Different irons/wedges for summer and winter?
« on: September 09, 2017, 06:42:28 AM »
This will be the first time that I've ever owned 2 sets of irons and wedges at the same time and keeping them, so I thought I'd make them weather specific. Thinner sole for summer and wider soles for winter is my reasoning behind this experiment, as well as lighter shafts for more carry in the winter. Hopefully it works.

Summer:
MP4/54 Yoro and T7 all shafted with Quadra Fire Express DGL 120 and Iomics grips.

Winter:
MP64 and S5 all shafted with Orochi Tour Spec 90g and Pure grips.

Anyone else do this?

Irons: Epon AF-Tour MB 5i - PW + OTi120x
Wedges: Epon 208 KGX 53°/59° + OTi110x.
Putter: SeeMore SB1 + Accra FX300.

Seems like a good idea, our spring is a lot like your winter with middling temps and a lot of moisture and soggy ground. Definitely different than August play and could see an advantage to have a wider soled set with more bounce in those conditions.

You SOOOO know the British climate. We had a couple of weeks of warm (25c) weather this summer.......

On the other hand, we do have mild winters so unless storm Aileen, Brian, Caroline, Dylan, Eleanor, Fionn, Georgina, Hector, Iona, James, Karen, Larry, Maeve, Niall, Octavia, Paul, Rebecca, Simon, Tali, Victor and Winifred comes to these shores, I'll be playing all Winter long I reckon.

In your case, you have too few seasons and in my case I have too many sets
