New clubs = new found slice? Help

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hi, I had an old set of taylormade firesole irons, these were okay but they were old technology and weren't very consistent while also unforgiving for non-perfect swings, they had a bubble shaft too.
I have recently purchased taylormade burner 1.0 irons and although they feel okay I keep slicing them, it can't be my swing as i didn't slice my last ones, and i don't slice my driver or woods, the new shafts are steel "uni flex"
i've used them a few times so is it just a fact of needing to get used to them or do i need to change my swing to suit?

The weights and lengths of the clubs are very similar

Thanks, James :)

It could be the weighting of the new clubs.

 

The older clubs might have a little more weight in the toe of the club promoting it to turn over and hiding the slicing.

 

Do you slice your driver or any other clubs?

how would I fix this, would it just naturally come while playing?
and no bar the odd bad swing i generally hit my woods and driver straight

Go to a local driving range and hit some shots with them. 

 

It probably is just a matter of new clubs needing to be broken in, so to speak.

 

Plus needing to adapt from old iron tech that was in the firesole may feel different than the newer tech in the burners.

 

Moral is try and hit shots with them and get used to them.

I went to the range and was still slicing a bit but realized it was me, I could feel my self cutting across the ball and was even doing if with my three wood
I also hit it perfectly straight with a three quarter swing
Not sure how to fix it though :-/
