    Re: Brands that come to mind

    Just watching Rick shiels doing 5 years of ping drivers

    Explains ping always released 2 club sets a g and an I

    The g more game improvement

    I for better player

    Explains why I always think of them as game improvement

    I used to have all g15 from lw- driver

    Still use the 5 wood

    Re: Brands that come to mind

    Perceptions are interesting. I think Ping/titleist excel in a lot of the markets.

    Putters - Scotty's/ odyssey and Ping
    Wedges - Titleist, Ping
    irons - Game improvers - Ping, Taylormade, Callaway, Cobra
    irons - better player/pro - Nike, Titleist, Mizuno
    hybrids - Every manufacture
    Woods - Taylormade, Ping, Callaway recently
    2017 Handicap monthly progress - Apr 8.9 May 9.5 June 7.3 July 7.0 Aug 6.1 Sept 6.7

    I'd of never had ping down for wedges personally

    But then that's the whole point!

    Mizuno do a decent line in game improvers as well though don't they? Wouldn't the standard JPX range fall under that?

    I think everyone does a game improvement iron

    Titliest Ap1s are one of the most underused game improvement iron apparently ..... they are super forgiving but overlooked because people see Titliest as the better player brand

    I never thought id play titliest until I looked into it

    I know I shouldn't just take their word for it, but I often look at Golfbidder's handicap guide for an indication of who they're aimed at. So if it shows the full bar of 0-28 I consider them game improvers pretty much. The 716 AP1s they have as 0-21 ish. JPX900 Hot Metal they have as 0-28. All the different Ping G* versions are 0-28 of course. The JPX900s are the ones I have my eye on actually, but I'm waiting for price to come down a bit (or I might just get JPX850s).

    weird that different companies have different ratings

    american golf have AP1s up to 28 handicap

    I use them and im off 27 now and have got my first cut using them

    struggling with my irons recently but down to swing changes which are finally bedding in and now im striking them well again (fingers crossed for today)

    I don't have a lot of faith in my irons really. I've had them over a year now, back when I bought them I had no idea which irons to get as I didn't look into at anywhere near as much as I do nowadays. They are 'uniflex' which is somewhere between regular and stiff I guess but I never hear of that with any other irons to be honest. And I never see or hear of anyone else using Warbird irons. Would love a new set if I can get hold of the funds.

    Edit: Sorry, gone off topic a bit here - it is kind of on topic though since I'll be looking at game improvers as discussed!
