I’m calling bull shit. I have the latest greatest everything, don’t play a bit better than I did 10 years ago. They just look new, & shiny. My 15 yr old Scotty Cameron sure as hell cant be beat with any putter today. Fat grip or otherwise lol

Muzino tour style 60 deg wedge still grips like when it was new even on short chips. Only reason upgraded was could not find out if grooves were legal on R&A or USGA. websites.

I carry a 15 year old cleveland lob wedge spin isn't great but it's all about practice control and consistency. Nothing better than an Odyssey putter or a milled putter. Insert putters just aren't the same.

At 6:25, might be to do with the shorter shafts. Longer shafts means more clubhead speed thus more distance when struck correctly. At least test with the same shaft lenght, doens't matter what tech you put in the head if the shaft is shorter.

Unique video concept and well done testing. Thanks! I'm sitting on an '09 set throughout the bag and will probably make 1 or 2 more seasons. Probably new wedges next season though. Taylormade Burner Superfast driver and Burner '09 irons.

I think the condition of the clubs is a confound that should be accounted for. the real question is if the technology of today's clubs are significantly better than previous. also where the lofts the same as the new irons? I really doubt there's that significant of a difference here.
Golf Monthly
Golf Monthly - 4 years ago
The condition might have a small effect, but surely that's an important factor when testing old vs new that if you're buying a set you would have to consider? The lofts were 1-degree different in the 6-iron, so while that 1 degree will account for a few yards, we don't think it would make up the full 8-10 we experienced during launch monitor testing. Hope that helps!

They need to be tested brand new. If you get a manufactured brand new set that is ten years old. You can properly match them up with the new stuff.

Jake - did you consider that the loft of your current irons may be stronger...? I cannot imagine forged clubfaces have really changed that much
Golf Monthly
Golf Monthly - 4 years ago
Yes I did, the Ping S59 6-iron has 30 degrees of loft and my 825-Pro 6-iron has 29, so while that 1 degree will account for a few yards, we don't think it would make up the full 8-10 we experienced during launch monitor testing.

Is it only me who doesn't want a good result from a poorly struck shot? Blades all the way.
Golf Monthly
Golf Monthly - 4 years ago
No better feeling than striping it with blades, but think most golfers would put the final number on the scorecard first!
phelps243255
phelps243255 - 4 years ago
I'm curious as to the reason the one gentleman lost 10 yards on his old 6 iron. I would hazard a guess his current 6 has a stronger loft then a model 10 years ago rather than the shaft length. I hit a three iron blade in a fitting and hit the identical blade in a half inch shorter shaft and hardly lost any distance and half an ich is quite a difference in long irons. As far as distance with drivers is concerned. I can hit a 40 year old driver just about as far as a modern driver on a dry day(in fact in tournament play in high winds I play a wooden golden bear driver because it lauches very low and goes about 20 yards further than my 3 wood and spins around 1500). What manufacturers are doing(since the club is maxed out as much as it can be for maximum hits for the last 10 years give or take) is trying to make the most forgiving it can be while keeping flight and mishit ball flight and ball speed as high as possible. The difference between my m1 and my r11s and r7 after adjusting them for the ball flight I wanted is basically nothing besides feel and forgiveness. I hit the ping g driver vs the m1 with the same distance, an ping was more forgiving off of center hits but with being more forgiving I couldn't feel if I had hit it perfect or slightly off the face which doesn't work for me I need to know when I make a good swing and would rather be punished slightly more when I'm not swinging it well than have a bad habit engrained in my swing. For anyone looking to upgrade drivers or really any club I think you need to chops what you want the club to do have feel or have forgiveness, because distance is what it is now and you won't be hitting a club that lets you hit your best golf shot any further than any other club in the last decade. I'd say your better players should chase a club with feel(blades, drivers and woods like m1 titleist ect) and players who are just trying to go out and play well and not trying to do this for a living play clubs with forgiveness(chunky irons cavity backs drivers like ping g possibly some of the Nike ones ect) hey just my 2 cents though!

