If the irons are new, the player is new, how come there is a old problem in the first place? You suck in other sports too?

hahaha.... yes.....
all rounder play every kind of sport master of none...

i just sold my Syard regular nspro too soft for me......i thought i could manage it well by increasing the irons to hit it a bit further but too for a fast down swing speed...

changed to a mizuno mp53....S200 shaft....
the most boring part is that it will require a run in of about 200 balls per iron...

its like going back to school....

practise....i have been going to JB a couple of weekends already.
Palm Villa, Palm Resort when they had that special promotion on.
Otherwise Greenfairways early Saturday morning, recently i played at Sembawang Country club, it is so treacherous....but it is cheap....

I dont really like to go to driving range cos it hurts my hand....miss hit i will hit the ground...
i will try to go to the one that hits off the grass at turf city..

Practise so much also still a 100s player....i started only last year July...dont know why keep getting stuck at 106-108

how about yourself?

Assuming that you are right; shaft characteristics change after a period of usage.

After 200 balls, the irons/shaft is 'runned' in. How about after another 200 balls again? Do you need to change clubs/shaft again?

i am definitely not too sure about that...but i dont think need to change shaft ...it is probably just to season the irons like going through BMT...hahhaa....

Somehow i find that the guy from golf house is right because when they are so new it is so stiff
and not enough flex like what it should because it is so new....

So MAYBE when it has been 'WARMED UP'...
i am definitely not too sure but i will go with it....
