This is based only on some time at the range, on course review coming after Fridays round.
I was fitted for the RBZ irons in Palm Dessert using the MATT system, very cool and very thorough session out there, I found a great deal on Gilt City for $100, Mike Amira is the pro out there. Really nice guy and very helpful. The MATT system if a very cool it really does show your flaws and how bad my set-up was.
I was fitted for 4-GW, steel stiff KBS shafts, 3deg upright, ½ over std. length, mid-size grip..Now I must say this is the first time I have been fitted for 3 deg upright.
Look: by now you should have seen enough pics the set up does not bother me at all, my previous clubs, Cally x-20 tours have a thick top line so that is not too much of an issue for me, the progressive offset is pretty noticeable but again not a big deal.
Feel: the lightweight shaft vs. the black/gold shafts I am playing now was a huge difference it took me several shots to get a sense of where the club was in my swing. After several strikes is started getting a feel for these, one thing I did notice was the sweet spot seems to be closer to the toe then center. The biggest thing is mis-hits sting as compared to the callys, this was a huge surprise for me as was the loss of distance on mis-hits, very noticeable.
Ball flight did tend to be higher on all the clubs but I was not seeing any distance gain at all, I would say they might even be a little shorter; again this was at the range. As most people have said the 4 iron is really a hybrid/driving iron. I love this club, I was cranking it, high shots, low shots, draw, fade..I love this club for the first time in 5 plus years my adams hybrid is out of the bag.
Really looking forward to playing this Friday to see what my results are on the course, as of now im pretty neutral. I understand this was a big change but going through the MATT system and getting a recommendation as thorough as that I was expecting a little more..
