‘Did one length irons ruin my game?’ – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

single length irons

In our forums, our members have been reacting to a post from WRXer ‘Alj92’, who is wondering whether switching to one length irons has ruined his game. Alj92 says:

“I played one length irons (King F9) all last season – about 80 rounds. In 20 years of golf I’ve never hit it better, even when I played well as a kid. 

Because I could not find left handed wedges (anything above 48*) or a 4/5i (anything less than 23*), I sold them at the end of last season. 

This year I switched to ping g425’s. Complete confidence, consistency and launch over the 6-7-8. Smash them. But I am struggling immensely with the 4/5 and 9-LW. Long irons thin weak slices, short irons strong pulls. Nowhere close with alignment. 

Did I kill my swing with the one length irons last season? Is that…possible, or does it make sense? Or is this just an expensive validation that I am a prime candidate for one length?”

Our members have been giving their take on the post in our forums.

  • lefthack: “Maybe just use traditional wedges with one length irons?”
  • GatorNate11: “If I had to guess, your brain/body have probably just adjusted to that length. Give it some time, maybe get a couple of lessons in, and I’m sure you’ll find it again. Unless you made some sort of wild change in your swing with or without realizing it, it’s probably just a feel/visual thing tbh.”
  • Fairway14: “Buy yourself a set of one length irons and wedges.”

    ‘Did one length irons ruin my game?’ Translation: Bought into marketing snake oil, again.

      No. If you knew how to read he said when playing the one length in his 20 years of golf he has never hit the ball better. He changed Bc he wanted new clubs and instead of sticking to one length and getting fit by cobra, edel, wishon etc he bought variable length clubs that probably cost the same as he could have been fitted into 1 length for. And snake oil? Even ping and Taylormade have done research into the one length concept and found around 30 percent of golfers would benefit from a 1 length setup. The issue is those companies wouldn’t sell enough of those clubs to justify the rnd, materials, and space for molds when idiots like you keep buying new variable length thinking that new set is the ticket. I play variable Bc I always have and when I tried one length for a month on vacation I actually saw why a lot of golfers could should try them. I just love my miuras to much. If miura made a 1 length set I’d switch.

SIM Max vs SIM2 Max – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been comparing and contrasting the original SIM Max with the latest SIM2 Max driver. WRXer “Spaceman1976” is torn between the two and reaches out to fellow members saying

“If anyone can offer their experiences with both drivers, I would greatly appreciate your feedback. I do see more SIM2 drivers for sale on the board than SIM drivers.”

And WRXers have been sharing their thoughts 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.

  • Yoshimonster: “Very minor difference between them. Go with Max.”
  • philleeeep: “I thought there was a big difference in sound. Hard to explain, but I personally preferred the SIM Max.”
  • tleader: “Love my SIM Max. Very little (if any) difference to “upgrade” to the SIM2 Max if fitted correctly.”
  • Kale_m: “Sim2 sounds and feels softer. Still super hot but just a different sound and feel. I personally like it. Sim2 is more neutral flight to me. I am playing it at a lower loft and in the upright setting. Dead straight bombs. Sim was much more fade biased, even when in the upright setting.”
