i guess it depends what you’re looking for/asking. I haven’t got it on a launch monitor or gotten shot scope data yet, but I’d say it’s long (or maybe the better word would be easy) compared to my past gw. The distance is similar to my past pw, however, the flight is similar to a gw
Not @lukemartin93 , but I would say my FTX GW plays very much like a GW should. Mine is bent 1 deg weak.Thanks for the input! I guess I'll just have to wait till it gets here and figure out the gapping from there. I'm just curious what the my first wedge is gonna be after the set GW.
I’m going to agree with @mtbloco on this one @Jimbopoppins. I’ve had a few rounds with the FTx set GW now and it plays fairly similar to my previous 48° specialty wedge. I’m seeing this avg about 5yds longer on my shot scope numbers. I’m finding it to be a pretty good gap between my FTx PW and King Cobra Snake bite 54° (bent to 53°).
I am not @lukemartin93, but I have the set gw and I am not alone in the opinion that the gw does not play long and, if anything, is not long enough to gap into the pw. Some of us have experienced this phenomenon previously and my own belief is that the tec and low weight in the bottom of the club launches it too high. You could likely fix this by bending the gw and degree or two strong, Proper gapping is more important than the loft.
This is another example of why everybody needs to try a club. I just posted the opposite. We are both right for our own swings.
I would agree with you here. This GW is about 10 yards longer than expected. Don’t think it’s going to hurt at all but just trying to get adjusted still with only 18 holes under my belt with the irons.i guess it depends what you’re looking for/asking.

I had only a few bad ones with my first round or so out, and it was mostly judging distances completely wrong long and short hahaReally, really enjoyed playing these today. Had no awful shots, which is new for me. The closest was a thin that still got up and landed pin high right off the green. Only issues came from not knowing my distances, but overall, I was extremely happy
What do you think of the gap between PW and GP?Let’s talk about the Forged Tec X irons. What a revelation these irons have been.
The set that I went with was 5-GW with Recoil 110 (1° weak). I’ve been super impressed in very limited action so far. I’ve already discussed how awesome these clubs look, they are visually stunning and provide confidence at address. The feel is muted, but still provides enough feedback on misses.
I put the entire bag on a Voice Caddie SC300i, and I learned some things and some questions were answered. I realize that the SC300i isn’t a GCQuad or Trackman, so these numbers will be close but not exact.
After reading that others were seeing 170 yard 8 irons, I was worried that I would have a hard time making sure the bag gapped correctly, but when reviewing the raw data from 160+ balls, that concern was alleviated.
This is the raw carry distance data, without miss hits removed:

Even without removing strikes that were chunked, thinned, etc. the gapping wasn’t bad. I didn’t see 170 yard 8 irons, but 160 wasn’t out of the question.
One well hit shots, these irons are longer in my experience than the last two iron sets that I had in my bag (Apex DCB & XXIO X Forged).

Here is the best strike data with the 8 iron, I would say that they are a full club longer than my previous set.
They are super fun to hit, if you haven’t gone to your local store to hit this offering, you need to get on that as soon as possible. I will be providing on course feedback as soon as I’m able to get back out there. If you have questions please ask.
