Ditched my Burner 2.0's for custom fitted Ping G 20's about 3 weeks ago. Never looked back.

Ditched my 2.0 Burners for a set of Callaway Razr-X HL's, earlier this year. Plan on staying with the Callaways.

I'm in the same boat as you, got down to a 9.4 index and ditched the burners for AP1 712's. They feel amazing compared to the Burners.  Noticed a 5 yard or so drop in distance

I was just about to reply and say "Don't blame the clubs!" until is saw Aangel's post. I currently own Adams irons because they are affordable but every Ping Iron set that I have borrowed or rented outperformed any set of clubs I ever owned. So I will change my reply to "Make sure you are fitted for your new set of irons by a professional".

Canned my Burner Plus' for custom G20's and I like them better. Learned golf first with Eye2's and felt like it was time to come back. Whatever you choose get fit and hit lots of different clubs.

got rid of my burner plus' for a set of fitted jpx800s. the offset was killing me, and my iron play is much better now.

you can always say it's not the club, but your confidence is directly tied into your swing so new clubs can be worth it if you feel solid when you stand over them.

I had Burner 1.0's (not much different than 2.0) and changed to 712 AP1's, which I was fitted for. Getting fit has helped, hit the AP1's more consistently as a result.

Bought a new set of custom fit G20 irons to replace my burner 1.0 and i really regret it. The burners 1.0 give you more feed back so you know if you miss hit it and the G20 are not that forgiving and you can't work the ball like you can with the burners and the burners are mutch longer. Went back with the burners and the G20s are for sale!!

Did the same thing. Switched from the 1.0's to the 712 AP1's. What a difference!

The Burner 2.0 is not an iron you necessarily outgrow. It can be played by accomplished players, as evidenced by it being used by tour players Kenny Perry and Natalie Gulbis in 2011. I still have mine as my backup set.

Two guys I play with regularly have them. I've hit them before, and they're good clubs, but they do have their limitations once you start getting to where you want to work the ball. I notice I have a hard time hitting a high cut with them, unlike my Mizuno's. As has been mentioned before, be prepared to lose some yardage when you switch. The 2.0's are built for distance.

    • What'd You Shoot Today?
      76 today 36 on the front 40 on the back I started off hitting the ball better than I ever had. I didn't miss a fairway until somewhere on the back 9 and the only thing that kept me from going low was not being able to convert on key birdie opportunities. Had a real good look at shooting under par but I let my swing get a little quick on the final holes as I played the closing three at +4. Despite a couple errant tee shots and a 4 -putt (yes, a 4-putt...), this was a pretty clean round for me. I feel good going into a 4 day break.  
    • The Tiger Woods/PED Thread
      Tiger never got "so big." Have you seen the dude in person? He was not an imposing figure. This is a myth. I get that he can look pretty stacked on TV, but he's not: his shirts were tight, and he was fit, but he wasn't "so big." Like most men, he filled out from the time he was 20 until he was 26, 27…
    • The Tiger Woods/PED Thread
      Wrong again! I loved Tiger when he was out there dominating the game. He was great for golf, bringing new fans and attention to the sport. I attended the WGC Bridgestone in Akron when Tiger was in his ascendancy. I tried to follow him, but it was impossible! He had to be dragging 10,000 people around the course! But I, like many others, began to wonder when Tiger got so big. Remember when he first came on tour? A skinny string bean with big, thick glasses. When he showed up at Stanford it was his teammate, Notah Begay, who tagged him with the nickname "Urkel"! Even though Woods and Begay became friends, I don't think Tiger liked "Urkel" very much. And it's been reported that Tiger didn't like the idea of golfers not being considered "real" athletes either. So, if Tiger was juicing he never got caught. Neither did Bonds, Sosa or McGwire. There is no proof, but suspicions remain. It's kind of sad to see Tiger in his current state, trying to claw his way back to the tour. No doubt he has enough money to last the rest of his and his kid's lives, but you don't get to where he was unless you are competitive. I think that might be what Tiger misses the most. I just remembered that he named his yacht "Privacy" because, at the time, that is what he craved. Well, he has plenty of it now. Wonder how that's sitting with him?

      The story about the infamous crime lord Whitey Bulger. It starred Johnny Depp as Whitey Bulger. Benedict Cumberbatch played his brother, and US Senator Billy Bulger. This was an enthralling movie to watch. I give it a tap in Birdie. I give Johnny Depp an birdie performance. He was totally convincing playing Whitey Bulger.  Kung Fury
      This is a little gem I found when I was hanging out with my friends just skimming through Netflix. This is a movie that was crowd funded through kickstarter. It has that cheesy 80's action movie coupled with cheesy kung-fu movie feel to it. It just works brilliantly to give you an over the top 30 minutes of enjoyment. I give it an birdie for outstanding exaggerated fun and enjoyment.

      Watching Steph make clutch 3s from mid court routinely must be like watching Spieth putt those 15-20 footers knowly there always a chance goes in no matter how tough the green is
