Love mine Srixon irons got them last fall 2017.

Unless you know the lofts of all the clubs, it's really hard to draw any conclusions. Manufacturers don't follow the same rules. Some companies actually make their irons a full club longer than what we'd call standard. Callaway, for instance, makes stronger lofts than most other manufacturers. Also, the shafts are probably as important as the loft, if not more. The tester should have mentioned this to you. It looks to me like you've watched the video I recommended. Your swing looks really good. You're getting that early wrist set perfect. The Japanese "coach" knows his stuff. If you actually haven't watched the video, then you're still doing a great job with your swing. Way to go!!

This test has no real comparable data or info. Pretty pointless if this is all your testing or looking at when testing irons or any club.
cspin - 4 years ago
From what was shown on the video this was not a proper iron fitting.  You were probably fit for the proper shaft and length off video.  I highly doubt you were using the exact same shaft as in your Nike irons, as your swing speed was quite a bit higher with the other heads you tested.  No explanation other than not being warmed up for the lower swing speed on the Nike iron swings.  That, plus loft differential, is the reason why you were hitting the ball further.  More club head speed, less loft, lower spin numbers, and that explains it.  It would have been interested to see you hit the Nike irons again somewhere in the middle of the session.  And last, no consideration was given to where you were hitting the ball on the face, and lie angle.  

I am sure the Club Fix can do all of this for golfers.  The GC2 is a nice unit.  They did not have the HMT hooked up so no head or path data, just ball data.  I have  GC2 for my home simulator and would not use it to get fit on, unless my fitter was also using something to determine ball impact location on face (spray foot powder works well) and to check lie angles.  Shaft fitting is one of the most important variables, and again I'm assuming that was worked out off camera.  

Unless you are getting the new sticks for free,  you should have them build you a 6 or 7 iron to your specs and test it off turf before buying an entire set.  Hitting off matts is great for a controlled fitting, but turf interaction of the club head is important. 

Good luck and keep up to the good work on your channel BBG!

Yea like many others in the comments section I'm surprised you hit Titleist CB, Srixons, PXGs, etc. but didn't try Mizuno irons. Even if you preferred something else at the end of day you missed out on a great selection of premium clubs to test out. Different strokes for different folks I guess.

seems like you really enjoyed your day. thanks for sharing it with us. getting fit is a fun process.

it would be cool to see these type of places let you narrow down your decision (head, shaft, loft adjustments, lie angle, shaft length, grip) and then send you home with a 6i and 9i (driver, hybrid, etc) for a couple weeks. i know this is not traditional and would come with a price (i also know they don't do fittings with a 9i) my idea is people spend a lot of money on clubs and its a big decision both in the pocket and on the course. IMO spending a few extra hundred bucks upfront would help ease some of the "buyers remorse" and allow you to be confident in the decision. it would get you off that screen pounding balls and without someone over your shoulder the whole time. the ability to try it in real golf decisions and see if you could build a bond with those clubs. defiantly not traditional but maybe a great Shark Tank idea lol.

You should compare lofts instead of the club number. Some irons can have huge differences in lofts. So distance is not really comparable per a iron number basis.
Brian Popp
Brian Popp - 4 years ago
As a current 4 hdcp who got fitted at Cool Clubs 3 years ago and got the Callaway Apexs when I was a 11 hdcp. Don't focus on the distance as the lofts on most new clubs are far stronger than most "old clubs". Focus on the looks, feel, spin #s, and dispersion. Your fitter will help with the shafts, length, lie angles, etc. as you go.

As Carl has pointed out most clubs SHOULD go similar distances nowadays.

I'm a firm believer after playing with "game improvement" irons for 3 years that they aren't worth it unless 5i or higher. Too many times I have gone too long with my short irons (8-PW) as my game has gotten better just because I hit a pure shot and the "hot face" launched the ball. And that distance control is something I really put a premium on nowadays.

Go with a combo "player's" set of irons as you can easily handle it. GL with the new clubs.
BE BETTER GOLF - 4 years ago
I am using the tour yellow Zstar x now and sometimes the hallway chrome soft.
Brian Popp
Brian Popp - 4 years ago
Assuming that you and the fitter/builder went through all of the specs and the Srixon combo set was your best option for you currently then absolutely. Every golfer is different so I hold no name brand allegiances ... but sometimes clubs come out that are just hands down the best club for most better golfers like the TM M1. I feel like these Srixon irons are near the top for 2016 like the M1.

Also I hope you got a friendly price quote from getting the "45s" as the new "65s" are currently available. Usually you won't when going to a premiere fitter but it never hurts to ask.

Also I switched from a Bridgestone B330s to the Srixon Z Star XV. Has added 5-7 yards distance off the tee and slightly better control with the driver. Proof was last week when I won the long drive at a charity tournament with a 312 drive. Highly suggest you test a sleeve out.

GL and keep up with the great videos.

