    Verdict in Cleveland/Srixon V-Sole

    Been reading and researching in sole design of Irons. It started with wedge sole design. My limited research shows that Vsole is for digger or soft fairways. I live in LA and I usually play local muni where fairway is usually hard/bare. I’m mostly a picker. I rarely take divots unless it’s a...

    What club (Yardage) that would get you over the “hump”

    I’ve been analyzing my game today and there is a certain club (me 5i) which is about 170 yds. There are times multiple times I encounter that distance and I have no confidence that I could hit that shot. I tried to use choke 4H to hit the shot but I rarely hit it correctly. 5H didn’t do any...

    Soft stepping parallel irons

    I like to clarify soft stepping parallel irons. This question is for irons already been built and pulling the shaft out. For taper shaft pull 5i shaft and use it on 6i and it makes 1/3 softer. Simple enough. What about the parallel shaft? Since parallel shaft flex is adjusted by length of...

    What’s your preference thumb setting.

    Been experimenting with grips recently. I was monitoring multiple pga player on grip style. I notice some have their left thumb(right handed player) straight down the shaft. “Long thumb” they call it. I usually have my thumb short. I saw Jordan Speith has his thumb all the way down. I tried...

    This should be in pondering thread but I’m sure it I’m not the only one. 1. Apex Pro 16. Love the feel but I will regret it cause distance I will be getting. 2. Titleist 716CB. Alway love the way they look. For me they are perfect looking iron. Will regret cause I just do not get along with...
