I was wondering if anyone has these in their irons:


If so, could you please tell me what your ball height is like in the longer irons? Also, what type of trajectory? Piercing? Elevated/Rising?

Any information would be greatly appreciated!

I have em in my back up mp60's.

Great shafts, i am considering putting them in my MP-32's to be honest and ditching the X100's.

The long iron ball flight is great. Simple as that, they have a piercing trajectory for me, with enough spin that my 4 iron rolled out about 3 yards on most shots. Felt powerful, and transfered feedback very well. I have hit ProjX, X100, S300, rifles, everything, and they are by far my favorite shaft.

You cant go wrong with em. They are responsive, as you can hit a 9 iron to the sky and bring it in soft, and the next swing can hit a low spinner, they are really just beautiful.

plus the colors are neat lol.

I've only played one round with them before so be sure to take experience for what it is, anecdotal. It should also be noticed that I tried these out a set of r7 TP's, everything else on the clubs was stock/standard. The ball flight on the short mid irons (6-PW) was mid or average and climbed at an even pace. The long irons on the other hand (the 3-5 iron) seemed to rise much more quickly and stay high, in comparison to other shafts I've used. I felt the short irons had a bigger kick on impact and caused more spin. The longer irons seemed to have less kick and emphasized more on carry than spin. What I liked about them was that they felt really smooth while still giving a generous amount of feedback. I also noticed that I picked up about 5-8 extra yards per club. What I did not like about them was the soft tip, it seemed even softer than my project X high launches, which are pretty soft. So while I gained more distance I felt I gave up some accuracy and shot dispersion. It could be (I don't have the specs in front of me) but the butt section also seemed wider than the S300's I used to play (maybe to make up for that soft tip section), which I wasn't to fond of....probably a mental thing. Overall I felt like I was almost playing different shafts in the short irons, and those were solid, I felt the feedback was less in the long irons and had an odd ballflight....I didn't like those. Just my .02

    • Yea, I really thought Sean McVay was the guy who would crack the code too, so it definitely surprised me when he just didn't adjust. I hope he learned something, but I guess we'll have to see next year how his coaching tendencies change, if at all. The three points they ended up scoring was certainly a shocker. I was confident that the under would come through, but 16 total points was pretty shocking to me. 
    • I am incline to believe that fake balls are best for practicing swing mechanics. That one should not rely on the flight of these plastic/foam balls for swing results. Especially when used with longer swings.  I have a box of Taylor Made foam balls I sometimes use. They are quite safe to use indoors. Outdoors  they work ok, as long as there is no wind.  However, my favorite practice "fake" balls are those "Birdie Balls". The ones that look like a short piece of pvc pipe. (they are NOT made out of pvc). They seem to mimic ball flights better than the plastic/foam balls, while still being extremely range limited. I also believe these birdie balls are more suited for outdoor use. Obviously a draw back is you can't putt with them. 
    • They taste good, but are way too greasy, to the point of sogginess.  I’ve always said that McDonald’s is the gold standard in fries. Looks like I’m not the only one…
    • I just saw the Golf Channel's tribute to "Gene the Machine". I was truly fortunate enough to watch him play Billy Casper in an 18 hole Monday playoff at the 1970 Masters. I was a sophomore in college and our biology professor gave a friend and me his tickets (and permission to cut his class). It was my first time to actually see an actual tournament round having only attended practice rounds while in high school. There wasn't much drama as Casper won 69 to 74. There weren't many patrons in attendance and it was a very intimate setting to watch two great players up close and personal. I don't remember much about how they played except that Casper hit a screaming hook into the trees on number 2. As a hooker myself I received some solace in seeing a touring pro do that and still make par. Also, it was the last 18 hole playoff in Masters history. The 1979 Masters ending in a tie was decided by a sudden death playoff won on #11 (the second playoff hole) by Fuzzy Zoeller over Ed Sneed and Tom Watson. Because of that experience I've always been fond of both Littler and Casper.
    • McVay was going against Belicheck. He should’ve known that before the game and accepted he’d have to make rapid adjustments and not just ‘stick to a game plan.’ Yeah....sounds like coaching played a huge role in that loss.
