I still see many scratch golfers and single didget handicappers like myself playing so called game improvement irons. To me its all about feel and Ill probably never ditch my Adams 1208 irons. Just love how they feel through impact. I just like cavity back irons and see no need to break the bank on blades that vibrate unless you hit the dime sized sweet spot every time.

I don't think most of the posts here are talking about blades. Players clubs are a lot of times still cavity backs, like Mizuno MP52s, 57s, or 58s, and the Titleist AP2s.

I guess my point was there's not really any reason to bring up the blades, as we agree that cavity backs are a good blend of looks and function.  Nobody here is saying blades are better.

I'm thinking of switching from g15's to i20's or something like that. I like the smaller club face mainly. I feel like my ball striking is much improved and its time. Ill probably wait until next year but I'm going to make the change if I can afford it. If anyone has made a similar change I'd love to hear what they think.

    • I can’t believe I’ve missed this. I’m always browsing golf gear and equipment. Interesting looking for sure.
    • Day 405 Played 18 today. Added the Justin Rose movement to the rehearsals in my pre shot routine. Hit the ball pretty solidly overall today, but especially well with driver. Was starting the ball right of target on almost all my shots today, which is a mini-goal right now. A few were a little blocky without any curve back toward target, but I'll take that for now over a nasty pull-hook. Only three pull-hooks today, which is a major improvement.
    • Water?!  According to tournaments on TV they don't call it water anymore.  It's a "penalty area".  When I become dehydrated I always go for a glass of penalty area.
    • Have you seen these?
    • So, I had been thinking about one of these after watching some videos of it.  I've been struggling with contact, and it's really been messing with my mind.  When I would hit balls, I would hit a great shot, and then follow it up with a shank or skulled shot.  I started to feel like Charles Barkley in my downswing. While noodling around on Facebook Marketplace, I ran across someone selling one in a package of golf stuff for $20.00.  I got the Smart Ball, plus a small turf mat with a couple of rubber tees, as well as a third that holds an actual tee, a Ziploc bag full of assorted tees, ball markers, and divot tools (as well as a small bottle of nail polish 😕), a Smart Glove to help me with flipping, a set of alignment sticks, and a shag-bag full of balls. I used the Smart Ball (with my old Tour Striker club) and really felt a lot more connected through my swing.  It really helped me to get through the impact zone with authority, and make much crisper contact.  I will keep using this, and highly recommend it.
