Is a blade just a blade? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing blade irons and whether there are discernible difference in models or not.

WRXer ‘LowAndLeft32’ wants to know how fellow members decide on a particular blade to game, and WRXers have been sharing their thoughts and process 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.

  • benclab: “Look of top line, offset and how bounce acts at contact and through. All blades are not the same.”
  • Yoshifan151: “Blade designs differ a lot from one manufacturer to another. Sole design is the biggest one that will have an impact IMO. But if you like your VR Pros I’d stick with them personally; those are one of the best blade sets ever in terms of a total package.”
  • cgasucks: “The shape of the blade has virtually been changed for decades. You can only forge a billet of carbon steel into so many shapes. It is really up to the person to decide. You can’t go wrong with any of the blades you listed. Your current Nike Blades are can still perform up there with today’s blades. For me, I would choose one which is based on looks and feel and how it frames against the ball at address.”
  • DaRiz: “Looks at address. Sound/feel. Looks in the bag. In that order, no other criteria need be analyzed.”

    Get the right shaft and anybody is able to hit a blade. They are still very unforgiving, but the feedback and control are the best. Mizuno makes the best blades in my opinion. But there are a lot of good blades from different manufacturers out there. Even Nike was able to make a few decent ones.

Longest hybrid of 2021? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been taking a deep dive into the latest hybrids. WRXer ‘Russian7’ kicks off the discussion saying

“Anyone compare or hit G425, SIM, RadSpeed or Tsi to compare? I am dying to find something that can replace my Jetspeed 3 hybrid, but after all these years, there is nothing as long as it that I’ve found, but I would really like something new that looks a lot better but performs the same as my jet speed. I was looking at the G425 possibly..”

And our members have been sharing their thoughts 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.

  • Jwin323: “Callaway Super hybrid.”
  • JoeFrigo: “Like mentioned above, if you’re looking for flat out distance, nothing will beat the Callaway super hybrid, and it’s not close. But for 2021 release I’m seeing some impressive numbers with the PXG Proto hybrid. Sim2 Rescue is a close 2nd. Ultimately PXG was surprisingly very forgiving for the profile, and it’s honestly my favorite club to hit at the moment.”
  • Drivingrangehero: “Tour Edge Exotics C721. They picked up where Adams left off, in my opinion.”
  • Hollywoodtlb: “Got fit into the G425 17 degree with tour shaft x-stiff and was hitting bombs with it. Never hit any 3 wood or hybrid straighter. Obviously when I get it, I’ll go back to hitting awful, but I’m very excited to get it. Gets off the ground very easily.”
