Moving from blades to P790s…Lazy? Will my scores go down? – GolfWRXers discuss



In our forums, our members have been reacting to a topic surrounding moving away from blade irons. WRXer ‘TGolfer66’ kicks off the thread, saying:

“After trying a buddy’s P790s, I’m thinking of moving from Mizuno blades to P790s. I have plenty of distance and still play decent (4ish hcp), so I figure why not make golf easier? Am I just being lazy, or are others doing this?”

And our members have been responding in their numbers.

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.

  • mudmarlin: “I bet his scores do go down. You barely miss the sweet spot with a blade your short of the green, with a more forgiving club your on and putting for birdie. As soon as I went back to my 63s, my scores went down a few strokes. Easier to make birdies when you’re putting instead of chipping.”
  • tets: “I also think scores won’t improve. People who say mis-hits will end up way short, but that may be short of the deep bunker green side, where the forgiving club is plugged under the lip. I’m thinking of going the opposite way. I’m a +1 and got a set of Mizuno Pro 225s, thinking I can use the help. I’ve played a couple of times with them now, and I miss the thin sole of blades. Stay tuned; they may be on the BST forum soon.”
  • MtlJeff: “It depends on the type, of course, you play IMO. As a 4 you are probably a decent striker. If you’re hitting a lot of 4 and 5 irons, I could see new irons making a difference. If you’re mostly hitting 7-PW it likely won’t change much.”
  • lefthack: “Play what you enjoy hitting. That’s really all that matters.”

    I’m now 60 and changed from my blade I3 ping irons to ping 700 Irons. Found the short irons have less distance, and have gained distance with the long irons. My dispersion with the short irons has improved. I’m very pleased.

    It has been proven time and again that when you go from blades to game enhancement irons, you WILL be on the tour within 6 months. Now go out and buy up those clubs folks. Do it. NOW!!!!!

Best Ping irons from the last 5 years – GolfWRXers discuss



In our forums, our members have been discussing Ping irons. WRXer ‘LowAndLeft32’ wants to hear what our members believe are the best additions from the brand over the past five years, with the i210 irons proving a popular choice.

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.

  • PEI_Golfer: “Hard pressed to beat the i210s.”
  • realmfg: “Blueprints.”
  • eric61: “Love the i210s — they’re easily the answer here, in my opinion. I really liked the i59s, too, but not as much as the i210s, and I think their price point maybe has meant a lot of people didn’t even end up trying them. G-series irons are fine too. If you’re in that segment of the market, the last few years it’s been the latest G irons vs the latest Hot Metals for the top of the pecking order, in my opinion.”
  • Cwhite912: “Easy, I210, Blueprint, iBlade.”
