Oh, I absolutely cannot wait to share more. Holy balls y’all.

It’s a 20 degree utility. :oops:

I’m quoting this because I went home last night and hit 148 ball speed with it.

A freaking 20 degree utility. Absurd.

This thing is a rocket launcher. And for the brand, it’s backing up the tech story, which I freaking love to see.

And you love me :ROFLMAO:

Pondering the amount of amazing irons at or coming to market. It’s absuuuuurrrrrddddd
I like hearing this. New irons are on the agenda, and I want to sample a little more widely before I pick. Sounds like it will be a fun exploration.

I love a good tech story. Even more so when it proves to be true

Dangerous or fun.
Right now I am am alternating between Recoil Protos and Kinetixx and like them both a lot. They are also super different. Kinetixx has a bit more kick and feel throughout and the Recoil feels very stable.

Can you swing a little slower in an R flex so I can see what it will do for mere mortals?

As I wait for a SIM Ti 3 wd to appear on my doorstep at the end of the week.

That's a great description of Recoil 95 - very stable.

Would you say one is better for a smoother tempo and the other more aggressive? The Kinetixx is the more intriguing option having hit/played around with Recoils in the past (not protos)

Hit a used Taylormade Gapr Low at the local golf store and it is a hard ponder. Only thing i am curious about is the distance I get once on the course

I know it's only 1 round, but I'm wondering if I should tinker around with a set of irons that are also .5" long. The contact position was just so much better.

They seem to have good reviews from what I could see around the web. I didn't see anything on here I could find specifically for the fairways. That price is hard to beat.

Used to build custom clubs way back to persimmon head days and thinking of build a spare set of longer shaft irons with these heads and pondering shafts. https://www.golfworks.com/maltby-ts-2-forged-iron-heads/p/ma0294/
They actually have in steel assembled for $400 but I due to injuries and age bag graphite and enjoy assembling them as can do length and grips exactly as I want.

I was pondering a Clicgear 4, but by the time I got it set up in the cart with a couple accessories and tried to check out the coupon for a % off had expired. Thank god.

Spider X is in hard ponder mode. Now it's more just deciding which color...
