New irons

4 posts in this topic

Its been a while since i last posted but i am going to be a more active poster this season. Im on the market for a new iron set i have between 400 to 600 dollars to spend. Ive been playin maltby for the past 2-3 yrs they are beat up. My swing speed is about 110 - 115 with driver about 85-90 with irons (i dunno if this helps). I was set on getting callaway razr x ( stiff shafts ) but im having a hard time finding last yrs model . The pro at dicks is trying to talk to me about taylor made burner 2.0 stiff. Im new to the new technology of golf im not sure which brand or brands are good . Any suggestions on current selection or other selection of golf irons . Thanks for the help

Irons generally last longer than 2-3 years.  So I am not certain why your maltby clubs are beat up.  That being said.  With the budget you have, I suggest looking at Ping's last years model (G20) most decent golf shops will give you a free fitting and the Pings will be fitted to you.  In addition Ping tends to have a better resale value.

Generally speaking every manufacturer makes a quality set of clubs that will last year a good long time.  If you are set on having an off the rack set and want to get last years model, consider online at places like TGW, rock bottom golf, and ebay.  All are generally easy places to find a solid deal for what you are looking for.

Best of luck in your search

Pings are damn near friggin indestructable on top of the previously mentioned reasons with the exception of maybe the Ansers. They are awesome at customer service as well.

I have a set of G2 irons that I bought brand new when they were released (2004 I believe?). I play about 50 rounds a year, and they still look like new.

    • Some background information before you vote... I run a weekly game on Saturdays and Sundays with anywhere from 8-12 guys. Handicaps in my group range anywhere from 1 to 16. Expected pace of play at my course is right at 4 hours. Anything more and its frowned upon. We do not get the earliest tee times of 8am, because the course does me a favor by allowing me to have standing tee times without having to call every week. We have 9:00-9:10-9:20 every weekend.  This morning we had 7 guys, so I sent off a 3some (me included) and the last 4 guys to follow. On the 3rd hole I noticed that there was a 2some in front of us on 4 tee, and one of the guys took 5 practice swings just to top his driver maybe 4 feet. It was still on the tee box. He reteed and pulled one about 60 yards left. No biggie, golf is hard no matter how good or bad you are.  The 2some was not very good, so they were having a hard time keeping  up with the 4some in front of them. I texted the assistant pro (close buddy) in the pro shop and he came out and asked the 2some to try and keep pace or let our 3some through. We waited on every shot on 4-5-6 and finally on 7 green we hurried to the 8th tee only for them to look back at us then drive off. The issue was they were waiting for the 4some to get on the green before they would tee off, and then come nowhere close to hitting it 200 yards. On the 9th tee I finally said, "hey guys, do you mind if we play through? We will get through that 4some no problem and you wont see us again" They said sorry, but the 4some is not allowing them to play faster and that they couldnt let us through. At that point I said, you're a 2some, and 2 hours for 9 holes is not on pace. You need to push the guys in front of you so they know to let people through.  At the turn the assistant pro let us through, and we played through the 4some on 11 without them missing a beat. Ended up playing in 2 hours and 55 mins, even with the hold up (all three of us shot sub 80 rounds). After the round I thank the assistant pro for allowing us to play through, and mentioned that 2 hours for a 2some was not on pace. He told me that they complained that I was pressuring them to push the group in front of them, and that he was a tennis member who they would like to join as a golf member. The assistant pro said he has been giving one of them lessons, and that 2 hours probably should be their pace. I replied with " I have no problem with anyone shooting 120 on a Sunday morning, golf is golf, but when there is a faster group behind its golf courtesy to let them through"  I dont really care what they think, and honestly if they can get around in less than 4 hours Id be glad to have them play in my weekly game. Was I wrong for pushing a group of not very good golfers?  
    • Fired up the smoker and plan to watch in about 35 minutes.  Can't wait to see this match go down.  My money is on Rory, but we shall see.........   @natureboy - How about that 133 YARD ;) wedge shot yesterday into the elevated green with the pin placement in the front.  Mortals wouldn't have a chance at that pin....
    • Not a smart bet IMO.  Just for the fact that Spieth plays so well at the Masters.  I would take that bet on all the major excluding the Masters.  No one in their right mind would bet against Spieth at the masters, 2nd, 1st and 2nd place finishes in his last 3 attempts.  Just saying.....  I believe he will win another Major, @ the Masters.  
    • Yes, some ranges with limited space use "restricted flight" balls that don't fly nearly as far as regular golf balls (60% sounds about right).