Jan-Pierre Vidizzon
Jan-Pierre Vidizzon - 4 years ago
Thanks for the video. I think some of the perception of the significance of today's technology compared to older clubs may be skewed. I agree with increased forgiveness on off center hits being better with today's drivers vs. ones 10 years old, but I'm not certain there are significant differences in new vs. old irons. My 10 year old Ping i5s go almost as long as my new iE1 irons (within a few yards), but I would attribute that to loft differences (EDIT: shafts are the same KBS Tours @ same length in both irons). New irons are lofted much stronger these days, typically for marketing and ego purposes.
Jan-Pierre Vidizzon
Jan-Pierre Vidizzon - 4 years ago
+Golf Monthly True, I guess it just really depends on the models you're comparing. s59 is a more blade-ish model vs. the 825 pro which has a bit of a cavity. The Mizuno is a full 2 points higher in MOI than the Ping. Interesting video, thanks again.
Golf Monthly
Golf Monthly - 4 years ago
The Ping S59 6-iron has 30 degrees of loft. Jake's 825-Pro and also the Ping i have 29, so while that 1 degree will account for a
few yards, we don't think it would make up the full 8-10 we experienced during launch monitor testing. The increased forgiveness of modern clubs was certainly the biggest thing we took away from the day.

Bubba only just recently took the S59's out of his bag. He seemed to do ok with 10 year old irons.
Golf Monthly
Golf Monthly - 4 years ago
True, but Bubba probably got new S59 heads with fresh grooves every season, we were using an original pre-loved set!
Jürgen Flunz
Jürgen Flunz - 4 years ago
Jakes Mizunos seem to be JPX-825 Pros, right? Comparing a Player's CB to a blade-like iron in terms of "springy faces" and "heel-toe-weighting" is like comparing space and fuel consumption of a 2016 Vauxhall Zafira to a 2006 Lamborghini Murcielago - it's just pointless...
Golf Monthly
Golf Monthly - 4 years ago
There's no easy way to compare old vs new, but the 825-Pro and S59 head sizes and shapes at address are identical, so this was hopefully a good way to show just how far technology and design has come on in the last decade.

phelps243255 - 4 years ago
Hmm interesting. My fittings and testing of clubs has shown there to be virtually no differences between total distance between blades and cavity backs but also there's no doubt the pimgs are spinning more as well. Although if they had been the same brand I'd wonder how much they would actually change. Food for thought and fun for sure. I'd be interested in the difference between purely middled strikes.
Ricci blackman

+Golf Monthly also the s59 had 1000 more rpm on the spin even after 10years wear
Golf Monthly
Golf Monthly - 4 years ago
The Mizuno 6-iron has 29 defrees of loft, while the Ping S59 6-iron has 30, so while that 1 degree will account for a couple of yards, the other 8-10 extra we experienced would be cheifly thanks to the thinner and springy faces.
phelps243255
phelps243255 - 4 years ago
It probably was pretty close in reality. I'd wager the lofts on the older irons aren't as low as their current sets. My current 8 iron has the same loft as my older 6 iron. I haven't checked their lofts in the videos but there is definitely not a 10 yard gap in any equal lofted irons in the last 10 years

something to note; the newer irons are trending stronger lofts which may give you that distance gap in the iron sets. Enjoyed the video. Thanks.

Glad you liked it! Jake's Mizuno 6-iron has 29 defrees of loft, while the Ping S59 6-iron has 30, so while that 1 degree will account for a few yards, we don't think it would make up the full 8-10 we experienced.

Wedge grooves were better for spin 5 years ago.. New regulations have changed the groove design so no, groove design hasn't improved..
Eric Linden
Eric Linden - 5 years ago
Or maybe your mizunos has less loft than the ping irons... Bad comparisons to be honest.
Golf Monthly
Golf Monthly - 4 years ago
We were comparing old vs new, and lower lofts to cater for higher, more forgiving initial launches are just part of the modern technology on offer. The Mizuno 6-iron has 29 defrees of loft, while the Ping S59 6-iron is 30, so while that 1 degree will account for a few yards, we don't think it would make up the full 8-10 we experienced.
Daz T

yes maybe wedges will get worn...but this is comparing models through technology and to be honest if guys like this are to be believed then we'd all be driving part 5s by now .Every model a company brings out goes 20 yards further than the last..and as far as the putter ..I'm surprised we could hole out more than 5 years ago..
Golf Monthly
Golf Monthly - 4 years ago
Both our testers' verdicts agree with you Daz, neither claimed to find 20 yards, just more forgiveness at the higher end of the set. As for putters, a good putt will always be a good putt, but it can never hurt to have a poorly struck 30footer finish a few feet closer to the hole than it would have 10 years ago!

Golf Monthly
Golf Monthly - 4 years ago
Perhaps if we were testing feel, but this was chiefly a data based test comparing launch monitor figures of new and old gear, and while the odd shot might be different, the averages after lots of balls would still lean towards the same verdict in our opinion.
