Here's a (not very good look) at my set. I've demoed the Burner 2.0s and these are nearly identical in terms of look and feel.CIMG0430.jpgCIMG0438.jpgCIMG0432.jpgCIMG0434.jpg

Thanks for the pics. What shafts did you have installed?

I'd love to see more pics of the 3w and hybrid too.

I went with the firm flex TT FeatherFlight shafts on the irons, stiff FeatherFlight in the wedges, and the stock stiff UST 70 and 80 shafts in the 3 wood and hybrid.  I've always played TT dynamic gold S300s in my irons so I was a little worried when their fitter suggested the featherflights and firm shafts - wasn't sure if I'd like the lighter club weight and added flex, but so far I love these shafts.  I had them cut down .5", so perhaps that firmed them up a bit. 

 

I found the torque on the UST 70 on the 3 wood was too high for me.  The club felt entirely too "whippy" and I was getting a ballooning ball flight and losing distance.  I was barely hitting it 200 yards - compared to my old three wood that I hit in the 240 range.  I've sent it back to have a stiff M2T shaft installed, so we'll see how that works out. 

 

Didn't have any issues with the UST 80 on the hybrid though.  I'm just killing that club.  Been playing it off the tee on tighter holes and it's pretty much automatic - 210 yards & dead straight. 

 

Just to give you an idea of how the shaft flexes are performing in the context of swing speed - I was on the launch monitor at GolfMart this weekend and my driver swing speed was pretty much locked in at 108mph.

 

Also got an SP3 putter - an anser-style blade - and so far it's been an upgrade over my Nickent pipe putter.  Since it was so cheap I'm planning to experiment with it a bit.  Going to cut it down to 31.5", add some tungsten powder to get the swingweight up to D3, and slap a Fatso grip on it before the weekend.  I really struggle with overactive hands, so I'm hoping this set-up will get me headed in the right direction.

 

I'll try to get some additional pics of the hybrid up in the next day or two.

I have had the GX922 for a few years now and they still perform remarkably. I also bought a scoring wedge and the TRX driver. I hit the driver further than anyone with a "name brand" club. I also paid a heck of a lot less than them. I am a big hitter but I have borrowed other drivers and had no change for the better. Ended up buying a putter and hybrid from gigagolf too. The quality is great and everything is lasting.

I currently gaming the trx series: irons fairway and hybrid.
I couldn't be happier with the clubs, I have had no quality issues whatsoever and they have held up well.
When I miss shots I can be confident it was me and not the clubs.
I wouldn't hesitate to buy from Giga again.
My friend also has the gx series but we can't really compare because he's 6 10 and this is the first set that fit him.
I'd say buy the Giga clubs and get the trx series. Although the gx driver looks great too.

I use the GX922's and they have been nice clubs. I know they're advertised as being comparable Callaway X22 but they're probably more like X20s which really doesn't make much difference.  You can curve the ball with these....I do it all the time...unintentionally.  Although they are game improvement clubs, the 4 and 5 irons are still not super easy to hit consistently.  I wish they had a steel shaft option with a low kickpoint when I ordered mine.  If you use graphite shafts, that shouldn't be an issue.

I've had the Z4 irons for a few weeks now.  The only other irons I've owned are my fathers 25 year old, way to short for me Pings, so I don't have a lot to compare them to, but I'm happy with the purchase.  The quality looks flawless, and I hit them pretty well.  I honestly don't love the looks, but I didn't feel like spending the extra $35 or so to get the TRX instead.  Not ugly, just not the best looking.  Overall, I'm quite happy with the purchase, especially at the price that they're selling for.

I've decided to take a chance with GigaGolf after reading these wonderful reviews of people that have and are playing their clubs. I've been doing some research and I've been looking for a good forged iron and I've decided to take a chance and go with the c510 irons. I've been hitting a few differed forged clubs the last few days and while my heart is sold on the Wilson FG's my pocketbook (broke college student) says otherwise. Will give updates as I go along. Should be here Thursday.

Which gi/sgi iron has the toughest finish?

post #30 of 33

Well the clubs came in today and I decided to go to the range. Interesting day. The first set of balls I went through rather quickly. I had some trouble at first adjusting to the clubs (The c510's have a really interesting feel to them) so I got another bucket of balls. On the second bucket, I started to find my swing and spent the vast majority of the time hitting the five iron. I am really impressed with the quality of the clubs. The five felt very very comfortable. I wouldn't say I enjoyed hitting the set as much as I liked hitting the Wilson FG's (just a completly different feel. The Wilson's have a much more buttery feel compared to the Giga's) but I did enjoy the clubs. I can't wait to take them out again tomorrow. For the money, it's a very nice set. I will keep updating as I learn the feel of these clubs more and more.

So update for day 2: Went out a few hours ago and started hitting again. This time around, I made contact with all clubs and started to develope distance with the clubs. Still not where I want the distance to be (as compared to how I hit with my Big Bertha's). However, I was able to hit on average about 175-180 with the five ( which is about 10 yards off of what I was hitting with the Callaways). Finding that I am liking the irons more and more each time I take them out. The one thing I've noticed over other Irons I've hit is that I am able to control the shot much more and hit much straighter than anything else. Will continue to update as I learn more. I'm thinking of taking the set out for a round sometime next week.

I game the pursuit m510 very good club very long
Check your loft compared to the berthas you will see the c510 are more tradional so your probably a club down I found once I got used to my clubs about three holes in my seven iron is about 165 about 10 yards longer than I'm used to. 7-pw fly long straight and reliable. Very good club and feel. My 2 cents worth. I have there 5 wood 240 straight 4 hy 210 dead on 5 hy 190 very good clubs put against any buddies 600 dollar bag anytime

Thank you so much Super Plumber! I'll check that out and adjust accordingly. I really like the feel of this set so much more than the Bertha's. Again, I'll let you know more as soon as I figure more out. Oh, and I have the Gap Wedge from the M510's. Interesting blade to say the least. Fun to hit with.
