Fourteen tc UC716 driving iron/ute
« on: July 17, 2018, 08:30:07 PM »
 Might have raved about this before but  anyway......

Anyone looking for a VERY powerfull long  drving iron/ute  with  ONSET  shud take a long  hard peek at this, its a brute,  I have the 18* 1iron  and its really really good.  hit mid high (yes!, high ,  much higher  than my 1iron  or 3 iron )  and its  anti left as you cud ever go, mine is hafted with an NS105s. perfect match really.  replacement for the tight short holes that you umm and ahhh over a driver with, not good off the ground, loft is too low and  head is too big, its a driver alt.
the 21 and 24   are for the ground and look much easier to hit with stock shaft.
 the head is a mini driver style not iron so it seesm to be a bette fit for my eye off the tee. its taking the driving iron spot which I  thought wud never happen but is.


 high  recco!

Quick range session
1i......doubt I'll be keeping the it. JBEAM Glorious 3w is just sooooo easy to hit from the tee, and longer. Face height is very deep compared to the jBEAM. Need to tee it higher which I couldn't do at the range.

3i.....has every chance to stay in the bag. High and straight from the tee. My Ping G20 20/Accra combo is a fade machine, which is surprising given the offset. Onoff Prospec I seemed to hit thin more than the other two, so this could be on the chopping block.

5i.......unsure. Again my Ping G20 27/Accra combo slightly favours a fade, where as the Fourteen was a bit of both, just higher. My OnOff 5i was very similar to the Fourteen, just slightly lower.

I might put the Thump from the 1i into the 5i and see how that goes.

More testing to be done, including on a course and on a launch monitor.

thump is an extremely sturdy shaft.... might do u  good to change it  about.
in the 5i it wud be  exceptional.

so softer In the 1i  and yes u can tee it higher.

steel shafts in these are exceptional   modus 105  I have ,its perfect  for me

9 hole test yesterday. 2 shots

The 1i was only 10 yards short of the Glorious 3w on a straight hit, but it was the other way around on a slight fade. Glorious felt and sounded better.

The 3i on a well struck straight hit was in between the OnOff (longest) and the G20 (shortest), but there was only 5-10yds between them all. Both the the Fourteen and OnOff were very forgiving when hit low on the face, to the point where the Fourteen managed to get on a 245yd hole when it pitched at least 70yds before that! The G20 not so much. Lost a lot of distance on a thin shot.

The 5i needs a grip change as it's very smooth. That being said it wasn't short, but it was no longer than my OnOff 5i and my G20. Probably the most forgiving of the three too. I suppose I'm just looking for more accuracy with this club and I think that the Fourteen could be that club.....but the Ping is close....but the OnOff feels great. Onoff 5i

Like Stu, WHAT AM I TALKING ABOUT, these are awesome. Easily the best hybrids I've hit. Aren't going anywhere soon. I even tested the 1i (16*) off the deck and yes, no problem to hit clean. Mine are swing weighted at, and get this, E8!
Have to give a mention to the Diamana Thump h90x shafts. Truly fantastic for my swing at the moment. Mid height and a flat penetrating flight. Seem to be low spinners in to wind. Looking at changing the Tour AD105x for the equivalent Thump. I have changed the grips to midsize which equals a straight to a slight fade for me. No good in a left to right wind but just drop your right leg back and Booooom!
Shot 78 today in terrible weather. My lowest is 77 so I'm on a charge......but I'm still off 16!!

Well, the performance of these (Ian's ex 1 & 3 with Thumps) blew me away this morning! The heads are on the large side - very easy from the tee but surprisingly easy from the deck too. Swingweight is very high, which I don't mind too much as I play quite heavy iron set ups, but I am tempted to see what reducing the swingweight a tad might do with the Fourteens. Very hot faces and penetrating flights. These will be a nice and realistic alternative (depending on course) to my usual set up, between driver and irons, of an Exotics 4 wood and PRGR i+ utility. For years the 4 wood has been a CB4, but it looks like being edged out by a CBX.
