seen then as others have said, the Ping SFT looks to be the most draw biased.”
  • dMeeksDC: “If you want one that is easy to draw but does not look closed, Ping g425 SFT is your winner. Plus, it’s adjustable to get it just right. If you don’t mind a little offset (instead of looking closed, which I can’t look at), trust me that the B21 is the best draw-biased fairway wood Callaway offers. Looks great, sounds great, goes a mile. I don’t mind offset. It performs really well.”

Best wedges for a newer golfer? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been talking wedges. WRXer ‘Luckydutch’ is new to the sport and is uncertain as to how to approach choosing his wedges, kicking off the thread, saying:

“I’ve just treated myself to a set of improvement irons running 5-GW. The GW is a 48 degree, so it occurs to me that I now need to think about wedges. What’s the conventional wisdom when it comes to buying wedges as a relatively new golfer? I can’t imagine there’s huge value in getting fitted since I wouldn’t have a clue what grinds etc. I like.

Do I go for just one chipping wedge to begin with then add to it over time? Or am I better off getting a set now? I suppose the advantage of buying one is it saves me some money in the short term. The disadvantage being I’m never going to learn how to use a 60 degree if I don’t get one, right?”

And our members have been sharing their thoughts and 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.

  • iknowbagu: “KISS – Keep it simple, stupid. This really should apply to all of us, but it holds especially true for beginners. Find something you like the looks/feel of, and then get matching. That could be 52/58, 52/56/60, 54/60, whatever. Over time you’ll learn what you like, what you don’t, etc., and you can mix and match from there. But until you to a point where you are very specific with your wants/needs, there is no need to reinvent the wheel here. Only technical thing you really need to know is that bounce is your friend.”
  • rjdivis: “I would say something like the Cleveland CBX 2 wedges would be a good place to look, or something similar. From a setup standpoint, I would go with either a 52* / 56*or just a 54. Learning your distances with the set GW will guide you on what lofts you will need. I always like to keep things simple and, as said above, stay away from the high lofted wedges. You don’t need a 58 or 60 at this time. You can always add down the road.”
  • rsballer10: “If you are a beginner, I’d get a 56 (doesn’t have to be new) and learn to hit all the shots with that club. Depending on the loft of your PW you may want a 50/52, but I’d honestly keep the # of wedges to a minimum starting out. As you get better/more consistent you can add more wedges to the bag. Even to this day, I use my 54 degree for almost everything, and my 60 is a get out of jail club. If I was starting out I’d just get a 56 and dump the 60 altogether.”
  • Macklessdaddy: “Local Costco and grab the Kirkland set, 52 56 60 for less than 200.”

Favorite brand of fairway woods – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been talking fairway woods. WRXer ‘New_Guy’ is on the hunt for a new 5 and 7-wood and wants to know what brand our members consider to be the best when it comes to FWs. Our members have been sharing their thoughts in our forum, with plenty of companies getting a mention.

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.

  • layrs14: “I’ve played Cobra fairways for a couple of years (F9, SZ, Radspeed) and really like them. Cobra tends to have a real crack like sound compared to the Titleist and Callaway woods I have hit. This year I tried out a TSi2 7w, based entirely on high praise for the TSi fairways and ability to adjust loft and lie, something the Cobra line lacks. Lofted down to 20.25*, and it’s been great. Epic Max is also solid as long as you don’t mind the bonded hosel.”
  • PEIGolfer: “Most consistent I’ve played through the lines has been Titleist and TEE, thus what gets that spot in the bag.”
  • Lasorcier: “I’ll go with Mizuno. I am very high on my STz 3-wood. I wish they made a 5-wood.”
  • pgatw: “Ping, hard to beat the 425 series, especially if need them set to a flat lie.”
