Favorite Irons/ Cleveland TA6 for me. What's yours?

6 posts in this topic

I've tried pings, Callaways (hawkeye), yonex, Titlest 962's. My fav. came on a lark buy on craigs list for $125 for the ta 6's. They are purest I've used. just recently thought I'd upgrade these and bought a set of Cleveland CG7's thinking that newer tech might be better. Gave them 2 weeks and sold em. I'm sticking with TA 6's. What's yours? and why?

Personally I'm absolutely in love with my current irons (Mizuno Mp-64). They are buttery soft if you hit the sweet spot. I LOVE to work the ball and I can do that with them all I want. They spin well and I can bring the ball back through an 8 iron and I can get the 4 iron to one hop and stop but it is wet. I can hold greens through the 4 iron on the simulators. If you want any more info feel free to PM me!

I played Taylormade Tour Prefered blades in the 1990's that I have fond memories of. I also have a set of sweet 690 MB's that I keep around for fun. I've run through Callaway X12, Cleveland TA 5, Ping I-3, TM R7 TP, Ping Zing Berrylium (but not in that order) along with the current Mizzy JPX 800's, but my favorites are the first two.

That being said, I'm picking up my new MP-54's in about an hour, so it may change

I loved my Mizuno MP-14's but just upgrade to the MP-4's which for the few times I've played them have felt really good. Find out more once this damn cold weather gos away. :-)

Of all the different sets I have owned, I can't see me getting rid of my 695MBs any time soon.  It probably has more to do with the shafts, but I have no hesitations towards using any club out of that set whereas with other sets, I always had an iron or two I would try to avoid using.  That reminds me, it's almost time to polish them up for the upcomming season!

    • Played yesterday at SGCC. 36-40-76 -2 birdies and 2 doubles (ugh), one double was a 3-putt
    • I am going to try the TP version of my old club.  It has a 390CC head.  It was only 30 bucks so I figured it couldn't hurt to see if it helps a little on the forgiveness.  I guess the game is just passing me by...I can't see myself using those gigantic drivers.  The thing I noticed is that with the smaller head, that I am more focused on hitting the sweet spot.  With the giant club it just seems like you hit it anywhere on the face.  Am I correct in thinking that a "sweet spot" is not any larger on the bigger heads?  Is it just that on off center hits there is better chance of hitting it straight?  
    • I'll keep this on the short side because some random person's Member Swing thread isn't really the place for this kind of discussion… By most I'll clarify: the vast, vast majority. I'm not talking about 53% here. That doesn't mean you were doing it right or most efficiently. You may very well have been capable of making the change - and making it more quickly - with a ball if you'd done it differently. Sounds slow. Not for everyone, but for a good chunk of people. That's not what I advocate in the above linked post, either. Generally speaking, here's what I see: You tell people to fix the move without a golf ball. They work and work and film and record, and eventually, they've got a great practice swing. You say "great, now do that with a ball" and they almost immediately and completely revert to their old swing. Simply put, what I recommend to people is: A rehearsal swing or two. Often these too are shorter, slower, simpler swings. A shorter, slower, simpler swing focusing just on the "piece" while hitting a ball. As you become proficient, the swing gets less short, less slow, and closer to the full swing. Practice at the edge of your ability, but do it with a ball. The approach there blends no-ball practice (the first bullet) but immediately ties it to a motion you make with a golf ball. If you're shanking, topping, etc. the ball too much, you're not doing it slowly, "shortly," or simply enough.
    • Shot a 41 in my match play League.  Opponent was giving me 3 strokes.  I won the match 5 to 4. 5 pars 3 bogeys 1 double Good:  Drove 6/7 fairways and the only one that I missed was by about a foot.  Hit some very good approach shots.  I had 4 birdie putts ranging from 6-25 feet.  Alas, i made none. Bad: Other than duffing 2 shots on the first hole (an easy par 5) i played pretty solid.    
    • This entirely depends on where you play. I play courses that usually have three groups and a couple of singles out per side, and I would say no, but then I get to an urban course, like Long. Island, or South Florida, and it's anger management time.  I like to watch my friends's shots, and compliment their successes, I take a couple practice swings if I am in an uneven lie, or whatever, but I am not going to spend time searching for extra balls while walking between shots, or sit and BS at the tee before shooting. For some reason I am always ready to hit first, honors or no, and I just don't get why people take so long there. As long as I can do the things I enjoy, like watching my shots and my friends shots, and take due care taking my shots and putting, I don't feel rushed, but three hours for a foursome means you have four serious golfers. My golfing is more social so that is unlikely to happen. I play with one guy who takes pace seriously, and we do fine.  If we want to pick up the pace of a group, we play best ball. Maybe the conversations on the tee are because that's where everybody gathers together for the next hole and people like to talk. I like to play golf.
