Please share any results you get if you feel like it. Like I said I have not found much data on the "game improvement" effects or lack thereof of GI irons and I am very interested in seeing some. All "data" is welcome here
The 7 iron G30 is labeled as an 8 because I had already practice with my gamer 7 iron with the 7 iron setting on the simulator and the 6 iron MP4 is labeled as a 5 iron because i also already practiced with my 6 iron on the simulator.

Shafts were different but both were stiff...

Just wanted to show you all what I got when hitting about 7 shots with these clubs. All the shots I hit are shown on the screen...

However I think that the static fitting info is important. I love PINGs online fitting system for that. I also use gigagolf for...
