Ping iBlade: Most forgiving blade? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing Ping’s iBlade. WRXer ‘m_w’ recently tested out the iron from Ping and was blown away from his experience, saying:

“I went to hit the i59s today – lovely looking iron, great spin. Very comparable to the Callaway Apex Pro 21, in my opinion. 

Before I left I went to hit the iBlade, which I had never hit before. Great feeling iron. I absolutely smoked it. How can an iron this small be so forgiving? Is it just the honeymoon period where you think you found the holy grail, or can others confirm that the iBlade is extremely forgiving? Honestly felt as if not more forgiving as a Mizuno JPX Forged or Callaway Apex. Am I crazy?”

And our members have been sharing their thoughts on the blade, with many holding the same opinion.

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.

  • BostonWRX: “One of the best irons made IMO. Insanely forgiving for the size and look awesome in the bag.”
  • Longballjock: “I love my I Blades; got the i200 in 4&5 irons but could have easily played the iBlade in those clubs tho. I have typically played smaller irons.Titleist 670 MB, Nike VR TW, AP2, Taylormade MB, Nike Vapor Pro. Out of everything these irons defo perform the best when my swing is not firing on all cylinders. I will go test the new i59 but reckon these will be in the bag for 2022.”
  • sbolitho: “The iBlade is still the best iron Ping has ever made (would have loved a set of s-55’s though, missed out there). I have a set and they are as good as anything in the players cb/mb category.”

Titleist launches Pro V1 RCT (Radar Capture Technology) golf balls

Published

on

If you’ve hit golf balls indoors on a TrackMan, you’re familiar with the annoyance of orientating a ball’s reflective marker for tracking.

Beyond the inconvenience of tinkering with every ball before hitting, the current “position the sticker” system is far from perfect — if you don’t orientate the ball the right way, the sticker is damaged or has fallen off, spin numbers will be estimated, and thus, less accurate.

And while this phenomenon is bothersome to the golfer beating balls on a TrackMan indoors, it’s even more problematic for indoor fitters who rely heavily on spin numbers and accuracy in peak height, roll out, carry distance, and more to make their club and shaft recommendations.

Fortunately, Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls with Radar Capture Technology (RCT), launched today, offer a solution and provide the most accurate ball flight information possible (more on the 2021 Pro V1 and Pro V1x here).

“Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x RCT golf balls combine the game’s greatest combination of speed, spin, and feel with new technology that more consistently captures precision performance and golf ball data from TrackMan units used in an indoor setting,” said Jeremy Stone, Vice President, Titleist Golf Ball Marketing. “We have worked closely with TrackMan for more than two years to optimize this embedded radar reflective, patent pending technology. The result is a reliably strong ‘signal’ that enables spin capture on all shots.”

Years in the making, these golf balls have the same performance characteristics of Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls. According to Titleist, golfers can play them outside, if they’re so inclined, and they won’t notice a difference in performance, and RCT balls conform with R&A and USGA rules.

It took Titleist and TrackMan engineers years of collaboration to develop a technology that would both stand up to the wear and tear of a golf ball in an indoor environment and return 99-plus percent signal capture.

Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x RCT golf balls will be available through authorized Titleist trade partners in North America and EMEA, as well as Titleist.com beginning Nov. 3, Global distribution will follow in April 2022. $64.99/dozen.

‘It’s the perfect club’ – GolfWRXers discuss Callaway’s new Apex UW utility wood

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing Callaway’s new Apex UW utility wood. WRXer ‘CopeGolfer’ is interested in hearing from members who have hit the club, and plenty of WRXers have been sharing their very positive early experiences with the UW 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.

  • XanderSingh: “I took mine out for the first time yesterday! I have it shafted with an Atmos Blue 8x. I have a 21 degree to go up against my 7 wood. I really like it so far; it’s much easier to work and flight the ball than my 7 wood. Also should mention that I’ve never gotten along with hybrids. I would equate it to fairway woods that I played as a junior (early 2000’s). Also, I think it’s for everyone really; my friend who is an 18 handicap hit it a few times and really loved it. So much that he picked up a 17 degree on his way home to replace his 4 wood.”
  • PowerCobra98: “I’ve had mine for about a week now. It’s the perfect club. Really the best of both worlds between fairway and hybrid.”
  • mootrail: “Got Mine! Looks fantastic! Easy to hit, centered every one and feels hot and solid (off the mat). I settled for the Project X as I didn’t want to wait but seemed decent at the shop. From address, it reminds me a lot of my Nickent 3DX Utility DC which was exactly this; a cross between their fairway and hybrid. Beyond that, it’s miles different. Mats and launch monitors are meaningless to me; I can’t wait to get it out on the course! I will say it sets up open, launches low and definitely seems anti-left; exactly what I’m looking for.”
  • QuigleyDU: “This club is awesome. I am completely smitten.”
