Buying new iron set. Help needed!

6 posts in this topic

Hi! First post on the forum (even though i read here all the time). I have just started getting back into golf. I'm 22 and just working on getting back into my groove and get my score down. Im looking to get a new iron set and i have my eye on either the Taylor made Burners 2.0 or the RBZ's.

My question is that i have never bought an iron set by myself cause the last time I got irons my dad surprised me for Christmas and i had no involvement in the buying process. I want to get either one of those two mentioned above but i really wanted to upgrade the shafts to like a KBS Tour series but i don't know if there are places where you can customize clubs or if i would have to buy the shafts separately and do it myself?

Thanks in advance!

You can get those made for you. Go get a fitting and you'll go though that process.

Never played RBZs but I own and use the burner 2.0. Very forgiving and suit my style at address. Also the ball flies on a striped shot.. plus they're cheaper

And I can vouch for the rbladez! Very forgiving and good launchers! The fitting process will enable you to choose the best shaft for you, often at no extra cost, I ended up with the stock rocketfuel 85g steels! There's nothing wrong with them! But kbs are very popular on tour and I think that's the main reason people choose them! I would suggest, if you haven't already, to develop a repeatable/consistent..ish swing before splashing out on new fitted clubs though!

Go and get a fitting because you may find that you can't hit x brand club to save yourself but y brand club works for you great. The other thing to keep in mind is that you can make big savings by buying one version back (instead of the current model) for losing next to nothing in performance. Of course the draw back is that you won't benefit from changes in shaft etc but if the club works for you as with then that's a bonus. I had fittings for nike, cobra, Ping, Mizuno and ended up with Titliest AP1 712 clubs with standard shaft and bent 2 degrees upright. Performance wise the clubs were all close to each other, some I hit great others I couldn't get on to. Tried different shafts and lies etc but in the end went with the AP1's. Regards Mailman

KBS Tour 90 shafts weigh from 95 to 102 grams (depending on flex and parallel vs. taper tips). These are lively shafts, and are lighter than most KBS offerings. You would pay an upcharge, but they would have more substance than the 85 gr. offerings if you find the 85s too light, or you can't feel them at the top.

    • He said, doesn't experience with the driver (bulge ref.) Just mid/long irons.   I think, I would look at the divot on these to see if they are more out to in, longer and deeper than normal past the ball. An extra 'compressed' in to out impact with closed to club path face can do all that you have described.
    • Simple answer: the polls are always volatile in the period between the conventions. McCain jumped ahead in the polls at this time in 2008, but it evaporated once the data caught up to what happened at the Democratic convention. No need for the left to panic, no need for the right to get cocky.
    • I feel for you.  Here in northeastern Colorado, all of our water comes from wells, 200 feet and deeper.  And even drilling a well is a hit or miss proposition, and a really good well will only pump about 10 gallons a minute - most farmers are tickled when they get 6, the average is less than that.  Crops are not irrigated, farmers grow dryland wheat, corn and millet, with a few fields of commercial sunflowers. We average 1.25" of precipitation per month all year. Most of that comes in May-July, but even then it's less than 2.5" each month (with 4 days left in July, I've only emptied about 1.8" of water from our rain gauge this month, and I doubt that we will hit our 2.3" average for July).  Also, most of our rain comes in bunches called thunderstorms - we rarely get a soaking rain like you do farther east.  Humidity is low, most days under 35% and can be below 15%, so any moisture that is in or on the ground is sucked up quickly.  We do most of our lawn and golf course watering at night so it has time to soak in before the sun comes up.   On my home course, the water hazard ponds are reservoirs for watering the course, and they can be several feet lower in the fall because of the draw down.  They are fed by an irrigation ditch from water stored in the mountains west of Denver, and water rights are divvied out by one's place on the water rights seniority list.  When supplies are low, the lower part of the list gets cut off.  One private club a few years back had only enough water for the tees and greens - the fairways dried out to the point where the cracks would swallow a ball.  There was only dead grass and weeds mowed short.  They survived that year and and spent a good bit of money to renegotiate their water rights, but it took a couple of years for the course to recover.
    • If you looked at the polls for Trump he didn't see his boost till after the RNC convention. Also, the link you posted is to a prediction not a poll. Basically they are using 3000 to guess who will win in November. This isn't a poll on who they would vote for now.   So, Twitchy dot com misinterpreted the USC website.  The guy who has a track record for being highly accurate in predictions still has Hillary's chance of winning at 60% http://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/2016-election-forecast/#plus  
    • The hack is huge deal. The apparent connection with the Russian government that stands to benefit greatly from the proposed foreign policy of a presidential candidate, whose credit line happens to run straight through Moscow, seems too substantial to dismiss. 65 percent of Americans have a negative opinion of Russia; one consequence of having an old, white voting base is that they remember the Cold War. The Dems should keep digging at this story; it may be their strongest weapon to attack Trump's credibility with working-class white voters.
