    I’ve been playing golf for 140 years and in my opinion you can’t beat a good hickory shaft, a rusty clubhead and a nice gutta percha ball. All this new-fangled stuff is just smoke and mirrors.

    LOL… looks like we have a case of bait and switch by OEMs claiming their clubs are ‘forged’ when only a small part is forged, if that.
    I remember an OEM claiming their irons were “cold forged” which turned out to be finished steel casting getting mildly stamped to create a slightly ‘forged’ surface only. Sneaky, eh?

    Forged? Where is the 730, that is forged, the rest are “co-forged” as in face only welded to a cast body and internals, not exactly the same thing.

      Yes, the 730 may be a solid forging, but the 790 is falsely presented as fully “forged” on the hosel. Perhaps TM should have “co-forged” or “face-forged” stamped on the hosel, not “forged”. That’s outright deception and you know it.
      And then there’s the “TUNGSTEN” label floating on the back of the 790 clubhead. Hmmm..

      Titleist’s AP2 is co-forged and also has 17-4 stainless on the face but it only says forged. So what’s the big deal? Also the Apex CF, which is the same, with forged body and stainless face but also only says forged.

        If it says “forged” and is not 100% forged then it is a forgery.
        There is no such thing as “co-forged”; that’s just scamming the consumer.
        Plain and simple.

              Face it silly boy. If any part of the club is forged they can call it “forged” Now get some rest, you sound tired.

                That’s deception in package labeling for suckers like you who swallow it blindly and pay for cheap cast steel.

                  No it’s not. Wow, you are having a real problem understanding this.

                  Sep 1, 2017 at 4:04 pm

                  It’s not? But the word ‘forged’ appears on a non-forged clubhead. What’s to understand? It’s a forgery, plain and simple.

    P-790 is fake forged even though they stamp ‘forged’ on the hosel. Only the thin faceplate is forged and the rest of the club head is a steel casting. So it’s like maybe 15% forged and 85% cast steel with a tungsten plug inside.
    If they stamped ‘forged’ on the faceplate that would be legit, but not on the cast hosel. It’s a marketing scam, so why doesn’t GolfWRX expose the scam, particularly for the boys on the main forum.

        Gearheads love their clubheads, and maybe the shaft if it’s pretty.

              What kind of a comment is that. I hope you can get the help you need.

                you need help, a lot of help because you reject the obvious truth.

                  Chipmunk is wrong. Besides the only idiot here are the people that call other people names. Looking right at you silly little chipmunk.

Best looking pear-shaped 3 wood of all time? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing pear-shaped 3 woods. WRXer ‘GolferDude54’ kicks off the thread, saying:

“I was interested in knowing what 3 wood in the present and past do you guys think has had the best looking profile at address and is pear-shaped to boot, i.e. Titleist 906F2. Like you look down at address, and it just oozes of being aesthetically pleasing to your eye. You can even post more than one 3-wood and a list as well if you are torn between this and that.”

And our members have been sharing their best picks 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.

  • Dill Pickelson: “I owned the 906f2 and agree it was a perfect looking 3 wood at address. I currently play the rogue st ls 3 wood and also think it looks great at address. This is exactly how I want a 3 wood to look, no triangular 3 woods, no closed face or slight offsets. I also liked the Ping i20 3 wood. It sat very nicely behind the ball.”
  • hammergolf: “Hard to beat the Titleist PT. Had one in the bag for almost a decade.”
  • Boogs2: “I’ve always liked the Nike T60. Still have one with the steel shaft. Loved how deep-faced it was.”
  • puresurfr: “Titleist 970, love the shape, and it was like a sledgehammer when hit on the screws. Honorable mention for Nike T60.”

Are blades really ‘punishing’ or do people swing too hard? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing blade irons. WRXer ‘ChunkItGood’ questions whether blades are actually overly punishing, and kicks off the thread saying.

“I just heard a guy on tv quote John Anselmo (?) who apparently taught Woods to the effect that ‘you can hit the ball as hard as you want as long as you hit the center of the face and stay in balance.’

If people followed that rule, would they have to worry about punishing’ mishits? Shouldn’t they, instead of getting more forgiving clubs, just stop swinging so hard they cannot hit the center of the face?”

And our members have been sharing their thoughts on the matter 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.

  • BagOfToast: “I find that a lot of the time I’m not hitting the center I’m just swinging too fast, so I’d agree with swinging too hard.”
  • iknowbagu: “It’s not mutually exclusive. Yes, blades are more punishing on off-center strikes. Yes, people swing too hard.”
  • jomatty: “Blades are punishing. I’m not sure that most players do better when they try to swing easy. As long as my tempo stays good and I don’t get quick from the top, my most consistent strike, with everything wedges, is one that is very close to as hard as I can swing. If I try to make that same hard swing and my tempo is bad, or if I try to make an easy swing and my tempo and sequencing is bad then I have lots of problems.”
  • Phabs: “Believe Tiger’s dad said that to him, not a coach. Swing speed had nothing to do with contact point. I can swing slow and hit a ball like crap, or I can swing out of my shoes and have the same result.”

Starter irons with a $200 budget – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing beginner irons on a budget. WRXer ‘Chch3’ is looking to build a set for his friend, and kicks off the thread asking:

“My question what iron set from the past would be good to get for $200. I have always played blades, CBs, or players clubs, so I am not up on the good game improvement clubs. I was thinking about getting him a set of pings, but I don’t know which ones are better than others. Any help will be greatly appreciated.”

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.

  • HammerGolf: “Ping Eye 2.”
  • dmeeksdc: “I’ve done what the OP is doing. The Adams lineup of irons are really fabulous clubs for very little money. The Adams Idea Pro Forged is a larger CB with tungsten weighting and a triple radius sole that feels fantastic and is as forgiving as any iron. Also has a nice top line, and the shape is great. I’ve in the past given a set of these as a gift to a player just starting out, and I think the entire set was $150. Pretty incredible for the quality of that design. The MPF numbers on it place it as game improvement. High MOI, low and deep CG.”
  • xkilgorextroutx: “You could also probably pick up some Wilson D100 or D200 irons in that price range, plenty of Adams and Tour Edge irons in that range too that are a few years older. Callaway irons and the many times mentioned Ping Eye2s also.”
  • 596: “For a beginner… Any Ping G series. I played the Ping G10 as a beginner and used them down to a 2 handicap.”
