  1. So, Im narrowing it down to what I actually need and would use.

    Im thinking about getting either a 3 Wood or 2 Hybrid first, and then getting a 4i (and possibly replacing my 22 hybrid to 18).

    I cant decide between the Mizuno ST180 and the Titleist 917 F2 for the 3 wood, compared to a 2H Cobra F8/9, what would you pick?

    And when it comes to the 4i, should I match it with my current irons (JPX 900 Hot Metals) or go for something designed for more length such as the Mizuno MMC Fli-High (4i) or maby a titelest T-MB or a TM GAPR Mid?? 

    Thank you! :)

    Why don't you list what your distances are for the various clubs and anything that may be important such as I hook my hybrid or love hitting my driver off the deck; strengths and weaknesses in your game, etc.

    Driver 260y

    4H 210y

    5i 180y

    I hit Driver off most par 5s, some par 4s (where im looking to find a Club such as a 3 Wood for those narrower fairways, instead of hitting 4H or 5i). I can play my 4H any where, Tight fairways, off the deck, in The rough, really like the Club.

    A well struck shot has a straight, not to high flight. 

    I want a Club for narrow par 5/4s off the tee and for some longer par 5s off the deck (3-5 Wood or a 2H). Not super confident with my driver yet. 

    Some par 3s are hard to hit with a 5i, so sometimes I would like something between my 5i and 4h. 

    But if im just buying one Club for now im looking for something off the tee, and longer par 5s off the deck and something of the tee on tighter par 4s. 

    I really like hybrids but I kind of want a matchning 3 Wood, but im not super confident with the lenght and look of a Wood. 

  3. Hello

    Made some changes to my bag recently and now I need suggestions on what to get. 

    Current WITB

    Driver: Mizuno ST180 10.5°, Tensei CK Orange S flex

    4 Hybrid: Cobra King F8 22°, Tensei CK Blue S Flex

    5-PW: Mizuno JPX 900, Modus 3 105 S Flex

    52,56,60: Taylormade High Toe, KBS HI-Rev 2.0

     

    I need (or can) have 2 more clubs, I belive both of them should go between the driver and 4H, or possibly one between 4H and 5i. 

    Im really struggeling on deciding what to go with, 3 Wood + 2 Hyb? 4 Wood + 4i? 2H + 3H? 

    Im thinking about getting a matching ST180 3 Wood and possibly another F8 Hybrid (2H?). 

    Distance gapping between 4H and 5i is about 25-30y. Driver to 4H about 60y. 

    What would you get and why? What do you play? Can you hit a 4i and 3 Wood well?

    What would be the first Club you buy in my position? 

    Thank you!

    Try a driving hybrid or a different fairway wood.  I highly recommend the Adams Tight Lies 2 Titanium three wood; I play the 13* and love it.  I also like the Nike Vapor speed hybrids; I play the 5h and eBay has some 2h's.

    I will take a look at it, its just that clubs are really limited here and the prices are quite High. So if I can't return my 2i I Will have to play with it.

    wtf, none that makes any sense, especially in light of your original post.

    I play golf for the fun of it, sometimes I attack the ball with every muscle I have in my body, and other shots I swing with one hand. I find the 2i really special and unique, and if I can master the club my love for golf will expand even further. 

    I want to have that one club that I can send 235/240y straight down the fairway and just enjoy the purness of the shot. 

    🙂

    Maby a bit weirdly formulated, but as I said in my og post I want to be able to hit a pure shot, just like I do with my irons. A sub for my 4 Wood that I really hate. Im playing down to 4i then a 24° Hybrid that I use Out of the rough and on some fairways, but I want to hit a solid 2i of the tee.

    There's nothing consistent about 235-65; that's 30 yards--doesn't sound consistent to me. 

    Perhaps you're high speed player, but I don't see many people hitting a 2i like that out of the fairway, much less the rough.  Further, your 2i shouldn't go as far as your 3w, sounds like poor gapping to me.

    It's not a big deal as far as "learning how to use it"--it's a club like any other iron.  The problem is the fact that most don't have the speed or strike to make much use of it.  Most people, even pros, are better off with a fairway wood or hybrid because you'll get better ball speed and more reliability.  

    I own a 2i myself, but it's really only good for low knuckleballs under the wind or the trees because I don't have the speed to use it.  I strike it well, but I don't generate enough speed.  Cool club though.

    As a 17 handicap, you simply don’t have the swing speed nor the skill level to play it.  Sorry, but my recommendation is to give it to a hated golf buddy and find a nice, forgiving, modern hybrid to put in the bag.

    I am determined to master this club, just for the fun of it. My overall distance in my bag is no problem currently, and therefore I want to play the 2i, just for some tight par4/5s. I can't putt, and that's why I'm 17hcp.

    I hit my 4 iron at 120 mph speed, with a 2i I could probably push it to 130. I believe the contact during impact is the problem, might just have to grind on the d-range?

     

     

  8. Hello!

     

    I recently pricked up a Mizuno MP18 MMC Fli-Hi 2 Iron for fairway bombs.

    I've never been comitted to woods as I don't appriciate the looks behind the ball.

    My Mizuno JPX 900s provide me with deadstraight aimlock, which made me buy the 2 Iron.

     

    I dont know if it's the excitement of belief to hit hard stingers flying through the air, or the smaller club head compared to my Hot Metals, but something's making the ball dive right into the ground after 50y of thinned ball flight.

     

    If you have any ideas or suggestions on what you or I do/should be doing, please let me know!

    Thank you!
