  1. Thanks Club Rat, makes for interesting reading, looking forward to Friday. I’m thinking of playing the front 9 with the Wilson DX2 and the back 9 with the e12 to compare, my gut feeling is the e12 will be a winner.
  2. Hi All Just picked a dozen of the above to try out, not playing until this Friday so I was wondering if any body else had given them a good thrashing and would like to comment? As a comparison I normally game the Wilson DX2 Optic which I beginning to think maybe is a bit too low on compression for my swing speed, I tend to leave a big ball imprint on the driver head.
  3. Hi That's some seriously expensive irons you're looking at there but fair play to you, I'd do the same if I could be sure the wife wouldn't divorce me. With regards to the single length irons from my own experience it was not a smooth transition. I naively believed they would instantly improve my game but I really struggled with the low irons (4,5 & 6), lost yardage and gapping and it's only after many trips to the range that I'm now getting close to my old irons. With hindsight I probably should have gone with a new variable set but I'm stubborn so I'll continue with these The Edels are very expensive to realise that the concept may not really suit you but that's not to say they won't, I'd advise trying them first. Hope this helps.
  4. I can recommend the Dynacraft driving iron, I game the 2 iron (18 degrees) with a regular Graffalloy Blue shaft. Relatively easy to hit high and long, I can't get it passed 200 yards but that's me. I bought a used one off ebay for peanuts to try out but the jury's out on whether it'll replace my 3W though.
  5. Yeah I totally understand this, although I do carry a driver I'm not always consistent with it, I'm usually aware from the 1st tee whether it should stay in the bag or not. When I'm unsure I'll revert to my 5 wood or 3i, and that's because I have confidence in my swing with them. Unlike the Driver I don't have to run through pre-flight checks on the tee before I attempt to launch them both, I just let them fly. And yes I know it's all in my mind that I should be able to hit my driver just as well but some days it just doesn't happen, so it stays in the bag. I never feel like I given shots away because I didn't play my driver on those days. My local UK course has 3 par fives where in all honesty a long drive is not a requisite but being a tree lined parkland course keeping it on the fairway is. So if the OP is happy just to play irons and minimise the risk he gets my vote and I may add any club I hit long and straight always gives me a buzz, not just the driver. Cheers
  6. Hi I live in Leek , North Staffs, a small market town on the edge of the Staffordshire moorlands. Cheers
  7. Hi All Just a quick hello from England, returned to Golf after a twenty plus year lay off, realised there is a massive gap between what I think I should play like to what I actually play like, currently hovering around 100 with wild fluctuations upwards. Cheers
