  1. I would second the notion that it is better to go and try some different sets out before making a decision. When I was looking to upgrade my irons I had a few sets in mind but ended up going with an Adams RPM3 set that was almost $100 under my anticipated budget. Really was between them and a Wilson Staff set I like, but the moral is that they were two brands that weren't even on my radar when I started shopping. You could find something that feels great for a very good price.
  2. So after much deliberation I went with the Nike Vapor Speed. Solid club and I like that it is fully adjustable. Only $199 at Dicks on top of it, so in my budget. Now the decision if I want to keep my 21 degree driving iron in the bag or replace it with a lob wedge. lol
  3. Not really up on buying used. I would rather spend a little more and have the piece of mind that someone wasn't chucking it down the fairway. Anyway going to try a few more tomorrow and make a decision. Hopefully I will be swinging something new at the range tomorrow afternoon.
  4. Thanks for the response. I'm thinking Aeroburner with a stiff flex should suit me well. I like Taylormade products, and it is in my price range. I will admit when the guy at the club told me he doesn't recommend x-flex to many people, it shot my confidence up. :) Small victories with this game. lol
  5. I have been playing exclusively with the Titleist NXT Tour. I love them off the tee since they seem to just fly when I make good contact. They are a higher compression ball, but still feel soft off my irons. I may upgrade to the ProV1x once I can cut down on lost balls and get a little better around the greens, but for now I can't justify the price and prefer to play new balls. I am thinking about experimenting with the B330 a little this year. I know people who play them and love them. I also am a fan of Srixon and may try out some Z-stars. I have played Taylormade and Calloway as
  6. Yesterday before my round I was on the range and being a dumbass I set up too far back and on my back swing, and hit the club stand putting a massive crack in my Taylormade Burner driver. Luckily they were demoing the new Nike Vapor, and was able to use one for the round. While getting fitted I was surprised to find out that I had a club head speed of upwards of 110 mph and was told I should use an x-flex shaft. This kinda surprised me but also was nice knowing some of the limited work I have been doing with my swing has been paying off. Anyway I played the round with the club and really
  7. I never understood the appeal of fancy tees. I mean really it is not that hard to figure out what height is good for you with a plain white tee. Add to the fact that you can get a bag that lasts two years for three bucks.
  8. I am much more disappointed with the well struck shots that end up like crap. This game is hard enough without complaining about good results no matter how you got them.
  9. Well distance balls aren't slippery through the air. Distance balls are usually lower compression balls that give a little boost in yardage to people with a lower swing speed. Also distance balls are usually designed with very low side spin which in theory is supposed to slice or hook less when mishit.
  10. If I am walking I am using my push cart. I don't care if people say anything about it. The convenience trumps everything IMO.
  11. I have managed to slice a low spin ball just as bad as a tour ball so to me the difference is not very noticeable. If you slice a prov1 violently you just need to learn how not to slice it violently. It would be interesting to see how many more yards a tour ball slices right compared to low side spin ball.
  12. I did the exact same thing. I pulled my 3 wood on the tee for almost a whole season because I knew I could hit it accurately and about the same distance. After awhile though I hit with my driver exclusively because I felt I needed to be able to learn to utilize the club. I am glad I did because the last couple of rounds and range sessions something has clicked for me with the driver. I am hitting it better than I ever have and with better consistency as well. It's nice to be able to have the extra distance yet still have that confidence in the 3 wood for tight fairways where you need a nic
  13. If you don't mind used balls. http://www.lostgolfballs.com/titleist-nxt-tour-2012-golf-balls-p/ti-nxttour12.htm A lot of people swear by their quality. I just ordered a dozen Callaway Hex Chrome and a dozen Nike 20XI-S AAAAA for $42.
