  1. A simple WITB question for a specific demographic. I agree with most of your individual sentences, notPM. Just getting a sense of WITB for similar cappers, with no implied causality or secret agenda.
  2. Which 21 degree club (20-22deg iron or hybrid) do TST single-digit handicappers use? Iron? (3 or 4 depending on set) Hybrid? Both? (presumably for different course conditions and/or shots requiring different trajectories and/or rollout/lack thereof) Neither? (includes those few single-digit handicappers using a 7 wood, or those simply with no hybrid or low iron in the bag)
  3. You're points ncates are true of course. We all know hybrids irons and woods are different, that fittings are useful, that gaps must be filled, that performance is more important than printed numbers. The OP wasn't asking about any of that, and the video in question didn't dispute any of that. Sometimes advise can go beyond truisms, can be supplemental.
  4. Your question of reaching impracticality is actually backwards imo; it's impractical if you have a 30y gap, that's what this aims to fix. This is a good rule of thumb from a former PGA Teacher of the Year that helps you to actually be able to start somewhere with filling your gaps instead of the utterly useless "just use clubs that carry how far you want." No kidding. This is how you can go about trying to achieve that. Not guaranteed, but works for most, and certainly a practical starting point. Many hybrids are labeled with numbers instead of or in addition to lofts; a few that come to mind are Epic Flash, Rogue, Apex, Big Bertha, G410, G400, G, M6, M4... well you get the point.
  5. David - This poll is for curiosity, for conversation, for correlation. No causality implied or expected. Thanks for the responses thus far!
  6. DeadMan and NCates, looks like you have similar thinking. David - am curious as to shaft weight selection of single-digit handicappers.
  7. Thanks for the info and votes, djake. I like your bag setup, and that you tested your wedge shaft for a full season. I realize graphite vs irons can drive the weight, but the information itself is not inaccurate; inaccurate conclusions, however, may certainly be drawn. I just simply want to see what weights single-digit handicappers are playing, whatever the reasons (performance, feel, cost, injuries, it's what *whoever* told me to do, etc.).
  8. Do you also draw your sand and lob wedges on full swings? If not, do you adjust your aimpoint left (as compared to your longer wedges and irons) to compensate for straight (non-draw) ball flight?
