What GolfWRXers are saying about ‘rare’ equipment items

Published

Bettinardi x Big League Chew

In our forums, our members have been discussing rare equipment items after WRXer ‘Rory4Pres’ created a thread dedicated to the topic. Our members have been discussing both the rare items they possess, and whether seeing another person with the same piece bothers them or not.

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.

  • JoeFrigo: “For me personally, it would bring together a conversation piece. I do like rare items, but I don’t care if I have something that is a 1 of 1. The Bettinardi Hive releases, everything SWAG Golf releases (especially the special headcovers you don’t expect) are all conversation starters. I buy things to use, not to sit on display. If it looks cool and I want it, I’m definitely going to use it.”
  • ARL67: “During the lockdown, I bought mint sets of MP-4 and Adams CMB. Though still readily available in the Classifieds, they might be “rare” in the sense that they are mint, but for now I just really like looking at them. I keep two bags of Mizuno as my gamers and also ordered some Wishon EQ1 SL heads, but I’ll put these all-time favourites in play once in a while.”
  • SubaruWRX: “I do have many rare clubs, and the worst part about it is sometimes I have a shot that’s going to abuse the clubs. If I break a rare club, how do I replace it? I wish the clubs I like didn’t happen to be rare. I’d rather have an abundance out there so I can replace anything I break or damage. And the price would be better too!”
  • dan360: “People don’t notice. My putter is rare; nobody cares. In face, I had a playing partner last summer ask me why I took such good care of a PING putter. So, of course, the WRX ho in me starts into this deep dive about what it is and the only part that he even acknowledged as ‘cool’ was when I was done with my 30-second dissertation.”
  • Stinger83: “Only for putters. I always Dig the idea of refinishing an old scotty or a custom MOTO. But I have a limit. I doubt I’d ever spend Martin guitar levels of money on a putter like a circle T. The putter is the most unique club in the bag, and I think most of us want it to reflect our favorite ‘look’ more than any other club. For me….that’s something like a circa 62 refinished black.”

How did heavier or lighter shafts affect your iron performance? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing shaft weight and how it affects their iron play. WRXer ‘RoyalMustang’ kicks off the thread asking two questions:

“1) If you went lighter, how did it impact your game (down to 95-105g). Tempo changes, good or bad?   

2) If you went heavier (120-130g), same question? Good move?”

And our members have been sharing their experiences 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.

  • gripandrip: “Average about 105 on my driver swing speed… not much more anymore. Currently playing to a ~2 HC. Switched from DGS300 to Steelfiber i95. No issues for me at all. I stayed with DG400’s in my wedges. Initially, I thought I had issues with dispersion, but after a couple of rounds, it was no longer a concern.”
  • mackepa: “I have found that around 120 grams is the “sweet spot” for my iron game. Anything heavier, and I start swinging hard to try to get the shaft to feel like it’s loading. Anything lighter than 120, and it starts to feel like a toothpick. I tend to also play my irons over length since I’m a little taller. I currently swing driver about 110mph, but I don’t really go after my irons with the same effort. I currently love the KBS $-Taper 120 Stiff.”
  • erikro: “Biggest difference for me is with the s300 shaft I feel it more the next morning. With a 105 gram shaft I have no trouble.”
  • Ri_Redneck: “I play graphite iron shafts, but only 115g and higher. I like a club with some heft. If they get too light, it throws my sequencing off, and balls go everywhere. I can’t say I’ve ever gotten too heavy in my irons, but 80g is the top of what I like in my driver and FWs.”
