New clubs year.  Received the Rbladez combo set consisting of the new Stage 2 #4 and #5 hybrids and 6 - AW irons.  First decent early spring day here in NE Ohio.  60 degrees and pure mush outside for hitting surface.  Took a bag of balls, the PW and 7-iron for a test-drive.

Interestingly, here's a comment from Golf Digest Hot List from one of the RocketBladez testers:

Middle-Handicapper:
"Shots just hang and hang in the air without you having to generate any extra boost."

It was mushy, the ground muddy and slippery.  Had to reign in swing and just try to make good contact.  My swing has shortened over the years (52 now) and my normal ball flight is a lower-trajectory right to left bender that chases onto the green.

What I think about the RocketBladez 7-iron after hitting about 100 balls with it:  "Shots just hang and hang in the air without you having to generate any extra boost."  Really.

Honestly, I've never hit shots this high that hung in the air this long and went this straight.  The 20 or so that were flushed went straight with the slightest draw.  The ones I caught on the outer half of the blade (my usual mishit) hooked a bit more, but still hung in the air a long time and went a reasonable distance compared to those hit well..  Couple of random really bad swings pushed the ball right with only a slight fade.

When conditions improve, I'll get the whole set out for an extended test-drive and expand on the review if anyone is interested.  My goal this year is to improve the middle part of my game as much as possible.  With the new Rbladez hybrid/iron set and some solid practice, breaking 80 might be in the cards this season.  Kinda runnin' outta time, if you know what I mean!

Thanks for looking.

Will do and thanks for the link.  I was looking for it.  I'll wait until I can do a full test drive of the entire set, then do a real review.

    • Updated Nevada rules, have to start wearing a mask on the range, went into effect yesterday 👎 Doing a lot of slow reps, taking it to 4 withe knees staying over the feet and then breathing into it. Legs are looking more stable, matching up well with the handle being more forward/shaft steeper on the downswing. When I can keep the femur "spread" it feels like the club works "straighter" into the ball rather than under and out to the right.   
    • Day 348 Superspeed workout and some tempo drills with 7-iron. Hit the ball really shitty, hope it was the dark. 
    • Isn’t the ‘low spin’ pertaining to the inner core as far as a smashed hit as with driver and not with a descending hit with grooves as from an iron? 
    • No. I only have 3: 48, 54, and 60. I’d rather have more clubs at the longer end of the bag. It is generally far easier to finesse a wedge than a long club. Additionally, when you finesse a wedge, it’s easier to retain spin and hold the green. Conversely, when taking something off a longer club, it’s harder to maintain spin and adequate landing angle to retain the green. Therefore, I’d rather have more opportunities at a stock number on the longer end of the bag than carry an additional wedge. 
    • Iron set wedges are 44(Pw) and 49(aw) vokeys are 54s and 60k set wedges are mainly full Shots. The 54 does everything inside 75 yards except bunkers and if I’m short sided in rough (that’s the k) I’m thinking of getting new irons next spring but wondering if I’ll have to get a 50 degree wedge (will most likely drop my 4h if 5i is long enough) with all of these new long hitting irons. Rogue x has a 46 degree gap wedge!
