  1. If I were getting fit and looking at this particular model I would think that with the 7i at 26° is a degree stronger then my current 6i so that is the club I'd compare it to so basically I'd view it as a high launching replacement for my 6i.
  2. I've been known to obsess over the same thing until I got a response on here that made me think of it differently. The conclusion I've come to (with the help of the members of this forum) is that the number on the bottom of the club isn't what's important. The distance, dispersion and gap between clubs are what is important. As long as you can get around the golf course and have fun doing it doesn't matter what the bottom of the club has stamped on it.
  3. You are correct it doesn't matter what is stamped on the bottom of the club. What matters is that you can get around the golf course snd have what you need to do it. Thank you, you make a great point.
  4. Thank you I'll definitely do some google searching
  5. Where does it end? It feels like in 10 years we'll be packing driver, 7, 8, 9, 9 different wedges and a putter. It just seems ridiculous to me that the number on the bottom of the club means nothing. If a new "7" replaces my old "5" how many pitching or gap wedges am I gonna have to carry?
  6. I currently play with a 4 hybrid (tour edge platinum) but I have a hard time getting it in the air off the deck the only reason its still in the bag is because it works great off a tee and at my home course there are a couple tricky little par 4s and a par 3 I use it off the tee box. That is probably more of a practice problem more then a fitting problem. Ive come to the conclusion that when I go for a fitting (be later in the season I want to be hitting the ball in mid-season form) Im gonna take my whole bag and whatever the ° of loft the club they have me hit Ill compare the club I currently play that matches closest regardless of the number on the bottom of the club. I understand the concept of lower center of gravity making the ball launch higher. I just dont want a situation where I have a half club gap going into the wedges I currently play. If that makes scenes. But you are correct I need to figure out the top of my bag now that I have the bottom set (for now lol)
  7. Thank you for the response. My issue is I believe I need the extra help in the top of the bag not necessary in the bottom where I have a much more reliable gap from 7-lob wedge. Right now I play with 5-9 then move to specialty wedges at 46° and those wedges are my most consistent clubs. I just don't want to screw up my 150 yard and in game trying to fix my 150 yard and out game.
  8. Hello all. Im currently gaming a set of ping G irons i hit the 7 iron 140-150. Im thinking about getting a new set (not because I need them) I will get fit for whatever I get. My question is with the ping G 710s in power spec can I expect them to be a club stronger say a 7 iron the same as my current 6 iron? My thinking is with the jacking of lofts the number at the bottom of the club doesn't matter what matters is how far you hit the ball. Am I on the right track or is there more nuances that I dont understand?
  9. Cobra F9 driver. Pro tec 5 wood. Bazooka platinum 4 hybrid. 5-9 Ping G irons. 46°-58° Vokey wedges. Scotty Cameron detour putter
  10. I've switched to the proV1x and am very happy so far (until I cant find it or it goes into the water that kinda hurts but the performance I'm very happy with)
  11. Will definitely give that shot thank you
  12. I love hitting the longer irons in this set. And for that matter I like hitting the 8 and 9 the only problem I have is the gap in yardage and if I could hit the W club as good as the 46° vokey (and I mean as good as in as consistent not as long. I'd rather hit a club 10 yards shorter and consistent than the other way around.) I might try practicing with the W club and see if I can learn to hit it constantly.
  13. Lol I currently use 4 wedges also. 46°,50°,54°, and 58°. Can anyone explain to me why I hit a bladed 46° vokey wedge then a GI 45° wedge?
  14. I used the prov1x this weekend and the results were a bit better. The only problem I have is that I've seemed to develop a gap in the around 120 yard mark my 46° wedge is short and my 9 iron is long. Not sure if that is improvement in my striking or what. But I still have the W club that comes with the set of irons I'm considering putting it in the bags to try to fill that gap. What do you guys think
