You’d be surprised what a natural ball stiker can hit the ball with some upgrades every now and then.

Now...

Never liked the 690 CBs but I did play a set of 690MBs for about 10 years. That was actually back when I played a few times a month and I loved those irons. The heads are still hanging in my workshop.

Here's what I'm looking for: My 180 yd shot to spin enough to hold a green



Why would this matter to you if you are playing on soft greens? If they were "tour" greens then I would completely agree.

re: Iron technology
Are you asking why it’s important to hit and stay on the green even if they’re soft, Bagman? Or are you a better chipper than putter when the greens are soft and every footstep from the past week is still impressed on the ground?

re: Iron technology
Now it’s just obvious from the stupid handles.

The verbiage and crappy attitude makes it a no brainer.

Wait, have I been emailing you back and forth about those M2s? I have IRL names on email and forget the screen names.


Yes, you have emailed me. I am going to get fitted for some P790s but it will be after the wife gives me a gift certificate to David Toms 265 for Christmas.

Oh ok. I'm playing my biddies M2 tours this weekend. His are standard lie/loft

Let me know when you get fitted. If I like his, I'll wait and buy yours as we discussed. I'm going in to hunting mode after this weekend.

re: Iron technology
Soft greens are receptive. Are you getting all of your knowledge(about golf) from the "Pros" at Dicks Sporting Goods still?

re: Iron technology
They’re MORE receptive. Still need spin to hold them though, right, Bagman?

But in general, I don't buy into the "channel" and "slot" nonsense.

Cally, TM and Ping(maybe others) are all claiming faster ball speeds because of this. I still have not hit any of them.

re: Iron technology
We could probably go find a few Rick Shield videos and check the ball speed numbers on his irons. Not sure if his older videos picked up club data though.

His videos go back 5 years if you scroll down far enough.
