SPOTTED: TaylorMade “GAPR” 2-iron

Published

on

We recently spotted a photo of a TaylorMade “GAPR” driving iron in our GolfWRX Forums, and some more photos from around the Internet. One of the photos in our Forum Thread has emojis and text added to the photo, implying that @haotong66 — which is HaoTong Li’s Instagram handle — originally posted the photo. Check out the photo from GolfWRX Member cvhookem63 for yourself…

Gavinkgreen7 — an Asian/Eurpoean Tour pro — also posted the photo below on Instagram that has an even clearer image of the TaylorMade “GAPR” iron.

In addition to the “GAPR” text on the back of the club, which one would have to assume means “gapper” for yardage gapping, it also appears to say “LO.” LO would certainly imply a lower ball flight, right? Either way, the club pictured above has what appears to be an adjustable weight in the rear cavity of the club head, possibly to adjust weight and/or launch angle.

Curious timing right before the 2018 Open Championship at Carnoustie for a photo of a driving iron to pop up in our forums, don’t you think? Could this possibly be a new prototype for Open Championship participants to use off the tee for more control in the wind… possibly with a LO-wer trajectory?

Additionally, TaylorMade Tour Rep Chris Trott posted a photo on his personal Instagram with what looks to be a low-lofted iron that has an adjustable hosel — the two “GAPR” irons pictured above do not appear to have an adjustable hosel. Is this the same “GAPR” iron? It’s hard to tell when covered by unicorns and skulls, but it does have a similar look aside from the hosels. The iron Trott posted has 17 degrees of loft on it (you can see just below the “shush” face emoji).

You can see below that the skull emoji does not cover the “lower” text, and a clearly adjustable hosel (pictured in the red circle below).

It’s all speculation at this point, since we haven’t heard anything official from TaylorMade. For now, check out more photos and discussion in the forum thread.

    What does GAPR mean? Is it an acronym? GAP Rescue? Someone please tell me it’s something more than just gapr…

    This is probably an 18* 2 iron to fit the “gap” between the 17* UDI and the 19* P790 3 iron. You know, because every pro (pro-wannabe?) has so many 230+ shots to hit.

    Is it another TM fake-forged hollow body iron filled with jello-elastomer and a tungsten slug in the toe… making it the ultimate SGI driving iron in the world? 😮

      you’re probably such a good player….. just cause you cant hit them doesn’t mean they aren’t a good product.

    So it’s like any other adjustable driving iron then? Also sounds like GDPR which makes me lol.

What GolfWRXers are saying about Mizuno’s ST-Z fairway woods

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing Mizuno’s ST-Z fairway woods. WRXer ‘Kale_m’ is in the market for a fairway wood and reaches out to fellow members for feedback on the Mizuno ST-Z, and our members have been sharing their reviews of the club 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.

  • bryanwmilburn: “I have the 3 wood with Ventus Black 7X, and it’s the best fairway I’ve ever owned.”
  • JMB83: “I played the 3 wood with Ventus Blue 6s this past weekend, and it was a weapon off the tee. I really like the deep face for that purpose, and I appreciate the more neutral to open setup at 14*. The feel is unbelievable too.”
  • JDW3: “Got mine out on the course today. I hit it really well off the deck and off the tee. I really like that the lie angle is a little flatter. Looking forward to getting out this weekend to get in some more testing.”
  • Kale_m: “Ummmm, this thing is a cannon…Best looking 3w ever though. Turned it down a notch, and it sits perfect. A hook is my miss with the 3w. Not 1 with this in about 15 balls I hit.”

Srixon ZX7 vs Srixon 785 irons – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been pitting Srixon’s ZX7 irons against the brand’s 785 irons. WRXer ‘AbSWFPGA’ is currently playing the company’s 745 irons and reaches out to members for feedback on the ZX7’s and 785’s, and WRXers have been sharing their experiences with both 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.

  • tssgj65: “I played the 785 last season. Went ahead and bought the ZX7 because of the hype. Same shaft in both, but for whatever reason, I am back with the 785. Probably no different than any other iron change, but as of now, I feel more confident with the 785’s.”
  • KPH808: “I’ve had both sets with the same shafts as well. I prefer the 785s, but the ZX7s look much better. I had the 785s in the bag for a while, but the ZX7s lasted only a few rounds.”
  • ace036: “I had the ZX7’s and also ended up going back to my Z785’s. I prefer the shape and longer blade length appearance of the Z785’s. The slightly wider sole works better for me as well.”
  • Haber: “I’ve had my Z785’s for almost 2 years now. Hoping I can go a couple more without switching. I recently demoed the zx7 and the apex pro for fun. Zx7 felt very similar and looked fantastic. Apex pro launched higher and carried a little further, but the sound and feel of the cup face made them an instant turn off. Couldn’t discern too much between the 2 Srixon offerings, so I will be sticking with my z785’s until the next round of temptation hits. I will say dollar for dollar Srixon irons are the best value in the golf market. Hundreds cheaper than the other guys and amazing quality.”
