They come in different color codes to suit your height and as it is cast and not forged, so its a bit difficult to adjust them..

Duval, you can try my X-20s on Saturday. See if you like 'em Smile The X-22s are going for a good price but I think the difference is minimal. If you like the X-20s, Golftiam has them for a S$950 in steel (which isn't a great price since I bought mine for about the same 3 months ago) - so you can try bargain if you are keen.

you can't see your ball flight! i feel the cage is more for seeing how the club feels at impact and whether you like how it swings rather than how far or straight you strike the ball. i just swung the mx200 today and it felt superb at impact and i managed to swing it very easy. Smile

just my 2 cents! Razz

and i'm looking for new clubs too! but there's this tricky business of what shafts and flex to go for and i guess the only way is to go for professional advice! haha did your coach tell you what to look out for?

Actually, how much will mx200 cost?

Supposedly, the X20s are slightly more forgiving than the X22s which are supposedly more workable but less forgiving than the X20s.
The Maltby (golfworks) playability factor rates the X20s as more forgiving than the X22s.

But this is mainly because the X22s have a slightly higher Actual Vertical Centre of Gravity (AVCoG) than the X20s.
But actually all this really means is that since the AVCOG of the X20 is lower than the X22, it is easier to "get the ball up" flying with the X20s vs the X22s.
So the X20 would fit a "sweeping" type or a swing more than the X22s which would be slightly more suited for a "down and thru" angle of attack type of golf swing..

Very Happy

Good idea to speak to your coach and fitter. They should be able to give you advise on your choice of irons. Try as many different irons and shaft combination.

I don;t change my irons very often so when I do change, I also make sure it is something I like visually.

Ya man! RSC was torching OCC range yesterday with my iron and I thought I need to get a stiffer shaft for myself affraid
I am seriously sold on the Right Sided Swing after seeing and feeling it.

Bro Lam, is it still considered as Right Sided for Lefty?

RSS does have its merits... as for me i set my weight more on my right side and swing up and around to my right side... we each have to find the swing to suit our build, tempo and temperament.. one you find it, practise more to ingrained it.
