  1. Chris,

    What's with the crazy slashed prices on the Itobori wedges?

      Nevermind Chris, I found your reason why in one of the threads...damn.

       

  2. Are these clubs that new that no one has had a chance to hit them? Just want some feedback is all. Thanks again.
  3. What's up TSG! Although I've been sidelined from golf due to pain and possibly military issues, I am truly trying me best to make plans to get healthy and back into golf this year. That being said, as much as I've preached, fought and cried about wanted to game blades, when I did, I had fun (didn't shoot well except for around the greens) but I hurt too. (Only went back one-time last year, but that was more than enough for me.) So now, I've had some lessons (need to finish) and I'm doing a little better with my swing or rather I better understand the swing and what I"m supposed to do. I've had a chance to demo irons where I practice and I realize that although I need a more forgiving iron, I STILL DON'T want a huge ass mallet either! From the domestic side, I've been looking into the following clubs: Mizuno's JPX 900 Forged Callaway Apex Forged Taylormade M1 iron Ping i200 and G irons There are other irons but these seem to catch my eye the most at this time. What I'm looking for is an easy midsize or smaller head size to hit. I personally have hit the Ping G30's and LOVED THEM! I plan to go to a TRUE fitting store, that has everything from Miura to PXG to hit these and other irons (wood and wedges too) in this range. Once I get my specs, then I'll go from there on where to purchase my sticks. Now that that's out of the way, how does the MP-66 stack up with the above irons in forgiveness, head size, and playability? Another concern would be is long irons. How easy is it to hit the MP-66's 3,4, and 5 irons? I DO NOT want a hybrid! I had one fit for me with my last set and I really didn't like it! So I really need a full set that I can play 3-pw or a combo set where the long irons will be like to the above irons (still no mallets) and 6/7 through PW could be blades or a players type forgiving iron. (Don't like the combo set for Callaway's Apex's yet, but we'll see.) I may opt out of the PW that comes with the set and get a true wedge too, if that makes any sense. Many thanks as always to the TSG forums! Now on a separate note, does anyone want to take my Security+ test for me? LOL!!!!!! Daris L. Cotton

    F**k Cancer - an update on TourSpecGolfer

    Thanks Cforselius!

    New Gold's Option

    Chris, When you say you like "fit face", are you referring to Bettinardi's F.I.T. (Feel Impact Technology) face? These seems very similar to it. I really would like to get one of Gold Factory's putters, but I like flow neck and Bettinardi's FCB type putters. Can he do a flow neck in place of the plumber's necks?

    SICK SICK set of Buchi VS200's!

    Chris mentioned this in his initial post, but now that I think about it, they'd probably be graphite iron shafts. my bad for misunderstanding Chris.

    Mizuno MP-54 is similar to...

    Yes nobmontana, I am referring to the 54's. The H5's are just too big for me.
  9. what? I know Mizuno is a damn good golf club, but if I'm gonna spend about $1000 on a set, I started to think, should I really limit my options since I know about TSG? The place where I would be buy them, I've already made a verbal agreement, but I always by hats, gloves, balls, etc. from there. I will also be taking lessons as well. They have JDM stuff: Honma, OnOFF, Miura, and others, but I think TSG's prices are a little better. Not 100% sure. With that being said, I really wanted the MP-25's, but after putting marking tape and hitting the faces of these and the HP-54's with Nippons 1150GH (hope I said that right...), I left better markings with the 54's....damn! >:( Anywho, per the subject box, what JDM line is similar (if that's possible), to the HP-54's. I really like the look of the Buchi VS200 (I really just like the sheep logo. :p), but it's out of my price range and I think its listed as a muscle cavity back....right? The Bridgestone's look really nice too. (Could see doing a combo set with these. Also, I've always had a soft spot for the Muziik's too. (Can't remember what you said about them though Chris. Can't find the message.) Any way fellas, any help here would be greatly appreciated. As much as I want to play blades, even with me taking lessons, I realize that I should look for a players game improvement iron set. Thanks. Daris 2016 PS I may still try and do heads only, because the guy (Evan Sturdivant @ Club Champion Golf/ Rockville, MD) that put together my last set was a beast!!! He's working at this location now, so I don't know how this'll work. In other words, if I get fitted by him again, do I have to buy clubs from them.

    Crazy SBi-02 Blades in Satin

    You just refuse to have me give up on hitting blades huh Chris. :p
  12. I could get a combination of three custom tour limited edition Benttanardi's, Lajosi's or Gold's Factory putters for that matter and still wouldn't be close to this....damn!

    What come close to Seven Dreamers shaft's

    This is true Vegaman, but aren't there, from your experiences, some really good shafts out there without SD's bells and whistles?

    What come close to Seven Dreamers shaft's

    Had health and money issues, but that will be changing this year...I hope. Also, as I mentioned earlier, even if I had the money, I'm rough with my gear. I don't sling it around or throw my clubs if I make a bad shot, but I remember someone saying on the forums that JP gear, especially the shafts, require more care than stuff made in the states. Hope i"m remembering this right. Besides, it was hypothetical as well.

    Buchi VS200 MB Irons

    So are these more or less forgiving than Buchi's 2014 Global Edition CB's?
