    https://www.prgr-golf.com/product/wedge/18-rs-wedge.html It does say on this page the wedges are "Made in Japan" but who knows these days.... 😞

  4. Those are some awesome feeling irons! I've decided on irons that I am putting together with the Monacos. I shall reveal my new iron set once I actually have them! 🙂 I will say that I chose some heads that "should" feel extremely soft at impact.

    Crazy fw 80

    If you are talking about the Red Gold colored FEX 65 , aren’t they high launch? bx70 is low launch.

    I don’t know... all the Crazy driver shafts that I’ve tried to like in the past didn’t like me back ... if you want a more controlled lower launch with your FW , Fire Express BX70 plays really nicely in an FW. I have an F3 flex in my Modart 3wood and an F2 flex in my 5 wood. Debating now if I should get another one for my driver...

    Gotta be careful with the "forged" term for PRGR irons. They use this term loosely. RS forged is not one piece forged. It has a forged body but the face is Chromoly. Similar construction to the previous gen RS forged irons. The wedges on the other hand are full forged.

    Crazy fw 80

    Maruman Shuttle heads are high launch to start with. Perhaps 6.4 is too flexy for you? Hard to say without knowing your swing style. FW80 is a very good FW shaft. With the right specs, I have had very good experience with it. I have used FW80s with 7.4 to 8.2 flex and all worked pretty well. ( 8.2 was probably a bit much shaft for me. ) Only issue for me is that it is a bit on the light side for an FW shaft. I have a moderate tempo with smooth transition. Driver SS is probably right around 100 mph these days.
  9. I use FEX BX70 in my Modart 3 &5 Woods just under 70g but pretty stout. I get good distance with good stability. Also have Diamana W 80 S , Graphite Design TP8 S in my other 3Ws. A bit heavy than what I should be using but the added weight provide and stability.
  10. What aspect of the FEX UT 100 are you referring to as a “monster shaft?” Is it the weight? Flight? Feel?
  11. You previously had the TR500 /Monaco combo that you had sold to Cuistot. He let me test it a while back and that’s where I got the idea!! :). That TR500 combo felt special.

    US Open pick

    After watching yesterday’s round I’m not confident that I can break 100 there... and I’m a 6.5 hdcp at my home course. Still it would be interesting to try!! :) I’m rooting for Matsuyama but things are looking good for DJ. Though if Poulter can keep up the good rounds he may stay in contention!!
  13. Was thinking of forgiving cavities like Epon AF 505 or Seven MCBs I have Modus 120 S in my Seven x Shinagawa MBs and I think they are a good match. Monaco’s in the Shinagawas I tried before but did not work out too well.
  14. Monacos are coming my way. I get a Toblerone too? :) For the last 2 years I have been mainly using 100g to 105g shafts due to a left hand injury that I inflicted upon myself from too much practice!! Earlier this year, I realized how bad my iron game was and went back to heavier steel and PRESTO! the inconsistency in my iron shots magically disappeared. ( well... mostly ) I think I am almost 100% recovered from with my hand issue and thus it made sense to go back to heavier steel shafts. I have now switched back to Modart 120 S , 120 X and 125 S in my iron sets and I just needed to give the Monaco S another shot. I am so happy that I did because with the lighter shafts, I was doing all sorts of unnatural things like flipping and scooping .. you name it. I'm in the process of deciding what heads to use with these Monacos.
  15. Pm sent on the Monacos. Would like to see pics.
