  1. Hi all. Great to be here and talking to some fellow golfers. I am looking at getting new irons for the 2018 season. For the past year ( last leg of 2016 to present ) I have been taking my golf really seriously. I have dropped from a 15 Handicap to a 6 in the last year. I want to change my irons. I am looking at Mizuno mp 18 MB , Titleist 718 MB , Taylormade P730 and Callaway Apex MB. From a little of my own research I have found Mizuno to be the best "Blade" according to people ( This is based on my own research ). Which out of these will be the better brand? Second question. What are your opinions on forged iron durability. I hit alot of balls 3 - 4 times a week. Its my own personal driving range so I hit my own "range balls". I hit of Kikuyu grass on the range. Will this cause more wear on forged clubs than normal ones ? I currently play Taylormade m2 Tour irons. The course I play has hard fairways. As I am from South Africa this is the norm for a lot of courses in my area. This will be first set of proper players irons. Reason : As I am improving I am starting to wonder if the more forgivable irons are covering weaknesses in my swing. I am pushing for scratch mid next year. Kind Regards Kudu
  2. I thought it might be nice to have wedges with shafts that match those of my irons. My old wedges have shafts slightly lighter than my irons, when heavier is typical, and they are an unpleasant color. I thought I might go through with my idea of playing 4 specialty wedges in addition to my set pitching wedge and closeting a wood. I had golf money burning a hole in my pocket. For these reasons and more I went ahead and ordered a custom set of 4 Mizuno S18 Chrome wedges in 48, 52, 56, 60. Fun! Mizuno has no upcharge on the shafts or grips I wanted so they are actually the cheapest of the newer top end wedges. And they look brilliant. I got the recoil 95 stiff shafts to match my irons set, +1/2", only 1* upright rather than the 2* of my irons to somewhat discourage pulls. Just opened them yesterday. Here's a beautiful clean new head -- soon to be a beautifully dinged and dirty head with character: Looks sweet by the ball. I'm trying the Tour Wrap 2G grips because I like the tackiness and the white. They're great with a glove -- you hardly have to close your hand for it to stick. With a sweaty bare hand they get slippery quick and I like to take my glove off inside about 60 yards, so we'll see how that goes. Unfortunately: One of these things is not like the other. I know I ordered them right. From my confirmation email: https://m.imgur.com/ZTWIJfy But from the spec sheet that came with my wedge: Was I surprised? Not really, except perhaps for the fact that I only got one right handed wedge. Literally ever time I ordered multiple clubs direct from a manufacture some of them have come right handed. (Ok, BOTH times.) Of course every company has been very good about it and rush builds and ships the correct clubs. I guess when the guy is ticking the boxes he is so used to clicking RH that he'll sometimes slip even if the previous 3 clubs from the same order were all LH.
  3. Hello, I recently was fitted for Mizuno JPX 900 irons with a true temper XP 95 S300 shaft. During the fitting, i was told that my swing speed was around 85mph. On my long/mid irons (4-8 irons). I can't seem to hold the greens as my ball just rolls off the back. I've only played two rounds. One round on greens that were recently punched. The other was on a very hot day and greens were very firm. I have played a round with a callaway chrome soft and a vice Pro which is a new ball. I have struck the ball fairly well and have placed the ball towards the front of my stance. My question is, what recourse do i have to make these irons work? Should I bite the bullet and change the shafts? This will certainly will require more money, which would not be good. I don't think Rodger Dunn would swap out. Should i add a degree if loft? Im not even sure if this would ve an option. I know i may be overreacting very early, but this is frustrating as I paid about $1000 irons that aren't doing the job.
  4. Need to find out the model name of a set of Mizuno irons. Have looked everywhere on google images and can't find a match. They're unique in the fact that they have the "Mizuno" name on the sole of the iron, so if you find a club with that trait, it's most likely the one. Thanks.
  5. Hi guys, I'm a 6-handicap (floating between 5 and 6 for a few years now) although being honest my long game is more like a 8/9-handicap. I've been using Callaway Big Bertha irons for about 10 years (big chunky heads on them) and am looking to buy some second-hand irons. I've always had an eye for Titleist irons - anyone have a recommendation? I hit a 5-iron 175, hit the ball pretty consistently so I don't think I need the heads I have at the moment. Would appreciate any advice! Thanks
  6. So I wanted to get people's opinion on bladed irons. Is there a point anymore to use blades? Or does today's technology make them obsolete? I know blades are hard to hit and if you don't pure them every time it's going to hurt you. But say for someone who does hit the ball on the center of the face 99% of the time, are they really that much better? I forget what irons he was using but I know a while back Luke Donald wasn't even using Mizunos MP-4s, he was using the set a step down. For someone his caliber you would think he could hit the ball with a dime welded to a shaft. But oh boy are they such a beautiful sight behind a golf ball!
  7. My Swing (Snipehook16)

    I've been Playing Golf for: 10 years My current handicap index or average score is: 8.4 My typical ball flight is: all over the place The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: pull hook So I first picked off this video that I stand way too far from the ball/line it up on the toe. I started working on that while I was at the range today. Anything else feel free to rip my swing apart. Thanks guys! Videos: How to I upload a video properly from my iPhone?
  8. Mizuno JPX-900

    Mizuno JPX-900 teaser is up on their Facebook page: https://facebook.com/mizunogolf/ Only glimpses of the irons, but they look to be one of the most aesthetically pleasing game-improvement irons out there.
  9. Help me chose between these 2 iron sets. I have a choice between Mizuno T-Zoid Comp-EZ, and Titleist 755. Both are 3-PW and both are right at $100.00. I am a mid handicapper and am upgrading from some adams game improvement irons. Both of these seem like a good deal, and I am split between the 2.
  10. Hi, (Skip to final paragraph for main topic.) So I'm new to golf, but not completely. I do have some experience at the range and used to play about 4 times a year whilst in high school, I don't have an official handicap either. Since the end of last year I have been very interested in golf and enjoy the sport way more than I used to in the past. Going to the range and hitting a few balls feels relaxing and enjoyable thus I want to get more into the sport. Now, gear...I went for a club fitting (irons) at my local golf shop (Cape Town) where we tested a few brands, shafts ect. He fitted me with a club and changed the shaft and there we were, something that I could hit easily and felt great/consistent. The club was a Mizuno JPX 850 with a Dynamic Gold X100 shaft, it felt very good. Avg. stats with the club: 6 iron, club head speed 100mph, ball speed 133mph back spin ~5000rpm. So these Mizunos felt great and the club fitter advised me that I have a good swing and should get a set of clubs that would suit a wide variety of handicaps as I might improve quick. I would like some suggestions of cheaper alternative clubs to the Mizuno JPX 850 irons which cost R10 000.00, I'm on a budget of R6 000.00 so something 60% of their value but with the same feel would be perfect! Thank you in advance :) Moderator, please delete my double post, the lag was strong
