Thanks for the reply, dkolo. The 54/6 would be for chipping -- I have a 56/14 to use from heavy rough and deep sand, but I simply can't use so much bounce anywhere else. And yes, that was my apprehension, dropping $$ on clubs I haven't hit, even with the rave reviews. I like the Covert Forged because of the low bounce throughout the set. I haven't been able to find many irons with that set up... probably why it's worthwhile just to stick with my Clevelands. So I just...
hello all -- seeing a lot of great deals on the Nike Covert Forged irons, wondering if it's worth the upgrade from my Cleveland TA5 Gunmetal irons.   never got a chance to hit the Nike's, but everything i'm reading sounds great.  i'm a picker, so i love the low bounce all the way to the SW.   however, i have no reason to part from the TA5s... i've become a subscriber of, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".  i'm hitting the TA5s great, very consistent all the way to the...
i always use my 7 iron from the fringe.   b/c, lucky number...
 strange it took 16 posts for someone to point this out... i would have put up a pretty good stand to get the $25 back in my pocket where it belonged. if nobody wins, then by default, everyone gets their $$ back... if the bet carried over to another hole, you should have been in on it... did you simply play through at that point, or...??
out of curiosity, for those of you who are using it -- does the shortened backswing promote a brief pause at the top??   i haven't ever really taken a 'huge' backswing (so i'm wondering if i've always had a shorter backswing, TBH), but i have had great success concentrating on the slightest of pauses at the top of my swing.  i've recently been able to increase my tempo from what i would consider 'comfortably deliberate' to 'naturally smooth', and the last two rounds i...
juvenile behavior...??  no.   weird...??  abso-friggin-lutely.
nothing like finding a ProV1 tagged w/ "Uncle Randy's Breezy Balls".
 agreed.  everyone likes to point to the stats, but it doesn't take each of our typical experiences into account.   if you play open courses, then longer into rough probably isn't too bad. on tight or woodsy courses, i'm not so sure.
my opinion is probably skewed b/c my home course is very tight, with OB surrounding half of the holes.     driver into rough 20 yds further??  sure, i'd take that.  but for me on my course, if you don't hit fairway, you're lucky if you aren't screwed.
i'm with the OP on this one.  accuracy over distance leads to better scores for many players more often than not.  i played irons only for a while and just got back to my 3w off the tee (ditched the driver a looong time ago).   the flip-side of the argument is course management on any given course... do you smash it as far as you can and take a half wedge in, or take an iron off the tee for a full-swing second shot??  horses for courses.  i only recently discovered i...
