  1. Just to close on the topic of the reviews: I get demo and prototypes most of the time and I spend around 5-7 days playing them, then I give feedback back to the rep. My reviews I post here originally was to keep an archive for myself, but I thought that if I keep it simple, most people would find it easier to read, plus they can get the club features from the company direct. . And I try to not put too much personal opinion, specially because I know I love my own set and I can be pretty biased. So hope that clears it up. But I'm sure there are people here who can write them better than me. Back to my problem with long irons =) @MVMAC: Thanks for the tips, just got back form the range and I was flushing 4i and 5i (should have brought my 3i too) . The flatter take away and flatter down swing combined with more pronounced hip push helps a lot. It does feel that the flatter plane is quite subtle and not a big change... is this how it's supposed to be? @Golfingdad: Hi! Long time no talk. Well... the reason I wanted a longer shaft is because I want to be able to replace my normal 3 wood with this 4H . I got myself a Tour Spoon to fill the gap between my 3W and Driver. So I thought that 2 inches longer = longer distance and if I need to hit a normal 4H distance, I just grip down 2-3 inches. When I grip down, it works great. When I used its full length... it's top haven.
  2. 1. Sorry for the review, please tell me what extra info you are expecting of me. 2. I forgot to mention... this new hybrid that I have, I installed a premium shaft that's 2 inches longer than any 4H I own... I can hit any normal length 4H flush. hope it clears it up. Thank you, I will try that in a few minutes. It's time for me to learn good long iron game.
  3. Thanks for the video. That's definitely not my problem, since my club is always infront of my hands on take away. In fact, it may have gone up a little too steep.
  4. Driver and anything from 6i-LW I have pretty decent control, however, hitting 3i-5i as well as a 4H is troublesome for me. I can feel hitting them all thin on 3i-5i and end up with a low left to right ball. Whereas 4H I kept topping it. I have a steep swing... I was under the impression that we use 1 swing for all clubs, but I also heard that the longer the iron, the more you have to have a 1 plane swing / wrap the club around you? Thus flattening it? WHat's your thoughts on this.
  5. I'll weigh my 56 and 60 Mizunos... Well I found out that my Mizuno 56 is 455g and my Miura K grind is 485g, that's a huge difference, specially since the C and Y grinds are both the same as in 485g. I'm going to try counter weighing the K-grind and see how it swings before I order a custom C - Y - Grind. I truly like the feel of the Miura wedges... but again... it all comes down to stopping power for me.
  6. I've been playing Mizuno wedges for a long time now after switching from Clevelands. But recently to complete my Miura bag, I was going for the C-grind and Y-grind. I play a 60*5 Mizuno wedge around the green and from 90 yards in and I love it. I was expecting a lot when I was testing the Y-grind, and for me, it feels as if the Miura wedge, (like my K-grind) is heavier, doesn't feel as good as the mizuno and it doesn't have as much stopping power. As much as I want to have a full set of Miuras , I just feel that the Mizunos work better for very touchy shots and off tight lie full shots. Whereas the Miuras are better for sand shots, deep roughs, due to the weight, like my K-Grind. So more they are more of a specialty club. Can anyone with more experience with all these clubs share your thoughts?
  7. My equipments are expensive and rather hard to get than just off the shelf retail. As much as I would like to share, preventing "accidents" that will test people's integrity is priority for me. What if you allow them, then they wreck your driver, then promised to pay you back for it, but never did? You'll be out of $$ and you'll be angry as hell. I've been burned too often in other things that I learn to not trust other people. But that guy who just grabbed a person's club and start hitting without asking deserves "discipline".
  8. If I were you, I'd have snagged my club back, talk to him calmly in a very threatening way, but that's because I'm a skilled fighter and I can back it up. Whoever does that whether it's golf or anything else in life deserves a little spanking. That's not excusable. He's the rude and selfish one.
  9. I have Brand new unused Miura hats (the most recent release) . sz: S/M Color: Black with Red letters White with Black Letters Total of 2 each style. The material they use on these hats are actually better than most and it looks a lot better in person than on photo. S/H is $4 per hat or $6 for 2 hats. Send me a PM if you are interested. Cheers.
  10. Yea, looks like a fast back swing with a fast aggressive down swing works best for me. But sometimes I leave the club head a little open, so I'm going to play with ball placement a little.
  11. I used to not care how I swing back, but I know when I swing down, I kill the ball. But sometimes I hit it right or left depending if i sway or not. In quest of more control, I ended up with an almost flawless back swing, but smoother and slower yet still be very aggressive on the downswing. Problem with this is, ever since the change, I'm lacking power and my shots have gotten worse. A pro today told me to just swing back aggressive and swing down even more aggressive and the results were voila... 290yds+ carry with driver, 200yds total with 7i , but on and off I spray one to the right or duck hook to the left. He told me that due to my nature, a smooth back swing coupled with a strong down swing will not work. He said that a smooth swing has to be a smooth swing back and down , same goes with aggressive swingers. Basically he said that the shaft won't know what to do if I were to swing smoothly to the back then all of a sudden yank it on the down swing. Based on the results I AM regaining those lost yardages from last year, but the lack on control on and off also came back. But I'm hitting the ball more flush too with his advice. So is what he said correct?
  12. I was playing a great round today, shot 3 over on the front 9 then the wind picks up to about 25mph. I use a scotty blade putter and a pendulum swing because the greens here are very very fast. The wind knocked my putter back and out of line and I missed multiple putts . has this happen to you? What do the pros do in this situation?
  13. I hear you on this one and I understand. I'll try to balance it out and not get frustrated too much. Actually I never rush in before my friend to fix his, I just calmly tell him that he has been killing them green. Problem is if I fix his marks, he'd laugh and think I'm a know it all busy body. He also thinks he is a better golfer than me and knows more, which is true... He is a better golfer than me and he is 20 years older. So about his share, it's like damned if I do, damned if I don't. And about other ppl's mess, it's come to the point that I feel like as if I'm cleaning after my children's intentional mess and not letting them learn and take responsibility. But yes, I'll try to calm down and balance it out.
  14. In my book, you are the reason these morons don't take responsibility because you keep cleaning up After their own mess. I pay to play and clean up after my own stuff, not to work for someone else. And you haven't seen me be a douchebag in the highest order, I can show it to you given the chance in real life.
  15. Because its come to a point that it doesn't make a difference and I'm just not going to clean up after other ppl ever again. If you like cleaning after other ppls mess, nothing wrong with that. I'm just not going to any more. And won't play that course anymore at this rate. @Zeg, ok, if it's 1 close to mine, yea, I'll do it, but I won't go out of my way anymore for redoing a bunch. Fix 1 or 3 and in a week, there's 20 more feels like. It's useless on this course.
