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.

Adidas launches new PrimeBlue apparel and CodeChaos21 shoes

Published

on

Adidas Golf has unveiled its newest collection featuring apparel and shoes made from recycled PrimeBlue material.

For apparel products to be considered PrimeBlue, they must meet a minimum standard of 40 percent recycled content overall. The products as part of this latest range have a minimum of 95 percent, with a majority being made with 100 percent recycled polyester.

“Our goals are ambitious to eliminate all virgin polyester from our line, but this offering shows just how close we are to getting there. We pushed ourselves in new ways with design and materials development to bring this apparel to life. We know golfers around the world will appreciate the performance features, but they will also feel good about buying a product that in a small way saves our oceans from plastic waste.” – Shaun Madigan, director of global apparel, Adidas Golf.
