Thanks for the invite and for starting the "Niblick Army" Group!

I own the old (and better) zip groove models and have all the lofts:

37, 42, 49 and 56.

I play them as my 8 iron, 9 iron, PW and SW respectively.

There is literally never a round where I do not use all of them -extensively. And they have saved me countless strokes on my scorecard.

FYI: I put oversized grips on mine and this helps insure less " wristyness" when hitting the delicate shots around the green.

I have indeed played the 56 degree Niblick with a traditional bunker sand blast shot -open face . It works well out of deeper or fluffy sand but you must be careful since it has a 14 bounce...personally at my club where sand is often thin or muddy I just hit a kind of chip shot towards the hole letting the clubs weight do the work..this ..works well if you follow through straight out and not across yourself-easy once you get the hang of it.... if not you can chili dip it!

@stogiesnbogies

thank you so much. That's better solidified my belief that a Niblick or several Niblicks would do nothing but benefit me and are useful for Chips, Pitchs, Approaches, mad Recovery. Glad to see the 56* performed well in the sand.

I wonder if Dick's carries them. I know there is a Golf Galaxy and a PGA Superstore in Paramaus NJ. I may be taking a trip there or to an online vendor or auction site.

Thanks again for the help.

I currently own the 2011 42* with graphite shaft and recently added the 2011 56* with steel shaft (Van's only had this demo and had none with the graphite shaft).  I'm primarily a walking golfer, and I usually carry a Ping Moonlite bag with eight clubs: D, 3h, 5i, 7i, 9i, 42* niblick, 56* niblick, putter.  The 42* doubles as my PW/GW on full shots, and is great for pitch and runs, and the 56* is my primary pitching/sand club.  Ironically, I rarely use the 42* for chipping--it's too hard to judge the run with it--and usually I'll chip with my 9i, which was my chipping club before I got the niblicks.
