    shank proof wedge

    Seems that many responses are the same, it’s ugly, wouldn’t own one, it’s a gimmick but they all have a common thread, they have not hit this club. I have hit the 55 degree and it is a good sand wedge,. From 75 yards and in you can hit it on line and with a little practice you can adjust for the distance. It was much better than my Ping 54 degree and/or my Calloway 60 degree..

    when to move to senior flex shafts

    I play Oncore Avant or Wilson 50.
  3. The Oncore balls I play with are ELIXR. THEY HIT LIKE A taylormade Tour but lack the putting feel of a low compression ball.

    Driver with 3-wood shaft experiment

    About 4 months ago I replaced my Ping G LST driver 46” and my Beloved Sonartec 3 wood with a GX-7 which is 43” in length. My driver length is about the same but hitting more fairways with GX-7.

    Recommendations for Clubs

    I turned 70 recently and just replaced my irons. I have been playing golf for 58 years and have used every shaft and almost every name brand irons made. This time I decided to have clones custom made for my swing speed, using grips that I liked, club length to suit my height and a lie 1 degree flat. Custom clone irons will cost about $40 each,and you can buy only what you want for irons. On Woods and hybrids go to a demo day or a golf store and hit until you find something that works Whether you end up with hybrids or fairway wood will depend on your swing and which ones you are most comfortable with.

    when to move to senior flex shafts

    I turned 70 recently and just replaced my irons using senior flex graphite shafts. I have been playing golf for 58 years and have used every shaft and almost every name brand irons made. This time I decided to have clones custom made for my swing speed, grips that I liked, club length to suit my height and a lie 1 degree flat. I replaced my 4 and 5 irons with a 27 degree hybrid and my custom clone irons are 6-9 plus P and G. With the senior shafts I hit the ball more consistently and gained some yardage. Custom clone irons will cost about $40 each,and you can buy only what you want for irons.

    GX-7: A Reputable Outfit?

    As a club, the GX7 is the real deal. Just replaced my Ping G LST Driver and my Sonartec SS 3.5 3 wood with this club. My handicap is 9.4 and I just turned 70. On my first competitive round with the GX7, I hit 10 of 12 fairways. On the two I missed hooked one, hit the other through the Fairway. Lost no distance when compared to my Ping G. In a practice round I hit GX7 off the deck from 225 yds out and ball was on the fringe about pin high. In my competitive round, the drive on 3 par 5s was long enough to allow me to hit 5 wood to the green. In summary, the club delivers what it says and the price is $200 versus $400 to $600 for the name brand alternatives.