In my opinion peak height, backspin and distance should all be consider equally for a particular iron not the amount of loft?
Eric Robinson
Eric Robinson - 4 years ago
You have to consider loft because if the 6 iron I test adds 10 yards to my current 6 iron, I might think it's amazing... BUT it could have the same loft as my 5 iron. Then when I pull out my 5 iron, a club that's actually comparable to that 6 iron, I may get better results. So in the end of the day, yes get the clubs you like, but don't say "Well this 6 iron goes further than that 6 iron so it's better." Irons are each designed to go a certain distance, not maximum distance. You can always just hit a lower iron.
golfboy1989 - 4 years ago
Boom! Good choice! Got me a combo set of the 945s and 745s too and love them! The 945s are actually really forgiving for blades. Also totally agree with your thoughts on the Titleist clubs. Past few years they've been heavy and dead off the face.

invisaman75 - 4 years ago
You keep saying "went further" and "did not go very far". So was distance the primary reason you choose the Srixon irons? I thought irons were more about dispersion and getting the ball to a specific place on the green.
BE BETTER GOLF - 4 years ago
+invisaman75 you're right. The main reason I chose this was for feel distance and dispersion combined

Srixon are making the best irons at the moment. Performance + looks. Hard to beat. I'd probably throw the Bridgestone j15cb's into the mix as well - great looking clubs but are quite forgiving for their size. Honestly man, can't believe you didn't try any Mizunos!!! The new jpx900 tour look amazing.

Benny Frank the 3rd - 4 years ago
Interesting video Brandon. Thank you for doing this.
I have a few comments on this ;-)

1. They measured only ball data but no club head data, i.e. ball speed was measured and divided by efficiency (smash factor) to obtain club head speed.
2. Efficiency (smash factor) at 1.45 is set waaay too high (that would be a decent driver value for amateurs). Tour avg. for 6i is 1.38!
3. So your actual CHS is higher than shown.
4. At 1:40 you didn't "jump" on a 6 iron. As you said yourself, you just fatted shots 2-4 a little bit.
5. So your standard 6i shot is around 121 mph ball speed, 20° launch, peaking at 36y, 6200 rpm, 169y carry.
6. The results from other clubs differed because of strike, loft, shaft (length + type), make of club head. In that order.
7. He had you looking exactly where he wanted to: distance. LOL
8. That guy was more of a club salesman than a club fitter.

Despite all this this was far from pointless. You had a look at many club heads and a side-by-side test.
The Srixons you liked went about the same to a little longer than your (well-struck) Nike. Launch is lower, spin is lower, peak hight lower, descent angle flatter. Let's see how that plays out on the course... I hope they gave you a good deal at least :-)

Did he measure your Nike loft and compared?
Did you get a Swing DNA shaft fitting?
Lie and length fitting?
60DegreeLobWedge - 4 years ago
the lofts on new irons are stupid. You should really be comparing the ends of the set, not the 6 iron. what is the point of a 190yd 6iron if it ships with a 40 degree PW and a 17 degree 3 iron? you'll need to buy 5 wedges to fill in the gaps and you will replace 5 down with hybrids. my grandpa's old blades had a 50 degree 9 iron and 20 degree 1 iron. you could bag that entire set and only needed 1 wedge.

Carl Bunch
Carl Bunch - 4 years ago
Comparing irons without knowing lofts is pointless.

Here are the actual lofts of the clubs you hit (with distances), ranked by loft:
Callaway Apex 27* 194yds
PXG 311 27* 187
Taylormade PSI 27.5* 186
PXG 311 Tour 28* 187
Srixon 945 29* 183
Callaway Apex Pro 30* 187
Titleist AP2 30* 179
Ping I Blade 30.5* 187
Titleist CB 714 31* 178
Nike VR Pro 31* 172 (your current set)

Guess why you hit the Callaway so much farther ?
Because it's essentially a 4 1/2 iron compared to your current Nike 6 iron !

Proper club fitting starts with LIE angle determination on an impact board.
THEN you compare irons OF THE SAME LOFT.

Carl Bunch very good catch and not to mention the spin rates too
Carl Bunch
Carl Bunch - 4 years ago
Because the loft angle in irons is what determines your distances, regardless of iron manufacturer (assuming same shaft length).
Comparing irons with different loft angles is pointless.
It's like comparing a 7 iron to a 4 iron, you learn nothing.
The 4 iron will always be longer with a greater dispersion.
Thom Bendtsen
Thom Bendtsen - 4 years ago
Carl Bunch how does loft matter? If the ball goes where I want it and I like the feel and the flight, what does it matter?

I play a set of Hogan Apex PCs I got from Ebay....my 6 iron is 33.5....the 4 iron is 26.5.
To me, it really doesn't matter if one manufacturer has longer irons, because if they jigger with the lofts, it's a whole different club. With an iron, you only want to hit it a certain distance anyway. The one club where that all goes out the window is the driver, of course.

+Dave That's because that club isn't really a 6 iron. We must look at loft not number when measuring spin.
Dave Parker
Dave Parker - 4 years ago
There's the spin numbers to take into consideration as well. If the spin's too low then stopping them on a green will become an issue. Take the spin numbers you get with your Nike 6 iron when your hitting it into a green at your comfortable distance. Then use that as a bench mark for any other iron. Those PSI's for instance would only average 5200 backspin (removing the anomoly 6000 spin shot). That's low back spin for a 6 iron struck by a low marker / good ball striker. 6000 would be a nice avg. Great comparrison
