Sleeper of an iron
« on: December 27, 2018, 10:54:13 PM »
Got a demo grindworks CBI forged for my son who's looking to get into golf.  Obviously I hit it as well and goodness, it's a sleeper gem of an iron.  Those that like the epon feel should really get a set.  Mid size, some off set and forgiving enough but the main outstanding thing is the workability.  Easy to choke down to keep the flight low, fades and draws were easy enough to hit more often than not.

Well done Tario, KK and Nimi.

Need to figure out shaft weight and flex for him.  He's a big lad and strong.  Newbie handsy of course.

Isnít it a copy of the 301?

A, no hand-me-downs available from your collection?

When my son outgrew his junior set, I re-shafted my old set of JPX 800 Proís with R2 flex Zelos 7ís, hard stepped 1x, and cut -1.5Ē.

Sure looks like a 301 copy. 

Will likely hand him the roddio meister M.  Am.leaning towards modus shafts for him. Just not sure if 105 or 120 and whether regular or stiff. I'm thinking 120 stiff.

Will likely let him start with the Crazy Proto wedges as well.  Will get him to use pn ansers and he should be spoilt for choice there.  For driver, likely the Modart DS with the mavc 80 stiff.  That's forgiving enough.

Pretty nice starter set.  Will his first car be a Ferrari or a Lamborghini?

I think the GW Iron is the way the Epon 302 would have gone...

Lol.. he'll have to earn that if he wants it and I hope he opts for the latter between the 2.

I had a hit of the new driver head as well with some muziik shaft.  Not shabby at all.

Art, I suggest starting him out with sgi like the 703 or something pocket cavity ish...the grind works pocket cavity from Tario/Nimi would be perfect...Iím sure your boy was raised well but this new generation is soft and they have the attention span of fruit flies...itís not all their fault itís the social media/iPad culture...kids are coming out of college demanding employers to work around them and put together paint by numbers for them...Iím seeing it more and more...have fired 3 millennials in the past year and a half alone in an 11 person consultancy...okay that got a little rantish...my point is that  golf is hard, especially when youíre new to the game, I think making the game easier through technology and craftsmanship is a good way to attract the younger generation to the game...

I see where you're coming from H and there's logic.  I can get my hands on a set of Hogan forged apex edge.  Very forgiving and in had that a long while back. Maybe I'll use that to start him off.

Ah, those are great, I actually had that set before getting into jdm, upgrading to the edge pros was stupid, I took a month off and played down to a 9 and thought I was a player...now back to the pocket cavity category despite having a much better game than when I played the forged cbís...
