Re: Ball Recommendation: 100 mph Swing, 9 Handicap
Went back to Golf Galaxy tonight - that makes 3 nights in a row! lol I tested the Mizuno MP-52 and MP-62 irons because I did not have my MP-14s with me. Club head speed using the conversion chart on the wall was right around 81-82 mph. I was using a 6 iron and the conversion chart is for a 5 iron if that matters (I couldn't find the 5 irons in either set). My driver is still 142-146 ball speed, or right around 100 mph swing speed. Seems like a big difference between iron and driver, 20 mph.
I couldn't get ball-fitted because no one was able to assist me with that. My question is, perhaps (a) I should not be using stiff shafts in my irons and (b) a pro-v1x or callaway tour ix might be too firm of a ball, when considering my iron club head speed???
The guy near the counter, when I was looking at balls, said that I wouldn't benefit from the v1x but also that iron club speed is not too big of a factor and to go more by driver speed. He said the tourix is a sweet ball which is durable, though and everyone loves the Bridgestone 330RX. I dunno. I do know that I want a mid to higher trajectory ball especially with my irons. Loved the MP-52s by the way!
