I'm not going to repeat what most people have already said, it's redundant.    However,  I was fortunate enough to spend a few years of my childhood in a house adjacent to the 7th tee of a private country club.  When it was dusk and I was sure there weren't any more groups, I would head out to the green with my Nerf putter and putt around.  This is what got me interested in golf.  Even though we lived in a nice area, we couldn't afford the golf membership or golf...
    I don't know if you are being facetious or not, but Cobra is not inferior to TaylorMade, it's just a matter of preference.  They no longer have the budget to have as many guys on their staff (Puma has equal revenue as Fortune Brands [Acushnet], but their operating budget has decreased after the sale), but that does not imply that their stuff is crap.  I've played Cobra in the past, and I would say their equipment was actually slightly higher quality than TM.  And...
Uh... what's your budget?  Do you have a brand preference?  Do you prefer forged or cast irons?  The thing is, all major manufacturers make great products, it comes down to preference.  Get fitted (you will hear this a lot) and decide what kind of coin you are willing to drop.  if you can play to an 8 with your Berthas, then you probably don't need anything game improvement.  My preference would be Pings or Mizunos (those are the 2 brands I play almost exclusively) with...
The addition of a lob wedge is a personal call, and many "experts" say that high-mid handicappers don't need anything more lofted than a sand wedge.  What's your game like?  Do you need more loft in your short game?  I am trying to ween myself off of my 60* wedge, as it usually contributed more harm than good.  I have a grind on my SW that helps me open it up a lot more, so the LW is becoming redundant anyway.  For someone with your handicap (a mid capper like myself),...
The course I play the most is Flemming, the 9 hole course at Harding Park.  Harding Park (the 18 hole course) is expensive and you usually have to book a tee time weeks in advance, but it's definitely worth it.  Also,  I play Lincoln and Sharp Park (in Pacifica), but Sharp is in pretty bad shape as of late and Lincoln is not my favorite course, other than the 17th hole.  Presidio Course is a nice course, but it's a little out of my price range to play regularly.  And if...
Sometimes people get too hung up on loft and having 4-6 degrees between all clubs. It would be more useful to know how far you hit those "bridge" clubs, because distance is what you are after. With my last bag, I had driver to 4 wood to 4 iron and it worked out well.
Strange question. What would the characteristics of these blades be? Would they be cast? What about the Vokey name would make them any better or more unique? The one trait people like most about Vokey wedges is their tear drop shape (based on Cleveland designs) and spin milled grooves. The latter would not be applicable to longer irons. I guess it would be cool (?) to some people that their irons said Bob Vokey on them...
I wanted to like it, my swing had other ideas. At the time, I needed help getting the ball higher, but this combo launched way too high with a spin rate in excess of 3000. This caused balooning and, ultimately, loss of carry distance. But it really is dependent on YOUR swing. If you are swinging over 95 mph, then you need a stiffer shaft than an R flex anyway.
I agree with your assessment of Nike, but I think that aligns with the mass market segment of SC. You don't think pushing putter headcovers for obscene prices is "pushing products aggressively"?
Yeah, as Enis said, this will launch very high. I tried this combo (and I prefer a higher flight with a high kick) but I was moonballing. A medium flight shaft would be a red board (I know it's not a standard offering for Ping) or a Proforce V2 (not high launch), like I am gaming with my G10. It's a broken record mantra, but get fitted.
