That really seems to be a rational approach to this. We aren’t going back to the old school names; (I don’t think…) ? And iron numbers have been rendered meaningless.
So you approach creating a club set by saying,” well, I need a driver, a fairway club around 18 degrees, and a …..”
I think this says it pretty well!
Having switched to blade irons this year I fully agree. It was surprising to me how forgiving they actually are on mishits. They seem more consistent overall to me with decent contact somewhere on the face. Maybe the big sole on GI irons help a bit more with a fat shot, idk. The feedback with blades is great, I love that.
And that’s it isn’t it? If you don’t hit a club well, and you’ve given it a thorough trial, why fight the obvious? Try something else! Or ask, “do I really need this club?” And as a case in point, it seems you’ve found an older driver that you really like and hit well. I really don’t believe we play this game for the purpose of keeping the club manufacturers in business.
Bought a Pure Plane Pro. Actually two. I forgot I got it the first time and it didn't arrive so got another and they both eventually came which actually works out because it turns out I'd want two.
Got tired of carrying the DIY PVC that holds the sticks around (as you can see in the photo below, the PVC takes up a lot more space), thanks for the tips Erik, they served me well, and like the portability of the PPP. Usually this kind of aid is a lot more expensive because it's made of solid metal I guess and the PPP is made of plastic except the screws(?). Not sure of the longevity, will have to see, but I like the product overall. It's small, easy to setup, pretty adjustable and I've yet to use it in more creative ways. If you have a nub in your alignment stick, you'll have to take it off to fit the notch (see third photo, bottom notch nub is sticking out). I've learned to put it back upright after hitting the stick without kneeling over, lol. Now that I don't have to carry PVC around, it's a lot less likely someone will yell out to me, its-a me-a, Mario!
This is a rapid hit first impression, I'll post more as I gain more experience with it.
