Titleist 755 vs Nike pro combo forged

Recommended Posts

tsajjad    0
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.

    • Obviously I can't offer much in the way of advice but in the last year my 5w has gone from one of my most trusted clubs to one that causes anxiety. What has helped me is coming down at a slightly steeper angle of attack and simply concentrating on hitting a bit more down on the ball... not like an iron, but less of that "sweeping" attack as is often suggested. Good luck and I hope someone can provide some useful advice.
    • I am extremely comfortable chipping from the rough compared to the fairway. I am not exactly sure why, and I know I need to get some lessons. (I plan on getting some in the spring since its already so late in year up here in PA.) In my approach I would much rather put it left, right, or far then to leave it short. I feel this way because its a lot easier to get the ball up and down sitting right were you want it. I am talking from within 40 yards. When in the fairway I have distance control problems within 40 yards. I feel its because of the inconsistency of the launch angle. If I hit it to hard the angle is to low and I launch over the green and if I hit it to soft the angle is to high and just comes up short.  I just wanted to see if anyone else felt the same way or if this was typical for a high handicapper to like the rough from within 40 yards?
    • That's a substantial improvement. I'm certain I won't experience any increase in distance but at this point, distance isn't even on the radar. I practiced a bit more tonight and decided shortening the driver won't fix my issues. I have to swing sooooo slow to get decent ball flight. As a result, I'm losing 10 - 20 yards from what GameGolf said I was averaging (219). 
    • I play around 3 times a week and usually score in the 78-83 range with a few outliers, both better and worse. In the last two weeks or so, I have seen the worst round in probably 5 years or more, a really unusual 111 (was 102 ESC'd) and it was the only score above 98 this year out of 100 rounds or so. After a redeeming 79, I shot another score in the 90s, at 95 (92 ESC'd). Both of the stinkers had some horrendous fairway woods, some even leading to penalty strokes (hit of the very end of the toe, dead right), with both the 5 wood and the 3 wood. I spent some time on the range trying to work this out, putting the ball on a peg at first, and lowering it progressively until the ball sits on the ground. While I am able to hit somewhat decently from a tee somewhat raised (but not quite as nicely as I was able to before this ongoing episode), I am totally unable to hit the ball sitting on the ground. Nearly every shot is topped and some are nearly whiffed! The 5 wood is/was one of my favorite clubs... I went out and played another round where the short game saved me with an 81, but once again mishit severely most of my fairway woods shots. For some reason, one was ok with the 5 wood. I am leaving the 3 wood in the bag until this is sorted out, but confidence has really taken a toll... I went online and looked for "topped fairway wood" and found several things to be mindful of. Perhaps I am swaying a bit on the takeaway and not getting back to the ball or hanging back. Perhaps the ball position is too far forward or the strike too level or too steep? I am not feeling like I am doing anything different from before, when I had no problem with that shot. So what gives? All in my head? Thanks for your insight.
