Looking for

3 posts in this topic

Hi all,

I am looking for game improvement irons. I have had the A3OS and the Redlines from Adams.  What newer tech is available for me?

I have a herniated disk and my swing speed is about 90mph.

I loved the feel of the G15's from Ping with the graphite shaft and reg flex - black dot

thank you in advance.

Ok. So I went and hit a bunch...

Adams A12OS - graphite - Rflex

Adams CB3 - KBS steel tour90 - Rflex

Adams Idea V4 - graphite - Rflex

Ping K15 - Graphite - Rflex

Titleist AP1712 - Graphite - Rflex

Callaway XHot - Graphite - Rflex

I want to try the Callaway razr x hybrids

But I really liked the CB3's with steel, the Titleist  AP1 712, and the Ping K15's. Ping was the easiest to swing. Titleist felt heavy but swung true. The CB3 was nice and I know that if I get loose I will have it go everywhere. It seems that I could learn to shape the shots with this one.

I play e 712 AP1's so I'm a bit biased toward them. It came down to the AP1's or G15's at the time. The Titleists just looked better at address. Ping has cleaned the G's up, the new G25's look a lot better and have been getting great reviews. Maybe give those a look along with the others on your list.

    • I love my chiropractor and I love getting adjusted. I could get adjusted every day wether I need it or not. I probably crack my own neck myself more violently than the chiro does.

    • Not necessarily true.  Grounding the club when your ball lies in rough is equally risky.  By not grounding the club, if the ball moves when the player did not even touch the grass near it, I would be inclined to rule it as a act of God.  If he grounds the club or takes a practice swing in the immediate vicinity, then I call the penalty.  That is still true even under the theoretically less penal rule in today's rule book.  Reverting to the previous version wouldn't change that in any significant way. I have been in a windy situation where the ball sitting up in heavy rough never really seemed to be at rest - it was sort of fluttering with the wind gusts that were moving the grass.  I've also seen a player be penalized (correctly) for causing a ball lying in fairway grass to move after taking a practice swing more than a foot away from the ball.   Every ruling must be treated as a unique incident, and the more you allow the referee latitude in making his decision, the more subjective the rule becomes.  
    • Techniques are usually subjective and personal. Some sheer voodoo.  I find that I tend to spend too much time frozen over a putt and it usually just misses on one side or the other and rolls about two feet past the hole.  Lately I've been experimenting with a method that seems to relieve tension. Standing over a putt, I might make two practice swings,  line up the putt. Then I turn my head towards the target,ascribing an imaginary line i wish to take with my nose. I then retrace that line back to the ball and when my nose is directly over the ball, I take the putter back and make the stroke. No time to think about it, no hesitation, just follow the line, make nasal contact (figuratively) and execute. My nose does not extend back beyond the ball however.  I know, sounds ridiculous, but seems to work.  I seem to recall reading something similar years back where the player looked twice to the target, and executed immediately during the second "look" as a trigger move.
    • As much as I can, I'm Freelance so I've been working events all this month but I did get 18 holes in 2 weeks ago in Chicago and a few hours on the 13th when I was home for 36 hrs. When not working the busy meeting season, I average 6-8 hours a day on the range or on a course.   I will be back at lewisville 18 on the 29th once I land back in Dallas.
