Did you compare the numbers between the G400 irons and your Eye 2s? That should already give you a pretty good idea what upgrading will do for you.

After yesterdays round of 80, my best this year, I see absolutely no need to change irons.  I hit the G400 5 and 7 and think they were carrying a little further than mine, but not $1000 worth.  I'm thinking the grips on those may have made them feel so different/nice.  I had my PE2's re-gripped with the Ping cord style which have little give.

All I can say to anyone reading this thread is do not do what I did and be an old school holdout.  Ever since buying the new driver, I have dropped my scoring into the mid 80's and it is largely due to longer drives and way more forgiving mishits.  Everyone had been telling me that the new technology would offer that for years, but my stubborn Irish/German heritage simply resisted.  I only wish I had made the change years ago...wow!

Well, what did you get? Driver technology  hit another level in the last 8 years. I own the G400max from Ping and it is amazing. I did not realize it but I read it has some draw bias built in and it works perfectly for me. I just got my wake up call with irons. I've used the Callaway X14s since the year 2000.  I'm a 6 hdcp that has always used cast irons with offset. I like them. I'm 65 now and tried the Big Bertha B21 irons and I love them. Over a club longer and straight as hell with the fake RCH 65i graphite shafts. They are surprisingly awesome.  These clubs will open up my bag for another club of my choice. With the Ping driver that I hit in fairways 99% of the time, these irons will get me closer to scratch., I'm sure of it. Yea I had the GBB and won many a tournament back in the day with it. It was so much fun to hit. I had the 9 degree firm flex titanium head.

    • I'm good with this. That feels about right to me.  If the judge is a golfer he has a chance. 
    • The guy needs a new caddy. Hopefully it is not a genetic issue and he can move past it with a more calming influence on his bag.
    • Seems like he has a larger issue of possible felony indictment if aggravated assualt/battery charges were filed. His hope is that of a misdemeanor if a good lawyer can knock it down to 'had a very bad day'.   Worrying about a separate tour ban would be a secondary concern. Lifetime ban seems to be an over the top suggestion unless there were significant injuries, etc.    
    • Played 18 yesterday. I shot a 92. No birdies on the card. I played at Deer Ridge with the TST gang on Sunday. No birdies there either.  I haven't made a single birdie in my last 4 rounds. Yet, I'd swear the swing changes I've been working on are starting to improve my swing. I keep heading out there with tons of optimism only to play terribly. My handicap is on the rise, but I maintain my optimism. I have golf league tonight. It's got to come together some time.... right?
