    Yeah, I had regular flex rifles in my last set. So I’ve gotten used to swinging much easier than I should to get the best distance. It feels nice to actually try and hit the ball hard and hit it further because of the stiffer shafts. Before I would swing harder and the ball would hook, or balloon and go shorter.

    Now when I swing hard and feel like I’m hitting the ball with the right tempo I’m getting rewarded with good spin and longer distance

    I feel in love with Project X 6.0’s, man the flight is just piercing! Problem is that they are almost always a hefty up charge!

    I got them with the set practically brand new for $125, so I figured I got $125 in shafts alone. Let alone that they were attached to a set of heads that I’ve wanted for a long long time, so I’m pretty glad

    Just bought a TM your preferred UDI 18° iron. Been wanting a driving iron for a long time, and I’m glad I finally found one in my price range

    To promote body rotation, strengthening the core and to keep the arms out of the swing. My golf coach has one at his facility and it feels great when swinging it.

    Almost bought one of these a few years ago. Swung one in the pro shop and was impressed.

    Had a swing of it yesterday. It completely takes the arms out of the swing and promotes body turn. The arms then just follow the body's turn (as they should). Such a simple device. Highly recommended.

    It actually feels pretty soft on the miss hits, for sure not jarring. It just has a big time effect on the ballflight. I caught one off the toe, and it didn’t kill me with how far it went left, it just lost about 10 yards of distance. But man when you get one out of the middle it feels like nothing else. It’s a phenomenal golf club, and I’m glad I have it now. I hit it three times in my round, twice perfectly and once as I described above. I love the flight, I was able to hit a high and low shot, and I hit it about 230 yards so it fits my gap really well

    Those copper inlay Tourneys were some of the most beautiful irons produced back then!! Cleaned up. Paint fill redone. You will have a "keeper" set. With all the ferrules intact and looking like original wrap grips... You got a buy at $26!!! Those persimmons were not the upper end like the M85's. Still, they were fantastic for that timeframe. I would not recommend even hitting the woods. If you do, don't hit anything other than a really soft "Ladies" ball. I would be afraid of cracking those persimmons due to the solid balls of today and the age of those heads.
