Grindworks irons
« on: December 11, 2017, 04:13:00 AM »
Hi to one and all.

For my new years present to myself, I'm going to go with a new set of irons. Grindworks irons are a set I'm looking at but can't find too many reviews.

I've seen a few threads on here but nothing new. I want a forgiving head so the cavity model looks interesting.

Any views pleàse

Try the Dual Pocket Irons.

I had the dual pocket for a little while, shafted with Crazy CBi02. Nice high ball flight. Not as soft as I like and they were 'clicky', but that's what you get with an undercut cavity. Too much offset for me as well. Good looking iron though.

I’ve hit all 3 models...
If you have the Game the CB’s are very good.. I think they are along the lines of the Epon 302’s in size etc etc.

Both heads (DP and CB) have their pros and cons. It depends what you need or which head suits your swing better. Don't forget to find the right shaft (weight).

From my own testing and fitting with various players from slow swinging high handicapper to very fast swinging touring pro I would suggest the CB-1 if you need more stopping power a.k.a. spin and steeper angle of descent for example. A head type like the Dual Pocket seems to reduce spin and flatten the launch angle for many players no matter of their swing. So if you really need to lower your spin or need the extra forgiveness and distance you should look at the DP.

All in all grindworks heads are very good and perform very well compared to similar head types.

I didn't have the Nidaime heads in hand so far but the composition looks well thought with the option to make the transition with the 7iron as a pocket cavity or as a cavity back type of head.

I play the 1st generation DC irons and could not be happier.  I am a senior golfer and have been playing the Epon 703 with MCI 65 shafts before switching to GW with roddio I-6 and Fire Express I-65.  Yes the GW, being the 1st gen, is clicky no doubt but I am okay with it.  I was advised that the 2nd gen is less clicky due to the elimination of GW badge.  Since I already have a set of Epon 551, I would not even consider a set of GW CB.  BTW, my goto club is the GW AW which is part of the set.

Are the GW dual pocket and Epon 703/5 the same mold, I wonder? Very very similar design and construction, even the lofts are almost identical

I am sure Tario model the DP after the 703 but improved on it.  It is slightly shorter heel to toe and overall a tad smaller.  The design was before the launching of the 705, which I believe is even smaller still but with the same forgiveness and loft.

I have the nidaime and they are brilliant .....suprisingly not chunky at all and I've used blades my whole life so the adjustment was not existed. ...but all in all you can't go wrong with any model

Nothing bad at all, guess it’s a new brand that will grow!
