hey guys, I'm new to the forum as a member but have spent some time reading on it over the past few months. I was looking for anyone's 2 cents on possibly selecting a set of new irons
I currently play with 2005 Taylormade Rac LT irons which i have been using for 7 yrs now. From what i can tell, these are a mid size, semi cavity iron. I like the look & feel of them. I've never been a big fan of the big bulky cavity backs, and I'm also a decent enough player to where I can play something slightly smaller. However, a pro club fitter told me once that the stock size shafts were 3/4 inch too short for my 6'3 frame.
So basically my 2 options are to get these extended or reshafted & regripped. (cost is about $200-300)
Or do i go get a new set for $800-1000? I always seem to see people saying that iron technology hasn't changed much.
If i decide to get a new set, what are some similar style irons to the Rac LT's i currently have? My buddy recently got some ping g25's and i personally find them on the bulkier large cavity side.
I have gone to a few stores to window shop and the ones that i seem to like are:
Callaway X pro
Callaway X forged
Mizuno MP59 (ive always like the look of mizuno's but im lefty and they only make a few models in LH, this being one of them)
I obviously wouldn't want to get a set of clubs are too hard to hit, thats my main concern. I'm a decent golfer (when im playing well im in the 83-88 range, ive never broken 80)
I have good hand eye coordination from my baseball days so i feel like i am a decent ball striker.
Any thoughts, please share. Thanks!
