Is this opportunity  still available? I've played the e5 and e6 somewhat before. Really like the spin with irons on e5 without having to give up on some distance characteristics 
Knocked down another milestone today. Finally broke 90 which was a big personal goal of mine. I felt like I needed to get there to feel like a real golfer. I didn't expect that today would be the day at the turn because I was +13 on the front nine, but finished the front nine with a couple of pars. Finished up only 2 over on the back which consisted of 3 bogeys, 1 birdie, and the rest were parts. Finished up with an 87. I was thrilled especially since I was even on the...
Bought a Taylor made Jetspeed driver but am going another route. This driver is about a week old and has been hit a few times at the range. Asking $80 in the 48 states. Paypal preferred.
I hit one today at DICK'S and was pretty impressed. The weights were set to neutral but I noticed that even my mis hits turned out really nicely. I'm too high of a handicapper to even think about spending the $400 on this club but I was wondering if I could get similar performance from the SLDR or Jetspeed which are available for much less.
Thanks all. Not knowing what to call it definitely won't keep me from using it since it has worked well for me in the past. I'm going to guess that over the last 2 or 3 times that I have played thinned or fatted pitches have cost me at least 5 strokes per round. I'm guessing it is more of a pitch and run based on what I'm seeing on these replies.
In one of the last scramble tournaments that I played it, I really struggled with shots under <100 yards using full or even 3/4 shots with wedges (Gap, Sand, and Lob). The tournament was three days. Day one and two were pretty disastrous on these shots and I really had a lot of trouble. One day three, the actual day that scores really counted, I decided to try and play smart golf and take higher percentage shots. A lot of shots involved clubbing up a club or two and...
Well the year has gone by and I haven't improved on my best round of 95 but I did end up breaking 100 more times than I remember this year. My handicap is down to 26.5 and my average score is right at 100. I'm hoping that with some substantial improvement in 2015 to lower my HC to at least under 20. I think if I can do that my average score would be around a 93 or 94 (give or take) and that would be progress. I'd like to start dipping my toes into the upper 80s at least...
I will definitely look at some of the advice suggested above. I played this weekend and made some interesting observations. I switched back to some more SGI irons instead of the J40 dual pockets that I've been playing (probably better clubs that I should be playing but damn they are good looking) and j also purchased and wore a swing glove to rule out cupping as an issue. Even though my score did not reflect it, my iron play was overall pretty good and I only had a few...
And it may not be that I have to roll over the forearms as much as I might need to "feel" that way. Right now I am holding off all they way through. I may not have to actually roll the forearms as much as just finish my swing properly.    We did take video, but not high speed.
