  1. Hi gang! I hope you are all staying safe! Pretty crazy times. So I got these Honma Irons on a whim a few weeks ago and re-shafted them with some nice PX LZ 6.0 shafts. These heads are really soft and quite forgiving. These are legit "Forged" unlike the TR20P which has steel face + carbon steel body. So you get the nice soft carbon steel forged feel at impact. They are quite forgiving too. I believe they meant to position these between the TW747V and TW747Vx of the previous gen series. These are slightly more compact than the 747Vx but stronger lofted than the 747V. Pretty small offset. Standard LLL and I would say condition is 9/10 (or better) Some minor chatter marks and hitting marks on the face and sole from normal use. I only got a couple of range sessions on mat. I also have the original TR20 Vizard 85 R shafts that I can include for and additional $50 if you are interested. I'm also including a nearly new TW-W 56 deg wedge with a Modus 125 Wedge shaft. This one is completely stock and in perfect condition. Bought it new and I only had one range session. I wanted these to work for me but I am going to continue using the Seven CB Protos for this season! Price is $750 + Shipping , Paypal net to me. (Will ship worldwide.) Iron Heads only is $650 + Shipping Shaft only is $175 + shipping
  2. Plenty of 50 deg wedges on the market. I currently use a JDM Cleveland RTX4 forged 50/56 combo. But I assume you prefer a PW or AW from an ironset that is around 49 or 50 deg?
  3. That's what I was thinking. I've not heard negative feedback on any Orion stuff.
  4. The shaft weight on the DG S200 is 129g uncut and about 119g after cutting the butt according to their Japanese website. So your head weight on the IDBL #6 comes out as 267g which is inline with the other heads you mention here. Your club weight looks right on the money against the stock weight that Cuistot provided. which makes sense.
  5. Clicgear makes an adapter designed to be used for stand bag with legs. I mostly use a Sun Mountain cart bag with my clicgear pushcart but sometimes will use a smaller Sunmountain stand bag when I want to play my secondary set. The adapter works perfectly. The witdth of the bumps are adjustable so you can use any stand bag as long as you cart has a similar bag holding mechanism at the top. https://www.clicgear.com/accessories/bag-cozy.php
  6. That would be the Benock "BIS" (Benock Interchangeable Shaft)
  7. Made a couple fo last minute changes and they are working out very very well! At least that's what I got out of the two range sessions yesterday and today. I'm glad I made the move to go lighter. 100g iron shafts feel very good to me now. And these Crazy shafts are so accurate! Back to playing on the course on Saturday and it's supposed to be 80 deg F (27 deg) out here too! Excited! I hope this set up works in real world play situations! **** Ping G410 LST / Loop GK Grandista RS-F The III / Loop FW Six TS Grandista RS-F The V / Loop FW Seven Buchi SP-301 21.5 & 24.5 / Crazy STP Iron 85 Seven CB Prototype 5-9 / Crazy CBI-80 Ltd Cleveland RTX 4 46 / Modus 105 Wedge Cleveland RTX 4 Forged 50 & 56 / Modus 105 Wedge Benock Blue Dragon II ****
  8. I've re-shafted the Shinagawa split set with some 75g MMT shafts. Have not hit them yet but looking forward to it!!
  9. They're still in business. I think Swiiish are the best. if you use compact irons, these fit the best. Others are just too loose.
  10. Nice comparo pics!! Love the shape on that R1. The OnOffs look huge compared to the R1s in the last pic!! 🙂
  11. I've owned a couple of similar devices by Yupitel. I'm sure the PRGR one is as good. I believe the current version is their 2nd or 3rd iteration with additional features. The new feature for this version is that it can calculate approximate calories burned!! Cool! I can show my wife how much exercise Im getting from swinging my clubs!! 🙂 As long as you don't expect it to be a mini Trackman with the same level of accuracy... then they are very useful. just looking at your swing speed will give you an idea of how you are doing that day in comparison to other days.
  12. Starting May 5th, WA golf courses will re-open. They will limit groups to twosomes ( except when you are a family group who live together ) One person per cart except for family members. No bunker rakes to be made available. Just smooth out the sand with shoes. Pins on greens will not be allowed to be touched or removed. Some courses may eliminate pins all together and use an alternative marker to indicate hole location. The cup on green will be elevated so that balls will not roll in. *** I guess they all make sense from a safety perspective but scoring will be messed up with regard to the no hole/cup idea... I wonder how the PGA Tour will be playing that part of the game ...
  13. Very easy once you get a hang of it. In addition to the shaft puller, heat gun is probably another essential.
  14. The 2018 RS-F 9.5 is higher launching for a 9.5 deg. It's a really good head overall but just a but high launching for me. Feel at impact is better on the 2018 than the 2016 and the sweet spot is larger for sure. The 2016 just has a bit more bite at impact which I like. 2018 is more refined and better mannered. I liked them both but chose to keep the 2016.
  15. Nice!!! I've had urges before to split open a head but never had the chance to actually do it. As for the weight on the heel, I wouldn't be surprised if most drivers (newer than 5 or 6 years) have something similar. Even USDM drivers are slightly more draw biased these days compared to how they were 3-4 years ago. Personally, I feel draw bias weighing with a slightly open face angle works best. That's how my Grandista RS-D is and how I have my Ping G410 LST set up.
