Titleist 755 vs Nike pro combo forged

8 posts in this topic

Hi guys . I am now a 15 handicapper and play high 70s . I am currently playing my old ancient lynx master model blades which give me very little forgiveness as they are and frankly i'm getting bored with them . :D
I have my eye on a set of Nike pro combo forged irons; the ones which start out as cavities and work towards musclebacksand eventually blades.also included are a set of Titleist forged 755 irons :XD
Now i know u guys are gonna say to try them out and pick the set which feels better so i've already gone ahead and done that. Both irons feel exactly the same and give the same distance and spin and loft. Except that the shaft of the nike's is thicker at the grip end as compared to the clubhead end. whereas the titleist shft is sort of same throughout. what that means is that on the nikes the grip is larger in diameter as compared to the 755's . Both have the same length give or take a 1 cm or so. Need ure input as to which one to buy. Any comments wud be highly appreciated. :D

Well the shafts are going to both be tapered meaning that they will start skinny and get bigger toward the butt. Trust me, the titleist shaft is not the same from head to grip. Wilson tried that with the fat shaft and failed miserably. I myself have a set if 755, but i upgraded shafts and put some dynamic black gold shafts in. My vote is going to be for the 755s

I really enjoyed the Pro Combos when I played them. It was cheaper for me to get a set of used Titleist 735CMs than to re-shaft them or I would've kept playing them. Good feel, though I liked the 735CMs better...

I would probably go with the 775s, all else being equal. But, in the end, I would go with the better buy. So, if you won't have to reshaft the Pro Combos but would have to reshaft the 775s I would buy the Pro Combos unless you just flat out prefer the 775s.

Thnx fr the input guys. Appreciate it.
I got a pros input on the clubs i was chasing and after having him look at my swing he completely ruled out the pro combos. Said they were really difficultto hit so thats that for the nikes . not gonna argue with him.
He gave me his cg gold to hit and wow i was impressed with that. so i am now on the lookout fr a set of cleveland cg red or gold irons. Thank u pro :D
As for the titleist's it was still better feeling than the clevelands but then again he preffered the clevelands. i know what ure gonna say that i shuldnt let his choice overpower mine but i'm gonna take his advice and take the cg's. Still gonna play a few rounds beore any decisions are made. :D

Why in the world would you play a club that doesn't feel as good to you just because someone says you should?

what i meant to say was that the titleist are slightlybetter feeling than the cg's. Not really a great deal of difference except for on the slight mishits on which i actually prefer the cg. still im gonna play a few rounds with both of them before making my decision.

    • The most esoteric golf tournament name ever...
    • Hey all, we are off and running.  My #1 shot a 79 at a collegiate course where we played the "white tee positions" for the majority of the tournament.  She was working on an exceptional round when she triple bogeyed hole 18.  She is real long off of the tee.  She is rock solid on the green.  Word is finally out there about her and I've worked hard at getting her name in front of college coaches.  After this showing (2nd) she has received 5 emails from 5 colleges this week.  Tonight, she shot par on our home course.  That is a great feat since our course was under water a week ago.  The fairways are not good and there is now a lot of standing water and GUR.  The next golfer was 5 shots behind and she is the #1 for a traditionally state ranked team.  Unfortunately, the rest of my team didn't do so well.  We play tomorrow again. It will be a major chore.  These mosquitoes are gigantic.  I have welts all over me and I sprayed a couple of times.  My #2 shot a 51 and looks like she has hives.  Her mosquito repellent can was  empty and I didn't know it until she was on hole #5.  She said that she was playing in a cloud of mosquitoes.  Tonight, I had my wife go buy new Deep Woods Off for every player.  We will put a can in each player's bag.  I've never seen anything like this but the corn fields around the course are all still under water.  Some Notes: My golfers have a hard time learning how to line up their shots.  We work on various things but it doesn't sink in for some time. My players have swings that are too long.  Most look like John Daley and so, I have to help them control that back swing better.  We spend a lot of time working on putting and we putted really well tonight.  The problem is, we didn't get off the tee box in good fashion due to alignment.  We have trouble everywhere and our course is very tight.  My softball player turned golfer as a favor to me will play as #4 tomorrow.  She has played golf for exactly 2 weeks now.  We have trees everywhere.  I have to teach all of my players how to hit stingers low and long.  I have three players that can do so and draw the ball doing it.  We shot a 205 as a team tonight.  That isn't very good.  Tomorrow, we have to do a lot better.  (We still beat a couple of teams since the conditions were so bad.  It was also 100+ heat index)
    • Yeah, the ex-marshal did go a bit overboard. Not sure if he would have really pulled the trigger or not, though. One thing for sure, the thief will think twice before attempting to steal club again. In fact, anyone reading the article might give it a second thought.   That's kind of true.
    • I apologize guys....heres the video
    • I just can't narrow it down to one or two items... Stihl MS 180 chainsaw - 12 years of heavy use and it simply won't die. Even dropped an ash tree on it years ago. I have a larger Stihl but prefer to use the little fella. It may be starting to lose compression. If so, I'll buy the same model as a replacement. Carvin solid body electric. Love this guitar. I also have a Guild Starfire IV Semi-hollow body electric which is a beautiful instrument. I play the Carvin a lot more. iMac (purchased in 2007). I'd love to get a new Mac Mini, but this thing is still running strong going on 10 years - even if 60 fps, 1080 video doesn't run very well on it. Firearms and reloading equipment. All of it. Have to get back into reloading. 2004 Silverado 1500. The Northern Winters have taken a toll on her. Stays parked a lot now but is still my all-time favorite vehicle.
