Don't the LCG models also come with a pretty substantial shaft upgrade, like a Matrix X-Con compared to the non-LCG which comes with a Speeder. This is of course assuming that a custom shaft isn't in there. The head should say either way.
The original Dynamic Gold shafts were pretty good. Definitely one of my favorite iron shafts. I'm typically a mid ball-flight guy and these were good for me. The 701s still hit the ball reasonably high, probably due to the cavity, but they can be hit low into the wind also. They have a nice soft feel and I love the ball flight. It's not the highest ball-flight I've ever hit by any means, but to me it's probably the most controllable as far as being able to keep it low...
Yep, using these irons, 5-PW, with Rifle shafts now, originally had the standard Dynamic Gold in them. They are pretty similar to the Mizuno MX-25s, slightly more pointed at the top of the toe, with a little different sole. The sole is thicker, but rounded at the front and back to give some relief. Feel is super soft. The face is a softer material (1020) than the rest of the body (1025). Feel is softer than any recent Mizuno to me. I absolutely the irons. They don't...
Nothing that I want. If there is something I want, I save up money for it and then buy it. The closest thing I have to a golf wish is for my new driver, 3 wood, and hybrids to arrive before my golf trip at the end of December. I'm leaving on the 28th, and going to play 3 or 4 rounds in as many days and having the new clubs in time would be great.
Not sure that's entirely accurate. According to Srixon, the URS has a lower compression and so wouldn't need as high of a swing speed to get the most of it distance-wise. The URS is a bit softer feeling. Actually the Srixon balls are somewhat of an anomaly as the URS has a lower compression core, softer feel, while having lower spin compared to the URC. Both of the Srixon balls are good. From talking with other players the ones that like the V1 tend towards the URS...
Went through a fitting and it's going to get a little expensive for me. After hitting just about everything Ping had to offer at a demo day they ended up fitting me for a new driver, 3 wood, and a couple of hybrids. For driver we are going with the 65g YS-Q, for the 3 wood, the 75g YS-Q, and then the YS-Q hybrid shafts for the hybrids. It's a pretty similar feeling shaft to the YS-6+ which is what I am currently playing in my Hibore XL. On paper the specs look pretty...
Definitely get fit for them. Don't just do a static fit, make sure to get fit when you are actually hitting balls. Just holding the club the toe of my irons sits up but at contact during the actual swing my irons are perfect at 3 degrees upright. Also, make sure you get fit to the irons you are actually going to buy, not all companies have the same standard lie angle (Mizuno tends to be flatter than Cobra for example).
I did hit a demo one of the Viper Tour drivers that had the XT shaft in it. Overall it's a solid shaft, just not for me. I prefer something with more of a smoother feel to it. I actually hit the Viper Tour pretty well, pretty much on par with my HiBore XL with the original shaft. Something about the feel of the shaft I don't really care for. Personal taste. It's a solid shaft that I could play with good success, just not "the" shaft for me when it comes to the...
The 24 hybrid goes farther than the 4-iron it replaced, that isn't the problem, it's just that I found a different head/shaft combo that fits my distance gaps better. I don't particularly like the XT shaft. I've hit it in a couple different heads, including the Viper Tour, and it doesn't perform for me. Couldn't really explain why, just not the right one for me. It doesn't feel good and I just don't seem to get any real "pop" from it.
Have the 18 degree and the 24 degree of these. Awesome feeling clubs. I ended up putting a couple of Snake Eyes VSE Fairway shafts that were sitting around in them. Tipped them like a 7/9 wood. They worked well, but personally I wish they used 0.370 tip shafts instead of 0.335. They designed them for 0.335 to give more options with graphite shafts, which makes sense, but I prefer a heavier shaft in my hybrids (75+ gram) which was a little harder to find. I changed...
