5 posts in this topic

Hey! I have been playing golf for about 2 years. I have been using some old versions of theyou Wilson reflex clubs that my dad had. I recently wanted to upgrade, and BC I really liked the clubs, I looked into the newer version of the clubs which are the Wilson reflex irons 4-GW . They are really cheap and look good, but I heard they are beginners clubs. I usually shoot about a 45-52 and I wanted to know what you thought.thank you.

Wilson Reflex irons appear on the Dick's Sporting Goods site, but not on the Wilson site. Golf blog chatter say the Reflexes - with a slot groove in the clubhead - are a re-do of a Wilson model from several years ago. In current times, Reflexes are aimed at the $200 price point.

Here's similar reissued or legacy irons offered by competitors at the sub-$400 price point. All have 4i-PW club mix:

  • Callaway XHot N14 irons (a reissue of the XHot models, but with Uniflex shafts; priced at $399)
  • Nike VR_S.X irons (reissue of VR_S, with Uniflex shaft) priced at $299).
  • TaylorMade 2.0 Burner steel-shafted irons - Regular or Stiff - priced at $299. The Burners live on!

Legacy irons. .. Companies often take mainline iron designs from a prior product cycle or two, and reissue them for the beginner / casual golfer market. R&D; for the original models has been recaptured, and reissuing them - usually all with a Uniflex* shaft - allows the manufacturer to drop the price.

--------------------

* Uniflex = midweight steel shaft with flex between Regular and Stiff. It's an OK shaft for quite a few golfers, but not the ideal shaft for very many. Shafting all sets with Uniflex = big economies of scale in mfg --> lower price.

--------------------

These legacy irons are good quality and quite durable, it's just a case of you take what you get with little or no chance for pre-sale customization.

If you test them out and you hit them OK, they may work. Definitely try before you buy. The shaft is half the club, and you don't get much choice in legacy irons.

Note: Edit added background info on Reflex irons.

You could probably do better than the Reflex irons. If cost is the issue, check out the Callawaypreowned and global golf websites.

After seeing the Reflex irons on the GG site, they are not bad looking. And on sale for $150.

    • Yep! I have both a FJ jacket and pants in rainwear that I bought years ago. I don't use them very often so they've lasted a long time. But, they're heavy and hot! They were made before GoreTex and other waterproof, breathable fabrics. My advice? Get the absolute best you can afford! They will last you a long time, they will keep you comfortable, they will be light, and they won't impede your swing very much.
    • Thanks for all the responses. I think this boils down to the context of the situation. I had two of the foursome busting chops about hitting out of order on previous holes. Then the first time it was mildly inconvenient for them to wait, the holed out just as i hit the green. Mind you.  This wasnt an "adventure" hole.. I hit the green on stroke 5 because of a flub shot that went about 10 ft. And an errant approach that left me about 10 yards short of the green. In any other case I agree that its perfectly fine to hit when ready, but not if you complain about hitting out of order. I guess to paint the picture, one whipped a club on the 3rd hole due to sculling a shout out of the bunker.. on another hole had one of them walking towards green right in front of my approach.. he nicely moved about 3 yards to the right as i asked him to move. As karma would have it, i hit the shot straight at him and nearly hit him.. these were friends of mine.. so a lesson learned to play golf with different friends..
    • Picked one up and checked it out in a store the other day. First thing I noticed about it was how heavy it was. Reminded me of when I went out for the HS golf team, and the coach had a Driver with a solid steel head on it. He advised us that we were NOT to hit drives with it! It was for warm up only. Being as heavy as it is, I think the main benefit to it might be that it slows your transition from backswing to downswing. There's a whole lot of guys who could use that!
    • OK, this kind of clears things up for me. I thought you might have been trying to take close ups of clubheads impacting golf balls. In that case you'd need something numbering in the several thousands of fps! If all you need is to look at swings I'd say anything the budget allows should suffice. Consider the 960fps system mentioned. If a golf swing takes about I second, at a playback rate of 30fps, that gives you a swing video of 32 seconds in length. Plenty long enough to see the golfer's bodily motions. Considering how small the clubhead will appear when videoing the entire golfer, I don't know that fps is the main consideration. It could be pixel count and the quality of the lenses. This reminds me of my "audiophile" days when cassette tapes were all the rage. I had a BIC deck that could record at 7 1/2 ips (inches per second), and an Audiovox car player that could play back at that speed. The sound quality was amazing! You were putting the same amount of info into twice as much space! There was so much more room!
    • Wondered how and where achievements came from. I've broken par,  ( handicap is +3) 2 eagles on par 5's so far this year Hole in one 2 years ago on vacation in Arizona at Karsten ASU course.  My first one.
