‘My grandma just smoked a 9-iron 200 yards’

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing whether or not there is a ‘max usable iron distance’. WRXer ‘Barfolomew’ kicks off the thread with the eye-catching title of ‘My grandma just smoked a 9 iron 200 yards’ before delving into the subject matter, saying:

“Will manufacturers forever be chasing more iron distance or is there a max usable iron distance? 

You could see very weak players always wanting more distance vs very good players thinking gaps….. or is that not true. In 2050 they are still gonna be saying these are the longest irons on the market, way further than the 2049s or will it max out.”

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.

  • Ger21: “Distance sells, and a very large percentage of golfers is always looking for more distance. But on the other hand, there’s only so much distance you can get out of a given clubhead speed.”
  • Grouchykona: “I feel clickbaited . . was expecting to see a video of a yoked out grandma crushing 9 irons.”
  • golfinbrad: “I think companies have done a pretty good job making irons for all types of players. Might be more options now than ever, or at least in a long time. I will say companies market distance most because it sells. Maybe not for your better players or at least more knowledgeable players, but it does work. Every spring there are those guys who show up at the range with the latest and greatest, thinking this club will take their game to the next level.”

What’s your 3-wood? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been talking about their 3-woods. WRXer ‘Kdgolf’ is on the hunt for a new 3-wood, and our members have been sharing their suggestions as well as making arguments for their current gamer.

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.

  • phizzy30: “Still have my OG SIM ti.  It’s very hot off the face, mid launch, low spin.  Great off the tee, but you need some speed off the deck to make it come to life.  Qi10 tour is also another good one I tested and numbers were very similar to the SIM ti but it launched slightly higher.”
  • knudson81: “Cobra Darkspeed LS 3+ and add a Mitsubishi Tensei 1K Pro White 70. Absolute monster.”
  • adamwon84: “I have the AI Smoke Max 3 wood (15 degrees) and it might be the easiest club to hit from a tee or off the deck that I have ever had (when it comes to a 3 wood that is) and the distance is pretty fantastic.”
  • runningblind11: “Taylormade fairways always work best for me, I need a deeper face.  All in the last 5 years are good, but I really like the look of the Qi10 this year.   I have a 3HL and a 7 in the bag now.”

KBS Max HL hybrid shafts launched

Published

on

KBS has seen great success with the new Max line of wood and iron shafts that are designed for players who need to add some height in order to optimize their shots. The KBS Max HL hybrid shaft is the last piece of the puzzle KBS needed to now offer a full bag of shafts that will help golfers hit higher and more accurate golf shots.

The KBS Max HL hybrid shafts will be similar to their wood siblings, utilizing the same EI profile. KBS has built the Max HL hybrid shaft around fitting their swing speed instead of just going by flex. This philosophy will give slower swing speed players the ability to hit higher shots with added spin for better distance and dispersion.

The Max HL shafts will be offered in flexes from a 40 gram R2 through an 80 gram X-Stiff and in three different color options. Each shaft will be available in black gloss, white gloss, or KBS red gloss paint to match or contrast with the rest of your clubs. Fitters and builders will be able to get more creative with their players as the Max HL will be the common .370 tip diameter and have 10 inches of parallel tip section.

KBS Max HL hybrid shafts: Pricing, specs, availability

  • Available now
  • Price: $75
  • .370 tip, 10 inch parallel tip section
