  1. Which model Ping putter is your favorite? My personal favorite is the Anser 4
  2. After playing many rounds with these golf balls, I like them. The rating on the box concerning spin, is a pipe dream. The other 3 ratings however, I can agree with.
  3. Hi, I would look for 4deg. between irons. This will usually give you a 10yd difference between clubs. My choice would be to bring the 5 iron down to 26deg. and check all the other irons, 6-PW for the same consistency. Of course if your clubs are dialed in for a distance you know and like, then making a 1 degree change to the 5 iron only shouldn't make a huge difference.
  4. Great! I recently adjusted my lofts 3 degrees strong on my old set of Golfsmith Tour Model IV irons from the late 80's. The old loft angles were outdated so with this change, the irons are on a much better trajectory now.
  5. Try leaving it as is and putting on a practice green. After 10 putts try adding some sticky lead weight, and from the same distance try 10 more putts. I think you can see where I'm going with this. Whatever weight gives you the most confidence making putts is right for you.
  6. I use the old Ping Pal 2 putter with the standard Ping grip. For me, it gives me a sense of feeling the putter in my hands and more confidence in the putt.
  7. Will do, thanks for the heads up!
  8. Hello, The Golfsmith Tour Model IV was a great component head from the 80's that was designed to be a lot like the Ping Eye 2. I have renewed my love affair with them because of my improved iron shots to the green The only complaint is that these clubs were made back in the late 80's and the lofts reflect this. My iron shots are higher than I'd like, so I decided to change the lofts to a more modern, stronger spec. on the bending machine. After completion the bounce changed, but still maintained a positive degree. Here is the breakdown: 3 iron 21 deg to 20 d
  9. It's a personal decision. But like most decisions, there are consequences which usually dictates the decision. And it usually centers around money. If it were me, and I honestly felt I deserved it, I'd accept.
  10. I recently went back to my first set of irons that I built back in the late 80's. They're Golfsmith Tour Model IV (similar to the Ping Eye 2). I've been hitting much better iron shots with them but had to make a 3 deg. decrease in loft adjustment due to the fact that I normally hit a high ball, and the stock loft back then was greater than today's irons. The Golfsmith was a very good component company back in the day, so I can only say my experience with component club making has been positive, if that helps.
  11. Your distances are still pretty good, I would agree with your instructor. I think you should give it some more time. Play well!
  12. Yes, a great club that I recently went back to playing. I built them back when I started playing. My iron shots have improved with them, but I don't like the high flight of the ball. I am looking for the lower trajectory and hoping the upgrade in loft from OEM specs. will give me the results I am looking for.
  13. Well, it's time for the old Golfsmith Tour Model IV Irons to be adjusted to modern specs. These irons from the 80's are based off of the Ping Eye 2 and are great irons but the lofts are outdated compared to the new more modern specs. I have determined that all irons will need a 3 degree stronger loft and a .5 degree upright adjustment over stock specs. The bounce will change of course but my initial check indicates I will still have positive bounce after the adjustments are made.
