HELP! Irons are Stuck in my Bag
« on: June 06, 2019, 09:34:41 AM »
Finally put the TR500's in the rotation and now I can't get them out of the bag.

I have several iron sets I enjoy but for me, there is nothing else that checks all the boxes with a score of 11 on a 1-10 scale.

They are the best feeling iron. (S20)
They flat out perform.
Look amazing.
Feedback is like no other.

They will be in the bag for the very least the rest of the Summer.

Almost forgot there is one drawback. It's harder walking around the course when every time you hit your shot Woody pays a visit.  ;D

Checking ebay there are a few sets, one of which they are all but giving them away.  If you are a blade, CB guy you owe it to yourself to give these a go especially for what you can pick a set up for ATM.

I've always liked the look of these.  How do these play compared to the other prgr iron a few rave about (can't remember the name).   Don't like that and found it way over hyped for me...

I think you're talking about the idbl, and if so then I agree with you. These tr 500's look fantastic.

The idbl's (IMO) are a very good iron. They are a set I rotate in about every 4-5 months for a couple of weeks. To me they feel a bit too heavy, almost clumsy compared to the TR500's.

I think I forgot to mention they are incredibly forgiving for a compact CB as well. 

When looking down at address you'd bet money you were looking at a blade.

I got in a 7i head to try after reading all the good reports.  Just didn't find it to be what all was said about it.  Shows again it's different strokes....

I got a set from Supo, and the TR500's are a keeper.

Im sure theyre gr8...I may pick up a set of heads for kicks...I still think u guys who had a bad experience with the idbl probably just had a bad build or bad shafts for the head and you ur swing..,the idbl really is very good...it is swing dependent ....I really liked em though...
