So Santa has come and gone and the New Year is upon us. What are you using for your birdies this year ? I would like to see everybody's rig and know what there favorite club is in the bag. Post pics and be proud now. Im a Callaway guy myself and my 8-iron is my favorite club. I use it as my bump and run club and my 135-145 yardage. I hope to get longer with all my clubs but thats where I am at the moment comfortably , without swingin out of my shoes.

Nice clubs @Strat-Pack Rick

I've got the PING i irons in the bag (sometimes go with the iBlades) and looking forward to checking out the i200's which should be announced soon.

Eh!?

What level of player are they for? 

I rock a mixed bag. Ping woods, Titleist hybrid, Mizuno irons, Edel putter and wedges.

@saevel25 I used to have mixed bag too. I had Mizuno irons as well. I had way to stiff shafts and everything else was a little dated. So I went and got fitted all the way through the bag and it was the best thing I ever did. Im actually improving and am all up in love with golf , haha. Hit Em Good Bud !!

nice sticks

 

@Hacker James Thanks bud. Set of my dreams really. I got fed up and went and got fitted. Best move ever. Its amazing how much better you play when your clubs arent fighting against you. My old shafts were for guys like Rory and DJ . The guy at the fitting center said "I bet you hate these damn things" haha, too funny.

It will replace the i E1 irons. From what I've heard they'll look like the "i" version of the iBlades, deeper cavity, wider soles and a little bigger blade length.

Do you ever blend the two and play the I's in the long irons and the I blade short irons?  Maybe the distance gaps don't work. I've never played ping but the new irons they are coming out with are much better looking IMO.

Nice, the i-E1 were good irons.

There is a bit of a gap, i irons lofts are stronger than the iBlades.

Driver - Ping G30 LSTEC. 3W & 3H - Ping G30

4-PW - Mizuno MP25

50, 54, 58 wedges - Titleist SM5

Putter - Odyssey White Hot Rossie 

Ball - Snell MTB (and Pro-V1x, since I received several dozen for Christmas)

Have pretty much built this set over the last year or two (other than the trusty old putter), and it's working for me.  No plans to change things anytime soon.

I would think more companies start blending iron sets as an option with tweaked lofts that work. Like callaway with apex and apex pro, they offer that I think. Maybe others do as well.

Updated most of my clubs last year. Gonna stick with these for a while and focus in improving the "Indian's" technique . "Arrows" seem fine

Loving the response to this...Callaway has a mixed set of APEX PRO/APEX CF irons. Im happy with my CF 16's but I would like to hit those APEX Pro Short irons just to see.

Well Santa came and went, he must be a golfer!

Anyway I'm going to pretty much play the same clubs as last year. The only tweak might be different shafts in my irons. I have KBS Tour 105 in my irons now. But thinking of going to UST Mayima Recoil 680 F5 (X-flex) which in testing play more like the stiff shafts I have now, but it launches higher and spins a shade more the distances are similar. 

As most of you know, I think highly of Tour Edge Exotics. But I wont be shelling out $700 for an XJ1 driver...

    • So you weren’t able to listen to Death Metal for 40 hours?
    • Lie can be affected by set up, but it is really impact position that is key. The shaft is actually bending down slightly at impact. So the head is slightly flattened with respect to the shaft. If you set up too close or too far from the ball, it can vary the head position at impact. One trick I use at set up is to let my right arm hang free. If I can then move it to the club without moving it in or away from my body, then my set up is in the right spot.
    • I live in close proximity to Browns fans, so Manziel is still one of those names that stirs things up.  But absolutely. If golf can give him a direction in life, that's fantastic. Maybe he only ever competes for a club championship at the local golf club, but if it gives him a reason to get out of bed in the morning that might be more important.  I know some people with issues. One commonality is that they don't have that something to be passionate about.
    • I actually think he's an okay guy. He has his demons and his issues just like anyone else. I don't think he's inherently a "bad person" in any way. I wish him all the best in his pursuit. My guess is he'll never make a PGA tour event, but good for him to have a goal and a dream that's worth pursuing. There are a million worse things he could be trying to do.
