RYOMA u21. my favourite club right now! i want a u18
« on: June 27, 2016, 09:51:12 PM »
been gaming this for several weeks now and this one is probably my favourite club in the bag now.
my decision to game this instead of a driving iron probably was the wisest decision thats helped my
game and saved me a few strokes per round.

its super long much much longer than the 21* loft indicated. this is probably one of the only utilities i don't
hook although one gripe i have is its too upright id like something flatter. the GD stock shaft in stiff is very very
good , was going to change but it works so well i decided not to reshaft anymore.

I'm thinking of the U18. some say its long, 3w long in fact . if thats the case i might go this route instead of 3w.
anyone can confirm this? super forgiving face, long hot head and shorter shaft should make this a fairway finder
and much easier to tame than the 3w?

Yes my 21 is longer than my Romaro type R 18 Ute and the Ryoma 18 is super long with lots roll....sold it as I can't seem to be able to fit it into any of my distance gaps....BUT boy...do I still miss it when I'm face with those crazy long par 4s....

In my view, any 18* UT is difficult to hit and Ryoma is no easier. Somehow  Ryoma hooks more that other Ut.  Having said that, I can't get the 24 and 27 out of my bag either.

I had the 18 UT in the past.
Easy to hit on the practice range less so in actual use.

But when I caught the ball properly it flew ...

Too upright for you makes me glad I haven't tried it. It would never work for me.

I always thought the best Ut was better than the best DI. At least for me...

Yeah it's visibly toe up and I play normal lie clubs.
I agree a good UT is better than the best Di. I've given up
On DI in lofts lower than 20. 22-23 I can still manage.
