I'm a rather young golfer...coming up on 1 year this summer. My first set of irons were the rather nice SGI Wilson Deep Red II Distance 3-SW. Cheap, Brand new on ebay, and easy to hit. I live in an area where snow ruins the golf fun for me but lucky enough to have a "golf dome" 74 or so yards long. So mostly meant to work on contact, consistency, trajectory, ETC. I've picked up the game rather quickly shooting mid 80s. (don't care to take the time and find out my handicap. why make golf more complicated?) But after working on my contact and recently buying a tour striker which has improved my pressure upon contact with the ball, i realized that i reached my all around potential with my DR2D's,and forgiving qualities were rather TOO forgiving and i needed more precision.
I'm sold on wilson irons. own the fairway. its true. so im not really willing to hear about mizunos and bridgestones and nikes or callys. I need a club to take me to the next level and i dont mind a club that needs "playing into". Ive found out my swing is stuck in Reg flex and the fatshaft i play thats regular plays more like stiff. Ive tried the Fg tours in only stiff recently and loved them. Beautiful clubs and look like they are forged from diamond. crisp at contact. and i also hit the Ci9s in reg. and they also felt buttery soft, and noticeable "CRACK" on off center hits which i like. I need to know if ive done a shotty job. and i like the looks of these as well. Busy looking? nahh not even the slightest with the stupid "RAZR" and nike emblems. I just need help.
Fg tours are supposed to have lower flight which means slightly more run-off.
ci9s are the opposite.
feel are completely different yet i feel i could excel with either club and at address there is little difference really...both players clubs.
ANY HELP AT ALL WOULD BE AWESOME. why you like them. tried both? consistency? distance losses or gains? rifle shaft opinions? and obvious R300 shaft opinions...? or even the difference out of rough lies. just really any help would be great. I'm young... college kid. but im willing to pay money for clubs since i'll have them for at least 2 seasons maybe..and custom fit (1' long 1' up i think)...love this game and want to love it more =)
