If I'm playing a lot, I am usually 70s or low 80s. But I dont play difficult courses. On the Florida trips I'm rusty so I start in the low 90s and work my way down to mid to low 80s by the end of the trip. Course I dont know if I want to take the epons on the Florida trip. My biggest weakness is the short game from 70-120. I need to practice the short game a lot more.

I was playing the lpga in Daytona beach last year, think I was 9 over on the front and shot even par on the back. I will have a blow up hole. I need to work on the mental part of the game.

do you have your 505s already? im wanting to shift from 7 to 5
and i haven't played more than 2 rounds this year lol

I just got the 8-pw on Tuesday. But its below freezing here. They are talking 3-8" of snow tonight.  I dont know when I will be able to hit them, unless I go to golf galaxy store.

ah! i dont blame you for not attempting to hit them. deep freeze setting in.

Yuk...yeah that's one great thing about florida..,golf is 360 days a year...come back down to flor8da, I'll play the lpga courses with you.  I'm just north of there, one exit from world golf village...conservatory is where it's at, the ocean part of the ocean course as well...

I'm back playing the 705s now...I just hit better shots more consistently with them...

Next time I come down I will bring my clubs. I might be tempted to come up there and play Tpc Sawgrass.  Haven't played that yet.

You even hit the short irons better?

I have any Orlando trip scheduled end of February. Playing Bella Colina, Ritz,  etc. 20 guys are going and 9 courses over 9 days.

These have my attention as an easy to hit long iron to mix with my satin 302s. Has anyone with high swing speed had any problems with the thin faces caving in?

You might cave in the 302 you're so powerful squirts...these are too long for you...what's the need for a 300 yard 4i?!?!?

Plus epon combo sets are poor form imo...youre too cool for that...u could take Tommy Fleetwood's lunch money...

I got to hit my 8-pw today. Now granted I've only played 9 holes the last 3 months and it was 50*, sprinkling and the wing was blowing about 15mph.

They seemed to fly really high. Felt great even with the range rocks(pinnacle practice balls). My first impression is really positive. I will be playing tomorrow and provide more feedback.

I hit the irons today. It was wet out and I was playing bridge stone extra soft as my winter ball. It a really nice 8 iron. Flight is high. Pw was just ok. Tended to by high and right. It kind of looks closed to my eye. So I'm wondering if I'm trying to compensate for that.

New iron syndrome😂.

Same for me with higher flight. I tend to hit low bullets but when I hit my 6 iron with the blacks they literally soared which makes me think balls will tend to land like a butterfly with sore legs (lee Trevino?).

Yes I might need another set with different shafts that launch lower. Haha

Can I ask why does everyone want their irons to launch "lower"? The Tour average is 32 yds peak height according to Trackman. How high do you guys hit your 7i?
Driver: jBEAM Glorious 10.5* + Motore VT 7.0x, 45.5", Superstroke.
HY: Fourteen UT716 1i/3i/5i + Thump h90x, 39"-42", Superstroke.
Irons: OnOff Forged 6i - PW + Accra Tour Ti Mesh, Superstroke.
Wedges: Epon Tour 51*/57* + Accra Tour Ti Mesh, Superstroke.
Putter: Rife Barbados, Garsen.

Ian: who said lower? I want higher!!

Also what do you mean when you say avg Tour player is 32 yards peak height?? 32 yards higher than an amateur? With what iron?

I need more time with mine but its 20* outside today and I only have 8-pw. I think the 505 fly higher then the 705.

I ordered the 705 limited black so I might be selling the combo set or keeping it as a backup.
