Ditched my Burner 2.0's for custom fitted Ping G 20's about 3 weeks ago. Never looked back.

Ditched my 2.0 Burners for a set of Callaway Razr-X HL's, earlier this year. Plan on staying with the Callaways.

I'm in the same boat as you, got down to a 9.4 index and ditched the burners for AP1 712's. They feel amazing compared to the Burners.  Noticed a 5 yard or so drop in distance

I was just about to reply and say "Don't blame the clubs!" until is saw Aangel's post. I currently own Adams irons because they are affordable but every Ping Iron set that I have borrowed or rented outperformed any set of clubs I ever owned. So I will change my reply to "Make sure you are fitted for your new set of irons by a professional".

Canned my Burner Plus' for custom G20's and I like them better. Learned golf first with Eye2's and felt like it was time to come back. Whatever you choose get fit and hit lots of different clubs.

got rid of my burner plus' for a set of fitted jpx800s. the offset was killing me, and my iron play is much better now.

you can always say it's not the club, but your confidence is directly tied into your swing so new clubs can be worth it if you feel solid when you stand over them.

I had Burner 1.0's (not much different than 2.0) and changed to 712 AP1's, which I was fitted for. Getting fit has helped, hit the AP1's more consistently as a result.

Bought a new set of custom fit G20 irons to replace my burner 1.0 and i really regret it. The burners 1.0 give you more feed back so you know if you miss hit it and the G20 are not that forgiving and you can't work the ball like you can with the burners and the burners are mutch longer. Went back with the burners and the G20s are for sale!!

Did the same thing. Switched from the 1.0's to the 712 AP1's. What a difference!

The Burner 2.0 is not an iron you necessarily outgrow. It can be played by accomplished players, as evidenced by it being used by tour players Kenny Perry and Natalie Gulbis in 2011. I still have mine as my backup set.

Two guys I play with regularly have them. I've hit them before, and they're good clubs, but they do have their limitations once you start getting to where you want to work the ball. I notice I have a hard time hitting a high cut with them, unlike my Mizuno's. As has been mentioned before, be prepared to lose some yardage when you switch. The 2.0's are built for distance.

    • Thank you! Got out for a few holes so it was a good day in spite of work!
    • 2/25: Played two rounds today with dad at a different course than usual. Shot 96 and 93. A few nice strings of pars and made several amazing putts (). Mostly bogeys other than that but managed a couple of absolute blow-up holes in each round that helped to guarantee 90+ scores from an otherwise very nice day of golf. I could complain about "sand-traps" sans-a-single-spec-of-sand with 10-foot wide puddles in them, or mushy fairways, or waiting 5-minutes for the 4-some in front of you on every shot, but there wasn't a notes field on the scorecard.  Practice is paying off, though. Hit my drives farther than ever, draws when I wanted them, and the fade didn't let me down when I needed it. 3/4 "flighted" shots are the new go-to approach of choice all the way out to 160+ with my 3-iron, and (n)GIRs have jumped up considerably. I've rambled on about my short-game improvements before, but it continues. Holed a pitch shot from about 10 yards and stopped 2 others 6 inches from the pin. Gotta play some more rounds from the front so I get used to stringing pars together. Realized today that I don't just get nervous about it, I also get cocky. Weird combination. 
    • I really like the travel of the sweetspot on the backswing. Kinda Nicklaus-esque.   They just stall a bit and it happens after impact. Can see how the belt loops are rotating all the way to impact.
    • At the top level the men may still be much better than the women at putting. Paige McKenzie once talked about how she played against some college guys who destroyed her on putting and she thought she was pretty good relative to her peers. I expect the best pro women ballstrikers have to work even less on putting to compete successfully than the guys where every edge is crucial just to get a card and make cuts. I love to watch Rory and DJ crank it out there. But I also get a kick out of Jim Furyk and Mo Martin's precision oriented play. It's all good. If they want to make accuracy more important for PGA players, all they have to do is grow the average event rough up a bit more so there's more of a penalty on every errant shot on the loss of spin and swing/ball speed reduction. Those are real issues for the sport...at least for facilities that don't cater to higher income golfers.
    • I have the Zepp 2 Golf (the round sensor).    Ive read the manual multiple times, and have approximately 500 ball strikes.    As I'm new to golf I can't seriously vouch for its accuracy, but I will say this: it's helping me improve my golf swing.    The 3D swing analysis is a great tool as is the swing comparison capability. In my opinion once you learn about what the tool measures and how it can be quite effective it    However, I do have a question: In the daily swings window, what does the red "P" next to the specific swing data mean?   Please and Thanks for any input.    V/R,  Chris
