Today from the Forums: “Older club appreciation”

Published

on

Today from the Forums shines the spotlight on older golf clubs which our members still adore. KjBowen kicked off the thread with his Ping G25 irons which have made their way back into his bag, and fellow WRXers have been mentioning their favorite older clubs in response.

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: “Still love, Love, LOVE PING EYE2s (no, I am not yelling)…”
  • MtlJeff: “I have a set of original Eye2’s refinished and a set of G410’s. So I’m burning the candle at both ends here! I rarely have the desire to hit my old clubs. I still have my Apex Pros and hit them a few weeks back. I don’t miss them.”
  • puttingfordough: “I just received a set of these on Thursday. Played the G15 irons for a few years and loved the performance, not the look so much. Several iron sets later I decided to go back to that “G” performance and, to me, these (G25) are by far the best looking of G line of clubs. Now, personally, I do not care for the ferrule on the last few G designs, so that fact limited my options. Warm yesterday for February here in Michigan, so off to range to try them out and all I can say is “it is good to be back!!!”. Now range balls were still cold, so feel was not spectacular, but no hiding what these clubs shine at even with a rusty swing. Has me looking forward to warmer weather. Picked up 5-UW with steel fibers and now thinking I need a couple of G25 hybrids to fill out the set, just because.”
  • myheorbobhope: “Currently waiting on the Adams CMB heads I bought in the classified section to be ready for me to game… really excited about them! Still putting with an original black two ball with the white-hot face.”
  • starrman77: “Those aren’t old Pings; these are (Ping i3’s). I still game these, even though I also own a set of i20’s, G10’s and G30 irons. Just can’t find anything that has been able to knock the i3’s out of the bag.”

    I still play a Hogan Special SW (rechromed), probably 50 years old. Have had 20 SW’s from all manufacturers since; none as good for a low handicap player.

    My Cleveland Vas 792 irons are the most beautiful clubs in the world. They’ve aged nicely!

Best forged game improvement irons? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing forged game improvement irons. WRXer ‘Monks66’ is on the hunt with more forgiveness, saying

“I currently play the Mizzy JPX Pro 825s, love them, but I don’t play as much golf these days, wondering if there is a forged iron out there with more forgiveness….thoughts?”

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.

  • tigercolt77: “You’ll get a lot of answers, and it comes down to what look/feel you prefer. I’d go with Callaway Apex cf19 personally. They check all the boxes.”
  • blopar: “Srixon ZX5 or PXG 0211, I have a set of each. Right now, I’m lovin’ the PXG’s.”
  • R5Two: “I would recommend hitting the ZX7, it has more forgiveness than you would think. Also, forged face insert T200 are great this year. +1 for the PXG sale is fire.”
  • 20six: “Mizuno Comp-EZ, if they could be found.”
