No I did not get those clubs, and to be honest I wasn't ready to pull the trigger on them, they just seemed to exhibit the amount of wear that most used clubs I've looked at do, so I thought it would be a good example to ask about. I hit the Mizuno MP64's and absolutely loved them. I know they don't "match up" with my handicap, but I did not have a problem hitting them at all. Sure I would get the occasional mishit but usually when I mishit it's so bad that even a cavity...
Just to make sure I'm understanding correctly, the grooves affect the amount of spin put on the ball, correct? Are there any other areas that "wear out" to the point where the club becomes inefficient, or are the grooves and the sole of the club the main areas that you want to look at?
Here is a quick link to an ebay auction I saw with some Mizuno MP63's. The title describes them as "nice" but they certainly don't look new by any means. I'm just wondering if this wear is reasonable and whether they still have plenty of life left in them.   I know forged clubs are softer and wear out quicker so I don't want something that is only going to be good for a year. Would the clubs in this auction be considered good, fair, or poor for used condition?   Thanks...
I actually got to hit a set of Titleist AP2 714's at the range as well, I really liked them and didn't really notice any difference between the two except the MP64's seemed a bit heavier.    I see a set of AP2 710's for a good price and I've been researching the differences, but are there any major things I should know about the difference between the two?
I used to play a lot but haven't for about a decade. I played quite a bit this year and my handicap is dropping again, but as it stands I'm around an 18. I hit a used set of MP64s at the range the other day and I loved them. I had some bad hits, but even slight misses didn't seem to be penalized too badly. The only problem is the price. I've seen some say the MP60s are close, but the design of the back looks quite different. Are there other muscle back designs that...
About a month and a half ago I had an intercoastal tear which hurt so bad I couldn't even think about swinging a club. My short irons and wedges are fine now and I can take full swings with them with no injury. However, long irons still cause a great deal of problems for me. I know that I tend to hit long irons on the toe of the club, and a 5 iron is what I was swinging when I got the tear and what I was swinging when it hurt me again the other day. Is there someone wrong...
I didn't mean to sound arrogant if that's how I came off. What I meant is, I would like to have forgiveness but I also want to be able to work the ball in the future and I don't want to have to buy new clubs to do that.   I've tried hitting a 4 hybrid but I just cannot ever get a good hit with it, that's why I was leaning more towards a fairway wood because I can hit 3 woods pretty consistently. I'm not sure why I can hit a wood but not a hybrid, but that seems to be the...
I started golfing when I was around 6 and played very well for several years but ended up losing interest for whatever reason. 20 years later I'm getting back into it and I'm beginning the process of buying some nice clubs. I already bought a Callaway Razr Fit Xtreme driver (10.5*) and an Odyssey White Hot Pro V-Line putter.   My handicap now is around 20 but I've been improving with every game as I get my groove back so I'm looking to get some clubs that I can "grow...
