‘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 the loudest driver ever? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing drivers with the loudest sound at impact. WRXer ‘GolferDude54’ is hard of hearing and looking for a driver that makes a big noise at impact, and our members have been sharing their best picks 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.

  • jetmech879: “Nike SQ has to be the loudest driver I’ve ever heard!”
  • 1s1k: “Another vote for Cobra L4V. People at the driving range were giving me dirty looks whenever I brought that out.”
  • OttoVanBizMarkie: “Cobra L4V and Cleveland HiBore XL. I think the L4V was louder, but the HiBore really made like a screeching sound whenever you hit the ball. Seems that with the square drivers mentioned before and the HiBore, the more irregular it is shaped, the worst it sounds.”
  • steventoo: “Another vote for the Cobra L4V here. I think they’re some of the best drivers ever made, but wow – they are loud.”

GolfWRX Spotted: Costco Kirkland Signature irons on USGA Conforming List

Published

on

Costco is continuing its expansion of the Kirkland Signature line into golf with new irons recently spotted on the USGA Conforming List.

Having previously produced balls, wedges and a putter, the new Kirkland Signature (Version 2) irons show that Costco is going all the way with golf equipment, with an offering that includes ‘Kirkland Signature’ and ‘Tungsten’ marked on the backside of the iron head, while ‘Forged’ is marked on the hosel.

Interestingly, the listing states that the irons are manufactured by Indi Golf, who have manufactured their own line of wedges (both conforming and non-conforming) as well as putters.

It appears as if the irons feature in part a hollow body construction and look to be less of a super game improvement iron than many would have anticipated.

In our forums, our members have been discussing the new Kirkland Signature irons and have been sharing their impressions, not least with the similarity in looks of the new additions to TaylorMade’s popular P790 irons.

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.

  • st1800e: “Interesting they went for a players distance iron and not a super or ultra game improvement iron.”
  • Klubster: “Logo aside, if they perform well, they will sell. But the logo will put off a lot of people just because of the vanity factor. I would rather see an exclusive brand like Dick’s did with the Tommy Armour 845s. I am sure they would not have sold as well if they had stamped Dick’s on the back.”
  • naj959: “I’m excited about these clubs. They would make the perfect set for my pops, who probably hasn’t swung a club in 10+ years but wants to grab some sticks with the latest tech. And he loves Costco! The members really do think highly of the K-Sig brand. I can see these in the bags of a large number of casual golfers. If they come in lefty, I know what someone’s getting on their birthday.”
  • FormerBigDaddy: “Not gonna lie, they look nice. I also agree that if they changed the logo/stamping on their golf equipment, they might do even better. Minimalist “KS” stamp or maybe “Kirkland” on the hosel like Taylormade does, and just the “Signature” cursive script would be kind of slick. I honestly think they could make some noise in golf equipment if they made a good product that didn’t scream Costco branding at a good price. We all know we overpay for what golf clubs actually cost to make. If they sold these at $399 with dynamic gold shafts, they’d probably sell a lot of them.”
