How good do you need to be to play T100S irons? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing Titleist’s T100S irons. WRXer ‘Vater’ is considering purchasing the clubs but is concerned that he may not be at the right level to play them, saying:

“I’m thinking of getting T100S short irons. I hit them well in the bay and got consistent numbers for my short irons. I love the buttery feel and control that I’m looking for more of in my short irons. 

But how good do you need to be to play them over time, not just at the shop? Do you need to be a blade player, a solid low handicapper, a super ball striker? Anyone playing them who’s more of just an average golfer?”

And our members have been sharing their opinion in our forum, with many believing they are clubs for golfers of all levels.

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.

  • LeftyMatt24: “Depends on your strengths. Also which irons you’re going to get the t100s in, I think contributes to if you can play them. I’d say if you’re a good ball striker, you should have no issues with 7 iron down.”
  • third-times-a-charm: “You can play whatever you want. There are 25hc players who play blades because it makes them feel good. I would say at least a 10hc at the most to properly make use of them and get the ball speed and striking you need. I’m sure there will be differing opinions.”
  • R5Two: “No. You can hit them. Practice. If you hit them well in the bay, just give yourself some time on the course, and you’ll get used to them.”
  • CUBuffaloes: “Don’t let someone tell you that your handicap has to be at least a certain number to play them. If you like them, play them. I’m a crappy bogey golfer, but I’d happily play a set of T100s. I can’t stand wide soles and huge offset commonly found in GI irons. I’ve tried GI irons and shoot worse than I do with a more players type club. Find the right shaft and play what you want.”

    I’m so sick of this topic. The type of irons you play have almost zero outcome on your score. Keep the driver in play, don’t screw up your chips, and make a few puts and you will score wellish. If your swing sucks with a blade it’s still going to suck with a shovel. No club is going to help when you hit 3 inches behind the ball.

What GolfWRXers are saying about PXG drivers

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing PXG drivers. WRXer ‘Kman7218’ is looking at low spin options and wants know how PXG drivers stack up against the very best, and our members 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.

  • 03trdblack: “The 0211 driver is by far the best value for what you get on the market right now in my opinion as it’s just a forgiving, good looking and easy to hit driver that gives great distance for cheap. It has a quieter, more baseball bat sound to it than the metallic sound you get with most drivers.  The Gen 5 driver is a drastic improvement to the Gen 4 in terms of feel/sound and looks.  I’ve been using the Gen 5 off and on and it’s neck and neck with anything else I’ve used on the market today.  It also looks fantastic at address as it looks like a dark version of the original TaylorMade SIM and I’m super happy they brought back the toe weight since my miss is left.”
  • Proof: “Playing a Gen 5 0311 w/ Tour AD IZ6 and absolutely love it.  Last PXG driver I tried before this was the Gen 2 and wasn’t a fan but the current offerings are great.”
  • golfnhack: “I BIG NAY for me. They just don’t perform (IMHO). Also… if they did.. all the equipment free agents on the PGA tour would use them. I think I only know of 1 player on the PGA tour using a PXG driver… and he is a staffer. Most PXG staffers don’t even use a PXG driver.”
  • dmeeksDC: “The Gen 5 driver is outstanding, as good as any driver going and better than most. Have one with a Paderson Velocity shaft. Very long and forgiving, highly adjustable, sounds great. Delivers excellent performance.”

SPOTTED: Cleveland RTX 6 ZipCore Tour Rack wedges at the 2022 Shriners Children’s Open

Published

on

New golf equipment was showing up left and right on Monday at the 2022 Shriners Children’s Open at TPC Summerlin in Las Vegas.

In addition to launching new ZX7 MKII irons, Cleveland-Srixon also brought out new RTX 6 ZipCore Tour Rack wedges for PGA Tour players to test for the first time.

While we don’t yet have details on the new wedges yet, based on the overall aesthetics, nomenclature, and design of the wedge, it appears the new RTX 6 ZipCore Tour Rack wedges could be set to replace Cleveland’s previous RTX ZipCore models.

Speaking with GolfWRX recently, Cleveland Product Manager Casey Shultz explained what the former RTX ZipCore wedges were all about:

“RTX ZipCore is designed for the better player with a well-developed short game that can take advantage of the added versatility the line brings to improve their shot-making capabilities around the greens, while still experiencing added forgiveness and consistency over what can typically be found in a blade wedge.”

“RTX ZipCore is the first product we introduced with our ZipCore technology, a low-density material within the hosel that helps to shift the CG and raise MOI, adding spin, enhancing control, and boosting consistency all within a traditional blade style shape. This wedge also has the newest Rotex face design with the sharper, deeper, and closer UltiZip grooves for maximum spin performance. On top of this, a new heat treatment process has been added to ensure these grooves stay sharp and this spin continues round after round.”

While we don’t know exactly what the new “6” is referencing, it could possibly mean these wedges are the sixth edition of “RTX” wedges, since the Cleveland RTX 4 wedges came out in 2018, and the company followed those up with the RTX ZipCore wedges in 2020.

Also, Shultz briefly explained the continued benefits of the Tour Rack program:

“Tour testing and feedback has a big influence on the design of our wedges, especially when it comes to grind offerings and appearance at address. We constantly are making modifications to the grinds for tour players and take notes of what works and what doesn’t and work this feedback in to future designs as well as custom grinding options available in our Tour Rack program.”

It appears that Cleveland’s Tour Rack has helped produced a new offering of RTX 6 ZipCore wedges, which we spotted at the 2022 Shriners Children’s Open below.
