Looking to trade clubs feedback

7 posts in this topic

New to the board hi all, Looking to trade a set of back up clubs that I have which are the nike slingshot 07 I believe. For the MP-60. Im looking for an advanced set of clubs so I think these mind fit what I'm looking for. I'm currently playing Nike ignite 3 which I like a lot but like I said the MP-60 would be a set that I work on at the range until I can actually hit them well. Give me some feed back thx.

Better off selling your clubs on ebay and using that money to buy clubs. Gives you the upper hand versus having a trade in and hoping the store will give you a decent amount.

The thing is I'm trading with a friend who can't hit the MP-60s so I figured I can trade the Nike slingshot for his MP-60s

Just make sure you are both happy with the deal. Friendship over business.

I love my Mizuno irons. But mine are not a manly as the MP-60's. The MP-60's are billed as a club for low handicappers. The focus was on feel and not forgiveness or adding distance. I think my swing is just on the edge of good enough to hit the MP-53's which are the easiest to hit of the MP line.

You are a 15 handicap. If you think you are on your way to a 5 and lower, these may be great for you. The are classically beautiful IMO. If you want them just for practice, they should give you plenty of feedback on mishits -- and if it was me using them, there would be plenty of mishits. I predict that if you do hit them, and you hit one on the sweet spot, you will want to feel that again and again and do anything you can to make another good swing.

Thx. As I stated in almost every reply the MP-60s would be my range clubs until I feel comfortable enough to take them on the course. This is a trade with a friend that can't hit them at all so I'm helping him out more then myself but at the same time I want to try hitting some clubs that are more advance before I drop a few hundred on more advanced clubs. I'm currently hitting the Nike Ignite 3 which for me, I like, plenty of forgiveness but I can strike it well with them and I feel I can move up in clubs now I mean I hit my 4 iron 210 with the Nike's I have now and PW 145-150

    • If lessons from an instructor were not available, I might suggest a visit to the local library, or internect connection, and read up on the basics of the swing. Address position, grip, and a one piece take away to the top of the swing. I wouldn't worry about anything else, untill I had a working understanding of those three items.  Once I understood the above items, I would move on the more finer points of the golf swing, a little at the time.  Too many times I think golfers over load themselves with swing mechanics, with out fully understanding these mechanics, and how they relate to each other. Frustration sets in, and they don't improve, or worse yet they quit. 
    • Sometimes, it takes a guy a couple of years to find his game again after winning one or more majors. After a major win, I've heard they go on so many paid exhibitions and travel so much doing so that it wears them out, and can affect their swing. But Jordan's worked on his swing over the last year; and it could be he needs another set of eyes, or a consultant to assist his instructor.
    • You are not yet 40, so yes you can definitely get more distance. But, it will come down to a couple physical factors: flexibility, muscle control, muscle speed, and coordination.  It sounds like you have some coordination and control, you just have to learn how to properly let the club head go and know how to create ideal launch conditions.  A pro can certainly help.   You don't have to be fred couples or john daly to hit the ball long.  At 8 months, you most likely don't fully trust the swing yet.  Once, you start trusting yourself more, you'll be able to let it go more and get some distance.
    • 2017 D&D Invitational Pretty tight leaderboard with some big names, going out in threesomes due to weather threats.  Should make for some good watching. Simpson has been trending this year of late.  He's back on with his putting after several changes since the anchoring ban.  I'm rooting for him. I also like the D&D shops.  Ridiculously high dollar, but some good eats.
    • It's tough to answer without knowing your physical abilities, but my guess is that you will gain some distance since you've only been at it 8 months. In reading your post, you seem to be a student of the game. What I like is that you are not bothered by this right now - except as a gauge for improvement. In my opinion (I'm not very experienced) and as you stated, trying to keep up with others can be very detrimental. Be patient, and keep learning and developing your mechanics. Distance will come.
